But that which elicited the most animated
discussion was the evangelistic work in
the Synod. It appears that about twenty-
nine counties in the State have no Presby-
terian .Church in them, and fifty-three
counties have wide areas of destitution.
It is the desire and aim of the Synod to
plant a .rres by terinn Church in every
destitute field in the State. "To help on
this work the Synod elected two evan-
eelists. Rev. D. E. Jordan and Rev. W.
E. Mcllwaine, to labor iu these destitute
regions, " A visitor to the Synod, who was
competent to judge, declared the discus-
eion to be the ablest that be had beard
upon the subject. Prominent among the
speakers were the Rev. Messrs. Penick,
Primrose, Samuel M. Smith, Cook, Jor-

The Synod was made up largely of men
in the prime of life, a rather good-looking,
healthy and good tempered set of men.

The Citizens' Bank of Georgia.
Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 11. William H.
Patterson, Cashier of the late Citizens'
Bank, which suspended in March last, was
arrested here to-day at the instance of J.
M. B. Carleton, on a warrant charging
Patterson with o cheating . and swindling.
Patterson was about leaving for New
York, for the purpose of engaging in busi
ness, when Carleton learned of his antici
pated departure and-had him arrested.
Carleton was a depositor in the bank, and
it is thought that he has taken legal steps
i . , . , . . ,
to detain Patterson believing that the
transactions of the bank were crooked,
Perino Brown, father-in-law of Patterson,
who was President of the same bank, it is
stated, will be arrested on the same
charge to-morrow. Patterson has given
bond, and will be held to answer the
charges. He is one of the representatives
