PRICE FIVE CENTS. AME FOR MEN. Knights of Columbus lnaiiKrate a New Religious AetlTlty In Louisville. First Annual Retreat Open at Cathedral Wednesday Kvenlng. Sermons Will He Preached by the Eloquent Father Ilenedlot llanley, C. P. NON-CATHOLICS ALSO WELCOME With the approval of the Right Rev. Bishop O'Donaghue, Louisville Council, K. of C, will Inaugurate a rew activity in lt firat annual re treat for men. which will be held at the Cathedral, beginning next Wednesday evening and ending on the following; Sunday evening, April 6 For this first retreat the preacher will be the eloquent Father Benedict Hanley, C, P., of the Sacred Heart Retreat, one of the most popular of the local Congregation of Passlon lata, who la widely known and ad mired for his learning, piety and lovable disposition. Preparatory to the retreat the Knights will assemble at their home on Fourth avenue at 7:30 o'clock Wednesday evening, from where they will march in a body to the Cathedral, headed by their Grand Knight, Col. P, H. Callahan. There they expect to find many others gathered, as an invitation haa been extended to every Catholic society in the city, asking the men to attend and bring their friends with them. Every Catholic and non-Catholic man In the Falls Cities is extended a cor dial and hearty invitation to be present at all of the retreat exer cises. The retreat committee, con sisting of Rev. Edward Boea, Chap lain of the council; Rev. P. M. J. Rock, rector of the Cathedral, and Messrs. Leo W. Cross, have been busily at work perfecting arrange ments so that the slightest detail will be cared for. The evening services will consist of the Rosary, sermon and benedic tion, and will begin at 8 o'clock. Each morning at 7:15 o'clock there will be mass and a short Instruction, but Saturday afternoon - and night will be devoted to confessions. Sun day morning the council, with the other societies and men, will ap Twoach holy communion in a body at a special mass at 7:15 o'clock, and that evening the retreat will close with a sermon and the bestowal of the Papal benediction. The sermons as announced by Father Benedict are as follows: Wednesday night. "The Shame of Failure;" Thursday morning, "Faith;" Thursday night, "JuBt Retribution;" Friday morning, "Work;" Friday night, "The Social Evil;" Saturday morning, "Love;" Sunday night, "Every Knight a Man." Congregational singing will also be a feature of the services, and no more majestic or Imposing spec tacle can be afforded than that of thousands of Catholic men pouring forth to Almighty God their thanks giving In song. Annual retreats under the aus pices of ths Knights of Columbus have become a great feature of the religious life of many cities through out the country. The) first such Lenten retreat was held In 1904 In Cleveland, and tho idea was at once taken up by councils elsewhere with pronounced success. Retreats hare been given In Atlanta, Toledo, Mil waukee,' Chicago and other large cities, where the interest among non Catholic as well as Catholic - men has been remarkable. In Chicago the retreat Is given at eight churches simultaneously, so that during the same week everybody has an op portunity of attending at a place con venient to him. This movement has received the unqualified approval of the hierarchy, and Its members have been only too glad to give their time to its advancement. The most brilliant orators in the ranks of the church preach to large and repre sentative bodies of men upon these occasions, and the desire of exempli fying their teachings is everywhere evident by the religious stimulus de rived from the spiritual and moral benefits gained by participation in the exercises. TEST TTT.ERCCLOKIS CURE. Convinced that Dr. Peter Duket, a Chicago physician, has Invented a serum that has and will cure tuber culosis, has led ex-Senator William Lorlmer to richly endow a research laboratory to put this and. other serums to the strictest scientific tests. This laboratory will be es tablished In connection with the medical department of Loyola Uni versity, a Jesuit school in Chicago, and will be called the St. Rita's Laboratory, because Rev. James F. Oreen, the President of St. Rita's College, was the first person to In terest Mr. Lorlmer in the discovery and cures of Dr. Duket. The labor atory will be in charge of Dr. Maximilian Hno, late pathologist for the United States Government, who will be assisted by Dr. Newman Porland, the well known author and professor of the Loyola Medical School. The laboratory will be equipped In every way and facilities will be extended to Dr. Friedman, of Berlin, and any other doctor who will make application. The testa will be made at free clinics, open to all persons suffering from tuber culosis of the lung. The whole medical world will be Interested In these tests, and if the Duket serum Is a success It will be the greatest cure of tho age. Mr. Lorlmer and Father Oreen have both examined Dr. Duket's cures, and say that If appearances count for anything a remedy has been found for consump tion, and that when the laboratory experts are convinced of the merits of the new compound It will be given to the world for the benefit ' of all humanity. (10NE TO JtEST. Mrs.Theresa Walter Daeh r Expires Suddenly Tuesday. When death claimed Mrs. Theresa Walter Dacher last Tuesday morning It was to give her that great eternal reward which she has won through teal and piety as well as a cheerful and charitable disposition. When the sad news became known much sympathy was felt throughout the city because it lost one of Its older and most respected members. Mrs. Dacher was one of the old-time parishioners of St. Martin's church, and her regular attendance as well as her zealous spirit in all church work made her well known to priests and people. She was sixty two years old and for some time had been In ill health, but she bore her suffering with patience and fortitude unin Bl ,V i He opinion, though properly aroused, '7J?L" Vn'rET; Jer l a la?gely in a chaotic and unformed !"'

