The letter of the Penn Avenue Bap

Mr. Partridge, and contained reference
to the cancellation of the church mort
gage. It announced that $2,000 had
been obtained by the Liadles' Social

and $3,000 at the church anniversary.
The letter closed with this touching
"We close the association year In the
midst of deep sorrow at parting with
our pus tor, who has been with us over
five years. These years have been full
of earnest preaching of the Gospel of
Christ and faithful pastoral work
among the church members, and untir
ing zeal for lost fouIs in the communi
ty. We thank our Heavenly Father for
his sermons and talks that have made
the Bible sweeter to so many, for the
words of encouragemenit to workers;
the prayers at the bedside of the sick,
and all his ministration so sincerely
and faithfully given to all. And we
would say: 'God Mess him,' In his new
and Important field of lalbor, and make
tolm as useful there as he has been here,
where he will be remembered as one of
the most energetic and persevering la
borers in the Master's vineyard, with
a olean record In every particular, be
ing consistent In life, honest and fair
In dealing, liberal and broad in views,
evangelical in spirit, and practical in
work. He will be missed In the city as
well as In the church, for he was uni
versally respected as a Christian gen
tleman." President Is Chosen.
Tlurre was a. departure from pant
custom 'In electing - a president, In
previous years the pastor oldest In ser
vice has been chosen, ibut yesterday
Revs. Warren O. (Partridge, H. H. Har
ris, W. J. Ford, D. C. Hughes, A. H.
Browe. W. G Watklns, A B iDouglas
and M J. Waitklns were nominated,
but no choice was made by two frallots.
Then a motion prevailed, although
there was some objection, tlhalt the vot
ing be restricted tv the tlhree highest,
which resulted In twenty-nine votes
for Mr. Partridge, eighteen for Mr.
Harris and eight for Mr. Ford. iMr.
Partridge Hook the chair and an ad
journment was made until afternoon.
The afternoon session opened with
a prayer service led by Kev. t. J.
Williams. Jteports were made by the

ing of tho Women's Missionary socle
ties. The evening was designated Mhe
young people's rally," and opened at 7
o'clock with devotional services, fol
lowed by a business meeting.
Dr. Dixon's Address.
The main feature of the evening,
however, was Dr. Dixon's address. His
fame and repute as an orator had evi
dently preceded him, for the delegates,
church members and others filled tho
auditorium. Dr. Dixon's subject was
Going Into All the World to Preach
the Gospel." His peculiar talents as a
forceful speaker shone 'forth last night
and his hearers were held spellbound.
He went at the meat of his Bubjer.t,
cast superfluities aside, and spoke with
a vigor and emphasis and called things
by their right names after a fashion
which left no doubt of the meaning In
tended. Dr. Dixon urged an Increase of open
air preaching and a reaching out for
the unconverted. Stereotyped sermon
ising to chwehcongregat Ions he likened
to squeezing milk, out of dried herring.
His arguments urged the need of going
among he masses and with Christian
ity for ammunition forcing the uncon
verted to surrender. Death, he sa'id,
should, not be preached, but birth and
regeneration should be taught.

consecration service led by Dr. Dixon.

Coasaltors of the Scraitoa Diocese
Will Meet in This City Today.
ARB TO SELECT THREE NAMES
That Is Step Preliminary to the Appoint
eat of n Coadjutor to Bishop
O'Uera for the Dlooose of
Today at the episcopal residence, on
Wyoming avenue, the twelve Catholic
priests known as the consultors of the
Seranton diocese will meet and, select
three names to recommend to Pope
Leo Xl'U for the selection of a coadju
tor to assist Rt. Rev. Bishop o'lilara in
the administration of affairs In this
diocese. According to the formula that
U necessary In the appointment of a
coadjutor It is not possible that one
will tie named for about two months.
Bishop o'llura is approaching bis
eightieth year, und the arduous duties
of his exalted olllce are at times a se
vere and dangerous strain on a consti
tution naturally rugged, but now be
ginning to feel the weight of years.
. Attacks of Illness within the past
two years have ulso somewhat weak
ened his system and led him to feel
that an assistant Is necessary to light
en the duties placed upon him that the
Interests of the churches under his
charge may not suffer.
Most Prohuhlc Coadjutor.
Very Rev. John Flnnen, pastor of St.
John's parish of Pittston, who Is vicar
general of the diocese. Is regarded us
the one upon whom the worthy honor
will fall. The coadjutor has the full
powers of a bishop, but is subservient
to the bishop.
The holy father appoints the coadju
tor)'. Six names will be presented to
the sovereign pontiff, three by Arch
bishop Patrick John Ryan, of Philadel
phia, and three by the twelve consul
tors of this diocese. The archbishop is
not guided nor Induced by any advice
or suggestion In the nomination of
three men; the same rule holds good In
regard to the three selected by the
consultors. They meet together and
unanimously agree on three to send.
The six names are sent to Rome and
considered by the pope.
Who the Consultors Are.
It Is a rule among the Catholic
clergy that when the pastor of a parish
has cleared all the church property
from dubt, he becomes an immoveable
rector, that means, he cannot be
changed from the charge of that par
ish during his life. The twelve In the
Seranton diocese are: Rev. N. J. Mc
Manus, of Providence; Rev. John
Loughran, of Mlnooka; Rev. John J.
Doherty, of Honcsdalp; Rev. Gerald
MoMurray, of Dunmore; Rev. P. F.
Broderlck, of Susquehanna; Rev.
Charles Kelley, of Towanda; Rev. R.
A. McAmdrew, of Wllkes-Barre; Rev.
Peter Nagle, of Wllkes-Barre; Rev.
Thomas Garvey, of Williamsport; Rev.
Father Keeper, of 'Williamsport; Rev.
John Comlskey, of Hazleton, and Very
