CREAGER'S BUSINESS SCHOOL Second aid Breckinridge. 'WE DO PRINTING FIRST CUSS WORK. (Siva Thia'offii Yomr Next Order. ENTUOCY VOLUME XXXI. NO. 13. LOUISVILLE, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1913. PRICE FIVE CENTS. I IMS I IMHUCAN CAMPAIGN Opening of Denux-rats Marks Flnlnli of Misfit Progressive Ticket. Largest Attendance Present tn History of Local Cam paign. Itiisclienieyer Throws Ilomb In Camp of Hull Moose Ag gregation, i IMAGER AND TYSON'S BOOBS If there was any doubt about the success of the local Democrat ticket in the coming November election that doubt wai dispelled by the magnificent crowd that wai present at the oepnlng rally In Hopkins' Theater Wednesday night, the at tendance being the largest in the history of local campaigns, about 3,000 people being crowded In the theater and over that number being on the outside at an overflow meet ing, many returning home on ac count of not being able to get near either the outside or Inside speak ers. Stirring and splendid ad dresses were made by Lieut. Gov. McDermott, Judge Henry S. Barker, Gen. W. B. Haldeman, Mayor W. O. Head, Judge Samuel Greene and Dr. John H. Buschemeyer on the In side, and Joseph Huffaker, Sam Robertson, Charles Mllliken, Will O'Connor and others on the outside. Enthusiasm was rampant and many are predicting a regular landslide for the entire ticket on election day. The feature of the evening was the expose of the aggregation com prising the Progressive ticket by Dr. Buschemeyer, and who, as charged in these columns before, were hiding their weaknesses behind the folds of the Herald, which has been preach ing civic reform and neglecting to give the public a line on their pro posed saviors . of the , people. Dr. Buschemeyer said in part, speaking of the comparison of the Democratic and Progressive tickets: Against Gen. John B. Castleman, Louis 8eelbach and D. F. Murphy, Democratic nominees for the Park Board, the Axton-Vance machine has put .up Phil Laib anavowed Proht; bitionist, and Lee Bernheim, a whisky distiller. For the General Council they have nominated Benjamin Hirsch. a blender of the Bernheim distillery, and Theodore Dlehl, a beer driver for the Schlitx Brewing Company, who distributes beer throughout the red-light district. And who is coupled with them as a running mate for the Council? None other than our old friend, Charles B. Nordeman, the General Secretary of the Anti-Saloon League. Here is a letterhead of the league and the city directory which bear out my state ments. Think of the spectacle of an Anti-Saloon Leaguer, a distillery blender and a beer wagon driver oc cupying adjoining desks in the Coun cil and shouting in chorus for re form. For the Legislature they have nominated B. W. Elliott, a Prohibi tionist preacher, and Edward Volz, a bartender in Herman Ohmann's saloon. What. a sight it would be for the good people from the rural districts of Kentucky to see these two legislators from Louisville trolling arm in arm through the State Capitol at Frankfort. Elliott carrying a Bible and Volx carrying a bottle.- . For County Clerk Charlie Hess was the choice of the Axton-Vance machine. This is the same Hess who, you remember, got Into such a row while in Mayor Grlnstead's Board of Aldermen tn regard to a diamond ring which Contractor Lee Figg gave him. The Democratic nominee for County Clerk Is P. S. Ray. Which is the product of a "machine" and which the choice of , the people? For Magistrate we find on the Axton-Vance ticket Charles K. Jack . son, a policeman who was discharged for drinking and loitering in a bar room, who is now a Janitor at on of Alton's headquarters. For the Legislature they have nominated Dr. Sebastian, whom Axton choked and threw on a bed 1 rr a fight over who disclosed the secret "anti-negro" rule of the Axton party. Going a little further compare Will Holley, Democratic nominee for Police Court Clerk, with Albert