diplomats and the Roman nobility. From
all parts of the Catholic world prelates
and priests had Journeyed hither to par
ticipate In the celebration. From the
United States there was present a pil
grimage of more than 1.000 lay member
of the church, headed by a distinguished
delegation of churchmen that Included
Bishop O'Donnell of Brooklyn, Bishop
Chatard pf Indianapolis, President Mor

composed of the entire papal court, 600
patriarchs, cardinals, archblahops and
bishops. A roar of cheering rose from
the multitude on the pope's appearance.
but the applause was quickly hushed
by the guards. When the cortege reached
the choir the pope alighted, took his
seat on the pontifical throne, and the
cardinals and other ecclesiastics massed
around him. The solemn ceremony of
the papal mass was then proceeded with.
A feature of the impressive ceremonies
was the singing of Perosl's new cantata.
Crowned With Diamonds',
The crowning of the mosaic picture
of "Our Lady" followed the celebration
of the papal mass, exactly SO years
ago today, Immediately after the mass
In which the dogma of the Immaculate
conception was 'defined, Pius IX set a
rich crown on this Image, but the new
crown placed there today by Pope Plus
X is vastly more precious. It consists
of 1). huge stars, formed of hundreds
of precious stones, and united by an
I auerole of solid gold.
The jewels were contributed by Catho
lics from all over the world, especially
by the sodalities of the .Children of
Mary, the pope himself presenting' the
largest and most valuable diamonds,
taking them from several rings and
tiaras left by the lata pope. The crown,
which la said to be worth several hun
dred thousand dollars, waa made by the
pontifical Jeweler, who spent several
months on tlx work. After the Imsge
of the virgin had been crowned by the
pope a solemn Te Oeum was sung, the
whole congregation joining In the re
sponses with the special choir. The
music throughout the functloa was un
der the charge of Abbe Perosl and strict
ly Gregorian, to comply with the per
sonal wishes of the pop.
An interesting feature in connection
with the present Jubilee celebration has
been somewhat overshadowed by the
brilliant ceremonies In St. Peter's. This
is the "Marian congress now in prog
ress in the vast Church of the Twelve
Apostles, and In the halls of the Can
cellarla and the Roman seminary. All
countries of the civilised world are rep
resented in the congress and also In
the Marian exposition, which ocouples
the eight large halls on the firstfloor
of the Lateran palace.
History of Festival.
The festival of the Immaculate con
ception of the blessed virgin Is traceable
In the Greek church from the end of
the fifth century, and in the Latin dates
from the seventh century. A great con
troversy prevailed for a long time in
the west as to whether and in what
sense the conception of the blessed vir
gin Mary was to be held Immaculate,
and In what sense the blessed virgin
herself was to be held conceived without
sin. In the end, at the Instance of
bishops In various parts of the church.
Pope .Pius IX addressed a circular io
the bishops of each nation calling for
their opinion and that of their people
aa to tho faith of the church on the
On the receipt of replies all but abso
lutely unanimous, the pope Issued a
solemn decree In Rome. In a numerous
council of bishops, on December 8, 1854,
declaring the doctrine to be an article
of Catholic belief, and proposing it as
such to the universal church. On the
promulgation of this dogma, which has
been accepted throughout the Catholic
world, churches named after the im
maculate conception aprang up In the
United States first, and afterwards
throughout Christendom generally.
On the occasion, 60 years ago, when
the doctrine was formerly declared, tab
lets were placed in St. Peter's recording
the names of all the cardinals and
bishops who took psrt In the council.
Of all these hundreds the last survivor
was the late Pope Leo XIII, .whose namo
occurs on the list far down among the
I cardinals of the time. The late pops
was looking forward eagerly to the Jub
loe celebration. In which, however, ho
was to be denied taking part by the
hand of death.
