PRICE FIVE CENTS. TT T AME K SI SIGNIFICANT Wore Deliberations of National Catholic Kdueatlonal Convention. Strong Protest Against Any eroachment On tlie Itlght of Parents. Kn- itv of Text Hooks a Vlinvi. v Subject For Lengtly Debate. INSPIRED WORDS OF SISTER For Catholics the recent delibera tion of the national catnouc educa tional convention that body or eminent educators that Is the great clearing house for the best of Cath olic educational thought ronst be fraught with the most significant interest. Claiming no rights of authority to dictate hard and fast rules for anyone by reason of the ripe experience of Its members, the profound research of Its thlnke-s and speakers, the finality of Its de cisions are universally conceded by ihose alive to Catholic Interests. The association concluded Its ses sions by some telling resolutions. One of these was a strong protest against any encroachment on the rights of parents In the education of their children In liberty of educa tion. A vigorous protest was also launched against the Imparting of sexual knowledge to children, as at present carried on in many private and public schools of the country. A request was made to the Araeri- can Medical Association to Instruct Its medical council, in view of the spirit of antagonism shown by the Carnegie Foundation to hospitals under religious control (and there are 500 run by Catholics In tho Unitod States), to discontinue the services of the Carnegie Founda tion. Heartily favoring the highest standards of college education and approving every attempt to classify colleges, the college department deprecated the action of the Federal bureau In Its attempt to classify the colleges of the country in groups of A. B. and C. and stated that in do ing so he bureau had exceeded Its 'power. The parish school department in Us resolutions emphasized tho child's Inalienable right to a Chris tian education and fixed the place where the first early education of the child must be obtained in tho Christian home. Educational moth ods similar to those that have throttled enterprise in industry and created trusts were condemned. Pastors were ursed to warn and counsel their children in regard to modesty of dress, the excessive use of pleasure, the evils of the picture show and corrupt newspapers. Attention was called to the great waste in public funds and the evil of excessive taxation, the tendency on the part of the State to do f o; the citizen what he should do for himself. The State was urged to en courage her citizens in the care of tlbeir children, but was asked not to place too heavy burdens on those who already at great sacrifice are discharging the duties of parent hood. Thanks were returned to tho Holy Father for admitting the children at an early age to holy communion, and as Catholic teachers the depart ment bore testimony to the exeollent fruits of this practice. Religious vocations should be fostered by par ents, teachers and pastors: the avoidance of current secular litera ture was urged and the Cathollo church was shown to be in her tra ditions and experience tho great storehouse of educational theory and practice. The parish school department also made urgent recommendation for the same parish school advantages for the 5.010 deaf muto Catholic children that are enjoyad by normal children In the parochial schools, If their faith is to be guarded. Besides the very definite and tangible results of tho convention embodied in the resolutions drawn up and approved of by the general association and Its three important sections, the seminary, parish school and college departments, there were very wonderful indications of other advances in Catholic thought for in terests In the general trend of the papers and discussions. Free parochial schools and free text-books for the children of these schools wore the burdons of mir of the papers and llBCusslons, If the parochial system is to fairly com pete with the public school one. Largor efforts for tha establishment of Industrial and vocational schools were recognised as a need in the modern life of the Catholic American child. Uniformity of curriculum In parish schools was the basis of thought for able papers, and In the consummation of this much-to-be-desired result there was much healthy divergence of opinion, soms holding to the eight-hour grade, dementary course