Elsenmenger, the Axton-Vance nom inee. Compare Andrew M. Sea, the well known Confederate veteran and nominee for City Tax Receiver, with (. A. Miller, the Axton-Vanre nom inee. Compare William H. Meffert. Democratic nominee for City Aud itor, with A. H. Remmet, of the Axton-Vance ticket for the same of fice. Think of comparing Judge Bold rlrk with that Axton-Vance leader, an aHplrant for the Police Court bench, William Holbourn. Compare Adolph Schuiltt for City Treasurer with Will Pell. And last, but not leaBt, compare Samuel W. Greene, Democratic nom inee for County Judge, with Mate Holt, who has now uiau peace with Axton. and the lion and the lamb now lie down together. Tell 'me which l the machine ticket? The Democratic ticket of Meffert and Greene, of llohirlck. Sea and Jim Camp, chosen by 16,009 voters participating at the Demo cratic primary, or the slate made tip of Hess and Axton, Steffey and Vols and Diehl, In a little room lighted with a dark lantern, presided over by Burton Vance and "Bud" Ross, and guarded by ex-pollcemen Andy Miller. Sam Owens, "Mart" Donohue and. "Bill" Smoot? Will you vote to allow such In struments as these to control the city government of Louisville? Who are the men back of Mr, Axton? Who are running his or ganization? I propose to tell you some of the most notorious of them now. Here are other men whom Burton Vance says "put principle before office!" Here are his "In struments" of reform! Do you think they would be working for Axton and Vance unless they had been promised "office" In return for "principle?" In the First ward there Is Dr. Hugh McCullough, one time Cor oner. He wanted to be Coroner again, but because Dr. Ellis Duncan got the Democratic nomination. Dr. McCullough has joined the Axton- Vance machine and is now managing their campaign In the First ward. He expects to be Health Officer in place of Dr. W. Ed Grant, if Axton should ever be Mayor. Imagine the reforms Dr. McCullough would in augurate in the Health Office! There' are ex-pollcemen "Dick" Murray, Andy Miller and Sam Owens, Mel LaPallle, Phil Boro, Jim Gorley, Martin Donohue and Bill Smoot. They are wotltlng night and day for Mr. Axton, and make his headquarters their headquarters. Sam Owens Is slated for Chief of Police and Donohue for Chief of Detectives and Andy Miller for Police Captain. The others expect to be made Captains or Lieutenants, of Police at the hands of Mr. Axton. Dr. Buschemeyer might have added that the above list of sup porters, who are being led around by the nose 1n the custody o( Jake Haager and Fllmore Tyson, would do well to watch their leaders, who at any moment may give them the double-cross as in the ' 1909 cam paign, when these two attempted to sacrifice Grinstead and Ills followers on the eve of that election and who are now laughing in their sleeves at the "boobs" who are following them blindly and who may be left in the lurch whenever Messrs. Haager and Tyson see an opportunity to benefit themselves. GREAT EDITOR CALLED. Patrick Ford, editor of the New York Irish World, died Tuesday ut his home in Brooklyn. For a genera tion he had supported with speech and pen Irlsn opposition to English rule, organizing in 1879, and the few years following, some 2,500 branche-of th-tan -League to the Treasurer of which in Ireland he forwarded half a million dollars through his paper. Patrick Ford was born in Ireland in 1837 and emigrated nine years later to Amer ica, entering journalism in Boston in 1855. He served In the civil war, afterward settling in Charleston, S. C, where he founded the Charleston Gazette. Several years later he Is sued the first copy of the Irish World. He was a cloBe friend of James G. Blaine, whom he supported for the Presidency. Editor Ford had established a great newspaper and was honored and respected for his honor and Integrity. His death leaves a void in Irish-American Jour nalism that will be long felt.

