Charley Knight and Ben Schul , man Prove Ileal Stake Runners. LOOKS GOOD TO DEMOCRATS LOST Over 75 per cent, of the Progressive rote. Finder please re turn to the Louisville Herald and no questions asked. The above want advertisement exemplifies the feeling of the Her-ald-Progresslvo party since their miserable showing In last Saturday'c primary, only 1,737 votes being cast out of a registrred vote of over 8,000, in addition to the very fow which they allowed Capt. Relchert to secure, and this after a daily fan cied effort of the Herald to arouso enthusiasm and a much advertised meeting at the Masonic Theater, when the Progressive voters were Implored to gather at the polls on Saturday and arouso enthusiasm for Aston. But arousing enthusiasm and Interest for Axton for Mayor is a far cry from cheering Roosevelt, the Rough Rider, and consequently the hopes of the Herald and the Pro gressive machine died aborning. Here's a tip watch the ex-Democrats and ex-Republicans try to sneak back into their former par ties, now that hope for office or position with the Herald-Progressive party Is gone. Prom a Democratic standpoint the primary was all that could be desired, the losers saying that the best men won and that they are ready to take off their coats and work for the ticket, this applying in every instance with the exception of the case of Jailer John R. Pflanz, who at present Is pursuing a mis guided course and Is not listening to the advice of -his real friends. Looking at the matter from a disin terested standpoint, Mr. Foster was really stronger than was conceded by the Pflans forces, this being evidenced by the fact that Pflanz beat Foster only 456 votes In the entire county outside of Louisville, where there was no semblance of the fraud now being alleged. Then again. If Holley and Greene were opposed by the machine, as Pflanz's daily organ, the Herald, has stated, he had the same opportunity to de feat the so-called machine as Messrs. Holley and Greene. The Kentucky trish American holds no brief for Colonels John and Jim Whallen, but oolleves that Jailer Pflani again pursues the wrong course in abusing them for his defeat, as' everyone versed in local politics knows that the Whallen brothers havo support ed Pflani in all his twenty-five years of political life, and they do not deserve censure if they, like many other citizens, preferred choice in the recent primary. The opinion Is heard on all sides that the Jailer Is making a grievous mis take in enlisting under the Herald banner in its attempt to wreck the Democratic party, which has hon ored him so often, and this paper, In common with his many friends, hopes be can be dissuaded from his present course. . The glad hand Is beiug extended on all sides to Charles H. Knight tor his victory in the Senatorial race in spite of the efforts of the unscrupulous circulators of lorged and lying attacks on his union prin ciples, his majority being satisfying and decisive despite the under handed methods. Will Holley de serves much credit ' for hit victory over a large field of competitors, also Sam Greene in his race for County Judge. John J. Barry's protege, George Bchlegel, won hands down for County Assessor, his clos est competitor being Sheriff i.l Eraler.- In spite of many uncalled for criticisms Russell Gaines cap tured the nomination for Surveyor handily. Ben Schulman ran away from his opponent in the Sixth Magisterial district, winning by over S00 votes, but this fact Is not sur prising to Ben's many friends, who predict him a coming power in East End Pemocratlo politics. It will take the official count to entirely settle the Councllmanlo races in which there were contests. Fred lleffernan, one of the losers, prin cipally through being In last plai on the ballot, has already declared himself heartily for the ticket, which example others migM emulate. Dr. Buschemeyer for Mayor, Scott Bullitt for County At'ornT, Harry Robinson for Police Court Prosocutor, Edward O'Connor for Bailiff, Andrew M. Sea for Tax Re ceiver, William H. Meffert for City Auditor, Charley Cronan for Sheriff, and Pres Ray for County Clerk, 1 received a large complimentary vote. A great amount of Mr. Ray' strength can be attributed to a couple of his girl deputies, who ar splendid organizers with a large following of voters. In tnct, they art stronger politician than many of the men deputies about the Court House. Everything presages great vic tory for the Democrats in November, the pretest clean up In the Pos'- offlce and Custom House will make the party all the stronger In Novem ber. The strictly partisan element that has been In power so Ion at Fourth and Chestnut will be elimin ated as factors, and their former high-handed methods absent this coming