Mgr. Satolli would be criatcd a cardinal
at the consistory to be hi.'d in Rome about
tbe middle of Nut ember.
The date of the contocatlon lias not yet
been promulgated, but Mgr. Satolli will
not go to Rome for the purpose or beiig
invented with the lesiguia of Ids new oi
rice. Cardinal Gibbous will act for the
Pope, nnd Mgr. hbarretll. auditor of the
papal ligation, will act as papal ablegate
on the occasion.
GIVE IT TO THE CARDINAL.
The beretta will be brought from Rome
by a member of the Noble Guard, and de

it to, Cardinal Gibbons ut the time or the
ceremony. The niissenger earning the
beretta will lc.it e Rome me day arter the

The Information or tbe Pone's intention
was conveyed to Mgr. Satolli in a confiden

celt ed at. the legation on Monday last. This
morning Cardinal Gibbons received the
followjnc cablegiam Jroni Rome;
"To The Most Eminent Cardinal Gibbons,

"I am happy to inform you that the Holy

will n main in Aim rica. but after the
imposition of the beretta he will take
the title of pro delegate, the practices of
the church not wnrrantiLg a cardinal in
occupying the iiositioii of delegate.
The honor eciucs to i"gr. Eatolli almost
coincident with the third nnnlversarv
of his arrival Hi the Unit tl States and his
entering upon the duties of papal delegate.
While the same advancement in rank is
osuallv given to these holding similar posi

riod somewhat in adtance of the usuil time.
aud is rccognizid as a mark of approbation
and appreciation by the Holy Father of his
sertices In this country.
Tbe ceremony of conferring the beretta,
owing to the distance from Rome at which
the new cardinal is located, will differ
in detail somewhat from those ued in this
connection. The ordinary method is for
the Pope to send an ablegate from Rome
to carry the licretta.
