ASD BIS DILUTED FORM OF
Condemned by Presbyterians as Ir
reconcilable With Their Dogma
Te the ldltora of the Appeal:
la a former communication I at
tempted to (how (he dilemma in which
the A hbal'i critic would place some
of the most tmtnent I'reebyterian
theologians. The critic's potion ia
that no f-rrai cf the evolution doctrine
can be reconciled with the Presbyteri
an creed not even Dr. Woodrow'a
"diluted" form and that if evolution
be proved true, we must perforce give
up the immoiUlitv of the toul, the
fall in Adam, and "ihe echeme cf sal
vation." Againtt this position I have
presented, iohtead of technical argu
ment, this fact, that if our critic be
correct, then many of the mo?t honor
ed theologians of our church aiein
the dilemma of Baying that there is
auch a thing as "tbeistic evolution,"
and that such evolution is entirely
compatible with the Presbyterian
eretd. If ihe amiable critic is correct,
they have "spoken" as Moses did on
one occasion, "unadvisedly with their
lips." My position is not weakened
by the tact that some of these theo
logians are of the opinion that evolu
tion is not proved is, in fact, or may
be scientifically disproven, for they
can be suspected of no bias in favor of
the new opinion. My liet could be
ex ended indefinitely by adding ench
names at Pro). Oalderwcod of the Edin
burg Uaivertity (Presbyterian.) and
from the Church of England, the
Bishop of Eieter, but I forbear.
2. Now, let us see the dilemma into
which the appeal's critic will drive
some of the moat illustrious scientists
of our time. The critic thinks that
no form of the evolution hypothesis
can ba made to harmonii with sach
fundamental doctrines of Christianity
as has been named above, and also
that the "diluted" form of Prof.
Woodrowis disowned by "science."
Borne of ua heard such things from
ecclesiastical eenrcts ad abundantiam.
Ve y well; how dors the statement
affect the position of eminent men of
science who happen also to be Chris
tians! Of these, I shall name more par
ticularly three whoso pre-eminence as
gtiers'Sts none will ditronte Prof.
Dana, the geohgist; Prof. Gray, the
bounitit, and Prof. Joseph Leconte,
of the University of California, and
and author of many scientific works,
a paleontologist second only to Dana
in world wide reputation.
These three scientieta are all cf
them known as decided, active Chris
tian!. Dr. Leconte ia a Presbyterian,
and Profs. Dana and Gray Congrega
tiooa Lts (Evangelical), but one short
bud removed from us. As devout be
lievers in the Bible and se'ence evolu
tionists, they must necessarily believe,
of conrae, in the harmony between
their scientific beliefs and their Chris
tian cr?ed; and, furthermore, they
tntul believe injutl tome tuch rtwmcifta
tion at Dr. Woodrow proposes. Differ
ing perhaps on miner points, they
must, of courie, hold in the main with
him. This is too plain to require
Now as to Prof. Leconte, who
through bis "Geology" is teaching
nis scientific opinions in many acade
mies and colleges all over the country,
among them in Preebvterian Church
schools as for him, I happen to know
that after rending Dr. Woodrow's now
famous "Address on Evolution," he
said: "I can adopt every word as my
"What of Dana, confessedly the
first of living paleontologists? The
fiist, I say, not only in America, but
in Europe alto. 01 this fact a friend
not long ego bad a most pleasing teeti
monial. Meeting the geologist of
Saxony, my friend said : "I have the
honor to addrers the most eminent
paleontologist of the world." No,
no," cried the great German with en
thusiasm, "you forget Dana. While
he lives he is the first." Dana con
cludes hie Manual of Geology by a care
ful comparison between the tirbt chap
ter of Genesis and "the record made
in the rocks." His main proposition
is that if science shows that Genesis is
true, the Mosaic record is thereby
proved to be diviuelv inspited, for no
metely human intelligence could, at
that early day, have possibly known
the facts which modern research
brines to the liirht. And his conclu
sion teminda one of the ecstatic about
wi h which the immortal Kepler
hailed his great discovery: "I can
th nk the thoughts of God t" Dana
saysin conclusion: "The record in the
Bible is, therefore, profoundly philo
sophical in the scheme of creation
which it presents. It is br.tb true and
divine. It is a declaration of author
ship, both of creation and the Bible,
on tne first page of the sacred volume,
"There can be no real conflict be
tween the two books of the Great
Author. Both are revelations made
by Him to man the earlier telling of
God made harmonies, cumin? ud
from the deep pact and rising to their
mgmwnenman appeared; t be later
teaching man's relations to his Maker
and epeakirg of lofiier harmonies in
the eternal future." Dana't Manual
of Geology, revised edition, pp. 649, 850
Prof. Gray, of Harvard, is, I am
credibly informed, the highest living
authority in his own special depart
ment, botany. His devout mind has
long dwelt upon the conflict between
scientists and theologians, and many
of his contributions to the press have
been gathered into a volume etyled
Darwinians It is a pity that our
reading friends should have been at
trac ed so exclusively to the religious
diecussions of Huxley, Tyndall and
Spencer, all of them skeptics, while
the able writings of such Christian
scientists as Gray are not known.
One reason which occurs to me is that
many ol Prof. Gray's papers appeared
during or just after the great civil
war, when communication between
the two sections was greatly inter
