TTbi deposition of Dr. McGlyna will
$ve a freeh impetas to ths Georga
movement and will be taken to mean
that the church is, after all, opposed
to the wage-faming c'a'aea.

we publish this morning na'.ara'lr
The West era Union and Bjlt'more
and Ohio Tebgraph Companies hare
at last reached a common basis of
agreement, and after te 1st of Janu
ary will advanc9 pricts. This looks
Terr like another telegraph monopoly.
It now appears that the Rev. Cyrus
A. Bartol, the B iston preacher, who
ao vicioaUy and persistently assailed
President Cleveland for bringing an
action is test the validity of the Bsll
telephone patent, is a stockholder in
the Bill Company. Hisox was gored.
W publish this morning a com
munication from the Rev. Drs.' B jggs
and Daniel, in answer to that of Dr.
Witherapoon, published iu yesterday's
ArriAL, which ia, we hope, the last of
a long and too heated controversy.
The public cries, "hold, enough."
Thi Democrats of the IIoubb, now
that Mr, Randall adtaita the necessity
for it, should be a unit for tariff
reform. Ttey should not permit
themselves to be diverted from their
purpose by the promises or offers of
the tariff Republicans who are work
ing in the Interest o! the monopolist?.
Let us by a'l means have a revision of
Sons of the RepuYlcan papeis in
sist that it would be an "unprecedent
ed proceeding" t.) elect a man Speaker
of the House whose sent is contested.
Very well, then the Democrats of the
neat House will make a precedent,
and it will be a very eo:d one, by
electing Mr. Carlisle as Speaker. Mr.
Carlisle's election cannot be defeated
because the fpoliatiocLU have in
duced Mr. Tooebe tj "make a con
test." In his autobiography ju-t isjued
-Gen. George B. McClellau aesetts that
the real object of. the Republican
leaden during the civil war was "not
the permanent restoration of theUnion,
but the permanent ascendency of the
party," even at the sacrifice of the
TJnioa. He also asserts that Secre
tary Stanton was "in the treasonable
conspiracy." The truth sometimes
has a long way to travel, but it will
find itj way to the surface.
Thi visit of Gov. Fairchild to Mem
-phis, brief though it was, was iin
proved by hi in up to the hst moment,
He visited many of the leading indua
tries and was especially pleased with
our reboots, the Market Street partlc
u'.arly, where be found bright, alert
schokra responsive to careful training
by oonscientioDs and painstaking
"teacheis. The Goveino-, who is
statesman of much experience, sa d his
own State, remarkable for its public
schools, could not surpass this, which
we haaard nothing in saying surpasaes
any private school in the Siato.
Hkbbditaby tendencies were never
better exemplified than in the case of
Gan. Scott's daughter Virginia and
his two granddaughters, who preferred
the peace of a convestuul life to the
excitement' of the world of fashion
The General's eldest daughter, V
ginia, the most beautiful of that band,
of beautiful eietors, took the veil at
the convent ia Georgetown, D. C,
nearly forty years ago, and died there
a cloistered nun. The second daugh
ter, Marca!la,or,ai she was commonly
called, E'.la Scott, married Charles
Carroll McTiivUh, a distinguished rep
resentative of two. of Maryland's hi6
toric families, and saw her eldest
daughter, a very lovely girl, rectived
into one of the Maryland convents a
few years since, and within a few days
Another dauzbter lias (orsaKen the
world, and sailed for Europe to be-
come one of the order of Oar ru elite
nuns of Brussels.
