BBOO REPUBLICAN Machine Having Troubles Galore "Willi White Women, nnd Negro Voters. Hert-Searcy Press Agent Still Try ' ing to Bunco People of the State. Ncucnscliwandcr's Firemen See a . Tremendous BInc but That's All. DON'T WAKE UP FIREMEN. The old adage, "consistency thou art a jewel," should he transposed to "persistency thou art a Jewel" lor the press agent of Tobo Hert, dies Searcy and the Republican machine. Pretty near tho whole world knows that Tobo was a badly disappointed man after President Harding had announced his Cab inet and other appointments, yet , his special representative on the Bingham papers and the machino Ileralu would tell us that Hert and Searcy were old boots and shoes with President Harding. Still no appointments came this way, ex cept thoso that iccelvert the ofllcinl nppioval of Senator Itirliard Krnst and ll friend Maurice GiiHin. Nothing daunted by the continua tion of severe frosts from Wash ington, Tobc and Ches persist In trying to fool the Kentucky voters that they have Influence, and Wed nesday the Courier-Journal In a "headline announces that "Hert Agrees on Dry Supervisor," and that State Chairman Ches Searcy said so-and-so about patronage. But Hert and Searcy's press agent killed his story when he said that "Senator Richard P. Ernst was ar ranging tho details for tho differ ent appointments." Attention was called to another pource of trouble In tho ranks of tho Republican party and that Is how to get up an organization of Republican women that tho negro Republican women won't butt In on. This week a meeting was held by Republican white women at the homo of Mrs. A. T. Hert, wife of ToIkj Hert, the Republican boss, and among those rresent at the conference were Mrs. Huston Quin, wife of the machine's Mayor alty candidate; Mrs. M. H. Thatch er and Mrs Alfred Selllgman, wives of Board of Safety members, and Mrs. C. 1. Groves, wife of the County Physician. It Is rumored that all was not harmony at the Hert residence, and that Mrs. Pansy Denunzio, State Labor Inspector, ami Miss Hattle Hoffman are at the "head of a rival movement for con trol of the white wing of the women Republicans. But the rear trouble seems to be among tho,col ored school teachers and 400 of West Chestnut street. The negro Republican women claim that with a registration of more than that of the white Republican women they must bo considered at gatherings of Republican women, and one high toned colored wash lady said: "'We've got mo Uian fo' tousand votes in do Tenth and Eleven t walids, and dem toney white 'Pub lican ladies bettnh see lis." 1 The color lesuo Is giving' tho bosses of the Hert-Searcy-Chllton machine many a sleepless night, ns the negroes are growing more and -mpre bolder in their demands for race equality and pie. Negro gam bling games nnd bootlegging Joints are running hog wild because they are considered an adjunct of the machine, and when the gamblers lose the .Idle negroes get thirsty for "white mule," 'then some house Is burglarized or some -white man "knocked In the head. Disorderly and drunken negroes make the nights hideous with their drunken revels, and are not molested by the Keystone police, whom tho negro newspaper describes ns the most gentlemanly police wo ever lind, nnd as a proof of this tho same pa per says NO NEGRO HAS HAD OCCASION TO KILL ANY OF THEM YET. Not satisfied with their march on Shawneeland thla week .the negroes purchased Rlvola Park, at Shelby and Kentucky, anil the residents of that neighborhood, many of whom are Republicans, -will now be treated to some noisy and enthusiastic gatherings of their fellow Republicans, Last Sunday for some unknown reason thou c.iTwia nt noprnpH snent the day In Cherokee Park, and the loudest squawk came from a Dig wnue nw nnViiionn whn iirpA to say when niH of ihn nnirroes' demand for Shawnee Park.

Two prize excuses wero offered at the City Hall through the news papers this week "He probably would have been dismissed anyhow and tho suspended fine of $10 was for the protection of tho officers," was the first novel explanation of tho disappearance of an alleged dip arrested at Fourth and Walnut streets -when a farmer was robbea. fn tho melee a detective was knocked down and one of the dips escaped. Shots were fired on Lou svillc'8 main thoroughfare. First we find a Jail deputy on tho bond of tho men arrested and next a Republican member of tho "Legis lature.

The text of the Pope's communica tion to Cardinal Logue reaos: "While we are filled with anxiety In rntrnrrl n lll nntlonB. WO nTO most especially concerned about conditions in Ireland.

