that of settling the big coal miners strike He was called to this exacting duty by President Roosevelt and more than any other man on the commission had to do with the amicable adjustment of the

60000 for Thtr i teenth Street Church J Declinedt The Trustees of the congregation of St Patricks church have declined to accept offer of 60000 for the church property at the northwest corner of Thirteenth and Market streets The offer was made by real estate owners presumably in the interest of the Penn sylvauia Railroad Company which desires additional terminal facilities in this vicinity Offers have been made for the real estate on the block between Main and Market and Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets It was exclusively announced in the Kentucky Irish American of last week that negotiations were on for the purchase of St Patricks church property The Trustees rightly consider that the offer of 00000 is too t small and they value the property at 100000 The Trustees are prepared to jin wait until they are offered this t pPatricksshape and the building will last many generations longer and the congregation can afford to wait Many members of of Patricks are opposed to selling thepproperty at any price The church has been at this corner for fiftyone years and about 120000 has been spent to nbuildhurry to sell and unless the railroad company comes to terms the property will never be soldaaAs1 the event the property is sold theamatter has not been discussed formallyCI cThe1 street near Fifteenth in the old ceme ry and the church may go thereISCALLY BETTER a-

in him personalt and in his work but congratulated him on securing a better position Mr Murphys successor for the present willt probably be Mr Con C Murphy Chief Deputy Assessor who has been in the office for twenty years or more The General Council will elect a City Assessor for a term of four years in November next when the new board comes into office Assessor Murphys conduct ofthe affairs of the City Assessors office has been admirable Politics were not con sidered by him He only looked for competency Most of his deputies and assistants have worked with him for twenty years He first went

set forth By reason this system real estate dealers and the generally are greatly conven fenced Mr Murphy has been largely instru in extending the citys boundaries during the past twelve years In the face of great opposition from wealthy men and politicians he annexed strip strip of territory and some suburban towns including South Louisville Clifton Parkland The wisdom of this Is now evident All the credit for taking in these suburbs belongs to him Since the adoption of the present con- titution of Kentucky the assessment of property has become more complicated difficult but Mr Murphy arose to the emergency and his work in this line has been of incalculable benefit to the is people Formerly under the old con stitution business personalty was not taxed as at present The city Sinking atj und collected tax fifromand many merchants paid just as much or little tax as they pleased while thehcottage owner and real estate owner paid the full burden When the ad valorem system was put Into

Government Preparations For Relief Inadequate Without OjltslUo Aide LANDLORDS IBMBST IK THI WORLD daitytromWestern Ireland says a cablegram to th New York Journal it is now certain that the failure of the potato crop will plunge those districts into more bitter sad acute distress than has been experienced in halfa century In spite of the sneering references to the impending period ot want by the Government organs it i known that the realization of what the conditions in the stricken districts willji be is complete enough in England to in preparationforn when it iis combined with that to be afforded by the more prosperous sections of Ireland will fall far short of the needs of the situation is clearly shown by those who have recently visited the counties of Connaught Connemara and Meath While it is admitted that the full effects of the failure of the potato crop will not be felt until the end of January the misery want and suffering among the people of the afflicted districts are already very great Comparatively destitute in their most prosperous seasons the conditions of the clayeylandcounties is beyond the comprehension of those who are accustomed to see the lowest mark of destitution registered by poor clothing and insufficient food While the cattle belonging to the wealthy land lords are fattening on the fertile tracts ofJJ pasture from which the tenants have 1 been driven the tillers of the arid patches their families are actually starving Starving tooJn the very beginning of their winter with their crop a total failure and the only chance of continued existence lying with the relief committees and Boards of Guardians who have ad milled their inability to successfully deal with the situation A letter written recently by the Bishop of Meath gives some insight into the situation in the county The Bishop writes IIIf one were not in practical touch with the world and did not see the reality things he would hardly believe in the existence of such poverty in Meath It a county of large area thinly populated and has a richness that would than fulfill the blessings of Isaac for moreihis i son The auctioneer who fills the place subSheriff in Meatb advertises

the thistles and the nettles flourishing What a dreadful picture it But while the problem awaits solution the poor must not be allowed to starveEvery unprejudiced visitor to the stricken counties ascribes the same reason for the periodic seasons of want which arc about to reach their terrible climax of destitution and suffering this yearthe tenant driven to the unproductive lands which can not be depended upon Sir Arthur MacDonald in a letter declares that the Government does not half appreciate the seriousness of the situation in Connaught The failure of potato crop in the West of Ireland occurred regularly and persistently since 1845 and the Government is as on helpless as ever he declares Another writing to a Dublin paper from Con naught says IIln the West the humble peasants are face to face with the dread spectre famine The potatoes have failed this year on the miserable patches of lead to which the tenants have been driven The potato is the mainstay of the farmers of Connaugbt As a rule it stands between St them and hunger or the poor house and when it faUsas It has failed this year hunger and want stare them in the face The landlords of the West are the mesa hardest cruelest of all Nowhere such ruthless blood suckers to be of found They have crowded the people into the barren places and have left whole stretches of fertile land under the herds and hogs Those who have seen wretched land on which the people live are amazed that any one would think extracting money from people who raise a living from such a soil Yet out the poor lands of Connaught almost million is taken in rent The land Is exceedingly rich d Con naught says another and yet the dig is harrowing to contemplate- As an explanation of the recurring rlfailuresponslble for the

