PRICE FIVE CENTS. A IE SB HOME RULE Panne House Jof Commons and Ireland Again Hecomesa Nation. Regains Her Parliament After a Straggle Lasting Over a Century. 'William O'Brien and III Fol lower Abstained From Voting. STATEMENT ISSUED BY REDMOND By a vote of 351 to 274 a majority of seventy-seven the House of Commons passed the home rule bill. Under the provisions of the Parliament act the bill becomes law after this stage, as It had already twice passed through all its stages In the House of Commons in two separate sessions, and the veto of the House of Lords therefore has no fur ther effect. When the bill was sent up to the House of Lords it was ac companied by a group of Jubilant Nationalists, who escorted the offi cial bearer of the bill and sang "GoJ Save Ireland." The House of Lords afterward formally read the bill a first time. The end of the hard fought strug gle came suddenly, the Unionists re fusing to debase the bill without further information as to the Gov ernment's Intentions in regard to the proposed amending measure. Bonar Law, leader of the opposition, in timated an appeal to the country was not far off and added: "Let the cur tain ring down on this contemptible farce. It is only the end of an act and not of the play. TheOovern ment can carry the bill through Parliament, but the concluding act of the drama will be in the country, where an appeal to the people will not end in a farce." Premier Asqulth defended the Government against the charge of Ignoring the rights of the minority and explained that be was introduc ing an amending bill not because he thought that the Irian home rule measure was bad or Imperfect, but because he was anxious for peace. The vote was then taken and the an nounceemnt of the figures brought out a great demonstration by the -Nationalists snd the Liberals. They rose from their seats, cheering and waving hats and handkerchiefs. The division was taken strictly on party lines. The followers of William O'Brien abstained from voting, O'Brien expressing the view that "the Premier's action was not straight dealing either with England or Ireland." John E. Redmond, the Irish Na tionalist leader, in a stateemnt says the division in the House of Com mons Is equivalent to the passage of the home rule bill Into law, and ex presses the earnest hope that the Ulsterltes, "who are genuinely nervous as to their position, will abandon unreasonable demands and enter into a conciliatory discussion with their fellow countrymen with regard to the points of the bill upon which they desire further safe guards. Today's division," says Redmond, "marks the death after an Inglorious history of the 114 years of the union of Pitt and Castlereagh. Its place is to be taken by a new union founded on mutual respect and Kood will between the two islands." Proceeding the Nationalist leader de clares that only two eventualities, both of them impossible, could pre vent the bill from becoming a statute within a few weeks the first, that the Parliamentary session should come to an abrupt end; the second, that the House of Commons should suddenly go mad and decide not to submit the bill for royal as sentboth as absurd contingencies as the suggestion that the King would withhold his assent Mr. Redmond continues: "I say on behalf of the Nationalists of Ireland that we desire their co-operation and friendship, and I appeal to them to Join hands with us in making the home rule settlement one to Insure the prosperity and freedom of all classes in the country." - Concerning the amending bill, Redmond says: "If It contains the terms of an agreement whereby some of our fellow countrymen In the North, who are now dissatisfied and nervous about the future, will be conciliated and does not outrage the fundamental principles of the home rule settlement I am convinced that every Nationalist in Ireland will re joice. If the amending bill does not contain such an agreement I see no prospect of it becoming a law. In any case, falling an agreement, the Irish party have mads it plain that their bands are free to deal with any proposals that may be made. The great thing for us to remember is that, amending bill or no amending bill, home rule is now practically so act of Parliament." Now that the home rule bill has been passed, public interest nas shitted and concentrated on Ulster province. The big question of the hour is: "What will Ulster do now that the home rule bill has been enacted without any amendment guaranteeing the exclusion of Ulster from Its provisions?" It Sir Kdwsrd Carson, Capt. James Crsig snd other leaders of the anti-bome rule Orangemen put Into execution the threats they have made and reiter ated during the last few months, civil war will follow in the North of Ireland. Dispatches say that peace and ij u lot reigns throughout Ireland, the passing of the bill not causing trou ble anywhere. The predictions made so freely by certain Unionists that Ms final adoption by the House of Commons would be followed by fierce outbursts In Ulster and sanguinary conflicts between the Orangemen and Nationalists have failed thus far. The authorities, civil and military, are keeping a careful watch and trains are held at ststlons with steam up in readiness to rush troops or armed police wher ever they might be needed to sup press riots, which nearly everybody thought were bound to occur. Mean while, many Unionists declare that it Is only the storm which presages a fierce storm, and that, failing the defeat of the Government at a gen eral election, civil war looms ahead as a certainty. A curious feature of the situation is that the Unionist leaders are now claiming that the Ulster volunteers are preserving peace in Ulster. MOURN HER DEATH. It Is with deep regret that the Kentucky Irish American reports the death of Miss Annie O'Donaghue, aged thirty-seven, niece of the Right Rev. Denis O'Donaghue, Bishop of Louisville. Miss O'Donaghue was stricken with pulmonary trouble ten weeks ago and was taken to Sts. Mary and Elisabeth Hospital, where (.he passed peacefully away on Friday night, despite the love and care of the Sisters and everything known to medical science. For many years she had made her home with the Bishop, and since the death of her slBter, some months ago, she bad been the housekeeper at his- res idence, where her pleasing and affable manner won the affection and endeared her to all callers. Sun day morning her remains were shipped to Cannelburg, Ind., her girlhood home, for burial. May her soul rest in peace is the prayer of her many friends. IMPORTANT AMENDMENT.

