Ilev. Dr. Elliott Thinks tho Erec
tion ot the Diocese of Euxton Will
Servo u a Precedent.
Bishop William Paret, of the Diocese of
Maryland, will to-day Issue a circular call
to the new Diocese ot Washington, which
has been set off from the Maryland dio
cese, to meet in the first, or "primary," con
vention or the new diocese in St. An
drew's Church, Fourteeutli street, Wash
ington City, on Wednesday morning, De
cember 4, at 10 o'clock.
This convention will probably elect a
bishop for the diocese. It will elect a
standing committee of the new diocese, a
board of missions, a secretary aud a treas
urer. The convention will make provision for
the care or the diocese until the new bishop
is consecrated. This may be done by em
powering the standing committee to act,
or In some other way.
There will be about sixty churches and
seventy clergymen connected with Hie new
diocese of Washington. This will leave
within the Jlmits of the diocese of Maryland
about 130 clergymen- aud 110 churches.
Bishop Paret will open and preside over
the new diocesan convention.
The bishop was seen yesterday at his res
idence on Madison avenue, Baltimore. He
thinks he will not have occasion to regret
remaining in the Maryland diocese.
"The dlvlsloi. or the diocese," said he,
"will take otf about one-third of my work
required In the old diocese. The work la
this diocese will be about twice as hard
as in the new diocese, owing to the ter
ritory in the other being more concen
trated The Maryland diocese still extends
from the mountains to the bay."

The new Ep'scopal diocese or Washington
will have to elect new delegates, who "win
be cho5en by the vestry of each parish.
"The election of delegates for the
special com en lion will be in harmony with
the principles of constitutional law, as
well as with precedent. The precedent
most interesting in the present case is
that of the erection of the diocese of
Easton. That, too. wasanart of thediocese
of Maryland, and it is, therefore, possible
to argue rum what was done on that occa
sion what thould be done In the primary
convention of "Washington.
"There were very able church lawyers
present at the Easton convention. Among
them was Rev. Dr. Meyer Lewin, and this
makes the precedent a safe guide for the
proceedings here. I have studied very
carefully tLe Journal of that first conven
tion in Easton, and the lay delegates then
presented their certificates of election,
which were examined by a committee and
reported on to the convention as the cer
tificates of men newly elected. .
"A little senous consideration of the
subject would seem to be sufficient to
produce the conviction that the election
or a dt-legate to the conveution of Mary
land would not entitle him to a seat
and vote in a convention for the diocese
of Wasliington.
Dr.EIliott said that It woulif be impossible
now to say who would be selected at the
vestry liicctings to represent the parishes
at the convention, which will be con
vened by Li-hop Paret early in Dec-ember.
The dlvis.on of the diocese. Dr. Elliott
saiil, is a tuli.'ect witli which most church
people are now thoroughly familiar. It
was decided upon at the primary conven
tion held here last May. and was ratified
by the general convention at Minneapolis,
witli promises of admission Into the onicn
when created and organized by the pri
mary convention. It is this coming pri
mary convention, however, that brings the
new diocese into real existence.
Of tin probable selection for bishop
at the coming convention of the newly
created diocese Dr. Elliott said that at
the present time it was impossible to say
on whom the choice would fall. Washing
ton contains a number of available can
didates, and It is very probable that the
new hUl'op will he selected from this
