Hon E J McDermott Told
About Opportunities and
the Good of Them
Pleasing Programme Offered at
Opening of Glasses For
the Season
The formal opening of the classes con
ducted by the Catholic Womans Club
occurred at theclub house Monday night
and under the most favorable auspices
Colleges and academies have their com
mencement exercises at the close of the
years work The Catholic Womans
Club reversed the usual order and had
their commencement at the opening of
the season The entertainment was held
on the second floor of the club house and
the two large parlors were all too small
for the cfowd that assembled As a mat
ter of course the greater part of the
audience were womeu but there were a
number of well known Catholic gentle
men present and all were pleased with
what took place The clergy too lent
their encouragement to the club since
the Rev Fathers Schuhmann Melody
and Devine were in attendance and
seemed to enjoy the various numbers on
the programme
J J Caffrey was Chairman of the even
ing and presided in a manner calculated
to win the approval of all The first
number on the programme was a bass
solo Vulcans Song by James P
Roche an old Louisville favorite He
was compelled to respond to an encore
and gave The Nightingale Miss Jodie
McGill was his accompanist

The event of the evening was the lec
ture on Opportunities by the Hon
Edward J McDermott an orator well
beloved in Louisville and one who never
fails to say something new and bright
The lecture should have been heard to be
fully appreciated It was full of sound
and wholesome advice but the advice
was sugar coated with pleasant anecdotes
After complimenting the members of
the Catholic Womans Club on the work I
they were doing Mr McDermott said
the first and greatest concern of every
human being should be the salvation of
his or her immortal soul That main
purpose in life must not be forgotten
But said the speaker we have bodies to
care for and we owe a duty to our Creator
in that we must care properly for those
bodies We must make the most of our
lives The care of the soul Mr Mc
Dermott said be would leave to the
reverend clergy while he would talk of
We can not live a complete life said
the lecturer unless we have some happi
ness The pursuit of happiness is legiti
mate and proper if not sought in devious
or criminal ways Whatever will bring
happiness to ourselves or others ought to
be our aim and care Parents of bright
girls and boys ought to be particularly
solicitous for their welfaretheir happi
nessfor what will make them good
women and men
Success in life said Mr McDermott
was purely comparative One man
thought his lot particularly hard until he
compared himself with some one worse
off or he thought he was eminently suc
cessful until he saw another man with a
greater measure of success Men and
women he said who consider only their
own merits who believe they should
achieve greater success and who fail to
consider others will be always disap
pointed and discontented Men had no
right to be stingy and close to be success
ful women had no right to stint their
children in efforts to become rich Men
and women must be faithful to theirrelig
ion and faithful to the care of the bodies
that God had given theme The strong
man he said was better religiously than
the weak the man or woman who over
taxed or abused he body was not follow
ing the dictates of his religion It should
be the aim of all to lead a rational life
Many blame their failuies onluck If
we prepare for opportunities and are
ready when they come we get about all
we deserve Not all opportunities are
ours One mans trouble may be another
mans opportunity said the speaker and
then be told of the man who swallowed
nickel and how the doctor made him
cough up two dollars Opportunities be I
declared like success were more or less
comparative There were greater oppor
tunities in America than in Russia bet
ter opportunities in Russia than China
greater opportunities now than at any
time In the world and nowhere more
than in this great country of ours Again
be urged that in seeking opportunities
all should be faithful to their religion
the great and only safeguard to any man
or woman
Addressing the young women in partic
ular he urged them to build up charac
ter to stand for truth industry parity
and sweet temper Women need charac
ter btaid1 as well M men The woman
faithful to her trust will be successful
the woman who ia thinking of other
things than what she is paid for never
rises and is poorly paid The lecturer
narrated the various fields of industry
that were being opened up to women and
showed how their opportunities were
widening Women who loved the beau
tiful in nature and art would be success
fnh Good hard common sense said
the speaker was Important to success and
happiness People should rely on them
selves on their own judgment in matters
of great Importance All should read
good books and cultivate taste for good
music and art I
In conclusion Jie said if opportunity
knocked once at our doors and we failed
to take udvantagejof it we must try again
and if we made the most of the opportu
nities we did seiie our mistakes would
all be forgiven Prolonged applause fol
lowed the address
Mrs Katie Carr Costigan sang soprano
solo Good Night Beloved and was I
compelled to give Dreaming as an
encore Her voice is as charming as
ever She was accompanied on the piano
by her daughter Miss Marie Costigan
The Rev Father Schuhmann brought
tne entertainment to a close by announc
ing that there woud be classes in dress

Alms and Philosophy of the I
Gaelic League Set Forth
In Address
Coming of Dr Douglas Hyde to t
America of Interest to
Catholic Protestants Dissent
ers Nationalists and Union
ists All United
In connection with the approaching
visit of Dr Douglas Hyde President of
the Gaelic League the Executive Com