and a big tollow- Ing, led by the General Secretary, Pr. F. W. Howard, of Columbus, Ohio, favoring a six-grade ele mentary training. These were liarkfd by the entire college depart ment. Classification of secondary training was recommended bv this loader for division into four classes, namely, for those- who would enter the profusions ministry, law, medlcliit, journalism or education (he technical ones, like engineering agriculture, etc.; those who seek commercial and business pursuits, and the fourth class, who engage In manual labor and who are backward and deficient In their studies. Uniformity of text-books was one of the debatable questions consld tred. Most of the speakers held for more uniformity than Is known , at present; two put forth very a'jle arguments for complete uniformity; all agreed that uniformity In the catechism text la an absolute essen tial. One Sister of the Sacred Heart of New Orleans, like an Inspired prophetess, predicted that "Rome will speak on -the question of uni formity of text-books and that It will come." CHARLES WHITE. The death of Charles White, aged ninety, at Fairfield, Nelson county, on Monday, July 7, notwithstanding his age, is a distinct loss to Louis ville, where he had lived for three- quarters of a century. Born In Dublin, Ireland, Mr. White came to America seventy-nine years ago and settled In New Albany, where he remained un,tll about 1S56, when he came to Louisville. Having been trained as a carpenter he soon ob tained remunerative employment with Architect Whltestone, also a natlve.of Ireland, and was bis super intendent of building for a number of years. In the course of Ills career he built the Gait House and many of the fine mansions that -graced the city before the civil war. Afterward ho engaged In business for himself and for a number of years was a contracting builder under the firm name of Hughes & White. .During this time he bunt many large struc tures, and bis work Is a monument to him. About twenty years ago Mr.' iWhlte, 'having obtained a com petency, retired from business, and lived with his sister, Mrs. Cosgrove, a 1025 West Jefferson street. Two years ago he was Induced by his daughter, Mrs. James McKenna, to go to Fairfield, where he remained until death called him.. Charles White was one of the most estimable men that ever lived in Louisville. He was what might be termed an "Irish gentleman," end all who enjoyed his acquaintanceship knew this. He was a well-read man, but he was not demonstrative in any way. Modest to a fault, he gave ad vice to those who sought Vt, and he was often called upon to arbitrate differences. Because of the respect in which he was held his advice was heeded. Of his charities much might b- said, but those who were the re cipients of his bounty know best how to sneak of this feature of his char acter. He gave liberally to the Sis ters of the Good Shepherd, to the Sisters of Nazareth and to St. Pat rick's churdh, of which h was a member for half a century or more, aud certainly many of these wHI pray for the repose of his soul. , In early life Mr. White married Miss Clarke, who was a native of 'lelard. Her brother Is Joseph I. C. Clarke, former editor of the New York Sunday Herald, and at present connected with the publicity depart ment or the Standard OH Company. Mr. Clarke Is also author of several volumes of poetry and. wrote the stirring poem at the outbreak of the Spanish-American war . entitled "Kelly, Burke and 8hea." Mr. Clarke and Mr. White were Intimate friends all of their lives. Later In lfe Mr. White married again, and the surviving children are Mrs. James McKenna, of Fairfield; Miles white, of Butte, Mont., and James White, of Louisville. He also left several grandchildren. His second wife, who died ten years ago, was Margaret Campbell, half-slater of the late Patrick Bannon ani sister of Bernard J. Campbell, President of the Kentucky Wall Piaster Company The funeral of Mr. White took place from the Cathedral of the As sumption on Thursday morning and was largely attended. THE DAY FOR ATX. Rev. Thomas. York and tho men and women of St. Paul's parish have perfected arrangements for the greatest all-day picnlo ever held In this city, to be given at Phoenix Hill Park on Wednesday, July 23. The admission is only ten cents and the prir.es on the entrance tickets are handsome and valuable.

