Made by a Well Known Catholic Gentleman NAMES SUGGESTED FOR TRUSTEES For some months past there has been much talk for a trade school in Louisville for boys the Board of Trade and Commercial Club being put forward as being behind the movement While all concede the sincerity and honesty of purpose of those who have interested them beethe consensus of opinion that there is no need far a trade school the great mass of people believing that our Manual Training High School fully covers the field in that direc tion But for those boys between twelve and eighteen years of age who are wayward or without homes something should be done and that at once Of this fact any one will be convinced who will pay a single visit to the Juvenile Court In seeking information upon this question it was the good fortune of the representative of the Kentucky Irish American to meet two gentle men who have had wide experience and have given years of study to tIle subject of the care of boys who have been led astray or may be without protection fact that the orphan asylums anc charitable institutions declined to receive boys over twelve years of age that It was between that age and eighteen that their character was formed and that the School of Re whoseIti+ iptttroLrotuttlraGrinstlt utionkitisknown that but few if any boys are improved spiritually or physically by confinement therein It is the home criminalellectlWhawhere the unfortunate youth will be surrounded with such influences as will make him grow up a practical Christian and lawabiding citizen Such a home could be easily pro vided There are in ninny cities in stitutions such as he wants established here and in all the results gratifyingWhenthere a chaplain who looks after his spiritual welfare a chapel in which he may pray a library and reading gymIimprisonment whatever As soon as possible a position is secured for the boy who is thus taught to be industrious and selfsustaining in ad dition to fitting himself for the battle of life It is such a place he would have for the poor and wayward boy and as an evidence of his earnestness this good man offers 100 as a starter tmvard securing a home in accordance with the fore going He suggests that the Rev George Schuhmnnn D D of the Cathedral Judge Charles A Wilson and President Pierre Vlgllni of the GeYman Bank be constituted a Board of Trustees and that dean tions for the proposed home be placed with them The gentleman feels that when the matter is placed before the people of Louisville in proper light there will be prompt action and generous additions to his liberal donation The Protestants of Louisville have no place for their girle and are send ing them to the Sisters of the Good Shepuerdyrho are now overcrowded and hardly able to care for more subsCTip1Ions an institution of their own but this will still leave the boys uncared for As regards the trade school there will be vigorous opposition Seldom if ever does a boy graduate there from a practical mechanic Thus spoke another gentleman who has worked with many boys from these properlylearnserve his time in the factory orI workshop Who ever heard he says of a man coming from such an in Istltutlon who was competent to either fire or run a locomotive Neither can they be depended upon to fill machinists positions in our railroad shops Did one ever become a firstclass carpenter bricklayer marble cutter architect molder or printer The time they spend work inir in these toy shops is utterlylost and when they are sent out to face the world they they have to begin all over again The home as suggested is

numerous speakers and said in part While traveling for my firm 1 have as a member of organized labor been brought in contact with the material that goes to make up the solid substance of this great State I firmly believe in the up lifting of the American workman realizing as I do that by his work he makes it possible for industries to grow for factories to manufacture their product and by the steady honest toil of the American workmen we commercial travelers find lucrative situations to market the results of their labors To Illustrate more fully the alms and objects of my plan I have select organizedlaborworthy members to assist me in con ducting the duties of Secretary of State It may be that I nave made a mistake there is no man living who has not It may be that I am too optismitic in my ideas as to the worth and ability of my yellow work men but the opportunity given me by my election was too good to let go by without at least trying the experiment and of convincing the people of this State and perhaps of the country at large that the work man of today is as far superior to the one of forty years ago as the electric planlafice that the wishes of the people shall be carried out and the office be made a place of business instead of the home of graft RECENT DEATHS Not long ago death entered the dome of John McHalo and claimed his beloved wife yet not satisfied

