Progressives Will Confer Favor on Community In th Selec tion of Fox. MANY MOURN "JACK" SHEA. The events of the past week from a political .standpoint showed that Gov. McCreary had offset a lot of criticism In the insurance rating case by materially assisting In the arbitration proceedings which terminated In the joint statement paying the Governor quite a compli ment in the matter, and it is safe to say has secured him additional support in his race for the Demo cratic nomination for United States Senator. Another feature of this race Is the surprising strength being de veloped by Congressman Stanley out In the State, reliable authorities stating his gain In the country dis tricts Is remarkable, and which must be given credence when It is taken Into account that the Beckham forces have begun to get busy in the cities, which vote heretofore they elected to ignore, the managers and backers of the ex-Governor always claiming that he did not need the cities on account of his strangle-hold on the farmers' vote, whom they claimed would support Beckham for any office and on any old platform. That there must be some truth in the above report Is shown right here In Louisville by the attempt to or ganise a ward and precinct organiza tion and overtures being made to men whom ' Beckham and Haley Ignored and snubbed in the past. The Republicans have effected a trong combination in the Senatorial race by ' preparing to nominate Richard Ernst, of Covington, for the long term and Marshall Bullitt,-of Louisville, for the short term, tjie candidacy of these two being sure to materially Injure the chances of the Bull Moose party, who have nn such - nmDer in- ineir rantcs ana win De forced to fall back on Burton Vance and Wood Axton for their choices, and these two will not be able to even make a showing outside the city of Louisville, where the Pro gressive party Is still strong, not be cause of its platform and principles, but because there are a great many sorehead politicians from the Demo cratic and Republican parties. , The chief strength lies In the . motley crew of fanatics and ignoramuses feathered in its ranks, who sre not Progressives because of the high sounding principles of the party as stated so beautifully and regularly by the Herald editor, but simply be cause of prejudice, which Is proven by the fact that the Bull Moose iicnei in ine iasi eiecuuu wan com posed of members of the Junior Or der to the extent of 80 per cent., and while the Progressive party Is dying fast throughout the rest of the State and country, it will be a factor In Louisville, this town containing a preponderance of dupes and fanatics who are successors of those of the Bloody Monday days. Joseph P. Hines, Congressman Sherley's private secretary, returned Thursday noon from Washington and will assist In arranging the red tape necessary to Mr. Sherley's en trance Into the August primary, in which he will have no opposition The Congressman Is rapidly recov ering from his recent sick spell and will leave the next day or two for Canada to spend his summer vaca tion, not returning to LoulBvllle until near the end of the summer to orenare for the fall campaign. It appears that the wishes of a great many will be regarded in the choos ing Mr. Sherley's opponent, and as predicted and hoped In these col umns reecntly. H. I. Fox, the former candidate, will be selected as the proverbial lamb, which is indeed gratifying when it is taken into con sideration that he will have to run on his own merits, not tacked onto the Roosevelt kite, and the .result will forever put a quietus to all of that buncombe from the Herald and other Progressive authorities about "the man that gave Sherley such a close race." In the passing of "Jack" Shea the Democratic party In Louisville lost a valuable asset and worker, while the present leaders lost a friend and associate that wss tried and true staunch aud loyal to them in all situations through victory or de feat, which is indeed rare in politics, snd the thought of these virtues will always remain as a pleasant niem ory of "Honest Jack" Shea. KNIGHTS OF ST. JOHN1. Almost every detail Is completed for the national convention of the Knights of St. John, which will be held in Cincinnati during the week beginning June St. Col. Paul Mill! ken and ex-t'hlef of Police Charles A.

Be- sides the marching prise drillers and, commanderles, each carriage con- talnlng the ladles of the auxiliaries will be guarded by an escort of Sir . Knights on horseback with lances and accoutered much as the Knights of fit. John of old times.

ORPHAX PICNIC. ' Bertrand Hall was well Monday night when the filled newly formed Orphan Society met to fur-! ther arrangements for the Fourth of July picnic to be given for the St. Vincent and SU Thomas Orphanages. Reports showed that interest in the new organization was growing, and Its success seems assured. Many of the Chairmen of the committees re ported the progress they were mak ing, and to some additions were made. It was especially gratifying to see the large number of ladles present, from whom were received assur ances of every assistance possible. Mrs. John Buschemeyer accepted the charge of the linen booth and a number of ladles volunteered to be her assistants. A feature this year will be the "dairy luncheon," ever which a number of well known ladles will preside. Much en thusiasm prevailed, and another large attendance Is looked for at the meeting Monday night In Ber trand Hall. HACItKI) UK ART ACADEMY. .

