PRESENT QUARTERS CRAMPED The Sisters of the Good Shepherd, who have been performing a great work of charity in Louisville during the past seventy years, are now about to begin a new undertaking, which should appeal to every charitable person in Kentucky, black and white, Catholic and Protestant. Volun tarily the Sisters have placed this new burden upon themselves. They have confidence in Divine Providence and feel assured that their new un dertaking that of building a mon astery and industrial home espe cially for the care of colored Infants and colored girls will be success fully carried out, though It will take years of toil and much anxiety to fully carry It forward. The Sistera some time ago pur chased fifteen acres of land on the Newburg road, not far from the Passlonlst Monastery. and there ground will be broken next week for the new monastery to replace the pioneer convent of the order now located at Eighth and Madison streets. Thia latter has become too cramped to hold all of the inmates offered, and a new building and grounds had become a necessity even had not the good Sisters about a year ago placed an additional burden upon themselves by proposing to take care of children of the age of three years and upward. There are quite a number of infants now in the Eighth-street monastery, which has a total of 160 persons including the Infants. There is no institution in Louisville to take care of Infant negro children who have no homes, and without any solicitation upon the part of the public the Good Shepherd Sisters undertook the work and now propose to carry It out upon a large scale. The fact that the Sisters are to give especial attention to the negroes, infants as well as grown ups, must not be taken as an Indica tion that the whites are to be neglected. On the contrary, they will be looked after with more care than ever; in fact the Sisters will have better facilities for looking after the white females of all ages with the blacks all to themselves. There is a colored population of over 25,000 in Louisville, but' no one seems to care for the poor negro children of tender years. No one thought of them until the Sisters took up the matter, and they intend to solve it. It matters not that less than 5 per cent, of the negroes In Louisville are of the Catholic faith, tha C.ood Sheoherd will look after them. At no time during the seventy years of activity of the Good bnep herd Sisters In Louisville have they Inquired from those who knocked at heir Von vent doors whether they . Catholic. Protestant. Jew or unbeliever. They rejoice to receive 11 vhn ara nenltent. The convent of the Good Shepherd at Eighth and Madison streets is the mother house of the order in the United States. From this house have gone forth thousands of penitents, and some have remained aa inn as a half century or more, one remaining until ahe passed away at the age of eighty-three years About a half hundred of other con vents of the order have been estab lished in this country and Canada since the monastery at Eighth and Vartlann streets was hullt and opened on September 8, 1843. In deciding to take care of the negroes espocially the Sisters have in mind tha admonition of the Superioress flan Bra l nf the order, who. In ad dressing the five Sisters who first oam from the mother house at Angers. France, said among other thlno-a' "I need not remind you, my dear daughters, to receive negresses as well as white children, either as nenltenta or young children both for which Jesus Christ shed his blood. Moreover, I can as sure you, -negroes are susceptible of great affection and gratitude." The Sisters have done the very best they could for the colored chil dren up to this time, birt they hope to do better in the future. They will prevent many of the negro race from becoming a menace to society and will make those under their care beeome useful citlzeus, teaching them bow to save, their souls, and at the same time learn how to niaks an honest living when tbey go out into the world. The Slstera teach the little ones their lettere and the grown ups various arts, such as painting, uiubIc. drawing, sewing, embroidery and cooking. There Is no Idleness in the convent of the Good Shepherd. After over 151 years of experience in handling such un fortunates the Sisters know that work Is the thing to keep their uiluds ,.,. vil thluK. and work, work, work ! their motto. It must not be 1 n furrMil however, that it is all work ,t mi Llav la the convent. The in mates of all classes have their