The Rev. Ernest M. Stires Choice cf
Informal Conference as
Successor to I)r. 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.
