Plan of Defense.
rSPXCIAL TELEGIAX TO THE DISrATCn.
New York, Dec. la It took only 20
minutes to call the roll of the Presbytery
this afternoon, and then Prof. .Briggs wi
on his feet to begin his defense against the
charges of heresy. The galleries were
crowded with women, who listened intently
to the argument of the accused professor,
and a few of them watched him through
opera glasses as he stood under the pulpit
maintaining, in passionate language, his
right to remain in the Presbyterian church.
An interested observer in the early part of
the afternoon was Mrs. Grover Cleveland,
who sat far back in the body of the church
with her pasFor, l$ev. 'William Merle Smith.
She left about 4 o'clock.
Prof. .Griggs characterized Prosecutor G.
W. F. Birch's argument as not even a seri
ous attempt to prove the charges. He said
it was an amusing resort to heathen theol
ogy. Colonel McCook's argument, said
ProC Briggs, soared into the region of ab
stract thouzht and reminded him of the in
tellectual processes of the scholastic theo
logian. "He did not seem so ranch concerned
about the Holr Scriptures," said Prof.
Briggs, "as he did with his system of dogma.
Poor man! Is his life so steeped in dogma
tic faith that he knows no difference be
tween his Bible, his creed and his system of
dogma? He would deliberately choose a
dogma rather than a Christian life."
The Trosecution Assailed Bitterly.
Prof. Briggs said that the prosecution had
flagrantly disobeyed the instructions of the
Presbyterv in their arguments. First, Dr.
Birch used the Scripture relerences lo prove
that his interpretation of the inaugural ad
dress was correct, instead of applying them
to the charzes. The argument of Dr. Birch.
said Trot. Briggs,6hriveled up into nothing
ness, for what he tried to prove he had no
right to prove. Colonel McCook had also
deliberately introduced into his speech
arguments on charges sixth and seventh,
which had been stricken out by the Pres
bytery, and in this Prof. Briggs maintained
he was guilty of contempt of court.
The Presbyterian Church, Prof. Briggs
said, has a double rule of faith the Bible
and the Westminster Confession. When
ever the latter was not in harmony with the
former it must yield. Holy Scripture is the
infallible test of every statement in the
"Westminster standards, and no man can be
proved guilty of heresy or sin Tho is not in
conflict with" the Holy Scripture. At the
tame time there are many statements of
Scripture.asthe doctrine of the millennium,
which are not comprehended in the system
of doctrine, and are not, therefore, a pare of
the church rule of faith.
"ot Connd to the Confession.
Tne formula of subscription taken by
ministers and elders did not bind them to
every statement in the confession, but only
to the system of doctrine contained therein.
"In these ordination vows," said the Pro
fessor, "are wrapped up all the principles
for nhich American Presbyterians had been
contending from the beginning liberal sub
scription to the system of doctrine, a gen
eral approval of the Presbyterian mode of
government and discipline, and the neces
sity of piety and religious experience in the
ministry. This system of doctrine, in our
terms of subscription, means the system of
doctrine contained in the Westminster Con
fession, and that system is composed of the
essential and necessary "articles. The Pres
byterian Church in the United States of
America has never attempted to set forth
what are the essential and necessary articles
ot the Westminster Confession, and, there
fore, there is room for considerable differ
ence of opinion ith reference to any doc
trine which may be in debate."
Prof. Briggs taid a right decision as to
these essential could be arrived at by
certain historical principles. There were
three ecclesiastical rules of faith of the
P.-csbyterian Church the Confession, the
Larger Catechism and the Shorter Cate
chism. One War to Kule Out Doctrines.
ProC Briggs maintained that nothing
should be regarded as essential which is not
contained in all three systems. This prin
ciple would rule out of the amended charges
all but two of the seven doctrines stated to
"The Westminster standards stereotyped
the doctrines of the Westminster divines of
the seventeenth century," said ProCBriggs.
"We have subscribed to their system and to
the essential and necessary articles of-their
confession. But we have "not subscribed to
any other dogmatic systems, or to the
essential and necessary articles in any other
tj stems, whether these arc stated in printed
books or are bubbling up in speculative
minds. It is necessary for" the Presbytery
to consider that they have no authority to
determine what is essential and necessary
according to their views of what is essential
and necessary in the present state of the
ology; but they must determine what is
essential and necessary according to the
Westminster Confession of Faith. The
Westminster system is the rule of judg
ment, not any other system of theologv
which may possibly rule vour faith and
As to the Confession of Faith.
"The Confession of Faith," continued
Prof. Briggs, '"represents that we must dis
tinguish in Scripture itself between the es
sential and the non-essential. This section,
which the prosecution disregard in their
charges, teaches that Holy Scripture is
for all alike, rich and poor, wise and ig
norant, and that all may attain such suf
ficient understanding of it as is ncceis-iry
unto salvation. Therefore, a dog.
matic faith is unnecessary unto
salvation It is not necessary that
anyone should accept or hold any confes
sion of faith, or any catechism, oranycreed,
or any of the dogmatic utterances of the
Church in order to salvation. They may
one and all be unknown to the reader of
the Scriptures, and yet he may gain from
Scripture itself 'sufficient understanding of
those things which are necessary to be
known, believed and observed for salva
tion.' "Scripture needs no fences to inclose it,
no breastworks to defend it, no champion
to espouse itc cause, no dogma to bar it in.