Catholic Thoughts Which Should He Taken Into More Consideration. HOME VERSUS BUSINESS CAREER There is a great deal of hysteria In the present ferment about white clavery, low wage slavery, vice commissions and minimum wage for girls and women, writes the Rev. Peter E. Diets, who haa given much study to the present day labor and social problems. There la reason for the ferment of course and In the end common sense will dictate a way out and it will be a road to progress.

By nature and by grace woman la destined for the making of homes and rearing the children. The mod ern industrial revolution has vio lently torn woman from her native soil, and outraged nature is wreak ing her vengeance on the human rnce and upon women in particular. The lowered status of woman is one of the penalties for the decadence of related problem of domestic service.

BECKHAM'S Chance For Senatorial Nomina tion Due For a Severe Body Blow. Constitutional Amendment Will .eliminate Him From the Context. Primary Law Sertion Requires Nomination Signatures From Date of May 4. MEFFERT OUT FOR AUDITOR With the almost sure prospect in sight of the adoption of that consti- tutlonal Amendment which requires, the election of United States Sen ators by a direct vote of the people ! Instead of election by the State Legislatures, the chances of captur ing the Democratic nomination by ex-Gov. Beckham are dwindling every day in spite of the boasts of his advance agent, Gen. P. Haly, who ln an Interview this past week stated that Beckham was having the race to himself for the nomina tion. The Democratic vote in the recent election was 219,000, while the Republican and Progressive vote combined amounted to 217.000, which In case the latter two fuse. and ln all probability they will, leaves a bare majority of 2,000 votes ln the Democrats favor, but their candidate must be able to poll the full voting strength, and this candidate for that ' reason can not be Beckham, who if given the nom ination would lose at least 20,000 votes in Louisville, Lexington and Covington, where his popularity has been very much on the wane the past several years. This makes it imperative on; the .)enocxatJcparty to select some other' nominee than Beckham or lose the United States Senatorshlp to the party. The following section of the new primary law Is reprinted in answer to several inquiries in regard to the time of securing signatures to nom ln:!tlng papers and the time of filing same: "Each signer of a nomination paper shall sign but one such paper for the same office, except in cases where more than one office of the same kind is to be filled by the same voters at the same election, ln which ease a voter may sign for as many candidates as there are offices to be filled, and no more. Each signer of a nomination paper SHALL DE CLARE THAT HE INTENDS TO SUPPORT THE CANDIDATE NAMED THEREIN. He shall add his residence and street number, if any, and the date of signing. No nomination paper shall be circulated prior to sixty days before the date by which such paper is reaulred to be filed, and no signature shall be counted unless it has been affixed to such nomination paper and bears date within sixty days prior to the time for filing same." The above section, as can be seen. will require candidates to begin se curing signatures not earlier than May 4 and file aame by July 3. and as we call special attention to. each signer of a petition will declare he Intenda to support .' the candidate whose paper he signs, this will deter many , conscientious citizens from signing papers promiscuously. although there is no' way to compel or tell how a man cast his vote.

The presence of Congressman Swsgar Sherley In town this past w-ek has again agitated the question of the distribution bf pie In the local Postofflce and Custom House, and our Congressman has been urgently requested to put forth his best en deavor at Washington in rewarding the faithful Democrats, who have waited all these years at the pie counter, while the haughty Republi cans now in control lived off the fat of the land.