Hundreds of Young Men Will Ha Klevated to Dignity of the Priesthood. Brief Explanation of Ceremonies That Will Interest Their Friends. Spend Years In Diligent Prepar ation For Their Sacred Office. INVESTED WITH TWOFOLD POWER During the next month hundreds of young men who have completed their education In the seminaries of the United States and Europe will be elevated to the dignity of the priesthood. A brief explanation of the ordination ceremonies will doubt less be of Interest to our readers who number among their friends those who have spent years In diligent preparation for this sacred office. The young candidate, having pre viously received tonsure, the four minor orders, the major orders of sub-deacon and deaconship, now pre sents himself for ordination to the priesthood. Veeted in amice, alb, maniple and stole, bearing the chasuble upon the left arm, and a lighted candle in the right hand, he proceeds to the sanctuary. The deacons to be promoted to the priest hood are presented to the Bishop by the archdeacon with the following bequest: "Most Reverend Father, our holy mother, the Catholic church, asks that you would ordain the deacons here present to the bur den of the priesthood." The Bishop replies: "Do you know whether they are worthy?" The archdeacon an swers: "As much as human fralllty permits. I know and testify that they are worthy to receive the bur den of this office." ' To express his joy and gratifica tion at this good testimony, the or daining prelate answers: "Thanks be to God." This question of the Bishop la put to the archdeacon be cause. In the primitive church, it was the duty of the archdeacon to watch over the junior clergy, and hence knew who among them was worthy of promotion. The office of archdeacon no longer exists In this regard and today the rector of the seminary is obliged to answer con cerning the worthiness of the candi date. Not contented with the an swer of tbe archdeacon, the Bishop turns toward all those present, both clergy and laity, and announces to them that he is about to promote those kneeling before him to the priesthood, and that if any one has anything to allege against any one of the candidates he may freely de clare It. No objections being raised, the Bishop then proceeds to admon ish the candidates of the duties and functions of the priesthood and exhorts them to discharge them faithtfully. Those to be ordained then pros trate themselves in the sanctuary and the Litany of the Saints is chanted. Toward the end of the litany the Bishop, having put on his mitre and taken his crosier, turns toward those prostrated and prays, "That thou wouldst vouchsafe to bless, sanctify and consecrate these elect, we beseech thee, hear us." When the litany has been chanted the candidates rise and the imposi tion of hands takes place. Accord ingly the Bishop first, and then ail the priests present, one after an other, lay both of their hands on the bead of each of the candidates suc cessively, and while the priests hold their hands extended over the per son to be ordained the Bishop aBks them to unite their prayers with his "That God will pour out over his servants whom He has chosen for the priesthood the fullness of his heav enly gifts that the office which is imposed upon tbem through the grace of tbe Most High might also be administered to them by his di vine grace." After the Imposition of bands the Bishop crosses the stole over the breast of the newly ordained priest. saying "Take upon thyself the yoke of the Lord, for his yoke is sweet and his burden Is light." The priest Is then Invested with the chasuble snd reminded that it represents charity, "For God Is mighty to In crease In thee His charity and to make perfect thy works." The Holy Ghost is then Invoked by the hymn, "Venl Creator." After the first verse has been sung and the choir continues with the remainder of tbe hymn the Bishop proceeds to anoint the thumb and the index finger of each hand and then the palms of both hands of the priest, after which the Bishop presents to each the chalice with wine and water and the paten with an altar bread, saying ' Receive the power to offer sscrlfice to God 8P'1 o celebrate mass as well for the living as for the dead In the name of the Lord." If you have ever witnessed an ordination you will have observed that tbe back part of the chasuble of the newly ordaiued priest is folded In hslf, and the meaning of this 4s the following: At ordination the priest is Invested with a two fold nower. the power to offer the sacrifice of tbe mass and the power to forclve sins. The Unit power is elven by the first Imposition of the hands. The second, altbousb Im parted In the first Imposition, Is nevertheless again expressly and specially conferred by a second Im putation which takes place at the end of the mass. The Blshop'then says: "Receive the Holy Ghost, whose sins you shall forgive they are for given, and whose sins you shall re tain they are retained." Then as a sign that the priest Is now endowed with the fullness of the sacerdotal power the chasuble is united and permitted to hang down. The above mentioned are some of the beautiful ceremonies that accompany the con ferring of holy orders. SISTER'S SILVER JUBILEE. A notable and happy event of tbe week was the silver Jubilee of 81ster Mary Andrew, of the Ursullne order. one of the loved teachers at Holy Trinity parochial school, Kentucky snd Dupuy streets, celebrated Thurs day morning at Holy Trinity church with Levltlcal high mass.

