PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 16. A matter that
may become a celebrated case In the Pro
testant Episcopal church In America became
public today when announcement was made
that Bishop John Scarborough, of the tilj-
cese of New Jersey, had refused to ap
prove the call to a church within his Juris
diction of a clergyman married to a woman
who had been granted a divorce from her
first husband also an Episcopal clergyman,
The case Is that of the Rev. George C,
Kettell, formerly assistant rector of Christ
church, Baltimore. His wife was originally
Miss Bessie Bronghton of Pocomohe City,
Md. She married Rev. Clarence Frankel In
February, 1900; and six months later they
move to Nebraska, where her husband
was a missionary.
Released In Soath Dakota.
Later she secured a divorce in South Da
kota on the grounds of nonsupport. un
faithfulness and cruel-. She then came
back to Pocomoke City, became acquainted
with Rev. Mr. Kettell and the couple were
married on July 29. last, by Rev. Charles
A. Hansel, vicar of Grace Church chapel,
Haltimore. Shortly after this Mr. Kettell
resigned from Christ church.
Christ church at Palmyra, N. Y., about
ten miles from Philadelphia, offered the
rectorship of that church to the young
rector on the recommendation of Bishop
Scarborough before he was married. He
accepted after Informing the directory of
the church that he had married a divorced
woman, but when he went to Trenton, N.
J., to get the approval of the Bishop, which
is necessary, when a clergyman of the
church goes from one diocese to another,
he was refuses, ine aissapoinieu recior
notified the vestrymen at Palmyra, vacated
the pulpit and accepted a position as In
structor in the Episcopal academy In this
city pending the settlement of the contro
The parishioners of Christ church took up
the matter and appealed to the bishop to
reconsider his decision, but this he would
not do. Meetings were held at the church
and the parishioners finally became di
vided, a majority of them, it la said, de
ciding to take the view of Bishop Scarbor
ough. Some of the more ardent supporters
of the Rev. Mr. Kettell want to take the
matter to the civil courts, and it is said
this probably will be done.

of missions. According to the reports of

of the forces employed. There were 600,000
women in the church, sho declared, but
not one la fifteen give a helping hand In

took their part they would employ In our

Master Horseshoers Desire to Rata
.250,000 to Protect Members
BT. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 18. Provision was
mad at the concluding session of the
Master Horseshoers' convention for a con
tingent fund to oppose strikes. At present
there Is $26,000 available for this purpose,
but there has been no law specifically
stating that the fund should be so used.
A Bpeclal assessment will be made on the
members of the association during th next
three months until the fund amounts to
$75,000 and like assessments will bs ordered
until the fund reaches $250,000.
It was decided to send a representative
to the National Employers' association,
which holds Its annual convention in Chi
cago October 29 and 30, to Investigate the
invitation of that organisation to affiliate
with it. The right to make use of the
national atamp which the masters place
on each shoe was extended to corporations
doing their own horseshoeing.
The question of establishing a oollege of
horseshoeing was referred to a special
committee, which will Investigate the pro
posals of Battle Creek, and If the matter
Is practicable, the college will be founded
by the association. Detroit was selected
as ths convention city for next year. Ths
business of the convention concluded wltb
the election of officers as follows:
President, L. J. Fagan of New York; sec
retary, C. J. McGtnnes of Brooklyn; treas
urer, F. J. Perry of Fort Wayne.

New York Court Holds that th Tests
Before Services Ar Per.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Oct. 18.-A most
sweeping ruling made by an American
court concerning a matter of Roman
Cathollo belief since it wss held In this
state years ago that a priest cannot be
compelled to testify to the secrets of the
confessional, was handed down today by
Surrogate George A. Benton.
Th casa Is that of John 8. Keenan, ad
ministrator of th estate of Rev. James
P. Klernan. Keenan put in a claim for $Gu0
willed to Father Klernan for masses by
Daniel Kane. Mr. Kane died in 1897 and
Father Klernan May 13, 1900.
Judge Benton rays: "It Is not natural
to suppose that -he testator making a
bequest for such a purpose would so dis
trust his legatee as to Insist that the ser
vice should be performed before tli money
The substance la that ths performance
of th masses by th priest in a case is
a duty laid upon th conscience of the
clergyman alona and that the legacy vests
in th priest and passes to bis legal repre
sentative who is In a position to claim its
The case has no exact paralell in ths
history of United States courts.
