Presentation Feature of Cardinal
Gibbons' Jubilee.
Delegates of Society Present From
Nearly Every State.
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.

Shorty McCabe Again!
i Sewell Ford enlightens our next Sunday
' Magazine with one of his tine Shorty
| McCabc stories. "Barton's Primrose
Plunge." Poor Barton had been pestered
by a somewhat narrow and puritanicwife,
and when she finally departed this
1 lite the longing husband -proceeded to
sow a large acreage of wild oats. All the
while, however, he was inwardly chafing
at the strange fetters the gay life was
forging about his inherently Innocent
personality. And so he was not entirely
displeased when Angelina. Murdock,
agent for a votes for women organization,
a former intimate of his wife, took up the
reins of his somewhat crimson life and
proceeded to set him straight again. Of
course Shorty was the good angel standing
by pdor Barton through all his experiences.
The tale is funny and full of
! Shorty sidelights.

' Nothing is more astonishing to th
average government official than the ig
1 norance that many people display whei
writing to the various government de
partrncnts on off! rial business.
Some of them, for instance, fancy tlia
the Department of Justice has ccontrol o
the courts, and that the federal judge
have to do about as the department says
' Others try to sell their inventions t<
the patent office, or ask it to take u
their Ideas and place them on the marke
on a commission basis.
Write for Clover Seed.
Still others write to the Department u
Agriculture for a bushel of clover tec
: or a bag of wheat.
One hopeful sign, however, is the fac
that this Bort ot' correspondence shows ;
tendency to fall off. People are bcginntni
! to see the advantage of knowing hov
their government 1b operated; of knowin(
; what it is doing in their behalf.
