PRICE FIVE CENTS. El Mm MISI CAN REJOICED Were lllocrnlana When Vicar General Cronln Dedicated Home. State and County President and Large Gathering Witness . Ceremonj-. Hon. Kdward J. O'Brien Ie llvered Interesting and In structlve Address. DIVISION 3 GETS HIGH PRAISE Last Sunday was Indeed a record making day for the Hibernians of Louisville and Kentucky, one that will ever stand out in the history of the Ancient Order. Early In the afternoon and long before the hour arranged for the dedication of the imposing new home of Division 3, located at Eighteenth and Portland avenue, the members, friends, neigh bors and well wishers of the grand old order thronged the grounds and handsome building. When the as semblage was called to order at 3:30 o'clock by President John M. Maloney the seating capacity of the pretty meeting hall was taxed to its full capacity and many stood in the ante-rooms throughout the laterest- ing and inspiring exercises that fol lowed. The meeting was opened with a very appropriate prayer by the County Chaplain, the Very Rev. James P. Cronin, Vicar General of the . diocese. After President Maloney had explained the object and purpose 'of the meeting State President Patrick J. Welsh and County President William J. Con nelly were Introduced, and in their addresses they congratulated the members and committees who were In charge of the work of establish ing a permanent home for the Hi bernians of Louisville and Jefferson county. Letters of congratulations and good wishes from Hibernian officials and members throughout the State were then read. The principal speaker of the oc casion was Hon. E. J. O'Brien, one of the leading members of Division 3, who delivered an interesting and Instructive address. After first re-1 citing the history of the division from its organization on October 16, 1884, up to the present time, giving the names ol the charter members and a long list of Presidents In the years that followed, he commended the spirit that prevailed and pro duced such gratifying results. Mr. O'Brien dwelt at length upon the progress of home rule for Ireland, stating that it was at last an assured fact, no matter how vigorously or bitterly it might still be opposed by the House of Lords. , He enumerated (n an entertaining manner the great and lasting benefits that would flow to the people of the Irish race in securing home rule, and declared that the opposition of the Ulsterites was of little or no significance. He closed his address by reading a por tion of Robert Emmet's statement from the dock, and said it was now possible and almost timely to write his epitaph according to his last wishes. Very Rev. Father Cronln blessed the new home and delivered a splen did address to the member illus trating how the home of Division 8 was a glowing example of what was possible when there was unity and harmony in their work. He earnestly requested the members to ever thus work together in peace and good will, urging them to be true to the principles of the order, and it would necessarily follow that they would be good members, good citizens and good Catholics. Father Cronln's instruction's will be strictly observed, and it is re gretted that his address could not have been heard by every member of the order. Upon motion of Magis trate P. T. Sullivan a rising vote of thanks was tendered the County Chaplain for the great favor he had bestowed upon the division. Ex-National Director George J. Butler and ex-County President Thomas Qulnn, of the home building committee, told how the great work was accomplished and of the present financial status of Division 8. Pat rick Holly, the oldest President of Division 3; James P. iBarry, of Di vision 1, and several other mem bers. Including Martin Ford, one of the charter members, made - short but encouraging talks, following which the meeting was closed with prayers. The remarks of the speak ers during the entire afternoon were received with ringing applause, and It was perhaps the most enthusiastic gathering of Hibernians ever held here. SILVER Jl llll.EK. The three days' celebration of Father Joseph A. Tble's silver Jubilee as a priest was observed by the citizens or Tell City, Ind., Cath olic and non-Catholic alike. The celebration began Sunday and eon tlnued until Tuesday, when the line of march was through the principal street to 8t. Paul's church, where the Jubilee mass began at 9:10. Many persons were unable to get In' side the doors. The celebrant, the Rev. Joseph A. Thle, was assisted at the mass by the Rev. Basil Heuuler, of Jasper, Ind., as assistant priest; the Rev. I. M. Ahiuann, of Coving ton, as deacon; the lie v. J Scheefers. of Troy, Ind., as sub deacon: the Rev, Francis Schaub, or Kockport. aHr"Hter 'or cere- monies. The Rev. J. J. Hlldebrand, of Evansvllle, preached the Jubilee ermon. In all twenty-one priests were present from cities for the Jubilee services. In the evening public reception was held at the Tell City Opera House, where praise was showered upon the Rev. Joseph A. Thle. Factories and stores closed to oar tribute to Father Thle and houses along the route of the parade were decorated. He was presented with a purse of SI 00 and other valuable tokens. DEDICATION TOMORROW. Preparations for the dedication of the beautiful new 8t. Aloyslus church at Pewee Valley, which takes place Sunday morning at 10:30 o'clock, have been In progress for some time past. The pastor, Rev. Father E. W.