recre ation hours with music, siugin Hard Indeed ha been the lot of the SiHtem of the C.ood Shepherd rlous members. The first was as alnre they first landed at the Port- signed to Grand Knight J. J. Kin, l.mrf wharf In Louisville nearly nd the next will be read by Owen seventy years ago. They had no home to go to, and were cared for by the Sisters of Loretto at their convent In Cedar Grove. When they rented a house the landlord refused to let them move In when he learned the character of work they were to undertake, to wit, lifting from the mire of degredation women who are fpared and shunned by society and of whom our Saviour said: "Neither will I condemn thee; go now and sin no mors." Of all the orders in the Catholic church the Sisters of the Good Shep herd undertake the most disagreeable nart Accounts of their labors never appear In the public prints. The in mates are forbidden to give their names to their fellow penitents, and their real names are only known to the Sister Superioress. The work has always appealed to the editor of the Kentucky Irian im.i-linn aa helng heroic. Notwith standing their noble deeds in behalf of fallen women the Knownothlngs insulted these good Sisters in iaft, and again In 1894, during the A. P. A fiasco, in the latter crusade the editor of this paper was threatened with a libel suit because ne De nounced the lnsectlverous A. P. A. cohorts who dared Insult these good women by demanding admission to their convent for a pretended investi gation of their work. .... It was the toresignt oi saintlv man, Benedict Josepn r lagei, first Bishop of Louisville, which brought the Sisters of the Good Shep herd to Louisville. While traveling In France he had an opportunity of witnessing their work at Angers, and he Induced the Superioress General to send five Sisters here. When the good Bishop died he was ounea in the graveyard in tne convent gruunua and his remains reposed there until removed to the Cathedral of the As- sumption, me uounvinr O.c.o n veneration the name or lagei. Bishops Spalding ana aicvioskbj also appreciated the work of the Sisters, as does the present Right Rev. Bishop O Donagnue. msnop McCloskey visited the Sisters every Sunday while in the city during his lifetime and such was tne custom oi his predecessor, Bishop Martin John Spalding. Mother Mary or tne uompassiuii he nresent Superioress of the con vent at Eighth and Madison streets, and she has also undertaken the work of building the new monastery. The Sisters of the Good Shepnera never ask for anything. They try to make their work self-sustaining, which they often do. but how they are to build a new monasteryjwithout more assistance than they have been receiving is past our comprehension. May success attend them, and may the charitably disposed help tnem. Nothing has been said In this article about the Bank street con vent of the Good Shepherd, which is flourishing greatly, the purpose be ini to draw attention to the ex tension of a new charity Just about to be inaugurated. To write or tne work of the Sisters In Louisville durlns: the seventy years of their labors would require many columns that would fill this paper, but from time to time the Kentucky Irish Irish American will call attention to their work.

HOLY NAME Lexington Men Appealed to by rather Clement Bocklage. A large and appreciative audience heard the Rev. Clement Bocklage, of Carrollton, In a forceful address be fore the members of the Holy Name Society of St. Peter's church, Lexing ton, Sunday evening. Taking for his text the words of Scripture, "How wonderful is thy name on earth, O Lord." the speaker dwelt upon the prevalence of swearing among men. and the growing habit among youths of the land to Indulge in blasphemous language. He said that the purpose of the Society of the Holy Name was to suppress this growing irreverence and to Increase the veneration or tne world for the name of God. Father Bocklage suoke of how the learned men of the church had written of the beauty and sweetness of the name "Jesus." which In Itself means mercy, and at the pronounclatlon of which all beads should bow, and ex horted the members to enlarge their membership and to continue the good work, which in the short history of the society has had such a good in fluencs on the members and those with whom they associate. Special music for the service was sung by Miss Margaret Benchart, Miss Louise Keller, Slgnor Amato and Ferdinand Keller and the choir. Tfca services were concluded wltH"'uedlction, Rev. W. T.

