FOR MS. DOWIE
Court Decides He Was!
Only Trustee For
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
he would serenely vow his readiness
at all times to abandon his family and
betray his country.

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
"WE WANT PEACE," SAYS DOWIE
But Not With Dishonor," and He Re
fuses a Further Statement.
Chicago, July 27.—The effect of to
a > s decision is to place the indus
