GIBBONS VOICES BIS DISAPPROVAL (Continued From First Page.) sion fiko the preswnt I should Indulge In some reminiscences This Is the privilege of the old In wnlch the young cannot share. "All the priests that were ordained for this diocese with me. or before my lime, have long sine: passed away, and all my episcopal brethren with whom 1 began to labor after my con secrat'on forty.three years ago have gone to their rewurd with one soli? tary exception, and that exception is the venerable Bishop of Kansas City. Though I value the friendship of my Junior colleagues, I feel a sense of loneliness In the absence of my old companions with whom I sat so often In council, and with whom I labored so long in the vineyard of the Lord. . . . . Uf the seventy-two prelates who attended the council in 1SS4, all but nine have paid the debt of nature." Draw* Comparison. The cardinal here drew an Interest? ing comparison between the Catholic Church in 1S61 and Its present situa? tion after half a century, during all of which time he has labored In Its ministry. "In 1S61, he said, "the archbishops and bishops of the United States num? bered 48. The priests were 2,064. The number of churches with priests at? tached was 2.042, and the Catholic pop? ulation was estimated at 1,860.000. "The number of archbishops and j bishops to-day in charge of sees amounts to 06. .fust twice as many r.s existed In 1861. Thje priests amount to 17,000, an Increase of over eight? fold. There are IS,500 churches, nearly a sevenfold increuse. We have about 16,000,000 of church members, eight times as many as existed in the United States lit 1SC1. "But the progress of religion in our country is to be estimated not only by the augmentation of the numbers of Its communicants, but also by a more ettlelent co-ordination and disc'pllno. The clergy. In 1861, were as detached squadrons compared to tho compact j und well-marshaled army 61 to-day.; Half a century ago the prelates and clergy labored under many adverse circumstances. In widely extended parts of tho country they had to min? uter to the faithful soattered often, without churches wherein to worship and without Caiholio schools. They had but seant resources to sustain them. Frequently they had to con? tend with deep-rooted prejudices "Now, thank God, we have In most places parishes well organized.; Churches have multiplied from the At? lantic to the Pacific. Parochial scViools h\ave become the rule Instead of tho exception in the large centres of pop? ulation. A generous levity are usually able and always willing to aid our missionaries. An unfriendly feeling indeed still exists In some Quarters, as the result of long standing tradi? tions and biased education, But the mists of prejudloe are gradually dis? appearing before the sunlight of truth."