Commencement exercises bringing to a close another successful year for Presentation Academy, con ducted by the Sisters of Charity, were held in the school hall, at Fourth and Breckinridge streets, Monday morning.

Oltl'II.IXS' FOURTH OF JULV. Those good people who are Inter ested in the success . of the big Fourth of July picnic to be given for the benefit of the orphans are most urgently urged to be present at the meeting to be held at Ber trand Hall next Monday night. A great deal of work is necessary, committees are to report, duties ar ranged, etc. In this laudable undertaking there Is no place for laggards, and every church worker is confidently expected to come forward and offer his or her services without further solicitation. There's work for all. The picnic will be held on the splendid grounds of the St. Vincent Orphanage, Pane and Cavewood, in Crescent Hill, where there Is plenty of room, plenty of shade, and every convenience for such an affair. With united effort this can be made the largest and most successful affair of the kind ever held in this city. But it is going to take hard work and plenty of it, and the volunteers are ex pected to be on hand. In fact it is the work of volunteers In church enterprises that amounts to very much a task In the cause of Chris tianity done under compulsion is very rarely fruitful. So come out to Bert rand Hall Monday night, which will be an Indication that you are ready, willing and anxious to have a part In this great picnic for a great cause. The -time is none too long for the vast amount of work to be done. Begin right now to ar range with your friends to "spend the Fourth of July in a delightfully cool and shady spot with and for the orphans. ItUlLDIN'tt AT ST. MEINKAD'S With the completion of the new library building of St. Meinrad's Abbey at St. Melnrad, Ind., only sev eral weeks distant, work on the magnificent new seminary has been begun. Already a large part of the massive stone foundations are laid, and it is expected that the new struc ture will be ready for occupancy In three years. The new seminary will be 200 feet long, forty feet wide and four stories high, with a large base ment. The walls and foundations are beiug built of sandstone, quarried by the monks on their own grounds. All the floors and the root will be of re-enforced concrete, with red Span Inn tile covering for the roof and hollow tile partitlous throughout making the building absolutely fire proof. Tbs halls and basement will be of Veuetiuu morale. The new em I nary will adjoin the present vol lege building, facing west and ex tending to the entrance of the church. The new library is four stories high and strictly fireproof. The walls are of stone, with re-enforced concrete floors an roof. On the first Xloor will be an oratory for the lay brothers, and on the sec ond the chapter hall of the abbey. The third and fourth floors are for the library proper, wherein the mon astery's thirty thousand volumes, many of them dating far back Into the sixteenth century, and some even earlier, will be safely housed. DEI J VERS GREAT ORATIOX. Lieut. Gov. McDermott delivered a great oration on "Eternal Public Problems" before the Phi Beta Knnnn. and th Slana Chi Iota So cieties of the University of Illinois at Urbana on Monday. A large audience was gathered In the uni versity auditorium to hear the Ken- tucklan, who traced the analogy or the public problems of today ihrnnirh fho nnlltlc.nl hlntnrlpn of Athens and Rome. Gov. McDermott sounded a warning against a too rnartv anil confident embrace of every cure-all that was proposed for public ills. Many of these devices, heralded- today as new political ex pedients, ne said Burn as tne lntia tlve and referendum and recall are almost as old as political history ltseir. Gov. McDermott deplored the disposition to alter materially the Federal constitution and the constitutions of the States. CATHOLIC KNIGHTS. Interesting and enthusiastic was the monthly meeting of the Central Committee, C. K. of A., on Friday night of last week In St. John's Hall, Clay and Walnut. Owing to business engagements President Ben Kruse was absent, but his place was ac ceptably filled by Capt. Oscar Maier. Reports from several branches show that there Is considerable activity and that a number of applications are awaiting examination Derore certificates are issued. Communi cations were received from the Su preme Secretary showing the splen did financial condition of the Cath olic Knights of America. The mortuary list showed a number of deaths In Louisville, whose bene ficiaries were paid Immediately upon the receipt of the death proofs. Short talks were made by r," M. Reichert upon the progress being made by the Uniform Rank, and Patrick Holly, of St. Patrick's branch. Charles Hill, Secretary Schulfen and Capt. Oscar Maler reported every arrangement perfected for the Tell City excursion, which proved to be a really en joyable affair.