PONTIFF PRAISES PEACE EFFORTS At the consistory held st the Vatican on Monday morning Pops Plus created thirteen new Cardinals, and a number of " BiBhops from various countries also were con firmed in their sees. At tbe same time official announcement was made of the creation of Monslgnor Bell , Patriarch of Lisbon, as Car dinal, His name has been reserved "in petto" at the consistory of 1911. The ceremony, which was accom panied by the brilliance usual on such occasions at the Vatican, was preceded by a short allocution, after which the names of the new Car dinals were announced as follows: ' Monslgnor Louis Lazaire Begin, Archbishop of Quebec, Canada. Monslgnor V. Gulsasola y Mendez, Archbishop of Toledo, Spain. Monslgnor Demenclo Seraflnl, As sessor of the Congregation of the Holy Office. Monslgnor Delia Chlesa, Arch bishop of Bologna, Italy. . Monslgnor John Csernock, Arch bishop of Esztergom, Hungary.. Monslgnor Francis Von Betlnger, Archbishop of Munich, Bavaria. Monslgnor Felix Von Hartman, Archbishop of Cologne, Germany. ' Monslgnor F. G. Piffi. ArchbishoD of Vienna, Austria. - Consignor Phillipp Glustlnl, Sec retary of the Congregation of the Congregation of the Sacraments. Monslgnor Hector Ire nee Sevln, Archbishop of Lyons, France.' Monslgnor Mlchale Lega, Dean of the Tribunal of the Rota, Monslgnor Sclplo Tecchl, Assessor of the Consistorial Congregation. Right Rev. Francis Aldan Gas- quet, President of . the English Benedictines. .. .The Pontiff was surrounded by all the members of the' Sacred College living in Rome and by those who are now there, including Cardinals Gib bons, Farley and O'Connell. The Pope appointed Cardinal Francis Delia Volpe to the office of Cham berlain, in which position he ,will direct the affairs of tbe church dur ing the conclave. Cardinal Ulomede Falconlo, formerly Apostolic Dele gate to the United States, also was raised to the mark of Chamberlain. The allocution of the Pope was a strong appeal for political and social peace through restoration of religion and the Influence of trie church. Immediately after the con clusion of the secret consistory the Pontiff visited each of the new Car dinals and handed him his formal notice of appointment. ' Cardinal Gasquet, the English Benedictine, delivered an address in which he said he regarded himself as representing Rome not only . in England, but Ireland, Wales and Scotland, and "if not altogether too ambitious, I can claim, after my re cent visit to the United States, to be partly American, as I can count upon the true and affectionate regard of many people In that great republic." Tbe Pope In the cofrse of his re marks declared his Constanttnian jubilee when he said: "The whole world seemed to lift up the Cross of Christ as the sole course of peace and salvation for struggling hu manity. . 'Now especially men desire peace when class is against class, nation against nation and people against people' and war may break out as the result of rivalries dsily becoming more bitter. Men of dis tinction and force are planning for tbetr nations and for humanity schemes for preevntlng the calami ties of revolutions and the slaughter of war and for Insuring the blessings of peace. This Is a noble project. but their -schemes will bear little fruit unless they Insure thst the precepts of Justice and Christian charity take deep root In tbe hearts of men. The assistance of the church as guardian of justice and charity snd the mistress of truth Is most sfflcacUms for the common weal. It Is regrettable that the opposite often occurs, but the church, like Christ, does good and receives Injuries In return. The divine help will never fail us. Wa have Christ for a pledge and history for a witness." Tbe allocution ended by recalling that 100 years ago Plus VII. tri umphantly returned to Rome from contumelies and captivity, and was received with the applause of tbe world. The passage regarding "men of distinction and force planning schemes for preventing the calami ties of revolution and the slaughter of wsr and for Insuring ths blessings of peace" was generally interpreted ss referring to President "Wilson's snd Secretary Bryan's endeavors to preserve peace.

