IIKINTI1KYR1SIM1EIL181907 PRICE FIVE CENTS INTENSE FEELING Predominates at National Con ventlon of the Catholic Knights Open Rupture Between Scere 4 tary Matre and Treasurer Carroll Reports Show That Membership Has Boon Very Large ly Increased ORDER APPROVED BY HIERARCHY The formal opening of the sixteenth biennial convention of the Catholic Knights of America at Cin cinnati took place Tuesday morning at the Hotel Havlln The order is one of the oldest and largest of its kind and counts among its members many prominent Catholic laymen in all parts of the country and the delegates seated represented every State in the Union Immediately after the u mass at St Peters Cathedral the delegates assembled at the convention hall and were called to order by Chairman J J Dermody of the Hamilton County Central Committee who In an eloquent address presented Archbishop Moeller Mayor Dempsey State President Altenburger and Secretary Harry Gott who welcomed the Catholic Knights to Cincinnati and Ohio Supreme President Gaudln made a feeling response for the or der and then announced the conven tion open for business The session which followed was devoted chiefly to the appointment of committees and the reading of letters of indorse ment from Archbishops Bishops and prominent members throughout the country Following the appointment of the Credentials Committee Rev Fathers Hewlett Relslng and Van der Ven were named as a special committee to prepare and have Arch bishop Moeller forward to Pope Plus X a telegram pledging loyalty to the Holy Father At the afternoon session the Credentials Committee reported that there were no contests and all delegates were seated President Gaudin announced the various committees that would serve during the convention Kentucky being placed on many Important ones Su preme Delegate Thomas Gleeson was assigned to those on resolutions and appeals and grievances and Michael Reichert on official reports and ex tension of order- Wednesday there was a requiem mass for the souls of departed mem bers the rest of the day being de voted to business None of the com mittees were ready to report and therefore the hard work of the con vention could not begin before Thurs day There was unfortunately an open rupture between Secretary Matre and Treasurer Carroll and on all sides there was manifested a v quiet but intense feeling on the part of the friends of each The matter of difference between them were such as would take up much of the time of the Grievance Committee and probably prolong the convention ns no decision had been reached when this report closed Matre was formerly of Cincinnati and was chosen as Secretary several years ago There has been a good deal of friction between the two ever since then which reached its head when Treasurer Carroll made public charges against Matre at the same time asking that the order cut down its expense and join the two offices c In one The charges preferred by Treasurer Carroll almost led to an encounter in the committee room and considerable feeling has been en genderedWhile questions of change In the policy of the order will come upat the meetings several matters of im portance will be thoroughly diet cussed Among them will be the effort again on behalf of the Ohio dele gates to secure the headquarters of the order which Is now established at St Louis for Cincinnati The ef fort has been made before but failed it is thought by those not from Cincinnati f that the llocal delegates will not be any more successful this timePresident Gaudin who has given the order a wise and successful ad jnlnlstratlon made several important recommendations which will doubtless be adopted He would reduce the age limit for the term rate to fiftyfive years and also the rate for admission to the order to sixteen years Another recommendation pro vides that in case of the increase of Insurance by fe member to make a special rate so that he or she will r pay the first insurance at entry increasbd Insurance atage and the attained age He also favored a con stttutioual provision that a certain amount shall be offered annually to ward Peters pence Secretary Matres report shows s that the order numbers 554 branches located in fortythree States and Territories with a total membership of 19310 The total resources on April 20 100T were 84759066 disclosing a gain of 12780341 since the last

