OTTCMWA COUKIEB DIOCESAN MUSIC lis-' GREGORIAN CHANT TO BE GRAD UALLY INTRODUCED IN THE CATHOLIC CHLTRCHE8 Committee for Diocese of Davenport Makes Report—Change Is Not to Be Made Immediately—Rev. J. W. Sueppel on Committee—The Report. The coniinission appointed by R.t. Rev. Henry Cofegrove to make recom mendations for the Catholic diocese of Davenport towards carrying out the encyclical of his holiness, Pope Pius X., In regard to church music, has completed its report. Rev. Joseph W. Sueppel, formerly assistant pastor of St. Marys church in thi city, is a mem ber of the commission. The report fol lows: The Report. As the conditions in many parishes in this country are such that the adop tion of the Gregorian chant in the liturgical services of the Catholic churches, as the pope orders, is im possible, the comfnittee only recom mends that the choirs of the churches in the future, as soon as the new plan can be adopted, will be composed of men. and boys of the parish, a course in church music to be taught in the parochial schools, colleges and acad emies. According to the "Motu Proprlo" of Pope Pius X. on this subject, which is directed to the Catholics of all the world, no nation being exempt, the Gregorian or plain chant shall be es tablished in the church. Action to wards the adoption of this strict rule cannot be taken immediately, for the reason that conditions are such that it would be impossible. In Latin speaking countries, and in those wjiere the Gregorian chant has been, in use for years, it is different from the American conditions, inas much as this form of music is not known or taught in this country. That this is -true, is illustrated by the-,fact that even since the encyclical of the Pope has been issued, some parishes and dioceses in this country have been compelled to send men to Europe to learn the chant and receive instruction in the music to be used, in order- that they might return and instruct the men who will hereafter be the compo nents of the choirs. Accordingly the commission ap pointed by the bishop of the Daven port diocese recommends the teach ing of the required form of music in the parochial schools, colleges and academies, and also encourages con gregational singing. The Pope, according to the "Motu Proprlo issued hy him on November 22, 1903, commands that the Greporian chant be used in the liturgical func tions, but he does not forbid the rendi tion of the Cecilian or Palestrinian music. This later style of music should breathe, however, the spirit of religion. The commission, which realizes the fact that it would be impossible to es tablish the Gregorian chant in the Catholic churches at the present time, since it does not forbid the Palestrin ian or Cecilian music or even the mod ern sacred music which is not oper atic, permits the singing of the "Glo ria," the "Credo," the "Kyrie" and the "Angus Dei" by the mixed choir, but excludes the "Introit," the "Grad ual," the "Offertory" and the "Com munion." As the letter of the Pope will be carried out in due time, how ever, .the plain chant hy male voices will be put into use as soon as condi tions will permit. A pamphlet containing the complete encyclical of Pope Pius X., the decree of the congregation of sacred rites, the letter of the apostolical delegate, Mon signore Falcino, and the other decrees will be published in a few weeks. The following is the report of the committee for the Davenport diocese: The Commission's Report, In accordance with the wish of the sovereign pontiff, in the eighth para graph of the "Motu Proprlo," our Rt. Rev. Bishop Henry Cosgrove, D. D., and the Coadjutor Bishop James Davis, D. D., have named Rev. A. J. Schulte, Rev. J. T. A. Flannagan and Rev. J. W. Sueppel, a commission to examine into our local conditions, with a view to the enforcement of the prescriptions of the holy father on church music. The commission begs to report: I. That the "Motu Proprlo" of his holi ness Pius X., issued November 22, 1903, the subsequent decree of the Congregatian of Safcred Rites issued January 8, 1904, and numerous other decisions and regulations of the same congregation, interpretive of the "Mo tu Proprio," have the full force of law, and are binding in conscience. The recent letter of his excellency, the apostolic delegate, to Rev. Dr. Heuer, but emphasizes the necessity of introducing these reforms in church music, quamprimum. II. That our obligation to fulfill the re quirements of the "Motu Proprio" is forcibly expressed by the following words of his excellency, the apostolic delegate: "The instruction of our holy father is clear and evident. It is di rected to the whole Catholic world. No nation is exempt. It has a judicial and authoritative, binding character every where, upon all Catholics. 