Assistant Priest at' St. Boniface
Church, Minneapolis, Died Sud
denly Last Week.
Rev. Claude Wiemann, O. S. B., as
sistant pastor of St. Boniface Church,
of this city, and son of Mr. and Mrs.
Theodore Wiemann, 107 West Tenth
street, St. Paul, died suddenly at mid
night, Friday, January 24, at the parish
house. Heart disease is said to have
caused his death. He received Ex
treme Uunction and the final absolu
tion, after making his confession. The
congested state of his lung prevented
his receiving the Holy Viaticum.
Father Wiemann was born in St.
Paul, June 5, 1878, and was educated
at St. John's University, Collegeville,
Minn. He was ordained to the priest
hood in 1903. He was appointed at
once professor of mathematics at his
Alma Mater, and then became procur
ator at St. John's College. In 1911
he became assistant at the Church of
St. Boniface in Minneapolis. During
the influenza epidemic last November
he contracted the disease while at
tending the sick. This resulted in a
weakened heart which caused his

A Delightful. Social Function at the

Supervisors of Surgical and Garment
Red Cress Workers Felicitated
Upon the Splendid Results
Achieved During the
It was a delighted assemblage of
women Red Cross workers that gath
ered at the Donaldson Tea Rooms last
Tuesday noon, the occasion marking
the close of the active period of war
welfare work in the several parishes
of the city.
The supervisors of the surgical and
garment workers to the number of
forty-five were in attendance, Mrs. L.
S.- Donaldson occupying the chair of
hostess. All of the units of the city
were represented, and there was an
informal interchange of felicitations
among the ladies, all of whom ex
pressed their gratification at the splen
did results achieved, and their satis
faction in having been able to con
tribute so substantially to the com
fort and safety of the fighting forces.
It was the general opinion that the
disciplinary effects of the campaign
were of inestimable value to those who
"saw it through," and that this excel
lent exemplification of unity of pur
pose and spirit would prove a perma
nent benefit in future cases of crisis
or calamity.
Many of the units have reorganized
their war welfare forceB for sewing,
knitting and other charitable work for
the benefit of the needy. This in
deed was the suggestion of Mrs. Don
aldson who presided at the gathering
She expressed heartfelt gratitude fori
the co-operation both in act and spirit
which she had received during the
campaign, and pointed out the po
tential power for good that lies In
the organizations already existing.
These, she suggested, might easily
and graciously be diverted from the
activities of war to the ever present
necessities of peace. Her remarks
were greeted with hearty applause,
showing that she voiced the sentiment
of all present.
Mrs. Donaldson was the recipient
of a large bouquet of roses from the
Red Cross supervisors in token of her
valuable efforts in forwarding the
work of the organization. The bou
quet was presented by Mrs. Grace
Ounn, one of the leaders of the Red
Crass activities, who in a short but
address expressed the love
and oatoom in which Mrs. Donaldson
is held among her co-workers.
Jfra. Coonan, who was one "of
the most active organizers of the

Twp»ign in a very Interesting man

the organized
parochial activities.

Rev. T. A. Cullen, pastor of the Pro
Cathedral, addressed the assemblage
in congratulation of the loyalty and
patriotism demonstrated by the Cath^
olic women of the city. The experi
ence- which they had passed through,
he declared, would be of lasting bene
fit to themselves- and to the commu
nity, and if in future any similar oc
casion should arise for sacrifice and
labor it would find them prepared for
the emergency.
During the luncheon and afterwards
that followed, Mrs. Frances Vincent
Coveney sang a number of songs in
her usual capable manner, that were
thoroughly appreciated, Miss Florence

