Reconvening of the Great
The Celebrated Heresy Case
Again on Trial.
Dr. Birch Makes a Statement for
Profemor Briggs Protesta Against Reins
Placed Twice In Jeopardy—at*
Make* a Strong Plea for
By ths Associated Press. I
Washington, May 24.—The Presby
terian general assembly resumed its
session this morning. Tbe committee
on aid to colleges recommended that tbe
proposition of Arthur Brown to donate
100 acres of land at Salt Lake City as a
site for the location of Westminster col
lege, Utah, be respectfully declined.
The reportof the committee on foreign
missions stated that an effort would be
made this year to raise $1,250,000.
A recess was then taken till 2:30 p. m.
At tbe afternoon session Moderator
Craig convened the assembly as a court.
Dr. Briggs ascended the platform amid
intense quiet and made a brief prelimi
nary statement regarding the time he
required for argument.
Dr. W. F. Birch, chairman of the
prosecuting committee, then took tbe
floor. After touching on the history of
the case, Dr. Biroh said: "We are here
to invoke this supreme court to pw an
end to tbe dissension and disputation
which tbe New York presbytery has
vainly endeavored to silence. Tbe form
in which the final judgmen' of the New
York presbytery wae returned gives the
impression that the alleged errors of
Prof. Briggs were unimportant, and tbat
no essential doctrine is contradicted.
There has been a tendency to minimize
the full force of tbe indicnunt; the er-
rors charged are JnndjyrjjyyaK''
peaT cannot be taken from a verdict of
acquittal, Dr. Birch said: "He who
teaches that tbe power of the general as
sembly can be nullified by the will of a
single presbytery lifts the banner of
treason against tbe presbytery and the
church. Your appellant Deseechee this
venerable court io exercise its authority
in a crista so momentons as to make
every pies .'or delay of judgment oat of
At 3:15 o'clock Dr. Briggs arose to re
ply to the opening of the prosecuting
committee and protest against the en
tertaining of the appeal by the general
assembly. Dr. Briggs went on to argue
that the form of the appeal was incor
rect and that there were many things in
it which must be removed before the as
sembly could entertain it. He also
pointed out matter included in the ap
peal which he said rendered it invalid.
A much more fundamental question
was at stake, said Dr. Briggs, than any
principleof law ordoctrineyet diecussed;
that was whether the Presbyterian
church should be considered a merely
voluntary religious society or the church
of Jesus Christ. It was the civil law
of the land, he said, that no man
should be twice tried for the same of
fense. Was the Piesbyterian church
ready to ignore or violate a well-settled
principle, found by centuries of observa
tion and experience to be essential to
the well being of the people without suf
If this appeal was sustained it would
become an unfortunate precedent which
would be followed by public prosecutors
who would magnify their office and
bring differences of opinion, and estab
lieh a new and easy way for ambitious
litigants to secure authoritative deci
sions of the general assembly in many
matters which were now regarded as
legitimate matters of private opinion,
and thus imperil tbe constitution by an
unending series of beresy trials and re
sult in changes in the doctrine nnd law
of the Presbyterian church. The gen
eral assembly could not lawfully revise
or amend tbe constitution by final judg
ment in heresy trials. Public prosecu
tors were pushing the Presbyterian
church into a very inconsistent and
dangerous position. They were endeav
oring to secure new definitions of dog
ma by a final judgment in a hereiv
trial, when they ought to aim to secure
them by overtures in accordance with
the provisions of tha form of govern
Dr. Brigge spoke an hour and a half
and then yielded for a motion to ad
Meetlnga of the Various Soolotlee of the
Church at Denver.
Denver, May 24.—Tbe American Bap
tist Publication society met this morn
ing. After addresses of welcome and
responses, the usual committees were

000 copies of books, pamphlets and tracts
were printed during the year.
The afternoon session was devoted to
the Baptist Young People's anion of
America, and on this theme several in
teresting addresses were made.

