Course of Oath olio Societies During the Year I Increase in Membership and Treasury BalancesOnu8o + Congratulation rWidows Orphans and FallenI Brethren the Recipients of Benefactions SPLENDID OUTLOOK FOR THEM ALL The Catholic societies of Louisville in their respective spberes have done excel lent work during the year now practi cally closed The best evidence of thisI 18 that not one of them shows a falling off In membership On the contrary all JI show a material increase They have all done good work hence they attract thtt attention of those good Catholics who are not previously collated with these ordersFirst and foremost in the good work is the St Vincent de Pauls Society with sixteen conferences scattered throughout as many different parishes In the city of Louisville Only God knows how much good Ibis society has accomplished during the past year Its members have fed the hungry clad the nakedadvised those to whom admonitions were necessary and have comforted the widow and cared for the orphan During the past year St Williams conference came Into existence and While It is the youngest it is one that Is doing earnest and intem gent work Each of the other confer cnces shows an increase but that Is not eneugh Every Catholic man should affiliate with the St VJ1cent de Paul Society in hlaown parish It Is not asocial affair by any means It 1 1an organization of Catholic men banded together to do the work of our Lord and Savior The duties that entail upon one are Inconsiderable in comparispn with the spiritual benefits that accrue i The Ancient Order of Hibernians is another society1 of Catholic then that has 1- iJOnt well diJtintb pjl9t4II1tDdhlch deserves well of Catholics Like their bretheren of St Vincent de Paul they dry the eyes of widows and comfort thet4 orphans when their natural protectors have been taken away At the lame time the Ancient Order of Hibernians has social features which endear It to its numbers It inculcates the spirit of brotherly love and teaches lasting lessonsp on patriotism Of course one must be a practical Catholic to become a member of this order Never will he become less a Catholic for having belonged to it Each of the four divisions have made inIcreases in membership and in a financial way during the year now almost closed The Young Mens Institute is another organization of Catholics that must not be lost sight of in glancing over tbe years events Young wen of sterling qualities from every parish are members of this order Whether it be Trinity in the East Mackin in the Vest or Satolli in the center of the city all are working w toward the same end For God and fore country Mackin Council owns its own club house Trinity is erecting hersjj and it will not be long before the hers of Saolli will begin to think about Frf theirs if they have not already thought about it The Young Mens Institute in p Louisville has kept many young men from going to perdition It has afforded them legitimate places of amusement and has turned their energies into proper channels It has room to grow Each year young men leave school and are en of titled to membership in the order The young men are the hope and the bulwark of any ationbThe Knights of Columbus have also done good work in Louisville during the 1 past year Moreover they have expanded andjrtve assisted in forming councils bflRiin and outside the State Many of them are men of influence in commercial and State affairs In this society they learn to know each other and to lend a helping hand to their bretheren Louisg Ville Council now numbers nearly 600 members Still there is room for it to grow It will grow tqo because its officersare on the alert and know when and where to seek for recruits The Catholic Knights of America a society practically founded in Louisville has also made material increases during the year The panic ipso you jsay call it of the past year has been pissed by j and Overcome What with the Uniform Rank add the renewed

itself felt in more ways than one during the past year Its membership Iis constantly growing and its scope fis gradually extending What its members have done toward providing comfortable quarters for girls and young women iin straitened circumstances can not be con jecturedThe hts of St John in Louisville commonly called the Roman Knights Iis made up almost exclusively of German Catholics Like

