Synod this morning. The Synod pro
per opened ty the reading of scripture,
singing and prayer. The president of the
Synod, the Eev. S. P. A. Lindhahl, is a
manor brain, a parliamentarian ana a
man of judgment and decision. What
promised to be a two weeks' session, will
adjourn by Thursday, and the gain of
time 1b due in great part to his tact and
good judgment in deciding points of
order and debate. The newspapers are
well represented. We find J. N. Soder-

The financial report of the auditing
board composed of Messrs. H. Kohler,
Cbas. W. Lundahl and C. O. Thulin, of
Augustana College accounts, is interests
ing. It shows that the income of the
college for the year was $48,977.62,
which also is practically the amount ex
pended. This does not include contribu
tions and donations to the new building
fund. This money is brought here almost
wholly from other places, and here and
in Moline it is in a great part expended.
Of the amount $7,854 65 came from a
tax of 25 cents per capita on the Swedish
Lutherans of the United states. This
represents not the whole tax for a
year, but tbe amount actually col
lected and turned in during tbe year in
consideration. From two beouests made
in distant places came $1,413 30 of the
amount; and $5,851.57 from weekly tu
ition fees. A goodly amount of it also
came from profits on the publication of
books, such as bible histories, catechisms,
etc. Indeed the profits on these publi
cations, since they were began some
years ago, have aggregated $10,999.76.

accompanied by ladies. Many of the
ministers an 1 lay delegates of the Synod
were present to enjoy the festive time
The Synod was in keeping with the oc
casion, and participants say it could not
be better to their taste. Speeches were
made by Pn fa. Carlsson, Swensson, Ne

Mrs. Alma Ivenson and Prof. Noach

Ibe principal question and the one
which caused a prolonged discussion was
in regard t) i curtailment of the power
and the representation in the general
synod. Tie debate was of interest to
the membeisof the church, but not to the
general put lie. The participants in the
discussion vere at times red hot and many
words and rloquence went up for naught.
There was no vote and there is not likely
to be before Monday noon.

this he branched off in the interest of