EARMARKS OF AN ANARCHISTS One of our subscribers residing at Corinth sends the clippings from the Grant County News, which are self explanatory. In the news column of that paper appear the following, which shows that In Grant county there Is a sense of justice: William Roberts, an itinerant preacher of no particular faith, but with an Insane hatred against all Catholics, was arrested Tuesday afternoon charged with disorderly conduct and haled before Judge Gray, who Imposed a fine of $21. He was taken to the County Jail, where he continued his abusive tirade-until his wind partially gave out. Roberts 'talked or preached to small crowds on the street all day Monday and Tuesday and be came very abusive, but was not molested until he annoyed several ladles In town by going to their homes, and upon finding that their religious teachings were not the same as his, began to abuse them It Is said that several people offered to get up a subscription to pay his fine and secure his release, but he requested them net to do so, as he Intended to -bring suit against the town when he had served hiB time. Roberts appears to be a fanatic of the first degree and there is every evidence that he is not wholly of sound mind. He bears all the ear marks of an I. W. W. or even an anarchist. He claims to be working In . the Interest of some secret or ganizatlon which has no lodge In this part of the country. Roberts says his home is in Shelbyvllle, but that he formerlly lived in Winches ter. In his ranting on the street he assailed all Catholics With spite ful venom, made charges against them that were unfair and unjust in I the extreme, declared that President i Wilson was a Catholic, and made ! nuisance of himself in general.

They have just finished tour of Ireland and after several days' sray in London will leave for Paris and the mountains of Swltser land.

Sister Joseph Nugent Was First to lie Professed In. America. CONDUCT SPLENDID INSTITUTION By James A. Rooney. Though the first Sisters of Mercy sent across the Atlantic from the mother house in Dublin arrived In New York in 1846 there was another and of the same order who pre ceded them, and the destination ot these other Sisters was St. John's, Newfoundland. They came at the nvltatlon of the Right Rev. Dr. leming, O. S. F the Vicar Apos tolic, who had long designed a foundation of the Sisters of Mercy. With that In view he sent Miss Cree- don, a native of his vicariate, to Ireland, where she made her novitl- te under the foundress, the Kev. Mother McCauIeyJ In preparation for the work she was! to take up in her native land. . ' These founders of a new convent n a new world were aisiers m. rsula Frayne, Frances Creedon and Rose Lynch. They sailed from lre- and on board the ship Sir Walter Scott in May, 1842, and arrived at St. John's on June 15, as noted in our Catholic chronology, their , fel low passengers being five priests and three candidates for the SiBters of the Presentation who had been al ready established in Newfoundland. On their arrival they were wel comed at the Convent of the Pre sentation, being later housed in the BiHhop's residence, where they re mained for six months until their convent near the Catnedral was ready. They opened their first school on May 1 the next year and It prospered from the beginning, as the population was mostly Catholic. The following year Mother I'rsula and Sister Rose were recalled to ire- land and the responsibilities or the foundation rested on Mother Cree don, Shared by Sister Joseph Nugent, who made her vows March 25, 1843, being the first Sister ot Mercy to be professed in America. Besides be ing an accomplished musician she was a fine classical scholar and well founded In French and Italian litera ture. In the conflagration -that laid St. John's in ashes, June 9, 1846, the Presentation Convent was destroyed and the Sisters were given a home in the Convent of Mercy, where they were guests for the following live years, in lea. me eiBiers 01 orc; moved into a new ana commodious stone convent built for them by Bishop Mullock, O. S. F.. and now they have five flourishing convents besides boarding schools, academies, hospitals and orphan asylums, prose cuting their works of mercy In a Catholic population 01 sdoui du.uuu.

