Ne Haven and other surrounding points, hln a H van aa la freaueatlv the case. atirrine un much religious hatred .nH hlirntrv Ttnherts' first appear- at.ee was at New Haven, where in a house to house collection he obtained a little money from persons wno were under the Impression that they were contributing to the Salvation Army, his cap appearing the same as that worn by worners or inai organi zation, but on close Inspection it was found that it read "Independent Re ligious and Temperance Worker," vblch proves conclusively that Rob erts was a fakir, as there Is no or ganization of that name and the only truth In the label was the word "worker," as he worked several un suspecting persons and suckers for the benefit of his own pocket. Tem perance workers as a rule are In clined to water, but Roberta didn't seem to favor that plank In the tem perance platform, even from a toilet standpoint, as he appeared sadly In need of a bath. From New Haven this tramp A. P. A. evangelist journeyed to Hodgen vllle, where it seems ne discovered more fertile fields. In other words there were more easy marks or bigot In the latter place, and Judging from subsequent events It appears as If ttere were more bigots. In one of Us daily soap , box . . harangues, in which he was denouncing the Cath olics in general, saying that they were a disgrace to the American flag and that everyone of them had yellow streak up his back, attention of D. E. Rlney, a prominent citizen and Catholic, was called by a Prot estant gentleman coming Into his place of business and etatlng that "There la a fellow In front of your door denouncing all Catholics." Mr. Hinav sdred Into the crowd and after hearing a few of the derogatory re marks and Insults, grabbed Roberts by the back of the neck and, deliver ing a few well placed kicks, warned him to leave town. At this Juncture Rev. H. S. IBell, a Baptist minister of Lebanon, formerly of Buffalo, In terfered and took sides with Roberts and later on was .Instrumental In having warrants sworn out for Mr. Rlney and Lee Cundy, charging them with disturbance of public worship, and In a Police Court trial Rlney was fined f40 and costs and Cundy $15 and costs, both pleading guilty to the onarge. , The Larue County Herald, published "at Hodgenvllle, took sides with Roberts, the curbstone preacher, gainst Mr. Rlney, a substantial ti'stness man, the Herald stating that public sentiment was against Rlney very strong and that there was a movement In toot to punish the of fenders further. The sentiment of the Herald seems to be the favorite opinion of the majority of those In the settlement and It Is rumored an attempt Is being made to boycott Mr. RIney's place of business. Since the above the Rev. Bell en listed the services of the Menace. In a letter enclosing the names of seven subscribers Bell details the story of the Hodgenvllle episode, and to prejudice that filthy lying sheet In favor of the traveling A. P. A. orator stated that Rlney assaulted Roberts because of the latter's remarks In favor of the Menace. Bell also stated that Rlney was a Catholic of the bigoted type, which is amusing, coming from a man like Bell, who espouses the cause of a traveling feklr, whose sermons consist of bigotry and are delivered for the purpose of separating gullible bigots from their loose coin. From this angle it seems as If the sympathy of every fair minded citizen hould be with Mr. Rlney, regardless of the religious controversy Intro dared, and the fact that bigotry holds a chief place In the town of Hodgen vllle and that the majority favor abuse and vllllflcatlon of their fel low citizens and taxpayers explaius ti the public at large why Hodgen vllle has decreased in population from 125 in 1900 to 744 In the census of 1910. SUMMER SCHOOL. The remarkable actlvltv in all lines of summer school llf) which characterized the stay of His Ex cellency the Most ' Rev. John Romano, D. D., Apostolic Deleagte. rt Cliff Haven during the past week wns followed by a brief period of rest after bis departure,. This period was t token on Sunday eveuing by the annual summer school concert and thereafter through -the week a cou- tinuous programme of social events made bright the passing hours. T'je beautiful weather conditions which prevailed at Cliff Haven was an In centive to vacationists to take part In the more vigorous forms of out door life. The result was that many of the tournaments which had been postponed