Commission Searching Life Story of t lie Former delphiu Prelate. Out the riui.i- j Baltimore, Jan. 15. For the first time 'i in American history proceedings have j been Instituted looking to the beatiilca 1 tion and canonization of an American , Catholic prelate. A commission of Catholic dignitaries is now in session at the home of the Redemptorists here , talcing evidence of the life and char acter of the late Bishop John N. New man. of Philadelphia, which is to be submitted to Pope Leo at Rome. ! The commission js composed as fol Tlows: Judges Rev. Charles Driscoll, ' provincial of the Augustinians, and i Rev. John Scully, S. J., rector of SU , Joseph's, Philadelphia. Promoter of the ' Faith Rev. James G. Monahan, of the Philadelphia Cathedral. Notary Rev. . William A. Fletcher, of the Baltimore I Cathedral. Messenger Rev. X. Firle, 1 C. SS. R., of St. James's church. Balti , more. Postulator Rev. Joseph Wis , sel, C. SS. R., of the Missionary House, Saratoga, XT. Y. j Bisliop Newman was a Bohemian by birth, who came to America in 1S3S and was ordained priest by Bishop Dubois, of New York, in 1S3G. He received the habit of Redeemers in 1S40, and made the profession as a Redemptorist in 1S42, . being the first one of that order in ; America. He was a superior at Pitts burg, then a vice-nrovinoinJ nftorrari in 1S51, rector at St. Alphonsus'.s church here in Baltimore. In 1S52 he was ap pointed Bishop of Philadelphia, and died in Philadelphia in 1SG0. It is in the parlors of the Redemp torists, adjoining St. Alphonsus's church, on Saratoga street, that the commission is now- holding its session. These sittings are conducted with the greatest secrecy. No one is admitted to the presence of the two judges ex cept the notary, the promoter, and one witness at a time. All persons are sworn to the most absolute and per petual secrecy, and a violation of the oath calls forth the most drastic pen? alties of the Catholic Church. The ob ject is to reproduce completely the life of the prelate whose career is being investigated, nnd when the commission has finished its investigations here it will continue its work in Philadelphia and wherever Bishop Newman labored The sessions begin at 9 in the morning and continue all day, the questioning being most searching. It was at the instance of the. present Archbishop of Philadelphia that the present proceedings were instituted. Al his suggestion the title of venerable was allowed JJislinn 'owmnn i... i. j Pope. Since tha.t time the Roman pon- lijl minimi recommenued the institu tion of this additional investigation to determine whether a more exalted dis tinction should be conferred upon him. When this commission lias completed its work it will deposit the original .minutes of its investigations in the ar chives of the arolidnrfK -r ti,iiii phia and send an authenticated copy to the Pope, by whom, It will be submitted to a high ecclesiastical body of council lors. If the Pope decides upon the worthiness of the bishop, he will accord the privilege of beatification. These privileges are the prefixing of "Bless ed" to his name, also the allowance of mass and offices to be said in his honor by the congregation of the Most Hob Redeemer and throughout the diocese of Philadelphia. The notice to the world of the beatification will be made by proclamation in St. Peter's Cathe dral in Rome. . Then will follow special sermons in all the churches throughout the Phila delphia diocese embodying the pontific al decree. After that has been achieved the next possible glorification would he the. bestowal of the honors of canon ization, which, however, cannot be con sidered until the bishop has been dead at least fifty years. This, therefore, coulU not happen until 1910. Me Told His Name. (From Tld-Bits.) He was dressed like a fanner, and he looked intjuiiingly at the clerk behind the counter of our chief postoffice, and pointed pantomimically to a bundle of letters the latter Ws sorting. "What name'." asked the clerk. "Louder," cried the agriculturist Supposing his customer to be deaf, the clerk repeated his query in a tone calculated to wake the dead. Bat the man only smiled an unmeaning smile, and said: "Louder." The clerk took a long breath, and the yell that followed startled even the phlegmatic luishnmlman. "Xo, offense, sir, I hope? Yes, that's mv I name. Louder,' sir.-" -; - j "Oh, aid" said thclrk, "I never thought I of that. l'es. here's a letter."

The original guest list was limited to 1 ,20O, but owing to pressure, the invitations have been Increased to 2,000, and still requests for cards tire being received at the rate of fifty a day. Mr. Fortcr has decided that from now on he will not issue another invitation no matter who wants It. It is not possible for the Executive Mansion to accommodate so large a crowd as wish to attend to attend the President's first reception, and for that reason Mr. Porter is sending out a large number of letters ot refusals each day to members oCjCongress and otherslwh'o'are requesting cards, and he does not intend to make an exception' to the rule. According to the instructions ot the President, no cards or admission will he required, but the ushers will be armed- Mr. William Dunn, S0-1 Twenty-second street northwest, Wasulngton, D.

One or the most artistically attractive homes in Washington is that of Commander and Mrs. Dickens, who possess, iu addition to many other souvenirs of travel, at home and abroad, the finest private collection of American historical china in the world. Their ceramic art gallery is represented by hundreds of plates and platters that almost cover the dark blue walls of the dining-room, 'and these, together with a priceless array or. tea pots, cups, pitch ers, and cream Jugs, set In glass cabinets around-the -room-represent-with-out few exceptions, samples rrom every set or Presidential china that has been used in the Whlta House from Washington's day to the present period. The predominant color of the memorial china which studs the walls is of old Stutfordshfre ware", the rims flowered In blue and the centers' pictured with some Incideiitt custom, or building associated with the history of America' in the past. Interspersed with the Staffordshire blue are willow ware effects in sober brown Willi an occasional platter whose scarlet or gilt tracery gives a glow of artistic coloring to the entire room. Many or the samples on the cabinet shelves bear the potter s stamp of extinct kilns, and apart from their value as relics are beautiful In shape and tinting as specimens of ceramic skill. Commander and Mrs. Dickens possess many Interesting reminders of cruising in South American waters, the experiences or which Mrs. Dickens has so cleverly embodied in her book, "Along Shore with a Man-of-Wur;" but their unique ex hibition of historical china which gives glimpses such as liooks cannot give of the dead and gone heads ot our nation and the times In which they lived, is their chief treasure, and the collecting or which they modestly set down as their fad.