Members of Britlana Up per House The Masses Give These Prelates No Sympathy in Cry of Poverty Opposition to Popular Measures Likely to Affect Ecclesiastical Measures BIG INCOMES MAT BE SLASHED Much has been said recently of the British House of Lords and the growing hostility to that body and especially those Bishops of the Church of England who are members of the gilded chamber A London correspondent writes the Chicago Tribune that history is repeating itself that as in the past so now the lords spiritual are found aiding with the lords temporal against the people that democracy has been irreverently taking stock of them overhauling their legislative and episcopal records figuring on what they cost and questioning if they are worth it There are two Arch- bIshops and thirtythree Bishops of the Established Church whose in comes aggregate 381500 which works out at an average of over 25000 each per annum How different this extravagance from that of the Catholic Bishops who are al ways found with and for the people There Is little popular sympathy felt with the cry of poverty raised by the palace housed Bishops The masses of the people feel that they t owe them nothing As legislators they have done their best to oppose social and political reforms In the I long struggle of Roman Catholics I Jews and Nonconformists for civil tI humanlItarianI i inal laws and reducing the death i penalty in the efforts to extend the bundlngllupI i aIIwaI the people The Lords spiritual have always been among the last to yield to the demands of outraged public opinion A little book has just been published containing a record of the votes and speeches of the Bishops in the House of Lords during the nineteenth century Its amazing array of facts set forth in plain unvarnished style consti tutes one of the most scathing in dictments of the prelates of the I English church ever pennedun thelhUtNothing reveals them in a more amazing light than the evidence of of1fortsdeath penalty At the beginning of the nineteenth century death was the legal punishment In England for a multitude of petty crimes To steal a few shillings worth of goods from a shop to pick n pocket to cut down a cherry tree to kill a sheepfor these offenses no less than murder high treason forgery and robbery with violence death was the penalty One would have imagined that men who by their consecration vows were I solemnly pledged to be merciful for Christs sake would have taken the lead in all efforts to abolish such legalizedatrocities Quite other wise Not a vote was given by the Bishops during the first sixty years of the nineteenth century for bills for the removal from the statute books of bloodthirsty paws not n word was uttered from the episcopal bench in the name of Christian charity to save the wretched pickpocket and the miserable shoplifter from the ruthless execution Seven Bishops voted against the bill passed by the Commons for abolishing the death penalty for stealing property fromshopsbury of a later day cast his vote for ponIishmentkilling cattle and for robbery com mitted by men disguised with faces blacked I Thq House of Lords rallied to the hangman and Jealously guarded his vested interests and the Bishops followed the Lords temporal without reluctance Young men and maidens old men and children were hurried to public execution for the most petty of crimes and the laws that sanctioned the killing of these petty offenders remained on the statute books for long years by the old of the Bishops against the wishes of the people of England Deaf to the cry of pity they voted for death I The bench of Bishops has neveti thrown its weight in the scale of peace when the balance trembled before war was declared it has never remonstrated against the tak ing up of arms when persuasive methods might have settled the dispute it has never protested against wars of invasion The cause of in ternational arbitration owes nothing to the Btehops Nor do peace societies count them among their allies None of the great present day movement of democracy for improvinir the condition of the messes are J n championed by the Bishops peas proIdedren to stop sweating to give old age pensions to make the acquisition of small holdings easy meet with no warm support from them They are againthegreat Lord Shaftesbury whose name Js associated with so many humani nothfngi

Legislature passed an act iI m nut norizin t the establishment of juvenile courts in this State The purpose of the law is to care for children who are not quite bad enough to be sentto the School of Reform The law has been put into effect in Jefferson county and Judge Charles A Wilson of the County Court is the presiding Judge Manycharitable persons are inter ested in the court and are doing all they can to aid in carrying out what they believe to be good law No one will question the good intentions of Judge Wilson or the good women JuvenileandCourt but it is our opinion that the law creating the court is defective In many ways if not wholly uncon stitutional therlaw permits the Juvenile Court au thorities to invade the home of man and take away his children if they are wayward or too poor to maintain themselves The law invades the home and gives the State authority matwhich ter how poor or negligent a man rna TheyState Khould not step in and assume control of his children without his consent unless there is very grave reason for doing so It is complained that this has been done in Louis ville of late and that the Juvenile Court has exceeded its authority in several Instances in taking children i away from their parents In the course of the proceedings of the Juvenile Court it has been developed that there is no place to send wayward girls except to the House of the Good Shepherd a Catholic institutions Some Pro testant parents object to sending their children to Catholic institu lions After a while when a home for wayward children is built Catholic children may be sent to it by n of the Juvenile Court gtns to us that the law creat ing tJjHfuvenlle Court is too broad and con ers too much power on the court The tendency of the times IB tn have the State take care of cjffldren whose parents neglect them Instead of this there should be a law to punish parents who neglect their children