resignation of Daniel F Murphy who leaves the city service on March i after twenty years faithful and highly intelligent service Mr Murphy privatealife is one worthy of emulation His career should be an inspiration to the young man and especially to the Catholic young man It demonstrates what a man can di when he leads a correct life Mr Murphy is a credit to his race Going into the City Assessors office twentysix years ago in a menial position in six years he rose to be chief Assessor and for twenty years has filled the most responsible posi Lion in the city During all of that time not one word has been said against his official record On the contrary all men of all parties have praised him though his work was difficult affecting as it often did the pocketbooks of many for nc man likes to pay taxes Had Mr Murphy inclined to be dishonest in making valuations of real estate and personal property he could probably have doubled his salary ol 3500 every year but he preferred the straight way He gave every man a square deal When a Re publican Mayor came into office a few years ago he had experts ex amine the citys books and this Republican Mayor George D t Todd elected by an A P A Gen eral Council in a written communi cation to those who had elected him said that the City Assessors office under Dan F Murphy was the best conducted of any depart ment in the City Hall and that the City Assessor was a model official All the Mayors of Louisville Chas D Jacob Booker Reed Henry Tyler George D Todd Charles P Weaves and Charles F Grainger have commended Mr Murphys official work and he has deserved all the praise he has received Assessor Murphy treated corpora tions just the same as he treated the humblest individual He made his assessments equitable and his work was always sustained by the Board of Equalization of City Taxes It will be hard to fill his place Mayor Grainger did the I right thing when he consented to allow the Assessors brother Con C Murphy to fill out the unex pired term The General Council will elect a successor in November The Fidelity Trust Company the llargest corporation of the kind south of the Ohio river Is to be congratulated in securing the serv ices of a man like Mr Murphy to manage its real estate department He will do his work well While the Kentucky Irish American regrets that Mr Murphy is to leave the citys employ we are glad he IS I c to obtain more lucrative employment It is seldom that a city employe dies and few resign The resignation has created as much comment and regret as ally even that has happened in the City Hal for ten years The work performed by the Trus tees and members of St Joseph Orphans Asylum every year in Louisville is to be commended The society is made up of about iio of the best German Catholics in tbe city They tenderly care for the orphans and the trustees conduc their affairs in an orderly and busi ness like manner Mr Frank A Geher President of the society and his associates are to be congratu latedin having such a devoted body of men connected with their organ ization It is a credit to the Ger man Catholics of Louisville and Kentucky The corporationsmine owners railroads and others after getting all they wanted out of Gov Pea body of Colorado left him with the bag to hold They promised to seat him as Governor if he appointee Supreme Judges to their liking and after he made the appointment they deserted him The corpora tions knew that to seat Peabody and oust Adams who had been lawfully elected would produce a revolution and they deserted their man Peabody and his warring Adjutant are done for in Colorado and it is well that such is the case The statement published in one ofthe afternoon papers that a con vention would be held to nominate candidates for Mayor and other important offices at the November electionis misleading and probably purposely so The candidates will be nominated at a primary election and every one will have a square deal Nothing but a primary would satisfy the rank and file and the Democratic City and County Committee is well aware of this factThe next great American Exposition will be that at Portland Ore to commemorate the expedition of Lewis and Clark This Exposition movemennt was started by Daniel JcAllen an Irishman of Portland everal years ago and his ideas were carried out The Exposition will open June i and will close October 15 1905 Mr MeAllen who is a prominent dry goods mer hant has written a statement con cerning the Exposition which is receiving wide publicity This is the last year of Mayor Sraingers administration He has accomplished a great deal for the city during the post Vtriong other things tbreeYersI ati public library built a r jail prepared to remove the School of Reform to the country built many new streets and created sa public sentiment in favor of a bet ter sewer system Mayor Grain gers administration has been en tirely creditable HiberInians olutions asking the business men of that city to refrain from displaying posters in their show window depicting low and overdone carica tures of any race such for instance as Dan McAvoys play stopped by Justice Fitzgerald of the New York Supreme Court The A 0 H of Louisville might well follow the example of their Utica brethren The Superintendent of the Indiana Reformatory at Jeffesonville finding that it would be unpopular to insist on the passage of the bill requiring school books to be printed in the reformatory has given uj the project He will only ask that trades schools be established it order that the prisoners may find useful employment The school book scheme was unpopular and it is doubtful if the Legislature would enact such a law The City of Louisville for the year of 1905 will spend 4242595 on its public
