Eegal Splendor Marks Ceremo
nies at New Catholic
MANY PRELATES ASSIST
(CtmttaiMd fram Ice Am.)
Bishop J. Henry Tihen of Lincoln.
Very Rev. John Jeannette of Omaha
read the address of welcome from
the Omaha priests and at the very
close of the ceremony the new bishop
himself made a brief address.
Pays Fine Tribute.
Bishop Tihen, in his sermon, paid
a most glowing tribute to the per
sonality of the new bishop of Omaha.
"Had it been left to your choice.
Catholics of Omaha, to choose your
own bishop, and had you known him.
you would have chosen Archbishop
Harty," he said. "He is a man of
ability without ostentation or ego
tism; zeal without harshness. He
never asks others to do as much as
lie docs himself. While he carefully
apportions the burdens to the shoul
ders of others according to their
strength, he seems to take it for
granted that no burden is too great
"To the citizens of Omaha and Ne
braska lie brings - the message.
'Peace' He comes to take a part in
your civic life, in your political af
fairs. "Are you surprised that I say that?
You might well be if I used it in a
certain sense. But I do not use it
in the sense that means a meddle
somcv interfering, pernicous way, a
way that is injurious to religion as
to other activities.
"In that way he will not take part.
He may never mention such thing,
from the pulpit. His name may
never appear as a leader in civic af
fairs. But he will take a part, though
a silent part and a powerful part, for
he stands for that principle enunci
ated by Christ. 'Seek ye first the king
dom of heaven.' .
"He will stand for that which is
fair against that which is foul, for the
noble against the ignoble. And that
God who was with him in St. Louis,
where he won the heart of the whole
people; who was with him in Manila,
where he was beloved by all. that j
God will be with him still as he min
isters here among us."
"The office of the priest is so high
and sacred because it is divine that
we are apt to think that' individuality
and personality count for nothing.
And, to a certain extent, that is true.
The Catholic priest and the Catholic
layman and woman understood the
sacredness of this high office and are
so imbued with its sacredness that
they are inclined to put it ahead of
God Chooses Men.
"But personality- has much to do
with the office. God prefers to
choose from among men. J he hrst
apostles were men of strong person
alities The charm of ocrsonalitv. the
power of mentality, the sweetness of
morality and the ardor of spirituality
.are important and these arc splendid
ly embodied in tne new Disnop or
Bishop Tihen then referred to the
war in Europe. "Had we the patriot
ism of the world instead of the pa
triotism of locality there would be
no world deluged in blood," he de
clared. "The sage declared,. ' love
my family more than myself, my coun
try more than my family, humanity
more than my country and God above
Referring again to the new bishop
he spoke of the aloneness that must,
to a certain-degree, be his,
"He will be, to some extent, 'solus
in monte,' alone on the mountain," he
said. "He will 'tread the winepress
alone.'. He will bear his burdens him
self and much of the initiative of the
diocese must come frrrn him. He will
be alone, yet not alone, for God is
The bishop speaks clearly and dis
tinctly and with great deliberation.
He stood near the front of the sanc
tuary, fully vested and with the cro
sier in his hand. He turned first to
the throne, where sat Archbishop
Keane, and thanked him for the
honor of his presence. He thanked
Bishop Hennessy and Bishop Tihen
for the prominent parts which they
had taken, the "illustrious and vener
able members of the hierarchy, the
clergy of the diocese."
"The thought of your sublime call
ing and the grace that God has be
stowed upon you must make you con
tinue to be men of sacrifice," he said.
"You have always been a noble clergy
and I give thanks to the great, good
God that He has called me to minis
ter among you.
"To the laity, whom I see here for
the first time, I will say that the tra
ditions of Omaha have strengthened
me and the history of Omaha, with
the name of Creighton, will be a
source of light and joy to me.
"I salute our non-Catholic friends
and citizens. 'Other sheep I have
which are not of this fold,' said the
Master. It will be a source of the
deepest joy to me to give them en
couragement, to show them the
beauty of our faith and the wondrous
power which we have in the Catholic
church in the sacramental system."
He referred feelingly to his former
archdiocese of Manila, "a gem of
Christianity in the midst of 400,000,
000 who are not Christians."
He paid a high compliment to the
Catholic sisters who teach and minis
ter in hospitals in Omaha.
A glowing tribute he paid to the
late Bishop Scannell, his predecessor.
"Though he could not live to see
this splendid cathedral finished," he
said, "God has given him a greater
joy and I know that he is today in

May Reach Omaha,
Railroad Men Say
Following the example set by the
Northwestern and the Milwaukee rail
roads a couple of days ago, all of the
other roads operating to the east have
placed an embargo on shipments of
everything except meats and perish
able freight to points beyond Chicago.
1 he embargo applies to freight com-
ing in off connecting lines.
Railroad men believe that by mak- i
ing this embargo complete it is soon ;
going to relieve the situation and that
within a short time the eastern and
central railroad terminals will be
ciearea up and cars- sent back into :
the territory where Ihcy belong. How- 1
ever, after that they look for another
I congestion, with a grain embargo thai 1
, may reach Omaha. I
At this time the Omaha elevators t
are full to overflowing and the same
conditions maintain in Chicago, Min-1
neapons, St. Louis and Kansas City.
Grain men assert that with the rais
ing of the eastern embargo and the
release of freight cars, these cars will
go back into the grain producing
country and there be loaded. The
loads will start toward the grain mar
kets and then it will be but a short
time until the congestion will be as
acute at grain storage terminal points
as it now is along the Atlantic coast.