EX-PRIEST CROWLEY. Junior Order Arranging to llring Noiorins Disturber to Louisville in Aid of the Progressive Campaign. Axton FoIowers Paving Way For a Repetition of the Disgraceful and Infamous llloody Monday. - SKETCH OF The local dark lantern society, the Junior Order of United Ameri can Mechanics, which comprises all the leaders and 90 per cent, of tho candidates on the Progressive ticket, have been endeavoring to bring ex-Priest Crowley here to lec ture, principally as an aid to Axtrt.i and the Bull Moose ticket, it being rumored that W. W. Daviess, one' of the leaders, has been absent - from the city for the purpose of nego tiating with Crowley. .The Junior Order, which is Wood Axton's and the Progressive ticket's advance agent, Is attempting to secure Macauley's Theater for the lecture, thereby hoping to arouse religious prejudice against Catholics. On account of the storm of indignation and protest from all fair-minded citizens this past week, the Louis ville Herald attempted to pave the way for these lnlters of mobs and disorder to cancel the lecture, al though the Herald editor and other Progressive leaders have been urg ing the above class of fanatics to renewed hatred against Catholics for the sole purpose of promoting Axton's hopeless campaign for Mayor. If Axton was the caliber of man. as claimed by his organ, he would Issue a statement denouncing the attempts of his followers to promote another Bloody Monday. This ex-Priest Crowley has been denied a hall or theater 1n many cities because of his vile, abusive lectures, and in several towns a here he was permitted to siieak his Incendiary remarks were the cause of riots, In New Lexington, Ohio, the militia being called out to quell the disturbances. In every Instance the Junior Order of United American Mechanics has promoted the Crow ley lectures, and only recently-- committee from 'this order was turnpd down by the Protestant city officials at Charlotte, N. C, after an attempt had been made to secure a public building under the guise of what the Juniors termed was an educational lecture. Here they will probably designate this traveling disturber's subject as an Axton lec ture and distribute Bull Moose lit erature and Axton pictures, as Is now done at their meetings. A word as to Crowley, whom they are en deavoring to. inflict on the citizens of Louisville: The saddest of all things is the sight of a fallen priest a priest who has stumbled from the altar Into the gutter. But when the fallen one remains In the gutter and slings mud at the church that edu cated him, then ,one instinctively thinks of Judas selling his Master for money. Poor fallen Crowley! He has gone the limit and hooked himself to the infamous Menace, thus bringing down upon himself the - scorn of all self-respecting Americans, irrespective of creed affiliation. Crowley is after the coin and as his dastardly attempt at blackmailing failed him he now turns to the polecat of the American press. We are indebted to Father Neil, of Indiana, for the following pen-picture of the fallen priest: TRINITY'S MEETING. Trinity Council. Y. M. I.', had a largely attended meeting Monday evening, at which a resolution was passed denouncing the present day methods and st'iohi dances as th 'tango," "lame duck," "turkey trot" and others of similar character. In addition to regular routine work leveral applications were received. The- Membership Committee an nounced that they hoped to have a Urge chans for the coming Joint initia tion, for which Trinity recently ap pointed a committee to confer with Mackln and Unity. Andrew Kleffer, who has been ill in St. Louis, sent a communication stating that he -bud fully recovered, thereby leaving only one member on the sick list. ,The Literary Committee Informed the council that a programme was being arranged for the fall meetings, which would Include a number of lecture and debates. The Euchre Committee reported that they were making good progress for the euchre and lotto party to take' place early tn Novem ber GOXK TO RENT. Mrs. Mary Dillon, an aged and bighly - esteemed woman, widow of Col. Patrick llrtilon, a former City Varshal of Louisville, and mother of former Fire Chtof Ben Dillon, who was killed In an accident while en route o a fire nearly lour years ago, succumbed Monday evening at her borne, 2115 Cherokee parkway, fol lowing au tlliujHS of two weeks, She was a native of IiulsvUle' and was formerly Mitts Mary Real. .She Is sur vived by a son, Patrick Dillon; a daughter, MWs Mamie Dillon, auJ four grandv'hlldreu. The funeral was i THE LATEST JUDAS ISCARIOT. Jeremiah Crowley was born in County Cork, Ireland, November 20, 1861; pursued a course of studies for the priesthood and was ordained in Ireland, June, 1886. Toward the end of the 'same year he came to the United States and was aligned a place as assistant in the city of Manchester, New Hampshire, where he remained sixteen months, then returned to Ireland. Soon after, he was imprisoned for seven months in Cork. Our charity will suppose that he was unjustly Jailed. In 1896 Crowley returned to the United States and was given a charge by