ARE WHITE MINISTERS TOO Bishop Say? the Rev. Duty Is Not the Only One ?A/ho Has Kept a Regis? ter?Won't Say Where the Others Are Located. Aocordlng to the bishop of the Diocese of Virginia, tho Rov. Maximo F. Duty, of St. Philips" Colored Episcopal Church of this city, Is not tho only rector within these parts who han found It convenient ..to keep a reglstor of his congregation, In which h? sume Up his flock according to the estimation In which ho holds them. It will be recalled that very recently the Rev. Duty became suddenly Immersed'In very hot water, Incident to the unexpected discovery by members" of his church of the aforesaid register, in It were tho names of his people and against each name was Inscribed a word which brlelly ?told what the rector thought of the bear? ers of these names. Tho words Wore "good," "bad," "Indifferent," "Ignorant," and so on. There was at once an uproar and thore was some talk of a f orthcom- - Ing' resignation. On Wednesday night last Bishop Rob? ert A. Gibson visited tho church and hold a service, He ,confirmed a class of six, and there was at this particular timo no evidence of a disturbance. Things moved smoothly and well. But from what can ho ascertained the fires are still smoldering, Tho Bishop was asked yesterday about tho matter and he said that there was still, some little division among tho congregation, but he had hopes that things would work out all right in tho end. It Is believed'by some that the trouble portends the resignation ot tho Kev. Duty, and It has 'been reported that he has gone so far as to consult with the Bishop as to the advisability of taklpg this stop. Bish? op Gibson was asked about this matter also yestorday, but he evidently did not delire to go into any great dotali. Ho said rectore often consulted with him about the advisability ot staying at a certain field. Thoy did this frequently whether there was any trouble in tho congregation or not And then tha Bishop made a most Interesting state? ment. "The rector of St Philip's Is not the only rector who keeps a register such ns he keeps. I have found since this troublo that there aro others." "Are they all colored?" "No. White." "Why haven't they gotten Into a mud? dle?" "The congregation haven't gotten hold of tho book yet?" 'Who are some of those rectors, for In? stance. Aro any of them In Rich? mond?" "I won't tell you that." VALUABLE PORTRAITS The Texas Room Receives Those of General.Reagan and Colonel Terry.
