High License Ordinance Is Lost In Lower Board Whisky Trust Was Anxious to Drive Out Good I Element 4 Marshall Bullltt Felled to Control General Council av This Time SQUANDERING PEPOLES MONEY The lower board of the General Council at its meeting Saturday night settled for at least six months the question of a higher license for saloons in Louisville The scenes of wild disorder that marks the meeting on Friday night were duplicated on the night following It was a light of Marshall Bullitt who draws one salary as Cnairman of the Board of Public Safety and another as attorney lor the whisky trust It would seem that almost any manlike Tom Moore could be happy with either were the other dear charmer away But Mr Bullitt is different He wants it all Homanta to dominate the Mayor distribute the patronage control the legislative branch of the city government control the license I board run the Taft campaign and act as attorney for the whisky trust But there is such a thing as having too many irons in the fire I Mr Bullitts scheme to dominate the General Council received a severe setback Saturday night when the ordinance to increase the saloon license from 150 to 500 per annum was defeated by a vote of fourteen to ten It might have been killed absolutely but the majority decided to allow it to die a slow lingering death on the table Several I members were cajoled with promises of jobs for relatives and friends When this failed Mr Bullitt threat ened He undertook to speak for Judge J Wheeler McGee as well as himself and announced that no more saloon licenses would be granted until I the high Kcense ordinance was passed The threat did not deter any of the friends of the lower license and they voted in solid phalanx for what they deemed to be the best interests of the city Time move of Mr Bullitt and the people behind him was not a reform I movement at all It was aimed at keepersIttout it meant protection for the dive keepers men who were growing rich off their vile traffic The ordinance met its just deserts in the Council But Mr Bullitt refuses to be downed He now bobs up as a champion of the Audit Company that went over the books of the Louisville Water Company and failed to findC anything wrong When the auditing Companysbooksago a bill for 21000 was presented to City Comptroller Wilhite When it was learned that the bill would have to pass muster before the General Council it was hurriedly withdrawn Now comes Marshall t Bullitt with the announcement thatL the bill may run up to 35000 How long will the people stand for the nerve of this modern Catiline Too much credit can not be glveui the Councilmen who stood shoulder I to shoulder against Mr Bullitt and his whisky trust clients A steady hand and clear heads will soon rid I the city government of this un fortunate pest 4 Mayor Grinstead has not beenII satisfied with the repeated defeats of the high license measure and called a meeting of the General Council for Thursday At the hour of going to press the question has not been definitely settled but the l probability is that the high license ordinance will become a law If the disreputable saloons and dives are cut out the high license will not work any very great hardship The dives should not be tolerated at all t and it is to be hoped that the License Board will refuse licenses to every t man who is unable to show a first class record for probity What the people want but what was not con sidered until within the past few days was saloons o a better class With the bad ones cut out there will be little opposition to an increased license This hits been the jsltlon TuesdayhasQistration a TRUSTaAttorney General Bonaparte h Plays Critics of I C the PresldsntII Last Saturday night Attorney Gen oral Bonaparte delivered an address before the Illinois Athletic Club at Chicago and in the course of his I remarks flayed those who are criticising President Rooseveltt enforcing the law governing forI Among other things Mr Bonaparte who stands for the enforcement of law and order said s I have spoken only ot obstacles to the execution of the laws I have nothing to say at any time against their wellconsidered amendment If the

and rhyme is the Adeste Fidells a hymn sung in Catholic church from Christmas until Candlcmas day February 2 How old it is no one seems to know nor is its individual author known In beautiful language it calls the faith ful of every clime to adore the new Saviour It was originally written in Latin and is sung in Latin in all our churches but it has been translated Into every language now extant 1i is above all others the Christmas hjrinn tA learned writer says of it The atmosphere ofUle ancient monas teries breathes through its melodious strophes It is in many respects unique in Christian hymnology More than any other church song it blends prophecy history prayer exultation and praise If it were printed side by side with the Nicene Creed it would be found an astonishing proseEvery1 a

