Many Pleasant Social Eyenta During tbo
Pant Week.
A. nc'L'nlon Picnic Various Happen
ings In Social Circle * of n
Pleasant Nature General
Society In Omaha.
It is not strange that the man ; pursc-
llmltcd people of our land gaze with en
vious eyes upon the happy throngs de
parting for the summer resorts. The
happy faces of the old and young
who hasten away to joyous breezes
nnd quiet nooks are surely to bo envied
by their more unfortunate fellow-being's ,
who are compelled to remain under the
Bamo old monotonous suns which pour
their rays down with malice toward all
and charity fur none. This summer
promises to bo a warm ono and it is well
that the climate of Omaha is a most
agreeable ono in which to spend the
heated term ,
During the past week many of our
locicty people have departed for their re
treat and the present week will witness
the departure of many more.
In the circles of homo society the past
week has been a very pleasant one , some
very agreeable events having taken
The Pntcrson-PnrsoriB .Nuptials.
If the much beloved canon had not
been too modest the event of the WCOK
might have been the marriage of Hcv.
James Paterson to Mrs. Julia A. Par-
Bens , of tills city. The ceremony took
place at St. Luke's church. Plattsmouth ,
nnd was performed by Hev. 11. B , Bur
gess of that place. The affair was a quiet
ono , in fact .so quiet that ninny of the
most intimate friends of the divine were
totally ignorant of the happy union.
Everyone knows Dr. Patcr&on as the pas
tor of St. Marguerite's church , Pupillion ,
nnd editor of the Guardian , the Episcopal
paper of this city. His bride is a lady ,
for many years a resident of Omaha , and
loved and esteemed for her manyeslima
bio traits of character. The quietness of
the nuptials will bo forgiven by the
many friends of the happy couple in
their eagerness to wish them much hap
piness and prosperity. That the union
of two Christian workers who have
labored long and earnestly in the
vineyard may bo ono of increased
ben elk to the cause as well as to thorn *
Reives , will bo the earnest wish of all
A Itnmiion IMcnlo.
Thursday evening last a most enjoya
ble event occurred at Hanscom park , the
occasion being a reunion picnic by
Omaha familes whoso former homo had
been Marshalltown , la. The whole af
fair was an impromptu ono , but was as
great a success as though weeks had been
spent in preparation. The invitations
with a few unavoidable exceptions were
most cheerfully responded to. The ele
gant supper was just such a one as it
person acquainted with Marshalltown
ladies would expect , In variety , prepa
ration and arrangement there was noth
ing left to add , and it may bo said that
the good-humored Hawkoyos not only
brought with them their proverbial so
cial qualities , but they also brought their
Iowa appetites , and the way those
tempting viands disappeared was
enough to make a dyspeptic die of envy.
Rev. A. R. Day , whilst adding largely to
the entertainment of his former neigh
bors , kept decidedly close to the chicken
pie. Mr. A. W. Gregory , while crossing
the park with his welt-filled basket , was
"hold up" by u jolly crowd of
picnio people , but camu into
camp , basket and all , in oed
ehapo. The supper was bounteous and a
complete success. The number present
was over fifty , the following being a complete -
pleto list ; Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Lyon , Mr.
and Mrs. Captain A. H. Neidig , Mr. and
Mrs. H. M. Hess. Mr. and Mrs. A. A.
McFaddcn , Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Day , Mr.

Noyd. Mr. and Mrs. F. V. Atwatcr. Mr.

U. F. Hoyco. L. W. Gifford , Willie Neidig ,
Gcorgo S. Miller , E. A. St. John , S. F. bt.

Mary Neidig , Lulu Calhoun , Fannie Hess ,
Flora Day , Marie C. Gregory , Masters
Jimmii ! , Tommies , Frank and Karl Foley ,

plete success. Many friendships were re
newcd nnd the hope often expressed that
Buch occasions might be more frequent
in the future. While writing words of
commendation for each one present , to
the thoughtfulness and energy of Mrs
K. L. Lyon , Mrs. H. M. Hess and Mrs. C.

Nr.w YOKK , July 10. [ Correspondence ot
the BIK. : J Almost on the same day that Dr.
McGlynn was ex-communicated by order of
the Supreme Pontill Leo XIII. there was
runnliii : through the press In Now York , in
London. In 1'arls , In Cologne , In Turin , in
Barcelona ami at the Jlacun the first author
ized "Life" ot the pope , which was written
larfcely from a manuscript m the Vatican
which he lent to the author , Dr. ISernard
O'Keilly , an American priest. It Is , there-
tore , largely autobiographic , and having re
ceived the pope's special bKisslliij ami sanc
tion it may be taken as the narrative of his
career by which he himself des'.ies ' posterity
to judge him. Tha author has also the es-
poclal congratulations of Archbishop Gibbons
bens and Archbishop Corrigan. It will be
recalled that
is not the attitude ot a Protestant to the pope
but of a believer In the Jtoinan church , its
doctrines and Its system of government , still
of a rebel against what he regards as the par
ticular abuse of the papal and hlorarchcal
powers. In other words , Dr. McClynn
maintains that he has not sinned against the
ical Human church not against the Catholic
religion but only against this partlculnr
pope and his hierarchy. The very osscnco of
the McOlynn case , therefore , lies iu the es
pecial experience , career , doctrines ami pe
culiarities of Leo XIII. And the narrative
of the pope's life which he himself has au
thorized and to a great degree himself writ
ten , leaves no room for wonder that the
course pursued by Dr. McUlynn has been
attended with the consequences that the
whole political and rclkious world is now
discussing. The greater part of Joachim
1'ccci's life ( for that Is the popo's name ) , has
been u IK' lit lor the
and tor the maintenance of all doc
trine upon \vhlcli its temporal us well at Its
spiritual power must rest. The great work
ot the earlier part of Joachim 1'eccl'a lito

scholarly and devout man from his youth up ,
at a comparatively early pei led ( ho Is now
seventy-seven yeais of age ) ho displayed
along with the humility of the tiuo priest and
theself-saciiiicoof a devout man , the pug

diplomatic qualities of the very rarest order.

most true and must bo evident to every In-
tellUent mind , that there is n very close con

the spiritual primacy. " "This church Is the

Dr.O'Kellly. Socialism he uses In the widest
sense a sense wide enough to include tno

and tills Is a passage from that now tamous
document : "They ( the socialists ) , deny the
right to hold property sanctioned by the laws

These monstrous opinions they proclaim In
