Campaign Discontinued. i Chairman Ches Searcy Begins State ffaampalgn and Kcystoners First $h . Victims. Unsolved Mystery Where $220,000, of City's Funds "Went in Two '" ": Years. BURGLARS KEAP A HARVEST. The .Democratic nomlnoes for President "and 'Vice President have started on aggressive campaign that ..seems to havo swept the Republicans off their ifeot, and the determination of Gov. Cox and his running mate, Mr. Roosevelt, to tour the country has forced a change In the policy of tho G. O. P. It was originally In tended to just allow the Reopublican nominee to drift along, this decision beeing arrived at by Boss Penrose 'and tho little group of old fossilized Senators who control the Republin party. Harding would sit on the porch at home with a big palm leaf fan and the bosses with the big cor poration boodle would Just waft him Into office. This was agreed on aft er Harding was chosen as the nomi nee, the fossil Senators figuring that with an antl-Wllson cry and McAdoo as the nominee they would have no trouble In November. But tho nomi nation of the sterling and aggressive Ohlo Governor knocked their plans into a cocked hat, and It Is a certain ty that, if tho hosses could choose again Johnson or eome stronger man would be In the field against Gov. Cox. Three months ago a Republi ' can President seemed a certainty but that Is not the case now, Cox draw ing first Mood by breaking up the porch campaign and now ho has the Republican bosses on the run. The fright of tho (Republicans Is ..reflected in Kentucky. Stat Chair man Ches Searcy has already sound ed the battle cry for tho G. O. P., the cry being for tho State, county ad cKv employes to couch np, Chcs MtWWT-WBIWJKH. Here Jn Louisville tho poor old Key stone police and "hick" firemen have boon notified to put up ?25 each for the election of Harding, this ?25 to bo paid in four Installments of $6.26 each, the Republican Campaign Com mittee collecting this amount now. Attention, Mr. Near Mayor, Paul Bur llngame, Jos. Selligman, Lewis John son, of the Board of Safety, and Helm Bruce, Dr. Lockhart, Henry Johnson, of tho Men's Federation, nil of whom say they are opposed to political as sessment of city employes. Maybe Paul, Joe and Lewis, of the Board of Safety, don't know that Ches and his associates ore assessing the police and firemen $25 jer head. Maybo they don't, and tills tip from tho Ken tucky Irish American will surpriso these threo oxpopts of reform ad ministration. Ygnnybc. But the Stato Republican mpaign fund twill need the money badly this year, as Tobe doesn't etand in so well with Harding's managers and will not he able to got a big (barrel from the Na tional Committee. Louisville citizens, especially those who supported Smith, must jhave been awful proud (?) of our near Mayor, when they read his statement on tho car fare question the other morning. Naturally they expected that a Chief Executive would he right In the thick of the controversy watching out for the taxpayers' in terests. But In an interview Smithy said: "Let them' and, tho Council wrangle, I will not butt in. They took tlio load off my shoulders. I will wait serenely until tho proposi tion comes to me;" in other words, our near Mayor Is peeved ibJfcause the Railway Company offioialswont to the Council, and he is not going' to ilay any more. Just going to take his -doll rags, or rather nls golf sticks, and go home. Thus tho street car raise is Jeft to Councilman Nick Denunzio and his fellow-statesman, and as Nick Is a budding aspirant for Sheriff next year his friends say that he Is going to do ihls "durndest" fighting the Street Car (Company. We want to submit a mystery to the readers of the Kentucky Irish American and every taxpayer should try and eolvoho puzzle, as it In volves $86,388 of tho taxpayers funds. We first quote from the Louisville Herald of December 17, 1917: "An additional saving of $10,000 a year, effected by economies ln tho organization of tho ncalth Depart ment, has brought tho total annual saviBg to taxpayers of $80,388." According to the statement oi uie Herald on December 17, l?fc17, the taxpayers were being saved' by our "reform" administration the sum of $86,383 EACH YEAR. Now here it ia Juat a llttjo over two ycara and a half from that date and according to the Herald's official statement the taxpayers would have saved In the city treasury Jn round numbers $220(000. But, sad to Bay, our enor mous saving has disappeared accord ing to tho Htrald xt Tuesday, July 18, 1920: It read as follows: live General Couucll ''committees met fit the invitation of Mayor Smith h the letter's office and listened to mi urgent appeal by the Mayor FOR MORR BHVKNUK for the CITY'S tOBSS) T2T GENERAL.

