' Arriving in front of the cathedral the band discoursed "Wearing of the Green. " while the procession was filing into the church. Unfortunately , the Iowa delega tion , composed of orders from Vail.

This delegation was ushered into the ca thedral by oflicors of the local order and was i Just on tlmo for the opening services at 10:30 : a. m. > The church was unnblo to accommodate nil . the Hibernians with regalia , and as a consequence quence a number bf the visiting delegates were compelled to remain without during the ceremonies. Solemn high mass , was chanted by Rov. P. - F. McCarthy , Father Carroll acting as deacon and Father Kelley as sub-deacon. The sermon was delivered by Father Mc Carthy , who , without text entered upon nn earnest and eloquent panegyric of the patron Bainl. Ho spoke as follows : "Tho object of Ihls morning's extraordi nary display Is to thank Almighty God for . the light of divine faith nnd to honor the i great saint whom God made use of to bring < J to our ancestors the gospel of Jesus Christ. "It is now more than 1,400 years since St. Patrick established Iho Christian religion in Ireland. Ho was ono of the moat extraordi nary men that ever lived. It Is not known where ho was born. It makes no difference to us , however , where ho first saw the light of day. It is sufllcient for us to know that ho labored and prayed for more than sixty years In behalf of the Irish people : that ho lifted them out of the uantness of paganism * Into the glorious sunlight of clirlstlanltythat ; ho has been the moans proximate and remote of bringing about the eternal salvation aud T happiness of millions of Irish men and women from his own day down to the present. No greater love can any man give than to lay down his lifo for his neighbor. Bt. Patrick was willing te suffer martyrdom. JHo actually spent sixty years In praying , fasting , preaching , suffering , not that ho & might save us from some temporal evil , not that ho right 'procure for us worldly riches and 4 oners , but that ho might give UBSomcthln i.moro valuable than nil the wealth , than all the honors , than oven life itself ; namely , the faith of JesuslOhrlst , which is the subsuincoof things to bo hoped for , which is the germ , the seed , the very first spark of everlasting glory. Never did man , before or smeyj , do as much tor our people. Never , before or since , was a man so ardently loved by the Irish pcoplo us the glorious , Im mortal St. Patrick. "Wo delight , this morning , In going back Jn Imagination through the centuries that lie between us and the glorious Kaster day when our palron saint first appeared on the hill ot | Tarn. Wo love to think of him as ho np- jioarcd In Iho presence of the king , the nobles , and the cards ot Erin. Crosier In \ band unit with mitra shining brighter than the diamonds of the cast on his head , his in mi tie envelop ing his stately form , ho stood forth in that dlstiiigulihod assembly to toll the story ot God's jjroat lovejor iniin ; how , in the begin ning , God had created man a perfect being of his kind and placed Him In the midst of in- . describublo earthly felicity ; h'ow , after man had forfeited IiU happiness mm his glorious destiny hereafter , ( Jed bad mercy and sent lit * only begotten Son to dlo tot the human- race to redeem it from Rin and to restore all that had boon lost. For the tlrst time , thcao bards uud wise men heard of the mystery of tbo trinity , the incarnation , death und resur rection of the Son of God , und the operation /n the church ot the Holy Ghost. "So well did Patrick preach , nndEontrlctly and heroically did ho Ilvo In accordance with thn principles of inoraiitjvwlilch he taught , that hlx success was Immediate , nnd soon became universal throughout the nation of the Irinli. HlH severe and holy volco wont straight , to the hearts of the Irish people , jvho luivu always bucn quick and gcnciouy In the. love which they havn axtcudod to those who have taken the trouble to treat them Jiindly nnd decently. " Father McCarthy then concisely and olo- fluently reviewed more minutely some of the life-labors of St. Patrick , ilia wonderful suc cess which attended them and Ineradicable XnunnoV in which ho bud planted thn seed of Christianity in the Irish heart. In proof of ' thin ho rofurred to the religious persecution to whloh the Irish people have been sub jected und the manner In which they have withstood all attempts to dlsposcss them of their cherished faith. Some of the horrors ct thc u persecutions ho palutod in lurid colors , and , in bringing to a close- his adinlr- nblo address , said ) J 'U U dlOhult to keep the law of God when i It looms to bo to our intorc.n or n sratllica- Xllon ot the passions to violate it. As a poo- pie , you have proved this to be possible. In fclilt consists your chlof glory.