For years he was a member of i.oly Trln Ity church, and also of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Alsace- Lorraine Society. .His funeral was held Tuesday morning from Holy Trinity church, many mourning friends and acquaintances attending the solemn obsequies. FROST FOR MILES. Nelson A. Miles lectured in Mil waukee under the auspices of ths Guardians of Liberty, of which dis reputable organization be is the Na tional President, and the results were most disappointing. The audi ence was not large, the Guardians of Bigotry not being able to scare up any American soldier or representa tive citizen to preside. For this duty the best they could do was to find a foreigner, a Lutheran mlnlter named Dallman. Although Gen. Miles sullies uniform by permit ting himself to be identified with the uimuvory bunch, the Milwaukee Citizen says be Is unwilling to do ths dirty work of the Guardians. CLONING EXERCISES. The closing eexreises of St. Leo's school at Highland Park will take place tomorrow night, beginning at 8 o'clock. The Sisters and pupils have arranged a really Interesting and excellent programme, one ttabt will iuclude several numbers well worth witnessing. Second Street cars stop at the school hall, and Father Fitzgerald and the Sisters In vite all their friends to attsud. POLITICS. Louisville Now the. Mecca For the Three Senatorial Can didates. Evening Post Attempts Imposs ible Task of Influencing Local Vote. Denver Man's Opinion of That City's Commission Form of (Internment. O'CONNOR A POPULAR SELECTION Early In the spring and before It was contended in these columns that there would be a light vote cast In the contest for the Democratic nom ination for United States Senator, especially In the country districts, principally on account of the primary date, August 1, being a busy time for the farmers and that the bulk of the vote would be cast in the cities, the developments of the last few weeks proving this without a doubt, the three candi dates, Gov. McCreary, ex-Gov. Beck ham and Congressman Stanley, all opening headquarters in Louisville and each making a bid for the vote here. Another point made at the time was that there was little in terest in the race by the Louisville Democracy, and the exact words in the opinion of a leading Democrat at that time were "that no one would lose sleep over the race." Repeat edly the Evening Post has attempted to prove this assertion wrong, con tending that the Democrats of Louis ville were falling all over themselves to support Beckham, and has daily repeated the assertion that a splen did organization waa being formed here in his interest, laying stress on the fact that Edward T. Tierney, Chairman of the Board of Safety, was one of the leaders, this being printed three or four time a week with the hope of awakening interest among city employes and also to convey the Impression that the city administration would support the Beckham-Haley cause. Right here, and without any bias In the matter, It can be stated that Mr. Tierney or no other man can deliver the vote of "the Louisville Democracy on a silver platter to the Beckham hosts, and in addition Mr. Tierney's official position should not be used to influence a single voter to support Beckham, If for no other reason than to practice what the Post formerly preached, that the Louisville Democracy should not be one-sided in State politics. Follow ing out this theory it would be suicidal on the part of the local or ganization or administration to flock to Beckham and make enemies of the McCreary and 6tanley ad herents, the former advice handed out by the PoBt being preferred to the present brand. Incidentally it might be remarked that W. W, Davies, who no later than last fall waa referring to all Democrats as Buckslaves, is a local Beckham leader, also ex-Chief of Police Haager, who was Beckham's selec tion for Chief under .Bingham, and decapitated Democratic policemen right and left the first day of hts appointment, without even giving them the formality of a trial. So it can hardly be expected that the present police officials and patrol men will support Beckham on Haager's account, even aided by the Post's dally statement that their executive bead, Mr. Tierney, is in that tame camp. The appointment of James O'Con nor as Receiver of the Jefferson Circuit Court by the seven Judges of the Circuit Court this past week was indeed a popular selection and one