PRICE FIVE CENTS. EE PEEVED. The Junior Order Perturbed Over.Keeent Fraternal Day . Flr.r.le. Sore on the Mayor, Chief of Police and This Publication In Particular: Scorca Its nrother Members For Hiding Behind Telegraph Poles. MAD ATiBINGHAM AND DAVIES The local Junior Order of United American Mechinlcs are etill real peeved over the Fraterntl day flxxle and are still busy holding Indigna tion meetings, passing resolutions, etc., condemning everyone that failed to march or 'nke part In the celebration at the Armory. They are bo mad at the Kentucky Irish American tor the expose of their little scheme to get a lot of free advertising out of a supposed fraternal day celebration that in every other line of their "Banner Builder" and "Louisville Council Booster" they veat their rpleen on the editors of this paper, but at the same time pay a handsome compli ment to its power and influence, when it Is taken Into consideration that the Kentucky Irish American was the only paper in this section which opposed the Fraternal day celebration, and that opposition was due to the fact that It was planned to hold it under Junior Order aus pices and with Junior motives con trolling. The following Is an ex tract from their bulletin relating to the narade: The Juniors showed up well, but could have done better. HOWfcVRR, WK ARK NOT OOIXG TO OHIIK OUR WEAK-KNEED BROTH EKM WHO HID REHIXD TELEPHONE POLES AND liOOKEH ON. FOR FEAR OF BEIXO SEEN IN PUBLIC WITH THEIR UNITED BROTHERS. A guilty conscience needs no ac cuser, and next year courage will take place of moral cowardice anil a demonstration of Juniors will parade the streets of Ixnilsvllle that will make our patriotic friends of . the Emerald Me who have thrown so many buckets of cold water on this -first - attempt to grasp fraternal hands, regardless of political Idiosyncrasies, sit np and take no tice Notice the above, referring to the weak-kneed brothers who hid be hind telephone poles, which to an outsider looks as If some of the Juniors were a little ashamed of their membership or the grand patriotic order as they usually style It, but the public at largo would hardly expect the country's self-appointed defenders to hide behind telephone poles, which seems to he a habit, especially if we were at war. The writer even singles out one Junior, and says: "Stogie Rich Griffith was seen hiding behind a telegraph pole on Fraternal day. Shame oh you, Richard." Then re ferring to the drill team's part he grows flowery as follows: The drill team came in sturdy profile, looking manly and de termined, that gave credit to their respective councils. Then our boys In special white, emblematic or purity, that put the lie to the dark lantern charge by well-meaning, but misguided, citizena who are long oa gab, but short on the essential gray matter, their small ego, compels them to make noise to attract at ten Uon that they really exist. Then came the rank and file, the bulwark of modern society, the members in citizens clothes, afoot, auto and hacks. Notice that last little bouquet about the bulwark of society, which Is humorous when, as was called at tention to in these columns, not a dozen In line being known to anyone along the line of march, and even the name of the writer does not appear In this year's directory. But for real pique look at this slam at Mayor Buschemeyer, Attorney W. W. Dsvins, Judge R. W. Bingham and Chief of Police Liaduey: The Honorable Mayor, W. W. Device and Robt. W. Bingham failed to show up. Perhaps they may ex plain some time la the future for this slap at fraternity when seeking a place in some political gift of S90.04M) fraternal brothers. The Chief of Police did not honor this orcaaion with his presence on a pre text of too much work at the Htate Fair. However, other parade have been held, and no business waa too argent to find our police force a line. We did not need them, how ever, for the orders ere well dis ciplined and can take care of them- selves, but we extended the rourtey to Indicate our high appreciation ot our public servants. Their appreciation of our public servants is pretty good when every one realizes how the Juniors were busy at the last municipal election trying to get rid of these same pub lic servants, and ibelr threat of not supporting Mayor Buschemeyer and the other gentlemen is pretty weak, as they did their "durnd'st" to beat Buschemeyer, and they will not support the other gentlemen men tioned unless subscribing to their principles of proscription. Here is auother little tribute to the Kentucky Irish American, which we tske pleHiure in reprinting, snd wish to call attention to the. fact that the prominent men referred to sre limited, the only one mentioned In the official organ tof this society being Col. P. H. Callahan, to whom this paper paid Its respects last week: Owing to vicious attacks having been made on the i. O. IT. A. M. and Banner Home In