at the Elisabeth, 9T. J., Christ
New lork World.
The Rev. H. H. Oborly, rector of
Christ church, "Elizabeth, N. J., is in
hot water with ' his congregation.
Reports are current cf n scene last
Sunday- in Christ church when he
refund communion to Mies Mayo, a
member of the church. . It is said the
lady wept bitterly when he passed
her by without administering the
sacrament This is not the first time
he has doi.e the same thing, It is
stated that he has refused to give
Miss Mayo communion since the time
an altercation arose between them
and she struck the pastor. The af
fair was published at the time in the
. Miss Mayo is a lady of refinement,
and is a member of a well known
family of Richmond, VaM and a niece
of the late Gen. Winfic Id Scott. Her
brotherMn-law, Gen. Qracie, wag a
distinguished officer in the Confed
ate army. : Miss Mayo is a devout
church goer, and Is noted for works
of chanty. She dresses in a rather
eccentric way, and it is said can be
found kneeling at the church door
long before the doors of the edifice
are opened. The quarrel between the
pastor and herself has had many ver
sions, but the following, from an in
timate friend of the lady told to the
World reporter, is considered the
He states Miss Mayo went to the
church and entered the vestry to get
a silver plate belonging to her. which
was lying beside the baptismal fount.
Rev. Mr. Oberly was in the vestry.
When she reached her hand for the
plate he pushed it to one side and
said she could not have it. She became
indignant at this, whereupon h,e or
dered $be sexton to put "her ; out.
When "that worthy attempted to
place his hand on her arm Miss Mayo
gave him a violent push back. He
stumbled and fell oyer a coal sputtle
The rector made a motion which she
construed into an intention to strike
her. She instnntjy took th aggres
sive and struck him with her hand,
in which she held a hymnal. She
then abruptly left the church. On
the following Sunday the pastor in
giving communion passed her by.
MJ asked the minister why this was
done," said the gentleman who nar
rated the above story,' "and he
haughtily replied, Oh, we've ex
communicated her.' I was puwled
to know," said the gentleman,
"where the authority was given tho
rector to excommunicate , anybody' i
for such an offense without consult'
ing his superiors." i
- It is only a short time ago that Mr.
Oberly removed M, r. Colburn, the
bUnd organigt, who had served the
phurch in that capacity over thirty
years. This caused , a "commotion,
and intensified the dissatisfaction
against the ; rector. The. congrega
tion of Ohriafc church; includes the
most aristocratic people of Elizabeth.
Tfte rupture between the rector and a
portion of his flock is serious, and
growing wider daily.

No one doubted the right of toe-Pres
ident to invest some lady member of
his family a daughter, a sister or a
nieoe with the domestic arid social
prerogatives of his high station. - It
was during the caDtivatirisr snf.ial
reign of Mary Arthur McElrov. the
petite and pretty sister of President
Arthur, that Blue Grass statesmen
ana dames undertook to force this
heretical doctrine into the social
forms of official life. The w ife of the
Speaker was exalted as the first lady
of the land, and held a rump court at
one of the hotels. ! i
The inauguration of Groyer Cleve
land revived this vigorous contro
versy in a more formidable shape. In
the administration of President Ar
thur there was simply a President
pro tem. of the Senate, then in the
line of succession to the Executive
office.hut whose wife was ah invalid,
and upon which frail assumption the
wife cf the Speaker aspired to tEre
honors of reigning queen. The elec
tion of Thomas A. Hendricks as Vice
President placed the wife of that
omcer next in line m the van of the
aspiring fashion- of the feminine
world of the great government. Mrs.
Hendricks, had made the! appoints
ment of the rugged "Joe'' McDonald
a political impossibility, and when
Miss Rose Cleveland took her place
as the presiding lady of the White
House notice was served against her
assuming social precedence as first
lady of the land. I
President Cleveland, with an exhi
bition of sagacity in fine points of
etiquette surpassed only by; the deli
cate sensibilities displayed in his
love, courtship and marriage, clipped
the wings of this threatened rebellion
in the social world by giving to the
late Miss Katharine Bayard, the
daughter of his Secretary jof State,
the place of precedence next to Miss
Cleveland at the initial levee held
under the auspices of his administra
tion. The wife of the Vice President
was ignored as a claimant not only
to the post of first lady, but even of
he honors of the first social enter
tainment. , f (