fall. Henry Cassln, one of the few Democrats who bas been there for years, has been removed as Commissioner to make way for Judge DuRelle's assistant, John P. Has well, In spite of the rumors that Cassln was regardod so highly by bis Republican associates, but It now looks that they threw him out In the cold to make room for one of their own particular kind. GOD'S CAM After an illness of long duration, borne with perfect resignation, God called to her tteraal reward Sunday morning one of his most faithful servants in the person of Mrs. Mary A'. Geher, beloved wife of Frank A. Geher, of the firm of Geher A Son and Commissioner of the Sinking Fund. Mrs. Geher was ever a home loving woman, gifted with keen in tellect and strong Individuality, possessing in extraordinary measure the qualities that set her price "far above rubles." It was given to her to Influence for good all who en joyed her acquaintance, and her death comes as a personal loss to hundreds beyond the confines of her home and near kin. Born 1n this city forty-seven years ago, and graduated from the Girls' High School as Mary Weyd, she was mar ried to Frank A. Geher, a man also endowed with the sense of honor, sturdy honesty and etrong, reverent Christian spirit that were marked charaoteristics of his bride. Mrs. Oeher was an Incessant charity worker and was Corresponding Sec retary of the St. Anthony Scwln Society for a number of years, be sides being closely Identified with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd. St. Joseph's Orphan Home and tfco St. Boniface church. Besides her husband she Is survived by her mother, Mrp. Mary Weyd, and throe sisters, Mrs. P. J. Mattingly, Mrs. Emma Mattingly and Mlss Rosa Weyd. The funeral service was held Wednesday morning with solemn high mass of requiem- at St. Boniface church, and was the larp est seen there for years. From ell sides come expressions of sympathy for the bereaved husband. KNIGHTS AT BOSTON. The greatest and moat successful convention in the history of the Knights of Columbus was held in Boston this week.- Three thousand Knights assembled at high mass in the Cathedral of the Holy Cross Tuesday morning, when Bishop Anderson, of Boston, read a cable gram from Cardinal Merry del Val, coaveylng the felicitations of Pope Plus X. The regular convention proceedings were later formally opened on board a harbor steamer while the delegates sailed from the north shore. Mayor Fitzgerald and 6tate Deputy Louis Watson wel comed them and Supreme Knight James A. Flaherty, of Philadelphia, responded. The growth of the order since the 1912 convention was re lated by the Supreme Secretary, William McGinley, of New Haven, Conn., who reported that on June 30 last the total membership wis 302,074. made up of 98,783 insur ance and 203,291 associate mem bers, in fifty-two States and three territorial Jurisdictions and 1,630 subordinate councils. During the year forty-seven new councils were Instituted and the net increase in membership was 19,326. Outstand ing Insurance aggregated $103,669. tOiO, and death benefits during ths year totalod $77i,000. Few changes were made In the laws of the order, and Supreme Knight Flaherty and the other officers were elected for another term. ENCOURAGED. The Catholic Woman's Club has received great encouragement and renewed zeal for the work In behalf of the working girls of Ixuisvllle from the warm response which their publication of the tenth anniversary review has mot. This presentation of the great problem of the working girl, the danger of th city which threaten them and the necessity for an active apostolate in the'r behalf, by Dan Walsh, Jr., has opened the eyes of many of our Catholic peo ple who before took little or ho In terest in the club's work. The la dies are pleased at the notice which lha book has received all over the country, but they are particularly gratified to know that many Louis ville people have seen the duty of getting behind the club and making possible the reaching of many more needy girls. A very practical expres sion of Interest in the work was received last i week. It was a $10 bill received In a lotter, whose writer remains unknown. - The let ter was short, however, for all that was found Inside, besides the money, was a card bearing these words, "From a friend." MOLDElt BADLY BURNED. John F. McBarron, a well known resident of New Albany and prom inent In Catholic circles, who Is em ployed as a molder at the plant of the New Albany Manufacturing Com pany, was caught In a shower of molten metal on Friday of last neek and badly burned about the head, neck, shoulders, back and left arm and leg. The unfortunate man was engaged In filling a mold for a heavy casting when from some unknown cause there was an