Admission ten cents and children fnee, G. A. R. Veterans Iteinemher aud Honor Over Graves of Heroic Sisters. Do Answer to Present Hay Bigots Who Malign Nuns and Convents. Old Soldiers Indignantly Itcpu diate llaseless Charges Against Them. BRAVED THE DANGERS OF WAR One of the most disreputable features of the present campaign of bigotry against Catholics is the malicious attack on convents and Sisters. Women, whose lives are devoted to sacrifice from religious motives, are made the objects of most vicious calumnies. Just In how far they are a menace to Amerl can institutions, scurrilous sheets have not as yet had much to say, but conventual institutions have been represented as prisons from which the inmates can not escape That a growing number of ignorant people Is being affected by this cam paign of slander is not surprising but on the other hand, non-Catholics who have learned to respect the Sisters have been impelled to rally to their defense in the face of the baseless insinuations against them Let the Menace continue to malign the Sisters. Men like those of whom the Cincinnati Enquirer gave an account will indignantly repudiate these charges. Read the following "In a little cemetery In back of the Sisters of Charity's Mother House and Academy, on Mt. St. Jo seph, several miles above Delhi, are the graves of Sister. Anthony, the famous war nurse, and thirteen of her comrades, who braved the dan gers of war to administer to the sick and the dying during the Strug' gle between the North and South Until two years ago the Noyes-Mc Cook Post, G. A. R., made an an nual pilgrimage to the spot to honor the memory of the heroic women but when several of the old soldiers died from the effects of the climb up the long hill to the cemetery, it was decided to shift the office to younger shoulders. - "Yesterday the Sisters stationed at the academy received great bou quets of roses and twenty-eight small American flags from the mem bers of the post, to be used in decor ating the graves. Young women students at the school marched to the cemetery singing patriotic songs, scattering flowers over all the mounds In the cemetery and placed one of the flags at the head and the foot of each of the nurses graves, while the Sisters conducted a brief service of prayer. . "Five of the nurses who accom panied Sister Anthony when she chartered a steamboat, half a cen tury ago, went down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to the battle fields, are living at the St. Joseph Mother House, but each has passed her ninetieth year, and they were unable to be present to honor their departed comrades in the cemetery. They are Sister Theodocla, Sister Beatrice, Sister Ambrosia, Sister Benedlcta and Sister Veronica." VEENEMAN Hl'BBUCH.

APPOINT DR. POHERTY. Dr. William JJ. Doherty received word Saturday that his son, Dr William Brown Doherty, had been SDDolnted an interne at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, one of the largest Institutions of the kind lu the United States. There was only one vacancy, for which a num ber of candidates from leading unl' verslties of the country competed Before aolaa to""New York the vounc physician spent a year In the Louisville City Hospital. His friends here are much elated over his suc cess. JUBILEE AND CONCERT. The Rev. Martin O'Connor, the Indefatigable and hard working DHstor of 6t. Michael's church, one ot the oldest In the city, will ob serve the thirty-third anniversary of his ordination to the prWathood Ion Monday. June 29. In honor o the occasion the choir and members of the congregation are arranging for a grand open air concert to be held on the grounds adjoining the church, in which they will be as sisted by many of the leading sing ers of the city.

In which were many relatives and bovhood associates, filled St. John's church at Clay and Walnut ' last 8unday morning to greet the Rev. Father John D. Fallon and receive his blessing when he sans- his flrat maun The ceremony was brilliant and Im pressive, the young priest never faltering throughout the trying or deal. Within the sanctuary and as sisting at the mass were six priests. 11 ooys or St. John's nar sh. Rev John D. Kalaher. uncle of Father Fallon, preached an eloquent and powerful sermon, in which he dwelt upon the responsibilities and dig nity of the priesthood and the happi ness it brought the father and mother, the sister and brothers, to see the son and brother on the altar and receive from him the mniit blessed sacrament. As yet It has not been decided to what church Father Fallon will be assigned. The happy parents, Fergus and Catherine Fallon, were the recipients of many congratulations upon this mo mentous occasion. IRELAND PROSPEROUS. Lister Is not a huge armed camn resounding with arms, according to ex-Judge Morgan J. O'Brien, of New York, upon his return to London after a week-end motor car tour through Ireland with his wife and daughters. On the eve of his de parture for Paris, Judge O'Brien saia: "i motored trom Dublin to Kiiiarney, where I saw the lakes; tnence to nantry Bay and Cork. saw two large battleships at Bantry Bay. Otherwise without exceDtlon everything was as peaceful as a New England village. The people were going about their business. I no ticed a great Improvement in economic conditions since I visited Ireland ten years ago. The people are better housed and clothed, seem more prosperous, and would be a credit even to America. I found no visible evidence of the Carson volun teers. I have seen a good many men In London connected with pub lic affairs, and the noticeable thing was the perfect understanding be tween those connected with the Gov ernment and the opposition. Not onry-do they understand each other, but their differences are carried on with the same standards of respect and consideration as you would find among any intelligent men striving to promote the country's good." BOOSTER BANQUET. The boosters of the Columbia Athletic Club will have a big ban quet at the club house on East St. Catherine Btreet Monday night. Every member has the privilege to Invite a friend, which insures a rep resentative gathering. A splendid menu will be served and several well known speakers, besides a num ber of cabaret artists, will be pres ent to entertain the guests. This club, composed of Catholic young men, has been very successful, but small debt still remains on its handsome property, and efforts are being made to Increase the mem bership and burn the mortgage dur- ng the coming year. The club house is thoroughly equipped, and here the young men of that section of the city have an ideal place to spend their evenings and leisure time. SACRED HEART CHURCH.