This would bo n frull lens celebration or commemoration o St. Patrick , my friends , if wo did not re fleet scrlouslyupon Iho duties , the respons bllltlcs which devolve upon u as the tic posltorlos of the Catholic faith which w nave Inherited from our ancestors.

The way to do this is to secure fo your children n Christian education nnd t sot before them your own irronroach able examples. Try to bo coed and mode cltl/cns of this pront and glorious country God has nlroady elono wonderful thing through the Irish. Greater things nro t como. I have no doubt that the remotes posterity of man would rise up to bless th Irish as the sturdiest and most successful dc fenders of the Christian religion that God ha ever rulsod.

Green was the favorite color atBoyds' las ) night , where it tinted the programme , deco rated the gentlemen and adorned the ladies. Not even the damp , gloomy weather seemed to have any effect on it , but like the cause of Ireland , gleamed brightest under the most an favorable circumstances. It was there In ill shades , from the darker colors of the iash to the bright llttlo shamrock , and it kept crowding into the auditorium until bj 5:30 : o'clock , hundreds of emblems could bo distinguished throughout the hall. ( Yt that hour the baud of tha A. O. H. filed jpon the stage , uud in their neat uniform ! formed un appropriate background while they played the opening overture. As the itralns of the music died away and thq play- : rs passed behind the scenes , Chairman O'Kcofo ' made the opening address , and iftor drinking a toast to the day in the cold nrator allowed by Mayor Broatch , ho bade the audience an Irishman's welcome. Ind lentally ho mentioned that the A. O. H. lumbered 400,000. He was followed by the St. Phllomcna choir in an excellent rendition 3f "My Country , 'Tis ot Thee , " with Mr. Tules Lombard as soloist. Next came an ad- Iress from the Uev. P. F. McCarthy , and his theme was "St. Patrick. " Ho concluded an eloquent address by say ing : "Who knows but by next St. Patrick's lay we shall sco all our hopes for the wol- Tavo of the country wo love so well fully and lomplotoly re'alizodl" Once more the A. O. H. band corno on. and rendered a number of selections from Irish iiclodics. They were followed by Miss itacia Crowley in a recitation of an original ) oem entitled "Uobert Emmott. " It was lard to say whether the poem or the manner n which itvas rucitcd 'wcro most entitled lo : rcdll , but In both she showed herself to bo i true daughter of Erin , with all the olo- lucnco and pnety lhat is characteristic of its shlldron. Aa no encores wcro permitted , she vas unabla to respond to repealed calls , but vas made the recipient of an elegant bouquet. Uicutcuant Kinzio followed in the solo , 'Come Back to Erin , " and woh veil-deserved applause.

"An clec- ion to-day , " ho said , "would place Gladstone meo more at tha helm , and ho would give a ncasura of freedom to Ireland , that would Hump him as the greatest statesman of the ago. ago.Ho brought tils remarks to a close with nn ilonucnt peroration. Walter Emerson who was present kindly ionscutcd to give a cornet solo. His reputa- .ion is world wide , and bo did it justice. The livery notes seemed to speak as they rang ml , and swelled through tha building whllo .ho audlonco listened to the old familiar airs ) f 'Klllarnoy" und "Tho Last UOHO of Sumner - nor , " as they had never heard them before. EIo was rapturously encoredand was followed by tlio A. OII. . band , which also did itsull lustlcc. The solo , "Kathleen Mavourneen , " by Mlsa Fannlo Arnold , came next ana was sung in a manner that brought down the housoand led nor to respond with u lullaby.