INSPIRING Wan tlie K nights of Columbus Fourth of July Celehra hrntion. Thousand Throng Central Park to See Scenes of '7tt Ite-Enacted. - Cheers and Applause Greeted Iflnglng of the Old Lib erty Hell. GLORIOUS DAY FOR LOUISVILLE The most patriotic and Inspiring B'ourth of July celebration ever wit nessed in Louisville or Kentucky was that held under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus, when 10,000 enthusiastic and highly pleased people witnessed the grand pageant and re-enactment of the Signing of the Declaration of Inde pendence. A brilliant assemblage was gathered beneath the treoa and on the hillside facing the stage, where the splendid spectacle of the nation's birth was enacted by fifty- six Knights dressed In velvet knickerbockers, silk blouses, pow dered wigs, silk stockings and silver-buckled shoes. The stage was a replica of tho assembly room In old Independence Hall, where the forefathers declared "this to be a free and independent nation." The furniture was of the Colonial type. and on the President's table stood the familiar ink horn and quill pen. The stago faced the hill, and the crowd was grouped about, much as In the days of Rome. Long before the performance began the park was alive with people. Capt. Hogan, of the First police district, with twelve olficars and patrolmen and several plain clothes men, was on hand to keep order. A medical corps was provided, but no accidents occurred. Tlie Choral Club, composed of 300 male and female voices, under the direction of Prof. Anthony Molengraft, was grouped on benches at the left of the stage. As delegates to the Continental Congress began to file into the hall theso 300 voices, blended Into the singing of "America." Thff -:;cntlro audience arose and stood with uncovered heads wbilo tho national anthem was sung. The young women of the chorus were dressed in white, and each waved an American flag during the singing. The pageant was car ried out In accordance with history. At 2:45 o'clock Col. P. H. Calla han, as President John lluncock, called the delegates to order After the roll call by Edward Kirwan, ns Secretary Thomas Heyward,. Jr., Thomas A. Bohan, as Richard Henry Lee, moved that the committee ap pointed to draw up the Declaration should make its report. The famous document was read by Camden Mc Atee, as Thomas Jefferson, and the long debate being eliminated, the Declaration waa adopted upon the motion of Louis A. Russell, 03 Lyman Mall. After the roll had been called and all of the delegates voted "aye" that the gauntlet should be thrown down to England aud the war for Independence be begun tin President gave the command that the glad news be spread. Tho part of the messenger, who eo dis tinguished himself on that first Fourth of July, was taken by George Francis Hardman, twelvo-year-old son of 3. Tt. Hardman. Ho, too, was dressed In Colonial costume. Jumping from the stage, he ran through the crowd, up to the hill to the pergola, where a reproduction of tho liberty bell hung as it occo did In the old tower, and plied the clapper while the crowd cheered and applauded. While the members wore signing the Declaration the chorus sang "Hall Columbia" and "Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean." The grand tableau, "America," closod the exer cises. With the 850 members of the chorus as a background, -Misses Mary F. Fitzgerald, Marie Bannon and Constance Cassllly formed the central figures. They were dressed in white, with red, white and blue sashes, and each wore a large American Beauty In her hair. As the audience and the trained singers united in singing "The Star Spangled Banner" the crowd seemed a sea of waving flags. From the hands of the three young women of the tableau fluttered large silken "Old Clones." The assembled dele gates stood at the front of the stage during this spectacle. Dr. Walker B. Gosett, Chairman of the committee appointed by the Sons of the Revolution to Judge tho essay's on the Declaration of Inde pendence was Introduced by Col. Callahan. Dr. Oossett announced that Miss Grace Elizabeth Watson waa the winner of the $10 prize, and also unexpectedly stated that the Sons of the American Revolution had awarded a second prise of $5 to W. J. Bryan "Welch for the nex hest composition. Miss Watson was fscorted to the platform and com plimented by Dr. Oosstt. Col Calla han and many of the Knights, while the crowd cheered loudly. Her es say then was read by Camden Ilo Atee. The committee which Judged the espsys was selected from annng Sons of the American Revolution upon the invitation of the Knight of Columbus. Besides Dr. Oioesett, George T. Wood, J. B. Hundley, I ncident of the Kentucky Society; Allen R- Carter, Ge-orre L. 1'an forth aid George H. Wilson served. COMING EVENTS.