explosion which threw the molten metal high in the air. Medical assistance was at once summoned and tha Injured man re moved to his home, S20 East Fifth street. While his burns were pain ful they were not dungerous, but they will confine hint to his home for another week. MADDENED Liberals and Irish Defeat Tory Plot to End the Present Ministry. Foil Scheme In Heuse of Com mons For Another Snap Division. Majorjty Iteady When Oppo nents Rush In and Attack V Miscarries. V ORANGE HOES AGAIN BLASTED This last week, cables Hon, T. P. O'Connor, M. P., from London, has been full of exciting and dramatic Incidents. The most exciting and dramatic of these incidents of course was the tremendous preparation of the Tories for a snap division and th? triumphant defeat of this perilous and skillful maneuver by the com bined forces of the Liberals and the Irish. Never in the history of this Parliament have the Tories shown such resource, such party loyalty and party skill. They accounted for every member of their party except five, and they conducted the debate which was to end In a snap division with laborious dullness. Their benches remained empty, and their men did not make an appearance In the House of Commons until a few seconds before the fateful division. Even after their arrival in the house the ambuscade was concealed by their men hiding themselves in por tions of the Parliament buildings where they could not be seen, five taking refuge in one of the bath rooms of the House of Commons. But somehow or other Information of the coming coup reached the Irish some hours before, and assured of the coming victory, the Irish mem bers could not refrain from publicly exulting. Many of them left the House of Commons, watched the Ion"g streams of motor cabs which brought up the Tories and recelvod them with Jeering cheers. It was an IrlBh member also who discovered the five Tories who had concealed themselves in the bathroom. ' The division took place amid a scene of tenest excitement and when the majority of the home rulers was announced there was a cyclone of cheers from the Liberal and the Irish benches, and there' was a lively ex change of epithets not always com plimentary between the Irish and Tories, which at one time threatened trouble. Nearly all the Orangemen returned from Ulster to take rart In what was hoped to be a defeat of the Ministry and home rule and It Is rumored that Carson had remained awake' in a hotel in Belfast to receive the news of this Joyful relief and to announce It to the Orangemen. Mad dened by such a victory the London Tory papers attribute the victory to Irish vigilance to an exaggerated de gree and publish fantastic stories such as that the Irish party employs a large number of detectives to traco all the movements of the Tory mem bers. Some Irishmen fooled these gullible 'English Tories to the too of their bent and gravely declared they are now employing female as well as made detectives. Needless to say there is no truth to these wild stories, but it is true that the Irish men are attending Parliament with extraordinary fidelity and serve as a splendid example to all other sec tolns of Ministerial supporters by their loyalty, determination and self tacriflce Meantime that broadening of the political issue which came with Lord Lansdowne's and Lord Curzon's ar rogant speeches in tho House of Lords when It was rejecting the Irish bill is broadening more every day. Englishmen now realize that at this moment English and Irish liberties equally are imperiled by those in solent claims of the still untaught and unteachable House of Lords. Already it Is evident that an im pulse was given by these events for a fierce campaign against any fur ther toleration of existence of the House of Lords. This growing movement only required one potent voice to give it direction and force. Lloyd-George gave this direction and force by visiting his constituency and delivering the greatest speech of his life. The speech has put the fuse to the powder magazine. Its recogni tion as epochmaklng is universal, and was indicated by loud cheers when Lloyd-George came back to - -the House of Commons the next day. Since Us delivery the Liberals and the Irish are holding their heads higher than at any moment for years. The struggle now bas def initely moved from a simple fight to carry home rule Into one great lino of battle, the English as well as the Irish agalnBt the Ho'ne of Lords. In addition to the advantage of unltinr the two great democracies for a ccm mon obejet, this new movement means a united and fierce reply to the House of Lords' rejection of home rule next year and to Carson's campaign of bluff, religious blgotrv and civil war. It has been a splendid week. DEMOCRATS KECHEATIXG.

