Greer Now York, June 7.?The special convention for electing a successor to David IT. Greer, late Bishop of New York, will probably not be cal'led until fall, because of the diffi culty of getting the delegates to gether in summer and the impossi bility of the new bishop's being con secrated bef?re autumn, anyway, because consent must first be gained from all the bishops and all of the diocesan standing committees in the United States, or from the General Episcopal Convention, which meets in Detroit in October. A meeting of the standing committee of the dio cese of New York was held yester day aternoon. The Rev. Ernest M. Stires. rector of St. Thcmas' Church, Fifth ave nue and Fifty-t.hird street, is thought of as the ,man most apt to be elected, as his name received more votes than any other at an in formal conference held in the parish house of St. Bartholomew's Church to discuss nominees.
