FAVORS DIVIDING THE DIOCESE
Episcopal Council Favors Idea When
$40.000 is Raised.
Yorkville, May 2.' That this
council considers the division of
the diocese desirable when $40,
000 is added to the present bish
op's permanent fund," is the
wording of a resolution adopted,i
by the Episcopal diocesan coun-;
cil here today. This with the 1
adoption of a resolution provid
ing for a special committee tol,
look into the advisability of elect
ing a negro suffragan bishop of
.he (Iiocese were the chief mat
Lers of interest disposed of by
the council today.
Bishop Guerrv suibmitted hisi,
annual report this morning. and 1
in it he explaiite.' posi!,on on
ihe diio o' the diocese. He
s ha: he did no(.t mean bv:

for te oscopte.Xhtat he Saiw
hat ence tZ the noti:e ser
v ed on he diocese that the mat
ter oT division would come u)
again at the Yorkville meeting.
In the letter he expressed him
self as believing that the contin
ued agitation of a division of the t
diocese was setting back the work,1
of the church and preventing co-'
operation on matters of great im-,
portance which concerned the.
welfare of the diocese as a whole.
He opposed a discussion of the
division in advance of ah increase t
of endowment with which to pro
vide money to finance the addi
tion of diocese. When a division
is made feasible by increased en-;
dowment, and when it is clearly i
the wish of a majority of the lay-'i
men of the diocese to divide,;
Bishop Guerry says he will not
oppose the divisions.
The special committee which
was empowered to raise the en
dowment of about $40.000 for the
division reported this morning t
that they considered it useless to
attempt to raise funds after
Bishop Guerry had issued kis
open letter in June, therefore
the con.mittee had._.not acted.-,+
The -colWhnitteei -nowever,meanalq
formulated a report which was
submitted to the council to-day, t
in which it was stated thac it
was their belief that the endo,v
ment could be raised and rec
ommended that the council ap
point a committee of three with
full power to carry into execu
tion the issuing of coupon bona
in several denominations, matur
ing in ten years. This recom
mendation was adopted and then;
this council werrt .on record as,
thinking a division of the diocese;
desirable when the endowment
of $40,000 is raised.
Sad Death of Little Child.
Mr. John Varmadore, wvho lives
at the old Newton Gaston lace:
twelve miles from Chester, lost
his youngest ehild, a boy be- Q
tween six and seven months old,
under p)articularly sad and dis
tressing circurestances I a s t
Thursday afternoon. The child
had been taken out into the yard
in its carriage by the- other chil-I
dren for a ride- and had been I
left there by its brothers and
sisters, who had bocome absorb
ed in their games and gone back
to the house. W1hen Mr. Varna
dore came in and inquired about
the baby they were playing in
the house, and it w'as only after.
a moment or two that one of the
little girls remembered that the
child had been left:in the yard.
When the father drew near the,
carriage he was horrinfed to find:
the child's head over the strap
that held it in the seat and life
extinct. It had eindeavored to
change its position i-n the car-'
riage, and in some way its head
had caught over the strap and it:
had been strangled.
Mr. Varnadore lost his wife
only a few days ago, and this
second bereavement under such
deplorable cir'umstances i s
doubly sad.--Chester Reporter.