The removal of Dr. Wocdrow from
the Perkins professorship in the The
ological Seminary of South Caiolina
closes a controversy that hps excited
widespread attention. Regretting as
we do, that a scientist of admittedly
great ability should have brought
upon himself the humiliation recorded
' by our correspondent, we are con
strained to admit that the church has
been consistent in its course. It could
not consent to even the diluted evolu-
' tion of Dr. Woodrow without en dan
gerirjf the "tcheme of salvation." It
is impossible to reconcile the Darwin
ian theory of evolution with Christian
doctrine. Upon Adam's fall the whole
theory of the church rests. "Through
Adam's fall we sinned all," and that
fall made the atonement neceFsary,
3 the church teache, resting upon
Scripture. According to tDe Darwin
Jan theory there could not have bean
tan Adam. The steps in evolution
"were gradient and simuliaueous
through generations.ond the boundary
Iwtween the earliest man and the arb
r.'. aland prehensile creature who pre
cluded him must have been crossed ai
th same moment bv perhaps tiun
(Inula of tbounands, mayhap tiillions.
This excludes the possibility of Dr.
Woodrow's theory ol God's cot.f jirirg
g soul upon, atypical homo at the mo
mint when he had iiftiniteiy taken
the irpct position and discarded the
tail. Trie Prejbytoriau Cliuteh is
right jn condemning the Doctor's
theory, which is also repudiated by

THE REV. DR. WOIMOV
REMOTEI) FROM THE PERKINS
la the Theological Seminary of South
Carolina by a Unanimous Vote
of the Board of Directors.
srioiAL to tbs rriiL.l
Columbia, 8. O., December 10. -The
prolong ed theological controversy ever
the Woodrow ev lutirm question,
which has auitated tbe Southern Pres
byterian Cuurch I t the pait two
yars, and rt suited in the prac'ical
closing of thn theological seminary in
this citv, was brought t its final stJge
last night The church, through its
highest councils, bai maintained (hat
the theory of evo'ution, held
by Dr. Wood-ow, whs contrary
to the teachings of Scripture, ss
interpreted in the standards of the
Pre sbj terian Church. Dr. Woodrow,
on his part, has asseverated and main
tained that his teachings were not an
scriptural or heretical, and has there
fore declined to resign his connection
with the seminary under such a
charge, and has insisted that the it sua
raieed by his accruers should ba met
and adjusted by the proper tribunals
of the church, worse judg
ment alone could vindicate or con
demn him. The four Syncds
which control the seminary have suc
cessively pronounced against Dr.
Woodrow, and formally instructed the
Board of Direct rs to request his res
ignation of the Perkins professorship
(if natural science in connection with
revelation, and in cass of his failure
to acquieece, then to declare that chair
in the seminary vacant. Pursuant t
these instructions the Bonrd of Direc
tors met in this city yesterday
evening and edonted a resolu
tion formally requesting tbe reS'
ignation of Dr. Woourow, and
informed him through a commu
tes cf their action. Dr. Wood o v, in
waiting, promptly declined to accede
10 the req iejt, whereupon the board
nnammonsly adopted a rrwlution de
claring tbe chair vacant. The board
then elected the Rev. Dr. J. L. Girar
deau, of this city, proL'isor of did c ic
and polemic theology, and decided to
postpone further elections of profess
ors until the ur t Wednesday in Feb
ruary, when the bnard will meet in
The chairs remeHisg to be filled are

errises of Soriptnre, pirtorat theology

Toe mem tors of trie board express
themselves as hopeful of the future of
the seminary, which they expect to
reopen next Bapiemo t.
In conversation with the Appeal
representative, Dr. Woodrow said that
he accepted the action of tbe board as
the voice of the dominant body of the
church ia the matter, and however
much he may feel that he Tins been
misunderstood, misrepresented ai;d
mit judged, he will make no resistance
to tne will ol tbe enure j, now for the

MESSRS. DANIEL AND BOGUS
HAKE ANSWER TO DK. WltUKH-
And Weave a Garland for Blm That
He Will of Coarse Prompt
To the Bditori of the Appeal :
The card of Dr. T. D. Witherspoon,
introduced by your correspondent,
aieinpms, into your issue cf De
cumber 10. 1886, has come to otir no
tice. We submit the follow. tg reply:
me anonymous "Mempuia rf
q'iirea from us no attention. H-
end his prlncip.il are in a di
lemma. Either Dr. Witherspoon
autnorizau "jyiempiiia to mtro'
dues that card into the Appbal
or he did not. Oa the former hyjv.rtev
ess, Dr. Witherapoon is hidden be
hind "Meuapbia ; or the latter."M?m-
phb" is bidden behind Dr. Wither
spoon end en anonymous furniture,
vv hen tha duo shall have defined their
relation each to the other, we ma7
consider whether ''Memphis" requires
any attrition irora us. At present, we
are quite sure mat ne uoei not.