Itight to Warn People Againnt an Evil That Is Working Harm. Has Not Heen Properly Pre sented to Non-Catholic Public. WHAT GHATHOLICS ARE TAUGHT "There Is no need of my Issuing a formal regulation; regarding the immoral dances now in vogue," said the Right Rev. Denis O'Donaghue, D. D.; Bishop of 'Louisville, Wednes day night to one of the dally prerc reporters when shown a dispatch stating that Archbishop Moellor, of Cincinnati, and Btahop Byrne, of Naehvilla had- torbHMcn prleets to absolve persons who engaged In these objectionable dances. ' "Almighty God, and not Bishops, forbade immorality and all other sin, and every Catholic knows ' full well that every sin of Impurity, whether it be of deed) or look or thought, is against the law of God. What else do they need? These dances, the tango, the turkey trot, the bunny-hug and all the rest of them are immoral and every Gath olic who dances them knows . that he Is committing a mortal sin, trampling the law of God beneath foot, liabling himself to eternal damnation and giving bad example to those outside the church. What need therefore is there for me to condemn them when God Almighty bas forbidden them along with all sin and everything that leads to sin? "There often are mistakes In the way In which these things are given out," continued the Bishop. "As I have said before, the plain fact in the case is that any immoral dance or anything else that cauces a man or woman to forfeit wha' Jesus Christ purchased by the shed ding of his precious blood Is a mor tal sin. That is all there is to it and every child In our parochial schools knows what that means. "Now it 1s all right to warn the people against an evil that Is doing harm at a certain time, as these dances now are, but to say that a person who sins by dancing them can not be forgiven is simply not true. Murder aud theft and lust and every other sin can be forgiven, and will be forgiven, If the person Is penitent; that is, It he is truly sorry for the sin, purposes to amend bis life and to avoid the occasion of his fall from the grace of God. In the present case It would mean that one who had sinned by dancing these immoral dances would have to quit dancing them, else his repent ance Is not sincere. In this case the confession and the absolution and the whole thing Is void, but it does not require a Bishop or a priest to tell our people this. They learn it as soon as they learn their a b c's. "If a formal condemnation of these dances were needed, why most assuredly I would have to condemn them and I do condemn - them. Turkey trotting and horse trottlnj and pig trotting are all right for turkeys and horses and pigs, but they are not the things for men and romen, and especially for those who have been redeemed by the blood o? Christ, and who know the law of God, as Catholics do. The Catholic who has to be told this is a poor Catholic, if one at all. Ho needs to study his catechism, that's all. God help him. "I believe that the whole trouble In this matter la that It has not been properly presented to the non Cat hollo public by certain news papers. I hope, however, that it now is clear.".

Xew Catholic Building In Louisville. Impressive Ceremonies Marked Cornerstone Laying Last Sunday. Vicar General Cronin Officiates! Assisted by Many Local Priests. FATHER CONSTANTINE PASTOR Another event that will make Cath olic history in Louisville was wit nessed by an Immense and Interested gathering Sunday afternoon, when the cornerstone of St. Peter Claver'i church school and social center on Lampion street, between Hancock and Jackson, was laid with splendid and Impressive ceremony by the Very Rev. James P. Cronin, Vicar General of the diocese of Louisville, assisted by twelve priests. Father Cronin offi ciated In the absence of the Right Rev. Denis O'Donaghue, Bishop of Louisville, who was out of the city. The new building will cost $6,600. About half this amount has been relsed by the negro Catholics them selves. It will be a two-story struc ture of stone and brick. The base ment will be devoted to club rooms and a domestic science department for negro girls. On .the first floor will br two large and airy classrooms, so constructed as to be available for so ciety meetings. The entire seco.nc floor will consist of a hall for meet ings, lectures, entertainments and moving picture shows. This tall also will be used as a gymnasium and training school for negro boys, and an a praotlce room for the St. Peter Claver's colored band. It Is expected that the new building will be com pleted In the late fall or winter and will be the first real social center for negroes in the city. Rev Alexander WlUberdlng, O. F. M., pastor of St. Joseph's church, preached the sermon, saying In pant: Catholics from all over the city are here to Join with you, their col ored brethren, in rejoicing at this In dication of the progress our holy re ligion is making among the colored people of Louisville. Such a sight can not be .witnessed outside the Cath olic church, for she Is the only church that knows no bar of class or color. She alone puts into practice the Fatherhood of God and the brother hood of man. IBlack