Attempt to Draw Attention Prom Misfit Progressive , Nominee. HERALD'S IDEA OF CHARITY As predicted in the 'columns of the Kentucky Irish American, people cf all classes, reagrdless of- party affiliation, are disgusted with the yellow Journal tactics of the Louis ville Hera!d with Its daily scare- heads f imnginary burglaries and dope dream stories, minor the'tj magnified into wholosale robberies. one of their-latest being the story of how a big moving van backed up to a prominent residence on Broad way, while the bold burglars filled the vehicle with loot in broad day-i light and drove away. The whole thing would be amusing if it wasn't for the odium and bad name given the town, frightening possible buy ers and visitors away, but many are of the opinion that the out-of-town owners of tho Herald are not caring for the result to Louisville's business Interests and reputation and are only interested to the extent of sell ing their morning scare. The daily attempt to besmirch the good name o the whole police force and ad ministration simply because of the weaknesses or downfall of a few has resulted in an open boycott of the Herald ani its tactics and renewed confidence in the present splondid police department, from CoL (Lind sey and Milor Ridge down to the wagon guards. As an evidence of .the bitter malevolence of this Chicago owned sheet, twelve policemen summoned! in the Police Court the other morn ing were described as twelve bull necked policemen," while the dally and malicious attacks on Chairman Tierney, of the Board of PubUo Safety, are in retaliation for his statement that he "didn't ovr waste lime reading the Herald." Another phase of its attack was a sneer at Col. John Whallen'a charitable enterprises, the Just ar rived editorial- writer taking a fling at the winter commissary of winter before last, when thousands were clothed and fed by the Whallen brothers and their friends. The Herald gentlemen confronted, with a 11 ko situation, would probably fur nish the suffering and needy with a beautiful poem. The principal object of the Her ald's campaign against -tin police department is to furnish campaign 'bunder for the collection of down-and-out era, A. P, A.'s and castoffs from other parties that they have gathered together for November and labeled them the Progressive party, the caliber of many of them being anything but progreelve as their past records will show, tha religious fanatics in the uumber being mainly responsible for Loulsvlllo s slow progress, ihcrr attempted denial of religious liberty being one of the main causes why this city trails be hind Indianapolis and others of its size, and not because of the lack o' factories, as some of our commercial bodies tell us. All of the above will simply have the effort of the public turning en maise to the Democratic ticket i beaded by Dr. John H. Uiischemeyer Hiid the re-election of the present General Council, citizens iiml tax nayers alike being satisfied If they ran get a repetition of Mavor Head'! nusiness administration. Velvet aud tulle trimmed hat are being much worn in Parts. THREE LIES. ICditor of A. P. A. Organ Called For Deliberate Misrepre sentation. Itrann's Iconoelast Pours Hot Shot That Makes Menaee I alitor Wriggle. Conclusive Proof That Catholics Did Not Assassinate Our , Presidents. GUTTER PAPER PROVED LAIR C. A. WIndle, editor of Brann's Iconoclast, who Is a non-5athollc by the way, pays his respects to the Menace In the following and Inci dentally calls It on their recent as sertion that Presidents Lincoln, Gar field and McKlnley were assassinated by Catholics: The Menace, published In Aurora, Missouri, is a lying, malignant, Journalistic character-assassin con selved in prejudice, born of bigotry, Inspired by hatred, fed by fanaticism, fostered by Ignorance, upheld by de ception, encouraged by intolerance, fattened by fraud and brazen with in famy. Its columns are-rank with verbal rot, mingled with gall and reeking with festering lies. This slander besllmed, muck-filled, malodorous, malevolent, literary monstrosity Is edited by a .putrescent pin-head, known as "Rev." Teddy Walker, who is the most conspicuous example of atavism extant. He should have been born four hundred years ago. Why his advent was delayed, so as to project htm bodily Into the midst of this age of automobiles, fly ing machines, moving pictures and w Ireless telegraphy, surpasses human understanding. All we know Is that be is here, bringing with him the In tolerance of a Calvin, the conscience of a hyena, the zeal of a fanatic and the methods of a skunk. In the Menace, for June 7 I find the following, headed "Awful Rec ord:" "1865 President Abraham Lin coln murdered by J. Wilkes Booth, Catholic. "1881 President James