particular, by a certain publication in this city that has aroused the Indignation of not only the Juniors, hut other orders belonging to the Fraternal Associa tion, steps have been taken to cor rect such savage attacks upon a movement intended to boost - fra ternal work. Ijetters have been re ceived from men of prominence repudiating any connection with this paper claiming to represent certain religious Ideas. The J. O. U. A. M. Is in the field to stay, and Banner Council has nothing to nay In private that it will not back np in public. Jas. Pendragon. This Is pretty tansy talk of the Juniors, but In reply it can be stated that whenever a movement is started with the purpore nnd Intent of ostracizing Catholics, no in the recent Fraternal day plans, the Kentucky Irish American will again be to the front In denouncing the perpetrators, and If the recent affair was a Fraternal day for all societies WHY WERK THR CATHOLIC FRA TERNAL ORDERS' IGNORED?: Then, again. If all were to meet on an equal footing why were the pre liminary meetings called In the home of an organization whose members have as much use for members of the Catholic religion as the devil lias for holy water, the principal leaders of which have carried their , antipathy In politics, business and . everywhere else? Pretty near the same condition of affairs existed In the recent Covington celebration, the Junior Order attempting to monopolize the parade feature and hog all the glory, which caused such a protest from other Covington so- cieties that when matters were ad- j justed satisfactorily the Juniors be came Indignant, taking their doll rags home and refusing to partlcl-J pate. As stated befere, If there is j to be a fraternal celebration In Louisville next year, let It be for. all societies regardless of creed, and tiny attempt to the contrary will be met by hearty opposition In these columns, which as the Juniors con cede compelled some of their mem bers to hide behind telegraph poles this year. INTO NEW HOME. Members and visitors who attend ed the meeting of Division 1, A. 0. II., on Thursday night of last week, the first held in their new home in I he Liederkranz building, Sixth and Walnut, were pleased with the. hall and expressed approval of the change of quarters. President Tarpy occupied the chair and reported the proceedings of the State convention. Chairman Cleary reported none on the sick list, and after the regular business had been transacted Ser geant John Maloney. President of Division 3; Councilman Charles Finegan and Daniel O'Keefe, Secre tary of the County Board, were called upon. They congratulated the division on its new home and pre dicted that success would follow the change. Thomas Keenan and Dan iel McCarthy also delivered short addresses, in which were kind words tor the new State officers and a tribute to County President Con nelly. They counseled unity and fellowship among the members and urged their hearers to become active in the work of arousing interest In the division and order. President Tarpy, before closing the meeting, pledged the new State Board his best efforts and his time for organiza tion, saying he will leave nothing undone that will tend toward in creasing the membership every where. KNIGHTS OF ST. JOHN. St. Michael's Commandery, Knights of St. John, turned out In large numbers last Sunday morning at St. Peter's church, where the members attended their anniversary high mass and received holy com munion. The Rev. Father Edmund Kaiser, the pastor, was the celebrant of the mass, and in the sermon dwelt eloquently on Knighthood, which exists today with but slight variation from that of the past ages. Urging the Knights to be firm in the faith, they should ever prove loyal and serve their God and coun try. Following the afternoon ves pers the Knights assembled in St Peter's Hall, when handsome gold medals were awarded to Col. Theo. Poppe, H. II. Schneider, Gua Ober hausen, Frank Howe and Leopold Stoeth, who had been members for twenty-five years. The presentation was made by Father Kelser, who said the medals were but an outward sign ef the heartfelt feelings of the members, who joined him in the hope that the five thus honored would receive the diamond medal of the Knights. The anniversary was concluded with a social session thai all present enjoyed. 