certified regularity of election and
Dr. Lloyd formally accepted.
July 151 Dr. Lloyd advises leading
pastors of the diocese of Oregon that
letter has been mailed cancelling acceptance.
Rev. . Frederic E. J. Lloyd, recer jy
elected bishop coadjutor of the diocese
of Oregon, after having visited Portland,
accompanied by Mrs. Lloyd, formally
duns' a letter of acceptance of the place
to which he had been chosen, and the
highest within the gift of the Protestant
Episcopal Church of the state, has wired
to -Portland pastors the information that
a letter is on the way canceling his
acceptance. Dr. George B. Van Waters,
chairman of the standing committee of
the diocese, received a telegram Monday,
the exact language of which has not been
made public because the message was
of a private character, but Its purport
Is known to be as above stated. Tes
terday another pastor received a second
message conveying the same Information
and the news that another assistant for
the aged Right Rev. B. WIsar Morris.
Bishop of Oregon, will have to be elected
by a future convention soon gained cir
culation among leading members of the
Dr. Van Waters stated, in response to
inquiry of The Oregonlan. that he did
not feel at liberty to make any state
ment until the letter Is received, as the
matter is in statu quo.
There Is a movement among leading
members to allow the selection of a
bishop coadjutor to wait until assembling
of the next annual convention, though
it is possible a special session will be
sailed for the purpose.
July 2 five rectors of churches In the
Jlocese signed a protest against con
Jrmatlon of the bishop coadjutor-elect
. an grounds that his election had been
nade without a proper understanding of
als position in the church and alleging
:hat he Is a ritualist, while the large ma
lorlty of members of the church In Ore
ton are low churchmen.
Protest Against election.
The following day a counter protest
was made public, bearing signatures of
l majority of those who composed the
:onvention at which he was elected. In
'hlch the allegations of the first pro
rest were denied most emphatically. At
.he same time Bishop B. "Wister Morris
:crtifled to the regularity of the election
tnd Dr. Lloyd formally accepted the
jlace. He was cordially welcomed to
Oregon at a reception tendered In his
lonor at the residence of the bishop and
as greeted by clergy and laity in a
nanner that left no reason to doubt
.hat in the new work he would have
united support and assistance. Imme
liately thereafter the protestors with
Irew their appeal to the standing com
nlttces to withhold confirmation and the
ncldent was thought to have been closed,
K'lth no doubt that the diocese would
save the labors of a bishop coadjutor
,o reliovo Bishop Morris of the arduous
lutles-Incumbent upon him.
Would Accept at Sacrifice.
It has been known generally among
cading churchmen that Dr. Lloyd would
tccept the bishop coadjutorshlp of the
llocese at considerable personal sacrl

nost clergymen of the Episcopal Church
n this country, -is to whether or not
Dr. Lloyd Ls a ritualist or a low church
nan, those who sustained his election
lid not say In meeting the protest against
lis choice. They deemed It a question
lot worthy of consideration, further than
o express their confidence in the Chris
tianity, ability and worth of the bishop

ABERDEEN. Wash.. July 19. (Special.)
-At the last meeting of the County Com
aissloners. County Treasurer Taylor was
nstructed to accept from several large
andowners In the county.SO per cent of
ho face value of their taxes In the town
f Westport fronting on the Pacific
Vv8. In ese instance & tax of J15E2
had Increased to 5236 by penalty and ln-1
terest and a compromise was suggested
by the commissioner at (776. Rebates on
taxes have been allowed in the past, but
the bondholders at Westport school dis
trict protest against the proposed reduc
tion or rebate in taxes and declare their
intention If a settlement Is made accord
ing to the Instructions of the commis
sioners, they will begin suit against the
County Treasurer to compel him to pay
the balance out of his own pocket.
The Westport school district was formed
out of the Ocosta district and had to as
sume Jts share of the old district debt.
More obligations were contracted to build
a fine schoolhouse during the boom days.
Since thett property has greatly depre
dated on account of the collapse o real
estate values and so small an amount of
school tax has been paid that no .inter
est on the bonds has been permissible
for flx-e years. The bonds amount to
58003. The tax levy in Westport in 1S33
was 66 mills and in 1M 5S& mills, the
highest In the county. The County Treas
urer has appealed to the County Attor
ney for an opinion In the case.

sion, took out their divisions and put' In
a switching charge of 53.50 por car.
