Governor Goto Speaker Job Much to
r Delight of Hert-Blngham
Joe O'Neal Exposes Sham Reformers
and Whole Jlaclilno Tlirown
Into Panic
Chairman Grayot AV111 llavo to Keep
, Senator Beckham in tho Dark
1 Tho Courier-Journal and Times,
assisted by tho other Republican
organ, tho Herald, worked overtime
this week la jtrying to make old
"Howdy Ed" Morrow a national
figure. Ho was featured as tho
headllner of tho Coolidge notifica
tion, but they failed to add that
Hert's Governor was only a substi
tute for 'William Allen .White, of
Kansas City, who had been selected
originally to notify Gov. Coolidge of
his nomination for Vico President.
White was unablo to appear on ac
count of illness, and tho committee
fell back on "Howdy Ed," who can
be counted on for a Fourth of July
oration or a wlndjamming address
any old time. During tho Republi
can national convention the Bing
ham press led its readers to believe
that Bingham's partner, Tobe Hert,
was the dominating figure and that
tho delegates were lying awake at
Bight in preparation to jump up and
voto for Morrow as President or
Vico President. Tho first boom was
for Temporary Chairman, then came
the Presidential boom, followed by
tho Vfco Presidential boost, all end
ing in emoko, Morrow getting one
voto in the Vice Presidential ballot
ing, and it is believed that this was
through a mistake. Now ho fills in
as pinch hitter, followed by some
more lurid advertising In a story of
helping to catch a boy burglar.
With tho Bingham press support
VHowdy I?d" will be sought after
by tho movie men next.
Tho selection of John L. Grayot
as Campaign Chairman .for Ken
tucky seems to hare been a popular
move and augurs well for Gov. Cox
to carry Kentucky this fall. Thero
is only ono mistake that Chairman
Grayot can make and that ia to try
and shore Beckham down the
- .Utrnnta 'rrf tite 'theaaaitde of voters
- rfHftfraK igwrtfrrt- CAg-frtnotl Week
ham. Democratic leaders overlook
ed thejr opportunity in not eliminat
ing Beckham before the primary,
and hia candidacy means a heavy
.handicap for Gov. Cox. Tho candi
dacy of Beckham will also be a
menace hero in Jefferson county, as
Gov. Cox and Prof. Richmond, who
will be the Congressional nominee,
would be an unusually strong com
bination without the Beckham hin
drance. Prof. Richmond'o opponent,
Charles Ogden, will have a hard
time trying to explain why he
couldn't save Camp Taylor for
Louisville. ,
My! oh, my! didn't Attorney Joe
O'Neal throw a bombshell into the
ranks of the ocpnomy and reform
administration this week in which
ho charged Tax Commissioner King
with mismanagement. Hert's Gov
ernor, Inspector James, King and
all flew to cover and the old story
of it's the hit dog that yelps was
demonstrated when tho heavy edi
torial writer of tho Herald was.
thrown into the breach to stem tho
public cry for an exposo of King's
expenditures. But neither Morrow,
James, King, nor the heavy editorial
writer oxpluined why it cost 931,
800 mora for King to run tho office
tlumtho previous Democratic year.
This is tho first time the spend
thrift city and county reformers
havo had their hand called and Joe
O'Neal's boomerang has thrown
them into a panic. They aro indig
nant to think that anyono should
want to know what lias become of
$.tl,800 of tho taxpayers' money.
Chets and tho boys used to get out a
Utile publication called "Facts,"
which properly should havo been
called "Bull," as it was used to try
and lead the public into believing
that we had a good and economical
administration. If your lips are
not chapped and you aro not afraid
to laugh read this ono taken from
"Facts:" "An examplo of tho typo
of inefficiency and gross misman
agement of public affairs which ex
isted in tho Court House prior to
tho beginning of 1018 was given tho
public on September 0, 1018, when
tho County Assessor issued a state
ment, Tho County Assessor's office,
from tho time Mi". TKinjf began. work
after his election, lias presented a
veritable beehive of industry aH
compared to tho scene it offered in
previous administrations." Isn't that
rich? It was a busy beehive alright,
with honey amounting to $31,800
being distributed in tho "beehive."
Ae a whitewash- board we'll back
Paul Burllngame," Lewis Y. Johnson
and Joo Selligman against the
world. This Board of Safety will
take any policeman or fireman and,
'regardless of the crime, will have
. one of its little secret Inquiries and
" then produce the offender to the
public a whlta as snow, Patrolman
!. Sinks, who had the row with the
Lexington people, went through tbta
process: Patrolman Stonestreei,
charged with robbing a' grocery,
come through clean, and .the
beard's naive, explanation in the
' Roach cm deserves special mention.
Roach charged that Patrolman Ben
nett refused to aid him In arresting
an ex-tiolieeraatf named Probst who
had. held a pistol to hl stomach
threatening murder, Probst seamed
l be ju FJnneaan policeman, being
"sft again, on agate," and they aoy
he had Just, been appointed aeein
wteB he sought Roaa to exhibit
fcla potto pwf. The beard ta
whitewashing the case said: "Tliat
ovcrvthlne was alricht. Patrolman
Bennett didn't hear Roach calling
for holi. being troubled with a cold
j In his ear that night. Probst was a
great Joker anyway, being a former
comedian on amateur ''nights in
Stcurlo's picture shows, and Roach
wasn't mad any more, and oh!
pshaw! just let tho public forget it
ail anyway."
Now watch the next one. Chief
Petty baa filed charges against DeV
toctives McGslln and Keller, wh6J
beat an overseas soldier into insen
sibility July 17 at Third and Lib
erty, causing a near riot of 2,000
people. In an arrest previous to
this tho same two brought in Will
iam Karst all covered with blood,
they saying ho resisted mightily; In
the soldier assault many havo testi
fied that theso two efficient dotec
tives, who haven't arrested any of
the numerous burglars In our midst,
beat the prisoner in tho patrol ma
chine, and tho entire Second district
police squad was called out to pro
tect them from tho indignant crowd.
All of this necessitated Petty forc
ing charges, but horo' the finding
of the Board in advance: "Wo find
that tho detectives were n littlo
lutsty and tho prisoner didn't seem
ablo to take a joke. His captors
only slugged him with, a gun and
blackjack, not having a pickaxo or
sledgehammer with them at tho
iimo. Wo call tho public's attention
to their rcmarkablo bravery hi two
of them being ablo to arrest ono
man with ilxb help of tho reserve
squad, and promote both to Ser
geant Detectives. P. Bulling Game,
A former grand Juryman tells of
a meeting with our near Mayor,
which shows why ho is dubbed a
near Mayor. Capt Bennett testified
before the grand Jury telling how
Republican (political loaders sought
protection for gambling gomes. Tho
grand Jury, realizing that Bennett
would bo marked, went before
Smithy and told him that they want
ed to compliment Capt; Bennett, and
at the" same time suggested that tho.
near Mayor see to it Uiat no harm
camo to Bennett from tho Hcrt-Soarcy-Cldlton
macliino. At this
Smithy Just beamed on tho commit
tee and said: "Why, gentlemen, far
bo it from thus, Capt. Bennett is a
particular selection of mine, and I
will protect him to tho utmost." As
a striking example of how the near
Mayor performs and how ho pro
tected Capt. Bennett, the latter
wasn't able to got a Job in the city
or county administration. Capt, Ben
nett today is wrestling the big turn
table at Uio L. & N. roundhouse.

