'. n Omaha In May, 1903. This being men
4oned to the bishops by Presiding Elder
:. W. Jennings, there was a slight lmlnua
, Ion that It might be possible to procure
ome of the committee meetings in the

a to an opportunity, and being pretty

WELCOME THEIR PASTOR HOME
Parishioners of Father Judge Give
Bins Cardial Reception on
Father Judge of the Sacred Heart church
was, outwitted early Thursday morning in
an attempt to make his return from Ire
land without any demonstration. A num
ber of his parishioners surprised him with
a very pleasing reception.
Rev. Father McNleve. 8. J., acting dur
ing the absence of Father Judge, offered
a few words of welcome, after which a
musical and literary program waa ren
dered. Jamea Connors presented the re
turning father a handsome chair, which
was received very graciously.
Father Judge eeea better daya In store
for Ireland and stated that King Edward
is Ingratiating himself in a substantial
manner with the Irish people. He also
suggested the possibility of many Irish
Americans returning to their native soli
and making Investments there.
Participating in the program were D. J.
Hurley, Misses Frances and Marie Dennl
son, Madeline O'Connor and Ines Gentle
man. THINKS GRANT MUST SUE CITY
Mayor Moo res Expresses View that
I'se of Pavlag Plant Was to
"As I view the matter now It looks to me
aa though the Nebraska Bltullthlo company
will have to go into the courts if it col
lects the bill of SW for use of 11 asphalt
plant," said Mayor Moorea.
The mayor takea the same view of this
bill aa City Engineer Rosewater that It la
an obligation that was not bargained for
and which the city did not contract.
"It waa my understanding." said the
mayor, "that when we arranged with Mr.
Grant for repairs to the pavementa he waa
to give the use of the plant free. On this
point the expression, as I remember It, was
definite. I do not aee how the city can
sanction the payment of the bill."
, Comptroller Lobeck, one of the members
of the Board of Publlo Works who voted to
allow the amount, declares that there was
no agreement that the use of the plant
should be gratuitous. He holds that such
service is necessarily worth remuneration
and should be recompensed.
Owing to the fact that the city officials
had to proceed In a somewhat Irregular
manner to get any repairs whatsver, to
contract was drawn up or signed, save a
stipulation aa te the price of the asphalt.

OF THREE CHURCHES
Scheme to Combine United Brethren, Con
- gregatioial sad Methodist-Protestant
TO BE DISCUSSED NEXT WEEK AT GENEVA
Rev. Robert Tost of Omaha Announces
the Movement and Points Oat
Advantages ta Be
A movement of wide Interest has been an
nounced by Rev. Robert Yost, pastor of 8t
Mary's Avenue Congregational church.
It looks to the amalgamation of the United
Brethren, Congregational and Methodut
Protestant churches In the United States.
The matter haa been discussed at three
national sessions of the leading ministers
of these three churchea. One aesslon wtui
held at Washington. D. C, and two at
PittBburg. The affiliation of these three
churchea will unite over 1.000,000 people.
The polity of the three churchea does not
vary greatly in any of the essentials to
orthodoxy nor In the administrative fea
tures of the churches affected. The United
Brethren church la under the control, in
directly, of its bishops, who have direct
supervision over presiding eldera A terra
corresponding to presiding elders in the
United Brethren church in the Congrega
tional church la found In "field secretaries."
and In the Methodlat-Proeatant church a
similar term la "district superintendent"
The prime object sought to be attained by
the proposed consolidation la an Increase
In the membership of these churchea and
lta working efficiency and capabilities.
The plans which have been discussed look
to the uniting of these three churches in
each city In the United States. By so do
ing there wUl be but one church In each
city where two or three of these denomina
tions are represented. The matter haa
reached auch a stage In some cities that
these churchea have already united, and It
Is the opinion of the ablest representatives
that it is only a question of time until
this situation will obtain In every city in
the United States where these deaomlna
tlna are represented. In the states of
Kansas, Pennsylvania and Ohio these de
nominations have united in several placea,
and there Is now every Indication that sim
ilar ateps will be taken in the state of Ne
braska within a short time.
The arguments advanced in favor of this
movement are numerous. It is held that
the United church will be presided over by
the ablest ministers In the three denomina
tions, that the congregations will be ma
terially Increased, that finer and larger
edifices maf be constructed, that It will be
economical and that the central colleges
and universities contemplated under the
new movement will be placed on a firmer
basis and that the number of students will
be much larger.
The proposition originated with the
United Brethren church, which has been
termed the most democratic church of the
three. In, that the laity may overrule the
bishops who are supposed to be the gov
erning body of the church.

other Congregational mlnfstera will depart
for Geneva, Neb., on Monday, where the
annual aesslon of the Congregational
church Is to be held. At this conference
the matter of consolidation with the other
two denominations will be considered. Rep
resentatives of the United Brethren and
Methodist-Protestant churchea will appear
before the conference and speak upon the
subject The state conferences have no
authoritative voice In the final adjudication
of this matter, but In each state several
conferences are adopting resolutions favor
ing the proposed consolidation, and when
the annual conferences of these churches
meet In 1904 and 1905 the question will be
passed upon by the highest bodies In these
Should the proposed movement be a real
ity, the "presiding elders." "field secreta
ries" and "district superintendenta" will be
dispensed with and a new governing board
for the several states will be authorized.
An additional argument In favor of' the
consolidation is found In the fact that the
united churches will be presided over by
the ablest ministers In these churches.
Since the number of ministers and btshopa
and other high prelates will necessarily be
decreased, the new movement will remove
to the ranks of the laity a large number of
people In these churches who are now hold
ing ministerial and clerical positions, to
gether with the superintendences.
Local representatives of the three
churches to be affected by the proposed
consolidation have held Informal confer
ences regarding the matter and are agreed
on the proposition that it la the moat vital
and far-reaching question that has been
before their denominations In the past
quarter of a century..

ALV0RD DETAINED IN EAST
Water Works Appraiser Delays Pro
ceeding, Which, ft la Bald,
Will En la Coart.
City Attorney Wright haa received a lette
from John W. Alvord, water worka ap
praiser, stating that his work in connection
with the appraisement of the water works
system in Maine will detain him In the asat
so that ha cannot reach Omaha until the
latter part of next week. Thla means that
the sitting of the board to conduct pre
liminary tests aa to the age, size and value
of plpea will not get under way until that
time. When the appralsera adjourned early
In October It was with the understanding
that they meet during the week of October
19 to take up this feature.
Concerning the question of the purchase
of the South Omaha mains along with the
remainder of the aystem, a city official
aid: "The ordinance under which we are
proceeding contemplates the appropriation
of the South Omaha part of the plant It
waa passed by the old council. Neverthe
less we are satisfied that under the Howell
Gilbert law Omaha Is not compelled to pay
money to buy that part of the system In
South Omaha. The water worka company
has Intimated fully that It will Insist upon
this being done, and of course the value of
franchises and contracts In South Omaha
will be put Into consideration. Thla kind
of coercion will be resisted In the courts
and there, now seems to be no doubt but
that the appraisal will precipitate a legal
battle over the South Omaha question."'