runted. The chief topic of Prof. Gray's Dar
winians (published by D. Apple ton &
Co., New York) is the effect, or sup
posed effect, of the new scientific opin
ion upon religious faith, and especially
upon the argument for the existence
of an Almighty Person, the Creator of
nil things. His proposition ia that
"evolution" leaves the "design argu
ment" in full force. Bat for the mas
terly skill with which our world re
nowned botanist handles the theme
I must refer those who love strong
force put forth in classic and forcible
English to the volume of itself. There
lies on my desk as I write Prof. Gray's
address before the theological clasees
in Yale College (Charles ficribner's
Son?, New York, 1880), in which the
great scieutict deals with the relations
of "evolution" and the Bible. In the
addrefs he cites with approval the say
ing of the late scientist, Clerk-Maxwell,
that having examined all agnos
tic theories he found that "they one
and all needed a God to make them
workable" (p. 91). Bepudiating, on
scientific granc da alone, the idea that
man descended front monkeys, In
which be says "so few evolutionists"
agree with him (p. 101), hes'aies: "If,
however, I decline to regard man's
origin as exceptional in the senso of
directly supernatural, you will
understand tbat it is bscause, nnder
my thoroughly theis'io conception of
nature, and my belief in mediate crea
tion, I am at a loss to know what I
shonld mean by the exception. I do
not allow myself to believe that im
mediate creation makes mau's origin
more divine." pp. 99, 100. Oa pp.
1C2, 103 he deals with the question of
the immortality of the soul, showing
(1) that the suit same difficulties and
puzz'es 8B to "When was the siul ad
ded ?"com3 op with regtrd tj each
and every individual, as with regard
to the series, or the first man. (2)
The amezing interval between human
faculties and those of brntes: "So we
may well deem th'S a ep?cial g ft, the
gift beyond recall, in wnich ail hops
is enhhrioed. None of m have any
scientific or philosophical explan'-tion
to offor til to how it came to be added
to what we share with the hrut.-i that
perish; but it pnts man into ano'her
world than thi", both btr, a:d wit.h
the aid of eonie evolutionary ideas,
we may add hereafter." Having
emphasized the cardinal fact that
GhrLtiaiha sum and substance of
Ohristiauitj Christ as God incarnate
in our human nature lie affirms His
own hearty acquiescence i the
creeds in which all Christians, Ro
manist and Protest nt, unite, the
"Apostle's," so called, and Ithat o!
NUsei, as being in no whh aff 'Cted by
his belief in the scientific theory of
evolution, pp. 108. 109
Had I space left I would like to
cite the letter of Prof. Brewer, a col
league of Gray in the "School of
Science" at Harvard, in whica he
states (1) that so far as the religious
faith of "working naturalists", i. .
original investigators into nature. U
concerned, he believes upon expensive
acquaintance, that a greater propor
tion of tbem a '6 Christians man ere
to be found in other secular vocations,
as law or medicine; (2) that among
his associates he finds mony heliavert'
Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Meth
odists, Baptists, etc., who find no
more difficulty in the new opinion
about evolution th in in the modern
astronomy or geology.
Theru remains one more point
nnder this head, and that ia : Ho w did
Charles Darwin personally regard his
evolutionary science to be related to
religious bslief ? No Christian can re
call without sorrow Darwin's letter to
a German student, written ehortly
before ' his death, in which,
he stated that he did not
k-ow what to think of Jeem
Christ he had not investigated his
claims sufficiently or words to that
eflect. Alas I alamhat in the rush and
hurry cf his iabo ious life ho should
have omitted that duty. But all the
world except a fiiw know that Dar
win was a ttieist, h believed in a per
sonal, Almighty Ort-a'or. Here are
thB very words, with which ha closes
the hook which bus given him immor
tal fame: "Tbere is grandeur in this
view of lifo, with its several pow
ers, having been originally breathed by
tki Creatoriato a few forme or into one;
and that, while this planet has gone
cycling on according to the fixed law
of gravity, from so simple a beginning
endless tonus most beautiful and most
wonderful have been, and are being,
evolved. "ungmoj apeeut, lattpnge.
Now, I repeat tbat, whilst as a min
ister ot the Uosppl I have little con
cern about the scientific truth of evo
lution, I have a deep intareot in its re
lations or supposed relatione to reli
glous faith. And, therefore. I call at
tention to the fact that if the Appeal's
critic be correct in saying tbat no f rui
of evolutiou can be reconciled with
the Bible he puts luaov of the verv
greatest scientists in a dilema, the di
lemma ot tailing to see on tan one band
that evolution in all its forms is incon
sistent with religious faith, and on the
other that Dr. Woidrow'a "diluted"
view (or another of the eauie. eort
which makes all due allowance fjr the
inspiration of the Bib'e for all its doc
tunes) is inconsistent wilh that
"science" of which they are the chief
exponents end lights in our aga, the
very men who, by means of their text
books in various branches of science,
aro educating our song and danghters.
These considerations exert a quieting
influence on my mind, und leave me
fully assured that whatever of truth
tberd may be in the new s ientifis
opinion will be found by aud by to be
perfe rtly consistent with faith in
Chris'. wm. a. idoqs.

