CREAGER'S BUSINESS SCHOOL Stctnd o4 Brecklnrldgt. WE DO PRINTING F1IST CUSS WORK. Give Thia Office Toir Next Order. ENTUCKY 1 RICAN VOLUME XXX. NO. 22. LOUISVILLE, SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1913 PRICE FIVE CENTS. K AME RISK HYPOCRITICAL Policy of the Evening Post Again Shown In Editorial of Thursday. Wily Editor Cunningly Spreads Screed of the Notorious Menace. Still Pursuing Tactics of Iloth End Against the Middle. REFORM BEGINS AT HOME On Thursday the readers of the Evening Post were treated to an other of It hypocritical outbreak when the attention of the many who are not reader of the A. P. A Menace were railed to the fact that this filthy little organ, published In Aurora, Mo., which the Post, In pre tended Ignorance, states Is "pub lished somewhere across the Missi sippl," contains a bitter attack on Judge Sam Poldrlck, of the Police Court, and the wily editor of the Post, with assumed Indignity and professed friendship for Judge Bold Tick, calls the attention of many that may not have seen the Menace to the attack on the Judge. For Simon pure hypocrisy attention Is railed to the following from Knott: "The Evening Post makes these cbservatlons without any considera tion of Judge Boldrlck's religion, which. Indeed, does not enter In any way Into the question. "It Is thus evident that this at tack from ar. outside and ill-advised quarter upon Judge Boldrlck carries no weight, nor will this community respond to any attack upon a man because of his religion." This has over been the policy of this hypocritical Journal. Posing an a friend to Catholics, it has ever been ready to grasp an opportunity, as In the above Incident, to stir re ligious prejudice in this community, and ignores the fact that reform, like charity, begins at home. As an example of this, last spring the Guardians of liberty, an A. P. A. organization, held a meeting here at the Scottish Rite Cathedral for the purpose of organizing a branch lo cally. The Evening Post published the only official notice In Its adver tising .column? of the meeting on May 22. of which there is a copy In this office, and one of the chief pro moters of that meeting, which was intended principally to arouse relig ious prejudice, was David B. 1. Rose, the circulation manager of the Post, and who became official head of the Guardians of Liberty In -Kentucky. Then this same sheet rails at the Kentucky Irish American, charging It with intolerance, principally be cause Knott and his hypocritical policy were unmasked, one column professing religious liberty and re form while another Is devoted to or ganizing a group of ignorants and midnight assassins. In an attempted rebuke of a criticism of Judge Bold rlck In the Kentucky Irish American, the Post further states: "The Kentucky Irish American Is just as intolerant. Just as abusive at the outside paper that attacks Judge Boldrlck. Some months ago the Evening Post had occasion to com mend Judge Boldrlck for his ex cellent work In .protecting the negroes In Louisville from police brutality and his course in citing before the Board of Safety all police men he believed to have been brutal to negroes. The Irish American made this the text of an attack upon Judge Boldrlck and the Evening Post, and, if we could understand Its logic correctly, made the point that any Democrat commended for acting Justlv to negroes deserved to be watched by his fellow Democrats." The Kentucky Irish American's criticism of Judge Boldrlck was not an attack as construed by the Post, but an honest opinion from personal observation and the expressions o' competent police officials in regard to the trials of negro offenders, and while the Post inconsistently states that Judge Boldrlck has made mis takes it grudgingly refuses to allow anyone elae that latitude.

