SARATOGA, N. Y., May 27. The Presby

former declaration in favor of the Bible in
the public schools. The committee on
publication reported, showing a great
amount of work in the missionary and
Sunday school line. Fraternal greeting
was received from the Baptist societies at
Chicago. The committee an frecdmen
brought in r. report that the feature
of the day. It was on a request that col

footing as white ones, and the report was
against the request. Dr. Booth moved to
amend by granting the request.
The Color Line Obliterated.
The question was debated with a good
deal of vigor ou both sides. It was said
in favor of the original report that the
freedmen's board was doing a specific
work, and to adopt Booth's amendment
would be equivalent to abolishing the
board. On the otrfthand it was urged
that to deprive colored presbyteries
of the privileges accorded to the white
ones was unfair and impugned the man

was taken amid mneh excitement and the
amendment adopted 150 to 14 .

there was a well-founded suspicion that
Starling murdered her, that he might get

Doings in Congress.
Washington- Citt, May 27. Tht appro
priation of $13,000,000 for three battleships,
lu the naval appropriation bill, v.-as the
subject of a good deal of discussion in the
senate yesterday and also of a character
istic proposition made by Blair. C'ockrell
had moved an amendment striking out the
provision, and he called attention t- Halo's
former remark that this was only it begin
ning; also to the report of the naval policy
board which declared that the United
States "must maintain a navy nt least
equal in strength to the most werful
navy in the world."
The Naval Board Criticised.
Hale said that it would be difficult to
find a senator or a responsible official who
indorsed the report of this "policy board."
The report had not lieen accepted by the
secretary of the navy as laying out his pol
icy. The lordly scheme laid out by that
board was hindering the legitimate prog
ress of building up a respectable n;ivy.
Cockrell then quoted from the re port of
the secretary of the navy recommending
the construction of seventeen battleships,
twelve coast defenders, and twei ty-nine
nnarmored vessels, at a cost of abo it 135,
000,000. The report of the policy board, he
said, was in accordance with the recom
mendations of the army board for an ex
penditure of tl26,000,000 for fortifications
to terrorize other nations instead ol setting
an example of peaceful arbitration to the
Klair's Proposition to England.
Blair moved to insert in the provision
for the three battle-ships the following:
"But this provision shall not be available
until the government of Great Britidn shall
have been requested by the presi lent to
withdraw all her naval forces from Amer
ican waters and to dismantle her naval
stations in both iirth and South Amer
ica and in adjacent islands, and shall have
declined or shall have neglected for one
year so to do." Blair said that if this was
not adopted the United States would
have to be prepared to repel force on the
sea He stid a large proportion of the
British parliament favored abitrat .on, and
why, he asked, should they not fi.vor dis
armment A Time When Ve Most Fight.
Ilawley said that there was evidently
some time in the history of the woi Id when
in very sliiime. for the sake of manhood
and decency and patriotism, for the sake
of God and country, a people mut-t fight.
And those were the days that lifte I people
out of their sensuality out of lleirwor
ship of the almighty dollar. He w as in fa
vor of jw-ace, but a proposition In m a na
tion already disarmed to Great B -itain to
disarm was simply ludicrous. Blair's
amendment was rejected.

Jung's hall, at 106 Randolph street, last
night, to further consider the compulsory
educational law question. Itwolutions
which had been formulated by a commit
tee, demanding certain changes in the
compulsory school law with the object of
making said law conform to German
Id as, were presented and were the sub
ject of discussion. What German ideas
a appears from the action of the meet
lag given below. ft
An Amendment Proposed.
The resolutions were read to the meet
ing, and Mr. Stern offered an amendment
to the effect that the law should lie changed
so that it may be optional for the parent
to have the child instructed at private
schools in any language or auy course of
instruction, provided that in such private
schools a course of study comprising the
English language, reading and writing,
arithmetic, spelling, ,Cwtcf of the United
States, and geography is taught.
Vigorous Opposition Develops.
This proposition brought .Francis A.
Hoffman, Jr., to his feet in vigorous oppo
sition. He denied the right of the state to
designate any particular language or
course of instruction in a purely private
