Mansion oddities impress Ukrainian Catholic leader By BERNIE GOEDHART EDMONTON (CP) From the sidewalk it's an imposing, fascinating, but somehow unapproachable the kind you drive by slowly to admire but don't dare stop to examine. From behind the small wire gate, walking towards the old- fashioned door, it becomes a large, friendly home which harbors many secrets. Magrath Mansion, a stately home on Ada Boulevard in east Edmonton, was built about 1912 by W. J. Magrath, a wealthy realtor whose most memorable contribution to the city's history seems to have been the construction of this red-brick building. It was the home of a mem- ber of Edmonton society and saw its share of parties, balls, social life. Today, it is the home of the Ukrainian Catho- lic bishop and is owned by the Ukrainian Catholic Episcopal Corp. of Western Canada. While not old in Eastern Ca- nadian terms, the 62-year-old house is only seven years younger than Alberta is as a province. It has seen many changes- serves a different purpose to- day than it did 60 years but is no less impressive. JJroud of house Bishop Neil Savaryn, who shares the house with three priests and two nuns, left a desk piled with paperwork to- join in a tour of the house, justifiably pleased with the little oddities such a building oflers. He pointed out the call sys- buttons and an old-fashioned earphone or which Magrath and his family summoned ser- vants. The front hall is perhaps the most striking part of the interior, featuring a winding staircase of warm, polished banister carved and, at the lower landing, slightly rounded and protruding, remi- niscent of a pulpit. A reception room to the right of the entrance has a ceiling decorated with flowers and by an artist from said Bishop Savaryn. Across the hill, another re- ception room boasts a fire- place which the bishop saidl had been brought from- England by Mrs. Magrath. "His wife travelled a lot. Everything she saw and liked, she incorporated in this house." bedrooms The three-storey structure has nine bedrooms. The base- ment included a swimming pool, but this has been con- verted to a library where diocesan archives are stored. Little written information is available on the Magrath family and their home. Much of the knowledge is passed word-of-mouth. A few basic facts are avail- able from local history books. W. J. Magrath was born near Peterborough, Ont, in 1870 and died in 1920 at the age Robbery fear linked to death of quiet man DETROIT (AP) Rudolf Kordich was the kind of man who would turn the other cheek if someone bothered him The former Chrysler Corp. employee spent much of his spare time working for St. La- zarus Church and was to have been honored at a May 4 testi- monial dinner by the congregation. Now Kordich is dead at 57, Crusader journey retraced by riders JERUSALEM (AP) You'll die of thirst, hunger, cold or heat, their mother told them. Brigands will kill you. Please don't go! But Evelyne, 27 and Co- rinne. 20. Coquet, whose home is in Nevers, France, set out seven months ago on horse- back to follow the route the Crusaders took from Paris to Jerusalem. A French magazine paid their expenses and Evelyne sent back weekly reports on their progress. Their two seven-year-old geldings, Mickey and Donald, were hitched to a mulberry tree in the backyard of the hotel. A few bones were found for Pluto, the mongrel who followed the women across West Germany, Hungary, Yu- goslavia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Syria. Lebanon and Jordan. Evelyne and Corinne were met in Jericho by their mother. The girls journeyed across the Alps and the Balkan range. Garbathon crews to aid handicapped apparently frightened into a heart attack by two men who pestered him during a bus ride, then robbed him as he lay dying on the bus floor. Kordich, who had a history of heart trouble, was returning from Chicago after attending a meeting of the Serbian Orthodox Church, didn't want to bother his family for a ride home, so he took the bus from the airport, said his wife, Dorothy. KILLED BY FEAR Authorities said two men sitting near Kordich in the rear of the bus started harassing him during the trip Saturday, and Kordich slumped to the floor unconscious. Witnesses said the two men who had been bothering him started going through his clothing and took his wallet An ambulance was called and the passengers on the bus transferred to another vehicle. The two men who annoyed Kordich went with them, witnesses said. The wallet, still containing in a secret compartment, was found on the second bus. Dale Rice, 21, of Detroit, was charged with unarmed robbery. The second man is still being sought. of 51. He was involved in cheese export while in On- tario, came to Edmonton with his family in 1904 and turned to real estate. He began selling lots in east Edmonton in 1911 and paid the city towards con- struction of a street car line to that area. In 1912, he ran for mayor but lost. Mr. Magrath married Ada Lake in 1894 and the couple had one son, Adrian. "Theirs was one of the most beautiful homes of the city and was ever the centre of a warm-hearted and generous provincial librarian John Blue wrote in Alberta: Past and Present. Mission land Tom Court, superintendent of restoration at the provin- cial museum, said the house was built on land which had been part of an Anglican mission. "It's huge southern man- he said. "The columns on the portico were made in Louisiana and the bathroom fixtures are reputedly from Paris, the marble in the bath- room from Rome." The Ukrainian Catholic Church obtained the house about 25 years ago from the city, which had taken it for taxes. The church restored the home, leaving most of it as it had been in Mr. Magrath's day. The church bought the house for said Rev. Michael Sopulak, one of its present occupants and publisher of the weekly Ukrainian News. The church paid more than for repairs, he added. Mr. Magrath had installed private sewers and had his own generators as source of electricity. Since acquiring the house, the church has had it connected to the city sewer and electrical systems. Father Sopulak said he had been against the church buy- ing the he thought it was too large. "But I think for this pur- pose (as bishop's palace) it's pretty good." Bishop Savaryn added that it is put to good use, not just by its residents but by the diocese as a whole. It pro- vides shelter for visiting priests and a site for such things as diocesan teas. He seems to relish its his- tory and knows he is helping preserve a landmark. Mr. Court shares his view. "I would say the last time I was in that house the Ukrai- nian Catholic Church had made a really nice attempt to restore what it was, not what they wanted it to be."
