NOTED LEADER OF
CATHOLICS IS DEAD;
lCuntluud Tram Vf
tim at his eminence's bedside for mt
: eral days. ,
' The public was informed of the change
in the condition of the most distinguished
lerg-yman of the Catholic church in the
: United States late on Tuesday.
. The first evidence of the failure cf
; Cardinal Gibbons' strength was noted
; late lat year, while he was at Havre
le Grace. At that time be was seized
' -w ith a momentary fnlntnea and seemed
about to fail while delivering a sermon.
i On December 31, Bishop Corrigan Is
Fsuei a statement to all pastors asking
them to request their people to pray for
the cardinal's recovery or his happy
(death. The cardinal was anointed for
. tae second time, the first time havi.
ljcn two weeks earlier. It was thought
toy those most intimately ; associated
with him that he would never be able
to leave the Shriver home.
HHOWK RKTruSISO STRENGTH
In this Illness, however, he manifested
the name tenaciousness and resolution
hich he had shown all his life, and he
surprised his friends not only by recov
ering sufficient strength to make the
trip by motor to his residence in Baltl
more, on January -3, but once there, grew
stronger. The cardinal subsequently
made frequent short motor trips In the
i city and iLs environs and moved about
' his residence in a wheelchair. He never
recovered sufficient ; strength,' however,
to take again Into his own hands the
administration of his duties as the exe
' cutive head of the archdiocese of Balti
more and his many other duties In con
nection with the church. J j -
Cardinal Gibbons was the' second
American to be elevated to the cardi
ialate and with his death the question
has been revived as to whether the ee
; of the Unman Catholic church - In th
United States will be transferred frcm
Baltimore or whether the seat of the
hierarchy win remain 'in this city be
cause of its close proximity to the na
, tion's capital.. .
CARDINAL GIBBONS ROSE

Ireland, but returned -to America at the
age of 14 and became an errand boy for
a grocer in New Orleans.
He took up his studies for the priest
hood when a mere youth, being ordained
In Balty-nore at the age of 27. His re
ligious education was received: in the
historic St. Charles-college In Mary