from earlier In thi season on account of the hot weather were played off. The ladles' golf tourna ment for the Conway challenge cu was won by Miss Margaret Thornton and the men's tennis doubles was won by Edward Welstead and Will lam Dougherty. The lecture courses during the week were conducted by Arthur F. J. Remy, Ph. D., of Columbia University, New York, th Rev. Daniel J. Carney, of Melrose, Mass., and Miss Eleanor Payex, p Brooklyn. CORNERSTONE LAYING. With beautifully Impressive cere- T.onles and in the presence of bun dreds of people the cornerstone of the addition to St. Joseph's parochial school, Adams and Washington streets, was laid Sunday afternoon by the Right Rev. .Bishop O'Donaghue, assisted by a number of the local clergy. The Rev. Alexander Wllber- dmg, pastor of St. Joseph's, acted as master of ceremonies, and the ser mon, "What the Parochial School Stands For," was delivered by the P.c-v. Constantino Sbaaf, pastor of SI Peter Claver s church. The exer cises began at 4 o'clock when the acolytes, priests and Bishop filed out ui the sacristy of the church and on t- the foundations of the school After the stone had been laid solemn benediction of the blessed sacrament was given In the church. Father WI1- berdlng then entertained Bishop OEonaghue and visiting priests at a dinner In the rectory. The new building, which is a wing of the old rerochial school, will have twoi stor let and a Jarge basement. It will be built of concrete, steel and brick and of fireproof construction, and will cost $18,000. CATHOLIC FEDERATION. The August meeting of the locnl Catholic Federation was well at tended despite the swelterin; weather that prevailed. President Gar.x not having returned from the national convention at Milwaukee. he chair was occupied by Vice Pros! dtnt David O'Connell. Attorney Benedict Elder made a brief state ment of the work of his special com mlttee and announced that the book lets treating on the evils of Socialism were readv for distribution. These rooks come in pets of six and each organization represented In the fed eration will receive a set to be read at their meetings. Upon the sugges tion of Attorney L. J. Mackey con sideration of the new by-laws wis deferred until the reports of th national convention were received. John Doyle, Patrick Weir and others gave expression to ' some excellent thoughts for the benefit of federa tion, after which Col H. A Vonder heidd delivered one of the best ad dresses yet heard on the subject of athdlic unity. There was a round of applause when a e'.egram ' was read announcing tre election of Rob ert T. Burke, of this city, nr CiMid President at the Atlantic Jurisdiction Y, M. I. convention at Pittsburgh. Several matters were referred to the September meeting, which will be an Important one. CHIRCH OP OUR L DY. One of the most Important ard enjoyable events to be held In Port land this season will be the monster fete champetre to be held on th giounds of the Church of Our Lady. Thirty-fifth and Rudd avenue, next Tuesday and Wednesday, both -afternoon and evening. The united socie ties of the parish are assisting the pastor. Rev.

Various amusements have been arranged for and the young ladles of tho parish will preside at the tables and serve refreshments. Tho Church of Our Lady has passid through three floods, but still re mains perfectly intact, and the pas tor and his people are eagarly look ing forward to meeting their friends on one of the two nights, when they will certainly be well treated rnd en tertained. CATHOLIC KNIGHTS' EXCURSION Under the auspices of the Centra Committee, Catholic Knights of America, there will bt an excursion over the Southern railway to Jasper, Ind., en Sunday, August SI, and '.: promises to be one of the largest that ever left this city. Ren Kruie and committees of the central body bave perfected every detail for a safe and pleasant dav, and Capt. Kuukel and the Catholics of Jasper promise a cordial reception for the excursionists. As a compliment to the Catholic Knights It Is expected that at least three Knights of St. John commanderles will make the trip. A feature will be the prizo baseball game between KrusVs High landers, all Irish, and Kunkel's Jasperlnes, all Germans, to be played on the Jasper College athletic field. This will be the last excursion of the season, and promises to surpass all others. The round trip tickets wl'.l te only f 1,50, children half fare. TAKE EASTERN TRIP.

