Cardinal O’connell Favors Joint Manate for Palestine


While praising the British Government for its excellent rule of Palestine, Cardinal O’Connell of Boston, who arrived here today on the “Franconia” after a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, stated that he would prefer another mandate in which other nations, including America, would take part.

Cardinal O’Connell recently complained to the Pope, according to reports from Rome, of the British administration in Palestine, claiming that it discriminated against the Catholics.