Special Ceremony Planned.
A special ceremony will mark the
beginning of the administration of
Bishop Dowling in the diocese of St.
Paul. It probably will be some weeks
before Bishop Dowling comes to St.
Paul, according to Rev. J. C. Byrne,
vicar general of the dioecese and act
ing head.
Catholic churchmen today said it is
believed Bishop Dowling will be in
vested into his office faster Sunday—
April 27.
Bishop Dowling will assume the of
fice of archbishop of St. Paul when he
receives from Rome his official ap
pointment on parchment and can ex
ercise none of the functions of the
office until he receives the paHium, it
was said.
At the special service which will
be in the Cathedral of St. Paul, a
bishop will invest Bishop Dowling
with the pyiHnm after a mass. He
will then become the archbishop of
St Paul.
Archbishop-Elect Prepares for New
Bishop Ahstin Dowling, named by
Pope Benedict to take over the met
ropolian diocese of St Paul, which
was administered for so long a time
by the late Archbishop Ireland, is
getting his work in shape preparatory
to taking up his residence here, ac-
cording to word from Des Moines.
Bishop Dowling's activities in Des
Moines have covered such a wide field
that he will, be kept busy during the
short time he will remain there.
"I have not' made a single plan for
my new work in St: Paul," Bishop
Dowling said. "I don't even know
what the situation is there. All I
can say is that 1 will take up the
work as I find it. The ability of
Archbishop Ireland was so well known
that it needs 110 comment nor praise.
It speaks for itself. All we can ex
pect' is to keep pushing forward and
endeavor to carry out some of that
noble prelate's ideas."
Bishop Dowling is a modest man.
"I will be glad to announce at any
time whatever plans may be made,"
the bishop said, in discussing his new
Bishop Dowling is a man of strong
personality. His friends in Des
Moines are not confined to his own
faith. His great work in civic activi
ties has won him the admiration of
thousands of Des Moines people.
As a scholar he is best known. His
work in establishing schools has at
tracted attention far and near. He
has planned more big things for his
church in Des Moines than has been
carried on anywhere else in the state.
He was consecrated as Bishop of Des
Moines, April 25, 1912.

they gave her some patched clothes as
coming from America, and she knew
that nobody in America would send
such stuff as that. It is hard to have
to choose between being just ami be
ing good American. I won't tell you
what attitude I took, but I'm afraid
my dear old lady still thinks she has
an argument to prove that the Boches
are robbers.
"At any rate, the older griefs of
these people are for the soldiers who
have come through an intense war
experience—echoes of 'old, unhappy,
far-off things, and battles of long ago.'
They judge the German soldier by
their own experience and by soldier
standards they don't fear him they
don't hate him they don't despise
him either. They respect him when
he puts up a good fight or makes a
clean getaway, and -that lias beeu
most of the time. When they meet
him now the impulse is not to hit
him, but to give him a 'tailor-made'
cigarette and swap experiences.
"If I can judge by the tone of the
press the civilian mind has had a
quite different set of experiences. You
are much more bitter over there. You
talk of the 'Huns,' and it is the
rarest thing to hear a soldier in a
combat division talk of 'Huns'—it is
always the 'Boche' or 'Heinie' or sim
ly 'the Germans.' Perhaps it is what
you have been fed upon perhaps it
4s something that, is fundamentally
decent showing itself in a crooked
way when some fellow who isn't in
damning the Kaiser or bursting the
windows of a delicatessen store or
teaching his kid to insult some little
towhead in school. In France ani
mosity was characteristic only of re
cruits or warriors of the rear areas
who never heard or fired a shot,
"It was a fine spirit on the part of
our troops, much better than hatred
would have been. I cannot see that
deep bitterness could have made them
bolder. It only would have made
them less efficient. And the spirit
is admirable in itself. I saw a Ger
man airman do a particularly daring
bit of wOrl$ and bring down one of
our observation balloons in sight of
20,000 soldiers, and I do not think
there was a soldier in the bunch that
didn't say: 'I hope to God the beggar
gets away.'
"You can easily understand that
now that our fellows have licked
them in fair fight on both sides, they
are kindly disposed towards them.
And you can understand, too, the rea
son for the prophecy I have often
heard many of our officers make, that
the return of the front-line troops
will do much to soften the bitterness
of American opinion with regard to
German conduct of the war, though
it will not change American views on
the war itself or the need of our get
ting into it."
Father Duffy, who is one of the
great individual heroes of the war,
writes from the heart of the Ameri
can Army, for he is marching with
the Rainbow Diyisldh through Ger
many. His letter will serve to en
lighten the American people who have
been systematically deceived by that
element which has fostered the spirit
of hatred and has sought to Incite
unforgiving bitterness and hostility
against the German people. He Is
big enough and courageous enough
to tell the American people that they
have been misled and that the spirit
of hatred which is so pronounced at
home is unknown at the front