NOBLE STAND Taken by llenorary President of the Catholic Women' League. The Feminist Movement Leaders Hold Views Decidedly Pagan. Orant Demands and Christian Family Would Cease to Kxlnt. THINGS WOMEN SHOULD REALIZE "The Feminist movement Is being promoted by women whose views are decidedly pagan. If their de mands were to be realized the Chris tian family would cease to exist and women's condition would lapse Inf paganism." The above is the opinion of Mrs. Joseph Frey, Honorary President of the Catholic Women's League, which was formed recently at Buffalo as a;i auxiliary to the German Roma". Catholic Central Verein. There Is no little probability that Mrs. Fry has observed accurately present day tendencies and stated frankly and truthfully her convictions about the character of the more prominent leaders In the widespread movement euphoniously styled the fuller emancipation of women. The ques tion, as to what is her- sphere In life, has no doubt been considerably obscured of late by the Insistent de mands of some of the sex for what they are pleased to be! 'eve 'are rights. Woman suffrage ! not tho cnly matter concerned In this move ment. We believe that this Is bound to come and rome t'me In the near future; as far as Catholics are con cerned, the church has ' Issued no definite pronouncement on this topic, and In places where the privilege of voting has been granted equally to both sexes members of the hierarchy have encouraged women to make use of the ballot. With reference, however, to some other subjects, and specially those that effect matri monial relations and social condi tions, all Christians, Irrespective of creed, should entertain tha same lews as does Mrs. Frey. Much of the degradation and de basement brought upon the most sacred of contracts Is dm In no small part to the Influence of tho- rreliglous and pagan Instincts and practices of woman without faith. These more than others have robbed matrimony of the character given it by our Blessed Lord and preserved for it by his church. If the slago and the street, the dance hall and the bathing beach, tho salon and tha school room present spectacles at times repulsive and Indecent, upon whom rests the blame? If conditions are more deplorable now- In certain quarters than they have ever been before In the memory of man, to whom are they attributable? If thero Is widespread criticism on the part of those who still retain a few shreds of decency, because nf carnality In song, dance and dress, who have been the chief offenders in creating the decidedly pagan state of affairs? Mrs. Frey's opinion seems to be sound and her conclusion that women's condition would lapse in'e paganism were the demands of tho promoters of the feminist movement realized is' well warranted by the experiences of the past few years. It would be well for Catholic woman- Itcod throughout the world to take to heart the statement of the Hon orary President of this newly formed league. It would be well aUo for (hem and othors to realize that It was not such agitation as is now go ing on for suffrage, nor such un bridled license In following the beut of passion or of pleasure as is current nowaday!, nor such utter disregard for decency, conventionality and pro priety .as Is observable In streets. dance halls and theaters, that raised the sex from the mire- in which it was wallowing In the garish days of utilitarian paganism to the higher state where It was placed by Chris tian virtue, Christian practice and a Christian church. FINERTY'S MONUMENT. The memory of Col. John F. Fin- erty, soldier-journalist, foremost mong Irish patriots of Chicago, was onored Saturday, when many thou sands of his compatriots gathered at Brand's Park and witnessed the un filing by' his daughter. Miss Vera Constance Finerty, of Charles J. Mulliagn's cast of a monument to the famous Irish-American National ist, which will be erected in a lead- n K park boulevard of Chicago. Col. Finerty was celebrated In modem rish-Amerlcan politics and had served aa Congressman during the (construction period following the civil war. Chicago admirers of Col. Finerty, Including the members of he Irish Fellowship Club and allUI societies with Celtic affiliations, had elected August 15, Lady dty, as the holiday event Is known in Ireland ud elsewhera throughout ths world. as the fitting date upon which to celebrate the anvelllug of the cast. hut Saturday was chosen u the most propitious date, as being practically half-holiday in Chicago. Col. Flnerty's activities In Chicago nd elsewhers throughout the Uniter" 8tates had long been recognized. He first came Into public notice In Clil- ago and the Middle West when he went West aa a war correspondent n the employ of ths Chicago Times, he having enjoyej the confidence of Wilbur F. Storey, the plctursoque editor of the Chicago Times, who em ployed mm toiiowisg nts term as a Congressman at Washington. Col Unerty followed , the campaign of Gen. Custer against Sitting Bull and wrote the story of the Indian's can ture by the Canadian mounted police near Maple creek, Bask. Returning to Chicago after the Indian uprisings vol. unerty resumed active Journal Isra and later edited the Citizen, the organ ot the Irish-American home