when Arthur held his first public reception
in the White House. General Arthur made
his home at the residence of Senator Jones

CARDINAL VAUGHAN A

College of Cardinals Is Said to

Believed That Selection of an Enj

Great Access of

SPECIAL- BT CABLE.
London, July II. A prominent British
Catholic layman, who recently returned
from a lengthy tls't to the Vatican, de
clares that Cardinal John Vaughan, Arch-
3T bishop of "Westminster who la known to
a bo ono of the Pope's favorites, and a per-
1 iona crata to his fellow Cardinals may be
Gi .o-n n: one of the "stroncest possibili
ties" for the succession to St. Peter's chatr.
The announcement, coming from the
source that It does, is of significance, as
it has hitherto been considered Inevitable
that the Italians, who preponderate In
the College of Cardinals, should once more
exclude foreigners and select one of their
own number to be the next wearer of the
papal crown. But It Is sfnted. and with
aome show of authority, that a majority ot
tho Italians are favorable to the placing or
the papal crown on the head of an EngliEn
roan when tho present aged prisoner of the
Vatican" shall have laid It aside forever.
To the world-dominance of the Anglo
Saxon race Is due the departure from con
servatism of the Italian members of the
famous "seventy." For long the keen ob
servers at the Vatican have been watch
ing the rapid onward march of the all-conquering
race, and It may well be that the
lesson of the decay of the Latin races has
not been lost even In the Eternal City It
self. CothollcUm in England.
Then again, the rapid growth of Catholi
cism In this land and in Britain and Can
ada, and the supreme importance to tho
Church of Its Anglo-Saxon members win
have been reckoned among the Influences
which have Induced the Italian Cardinals

The battle of HIadnsbui(r. where tho
American troops had hurried to mett the
Krltlsn, under General Koss and Admiral
Cockbum. began at 1 o'clocK and ended at

8 p. m. In addition to the burning of the

battle, and tho entry of the Invaders. Mrs

was driven rnpidlv to Georgetown Helshts.

Flon which followed, nearly 100 British were
killed and wounded. On the heels of this
came a tornado, such as Washington has
never known before or since. Great dam
age was done. It is not unlikely that the
explosion and the tornado had much to do
with the British retreat, the disasters serv

President Slcn. Treatr of react.
It was to "The Octagon" that the news
of ceace came six months after the flight
from the White House, and It was there
that tho treaty of Ghent was considered by
the President and his Cabinet, and signed
on December St. IS14. The treaty was rati

The wanton destruction of the White
House, the Capitol and other public build
ings was before two weeks had passed
avenged by the death of the Britirh com
manding General, the repulse of the Kng
llsh troops at Baltimore: their defeat at
Plattsburc. and the surrender of their net
on Lake Champlaln. To the credit of the
English. It may be said that the outrage
was stigmatized in Parliament "as an en
terprise, of all recorded in all the annals
of war which most exasperated the people
and least weakened the Government.''
The corner stone of the White House was
laid October 13. 1732. and when occupied by
President John Adams upon his arrival In
the capital. November 1. 1S00. was not
quite completed. It was modeled after the
palace of the Duke of Lelnster. and after
the fire was rebuilt upon plans furnished
by Captain Hohan. the architect of the
original building.
to consider an Englishman as the possible
head of the church whose spiritual sway Ik
owned by nearly IiO.000,000 people.
This selection of an English-born and
Ei gllsh-speaklng Pontiff would yield to the
church both here and In greater Britain an
incalculable access of prestige, and give to
her various activities an Immense Impetus.
To bring back to the fold the English "sej
aratcd brethren" has been the darling wish
of the "Mother Church" and the pious aspi
ration of every Pope since the Reformation
days. A long step will have been taken to
the desired goal by the elevation of an
Englishman to the popedom.
These considerations will not have been
lost sight of by the astute politicians ot the
Vatican, some of whom are conceded to be
second to none among the diplomat-) of tho
day.
That Cardinal Vaughan Is the most con
spicuously lit possible successor to the
Papal chair among English-speaking pos
sibles, is admitted by manv. He would. It
Is predicted, be a great Pope as be Is a
great (cardinal.
He linn rvo Enemies.
Wholly without enemies, a deep thinker,
an accomplished scholar, with the gift of
a fluent and elegant pen. and an eloquent
speaker, his reign would add a luster to the
church. HLs presence Is strikingly hand
some and Imposing earning for ilm the
description, "the handsomest man in Lon
don'sand he would make a regally im
pressive pontiff.
The Cardinal is a militant ecclesiastic ot
tho finest tp& Masterfully strong, with
the strength born of unfaltering convic
tion and of that ability that will out. he Is
withal gentle with the gracious gentleness
of tho strong, and his courtly court sy Is
unfailing Possessed of a remarkable talent
for organlzntlcn. he Is a striking contrast
to his predecessor, the late Cardinal Man
ning, who was more attracted by l.ubllc
affairs and social questions than by the
administration of the Archdiocese ot Vest
minster Manning was of an easy-going disposition,
while his successor Is an Incessant worker,
full of restless energy and painstaking al
most to a fault. Vaughan. like all born
organizers, has surrounded himself with a
tod guard of clever, strenuous men who
serve him with rare .fidelity. "One can work
forever for such a man." enthusiastically
Bald ono of his trusted helpers.
Although not afflicted with any-serious
malady, the Cardinal Is by no means ro
bust and he his frequently of late jcars
been laid aside by illness for brief periods.
Hut "they live longest who are oftenest
111." and his Intimates declare that he U
good for at least twenty more years he Is
70 of mental activity.
Ills Many Service.
Among the outstanding services which
Cardinal Vaughan has rendered to his
church are: The erection of a superb cathe
dral In London (near "Westminster Abbev).
the thorough organization of the prtmlcr
archdiocese and the invlgoratlon of the en
tire church In Britain. The new cathedral, i
built at a large cost, supersedes the pro- !
cathedral. Kensington. I
Bernard Vaughan. the celebrated Jesuit 1
pulpit orator. Is a jounger brother of th I
Cardinal. The "enchanting preacher," as I
he has been described, was transferred from I
Manchester last year to London and as- j
signed to the Church of the Immaculate I
Conception In Farm Street, an offshoot of 1
Berkeley Square. 'I
That famous sanctuary, which adjoins 1
Lord Roscbery's townresldence. Is that to
which Lord Beaconsfleld went with Robert ,
Orange (according to the "School for ;
Ealnts"). Readers of that book will rexnexn- i
ber the vivid description of the great Jew-
Ish statesman's feelings during the service ,
of the Bona Mors (Happy Death). ,
The church is situated In the center of the '
most aristocratic section of London. Is mtn-
lstered to by such distinguished and schol- I
nxly men as Father Gavin S. J., and at- J
tended by many of the nobility.