and white, rich and poor, learned and Ignorant all are equal at her. altar, all are her children, to all she Is a mother. Much has been said about the Catholic church opposing education. We shall pass this over of course, , because it Is said only by those of no education themselves. She is the mother of tha arts and the sciences and of liter ature; she saved the learning of Greece and of Rome; more men of science, of discovery, of art, of liter ature have been her. children than all other denominations combined. Where else can you go for such names as Thomas Aquinas, Albertus Magnus, Christopher Columbus, Lavoisier, Ampere, Venerable Bede, Guido of Arrezzo, Jerome, Galvanl, Mendel, Pasteur, Marconi, Wassman and countless others? Beside the church you will ever see the schoolhousw. How fitting is it. then, that the col ored hoys and girls of this parish should have an up-to-date place where, they may learn , not only mathematics and reading and writing, the mysteries of science, the delights of muscular development and such manual training as will fit them to become home builders, but as well the beginning of all wisdom, fear of the Lord, the great lesson of right living and of right acting toward their fel low men. As our Holy Father has o often pointed out, we build In vain If we erect the most magnlftoent churches and neglect the school room. A church without a school will soon mean an empty church. Again ( say that the Catholic people of Louisville stand with you and will do their part In aiding you In the noble work which already you have borne so well toward completion. Much credit is due tor this success to your sealous pastor. It la a happy thing for the colored people that they have as shepherd and a father a mem ber of that great order which still hows forth the spirit of the gentle Balnt Francis, the lover of mankind, the very founder of all the social service movements of . this age, the Man of Assist, whose life and whose deeds have already lately awakened a wondrous admiration even among those outside the Catholic church. Truly has be been called 'Everybody's Saint Francis.' " The work of organizing St.' Peter Claver's congregation was begun about six years ago with a donation of $6,000 made by Mother Kathertne Drexel, daughter of the Eastern millionaire, who upon her entrance Into the Catholic church became a nun and founded the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament for work among the Indians and negroes of the United States. The present church and school are modent wood structures, but when the haodaotne new school is built the church will be moved on to an adjoining lot and later will be supplanted by a atone and brick edi fice. Tbe space In front of the school and at the side of the church then will be used both as a school and neighborhood playground, thus fur ther carrying out the social center Idea. The present pastor, the Rev. Father Constantlne Schaaf, O. F. M., of the Franciscan order, bas been pas tor of the church since its beginning. Father Constantino, In addition to be ing pastor of this church, is chaplain of the Jail and the City Hospital, and besides Is Interested In the work of the Juvenile Court and many other uplift movements. The following priests were present at the exercises: The Very Rev. James P. Cronin, V. O., the Rev. George W. Schubmann, D. D., the Rev. Charles P. Raffo, the Rev. Leonard Nurre, O. K. M., the Rev. Michael Melody, the Rev. Peter Baptist Englert, O. F. M., the Rev. William Gausepohl, the Rev. George Weiss, the Rev. Earl Wlllett, the Rev. A. Assent and the Rev. Ellglus Kunkel, O. F. M. Following the services Father Constantino en tertained his guests at an informal dinner. SAD EXD. Edward O'Mara, thirty-two years of age and residing at 517 North Seventeenth street, met with a sud den and unexpected death during the early hours of Tuesday morning, when he fell from a fifth-story win dow of the Stratton-Terstegge Com pany warehouse at Fifteenth and Lytle streets, where he was era ployed as night watchman. Monday ho aided his two brothers, with whom he lived, to move, and late at night complained that he was tired and suffering from loss of rest. He turned In his last signal at 1:55 in the morning, and his watch was stopped at 2:20 o'clock, at which time it Is thought the fall occurred. The body was found at 5 o'clock by a workman, who notified the police of the Fourth district: Cor oner Duncan was called and viewed the ibody, after which it was re moved to the undertaking establish ment of Thomas Keenan. O'Mara's skull was fractured, the ribs on bis left side were broken and he was otherwise mangled and bruised. This acclednt Is the second fatality that has befallen the O'Mara family this summer. On July 15 James O'Mara, a brother and a native cf Louisville, was killed-In Cincinnati while em ployed as driver of an Ice wagon. Two brothers, Thomas and William O'Mara, and four sisters, survive him. Undertaker Keenan removed the body to the home of his sister, Mrs. James Nasb, 1626 Rowan street, from where tha funeral took place Thursday morning with a sol emn mass of requiem at St. Pat rick's church.

