A PATRIOTIO PE5J+LAT, tleUrlag Address by Cardian ,Olbbeus While Coeter ln a Paltll t Mmweiws, Aug. S0.-Cardbiplt tibbons conferred the palliam on Archlbishop Katur to-day with most imposing core monies. A long procession of priests and church dignitaries proceeded to the eathe dral which was erowded with people, among them Cardinal Gibbous, sixteen bishops and two arobhbishops, At 10:15 the fNst strains of Beethoven's mass pealed from the great organ and the aislng of the large aadTenoe to their feet announced the arrival of the procession. The space reserved for priests was the inside sections of the center aisle, where they filed in. Following them came the bl'hots and archbishops in their pur ple robes, attended by their aoo lytes, who took seats within the chancel. The new archbishop, with purple cap and long purple robe aua train, came next, and last of all came Car dinal Gibbons in scarlet robe and train. Mass was celebrated by Bishop Boanoum, of Lincoln, Neb., the assistant priests being Vicar General Brady, of the St. Louis dio case Deacon Father Gulaki, and Sub-Den con Father Langener, of Marquette, Mich. The ceremony throughout was very impres sive. Before the close of the celebration Cardinal Gibbons stepped forward to the front of the sanctuary. In speaking he re ferred to the tide of Catholics which is con tinually pouring from the old world into America, and said: "Woe to him that would. stir up a spirit na tionalism in the leaders. 'Isabel, God and our country,' let this be own watch-word. Patriotism is a virtue approved and sanctified by the Heavenly Father. There is one country we love above all others, and that is the United States. Whether it be the land of our birth or adoption, it matters not." The address was patriotic in the extreme and would have been applauded had it been delivered elsewhere but in a church. After the cere mony the church dignitaries and clergy took carriages for St. Francis seminary, where thev partook of a banquet.. A LAND FIGHT. Dispute Over Some Valuable Ground Near Mount Helena. A land contest of conelderable interest to the citizens of Helena was begun in the United States land office yesterday. Robert A. Day contested the entry of Viola Hoyt for the southwest quarter of section 26, township 10 north, range 4 west, just west of Mount Helena. Having se cured the cancellation of the entry, Mr. Day was allowed to preempt the land, but when he appeared yesterday to make his final proof he was confronted by a protest filed by C. A. Broadwater, C. W. Cameron, R. Fload Jones, J. P. Porter, William Math, Mnasena Bullard and others, by Massena Ballard, their attorney, claiming the land under a placer location made in 1887. Nelson & Settles represent Mr. Day, and there is a prospect of a lively contest when this case is called for hearing in the I land office. ____ ____ t A COMING FIGHT. The Black Pearl Will Try to Stop Ike Hayes, of This City, in Eight Rounds. There are Rood prospects of a lively glove fight in Helena next week. The Black Pearl, who whipped Joe Ellingeworth in Minneapolis last month, is now in Butte where he will fight Connors Saturday night. Yesterday he sent $200 to Helena to bet that he could stop Ike Hayes, of this city, in eight rounds. The money which was in Bob Teeple's hands was instantly covered and it is probable that the affair will come off next Wednesday night. The Pearl will find that he has undertaken a very large contract indeed. Hayes is the cleverest colored fighter in the northwest. He has whipped every man who has ap peared against him in Montana and has won several fights in Dakota and Wash ington. Change In the Marshal's Office. United States Marshal Wm. F.
