expresses surprise that its recent edi?
torial oa "The Misuse ot tho Pulpit"
provoked the comment It did.
The only reply the Churchman ?oes

"In our lssuo of December 13th last

Plans are being projected for ft con?
siderable enlargement of tho ourrloulum
a.t Richmond College In some of It

an outlay of about $10),OC? for tho endow?

Dlsousslon of the rruuter developed yes?
terday at the semi-annual meeting of
the Board of Trustees of tho College,
held at tho First Baptist Church, As
yet the whole business Is in a somewh?t
Indonnito shape, but It has developed
far enough to show that tho trustees are
all heartily ln favor of tlie scheme. The
next meeting will probably result In a
distinct movement of some sort.
Tho new department will be quartered
In the Science Hall, to which it will prop?
erly belong. ? new professor will be
added to the faculty and a lot of new
equipment will havo to be purchased.
For this purposo and for the endowment
or tho proposed new ohoir something
like a hundred thousand dollars will be
needed. The proposition of getting to?
gether this much money is the matter
now under discussion.

The meeting of the trustees began at
11:30 o'clock In the morning and continued
until 6 o'clock la the afternoon. The at?

tant routine and other business. The

elected to fill a vacancy on the Board.
The death of two members, Colonel
Thomas Tabb, of Hampton, and Dr.

The. death of the Rev. Dr. P. P. Deans,
the well-known Baptist minister and edu
o?tor, was mentioned and deplored.
The various reports submitted were of
a most encouraging character. Tho Col?
lege was shown to bo ia a more pros?
perous condition than for many years

ing. The roport of President Boatwrlght
brought out the fact that a good 'pirit
exists at the College and that the boys
are doing good work with their studies.
Dr. W. E. Hatcher, president of the
Board of Trustees, submitted a report of
his work for the College He gave a. re?
view of tho situation and made several
interesting suggestions ln connection with

and the circulation of literature concern?
ing the College. Dr. Hatcher was given
a month's leavo of absence for rest and
recreation after his arduous duties.
The Committee on Scholarships re?

among them belog tho son of the Rev.

from Richmond, twenty-four from the
State at large, and six from other
States and countries. The scholarship
fund now amounts to $16,000, out at In?

resignation, Mr. Bachelor said to-day:
"It ls my conviction that tho decision
of tho Education Society, which gives
pecuniary aid to young mon studying
for tho ministry, expresses the attitude
of the Congregational Church on tho
tobacco question. Hence I could not go
on ministering to a flock that gains its
livelihood from tobacco culture. I did
not ask those of my dear, good people
whose farms are ! so small that they
must ralso tobacco to support their fami?