A. Gar field ' assassinated - by Catholic, Charles Guiteau. - "1901 President William McKln ley assaslnated by Leon Czolgosz, Catholif." , If each allegation here made were true, It would not be Just to hold the Catholic church responsible for the ciiminal acts of some of Its bad mem bers. Methodists, Baptists, Presby terians and members of-all churches have committed murder, but nobody bnt an Idiot would think of con demning these churches on that ac count , The "Awful Record" here recited was not made by a single Catholic. The allegations of the Menace con tains three "awful lies," each blacker than the hingea of hell. As a matter of fact, Lincoln, Garfield and Mc Klnley were assassinated by Prot ectants, but a man wlho would base his objections to Protestantism on the crimson acta of these bad men ought to be tapped for the simples. Ex-Priest Chiniquy invented the canard about Lincoln's assassination being due to a Catholic conspiracy. He invented a lotof other fakes which he lncoroprated In his book. He also invented a beautiful scheme for ripping Protestants loose from their coin, to-alld homes for ex priests and nuns." He got the tdoney but the homes never materialized. Now and then ibe would buy. some cbeap shack and burn it down. He would then report that the "rascally Romanists had burned down his I' erne for priests," and hit the rlt on onother grafting expedition. When the Menace repeated his charge that J Wilkes Booth was a Catholic, )t gave currency to a villainous He, solely for, the purpose of arousing bitterness, suspicion and lhatred Hvalnst Catholics. Ever since that damnable lie crept from Chlniquy's (limy pen It baa wriggled and hissed Its hellish way through the homes i;rd brains of men, spitting its vile venom in the face or rnenasnip ana poisoning the springs of good will. The time has come to crush its head where it lies snugly coiled In the pages of tfce Menace. J. Wilkes Booth was the son or J Brunlus Booth, the great trage dian, who was an admirer of all religions, but not a professor of any. He was a prominent Mason and his ancestors were Jews. J. Wilkes Cooth was a brother of Edwin Booth, who waa a loyal Republican and cast his ballot in 1864 for Abraham Lin coln. J. Wilkes Booth was a South ern sympathizer and shot Lincoln to avenge the South. Ills act could not have been Inspired by Catholics. Re ligion bad nothing to do with It. The South, then as now, was strongly Protestant. For every Cathollo who fcught wtth Lee to destroy the Union, there were fifty fighting under Grant to save It. The logic of the situation, all known facts, forbid the condition that Lincoln died a re sult of a Cathollo conspiracy. Further repetition of the charge that J Wilkes Booth was a Cathollo should be taken is an evidence of wlllfu' perfidy. The charge that President Osrfieli' was assassinated by a Catholic I' equally false. Menace readers wh accepted that statement as true be 'leved a lie. Charles Guiteau, b iiurderer, was a Protectant, reared Iti the Oneida Community, near Oneida, N. Y. As a young man he was a member of this free love cult, but afterward was converted by Moody and became a Second Advent preacher and lecturer. He Wrote a book called "Truth," which was printed by the Blakely Printing Com pany or Chicago. Its pagea are filled with (half-baked rot about the mean. leg of prophesies and other visionary projects. He made a rambling speech for Garfield during the campaign and was "choked off" by the Na tional Committee, but conceived the idea that the President ought to make him Minister to Austria. When Garfield refused, he Imagined that the country was going straight to Dell. He claimed that God Inspired him to slay the President In order t ) save the republic. The menace he feared did not exist outside of his own disordered mind. In this respect he resembles Editor Walker. He was a far from being a Catholic as Is Walker, and. nearly as Idiotic. When In New York or Chicago, Guiteau made himself at home around the qtarters of the Y. M. C. A. See Alexander's Life and Trial of Guiteau. Readers of the Menace were also asked to believe that Loon Czolgosz who- assassinated President McKln ley, was a Catholic. Regardless of what his parents may have been. Czolgosz was an anarchist, despising an constituted authority, both secular and religious. His philosophy was the antithesis of Catholicism. Be fore he could become a disciple of Emma Goldman, Leon Czolgosz had to turn his back upon every tenet of the church and repudiate every prin ciple of the Christian religion. Anarchists are not only haters of government but they reject the God Idea. Tom Watson Is a better Cath olic than Leon Czolgosz, who assas sinated President McKlnley. ' BARLEf VF. POSTPONED.

