DOWIE Court Decides He Was! ** Only Trustee For Zion City Chicago. July 27.—Judge Landis of the Cnlted States district court gave his do, islon today in the controversy between the adherents of John, Alex ander Dowie and Wilbur Voll va over the property ai Zion City. The court holds that Zion City and its industries do not belong to Dowie; that while the contributors of the funds did not express a formal decla ration of trust, the trust was created and Dowie had no right to treat the property as his own. The c ourt refused to appoint Aliex Granger receiver for the reason that Granger made a vow recognizing Dowie as a "messenger nant. the prophet foret and Elijah the restorer." "ail family ties and obligations and all , relations to human governments shall ! be held subordinate.' The court said that he was obli gated to repose confidence in a man j so constituted that loving this republic 1 I he would serenely vow his readiness at all times to abandon his family and betray his country. f the cove Id by Moses to which 'n't j I The court ordered an election on the third Tuesday in September of a gen eral overseer, all members of ^he church residing in Zion City, male and female, to have one vote. He announced a suitable provision would be made for Davis on aecount of his services as trustee. MEANS END OF ZION CHURCH God Almighty Alone Can Choose Lead er of the Apostolic Order. Zion City, July 27.—Deacon John A. Davis, spokesman for Dowie, said re garding the decision ; "If the deeree stands, the Christian Catholic apostolic church of Zion is uprooted. The church is founded on the theory of a theocracy and how can an election held under the laws of Cook county proclaim who shall be the leader of the hosts? "I maintain that God Almighty alone can designate who shall be first apostle. I firmly believe the Lord has designed John Alexander Dowie to lead the hosts to the paths of light. Therefore when a special election is called the whole fabric of the church '* destroyed. If God designates the leader, how can a man choose him? ds far as his property rights un concerned they matter little to us. The great question Is that of spiritual con lr «l. rpon that the very foundation of the church depends. 1 am sure* Mr. Dowie will never be satisfied with the decision rendered." "WE WANT PEACE," SAYS DOWIE But Not With Dishonor," and He Re fuses a Further Statement.
