SUCCESSOR FOR LATE ARCHBISHOP BOURGADE Father Mandaiarl of This City Has Been Suggested But Jesuit Order Forbids the Honor. MANY IN ATTENDANCE' AT FUNERAL SERVICES Clergv and Laymen From ail Parts of the Territory Are Preient Body Will Not be Burled Un til Saturday That Friends May View It. Equal with the universal sorrow which Is felt all over the southwest at the Uea.h of Archbishop Pierre Bourgade, is the Interest which U be ing manifested by both clergy and laymen of the Catholic church in his probable successor. The name of Rev. Father A. Man darali, pastor of the Immaculate Conception church, is frequently men tioned in this connection by Catholics of this city, but It is stated on good uuttlior.ty that Father Mandaiarl could not accept the honor were it tendered him, because of th- -U rules of the Jesuit order to i he belongs. The order forbids Its mem bers to accept any honor, other than the priesthood, from either church or slate. So far as is known, there is only one bishop in the enUre order. fruitier Mandaiarl left yesterday for Santa Fe to be present at the tunerul of the archbishop. It is said in Santa Fs that Bishop J. U. Pi-aval, who was the assistant of the archbishop and who in fact carried the burden of the office for the past year, during which the arch, bishop was ill. Is considered as the logical one for the higher office. He Is familiar with its duties and has the confidence of the people in the diocese. Rev. Father A. Fourchegu, vicar general at Santa Fe, may be made a bishop. However, there is no rule of succession whereby such promotions are at all assured. Bishop Pitaval, It Is wild, was appointed to his present position only as an assistant to the late archbishop, but not with the right of succession. There Is nothing. however, to prevent his appointment to the position. The usual form of making the ap polntments Is for the bishops In the archdiocese to select the names of Several of the clergy most eligible for the high office. These names are submitted to the archbishops of the country. From the list of names the archbishops then select three name and thwc are again submitted to the pope. The pope then names the arch bishop, almost Invariably choslng one of the three names submitted, al though he Is not bound to do so. It will be some months yet before the name of the new archbishop in announced. It Is reasonably sure that he will be selected from among the clergy of the southwest, who are con. versant not only with the language and customs of the English speaking people, but also with those of the Spanish and Mexican descent Ikxly Reaches New MrxW-o. All that Is mortal of the late arch bishop will arrive at La my Junction late this afternoon on Santa Fe pa Jtenger train No. 1. The body will reach Santa Fe about 7 n'clot-k tonight. It will be received at Lamy by Bishop J. B. Pitaval and several clergymen. At Santa Fe Rev. Antonio Four chegu, vicar general, with Mayor Jose P. Sena and others prominent In city ami business Affairs, will meet the body at the station. The body will he conveyed to the cathedral and received there by Blsh. op N. C Mat, senior bishop of the archdioceses. Surrounded by l'ghtel candles, with nembers of the clergy i kneeling In silence before the com munion rail, the remains of the vet eran archbishop will lie In state to night and tomorrow morning. At 9 o'clock tomorrow morning the bells of the three Catholic churches of the city will begin to toll and solemn requiem high mass will : be said by B:hop M. C. Mat, assist ed by the clergy and attended by peo. pie from Santa Fe and from all parts of New Mexico. ' Hundreds of requests have heen re. celved for permission to view the ho.Jy before It Is laid ;o Its last rest, by the many friends of the arch bishop. Therefore the body will not he burled until Saturdly morning. It will lie in stat" In the rathe. Ira! so that all who desire may have a chance lo pay the last tribute t the dead. Father Antonio Fnurchegti, at S oclock Saturday morning, w'll my an. other requiem mass, after which the body will be laid away In the vault beneath the high altar of the cathe dral, where lies the body of Bishop Lamy and of Vicar General Egulllln. i APPROPRIATE EMBLEM FOR THE DEM OCRATIC PARTY IN NEW MEXICO.
