The young priest wan immediately appointed processor and director in the seminary of hi order, a position which he held lor three years and lie ilso founded the new seminary at Cartliageua, in Mercer couMy, Ohio, wi.ich to this day is a dourifchitm institution. The young clergyman was next encaged in parochial work, from which, after live years, he was called to a more iitticnltrtuty. In lv Father Joseph, as he was then fa miliarly known, accot:i-a:siei!

The dio'vee is divi led intu even school districts, aud all the Fchoois in every district are Visited once a year and ex amined by (De or more members of the board. A printed pamphlet of about one hundred taies containing a report from all the schools is annually submitted to the. bishop. This in known as the dioeeian school report. This same system was atterward adopted by the provincial council ot Cincinnati and by the national council of Bal timore, and its main features are established in many dioceses, in the United States. In IM.j tne right reverend pr-late paid an o'Kcial vimt to Home. In 1-M Bishop Jjwenifer eelebr-ited his silver jubilee the twenty-tifth anniversary ol his ordination to the priesthood. All the priests of bis docese, and a number from other parts, gathered in the cathedral to attend the ceremony. The Kr. lv. bishop Badem acher of Nashville preached on the occasion. In Novesnbr and December, 184, the bishop attended the third national counoil of Balti more. The council lasted about six weeks. In llarch, of the foLowing year, he left for Home In tbe intersst of tbe late Baltimore eouncil. as the representative of tbe American hierarchy. The bishop spent seven months in the Kternal city. To his indefatigable labors, and to his knowledge of afiairs pertaining to the church in America, are due to a great extent, the sane tion ot tbe eollege of cardinals and tbe appro bation of the pope, of the deliberations of the lastcooncil of Baltimore. During his stay in Home the bishop was the guest of the North American college. The 4th ef July was at band. The president of the college being ab sent and the officers next in order being some what timid about hoisting the America co ors in such close proximity to the tuiriual psltee, almost in sight of King Humbert's dwelling. But the bishop came to the fere, and as an American citi7an, commanded the flag to be . sent to the top of the stall, amid the joy and patriotic exuberance of all students, who, thonh beneath Italian skies, never forget their native America, nor allow an occasion to pass : without singing the praises of fair Columbia's bores. In 166 Bishop Dwenger carrie 1 oat a long cherished plau of erecting a suitable home for orphan giris. The asylum was built on a iweat-fi ve acre plat of ground within the limits l of the city of Fort Wayne. The building is a credit to the eity and a monument to the gen. rosity ot its founder and supporters. Bishop Dwenger again went to Furope in September, 18S8, on an official visit and was In consultation with the cardinal and also had private audi ence with Leo XIII. The diocese over which Bishop Dwenger pre sided comprised about one-half of the state of Indiana, beiug the northern portion of forty four counties. There are in this diocese 120 priests, 130 churohes and twenty ehaoels, one university, sixty-bve schools and about 9,000 pupils; orphan asylums two, and hospitals five. During his administration as bishop Mon S'gnor Dwenirer conferred the order of priest hood upon many young men. He traveled over his entire diocese as a rale once in every two years, sometimes oftener, either to admin ister confirmation and preach, to dedicate a church or perforin some other episcopal func tion. VAN DYKE ON THE BIBLE. He Sees Danger in Pushing the Hriggs Case Ahead. New York, Jan. 22. The Rev. Dr. Henry Van Dvke, pastor of the Brick Presbyterian church at Fiflh-ave. and Thirty-seventh-et., told hia congregation today that if the theory of the original scriptures was to be set up as a test of Iiis orthodoxy he would be driven from the presbyterian church. Dr. Van Dyke's note of warning was uttered in unmistakable language, and he Eointed out the dangers ahead, if the riggs case was to be pushed to the end. He said in substance r This whole controversy is net a question about the bible as it is and has nothing to do with tbe infallibility of the soripturea. It is simply a question about the differ ence between the bible as it is and the bible as it was in the original manuseripts. This is the real theory ot the inerraney of the original manuscript and of the holy scriptures as they now exist. This part eular theory proposes to divide the ebureh. There are some things on whioh we had all agreed so far as dootrines are con cerned. 