HASTINGS , Aug. 22. ( Special Telegram to
The Iloe. ) St. Cecilia's Catholic church con
tained about 350 members tonight when the
parish nicotine , advertised for a few d ys
past , was called to order. After putting
Patrick Hlncs In the chair and choosing
Patrick Franoy secretary , John C. Stevens
announced the subject to como before the
meeting. He stated that Father J.
E. English , the priest of the
parish , had been ordered to leave Hastings
and report to David City on the 1st of the
month by Illsuop Itonacum. Ho claimed that
a priest could only be removed upcn charges
preferred and that no charges had been
inado that Father English might have a
chance to disprove. In the naino of the
parish ho thought that nn open Investigation
wna duo and it Ungllsh was found un
worthy of tilling the priestly
ofllco In Hasting * ho should bo sent to a
monastery and not to David City. This
seemed to be the souse of the meeting to a
dot and a number of speeches wcro made to
that effect. A committee on resolutions pre
sented a Berles of resolutions setting out
Father English's life In Hastings for the
last six years ; how ho had won the love and
respect of Catholics and Protestants ; how
ha had Increased the value of the church
property fully $15,000 , and detailing the man-
no r In which ho Incurred the enmity of the
bishop of the diocese , A speedy and full
trial of the charges. If any existed , was de
manded as a right of the priest and his
congregation. A petition to Mgr. Satollt war
also drawn up and signed by all present.
Messrs. J-C. HlcVcns and Tom Dronnan were
appointed delegates to present the memorial
nnd resolutions to Satolll and funds for their
transportation Immediately raised. The dis
satisfied members were not present and the
sentiment of the parish as manifested was
liu-ntt I.viiillug I'P ' to the I to 1110 vn I of
rather Kim-Hull.
The removal of Father English from
Hastings Is generally regarded as a part of
the plan of punishment tobo meted out to
the priests who preferred charges of mis
conduct and maladministration against
Dlshop Donacum. The charges against the
bishop , It will bo remembered , covered a
wldo range , culling In question not only
the spiritual character of tbo accused , but
also his honesty and his morals. Few of
tin signers of the Indictment had personal
grievances to air. Most of them were , llko
Father Knglldh , reluctantly forced to take
Hides against the bishop In the Interest of
religion nnd the preservation of tha church
In the diocese. A trial of the bishop on
the charges was promised by Mgr. Satolll ,
the papal delegate , during his visit to
Omaha lu June , 1S93 , and ho expressed tbo
opinion , based on the evidence In his posses
sion , that the removal of Illshop Donacum
was the proper remedy. The trial then and
subsequently promised failed to materialize.
Instead an Investigation wai undertaken by
Archbishop Hcnnesay of Dubuque , last April.
With the exception of a committee of Lin
coln Catholics , the Investigation was limited
Btrlntly to partisans of the Indicted blihop.
Archbishop Hemtesay reported to the apos-
tollo delegate that the better class of the
laity and a majority of the priests of the sustained Illshop llonucum. During
tbo archbishop's visit to Lincoln a pnper
extolling the administration of Illshop Ilona
prujunted tn Ui4 irknUljc
for their signatures. Thrco of them re
fused to sign , and they assert positively
that a majority did not endorse the admin
istration of the bishop.
On the strength of the cx-parto Investiga
tion of Archbishop Honnessy and his conclu
sions , Mgr. Satolll Indicated In a letter to
the complaining priests a disposition to sus
tain the bishop and dismiss as frlvobus the
grave charges preferred against him. No
formal decision , however , has been rendered.
Prior to the favorable report of the arch
bishop , niehop Bonacum declared war on
the nominal head of the rebellion. Rev. M.
J. Corbett. After the report the war was
prosecuted with redoubled vigor , resulting In
ousting Father Corbett from the Palmyra
mission and setting him adrift. Father
English Is the second victim of episcopal
wrath , and Father Fitzgerald , secretary of
the complaining priests , Is believed to stand
next in line for punishment.