Threat Ing Head In the United Suites. Property Destruction and Disre gard of Law Its Chief Tenet. Facts as to Its Origin and Scope As Avowed by leaders. OPPOSED TO THE TRADES UNION The strike of the Akron rubber workers has introduced Ohio to "f yndlcallsm," which It is declared "threatens to bring the world face to face with the greatest crisis of modern civilization perhaps of any civilization." The most ' succinct definition of Syndicalism p'hlch can be given is that It is revolutionary Industrial unionism. It is Socialist, but It repudiates the prevailing form ol modern political Socialism; it is an exclusively labor organization, but it la opposed to the orthodox trade unions, and particularly to the American Federation of Labor. It ia a conglomeration of revolutionary trade unionism. Socialism, Anarch ism and 'Nihilism with special feat ures of Its own. Syndicalism la in ternational in origin and aims to be ultimately so in scope. It was hutched in France a dozen years ago, thpn taken to Italy, where it flourished and grew among the Anarchists of that country, without, however, attracting any particular attention; but it made the world "sit up and take notice" when it crossed the Channel to England, and Its leaders assumed managerial direction of the unprecedented strikes in that country within the last two years. It found a lodgment in the United States about eight years ago (naturally in Chicago), rut it did not make itself known outside the inner circles of revolu tionary Socialists until the textile strikes at Lawrence, Mass., last year, and this year at Akron. The Ameri can Syndicalists are the Industrial Workers of the World, better known by the initials I. W. W. The following are the tenets and objects of Syndicalism, either aa formally declared In official utter ances or avowed by acknowledged leaders of the movement, it being observed that ln some countries more stress Is laid on some of the objects than Is the case in others: First Organization of the wage corners Into "Industrial groups" in stead of "craft unions," as is the rule now. Second Fostering the spirit of not only "class consciousness" (as Is the aim of the Socialists), but of bit ter, irreconcilable class hatred on tbe part of all wage earners against ail members of the community who do not perform manual work and rho are "capitalists," or who re ceive their means of livelihood through profit on industry or income from investments. Third Rejection of all form, of political organization and of parlia mentary action, and the denial of the legitimacy of all forms of gov ernment, constitutional and repre sentative, as well as autocratic. Fourth Indifference to all ameli orative and reformative labor, social and political measures. ' Fifth Especial opposition to the police and military. Sixth The habitual use of the strike, particularly the "general strike," not so much to remedy rpeclfic grievances or to establish Improvements In conditions of labor and then only for "training" pur posesas to cripple and ruin em ployers, and to paralyze the indus tries of the country. Seventh The use of "sabotage" that Is, damage to and the de struction of machinery and the means of production and distribu tion. Including such damage to plants as will prevent the operation or what are classed as "public utilities;" and any mean, to inter fere with the process of production end transportation. Eighth The possession of the means of production and distribution by the wage-earners In each Indus trial group, either by the collapse of capitalism throuch th -,.! strike or by forcible seizure. If nec essary, in either rase no compensa tion to be paid. Ninth The establishment of an Industrial Commonwealth," to be ruled by executive committees of rach labor group, which shall take the place of all clvli government as now constituted, Including parlia ments, congresses, legislatures and councils, and all executive and ad- uiiuioirMiive omcers, and all courts, no matter whether the form of gov ernment be republican, monarchical or autocratic. , The great danger that this awful movement would bring is revealed by tbe criticism of Bax, the noted revolutionary Marxian Socialist, who apserts that Syndicalism "is by no means a new phenomenon in the evolution of Socialist thought. So far from being a new doctrine it Is but a thinly disguised Anarchism seasoned with reminiscences of I'roudhon and the constructive theories of Louis Blanc and of LassalU." The 8ynd.calh.ts, like the Anarchists, believe ln the abolition a' all forms of government as now la operation, but they also conteni I lata the substitution of tbe regula t.uii aud management of industries by executives appointed by the dif- ferent Industrial groups and they claim that this is all the government which would be necessary. DISAPPOINTED. But Catholic Knights