GIVEN GOLD ROSARY ? ? i Presentation Feature of Cardinal Gibbons' Jubilee. HOLY NAME CONVENTION : Delegates of Society Present From Nearly Every State. BIG PARADE THIS AFTERNOON Prominent Catholic Divines Assembled in Baltimore to Pay Tribute to Prelate. BALTIMORE, >fd., October 16.?The opening of the lirst national congress ot the Holy Name Society and the presentation of a golden rosary to Cardinal Gibbons constituted the chief features today in the cardinal's dual iubilee celebration. I The rosary is composed of gold nu?i gets mined by a Newfoundland miner. J and was presented to the cardinal by the Knights of Columbus of America. At the same time the cardinal received a set ot engrossed resolutions of congratulation passed by the national organization of the knights. A mass at 7 o'clock this morning in all the Catholic churches of the city for the delegates preceded the opening of the Holy Name Congress, which later assem! bled at the Lyric. Bishop O. B. Corrigan of this city presided and Cardinal Gibbons delivered an address. Represent 600,000 Members. Delegates of the society are in attendance from nearly every state in the Union, representing a membership of tSOb.OOO men. The chief object of the society, which was formed in the thirteenth century, is to suppress profanity and blasphemy and to inst.ll a greater reverence in the hearts of its members for things divine. In connection with the congress, the Very Rev. Charles H. McKenna of New York city, the veteran Dominican missionary, who revived the society in America, more than forty years ago, addressed the v.siting members of the hierarchy at Calvert College. Other events arranged for today are the jubilee parade this afternoon and solemn vespers at the cathedral in the evening, at which Bishop P. J. Donohue of Wheeling, W. Va., will preach. In the cathedral here, where, flftj years ago. he was ordained a priest, then successively consecrated a bishop, invested with the pallium of an archbishop and twenty-five years after his ordinatior rece.ved the red beretta of a cardinal, Cardinal Gibbons yesterday received homage from illustrious prelates and laymen from all parts of this country and foreign lands. Cardinal Celebrates Mass. The ecclesiastical celebration of the cardinal's dual jubilee began in the morning with pontifical high mass, cele brated bv the cardinal, with Rev. Dr. William A. Fletcher, rector of the cathedral. as deacon, and Rev. F. C. Gavan chancellor of the archdiocese, subdeacon Archbishop John J. Glennon of St Ixiuis delivered the sermon, which was an eloquent tribute to the head of the American church. The music was chiefly Gregorian though there were intervals of figured music, and orchestral instruments were employed In the choir. The decorations were confined to the sanctuary. The main altar was ablaze with hundreds oi candies and radiant with thousands oi Bermuda lilies. Over the altar were th< arms of the church, with the dates of the jubilee. 1861. 1886 and 1911. In the procession, which for impressiveness probably never has been surpassed in this country, were nine of America's I twelve archbishops and about thirty bishops. Included among the archbishops were Diomede Falconlo, the apostolic delegate, and Paul Bruchesi of Montreal. Among tlie bishops was Hugh MacSherry of South Africa, There were three civilians In the line. One was .V. E. Mankins of New York, who received the decoration of knighthood In the Order of St. Gregory, at the hands of the Pope. He wore a scarlet waistcoat, on which gleamed a number of jeweled decorations he has received. The other two civilians were Aristides Leonard; of Rome and Edward du Met of Philadelphia, both of whom wore the scarlet coats of apostolic chancellors and marched beside the apostolic delegate. Address of Falconio. Following the mass, dinner was serve* to the visiting clergy at St. Mary's Seminary. In response to a toast proposed for Pope Pius, Archbishop Falconio, the papal delegate, said that up to the time of the present pontiff's election "society at large was distracted by a spirit of innovation and unwholesome liberty; that a vastly extended and most dangerous organization of modernistic ideas was undermining the most fundamental truths of the Christian religion and that prob; lems oi the highest importance tor the 1 welfare of the church and of society were ! awaiting a speedy solution. | "There was required then." said the | archbishop, "a man of apostolic zeal, a I man coming from the ranks of the peo! pie. who could fully understand their | wants and direct the movements of the | advancing democracy; a- man of Chris; tian courage and of stern determination, I able to protect the rights of the church i and religious liberty against irreligous > lee station and atheism. And God nro vided the church with such a providential man in the person of Pius X, whose energetic action in the administration of the church has been so beneficial to religion." The papal delegate thanked the American Catholics for their "well known loyalty to the holy .see," and offered to Cardinal Gibbons his felicitations on the occasion of his twofold jubilee, giving him high praise for his "glorious career." Tribute of Farley. > Archbishop John M. Farley of New ! York, in lauding the cardinal for what he | had accomplished for their Catholic faith [ in America, expressed the hope that t eventually he would be seated upon the t throne of the Vatican. In response to the toast to the Presit dent of the United States, Archbishop [ John Ireland of St. Paul said that Presi\ dent Taft had not discriminated against Cathoilcs, and that while he had given them no more than their due, they were , grateful to him. > The cardinal, rising at the end of the dinner, said that the prejudices which formerly existed against Catholicism in this country were almost exterminated. He charged the bishops and archbishops around him with the command to garner by the end of another fifty years 100,000,000 souls for the Catholic church in this country.
