Friends of llrennan and Itltig'
ham ltiisy With Mayoralty
In accordance with the new rules
of the Democratic State convention
as promulgated at Louisville last
May, this afternoon will witness the
first step In the reorganization of
local Democratic committees all over
the State. At 2 o'clock this after
noon the Precinct Chairman will
call the precinct conventions to
gether and elect a Precinct Commit
teeman, the latter to meet in their
different Legislative districts next
Monday and elect a District Chair
man, these to meet the following
Wednesday and elect the Chairman
and official head of the city and
county committees. In this, the
Fifth district, there will be but slight
changes In the party organization,
which Is the most successful of Us
kind in years, and Its detail work
from the Chairman down to precinct
workers is a veritable rock of Gll
braltar, and the rank and file of
Democracy are contented with the
present Tegtme. In the First ward
our next Postmaster, Dick Schmltt,
will succeed George Heller as Chair
man, while Judge Gocke, John J.
Barry, Robert J. Hagan, Joseph
Overberg, Theodore McCrory and
John L, Gruber will be chosen with
out any opposition. These District
Chairmen will again select Frank
McGrath as Chairman of the City and
County Committee, his ability as an
organizer and a harmonizer of all
factions making him the logical man
for leader of the Democratic hosts.
As a tribute to the present successful
committee every Democrat should at
tend his precinct convention this
afternoon and voice his sentiments
for the re-election of the above
Now that Percy Haly has finished
his volley of press clippings to some
of the country papers containing
reasons why Beckham should be
given the nomination for United
States Senator, the reaction Is begin

servative Democrats are asking
would It be wise policy to risk a seat
In the United States Senate by choos
ing a man who In the last several
years has been responsible for more
quarrels and apllU in Democratic
circles than any other ten reasons.
His forcing of the liquor question
Into Democratic politics, his con
tinual warfare with Henry Watter
son, his rupture with the Louisville
Democracy, and his last year's fight
with "Billy" Klair and the Lexington
Democracy, have made him very un
popular and his nomination would
again split the party asunder, which
end the Louisville Herald and Even
ing Post have been openly workin
for, their advice to Democrats to
nominate Beckham being good anc
sufficient reason why he should be

Martin's Church Bruederbund had a
happy celebration --ot r the thirty
eighth anniversary Wednesday night,

dwelt upon the benefits of organiza
tion and the great good resulting
therefrom, pointing to the recent
Federation convention as an Illustra
tion. This brotherhood, he said, has
helped dry many a tear and pre
vented misery, poverty and want,
thus proving an angel of charity.
Father Bohlsen urged every man
present to become a member, thus
making themselves better Catholics
and citizens. Rev. Father Frederich
Bpoke upon federation, telling his
hearers that when they have some
thing good to keep it rolling. The
editor of the Kentucky Irish Ameri
can was present to congratulate the
brotherhood upon its success ana tne

T. P. O'Connor. M. P., cables the
press that for several days last week
it looked as If the Tory party were
breaking all to pieces. Few of them
even entered the House of Commons,
and even the home rule bill was left
to be discussed by William Moore,
one of the Ulster Orangemen who,
seated alone and still snorting fire
and flame, though with manifest de
pression of spirits, seemed like the
last of the Tory Mohicans. The
melancholy and long hatchet face of
Bonar Law, opposition leader, grew
dally longer and more melancholy,
and he also seldom visited the House
of Commons. He was allowed to
sit for hours alone without the
chaerlng presence of a single one of
his fellow leaders of the Tory party
when he did attend.
In the meantime the grim and
melancholy silence in the House of
Commons was in great contrast with
the deafening and horrid din of the
rival newspapers. The Morning Post
and Dally Express foamed at the
mouth over the proposal to drop food
taxes, while Lord Northcllffe in the
Dally Mall and Times went on his
way with his characteristic serenity,
not replying to the insults but stick
ing obstinately to the cry that the
food taxes must be dropped.
Lancashire added to the confusion
of the situation by sending a deputa

pewerful leader as Lord Derby, and

was evident that, in spite of the
fulmlnations from Austen Chamber
lain and the whole Birmingham
school, the free fooders formed the
overwhelming majority of the party
and that they must get some con
cession. All this led up to a compromise
which is deliberately ambiguous, al
lowing both sections to claim the
victory. The immediate prospect is
that the truce will be maintained for
the next two years, for all of the
Tories are made desperate by the
prospect of seven years more ex
clusion from office and the loss ot
the next and fourth general election
In succession if they do not close up
their ranks. Their one watchword
for the moment is to get the Liberals
out of office and wTn the next elec
tion. The seeds of future disruption
remain, however, for protection is
so discredited by the gigantic boom
of English trade and by the three bad
general elections that many of the
Tories still pray that protection may
ultimately be abandoned. Bonar Law
may at any moment, by some other
muddle headed announcement, once
more put the fat In the fire.
The Liberals and the Irish and
home rule have naturally grown
stronger and more selt-conrident
during this Tory disruption and the
final stages of the home rule bill are

considerably Influenced by the re-
suit. If the Nationalists win, they
will hold seventeen to sixteen In the
repreesntation of Ulster, and the
winning of even this small majority
will help obliterate the claim of the
Orangemen that they represent an
overwhelming majority ot the opin
ion in Ulster. The Nationalists have
wisely chosen a Protestant and a
Liberal instead of a Catholic and
Nationalist to make their tight, and