of the new But after all the old and the new year are merely figures of speech Yet we can not help thinking of the days of mirth and the days of pathos that have come to us during the past 365 days Some of our friends mayhap those nearest and dearest have passed into eternity Perchance some of those we considered our best friends have become exalted and forgetting their friendships for us in their prosperity look down upon us or neglect us altogether While we can and ought to forgive those we can not forget It is part of the scheme of our salvation to learn by experience not to put all our trust in earthly friends Yet this is a good old world It has its sunshine and shadows its tears and laugh ter We enjoy the sunshine all the more after lowering clouds have threatened us Possibly darkness may hover over you now But remember the sun is always shining somewhere Your day will come probably when least expected Now is the time to make your good resolutions Make up your mind not to despair no matter how poor or ill you may be Be charitable to your neighbor faithful to your church and your society True to your name your country and your God feUiplat tome and steadfastA eer abroad I PULL FOR OUR CITY During the year now drawing close to its end Louisville and her people have enjoyed unprecedented prosperity It may be said that iit has been the greatest year in her history both from a commercial and building standpoint The city has lots of room to grow and she iis growing New interurban lines are not only putting Louisville in close contact with the outlying towns- t they are also extending her borders into hitherto impossible ter ritory Besides this new factories are springing up oh every band and our merchants and manufacturers are entering upon new lines of business and are meeting with success Our citizens are now working band in hand to make the metropolis of Kentucky also the metropolis of the South Louis yule has had no serious labor troubles during the past year an indication that our employers gen jrally are fair and just to their tmployes Neither has she had any serious business failures nor catas trophes involving the loss of many lives In fact Louisville is taking on the proportions and achieving the acumen of a great city not in booms nor bounds but normally steadilyAt the members of the Commercial Club and Board of Trade are at work planning a homecoming for next summer If is intended to invite former resi dentsot Louisville and Kentucky ikVisit us and see what progress we have made Jscity and State during their absence This is a splendid method of advertising our city and bringing her advantages before the people of the country at large Former Kentuckians are i scattered through every State in the TJnlqq Many have been away WBirt f tflirtq forty aWiJfifty years Dianeefof these will f cog naze the old town when they return ad see its vast and varied improve fcats It behooves all pur people p mate thiek hafgs OIJfp If we want to be t oc cessful ourselves we must help others to success Therefore let ius all endeavor to make Loutsvil more than ever a growing city and- a good place in which to work and to live STOP THE MASSACRE The heartstrings of mothers have been well nigh rent in twain as the result of accidents due to the care less handling of gunpowder and firearms in Louisville during the present week There is absolutely no occasion for noisy demonstrations on Christmas day least of all for the use of firearms and gunpowder At least two deaths resulted from carelessness some call it but in reality from the criminal negligence of the civic and State authorities Year after year this slaughter of the innocents goes on Men and women roll up their eyes in horror at the story of Herods butchery of innocent children but these same men and women permit their own sons to celebrate Christ mas by the use of firearms ThatI many more are not killed is miraculous That EO many are killed is deplorable but the massacres can be and must be Stopped There is no time like the present to stop this killing Murder is a sin crying to heaven for vengeance and the authorities who can put a stop to this wholesale slaughter but who refuse are as guilty as if they fired the shot The civic authorities stopped the sale of blankcartridge btitthesale of lloaded cartridges permitted How ridiculous 1 In the name of the mothers of our fair city and State the Kentucky Irish American asks Mayor Barth the General Council and the State Legislature to have enacted such laws as will protect the children from worse than assassination SEWERS BADLY NEEDED =There is nothing Louisville needs worse than an improved sewerage system The town has grown so rapidly that the sewers have become utterly inadequate and in parts of the city where sewers are most needed there are none at all This condition is a menace to the health of every citizen and in the interest of public welfare everybody should aid in bringing about a condition that will remedy the matter as speedily as possible Mayor Barth and special committees from the Commercial Club Board of Trade and General Council have the matter under consideration now Their present plan is the election or ap pointment of a nonpartisan com mission to supervise the construc tion of sewersjand the expenditure- of money that will have to be paid for them This is as it should be- The sewers are for the benefit of Republicans as well as Democrats and it is only fair and Just that a nonpartisan commission supervise the work But the first and greatest work is to get the money To do this a bond issue will have to be votedupon by the people Citizens who have regard for the health of their families will not hesitate to vote for the bond issue when they know that the money will be judiciously and honestly expended FATHER CRONINS WILL It is said that the last will andI testament of a mantis a reflex of his character Undoubtedly this Is the case with the late and

those qualities ht exhibited in lifecharity and broad mindedness His bequests include not only the seminary wherein he concluded his i studies for the priesthood but also orphan and insane asylums deaf mute homes and maternity hospitals and institutes for the feeble- minded Further be it said to his credit Father Cronins bequests induced German and Polish institutions as well as those of his own beloved Irish His shares in the Buffalo Catholic Publication Company the title of the corporation publishing the Catholic Union and Times he bequeaths to Bishop Col- ton or whomsoever his successor may be for the purpose of founding a parochial school in the parish of the Ascension North Tona wanda N Y The latter bequest however he explains is not conditional but is an absolute bequest to the Bishop of Buffalo Father Cronin was indeed a faithful steward He multiplied his talents and then left his savings to the poor and forsaken NEED FOR REFORM As this is the season of the year when thinking people consider what resolutions to make for the ensuing year it might not be amiss to suggest that the editor of the Gaelic American resolve to quit finding fault He has a wonderful fund of information on things Irish and British but he is unalterably biased in his opinions against any thing that he is not allowed to rule It might as well be understood now as at any other time that the pebple of Ireland will not sub mit to the rule of a one man government whether the seat of that government be in London Dublin Castle or in the office of the Gaelic American Editor Devoy has not only fought and sougjttJ confound the HbhVoTin E Redmond and his colleagues in the Irish Parliamentary party but he his fought everything looking tdward the advancement of the Irish race both at home and abroad unless he hap pened to be head and front of the movement In all kindness and consideration the Kentucky Irish American asks its contemporary to be more tolerant of the opinions o others He is able and aggressive No one doubts that But hie becomes childish when he declines to play if he isnt ItII Dr Douglas Hyde will lecture in Milwaukee on the night of Tuesday January 9 under the auspices- of the Ancient Older of Hibern Ians of that city His subject will be tbe Gaelic Revival Dr Hydes lectures are drawing large crowds everywhere and are attended by the most intelligent people of every nation It might not be a bad idea for the local Hibernians to secure his services for a lecture here The Kentucky Irish American for itself and in behalf of the Hibernians of this city extends sympathy to the Hon James E Dolan of Syracuse National President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians on the death of his venerable mother which occurred last week Mrs Dolan was a devout Catholic a