Father English Is a priest of fifteen years
standing. Ho came to the diocese of Omaha
In 1879 , and served a faithful and success
ful apprenticeship on the missions In the
Interior of the state. As a reward for his
zeal , the late Dlshop O'Connor promoted
him by making him pastor of the cathedral
In Omaha. While at St. Phllomena ho en
deared himself to young and old of the con
gregation and brought about a unity of ac
tion and organization such as the , cathedral
had not before experienced. On the division
of the diocese In 1SS7 , ho was assigned to
the Lincoln division. Illshop Donacum as
signed him to the Hastings mission , accom
panying the assignment with profuse
promises of permanency. Late In 1892 , when
reports affecting the administration of
Illsliop Uonncum wcro laid before the proper
authorities , Illshop Scannell of Omaha was
ordered hy Mgr. Satolll to Inquire Into their
truthfulness. By order of Bishop Scannell ,
acting under Instructions of the papal dele
gate , Father English procured certain testi
mony In his parish. For thus offending he
was Immediately singled out by Bishop
Donncmn and subjected to Indignities and
persistent csplonago which could not be
calmly borne. Emissaries were sent Into the
parish to provolto discord and divide the
congregation. But they were unsuccessful.
When Archbishop Hennessy visited the
parish , during his tour of Investigation , per
sistent drumming and tearful appeals resulted
In securing only four signatures to a paper
requesting the removal of Father English.
The order of removal to David City was
Issued some weeks ago. Upon Its receipt
Father English wrote to Mgr. Satolll , re
viewing the situation and requesting to be
heard In person at Washington. The dele
gate replied that Illshop Ilonacum could not
remove him except for grave causes , and
from documents In his possession ho Judged
that the order was made "for Just and most
grave offenses. " Wherefore , the order must
be obeyed.
The passing of sentence on ex-parto evi
dence and denying1 the accused priest a hear
ing or knowledge of his accusers or of the
accusations has aroused much Indignation In
Omaha , as well as In Hastings. It Is cer
tain a personal demand will bo made upon
the delegate , In a day or two , for a copy of
the charges , and It Is not Improbable , If a
copy U obtained , that the accusers will bo
required to substantiate them.
The row In the Lincoln dlocesu Is not set
tled by any means , nor Is It likely to bo
until it Is settled right. There ore sutllclent
rumors and substantial reports current to
warrant the prediction that an ecclesiastical
oxuloslon Is an early possibility.

The governor Is In receipt of a letter from
I. N. Leonard , living about seven miles
northwest of the city , in which he calls at
tention to a paper published In the state
horticultural report on tbo conservation of
moisture. Mr. Leonard states that he has
four acres of land treated In this way , and
Is ready to show at any time any place
on the plcco of ground within two Inches of
the surface soil as moist as It Is usually
found at Its best In April or May. Ho
advises that every man put himself to work
digging holes every rod square and filling
with top soil. In this way , ho says , ho has
demonstrated the fact that every acre of
land so treated has held back and stored
up every drop of moisture that fell upon
it , and will bring It back to the surface
when needed , by the power of capillary at
traction. He declares that his plan has
passed beyond the experimental stage and
is now an established ( act. A cordial In
vitation Is extended to the governor and his
staff , members of the legislature anci all
scientists who may desire to inspect the
land so treated to call and examine It.

the possibilities of which the ex-secretary
called the attention of congress when the
contract for the Ericsson's construction was
let. As a matter of fact , this breaking
was anticipated , owing to the unprcccdcnt-
edly low atags of water , and the boat left
Dubuque equipped with temporary propellers
bored through , so that little more than con
tact with the water was required to break
them. Had they yielded less rendlly the
boat's machinery would have been Jarred.
However , It worked perfectly , which gives
Lieutenant Usher hope that the forthcoming
trial on the Long Island course will prove
the Ericsson the speediest vessel afloat.
