PASSIONISTS NAMED FOR CHINA MISSION New York, July 3O.Solemn de- parture services or five Passionist missionaries who are leaving for the Chinese field were held Sunday in St. Michael's Monastel:y, West Hoboken. The missionaries are the Rev. Edmund Campbell, C. P.; Rev. Duns'tan Thomas, C. P.; Rev. Constantine Leech, C. P.; Rev. Quentin Olwell, C. P. and the Rev. Arthur Benson, C. P. They comprise the third group of Passionist missionaries sent to the Chinese mission within the last two years. With the advent of the new recruits the Passionist missions in China, which are located in the Proovince ot i North Honan, will number thirteen i priests and one brother. It is expect- ed that this group will shortly be i augmented to twenty-five. The dls- trict was formerly in charge of the Spanish Augustinians and has a popu- lation of 22,000,000 of whom about 13,000 are Catholics. The sermon at the departure cere- mony was preached by the Very Rev. John J. Hickey, pastor of St. Joseph's church. SMALLEST CHAPEL IN WORLD SEATS ONLY EIGHT PEOPLE Fort Atkinson, Ia., July 30.A lit- tle stone chapel dedicated to St. An- thony, situated five miles east of Fort Atkfnson, is said to be the smallest church in the world. It seats a con- gregation of only eight persons. The doors are always open and fresh flowers are kept constantly on the altar Hundreds of Catholics motor- ing in this vicinity visit the chapel, the outside measurements of wlfich are 12 by 20 feet. Inside are two seats on either side of the aisle, each seat holding two persons, thus giving seat- ing accommodations for a congrega- tion of eight. The history of the church goes back to 1848 when a French missionery visiting in Cincinnati induced John Gartner, a Frenchman who had served in Napoleon's armies, to locate at Fort Atkinson. Six Ohio families later joined Gartner and an old log build- ing abandoned by Indians was con- verted into a chapel. This structure was destroyed by firs and Gartner and his son-in-law, F. J. Huber, built the present unique chapel. Each year, on St. Anthony's day, the descendants of tile ttubers gather at the chapel to honor the memory of their grandparents. The bodies of seventy members of the Huber family are buried in the lit- tle cemetery. FIRST NATIVE BISHOP OF LATIN RITE NAMED FOR EAST INDIAN SEmi New York, July 28.Word has reached the national offices of the So- ciety for the Propagation of the Faith from the Sacred Congregation of Pro- paganda of several appointments which cannot fail to be of the greatest importance in the future of Catho- licity in India. For the first time in the history of the Church in India native priests of the Latin rite have now been made bishops. A new diocese, Tuticorin, formerly a part of the diocese of Trichinopoly, has been erected, and a native Indian Jesuit priest, the Rev. Tiburtius Roche, has been named as its first bishop. Msgr. Joseph Pais an Indian secular priest has named apostolic administrator episcopal dignity of the diocese of Mangalore. By these appointments the Holy Father makes evident his desire to further native vocations in missionary lands. Only recently, Pius XI urged all missionary priests and bishops to make the formation of a native clergy their chief concern.

THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, 1923 SOUTHWARK OBSERVES DIAMOND JUBILEE OF ITS CATHEDRAL CIVIL AUTHORITIES AID-- BUILDING STARTED SECRET- LY BECAUSE OF BIGOTRY. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) London, July 23.St. George's Ca- thedral, the only cathedral dedicated ton' England's Patron Saint and the mother Church of the diocese el Sout wark, has just celebrated its dla- mend jubilee. Seventy-five years ago, when the stones of this cathedral Church first began to arise, their very appearance was a sign and a portent a sign that the old days of blood- shed and persecution were past, an that Catholic Engiishmen were free  worship in the Faith of their fathers. The mayor of Southwark and t1e town clerk of the municipality were present in the cathedral for the jubi- lee celebration, and the presence of Southwark's chief magistrate at thin act of Catholic worship is a sign of the different state of affairs that ex- ists now, compared with the old con- ditions, outlined by Father Bamptor,, of the Farm Street Jesuits. Going back to the early clays of the cathedral's history, Father Bamp- eta told how, in the secrecy of the early hours of the morning, the foun- dation stone was laid, the Cathoh. of that day being femfful that a hos- tile demonstration might be made. And then, when the great churc, emerged from the hands of the build- E " " ers, ngmno was still in partibus in- fidelium. There was no territorla, 1/ierarchy, as in the present day. The eight bishops who attended the in- augural ceremony were the Vicaru- Apostolic who exercised ecclesiastical jurisdiction in England. With them were 240 priests, and a congregation of three thousand. Tha ceremony was--said au:er Bamptona chal- lenge to Protestant Enand and a noteworthy event. On Site of "No-7"opery,, Riots. The very title which the Catholics of those days gave to their cathedral was a challenge.

MAHONEY DENTIST Suite 521-22-23 Domaghey Bldg:" LITTLE ROCK, ARK. George Gordon, that visionary, who wobbled between Christianity and Ju- daism, staged those rials known a the No-Popery Riots, when howling mobs of frantic Londoners set out to wreck and loot the Catholic chapels and the home of Catholic citizens. There is no need to recall this story. Dickens has told it, with all its shame- ful details, in "Barnaby Rudge." But on the spot where the name of England's Patron had been so ou- raged, the descendanzs of that Catho- lic remnant that had remained staunch through three centuries raised a Cathedral to Saint George the Martyr. So was the challenge offered to bigotry. The Engish Catholics of today arc in a position that is, perhaps, unique in the whole worht.