Archbishop Feehan, of Chicago. For nearly three years he was assistant at the Church of the Nativity, then transferred to the parish at Oregon, 111. He was here less than two years, when his con nection with the Chicago diocese ceased. He was in this country less than five years, not long enough to become incardinated in the diocese even if the Archbishop Intended to keep him, yet he would write "a full and authentic history of the sad condition of the Catholic church In the Archdiocese of Chi cago" (Crowley's own words). " Knowing the motive which prompted Crowley to rebel and to wield the muck-rake, and knowing that his contemplated action would result in no good, but in great harm to souls, whom it would scan dalize, his ecclesiastical superior warned him, under threat of ex communication, against carrying it out. Crowley remained obstinate, and was formally excommunicated. Later this ban was lifted, but Arch bishop Feehan refused to allow htm to work In the , Chicago diocese, both because he was not a subject of the diocese because. ,.pf. tho scandal which he had given. After leaving Chicago Crowley married a woman of Schuyler, Neb. She was not a Catholic. He lived with this woman in Seattle. While in the West he engaged in the real estate business arid also was . a floor walker In a department store. He attended a Protestant church during his sojourn In the WeBt. Crowley has published two books; the first (1905) entitled; "The Parochial School, a Curse to the Church, a Menace to the Nation;'1 the other was issued quite recently (1912) and is called "Romanism, a Menace to the Nation." In the first production Crowley pretends to deal with the Archdiocese of Chicago only, whilst in the latter volume he incorporates the first book, and then recounts all the evils .which preju diced writers have ever blamed the church for. Only one effect Crow ley's book can have, and that is to make the' bigoted more bigoted. The man who knows, a little about the Catholic church would be In clined to distrust the whole work because of its evident exaggera tions, because it says too much, be cause every charge is expressed in the superlative. ' Crowley contends that he is no, an "excommunicated or unfrocked priest," and makes much capital out conducted Thursday morning trom the Cathedral of the Assumption, of which she had been a life-long devout n ember. t'OYIXGTOX. Sunday afternoon following th psrade of the Catholic societies and many rommanderles of the Knights of St. John a large concourse of peo ple witnessed the corneratone laying ot the new St. Augustine church, Howell avenue and Nineteenth streets, Covington. The building wtl! cost between $75,00 and $100,000, the interior being of Italian renais sance design, constructed of rough red rake brick, with terra cotta trimmings, copiier cornices and rose windows. The Interior will be Ro rranesque, with mosaic. arches, ele- i vated floor, vestibule and aisles laid in tiling. There will be three altars, middle and two side altars, and the church will seat about 1,000 persons. Right Rev. Bishop C. P. Maes offici ated at the laying of the cornerstone und was atltd by the clergy of Covington. Hie also delivered a ser mon In English, and Rev. Father William Bleed one In German. Prof, l.lfert and choir, of the St. Aloyslu (hurch, rendered musical i pro gramme. An eieclally prepared parchment was placed In the corner stone, on which was Inscribed a rec ord of the event and the names of the church and governemnt author ities. AKHLAXD. TIms Rev. Father Goesliu, pastor of the Holy Family church at Ash land, Is having that edifice ren ovated and beautified. About $3,000 will be expended on the work. of this. He offers 85,000 to any one who will prove that he Is not a priest "in good standing of the Archdiocese. of Chicago." This is "baby" play, for:. First Crowley has ' not . the $5,000. .Second Crowley never was re ceived, into, the diocese ot Chicago. Third Needed no excommunica tion after he attempted to marry; even a lay person who marries out of the church is excommunicated by his very act. Crowley was formally excom municated and all Chicago was notified about it, but the excom munication was lifted by Cardinal Martinelll, when it was believed he would go West and desist from his scandal-giving crusade. For him to state that he is still a priest In good standing of the Archdiocese of Chi cago, because lie did not leave the diocese under excommunication, is ridiculous. Crowley is , doing the "dirty work" now, only because he can not make a living in an hon orable way. Had he a living, -he would be behaving himself now, as the following Incident will show: On October 7,- 1911, he called on Bishop Muldoon at Rock ford, under the assumed, name of Mr. Brown. In this interview he offered to se'il plates and manuscripts of his old book and the manuscripts of a book which tie threatened to publish re flecting on the church and the min isters of the church, unless a money consideration would be given him. He said that his proposal was a 'cold blooded proposition," that he needed the money "it would put him on Easy street," - as he ex