GOODWIN'S WEEKLY 3
selves summer resorts. In that respect Alaska
has more to offer than any other region for her
mountains arc most majestic, and the glacier
has hewed out a thousand wonderful valleys.
It was a groat purchase.
Bishop Scanlan
A PICTURE of the great cathedral, which
will be dedicated tomorrow, is seen on
our first page. It is the monument to a
tireless, indomitable, capable, self-sacrificing man,
who, in his youth consecrated his life to the
work of the Master, and whose accounts have
been balanced nightly since, and the balances
carried to his credit in the great ledger beyond
the stars.
In his youth he chose the desert for his field;
he worked without recompense; in rough fields he
bore the banners of the Master; he disarmed
those who made light of his work by the very
impressiveness of his sincerity, and hushed
scoffers by a life which was at once above fear
and above reproach.
By hard work, when this region was very
"pool, he built a little church, established an or
1 phanage, helped establish a hospital, saw to the
schools for both sexes of the children of parents
of his faith and just simply worked on, and on
and on.
At last when fortunes began to be accumu
lated here, some of the members of his flock
began to ask for a more stately house of worship.
His reply in substance was: "We are doing
very well. If you want something finer bring
me the money, for I will not ask the poor of my
flock for what, if given, might bring distress to
the givers."
Then contributions began to come, most gen
erous ones, and coincident with that the founda
tions of the new great cathedral began to take
form. It has required many years to complete it,
but It is finished, arid as it stands, it is, as we
said above, the monument to the Right Reverend
Bishop Lawrence Scanlan. "
But the bishop is just the same that he was
when a simple priest, traveling the desert on
foot, not always with enough to eat, and often
like the Master, having no place at night,
wherein to lay his head, and we suspect that
when the ceremonies of tomorrow shall be In
progress all the exultantlon in his heart will be
for his creed, that, personally, in his soul will
be ringing the words: "But will God in very
deed dwell with men on the earth? Behold, heav
en and. the heavens of heavens cannot contain
Thee; how much less th's house which I have
built?" And so we fancy he will be asking him
self if he ' i- done all he could have done, but
he will n. ., forget to prav for his people, and
we suspect the prayer will close as did the
other one: "Moreover, concerning the stranger,
which is not of Thy people Israel, but is come
from a far country for Thy great name's sake,
and Thy mighty hand, and Thy stretched out
I arm; if they come and pray In tills house; then
hear Thee from the heavens, oven from Thy
dwelling place, and do all that the stranger
I calleth to Thee for; that all the earth may know
Thy name, and fear Thee as does Thy people Is
rael, and may know that this house which I have
built is called by Thy name."
With him the great cathedral is but an in
j cident. He believes that he who serves his fel
low men best serves God best, and his work is
for man who is his brother, and he wants no re
ward hero for ho is working in the hope that he
may so live that when he wakes from the final
coma, the first words his soul will hear wil be:
"Welcome, good and faithful servant!"
A Bullfrog paper has located "Scotty's' mine
in Windy Gap. This is probably a polite way of
indicating that it is somewhere in the neighbor
hood of his mouth.
Then and Now I
' Blest and thrice blest the Roman
Who sees Rome's brightest day,
Who sees that long victorious pomp
Wind down the 'Sacred way,'
And through the bellowing Forum
And 'round the suppliant's grove
Up to the everlasting gates
Of Captolian Jove."
When Rome gave one o! her chieftains a tri
umph, the procession included prisoners led in
chains and the plunder of a conquered country,
carried in the procession.
The above rhapsody is taken, of course, from
Macauloy's description of one of those Roman
triumphs.
Wo had a triumph on Wednesday last, here
in Salt Lake. There were no captives in chains,
no chief in hU triumphal car, no spoils of war
on display.
But old Rome, in its almightiness, never had
a grander procession, never one that had a more
significant meaning. Macauley closed the poem,
from which the above is taken, after naming a
dozen other countries, all the same way, with
these words:
"Whore Atlas flings his shadow
O'er the Western foam,
Shall be great fear on all who hear,
The mighty name of Rome."
Cardinal Gibbons
Now Rome, with her centuries of rule, with
the sword carved out a great empire, never at
tained to half the majority or half the power
that attaches to our own country today. She
nation. She filled her place and then went to
decay because thero was no immortal principle
worth preserving in her fierce cai'eer.
Sho made her wars for conquest and for
spoils, to her the world, outside of her own peo
ple, was legitimate prey, and she was as cruel
in executing her decrees as is the tiger in the
jungle, or the bird of prey that feeds the hare
or the lamb.
A great war came to, our country that threat
ened its dismemberment. The young men of the
country sprang to Its defense. The struggle was
a supreme one, lasting four terrible years.
The land was saved, but the only triumph songs
sung Were songs of union and of peace. Thus
wero no captives led in chains, no spoils of war
displayed; the soldiers who fought the battles
