Every Creed Was Represented
in Great Throng That
Kissed Seal Ring
More than 3000 persons of every creed
and of no creed knelt yesterday before
James Cardinal Gibbons the ranking
Roman Catholic prelate of the western
hemisphere and the only American
member of the college of cardinals and
pressed their lips to the great seal ring
the Insignia of his priestly office on the
occasion ot nis lormal public reception
at the residence of Right Rev Lau
rence Scanlan bishop of Salt Lake I
The affair marks an epoch in the his
tory of the west as well as an epoch
in the history of the Roman Catholic
history of the world For the first time
a Roman Catholic cardinal has paid an
official visit to the west For many
of those in fact for nearly all it was
the first time they had ever seen a
Roman Catholic cardinal To be pre
sented officially to a member of the col
lege of cardinals was the privilege of a
lifetime and thousands eagerly em
braced the opportunity
From 4 oclock until 6 yesterday aft
ernoon Cardinal Gibbons received an
apparently endless stream of people
Some of these were communicants of
the Roman Catholic church in the Unit
ed States Others perhaps came out of
curiosity But more attended the re
ception because It gave them the priv
ilege of meeting a man whose religious
influence is extended over one of the
largest churches of the world a man
whose vote helps to select the prelate
A ho occupies the throne of St Peter In
Home the pope the absolute head of
all the Catholics In the world and who
exercises a power greater than any
crowned king has ever attempted to
Many Arrive Early
Before the hour set for the formal reception
ception carriages and automobiles had
brought to Bishop Seanlans residence
hundreds of people waiting to be pre
sented to the cardinal Shortly after 4
oclock these people were ushered into
the reception room b > a dozen pretty
little girls
The tmstace djgnltyof the plainness
furnishings and decorations that is I al
ways to be found In the residence of a
Roman Catholic prelate was pleasantly
relieved by festoons of American nags
and great clusters of beautiful flowers
Back of the cardinals throne the gre n
and gold with the harp of Erin was
entwined with the flags of America On
a background of flaming scarlet the coat
of arms f the cardinal was displayed
at his throne
As the people entered the reception
room they were met by Joseph Geoghe
gan and by him presented to Right Rev
Laurence Scanlan bishop of Salt Lake
Then they were presented to his emi
nence James Cardinal Gibbons arch
bishop of Baltimore Atter meeting the
cardinal the guests were presented In
turn to Right Rev Dennis J OConnell
coadjutor archbishop of San Francisco
Right Rev Alphonsus J Glorieux bish

of the occasion With her In the re
celvine line were Mrs O J Salisbury

Has Wonderful Memory
One of the pretty incidents of the re
ception was the reception of Mrs P L
Hannifan of Pocatello one of the so
prano soloists of St Marys dedication
choir As the soloist knelt before the
cardinal the prelate smiled and said
My dear I have met you before
Yes Your Eminence replied the
The cardinal would not let her tell
him where they had met before He
waited until he recalei from the depths
of his wonderful memory the occasion
of their previous meeting It wis
twelve years previous when Mrs Han

resident of Boston On the occasion of

Twelve Hundred Little Ones
March and Sing Before
Thousands of Spectators
Amid enthusiasm more demonstrative
than that exhibited when the ell
veterans marched down Main street 011
Wednesday morning the little children
of the living flag formed marched and
sang with all Salt Lake looking on last
night It was the completion of that
part of the flag program which the ter
rific heat and consequent prostrations
In the ranks of the children interfered
with on parade day It was the crown
ing glory of encampment week and a
fitting one
The little tots 1200 strong responded
loyally to the second call of their lead
er and with Main street a solid bank of
humanity on either side for half a mile
they marched and countermarched
singing the patriotic songs of long ago
When the Pioneer monument the start
ing place had been reached on the re
turn they stopped and under the mag
netic direction of Professor William A
Wetzell went through the pretty move
ments which made the Jiving flag a
thing of beauty the day the veterans
marched beneath its living folds with
cheers and tears of patriotism
The cool evening breezes pervaded
where the blistering heat was Wednes
day and the children unhampered by
the sun seemed to enjoy their part
Each child a veritable fairy child in
graceful draperies of the colors red
white and blue carried a tiny flag and
those of the blue field held white stars
above their heads And they marched
In perfect formation their voices ming
ling with the martial strains of bands
that marched with them
Thousands Fill Street
Twenty thousand persons imbued
with all the patriotism engendered by
a week of reveling in the glories of that
past packed the line of march and
cheered with mere spirit than any event
of the encampment has yet called forth
The veterans those who had not de
parted were to be seen here and there
in the crowded ranks appreciating to
the full extent this second living em
bodiment of Old Glory It marked the
close of the most glorious period in
Salt Lakes history and the crowds gave
due recognition of the fact
The second appearance of the living
flag came as a result of hundreds of
requests from those who were unable t
witness the spectacle of the children
dressed in national colors on the flag
stand Wednesday Many thousands
were unable to get a full view of Main
street on the morning of the parade
and waited in tense expectancy the pro
posed march of the flag from the stand
at Seventh South and Main streets to
the monument corner When the an
nouncement was made that owing to
the intense heat and numerous prostra
tions among the children the latter
half of the program had been dispensed
with disappointment was everywhere
evidenced Pressure was at once brought
to bear on Professor Wetsell to conclude
his program The latter upon confer
ring with the executive committee
promised to repeat the living flag and
last nights inspiring spectacle was the
Children Respond
The children with the exception of a
few hundred responded promptly to
the call to meet at the assembly hall
at 630 oclock yesterday afternoon
where they were again given their
capes and caps and after a short re
hearsal marched to Main and South
Temple streets where the flag was
formed Streetcar traffic was shut off
for an hour while the flag formed and
awaited the starting signal
Headed by Helds band and the lad
ies of the G A R band the flag
marched to Fourth South street and
countermarched to South Temple street
Professor Wetxell mounted on the seat
of a carriage directed his little charge
as they marched and when the monu
ment was reached he put them through
the special movements which produced <
the wonderful effects of a real flag rip
pling in the breese This was admirably
effected by a singular backward and
forward movement of the various
stripes in unison The people packed
several rows deep made a great am
phitheatre of Main street during theM
