DEMOCRATIC laily nnd Committee Arc on Trial ill the Greeno-Grcgory Contcst. Forcing of Gregory Against Peo ple's Wishes Deliberate Party Suicide. Republican Machine Has Troubles Galore and Chcs and Bob Retire. THE KEYSTONERS IJUX AMUCK. The local Democratic party and the present City and County Com mittee are on trial In the primary today and the committee's handling ot the primary will either earn the support or condemnation not only of the Democratic voters, but the mass of independent voters who are lovers oT fair play. And that verdict will be rendored according to the result of the Greene-Gregory face for the nomination for County Judge. The open campaign has proven beyond a doubt that the voters . in unmistakable numbers want Mr. Greene for the nomina tion, not a single gathering of the Jackson Club, the Shelby Club, the Twelfth Ward Club, the South and North End Eleventh "Ward Clubs but showing the enormous trend of sentiment for the popular young attorney. The same sentiment was shown not only In other gatherings but In the county outside of the city. No one disputes that Mr. Greene Is the choice of the people, this being conceded by those who for various reasons are supporting Gregory. This brings us to an analysis of the support behind Judge Gregory, composed of a little group of wll rul men. who despite the popular ity of Mr. Greene are resorting to every method of bluff and political chicanery to defeat the wishes of the people. Lewis Humphrey, Ar thur Krock and Attorney Tony Car roll are the chief promoters of Judge Grecory's campaign and they have enrolled a few workers who are noted for their willingness to fake'ordersw-bether-Tlght-or wrong An effort Is being made to direct the work of the entire Democratic organization from the headquarters, attempting to issue Instructions for support of Gregory. although neither of the throe alKne named gentlemen are members of the Cltj and County Democratic Committee. The people do not want Gregory, the unwilling and eleventh hour candidate, yet these gentlemen are endeavoring to force him on the party against the wishes of the voter. Any man or woman Inter ested In the welfare of the party Teallzes this course la suicidal, and as one leading candidate expressed It the other day he wouldn't give a. dollar and a quarter for his nom ination with Gregory as the candi date Tor County Judge. The situation In the Republican party Is similar to that in the Democratic party, the only differ ence being that the Searcy-Chilton mahclno has a handful of contests that promise trouble for the bosses. Matt Holt for Crlmfnal Judge, Joe Klrwan for Sheriff, Nick Vaughan fpr Judge. Nick Denunzlo for Jailer and Elmore Thomas for Repre sentative, are arrayed against the "Republican machine, which marks the greatest opposition against the Scarcy-Chlllon machine in eight years. All of these men have a strong following of independent Re publicans, comprising business and professional men. Arrayed against at the command of the machine are all of the city and county em ployes, the negro and white gam blers and the proprietors of sup- posedly .soft drink., stands. Here tofore the Searcv-Chllton machine, has counted on thp big negrp vote In the Ninth and Tenth wards to do the bidding of the tosses, but tho Lqvett case has pffsot this, and (he-negroes not allied with the gam bling and. bootlegging interests have become dissatisfied with the "Bearcy-ChHton regime. Just as llessrs. Klrwan, Holt ai& the other Republicans who dare to think for themselves. This dissatlstactton means that the end of the -Searcy-Chilton re gime In the Republican party Is in Bight, and the end of its bosslsm is In sight in city affairs if tho. Dem ocratic ticket is beaded by those two stalwart young Democrats, Worrln nnd Oreene. Political Critics believe that when "Bob" "Lucas ac-' .a4.J .& JTVtllnAtnraTlfn 9T1II lines L earcy grabbed the, post of Na- Ittonal committeeman oom wc tar seeing enough to see the hand writing on the wan. waien ine defeat comes the, unknown Mr, Moorman will wear tne Drum, oui 10 Republican League, the alias Ir tho Searcy-Ubiuoa macnine, wm ve gstliered together a nig geti- hay tfiuul from tno iveysumo jhi L . iiii. 1hiwil the will to ll black gamblers and tho "soft nit" etajids.

