Illogical Position of tholMcnnco and Its Imitators AP AIKcvlval a Reminder of Locust and Periodical Pest Promotcis of ExPriests Later Complain About Empty Churches OPPOSED TO COMMON DECENCY The dally press during the past week has been carrying sensational descriptions of the trial of one Dr Jacob Price of the Methodist church who Is being tried by a conference of that church for im proper conduct with some of his women parishioners and the ques tion has been raised what a howl would go up If some Catholic paper conducted along the lines of the filthy A P A Menace would con demn the entire ministry and laity of the Methodist church for the actions of the above clergyman Along this line the following article by a writer In Branus Icono clast seems to be appropriate for the occasion About every fifteen years the venomous viper of bigotry raises Its flat repulsive head up out of the steaming swamp of Ignorance and hatred whore It has gorged Itself with falsehood calumny and slander and vomits Its malodorous slime out over the land It reminds one of the thirteenyear locusts the Kan other periodi sas grasshoppers and cal pests The buzzards catch the well known scent flock around the nauseating banquet and scream with Joy and delight over the palatable treat Now let me give you a fictitious case and ask you a question Sup pose that among the Catholic cler gymen there would bo found one so degenerate and shameless so for getful of duty and decency so de void of all sentiments of honor and selfrespect co stripped of all sense of right Justice virtue and liberty so lacking in principle and honesty so Ignorant and brutal as to edit a sheet of the color of some edited In t WSt MurJandGe rJhii 1o14Ivould- cali ltThe Danger or some other suggestive and scary name The sheet would steam reek drip and sizzle up with lurid lies slimy slan ders and caustic calumnies about Protestant ministers and Bishops about Protestant history and instl tutions the good name honor and reputation of Protestant women would be dragged Into the mire especially of such as are engaged In religious and charitable work who teach the children care for the foundling and the orphan nurse the sick and the wounded help the aged and the Infirm reclaim the fallen and tho wayward etc Now the question Whit would happen to this vile rag Let me tell you Not only would the Arch bishops Bishops and priests but every Catholic layman In the coun try raise his voice and close his purse against this unChristian un Scriptural unAmerican and un civilized buzzard sheet It would never boast of a million or a half million subscribers for the simple reason that It would not survive Its first issue on account of tho total lack of support The IrRev Editor would be commanded by his Bishop not only to discontinue his unChrls tlan doings but to publicly recall his lies calumnies and slanders publicly apologize for the heinous scandal and would be suspended till ho did Then what Having gone as far as he did he will most probably be too proud and selfcon ceited and too far gone to submit will leave the church and throw him self Into the willing and loving arms of some of his moral equals who will receive him with Joy Ignore his antecedents and announce with hallelujah expression apologies to Hashlmura Togo that another poor persecuted victim of a tyrannical Popish Bishop another Inoffensive Innocent lamb with fleece as white as snow has been happily snatched from tho Inquisitorial fangs of the Romish wolf Tho dear lamb will be petted In fact lionized he will be led upon the stage and will be urged not only with thirty pieces of silver to enlighten and regale a select 1 and credulous audience with the filthy droppings of his putrid Imagination If any Catholic whose most sacred sentiments have brutishly and slan derously been trampled Into the dirt dares to resent the outrage with even a single word of protest all the vipers of the swamp pop up their hateglittering heads and hiss In unison chorus about a Romish or Popish plot to assassinate this ex emplary lawabiding citizen who has found In their serpentine com pany the peace of mind and the freedom of conscience after which he strove In vain In the Jesuitridden church of Rome Such IB the stuff of which ex priests are made They are poor pitiful specimens of men who anj account of their Irregular scandalous or immoral lives had to be suspended by their Bishop and who were too far gone and too selfcon ceited to submit Some minister with a brainstormyi case of Romo phobia will lInvite him to occupy his pulpit oh a Sunday where Instead of preaching the gospel of Christ he will neatly and deftly expoee his r I KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN dirty wash for the admiration and edification of pastor and people After this there will be a hymn or prayer in which there will be much mention of sweet Jesus and of the love and charity of Christ What a travestyI 0 tempora o mores I Later on this saine pastor will dc Bomo loud lamenting and complain Ing about an empty church Yet would it not be a wonder If dt were otherwise Who can blame a good upright Protestant who is a sincere Christian if he stays away from a place where instead of the charity of Christ an unAmerican hatred Is preached Who can blame him If ho Insists that his wife and daughters keep away from a place where their sense of modesty decency and propriety is insulted by a shameless recital of personal moral depravity Why Is It that so many devout these filthy rags and their oozing slime of falsehoods with a relish that reminds one of a certain text in which the dog returning to the vomit has a conspicuous place Old hoary stale wormeaten chestnuts arc dished up with an extra yellow veneer and crimson streaks slan ders which have a hundred and one times been decisively and cotf cluslvely proved to bo absolutely un true What a sidelight upon tho intelligence honesty and Christianity not only of a multitude of misled misguided and misinformed dupes but even of ministers and editors of church papers who endorse these Chrlstless calumnies aid In their spread and call them exposures In stead of what they really arefetld falsehoods Why Is this Should we as an answer to this question quote the ancient Latin sayings Simile slralli gaudet and Asinus asinum frlcat which the Anglo Saxon has translated Into Birds of a feather flock together Among my friends I count a goodly number of Protestants good honest upright people whose friendship I highly prize I also believe with the Iconoclast that most American Protestants are honest and fairminded that they detest as much as Catholics the un charitable and feellngless the bar barous and brutal attacks of the Missouri and Georgia savages some of whom shamelessly prefix Rev to their names that they see and Feel how diametrically opposed to the letter and the spirit of tho Bible and of the constitution of the country this disgraceful exhibition of hatred and fanaticism is I have often wondered why some of these fairminded and wellwishing Christians and American citizens have not made more efforts to discredit the output of these journalistic scavengers which reflects such an odium upon their religion gives the Bible the lie blasts at one of the cornerstones of the constitution and Is a deadly menace to common de cencymen co ta religion State iCamtly notSInBtvlddAl But atter j thinking the matter over and plac ItIg myself in their position I can not blame them I Imagine they feel about like the man who Is expected to reach in under the dunghill and pull out the skunk that has lodged there If the liberty of tho press should ever be curtailed and a censorship of the press be estab lished In this country It will be owing to the publication of Just such brutish Indecent and unconstitutional sheetlets for no decent selfrespecting government can allow its moral atmosphere to be continually polluted by the malodorous exhalations of featherless journalistic buzzards NOTABLE CELEBRATION Tomorrow Easter Sunday will be the twentyfifth anniversary of the ordination to the priesthood of four Dominican priests three of whom are especially well known to the