rule forces. He enjoyed the friend ship of such men as Charles Stewart Parnell, John Dillon, Michael Davitt and contemporaneous characters who fought the battle for Irish liberty until Gladstone gave his powerful recognition to the ;ause. PARLIAMENT Knda Session With Mlnls.tr In a Stronger and 1 letter Position. Liberals Weather Storm of Mar conl Scandal and Ketaln Control. Itcnxons For Itefuxal to Exhibit - at Coming San FranciHco Exposition. POLITICS WILL BE GIVEN A REST Hon. T. P. O'Connor, M. P., re viewing the political situation In Eng- land, cables that the end of the Parliamentary session leaves the Lib eial Ministry In as strong a position as at the beginning, and much stronger than some weeks ago, There were some moments so awk ward during the cyclone of the Mar- cent scandal that even the most Bongulne supporters ot ihe Govern ment felt that the whole game was up and that some Indiscretions, how ever Innocent, were going to drag down a powerful Ministry and eev eial great measures. iDurlng this terrible time Lloyd-George, the most active and popular force In the Lib eral ranks, was paralyzed, silent and nervous, and grew dally thinner, paler and older, while the Liberals I" the country saw approach with ranlo the inevitable election with the equally inevitable defeat. This be- lug all passed away, "Lloyd-George, fi lly restored to health and popular ity, has already succeeded In work ing up the masses to feverish hope and expectations of new land leglsla. tion. This session ends In almost a note of triumph. For some weeks politics will be silent owing to the absence of all politicians, and even the diffi cult and outstanding problems of the Eastern question can not keep the Foreign 'Ministers and Ambassadors from taking a rest. This largely ac counts for a cessation even in Austria and Russia of the ardent campaign for a revision of the Bucharest treaty, and the treaty wins the resignation rather than the acceptance of all Europe, which Is so tired that It can rot work or quarrel any more. The action of the British Foreign Office In refusing representation at the San Francisco lExpositton Is re garded with mixed feelings, especially among the Liberals and the Irish. It Is quite true that the Impulse for s'.ich a refusal does not come from Panama, but from the unwillingness of British manufacturers to send goods such a long distance at such txpense and with what they claim are such problematical results. It appears that the desire to Increase trade by International exhibitions bug, rather died out In England. An other explanation of the attitude of English manufacturer! Is that trade I so extraordinary, brisk at this mo ment that they grudge any division of trine, energy or money to anything but filling their orders, many of tbem in great arrears. Finally a quarter of a million pounds sterling teemed large In comparison with the aum voted by 'Washington. There are real reasons from a pure bunslness point ot view and business men ap prove the attitude ot the Govern ment. But all the same men political hold that though business reasons thus can be offered tor the position of ths foreign Office, the sum ot quarter nf a million, though large, Is worth sacrificing rather than give the ap pearance that England Is sulking over Panama. The desire to avoid any such misunderstanding may sug gest some compromise later on, such ss a Governmental exhibit of produc tions ot the British empire, but such s project has not gone beyond mere iggestlon by unofficial Liberals as yet. MOTHER PROVINCIAL. At a chapter held week before last Bister M. Margaret, of St. Joseph's Convent, Utlea, N. Y., was chosen Mother Provincial of the Order of Franciscan Bistort in the United States and all the Islands In tha Pacific where the FrancW-ans are established. The election took placs li the mother hcuso in Syracuse. Mother M. Margaret will befcU'lonad In Syracuse for an indefinite period. Mother Margaret and , bar advisors are now considering the transfers to bo made and other business of the irder. During her term In office she will visit every school, convent nd hospital In charge of the Sister of her order. , VESTMENTS Worn During Sacrifice of the Mass and What They Signify. Church Han Retained Garments For Her Own Special Worship. Theyjteprewent Some Incident In Our Lord's Sacrificial Sufferings. ARE LOOKED UPON AS SACRED me (jouncii ot Trent informs us mat the vestments worn at mas rere Introduced by apostolic ordin ance and tradition. The Apostles, It seems, selected for this purpose tLe very best article of dress worn at the time by Roman civilians of rank. Thus, for example, our prsa er,t-day alb Is the festival tunic worn Ly civilians ot the Roman empire down to the fifth and sixth cen turies; the chasuble is the cloak wern at the same period on journeys or when walking. "When In the course of time ordinary attire underwent a complete change, the church retained these garments for her own sacred worship. They did not lose their original character, but became the distinctive dress of the servants ot the altar." And when these gar ments were once adopted for liturgi cal services, they were looked upon as sacred, assumed a meaning In ac cordance with their use, and