pressed it. In his interview he vehemently denounced his formar friends and , co-conspirators as 'scoundrels, millionaires, " rascals, liars and fools," who had induced him to do his mean acts and had now deserted him. He said that one object he had in publishing tho new volume was to show up his farmer friends In their true light the other was to obtain money from the publication. Unknown to Crow ley, there was a witness to 'his con versation and proposition, and this witness, the Rev. J. J. Flanagan, herewith solemnly makes testimony as to the blackmail: I, J. J. Flanagan,' a Catholic priest of the diocese of Rook ford, do solemnly testify that on October 7; 1911, I saw J. J. Crowley and heard him make a proposition to Right Rev. Bishop Muldoon. The proposi tion was to the effect that he, J. J. Crowley, for a consideration of $50,000, would turn over to Bishop Muldoon, and refrain from publish ing certain plates and manuscripts, the purpose of publishing which was to defame the , Roman Catholic church and the mlnlsteTs thereof. I also heard the Bishop's rejection of J. J. Crowley's offer. I heard the Bishop tell Crowley that he was a blackmailer and an extortioner and that he would not give five cents for all the rubbish which J. J. Crowley could collect in a thousand years. . (Signed) J. J. Flanagan. PRIEST'S JUR1I.EE. The Very Rev. Dr. Gregory Beoh told, D. D., O. S. B.. rector of St Meinrad's Ecclesiastical Seminary at SI. Melnrad, Ind., and one of (the most learned priests In this part o' the country, on Monday celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of hit 'ordination to the priesthood. In Keeping with his wishes, the celebra tion was rather a spiritual and family affair than a great festivity. The monastery will celebrate Dr. Greg cry's silver Jubilee October 15, a veil as those of the Rev, Dominic Parthel, O. S. B., rector of the Preparatory College, and the. Rev. Vincent Wagner, O. 8. B., professor ot music and organist at the Abbey. Father Dominic was ordained No vember 25, and Father Vincent Sep tember 29, 1888. OCTOBER WEDDIXO. Miss T.oretta 'Maloney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Maloney, who has been spending thie summer with her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Maloney, 'of Waldwlck, N. J., has returned home to Covington to prepare for her marriage to Oharle A. Glides, assistant manager of the Lorillard Tobacco Oompuny, Jemey City, N. J. The wedding will be sol emnized at St. Mary's Cathedral In Oitober.. CHIEF Jl'STICE (TI.LEX. The impeachment trial at Albany will direct the attention of the peo ple of the State to Judge Cullun, Its presiding Judge. During a long and useful life he has rendered con spicuous service to the nation as a gallant officer and to the State as a Judge of lung service. Moilext and inasaumlng In demeanor, deeply ic-arned In the law, courteous to listen I lit decisive to rule when counsel have presented their views, he is re spected and beloved by the entire bar of the State. Happily an oppor tunlty Is now afforded Judge Cullen to render another great public serv ice Juirt on the eve of his retirement It Is fortunate that the State can commend the service elf such a man In so great a matter. KXtflHTHOOD FOR XEUHASKAX, The Omaha True Voice was first to give out the news that John P. Sutton, of Lincoln, Neb., had been appointed uy th Pope a Knight of the Order of St. Gregory the Great. ' The honor is on of the highest conferred by the Pope uiion a layman and is given in recognition of ncitable nervines ren dVrod .the church.' An appropriate decoration goes with the appointment consisting of a large double-pointed golden star, suspended by ribbon and to be worn on the breast. It is expected that this decoration will be brought U Lincoln by BiRhop Tihen on hi return from Rome and that It will he conferred at a public function loon afterward. Mr. Sutton, who is !xty-elght years old, has been a resident of Lincoln for many years He saw service in th!e regular army operating Against the Indians in the West in the late sixties. On his re tirement from the army .he entered business. He was for several years National Secretary of the Irish Land League in America, when the late .lohn Fitzgerald, of Lincoln, was President. Mr. Sutton has now the honor of being the only Knight of St. Gregory In Nebraska. The late Count Crelgtvton held that ,hon:r. but since his death it has not been teld by any laymen in Nebraska. RALLIES PLANNED. Three hundred representatives of the various Irish societies In the five .'.oroughs of New York, meeting in the hall of the United IrUh League, or. Friday night, completed arrange ments for a home rule night October ".. at Carnegie Music Hall. This will be the oepnlng gun of what Is hoied to be the final campaign of the Irish in America in behalf of the Irish Par- l.amentary party.

Corbley, President of Municipal Council of the United Irish League, was Chairman.' It was an nounced that Congressman James M. Graham, of Illinois, and John Purroy Mitchel, Collector of the Port;- will be two of three or frfur speakers on that occasion. Lieut. Gov.