Father Nerlnckx, the great mission ary of Kentucky, had 'made com plete plans to establish a school In 1819 on the same site, but fire de stroyed the several small buildings that were erected and the lack ot means hindered him from rebuild ing and carrying out his project. Father Byrne, after founding the school, was President- disciplinarian, professor and treasurer for twelve years, besides being occupied with tho duties of the St. Charles' pas torate. Martin J. Spalding, who later became Bishop of Louisville and Archbishop ot Baltimore, the see occupied by the late lamented Cardinal Gibbons; was among the first students to enter the portals of St. Mary's In 1821. Such' a bril liant student was Archbishop Epald lnr in his 'teens that Father Byrne appelated htm a the first lay pro fessor t St. Mary' CoMege ia the mathematical branches at tho age ot fourteen. Archbishop Spaldlnc graduated from St. Mary's in 182G with tho highest honors. In 1833 the Institution was turned over to the Jesuits by Fa ther Byrne. The late Rev, Walter Hill, S. J was connected with the college 'for practically ten years as a student and professor. The Jesuits abandoned St. Mary's In 184G to take over Fordam University in New York. Senator A. H. Garland and the Hon. Zachary Montgomery, who-wore Attorney General and As sistant Attorney General respective ly during Cleveland's administra tion, wore enrolled as students at St. Mary's whllo It was under tho Jesuit regime. Tho school was conducted by the secular priests of tho diocese from 184G to 18G9, Rev. P. J. Lavialle, who later beacme Bishop of Louis ville, was President of St. Mary's College from 1859 to 1S65. The Right Rev. J. L. Spalding, Bishop of Peoria, was a student at the col lege for several years, and filled the position of prefect and assistant professor during tho scholastic year of 18CG-1957, In 1871 tho Fathers of the Congregation of the Resur rection obtained pontrol of the in stitution. For twenty-five years the Rev. David Fennessy, C. It., steered the course of old St. Mary's and the school enjoyed great suc cess during his pilotage. The Very Rev. Michael Jaglowlcz, C. R., has been President ot the school since 1901. The college has grown by leaps and bounds until today it ranks with tho best Institutions In the State. It Is the only Catholic college for boys In Kentucky which confers the degrees of Bachelor ot Arts and Master ot Arts. The reunion ot alumni at the centennial celebration Is bound to prove tho biggest affair In the his tory of tho college!. Graduates as far back as 1847' are still among the living and have already signified their Intention of being with "old boys" in June. Among tl noted, alumni still living and many of whom will grace the centennial festivities by their presence ore the following: The Right Rev. P. J. Muldoon, Bishop of Rockford, 111.; Right Bev. J. B. Morris, Bishop of Llttlo Rock, Ark.; Right Rev. Paul Peter Rhode, Bishop of Green Bay. Wis.; Hon. Edwin P. Morrow, Gov ernor of Kentucky; Hon. Ben John son, Representative In Congress; Richard E. Queen, of San Francisco, Cal.; Sam Fontaine, at present financial editor of tho New York Journal; Wlble Mapother, the Pres ident ofuhe Louisville and Nashville railroad; Thomas Walsh. Louisville lawyer and poet; Dr. Irvln Abell, Judge Samuel Boldrlck and Thomas Mapother, lawyer. LAST HONORS PAID. With honors rendered doubly Im pressive by the simplicity of the ceremony the body of Edward Douglass White, Chief Juslce of the United States, was burled Saturday in Oak Hill cemetery, to sleep for ever vIthln sound of the city where his great service to the nation was rendered. Lowered flags on public buildings, closed doors of tho Gov ernment departments and the dull thudding ot a funeral salute from batteries at Fort Myer across the Potomac alone marked outwardly the nation's grief A small com pany had gathered In St. Matthews' church when the hour of service, ar rived. Close up to the altar tho casket was banked over with flow ers, and directly behind it President and Mrs. Harding took their places whllo Cabinet members, diplomats, committee of Congress, high depart ment officials and others of those, representing a Government in mourning were grouped with a few intimate friends. The uniforms of Major Gen. P. C. March, Chief of Staff, and tho officers who accom panied him to represent tho army, and of Admiral Coontz, Chief of Operations of the navy, and his olttcors, marked high lights among the somber black of the civilians. When all were In their places the doors were opened to the throng that waited outsldo and the church was filled quickly. Requiem mass was celebrated by Monslgnor Leo, rector of tho church, which Justice White attended. At tho altar wore gathered also a group ot clergy that Included Monslgnor Bonzano, Papal delegate, but thero was no departure from the ordinary service for tho dead, as tho widow, of the Chief Juslce had sought simplicity and privacy In all that marked his death. Mr. and Mrs. Harding did not accompany tho body to tho cemetery and all tho official char actor of tho service ended with the ceremony In the church. Only the little company of relatives and close friends and the eight surviving members or the Supremo Court as honorary pallbearers went to pay the last honors at the grave. ORPHAN SOCIETV PICNIC.