TRAPPISTS Mourn In Silence Death f Klght Itev. Antolne Oger, Mit red Abbot. Huled Monastery of Our Lady of the Lake of Two Mountain's. Iluilt Stone Structure With Ills Own Hands and Cultivated Vast Acres. HIS WORK A GRAND MONUMENT Silent sadness broods over the Trappist Monastery of Our Lady of the Lake of Two Mountains, for the Right Rev. Dominus Antolne Oger, O. C. R., mitred Abbot of Oka, is ' dead. The- rigorous code of the Trapplsts forbids unnecessary speech, wherefor the brothers of the great Canadian monastery received the news with sealed lips and grieve silently for their Abbot. The Trap plsts are great agriculturists, and not the least of the reasons for the love bus brothers bore the Right Rev. An tolne Oger is the manner In which he, their ruler, always shared equally with them their labor. In tbe fields and orchards, In the vegetable gar dens, la the poultry farms, he worked with the strongest and he did his share in the cheese factories and the canning factories owned by the Trap plsts. He lived up to the letter and tbe spirit of the Trappist vows, which entail silence, poverty, bard labor and piety. Born at Jumelllere, France, in 1852, Antolne studied at the Little Seminary of Mongazon at Angers, after which he spent four years in the Grand Seminary. In 1877 he was' ordained a priest and was afterward named professor of science at the Col lage of Saumar. Four years later he left the secular clergy to enter the famous Trappist order, and for that purpose he retired to iBellefontalne and wag admitted by the Mitred Ab bot of the place. After bis two years of probation and after nicking vMs solemn proiession in tne oraer u was uaiueu uvvice mttsi'jr 10 iuq 1886 he was sent out co Canada .to establish not one but many monas teries throughout the Dominion. Five rearo before this foar- -Trapplsts had . &jen 'sent to Canada to establish a monastery near Oka. The place elected for that purpose was situated lu the district of Two Mountains, about thirty-four -miles from the city of Montreal and three miles from tbe Indian village of Oka. It was a dense wilderness, where wild animals roamed at will and few white men had entered it. He was named Prior or Superior of the monastery and set t work with an indomitable will, a rugged constitution and a strong heart to try to clear the land. It was no easy task to accomplish. With only a dozen members of the order he tolled continuously, felling trees, turning out stones and laying the foundations for buildings. Year after year the work pro gressed until a stone monastery was built and the Abbot of Betlefontalne visited the place. As the community bad increased to more than eighty members, it was necessary to elect an Abbot to rule the monks. Accord ingly the Abbots of Bellefontalne and Tracadle, Nova Scotia and the lead ing members of the community at Oka named the Right Rev. CDom. Anttolne Oger, O. C. R the first mitred Abbot of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Lake of Two Moun tains, Quebec. On July 23, 1902, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, a fire oc curred in the dormitory part of the monastery and before night the en tire building was in ruins. The Ab bot was absent at tbe time and on his return a sad sight greeted him.. All the property of the monks in the shape of clothes, books and other val uables was reduced to ashes. Dora. Antolne set to work and with monetary assistance from Catholics and non-Catholics in both Canada and the United States be was able to erect the present beautiful monastery. The Abbot leaves behind him veritable monuments to bis work In tbe shape of the industries he established anrt the farm lands he wrested from the forest. Of the two thousand acres of land owned by the Trapplsts at Oka fifteen hundred acres are under culti vation. They Include the finest ginseng gardens In Canada. When the Abbot learned that no hope was held out for 'bis recovery be asked that he be carried to the chapel to witness the ceremonies at tendant upon one of the major feasts over which he had presided for so many years. - His wish was carried out, and he was able to bless four new brothers, who then became members of tbe order. In accordance with the Trappist custom tbe Right Rev. Dom- Inus Antolne Oger was burled without a coffin and a simple white wooden cross marks his grave in the mon astery burying ground. VISITINQ PRIESTS. The Rev. Robert McDonald, pas tor of Holy Name church at Calvary, Marlon county, and the Rev. A. M. Zonller, of Holy Cross church in Marlon county, visited in the cltv last week while en route for a vaca tion at West Baden Springs, front where Father Zoeller goes to Mil waukee to attend the Catholic Fed eration convention.