The Siaten Island Institution will not keep patients Incurably ill, as Rossa l: said to be. About a year ago Justices Goff and Cohalan, of the Supreme Court, raised $800 among New York Judges and lawyers 'for the old man's aid, and some hundreds more have since been collected by public subscription. MACKIN COUNCIL. - - There was a marked increase in the attendance at the meeting ot Mackln Council this week, which was full of interest. Besides the usual routine a committee was appointed to confer with Trinity and Unity Councils and arrange for the joint initiation to take place in the near future.

NOT YET lias Any Iccllon lleen Keached Upon Lord Lorelmrn's - I'ropoHnl. Nationalist and Liberals Mtiuiri Ins; Firm Vor Their Home KuleltlU. Carson and Ills Ulster Follow ers C'onfeMM Their Acts Unlawful. t PROPOSAL MEETS WITH DISSENT It. is a curious fact, cables T. P. C'Connor, that aide by side with the fierce opposition to home rule for Ireland which la going on at this moment thre la running stream of tendency to a solution of the difficul ties of the British empire, which nec etsarlly Involves home rule for Ire lend. Party loyaJty though is so 'rong In the present House of Com mons that Premier Asqulth wHI probably be barked by his supporters In whatever line he takes, and they sill not consent to embarrass him or to embarrass home rule for Ireland. Is it not a strange topsy-turvy phe nomenon that Ireland today is the chief concern of the Liberals In Eng land, Scotland and Wales; that this Issue, which formerly weakened and divided and exiled from power for nearly a quarter of a century the Liberal party; shculd today be the lion clamp whlcb keeps them to rtther? i Reviewing the effects of Lord Lore turn's proposition another corre spondent cable the following from London: So far as "otward appearances go the position of affairs In Ulster has not changed during the ten days that have elapsed since the appearance of the memorable Wter of Lord Lore- burn, the former Lord High Chancel lor, In 'he Times, in which he sug gested conference of leading repre sentatives of all parties Interested in the Irlh Question, but as Sir Edward Carson, the leader . of the Ulster Unionists, has said, the question can no longer stand ae it did before the appearance of that letter. U to both natural and necessary that the pre- 1 miliary stages of the discussion in which such issues are lnvol vec jWW be private. No one even rJTw pre- tends to know whsrtbsw.s' not--, bhe suggested conference will be held, for li is certain that no decision either for or against the holding of such a meeting has as yet been made. Although the proposal, ae la only natural, has evoked a storm of angry dissent from both Unionists and home rulers, it Is nevertheless being seri ously and dispassionately considered. No- one. however, has as yet evolved a hadls on which such a conference could meet with' any likelihood of successful Issue to the deliberations. Fir Edward Carson and his Ulster men refuse to budge a Jot from thlr determination to be "governed only by an imperial party and an executive who will be responsible to it." The Irish Nationalists are equally firm in their adherence to the ry for a "sep arate nationality." Thus the ob stacles to any "settlement by consent" are fatal. On the other hand . the sympa thizers with Lord Loreburn scheme profess to find sonve ground for hope. The Times Is encouraged by what it calls "th new spirit" which Ireland has dereloiied In the last twenty years as shown in the working of the local government act. Lord Grey, who is a stout home ruler, is tn hopes that the conference will be- held and that it will evolve a scheme of fed eralism which will cover the minima demanded by the Ulster Unionists and the Nationalists respectively. But when all has been said and done no one seems to venture more than . a somewhat feeble hope that a confer ence may be held and the still more feeble hope that it will be successful In attaining Its object. Meanwhile Sir Edward Carson and lis followers in Ulster are going on with their plans without secrecy or subterfuge. Sir Edward openly con fesses that their' proceedings are Illegal. He says "the drilling of the men Is illegal, the volunteer them elves are illegal and the Government knows they are Illegal but does not dare to Interfere." The Dally Tele graph says that arrangements for the formation In Ulster by a council of five of a aetiarate constitution are ap parently far adyanoed and that an announcement to this effect may be made in a few days. FATHER HOVYLETT COMING. Rev. W. J. Howlett, who for thirty- seven years has labored in Colorado, v 111 leave next week for Loretto, Ky., there he will be chaplain at the mother house of the Sisters of Lor etto.