1. We all agreed that the bible as it Is con tains some of the handiwork of man and also some of the inbreathing of the Lord. 2. We are agreed that all the discrepancies In the bible are amazingly few and small and unimportant. 3. We are all agreed that tbe advanee of medern scholarship tends to remove the dis crepancies of the bible. The theory of inerraney of the original mauuseripts is not susoeptible of proof. Theory moves entirely in the region of specolttion. No living man has seen the original manuscripts, and there is no authentic description of them. We ought not to .low this theory to become a test of our orthodoxy. It is unconstitutional and was never enforced as a condition of our entrance iota the church and ministry. To enoroe it now would be il legal. For these reasons I will have nothing to do with tbe theory of the inerraney of the original bible manuseripts. I neither athrm it or deny it. This theory may be true or it may be purely imaginary. I am pertectiy content in my ignor ance on the subject aud propose to main tain it. The bible, as it is, is good enough for me. I, for one, mesa to hold fast to tbe book as it is, and if 1 am driven from the pre.byUrian church because I know nothing of the original manuscripts it will be tay comfort, and will he p me in preaching the gospel in the wide field ot Christian work. It is our first du'y not to withdraw from the presby tery. It would be hke abandoning a sh;p in stormy weather. Our consciences demand that we uphold our convictions. It is our duty to study, to be quiet and mind our own business. Let ns mildly but firmly oppose every attempt to enforce the theory of inerrancy as the new test of our orthodoxy or to disturb the liberties we now enjoy. DINNER TO SATOLLI. Given by Bishop Keane Dr. Fdward McGlynn n Guest. Washington-. Jan. 22. Bishop Keane, rector of the catholic university here, where Mgr. Fatolli's permanent head quar era are estab isbed, gave a special tlium r todav in honor of the designation of Mgr. Satolli a9 permanent a post oh del egate to the I'nited States. The gUeHt in cluded Dr. McGivnn a d his friend, Bishop Moore of St. Augustine, Fla,, and the faculty of the university. Dr. Mc (i ynn was present in reap nee to an in vitation addressed to him by Mr. Satoili two days after his reinstatement to the priesthood. To that invitation lr. Mt (fiynn replied that he was expecting hh friend Bichop Moore from Florida, ami if Mgr. Sat. lh had no objection he would like to bring Iiis friend with him. The re sponse was a cordial invitation to Binhop Moore, who arrived with Father McGlynu v eterday and will leave with him for Florida tomorrow, where Father McCilynn will pass thu vtiuttr. The npeeches at the dinner, which were ali delivered in the Latin tongin. were both animated ami in teresting. Bishop Ke ine, epeakinir of the BDoatolic delegate's tnisrtiou to the United State, sai i in eubst ince: I was recently asked if I couli illustrate, by comparison, the rein tion of tais rt)c to the church in the United S'a'es. I answered that It seemed to me very similar to the change that took plnce when a territorial governmeut was elevated to the dignity of a state government in any por;in of thi Union. A territory is governe 1 Lyaburei u;a Ute is governed by a constitution of its own, similar to that of the nriifioa! o'oniea. Thus far tbe ehurch in the United Staus his been in the territorial cate gory, governed by the holy father, through the bureau of tne prorai;ritlM. Now it h:s estab lished in its midst a branch of the holy father's supreme court. lhi we can take an honest pride in, the event we honor to J a v. Lon? life, therefore, tu our greatand beloved holy father, Io XIII, and long life t his worthy repre sentative our Jspostolic delegate, Archbishop SatolU. Mgr. Satolli, in reply, referred to tbe pope's love for the American people, in evidence of which he cited his own ap pointment ah permanent apnetoiic dele-gate to this country. H aW thanked Bishop Keane for having atiorded him the facili ties to make his residence in the universi ty, and ppoke in hiph praise of that insti tution and of the great jrood it would ac complish.

