There is naturally a great deal of interest
felt among: local Episcopalians in the ques
tion whether or not Rev. Dr. Satterlee will
accept the call to be the first bishop of the
new diocese of Washington. Inasmuch as
he has not yet been officially notified of his
election no intimation has been received of
Ms intention in the matter beyond the un
derstanding that he would give up his
charge in New York with genuine regret.
The committee, which was appointed at
the primary convention to call upon Dr.
Satterlee, will leave for New York at 10
o'clock tomorrow morning. They will prob
ably call at the rectory of the bishop-elect
tomorrow afternoon.as several of the mem
bers will be compelled to return to Wash
ington that night. The committee consists
of Rev. Dr. John H. Elliott, the president
of the standing committee; Rev. Alfred
Harding, the secretary; Rev. Dr. Mackay
Smlth and Gen. John G. Parke.
A Meeting; of Laymen.
A meeting of the laymen of the various
churches of the District has been called for
this evening, to be held at the Church of
the Epiphany, for the purpose of getting an
expression of views that may carry some
weight with Dr. Satterlee in forming his
decision. It is probable that two or more
influential business men will be asked to
accompany the special committee on its
mission to New York, to urge upon Dr.
Satterlee, on behalf of the laity, the ac
ceptance of the call. In all his work In
New York he has been extremely popular
with the laymen, and it is thought that If
the call were seconded by the laymen of
this city it might influence him more than
a little. They will urge upon him the im
portance of the work in the new diocese,
and the broad field of usefulness that will
be open to him here. The new Episcopal
cathedral and its needs will be urged upon
his attention, as well as other features of
the work which would appeal to his vigor
ous personality, and his desire for broad
A member of Dr. Satterlee's church in
."?Cew ? York, who has a deep affection for
him and expresses the gieatest regret at
[he possibility of his leaving Calvary
Church, has written a letter to Rev. Mr.
Harding, in the course of which he says:
"If Dr. Satterlee accepts you will have a
bishop who will galvanize and organize the
Jiocese into intense activity, and make
svery man, woman and child work like a
troop horse. I never came across a man
who could think out new church enter
prises anC set reople to ^rork more vigor
ously thar. he does; and, vhat is more, he
has the business faculty of making his en
terprises successful and self-suttaining.'*
Mi?y Consider It a Month.
A telegram received from New York this
ifternoon says that Dr. Satterlee refused
today to make any statement regarding
fiis acceptance or refusal of the office. Hia
issociate. Rev. F. B. Howden, speaking for
him, said: "Dr. Satterlee will make no
statement regarding his election to the
bishopric of Washington for at least one
month, during which time he will take the
matter under consideration."
Dr. Satterlee is Just recovering from a
severe attack of laryngitis.
