Thq reorganization of the Re
publican City and County Commit
tee Tuesday furnished many amus
ing phases despite the glowing ac
count In the Herald, the organ of
the Hert-Scarcy-Chllton machine.
First Miss Hattlo Hoffman was
shelved as Chairman of the Repub
lican women, her place being given
to Airs. Aubrey Cossar, a former
Herald reporter. Then Tobe Hert,
the big "boss, told how pleased ho
-was to visit tho City Hall, State
House and "Washington in turn to
see Republican officials in charge,
and said that when he returned to
his farm he bad decided that the
sun was shining bright" In old
Kentucky. Tobe failed o tell his
hearers how the dark clouds must
have obscured the sun recently when
he was running up and down the
country trying to have the hard
times administration give him a job
In the Cabinet. He might have
added also that ho and Ches have
been sitting in the shade a long
time lately, while Senator Richard
Ernst and Maurice Galvln are gej'
ling all the pie from Washington,
Tobe didn't throw much light either
on his object of dragging Judge
Huston Quln from the Court of Ap
peals bench to run for Mayor, 'espe
cially when he has been a leading
cvponcnt of a non-pnrtlsan Judlcl
ary. Judge Quin was elected by the
people to serve six years and. Boss
Tobe wants him to disregard the
people's voice nnd quit after serving
less than half a term.
The address of Bob Lucas", the
new Collector, was a puzzllng one,
as you don't know whether to cry or
lauglu Mr. Lucas said: "The dark.
jdaysjir corning, letme warn ypu
and let us warn" our neighbors TJv
order that they may be prepared
i ii. in..wi Ti.ftnVn ' rrtia and
days coming referred to must mean
the defeat of the Hert-Searcy-Chll-ion
machine, and it must have
brought sob3 of grief from Tobe,
Ches, Matt and even Mr. Heyburn
when Bob spoke about all going
down together In the valley of de
spai.r. During Collector Lucas' sad
and touching story the Chesley Club
orchestra played "Hearts and Flow
ers" and those other melancholy
numbers "Tho Soft Drink Stand
Takeout" and "Who Divies the Re
publican League Fund." The speak
er also denounced the gullible
preachers and newspapers who are
not satisfied with the present ad
ministration of lilghcr taxes, Key
stone police, hick firemen, dirty
streets, etc; For this he -was loudly
applauded by all of the office-holders
present, who are thoroughly
pleased with tho Hert-Searcy-Chllton
regime. Before closing Mr. Lucas
must have chased away the tears
from his hearers' countenances
when he spoke of his battles for
"reform" and the efficient service
In his court. When one thought of
his many days as prosecutor listen
ing to the Keystone police testifying
as to how they had "kotched a man
at Eleventh nnd Brook," or brought!,
"thnt thar prlmer to taw," his
little reference to efficiency must bo
appreciated, and when he spoke of
his battles for "reform" all thought
of the fact that one of the first ap
pointments of Collector Lucas waa
that of Tommle Butler, another bat
tler for "reform," ' who as county
patrolman was on the carpet for
having about four mysterious auto
mobiles In his stable.
But aside from all the flowers,
"reform" talks, etc.. Boss Tobe and
Boss Ch&3 saw to It that the new
Chairman, Mr. (Moorman or Mrs.
Cossar, wouldn't have a voice when
1t came to selecting nominees for

