The visitors retainod posscssion of the house until servod with an ouster by Deputy Sheriff McKale, who ia in possession pending the result of a hearing before Circuit Court Commissioner Fraaer, all the defendants having been released on thoir personal recognizanci;. The anti-Slattery faction have carried their grievancee to Bisliop Foley and Mgr. Satolli, and, neither having made the investigatlon demanded, they adopted this method of gotting the case into the court s. Tuesday's affair was precipitatod by the action of Plrther Siattery in granting absolution Suuday to daughters of two of the opposing faction, and then when they appeared by his direotion for communion Tuesday it was publicly denied them.