No Oeneral Klectlon fntil Plural Voters Kill Has Heen Knacted. The Irish Leader Have Signified Their Approvul of the Vol unteer Movement. IRELAND IS WILD WITH JOY Whitsuntide has not been the usually cheerful English holiday. cables Hon. T. P. O'Connor from London. It opened under the over whelming shadow of the terrible disaster in the St. Lawrence river, grief over the tragedy being universal and deep. The Irish of Liverpool were terribly stricken, as the Empress of Ireland was the most popular vessel afloat with Liverpool IriBh sailors and firemen. Intensity of public sympathy reveals Itself In the magnitude and promptitude ot relief subscriptions. This tragedy and the spirit of va cation give pause to political activity In England, but Lloyd George's fighting speech broke in on the truce. Liberals everywhere are Immensely gratified by the def inite denial of the Intention of the Government to permit a general election this year. Rumor to the contrary has been so repeated and widespread that even the Liberals began to doubt and the prospect of losing the plural voters' bill, on which the heart of the Liberals is set, produced a general depression in LiiDeral ranks, now relieved bv Lloyd-George's definite and unmis takable pledge to continue this Par liament until the plural voter be comes a thing of the oast. Home rulers also are relieved, as the Tories uow are robbed of their last hope of preventing the final stage of the home rule struggle and the as sembly of the Irish Parliament by the turmoil and uncertain fortunes of an Immediate general election. Political tranquility In England Is in remarkable contrast with the feverish activity in Ireland. The nome rule bill was celebrated all over the country outside of Ulster with frenzied outbursts ot popular Joy. Every city, village and even hamlet had Its bonfires, processions, bands and triumphant speeches. Ulster Nationalists loyally sup pressed all demonstrations in obedi ence to the strong advice of Irish leaders to avoid any excuse to Orangemen to precipitate an out break of violence. This extraordin ary self-control and discipline heltfed to maintain the position of stale mate between the Government and the Orangemen in Ulster. Carson's blustering speeches are Interpreted as really meant to conceal the impossible position in which he has been maneuvered by Asqulth and Redmond. He has now no alternative between accepting such an amending bill as Asqulth and Redmond will offer or taking the tragic and Indeed impossible position of raising a rebellion. Car son knows that with the home rule bill now safe Asqulth's hands are free to suppress if necessary any rebellion in a few hours and Lloyd George's last pronouncement re moves the final hope of Carson that Asqulth can be bullied Into any weakness such as a general election. But the most momentous devel opment of Whitsuntide In Ireland is the new departure ot the National ist volunteer movement. - Without any official announcement or offi cial action the Irish leaders have signified their approval of the move ment. Seversl members of the Irish party atteuded the enrollment ot volunteers. This final approval removed the last obstacle to the spread of the movement, as unques tioning confidence In Redmond's leadership held back many thou sands until his attitude was known, lest the movement should In any way embarass him and his col leagues, whose statesmanship had so splendidly vindicated Itself. In the present unassailable posi tion ot the home rule bill Redmond s final 'blessing of the volunteer movement has given it an extraord inary impetus and literally thou sands now join the ranks. All politics, British as well as Irish, now are confronted with another and most formidable factor in the solu tion of the Irish problem. It Is significant, of the spirit of this new factor that the Nationalists now demand vehemently the withdrawal of the proclamation against the Importation of arms, though this measure originally was intended against Orangemen. CONDITION' NOW CRITICAL. The Rev. Father Louis C. Ohle, paytor of St. Martin's church, Shelby and Gray streets, has been very HI at the rectory for the past three weeks, suffering from a severe at tack of rheumatism, to which he has been subject for several years. His friends throughout the city and diocese will be deeply grieved to learn that rheumatic asthma devel oped the first of the week and It Is feared that he has suffered the loss of his voice. Father Ohle Is a widely known priest and Inquiries as to his condition are being constantly re ceived at the rectory.