Democrats can. not but feel en
thused over the prospects for the

success Is entertained by those who
hear that tho Hert-Searcy-Chilton

sheer folly as the strongest political
machine over created can not beat

The atempt oftlnr-polIce censor
department to cover up the failures
of the Keystone cops and protect
the negro Rebupllcan thugs at the
tamo time proves a hard Job. Take
the Mrs. Coyle case. Mrs. Coyle
died at tho home of relatives in
Covington Saturday from the effects
of an assault by a negro thug April
24, at her homo, 441 Fehr avenue.
On her death bed Mrs. Coyle re
peated her first story of the assault
by a negro. Now after tho lady's
doath the Kcj stone censor quotes a
coft drink proprietor as to saying
that tho lady died from a natural
Illness, nnd wnsn't assaulted. Now
nere's the point. If Mrs. Coyle
wasn't assaulted by a negro why
did the police department keep the
story from the papers, suppressing
It completely until neighbors gave
Ihe story to the Courier-Journal.
The night of the Coyle assault Mrs.
Leila Bush, of East Chestnut street,
was attacked by a negro, and Rev.
B. F. Atkinson, a Methodist min
ister was beaten by thugs. All
three assaults were kept from tho
papers until even tho machine Her
nld squawked about the pollco
censor. The night following the
above assaults George Jeffries was
assaulted and robbed by negro thugs
nt 9 o'clock, and for two days the
Keystone press censor persisted in
saying there was no truth in the
story. The brilliant censor now
cays that Mrs. Coyle fell down the
steps, so it It In lino for the Key
ctone cops to Issue a statement say
ing that Mrs. Bush, Rev. Dr. Atkin
son and George Jeffries assaulted
Here's a case of more covering
up to shield the failures of the Key
stonors. The Miller-Baerd residence
at 1C25 Third street was robbed
Saturday, $1,500 worth of Jewelry
being taken. As usual the press
censor was on the Job and the story
only leaked out when a reward was
offered for return of the Jewelry.
And right today Just one week after
the robbery, the Louisville Herald,
whoso motto Is "The truth, no mat
ter, whom It helps or hurts," lias
never mentioned that such a rob
bery took place. The machine or
gan's motto should be "Just so It
don't hurt Tobe, Ches, the Keystone
police or the near Mayor Smith ad
ministration." Score ono for a Key
tone cop at Fourth and Market last
week, as this knocks out the theory
that the comedy police don't know
enough to come In when it rains. A
sudden downpour came up. The
Keystone traffic cbp showed rare
Judgment. He gathered up his
semaphore and dug for shelter at
the Lincoln Bank. Of course car,
automobile and other traffic ran
wild, and there was much mumbling
and swearing, but the Keystoner
didn't get wet.

and is now the guest of her uncle

O'Leary, 2410 Griffith avenue. She
is also a niece of Mr. and Mrs.
Con, J. Ford. Miss Ford is' a mod
est and Intelligent young woman,
and she speaks intelligently of con
ditions in Ireland, of which Amer
icans know little, owing to the Eng
land's consorship of the press and
news agencies. Suffering and perse
cution, she says, are widespread, but
tho people are bearing up bravely
and have strong hopes for ultimate
success and the right of self-government.
The reports of crimes by
the Sinn Feiners are false and un
founded, S3 also are their alleged
defeats of the Irish Republican
forces. Miss Ford expresses herself
delighted with the treatment re
colved andi all she. lias seen since
her arrival in this country.

Saturday morning and cordons of

the ends of which barbed wire en

menced. The crown forces claim to
havo captured the headquarters of
the Irish Republican army In a re
cent raid.
Tho Government's poUIcy for
"sterner repression of the criminal

involves the strengthening of the
crown forces In Ireland with mil
itary reinforcements which will be
drawn frpm units now in foreign
service. No Increase of the auxil