The measure was presented by Mr. Johnson of Marion aud there were but two votes against it becoming a law. There was, however, pome opposition shown to an appropria tion being made by the state for the same purpoe, but it is believed that the oppo sition will not prove serious. The feature of the afternoon session was the visit of the Mexican veterans to the house. There was a great crowd of spectators in the gallery and on the floor below when the visit was made. Gen. Mali ou D. Mansoo was at the head of the body as they entered tbe h dl, escorted by a committee of the house. There are not many of them any more. For twenty years it has been their custom to visit the sessions of the general assembly and each succeeding vis t has witnessed a decrease in their numbers. Those who attended yesterday's session were gray and bent in form and it ia very probable that many of them will not be on earth two years from now. When they entered the hail the members showed their appreciation of the honor of the visit by greeting them with applause. The holism took a etiort recess in their honor. In the interim Gen. Manson, ex-Speaker Xiblack and Speaker Curtis made brief addresses. Gen. Manson ended his by hoping the members of the general assem bly would deal kindly with the G. A. R. encampment which is to be held here the coming fall. Late in the afternoon the house almost unanimously adopted a resolution favor ing ih ; opening of the world's fair on Sun days the same as other days of the week. IN THE SENATE. üpper House Votes to Keep the Fair Open on Suiulajn. The senate adopted a concurrent resolu tion requesting the Indiana delegation to vote for the repeal of the Sunday closing clause of tha world's fair law, by a vote of 27 to 7. A number of bills of minor importance were ordered engrossed and then passed. No other business of importance was transacted. After the ueual routine business of the moriiiug ee.-sion, euch as the rending of the journal and call of committees for re port, had been disposed of Senator Stuart's concurrent resolution against closing the world's lair on Sunday was called up for consideration. The resolution in structed the senators, Turpie and Yoor hees, and requested the members of the lower house of congress to vote for a bill to rep-ai the Sunday closing clause of the world's fair apDropriation. As anticipated, it led to a general discussion, which lasted till noon, wbenit wai adopted, with only Heven votes against it. showing that only 16 per ceut. of the people of Indiana are in favor of Sunday closing to give the beer gardens of Chicago and the gamblers of Rohy a ebenes to do a "land otice" burliness on Sunday. There was a minority report signed by Senators Loveland and Ellison recom mending the rejection of the resolution. In making this report Mr. Ellwon ex plained that he had signed the minority report because congress had settled the question last summer. and he did not think it ought to be reopened. Mr. Love and led the Sunday closing debate, lie admitted that the press of the country demanded a Sunday opening, but be waa one of those old-fashioned young niwn who believed in perpetuating the old fashioned American Sabbath. He did not care what foreigners had to say about our so-called narrow-mindedness. The managers of tbe fair had accepted a bonus from CO' gress in the shape of souvenir half dollars, upon the condition that the fair should be closed on Sunday, and it was unreasonable for them to demand the re peal of that law. lie did not want an anarchistic Sunday. He thought tha opening of the fair on Sunday would be followed by a revolution like the French revolution. A DULL DAY. Several Committees Absent Prevents a Quorum in the Senate. There was not a full attendance of the senate Friday. The prison committee was at Michigan City and the committee on benevolent institutions spent the day among the benevolent institutions in this city. For that reason no bil s were called up for final passage. The G. A. R bill to authorize the city of Indianapolis to levy a tax to entertain the encampment wou d have been called up had there been a con stitutional majority present. Tbe action of the senate Friday shows that there is a disposition to remedy the defects in the fee and salary law of lftlil. The proposition to appoint a roving com mission to examine into the question of fees and salaries did not meet with much upport. THE LOWER HOUSE. Monument Figures Crente Some Discussion New Bills Introduced. The house of representative was a lively body Friday. From early in the morn ing until late in the afternoon the pro ceedings were interrupted every few min utes with a motion from some member to adjourn. The motions mostly came from members who desired to spend Sunday at their homes. During the day motions to adjourn were voted down a dozen or more times, but late in the afternoon they came in such rapid succession end caused eo much turbulence that it was almost im poasible to transact business and an ad journment was forced until 11 o'clock Monday morning. lila üb- n.0 wuoui.it;u ii.iouium ujaiuij i -4a Iia a rr9 t r i pAmmilUAi .1 1 h am n h a ami few bills were introduced.