Present Secretary Birrell Denounced Fo Failure to Reestablish Crimes Act THOSE CATTLE DRIVING CASE I That there are still proFnglisl daily papers in these United States Is evidenced by the publication of a screed in the Chicago Tribune last Sunday The Tribune would have its readers believe that Ireland is a lane of lawlessness and disorder Undo the head Crime Rages in Ireland backed by a London date we read Ireland half become a worse thorr in the side of the Liberal Govern ment than it was in that of their Unionist rivals It was reported yesterday that Under Secretary Birrel had become alarmed at the growth lawlessness which the Government under present methoas is powerles to check and that the Cabinet hat decided to invoke the crimes act ir five of the worse counties where tin law now is paralyzed The rumor proved false for so dear is politica consistency to the heart of the Liberal politicians that they decided to allow agrarian crime to run riot a little longer rather than use tin coerclvo weapon which theyve always condemned when in the hand of the Unionist government Thf Irish Secretary must have spoken with his tongue in his cheek to TISI an Irishism when he complained to a deputation of landowners yesterday that they dIdnt cooperati- with the pollee in furnishing evidence against the cattle raiders lie got a prompt answer that the grazers and herdsmen darent come forward because they firmly believed they would bo murdered if they testified against the raiders This is common knowledge in the affected district yet Mr Birr ell affected to receive it with great surprise There Iia small doubt that outrages will con tinue on an increasing scale through out Ireland and it will be an inter esting spectacle to see how long the Liberal Government will permit anarchy to continue without resourcn to effective measures of repression Not only does the Chicago Tribune publish this malicious article but it backs it up with an editorial castigation of Secretary BIrrell because he has not applied the crimes act Thin English editor of the Tribune concludes thus The chief difference in the crimes act Is that it permits a selected jury and a possible change of venue with trial before a stipendary Judge Instead of a local Magistrate The editor would be the first to kick if Jio were forced to stand trial In America and the jury was packed As a matter of fact Ireland is freer from crime now than it has been In several decades True enough there is in some parts of Ireland a species of warfare in progress known as Cattle driving Absentee landlords have brought this about by raising rents or permitting their managers to raise them If the tenants refuse to pay or are unable to pay they are evicted and the landlord stocks Ills estate with cattle The farmers in some instances have banded together and have driven off the cattle had boycotted those who attempted to Interfere There has been no violence attempted or contemplated and

ANCIENT TOWN Noted Monastery at Clon mel is Seven Centu ries Old Ireland is full of towns and cities of historic interest and to many Irish Clonmel molds first place It is situated in the most beautiful part of the County Tipperary and is sur rounded by lulls rising hundreds of feet and fertile from base to apex The word Clonmel means Meadow of Honey Between the town and the hills runs the beautiful river Sulr One part of the city is called Irishtown though of course every inhabitant of Clonmel is Irish to the core Among its interesting shrines is the monastery or friary of St Francis of Assisi On one of its tow ers you read that it was founded in 1229 A D Think of it for seven centuries generations of Irish have succeeded each other In worshiping at this same shrine The old friary bell still hangs in the tower and its music is hs sweet now as it was prior to the time of Cromwell and Ireton Of the many holy wells in Ireland the one just outside of Clonmell is considered the most beautiful It is called St Patricks Well Its limpid waters spring up at the foot of a gigantic but aged tree Near by is an ancient chapel which is now bo ing restored and will soon be ready for the celebration of the holy sac rifice of the mass Clonmel has been nicknamed The town with the cloud over it More than 100 years ago one of Irelands patriot priests Ilev Father Sheehy was beheaded there as a traitor For many years after a black cloud of immense proportions hung continually over the little city as if to give the people a warning that the wrath of God hung over it There are runny lovely drives around Clonmel and the trip to Waterford twenty six miles away is througn n picturesque fertile and well wooded country BELOVED NUN DEAD It was with great regret that Lou- Isville