bave mora interest for the public than
the scenes of the trial. This morning
Chambers street and the approaches
to tbe brown stone court houte of the

Under Sheriff Sexton and Order of Ar
rest Clerk Martin. There was not the
hail fellow appearance about McQuade
thRt characterised his appearanc3 on
Friday. He took his old seat and
very quietly waited for the hour of his
sentence. At 11 a.m. Recorder 8myth
entered the courtroom and took his
seat on the bench. With the mem
ory of the Jaehne case tbe audience
had the idea that there was no hope
lor MtQiade and that he would at
once receive his sentence. The Dis
trict Attorney with h:s assistants and
the couneel for McQiade came in
together. After a short conversation
with Mr. Newcombo the Recorder,
rapped on his s and for order. Mr.
Newcombe asked that tbe proceeding
of Friday be read. The request was
granted. After the reading Geo. Tracy
said: "Sentence having been moved,
we move an arrest of sentence because
the indictment was on insufficient
ground and that the evidence was not
sufficient to convict the defendant with
the crime charged ; btcause of the mis
chirgs by the Court to the Jury; be
cause cei tain jurors were illegally ex
cluded from the box ; because the trial
was suspended D. cemher 14th for tue

who signed certain affidavit before
and in the presence of the jury as sot

MOVK THAT TBE VERDICT Ba SKT A81DI
on the grounds set down in this affi
davit, because the court admitted im
proper evidence against the defendant
and excluded other proper evidence
in his favor.
Gen. Tracy also moved that the offi
cers who had charge ot the jury dur
ing the trial ba called and sworn.
This was on the strength of state
ments made to them by a Mr. O'Brien
tot':e efiect that on December 15;h
the jury were taken to tbe Aetor
Huiib to Innch bv sn unusual route,
past the office of the New York World,
in front of which was displayed a bul
letin reading: "Has a trait r crept in?
Juror Rosenberg charged with being
a friend of the boo ilers "
Mr. Martin in teply read an affidavit
of Juror Rosenberg denying that he
had been influenced in any way in
favor or against the defendant by cut
side influence, but that

The nlfidavit also Btateil that he was
not aware that there had been any

the jury had brought in its verdict
He saw Nesbit and Vickermann in
court, but did not even suspect ibat
the papers they signed had any refer
ence to him, and there was no talk re
trardinir it a mono? the inrvmrn.
Recorder Smyth said he thought it
wus his duty to tests more than usual
caution in all the details of this case.

dation of the jury,

and the Orurt waa satisfied that tbe
interests of the prisoner had been
carefully guarded, ID the mattrr of

pautiloons packets. "The defease."
remarked Mr. Tracy, "has nothing to
say why the sentence should hot be
pronounced against him;
WE BELT UPON HIS fJBMSB GOOD ClIAB
and the esteem ia which he is stiil
held by his neighbors and acoualnt
ances who are many of them here
now to ask for the leniency of tbe
The Recorder said in substance:
"ABTHPB M QUADS, YOU HAVE BKEN
FAIBLY AND JUSTLY CONVICTED
of bribery. You were elected to per-
iorm a puottc trust. Instead ol doing
so you violated that trust. Your char
acter as a bueiness man, citiaan, father,
nuBDana is good. I nave sympathy lor
your wife and family. You should
Lave considered them before you did
wrong. You did not add to the crime
of which yon have been convicted, as
Jaehne did, by taking tbe stand and
committing perjury. I have raason to
believe that yon received as much
money as Daffy did, $10,000. That
money is not yours; it is not tbe prop
erty of your family. If it is left with
them it will work the inevitable re
sult of ill gotten gain. I would adv'se
you to give np and pay back to tbe
city the money which you received,
and I have no doubt it would work to
your benefit The sentence of the Court
is that you be
CONFINED IN STATE FBIBON AT HABD
for a term of seven years, and that yon
par a fine of $5000.''
During tbe sentence McQuade stood
np, his arms folded across his bosom
in the manner habltaal to him. His
chin was a little elevated, his head in
clined a little to one side and his brow
knitted, tbe whole poise and the ex
pression of the face being that of one
listening to a voice difficult to hear. At
its close he sat down, turned imme
diately, and with a business like air,
entered into a conversation with Gen.
Tracy, ss if he were discussing a bar
gain just cononmmated.
After the sentence was given the
audience dhpereed, McQuade going