report and incldentall enters a strong protest against the Secretaryslee of It is this that has caused the feeling 1be- tween the two offices Another question that caused much speculation and feeling in certain quarters was to fio change the law as to make some officers eligible to election for more than two terms From the foregoing it will be seen that this convention is one of great import but it is our opinion that the delegates will follow the lead of such men as Reichert Gleeson Gaudin Croghan and other conservatives and legislate only for the good of the orderSHOCKED AND PAINED Were James Rodgers Friend Over His Unexpected Death People in all sections of the city and In all walks of life heard with pain and regret of the unexpected and awful death of James Rodgers on Thursday evening of last week It was not until Friday that the distressing particulars became known He was employed by the Kentucky Wall Plaster Company at its plant In Jeffersonvllle and it is supposed that in making his rounds Rodgers suffered either an attack of heart failure or vertigo as his body was found in a hopper where he had fallen with head down When discovered the ibody was still warm but life was extinct James Rodgers was born In Count Down Ireland sixtytwo years ago but came to this country when a young man and for over forty years ihad lived in Louisville where he served several terms in the General Council He was a pioneer Hibernian and one of the founders of the Catholic Knights of America and both were largely represented at the fu renal Division 1 adjourned out of respect to his memory and with the Knights visited the house and offered prayers for the repose of his soul James Rodgers although born in Ireland was a real American at heart In spirit and in feeling but still at the same time retaining filial love for the country of his nativity its death will not only be mourned by all true IrishAmericans who knew him best but also by many friends in Ireland He was a friend of all that needed a friend and an enemy of none a man that was all heart and soul and with but few of the weaknesses that flesh is heir to When James Rodgers died Louis ville lost a nobleman a man whose fullness of the heart knew no bounds and whose right hnnd knew not what his left hand did to benefit his fellow man It Is but seldom that through lifes journey one meeTs with such a man and it is our wish that his good squl Is now at rest Those who knew him realize this and for us tp say more wpuldibe like gilding the lily or adding perfume to the violet His funeral took place Sunday morning from St Pauls church and In the most feeling sermon ever heard there Rev Father York paid high tribute to the life and worth of the deceased bringing tears to the eyes of alt present Besides the be eared wife a grown son and daugh ter susvive and for them there is felt the most sincere sympath- yNINETYONE MEN nltlated In Knights of Colum bus Here Last Sun day The initiation of local

initiation in the local membership now makes this coon cil one of the strongest in the country THANKED MEMBERS One noticeable feature of the good done by the recenj mission at the Dominican church was the large at tendance of men approaching holy communion last Sunday with the Holy Name Society at the 730 clock mass After mass Rev Father E V Flood addressed the society complimenting them on their showing and very feelingly thanking the members for the Handsome pres at which they had given him last week at the celebration pf his silver jublke stating he would always re member them in his

representatives to the national convention vhich will meet In Indianapolis on July 14 for three days session was brought before the meeting and after considerable discussion was laid over as a special order of business for the June meeting at which it is hoped and expected all of the delegates from every society will be present In this connection President Rogers announced In answer to a question that the delegates were the only ones who had a voice but that the delegates had the liberty and In fact the officers would be pleased If they would bring as many of their friends with them to the meetings as desired to comoIn other words that the meetings were open to all Catholic trlendsAt anticipatdle Paul Society will be brought up for a final discussion and the Executive Committee together

and over 1000 branches Last year 5000 new members arid fiftyseven branchsc were added AFTER SECOND PLACE The fact that exGov William L Douglas of Massachusetts has an nounced his wlll ignesa to accept a Democratic nomination for Governor iiext fall undoubtedly indicates that he believes hre can be elected and his j i faith seems to be cheering the old Bay State Democrats amazingly It will be remembered that In 1904 while Col Roosevelt carried Massachusetts be nearly 100000 majority Douglas carried it by abot 30000 In 1005 and 100G he declined to be a can didate for the Gubcrnational nom ination Gov Curtis Guild Jr who is now serving his second term and who is said to covet the Republican Vice Presidential nomination will unquestionably be nominated for a third Gubernatorial term as that is the habit in Massachusetts So that if Douglas and Guild make the race the prize will be not only the Governorship but a Vice Presidential nomination also for if Douglas wins in the fall the chances are that he can have the Democratic Vice Presi dential nomination by saying that he will accept it and if Guild loses the Governorship he will be out of the running for the Vic Presidency

with this body but at theme time it was the duty of the Central Committee to visit occa ilonally all branches within its jurisdiction Secretary Martin favored hanging the Supreme officers that the honors may be more widely dis tributed among the States believing that such policy would open new fields and increase Interest In the order Charles Hill Harry Veeneman and Police Commissioner Murphy