SUFFERING Young City Government Seed to Be In Very Great Danger I Indications Arc That the Ex cciitlve Officers Want to Control f f Several Instances Now at Haiu of Attempted Plans on Council CASE OF TO MUCH BULL1TT I The executive and legislative off cers of the city government have be gun to display the cloven hoof and plneethemgusted Each succeeding day brings new features to light yet the government is not six weeks old The meet- Ing of the General Council last Tuesday night opened with a prayer and Rev M P Hunt was all for peace The prayer was scarcely over before the members of the lower board began to hammer each other and to engage in anything but gentleman language Of course William Marshall Bnllitt the PopBah of local Republican affairs was to the fore He made no speech but contented himself with dictating to President Isadore Forst how to rule and when ta make his rulings When Messrs Richardson Schranz and others point ed an accusing finger at Bullltt he remained discreetly silent and the PooBaha calculations were upset by a voto of sixteen to seven against President Forst The row came up over the ordinance Increasing the license of retail liquor dealers from 150 to 500 President Forst referred the ordinance to the Revision Committee where it should have gone according to all precedents Then ho changed his mind and endeavored to shift Iit to the Finance Committee It was hen that Messrs Richardson Schranz and others began to point the finger of scorn at President Forst and to Insist that he was listening to the whispers of Marshall Bullltt who sat on the steps of the dais at his feet Eventually the ordinance reposed with the Revision Committee Marshall Bullltt is Chairman of the Board of Public Safety and is chief advisor to his honor Mayor Grinstead Recently he went to Washington and It is alleged advised the President of the United States how to deal out Federal pie Incidentally he stopped at Columbus Ohio and told Secretary Tafts managers how to handy the campaign In Kentucky Chair man Bullltt now wants to manage the General Council He may be able to do this Iby parceling out the gifts of the Boards of Public Safety and WorksThus far Bullltt and Mayor Grin stead appear to be eminently sure of certain votes For instance Councilman S H Kendall has eight teams that are being employed by the pity government Otto Cohen another councilman formerly a pawn broker now in the employ of Chreste the real estate man is a friend of Mr Bullltt His brotherinlaw Lee Har ris has been given a place as clerk In tho street cleaning department- It is also understood that Councilman Kre9 who is engaged in the dry goods business at West and Walnut streets has had overtures made to him to be good and get places for his son and sonInlaw All he will have to do Is vote for Marshall Bul litts measures Every decent minded Republican Is disgusted with the attempt made by tIle ministerial branch of the government to debauch tho legislative department Messrs Richardson and Schranz are being generally commended for the stand that they have taken in the Interest of fair play If Mr Bullitts plans prevail tIll Democrats will carry the its handily two years hence and the Republican ticket will sustain a slump of something like 20000 votesIAfter the stormy Council meeting of Tuesday night Chairman Ebner Buyer called the Revision Committee together Wednesday afternoon and wanted his fellow Councllmen Messrs Browning Bohannon and Richardson to pass upon the 500 license ordinance at once They re fused immediate consiueration and desired action postponed until next Monday They were in a majority and their will prevailed In asking the postponement they stated that they wanted a full and fair hearing of both slof the question After tIle committee adjourned Councilman Richardson said All manner of means are being resdrted to by the Mayor and others of the administra ion to secure the passage of the ordlnaiee and it looks to me like a deliberate attempt on the part of someone to bribe and buy tho Council INDECENT POSTERS Those vested with authority to do so ought to call a halt on the character of billboard advertising that is permitted in Louisville Many of these pictures are a disgrace to common decency It is unnecessary to describe them One can not walk the streets nor ride in the cars with out encountering samples of these indecent pictures that ought to make I any respectable man or woman blush They are intended asa lure to the young to entice them to ques tionable places of amusements and the inevitable result is the wrecking of human souls No selfrespecting theatrical manager will permit posters of this kind to advertise the attractions of his theater It is time for the Mayor the General Council and others vested with the right to undertake a crusade against the nasty billboard ndvestiseinents CHANGE MEETING NIGHT For the next two weeks Mackin Council will hold its