But to our story. The announcement of Qulu's candidacy was honed to be real soothing syrup for the angry andi discontented tax payers, and the Herald, machine or gan of the bosses, paved tho way In circus stylo. Voters were told that Mpssrs. Searcy, Chilton, Bur llngame and others who are deeply Interested In ''reform and good gov ernment" were going to bring out a puro and spotless candidate, one that would rival Ivory soap. Then with a blare of trumpets Judge Quln was hauled out to make his bow as a candidate for Mayor, but to the surprise of his backers the announcement fell flat and since thnt announcement the "pure and spotless" candidate further queered the scheme by trying to hang on to his job In tho Court of Anpeals bench, run for Mayor, and during his leisure moments advance his candidacy for Governor. Along with all of the troubles of the 'Searcy-Chilton machine Is tho vain effort of the bosses to dis credit Sheriff Ross Every little byplay or move of Ross' Is adver tised by tho Republican henchmen, who fear that Ross and his friends may have a following against the ticket In November. Becauso Sher iff Rops and his deputies tried to go Into the Broadway Athletic Club on their badges ono of Searcy's hench men raised an awful hullabaloo. and with the assistance of the Bing ham papers tried to make It apnear that It was a crime for Sheriff Ross to witness without paying the ef forts of some ham-and-eggs boxers. JiiBt consider for a moment the growing list of enemies' of the Searcy-Ohllton machine 'Ross, Klr wan, Holt. Denunzlo, Thomas. Vaughan, Lovett and others and It Is no puzzle as to why tho city and county employes are slow about "kicking in" the. campaign fund, and this also explains why Keystone police are sneaking around the railway company barns and offices to cet their old Jobs back. What a knock was given the Republican platform this week. The platform advertised by the official qrgan said Louisville under the present administration had a real police force and fire department. Along comes tho Kentucky Fire Un derwriters' Bureau this week and places Loliwlllo In tho "fotirtli-clnvs a a fire risk becauso of tho "hick" fire department. Then to add In sult to Injury It was announced that local manufacturers and employers were organizing lire companies of their own. and would give ah exhi bition nqxt month as to the ability ofth'eMirlvate- firemen. Thus you nay taxes for a fire denartment but) do your own fire fighting. One of the present "hicks" was asked to go up a ladder of the supposed fire school, located at Eighteenth and Garland Nothing doing. The boy from the sticks told his Captain "that hark hum ho fell off a step ladder oner, nnd he vowed If lie ever cot on a clem ladder since." Yes. he Is still In the fire depart ment. As for the Keystone nollce Just about the time the Board of Safety or the machine organ (ells of our efficient department the comedy cop go on a rampage. This week a Kevstone nollceman beat up and assaulted John Carroll, a reputable citizen, at Seventh and Oak streets. The same- policeman shot a boy three weeks ago. A crowd of bravo (?) policemen assautled Ed Early in tho .station house Wednesday night. At Twcnlyl$th and Port land Monday evening a Keystone copper whom they call "Huck" filled up on "white mule" and just like a drunken man Imagined from his own dizzy feeling that everyone else was staggering lrunk. This Keystoner. in citizen's clothes, drow a crowd from all over the neigh borhood, and he finally drew the police machine to carry out bis commands. At Fourth and Market Monday night a Keystone copper made a speech In which he said; "Boys, I want you all to help me out: that darn Republican League keeps gittin' all my money, and I'm going to request the handbooker boys to especially kick In with two dollars apiece for my wluter over coat." Of course ho was cheered by the big crowd of newsboys as sembled there, and they had tho tlmo of their life pounding the pud dled Keystoner on the back, saying "Sure, we'll help yon out," and the only1 thing lacking to' complete tho burlesque was for someone to hit the country cop with a 'bladder. Wopder hpw Paul Burllngame can adjust tho above, series of Key stone misdemeanors and how tiro some his Job must be. -,No wonder Paul wanted to be Governor of Porto Rico. rHETIN'G OF INTEREST.