1 COVINGTON. There is every prospect that the big torchlight parade to be given under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus at Covington on the eve ning of Discovery day will And a splendid representation' from the various fraternal organizations of the city. The idea has met with a hearty response and the preliminary meetings are being attended by large numbers of delegates. The Knights have decided to take the last plane in the parade, while the Foresters have asked for ths second last place. The K. of C. division will be headed by John Weber's band. In addition to the organizations previously pub lished the K. of 0. committee has sent out Invitations to other frater nal societies. Including the Red Men, the Macabees, the Moose, Ben Hur, Catholic Knights of America and others. OCTOBER The Month That All Catholics Devote to the Holy Rosary. Impressive Kellgious Services For Tomorrow at St. Louis lie rt rand's. President "Wilson Asks That All loin and Pray For Peace. GLORIOUS SIGN OF REDEMPTION October Is the month of the Holy Rosary, during which this, the fore most among the practices of piety which the church has approved in honor of Christ's Virgin Mother, is said every evening In nearly all our churches. No formulary of prayer has done more excellent service for the church militant in her efforts to withstand the virulent attacks of her enemies from within, no less than from without the fold, than the rosary. We -owe to It not alone the victory of the medieval church over the Alblgenslnn heresy, but also tha triumph of the faith In Ireland against the allurements of error and the persecutions of the penal code. In Geiimany, too, the rosary has been the people's comfort In time of trial. The Feast of the Holy Rosary, in stituted by Pope S. Pius V., recalls to us the victory won by the Chris tian army over the Turks at Lepanto, on October 7, 1571. It is always celebrated on the first Sunday in October. In Louisville the most elaborate and impressive celebration will take place at St. Louis Ber trand's church. At the solemn vespers there will be a parade of the sodalities and children carrying fif teen beautiful banners and present ing a scene but seldom witnessed. President Wilson has also nBked that Rosary Sunday be observed throughout the United States as a day of prayer for the restoration of pence, and therefore the attendance tomorrow should Include every Catholic and our churches should be filled to their capacity. Many will ask, what Is the rosary? You smile, but do you know? The grains of which It Is composed It matters little whether they be pearl or coral, ivory or wood -merely serve to count tha number of prayers to sustain and fix the attention of the mind and heart by sensible signs; but the cross at tached to them Is a sign of strength, life and salvation the glorious sign of redemption a sign ever memorable for Christians. Let ub bear the words 'of Lacordaire the eagle of the pulpit of Notre Dame de Paris in his life of St. Dominic, the Inspired author of the devotion of the rosary: "The con ferences ot the rosary are multiplied beyond number; there Is hardly a Christian in the world that does not possess, under the name of the beads, a portion of the rosary. Who has not heard at eventide the grave voice of peasants reciting the Ave Maria In two choirs? Who has not met processions of pilgrims passing through their fingers the grains of the rosary, and charming the length ot their journey by the alternative repetition of the name of Mary? Whenever anything becomes per petual and universal It necessarily contains a mysterious harmony with the needs and the destinies of man. The rationalist smiles to see a pro cession of men pass by reciting the same words over and over again. He that Is enlightened by a better light understands that love has but one word, and thU in saying It for ever It never repeats." Imagine if you can a formula of prayer more universal, easier and better suited to the capacity of all, more sublime, and at the sacne time more simple. The rosary Is a memorial, an abridgment of all Christianity; it is the breviary of all pious laics; It is an alphabet for simple souls, for children and for good old people. But for the learned, for men of genius, for those that wish to meditate deeply, it is a sublime book, the vastest com pendium of theology; it is an im mense and unfathomable sea, like the mysteries it commemorates. The rosary is fit, some one wlfl say, only for children, devotees, simple and ignorant persons. What! a St. Dominic, founder ot the Order of Friars Preachers, celebrated tor bis profound learning and his elo quent preaching St. Dominic re cited the rosary and he found in it more .than - bis intelligence could fathom and bis heart contain. What! St. Thomas Acqulnas, the angelical doctor, the eagle of theol ogy, who had fathomed the depths of metaphysics, who had gathered up and Christianized all that was true and beautiful in pagaa antiq uity be who is even to this day considered the loftiest and vastest human intelligence. St. Thomas of Acqulnas recited the rosary, and he found therein all the sub limity of his genius. What! Father Lacordaire, that magnificent Intelli gence, that noble heart, that thun dering and sympathetic orator, that captivating apostle of enthusiastic ind studious youth', wore his rosary at his girdle; be recited It, as did St. Domlnio and St. Thomas, and he found In it an abyss for his wind snd an ocean for 1 Is heart.

