New Head of Eastern Oregon Dis
trict Establishes Parish in
BA4CER, Or.. Dec. 9. (Special.)
Eastern Oregon holds little of th
romantic for the Right Rev. William
Procter Remington, newly conse
crated bishop of the Episcopal mis
sionary district of eastern Oregon
and Mrs. Remington, for they are
coming from a country almost iden- ,
tical, geographically, with the in
land empire. Pertinent .to Rapid
City, S. D., the , center of Bishop
Remington's activities for the past
four years, are its gold mines, its
lumbering interests, its cattle rais
ing and its vast reaches of barren
In his first - interview in Baker,
just a day before Thanksgiving and
just before he left for the middle
west states, he pointed out almost
instantly that he quickly "would be
at home" in eastern Oregon, insofar
as the industries connected with its
topography are concerned.
Athletic Record Bold.
Bishop and Mrs. Remington are
expected to arrive in Baker to make
their home within the next few
days. Tomorrow evening- he is ex
pected to make the final address at
the older .boys' conference in La
The Rev. Mr. Remington grad
uated from the University of Penn
sylvania in 1900. Because of his
record established in the university
and on the American Olympic team
in the hurdles and jumps, he is often
referred to as the "athletic bishop."
Bishop Remington is a missionary
bishop, and he enters that type of
work in eastern Oregon. His first
missionary experience came whilo
he was in the university.
"A number of students at ' the
university, including myself, be
came interested in the making of
better things in a large slum dis
trict of Philadelphia, referred to
even now ls the 'Devil's Pocket,' "
Bishop Remington declared before
he left Baker for the east. "We
established the first Christian set
tlement in this poverished section.
It was as tough as the name indi
cates. There were other Olympic
athletes in this group, which, later
increased to &50 students. Among
these was Joe McCracken, whose
event was the shotput and who now
is head of St. John's school, depart
ment of medicine, in China. Nov?
'Devil's Pocket possesses a $350,
000 parish and is supported largely
yet by University " of Pennsylvania
Parish Established In Slums.
After hiis graduation, Rev. Mr.
Remington taught school in Phila
delphia Delancy's school. Later
he entered the Virginia seminary
for further theological work. It is
from this seminary that many no
table Episcopal clergy graduated.
Among thes-e are Bishop Potter of
Pennsylvania and Bishop Phillip
Brooks of Minnesota. He then en
tered the missionary work in the
church, becoming assistant to Dr.
'Floyd Thompson of the Trinity
church, Philadelphia. A year later
he was back working in the slums
and established the chapel parish of
the Holy Apostles not far from the
"Devil's Pocket." Then he was
named vicar of the chapel of the
Bishop Thomas of Wyoming was
In 1911 Dr, Remington was called
to be rector of St. Paul's church of
Minneapolis. This church has pro
duced four bishops, according to
Rev. Mr. Remington. In 1916 he was
named suffragan, or assistant bishop
of South Dakota, which post he held
until his appointment at the Port
land triennial convention to succeed
Bishop Paddock in eastern Oregon.
Bishop Serves Overseas.
He was consecrated bishop- of
South Dakota in his uniform and left
the next day to join his division as
a chaplain. He served overseas in
In 1905 his marriage to Miss Flor
ence Allen took place at Burlands,
Vt. Mrs. Remington is a versatile
woman. She is a talented musician
and takes an active role in the musi
cal affairs of the church in whicfc
her husband officiates. Mrs. Rem
ington also is active in affairs out
side the church itself. She has
taken prominent roles in women's
civic club work and in the Y. W. C.
A. She was elected president of the
Women Workers of South Dakota,
an Episoopal organization, and dur
ing the war was musical hostess at
Camp Devens.-Mass., with the Y. W.
C. A. She is 44 years old, as is the
Baker Gets I4ve Wire."
In the Right Rev. Mr. Remington
Baker has a "live wire." All those
who have met the bishop are-convinced
Before he left for the east two
weeks ago Bishop Remington ex
plained what he hopes will be his
relation as the highest official of
the church in this district, to the
community in general. Also he am
plified somewhat his statement given
out Monday why he has chosen
Baker for the bishopric in prefer
ence to other eastern Oregon cities.
Competing with Baker was Pendle
ton, La Grande, Hood River and The
V a lies.
