Bishop Talbot Court

"The remarkable feature of this
presentment." the "World will saj-, "Is
the -fact that Ave of the signers are
vestrymen of the Huntington Church
from which Dr. Irvine was expelled
by Blehep Talbot."
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 28. There -will
be no hearing of the charges against
Plshop -Etiiolbort Talbot, of the diocese of
I'ontral Pennsylvania, by .the- court recent
ly appointed by Bishop Tuttle. according
to churchmen who are well posted In the
anonlcaT laws of the Episcopal Church.
A complication lias developed which they
py wIU put a stop effectually to the pro
ceedings of the court of inquiry as now
The trouble comes from a recent change
in the canons of the church regarding
the appointment of a court of that nature.
The first intimation of the trouble comes
In the shape of an editorial in the Church
Standard, the oldest organ of the church
in this country. In .the issue of the Stand
ard, which will appear tomorrow. Rev.
Dr. John Fulton, the editor, saye in refer
ence to tho Irvine-Talbot case that the
presiding bishop' has constituted the board
of inquiry tinder a canon, which was su
perseded by a new canon of tho late gen
eral convention.
Tho new canon will come into operation
en January 1, 1905. The board if inquiry
is oallod to meot on January 10. and when
it does meot on that day it will not be
constituted as the new canon requires. It
will therefore have no .power to proceed
with the inquiry for which it is called.
Rev. Dr. tv. B. Bodine. who will be the
chairman of the committee on Inquiry, in
an interview tonight considers very im
portant the conclusions of Dr. Fulton. Dr.
Bodine explained that under the canon
which expires on January 1 a court of In
quiry is composed of 16 members. The
new canon provides for a court, or board,
consisting of only ten members. These
must be appointed by certain bishops de
signated by the canon. As the new canon
Is not yet In force, no court can be chosen
tinder its provisions and one chosen now
to comply with it would, it is claimed,
have no legal existence now. or at any
other time.
Men vereed In church law say the only
course open Is to let the present court
meet on the date named. It can then
decide that it rto longer has Jurisdiction
in such matters and refer the matter back
to Bishop TuAle. the presiding bishop,
for further action.
The mistake, or oversight, arose, it is
said, because the movement to procure
a presentment against Bishop Talbot was
begun last August and those who had it
in hand failed to tnke cognizance of the
change in the canonical law when it was
made at the 1b general convention.
Too III to Preside at B3hop' Talbot
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 28. Rev. Dr. W.
B. Bodine. of this city, who will preside
at thr -inquiry into the charges of Rev.
Ingraham Irvine against Bishop Ethel
bert Talbot, of the Central Pennsylvania
diocese of the Protestant Episcopal
"hurch. announced tonight that he had
received the presentment, and that it will
not be made public. He also said he had
received a letter from Rev. Dr. Morgan
Dlx, of New York, who declined to pre
side at the inquiry, owine to ill-health.
Dr. Bodine said that it Is probable that
a quorum of the committee will not be In
readiness on January .ao, when the first
session is io do now. and In that event the
opening session will have to be postponed.
Dr. Bodine fuchcr said that the com
mittee of Inquiry can do but one thing,
and that Is to decide whether the case-is
big enough to go to the church for trial.

Speaks for Brother Bishop.
PITTSBURG, Paj. Dec. 2S. Concerning
th published statements connected with
tho case against Bishop Talbot, Bishop
"Whitehead, of the Pittsburg diocese.
makes the following statement:
"I wish to say distinctly, out of love
for my brother bishop and in regard for
justice that In tho charges reported as
made against Bishop Talbot, of Central
Pennsylvania, no references have yet ap
peared to any wrong-doing on the part
of Bishop Talbot, but to opinions spoken
or written by him concerning a clergyman
whom Bishop Talbot had deposed, the
clergyman claims, unjustly."

New York Chemical Company Dis
claims Knowledge of Mrs. Bouton.
What was depended upon as one of
the strongest sources of Information on
what has become of Mrs. Bessie Bouton,
the supposed victim of the Cutler
Mountain tragedy, resulted this morn
ing In a setback to the Investigation
when a telegram was received from
New York, purporting to come from
the J. Parker Pray Chemical Manufac
turing Company, for whom Mrs. Bou
ton claimed to be a traveling represen
tative, stating that this firm had no
such agent on the road.
Chief of Police Reynolds Is not satis
fied with this telegram, however, and
has wired to New York again, asking
for further particulars as to the move
ments of Mrs. Bouton, basing his re
peated inquiry on the fact that Mrs.
Anna Bethman, a local hairdresser, or
dered tho goods through Mrs. Bouton
from this firm, and received tho goods,
delivery being in the regular course,
with the chemical manufacturing com
pany. as the shipping party.
It is believed that the inquiry be
came mixed up in transmission, and
the police are still confident that they
are on tho track of the woman who
was murdered on Cutler Mountain.
Other Inquiries sent out today are to
Syracuse, to tho relative of Mrs. -Bouton,
seeking to ascertain the name of
the dentist who performed the work on
the teeth of Mrs. Bouton. upon the re
ceipt of whose address he will be sent
for to come and Inspect the work done
in the mouth of the woman whose body
was found December 17, it being fully
believed that an opinion by the dentist
who performed the work on Mrs. Bou
ton's mouth will be conclusive as to
whether or not she and the murdered
woman were identical.
With this point established to the
satisfaction of the officers, a systemat
ic search lor tho men who havo been
connected with Mrs. Bouton in the
facts that have come to the knowledge
of the police will be instituted.
The dispatch published this morning
under a. Denver date line, stating that
Dr. Sherman Williams of that city had
made a positive identification of the
teeth of the-murdered woman as those
of Mrs, Bouton, he having been ac
quainted, with the teeth of Mrs. Bouton
by reason of having treated the wom
an for throat trouble last August, lost
much of its weight today when Coroner
Law declared that the teeth of tho
dead woman had never been out of his
office since the body was brought In
from Cutler Mountain, and that Dr.
Williams had never seen the teeth. The,
physician's identification Is based
wholly upon a newspaper diagram of
the jaiys of the dead woman, purport
ing to show the location of the gold
filled and crowned teeth, and "his iden
tification isv held by the officers here to
be worthless."
Movements of Mrs, Bouton.
A number of developments have been
brought to light by the detectives who are
investigating the circumstances of Mrs.
Bouton, of Syracuse, N. Y., In connection
with the Mount Cutler murder mystery.
It has been learned that Mrs. Bouton re
ceived the ?200 reported tohave been sent
her by her family in Syracuse, through a
telegraph company; that she was in the
city on October 2, and at various times up
to October 29; that between the two dates
she did not spend her time here, but vis
ited other cities in Colorado.
The most important development, per
haps, is that while in this city the latter
part of October she was accompanied by
a man five feet eight Inches In height,
dark complexioned. brown mustache,
heavy set, who wore a dark suit of
clothes, black overcoat and a derby hat.
and whom she Introduced as her husband.
She left the city on the evening of Octo
ber 29 In company with this man, and the
officers have reason to believe ho was a
traveling man for a cigar company of
From descriptions it would appear that
the man Mrs. Bouton identified In Denver
as her husband and the man she Intro
duced here are two different persons.