Her funeral took place Wednesday morning, when requiem high mass, celebrated by Father George Connor, who also preached the funeral ser mon and paid a kindly and well merited tribute td the memory of the deceased. A large . numbef of deeply sym pathetic friends attended the funeral mass of Mrs. Lina E. Stutz, which was celebrated Wednesday morning In St. Brigld's church. Five months ago her husband, Oscar Stutz, was called to his eternal rest, and friends noticed that the grief of her heart never knew surcease until death. Mrs. Stutz was a native of Germany, but came to Louisville when a girl. She is survived by two sons, Oscar Stutz, who Is in the wall paper business, and Frank M. Stutz, President of the Stratton & Terstegge Company; two daughters, Mrs. Josephine Schlndler and Mrs. Lulu Bowes, and eight grandchil dren. SURPRISE" FOR MEMBERS.- The members of Division 4, A. 0. H., were given the surprise of their lives on Monday evening, when on entering their quarters In Bertrand Hall they found that since their last meeting the hall had been renovated, painted and decorated and electric lights Installed with two chandeliers of handsome design, the improve ments making It one ot the prettiest and most convenient halls In the city. Reports on the recent State convention were made by the dele gates and addresses were made by County President W. J. Connelly and John M. Maloney, President of Divis ion 3, both discussing the proceed ings of the convention and the changes in the by-laws that were adopted. The following list of alternates to the county convention were chosen: M. J. McDermott, Fred Mooney, J. J. Score, L. D. Meaney and Thomas Farrell. The convention will be held at Bertrand Hall on Sunday afternoon, October 11, and will convene at 2 o'clock. SOUNDS STRANGE. Those who for years read with in terest the cablegrams of T. P. O'Connor, the Irish home rule leader in England, are 'surprised over his strange utterances since England declared war. O'Connor has evidently abandoned the iTish volun teers and aligned himself with the EnglUh soldiery. His former ad mirers will find It hard to believe the following, which he sent the Sunday press from London: In Liverpool last Monday night 14,000 people, mostly Tories, greeted with the same enthusiasm Winston Churchill, F. E. Smith and myself. Ireland becomes more fiercely anti-German daily since the outrage of Rbelms followed Louvaln. A few worthless cranks, who never did a stroke of real work in Ireland and obstructed the Irish party at every step and did their utmost to prevent a home rule victory, will shriek, but they represent not a half of 1 per cent, of the population". They are exhausting the patience of Redmond and all Ireland. They soon will disappear amid popular execra tion or go with the mighty tide ot Irish anti-German sentiment. IRELAND INVITED. An Irish flavor will be given to the centenary celebrations of the In dependence of the South American republics, Argentina and Chile. Ireland Is Invited to participate In the celebrations In 1916, and a Com missioner from Argentina, T. J. Dunne, has arrived in Ireland to collect memorials of Admiral Will lam Brown, who was born in Fox ford, County Mayo. Among the ex hibits will be photographs of Foxford and of the bouse In which the naval hero was born. Chile will also send to Ireland for memorial of O'HIgglns, O'Brien, Lynch and other nsvsl and military heroes of the liberation of that State. The Irish-born population of Argentina Is 40.000, and there are several bnndreds of Irishmen In Chile also including professors In the Uni versity of Santiago. BALTIMORE American Federation of Catholic Societies Hold Annual Convention. Bishop Sell rem bs Denounces At titude of Secretary of State. Immense Parade Tuesday Ite- viewed by Cardinal and Many Bishops. TRIBUTE TO CARDINAL GIBBONS Unity of action to accomplish the purposes and aims of the organlza tlon was the watchword at all of the gatherings held during the first day of the thirteenth annual convention of the American Federation of Catholic Societies at Baltimore. The principal event was the opening ot the convention on Sunday with a Pontifical mass at the Cathedral. Bishop Owen B. Corrigan was the celebrant of this mass, and Cardinal Gibbons, visiting Bishops, Mon- signori and priests, as well as many seminarians and acolytes, were in the sanctuary. Bishop Joseph Schrembs, ot Toledo, created a stir in the crowded edifice when, in the course of his sermon he denounced in un sparing terms the attitude of Secre tary of State Bryan toward condi tions in Mexico, and the alleged failure of Bryan to put Into practice those principles he has so often out lined In brilliant rhetoric. Bishop Schrembs began his ser mon with a warm tribute to Cardinal Ciibbons and to Baltimore, which he styled the cradle of the Catholic church in America. Gradually he led up to his point. "We must get away from petty selfishness," he said. "We must get away from the narrow parochial bonds; we must even loose sight of diocesan de marcation. Our endeavors and our spirit musts be as broad as that charity dispensed to us by our Maker. We read In the papers today of some great wrongs being suffered by peoples of other lands. We re mark how sorry we are for them and then pass on to the next item of news. To show you what organized effort can do," continued the Bishop, "I will give an Illustration. About a year ago a Jew, In far-away Russia, waa accused of-'ritual mur der' that is, he was charged with taking the lite of a Christian child that be anight use the blood In a religious ceremony. When this charge was laid, the poor Jew found a Government only too ready to give credence to the charge. It waa foreordained he should suffer the penalty ot death. , Then, what a righteous indignation stirred the world! What a storm of