GUARDIANS Having Tron hies In Tlielr Own Jtnnks While Trying to Save the Country. , Kx-('oiiKrew.Hiiiiin Haines and lr. Harnett Now Buy With New I. A. Movement. Latter State That Lodges Guardian Are Hying With of Hrlef Sputter. WHERE DOES DAVE ROSE STAND? Readers' of the Kentucky Irish American will remember the attempts of a few bigots here to organize A. P. A. branches under the head of the "Guardians of Liberty" at Scottish Rite Cathedral on May 23 last, with several of Louisville's prominent Citizens being conspicuous by their presence on the stage. Post master Woods, Assistant Postmaster Morey, Filmore Tyson, Rear Admiral Watson, ex-Mayor Weaver, Andrew Cowan, D. B. G. Rose, business man ager of the Evening Post, who be came the official head of the Guardians in Kentucky, and others. The speakers were Major Gen. Miles, ex-Congressman Haines and Rev. Dr. Barnett, a Philadelphia minister, all taking a fling at Catholics as citizens and the Catholic church. Now it seems all is not peaceful among these ang;" - "Members of the Guardians of Liberty from different parts of the field have advised headquarters of the receipt by them of letters In wnlch tfln names of Charles D. Haines, Auguhtus Barnett and J. B. cleaver occur as the promoters of a new order based on secrecy among its memberi ..This organization has no relation to or dealings with the Guardians of Liberty, even though the names above mentioned are per sons who have hitherto been actively Identified wl'.h the Guardians. Local courts should be on the watch so as not to be- misled Into any confusion on this matter." In reply the Rev. Dr. Barnett, who Is referred ; to above as Augustus Burnett ..tnes. back with Qiejtollow- ing not reoiy: "Since November 12, the date of mr resignation, I have been active with others in organizing a new or der, which seeks to remedy the fatal defects of the Guardians of Liberty. We have refused to admit certain men, though they have applied, for we were determined that the new organization should have no wreckers in it. Unquestionably this action was bitterly resented, and I have been expecting somebody to hit back. Dr. Buck and Gen. Miles were fully cognizant of my activity in this direction. I want it well understood that I am forever disassociated wl' the Guardians of Liberty, since I ob ject to my name, for which I have more regard than my life, being dragged through the slime of selfish ness and treacherous Intrigue." Dr. Barnett said that no action probably had been taken upon his resignation in November, but since then he had taken no part at all In the work of the organization. He said: "I was compelled to take this action for good and sufficient reasons. There Is no coherency about the order. Courts everywhere go to pieces almost as soon as they are formed. I have hundreds of letters n my possession telling me of disin tegration all over the country. When a court In etttabUi.lieo' there Is a brief sputter, and then the under. taker." Louisville people are anxiously awaiting to see where D. B. G. Rose, of the Evening Post, and the official organizer of the Guardians, stands In the argument whether with the regular "Guardians" or the insurgent Guardians," and whether the Ken tucky courts are going out with the brief sputter Dr. Barnett refers to. INITIATION. Division 3, A. O. M., lias Another Big Class Ready. Division 3, A. O. H., had a big at tendance at the meeting Mouday night, when it was decided to ronfor the degrees of the order on a big class on the evening of February 3, to which all Hibernians will be In vlted. Division 3 will hereafter hMd monthly initiations, conferring the degrees on the first Monday nights. It Is thought this will increasa the Interest and help gain more mem. bers. Lawrence Mackey was desig nated to examine and prepare re port of the changes made in the State and national constitutions. When the routine business had been completed President Hourlgan called upon a Dumber of those present, who responded with quite interesting aud Instructive talks. Announcement was made that a special meeting of the social club had been called for Monday night, and from hints dropped It will be lively aud of inter est to the members. HEIUUO BESCl'H. But for the timely assistance of Capt. Dan Kane, the well known river pilot, there might have been serious los of life from escaping gas and flames early Saturday morning at the residence of Mrs. Mary O'Nell, 2716 West Chestnut street. Miss Margaret O'Nelfl was awakened about 3 o'clock by gas and smoke and succeeded In arousing her mother and sister, who were almost over come. Capt. Kane was attracted by the screams of the women and ar rived Just in time to rescue Mrs. O'Neill from the cellar. He tele phoned for the fire department and then made three Ineffectual attempts