Commander of Verdun Gives Inter estlng Account of Rclig . Ions Devotion. Great French General Consecrated Armies to Sacred Heart of Jesus. TID3 HAND OF GOD IS VISIBLE. Capt. E. Hallulte, Commander of tho Verduu, -was In Charleston, B. C, and tho Charleston American tells the following interesting ac count of the prayer of Gen. Foch . and the soldiers of Franco: Shortly before Capt Halluitte was scheduled to leave for France he waa given a private dinner, which among a few guests it was tho great privilege of one of the staff of tho American to attend. It will always bo a pleasure to recall tho evening. Naturally the object most discussed was France, al though the direction of conversation alorig this line was due to tho In terest and curiosity of those so fortunate as to meet tho Captain, rather than to any deslro on his part. Ho talked freely, and de cidedly frankly, gave credit where credit was due, measured oven the late enemies of Franco without bit terness, but with a delicate pride that was truly French naturally be lieved she deserved first place in tho picture. Ho spoke, however, more of his homo (Rhelms), of its beautiful Cathedral, its famous statue of Joan of Arc, and other memories so dear to his heart, not tho least, of his family houso, all of which are now in ruins. He goes back to begin life over again after an absence of forty-six months. He will find his fair France there, but ecarred and buried in ashc3. His wife and children await him with many tender welcomes. His friends here, who can never forget him, wish him bon voyage. t. .Capt. Halluitte has sailed for ijiltPrance.i:Ho waa' charmed ,wlth TCharloston arid laudea" "the"-worlfj "accomplished, by the -ladies at the Gregorian Hall on George street. Speaking to a representative of tho American, the Captain Bald: "I give you a souvenir of my visit, tho prayer of Marshal Foch. Tho thousands who read the American will feel glad to know that tho soldiers and sailors in Prance know this prayer by heart." Tho prayer: "O, Eternal Father, God of arm ies; I offer thee the most precious blood of Jesus Christ, Redeemer and Prince of Peace, at whatsoever hour of day or night, in whatsoever cpot on earth it may be, when this thy good gift flows upon thy altars: In atonement for my sins; for all the needs of thy holy church; for the consolation of the souls in purgatory; for the conversion of unbelievers and of sinners; for the dying now and throughout tho day. I offer U also for tho expia tion necessary for the dreadful deeds of war; for our poor soldiers and sailors; for their families; for those who command and for those who obey; for those who live and for those who fall; for those who suffer and for those who die; for wounded, for sick, for afflicted in mind or body: for all poor prison ers, and for all helpers of each and every degree. "By tho caving virtue of the Blood of tho Lamb, over living, yet ever immolated by tho holy faltn and hopo and charity given by Him, 0 God, our God, hear our prayer. 0 grant that each one may do, by thy graco, his duty as ho ought, strong and brave, and casting away despair! O grant, Father of mercy, all-compassionate, that thou Thyself do with us, to thy glory and the salvation of our souls! O hear our cry for France, for her ifriends and for her enemies, too, within and without! Do thou from heaven help ,us, and by thy Holy Spirit send truo peace on earth, and good will amongst men; that all may lovo thee and for thy sweet sake that all may lovo their followmen! Amen. "Heart of Jesus, have pity on us all! "Queen of heaven, hear our cry!" Franco is talking of nothing olso but tho Sacred Heart and the vic tory; and some significant facts have just become public property. It is remembered that on June 9. solemnity of tho Sacred Heart, when a new attack menaced trag ically tho Campiegno front, Gon. Mangin throw back the onemy by a marvelous countor offensive, which signified that ho mlgTit not pass henceforth. Then followed the great sacerdotal supplication of June 29, tho national prayer of August 4, and above all the momorablo and mysterious date of July 18. , . ,. For some time it had been known among Catholics that a great rellgiouB 'event took place on this last dato, but only a few knew what that event was. Today the aecret (s disclosed. It was told by Pere Perroy, preaching In the Cathedral of Chalons, for on that day the Generalissimo of the Allied armies, Foch, consecrated those armies to the Sacred Heart in the little church at general headquarters. On nls kneee before the alUr, Marshal Foch petitioned the Sacred Heart, la coseeerftUac te Him the annle FIELD MARSHAL Field Marshal Haig on his return with a great ovation, preceding Buckingham Palace. of which ho had charge, for a prompt and deflnito victory and a peace glorious for France. It seemed as if only thl3 act was awaitel by our blessed Lord, for it was precisely from this date, July 18, that the tido turned. Throe days before all had seemed favora ble for the rush of the enemy to Paris, but on tho dawn of July 18 Gen. Mangin broko through the on emy lines with a bound, since when thore have been but tho glorious halting periods of a triumphal march; and "the hand of God has vialhlv annparprl Tho heroic soldiers of Franco ft,,;?- ln "tlM, "r were no less sure of their General-lB""al' ..J110.