It is entirely sufficient of itself alone to
convince, persuade, enlighten and save
mankind. It is the achievement in part of
the modern disciple of Biblical theology
that it presents the teachings ot Holy Scnp-
, lure in their Biblical proportions, thus
showing the exaggerations of the tradi
tional dogma, its insertions of unscriptural
iCogma in its systems, its neglect of im-
portant Scriptural doctrine, and its depres
sion of essential doctrine of Holy Scrip
ture. A Conflict "With Tradition.
"There is thus a conflict of Bible with
tradition which must go on in a lire and
death struggle until tradition is once more
defeated and destroyed. The modern
discipline of symbolics shows the origin of
the Westminster symbols, interprets them
bv the writings of their authors and the
history of opinion in their time, and thus
expdses the counterfeit theology which has
been palmed fff upon modern Presbyterians
by those who claim to be Puritans but are
not, who claim to be sound in the faith,
when they have abandoned the Westminster
faith, and who are simole and alone
scholastic Calvinists of the school of
Francis Turretine, of Genera, with a streak
of modern evangelicanism.
"The Presbyterian Church is a church
with a constitution. This constitution is a
compact between the ministers who consti
tute the Church. It restricts the ministers
who subscribes to it. He must hold to the
essential and necessary articles of that con
stitution or he has no lawful place in the
church. Bat the constitution also restricts
the church and protects the minister. The
church cannot change its constitution, ex
cept in a constitutional way, giving an op
portunity to all who dissent from the
change to withdraw. The church cannot
impose upon its ministry anything that is
unconstitutional or anything to which he
does not agree on his entrance upon the
ministry or in subsequent revision of the
An Appeal Likely to the Courts.
"If yon should violate the constitution of
the church and break the compact made
with me and others at our ordination, we
would seek relief in the synod and general
assembly, and if the general assembly sus
tain the violation of that compact with me
and those who agree with me and do any
wrong which the civil courts can lawfully
recognize, we might be compelled to seek
relief in the civil courts of our country."
ProC Briggs then took up charges!, and
IL, which accuse him of teaching heresies
in his statements that the church and
the reason are with the Bible fountains of
divine authority. Of the Scripture citations
brought in as evidence that the Holy
Scripture is the rule of faith and practice,
he argued that man v of tbem were irrelevant
or incorrectly rendered in the King James
version. Kone of the passages cited was in
conflict, Prof. Briggs said, with the declara
tions ot his inaugural.
'lam not obliged," he said, "to defend
my inaugural against these extracts from
Holy Scripture and confession, as you have
already ruled. I am simply and alone
called upon to defend myself against the al
legations that my declarations are against
the two essential doctrines mentioned in
the charge, namely, 'that Holy Scripture
is most necessary,' and that 'Holy Scrip
ture is the rule of faith and practice.'"
Prof. Briggs will resume his argument at
2 o'clock to-morrow afternSon.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCB.1
New Yoke, Dec. 13. A trial involving
the business methods of Colonel Elliott F.
Shepard is attracting great attention here.
It is a suit brought by Frank S. Gray, ex
business manager of the Mail and Express, to
recover from the Colonel $18,145 for breach
ofcontiact. The main feature of the case was
the production of a letter written by
Colonel Shepard in which he indorsed his
check for $5,000 and directed his business
manager to use the money in procuring from
the Police Commissioners the contract for
political advertising valued at about $15,000.
The trial to-day was resumed with more
ot the direct examination of Colonel
Shepard by his lawyer, John E. Parsons.
"Was anything ever saiaby you, Colonel,
about bribing Commissioners French and
McClave?" asked Mr. Parsons.
"ifothingl" exclaimed the Colonel
"Did you know them?"
"Yes, knew them to be reputable citizens
of good standing."
Ingersoll Boasts Sir. Shepard.
When Colonel Ingersoll took the witness
he took up Mr. Shepard's letter and read it
sentence by sentence. The examination
was as follows:
Q. Bo not have any trip-ut). Bo not use
the check until necessary. You can prob
nblv have this amount added to the bid. s.iv
$20,000." Sow Colonel Shepard, what did you
mean by the words, "this amount?" A.
Whatever the amount of the Commission
would be. "
Q In other words, you can probably have
the amount of the commission ndded to the
bill. Was that In your inindt A. I have
Just said so.
Q. Then your Intention was that the city
should pay the commission? A. My inten
tion was to instruct Mr. Gray.
Q. No, no. Was It your intention that the
city should pay the commission? A. It was
not, In my mind, I had no intention about It.
Now you are coing Into a process of reason
In:;. Colonel Ingersoll looked at him with in
tense amusement, and said, "No, you might
not be at home there."
A upple oi laughter went throuch the
courtioom and Colonel Sbepaid looted
creatly discomfited. Colonel Ingersoll now
looked the witness full in the face and asked
very delibomtely: "Bldn't you want it

The Editorial Colonel Is Angry.