Missionary society held a long meeting,
discussing questionß of moment to the

HAULED OVER THE COALS
Harrington's Condaot of tho Weather
Bureau Severely Criticised.
Washington, May 24. — \ssistant At
torney-General Colby today made a re
port to the secretary of agriculture on
the weather bureau investigation. II ■
enters into voluminous details to sustain
his conclusions that the system of man
agement adopted by tbe ohief of the
weather bureau, in addition to the ob
jection of being without authority of
law, has resulted in relieving subordi
nate officials from responsibility, and in
an entire absence of business methods so
necessary in the general conduct of exec
The evidence shows that property of
the government has been taken from the
bureau for private use, or illegally sold ;
tbat official tbeft and embezzlement has
been discovered and brought to the
notice of the chief of the bureau, but
that the offenders, with per naps, a sin
gle exception, have never been punished,
and many thousands of dollars' worn
of puolic property;icarried on the official
rolls, is not to be found in tbe bureau,
and is not to be accounted for. It fur
ther appears that there is a lamentable
lack of harmdny in the relatione exist
ing between tbe different officials of the
In conclusion Colby makes this sig
nificant suggestion as to the powers of
the secretary in the premises: The act
of congress making appropriations for
the weather bureau for tbe fiscal year
1893, contains the provision that the
secretary of agriculture is authorized to
make such changes in the personnel of
the weather bureau for limiting or re
ducing expenses as be may deem neces

An Effort to Bring the Sunday Opening
Question Up Again—Can the Fair
Be Closed by the Fed
Ry tho Associated Presa.
Chicago, May 24.—People outside of
Chicago are apparently beginning to
realize that the world's fair is really
open, and business at tbe ticket offices
is beginning to fairly boom. Hotel pro
prietors, too, are realizing tbe fact, as
their rooms are rapidly filling up Since
the opening day almost three quarters
of a millions of people have paid for ad
mission to the "White, city," and tbe
attendance seems on a steady increase.
The first of the European excursions
to the fair arrived today—one French
and one German party —and the man
agers say more will come each week.
Aside from the Britiah and Canadian
celebration of Queen Victoria's birth
day, the center of attraction today

An Effort Made to Brine; the Question
[ Chicago, May 24.—An effort was made
at the meeting of the national commis
sion today to have the Sunday opening
question brought up again. Commis
sioner Hundley claimed that when the
commission substituted the minority
report of the judiciary committee for the
majority report and then declined to
adopt the recommendation of the minor
ity ior certain amendments to the direct
ors' Sunday opening rule, the majority
report must come up for action. A heat
ed discussion followed, and the matter
was made a special order for tomorrow.
COMMISSIONER MASSEY RESIGNS.
Immediately on the assembling of the
world's fair commission today, Commis
sioner Massey of Delaware tendered hiß
resignation as a member of tbe judici
ary committee. Tbe cause of his resig
nation was the rejection of the majority
report of the committee on Sunday
closing by the national commission yes
terday. After a long discussion the
commission postpoued action on Mas
eey'a resignation till tomorrow.
CANNOT BE CLOSED.
The Chicago Times tomorrow will
print a story claiming that tbe world's
fair cannot be closed on Suuday by an
injunction. According ,to the Times,
the United States as complainant, would
have no grounds on which to ask an in
junction ; nor wo-ild the Sabbatarians,
for that matter. Commissioner St. Clair
satisfied himself on the point by holding
a conference with a number of attorneys.
The Times will also print a dispatch
from Washington agreeing with this
opinion. Director General Davis said
today from his understanding the gates
will be open next Sunday and he should
so direct unless restrained by a more
imperative mandate than the* directors'
A PROBABLE INJUNCTION.

! law the attorney-general declined to
give Gilchrist any specific instructions,
and informed htm that until Bucb viola
tion was officially presented be must use
his own discretion. Gilchrist left here
for Chicago this evening, and if the fair
is opened on Sunday, it is believed he
will go into the United States court and
ask for an Injunction restraining tbe
