Cardlnalato Has Boon Brought Into Politics Interesting Correspondence Be tween President And Am bassador Storer Archbishop of St Paul Favored by McKinley And Roose velt SOME VERY INTERESTING READING 9 One of the most interesting events In higher politics and Incidentally church politics which rarely comes to light was brought out during the past week by the publication of the correspondence between President Roosevelt and Mr Belamoy Storer of Cincinnati former ambassador for the United States at important Eu ropean courts The frank manner in which the President and his form er ambassador discuss their differ ences is a revelation to politicians and It is to the great credit of both Mr Bellamy Storer was recently ambassador at Vienna and was re moved from the diplomatic service of the United States by the President on the alleged ground that he and his wife had meddled in Catholic church politics by trying to promote the Interest of the Most Rev John Ireland Archbishop of St Paul who was said to be an aspirant for the position of Cardinal Mr Storer gracefully retired from the diplo matic service and said nothing but upon his return to Cincinnati he wrote a private circular to the mem hers of tho Cabinet setting forth this reasons for resigning at the re quest of the President He sent a copy to President Roosevelt He con tended that he had done nothing wrong but was carrying out the wishes of the President whilst Min ister at Rome in trying to promote the interest of Archbishop Ireland It was intended that Mr Storers statement should be private but It was made public and the President after the publication made all of the correspondence public and Mr Storer in kind made other letters public between himself his wife and the President which make most in teresting reading- It may be stated that Mrs Belamy Storer Is a Longworth and the Pres idents daughter married into that family President Roosevelt and the Storers were very Intimate for a long time and the President is quoted as addressing a letter to Mrs Storer in the term My Dear Maria It would require several col umns of space Indeed a page or more to give the correspondence en tire between the President and Mr Storer Suffice It to give extracts Mr Storers Is to the effect that he tried to promote the Interests of Archbishop Ireland after being di rected to do so by President McKin ley and afterward by Mr Roosevelt Mr Storer says The crux of the whole matter which led to my removal was the action taken by Mrs Storer and my self with regard to the promotion of Archbishop John Ireland of St Paull to the cardinlate In my letter to the President and Cabinet I cite let ters written by Mr Roosevelt to me speaking in the highest terms of Mgr Ireland and expressing the per sonal wish that the country might profit by his promotion to the Car dinlate I had an audience with Pope Pius X at which I transmitted a verbal note the basis of which had been given me by President Roosevelt I was particularly care ful In its preparation and after transcribing It Into English I trans lated It Into Frenoh and conveyed It to the Pope The communication was as follows He said to me and authorized me to say to your Holiness that the Archbishop of St Paul Is his personal friend and that he possessed his whole confidence as a prelate and as a citizen that he earnestly de sired for Mgr Ireland all the honors of the church and that he would view with the greatest pleasure and satisfaction the elevation to the rank of Cardinal of Mgr Ireland Everything was all right until a section of New York churchmen began to agitate for tho elevation of another Archbishop than Mgr Ireland They pointed out to Pres ident Roosevelt that the New York prelate bad at least as much claim to the hut as the archbishop of St Paul This resulted in much per turbation at the White House and letters were sent to me by Presi dent Roosevelt pointing out that what might be aPPrOPriate as the opinion of a would come with a bad grace as President Mr Storer then goes on to say that in speaking for Archbishop Ire of the United States land he was not acting in his offi cial capacity but merely as an American Catholic and continuing says VI knew in the entire transaction that I was not preeentlrij the official views of the rre ldentThls sep personalsidesMcKinley did lhe same thing He 0fMgrlrlland1 ident ot the United SUtee Mr n Ili Roosevelt favored the elevation of the Archbishop but be did not do eo under the great seal of the United States All that was perfectly clear and there was no chance for mis construction On my word I thought I was obeying the personal request of Theodore Roosevelt when I presented his oral note to Pope Plus X- Mrs Storer showed a letter from VicePresident Roosevelt dated July 13 1900 In which the reason for the transfer of the Storers from Mad rid to Vienna was made clear Mrs Storer had requested the transfer because of the health of her son who was suffering from a pulmonary complaint and could not visit her on account of the climate of Madrid In the letter VicePresident Roose velt states that he would urge the transfer particularly because of this factPresident Roosevelt says he never authorized Ambassador Storer to make a statement to the Pope that he would like to see Arohblshop Ire land made a Cardinal He says he has the greatest respect and faith in tho Archbishop of St Paul and personally would do all In his pow er to see him elevated but Roose velt would not for a moment think of meddling in the matter officially- A cablegram from Rome in this connection says Since the recall of Bellamy Stor or from the post of Ambassador of the United States to AustriaHun gary last March several attempts have been made to induce the Vat ican authorities to set forth what pressure It any had been brought to bear upon them from Roosevelt to make Archbishop Ireland a Car dinal and today the Vatican declar ed semiofficially It could make no such statement as President Roosevelt never had asked anything through official channels It was declared that while several Ameri cans who declared they spoke with President Roosevelts authority had attempted to influence the giving of IRISH A3IERIAN GAL 2 the red hat they did not agree on the Archbishop to be honored The Vatican authorities do not consider that President Roosevelt was respon sible for these recommendations VALUED CITIZEN DEAD John P ByrneHad Been Prom- Inent For Many Years John T Byrne whose death was recorded on Monday last was one of the best citizens of Eoulsvllle He had served with

