Archbishop Ireland of Minneapolis
Celebrates His Golden '
ST. PAUL, Minn., Dec. 21. —To-j
day marked the fiftieth anniversary
of Archbishop Ireland's ordination
to the priesthood. In deference to
the expressed wish of the Archbishop
no elaborate celebration of the gold
en jubilee was held, but the flood of
congratulatory messages received
during the day from archbishops,
bishops, priests and prominent lay
men throughout America afforded
eloquent testimony of the love, re
spect and veneration in which the
eminent St. Paul prelate is held by
the people of all classes.
Archbishop Ireland passed his
seventy-third birthday anniversary
on September 11 last, but both men
tally and physically appears to be in
the prime of life. His hair is iron
gray, and there are furrows in his
forehead, but the casual observer \
liuld not guess his age at more j
in 60. |
Given Purse of $100,000.
The priests of the diocese have |
ssented Archbishop Ireland with a
rse of $100,000 in celebration of!
his golden jubilee. That the whole [
or at least the greater part of this
large sum will be distributed in char
ity is regarder as certain by all those
who are familiar with the extreme
•generosity of the Archbishop.
A priest who acted as Archbishop
Ireland's secretary for some years is
authority for the statement that the
prelate never turned a beggar from
his door absolutely empty handed.
He gives money to them with slight
questioning, and seldom in amounts
less than $1, the amount often being
as high as $5 or $10. It is related
of him that one evening in winter a
forlorn-looking man came to his
door and asked for a quarter.
Fumbling in his pockets for a minute
the Archbishop brought up a $2 0
gold piece, and, handing it to the
man with a smile, said, "That is a
little more than you need tonight.
Take it, use what you have to, and
make the remainder the nucleus for
the fortune which you have it in
your power to win."
tGave Away Library.
Some years ago Archbishop Ire
id was the possessor of the finest
rary in the Northwest. Shortly
after the Hill seminary at McAlester
got under way as a great education
al institution it found itself much in
need of books of references. The
matter having been called to the
attention of the Archbishop, he, with
out the slightest hesitation, ordered
his own library to be sent to the in
stitution. His order wa sobeyed,
and, with the exception of a dozen
books, the whole valuable collec
tion has ever since remained at the
disposal of the students.