mittee of that body has issued the follow
ing address
To the Irish of AmericaWe the
Executive Committee of the Gaelic
League in Ireland have determined in
response to numerous applications to
send out our President Dr Douglas
Hyde to lay before you in our name the
philosophy and working of the Gaelic
League and its hopes for the future
Preceding our President we are sending
our organizerinchief Thomas OCon
cannon who has traveled every Irish
speaking parish in Ireland and has a
complete grip of the movement in all its
details We believe that we could send
no better representatives than these
When the Gaelic League was established
in 1893 it found the ancient Irish nation
rapidly degenerating into a West British
province or rather into anJEuglish sldreI I
So swiftly and thoroughly was this work
being accomplished it would only have
been a matter of years for the English
school boy when answering in geog
raphy to give Irelandshire as the
name of the biggest of the Englisti coun I
ties The Gaelic League has at leastI I
rendered this consummation once and
forever an impossibility Something ofI I
what it has accomplished may be gathered
from the following examples
It has prevailed upon the socalled
National Board of Education to make
large concessions to the national lan
guage in primary education The num
ber of schools in which the Irish lan I
guage is taught has advanced from 105
in 1899 to over 3000 in 1905 and the
number of children at present studying I
more or less Irish in the schools is nowI I
over 100000 In secondary education it
has prevailed upon the Board of Inter
mediate Education to place Irish in cerI I
tain cases upon an equal footing with
other modern languages The percentage
of intermediate and seconday students
who passed in Irish has risen from 272I I
in 1899 to 2103 in 1901I I
TheGaelic League conducts a monthly
magazine printed solely in Irish and a
weekly newspaper written chiefly in theI I
native tongue All the Nationalist daily
papers and a considerable number of the
Nationalist weeklies publish now more
or less matter in the national language
The Colnmban Annual published fromI I
Maynooth College the organ of 600
students gives a thorough support to the
language movement and is largely writ I
ten in the Irish language The students
who support and write for this magazine
as they leavecollege are becomiug most
powerful factors in the deanglicization
of Ireland When the Gaelic League
started and for some years afterward
the publication a book in Irish was a
rarity which only came at intervals ofI I
years Now scarcely a week elapses
without the appearance of a new book or
pamphlet The number of such books
and pamphlets published and sold during
the last few years from the offices of the
Gaelic League alone not to mention
other publishing agencies amounts to at
least a quarter of a million each year
There are hundreds of Irish writers
throughout the country none of whom
would ever have become writers in Eng
lish So great has been the development
in this direction that we are convinced
that the intellectual future of the Irish
race Is bound up with the Irish language
The general and frank recognition of
the national language which ten years
ago was hardly recognized as existing I is
shown by the action of many of the pub
lie elected bodies in Ireland The cor
poration of the capital for example has
made Irish a compulsory subject for its
officials No one can now obtain even a
clerkship under the Dublin corporation
withouta knowledgeof the national lan
guage The County Councils of Cork
and Mayo have done the same so have
the corporation of Limerick the Moy
Commissioners the Ballina Harbor Com
missioners and others In other cases
Irish la now an optional subject for ex
amination as in the Incorporated Law
Society the Royal College of Surgeons
the College of Physicians the Pharma
ceutlcal Society the National Bank the
Munster and Leinster Bank the Hiber
nian Bank etc In several dioceses
notably the Ferns diocese Wexford
where Irish has been extinct for over
half a century the managers of schools
will not now appoint any school teacher
who can not teach Irish In the Royal
University of Ireland Irish is on the same
footing as English and carries the same
amount of marks When we consider
that all ibis has been accomplished by
the Gaelic League within the brief space
of less than a dozen Mnadi in i the
teeth of ImtiMMMe apsti obttae1 of
all kinds its success seems little short of
I a miracle
Vitally bound up with the language
movement is the industrial movement
which has made great stridesduring the
last few years At first sight there would i
appear no reason for the connection be
tween the industrial and the language
revival but the reason is obvious when
pointed out It is in brief this When
a man learns Irish and thereby for the
first time feels himself a real Irishman
in close spiritual communion with the
past of the once great Irish nation whose
nationality he is now determined at all
hazards to rescue he will not satisfy
himself by merely being Irish on the
lips He will be Irish all over in bis
clothes in his hat and even in his boots
This is a law of invariable occurrence
and it has within the last few years
nearly doubled the output of the Irish
cloth mills Not in Ireland alone may
this phenomenon be witnessed Hungary
and Belgium for example afford sInk I
ing illustrations of it With the neglect
of their language the industries of each
like the Industries of Ireland decayed
to nearly the vanishing point but with
the revival of their home languages new
industries once more increased and
became flourishing and powerful
Another indirect outcome of the indus
trial movement which itself largely
flows from the language movement will
be the giving employment to the peo
