Archbishop William Hlt kley Gross, of
the Oregon Roman Catholic church,
did at fit. Joseph's hospital, Baltimore,
Md., this morning. Hit grace bad been
1.1 ill health for some time, and during
the first week of last September, be de
cided to visit bis old borne in Bslti
moro. Then he did not expect his ailment
would terminate fatally. But about
eight days ago he was taken to bed, from
which he never arose, passing into a
tranquil and eternal sleep, from general
debility.' Ilia death was an unexpected
one, as up to within few hours of bis
grace's demise be gave evidence of re
cuperation. The Telegram gives the folowing
sketch ot bis life:
The Most Reverend William II. Gross,
D. D , C. BP. R., third archbishop of
Oregon, waa born in the city of Balti
more, Md , on June 12, 1837. The Gross
family came originally from Alsace, and
and its American founder, Jacob Gross,
and his son, John J. Gross the second,
was engaged in mercantile business in
Baltimore, and he also held office as one
of the officials of the port of Baltimore,
The archbishop's mother, Rachel, was a
descendant of an Irish exile of 1798.
The archbishop often referred, both In
priyate and public, to the aaintly and
the devoted mother, whose tender care
and loving solicitude watched over his
early years. When she died, his sister,
Mary Cordelia Gross, then bat 16 years
of age, took her place, and for 20 years
performed all the duties of a mother to
ward her six younger brothers, Joseph,
Alfred, Louis, William, Mark and
The archbishop received bis early edu
cation at the parochial school, attached
fto Bt. Vlncent'a church, Baltimore. In
this church be also made bis first com
munion. In 1857 he was invested with the re
ligious habit aod formally began bis
career as a Redemptoriat novice. His
novitiate, However, did not pass over
without a severe test. Ilia health gave
way to such a degree that bia life was
despaired of. On April 4,1858, he made
hia first rows, when his aim was cen
tered upon becoming a perfect Redemp
toriat In March, 1863, the deceased
prelate waa ordained a prelate at An
napolis, ML, by Archbishop Kentrick,
He remained a part of the time aa
army chaplain at Annapolis. Hia ex
periences during the civil war were of a
trying order. He waa almost inces
santly in the hot piiat, the field of battle,
the skirmish line or at the lonely out-
In July, 1871, he was sent to Boston
for mission work, in which he was pre
While engaged in this aealooa work
the holy see startled him by appointing
him successor to Bishop Tersici, of Sa
vannah, Ga., and he was consecrated
by Archbishop Bayley, of Baltimore.
The now dead prelate then was only 36
When Archbishop Gross was pro
moted to the archiepiscoual see of Ore
gon in 1885, he could point to a splendid
cathedral erected by his exertions
among a people of scanty means, the
number of priests increased to 27,
churches and chapels to 30, institutions
and orphan asvlums to 14. And all this
was done in a Catholic population not
exceeding 25,000, And what was of par
amount importance to the future pro
gress of the Catholic church in Georgia,
wherever there was a Catholic priest,
there was also to be found a parochial
school. The record of bis administration
of the diocese of Savannah is, indued a
When Archbishop Seghers resigned in
1884, in order to devote his life more
particularly to (he Indian missions of
the extreme Northwest the holy see se
lected Bishop Gross to succeed him, It
was hard for Bishop Gross to sever the
ties of love and friendship which bound
him to the faithful people ot Savannah,
but, ever obedient to the will of his su
periors,, he bowed his head to the decis
ion ot Rome and entered in May, 1885,
on the duties of his new office. His po
sition was a difficult one. He bad to
fill the place of a prelate whose saintly
life and benign demeanor had won all
It was at his instance that the Bene
dictine Fathers at Mount Angel opened it
college for the higher education of the
young, which is advancing yearly in the
number of its pupils and the efficiency
of its training, Later on, at bis request,
ja lesser and a greater seminary nave
been added, so that young Oregonians
art now provided right at borne with a!)
the facilities needed for attaining the
education, required by the church In can
didates, for the priesthood.
The Cbriatian Brothers have also been
introduced Into Oregon to take charge of
8t. Michael's tollege and the paro
chial school attached to the cathedral.
Academlea for the education of young
ladles have increased front eight to
twenty. In addition to the religious or
ders of women already In the diocese,six
additional orders have been introduced.
Parochial schools have been established
In a large number of parishes, and
whereas in 1885 there were only two, to
day there are 27 with an attendance of
2500 pupils; while the total number of
ehildren under Catholic care has in
creased from 897 to 6460.
