PRICE FIVE CENTS. "MOT AMEPJCAN OZANAM. Ylncentlan Kellnlously Observe the Centenary of Their Pounder. Hlght Itev. Itlshop O'Donaghue Sm)h Pontlfclal Mh at Cathedral. Benedict Elder Tells Wonderful Career of the Apostle of Charity. MANY AT AFTERNOON MEETING In no city in this country wai there a more religious or sincere ob servance of the centenary of Fred eric Ozanam, the modern apostle of charity and founder of the St. Vin cent de Paul Society, than In "Louls vll.e last Sunday. Right Rev. Bishop O'Donaghue celebrated Pontifical high mass at tbe Cathedral, which was attended by the conferences of all the churches in the city, tbe mem bers receiving holy communion in a body. The numb?r of men present was exceedingly large when it is remembered that in several of tbe parishes the chtldren of many were making" their first communion, thua keeping a number away. In the afternoon there waa a large gathering in the Knights of Columbus Hall on Fourth avenue, where the general memorial meeting waa held. President J. J. Caffrey occupied the chair, Rev. Father Donahue, of the Cathedral, the Spiritual Director, offering the open ing prayer. As this was a special roeetlnr. the reading of conference reports was dispensed with, but President Caffrey enrolled a number of new members. In receiving them as Vincentlans he informed them that for their every act of charity there was a special Indulgence and that for members of this society there are many spiritual benefits. He waa highly gratified to announce that through the Bishop the society had received $1,000 from a generous donor whose name would be made known later. He would only say the gift was the bequest of a lady who died some, time ago, who was ac-ouainte-J with the work of the Par- .'uJaXXiil'niU Alii tli" JochI .ron- fernces. He hoped there were oih 'ers who would follow her good example. President Caffrey then Introduced Benedict Elder, the attorney, who for over an hour held ' his hearers spellbound as he told of the wonder ful career of Frederic Ozanam and tils stupendous activities in every thing that made for the Catholic cause and charity. His address . was Indeed appreciated and at its con clusion there was long continued applause. Mr. Elder said they were assembled to celebrate the centenary of one roan out of millions, who founded not a city or government, but loved God and his fellow man, 1 and todar Vlncentlans were gath-' ered everywhere throughout the world to draw a lesson and Inspira tion from his life and deeds. The speaker dwelt on the history of the Ozanam family for seven centuries before the birth of Frederic, which took place In Milan in 1813, while his father was succoring and serving a scourged city. Mr. Elder dwelt at length upon the early life of Ozanam and the conditions then existing when the powers of .hell were let loose in France. It was their founder who changed the atmosphere with a respect for Catholic truth and the beauty of tbe teachings of the church and Its eternal greatness. - Ozanam was educated for a lawyer, he said, and it was only that that prevented him from becoming a saint. Though the founder of this great society had achieved marked distinction In his public career be was always a loyal Vincentian and persevering in his faith, his sincerity compelling conviction. Therefore it was that they should perpetuate the lives of men like Ozanam for the good they have done and the help rendered, that made men purer and saved all for God. Father Deppen, Father Raffo, Father Francis O'Neill, O. P., and Father George Connor were called upon, and in short responses de- clared they were refreshed, edified and rejoiced with the scholarly and finished address of Mr. Elder, which marked the day as a memorable oc casion. They were encouraged with the spirit that permeated the day. Tbey were placing before the world th', true Ideal of Christian charity, and It was a Joyful thing to know that, the future will bring forth the full realization of their hopes. t'aher Donahue was the last ;eaker, and his every word wa siven the closest attention. He eu couraged the members and urged ibam to Dersevere In the work of ihoir society and Increase Its useful nets. Altogether this was a day that not a Vincentian present will ever forget.

