BISHOP HATCH EXPLAINS WHEN IT WILL COMB.
To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune
Chicago, Sept. 27. —Your editorial and com
munication teaching the anion of the tiro lead
ing Anti-Roman Episcopal Churches in this
country evince a generous, perhaps more than
a judicious, nature. They advocate an impossi
-1 ility on the basis they propose. The last and
moat elaborate of these papers in your yester-
issue is excellent in temper and full of
good will. Yet—
Not for all his faith can see
Can we hie cowled churchmen be.
The roots of the Methodist and Protestant
Episcopal Churches, as you declare, are un
doubtedly the same. Both sprang from a com
mon stock, —the Established Church of England.
Both contain the essentials of that Church in
doctrines, in sacraments, in ordinations, and
have substantially the same ritual for special oc
casions. Both look back to that fountain with
equal reverence. The Methodist Episcopalian is
as proud of Oxford as the Protestant Episcopal
ian, probably prouder. He visits its halls and
gardens with the greatest reverence. There ho
traces the steps of - his great founder, under
God, and notes his influence from and on Lis
tmi.versifcy. With all these points of resemblance,
why can they not unite ?
For these reasons. The Methodist Episcopal
Church will not concede the invalidity of her
ordinations, which conception would be required
her by her sister church as a prerequisite to any
union. She might even claim superior ordina
tions. It is evident from this, as it is from all
the acts of that church looking in the direction
of union with other churches, that the Protestant
Episcopalians will always demand that the union
shall be*o them, and not by them ; that every
church must accept them as their leader and
mother, the source of ecclesiastical being. This
is the tone throughout, though carefully guard
ed, of this communication. It is the keystone
of this church, its central and motive power. It
would not be probable, I might always say possi
ble, for the sister church to accept that passing
under the Caudine Forks, as a preordination to
this marriage. The union might be with her
but not to her.
You will note tho weight of this difficulty, if
you consider ■a remark in this letter, that ** tho
severance of the Methodists from the Church "
—mark the phraseology; there is no recognition
of the present cburcbUness of the Methodists—
‘•was an unusual thing, never contemplated by
the founder of the brotherhood,** Mark, also,
that lost word; for in these slight points are
found the strong grounds against any such union
as is in the mind of our brother, “ The Method
ists " were never severed “from the Church,'*
nor was John Wesley the founder of a “ broth
erhood** Protestant and Methodist Episcopal
Churches began* to be at not far from the same
time, the Methodist Episcopal Church being the
elder. If either should be united to the other,
it should be the younger to tho elder, unless we
are to suppose the Scripture to apply here, that
the eldersbaUsnpply tho younger, and that is not
union, but servitude. John Wesley did not in
tend to sever, but to organize, the Methodist
Episcopal Church. He ordained elders or pres
byters, and consecrated a Bishop who was al
ready a presbyter of the Church of England and
a Doctor of Laws of Oxford. He instructed him
to ordain and consecrate another person as elder
and Bishop. He provided in hia book of Sunday
service for the ordination of a Bishop under tho
title of Snperintendent, which is the exact
synomyn of Bishop. He established and set in
order the Church iu America. Ho endeavored
to essay a similar establishment in England, but
the laws of England interfered with the open ex
ecution of bis plana, and after his death his
E teachers failed to carry out his purposes. He.
owever, ordained presbyters in England and
Scotland, and they administered the sacraments of
baotiszn and the Eucharist. He also consecrated
a Bishop for Great Britain, who was unwisely
rejected by the minister* of his Church. The
consequence is that they have an annual Bishop
ric, ceasing with a single term, incapable of
continual ro-election, and filling their body with
a large number of ex-Superiatendenfes or Bish
ops. H.d they accepted his plan, they would
have been to-day the strongest church In En
gland.
This course your correspondent will not con
sider consistent with one who was only, as he
declares, a “ very earnest priest,** who “ lived
and died in the bosom of the Church.** As a
presbyter of the Church of England, such acta
were in the highest degree revolutionary, and
ecclesiastically treasonable. He did sot exercise
these functions as a presbyter, as “an ardent
priest,” but as a Bishop.
Whence did he get his authority ? Either ha
assumed it, and so set himself up as independent
of bis Church, or ho received Episcopal author
ity from some other souice than the Church of
England. The fonnex he might have felt em
powered to do by the Head of the Church, aa
one to whom it bad been given to create a now
Church, as all modem churches are new—
Episcopalian, Baptist, Presbyterian, Congrega
tional, and Lutheran. Bat Wesley was aa great
a lover of “ a historic Church and its ministry ”
as your correspondent says the Protestant
Episcopalians are. He was a deep student of
church history. Be knew every line
along which this battle of the ages had
been fought. Be was anxious to protect him
self against any charge of being “a setter-up
of strange gods ” ecclesiastic, of departing from
the order and unity of the historic Church. It
is therefore reasonable to conclude that be took
no steps iu this direction till he had been him
self ordained a Bishop. It is almost a historic
certainty that be received such ordination from
the hands of Erasmus, the Greek Bishop of
Crete. Many incidents go to prove this fact. It
is asserted on credible authority that when tho
first Protestant Episcopal Bishop visited En
gland to get consecrated, he called on the Bishop
of London. The Bishop declined to serve him,