" Soma one page Sherlock Holmes or Night Chief Laird to solve this, mystery. Those solving the puz Ele'wlll he given a life size portrait of-"Howdy Ed" Morrow surrounded by the crew whom iho "wiahed" on the- race track managements this year. Two weeks ago we called attention to the fact that Patrolman Pounds was "fired" 'because, as he alleged, Harvey Burns, tho colored negro poli tician and Official city undertaker, complained of the 'raiding of a crap game. It was further charged that Burns was arrested in tho raid and ajipeeared in Polioe Court under the name of Luke Jones. Prosecutor Lucas never denied or affirmed tho story of Burns' trial and the gamb ling raid. But Paul Burlingamo camo out dn a cross-myheart-and-hope-to-dlo statement denying that Burns had anything to do with the "firing" of Pounds and intimated that his Board didn't even know the col ored politician. Attention was called to tho fact that Ilarvcy Burns was tho official city undertaker under jurisdiction of tho Board of Safety and ho handled colored bodies. It Beems .that that statement wasn't ex actly correct, as tho body of Selbort Proctor, Uio suicluo barber, A WHITE MAN, was turned ovcrto Burns, tho colored undertaker, by either the Coroner or police last Sim day afternoon. Well, It was a Tegular carnival for the army of burglars, crooks and holdup men In our midst, and judg ing from the robberies and burglar ies this week a record was made in the Burglars' League. And Just think how many were suppressed by tlio omciai police censor. iLSUt epeaK ing of records, there seoms to be some Jealousy cropping out among the gay robbing bands. It was cited last week that the Quaker Maid gro ceries had been robbed sixty-four times in two years. Stung by this growing record the burglars who rob the Goldstein-Moseson store regular ly made another haul there Sunday uignt, making their batting average a total of fifty-three times In three years. Thus you seo keen competi tion Is on. Hero's another official document as they say: The Louis ville National Banking Company, of Fifth and Market, ran an advertise ment in the dally papers this week saying: "The extreme activity of 'yeggmen and safo robbers tho past week prompts tins old national bank to extend its banking hours on Sat urday nights for your benefit and protection." No, dear xeador, Chief Petty will not have this adv. reprinted in his Police Bulletin. In all thfe carnival of robberies and crlmee the Jolly Kajwfcnf'ip6llc&; consisting: of ex-. Btreet car boys, don't bother making posts any more, but have eomo "hum dinger" checker games, by gosh, in the station houses at night. FEDERAL BUREAU ADVOCATED. r A bill to provide a National Em ployment Bureau in tho Department of Labor was introduced in the last session of Congress by John I. Nolan, of San Francisco. By tho terms of tho bill a national employment agency will be established and co-op-oration between the national bureau and such State bureaus as comply with the regulations of the national bureau Is provided. The Postofflce Department of tho Government Is di rected to use tho postal system and the postal employes wherever prac ticable, to assist in the omploymelt service. To keep the employment service from becoming a strike-breaking agency there is included In the bill a provision ordering that those seeking employment shall be in formed of industrial disputes. A national employment bureau helping directly as an employment agency and working with the State bureaus ehould be of great help in remedying industrial and employ ment conditions. An additional fea ture of tho bill, serving to strength en tho State bureaus, allows the na tional bureau to contribute to tho State bureaus a sum equal to tho amount appropriated and spent by the individual state. During the war the employment service of tho Federal Government did an immense amount of work in showing imen whero work could be found and in supplying industrial es- UllillOUUUCUlO Willi llilU iUlUUOU amount of labor. The Institution of such a eorvico as a permanent insti tution thas been recommended by a great many organizations and indi viduals. Among others tho Ameri can Federation of Labor and tho As sociation for Labor Legislation have advocated a Federal employment Bervice. The Bishop's programme of social reconstruction said that though tho problem of unemployment Is with us always and though many agencies and methods will havo to be used tto solve the problem, "the primary and indispensable instrument is a nation al system of labor exchanges, acting in harmony with State, municipal, and private employment bureaus." DUBLIN POSTOFFIOE RATOED. Fifty mon raided tho general Post- office in Dublin ..