2. Dr. Wi'herspoon is in error in
supposing pnd renresenting that we
had msde any "attack" upon any
memner oi Jouisvuie rresbytery. We
simply s ii'ed, with reference to those
four members out of the majoiity of
eight, certain well known and indis
putable facts, namely, that one of
them (Dr. WUnersnoon) was the
paster of the lain-ly of one of
the defendants, that another
was related to one of the defendants
by marriage; that anotaer (having a
cniid or cnuuren in tne enk'e or
strvics of Conversed Co. ) was bound to
them by ties of business and friend
ship; and that a fourth, as was veiy
generally remarked, was laboring
under certain nervous d isorders. The: e
facts Dr. Witherspoon has not denied.
but 8epms to obiot very seriously
to our having given them pub
licity. Why? We were content
merely to make them known;
and we left It to the public, upo'i
knowing the If.cti, to judge as to
whether those facts might not have
"unconsciously" influenced, to a great
er or less extent, those four out of the
eight constituting tbe majority. Had
Dr. Witherspoon, writing nneler evi
dent excitement, taken ti'ne to give
due weight to that word "unconscious
ly," ne would fcsve seen that we im
puted no evil intent to anv Pres
byter, but refsrred merely to thoss
pcsaiuitiucs oi natnrai tinman feeling
to which the best of mmkind, includ
ing Dr. WitLerspoon, are subject. It
is irue that we did not challenge the
ngnt oi any oi tnrse lour to sit as
judges. To have done so, all
can see, would have be?n to excite
against our cause, por-sibly, prejudice.
We are fres to say, however, (if in all
meekness we may be permitted to ex
press an opinion) tbat all of those
jurors who had peculiar relations to
toe defendants including tbe pastor,
Dr Witherspoon ought voluntarily
to have declined to sit as judges. We
are quite cer aln that In any civil
trial they would hsv.i been chil-
lengel. And co judgi would
have ruled that such a challenge
implied the least reflection upon
their honesty. Suiel v Dr. Witherspoon,
when he lecovers from his manifest
exoitH.nent, will admit thr.t his n-iint
me wis not well tak- n, and will ac
knowledge iu a manly way that it im
plies no refl Jcti in up ;'i a juror t) say
that his peaoiul relations to ihe ac
cused may hzve "uiicoiiscio'isiy" in-
nui-n- ea nun.
3. 1 o this fact, that Dr. Witherspoon
to manilestly wrote under excitement
and strong feeling, we attribute wha,
but for this, wa wou'd otherwise v ew
with unbounded amatement, Bamely,
his seeming so to g'ory in what he
pi's before the public as a vindica
tion of the ac us'd. Dr. Wither
apoon has himself made a lasdng
record with rpgard to this mat'er. It
is indelibly wri ten that a certain wit
ness, one of tbe meet prominent citi
zens of Louisville, when asked upon
the stand the names of tboie whom he
had heard reflect up- n the Messrs.Uon
vsrre, gtve Dr. Wiiherspoon's name.