were token to represent some Incident In cur Lord's sacrlflcal sufferings. The amice was orginally a cover- lug for the head and shoulders. It now represents the cloth with which the soldiers blindfolded Christ, while they mocked Him, saying: "Prophecy, ftho Is It that struck thee." The ayg, a tunic or Inner garment of linen, once worn by Jewish priests, and then by Christian priests from the earliest days. It represents the white garment In which King Herod and bis court mockingly clothed our Lord, treating Him as a fool. Its whiteness reminds the priest of the purity of conscience - which should adorn his life. The girdle, a linen or silken cord which gathers the alb at the waist, was at first worn to prevent the alb (hom trailing along the ground. It signifies chastity, and is now takem to represent the ropes with which ths soldiers bound Jesus In the garden, or the cords with which He was tied to the column for the scourging, or the ' whips with which He was kcourged. The maniple, a small silk ornament worn on the arm of the priest, was originally used as a handkerchief. Then it became a costly serviette tor presenting or receiving anything, ba ng folded over the left arm when It was not In actual use. In the twelfth century its use was restricted to the mass. It now calls to mind the cords ? lth which our Lord was bound. The stole was once a piece of fine linen worn round the neck and used hy persons of rank for wiping' the fi.ee, and spread by women at prayer over the head and shoulders, falling ound the body like a veil. The stole worn by ecclesiastics (from the fourth century at least) was bordered with streaks ot purple, and when In ucurse of time Its dimensions were contracted these ornaments were re tained as marks of honor, while the plain linen portions were cut away, so that It was reduced to a band which surrounded the neck snd fell down below the knees on both side the body." It represents the cross our Lord had to carry, and denotes the white robe of sanctifying graoe 1th which one must be clothed be fore acquiring Immortality. The chasuble was originally ths garment worn over the other clothes. We can trace Its use In the churob back to the beginning of the sixth century. It was then a very large vestment completely covering the body, with only an opening at the top for the head. In the eleventh oen- ury Its shape was altered, the sides elng opened to allow the priest greater freedom in the use of his ands. This beautiful form of the chasuble is known as the Gothic; it as the only shape In use from tho eventh to the sixteenth centuries. nd Is still used In many parts of urone. After the sixteenth century the chasuble was still further reduced i size and was opened at the sides. he chasuble represents the garments In which our Lord was clothed when He was derided as King of the Jews. The colors now recognized by ths onian liturgy are white, red, green, urple snd black, each with its own ynibollcal meaning. White Is the symbol of purity and oy, lignt and glory, wnite vest- ents are therefore appropriately ed on feasts of ths Blessed Trinity, f our Lord (when we are not directly commemora'ing his passion and death), of the angels, and of such Ints as were confessors of the faith, tirslns, penitents snd widows. It Is alto "ths natural color for all feasts vblch commemorate the sweet mem ory, of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the flower of. wondrous brightness, ths heavenly Illy of resplendent beauty, the spotless maiden." Red symbolizes fire, blood and the self-denial of suffering. Hence It I' i.Aed as the liturgical color for feast i' the Holy Ghost, the Ptsslon of Christ, the martyrs, Including 4h apostles (with ths exception of St , John, who Indeed suffered all the pangs of martyrdom, but whose chief glory Is the spotless purity that gained him the special friendship of Ms Master). Green, the color of nature In sr.rlng, is the fit symbol of hope, and a'.nce our hope of gaining eternal life I based On Christ's resurrection, ?reen Is the distinctive color of the hundays between Epiphany and Sc-ptuageslma, Pentecost and Advent, sn ten bave no special festive or sor rowful character. Purple In the eyes of the church is tne type or oenance. humllltv earnest prayer and intense sorrow Hence It Is prescribed for days of oenance. such ss Advent. Int Vln-ll. Rogation and Ember dav. for the sol emn hieasings on Candlemas day ASb Wednesday and Palm Rnnriav Black, the color of sorrow, though not of sorrow without hope. Is mor fittingly used on Good Friday and i.t offices for the dead. A. O. H. PICNIC. An unusually good reprosecution of the County Board delegates wa p-esent at the meeting of that Hiber nian body on Wednesday evening at uertrand Han, when final reports were beard from the d'fferi;t divis ions for tne reunion snd nlcnlc to be given at Phoenix Hill Park next Tuesday, and President William .T Connelly expressed his gratification at tne Interest being manifested Walter Cusick, on behalf ol Division 1, reported that they we-e hiving ( nice sale of tickets snd that ho and fresident Tbomas Tarpy had com pleted arrangements for hmdlinr of all liquid refreshments and cigars James Welsh, Dan O'Kcefe and John r.

