Easier to Suppress Now.
Philadelphia, May 24. The struggle
over a revision of the Westminster
confession In order to soften or elim
inate the extreme Calvanlstlc declara
tions was legun In tfie Presbyterian
general " assembly yesterday. The
church where the assembly meets was
tilled almost to Its capacity, the audi
ence crowding into the aisles in the
nave of the edifice and occupying every
foot of available space in the galleries.
Many of the spectators remained In
the church during the two hours' re
cess in order to secure their seats for
the afternoon session. Many eloquent
words were spoken pro and con. and
the orators of the assembly are in their
Confession a Human Document.
llev. Dr. Derrick Johnson, of Chi
cago, presented a careful analysis of
the confession, showing why certain
statements should be eliminated, and
asserting that some truths not con
tained therein should be added. No
one would deny, he said, that the con
fession of faith was a human docu
ment, and. therefore, subject to error.
"I wish calmly and dispassionately to
Investigate what It contains and what
It does not contain. The authors of
the creed are not Infallible. They wrote
of the pope: 'That anti-Christ man of
sin and son of ierdltlon.' We repudi
ate that belief, and why should It be
allowed to remain? We have had the
creed lilt) years and will be following
the footsteps of the Westmiuster di
vines If we make a new one."
Refers to the Law of the Case.
As to the law In the matter Dr. John
son said that when a specific change
is desired by two-thirds of the presby
teries the assembly must send down
au overture. It has no choice. The
assembly also has the power to act
when not requested to do so. "Can
we then afford to dismiss this question
when 154 presbyteries ask for a
chancer" asked Dr. Johnson.
Refers to Predestination.
Regarding predestination Dr. John
son said: "I do not arraign the doc
trine of divine election, but to shut
mercy up to the elect is to take away
its glory. We want nothing but fidel
ity to the truth. Truth Is two-sided.
Our confession holds up one side ele
pMittlv. Let us get all the truth on our
KEM ARKS ON TUK OTHER SIDE.
Dr. Purvis Thinks the Revision Proposi
tion, as Stated. Is Hopeless.
Ttev. Dr. George T. Purvis, of New
York, spoke against revision. He said
In part: "I am not an extremist on
this question. I am not one who be
lieves the confession of faith Is a per
fect document. This assembly is a de
clarative and constitutive body, not
bound by the presbytery returns. The
returns in this case present a hopeless
future for any specific plan. As for
the iHor iope of Rome In-ing anti
christ. 1 admit that It Is not the prop
er epithet to apply to him. but bring
ing up such subjects Is picking flies otf
the great pillar of the confession.
"Do yon imagine for a moment yoti
are going to stop the nserslons of the
world against CalvanismV Not for
one moment. Wheu the Westminster
divines tried to remove these asper
sions they built up a more highly ar
ticulated statement of the doctrine,
which is Just the opposite of what our
brethren want us to do."
The great question came before the
assembly with the reading of the re
port of the committee on revision by
Itev. Dr. Charles A. Dickey, chairman.
This was followed by the minority re
!ort. read by ltev. Dr. William Mc
Kihben. of Cincinnati. A rule of the
assembly gives chairmen the right to
speak on their reports after they have
leen received, but before Dr. Dickey
could secure recognition Itev. Dr. Sam
uel J. Nieeolls moved the adoption of
the first recommendation in toth re
ports. Itev. Dr. James D. Moffat made
a substitute motion to adopt the ma
jority report, and nn amendment was
offered substituting the minority.
Itev. Dr. George D. Raker presented
as another amendment a resolution to
the effect that as the vote of the pres
byteries Indicated a lack of unanimity,
the entire subject be dismissed. Dr.
Dickey seenred the floor on this amend
ment and made a stirring address sup
porting the old c-onfession. There are
commissioners committed to dis
missal, but they have expressed them
selves as open to conviction.

Washington, May 24. An interest
ing view of the present economic sta
tus and the prospec ts of Mexico is pre
sented by Dr. Walter E. Weyl, who
has recently spent six months In the
country ou some siecial work for the
economic jwroblemA to study informal
ly the financial development of Mexico
and the prospect that the long strides
taken under President Diaz will not
be retraced if he dies or retires from
office. Dr. Weyl Is satisfied that Mex
ico has reached a position of political
stability which will not 1k impaired
by a change iu the head of the gov
ernment. Easier to 8appree Bevolta Now.
He says that when the country was
the theatre of frequent pronuncla
mentoes and revolutions there did not
exist the present means of prompt
communication by railway and tele
graph. A revolution might be iu full
progress for several weeks In some
distant province before the news
would reach the capital and action to
suppress it could le taken. The condi
tions at present are very different.
They illustrate the change wrought
in the political and economic world.
Any government worthy of the name
would be Informed at the earliest
moment of any outbreak which might
occur and would be able to dispatch
troops promptly by rail to the scene
of the disturbance.
Uncle Sam Is In Evidence.
The influx of Vnited States capital
and the manner in which it is concen
trated in the hands of a few great rail
ways and banks also makes for order
and the permanence of existing Insti
tutions. The Mexican Central railway
and the other leading railways employ
many hundreds of men. have wide
financial and other connections, -and
will naturally exert their influence in
favor of order ami a conservative and
continuous national policy. Citizens
of the United States, he finds, are ab
sorbing most of the large enterprises
of the country, especially the railways
and the banks, although the Sc'iiuan
have recently established a strong in
ftitution. Where the Test Will Come In.
The l.'nited tSates citizens are rec
ognized everywhere as a growing
1 hough unostentatious force in pn
moting good government ami the con
tinuous intluem-e of the conservative
classes of Spaniards and Mexicans.
The peaceful transfer of power from
President Ikiz to a competent succes
sor would, iy the opinion of Ir. Weyl.
fend to strengthen confidence in the
future of Mexico rather than to Impair

that the country did not dcieud for
