The Triuity M. E. church of Denver, celebrated receut years for haviug as its pastor Bev. Robert Mclutyre whose positiou iu Colorado politics and whose seusational speeches from the pulpit have gaiued for him a uatioual uotonety, has issued a cali to Rev. C. M. ' Cobern, of the M. E. chnroh of tnis city, and the cali has been aoceptnd. Mr. Cobern will not take his Denver charge until October next. The Denver church is one of the flnest ediflces the Methodists iiave in the world. It cost over a quarter of a million of dollars and its organ alone cosfe $30,000. The parsonage is w├Ârth $1 7,000, and its furnishings $3,000. Mr. Cobern will ask for a leave of absence of three ruonths in 1897 to visit the British museum, to complete his commentary on Ezekiel and Daniel, to be pubiished in tbe Whedon series of lectures. The ohurch Monday night elected the following committee to fiud a successor for Mr. Cobern : Dr. Breakey, W. W. Whedon, Prof. Trueblood, J. E. Beal and Prof. Carhart. Mr. Cobern has preached at Monroe, Saginaw, and Cass Avenue, Detroit. His reputation as an Egyptologist has attained great dimensions and no doubt was a feature in the securing for him of this valuable charge. The minister was born in Dninntown, Pa., in April, 1855, graduated at Alleghany college and at the Boston Theological school. He is a man of deep information and has made his reputation in Ann Arbor by a fearless and aggressive poiicy which has won him the admiration and staunoh support of his large oongregation. The Argus voices the sentiment of the community when it says tbat his leave taking here will be a loss to a city of scholars, among whom he was a bright and shining light.
