Witness for God

Trinity Cathedral was crowded this morning with a notable audience assembled to witness the consecration of Rev. Arthur Llewellyn Williams, bishop-coadjutor of the diocese of Nebraska. All the pews were taken early in the morning, an hour or more before the beginning of the lengthy services, and at ten o'clock, when the ceremonies opened, there was scarcely standing room.

Rt. Rev. George Worthington, S.T.D., LL.D., Bishop of Nebraska, was the presiding bishop and consecrator. The co-consecrators were Rt. Rev. John Francis Spalding, D.D., Bishop of Colorado, and Rt. Rev. Theodore Nevin Morrison, D.D., Bishop of Iowa. Rev. Mr. Morrison served as substitute for Rt. Rev. William Edward McLaren, D.D., D.C.L., Bishop of Chicago, who was unable to attend on account of illness. Rev. Mr. McLaren had been mentioned on the programme as the preacher, and in his absence Rev. Mr. Morrison delivered the official sermon.
