CONTROVERSY OVER MONEY Bequest to Home Missionary Society Alleged to Have Gone Into Wrong Hands, TOPEKA, Nov. 'Carrie B. Cope, of Topeka, has filed suit against Bishop David H. Moore, of Cincinnati, of the Methodist Episcopal church, asking for damages. The suit grew out of the controversy over the organization by Mrs. Cope of au aux- iliary of the national branch of the 'Woman's Home Missionary society, and a letter which was written by the bishop relative to the disposition, made of a bequest left that society. Charges were recently filed against Bishop Moore by Mrs. Cope to the conference of bishops. Mrs. Cope al- leges that the letter was calculated to Injure her "as a citizen, as a wife, as a mother, and as a Christian." She declares she has been Humiliated, pained and hurt. The trouble which precipitated the present controvercy started over a be- quest of Mrs. Fannie Murray of Atch- ison county several years ago. Mrs. Murray provided a deed of trust to Property she owned in California val- ued at The deed was made to H. M. Jackson, an Atchison county- attorney. Upon her death, the deed provided that half of the property should go to the Women's Foreign Missionary society and the othef half was to go to the "Women's Mome Mis- sionary society of the Kansas confer- ence of the Methodist church." There was no such society, the one to which Mrs. Murray belonged being the "Women's Home Missionary So- ciety of the Kansas Conference." Later Mrs. Cope and others are said to have organized and incorporated a society named in accordance with the terms of Mrs. Murray's bequest, and Mr Jackson is said to have pa'id this, society the sum of of ths permanent fund. This, it is said, has been invested. When new officers of the Kansas society weie elected, about two, ago, it was found that a" permanent fund exited, and the new officers de- manded money. This, it is asserted, was refused. A suit to recover the money folleived. Mis. Cope demanded a public apology from Bishop Moore, who has repeated- ly stated that he has done nothing which calls foi an apology. He said: "I feel that I had an absolute right to send the letter concerning which Mrs. Cope complains, and I do notr feel that any question of a retraction can enter into the discussion. It was rumored that Mrs. Cope will ask for a warrant for Bishop Moore's arrest, but this could not be verified. courtroom, than had been present on a previous occasion to hear President YORK, Nov.