Years by the Monks of St Bernard Their Lonely VIgils Marked by Deeds of Heroic Valor Duty to Humanity With Gratitude as the Only Iteward NIGHT AT THE FAMOUS HOSPICE At the highest point of the Great I St Bernard Pass one of the highways between Switzerland and Italy stands the world famous hospice of St Bernard writes Herbert Tourtel to the London Express Here for nearly 1000 years in magnificent and yet desolate solitude succeeding generations of Augustinian monks have kept lonely vigila vigil not infrequently broken by calls to deeds of heroic valor Here for nearly beacon11Iglltand night the monks in their chapel have said and trung the sacred offices of their church During this vust chain of years the monks have never turned away a suppliant who came to them asking shelter or hospitality Tlic poorest peasant and the richest traveler alike ask nod receive a nights shelter and night and morn- Ing meals before tIle monks speed them on their way In the early I spring in the autumn and in ullII winter when blinding mists hide landmarks from view and when the pass is covered with vast drifts of show the monks with their famous dogs act as guides to those way I farers who arc compelled by cir I cumstances to make the dangerous journey over the Great St Bernard For this duty imposed on them by their vows they receive as they indeed desire no other reward than gratitude Many a monk hue lost his life in the performance of this duty inpastFormerly the dogs were sent out regularly to search for lost way farers Now happily science has come to the aid of the monks and telephones on the Italian and the Swiss side of the pass link the hos pies with the outside world No traveler goes beyond a certain point on each side without the fact using nt once telephoned to the monks reachingIffrom Mariigny Aosta in Italya distance of fifty miles It is from Aosta that the monks draw their supplies Every duy during the brief summer weeks their motor wagon goes down to Aosta and returns fully laden with supplies for the day end stores for the autumn winter and spring The motor wagon can not be used on the Swiss side because one order of the Canton of Volals In which the pass Is situated forbids the use of any motor rehicle unless a horse is attached to it This precaution is not al together stupid for the greater por tion of the pass skirts steep and rug ged precipices It was early in the present month that I crossed the pass and stayed for a night at the hos pice The walk from Martigny is about twervtyieight miles but the f I o distance seems nothing as every mile onward brings one into more bracing and Invigorating air The road is a good one and is higher on the mountains than but more or less parallel with the rocky way over which Napoleon led his legions in 1800 Napoleon passed one night at the hospice Half an hour from the hospice one leaves the road and fol lows the original rocky path if one is on foot As we started this last stage of the dumb night began to fall and a dense mist blotted out everything that was more than a yard ahead It was therefore not until wo stood actually in the court yard of the hospice that we knew the journey for that day was at an end Around were several conveyances and the drivers were busy removing sacks of fodder for their animals The monks give stabling to the horses and mules but owing proIvideThe hospice is a vast simple build ing with accommodation for almost 300 travelers We went up a flight of stone steps passes through long corridors and pulled the rope at tacked to a loud clanging bell The sound went echoing through the vaulted corridor and almost immediately the almoner appeared We asked him for the favor of shelter for the night and he assigned us rooms At the same time he told us that as we were too late for the first dinner another would be served for us in half an hour Our rooms were simply furnished but spotlessly clean The washing utensils were of metal a few pictures of religious subjects hung on the walls The beds and one table completed the furniture On each bed were three heavy blankets and the ordinary bed linen We did not find these coverings superfluous at night when the wind came blow ing up the bleak pass and drove the freezing mist mingled with flakes of snow through the windows We waited1 for dinner in the salon where there is tie piano presented to monks by King Edward We a cosmopolitan company theI DritishIFrenCh lent A consomme 6f vermicelli was served first followed bysome braisedlbeef with the most delicious potatoes ithat I have ever tasted Then came some stewed veal and kidneys with macaroni A generous prunesIand as much light red wine as each diner wanted Considering the cir cumstances this was an extremely good dinner especially as it was admirably cooked and admirably served The peasants who enjoy the hospitality of the hospice were given some soup beef vegetables cheese and wine At 0 oclock next morning we rose for mass and at 7 the usual break fast of coffee milk brood and honey was offered us by the monks The peasants had the choice of this or a great bowl of soup Before leaving we were taken to see the famous dogs and their kennels the library and the museum of the hospice Then at 9 oclock having thanked the monks for their hospitality we started to walk into Italy Although the monks never ask one guest for even a centime no one should ever leave tho hospice without handing tho almoner or placing in his box in the church from eighC to ton francs It is estimated that on an average only one person in twenty leaves enough to have paid for a moderate hotel charge The remaining nineteen leave an average of nothing HICCOUGHS Stretch a clean towel over a glass of water and drink through the towel This never

