Capt. C. P. Brown, Secretary and
Treasurer of Denver Northern Rail
way Co., to Leave for Denver Soon
—Articles of Incorporation.
As soon as the articles of incorpora*
j%vi tlon of the Denver Northern Railway
company are filed, Captain Chaa. P.
Brown of this city, who is secretary
and treasurer of the company, will
leave for Denver to remain there un
til the building of the road is complet
ed and may decide to make his home
in that city. The articles of incorpora
tion were received by Captain Brown
®?4 yesterday executed and forwarded to
his brother, W. C. Brown of Chicago,
president of the company.
|g|p The company will be capitalized at
%p4 59,000,000 and is for the purpose of
building an electric line from Denver
as^.to Cheyenne via Boulder, Longmont,
i#j Ft. Collins and Greely, a distance of
125 miles. The cost of the road bed,
terminals and equipment is estimated,
at $40,000 per mile. The road is to
be built by W. C. Brown for eastern
capitalists. A Denver paper has the
following regarding the proposed line:
"The Denver Terminal Railway com
pany, which asks for a franchise into
the heart of Denver by way of the'
north side and Eighteenth and Nine
p| teenth streets, it is stated, hps no con
nection with the Municipal Traction
company, the corporate name for the
sp& Boettcher-Bailey-Cooper street car
"Morris J. Jones of Boulder and
Henry W. Hartman of Pittsburg are
the representatives of the syndicate
back of the project in Denver.
"Among the men connected with the
enterprise are W. C. Brown, vice pres
ident of the New York Central railroad
and formerly general manager of the
Burlington Captain Charles Brown, a
prominent Iowa capitalist, and Rotert
Law of- Denver.
"The Denver Terminal railway and
the Northern railway are one prac
tically. The latter corporation was
formed to build the electric line in
northern Colorado. Its entrance to
Denver will be by way Of the Denver
Terminal, with a- depot--near Eigh

is to build a system between Denver

GREGORIAN CHANT TO BE GRAD
UALLY INTRODUCED IN THE
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
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
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
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
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:
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
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.'"
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

That as our choirs of the future
will be made up of the boys of the

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

of ecclesiastical song and music.

ent basis has met with a hearty re
sponse on the part of the business and
professional men of Ottumwa and will
be carried out as contemplated. The
sum of $12,000 has been subscribed

Country club, supplemented by the
hearty co-operation of the business
and professional men of this city. It
means that Ottumwa is to take its
place with other progressive cities in

be a delight and a pleasure, and a
source of healthful recreation for every
member of the club, their families and
Architect George M. Kerns is now
preparing the plans for the enlarge
ment of the club house, which will ini
elude the addition of a large dancing
hall or reception room to the present
building, the construction of wide ver
andas, the addition of a kitchen aqd
pantry, the putting in of waterworks,
shower baths and' toilet facilities and
other additions that will make of the
club house a beautiful and commodi
ous structure for country club pur
poses. The officers and directors of
the Ottumwa Country club who have
pushed this matter to a successful
conclusion are Hon. S. H. Harper, J.
W. Garner, Dr. S. L. Houck, Will Fos
ter, W. B. Bonnifield, Jr., A. W. Lee, J.
B. Sax, Dr. M. Bannister, F. B. Clark

in the coal mines in Dlnas, South

twenty years or more he continued
work at that place, then went to Cym

vocation for fifteen years more. His
next location was at Llwyn Celyn,
where he mined coal until his depart

September, 1868, and settled in Braid
wood, 111., where he again went to
work in the mines, remaining there
nearly ten years. In the fall of 1877

ever since. Supt. D. O. Campbell says
