Nebraska Episcopal Bishop Returns
$4,800 to Church.
Omaha , Neb. , May 21. After drawIng -
Ing from the Episcopal diocese a salary
ary of ? COO dollars a year for nearly :
eight years nt. Rev. Dr. George WorthIngton -
Ington , bishop of Nebraska , Just ap
pointed to the bishopric of the Amer
ican churches of Europe , has announc
ed that ho will return to the church
the money thus paid him , amounting
in all to about $4,800.
Tho. announcement came as a sur
prise to the members of the diocese
when It was read to the annual coun
cil which Is being held at Trinity ca-j
Ellil ; yi-ars ago Bishop Worthington -
ton asked that there bo appointed a
coadjutor bishop of the Nebraska dltt-
cesi1 , to have direct charge of the
affairs of the church , because of his
falling health. Rev. A. L. Williams
was elected to the place and has been
the netlvo head of the church In Ne
braska since that time.
Bishop Worthlngton reserved $000
a year from the salary paid the bish
op , and that amount has boon paid
to him slnco that lime , although ho
has lived In Now York and has In no
manner identified himself with the
affairs of the diocese except aa ox-
olliclo bishop. Ho has drawn a salary
of $000 a year , however , and this has
brought a storm of protest from many
prominent clergymen not only in Ne
braska , but throughout the country.
This opposition has been lead by Rev.
T. J. Mackay , rector of All Saints'
church , of Omaha , who has caused the
publication of considerable criticism
in the Episcopal Journal and other
periodicals. Dr. Mackay Insisted that
If ho was unable to perform the duties
of bishop he should relinquish the tl <
tlo and resign his position as head of
an Episcopalian church diocese. The
matter has been brought to the attentl
church , and in some quarters it was
stated that body would take action.
Bishop Worthlngton has given as
little attention to the criticism of his
action as possible and has declined to
dignify the charges made against him
until recently. He made the state
ment some time ago that the Nebras
lea altitude would not permit him to
reside In this state , but that ho had
been elected bishop for life and was
bound iiiyler the canons of the churcl
to accept and fulfill the mission. No' '
being able to actively perform the
work , ho believed It to be properl >
within his province to request the ad
pointment of a coadjutor to assume
these duties.
Rev. Dr. Williams , who now prac
tlcally becomes bishop of the diocese
explains that Bishop Worthlngton has
never had any Intention of retaining
the money paid him as salary. He
declared tonight that Bishop Worth
lugton had made a reservation of $ CO
a year from the salary paid the coad
jutor in accordance with the canons
of the church , which , Dr. Williams
says , lie was fully empowered to do.
Tills custom Is recognized as perfect
ly proper by the canons of the church ,
he says , and Bishop Worthlngton sim
ply carried out a precedent set long
The letter from Bishop Worthing-
ton was addressed to the secretary of
the diocese , Dr. W. II. Moor , and cre
ated a sensation when it was read at
the conference. Bishop Williams did
not know such a communication had
been received , although he has under
stood It was the Intention of the bishop -
op to return the money to the dioceao.
"It was a handsome thing for Bish
op Worthlngton to do on the eve of
ills appointment to the European mis
sion , " said the coadjutor bishop. sl
have known all along that It was his
Intention , but had not anticipated he
would do so at this time. The money
will be turned into the diocesan fund. "