An offer of $15.CM0 for an official
residence was tendered the bishop
at his consecration in Pendleton,
November 1 9, provided he chose
Baker for his home. At present
Bishop Remington said no definite
plans had been laid for new church
buildings in Baker. When he an
nounced his intention to stay in
Baker, he said it would be for a
year at least, as he felt this com
munity needed him most.
Home Rented for Year.
On Thanksgiving he was the guest
of Right Rev. Mr. Tourett, bishop
of Idaho, at Boise. On December
$ he participated in the consecration
of Rev. W. Blair Roberts as suffra
gan of South Dakota at Sidux Falls,
the post formerly held by himself.
v hen he left Baker he said he
planned to return with Mrs. Rem
ington about December 10. A home
in Baker has been rented for the
bishop for a year. Shortly after the
first of the year the bishop plans to
return east to select possibly ten
rectors for parishes in the eastern
But one factor-was seriously con
sidered when he chose Baker as his
temporary home. Bishop Remington
declared in his interview before he
left for the east. Geographically,
Baker at present is the logical cen
ter of his activities. Generally the
section adjacent to Baker is with-
out any church leader, while com
munities to the north are at pres
ent more fortunate, he pointed out
The situation in Baker in the mis
sionary field and points contiguous
demands his attention first.
Orcgonians Are Praised.
Bishop Remington has found in
his short stay among them that all
Oregonians are alike and that peo
ple of culture are more plentiful
than in some other communities of
the United States.
Bishop Remington believes the
church should be interested in every
activity of the individual. His atti
tude is that the church leader should
have as many activities. Thus, he
likes to take a part in every com
munity function that is upbuilding.

He says Mrs. Remington is just as
active in civic welfare. Bishop Rem
ington would be a friend of every
church denomination and likes com
munity unity. He deplores strife
in a community. He declares he has
seen too much war already, while
serving as chaplain with the Amer
ican forces in France.
. In other words, it is not amiss
that Bishop Remington should be
found mingling in the affairs of the
American Legion post in the city in
which he resides. He admitted, mod
estly, that at one time not so dis
tant he was groomed by his friends
to be a candidate for the post of

Husband Confident Mabel Xich
ols, Held for Shooting Greer,
Will Be" Freed by Jury.
ELLENSBURG, Wash., Dec. 9.
(Special.) Confidence that his wife
will be set free by the grand Jury
is expressed by Ike A. Nichols, j
Northern Pacific brakeman, whose I
wife, Mabel Nichols, is lield at
Klamath- Falls, Or., for' the shoot- 1
ing last Saturday of Robert Greer,
4a. also of Ellensburg. Nichols'
wife, who is 23, and Greer left
Ellensburg together on October 27. I
They went directly to Bend, Or,, and j
took up. residence in a cabin in the :
mountains, 50 miles south of Bend, j
Mrs. Nichols said. Kittitas county j
authorities believed the couple had j
headed for British Columbia and
telegraphed to every logical point, jfi
Greer and Mrs. Nichols, however, j
registered at Bend as Mr. and Mrs. i :
Mrs. Nichols will base her de- I
fense, her husband stated, on the ;
purported faGts that Greer held the ;
woman a virtual prisoner, never j
permitting her to get farther than I
20 feet away, and threatening her I
with instant death should she try to 1 i
leave him or to communicate with
her husband in Ellensburg.' Greer. j
who, according to Mrs. Nichols I
manufactured whisky on a large j
scale, forced her to accompany, him 1 j
on "selling trips." f i
Finally the situation grew un-i ;
bearable, she is said to have de- i
clared, and when Greer threatened j
to force her to lead an immoral life 1 i
to meet a note of $700 due shortly I
she says she picked up Greer's auto- j
matic pistol and shot him. j
Mrs. Nichols further declares that I j
she was forced to leave Ellensburg j
with Greer. This statement is cor- ;
roborated to some extent by a note j
found in the kitchen stove at the j
Nichols home here after she disap- i
peared, saying "I am going, not be- I i
cause I want to, but at the point of j
a gun." Another note gave Nichols 1 1
instructions as to the care of their li
5-year-old girl. j
"I certainly intend to Hake Mabel I !
back and give her another chance," I !
Nichols declared here today. "I be
lieve she has learned a lesson."
