The. dissenting member! of the Pint
&ethodUt" Episcopal . church. Who are
opposed. to,.changlng the scene of . the
religious activities from the Third and
Taylor street church to the Grace church
site at Twelfth and Taylor streets, will
assemble at the .Third street church at
10:30 o'clock this morning - for their
. regular service, in complete- disregard
' : of the action of the quarterly .confer
. ence, which decided to use Grace church
nereafter..v'':':ivv'' '--': l: -;-.?.,,;.:- s
"We expect to go to the' usual place
, at the usual Jime." said B. 1e Paget,
, leader of the dissenters or "radicals"
as they have termed themselves. nVWe
' liav arranged'no service whatever, for
It Is the duty of the church officials to
do so. but If there is no preacher there
1 to conduct services; there will be some
who will apeak to us," added Mr. Facet
In .the evening, 'Dr. J, W. McDougall
will preach. This service was arranged
for a technical compliance with the law.
The above declaration by Mr. Paget
followed a ; meeting held- In his office
yesterday noon, just after an unsuc-
cessful attempt had been made by the
. dissenters to have an Injunction Issued
by Judge Cleeton against the First M.
K. - church, Grace church; the member
1 of the conference and Rev. Benjamin
Young, prohibiting them, from holding
services at Grace church or from chang
ing .the scenes of religious activities
from the Third and Taylor streets site
to any other place in the city. ,
Dissolution Seems Only Bemedy,
A complete dissolution of the union
between Grace church and Taylor Street
, ehurch under the name of the First M.
K. church, that -was effected in, July,
lflJ, Is the only solution of the rup
' ture which has divided- the church
against Itself.- This is Indlcatted in the
complaint filed by the dissenters ., In
support of their application for an In
junction and in a statement maaeoy
;:.r fir. Paget yesterday. ? v v- '
- 'There Is a program " being ' put
' through that is entirely at (Variance
with the ' wishes and sentiments of a
large part or the membership, as was
evidenced :; by the fact that officers
of the church as an official board, re
fused by a vote of tS to 1 to submit
to the membership vote the matter of
the removal, of , the church activities
to Grace church. I am frank , to say
. that they were afraid to do so, know
ing - that the measure would be de
feated. We have exhausted every
remedy that is offered Id church pro.
ceedure, and as a last resort we bav
-'' . gone to the courts." -x:i;, '.r;
. . -. Kay Torm XTew Charon.
' In the event of the defeat of the
purpose of the radicals, there are two
situations that may possibly result
the withdrawal -from the.; mother
church of all the dissenters and their
. scattering ; either to other t faiths or j
their- union with -other Methodist i
churches of the city, or rthe. with
drawal of the dissenters and the or
ganisation of the body which will re
quest a new charter and will organise
. a ' new church. v:---'
- The latter plan Is already being seri
ously considered by .those in the ranks
of the radicals, who would avoid fur
ther difficulties and would end them
all m that manner. They are being op
posed by other member of the radical
faction, who declare they will not stand
idly by. and see the church properties
uiasiyivu- .. ... .
Mr. Paget in discussing the posslbil
' ities of ' a new church said: "The sit
uation la tremendously grave and un
doubtedly means the actual loss of a
' Methodist Episcopal cnurcn to rortiana
. and great number of members to local
Methodism unless the present official
' program is changed. Borne line of cleav-
n in " the consolidation lot the two
churches is inevitable and the only plan
not involving friction is the restoration
of - the two original, church organlsa
tlons." . :;:-, -
Why plan Zs Opposed,
"It is - our contention that we ; m w
have two adequate church auditoriums
sufficient ; for the. present needs, and
that is why we have opposed the build-
. lag of the new church, which seems to
be the seed of the trouble. The build
ing of such a church would mean the
loss and expenditure of nearly $200,000,
for an elegant structure the Grace
church, would have to be torn down
"We do not approve of appropriating all
. the accumulation of SO or 60 years to
aatisfy the ambitions of some members
of the church. '
The building question is not the
only ono ; that is causing trouble, how-
over; for the church people have not
forgotten that Rev. Benjamin Young re
cently refused to grant the petition of
a great number of churchmen the priv
ilege of a congregation meeting to
'choose trustees, althougn such proceed
ur is allowed by the church. Instead,
be fell back on an antiquated part of
the Incorporation articles filed years
ago. which provided that the pastor
name tne trustees.
1 Too Much Power Peered.
"An official board, once created is
' self-perpetuating and the congregation
ran appeal plead, threaten, cajolo and
legislate until kingdom come, and the
board does not have to pay the slight
est bit. of attention. That is why w
nave taaen tne matter into the courts,
there to determine wnether or Jiot we
. are to be ruled without regard to our
visiles, me pastor once selected can
name for his board trustees that will
be entirely of his mind, and then we
are out' of it entirely."
'. Dr. J. W. McDougall, superintendent
or tne f oniana district, who Is practic
ally in charge here, In the absence of
Bishop R. J. Cooke, said yesterday, "I
recognise but one church the First M.
K. church and am taking no part in
any fight that might be under way. I
have not been appealed to and have
taken no fide. In preaching at the Tay
. lor street church tomorrow evening, I
am fulfilling the edict of the confer
ence, which is possessed of the Informa
tion that services must be held at that
church, According to law. I am recog