"Vive! le coeur Sacro do Jesus!" BATON FOR MARSHAL. Prepaartions are being made by tho Catholics of the United States to give the highest honors possible to Marshal Foch, tho greatest Gen eral in history, when he visit3 America next spring. Tho fact that he is a fervent Catholic, a man who glories in his religion and who puts It forward in such a way that It will make Mm an outstanding fig ure In tho religious history of tho world, argues tho necessity for this. John H. Reddln, of Denver, Su preme Master of tho K. of C, says (hat arrangements are being made to present a Marshal's baton to Foch at a great mass meeting to bo held probably in New York. It was determined last summer to havo this baton made, and specifications have now been drawn. The baton will cost at least ?3,000, and will be tho costliest insignia belonging to any military official on earth. Marshal Foch is expected in Amer ica with President Polncaro and Premier Clcmenceau, of Franco, In April or May. BENEFIT OF ORPHANS.

FIRE DEPARTMENT IN' COMEDY. Judging from the stories ot se .Ji cret hotel conferences heard now overy other day por old Percy Haly must bo worked to death running up and downthe State to dig up a Democratic .candidate for Governor one whojmust be of the original prohlbltlonlstrjtype and a candidate who will be known as Percy's special chojee. No matter whether the gathering bo at tho Seelbach, the Old kin or at Frank fort, tho samo little clique of For ward Leaguers and; near Democrats aro present, but strange to say no one is taking the conferences seri ously and the "Haly candidate" has become a stock Jest with the Demo cratic politicians. The only strange aspect of the case Is this. How long Is Senator Beckham, Haly's greatest political .asset, going to stand idly by and seo Haly's attempt to croato friction iln the present harmonious ranks i of Democracy? Here are a few of those present at tho last conference and it will be noticed there are men that aro not naturally expected to bo antagon istic to Senator Beckham, and what must be his opinion of those con ferences, Percy Haly, Elwood Ham ilton, Rodman Koenon, Shelton Saufleld, Harry McChosney, Senator W. A. Frost, Matt Hennessy, James B. Brown and Col, P. H. Callahan. Just as was expected, the old line Republicans throughout the State havo already begun tho anvil chorus on the Hert-Searcy control of Republican politics, and in addi tion to knocking the powers that bo are nnttine.uaiiaa ablo arcument against Xepq,lieffiHcces3 this. fall. 'mesa oiu-nno uepupiicans say tnai tho awful failure of the present local Republican administration is giving a black eye to tho party throughout the State and further say that farmers and country mer chants are afraid to come to Louis ville during tho awful epidemic of assaults and burglaries. (Attention, Board of Trade, Retail Merchants and Men's Federation). An influ ential Republican politician from Owensboro said that he didn't con sider the present Louisville adminis tration as representative of hH party as the office-holders were made up chiefly of Mugwump Democrats from near Mayor Smltn down the line. Ho also wisely said that tho Republicans out in tho State aro up in arms against tho control of the party being confined to Hert, Searcy and the Herald, all of Louisville. From time to time the Kentucky Irish American has commented on the failure of the Men's Feedratlon to declare itself on the present wave of crime in Louisville and tho absolute failure of the administra tion which the Federation supported to a man. The writer has looked in vain from week to week to seo where tho Rev. M. P. Hunt was go-1 tng to deliver a stirring sermon on "Louisville Going to Hell," "My Travels to the Tenderloin" or sim ilar catchy subejet. During tho Democratic reign tho Rev. M. P. made the rounds alright and fol lowing tho 1917 election plastered the side of his church with a ban- uicu wiui a uiui - ner advertising a sermon on 'The nedn'tbave to go far or outsldo euncr., a personal couversuuuu wlthpetectives Long and Gels, tho rteaubllcan detectives who wero fired this week, might aid him satne.