MJ(rv Government Urges Knights Not to Include Women in Pilgrlmago to Europe. French Arc Very Enthusiastic Over tho Lafnyctto Statue For Metz. SPECIAL CEREMONIES AT ROME. "No matter how great tho wander lust may bo crying out in you this summer to pack your wardrobe trunk or oilcloth week-end bag or Btraw suitcase, or whatever It Is that you carry about with you when Journeying away from tho home, don't pack it with Franco as -your ultlmato destination. That is, don't do so if you are a woman. If you do you'll come back a sadder and wiser member of tho sex." This Is a bit of warning that Miss Mabel Callahan brings back from France. With her recent return on the French lino steamship Lafaydtto, after having spent flvo months abroad engaged in secretarial work for the forthcoming Knights of Co lumbus pilgrimage to Europe, Miss Callahan Is the last Knights of Co lumbus girl worker to return from abroad. While there Miss Callanan did conBiderablo traveling and knows of the difficulties whereof she speaks. In addition to her Knights of Columbus work sho did secretarial work for Marcel Knecht, Director of tho French Information Bureau of America. Previous to sailing for France with Mr. Knecht she was connected with his offices In New York City for year and a half. On his return in tho autumn she will resume her duties under him. "It is tho red tape and tho train Bervice that will prove so devastat ing to tho woman traveler in France this summer," sho said, in discussing traveling conditions abroad. "Oh, that red tape!" and she mado a llttlo grimace that de tracted not at all from, her brunette prottlnesa. Miss Callahan says that everywhere in Franco tho red tape Is enbugh to take tho heart out of any traveler, no matter how ambi tious hp or she may bo. Fines for failure to observe all the various rules and regulations are heavy. The many rallrpad strikes on the con tinent add greatly to traveling com plications, according to Miss Calla han. Besides causing transportation to be slow, in many Instances a train may bo sent out on a detour from Us regular route and you may find yourself stranded in some coun try to which you have no passport. Then you may havo to wait weeks before tho necessary passport ar rives "It took mo front half-past eleven In the morning until eight o'clock at night to reach Verdun from Paris," Mid Mias Callahan, telling of her own personal difficulties en countered.

Miss Callahan stated that Ameri can visitors to the number of 100 a day wero visiting the Knights of Columbus Bureau in Paris and wore receiving assistance to reach Ameri can1 cemeteries. . ORPHAN SOCIETY PICNIC. Tho big outdoor event of tho com ing week will be the midsummer out ing and picnic of the St Joseph Or phan Society, to bo held next Tues day on the beautiful grounds of the' Orphan Home on Frankfort avenue, Crescent Hill. For weeks past Presi dent John Tobo and committees headed by Henry Bosso, John Ecken, Joseph Otte and others have been busy with preparations for tills an nual benefit for tho St. Josoph Or phanage, and they predict It will sur pass any In the history of the insti tution, which is a credit to Louisville and deserves the support of all class es. Many handsome booths will adorn the grounds, where a fine lot of ihandsomo and useful articles will be disposed of. Again this year the usual bounteous meeals will be pro vided and numerous attractions will be In evidence, those that please the young as well as the older person. The Orphan Society has left nothing undone for the success of this event and expect a record breaking attend ance. Extra cars will bo run on the Walnut and Orescent Hill lino both day and night and stop at the main entrance to the picnic grounds. PRAISES RELIGIOUS AMITY. Aid given by councils of the Knights of Columbus to the Ameri can Jewish Relief Committee has been acknowledged by Nathan Straus, the well-known philanthrop ist, In a lotter received by Supreme Secretary William J. McGinloy, of the K. of O. . Mr. Straus' letter reads: "May I take this opportunity to express to the Knights of Columbus tho profound appreciation of myself and my associates on our American Jewish Relief Commltteo for tho broadmlnded and humanitarian spirit which prompted you so gener ously to come to the am or our movement. In my opinion, one Qf tho most Inspiring of tho spiritual by-nroducta of the war Is the now solidarity of the various creeds in America, who havo learnea to worK shoulder to shoulder in tho cause of humanity."