Orangemen. mSs12X Had Manliness and Courage to Refuse to Mgn Itldlculoiis Covenant., Protestants Who See Nothing to Fear From Home ltule Increasing. TRUSTTHE1R FELLOW CATHOLICS The bigotry and Intolerance of the Ulster Orangemen Is well exemplified by the story of the Scotstown Pres byterian affair, as told by the Dun daik Democrat. It appears that the Presbyterian church at Scotstown, County Monoghan, has been served by a clerygman named Rev. John Patterson so far as we know a worthy minister of his church, and no man has ventured to say other wise. Some months ago one-half his congregation rose and left the Scots '.oivn Presbyterian church and went In a body to the Orange hall, where ever since these double dissenters have assembled every Sunday morn ing at the hour fixed for service in the church and held a service of their own, to which It appears most of the church congregation event ually came. It might be thought that the Rev. Patterson had com mitted some fearful crime, repu diated some Presbyterian doctrine, or in some way outraged the feel ings of his hearers. But no. The reverend gentleman's sole "crime" was that he had the manliness to re fuse to sign the notorious Orange covenant. We hear a lot of the Orangeman's profesed love for "civil and religious liberty." But here they deny to their own minister the right not even to assert political doctrines dif ferent from their, but to refrain from endorsing the implied outrage upon the feelings of his Catholic neigh bors contained in the covenant, or from pledging himself, against his conscience and his sense of right, to take up arms to resist home rule.' We know many Presbyterians, in- men, who are home rulers aB. their forefathers were. We know many more who see nothing to fear in home rule and rely upon the good sense 'of their Catholic fellow coun trymen, far more than . upon the safeguards contained in the bill, to protect them from any form of in justice, not to say persecution. We do not know even one who will as sert that he genuinely fears and such event. We have in mind the out spoken declaration of a Presbyterian clergyman at the time the cov enant now almost forgotten was being used to work up bogus Union ist sentiment in Ulster. That clergy man, not a home ruler, wrote to the Times that he and hundreds like him did not distrust their Catholic fellow countrymen, and were ashamed of th9 things said and done in the name of religion, "as they felt that the re ligion thus exhibited was not the ieligion that had made the men of Ulster what they had stood for in the past." The Rev. Patterson is entltlea to the approbation of every right-think ing man and every lover of Justice and of liberty. He has refused to disobey his conscience, to accuse his Catholic neighbors unjustly or to Join 1n the vain and foolish vapor- ings of civil war and bloodshed to which too many of his cloth allowed themselves to be persuaded no doubt against the better Judgment of most of them. Those members of his congregation who have taken such extraordinary means o punish btra for his manly and Christian stand have unwittingly done public decency a service by showing the In tolerant spirit of Orangemen and the true interpretation to be placed upon 'civil and religious liberty as under stood and desired by them. Rev. Patterson took part In the united UUter day service in Ballin- ode parish church, but when the time for signing the covenant arrived ne refused to do so. On the next Sun day by way of protest almost half of the congregation left when' he com menced the ordinary service in nis own cnurcn. Bince men pm-im services have been sonductedl each Sunday at the same flme as the church services by one of the elders of the congregation In Wattsbridge Oratige Hall. BENEFIT MUSICALE. Next Friday night a benefit musl cale will be given In the Clifton Thea ter, the proceeds of which will be for the benefit of St. Frances of Rome church, of which Rev. rather White Is pastor.

Mc.Dermott delivered a short talk on the merger ordinance which was recently ap proved by the General Council, and Pat O'Donnell delivered a few re marks on economy.

The Prize Court in connection with the euchre and lotto to be given next Thursday and Friday in the school hall at Thirteenth and Market streets, for the benefit of St. Patrick's newt parochial school, will open with the largest docket ever re corded In Louisville. ' For the pas month the ladies of the congregation have been preparing for this event and erery detail has been carefully arranged. Tickets are being sold at twenty-five cents, and with each Is a coupon that may be worth $1.50 in gold and gives the holder a standing In court. The prize court Is a new and novel method of entertainment and will be found very amusing.

Honors Stand Against IHvoree and Evils That Disgrace Ameriea. Its Presence F.uable All to Sleep With Feeling of Peace and Security. THE DEFENDER Of THE BIBLE In the Chicago Inter-Ocean of re cent date there appeared a sermon by Rev. Charles Bayard Mitchell, D. D., LL. D., who is said to be tbe moat widely known Methodist minis ter In the West, and Is pastor of St. James church. Chicaco. Anmnr other things Dr. Mitchell said: "I have long since come to that pojnt in my religious experience where I can not do other than love and respect any church which exalts the name of Jesus Christ. I think it is evidence of growth in grace when a Christian comes to love all the churches, and finds much to admire and like In denomination other than his own. I want to tell you this morning some of the things which I like in other churches. "In the first place, I like the Roman Catholic church because it stands so Immovably In Its allegiance to JeSUS Christ as vnrv C.nA V'nn. of Its leaders ever question the deity or Jesus. I also like It because it be lieves in the religious training of Its children, and at great sacrifice of time and money does it. I could wish that it would send its children to the public schools, while at the same time carrying on In Its churches the religious training upon which it rightly places so much emphasis. "I like It because it stands for the purity of the home life and the sanctity of the marrlaeg vow. Thank God for that church's strong and clear protest against the cheap di vorce mills which disgrace our American civilization. I honor that church for what it is doing In the building and maintenance of hos pitals and asylums. I honor it for its defense of the Bible, and am al most ready to condone, its futile battle against 'modern inm"""fn? tP u so tremendously In earnest to stem the tide of Godless materialism. ."I especially thank God for the stand that church taken In this lanA against anarchy on the one hand and an impossible socialism on the other. Y nen I think of the eeethfnir mn.an. of foreigners of a certain type in our cities, wtr.ch we Protestants never produced, and thus far at least have been unable to touch. I thAnk f!nt for a Christian church which does touch them .and exerts Its potent in fluence over thenf- from th wiii vagaries of the impracticable Social ist and also from the destructive tendencies of the wild-eyed anarchist. I go to sleen everv nlrht with firmer feeling of security because we have in this city the Roman Catholic church." KNIGHTS OF ST. JOHN. The several commanderies of the KnlghtB of St. John nt T.,lo.,m the strongest Catholic military so- rieiy in mis city, win have their twenty-eeventh annual Inspection and drill at Phoenix Hill Park next Monday night, to be followed by a recentinn rinncA Thta 1. olur.ua - r ......