The tragla and unexpected death of John Philip Curtin, the eighteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Cor nelius J. Curtin, brought sorrow to many hearts and desolation to the bereaved parents and relatives. With a number of his young frlendB he was swimming on Friday at the Louisville Boat Club. Young Curtla dived from the barge and as he came to the surface another swimmer dived and struck him full in the forehead. , Though severely shocked the unfortunate youth attached lit tle significance to the accident at the time and went to his office as usual Saturday morning Later he suffered severe pains In the head and wa obliged to see his physician, who found that he was suffering from a severe concuston of the brain and ordered him taken to St. Jo seph's Infirmary, where he died Monday evening. His funeral took place Wednesday mornln from the Church of St. Frances of Rome, of which he was a devout member. The solemn high mass of requiem was celebrated by the pastor, the Rev. Thomas White, and the sermon was preached by the Rev. Father Raffe, and was an affectionate tribute to one whom the reverend preached re garded most highly. The deceased youth wis a most popular young man, an ideal son and brother. To the father and mother and relatives so suddenly and so tragically bereft Is extended the sympathy of their many friends.

Hllnders Are Taken From Kyes of Thinking Knglish ' Votes. Carson's Trip Through England and Scotland an Absolute Failure. PROTESTANTS FAVOR HOME RULE The Marconi affair is dead and lUrlpri ft HpaiI fnrippfl that- .- nnt even the most persistent of Lord Northcliffe's sensational papers can make anv morn nolitlrnl rnnttAl mil. of it, but hast to worry through the smy season on a diet of sutrragetto news and Ulster revelations, cables an American correspondent from London. ThA Mnrnnnl rnnrinl tins however, done some good Inasfar aa it nas opened the eyes of all thinking English voters who by the way are not verv numerous to the vil of party politics, or as they are caned in America, machine politics. Ana never have English voters wit nessed such a dlsnlav nt hnra. faced hypocrisy in politics. mere is a growing demand among Liberals that the flnvorn to arrest Sir Edward Carson and place him on trial for high treason, a demand which has even found ex- -presslon in the House of Commons. In various papers cartoonists have denlcted the Gnvemmpnt In tha on of arresting suffragettes, but par- mi-cing "King" Carson and consorts to go free, eyen now that the former has onenlv hlirlprt rlnflonQ at ttia Government and challenged the laomec to nave mm put under arrest for Inciting the populace to arms. One of the rpnsnrm whv tha n.v. ernment has done nothing to clip the wings oi ineir not-neaded enemy, who proved such a valuable friend In his professional capacity in a lawsuit arising out. of the Marconi affair, is perhaps that the recent trip of Sir Edward through England , and Scotland to arouse the voters against home rule proved such- wi'" absolute failure, while another -lathe one I stated in my last cable letter, that no mnttpr hnw Orangemen of Ulster are to fight, Ihey will find -nobody on whom to use tneir more or loss wooden rifles. In the meantlmn tho afHtotlnn against home rule Is carried on in many forms all over England, though evidence is not lacking of the apathy of the voters in regard to this question. The conviction that England will nnnnor nr Wo have to transform herself into a number of . self-governing com munities with an imperial - Parlia ment at Westminster to (Wlrln nlv affairs of national interest is slowly gaming ground, and those who Bee In the granting of home rule to Ireland tho first Btep in this direc tion Will of course tin nothing tn delay a natural evolution. On the Tory side there Is an ab solute lack of arguments against those who hold such a view, as it would be an obvious folly to claim tnat it is detrimental to patriotism as long as the German empire and the United States nr plnn that citizens of a federated country are In every way as patriotic aa citizens of undivided countries. , The favorite argument against home rule for Ireland oHIl i-smoin that it is considered dangerous to me religious liberties and spiritual weirare or the Emerald Isle, that tha measure Is essential! mnlfar of religion and that its establish ment would mean the oppressive and Intolerant rule of the Roman Cath olic church, and that no guarantee has been given that Protestants will not be molested. But even this argument has lost its strength since a Protestant member of the House Of Commons Was elfvtftll h Vattnn. allst voters and since hundreds of Protestants in Ulster have declared publicly that they have absolutely no fears In this direction.