in which every Democrat feels proud. . Courteous, obliging, effi cient, are some of the qualities possessed by the appointee, and none are more appreciative of the honor than, his wide acquaintance of railroad men. upon whom "Jimmy has a special bold, his long con nection in the employ of the local roads winning him many friends among all. but especially among the boys who tolled In the shops and whom he was ever ready to assist and help In any way. The following extracts taken from a card In the Rocky Mountain News, of Denver, in regard to the commission form of government now being tried by that city, may be Interesting to Col. P. H. Callahan Henry Johnson, John Chandler an; other Progressive leaders woo worked unceasingly at Frankfort during the last legislative session In behalf of commission government for Louisville: I would like to express a few ex ceptions to our honorable City Com missloners' statements as appearing in the News. They are unanimous in saying that commission rule in Denver is a success, and give as alleged proofs of their economical Illusions the elimination of several unnecessary offices and employes but the refutation preceded their statement in a very forcible manner when, before the end of the year's experience with commission form of government, they established and still maintain unnecessary new de partments and sinecure positions with evident result of spending more than their appropriations for whimsical Innovations such as pub lic, lodging bouse, to encourage luzy bums coining to Denver (and then blume the police department), ap prourlatlou for the planting aud cultivation and supervision of vacant lots; "efficiency dark," "police in spector," $26,000 for a landscape gardener with a national reputation for the civic center and mountain Darks (810.000 for the reputation nd $5,000 for his work and ex penses), when several competent' Denver men would be glad to give us as satisfactory results for one- tenth of that amount. I worked sev eral months and voted for commis sion form of government and all of i its fairy adjuncts In hopes of lessen-1 ing our taxes and better'ng our civic I conditions, but our Commissioners have not yet made good; they have yet to show us practical economy in their business management of Den ver. While reflecting upon my twenty-two years' residence in this city, during which time our multi farious taxes have been developing Into a prospective typhoon of con fiscation, I verily believe we re formers have gone beyond the limit and we find that every succeeding city administration makes the last one look respectable. COLUMBIA CM'Il BANQUET. Monday night the Columbia Ath letic Club scored another success with its reception and banquet for n embers and visitors, who were present in large numbers. After a short time spent in inspection of the elegant club house and grounds President Ben Beckman, Secretaries Fox and Campion and Treasurer Brumleve led the way to the boun teously laden tables, where an ex cellent feast was enjoyed. Presi dent Beckman presided as toastmas ter and his every Introduction was greeted with laughter and ap plause. The first speaker was Will iam M. Higglns, who reviewed the history of the club from the begin ning to Its present formidable pro portions. Organized nine years ago the Columbia Athletic Club has steadily grown and today owns its own home, valued at over $5,000, on which there Is an Indebtedness of only $1,600, which will be cleared during the coming year. The prin cipal address was delivered by At torney J. J. Kavanagh, and was fre quently interrupted by rounds of applause. He spoke on the present day opportunities for young men in business and politics, and commend ed the spirit and enterprise of the officers and members of the club. Others called upon were Henry Campion. Bernard Brumleve, Will Fox, Peter Lehman, Emory Slater, Edward Brueggman, Henry scnuier. Urban Campion, Ed Fetter, Bud Robards and Andy Relss. RABBI ALFRED MOSES HERE. Rabbi Alfred G. Moses, a former well known Louisville young man and now pastor of the Temple Shaaria Shomayin, of Mobile, Ala., Is here on a vlelt-,. -and-during parU of his stay has been the guest of Attorney J. J. Kavanagh, these two having been speakers at the St. Pat rick's day banquet given in Mobile under the auspices of the A. O. H., and at which Dr. Moses remarked, after hearing one ' of the speakers gay that the home rule bill would