Irish American dc sires to extend the fellcatlons of tho season to its friends and subscribers to wish nil ft very merry Christinas with peace health and prosperity On the whole It has not been a bad year True enough we have suf fered changes of administration In the State and city and these change were not altogether to our liking Wo have a firm believe that thcsi things will right themselves and that t an allwise God permitted then to happen for the bestIThe country leas been prosperous the harvest bounteous and there has beeii plenty of work until the 1nHt thirty lars Even now there is work for every man woman and child in the United States although the re cent stringency in the money marke caused a cessation of activity it1 manufacturing and railroad circles Now money is pouring into the coun try into the bank and confidence is being rapidly restored It is hopes that by January 1 the commcr lal and industrial lines will have resumed their normal condition A year from now the panic of 1907 wil be but a memory and we will laugl and joke about the idle leans we entertained a year before Let us give thanks for the blcsing we have enjoyed during the past year and on Christmas morning pour out our hearts devotion to the Giver of All Good for Ilis tenderness and mercy and pray for a countimmnce of His blessings Christmas with its attendant joys ought to mean to us something more than an exchango of gifts True enough we ought to try to make others happy but it is our chief duty to snake our peace with our Divine Redeemer at this holy season of the year ABOUT CHRISTMAS GIFTS This is the season of the year when people are casting about for suitable Christmas gifts for relatives and friends Loving mothers and thoughtful fathers desire to maker their children happy The affec tionate husband wants to give the wife of his bosom something that she will appreciate In turn the Careworn wife desires to give her husband and natural protector epme tIling that will be useful and comfortable Tho Ibeaux are hunting theirrrespective belles and the young ladies are equally anxious to please the swains that have been paying them attention Even employers are anxious to please their employes and merchants seek to please their customers both wholesale and retail This desire to make others happy would indicate that the world is Improving because the number of Christmas gifts is increasing each year and the worth of many of the gifts is also increasing Nor is the giftgiving confined to Christianr creeds alone We find many of our Hebrew brethren generous in their Christmas gifts to employes and Christian friends Our Divine Redeemer was the first Christmas gift He gave Himself to redeem mankind from the fate they had inherited as iho result of the fall of Adam and Eve None could make a greater sacrifice for those he oved than that made by Our Saviour It was His condescension that millions are unconsciously imitating in these times more than 1000 years after the Saviours birth Yet there axe count less thousands of people in the United Spates who are unable to say how and when the first Christmas l was made tf is no greater lesson in sir son that this act of selfabnega We ore not giving with the expectation of getting something in return We give to make others happy The small boy is as happy with his drum or the little mother girl with her doll is asmuch pleased in their way as the debutante with her diamond ring or the more mature matron with the sealskin coat The workingman who receives a turkey from his employer will certainly carry pleasant memories idr months to come and willbe more ihlt ever watchful of his employers interests Some of us may say we have nothing to give this year Give a kindly word to friends and the kiss f affection to your family Remember that you are only a weak mortal Mid that it is your duty to follow inj the footsteps of the Divine Master 5riendfi worth having will appreciate your best efforts no matter how feeble If they fail to appreciate yvJhat you do they are not entitled to claims on your friendship Above all cutyoar pace to the size of your flnirae Do not go beyond your in ia V r j A word 4o the receiver of gilt 0- C f J may not be amiss Do not grumbl at what you receive It may not be what you want but make the best of It Consider the spirit of the give and not the nature of the gift