to rescue B. E. Clark and his wife, whose escape was cut off by the flames. Capt. Kane was overcome by the smoke and fumes and had to be carried into the open air after the firemen reached the scene. Physi cians were summoned and the victims soon recovered. The O'Neill home was damaged to the extent of $1,500. Capt. Kane's friends say he deserves a Carnegie hero medal. VINCENTIANS Throughout World to Hon or Frederic Oianum'i Memory. The movement for the celebration on April 23 next of the centenary of Frederic Ozanum Is becoming gen eral on the Continent. In Milan, where he was born, a special commit tee which has been appointed to promote It, has decided to brln,? out a cheap edition of his life, and In Paris, where through his activity and his fearless devotion to the faith his influence became so powerful for good, the Catholics are taking ateps to make the commemoration worthy of the man. The English-speaking people are about to enter Into rivalry with the foreigners In paying tri butes to Ozanjim's memory. Nothing could he better than that adopted at Milan for making his lif better known and the stimulus of his ex ample more widely felt by the rising generation should be Initiated by gls admirers. The world needs today as it did in his life-time lay apostles governed by the spirit that animated htm. Too often there is ground now for saying what was said to those around him before he founded the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. "You are full of talk and theory, but there It ends." Ozanum was no mere theorist. He was essentially practi cal and was ready to make any sacri fice In order that Catholic ideals might be realized. MACKIX COUNCIL nterest Increasing In Pro- "''"posed ' Gymnasium" ' Building. Another large attendance and good receipts marked the meeting of Mackln Council this week, wnen two more applications were received and the sick members were reported im proving. So great has become the interest in the proposition to ouua a gymnasium that Its conlsderatlon has been made a special order for the first meeting in February. In this connection Louis J. Klefer, physical Instructor for the gymnasium class. called upon those who desire to par ticipate in the March athletic meet and carnival at the Armory to report within the next few days. For next Monday night the Literary Society has arranged a debate that will prove Interesting, and In addition James Shelley will relate his experiences during twenty years as a salesman on the road. The social club announces that the last of its winter series oi dances would take place on January 30 when all members and inetr friends would be welcome. During the evening a number of members suggested that a movement be In augurated for a Joint initiation by Unity, Trinity and Mackln, the three Falls Cities councils, at a aaie io selected after Easter. CONUKESS Sends Congratulations to Supporters of Home Rule Bill. A resolution congratulating the British House of Commons and the Irish people on the passage of the the Irish home rule bill by the Houbb of Commons was Introduced In the House Friday by Representative r.ondwln. of Arkansas. The resold tlon declared that Irish "struggles for freedom have appealed to all trim Americans, who love freedom; congratulated the people of Ireland anl the House of Commons upon the nuuaaaa o r the home rule bill. The Secretary of State was directed to forward copies of the resolution to Premier Asqulth, John K. Redmond and Augustine Blrrell, Chief Secre tary for Ireland. A cablegram was mant hr Rnnreaent at 1 ve Donohoe, of Pennsylvania, to John E. Redmond the Irish leader, congratulating him tnr "frtanda of Ireland in the Ameri can Congress" upon the passage of the bill. TOUCH CHANGES. Several important 'changes were made in the police department this nast week, and as stated Dy inair man Edward Tlerney, of ths Board of Safetv. and Chief of Police Llndsey were principally for ths good of the service, chiefly on the principle that a chinis In surroundings aud ioc tlon have a beneficial effect ou the men, this system being adapted by evrv Dromlueut police department In the country. Capt. Frauk Port man of tha Central district, ex- changed places with Capt. Michael Hogan, of the Seventh, while Ser geant Pat Mullen was promoted to Lieutenant vice Lieut. James Gardner, resigned. Patrolmen John Ridge and Tim Stone were made Sergeants to fill the vacancies cre ated, these appointments being pleas ing to their many friends, who know them to be efficient in, their duty. In spite of the attempts of the Herald and Post to magnify minor' troubles In the department, there la no deny In? the fact that the present police force Is in line with Mayor Head's .plendld administration, the best In the history of Louisville. Y. M. I. Splendid