A bill has already been intro- itnrRil makincr it nnlawfnl for an tnnliixap to discharge an employe on account of his belonging to a labor organization. The house showed a disposition yester day to sit down upon the miscellaneous and reckless appropriation of the state's funds, by killing a bill for the appropria tion of money to the Gettysburg battle memorial association. When the house was convened Fri day morning Mr. Barnes of Jennings of fered his resolution indorsing the action of the monument commission in relation to dates on the monument. It was re ferred to the monument committee. Mr. Thornton moved that when the house adjourned it be until Monday at 11 o'clock. LoL A number ot members were granted leaven of absence. Mr. Ader finally ob jected to the house granting any more leaves of absence, and thought the house should be in session Saturday and at work. Mr. Barnes also stated ob jections to granting any more members the privilege of being absent. Mr. Buugher of Marshall offered the following resolution providing for a joint committee of five to investigate tbe charges against the monument commis sioners : Whereas, Charges have been made by the Q. A. It, au organization of honorably dis charged uuion soldiers and sailors, with over five hundred posts in the state, and a member ship of 25 00, and also by thousands of ex union soidiers who are not G.

A Redaction of Eleven Judges tn Be Made by the General Assembly. The special committee composed of Senators Stuart of Marion, Wray of Shel by and McCutcheon of Yanderburg, to report a new apportionment of judicial di-tricts with a view of economy, ha agreed upon a bill which will be reported Monday. The report will be unanimous, there being no politics in the measure, but it will save annua. ly to the tax payers $100,000 in the way of salaries and court expenses. The bill reduces the number of judges itom fifty-five to forty-four and, of course, the prosecuueg attorneys are affected in the same way. The judges are paid by tbe state $-'..: 0 each. niaKinga saving in the sal ! aries of he useless eleven judzes dropped I ot! S-7.500 a year. The prosecuting at torn s also receive S5i) from the state, and by dropping o eleven of them the täte will save Sö.'OO more, or a total sav ing of $33,000 iu salaries alone to the state. But this ia not all. in email counties ike Hancock and Henry, where each !im a judge. the court must ireg cases along to make ap pearance of business, whereas if tvo or more sucti counties were joined the court would hurry up and clear the docket in a very short time. This would ntve thousands of do!' are on jurors, per die-n and other court expenses. As an il- lustration of how the present system works the two circuits, the Forty-fourth Thirty-second, are c ted. Tbe Forty-fourth circuit is composed of the counties of Starke and Pti aski, two small counties with a combined poou ation of 10.572. There is no manufacturing, no iaru cities and no corporations, and much ot the territory is included in the Kankakee regions. Yet these two counties have a judge and prosecuting attorney wnich coHt the state $ J.000 a year. Well informed lawyers say tnat ad the business in ts.oie two counties could be transacted 1 tnre weeks. The judge can devote I the remainder of his lime to fishing in the Kankakee. The Thirty-second circuit is composed of St. Joseph and Laporte, two large popo loua counties of 7ii X7 inhabitants. In the county of I.aporte there are two cities, Laporte and Michigan City, which latter city hs a har bor and state prison. Discharged convicts and sailors give 'he courts con siderable criminal work. There ar more railroads in Laporte than in any other county in the state and numerous corpor ations exist. In St Jocepu there is the city of South Bend, fuli of corporations, with some of the largest manufacturing establishment in the state. There is also tbe city of Mishawalcee full of fhops. Jufge Noyes has been judge in thu circuit for twelve years. His deckel is always up to time. And yet he eaya that he always finds plenty of time to go fishing and would not have l is circuit reduced because he thinksit wou'd cause him to become lazy. Yet Henry, Hendricks, Hancock, and many othrr counties have judges of their own counties without lare cities or corpor ations, with few railroads. The new circuits will be composed as follows: Lake and Porter. Laporte and St. Joseph. Marshall, Starke and Pulaski Ekhart and Lagracge. Steuben and Dekalb. Noble and Whitley. Benton. Newton and Jasper. Fulton and Miami. Kosciusko and Wabssh- Iluntington and Weds. Adams and Jay. Grant and Blackford. Howard and Tipton. Carroll and Clinton. Fountain and Montgomery.
