those days embraced the entire state of
Pennsylvania, while the necessity or
desirability of a division was not con-
reded at once, it became apparent to
the authorities at Rome In the course
of a few years and on March 3. 1X6S,
a see was established at Scranton, with
ten counties comprising the diocese.

Bishop McFarlarid, of Hartford.
After quarter of a century's work in
this elevateij office and half a century
In the priesthood came another great
event In his life, the celebration of his
silver and golden Jubilee, at Christmas

which Is still fresh In the minds of the
public. Prelates and priests front

appreciation of one who hnd accom

What Bishop O' I lat a has accom

fdrm an Idea of the vastness of his
work, one must picture In mind the
condition of this diocese tweuty-tiv
years ago. when he came to Scranton
to build his calherdul and contrast It
with the Scranton diocese of today, one
of the largest, most Important and best
governed In the United States. A quar
ter of a century ago, to muke a strik
ing comparison, the total number of
priests in the diocese, twenty-five,
scarcely exceeded the number who now
care for flocks which require a pastor

Then there were only forty-seven
churches, two. religious schools, 400 pu
pils and a Catholic population of nbout
23,000, widely scattered. Now there are
seventy-eight churches with resident
priests, forty missions with churches,
over thirty stations, sevcrnl chapels
and about 130 priests; there are nearly
500 religious women Including novices
and postulants, and about twenty-five
theological students. There are over
forty parochial schools with an attend
ance tit 12.000 pupils; one college for
the higher education of boys, ten acad
emies for young ladies and the Catholic
population Is now estimated at 125,000.
The charitable Institutions founded
and supported by Bishop O'Hara need
but be mentioned, St. Pntrlck's Or

refused to allow his name to be men
tioned, on account of ccrtuin considera

substituted. The news! of the appoint
ment did not come from Hume until
Feb.. 5 lust, and the Papal bulls did not
arrive before the 2tli of the same
month. They were dated Feb. 1 and

HIS UAHKHD CHARACTERISTICS.
The new bishop's most prominent
characteristics are his unobtrusive
piety and an animating devotion in the
acquirement of knowledge. As the
future bishop of Scranton. his prudent,
judicious and conservative tempera
ment, thorough executive ability are
attainments which will exemplify in
his control of the diocese a masterly
policy. No better assurance of his
character can be given than to say
that when the venerable shepherd
now in charge lays down the dignity
of the eolscopate the new hlshop
will take up the thread of affairs, will
be a worthy successor, und will execute
with a similar thoroughness the inan
Ifold functions and requirements.

of the throng, to attempt Introductions
or to even permit of the usual custom
of kissing the cardinal's ring. A nod
and smile or wave of the hand was as
much as the cardinal and his party
could give by way of recognition of the
salutations. Bauer's orchestra and the
cathedral choir occupied the gallery
and at frequent Intervals enlivened the
occasion with appropriate ' selections,
the most appropriate being the ode to
Hisliop Hoban, which was rendered

breasts, which Is in accordance 'with
the etiquette which obtains at func
tions where a cardinal is the guest of

gray uniforms acted as guard of honor.

and the others acted ns ushers in the
corridors leading to the hall.

Through Rev. Father Peruzzi he ex
pressed himself as highly gratified with

made during the procession.
The inquiry as to the truth of the re

received the slightest intimation of It.
He expects to return In May or June.