of the constabulary, Is contemplated,
It Is declared. There is some like
lihood of the extension of martial!
law to the whole of Ireland, with
tho exception of Ulster, it Is Indicat
ed, but the Initiative rests with Gen.
Sir Nevll MacReady, the military
commander of Ireland, as 1t does in
the question of introducing the
Kitchener blockhouse system. It
was officially stated that the re
inforcements to be sent will be con
siderably less than 50,000 in num
ber. A flarge number of mobile troops,
the -London Times says, are to he
employed in a systematic "round
up of rebels" over large areas, but
It adds, tho details have not yet
been settled, as owing to the con
tlnuance of a state of emergency
through the Industrial troubles, and
the need of sending troops to
Silesia, it is difficult to spare troops
at present. The decision of the Gov
ernment to increase the tropps In
Ireland Is the subject of various
rumors. The newspaper versions
of the situation differ considerably,
the most striking story being that
of the Daily Sketch, which says It
purposed to raise the present force
of 50,000 men in Ireland to 100,p00.
Among the objects attributed to the
Government by the Dally Sketch are
the establishment of martial law
throughout the whole of Ireland, a
system of 'blockhouses such as the
late Field Marshal Kitchener adopt
ed in "South Africa, and wide mil
itary operations In combination with
the navy around the coast to afford
greater precautions against the en
try of persons, and goods. The Dally
Mall asserts that garrison troops
abroad which can be spared are be
ing broucht home to release trosps
in Bagland for service in Ireland,
The statement is made la the
Dublin Independent that Viscount
vttralen tforutenly Lord Edmund
Talbot f, the new Viceroy for Ire
land, obtained from the Cabinet as
a condition of his acceptance of the
Viceroyalty, an undertaking that the
inception of his regime would be
marked by the withdrawal of the
Auxiliary Police, called In Ireland
tbe "Black and Tans." In official
quarters In Dublin this statement is
not confirmed. But it is generally
taken to point to some change In
the control of the auxiliary force.
Sir James Craig, Premier desig
nate for Ulster, has gone to London
to arrange the details of the core
mony attending tho opening of the
new Northern Parliment June 7.
The Ulster Unonionists still express
the hope that either King George or
tho Prince of Wales will open the
proceedings formally. The Union
ists, however, probably will have to
be satisfied with some lesser dig
nity, among those mentioned being
the Prime Minister, David Lloyd
George, the viceroy, Viscount iFltz-
alan, or even Sir Evan Clarke, the.
viceroys representative In Ulster.
The Nationalists and Sinn Feiners
insist that the Northern Parliament
will be unworkable from a financial
standpoint. Both sides express dis
satisfaction with the system of pro
portional representation, even the
Unionists admitting that the Na
tionalists and Sinn Feiners are en
titled, according to the votes cast
for them, to four members for Bel
fast, whereas they have only one.
The unofficial count of the votes
cast In tho elections in the six
northern counties, of Antrim, Ar
magh, Down, Fermanagh, London
derry and Tyrone, shows that the
Unionists received 341,289 votes,
the Sinn Feiners 103, 516, National
ists 60,604, and the Independent
Laborltes 40, $11. Thero is to bo
added to the Uplonist vote 4,000
university voters whose ballots will
bo counted Saturday. These figures
would inidcate that the Nationalists?
Sinn Fein comblatlon should, In
view of tho proportion of their sup
Dorters, have about twenty members
In the new Parliament to the Un
ionists' thirty-two, although it is
considered .probable the Unionist
representation may reach forty-one.
The fact that Joseph Devlin, the
Nationalist leader, must resign
either his seat for West Belfast or
Antrim probably will add to the
Unionist count, as it it believed al
most certain that a Unionist will be
chosen for whichever seat he re
signs. Two surprises of the voting
were the big poll of Arthut- Griffith,
founder of tho Sinn Fein organiza
tion In Tyrone and Fermanagh,
where he received more than 10,-
000 votes more than the first Union
ist and the majority of more than
12,000 yotes which Sir James Craig
had over Eamonn De Valera.

The feast of Corpus Chrlstl was
celebrated Sunday in the Catholic
churches of-rthe city with solemn'
and beautiful ceremonles.'aBd in all
vast numbers received the saera-
mentys. At St. Louis Bertrand
ehuroh at 10:30 a. m. there waa'
solemn mass, followed, by the
Euchsrlstic procession. The ehoir,
under the direction of Mrs. Fred A.
Harlg, sang Mozart's Twelfth Mass
and the "Pange Lingua" during tho
procession around the church. Ben
ediction was given twice, the third
being reserved for the afternoon.
At 3:30 tho annual May procession
took place, the children singing
hymns appropriate as they marched
around the church. There was a
sermon closing with benediction.
Because of their political beliefs
and activities 4,984 Irishmen have
been arrested or interned and are
at present held away from their
employment, despite the fact that
3,000 are tho sole or main support
of the families, according to a state
ment Just made through the Amer
ican Committee on Irish Relief. Of
this number 2,576 are at present
interned and have been given no
trial, while the number of persons
in prison and "awaiting trial" Is
given as 1,208. In addition some
1,200 persons are serving prison
terms for political offenses.
"These arrested persons mainly
are clerks, shop assistants, farmers,
farmers' sons, merchants and other
townspeople and elected public rep
resentatives," said the statement.
"Some 15,000 women and children
are directly affected by these Im
prisonments. Moreover, there aro

political offenses; some 3,000 of
these have families dependent upon
them, but owing to their being
fugitives of the Crown they aro un

dependents. In tho Belfast district
alono 9,000 Catholic workers have
been driven from their employment
because of their .religious and po
litical beliefs, and these and their
dependents, who together number
30.000, are utterly destitute."
The statement declares that the
destruction of property by British
forces has resulted In enormous eco
nomic loss and widespread distress.
From January 1 until April 15 of
this year the British military and
constabulary havo destroyed wholly
1,412 farm-houses and buildings,
shops, creameries, factories, public
halls and clubs and private resi
dences, while 1,538 of these types
of buildings have partially been de
