"Ilia present wife" begsn the bish

state delegate sprang to his feet.
"One moment."' he cried "Io I un
derstand sny brother aright? Ild be
aay 'hla present wife,' and am I to un
derstand that by that phrase he meana
to imply that the brother elert has bsd
previous wife? Bern use. If so, I can
not vote for hla confirmation. t. Paul
eays, 'A bishop must be the husband of
one wife.' "
