Cardinal Gibbons has spared no effort
in the cause of good citizenship and
the uplifting of his fellow-man."
"You have portrayed your subject,
not, I fear, as he is, but as he should
be," responded the Cardinal. "One
merit only can I claim, and that Is an
ardent love for my native country and
her political Institutions. I consider
tho republic of the United States one
of the mort precious heirlooms ever
bestowed on mankind down the ages.
It Is the duty anL should be tho de
