church had 'been broken down, Rev.
J. J. McCann, for 19 years pastor of
tht congregation, was arrested here
this morning as he itood in his vest
ments at the altar. George McCann,
a brother of the priest, also was ar
rested. Both were locked in the
county jail, but later released.
The scenes at the Church were the
climax of a controversy of some
years' standing. Bishop Muldoon had
issued an order removing Father Mc
Cann, as incompetent, and the order
not being obeyed, an injunction was
obtained, Friday from . Master in

obtained; and last night a force of
constables and police was thrown

peared, got past Constable S. Lorenz
and enteret! the church. ; Lorenz tried
to follow and several shots were, fired.
The police say they came from within.
.When Rev.' r, Gilbert rlynn. ap
pointed by Bishop, Muldoon to take
charge of the Congregation, appeared
a door was broken in. It is charged
that several more shots were fired
from within at this thne. No one was
hit. Deputy Sheriff Claude Poole,
bearing a warrant, found Father Mc
Cann' at the altar. 1 lie priest asked
that he permitted to finish mass, and
this was granted. He.tben was taken
to jail on a charge of assault and bat
tery. George McCann also was
charged with assault and battery.
Later in the day the charge against
George was withdrawn and he. was
freed. Father McCann was re'eased
on bond of $500, furnishtd by h's sis
ters. Hearing of the case was set for
Wednesday next. : "

ing the allies, the Handelsblad says:
' 'Calls It Piracy.
"We cannot think what our govern
ment will do. Will it publish a pro
test refusing to give its approval to
piracy and leave the matter as it is,
or will it make the best of a bad job
and make an exchange for what will
be1 taken if it is not exchanged?
"WiU it request the ministers of
these piratical powers to pack their
trunks and depart? We jhould not
lose much, thereby.
i "We do not know what the gov

is least harmful to the country and

Handelsblad admits that ' it w un