She her Bolf wap out attending a case of sick ness when at 1:30 a. m. on February 28 last tho soldiers oharged in, re fusing her friend time to dress. Miss Mullen, In spito of strong protests, and the maid wero both kept Isolated under guard whilo ithe house was searched. Dr. Lynn returned to find disgraceful disorder and the follow ing articles mislng: A four-pound box of chocolates emptied, cigarettes .3i wK WIa in taken, a small hot-water bottle In velvet caso and an embroidered lace collar stolen. This may bo called a mild case of hungry soldiers pilfer ing and curio hunting. Four offi cere were present. Mrs. Lynch, of Richmond road, raided on March 5 last, deposes to the loss of $28 from two purses, and two ladles living at Park avenue, Sandymount, to tho itlheft of a silver powder case and threo necklaces valued at $25 in a raid made at 1:15 a. m. on February 26 last. These ladles wore -not detained, but stato that thoy "were so terrified that wo did not attempt to follow tho soldiers and remained. standing dn tho hall." Sean Byrne, however, a wi clllor of the corporation, raided and arrested under lettro de cachet at 2 a. m. one mornlngt was shut up, barefooted and (half dressed in a small cold room while hie houso was searched.

On the same night another lady, Mrs. Humphreys, of No. 14 Herbert Park, whose eon was subjected, to cruel and causeless arrest, found that a valuable diamond and sapphire ring had been stolon from her dress ing table. Listen next to three extraordinary cases, in all of which tho victims' are absolutely unconnected with politics. They illuminate Mr. Macpherson's favorite formula that '.Maw-abiding" persons have nothing to fear In Ire land. Miss Hickey is a school teacher liv ing at No. 1 5 Tlvoll terrace, Kings town, with hor sister, Mrs. Longmore, whose: husband is in the Government service. Mr. Cooko an elderly gen tleman and a, Unionist, also lodged in tho house. A Castle spy had ap parently told somo fantastic story about Mr. Longmore's being addicted to "drilling" on his brief periods of leave. Hence the raid at 1:10 a. m Mr. Longmore being absent at Birk enhead. Whilo revolvers covered Miss Hickey the raiders entered the house and mado an exhaustive search for four hours floors torn up, garden dug up. Her cross- examination was grotesque, If' it were not scandalous ly insulting, when the party de camped, leaving Miss Hickey faint with fatigue and cold. They took along i? 18 In cash, a ring, a bangle and a chain, all of gold; a dinner knife, six collars and tobacco and cig arettes, a bottle of whiskoy and some cheese and apples were "consumed on the premises." Mrs. Salkeld, who is a widow wholly unconnected with politics, liv ing In a flat at Cullenswood House, Rathmines, has been raided four times in two months, apparently be cause eome suspected person resided in the same block of flats. On the second occasion she lost fish knives and forks and small valuables worth $25, and at the fourth raid, which lasted eight hours, her boy, aged fif teen, wa3 arrested, incredible as It may seem. Lastly, the case of Signor Slmonet ti, an Italian professor of music at the Irish Academy, renting a fur nished house fit No. 5 Leoson Park avenue from Anthony Mackay, who owns to tho crime of believing in Irish independence. Innocently enough tho professor took Unto to put on some clothes before answer ing tho knock. Crash went his door with crowbars. After the raid, which terrified his ohildren Into screaming, he missed a wrist watoh, the contents of a purse, eome silver-mounted -halr-bru'shesand somo. articles of oloihjng., "On The "night of September" 8 last tlio small garrison town of Fermoy was methodically sacked by a large body of soldiers armed with crow bars, trench tools, etc., the principal shops and business premises being more or lesswrecked, and the con tents In some cases strewed about tho streets or looted. The work met with no interference from 6:30 to 10 p. m though tho barracks wero close at hand. Tho regiment which wrecked Fermoy should have been transferred from Ireland. It was moved to Cork, where political feel ing was intense, and on November 10, with no special provocation, again rioted, smashing shop windows over' a wide area and wrecking and looting tho Shandon Company's premises. At Klnsale and, Athlono .similar events occurred. SOLDIER FUNERAL. Jefferson Post, American Legion, and other organisations are expected to take part in funeral services for Corp. Frank J.