Sorrowing Naples and Italy paid tribute Thursday to the memory of Enrico Caruso, the great tonor, who died there early Monday morn ing. Thousands gathered at a sol emn requiem mass or stood uncov ered along the streets while the funeral cortege passed. In the choir which assisted 1n the impressive ceremonies were many men and women who haye played stellar roles on the operatic stage, Scenes of extreme pathos were enacted all day Tuesday -at the Hotel Vesuvius following the' death of tho man pop ularly acknqwledged to be the pre mier tenor of hip generation, Nea politans of every class stood' in llpe tor many hours to file past the bier of Carjiso, -which was placed in the room where he had died. From Um6 to time the silent procession would, pausfe while some man or woman "would kneel for a. moment beside the body nd offer prayer. -.From Naples It was cabled Wed nesday that it the last moment It was decided that the burial should not take -place uptil Thursday. By special permission of Kipg Victor Emmanuel, servtces were held in the jbaslllca of tho Qhureh of San Francesco dl Paola, a famous edi fice resembling the Pantheon at Rome and constructed, by Ferdinand I, in XSli-M.

Unless your Justice abound inoro than that of the scribes and Phari sees, you shall not enter tho King dom of Heaven." Tho sermon was. in part, as follows: '"To those who find) fault with the church and with churchmen for what they call meddling in spheres that are foreign to our purpose, I point, first of all," ho said, "to my text, and quoting from Pope Plus X., I say to them: 'That tho ques tions regarding tho conditions and hours of labor, salaries or strikes ore not of a purely economic char acter, thoy aro moral problems In their very essence and can be set tled only by having recourse to the fundamental principles of justice and charity.' There is no excuse for an economic system which in our land ot peace and plenty pro duces millions of well-nigh starving men, women and children, while tho few Increase their wallets by tens and hundreds of thousands of dol lars annually Too long have wo been preaching the doctrine ot resignation of labor. Too long have we been pointing to a home beyond" the skies where poverty and priva tion will cease and Justice bo meted out to all. How ironical tho so licitude that held out 'death as the only means to right tho wrongs of the poor! Whatever remedies are found for Industrial troubles and evils," Father McMenamln de clared, "It will be organized labor that will put It into effect." Continuing, he told his own story, saying: "Let me briefly tell you the story of a boy, one of a large family supported by a father who worked In the coal mines of Penn sylvania. When this boy was ton years old his father was brought home from a mine badly injured. The sight of her mangled husband almost cost his mother her life. A fow days later the boy took his father's dinner pall and applledf for w6rk at the mine. He was put to work at tho princely pay of thirty cents a! day W.80 a week. Through snow nnd rain he wended his weary "way each day, and sat whore water drenched' his skin for ten long hours and toiled until often blood dropped from his Jlnger tips to help swell the unholy proflts ot the men who already were count ed millionaires. At night ho 'has tened to night school. At the ago of nineteen he became a teach or in the very school were formerly ho studied. Thea' he saw a yiounger brother die In the arms of; his mother, mangled Into death by rea son of tho greed of his employers, "Brethren, that boy is appealing to you today. Ho Is asking 'God to forgive overy heartless employer who lives In, luxury while a single employe Is. In need. He is thanking God for tho labor unions that are dragging from capitalists conces slons that aro begtonlng to right the wrong of labor. He IS thanking God for the labor unions that aro fow lng legislators to pass tho law to save children (from slavery and .give them a chance to obtain an educa tion. And ho Is praying God that they may not cease their efforts un til they have made collective bar gaining universal and so perfected that eyery "man will bo In some de gree a ipront-snarer in ine enter prises that he Is helping. 'Tt -Is genorally conceded that wealth is unjustly distributed. .It also 1 conceded that collective bar gaining is tne most emcacHiiw means at hand to correct that evil, and since collective bargaining ?n not he made effective -without, a closed or union, shop, then do w stand for that principle.