Never Bo Repealed Asquith Again Takes Ills Scat In the Commons Without Opposition GOVERNMENT MAJORITY EIGHTY The home rule bill for Ireland again passed the House of Commons on Monday night which crowns with victory the long and determined fight of the Irish Nationalists I think In the present circumstances there is nothing for the House of Commons to do but proceed with the home rule for Ireland bill as it now stands This was the closing sen tence of a speech delivered Monday in the House of Commons by John E Redmond leader of the Irish Nationalists who made the final speech on behalf of the Nationalist party on the second reading of the home rule bill The vote of the House on the measure was arranged to be taken that night The days proceedings in the House were opened by Redmond who pleaded that tho present stage of the con troversy was so critical that all energies must be devoted to facing a settlement of the realities He con tinued The country as a whole is sick and tired of the Irish question and It must be settled here and now In the course of his speech Redmond said The House of Commons owes It as a duty to Ireland and to England to pass the home rule bill I am profoundly confident that when the bill has once been passed It never will bo repealed- In an address on Saturday at Ladybank Scotland Premier As julth definitely refused the Union ists demand that the question of home rule should be submitted to the electors He said Wo believe It to be a wise and Just measure We have disclaimed and will con tinue to disclaim any submission of lit to the country

resigned his seat In the House of Commons on March 30 after he had taken over the War Secretaryship from Col John Seely According to the British custom a member of Parliament on accepting- an office of profit under the Crown Is compelled to give up his seat in order to seek the approval of his constituents fo rhis acceptance of office While the Premier was ab sent from the legislative chamber Reginald McKenna Home Secretary performed tho functions of leader of the House During this short period the home rule bill passed Its second reading The resignation of Col Seely as Secretary of War was brought about by the crisis in the army in connection with the Ulster situation Although about half the popula ion of London spent Saturday after noon demonstrating for and against home rule the majority of tho par aders losing their tempers and many their purses the day closed with a sad damper for the Ulster sympa thizers About 300000 of Londons tribe of nomads at an average cost of fifty cents a head for liquid refreshments had marched to Hyde Park carrying miniature Union Jacks and wearing badges Inscribed Support Loyal Ulster With them marched in taxicabs overfed mem bers of the Stock Exchange holding up heavy cigars They were also joined later by the silkhatted frock coated members of tho Carlton Con itltutional and other Tody clubs some of whom went purple with rage at the cheery comments of the home rule onlookers You dont look as if you were ever evicted wa sane of the comments especially annoying In fact the proceedings would have been entirely harmonious If It had not been for the presence of thousands of home rulers who re fused to bend the knee to Carson and greeted Balfour and other Tory speakers with derisive groans To cap the climax despite all the flag waving trumpet calls fervent reso lutions demanding an Immediate general election references to tho home rulers the suffragettes and tho British electorate came the awful news that the Eastern Unionists al though given the opportunity to throw out the Premier chief author of the deadly plot against Ulster had determined not to oppose him At this piteous anticlimax heretofore unknown the demonstrators melted away to their homes trying to avoid etftlr others gaze BEAUTIFUL PROGRAMME St Peters church Seventeenth and Garland avenue on Palm Sunday evening had one of the finest musical

