VOL. 11 NO. 306 PERTH AMBOY, N. J., THURSDAY, JULY 30, 1903 SECOND EDITION HUNDREDS ATTEND SOLEMN HIGH MASS. St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church was Crowded with both Catho lics and Protestants This Morning When a Solemn High Mass of Requiem was Said for the Repose of the Soul of the Pope. Catholics and protestants alike united in honoring the memory of Pope Leo XIII at the solemn high mass said in St. Mary's church at ? e'clook this morning for the lepose o the soul of the departed Pontiff. The church was crowded. Long before the mass commenced there was hard y standing room to be found. The mass was sung by Rev. S. A. Mitchell, assisted by Rev. B. T. O'Connell and T. F. Blake. In the middle of the main aisle near the centre of the altar was placed the catafalque, surrounding this was four large brass candle sticks. Larue streamers of purple and black covered the ceiling and altar. Right over the catafalque, suspended by so slender,^ wire that it seemed to be soaring high and higher with every puff of air, was a pure white dove. At the end of the mass the priosts, followed by the altar boys, walked down the aisle to the catafalque when Father Mitchell said the last prayer for the repose of the dead pontiff's soul. After the mass Father O Connell addressed the congregation at some length on the life of '.the dead Pope. He said in part : ' ' We are gathered here today , my dear friends, for the last time out of respeot of one who has left, and I feel in common with the catholics all over the world a great sorrow for the death of Leo XIII, who was a great man and was respected all over the woi^u, not only by those of his own religion, but by many others. He was born in 1810 in the year when Pope Pius VII occu pied the chair of St. Peter, and was five years old at the time of the battle of Waterloo which decided the fate of Europe- After going through the necessary schools and colleges, he was ordained a priest when he was twenty - seven years old. He was not assigned to any regular position, but did the j good work in different places. Eleven years later he was made a bishop and shortly afterwards he was made a cardinal. "In the year of 1878, when he was an old man of sixty-eight, he was made Pope and since that time lias faithfully served in that position. e has done many things, n<# only for the church, but for the State also. Some time ago when the discussion arose in the church about the differ ent church orders, and many people were commenting on the way the holy fathers of these orders lived, saying - that in this world of hurry and bustle at the present time, everyone should be working and that they did no see what good oould come out of one shutting himself up in a room. The great Leo easily settled this by saying that, as the dew was necessary on the flowers, so was the holy orders neces sary to the church. He explained the matter thoroughly to the discontented ones and sinoe then there has been no discussion. " In speaking about the Pope's death Father O'Connell said : "When Leo XIII felt that he was going to die, he cautioned the doctor not to forget to let him know when the last hour had arrived, as he hart very important business to attend to, and that he must do it before he left this world." Father O'Connell explained how the Pontiff got out of bed, fixed up the papers which were necessary to the ohuroh, then was lifted back to the bed wnere he was confined until he died. ?* "His body has been placed where no more mortal eye will ever look upon it, but his spirit is alive, and will live forever, not onlv in the catholic ohuroh, but everywhere, for Leo XIII was a great man. " The service in all lasted about an hour and a half. TROLLEY CO. IS LIABLE. Freeholders Score First Victory over Middlesex & Somerset i Traction Company. COMPANY'S FRANCHISE. New Brunswick, July 30: ? The free holders scored one on the Middlesex & Somerset Traction Company yes terday in the matter of the Albany street bridge injunction asked foi by the company. Vice Chancellor Stevens heard the argument and yesterday ordered that the trolley company should give a bond in $20,000 to the board to indemnity the county against any damages that might result by reason of accidents on the bridge. The Vice Chancellor intimated that the ordinance giving the trolley com pany the franchise over the bridge equired them to maintain the string ers over the draw span and drawbridge as well as the planking on the stringers and that this planking should be kopt smooth by them. He did not decide the question of the right of the county to turn off the drawbridge and stop cars should the company not keep its contract, but will decide this next Tuesday. The company was given permission to submit affidavits on this. County Solicitor Willis and Lawyer Alan H. Strong for the county submitted 11 affidavits.
