mucky Irish American
The Junior Order Perturbed
Over.Keeent Fraternal Day
. Flr.r.le.
Sore on the Mayor, Chief of Police
and This Publication In
Scorca Its nrother Members For
Hiding Behind Telegraph
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,
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

hands, regardless of political
Idiosyncrasies, sit np and take no

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

came the rank and file, the bulwark

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
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
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.
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,

creasing the membership every
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
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 Month That All Catholics
Devote to the Holy
Impressive Kellgious Services
For Tomorrow at St. Louis
lie rt rand's.
President "Wilson Asks That All
loin and Pray For
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

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.

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.
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.
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.
American Federation of Catholic
Societies Hold Annual
Bishop Sell rem bs Denounces At
titude of Secretary of
Immense Parade Tuesday Ite-
viewed by Cardinal and
Many Bishops.
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
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

existence the St. John Society has
done n Incalculable amount of
charity work and Its Influence has
been widely felt.

ments and the Grand Marshal and
his staff, and marched over the prin
cipal streets of Bellevue and Dayton.

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.
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

trestle gave way beneath the train's
weight. Both men went down

Next Tuesday and Wednesday,
October 6 and 7, will be registration
days, and although nothing like the
registration figures of last year are
expected, nevertheless the leaders
of all three parties sre working hard
to register their full strength. 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

Axton, the 'Progressive nominee,
20,399, and Wood, the Republican
nominee, 1,388.
This year the Democrats at a
conservative entlmntn will hit. a
registration of about 25,000, the

The State DemneratlA Oa mml.n

unturned to aid In the election of
Beckham for United States Senator,
and this past week have made ar
rangements to bring Senator James
and Congressman Stanlev har fw.
speeches in his Interest, in addition
to others of prominence, which in
dicates that the leaders take no
stock in the claims ot Ollie James,
Who In an interview at Waahlnrtnn
claimed that Beckham would win
by 50,000 majority. This estimate
Is ridiculous, esnaclallv whan it la