It. ia a'so deoplv ergr.iven upon tl"at
record tha. Dr. Withersporn was him
S'lf afterward upon tbat stand, and
that be did nevor ronrad;ct that wit
ntTS, nor did he himsi-lf ever testify
to the good repntttion of these, his
fiiends. We waited in vain for him
to do bo, and were prepared and au
thorized to refresh his memory
by bringing up one instance,
or more, of his having had
an interview with an eminent
gent'eman to dierns favorably plans
for the retirement of at ltatt one of
the editors, and the euh 'titnt on of a
b itter man. And, es matter of onr
own oer.onal knowledge, we are pre
pared to say tbat after the trial here
Witherspoon called upon us at our
l.mhville borne, and, in the
course of a conversation with respect
to the verdict, eta'ed that he
thought the trial hsd been a great
' revela ion" to the Messrs. Convers?,
by opening their eyes to the amount
of evidence that was brought against
their reputation (or words to that
effsct), they rot dreaming tbat so
many peoplo diftru ted them. Now,
it is perfectly plain that Dr. Witber
spcon must havebi-en rxcited when he
wroe his card ; otherwise,how ronld he
in this card represent the evidence as
so insignificant when in bis interview
with us he had used that word "reve-1-tion"
with respect to tbat very evi
dence. Moreover, in tbat sirae con
versation Dr. WithRiepion dlsrinctly
s'a'ed that whilo a crta n gertleman
(whom be named) was of the
opinion that F. B. Convene
was tne worse man of the two,
he thought that T.E Converse was the
worm He fnr bermore said that at
the me'ing of bis synod certain par
ties l ad piopr-ed to him (Dr. W.)
that if Mr. T. E. C inverse enn id be re
tired he and Mr. F. B. Converse
might bo associated as edi;o-s of the
papis, wh'ch proposition he laugh
ingly said he would not en'ert.dn for
a moment. We agreed with biui thst
he cou'd not do so, but suggested
t'ifit if both were mads s'trtplu
business manager?, he might them
honorably tike editor;'.! control of the
Saper. To this eugstion be made no
ccidrd re-ponse. To make known
these) thiugn giveR ns no p'easure
whatever. But Dr. Wiiher?po:n, by
his excited espousal if tbe cause of
the Mpssra. Converse, has male it in
cumbent upon ns to et'-,to the facts
exact' v as we remember them.'
4. Dr. Withe-spoon says that he did
net make that pstVtic plea frr "a
1 fa of priceless value." Aa the c:mrt
was in secret session, of course we
did not hear him, and our statement
was based on information. It will be
remembered that we carefully guard
ed it by the words "as wt are informed."
Dr. Witberspion's simple statement
that our informant w.is under a
wiong impreson would have been
quite sufficient. His somewhat heated
declaration to that, effect is, of
coure, as with gentlemen always,
with oa conclusive and final. And,
whilst wt cannot see that far a pastor
of tender sensibilities, who had con
stn'ed to sit in the trial, to have made
a plea of that kind, would have dis
honored either his bead or bisteart,
nevertheless, nnder his vehement cor
rection, we withdraw the stat?m?nt
and make humble apology f r having
unintantion lly given him Buch evi
5. Dr. Witherspoon epcak'e of us as
victims cf a "defeat." By the aw of
oppesites, we suppese he" regards the
Viei'sr.. Convter'e (who ree&ived the
"revelation") ta the heroes cf a tri
umph. Gtnt'y, but firmly, pre'-siug
backward up -p our good friend
the a-gonirntnra ad bomineum
running through his dird, we
may sirely lertve it with him
self to say whether all the wealth of
India cou'd tempt him to bind the
garlands of those elevan votes forcon
victioa about his brow and go through
the world shouting victory !
Finally; The HmUhxueMcrn Prrtby
trriznol 'his week says: "We are
compelled to call attention to the fact
that, whatever may b the am mut of
exoneration in the vote of the ma
jority, over such a majirity the first
U'ie the Obacrver niak- s of this ambigu
ous exoneration from the charge of
falsehood is to perpetrate more false
hood." Iu view of which we venture
to suggest to Dr. Witherspoo i that his
seal for matting corrections may, like
cnarity, oegin at tionie.