The Juvenile Court act needs revision in our opinion THE TAXING SYSTEM No system of taxation yet devised in any country has proved satisfac tory to those who have to pay tho burden It is not likely that any such ril stem will ever be devised All that wise statesmen can do is to provide a tax law that will be as nearlyequitable as possible After many years of experiment the con Btltutional conventions and legisla tures in many States devised what is called the ad valorem system of taxation This law obtains in Kentucky anti has been placed in the constitution of this Commonwealth An amendment to the constitution recently adopted permits Louisville to substitute a license tax system for merchants banks manufacturers and various other enterprises The case it howteforelI Court ofAp peals for final adjudication and it is evident that an effort is being made to influence the court in favor of the license system The ad valorem system of taxation provides that merchants banks trust companies and manufacturers pay taxes on the property they own ns qf September 1 in each year just like real estate Owners or the own ers of personal property This law seems to be fair and just but the merchants and manufacturers and the banks want to return to the licensei system which obtained in Louisville for many years They JLlaiin that manufacturing1 and in mifitry would be enhanced by this Change Merchants claim that they can not compete with the merchants of other States under the ad valorem t iystean but we think this is n mis take TIle ad valorem system obtains in Indiana Take Indianapolis for Instance It has many large manu factories and a very large number ot wholesale houses They ore all flourishing under the ud valorem system of taxation and come into competition with Louisville They pay as muei if not more taxes than ftimilar industries in Louisville pay jyet they ate itot complaining i Ijoulsyllie in former years Upved lh merchants end manufacturers nltthe Banks to pay a license tax i nil they paW Jfc t wkat they pleased nri that waa Very little AU the trust 1paea iaeraiaBta I L land manufacturers are Declaring dividends of from 0 to 12pcr cent annually There seems to be no good reason why their taxes should be reduced and the burden placed bn the large and small real estate owner Xo one ever hears of any movement to reduce the taxes of the cottage owner Recently City As lessor Summers Increased the vnluar lions of the stocks of the banks nnd trust companies for municipal taxing purposes from a percentage of CO to SO The banks canoe before the City Hoard of Equalization and had the assessment set aside anti they now pay on a percentage of GO whereas the real estate owner pay on a pencentage of 80 Some of the bank stocks are quoted in the mar kets at 300 and all are worth over 100 In the market What more do the banks and trust companiesi want Do they want to escape tax ation entirely and put nil the bur dens on real estate It looks very much like it The manufacturing Industries of LouisvilleI are also making money and are declaring1 large dividends Under these circumstances they ought to pay like outer people After years of litigation the taxing laws of Kentucky have been construed by the courts and settled It is now easy for the tax collector to make nIl pay their just burdens A change in the law would cause confusion I endless to the city and State Better let the ad valorem system stay as it is now It Is to be hoped I the Court of Appeals will look at the matter In the right light and decide that everybody shall be taxed under the ad valorem system ler1rimaeI feels great concern over the probability of war between this country and Japan and predicts I that the yellow rjien will precipitate a conflict within the next law years Capt Hobson says I think that the wantto ri enrulellt1 in the face of public opinion They willcreate a pretext if necessary They can easily capture the Philip pines and Hawaiian islands and cx elude us from the orient Our nay is totally inadequate to cope with the situation and Japan knows it The Japanese realize that there willI eventually be a war for supremancy between the white and the yellow races and for that reason desires to intrench herself as the sole power in the orient She realizes that ii- a if war with the United States met withsuccess it must be precipitated within the next five years befor- we have time to properly strengthen our navy Japan will find pretext to bring about War The California trouble is only one step in that di rection And Americans should not forget that England has entered into an alliance with Japan and in case of trouble her protestations o friendship would be as chaff before the wind There is no doubt but that England is at the work to the end that war may ensue without showing her mailed fiat The attitude taken by the Presi deritR detractors and maligners is that the President took the action he did because the soldiers In the Brownsville affair were negroes Has he not already shown his strict im partiality in the race question braying the censure of the South by his attitude toward the negro and now wflien his sense of justice impels Mm to take action to preserve the integrity of the United States army anti its honor must the North where it is claimed sectionalism is a thing of the past must the North allow its views to be misrepresented by the howl of race persecution from

involved in the election to be held in Germany isp whether or not the dissolved Reich stag was justified in refusing to vote additional money to be used for military purposes in German South western