The Ladles' Aux iliary have been rapidly selling their allotted amount of tickets and claim that they will outsell the member cf the four men's divisions, which is quite a boast, and judging from this a banner Hibernian crowd is ex pected to throng tho hall cn next Tuesday eevning, meeting old friends snd acquaintances. To quote a reg ular attendant at A. O. H. affairs, bo paid the following neat tribute: "It seems that everyone knows everyone else at Hibernian gather ings and that more sincere friendship Is witnessed than at any other like i-ffalr." Invitations have been ex tended to the city and county offi cials, many having already expressed their intention of being present,. In addition to many of the clergy. HEARTILY WELCOMKIX Rev. Francis Felten and Robert T. Burke, who were elected Grand Chaplain and Grand President of ths Y. M. I. Atlantic Jurisdiction at Pitts burgh last week; Dan J.

F..xDcmoCrat Now Interested In Political Reform Admin titration. Col. Callahan Now at the Head of McDermott Doom For Governor. PFLANZ AIDING PROGRESSIVES The local Progressives announced the appointment of their Executive Committee for the coming November election, and among the list were W. W. Davies, former Chairman of the Board of Public Safety under a Democratic administration; Laban Phelps, former Dmocrtlp sf Senator, and ex-Fire Chief Fllmore Tyson, who was connected with the fire department under Democratic r-lgn for twenty-seven years and four years under Republican rule. Th above list of ex-Democrats, with Scott Newman, ex-contractor under uemocratle reign, and Col. J. H. Haager, Police Chief under the same rule, are expected to direct and manage the Progressive camDaiarn. simply because they want to save the great common people and the cily of Louisville from Democratic rule, which has degenerated so much since they were pulled away from the pie counter, and It is a continual mystery to the above natrlotic gentlemen how the city machinery continues to go around and the tax payers prosper without their hand at Ihe helm. It is expected that the Herald will feature them In Its political articles aa fho Democrats who have been converted from the errors of their way and are now out for reform strictly, without any promise of office In case of Pro gressive success. Other aides to the Progressive -impaln will be fcx-Police Capt. Robnrt J. Foster. ex-Sergt. Sam Owens and several other "ex's" of less celebrltv. The Camden barbecue at Spring Hill the other day produced a couple or Gubernatorial booms, among, being Agricultural Commlssloji L Newman and our own Edward J. McDermott, who Is being groomed by Col. iP. H. Callahan, who It was rumored would conte the local Congressional nomination with Swagar Sherley next year, but will probably be at the head (f Gov. Mr Dermott's campaign committee. Al though practically a new-comar In the political game, Co. Callahan cut his eye teeth early and Is now fin ished politician, his campaign work In 1911 for th Democrntic State Icket attracting wlda attention. Judge Robert W. Bingham is also be ing mentioned 13 a possible candidate for the Democratic Congressional nomination next year. Gov. Mc Creary was also present at the big barbecue and is now busy pushing his candidacy for tho Senatorial nom ination, which will be the feature race la. next year's August primary, and the present Governor is endeav oring to form a winning combination early In the race. The Pflanz-Foster contest case Is till engrossing the attention of local politicians, and Judge Gordon's de cision in regard to the demurrer filed by Mr. Foster's attorneys is being awaited with Interest. In the meantime the Louisville Herald Is still advocating Mr. Pflanz's cause, hoping thereby to secure campaign material for the Frogrss!ve party, aa the Herald, In common with the Progressive leaders, realises that entirely too light to attract the at tention of the voters from any starn point. Mr. Pflans's latest card has further widened the breach between him and his former supporters, who can see nothing In his contest but an effort to Injure the Democratic party, wnicn nas ireaieu aim su kindly in the past, he having been the recipient of honors at 'he party's hand for the past twenty-one years, anil his plea for reform In elections comes a little late, especially at the outcome of bis first defeat in a party primary. The Kentucky Irlsli American, In common with other friends of Mr. Pflans, regrets his un wise step, and has heard H unanim ously commented that he Is making serious mistake la becoming an Uy of attempted wreckers ot the party. As stated previously, this was not the first election m wnicn be participated In :vh!ch thero were evidences of corruption, and it comes with bad grace at this par ticular time, LARDE.V PARTY AND Sl'PPEIL The ladies of St. Brlgid's parish will give a two days' garden party ext Tuesd-iy an-1 Wednesday on the hurch grounds, Hepburn and Baxter avenue.