STARTLING Lack of Suitable Housing Accommo dations For Catholic Girls Is Revealed. ' " ' '" National Couniil of Catholir Women Works to Relieve Present ' . -Conditions . f Visitation Homo nnd Sisters of Mcrcy Cnro For Many Working" Girfg. ' SEEKING EXTENSIVE QUARTERS hnn.!n Pl0raW k 0t BU'tablG ""slng accommodations for the Catholic girl compelled to seek em- viyjiiitmi m ciues wnere she has no rriends or relatives has been disclos ed by a preliminary survey of- this ? by the National Council of Catholic 'Women. According to the report, fifty-five Catholic boarding homes out of a total of elghty-nino havo been compelled to establish waiting lists because of, inability to accommodate girls. Tho survey in cludes reports from sixty-two of tho 271 cities in the United States hav BnreA5 Population of more than 25,000 and shows that 5.754 glrla were boing accommodated in tho eighty-nine houses. New York State, with twenty-four houses, heads the list, accommodat- Hu 1,3.i Blrl3, Massachusetts, w'tn nll,e houses, accommodates 564. Ohio has seven houses, with accommodations for 479, and Penn sylvania four houses with accommo--datlons for 454. Ten of the houses are conducted under the auspices of the. National Council of Catholic Women, Including three In Washing ton. Twenty-seven States and the District of Columbia aro represented in the survey, which points out con clusively tho necessity of immediate action to care for tho Catholic girl and young woman who aro friend less and homeless in large cities. It has already been suggested that a chain of national community houses, with accommodations re working, girls bo established by the council and that each house be given a uniform name so that a working girl arriving in a stranrn nltv win bp able to locate it, without diffl- cities, it Is' pointed out;K hotels' aro crowded and, moreoveaTfin these tho living costs are high. Private families aro averse to taking In girls to room or board. They aro too much troublo, it Is claimed. Men boarders are preferred. The conse quence Is that during the past few years four or flvo glrla havo very often been forced to crowd Into a small room and on occasions girls have been compelled to go from door to door seeking shelter and, not finding It, have been compelled to spend the night in the station. They aro frequently the victims of extor tionate anu thieving landlords and landladies. These girls run grave moral risks getting into unknown and unrecommended houses, some times housea of more than question able character. National Catholic Welfaro Council surveys among 33,021 girls and wo men employed in factories and stores In St. Louis, Milwaukee, Columbus and Detroit show that moro than 12 ,per cent, of them are living, away from home. In many occupations- tho percentage Is higher. In 19'IG, for example, 32 per cent, of the women restaurant workers In Massachusetts wero found to ba living away from homo. The Catholic Women's Association of Cincinnati already has taken a decisive stop to provide Quartern fnn tho working girl. Plans have been mauo ror a unique "downtown hotel for business women, which will in clude club rooms for organization meetings, an auditorium seating about 400, a restaurant, swimming pool and gymnasium, aa well oa sowing and domestic science classes and other educational work. Hero in Louisville tho Visitation Home and the Sisters of Mercy havo cared for many young women for years past with tho most satisfactory results, until now a new and-larger home Is needed. This will bp real ized as sopn as the subscription? to the recent'drivo havo paid their sub scriptions, which will enable the good Sisters to secure a larger and moro commodious building in favor able quarters. Then Louisville will" boast of one of the finest housea in tho entire country. Tho local fund, for this purpose has already reached nearly ?150.0QO, which doubtlde will be added to when'tha new site has been decided upon. THANKS FOR BATON, Through Dr. Marcel Knecht, of the French High Commission, now in Paris, Marshal Ferdinand Foch has sent his thanks, to tho Knights of Columbus on hearing of the gift of a Jeweled baton which ho will re ceive when tho IC of C pilgrimage attends tho unveiling of the statue of Lafayctto In Metz on August 21.