PHASES Itevealed by Attempts to Control Local Public Library ltiilldings. Outdoor Art League Endorses Movement For Woman Suffrage. Open Sessions Have Encouraged People to Take More Interest. HOLDING POLITICAL MEEITNGS A further development In the use of our public buildings by various organizations for political purposes referred to in last week's Kentucky Irish American, took place on Thurs. day, the 2 2d Inst, when the Outdoor Art League at a meeting held in the art room of the Free Public Library went on record as endorsing the movement for woman suffrage. This is one of the clubs that de manded of the Library Trustees two weeks ago the exclusive use of the old Polytechnic room on the second floor that Is about to be vacated. The reason attention Is called to this meeting Is simply to show the pub lic who par for all this fun the nature of the meetings that are be ing held In our library buildings, and to point out the studied effort that I betng made for getting .possession of them by these women's organiza tions. In order to get a clear Idea of what the ladies composing the Outdoor Art League did at this meeting an extract quotation will be made of what was Bald, as reported in their organ, the Herald: "If we are to present a petition to the next Legislature asking for full suffrage," said the principal speaker on the motion, "I think it is impor tant that no doubt be left in the minds of the Representatives as to the number of women who etand be hind itthls petition. It would there tore seem the part of wisdom to en dorse this principle as a club." It will be noted that the object of this movement is to present a pe tition to the next. Legislature asking for full suffrage.' It was thle prin ciple... ttftt,.ibe, cluhimjorsed .bx,Jt. vote in at consisted or all yeas and no nays. After the ladles have thus placed themselves on record! we hardly think theywlll deny they are In politics," and they must there fore now plead guilty to the charge we made against them'that they are holding political meetings In build ings erected for library purposes. This Is what we charged last week n calling attention to the action of the Highland Civic League in en dorsing a candidate for the Judge ship of the County Court. Another phase of this subject that will soon reveal Itself is a movement to place women on the Library (Board This is a matter that we happen to know has already been discussed by those who are advocates of woman suffrage, and lif these women's clubs ever secure possession of the Poly technic room the next step will be to get representation on the board. It may not be generally known that In creating the Kentucky Library Com mission the last Legislature was coaxed by a (bevy of charming look- ng lobbyists Into permitting the Federation of Women's Clubs to which these organizations we have nder criticism belong to name one Commissioner of the five composing the board. This privilege was in corporated In the bill that was passed, and a woman representative f the Federation of Women's Club today occupies a place on the com- iriisaion. The ladies now believe tbey should secure representation on the local Library Board. There are other changes, however, that are apt to be made in that body before this is brought about. So much dissatisfaction haa been felt with the course of the Library Board since Its organization that It Is ex pected steps will be taken at the next legislature to cut down the number ot Trustees from twelve to filve. It li true that aa now constituted the board U an Improvement on former ones, because Mayor Head has ap pointed business men instead of pro fessional men during the past two r three years, but a body of twelve Is still a burdensome absurdity when you come to consider the work they are called upon to perform, and there is a growing feeling that five men would be able to transact busi ness more satisfactorily and make fewer mistakes. Since the sessions ave been opened to-the public the people are taking more Interest In the management of the Institution, nd the officials are slowly realizing the fact that they must hold them selves accountable o public opinion for what they do or fall to do In he performance of their duty. COMMENCEMENT.

With crushing sadness came the announcement of the death on Wednesday morning of Mrs. Madeline Kustes, beloved wife of G. H. Kustes and mother of Miss Mar cella Kustes, at her home In High land Park. .Mrs. Kustes belonged to one of the most respected families In Jefferson county, and her death is sincerely regretted by a wide circle of friends. She had been the Presi dent of the Altar Society of St. Leo's church since the foundation of that parish, and to the writer Ftther Fitzgerald said It was given to her to influence for good all who en loved her acquaintance, and her death comes as a personal loss to hundreds beyond the confines of her home and near kin. Despite falling health M"-s. Kustes never com plained, and It was only shortly be fore her death that, on the urgent advice of her medical attendant, the took to her bed. All that a fond husband and devoted daughter could do was done to prolong her life, but without effect, and fortified by the last ritet of holy mother church, of which she was a devout member, she passed peacefully away. To her sor rowing husband and daughter the widest sympathy is extended. The funeral on Friday morning was con ducted by Father Fitzgerald and was largely attended, many coming long distances to show their respect for the bereaved famtly. REMARKABLE ANNIVERSARY.

Forty-eight years ago he took up hit residence and engaged in business at Eighth and Market streets, and there he has remained ever since. His children, Henry, Frank, Alovalus, Gustave and Ray mond Gottbrath, and Mrs. Elmer New comb, of Alexandria, lad., and Miss Marie Gottbrath, were all born In the house Mr. Gottbrath erected those many years ago but still occu pies.

TORIES Have Recovered - Their Spirits For First Time In Many Months. Their Big Majority In Newmar ket Did Not Surprise the Liberals. Carson and Ills Orange Follow lowers to Take Foolish Stand. RUMORED ASQUITH WILL RESIGN The cable news touching Irish af fairs and the home rule bill this week Is somewhat conflicting, but does not give cause for alarm. From London the Hon. T. P. O'Connor sends word that though the Parlia mentary vacation still lasts In Eng land, the week showed some politi cal exceitement. The Tories have recovered their spirits for the first time In many months on account of their big majority in the Newmarket election, and they now talk of the result as a death blow to the Gov ernment This is a ridiculous exag geration, for no Liberal was sur prised at the result. Sir Charles Rose, the former Liberal member, now a Tory, as a sportsman, million aire and father of two sons who died in the Boer war and who besides is of great personal popularity every where, was the only Tory who could win a seat in the heart of the sport ing country of England. One un pleasant fact only stands out from the election. Most of the Liberals thought the tide against the insur ance act had finally turned, but the Newmarket election was partly lost by the dislike of this act, and in Cheshire, where another by-election will be decided next week, the in surance act will act as a great hand! cap against the Liberals. Chancellor Lloyd-George remains calmly golfing In the country while all this storm thunders about his head. He is plan ning his next big campaign against landlordism. Another' correspondent, who ev idently favors the Tories, cables the story that Sin. Edward Carson is back In Ulster once more and is go- ing to devote himself exclusively to organizing his Orangemen support ers iM. tayencreaXXinal llgb,tagainst home rule. As a matter of fact there does not seem to be much work left for him to do if we are to believe the reports of the Con servative press, which state that Ulster has everything in order to prove its loyalty by violently oppos ing the law passed by Parliament and signed by the King. According to the Times Ulster Is even now a nation In arms. A correspondent recently described the military sig nal service which has been formed in Ulster, and says: "Signaling and dispatch conveying are parts of Ulster's military organi zation, which have been very highly developed indeed. Every signalman In the service can show a first-class army certificate. Stations have been established all over Ulster, and if the telegraph wires were cut tomor row Belfast and the other Important centers of organization in the north eastern counties could communicate Immediately by Morse code with the Unionist outposts at Londonderry and Ennibklllen The Ulster Signal ing and Dispatch Riding Corps pos sesses a hundred fully equipped sig nalers, the most modern equipment and wireless telegraph apparatus, with skilled operators." The correspondent states that tne Unionist clubs now number 332, with a membership of 110,000. Friends of home rule will read with regret that Premier Asquith is looking forward with pleasure to the not distant time when he shall be able to leave politics forever, prob ably to occupy the high office of Lord Chief Justice. Everybody Irre spective of party will feel sorry to see a man who Mr. Asqunns rare political gifts and unblemished reputation leaving the political arena. RECOVERING. Mrs. John Connell, fifty-five years old, and her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Jamea Connell. of 3522 West Wal nut street, who sustained serious in juries when the street caved in with them Saturday night at Thirty. fourth and Walnut, have been pro nounced out of danger and recover ing from the bruises receive 1 They were on their way to a street car when the ground under thein gave way, and U wai with some difficulty they were extricated from their per ilous poaltloi:. The accied.it Is said to be due to the negligence of men who made excavations at that p'int when laying pipes. The older woman, who was most serijusly hurt, is the wife of John Connell, Assistant Su perintendent of the Standarl Sani tary Manufacturing Company. TRINITY COUNCIL DOINGS. Trinity Council. Y. M.

