The ?l?vation of the America i Arch
bishop Gibbous to tho position of Cardi
nal ol the Bonum Catholic Chureh u
your ago, and the impressive ceremony
which took place at Home last week arc
notable events in tho religions history of
this country. The new cardinal, nu
adopted son of the iSoutii, possesses, to
tho highest degree, tho respect and
esteem of all sects, and the brief de
scription now given of the proceedings
of thc Consistory at which the red hat
was bestowed upon him will prove inter
The ceremonial was held in thc main
hall of the Vatican in front of thc Papal ]
Throne, in semi circular form around
this was arranged the chairs tor tho
Cardinals, presenting u scene picturesque
in the extreme. Tho auditory was
thronged with u favored assembly, ad
mitted by cards, and made up of tho
most noted people in thc Holy City.
The Tope, clad in white, with a face
beaming with benevolence, gave much
strength to the Church's claim of tho
Vicarship in its spiritual head. Before
the Consistory opened, tho oath was ad
ministered to seven Cardinals, conspicu
ous among whom was Cardinal Qibbous.
Then tho doors of thc private chamber
were opened and the procession entered
tho malu hall, passing the throne with
bowed hoads and uttering a prayer suit
able to tho occasion.
The papal chair used upon all such
occasions is modeled after the chair of
the ancient Roman Senator, commemor
ative ot tho chair presontcd to St. Peter
by the ?Senator Pedous upon his con
version to Christianity. In front, be
hind and on either side of tho l'ope were
tin Noblo Guard. Tho ilabobolh, or tall
ostrich plumes, were carried beside the
canopy. The l'ope, looking pale and
feeble) after being scated on thc throne,
raised his right arm tremblingly and
gave his blessing.
Following are the name-, of the new
cardinals: Cardinal Gonzales came first,
followed by Cardinals Bernadou, Maz
zella and Giordani, in tho order named.
Cardinal Gibbons'? sponsors were Car
dinals Moichcra and Maz/.ellu. As pre
sented each cardinal made his three
obeisances, then knelt and kissed the
cross on tho Pope's slipper and next bis
hand, in token of humiliation and obe
Tho seven new ecclesiastical princes
now approached tho throne in the order
that had been assigned them. The ninn
tellotta or short red cape of each was
drawn up over the shoulders und gath
ered about tho head, and as he knelt at
thc foot of tho Pope a master of cere
monies held above his head the broad,
red tasseled hat. Then tho l'ope, lean
ing forward, hold his hands outspread
above thc kneeling UglU'0 w hile he utter
ed a prayer in Latin.
After the prnyor each newly made
Cardinal was embraced l>y the l'ope and
when he hnd embraced nfl his colleagues
he proceeded to the chair which bad
been assigned him and took his seat,
Wearing his bcrctta, all tho other Cardi
nals remaining standing and uncovered,
the idea thus illustrated being that the
new prince of the church, having re
ceived his hat from the hands of the
Popo, had become tho equal of ail the
others. When the hist ot tho seven had
made tho tour of the semicircle tho Pope
rose and gave his pontifical blessing to
priests and people, alter which he was
escorted from the hall and into tho hull
of tho paramonti by all tho Cardinals.
Cardinal Gibbons received many con
gratulatory telegrams and heaps of
