Louis July cablegram to the TFotcm Watchman brings the news from Koine that the Propaganda has di rected the appointment of Bishop Bourdo as Bishop of the combined dioceses of Omaha and Cheyenne The importance of the news arises from the fact that it is an evidence that the Propaganda will not sanction a Roman appointment as against the recom mendation of a congress of American Bish ops On Bishop OConnors death the Bishops of the province were called together and sent three names to Rome from which to choose t a successor It was generally believed that Vicar General Phillip Bradley of St Louis would receive the appointment The bishops will again recommend Braclloy As it is the action shows an unprecedented regard for American bishops recommendations and it is thought indicates that the time