Methodist Bishop dandier of At lanta last Sunday in a sermon at HopMnsvllle before the Womens Home Missionary Society of the Louisville Conference gave utterance ito the following startling warning- Ier do not expect a flood but rather r1the millennium and the establish ment of Christs Kingdom but I warn you Americans that if you do not realize your responsibility alive up to your obligations as Christians mildew will form on your stores a curse will fall on your homes and a judgment will be sent upon your lives under present m- ettode The manner In which money is t gotten kept and expended is noth ing short of atheistic Bishop Candler realizes the work- that o should be lone at home where there is a great missionary field The various sects have long been neglecting their own in this

up the New York police to the im portance of enforcing the ordinance against the carrying of concealed c weapons He has had over a hundrec men arrested and fined for indulge ing in the practice in which they had not been hindered previously 1bj the police Similar energetic action 5r is needed in Louisville where the bad practice is as prevalent as in Nev YorkThe custom of the police in botl New York and this city has been to regard the carrying of concealed x weapons as not so much an offense in itself as an aggravation of other offenses which might be committed An experienced policeman can usually detect the carrying of a concealed weapon Yet even in the ca1le of well known crooks it is rare that anyone is brought Into court on that charge atone In case of doubt i it is better to let the suspected poison pass as indiscriminate searching would not be tolerated by the people But where there is no doubt us to the meaning of a suspicious bulge or gleam the police should act And in every case where a weapon is found concealed on the person of a persoi arrested on another charge the maxi mum fine should be imposed There should be no carrying of concealed zlweapons except toy those who hay taken put licenses And when con- G Acted they should be made to serve out the full jail sentence as well as finepi I THAT IRISH BILL Next Tuesday the convention caller io meet in Dublin

the question now being naked by the business men and people of Louisville since the meeting held last week when the board voted down every proposition that would give this city the same rates anti facilities as are accorded her com petitors When the difference between the Board of Trade and the Commercial Club is fully realized it is safe to predict that Louisville will hove small use for the former which seams dominated by a spirit pronounced both cowardly and selfish The Board of Trade to prosper should be for Louisville first last and all the title The Texas Legislature lost week passed a law taxing nil dealers in firearms who sell pistols SO per cent of their gross receipts It is intended to stop the carrying of pistols iin tho Lone Star State This would be a good law for Kentucky with the added amendment providing for the sentencing of all convicted of past l toting to the penitentiary for a year and taking away the right tto grant pardon to any one sentenced for the crime Such a law would save Kentucky many thousands of dollars each year and add to her repute tion for law and order One beneficial feature of tho Cath olio Churchs position on the divorce question that can really be appreci ated by our separated brethren Is that no Catholic clergyman could 1be guilty of uniting in marriage Million afro Corey a divorced man and Ma bel Oilman tho actress which took

thropist and humanitarian wants all Christian nations to agree to erect peace statues like that of Christ situated on the summit of the Andes Speaking of tho resolution adopted at Tremont Temple and its author the Boston Journal said When George T Angell author of the resolution sat down to write it his mind was lighted by a vision as startling at first thought as it is pregnant with humane religious and general uplift possibilities On every frontier statues of the Christ the Christ of the beatific countenance the mild compassionate eyes the gentle handthe Christ of peace and forgiveness and patience Bud righteousness toward nil menthe was the vision which inspired the resolution Statues of the Saviour divine the man of many griefs who came to earth to instill in every heart the dews of good will and gratitude not to sow seeds of hatred and envy among the races of the worldthose are the reminders which if the sug gestion first advanced at Tremont Temple realizes to the full its original intent will stand on all the boundary lines of the world nations as a perpetual protest against the shreik of the mortar the clash of the saber the grapple of menbeasts in red fury- This first peace statue and corn pact was brought about by Catholic influence and setJ an example fore world RYAN AND THE EXPO Though tho JamestOwn Exposition Is being held to commemorate the arrival of

child as unhappy as the bad mother The mother who takes no interest in the happiness or in the goingtoneither love nqr consideration You find it troublesome you say to ar range a Incheon for the boy at school and you let the cook fix anything and wrap it up in a upII of newspaper The agony by your sensitive boy can not be counted nor understood He sees other boys take their daintily ar tinybasketsI or fresh white paper or clean napkins 1 He sees the sandwich the piece of cake the apple or tho orange nnd possibly in one corner he find a surprise in the shape of some candies carefully put in an en velope And your poor boy may walk around the playground that he may not see boys that have mothers to think of them He is ashamed of his luncheon and so ho keeps it in his pocket and pulls out a piece of dry bread or a bit of biscuit or a piece of thick meat swallowing each as quickly as possible so that no other boy can guess how miserable he is You count it a little thing I count it a great thing To hurt the pride of a child means to make him lose confidence in himself as cer tainly as he loses love for you It is better to die without knowing one particle of Greek with an utter and intense ignorance of the history of Egypt and without belonging to one club Instead of belonging to six than to hurt the heart of your son KEEPS REFRIGERATORS SWEET Unslaked fresh lime in