Colonel Shepard flashed an indignant
glance at him, clenched his fists and
pounded them on the arms of his chair, as
he said; "Not at all, sir. No, sir. I meant
Has confidential Instructions to Mr. Gray."
Q. I see. Who had the power to add it to
tne mil? A Now you ask me too much.
Q. Who did you think had power, when
you wrote thi9 memorandum? A. When I
wrote that memorandum I intended that
Mr. Gray should get as large a rate for the
advertising as he could agree upon with this
negotiator, this solicitor.
Q. You do not aulte understand me? A I
do understand you, but you are asking
mo for things that were not In my mind.
Q. Let us see "You can probably have
this amount added to the bill, say $20,000."
Who did ynu at that time think could add it
to the bill? A. I thought that Mr. Gray
could charge a sufficient price for the adver
tising so that the amount or the advertising
would be raised. Ho might or might not.
This was intended for him, to be conveyed,
to no one elso.
Q. Now, you say, and I want to call your
attention to it all the time so that you know
what you aro doing: "You can probably
have this amount lidded to the bid, say $20.
000; try lti they are weak and yield easilv."
Whom do you intend by the word "they?"
A. The avertlsing agent.
Q And you put the name in the plural?
A. I thought it was a Arm.
Colonel Ingersoll was srinntng again.
"You did not say so," he said. "Oh, it was
indefinite in my mind," answered the wit
ness. Q. What did you mean by sayinc "You can
probably have this amount added to the bid,
say $20,000; try it; they are weak and yield
easily?" Did you mean that he was to add
the commission to the bill, and get the pay
from the cltv? A. I have answered that
question abont a dozen times. My intention
in this matter was to suggest to Mr. Gray
some of the methods by which ho might ret
a good, fair, reasonable, lull price for the
advertising, and I did not think of these
things you aro suggesting.
Ingersoll Becomes a Shade Serious.
Q. I see. And one of the methods was to
add the commission to the bill, and you
thought this could be done because the
agent was weak. Now I will ask you.Colonel
Shepard (and Mr. Ingersoll's faco became
grave), didn't you mean the commissioners,
when you said "they?" Tho witness flared
up at once,half rose in his seftt.and pounded
on the judge's desk with his first. "No, sir;
no, Blr," he repeated. "Under no circum
stances; under no circumstances."
Q. Bo you swear to the jury tnat you aid
not mean to pay that money to the commis
sioners? A. .No, sir.
"They are weak," said Colonel Ingersoll,
in persuasive tones.
t is a most atrocious falsehood to trv to
Mr. GraJ- was then called in rebnttal ot
Colonel Shepard's testimony. He said his
refusal to do Colonel Shepard's dirtv work
was the only difference they had upon
which Shepaid could base a" claim ot in
compatibility. Colonel Ingersoll asked the witness about
Colonel Shepard's charge that he (the
witness) had been drunk. "He did not
know anything about it," declared the wit
ness. Shepard and His Favorite Brink.
"He was drunk himself. I have drunk
with Colonel Shepard at his office, at his
home, and at the Everett House. One
night when he had presided over the meet
ing of the emancipation proclamation, he
said he felt weighted with care, and we
drove to the Everett House for a drink. He
called for a long rfass, filled it half full of
whisky, filled it lull of soda, and repeated
that and "
Judge Park interrupted the witnes to
ask Colonel Ingersoll how much further in
this line he was going. Colonel Ingersoll
replied that he thought it had gone far
enough, and he looked at the ' witness
Upon re-cross-examination by Mr. Parson
the witness admitted having aspersed Col
onal Shepard's character to Colonel John
A. Cockerill. "I told Colonel Cockerill
that Shepard was as crooked as a dog's leg,
and that that was the reason I could not re
main on the Mail and Express. If I know a
drunken man when I see him, I have seen
Colonel Shepard drunk."

Senator Jones and an Indian Delegate
Speak at the Conference.
Brussels, Dec. 13. At the sitting to
day of the International Monetary Confer
ence, Sir Guildford D. Houldswortb, one of
the two delegates representing the Indian
Government, protested against the obstruc
tions offered by the British delegates
at this and previous conferences. But for
the tactics employed by the representa
tives of Great Britain, the currency
question would have been settled long
ago. Sir Guildford declared that
the situation in Great Britain had greatly
changed since November 22, the date of the
first meeting of the conference, and he sug
gested that the conference adjourn for a
week to enable the British Government to
reconsider the whole question.
Sir C. Rivers Wilson, English delegate)
replied at length. Senator Jones made a
long address on bi-metallism. He argued
that the increase ot silver production had led
ever to the revival of industry and commerce.
The demonetization of silver had caused a
disastrous fall of prices throughout the
civilized world. The prosperity of every
country depended upon the stability of the
value of its money. The Uninterrupted
employment of the people could be accom
plished only through the instrumentality of
time contracts which often deferred the
date of payment for many years. Any in
crease in the value of the money on which
the terms of contracts were based, bore
down crushingly upori employers.
