IN THE RELIGIOUS WORLD
Churches are taking steps, through
thejr official agencies, to establish train
ing schools for laymen. The laymen, on
their own account, are also making sim
ilar moves. The Southern Presbyterian
Assembly named a committee to draw
up courses of study and encourage syn
ods to Dlan classes. Their aim Is to
make the schools continuous throughout
the year, but as a beginning we nrst
summer school In the Southern Church
has Just closed Its successful session at
Jackson, inauguratea mere or me
Hvnod of Mississippi.
The purpose or tnese scnoois is to mane
more effective the larger Interest now
held bv laymen. In a few cases it is
contemplated to pay trained men who
as leaders, but the governing Idea Is
that those who are trained In these
schools shall be lawyers, bank clerks.
professional, and other business men,
who give their spare time, or some part
of It, without salaries. These schools, as
far as they have gone, give Instruction
along all lines, as missions, Bible study,
boys work, social service, and evangel-
Ism, and thus. It Is held, will do much
to batter down the narrowness which
usually obtains when one Una of work
only la fostered.
Episcopal. Presbyterian, Lutheran, and
Congregational bodies are leading thus
far In this lay Instruction. Some of tnese
bodies are employing the metnoa recom
mended by the new school at Nashville,
where It Is contemplated to train sal
aried lay readers for work throughout
the South. More are, however, advo
cating the endowment of chairs in these
subjects named, ns many as possiDie in
each, and then sending teachers from
city to city, a month or three months
at a place, as the need may be, to in
struct local teachers and workers. The
notion prevails that the churches are on
the eve of a. tremendous development of
strength through the utilization, aiier
training In these schools, of volunteer and
unofficial lay help. The schools are to
be for both women and men, but many
of them have men chleny In view.

plague, express confidence In the govern
ment's efforts, and point out: First, that
the cleanlng-up process will In the long
run prove a good thing tor Porto Rlcans,
and. second, that Americans at home help
the people of the Island to establish hos
pitals to care for the sick, and schools to
teach, among other subjects, how to se
cure sanitation and keep well. So far
none save native Porto Ricans have been
attacked, and the plague Is confined
chiefly to San Juan, and to one of the
poorest sections of the city.

Church by a negro congregation, organ
ized by seceders from Vermont Avenue
Baptist Church, as rumor had It the
past week. Is declared to be extremely
unlikely. It is stated that no offer has
been made for the property and no de
posit placed. On the contrary, the Gur
ley congregation claims to hate good rea
son for retaining its present site as the
completion of the Florida Avenue car
line has made the church one of the most
accessible in the city. Furthermore, the
church Is In a prosperous condition finan
cially In Its present location and not de
sirous of trying a different one. After

Acting under direction o fthe last Gen
eral Assembly all boards of Presbyterians
North have Just met and formed a new
department of missionary education.
Heretofore there have been educational
systems for the home and foreign boards.
while for the most part other boards like
the college, freedmen. and Sunday school
have gone without. The systems of the
two boards' named have been worked
quite separately, sometimes with overlap
ping results, in other cases of overlook
ing of fields. '
Working together, it is the T1an of the
new department to serve men's and -women's
organizations, Sunday schools, young
people, and children's cldbs, and to do
so as representative of alt Presbyterian
Interests of all kinds. It la stated that
much preliminary study will be needed
to co-ordinate existing methods. There
will be lectureships, with a bureau to di
rect speakers, common summer schools,
and education In the use of duplex en
velopes and the sending In of money col
lected, without holding It in treasurers'
hands. The movement came "originally
from the boards themselves, having been
ordered by the assembly at the sugges
tion of the parties at Interest. It .Is the
first time In the history of Presbyterian
missionary effort that common plans on
uiis scale nave been attempted.

When Mr. Oler emerged from the grand

York, when, after furnishing records to
the court, they were left ln an open
corridor and kicked and thrown around

Mr. Oler "It precedes every campaign,

Mai.es Plea to Keep Iter
Pets of Thirteen Yerr.
Mrs. Martha E. PywelL of 1101 Elev
enth Street Southeast, appeared ln the
Police Court yesterday and made an Im
passioned speech In behalf of ber pet
rooster ail three hens, each thirteen
vcars of age Mrs Pywell was arrested
for violation of the health regulations
in keeping fowls within twenty-five feet
of a dwelling house
"Judge," she said. "I've had these
chickens for thirteen years and I"v
grown to love them dearly. How can
vou be so cruel as to take my darlings
trom me' All of this painful sorrow has
been caused by my neighbor, who U

Chinese Assembly Approves Nomi
nation 31ndc tty President.
The State Department learned this af
ternoon through the American legation
at Pekin that the national assembly has
confirmed the nom'nation of the men se
lected bv President Yuan Shlh Ka.1 to
fill the existing vacancies ln the cabinet.
This action by the assembly is believed
here to have averted a crisis ln the Chi
nese republic The assembly had been
threatened, according to advices reaching
Washinston. with a military dictatorship
If It didn't jiold to Yuan and confirm his
nominations to the cabinet
Hope Is entertained or. the State De
partment that the new ministry will tako
up the questlin of a loan with the inter
national group of bankers. Negotiations
in regard to the proposed J3t,.0C0,CJ0 loan
are at a standstill owing to the rejection
by the former minister of finance of the
bankers' proposals because of the pro
visions for foreign supervision of the ex
penditures of the loan funds.
