.... a Bern Cathtiral
A cathedral mammoth In It dimen
sions, magnificent in Its decorations,
is the fond dream of the enthusiastic
Catholics of Lincoln.
Last Sunday the subject was an
nounced after high mass. The people
were requested to think the matter
over and decide In their own minds.
Tomorrow there will be a full and free
discussion and the matter will be de
bated pro and con.
St. Theresa's was never Intended for
a permanent place of worship. In fact
its name, "pro-cathedral," plainly des
ignates as much. The edifice merely
stands in place of a more costly one
which, at present, is a dream of the
future to be realized as soon as pos
sible. Thirteenth and M Is fast becoming a
business center and traffic will gradu

CHARLES A. HANNA.
Mr. Charles A. Hanna, who, by reason of a number of years' resi
dence In this city, is claimed as a Lincoln boy, has written a book. Mr.
Hanna now resides in Chicago. But this is a drawback and not an in
centive. Mr. Hanna came to Lincoln a number of years ago. He first
followed the business of a printer, but speedily became interested In
weighty problems. His natural bent toward finance won favor for him
with John R. Clark, then the great financial genius of Lincoln. He 'be
came associated with him in the First National bank, and later became
its vice president.
Mr. Hanna originally came from Cadiz, Ohio, which is not far from
Canton. He early interested himself in the task of getting Nebraska into
line for McKlnlcy, and he gave good help along this line. Later he
went to Chicago and was there made cashier of the postofflce. Later
Comptroller Charles G. Dawes made him a national bank examiner.
In his leisure moments Mr. Hanna has written a studious and well
conceived book on "The Scotch-Irish." It is thus spoken of by the
"Mr. Charles A. Hanna, who as a national bank examiner, doubtless
has a natural love for infinite research, has contributed a most elabo
rate and valuable work to genealogy. 'The Scotch-Irish,' being a study
of The Scot in North Britain. North Ireland, and North America,' is a
book that has wider scope than-If it were simply a genealogical work,
however, and will probably be followed by a volume giving a detailed
history of Scotch-Irish families In America. Among its leading features
are a "brief history of Scotland from the beginning of the eighteenth cen
tury; an account of the plantation of Ulster by the Scotch In the time of
James I., as taken from contemporary records; the 'Ragman Roll' of
the-landowners of lowland Scotland in the time of Bruce; extended ac
counts of the origin and location of the families of Scotland; an account
ef the derivation of Scottish surnames in Scotland and in Ireland; to
gether with a consideration of the part the Scotch-Irish took In the
cetoBization, separation and the. final unification of the American colo
nies." The Critic also prints an excellent portrait of Mr. Hanna.