Representatives r CIRCULAR OFM SEGREGATION Added interest Was given to the contest for the United States Sen atonal nomination during the past week by the visit of exGov Beck ham to Louisville and his call on Mayor Buschemeyer and other offi cials In the City Hall accompanied by R W Knotty editor of the Even- Ing Post This visit was interpreted by many to mean that the city administration and the Democratic organization would throw their united strength to Beckham In the August primary additional proof for this belief being cited by many because of the statement of Edward T Tierney Chairman of the Board of Safety who said that personally he was for Beckham believing he would be the strongest caniddate and that he Intended to vote for him As stated before this statement of Mr Tlerney has been construed and magnified by bath le Beckham and antiBeckham supporters to mean that the LouIsvlllejDemocracy would give the exGovertiofa big majority In the primary ti Herald even go Ing so far as

of the prospective candidates have gone out of their way to recognize the Democrats of this district this applying especially to both the present Governor and exGovernor the appointments- of Gov McCreary being especially notable for the unpopularity of some of his choices while exGov leckham and his chief lieutenant Percy Haly have consistently tried to punish the Democracy of Louisville and Jefferson county simply because of their quarrel with a few men in ths section and the liquor Interests which is past understand- Ing by the many Democrats who consistently supported Beckham In his other races As for the statement- of Mr Tierney It can be cited that many other leading local Democrats have opposite opinions In the race and Judging from the many expressions heard by the writer Beck ham can not carry this district and many are frank enough to state that they will not support him even In the general election on account of his consistent antagonism to local democracy The Kentucky Irish American has no quarrel with Beck ham or any of the other candidates and only publishes these facts be cause of the attempt to create a stampede to the exGovernor by his chief local supporters Although It has been proven to the local Mens Federation that they were In error In condemning ktessrs Barrttt Kuh and Spahri for not supporting their vice commission bill in the recent legislative session there has been no apology offered by the two or three selfappointed re ormer who tVnttol the destinies of the federation for their unjust censure and to an outsider it ap pears their actions are actuated by prejudice pure and simple or out of pique for the defeat of the Bull Moose ticket in the last election Nor has there been any answer to the suggestion made in these columns and from other sources that they turn their attention to the furtherance of Louisvilles interests by the promoting of its enterprises or the Introduction of new ones In lieu of their continual fault finding and con stant nagging of their successful opponents The latest addition to the proposed segregation ordinance has been a circular Issued by some of the colored preachers and school profes sors which attempts to befuddle the Issue by soliciting the support of prominent white people to claim what they term Is an attempt to drive the colored people In the al leys which is a misstatement of the facts In the case as under the or prlv11ege Bred residents only but which Is evidently unsatisfactory to some of the above spokesmen who prefer to live alongside of white people In preference to being with their own kind The General Council should hesitate no further In passing on this ordinance which is conceded to be fair to both races and will be for the good of Louisville