automatically become a law after, a three-time passage, "that be was now a full-bred Irishman, having been present at three straight af fairs of that kind of the A. O. H." In a visit to the Kentucky Irish American office Dr. Moses spoke of the splendid feeling existing be tween the Jews and Catholics every where, and referred to the stirring times in 1895 when the A. P. A.'s in Louisville attempted to enlist the services of his father, the late Rabbi Adolph Moses, pastor of the Jewish Synagogue, then at Sixth and Broad way, Rabbi Moses rebuking the Imitation patriots who had come to see him by saying: "I have too long been a hare to turn hound now, this remark afterward beiug quoted widely. The present Dr. Moses takes quite an active interest In the progress of Mobile's municipal af fairs and, is prominently identified with many of the local political lead ers and statesmen. During his stay he has met many of his former schoolmates who had attended the public schools at Ninth and Mag azine and Fifth and Walnut streets, and some of his former instructors, all of whom have followed his career with Interest and pride. FEDERATION. The largest attendance for some time past greeted President Ganz, Secretary Dolan and the officers of the Catholic Federation at the reg ular monthly meeting, held in the Catholic Woman's Club building, An nouncement was made that at the next meeting copies of the recent ad dress of the Most Rev. John Ireland, Alrcbblshop of St. Paul, would be given all present. The routine busi ness was soon disposed of in order to hear the address of .the Rev. Oscar Ackermann,- D. C. L., and there was considerable disappointment when it was learned that Imperative calls rendered his presence impossible. President Ganz read a carefully pre pared and Instructive paper on the "Church and Science." dwelling at considerable length on the terrible results that follow the loss of faith. Dr. Gans read from the most reliable authorities and proved conclusively that the Catholic church bad ever fostered and advanced the arts, uusio and literature, aud especially the science of medicine. Henry A. Vonderbelde also delivered a stirring address, In which he expressed grati fication at the large attendance. He spoke earnestly for the young man, making a plea tor parish, diocesan and State organisation. Because of the hot weather there will be no lec tures until next September. MACKIN COUNCIL. Mackin Council had a well attend ed meeting Monday night, though ouly routine business was transacted. The committee arranging for the sunset excursion reported satisfac tory progress, and announced that with a flue eveulng this oua would be more succetsful than any bereto- fore given. During the, evening It developed that Cupid has again entered the ranks of Mackin with an intention to stay for awhile. Last week Edward Dillon deserted the ranks of the bachelors, while this week Fred J. 8chuler became a benedict, and rumor has it that George Conder will also take a partner for life In the near future. This leaves Charles Raldy and George Slmonls still eager and wait ing for some girt to sail the matri monial sea with them, and to the list might be added the names of William Link, Frank Lanahan, Rob ert Osborne, Dick Andrlott and Guy Nevln, who are approaching the fourth degree in the Bachelor's Club. SACRED HEART ACADEMY. Commencement exercises at the Sacred Heart Academy, Crescent Hill, were held Wednesday, graced by the presence of Bishop O'Donag hue and many of the clergy.

Fitzgerald and his congregation are devoting their time to preparations for the dedica tion of the new St. Leo s church at Highland Park, which will take place with impressive and beautiful ceremony on Sunday morning, July 5. St. Leo's Is one of the numerous churches erected in this diocese by Father Fitzgerald, and the fire that almost destroyed the edifice was a severe blow to pastor and people. With the spirit and zeal that has marked their past they at once got together, and the result is that they will soon have a larger and hand somer church, one that will com pare favorably with those of much larger parishes. Bishop O'Donag hue will conduct the dedicatory ceremony, assisted by many of the clergy of the diocese. Father Fitz gerald has had a hard struggle dur ing the past year, and therefore de serves encouragement and support from all Catholics. UNITED IX MARRIAGE. The wedding of Miss Gertrude M.