Gaughan, a prominent attorney of Camden, Ark., and , a great admirer and staunch supporter of his fellow townsman, Judge Hays, for Governor, was one of the princi pal Bpeakers at the recent Knights of Columbus banquet given in Little Reck. Mr. Gaughan related many Interesting things, among which was the story of how a little act, trifling In itself, changed his whole career and the career of others and made of him, his mother, his brothers and his ' nine children all Catholics. "When I was a lad in my teens," said Mr. Gaughan, "my father had as his guests two distinguished gen tleiueu Whileiijese visting gentliP men and my father were enjoying a pleasant conversation I went out and gathered a basket full of tine, ripe peaches and gave them to my father and his guests. The peaches seemed to be greatly relished by the visitors and as they ate them they naturally thought of the giver, and this f.rompted one of them to say to my father: 'This Is a promising looking youngster. Why don't you send him to school?' My father answered their question by asking another: 'Where shall I send him?' Then one of the gentlemen spoke up and said: 'Send him where my friend and I went to school.' It was agreed that this should be done, and as a consequence I was sent to St. Joseph's, Bards- town, Ky., where I learned of the Catholic religion and became a Cath olic. I often think It was a lucky thing for me and my family that I gave those men a basket of peaches." NOTHING IV RUMORS. In reply to a question as to a rumor that the Irish Parliament could not return to the old Parlia ment House In College Green, John Redmond said: "You may be quite certain that there is nothing what ever in these rumors. You may be sure that the universal sentiment In Ireland would insist on the Parlia ment going back there. It Is said that the building Is not quite con venient for modern parliamentary use. Even if it were not, the ties of memory and tradition would be too strong to be broken. No Irishman would dream of having his Parlia ment anywhere else." SPAGHETTI STPPER. The ladies of St. Charles Borromeo congregation will serve a spaghetti supper for their friends Monday evening from 5 to 8 o'clock In St. Charles Hall, Twenty-seventh and Chestnut streets, which promises to be a treat for those who partake of It.

Candidates are giveti sixty days from today in which . to secure signatures, all petitions hav ing to be filed by July 2, and are subject to inspection by candidate., the County Attorney and the Com monwealth Attorney. The candidates for the county offices in order to secure the neces sary 3 per cent., which is the lnw. lumber required by law, will have to secure 733 names, and the candi dates for the city offices will have to secure 622 signers, that Is the can didates who are running In the city at large. Those candidates in a dis trict, snch as Legislative candidates, will have to secure a small propor tion of signers; for instance the Forty-fifth district candidate will only need to secure about fifty-four signers: the Fortx-sIxth district can didate about 140; the Forty-seventh district candidate about seventy eight; the Forts-eighth district can didate about seventy; the Forty ninth district candidate about fifty four, the Fiftieth district oifly twenty, this being the Tenth ward, a Republican stronghold; the Fifty first district candidate about 210, this being the Eleventh and Twelfth ward. V. ... Ml. . " . W - . ..fell are based on the Democratic end Ill Knnn.li i. 1 1 rt I II W li I .111 iPPMH the primary, the only interest thus far being exhibited from that party, tbe Interest of the Progressives and Republicans being centered on the fight between the Herald and the Post as to a probable Fusion ticket, the wily Editor Knott becoming more frantic dally as he realizes there Is no chance for him or his organ to tag into either party. On the other hand the Herald, despairing of re viving the fast dying Progressive party. Is now agitating the suffra gette question with the hope of securing this fad element to. boost the Progressive cause. As predicted in these columns several months ago. Dr. John II. Buschemeyer will have no opposition for the Democratic nomination nnd very little in November. ' Judging from the present outlook we expect some of the Republican or Progres sive brethren to rise and offer a mo tion to make his election unanimous. Our other best bet, Scott Bullitt, has fulfilled our predictions and will have no opposition for che nomina tion for County Attorney to succeed himself, although many of the boys iu the trenches had hoped to see him aspire higher, his personal pop ularity enabling him to secure their united support at all times. Charlie Cronan is another with no opposition In his race for the Sheriff's nomina tion, and wttli men of this caliber the Democrats need not fear- the ultimate outcome, as the ticket chosen by the Democratic voters iu the primary can surely be called the people's choice.
