PASTORS WILL APPEAL.
The adjourned term of the district
court was called in Albert Lea Tues
day, June 30, by Judge Kingsley of
Austin and one of the church cases
involving Rev. T. J. Strand is up for
hearing.
An action to determine who were
the legally elected trustees of the
West Freeborn Norwegian congrega
tion,-commonly known as the Man
chester church, was tried last
March. The court decided that the
so-called anti-Strand forces consti
tuted the congregation arid that their
trustees were the legally elected
ones. A stay of proceedings, was
granted until July 1. Under this
stay Rev. T. J. Strand and his fol
lowers have remained in possession
of the church, burial ground and
parsonage.
An application was made a few
days ago to extend the stay pending
an appeal to the supreme court.
This motion was heard today. The
court.refused to extend the stay and
judgment will now be entered oust
ing the Strand trustees and seating
the legally elected trustees of the
congregation. This ends the cases
so far as the district court is con
cerned, against the two brothers, T.
J. Strand and H. J. Strand, pastors
of the five Freeborn county churched,
as both have now been ousted by the
court decisions. Steps are being tak
en by the Strand forces to appeal.