and Ladles Hold Bis Meetlns. Though greatly disappointed over the non-arrival of Supreme Presi dent Marr and Supreme Secretary Hayes, who could not reach this city from Chicago because of the suspension of train service, the Catholic Knights and Ladies of America held a splendid meeting Wednesday night, Robinson Hall be ing thronged to the doors and all the branches well represented. Thomas Keenan, Sr., occupied the chair and introduced the Supreme Vice President, Miss Mary Sheridan, who expressed regret at the ab sence of the Supreme officers. Re viewing the history of the order founded In this city twenty-three years ago, she said the Knights and Ladles had now branches in fourteen States and had paid beneficiaries over $1,900,000. Patrick Holley, the first and only President Branch 2. the largest In the State, ever had, was proud of his branch and the order and made a strong appeal for Its continuance and growth. Others railed upon were Charles Thoben, Miss Rens Welsenberg, Magistrate P. T. Sullivan, Dan Cunlff, Miss Katie Henley and Presidents C.ude, Schwanlnger and Skelly. A splendid musical programme was rendered by Miss Marie and James Dougherty, Miss Rose Henley and Miss Gorman. The evening's entertainment con cluded with a dainty, luncheon, charmingly presided over by Miss Margaret Norton, Miss Tillie Cunlff and Mrs. Margaret Foley. Another meeting will soon be held when the Supreme officers can reach Louis ville. CLASSY Will Be Trlnitv's tlon of "Miss Dolly Dollars. It has long been an established fact that no two men have done more toward the advancement of light opera and musical comedy in America than Victor Herbert and Harry B. Smith, the former as com poser and the latter as librettist. It is therefore a pleasure for Trinity Council, Y. M. I., to announce that they will produce on the nights of April 7, 8 and 9 at Macauley's Thea ter one of the best musical comedies from the workshop of these two famous authors, namely "Miss Dolly Dollars," a work of great brilliance, full of gaiety and Jollity, haunting melodies, snappy dialogue, and last but not least staged and costumed in a manner dazzling to behold. It has a!ways been the aim of Trinity Council to present to the public only the best, and It will be seen that "Miss Dolly Dollars" will surpass anything ever given by them before. Trinity knows that the public ex Pfcts great things irom any operatic venture It may undertake, and noth ing has been left undone to give the public a most pleasant surprise. The work of the cast and chorus will be worthy of the etfnrta nf nr-r sionala. Those who have seen some or the rehearsals claim unanimously tnat Miss Dolly Dollars" will make the greatest hit nf anvthinv f it- kind ever given ln Louisville before. IIIBEKNIAKS Report Awakening and Boom In the Local Divisions. It was the consensus of opinion of several speakers at the meeting of Division 4, A. O. H., last Monday evening at Bertrand Hall that the Hibernian order in this city Is due for a large Increase in membership and a revival of Interest, this cause being due principally to the recent splendid St. Patrick's day entertain ment, which reflected great credit on 'the order, and again to the live County Board, which under tbe lead ership of President W. J. Connelly is achieving great things in harmon izing tbe different divisions as a .working force. Anthony Neary and Andrew Brogan were obligated to membership by President Hennessy, and It was stated that the Limerick boys promised a repetition ot their recent successful Initiation about the last of May. W. P. McDonogh and Dave Rellly advocated a vote of thanks for the St. Patrick day cele bration committee, which was given with a will. Mr. Rellly statins that the entertainment was the most pleasing ln his opinion In the history of the local order and in bis long cartwr a veteran pieniDer. CARDINAL SUMMONED. Cardinal Peter ResDlahl.

C. A. Windle. editor of Brann's Iconoclast, and himself a Protestant, pays his re spect to these wortkies in the fol lowing iasnion: The object is to slander and rob Catholics of their riehts u Ameri can citizens. It Is unnecessary for Knights of Columbus to deny that this oath is a part of their ritual. it oears internal evidence sufficient to refute the charge. The language in which It is framed proves that It does not belong to this age, but to the period in history when Catholics and Protestants sought to extermin ate each other by fire and sword. This was before Lord Baltimore established the Commonwealth of Maryland and arnnrrilno- t )h. historian Bancroft, "gave religious liberty its first home in the wide world." Lord Baltimore was a Catholic. 'No amount, nf annhi.ir. and lying can obscure this fact. The above oath Is practically Identical with the oath ascribed to the Jesuits nearly four hundred years ago.
