There was n pleasant little interlude at
WiulackN Theater, New York, Saturday
night, during the pcrformanco of H 'tic

from pit to dome, and between the tecond
and third acts Mr, llouclcaul t v is presented
with a statuette representing hlin In the

by a commlttco appointed by Iho donors.

Roger' new group of tin Shnughraun,"
which Is destined to rival In popularity his
"Hip Van YV'lnklo." At nn artistic produ

Ttie IHftnlty 'onrerrs-l Upon Arch
.New York lieratd
According to nrivlcc front Koine thy
Pope litis at ln.t ruiolvctl to confer tin
dijrnltyor cartllniil upon nn A inr-rlcsiii
na-lalo. Tlivre will ws a consistory at
KxiUt, and atiioiio; thu new cardinals will
be Ur. .Manning, ArcIiblMioti of West
minster, and thu licatl of the Catholic
C'liiircliln Kiuil.md, and Dr. .McClokcr,
ArclibMiop of Now York, who, if this
nuwti proves true, will bccoincllie head of
the Cfiurcli In America. Although the
atiioIiitincnt or I)r .McCloskey to this
IiIkIi place lias not Iieeii ollicinlly nn
notiiiccd, the liitclllKcnco conies to m
with fii) many nsittraticcs of truth and
with io many contlrmatory circiitixtnu
ecu that We are disposed to accept It, to
congratulate thu Catholic Church upon
this mark of Pontifical cotiildcncc and
the venerablu prelate who has to long
presided over the Church In Saw York
upon lieintr tho llr.t prelate In thn stmcri
can Church who has ever rer-elvcd the
hhrhest olllce In the ulft of the Pope.
The act of Ills Holiness, hi making' this
appointment 111 he received with uni
versal tatlsfactlon by the American jm-o-ple,
without regard to their faith. The
tact that hi Ihe award of episcopal distil
tie.' to the American clergy the olllce of
cardinal has never h'en Ixftowed, Is ln
can(j the llomati See has always regard
ed the Church In the I'lilltd t'atc ih it
miislonary cntcrprNe, like the Church In
Xew Zealand and Australia. This h
been true for the larger part of our na
tional exhtence. Nothing could be mure
unwise nr unucccpvary than to nominate
a cardinal to a rude, w lid, freh coiintrj-,
without meaiie to support It dignity. A
titles go in foreign lands the olllcu of car
dinal H us high as that of
a duke or a prince. Hut
thl? objection died away as the country
grew In projperltv and wealth. Ne.w
York I more of n Catholic city than Lon
don, and rpille as able to siHLaln it rat'
dlual. The Church In this country Is
rich, powerful and loyal to the Pope.
Americans felt that it was rather a re
proach to America that cardinals thould
ou given to Ireland mid England, while
here, where the Church H Mrongcr and
a; faithful In allegiance, the olllce should
not be permitted. This feeling grew
when it was seen that Ills Ilollne.-n could
make a cardinal nut ot a young and rath
er indifferent prict because he was the
cousin of Emperor Napoleon. Tho criti
cism was made that Vatican Inl1ucnce.s
surrounded the Pope and led him to se
lect cardinal, from Italian priests; that
Italian families ruled the Holy See; that
what we. In our political dialect,
call a "ring," had been formed, and
that, perhaps, our Kcpublican form of
government ruled us out of the good
grace? of a Po? who had been an actual
monarch most of his life, and who claim
ed to be a monarch now. Consequently
thu nomination of an American cardinal
removes these fears, and glws America,
in Catholic eyes, the rank accorded to
the greatest nations of the earth.
1th this view of the case the nomina
tion of an American cardinal will bo
welcomed by men of every creed. Catho
lics III be glad to feel that the honor
lias fallen upon Dr. McCloekey. He will
administer the duties of Ills Illustrious
station with honor anil high repute, with
the best regard for the lnterets of the
Church and for the tame of his nathe