Nearly Five Hundred Men Keeeive
Holy Communioa and. Hear
Sunday of this (week was set aside
by the Vincention .Conferences of
Louisville to honor tho memory of
St. Vincent do iPaul, the patron saint
of charity. Charity, the fulfillment
of our Lord's injunction to "Love thy
neighbor," was the keynote and
watchword of this elect of God. So
well did ho comply with the wishes of
tho Lord that bis life and achieve
ments are held up to tho faithful as
an examplo and an incentive.
The name of St. Vincent do Paul
is revered throughout (Christendom
and in his honor have been founded
hospitals, refuges, orphanages and
roliglouB institutions which dot the
Catholic world in every corner where
human misery calls (or alleviation
and whore spiritual and bodily com
fort attend the passing of thousands
of human souls. Louisville ia (blessed
with one of St. Vincent's bequests to
ailing humanity In the foundation
, wazaretn, on 1'ayne street.
Annually as tho feast day comes
round the following Sunday is sot
part by the Vincentlans as an anni
versary, worthy of their special com
memoration of the holy man of God,
who by his zeal, his efforts, his ex
aniplo and his prayers gavo to the
world and perpetuated therein, the
spiritual and material foundations of
which they find themselves a part,
and on this day religiously rojoice in
their -partnership. This year .there
was a solemn observance at the
Sacred Heart church, Seventeenth
and Broadway, when jiearly 500 men
were assembled at tthe special high
mass at 7; 30 o'clock and were made
happy by bhe earnest welcome- and
sermon of Rev! Patrick Walsh, the
pastor, before they approached the
holy table to receive the Jblested sac-

"Murders, raids, plunder and shoot
ing, once uncommon in Ireland, are
topay a matter of course. Every day
thero is some excitement I talked
with a prominent official of tho Irish
Republic today. He told me that Ire
land s war today is looked upon by
the Sinn Feiners and Irish volun
teers as a just war. and, to explain
tho shooting, of policemen now very
common in Ireland, he stated they
aro spies doing England's work. 'Did
not the United States and (England
Blioot traitors and spies?' ho ex
claimed. Wo aro at war with Eng
land is the Justifying cause for the
shooting of policemen.
"I was chaplain with tho American
soldiers and marines for a consider
able time. I attended to the spiritual
care of the soldiers, too. I know how
brave were Undo Sam's boys, but the
boys of Ireland are braver and more
determined in their fight for freedom.
They aro tn'oxo anxious that victory
should bo theirs they have resolved
that Ireland should bo free. Ireland's
sons are firm, they aro ready to die
rather than acknowledge England's
claim to tholr country.

