THE KYNOD MEETING.
Lively Discussions Over the Con
Still bo Action and Not Ltkeljr to be
Any.. .The Temperance Isaac Again
Other Convention Hualaeaa.
Toward tte close of yesterday, after
noon's session of the Swedish Lutheran
Evangelical Synod of North America, at
Augustan a College, one of the delegates
introduced Ae following
which was ilecided out of order:
Whkreai;, The temperance question is
a moral question, and as such of the
greatest importance to all christians of'
every denoriination. And
WHKRKAf, The Swedish Augustana
Synod of tha Lutherau church has al
ways so coo sidercd it. Therefore be it
Resolved, That the Augustana Synod
sympathize heartily with the temperance
movement ii Pennsylvania and does e
press as its unanimous hope, that the
election on '.he 18th instant may result
favorably tc the temperance cause.
Retolved. That a copy of these resolu
tions be spread upon the minutes of this
Synod and nlso furnished to the asso
A splendil sermon was preached at 2
o'clock by tie Rev. P. A. Cederstroio.
At 3 o'clock the Synod resolved itself into
a TheologicU convention for the discus
sion on the Theses on the holy ministry.
The question discussed was this; "The
first of the Theses says that Christ him
self has insttuted the oHee of the holy
ministry in the church." The Rev. (
Alraen, of Minnesota, the great temper
ance workei, was requested to open for
the defense, which he did ia an able
Rev. Fori ander said that all christians
belonged tc the universal priesthood of
the church, but that in addition to this
there was h special office appointed by
Christ for tl e preaching of the gospel and
administering of the sacrament. The
two are al ke in this instance, that a
minister of the gospel should alway be a
member of the ministreal priesthood; i e,
a believing christian , but all christians
are not calk d to preach and administer
This ques Jon is of great importaace in
the synod, as a large part of the synod,
with the noted Rev. P. Sjoblorn as
leader, does not believe in any special
ministry. Tbey claim that a minister of the
gospel holds only the delegated right of
the member j of his church, and members
of the universal priesthood, and this
merely to secure the proper order in the
work of the church.
The Rev. Norelius called attention fb
the fact that as the synod laid great stress
upon the call of the individual church to
the candidate for ordination, to his
way of thinking it should also be laid on
ordination. The two are necessary. The
speaker raised the question whether
Christ bad ijiven the holy ministry to
the individual church at large as a gen.
eral body. The speaker held the ratter
view, and showed by argument that it
was necessa-y to do so so at least.
In reference to the foreign field where
there are ro individual churches that
could eztei d calls to candidates, while
the speaker does not believe in apostolic
succession n the field of the Lord, he
called attent ion to the fact that those to
be ordained had always been ordained by
those who were always in the ministry.
Rev. Eric kson held the old conserva
tive view of the ministry, the same as
Rev. Norelius, who preceded him, and
spoke stron;;ly and with logic in its favor.
Christ is this shepherd. Every pastor is
also a shepherd accountable always to
Christ and not to the individual church.
The congregation should understand that
it is the first duty of every christian min
ister to please Christ rather than man.
The Rev. Mallin did not think in this
day due attention was paid to holy writ.
It was two-fold important for churches
and pastors to join hands in work and
remember that Christ is the head of the
church and its ministry. The discussion
of the sub.ect of the afternoon did not
hold a full bouse of delegates, the audi
ence being considerably less than the
Tirm morning's session
opened with prayer by Rev. Weidner,
The discussion on the new constitution
was resume 1. The Rev. Hatcrius moved
the previo is question; carried almost
unanimously. The vote was then or
dered and resulted in the defeat of the
new constitution by an overwhelming
majority. The vote, as announced by
the secretaiy, was yeas 90, nays 173. The
vote necesary to carry the measure
would be a two-thirds vote of all dele
gates present. The friends of the meaas
ure were all present expecting a vote.and
those opposed did not show up in their
full trenc h, which accounts for the
small majority in opposition to its adop
tion. This is a question which has dis'
turbed the i ynod for many years.
THK TIMPEBANCE RESOLUTION,
intrnriured vesterdav afternoon, was

kota were ndded to the Synod as con'
A resolution was offered and adopted
unanimous y as follows:
Retolved, That the Augustana Synod
stands unanimously in favor of moral
and christian temperance, but not in favor
of political temperance.
The last resolution, from our limited
knowledge of the Swedish language
means that a good part of the Synod do
not favor the prohibition party, a politi
cal body, in the sense advocated by fa
natics like Ht. John, but prefer legisla
tion which will curtail the sale and rise

The Rev. Ranseen declined, and he
was excused. The committee will have
meeting this afternoon to organize and
arrange preliminary work. According
to this resolution and appointment of
committeess, this constitutional question
dies hard, and will come up at future
meetings of synods.
A committee was appointed to aid in
conjunction with the committee in
Sweden on the book of union service and
iterary, with instructions to adopt the
best. The committee as appointed af
ter much discussion, is composed of Rev.
Prof. T. N. Hasselquist, Revs. K. For-
sander, P. Ljoblorn, S. P. A. Lindahl,
Prof. A. O. Bersell, C. M. Esbiorn and
the Rev. Eric Carlsoon.
THE NEW CONSTITUTION FOR THE SEMIN
The clerk asked that the proposed new
constitution for the seminary be now
Rev. Carlsson objected, and wanted
the usual order.
Rev. Sjoblorn explained that the
adoption or rejection of this constitus
tion affected the entire run of educational
business of the synod.
The Rev. Rydholm wanted to know
where this constitution originated.
Rev. 8joblorn Bald the theological
faculty had presented it.
Rev. Lindeblad said that the whole
matter was too important to he tP1
pon and appealed to the delegates to
vote to lay it on the table and called at
tention to the importance of affecting, a
seperation of the seminary from the col
lege. Mr. Calseth was of the same opinion.
Rev. Wallin hoped the -Synod would
not act hastily.
Dr. Hasselquist also spoke in the same
strain. He thought seperation was too
important a question to consider without
solemn and prayerful consideration. He
would like to see a committee appointed
to read and report on this child sprung on
the Synod. This committee should be
given ample opportunity to report on its

cal council and wanted no new commit

Rav. Lindblad was sorry the question
was brought up so abruptly and hoped it
would not pass.
Dr. Weidner said we must organize our
work and look forward to the time when
the church would have 1,000 ministers.
Rev. Carlsson wanted the committee
to show their hand and make a concise
statement of the contents of the proposed
Prof Weidner again took the floor and
explained the origination of the consti
tution, saying that it was the brain work
of Prof. Olsson and himself. Thev had
labored for over two years to mature the
document. He denied that it was the
intention of the friends of the congtitu
tion to remove the seminary from Rock
Island. This was a matter for the svnod
to decide. It was an attempt to consoli
date the whole synod and interests in the
seminary. One provision provided for a
board of directors with a representative
from every conference, this general com
mittee to select an executive committee
who will report to the general committee
and the last committee named to the syn
od. He wanted to see the seminarv work
of the synod united, and advocated the
free tuition of students for the ministry
made. He thought it was not charitable
ior mis nenomination to asK the poor
young men who are struggling for an
education to better fit them to do God's
work, to pay all the expenses. His ex
planation was a long one, but the above
are the salient points.
Rev. Fradcen was glad that the synod
took time to look the matter squarely in
the face and hoped to see the question
thoroughly discussed. Rev. Carlsson
moved to take up the constitution after
the regular business of the institution had
been disposed of.
Rev. Sjoblorn objected and explained
that the constitution should be acted up
on first. Prof. Foss wanted time at least
to read the constitution before he voted