'We will,' says the holy father, 'with the fullness of our apostolic authority, that the force of law be given (to the said Mo tu Proprio) and we do by our present handwriting impose its scrupulous ob servance upon all.'" III. That, since it is a matter of con science and a question of our obedi ence and loyally to the Holy See, to observe the enactments as laid down in the "Motu Proprio." (Here are quoted the Motu Proprlo, the decree of the Congregation of Sacred Rites, the Apostolic Delegate's letter and the scheme of Liturgical Chant from the Ecclesiastical Review.) IV. That, from the above, we would ^A»n1t»lA that tha UaIt F&ihar com* .P mm mands that the Gregorian chant be used during liturgical funotions though he does not strictly forbid^ the rendition of Palestrinian or the mod ern style of music. But the latter style of music, e., the modern, should be dignified and breathe the spirit of religion. v. That as our choirs of the future will be made up of the boys of the parish, therefore, we strongly recom mend that a course of church music be made a part of the future curricu lum of the parochial schools, acade mies and colleges of the diocese, that the pupils may be trained in the Gre gorian chants. That "the sound of the organ must participate in all the qualities proper to sacred music," hence it is forbidden to play church pieces of profane character and dance music, secular airs and the like. That. since -Latin is the language of the churoh, it alone should be used in solemn liturgical functions. Hymns in the vernacular may be sung at non-liturgical func tions. Congregational singing shall be en couraged by the pastors of the churches. Hence, from the above it follows that, as obedient, children of the church, it becomes our sacred duty to introduce (If not already Intro duced) and further the reforms in church jnusic, as recommended by our sovereign pontiff. He, the watchman on the citadel of Peter .knows and understands better the needs, and can point out to us what will enhance the solemnity, and dignity of the ceremo nies of the true and propej) rendition of ecclesiastical song and music.

AN OLD MINER. David H. Williams, of Lucas, Is Min ing Coal in His 8eventy-Fifth Year. The following article from a Lucas paper tells of David H. Williams, an aged Welch miner, who is well known to citizens of this city and many who are employed in the mines in this vi cinity: "David H. Williams, of this town, is now in his seventy-fifth year. At the age of 7 years he began working in the coal mines in Dlnas, South Wales, the place of his nativity. For twenty years or more he continued work at that place, then went to Cym mer, South Wales, and 'pursued his vocation for fifteen years more. His next location was at Llwyn Celyn, where he mined coal until his depart ure for America. He landed here in September, 1868, and settled in Braid Mystic Shriners, Excursion to Los Angeles fiirTii t:iiiWii- Your Teeth Extracted 4 ,V •'HI"By Our "No Hurt" METHODS ''•v «, ar Parlors wood, 111., where he again went to work in the mines, remaining there nearly ten years. In the fall of 1877 he moved to Old Cleveland, taking a.? room in old No. 1 and has been in tha''. employ of the Whitebreast company: ever since. Supt. D. O. Campbell says Mr. Williams is the oldest miner in point of service that the Whitebreast. company has in this state. "The above figures show that Mr. Williams has worked in the "coal v. mines for slxty-ieight years, and' thevs value of the "dusty diamonds" he has sent to the, top in that time would .make Rockefeller's millions take a\ back seat. "Mr. Williams was married to Jana Roberts, in South Wales, October 8, 18 56, the ceremony being performed according to the rites of the Church of England. As the years' rolled by thirteen children, ten boys and three- 1 girls, have beeti born to them. Of these, four sons and two daughtera have crossed the dark river tha re-f^ mainder now hatfe families of their r own. 'Though as might be expected from one of his«years, Mr. Williams cannot do nearly the amount of work he was capable of in early manhoood, yet his check is a fair average of those given out at the office every pay day," REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS.