NATIONALIST Volunteer Organization Has Influence L'pon the Itritlsh Public. Introduces a Momentous Factor . Into the Whole Irish Situation. Hlfast lias Ilcgun to Feel the Severe Pressure of Present , Uncertainty. FINAL CONDITIONS IMPOSE PEACE We have had a week of sleepy tranquility in the House of Com mons and scarcely a mention, ex-. cept Incidentally, of the Irish ques tion, but the Irish question still haunts everybody's thoughts and every one watches with greatest scrutiny every speech or incident which may seem to forecast the uncertain future, says Hon. T. P. O'Connor in his weekly cablegram. The outstanding factor of the week is Redmond's open approval of the Nationalist volunteer movement. Everybody recognizes that this in troduces a momentous ' new factor Into the whole situation. The argu ment that refusal of home rule in volved dangers quite as real to peace In Ireland as that threatened by the Ulster Orangemen now is realized by English opinion, which was rather inclined to accept the view hammered in by the Tories that, be cause Southern Ireland presented such a contrast in its tranquility to Northern effervescence, home rule had ceased to be as passionately demanded as ever. The National volunteers produced further effect by proving to the Orangemen that they will not, if they begin attacks on luster Catholics, have to con front unarmed and unorganized victims, as In the riots of two years ago. The Tories also are brought face to face with some of the Inevitable consequences that follow Carson'a appeal to rifles. By curious and ex pected contradiction the Tories of England already are beginning to demand the suppression of the Na tional volunteers, forgetful of their patronage of the similar movement by the Orange volunteers. A further factor which helps towards a settle ment of the Irish question, by pro ducing a reaction against Carsonlsm, Is the continued ferocity of the -suffragists, which now presents to the English public the enormous growth In lawlessness which Carsonlsm in volves. A further Indication of this disastrous change in the old Eng Ish attitude of law-abldlngness waa given during the debate on the new Insurance act for the unemployed by the open threat of labor leaders that when a slump followed the present gigantic trade boom the workingmen without employment and without food would not accept conditions with the same resigna tion as in the past, and would fol low the example of Carson's Orange men. Thus though-Carson's speeches in Ulster and Bonar Law's last speech In Scotland breathe the same old party fury, and though the die-hards are at present in the ascendency in the Tory party, shrewd observers persist in believing that the whole struggle will end in some settlement In the absence of firm leadership among the Tories, Bonar Law being much discredited. It is still be lieved that Carson would welcome a solution, but finds his difficulty in the greater violence of his own fol lowers. There are rumors of dis sensions in the Orange forces. Some extremists already are beginning to suspect that Carson may agree to some settlement they detest, but other forces from a different direc tion make Carson's position more difficult. Business Belfast at last is beginning to feel the severe pres sure of this uncertainty, and this is accentuated by the great interrup tion of business relations with Southern Ireland. It is announced in the London Tory organ that re cently five linen merchants of Bel fast have failed. It Is difficult to forecast what precise form settlement finally will take. It may be peace. It may be rupture. On one hand the die-hards may get the House of Lords to re ject the amending bill in the hope of provoking a rebellion In Ulster and thereby forcing tbe Government t: an immediate general election, and. Tory organizers certainly are pre paring for an election in July. 1 re main convluced 'that the amending bill will be passed with Carsonlte amendments lu the House of Lords; that there will be haggling for some weeks and that ultimately the uni versal feeling in favor of settlement will bring the party leaders into conference. Including perhaps Red mond and Carson, and that a srheme will be hammered out which at once will save the face of Ulster and guarantee liberty aud unity to Ire land. But violent speeches and some violent scenes may occur between this moment and the ultimate hour. These things will be exaggerated, but the supreme and final conditions Impose final peace. SUNSET EXCURSION. Macklu Social Club will give Hiiimwt excursion on the Steamer Corona on Saturday afternoon, July 11. Boat will leuve foot of Flrvt street at 5 o'clock and there will be refreshments served on tbe boat.