Ing a popular one in Democratic Quito a chuckle went through the circles. During his twenty-three f- town this week when Joe Selllg-' years' service in the roiico uepart U man, of tho Board of Safety, tried ment Capt. McAuliffe earned quite 1 t if Au-. ..!.... to explain away the strong charges pro and con made in tho trial of the two detectives who were nreu for attempting to raid a" card game at tho rendezvous of that organiza tion with tho pretty and poetical title of the "Dog Alley Republican Club." Mr. Selllgman laid great stress on tho raid of social games, saying only four men wero taken, forgetting that awful hubbub over two men playing cards In the Blue- grass Democratic Club several weeks ago, laid down According to the rule by Mr. Selllgman tho negro gambling game whjch Black tertalnment Committee announced Hawk butted into was Just a . tue that Mackin will have a euchre and social affair, and must class with a lotto party on Thursday evening, pink tea or 500, party.

LIfe1s cloee has come to another venerable priest of this diocese, and from the Oweneboro Meesenger of Saturday we reproduce the follow. Bir. R6r. A. T. McConnell. for thirty three years pastor of St. gtephen'a eaurefe, and deaa of Oweacfeoro, died after a lingering illness of heart trouble. Ho was born in Ireland seventy-seven years ago, but came to America when he was about beventeen years of age, first coming to Wilmington, Del., whero ho lived with his only relative in this coun try, a Mrs. Riley. Ho lived about three years in Wilmington, whenco lie came to Louisville and worked for some years in the iron industry. During these years spent In hard manual work ho had only ono aim In life, tho priesthood. Ho began studying for tho priesthood at St. Mary's College and completed his course in theology at St. Thomas Seminary, being ordained Juno 15, 1873, in tho Cathedral of the As sumption in Louisville by the Right Rev. Bishop McCloskey. Father McConnoll's first charge was at the Church of Our Lady in Portland, where (he remained four years-, lator toeing transferred to St. Xavler's at Raywick, whero ho was pastor for six years. Ho was then railed back to St. Cecilia's In Louis ville, whero ho remained a year and a half, coming to Owensboro in July of 1885. Since 1885 Father McConnell has been at St. Stephen's, tireless In his work, and even on January 19 said -the 8 o'clock mass and preached a sermon. Father McConnell was first and last and always a priest. He was sincere and a stickler for tho truth. Even In telling a story, if he changed it a bit from the way ho had heard it, he would say at the end "I added that." His predominant character waa his openness and straight forward ness. His answers wero always "yes" and "no," and If he thought ho was In the right there was no persuading or dissuading him. An other prominent characteristic was his wonderful will power. Ho was a very determined man. When ho undertook anything It was with his whole heart and soul and he stayed with It until it was successfully carried through. In his earlier years in Owensboro his work was over a broad field, but he worked at a disadvantage as his eyesight was poor for many years very poor. For thirteen years he was the only priest in his parish. Fathor Mc Connell in his attainments as a scholar had an exceptional flno memory and a very clear mind. His memory was accurate until tho last. His knowledge of the Scriptures was exceptional. As a priest ho wns a man of God and spent a great part of each day in prayer and meditation and though his Infirmi ties wero a sore trial during his later years ho was never heard to complain. Tho body of tho beloved priest laid in stato In St. Stephen's church from noon, on Sunday until the funeral Tuesday morning, which waa attended by many of tho clergy from the two Kentucky dioceses. On the morning of tho funeral theie wero evidences of mourning upon all sides. RETIRES FROM CABINET.