IRELAND Results of Parliamentary Election Indicate Sweeping Sinn I'oin' Victor'. Story of Lloyd Georgo and Presi dent Do Vnlera Dealing Held FnlNe. Dublin Custom House, One of Tho Vlneht In Kingdom, Now in Ruin?. NOW COUNTING TIIE BALLOTS. From tho meager reports allowed to pass the British censors the indi cations are that Sinn Fein and tho Irish people have scored a tremen dous victory over Lloyd Georgo and the Carsonlte forces of Ulster. The press Is being freely used to bolster the Government, whlnh t fi.i- charging tho Irish Republicans with lesponsiijuny ror tho many and hor rirylng deeds ot Its Black and Tan forces, hoping thus to place Ireland In a wrongful position before the world. But this effort Is doomed to complete failure when tho truth be comes known. On the evo hnforo nniiinn. ,i i., fiecti?n to. th0 Ul8ter Parliament, the Nationalists and tho Sinn Foln ers were claiming they would secure twenty of tho fifty-two seats, where as he Ulster Loyalists claimed th'er :"'um "" iniriy-six. xne Loyalists, however, admitted that Eamonn D valnra. Arthur Griffins nii rMo Collins, of the Irish Republican army, would obtain Ulster seats. The results probably will bo known on Wednesday. Meanwhile impar tial ooservers estimate the Sinn Felners will win eighteen seats. Election officials In Belfast be gan Wednesday morning at 0 o'clock to count tho votes cast in Ulster on Tuesday In the election of members of tho new North Irish Parliament. It was exnected that when the canvassers adjourned at S o'clock at night the results in the city and possibly many district outside would bo known All of tho 388 polling places jn Belfaat were busy Tuesday, and estimates were made that fully 90 per cent of the voters wont to the polls. Reports from Strabano and other imijontant towns In Ulster indicated that tho vote would be very heavy. Belfast had returned to almost normal after a night of wildest excitement. Re ports reaching the olty indicated that many districts In Ulster were similarly affected. Crowda con tinued to walk the streets until 11 o'clock In the expectation that troublo would occur, but when the midnight hour had passed all signs or trouble vanished. From Belfast tho Associated Press cabled on Monday that tho Dally Ealreann'e publicity department has Issued a statement characterizing as unfounded reports originating In Belfast that Eamonn do Valera and Premeier David Lloyd Georgo are In direct negotiations for a settlement of the Irish probelm. The lection campaign for the Ulster Parliament Is proving the freest from factional fights of any election In recent years, and the fact that Saturday night and Sun day passed without serious disturb ances leads even those who ex pected trouble to the belief that the danger Is past. Feeling runs high, however, and passions are heated, but the careful police and military precautions havo kept the factions apart. The Unionists, whose district Is decorated with Union Jacks as never before, with pictures of Sir Edward Carson and ISIr James Craig displayed everywhere, attendedi "Empire day services" in their churches and chapels, while the Sinn Felners. whose colors also had been freely hoisted, held a meeting In Smlthfield Square on the door stops ot the police barracks. The Nationalists held a big demonstra tion In Celtic Park. The Custom House in Dublin, says a Central News dispatch from that city, was burned Wednesday afternoon. Tho fire started nt 1:15 o'clock, the flames breaking out simultaneously! throughout the building, wliich was totally de stroyed. It was ono of the finest buildings in the United Kingdom and cost one million pounds. The occupants fled as the fire broke out. Another account states that the Custom House was set op fire through bombs thrown In the build ing. The railroad bridge running past tho building was occupied by a large number ot men, upon whom a fusillade was opened. Others in the immediate vicinity of the Custom House also were fired upon, Lorry loads of the military were bombed as they wore driving up to the r.cene. The soldiers fired machine guns, rifles apd revolvers, and sev eral persons were seen to tall. Shortly afterward Liberty Hall, the headquarters of the Irish transport workers, was set on Are and de stroyed. BISHOP HARKINS PA98H6. The Right Rev. Matthew HarkiHs, Roman Catholic Bishop of the dio cese of Providence, died at his home there Wednesday, He was seventy-flve years old and had been. Bishop for thirty-four years. Only recently an auxiliary had been ap pointed to assist him. Bishop Har klns was a man ot wonderful abil ity and was held in high roagoct br people ot every denomlnatlea.