Initiation and Banquet In New Al bany Sunday. I'nlty Council, Y. M. I., of New Albany, had a gala day Sunday, when twenty-five young men were received Into membership. The hall was thronged with the manhood of New Albany, and In addition Mackln and Trinity Councils, of Louisville, were represented by large numbers. With this class Unity Council now take the lead In Indiana. The initiatory ceremonies were conducted by the Louisville degree team, composed of W. A. Link, George Thornton, Dan J Hennessy and J. Robert Muhs, who gave the best exemplification ever witnessed by Unity Council. Follow ing the Initiation there was an elaborate and enjoyable banquet at the Tavern Hotel, presided over by John Pontrich as toast master. The Invocation was offered by the Rev. Father Charles Curran, of Holy Trinity, and among the number who responded to toasts were the Rev. Father Selbertz, of St. Mary's; Supreme President Robert T. Burke and ex-President Fred iRelsz. Unity Council Is now contemplating im provements to its property that will cost not less than $12,000. GALWAY. Chlcagoana Will Revolu tionize Industry In Irish Pork. A syndicate headed by a couple of Chicago men is in process of forma tion in the West of Ireland,1 which, it is believed, will go far to revolution ize the Irish pork industry in Great Britain. The men in question are George J. Coleman and Edward C. McDonald, who claim to have quite a unlnue experience of the business gathered in the Chicago stockyards continent. The scene of their operations will be the city of Galway, where they propose to set up a modernly equipped factory which will be capable of handling anything from 70,000 to 80,000 pigs annually, and the main object will be cheap and rapid production, which will have the effect of considerably reducing the price. The promoters of the scheme have been trying for a long time to understand the eco nomic considerations that prompt the Irish people to send their pork and bacon abroad, while they an nually Import thousands of tons of meat from the United States and other places. The experiment of en deavortng to keep Irish bacon In the land of Its origin and oust the for eign product will be watched with some anxiety by the Irish industrial revivalists GUESSING Who Wl 11 Be the first Mem ber of Irish Sen ate. From Dublin comes Intelligence that a new kind of guessing game Is tn considerable favor Just now with the most eminent politicians. The problem ia to indicate who are the distinguished forty that will, when the home rule bill comes Into opera tlon, be chosen as the first members of the Irish Senate. Of course you Inevitably select the men that repre sent your shade or thought, and some lively arguments arise when you chance to ".butt In" against strong partisans of eminent nobodies who seem to retain a lot or Insignifi cant people up and down the country to give tongue to their praise. Most people here, however, believe that the following names figure on the Government's provisional list of men suitable to serve In the Irish upper house: Cardinal Logue, tha Bishop of Kapboe, Earl or Dunraven, Lord Castleton, Lord Plrrie, the President of Maynooth, Lord Mc Donnell, John Redmond, William Redmond, the Very Rev. James Red mond. 8. J., John Dillon, T. W. Rus sell, Joseph Devlin. Sir E. Esmonds, L. Glnnell, k. Lynch. Patrick O'Brien and J. G. 8wlft McNeil. O'UKII LY S DAI UHTKIl. Miss Mary Boyle O'Reilly, who ap peared before a Congressional inves tigation committee last week in Washington, though still young In years and In face and heart. Is gray in useful action. Her name Is the best known Irish-American name in New England. It gives her entre alike la the exclusive Back Bay of Boston, lu the offices of Governors, Senators and Presidents, among phil anthropists, editors aud social woik ers. in factories and in prisons. This brilliant woman is the daughter of John Boyle O'Keilly, tha famous Irish patriot and poet, Imprisoned aud exiled for his efforts to free Ire laud, and revered as one of the gr-.at names of Boston.

Samuel Young, Bel fast merchant and a Protestant and a member of the Irish party, who Is ninety-one years old, made a speech and voted for the home rule bill. Similar efforts were made by the Liberals. Robert Cameron, eighty- seven years old. was brought to theJ House by a special motor car and was allowed to vote without going Into the lobby, not being able to walk. Many members left sick beds. Only two Liberals voted against the bill, and every absent Liberal was paired. In the closing days the debate was also marked by the conspicuous tri umph of the home rule speakers. Both Asqulth and Redmond made the speeches of their lives, while the Tory attark waa feeble and de pressed. Meantime conslderaLL ! change has come over the -T. Tory attitude.