to Engage in Missionary Work PRAISE FOR OUR GOVERNMENT The Most Rev Jeremiah Harty Archbishop of Manila who Is now 1In this country on the advice of his physician who feared that tho pre late would suffer a complete break down unless he left the terrible heat and hard labors of his archdiocese for a short rest in his own climate was last week in Indiana Wednes day evening he arrived for a visit ta- St Meinrad accompanied by the Rev James OBrien pastor of St Margarets church St Louis and ia former student of St Meinradi Seminary Father OBrien was asso elated with Archbishop Harty for many years when the latter was pastor of St Leos church In the same city before his appointment tc ManilaIn address on Saturday before the faculty and students of St Melnrads Seminary and Preparatory College the Archbishop declared that the stories circulated In this coun try regarding tho religious conditions of the Philippine Islands during the ministration of the Spanish friars were calumnies out of whole cloth apparently directed toward Spain when really meant for the Catholic church and are but a part of the plot to rob the Fllipplnos of their faith The Archbishop paid a glowing tribute to the administra tion of the islands by the United States Government There Is a disposition to defame Spain and everything Spanish In re gard to the Philippine Islands said Archbishop Harty but this Is only a guise only a dishonest trick The real motive behind It Is to defame the Catholic church to hinder her work In the islands to rob these poor Filipinos of the faith to which theyaireJEodeyotedandJnBteadJio Clhgxfhirsomethitigbet tter1nnaJt ly make agnostics and scoffers of them t say this with all charity Twenty five years after the discovery of America the Catholic church came to the Islands and her missionaries the Spanish friars began the work of converting and civilizing the people They not only told them of Christ and his salvation but they taught these savage people to build roads to Improve their material condition Everywhere they cared for the sick and the helpless Long before Harvard or Yale existed there was a great university In Manila shedding- Its light throughout the whole Far East Yes and more In 1659 think of It there was opened In the same city a college for the higher education of women In the Philip pines woman is mans helpmate his motherhdodjourney by boat in China and Japan she is mans chattel the slave of his basest passions Who did all this The Catholic church the friarsThese friars are the men who have been heaped with calumnies who have been called moneygetters Immoral and goodness only knows what else I have been in the Islands gentlemen nearly eleven years now I have come Into the thepeoplehonestly can say that I know the situation If any man knows It And I stand before you today and say that these charges are lies I can promise no big saiarlesto times to the aid me No I can promise only hardship and great labors but I can promise a glorious reward for I have the words of Our Blessed Lord Himself Whatever ye have done to these the least of my brethren- ye have done it unto me I am anxious to get back to my flock because I have learned to love them so In fact I see nothing at all pretty In your white faces I love them first because tho Holy Ghost has sent me to them and as well be cause they are good people They have those solid virtues which the Catholic church so strives for They have the greatest respect for law fully constituted authority and the devotion of the children to their parents Is most edifying Despite all the obstacles against which we are working I am absolutely confi dent that the old church not only will hold her own but that she will completelY win the day In the Far East There are 11000000 people on the islands and 8000000 are Catholic the churches always are crowded and sometimes I have gone to places where I heard confessions ill night long together with three other priests and still we had to turn away thousands of people In others I have confirmed 6000 adults and children in one day Scarcely a day passes that four or five delega Lions from various parts of the dio cese do not come to my residence in Manila begging me to send thema priest I sometime ask them if they think I have priests In my cassock pocket But the horizon now is brighter and within the near future I believe that Almighty God will movV the good people of the United States to contribute time means to 0 n educate the many many poor but worthy native boys who are anxious to study for the priesthood Already I have a seminary with fortythre seminarians and more than sixty students in the preparatory college It Is a genuine pleasure for meta toll you how Just our Government has been not only to the Flllplr people but to the church as well There is no grinding down of the natives no extortion no unfairness This is best shown by tho fact that 90 per cent of the Government positions In the Islands are held by Filipinos Not only is tho Government Just but it is efficient as well I am in the heartiest sympathy with our Government in its efforts 1 to teach tho people the English language for as it now is the twenty seven different languages keep them divided and prevent real united action Toward the church Uncle Sam has been Just as fair and that is all the church asks fairness not favors To Mr Taft Is due much Ishapsinpraise and good will for the Govern ment and the sincerest desire to cooperate with it In every movement sayitbless the Stars and Stripes

realizing that they were better off When they were supposed to have been worse off This characteristic Roman expres sion which of late Is frequently c repeated Implies that the past was better than

fralllties and the fears of our mortality cast no shadow on our Immortal hopes The derivation of the word Easter is thedcommon Infidel suggestion that the rebirth of nature in the spring had influence upon the keeping of the feast As a matter of fact as the gospel advanced westward from the mystical East it was the thought of Christs triumph over the grave which gave a new significance to the new buds and blossoms on the hitherto stark branches of the trees and the reversing pf the seasons as Christianity found itself in the Antipodes made no difference in the spirit of its celebration The resurrection of Christ from the dead in the strength and splen dor of his glorified humanity Is the reason for our Joy at Easter whether we spend the feast in the neighbor hood of the North Pole or the South or under the scorching sun of the tropics It Is Christs resurrection at onco an historical fact and a dogma of the Christian falthIfChrist be not risen then is all our preaching valnwhlch
