The Kentucky Irish American to day extends heartiest congratula tions to the Right Rev. Denis O'Don aghue. Bishop of Louisville, on the attainment of the fourteenth anni versary rf his consecration, with the earnest -prayer that we may all be spared to again congratulate him on his silver jubilee. Bishop O'Don aghue was sonsecrated titular Bishop of Pomarlo and Auxiliary Bishop of Indianapolis on April 25, 1900, and transferred to the Louisville diocese on February 7, 1910, to succeed Bishop McCloskey, who died Sep tember 17, 1909. WAR. That there will be war between the United States and Mexico now seems Inevitable, no matter how deplorable. President Wilson has done eevrything possible to avoid conflict, but the studied and per sistent insults to our flag and country call for prompt action. The people of this country will give their united support to their President. Should war be declared the first tep should be to arrest and incar cerate 'Huerta, Villa, Carania and all the faction leaders, and then a table and firm government might be speedily established, thus preventing greater loss of life and money. All pray that peace may be soon re stored. DON'T WANT THEM. Protestant sects do not want ex-prlests. Such Individuals, says the Catholic Advance, are not to be trusted, and nobody knows this better than (Protestants themselves. As long as an ex-priest will do the dirty work of maligning the Catholic church he'll be furnished an audi ence of some kind. But even at that Protestants do not like to bring him out in public. They much prefer that he would write some filthy attack on convents and the Catholic clergy, or at least sign his name to such an attack and remain out of sight. Protestants do not show one-twentieth part of the con- si deration for ex-prlests that Cath olics are always manifesting toward ex-ministers. One never neara of an ex-prleat attaining a position of dignity or even trust in any of the sectarian cnurches. A mud-sllnger'a little flag wavers and patriotic shout Job seems to be the best that is open n the United States In times of to him. With us. on ths contrary, 'm. Doming is too good for convert parsons. In fact, it was almost, a custom in England sums years ago to choose for Catholic Bishops those who had come over from the Anglican church, and ths Cardinal ate was given to two of them. Times and customs have not changed so much, as we see today from the very flattering receptions tendered everywhere la the East to Uonslgnor Benson. There la a reason for thla difference of treat ment. Conviction and sincerely conscientious motives prompt SATURDAY. APRIL 25. 1914. I versions to Catholicism. Men leave the Protestant churches because they are anxious to become better. They want to accept Christ's revela tion in its entirety. They bring with them a long record of good deeds and they Invariably live upright lives as long as they remain true to the teachings and spirit of the church. Hatred for their former fellow-worshipers has no part in their lives. At most they pity and pray for others who can not get the same focus on religious truth as they have themselves. But what Is the usual stock-in-trade of the average ex-priest? Lies, lies, lies. The man knows he lies and his employers know it, too. On that account these will not trust him any further than their, noses. Protestants have been fooled too often by these "converts"' from Romanism, these "brands snatched from the turning," to place themselves - In their hands. And so we never find an ex-priest among presiding elders or supreme moderators or on the Bishops' bench. If there Is any person Prot estants despise more thoroughly than the ex-prlest it Is an "escaped nun." They are not to be blamed, for the escaped nun Is about the last word in degraded womanhood, as the history of such creatures fully proves. CLEAN SPORT. Much Interest Is being shown throughout local Catholic circles in the launching of the third season of the Twin City League, which Is to make Its initial bow tomorrow after noon on the four Shawnee Park dia monds. The games of this league will be clean, and from the rivalry existing between the teams all sorts of excitement Is promised for the fans. Playing or witnessing the games is pleasant and healthful amusement which should be encour aged. Here's hoping for a close race and that the best club may win. DANGER TO WOMEN. Declaring himself opposed to women suffrage, Archbishop Moeller, of Cincinnati, recently Issued an official letter In which he urged all Catholic women to make a decided stand against the movement. The Archbishop stated: "One of the burning questions of the day is that of woman suffrage. It is a move ment that does not appeal to us be cause we feel that It will bring women Into a sphere of activities that Is not In accord with their retiring modesty, maidenly dignity and refinement. We fear that suf fragette women will cease to be the queens of the home." These are words that should be well thought over by every mother and wife. YOUR DUTY. Just at a time when the Gospel of Peace is being preached throughout the Catholic world there has loomed up on the distant horizon of Mexico the storm clouds of war. However much we may deprlcate . the diplomacy that has temporized with the exasperating and insulting ag gravations of drunken and enthroned Ignorance, we have at last arrived at the generally anticipated end, and it Is now the duty of every citizen, and curbstone orator as well, to subordinate his superior wisdom to that of the administration and support it In Its endeavor to maintain the hopor and dignity of the nation. If it be true, as stated, that "Huerta is a brandy-soaked sot. as drunk as he is Ignorant," then it Is time that the "watchful waiting" policy should be abandoned and an active, aggressive one pursued in the future. FOLLOW GROUND HOG. The Junior Order, Guardians of Liberty and other A. P. A. societies will now retire Into oblivion, that the country 1b engaged in war .or the .semblance of war. but they still have the reputation of being the greatest EXHIBITS TRUE FEELING. Old John Bull is now showing how much he really believes In that hands serosa the sea policy by the nasty digs the English press is taking at America In the Mexican trouble. ANOTHER KNOCKOVT. Pope Plus has expressed his disap proval of the formation of a "Cath- olio party1 ln Francs, on the ground eon-(tbat he desires the church to be kept clean of politics. Another knockout for the A. P." A. contention. The tolls repeal bill Is like the privateer Alabama, of civil war fame, but with this difference: It is Eng land that will be compensated for the destruction of our marine carry ing trade. The month of May and Mary will soon be here a time of great graca for those who ask the intercession of Our Lady. Twenty-five more homes were dis rupted Saturday In the Jefferson County Court via the divorce route. The A. P. A. patriots will now sup port the Government by adopting res olutions of patriotism. Christianity la the foundation on hlch civilization rests. Do away with it and we have chaos. FASHIONABLE FEATHERS. How plessant H Is, In the trolley car riding, Behind some fair creature, as sweet as a rose, To spend all the moments in dex- t'rously dodging The plumes on her headgear that tickle one's nose. Oh, the sharp, shiny feathers the tall, skinny feathers the broad, fluffy feathers that tickle one's nose! Vain, vain are all motions, to one side or t'other The plumage pursueth wherever one gees. They whtsk o'er one's face like brisk feather duster Those ' fash'nable feathers that tickle one's nose. Oh, the fat, fussy feathers the long drooping feathers the feath ers engaging that tickle one's nose! J. K. W SOCIETY. J. B.