Tnclvo Sliui Fclners Imprisoned For Dillling in n. Prlvnto Hall. Edward do Vnlcm and Members of Parliament Escape From Prison. IRISH NOT TO BE RELEASED. Tho new British Parliament olected In December held its first session Tuesday, when James W Lowther was re-elected Speaker. None of tho Sinn Feiners elected to Parliament from Ireland appeared at the opening session. Apparently tho much-discussed question of whether the Independ ent Liberals or tho Laborltes wero to bo tho official opposition has been settled by a compromise, as both William Adamson, tho Labor leader, and Donald McLean, tho newly-elected Chairman of tho As quithlan Liberals, sat on tho front opposition bench with the chiof lieutenants. A heavy programme of work faced the now Parliament at Its ODeninir session, but In nnnn nt the bills wore thoro any measurei oi rener lor Ireland. From Dublin them hna Tinnn n dearth of news, nothing at all toeing sent regarding the new Irish Par liament or conditions existing there. In tho Irish capital twelve Sinn Feiners wero found pniitv Sottininv of illegal drilling in a private hall there and (were sentenced to six months' Imprisonment. When ar raigned they denied tho authority of British laws, and onn of ihnm whiio In the dock, waved a Republi can nag. From London is was cabled that Prof. Edward de Valera, the Sinn Fein leader, and anirnv anA tith. Garry, also Sinn Fein members ot Parliament, escaped from tho prison at Lincoln Monday night, according to the Evening News. Prof, do Valera was takeu in custody last spring-when the-Britlsh Government rounuea tip a number of Sinn Fein leaders and Interned them at a time when it was declared a plot backed by Germany was in process of incubation in Ireland. Prof, do Valera denied tho existenco ot any German plot. Ho has been held nevertheless with other Sinn Foin ers and was still undor detontlon when he was elected to Parliament at the general elections In Decem ber and when last month ho was chosen as a Sinn Fein delegate to the peaco conference. Reports from various sources that the members of tho Sinn Fein who had bcon interned in England wero to bo (released were set at nought Wednesday by a statement icud from tho office of the Secretary for Ireland. The statement declared that the Sinn Fein prisoners wero not to bo released "under the pres ent circumstances." DRAMATIC SUCCESS. "My New Curate" had its initial peiformanco In St. Xavler's audi torium Sunday night before a largo and appreciative audience, and was staged again Thursday night with tho same success. Tho staging of this play is somewhat unusual and more elaborate than ono gen erally sees in the amateur line, tho electrical effects, tho storm and spe cial scenery for this attraction be ing worthy of special mention. A great deal of credit is duo to Sylvester Grove for directing this heavy and edifying drama and bringing out tho best in each of the cnaracters. Martin Goby, as Father Lethoby, deserves tho highest pralso for handling this difficult part like he did. Mr. Hume in tho rolo of Father Dan, tho parish priest at Kilronan, looked every inch a priest. His cool and deliberate acting appealed to the audionce Bertha Heuser and Ethel Greeley, with their experience from last j-car, performed with ease and craco in the samo roles they ap peared In last season. Mary Joan ctte Blehl, as Alice Moylan, the blind girl, a part that calls for the dramatic In its highest degree, was capable and well suited for this part. Thomas Nolan, tho well known architect, acted tho first night Jn the place ot Thomas Clines, as Jim Deady, and certainly mado a hit. Allen Matties and Joseph Sandfort were certainly proficient in the military rolc3 that they acted. Ruth Donnelly, as Father Dan's housekeeper, brouhgt forth many an applause by her clever performing. "My New Curate" is a play that gives edilfcation from boginnlng to end, and some stern lessons of hu man nature aro ably shown. It represents Faith, Hope, Charity and Grace. Each act brings out ono of these magnificent qualities, showing how ono follows the other In succession if wo only do our part. It is a wonderful sermon, a grand lesson that is Impressed upon each ono ot the audlenco and as ono that witnessed It said, "When you seo it you'll want each one of your friends to see it." There will be a matinee and a night perform ance tomorrow and one Thursday night, February 13. Reserved seat are now on sale at Roger's Chureh Goods Store and at the college.