Journal were startled last Sunday by the pastor Father Francis A Gaffney O P announcing that the Provlncal had requested him to ac cept the pastorage of St Patricks church at Columbus Ohio The change was wholly unexpected by the pastor himself and by the congre gatlon as Father Gaffney was much beloved by his congregation and as his term as pastor would not ex pire until next Easter after which time he was to go to Rome on mission for the Dominican or4 Like a true son of St Dominic while regretting to sever ties which were congenial and pleasant he accepted the request of his superior as a com mand and on last Tuesday left Memphis for a short stay in Nash ville prior to his assuming charge in Columbus O The Domlninicans have always been great favorites in Memphis Their great services to the sick and the dying during the great pestilence of the past and the great sacrifices of lives of their mem bers in so administering have made them very popular with Catholics Protestants and Jews The Domin ican habit commands more respect and veneration in Memphis than pos sibly anywhere else in the country Father Gaffney is well known in Louisville his first station after his ordination in

round numbers about 215000 The total length of the sewer is 125180 feet Tho cost of the sewer on both sides of the street is 177 per foot and the cost for one side of the street Is eightysix cents per foot Under the Indiana law property owners pay for sewers according to the front soot of their lots and the owners of a twentyfive foot lot will be assessed 2725 under the New Albany system New Albany has always been without a sewer system until now and this Important improvement will add greatly to the health and com fort of the inhabitants Although the system has not yet been officially accepted by the contractors It will be accepted soon The sewers were ordered by a Democratic Council and an effort has been made in cer tain quarters to repudiate the debt but this effort will no doubt fall The work has been well and satis factorily performed It is creditable to New Albany that she has taken this advanced step She is Just a littlo ahead of Louisville In provid- Ing this very necessary

Sabbath and they ap pearto be right Even the preach ers who are in favor of Sunday clos ing make little complaint if the sa loons close during church hours The leading salopnkeepers seem to favor the idea of Sunday closing until 1 oclock in the afternoon County Attorney Bingham an nounces that he will prosecute the saloonkeepers who violate the law and will depend upon the Police Department for evidence The police made no complaint that any saloon keeper violated the law last Sunday In selling anything but soft drinks as laid down in Judge McCanns de cision NEW LAW FOR ALIENS Congress Has

been said lately about the charitable institutions of Louisville on account of foundation of the new Juvenile court under tho direc tion of County Judge Charles A Wil son The statutes of Kentucky give the County Judge authority to send incorrigible children to certain pub lie or private institutions for correc tion until they are of age But lo and be hold After the Juvenile court was organized and ready for business Judge Wilson found that he had no place to send wayward girls except to the Convert of the Good Shdepherd aCJathollc In existencefor cftrotPreposterous said many good women and men who have or aro said to have religious scruples to send wayward Protestent girls to a Catholic Institution They might bjl converted to Romanislm Judgo V son is a non Catlnolic but he expl ed that there was no other pine send such girls He further explain ed that the Sisters took care of such girls without charge to the city 01 to the State or county Then the good people who thin they have a

years ago organized a society for the care of chlldiand other dependents and since theirthe Sisters have been caring for such childrenWith all the boasted progressive ness of the Evangelical churches in Louisville they have never thought until now that It was necessary to found a home for incorrigible girls It seems they were under the impres sion that tho House of Refuge was good enough But the moment the u law gave the County Judge authority under the juvenile act to send such children to a place other than the House of Refuge tho sects had a spasm fearing that all incorrigibles would be sent to the Home of the Good Shepherd Judge Wilson very candidly at a meeting of those interested in the foundation of a home for Protestant girls told those assembled that he would continue to send waywards to the Good Shepherd home until a ho was provided for those who were j Catholics He declined the advicl some of the most earnest ones send children to the House RefugeThe movement to build a

KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN33S Weal Green Slrttt BSjsSSifeSiUNION TRADES seals COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY DECEMBER u 15 1906 r TAXPROBLEM AGAIN e The gentlemen of the Hoard of Trade and Commercial Club who were appointed as a joint committee to Investigate and report on the problem of taxation for merchants c and manufacturers have made their report and it has been published with a great flourish of trumpets The right of the city of Louisville to suspend the universal system of ad valorem taxes which obtains throughout the Commonwealth for a license tax system for Louisville merchants and manufacturers is now before the Court of Appeals for il nal adjudication Whether the report from the gentlemen from the hoard of Trade and Commercial Club was made to influence the decision which is soon to be forthcoming will not be discussed here The Kentucky Irish American has heretofore called attention to the unfairness of the proposed changes in our municipal taxing laws as ad Vocatcd by men of wealth high in t grity and great business capacity such as Mr William A Robinson whose name heads the list The com mittee finds of course that the proper system of taxation for mer hants and manufacturers would be to allow them to pay a license tax instead of a tax on the value of their goods on September of each year us they pay now They argue that mer cantile business and manufactures vould be promoted by the license tern and finally that the revenue Lhe city from merchants and man i turers would be greater than it is at present under the ad valorem systeroIt strange indeed that these merchants and manufacturers who Igned the report would advocate a stem of taxation which would in lise their taxes They have not in the habit of advocating res of this sort The fact is merchants and manufacturers a system which will allow p 4iny what they please They fitly want the burden placed upon real estate Some merchants and manufacturers get a notion in their heads that they are public because they employ a teen or many men and they want the laws so framed that they may escape taxation as much aspos sible They are not to be blamed for this but they can not expect Vthe public to stand for such a sys tem The fact is the rid valorem system js just to the majority There is no system which can be devised which will be absolutely fair to nil tax payers The license system has been tried in Louisville before and it was a failure Let merchants and manufacturers pay like other peo ple DISniSSAL OF NEGRO TROOPS The reasons given by Secretary of Var Taft for the dismissal from they of these battalions of negro ops for committing an outraged murder at Brownsville Texas owe clearly that the President was justified in making the order The Secretary of War handles the sub ject dispassionately and after recit ing the facts he says Under these circumstances the question arises Is the Government helpless Must it continue in its mico a battalion many of the Inbers of which show their will less to condone a crime of a cap F character committed by from ten twenty of its members and put n a front of silence and ignorance vhich enables the criminals to escape ust punishment These enlisted cell took the oath of allegiance to he Government and were to be used under the law to maintain its suprem ncy Can the Government properly therefore keep in its employ for the purpose of maintaining law and or fef any longer a body of men from cio per cent of whom can plan fd commit murder and rely upon lie silence of a number of their com pinions to escape detection Continuing the Secretary of War reasons that it would be unsafe to have such men sent anywhere to preserve order lie says on this point Might not any community into which the War Department should serid this battalion in which it is faiowh that there ore from nine to twenty murderers justly complaint n the battalion is not a proper Instrument for maintaining the su liremacy of the law Could we properly send a battalion to the Philippines of Cuba to maintain cage or furnish an example of or Irly conduct1 If a similar outbreak ere there to oeeur could we TeM ye brselves trora respwnsibdlity for if ll on the theory that we could not de tect the particular ten or twenty who was guilty of the first murder United States Senators represent ing States with large negro popula tions may rant as much as they please about the alleged unlawful dismissal of these negro troops but the President was clearly justified nK shown by the statement of his Secretary of War Judge Taft THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE I For ages attempts have been made and doubtless will continue to be made to promote temperance by parliamentary and legislative enact ments both in England and in the United States As the Irish Standard of Minneapolis discussing the tern perance question in its leading edi torial truly says the cause of tem perance is growing but it can never be aided by a meddlesome interfer once with what people believe to be matter wholly within their per sonal rights It does not follow that there is not a field for the temper ence worker but his work is with the individual and through the individual with the community not with the politicians The work of such a man as Father Mathey is incomparably more important and lasting than the work of those who have attempted to make men good by law Let those who are sincerely desirous of helping humanity employ their ef forts along lines that will do some good Such efforts may not attract as much attention but they will be ever so much more effectual They may not at once attract public ap plause but they are sure to result in something besides public scorn Hero in Kentucky recently we have seen attempts to enforce socalled temperance statutes without avail for the very reason that public senti anent does not sustain an attempt to make men temperate by legisla tIe action Moral suasion can ac complish more in a week than a written statute can ever accomplish in snaking men temperate CONVICT MADE GOODS Congress by a practically unani mous vote pased a bill introduced by Mr Hunt a member from Missouri limiting the regulation of in terstate commerce between the several States in articles manufactured by convlct labor or in any prison or reformatory Congressman Swagar Shelley of Louisville spoke for the bill and Mr Hunt the au thor of the bill is a practical stone mason Under the the Wilson bill which became a law in 1890 convict labormade goods may enter Into actlvo competition with goods manufactured by freelabor and under this Federal law a State could not pass a law which would prevent the shipping into the State prisonmade goods of other States The law passed today abrogates the inter state commerce law ns at present ap plied to convictmade goods thereby affording to the different States and Territories the right to inhibit the shipping of convictmade goods within the confines of any State or Territory Mr Hunt asked for its passage not only in the interest of free labor b tin the interest of the man ufacturers He said it was an attempt to curb the criminal compe tition of the penitentiary with the free labor of the country It is cruel he said to ask the free labor of this country to maintain Its citizenship its dignity and its self respeot if it has to wait until the product of the State prison is sold