pIe at home who will be engaged upon
these industries in evergrowlng propor
tion The industrial movement aft an
offshoot of the language movement is
still in its Infancy According as the
language movement succeeds the indus
trial movement is bound to grow in pro
portion and when it has done so it will
afford that employment to Irishmen
which they are now driven to look for in
America and other countries
Another thing that the language move
ment does is to inculcate a spirit of self
respect An Irishman can scarcely come
into contact with the great past of his
own race absolutely ignored in Irish life
until lately without feeling his respect I
fori his ancestors and consequently for
himself immensely increased and
strengthened This sense selfrespect
has been a great factor on the side of the
temperance movement The result of
this has been that for the last three
years for the first time in centuries
there bave been fitting observances ofI I
St Patricks day in the capital of Ire
land and elsewhere as a national boli
day Much has been done L bnt much
very much remains to be accomplished
The first step towards the realization of
Ireland a nation in a true and spiritual
sensehas been taken but it laonly the
first At no time during the last hun
dred years did matters seem so hopeful
or did there appear such an opportunity
of giving reality to the aspirations and
hopes of every true son of Ireland
The Gaelic League owes these great
successes to the broad basis upon which I
it is founded It recognizes in every
Irishman a brother regardless of his
religion or his politics On its platform 4
are found working side by side in a spiritI I
of union and brotherly loveCatholic
Protestant Dissenter Nationalist
Unionist and all are actuated by theI I
same desire to raise from the dust the
language music games traditions
industries and glory of Ireland It is in
this spirit that we would ask you to
receive our representatives and we hope
and trust that whenever you may be
good enough to organize a meeting for
the purpose of bearing at first hand of
our movement that meeting like the
Gaelic League at home may be repre
sentative of all parties of Irishmen no
matter how divergent otherwise heir
opinions may be Dr Douglas Hyde
will arrive in America November 15
1905 Mr Thomas OConcannon is now
in America engaged in the work of
organizing for Dr Hydes lectures
and we bespeak for his efforts the hearty
and generous cooperation of all Irish I
men Communications to Mr OCon
cannon regarding Dr Hydes visit andI I
lectures should be addressed as follows

SaloIH Council Y M I gave a house
warming inks new and cozy quarters
on the northwest corner of Sixth and
Breckinridge streets last Monday night
Satolli is getting back to the neighbor
hood of the old Logan Council It is in
every way centrally located and has an
immense and thickly populated territory
to draw from It should by all means be
to the center of the city what Trinity is to
the East and Mackin is to the West End
If its members will now get together and
start a crusade for new members they
should ere long run up a roll of three
hundred They might restrict them
selves to that territory west of Preston
and east of Fifteenth and from the river
to the city limits and still have plenty of
room to work and plenty of material to
draw from
The new quarters are on the third
floor and are comfortable as well as
tastefully decorated The parlors are In
front while immediately behind them
are the meeting ball anteroom etc
When the guests arrived Monday evening
the tables were decorated beautifully and
the glasses were so arranged by Harry
Colgan as to form the figures 193 the
number of Satolli Council Prof Hem
mersbach William J OSullivan and
William McDonogh welcomed the guests
and made all feel at home The house
warming was formally opened with an
address of welcome by President John J

some quarters He tolduM j
Joint Committee had done and what
being done by its employment bureau
and said it should be an Incentive to se
cure employment for other members out
of work In conclusion he invited all of
Satollis members to visit Mackin Coun
cil as often as the occasion offered
William id Higgins editor of the
Kentucky Irish American was intro
duced and after complimenting his hosts
on their new home urged them to
greater efforts He wanted Satolli to
build up a big membership like Mackin
and Trinity In some quarters he said
Satolli was known as a silk stocking
organization and whil he did not be
lieve it altogether true he t pleaded with
the members to bring in the young men
who work in factories and macbin
shops They would lie declared be
found to be the best wprkers in the
Attorney Sam Boldrifik one of Satollia
pioneer members ws introduced He
said It was like Oldtimes to wander back
again to the old neighborhood and to
meet the boys of former days He said
the associations of the members of Sa
tolll had always been pleasant All
young men liked to know and meet each
other said Mr Boldrick and they were
given this opportunity in the Young
Mens Institute iri general and In Satolli
Council In particular The Y M I
caters as does no other Catholic society
to the young men
Vice President J J Kavanagh de
clared in his brief address that Satolli
was not the silk hat and spiketailed
coat organization it was sometimes
declared to be On the other hand
it had always adhered to the
highest standard of young Catholic man
hood He said he was glad to get back
to Satollia old stamping ground and IMT
predicted that from henceforth Satolli
would increase In membership and would
be a bulwark of the church
Joe Lenihan was then called for He
said he was not one of the speakers but
bad always been a worker In the trenches
He said that at this meeting Satolli was
taking the right steps and he promised