SENATORIAL Hace Given New Angle by the Entrance of Col. Bennett II. Young. McCrearyCaiuden Combination If Effected Will Defeat Ileckhnm. Loss of Mayo Campaign Fund Is Causing Ills Room to Wane. CANDIDATES FOR CIRCUIT CLERK A new angle was given to tbe mixup In the United States Sen atorial race when Gen. Bennett H. Young announced Thursday that he would be a candidate In the 'August primary for the short term, caused by the death of Senator Bradlev. and if nominated and elected would serve from the election in November until March, 1916, while the ap pointee of Gov. MoCreary will also have a four months' term, the ap pointment to be made in the next several days and to serve from June until the 'November election. It has been suggested that the Governor could simplify the situation by ap pointing Oen. Young for the first four months, and it is believed tbat this will be done If Johnson Camden refuses the appointment, which has been tendered him by the Governor. Then again If Mr. Camden accepts the appointment hard sledding is in sight for the Beckham candidacy for the long term, as a combination of Mccreary for the long term and Camden for the short term would be nard to beat, as the Camden bank roll ana Influence would make short shrift of tbe Haley methods, which consist of . hypocritical efforts to achieve success through the espousal of the prohibition cause. In the event that Camden does not offer the combination of Gov. McCreary and Gen. Young will have the united support of the old Confederates, who are a strong factor in Democratic circles. It Is tbe belief generally that the Beckham boom la waning, especially since the death of John C C. Mayo who was expected to furnish the sinews of war for ' the Beckham ' cause,, and that .all Is not so rosy as claimed, by the Evening itan" .11 . evidenced from the following In the Shelby Record: . There are "wheels within wheels and the persistency with which the' Louisville Post and Herald, the Har- rodsburg Leader and other Republi can newspapers are Interesting themselves, and advocating , Mr. Beckham for the Democratic nomina tion for Senator. Is "a little bit" suspicious. Their hope to elect a Republican Senator lies In the selec tion of a weak Democratic nominee at the general election. The above, referring to the Post as a Republican paper, is a little unkind when it is conceded that the Post made the leading tight among the dailies for the success of the Wilson ticket in 1912 and the local Democratic ticket last year, which fact seems to have slipped Editor Shinnick's mind, but he is certainly striking a popular chord In figuring Beckham as a weak Democratic nominee In tbe general election. Although a little early, two or three prospective candidates are In the field for the Democratic nomina tion for Circuit Clerk next year, Magistrate Dacher, Robert Kalten bacher, John H. Page and Henry Bell being prominently mentioned, tbe first three being pretty sure starters, while it is a little doubtful about Bell's entrance, be having re ceived pretty nearly every gift in the 'Democratic party, and as the last election showed, new and young men are the keynote for continued success of the party. EXCURSION. Tbe excursion to be given on June 14 by the Cahollo Knights of Louis ville to Haweaville, Cannelton and Tell City Is attracting much atten tion. Tell City Knights are arrang ing for a hearty reception for the visitors, who will find much there to Interest and entertain tbem. At the committee meeting Tuesday night It was reported that many had already arranged to take the trip and that Its success was already assured. The trsln will leave the Tenth-street station at 7:4 5 a. m., and ths round fare will be $1.65. There will also be In Tell City tbat day large dele gations of Catholic Knights from Evsnsville, Jasper and other Indiana cities. (OEM TO BUFFALO. John X. Klnberger, of whom there is no more popular young railroad man In Louisville, leaves today to accept ths position of traveling freight agent for the Big Four road at Buffalo, hla ability in that line while working as ssslsfant freight agent here having been recognised, and ha received tbe promotion with a largs Increase in salsry attached. We will all miss "Klmmy's" smiling countenance, but he goes to bis new location with the best wishes of his host of local friends and admirers. FORTY HOURS' PRAYER. The Forty Hours' prsyer In this city begins tomorrow at 6t. Peter Claver's church. They will open with the high mass tomorrow morn ing aud continue until Tuesday.
