TO MOVE LUTHERAN SEMINARY
No Decision Mado Yot as to Future
Location of the Institution, but
United Synod Decides to Raise Fifty
Thousand Dollars for Enlarging
and Equipping a New Seminary.
News and Courier.
As was anticipated, the United
Synods of the Lutheran church of the
South have decided to remove the
Theological Seminary from Mount
Pleasant. That action, according to a
dispatch received last night by the
Nows and Courier from its correspondent
in Savannah, where the Synod
is now in session, was decided upon
yesterday. It was also decided to
offer back to the village of Mount
Pleasant the property it has given
the Seminary. No decision has vet
been made as In (he future location of
the Seminary, hut I lie Synod did decide
to raise $.">0,000 for enlarging
and equipping a new Seminary, and
' provided for a committee composed
of one delegate from each Synod to
carry out this plan.
"When it was planned to use the
words 'receive bids' for erecting (lie
new buildings," says the dispatch to
the News and Courier, "Capt. J. C.
Seegers, of Columbia, a delegate to
the Synod, in a straightforward
ii| speech declared that the 'receiving
v of bids is gambling and nothing else.'
His words created a sensation in the
, conference, but, served to cut the obKioctionable
words out of the resolutions
passed by the Synod."
The ITon. John D. Cappelmann, who
las been in attendance upon the Sylod,
returned to Charleston yesterlay
morning. Air. Cappelmann was
?cn by a reporter for the News and
courier and made the following statement
"The matter of the removal of the
Theological Seminary from Mount
Pleasant came up yesterday on the
report, of the standing committee, to
r whom had been referred with other
matters appertaining to the Semi^
nary the report of the board of rliree- j
. tors ("of the Seminary) presented
i through Hon. John 1<\ Thicken, secretary
of the board. Tt should be stat[
ed that the prevailing objection to the
location of the Seminary on Mount
Pleasant was its inaccessibility, causing
students, professors and visitors
great inconvenience in attending lectures
in Charleston, and in visiting
and receiving visits from their
ft iends. This special committee recommended
that the Seminary he removed
from Mount Pleasant to a
' more central location.
"Aifter much discussion on thir
proposition a vote was finally tak_..
I on the recommendation of the board
of directors embraced in the above
report to the effect, that the people
of Charleston should have until the
first of May, 1000. to locate the
t Seminary in Charleston, and if removal
|o Charleston be not assured by
that time 'that thereafter the board
be authorized to locate the Seminary

P this action it was clearly shown that
the controlling sentiment was against
