On Sunday March lUth.a division was
made In the Catholic dloccso of Tlttsbuig;
ltlshop Domlnec, who lias long presided
over tho diocusc. was consecrated llishop
of Allegheny, and thu Kight Kcvcrcnd J.
Twlgg was consecrated llishop ot Tltts
burg. Tho change wa necessitated by
the largo lncrcau in tlie membership of
the Catholic churches in the dioccu of
Tittsburg since IbtlO. In that year, when
Father liomlnee wan made llishop of
Tlttsliurg, there were lll'ty thousand
Catholics In the whole diocese. Now,
the surprising announcement Is made that
there are two hundred thousand. The
I.IIIIUSU Ul pi SCIIOOI-, CIIUICIICS,
has been proportionate. In Allegheny
county alone, during thu period of thu
episcopacy, more than twenty-six
churches have been built, eight new re
ligious female communities have been In
troduced and twenty now convent schools
established. The number of charitable
and educational institutions have been
largely Increased, and all this ha been
comparatively so sudden that It was
found necessary to divide the illocosu lu

discharged. It Is predicted that lSi.-hop