Mrs, Lorillard Spencer of New
York and ' Newport to Fi
nance and Direct Plan,
(By the International News Serrlca.)
New .York, N. Y Oct. 18.-The civili
sation of the savage Moros in the Phil
ippines Is the goal aimed at by Mrs.
Lorillard Spencer, society leader, of this
city and Newport and Miss Virginia C.
Young, a deaconness In the Protestant
Episcopal church. Accompanied by a
physician, . a trained nurse and a teach
er of manual' training, they purpose set
tling on the island of Jolo, the domain
of the Moros, .The enterprise Is one-of
civilization. A few months ago Mrs,
Spencer and Miss Young visited Jolo
on a tour of the east. They were
shocked at the situation there. Neither
felt that too much praise could, be
given to the 'government officials Yor
the work they are accomplishing.
A few days before they reached Jolo
a battle had been fought between Atner
lean troops under General Pershing and
the natives in which a number or Amer
leans were killed and hundreds of Moros
were slain. To the protest of the horri
fled visitors General Pershing could
only respond that, greatly as it was to
be regretted, the force of arms was the
only thing which the Moros respected.
. His suggestion that some one should
undertake the introduction of - other
civilising Influences among ' the na
tives set both Mrs. Spencer and Miss
Young to thlnkng and after a confer
ence with Bishop' Brent they decided
upon their plan of civilization.
They expect to spend a year on the
island . of Jolo ' and ' estamisn mere,
under the protection of General Per
shin and his troops, a - center lrfto
which they will - gradually draw the
natives. . ' . .
Weaving, carpentry, agriculture and
other industries wll be taught them.
Should it become evident within a yeat
that the project is hopeless. It Will be
abandoned. . .
The Drolect of the two women d I
vlded'interest with' other developments
today at the general convention of the
Episcopal church; . Of the latter, one
of the most Important was the defeat
of the proposed " canon to establish a
court of appeals for final determina
tion of heresy charges.

A demurrer to the suit of , Frank C.
Stettler to enjoin the Industrial Wel
fare commission from putting into ef
fect its regulations of wages and work
ing hours for women will probably be
Interposed ; tomorrow ' by .District , At

This mode of procedure -was decided
upon yesterday at a conference attend
ed by Attorney General Crawford, Dls
triot Attorney Evans, 'Attorney Dan J,
Malarkey, special council for the wel
fare commission, Rev. -Edwin Y, O'Hars,
Amadee M, Smith and Miss Caroline
Gleason, of the commission, and Deputy
District Attorney Arthur A. Murphy. '
Tke demurrer will be based on the
contention that the complaint ln the
suit does not show' that the' order Is
an unreasonable exercise of police pow
ers, that It does not show " that , tite
order Is ' not necessary to protect the
health and general welfare of the wom
en of the state, that' the business of
the plaintiff would be confiscated or
in any manner injured by .the enforce
ment of the . order, ; that the legislature
delegated legislative power in passing
the act that the plaintiff is being de
prived of property or , liberty - without
due process of law,; or is denied
the - equal . protection . of - the . law,
that his property is being. taken with
out Just or any compensation, or that
he Is being denied the right .to have the
reasonableness of ' the order ' Judicially
reviewed or determined. '
The suit Is before Circuit Judge Clee
ton, who has stated that in view of the
fact that the action affects public pol
icy and is of the utmost Importance to
the state he will put aside all other
business to hear it at once, that it may
go to the supreme court without delay.
Should, the demurrer be filed tomorrow
it is probable that the supreme court
will have it brought up for considera

ably be appealed whichever way it is