Io other works of charity his seal has
been no leaa manifested. A magnificent
new hospital has been erected on Port
land Heights by the Sisters of Charity of
Providence, to take tbe place of their
former building; and a new hospital has
been bnilt io Baker City, of which the
Sisters of St. Francis are in charge. He
has also established a new home for the
aged in East Portland, and placed it in
charge of tbe Sisters of Mercy. Tbe
Sisters of tbe Good Shepherd, at his sug
gestion, bave established a House of
Refuge for fallen women, near Oregon
City, and, aided by the generous charity
of the faitnful, have erected a large and
commodious building in which to carry
out their work of mercy.
On the 20th. 27th and 28th of last
April tbe silver jubilate of Archbishop
Grose waa celebrated here. On thia oc
casion, which waa the greatest church
eyent in the history of Oregon, a beauti
ful residence waa presented to him.
Howo Koko, Nov. 14. The Filipino
junta representatives of General Aguinal
do and the Philipino government here
have drawn up what they designate "an
appeal to President McKinley and the
American people," but what is in reality
rather in the nature of an arraignment of
American actions in tbe Phillipinea.
John Barrett, formerly United States
minister at Siam. waa asked by the junta
to present tbe memorial to the United
Biatea government and people. Mr.
Barrett replied that, while be could bare
no official Influence regarding the status
of the matter, he was satisfied that i
document whicb represented the sent!
ments of the Filipinos would receive at
tbe hands of the Americana all Ihe con
sideration it merited.
The memorial says .-
"We, tbe Hong Kong representatives
of onr countrymen, appeal to tbe'great
and good judgment of President McKin
ley and tbe spirit of fairness and justness
of tbe American people, as it is always
shown in their regard for the petitions
of tbe weak and oppressed.
"While the fate of tbe islands Is still
undecided, and we are doing all in;our
power to prevent a conflict between the
Americans and the Filipinos awaiting
patiently the conclusion of the Paris
conference, we Implore the intervention
of the president, supported by the will ol
the people, to end the slights shown our
leaders, soldiers and people by some of
the American naval and military officers
although we do not wish to wrong
Admiral Dewey or General Otis."
Tbe memorial then avers that "false
reports are spread broadcast alleging that
the Filipinos are responsible for the
friction, points out that the tension is
becoming greater every day, and any
moment a shot may be fired by an irre
sponsible American or Filipino soldier
leading to great bloodshed," aod be
seeches tbe United States, "to help tbe
junta to control our own people by direct
ing American officers to temper their
offices with friendship, justice and fair
ness." "From the commencement of the
hostilities," continues the memorial,
"the Filipinos acceded to all American
demands, but after bottling up the Span
iards in Manila, the Filipinos were com
pletely ignored when the Americans ad
vanced, and thus deprived of the fruits
of victory. Now, after menths of cam
paigning, the Filipino troops have been
ordered beyond the suburbs, where they
have no quarters, and where supplies
are difficult to obtain. All our launches
have been seized because of foolish
rumors that we would attack the Ameri
cans, and when we asked explanations
we were not even answered. The Span
lards, of late the enemies of tbe A nieri
cens, have been shown every consider
ation, while tbe Filipinos, their friends
and allies, are often treated as enemies.
After asserting that the Filipinos uni
formly acted upon the advice of the
Americans and were informally recog
nized by them until Manila was captured
and the memorial goes on to say :
"We can only attribute thia sudden
change to orders from Washington to
American officials at Manila to avoid
compromising the American government
by a recognition of the Filipinos or tbeir
government. The Americans are carry
ing out these instructions literally, losing
sight of the former friendly intercourse
and assistance and of tbe assurance the
American officials gave Agulnaldo, which
he communicated to his followers."
After emphasizing the Junta's "abso
lute confidence In President McKinley
and the people of the great republic,"
stating that "our protests are not
prompted by animosity, but are directed
against conditions existing at Manila,
and not against the American govern
ment and people," acknowleeging "oar
gratitude to American arms lor destroy
ing the Spanish power in the Philippines"
and expressing "a hope that the
islands are not tjbe returned to Spain,"
the memorial concludes thus;
"We await the arbitrament of the
peace commission with even greater
interest than the Americans, because it
concerns our land, our happioess and
our freedom. In the meantime we shall
pray for peace and a perfect understand
ing with tbe Americana."
