Everything Now Ready For the
Three Subjects to Engross General Atten
tionOnly the Galleries to He Open to
the Public Southern ISaptists Have a
Lively Debate Over Foreign Missions.
"WASHINGTON, May 17. Many of the dele
gates to the coming general assembly of
the Presbyterian church have arrived, and
each incoming train brings dozens of them.
Already the streets of the capital show that
some big church event is on the tapis, and
ministers and laymen of all ages and sizes
are seen at many points. Arrangements
for the conference have been practically
completed. What still remains to be done,
however, -was discussed in the morning at
the Ebbitt House by Dr. Bartlett, Dr.
Roberts and the ruling elders of the New
York Avenue Presbyterian church. There
are several important matters to be con
sidered, such as the evenings that are to be
devoted to the various special purposes,
home missions, foreign missions, church
erection, temperance, Sunday school work
and affairs of that sort. It is customary
for each of the special objects to claim a
certain evening for its meeting during the
course of the assembly, and it is not likely
that the committee will make any marked
departures from the established rule.
Everybody Cannot Attend.
Inasmuch as the general public will be
admitted only to the galleries, it will be .
impossible for a very large number of out
siders to attend the sessions of the confer
ence. The entire main floor of the audi
torium is to be reserved for the delegates.
Opportunity will be given the public to
hear and see the notable men during the
evenings, when popular meetings will be
Three subjects will engross the attention
of the assembly. These are the report of
the committee on seminaries, the appeal
of the committee which unsuccessful! v
prosecuted Professor Briggs from the ac
tion of the New York presbytery and the
revision of the confession of faith. A par
tial poll has been made of the ministers of
the church, from the results of which it is
the belief of many that the question of
revision will be relegated to the back
ground for the present, and that therefore
the Briggs case will be the most important
and interesting topic of consideration.
This latter case has been brought so prom
inently before the public that the outcome
will be watched with intense interest
Southern ISaptists Adjourn.
Nashville, May 17. The Southern Bap
tist convention has adjourned sine die.
Before adjournment Dr. Boatwright pre
sented a report that the convention's mis
sionaries in north China had withdrawn
from the foreign mission board's support
and started on a new enterprise for them
selves. This report threw the convention
into much disorder and a lengthy discus
sion followed. Dr. Ford of Missouri ex
pressed opposition to the board, saying he
could not understand how the board sitting
at Richmond could dictate the manner of
work to missionaries who had spent the
greater part of their life in the work.
Dr. H. H. Harris, president of the board,
said there had been too much publicity. It
was only a difference of opinion. The board
had not been tyrannical nor overreached
its prerogative. Dr. A. E. Owen of Vir
ginia said the convention had appointed
boards to manage its affairs, and if others
did not agree in their actions all they could
say was to depart in peace. Dr. A. C. Pack
ard of Louisville said the rupture had
reached the churches and they were becom
ing separated. The matter should be settled.
Colonel .T. A. Hoyte offered a resolution
instructing the board to not accede to the
missionaries' demands, and it was adopted.
Some of the Difficulties Enumerated by
Mr. H. C. If illten.
Baltimore, May 17. Mr. H. C. Hilken,
of A. Schumacher & Co., agents of the
North German Lloyd Steamship company,
speaking of the recommendation of the
governors' convention at Richmond in re
lation to the best methods of turning the
tide of immigration southward, says:
"It will be difficult to divert the current
of the farmer immigrants from its present
channels, as these people, jis a rule, do not
leave their homes in Germany and else
where unless they are sure of bettering
their condition, and in this connection they
will act on the advice of pioneer settlers,
well known to them.
"Immigration to the United States is
largest after a bountiful crop in this coun
try. In other words, immigrants come if
their friends have been prosperous. There
1 are, however, new settlers in western states
Ot our country wuo mignt ue prevaneu
upon to come south if sufficient induce
ments are offered them to change location.
These people are to be found in sections
where crops have failed owing to drought,
vermin or long and severe winters. If such
people are once settled in the south and
meet with success they will form colonies,
which soon attract a desirable class of im
migrants from Europe."
Judge Twijrgs Married.
Chattanooga, May 17. Judge H. D.
Twiggs of Augusta, Ga., who recently se
cured a divorce at Sioux Falls, S. D., from
Lucie E. Twiggs, a leading society woman
of Augusta and a relative of Senator Gor
don, arrived in Chattanooga and was im
mediately married at the Stanton House
to Mrs. Cornelia E. Harrison, a charming
young widow of Charleston, S. C. She
has been living at the Stanton House for
the past month with her 5-year-old son,
awaiting the granting of the divorce to
Judge Twiggs. The judge is fully 30
years the senior of Mrs. Harrison.
