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
"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
?* "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.
Freeholders Score First Victory
over Middlesex & Somerset i
Traction Company.
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.