most remarkable. Every onan, wo

agent. Tho police in Cork since tho
shooting of Lord Mayor are about
"zero" in tho people's estimation. To
bo seen talking to a 'policeman in the

The British Government has no in
tention of withdrawing the Govern
ment of Ireland bill, Premier Lloyd
George stated in the House of Com
mons on Monday. It would press the
measure forward with all possible
speed when the House reassembled
after tho holiday recess, he added.
Reports that tho Government was
opening negotiations with representa
tives of tho Sinn Fein for tho pur
pose of reaching a compromise as to
the future rule of Ireand were set
at rest in the House by the Premier.
Ho was asked by Lord Robert Cecil
as to whether tho Government was
opening negotiations or pourparlers
with any section of Ireland and an
swered in tho negative.
Sir Horace Plunkett, founder of
the Irish Dominion League and lead
er of tho moderate Irish Nationalist
opinion, told a Newcastle audience
Saturday that tho situation in Ireland
Is more gravely alarming than it has
been within his knowledge of sixty
years. A similar viow is reiiectea Dy
the newspapers of both England and
Ireland of all shades of politics. It
found expression in all the speeches
of Thursday's discussions in the
House of Commons, oven Sir Edward
Carson declaring heTiad never known
anything like the state of anarchy
prevailing, and that "in tnree-auar-ters
of Ireland tho British Govern
ment has been entirely beaten." ,SIr
Harmar Greenwood. Chief Secretary
for Ireland, warned the country to
brace itself against a bitter period in
Irish history.
Both from Premier 'Lloyd George's
statement to the labor delegation
Thursday- and ,from Sir llamar's
speech it is considered apparent that
the Government regards that assart
ing of .the iways as. having sween
reached. One road leads toward ne
gotiation with the Sinn Feia on, .the
Ts" of a 'abttWfoniWrliHsf Trwer'
ment, while the other apparently
leads toward the bitter period which
Sir Hamar forsees, with mere ol-
dlers and stricter laws f or repression,
foremost among them one for the
trial of criminals fcy summary courts,
and the giving up of attempts to in
duce Jurymen to answer to a sum
mons, i
There aro two extreme factions in
Ireland now, the Orangemen of the
North, who insist upon maintaining
the Irish system as it is, and the Sinn
Feiners, who demand independence.
Between these policies lies the mid
dle course of dominion government
with Ulster excluded, which Premier
Lloyd Goorgohas declared he is will
ing to consider. It 4b understood
that James Henry Thomas, Labor
member of tho House of Commons,
and other laborltes will forwatd tho
Premier's plain hint to bring the Sinn
Fein leaders Into a conference. That,
however, would mean throwing over
board tho principal plank of the Sinn
Feiners' platform, which is an inde
pendent republic.
Tho. Dublin correspondent of the
London Times, who is the editor of
tho principal Southern Unionist
newspaper, the Irish Times, today
urges the dominion foTm of govern
ment. He writes: "The vast ma
jority of Irishmen would wolcome
any reasonable and honorable escapo
from their present situation. Thoy
are standing on tho edge of a volca
no." Tho correspondent expresses
tho belief that the author of domin
ion homo rule for twenty-six coun
ties would find favor with all moder
ate Irishmen and says the mass of
Southern Unionists aro anxious for
such an offer without delay. Tlie
chief factor operating to bring Irish -affairs
to a head is the latest phase
of warfarc 'that of retaliation. The
events of tho past few days have
Bhown that when assassinations occur
it means an outbreak of revenge Dy
the other party, In which peaceable
people suffer. Thoro is no prediction
how far these outbreaks may go.
Small interest has lueen excited in
Ireland by tho tenatlve proposals at
tributed to Mr. Lloyd George regard
ing dominion home tuIo with theipar
tlclpatiou of six Ulster counties. The
Associated Press correspondent has
seen several politicians of furious
views and all agree that there k no
immediate prospect or a setuemeni
in that direction. Sir Horace and his
followers declared their belief that a
firm offer of dominion rule for all of -Iiand.
leaving the Ulster position
for adjustment within Ireland, might
have a chance, but sold the offer must
be definite and authoritative. Most
members of this section sa4d wey re
lieved the feuickest way out of the
difficulty would be-iheSetablktoment
of a statutory elective convention of
all Irishmen Trlth the ipower to set
tle their own, constitution.