Abortive Attempts of Illgots to Stir the Fires of Religious Hatred. Decent Men -of Every Shade of lteliglous Ilelief Despise Them. CATHOLICS ARE NOT OISTURBEC Rev. Father Peter Gannon, who edits the True Voice, expresses bet ter than we could our vlow nt ih. anti-Catholic agitators, which are nothing new In this country. These convulsions of bigotry recur period ically. But It Is noticeable that they are becoming weaker with each reoc currence. Compare for Instance the Know Nothing movement of the mid dle of the last century with the short-lived A. P A. agitation of the early nineties. Or again, compare that agitation with the present abortive attempt on the part of a few bigots to stir up the fires of relig ious hatred. The Krow Nothings numbered many men of national prominence and formed a political party, which gave several electoral votes to its candidate for the Presidency. The a. v. a. worked within the old political parties and never dared to enter the field as a distinct organi zation. It controlled, however, sev eral cities for a brief period, and was widely exploited by the press before it was borne to a dishonored grave. Those who belonged to it made haste to get away from the smell of the nasty thing. Still it clung to them, to their sorrow, and in spite or their protestations. The agencies that are now striving to create religious dissension are prac tically ignored by all except their own press and a few papers which openly denounce them when ap proached for space. They want no toriety for their agitation, and the greatest grievance they have is that they can't get it through the press roor oia Miles and Tom Watson are so thoroughly, discredited and, in consequence, ignored that they are n deepair. The dark-lain who circnlate the filthy Menar. r,-. t .i : -w- l . . . niuureu puoucauons are very lujc- ful to choose dark nights for their nefarious work. They are so ashamed of It that they dare not look their neighbor in the face. It shows that they recognize the foul ness or the campaign In which they are engaged. They know that de cent men of every shade of relig ious belief despise them and the lies they circulate by stealth. Is such a campaign, carried on by nameless cowards, going to injure us? We would be very weak Indeed could such methods disturb us. The vast majority of non-Catholics know us well enough to respect us and to contemn the Insane bigots who are wasting their money and their strength In the effort to start a campaign of proscription against Catholics. We should be sorry to believe that even one-hundredth part of them are deeelved by the Menace concoction of lies and bigotry. Let us not be disturbed by the brawlipg bigots. They have neither standing nor numbers, nor are these things ever likely to come to them. They re noisy and noisome but like certain little animals, they are otorious chiefly for the bad odor which they give to the atmosphere In which they live. HOME NEXT FRIDAY. Manager Jack Hayden's Colonels performed the Flnnegan act this week, being here Thursday and yes terday and off again for Columbus, where they play this afternoon the first of a four-game series with the Senators. From there they go to Toledo for three games, arriving ome next Friday to again meet the Columbus team tor three games. These seven games Inside of about a week will determine the relatives position of these pennant contend ers, as It is conceded all around the Association circuit that Louisville as the best team since 1909, and with a little strengthening in the pitching department will be In the neighborhood of first place when the leaves begin to fall. The consistent ittlng of the team Is most pleasing to fans, who realize that Minneapolis won three straight penuants on that feature alone HONORED POET'S MEMORY. The 134th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Moore, the famous Irish poet, was celebrated thl year in Washington with special exercises at the Corcoran Art Gallery on Wednes- ay afternoon. This gallery Is one of the most beautiful of its size in the world.
