Dean Thomas Mackin
75 PRIESTS TAKE PART
High Tribute Paid Deceased Pastor
in Sermon by Bishop
A notable tribute was paid to
the life of Very Rev. Dean Mackin at
the services over his remains held this
morning at 10 o'clock at St. Joseph's
church. Fourteenth street and Second
avenue. Rarely bas there been as
large an outpouring of the masses on
such a sorrowful occasion. The mourn
ers came from all walks of life and
represented all religious beliefs. He was
a popular priest and citizen. All are
grieved at the ending of his earthly ex
istence. The church was filled to every inch
of seating and standing room fully a
half hour before tLc beginning of the
'tellect and heart. These endeared him
jto Catholic and non-Catholic alike. He
never ' complained. He was light-
hearted and cheerful under the heav
iest burden. He had a mission and he
was true to that mission. He brought
to that mission a sound mind and a
sound body. He was never idle. He
hardly ever took a vacation. He had
enough to do at home. He loved his
people, and he wished to live and labor
among them. His talents and industry
won him high honors in the universi
ties where he attained his earlier edu
cation. His abilities were recognized
by his ecclesiastical superiors. He was
a great student. He was thorough from
his A B. Cs to canoe law. He was an
American, though cherishing a mother
love for the land of his birth across the
seas. He was. indeed, a strenuous
American, strenuous in every fibre of
Mnwicr From lliihop.
Bishop O'Reilly, assistant to Bishop
Spalding, conveyed the condolences of
his superior to the congregation.
Bishop Spalding would have been
present to give his message of tribute
were he able to. but his illness pre
vented. Bishop O'Reil'.y said Father
Mackin was known and appreciated by
the head of the diocese. He had been
a good and faithful priest. More could
not be said of any man of his calling.

eereiiionk'S. Hunilreds stood in thj ".riller stoxl ii llu -ntratice of Hie
streets and waited until the service church while the body was carried to
had b-'n concluded that they might , the hoarse. The body was conveyed
get a last glance at the features of the ; to the Kock Island dopot by ruder-
beloved pastor. There was a proces- taker C. H. Wheelan and placed on the
sion of children from the public j noon train for Chicago. The pallbear
schx)l.s all those wishing to view theiers were:
remains having been excused by order
of the board of education. These wait
ed on Fourteenth street until t ho dis
missal of the audience in the church,
and then they marched through and
took a parting look at the priest and
passed through the retir door of the
sanctuary. The pupils of the Villa de
Chantal paid a like mark of respect.
Secul-I'lvc I'rifMtn Attend.
Seventy-five priests, from Illinois and
Iowa, were in attendance. It was a
most impressive scene, all the clergy
men attired in their robes of officii and
chanting 'he mass for the dead, this
ceremony preceding the high mass of
requiem that was celebrated by Very
Rev. M. YVeldon, V. G., of Blooming
ton. A special augmented choir sang
beautifully the Gregorian chant, the
"Sanctus." "Stabat Mater." and '"Lead.
Kindly Light." Mrs. T. B. Iteidy gave
the offertory. "He Was a Man of Sor
rows," and Mrs. Mae Richards-Casey
sang "That Sweet Story of Old." As
sisting in the singing were V. K.
Moody and J. I. Hebert. of Da veniort.
The church interior was bedecked with
mourning, while tho chancel rail was
covered with flowers and palms, of
which there was a sumptuous array.
Assisting Father Weldon in the cele
bration of the mass were:

Bishop Davis said no higher nor more
fitting eulogy could be paid to the de
parted pastor than the message of
Saint Paul in his second epistle: "I
have fought a good fight; I have finish
ed my course; I have kept the faith."
Bishop Davis said: "Father Mackin
worked and labored unceasingly. He
was a true ambassador of his God. He
was always true to his vocation a call
ing from God to a noble service. He
was kindly and charitable towards all
men, regardless of their religious 1k
liefs. There was none more consid
erate or indulgent of his people- There
was nothing narrow or bigoted in his
heart. There was cot in him that
spirit of cruel intolerance that differ
ences in religions belief too often de
velop in men. There is nothing sadder
than this spirit which drives men to
madness, and sometimes to bloodshed.
