Surely if the authorities In postal matters at Washington should see this report this man Schmidt, if he is properly reported, could not be entertained for this high office." The above is simply another at tempt to cloud the Issue In the case and prevent the removal of the men who were proven guilty In the O'Don tell case of circulating School Boaru petitions, while other cases of em bezilement and inefficiency have cropped out in the last couple ot years, enough to make all decent citizens anxious for a change. It Is a safe bet that Dick 8chmttt, not Schmidt, will give more satisfaction to the public at large and fairer treatment to all employes, regardless of creed or politics, and as for the "notorious Col. Whallen," as styled by our narrow-minded bigot of the Baptits World, the Louisville public of all creeds owe more to the man who fed and clothed thousands In our severe winter of last year, and raised thousands of dollars for the Salvation Army, than his critic, who might try to emulate Col. Whallen s example from a charity standpoint nd obtain some of his notoriety, but it Is general knowledge that men of the type of the Baptist World writer confine their efforts to adopting resolutions of sympathy during times of distress or trouble. The announcements of Dr. Mech llng for Coroner and Deloa B. Rogers for Police Judge appear In these columns today, subject to action of the Democratic primary, and both are now busy campaigning. Dr. Mechllng'a many followers In local athletic circlea are busy In his lnter esta and intend to form a ward an J precinct organisation. James Duddy haa also announced .for Constable In the Eleventh and Twelfth wards and !s known aa Roger Nohalty'a protege, Roger being at the head ot hla campaign committee. The efforta of the Herald to arouse sny enthusiasm among the Progres sive voters of last November are growing feebler dally and few are interested enough to suggest possible nominees. It la presumed that Prof. Ragsdale and the other Progressive leaOers will incorporate the legalii Ing of prize flghU In their platform, as the. recent fist fight in the com mittee meeting was the best adver tised feature of the Progressives thua far. CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY. Ha frlenda throughout the country are pleased to learn that, after its reverses ot former years, the Cath ollo University of America at Wash ington la again entering upon a period of growth and expansion.

For some time past the three councils have been making special effort to secure candidates for this initiation, each determined to make the best showing, and while no figures are given out there will be at least 100, .nd the number may reach 150. The day's programme will open at he Cathedral of the Assumption at 7:45 o'clock with a special high mass, at which the Rev. P. M. J. Rock, the rector, will be the cele brant and preach the sermon.

I. of the country Is now composed of two Jurisdictions, and this will be the first vlsdt of Grand President Keefe since the Pittsburgh convention ot last year. This is truly an organization for the Catholic youn men and there should be coun cils like those In the Falls Cities In every Catholic community in the country. Many fall to realize tbe In fluence they wield or the many who have been saved to church and coun- ry by membership. RECENT DEATHS.

G., writing for the Little Rock Southern Guard- W editor, and patron, of the paper- issued by the Guardians of Bigotry I. the Indifference of Catholics to ward their ebullition.. Some years ago an agent for a new fangled faiiu The lies which the A. P. A; papers tell about the Catholic church need no reply. They do no harm to the church. Persecution always bene fitted a good cause and always brought the persecutors to a down fall. These papers go so far that they disgust even the Intelligent and respectable opponents of the cburch. They indulge In a vulgar abuse that would cause them to be forbidden the use of the malls if the attention ot the Postal authorities were called t0 tneir actions. The Sheridan 'Headlight, published at Sheridan. school can not be erected In Grant county, or It erected shall be burned down. The Messrs. Adams of the Headlight will not permit Catholics to worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience There shall be no tolerance ot Cath olics so far as they have power to prevent It. Copies of their paper are being sent to Colorado, Nebraska and other places where Catholic Immi grants were discussing the circulars sent out by land agents of Grant and other counties. Is it reasonable to suppose' that any worthy Catholic Immigrants will come to a place where their religious principles are outraged and perhaps their Uvea placed In Jeopardy? This Is a serious matter and should be treated In a serious manner. This la why I atated in a former article that the communities in which these vile papers are published should not be made responsible for their wild ravings unless it was clearly evident that the business men of the community actually endorsed the papers. It was suggested that a committee ot the Knights of Colum- bua and the German State Vereln be appointed to investigate tbe matter and report their findings. I am cer tain that It would be a pleasure to be able to announce that the busi ness men of Grant county. Ark., take no stock in the unjust attack upon the Catholic religion and Cathollo institutions. But priests are con stantly receiving lettera from pros pective Catholic capitalists and Immi grants about lands and suitable placea for settlement, and In every instance are demanded tbe advan tages of a Catholic church and school. Under present circumstances all that a priest can do about in quiries In respect to Grant county is to forward a copy of the Sheridan Headlight. . HAPPILY WEDDED. Miss Blanche Beaucond, of Lafay ette township, and William J. Mar tin, of New Albany, were married by tbe Rev. Father JoBeph Sermersheim at St. Mary's-ot-the-Knobe cburch Tuesday morning.
