There was no little surprise that
temporary jurisdiction over eastern
Oregon was given to a Washington
bishop instead of to Bishop Walter
T. Sumner of the diocese of Oregon.
Presiding Bishop Tuttle, in his an
nouncement, made reference to sug
gestions that the missionary district
of eastern Oregon be. merged with
the diocese of Oregon. There were
hints about convention halls that

and see the fertility of the soil.' its
great timber resources and the
prosperity of the people and you
will see what a great future this
country has. We do not want to go
back. Eastern Oregon should have
a bishop of its -own."
Following his statement the pre
siding bishop presented a resolution
to the effect that the convention

such action arrives. This was re

The utterances which have placed
the retired bishop in such great dia

contained largely in volumes he has
published. In a book entitled "Com

to have promulgated beliefs which
are radically antagonistic to church
doctrines and ordinary religious
teachings. A resolution from his

the clergyman held, and civilization
which has been ages in the build

because public justice has given
way to private revenge and a rever

The ministry and church are the
two factors which can bring th
people to a realization of their
duties toward society, Dr. Wilmer
contended, in asking for a public
expression of the church's attitudo
on the question. The resolution was
referred to the committee on social
service for consideration.
Civilization Being Torn Away.
"The man who commits a crime

This, and a-reaolutlon against the
use of gambling devices at church
fairs and entertainments, were the
features of the morning session of
the lower house of the convention.
The afternoon was given over to the
discussion of prayer-book revision,
and out of the mass of deep theolog
ical alignment one little clash took
place, which caused the learned doc
tors and dignified laymen to break
out in laughter. The baptismal
service was taken up, and a pro
posal to substitute other phrases for
the words, "Oh, merciful God, grant
that the old Adam in this child may
be buried," brought an explanation
from Dr. C. Xi. Slattery, secretary of
the prayer-book revision committee.

before order was restored.
The house opened its session yes

of the right of suffrage for suf

the advice of J. Randolph Anderson,
parliamentarian of the house, a way
was shown for clearing up the dffi
culties that confronted a reconsid
eration of the matter. After this
point was cleared, the house decided
that. It did not want to reopen the
subject and the matter of suffragan
bishops again went on the table.

women and on constitution and
