It is needless to say how Cloverport loathes the departure of Father Brey the non-Catholics as well as the mem bers of his own flock are grieved to give him up. Although, quite a young man, he has become an old and dear friend to this town dnring his pastorate at St.Rose, He said the best fifteen years of his life has been spent in Cloverport. Father Brey built up the church here wonder fully. He stimulated the spiritual life of the church, improved the social side, and increased the membership. The children, he took particular pains to in struct and carefully train for thorough religious life. Father Brey also had charge of the Hawesville Catholic church, and in that mission there is the same source of re gret as exists here. One of the secrets of the transfer is, that Holy Cross expects to build a new church and the Bishop thought Father Brey was the man es pecially suited for that task ns well as for the other duties of a city pastorate.

"Thou shalt not Htenl," the cotnmatidment hauded down nt Sinui, confronted the Tnft llepublicaiis fti every section of Kentucky today when life was breathed into the National Progressive party in II9 counties. On every linnd the great est enthusiasm was manifested aud last night tho Louisville leaders and Leslie Combs and other state leaders were jub ilant. The result of the days' work, which meant the establishment in Kentucky of nuother big political party was telegraphed to Oyster Bay. The most surprising part of the coun ty conventions was the titteudnnce of nun who were thought to be sa closely identified with the old Republican par ty that they would be unable, even if they wunted to, to break away from the old traditions and the old associations. Indeed, the new party leaders expected hundreds of men who believe in the commandment, "Thou Shalt Not Steal," to still identify themselves with the Taft wing of the Republican part. The reports show, however, that hun dreds of uhltitue Republican leaders and many former Democrats participated in the comity conventions. At Owensboro George W.
