the Holy Catholic Church, and he recog
,- abed the Roman Church, though erring,
and the. Oriental Church as branches of the
Church: . He hoped to'see ir union of the
branches. We could not:expect. to see the
Homan Church or the' Oriental ' Church to
come all the way to the Protestant Episco
pal Church of America.

piece of property that is now claimed by
the West Penna. R. It., we submit an ordi
nonce to authorize the payment to the con
tractors the amount he is over-charged out