Remember that somebody has trie to make you happy Jt Is your duty to try to appear hnpp for that othe persons fake WHAT DEMOCRATIC MEANS From day to day we see and hear that the Democratic party is divide and that It will be impossible to elect aDemoorat1ff President for mnny years to come The party is divide only on Ilocal issues The majority of its members are still bound together by the fundamental principles that made it the party of Jeffersonl and Jackson Tho Democrats stand for the preservation of constitutional libcrt wherever our flag permanently floats opposition to trusts and other dangerous monopolies which prevent or oppose legitimate competition anll operate to the detriment of the people Democracy insists upon Stat rights under the guarantee olthe constitution public taxation tor public purposes only the abolitio of tariff upon articles controlled by trusts the election of United State Senators by the people of the varlou States the maintenance of the personal liberty of the citizen and an honest and economical administration of public affairs This platform ought to be broa enough for all Americans to stan upon but there are still men who believe in a high protective tariff biL subsidizing the merchant marine andl otherwise overtaxing a patient people If the Democratic leaders w111 cease to squabble over local issueI it will not be long before the part of the people will be returned to power VIGOROUS MAX NECESSARY The Louisville Times a few days- ago informed its readers that former United States Senator Lindsay has a lightning rod up in theI Senatorial race The Times corner pomlent added that Senator Lindsay had not made a move in the race andI that he would not until the time WaIl ripe It is not the purpose of the Kentucky Irish American

Capt Driscoll is Chief of the Fourteenth battalion of the Chicago fire dapartment His Income from his property and his salary net him 10000 a year and his money is In vested in real estate that is constant ly Increasing in value He expects that his holdings will double their value within the next ten years Twentyone years ago Driscoll was a day laborer and earned 9 a week In 1886 he was made a substitute fireman and four years later was made Lieutenant of his company In 1896 he was made Chief of hie battalion a position he still holds None of his money has been made by graft or corrupt politics On the contrary everything be has was made by hard work frugality and knowing how to take advantage ca bargain For his success Capt Driscoll takes no credit to himself but says his wife is responsible for the comfortable fortune he Is now master of He Is less than sixty years of age and has no intention of retiring from the ltys service for years to come With the first money that he saved after entering the fire department Capt Driscoll bought a lot near Douglas Park He paid 600 for it and next morning sold it for 1200 That was fifteen years ago After that the rest seemed easy and his real holdings grew piece by piece and con itantly enhanced in value because he always bought near commercial centers This wealthy fireman is still as rood nn Irishman and as good a Oath die as

Christianity and St John thi Apostle is its patron It takes the name Lateran from the place where on it was built- Centuries I after it was built or in 1308 it was almost entirely de stroyed by fire

Important event In American history For instance how few there are who remember that the seat of the National Government was transferred to Washing ton D C 107 years ago or that lityears ago the Maryland Legislature ceded to the National Government a tract of land ten stiles square for the purpose of giving the nation a site for its capital The bill thus passed was then signed by James E Howard fifth Governor of Maryland and Im mediately became a law However other States wanted the capital within their territory Penn- Sylvania wanted it on the Susquehanna Virginia considered the Po tomac an excellent site and New York desired It on the Hudson Several of theseStates offered the Gov ernment tracts of land but Mary lands otter was the most liberal President Washington on July 16 1790 signed the bill establishing the seat of government on the banks of the Potomac and accepting the ces slon of land made by Maryland Virginia also ceded a tract ten miles square but this was ceded back bl the United States in July 1846 Washington did not live to see the Government established in its new home Some historians tell you that the new capital was built in a wilderness but statistics show that in those days Prince George county Maryland had a population of 21000 This ad joined the District of Columbia on the east On the west was Montgomery county with a population ol 329000 Not such a wilderness after ill was it NEW COUNCIL The members of Louisville Council nights of Columbus are preparing to go in largo numbers to Bardstown Sunday December 29 to attend the Institution of a