protest! Men of all faiths and - men of no faith were appealed to by members of the Jewish faith the world over. It was their sense of justice and fairness that was appealed to. And the cry was heard. That solitary Jew was released, and the blot of ritual murder wiped from the escutcheon of the Jewish race. "Let me pursue this Illustration further. In Mexico, not one man, but thousands upon thousands ot men and women have been outraged in their sacred religious convictions. Churches have been closed and de stroyed. Priests and other relig ious have been exiled, tortured and in some instances brutally mur dered. Nuns, devoted women who have sacrificed their lives In the service of their fellow creatures, have been taken from their cloisters and handed over for what is worse than death to the shameful lust of a brutal soldiery. "Where are those other powers who stand sponsor for those In authority in Mexico today. Who prevent other nations from coming in, yet do nothing theuuselvee?'! Then it was that Bishop Schrembs made his reference to Bryan and the Cross of Gold speech, when ha exclaimed "a political genius, now, In authority in the direction ot the affairs ot our country, cried out several years ago, in a moment of political exultation: 'You shall not press down the crown of thorns upon the brow of labor; you shall not cruelty mankind upon the cross of gold!" When that speech wss uttered I applauded and remarked: 'Well done.' But, In this day. I am tempted to say to the political sentus: 'Here indeed is a splendid field for translating rhetoric into action.' The Federation of Catholic Societies should become fully con scious of its duty to aid the down trodden. To promote justice and to give protection to the outraged." After the mass Cardinal Gibbons delivered the Papal blessing to ths delegates after making a few re marks. In which he praised Bishop Schrembs for his address and wel comed the visitors to Baltimore. In the afternoon a session of the Social Service Commission was held with Bishop Muldoon presiding, when reports showing the growth of the social service, work were read, B'shop Donahue preached at the vpers at night, and after the mass for deceased members the conven tion was formally opened Monday morning. Tuesday night the feature was the grand concert of t.OOO voices, and on Tuesday ths monster narade was held, passing la review before Cardlnsl Gibbons snd many Bishops, the Governor, Msyor and large numbers of distinguished per sonages. ELABORATE ANNIVERNARV. With splendid and Impressive religious ceremony the silver jubilee of the founding of the St. John 8ick Benevolent Society was celebrated last Sundsy at St. Vincent de Paul's church, Shelby and Oak streets, more than 300 members and friends of the society participating. The celebra tion began with a Jubilee high mass at 6:30 o'clock in the morning, when the members received holy com munion In a body. Father Thome was the celebrant of the mass, and also of the vespers In the afternoon, when the blessing of the handsome new silk flag of the society took place. Rev. Father Rudolph Ruff, formerly of 8t Vincent de Paul's but now pastor of St. Patrick's at Stlthton, preached a patriotic ser mon on the flag and its significance, urging his hearers to never fail in their duty to their country and their church. The anniversary con cluded with a sumptuous banquet at' 8 o clock In the evening, at which John Dodt, the first President and only living cnarter member, pre sided most happily as toastmaster. Right Rev. Bishop O'Donaghue and other members of the clergy and a number of prominent citizens were the guests of honor. When justice had been done the menu responses to toasts were made by Rev. Father Berreshelm. Lieut. Gov. McDermott, Benedict Elder and Edward J. Reins, for the past twelve years President of the society. This society was or ganized In 1889 by the Rev. Father John Heissing and has a membership now of over 200 men. During Its existence the St. John Society has done n Incalculable amount of charity work and Its Influence has been widely felt. GREAT HOLY SAME RALLY. The annual rally of the Holy Name societies of Campbell and Kenton counties was held last Sun day at Bellevue. Indoor exercises were held In the morning at St. Anthony's church, while the great outdoor services were conducted In Spink's ball park. The parade con sisted of seven divisions, each headed by a band. Over 12,000 men were in the parade, headed by the city officials, police and fire depart ments and the Grand Marshal and his staff, and marched over the prin cipal streets of Bellevue and Dayton. Rev. I. M. Ahmann, of Covington, delivered the principal address of the day. Judge E. J. Kennedy, of West Covington, also spoke. Right Rev. C. P. Maes, Bishop of the Cov ington diocese, who returned from Europe Friday, reviewed the parade at St. Anthony's church. A male chorus of 100 voices under the direc tion of Prof. R. J. Schlffer, of New port, furnished the music. The city was decorated with flags and bunt ing bearing the insignia of the Holy Name societies. AWFUL DEATH. George W. Everin, a well known railroad engineer, and Peter G. Al len, his fireman, met an awful fate on Friday, when their engine went down into a ravine on the L. & N. railroad between Turners and Eng lish, where four spans of a wooden trestle gave way beneath the train's weight. Both men went down with the engine, and It not Instantly killed were scalded to death. When ' the bodies were recovered they were removed to their homes in this city.

Last year In this city the Democrats registered 29,586, the Progressives 13,527, the Republicans 7,370 and the Independents 5,024, and In the election Buschemeyer, the Demo cratic nominee, received" 24,944; Axton, the 'Progressive nominee, 20,399, and Wood, the Republican nominee, 1,388.
