REFUSES TO DISCUSS MATTER 01 TO OE INTERVIEWED Ireland Now Nearing His Seventieth Birthday, But He Is Hale and Com pletes an Immense Amount of Work Dally—Reports Again of His Being Named Cardinal. Associated FKH to Tke Evenlig Times. St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 19.—Placed in a most painful position, the innocent victim of his over-zealous friend Archbishop Ireland has consistently declined to be interviewed on the sub ject of the Roosevelt-Storer controv ersy. Those closely acquainted with the great prelate know how useless It would be to attempt to get an opin ion from him on such a subject. Or dinarily he is exceptionally free, frank and informal in his talks for publica tion. But the controversy that has been so much discussed during the last week touches upon a subject in regard to which the Archbishop al ways refuses to speak. In the past dozen years or so reporters have gone to him a hundred times with a story that he was about to be named a car dinal. To all these Inquiries he mere ly said he bad heard nothing from the Vatican, but refused to discuss probabilities or possibilities. Archbishop Ireland is nearing his seventieth birthday, but both mentally and physically he appears to be in the prime of life. His life at his home in this city, is as simple and unostenta tious as it is possible to make it.'He arises every morning at an early hour and at half past seven he breakfasts with the members of fails household. The breakfast hour over he retires to his study, runs over the morning pa» pers, summons his secretary and be gins the labors of the day. Right here becomes evident his startling grasp of every subject from church to chari ty, from parochial school to seminary. His correspondence indicates that he gves the plaint of the poorest woman of St. Paul as painstaking attention as the appeal of the Bishop of North Dakota on a matter of church policy. His hours from 9 o'clock to noon are spent 1 nhis study. His very volum inous correspondence out of the way, he writes or dictates a sermon or reads. At noon devotions are re sumed, after which dinner is served, and at 2 o'clock the Archbishop ap pears promptly at his office at the ca thedral, where he remains at work un til late In the afternoon. The even ing meal Is served shortly after 6, and the hours there after till 9 are given over to study and work of other char acter. His capacity for work is won derful and his enthusiasm unflagging. Archbishop Ireland first came into national prominence through his work in the Interest of temperance. After several years of Incessant work in his church in Minnesota and the organiza tion of many local abstinence socie ties he branches out in his work and delivered lectures In the principal cit ies of America, England and Ireland. In church matters Archbishop Ire land is a liberal. A little over fifteen j| ft he conceived the plan of public and parochial schools _?rged, both Catholic and Protestant teachers being employed, and the school moneys divided. This was what was known in Minnesota as the "Faribault plan" and was put in operation under the direction of the archbishop. It was tried at both Far ibault and Stillwater. At Stillwater a large parochial school was given to the city, but the sisters were continued in charge of it as teachers. A similar arrangement was made at Faribault. The plan worked really well for a time, but there was soon friction. Protestants objected to teachers in structing children in the garb of any church. Next the trouble came over the Bible, the Catholics wanting to use it in part as a textbook, and the Pro testants asking that it be read only (Continued on Page 4.)

Merle, originally for presentation by the students ot a religious college in California, was given an unusually elaborate production at the Majestic theater. The scenery and costumes were splendid, every art of the stage manager was employed to make the presentation a worthy one and the acting was both clever and earnest but notwithstanding it cannot be said that a success was scored. In the "Sign of the Cross" and "The Shepherd King" both of which prospered, the latter now playing a New York en gagement, the theater-going public found both dramatic action and spec tacular splendor. In "The Light Eternal" there is plenty of the spec tacular, but the dramatic episodes'are not worked out skillfully and the dia logue Is rather too lengthy. However a large portion of the patronage oi the theatre comes from persons relig iously Inclined and It may be that the play will have a more or less extend ed run.
