The Conservatives Are In Con?
trol of the Committee
The Minlsterial Unlon of Riehmond
la up agalnst lt agaln hard and strong.
Apparently a. Batlsfactory lssue was
reached at the end of the recent troub
lous tlmes, but thl3 lssue Ia turning out
to be aomething entlrely different from
what was expected, and there are more
troublous tlmes ln sight.
HAVE A MAJOR1TT.
The apparent vlctory of thoso who
wlshed to have the sessions of the
union opened to the dlscusslon of va?
rlous subjecls, commonly known as "llve
topics," "current events" and bo on,
turns out to be no vlctory at all. Though
they were voted down in the generai
meetlng, the conservatives who wished
the doors closed to all such dlscussions
have practlcally a control ot tho sltua
tion. As wlll be recalled, provlslon
was made for a Buslness Commltteo, to
which was to be referred all topics
proposed for conslderation by the gen?
eral body. If thls committee reported
favorably any matter it would be ad?
mltted; otherwise lt would not.
The members on the commlttee wero
appointed by the several denominationnl
meetings, and it develops that of the
four already appointed three are conser?
vatives?"Dr. R. P. Kerr, for the Presby
terians; the Rev. Carey E. Morgan, for
the ChrfBtlans, and Dr. C. S. Gardner for
Tho fourth member Ia tbe Rev. XV. B.
Beauchamp. for the Methodlsts. who is
ln Une with thoso -who wlsh the union
opened for legitlmato dlscusslon. But
Mr. Beauchamp roeognlzes the Inevitable.
He said yesterday that the conservatives
had a majorlty and he expressed the be
Uef that no subject whatsoever would
ever get bv that commlttee.
ACTION OF THE CLERICTJS.
Entlrely apart from thls. however, Is
the actlon ot the Eplscopal Clericus yes?
terday, whlch actlon glves a new twist
to the sltuatlon. Por a long tlme the
clerlous was unablo to decide whether
or not lt ahould take any step at all.
But few of its members have been at
tendlng the meetings of the unlon, and
as a body It hardly felt in the posltlon
to act Flnally, however, after a very
conslderable dlscusslon, the followlng
resolutlon was adopted by a vote of IU
"Resolved, That the clericus will ap
polnt a member for the Business Com?
mittee of tho Minlsterial Union, provlded
that no questlon for dlscusslon shall be
considered ia the union untll it has boen
referred to lt by the expressed consent ot
every member of the committee."
"We feel that every denomlnatlon
should be in a position to protect It
self," doclared a member of the cleri?
cus afterwnrds. And that ls all ho would
say about tho matter.
BEGIN ALL OVER AGAIN.
The actlon of the clericus practlcally
puts the unlon back whero lt was at
flrst and destroys the work accompllshed
as a result of the long and nnlmated dls?
cusslon at the lost moetlng.
Tho Kerr resolutlon was reconsldered,
because lt provlded for unanlmous voto
ln tho unlon beforo any matter not
strictly devotlonal could bo lntroduced.
But lt ls just as hard to got a unanlmous
voto In the commlttee; one man may
block cverythlng, and then the unlon Is
Just where lt was at the beglnnlng. Whon
tho resolutlon from tho clericus is lald

Just such another dlscusslon ns waa
The result is freely predlctod by mnny.
It has already been demonstrated that a
mnjorlty of thoso ln the unlon aro agalnst
tho "unanlmous voto" Idea, nnd they wlll
probabiy voto thnt way ngaln. Tho
clericus wlll not como ln on Uny other
