Detuoit, May '.3 With the usual de
votional exercises the Presbyterian gen
eral assembly opened yesterday with
great array of empty seat", the commis
sioners not coming up very promptly. It
was 10 o'clock before there was a fu'.l
hone. The moderator named the com
mittees and then the clerk read a list of
the presbyteries that hare voted on the
question of change in the confession, that
being the special order for the day. Xine-ty-one
presbyteries voted for change,
even von-d against, and six refused to re
port. The report of the revision commit--
was then read by K--v. V. C. Roberts,
who took occasion to say that the daily
pipers of yesterday had printed an incor
rect copy, lie ulso sail that the report
was incomplete, as the committee had
thought 4x'st to leave some matters und-cid-.-il
lor discussion in tUe assembly and
further reference and consideration.
The Matter of ForeordinAtion.
The most important chances jropoe.l
are as follows; s-ectkn 5, which is the por
tion of the present confession reUtiato
foreordination, becomes section d, and is
ameuded to read: "God before the foun
dation of thi world was laid, according
to his eternal and immutable purpose,
and the secret counsel and good pleasure
of His will, hath predestined some of
mankind uuto life, and hath particularly
and unchangeably cbcen them in Christ
unto verlast!Dg fclory, out of His mere
free rsice and luve, without any foresight
of faiUi, or Rood works, or perseverance
in either of them, or any other thing in
the creature, as conditions or causes,
mot;ti( hrui thereunto; and all to the
praise of li;s glorious grace."
The Balance of Mankind.
Section 6 remains unchanged and bp
comes section 4. Section 7 was amended
and becomes section 5, and is as follows:
"The rest of mankind God was pleased
accord. n j to the unsearchable counsel of
his own will, whereby He extendeth or
withholdeth mercy as he pleaseth, not to
elect unto everlasting life, but to ordain
them to dishonor and wrath for their si u,
lo the praise of His glorious justice; yet
so as thereby neither is any limitation
put upon the offer of salvation to all,
cpon condition of faith in Christ; nor is
restraint laid npon the offer of salvation
to all, upon condition of faith in Christ;
nor is restraint laid upon the freedom of
any oue to hinder his acceptance of this
Free "Will and the Tapary.
The chapter on free will is amended by
the aiditiou of those words to the declar
ation on the insufficiency of the will of
man for spiritual goodness: "Vet is his
responsibility as a free moral aent not
In the pronouncement upon lawful
oaths, "popish monastic vows" are de
scribed simply as "monastic vows." Sim
ilar changes with regard to the term "pa
pist" are made in the chapter on marriage
and divorce, and the pope of Rome ceases,
in the revision, to be described as anti
Christ. The sacrifice of the mass is also
referred to as a "Roman Catholic doc
trine" rather than "popish," but it con
tinues to be designated as abominably in
jurious. Infants and Other I'rrsnn.
Clause 3 o( chapter 12 is changed to
read as follows: "All infants dying in in
fancy, and all other persons who, from
birth to de.it h, are incapable of being out
wardly called by the ministry of the
word, are redeemed by Christ, and re sen -erated
by the Spirit, who worketh when,
and where, and how he pleaseth." This
is a radical alteration, differing from the
old confession in the insertion of the
words, "all," "from birth to death," "are
redeemed," and "and are regenerated by
Hepudiation of Papa-1 Supremacy.
An entirely new clause is the following:
"Chapter Si, section 0. There is no
other head of the church but the Lord
Je'ins Christ, and the claim of t'.ie popj of
Home to be the vicar of Christ and the
Lead of the church universal is without
warrant in Scripture or in fact; and is a
usurpation dishonoring to the Lord Jusus
A BATTLE SOON ENDED.
The Whole Ilevlsion Untitles Shelved
for Auother Tear.
In the debate on the repart. after Rev.
J. T. Smith, of Baltimore, had moved its
acceptance and recommital to the pres
byteries, President Patton said he heartily
approved of revision, but objected to
sending this report down wit h marks of
approval. Some of the changes lie en
dorsed, others ho opposed. After some
further debate the report was adopted
and recom nutted. The presbyteries wi 11
report their views back to the committee
on revision, and the latter will finally re
port next y -ar. And so tiie great re
vision battle was ended almost as soon as
it was begun.
' liemaik on Chut oh Vnity.
The Teport of the committee on the
board of publication was made special or
der-for Tuesday next, and then Joseph
Dudley Torreuce, D.D., of Ripley, O",
read a report ou sinful amusements
theatres, promiscuous dancing, and card
playing. Dr. Joseph Smith, of Balti
more, reported on the progress made by
the committee on church uuity, which is
instructed to report to the next assembly.
The only princ.pla on which the Episco
pal church tninks there is not substan
tial accord is that of the threefold orders
of the ministry, and this it does not re
gard as a matter so much of dogmatic
principle as of historic importance. The
committee asked to be discharged from
further consideration of inter-denominational
questions for which there is a spe
cial committee and that they be contin
ued. Agreayl to. '
f.ot All the I'nity Practicable.
George P. Hayes, D. D , of Kansas City,
thought that the committee should be
discharged from further consideration of
church unity with the Episcopal church,
and that we have as much inter-denominational
federation as is practical. This
is espeefctUy tree on forelga and heme
H. H. Rice, D. D.. of Oakland, C.L.
thought that no invidious exception of
Episcopalians should be ma le or impl id,
as if their "peculiar notions" wera tlis
principal obstacles to church unity. "Our
Baptist brethren cannot commune w th
us, but we manage to co-operate a gcod
deal, and wore every year."
Sent to m Special Committee.
Dr. Alexander Proudflt, of Baltimore,
thought "we ought to let our Episcopal
brethren understand, that wa esteem o lr
ordination tows to be as valid as theirs.
If it is settled that they are never coir g
to recognize the validity of our ordination
it is time to stop."
Dr. McCook, from the commitee, said
the doctrinal standards of the Episcopal
church do not compel them to treat is
with ecclesiastical discourtesy. It is only
a matter of tradition and usage as to
which progress may always be hoped f cr.
AVe know reasons which we cannot tell
publicly why we should be patient and
hopeful just now.
After further discussion the matter vs
referred to a special committee to 1
brought up iiefore this assembly as sooa
as practicable, and the assembly ad
journed for the day.
DON DICKINSON'S VIEWS.
The Alliance a Menace to the Republic
ans Only The Silver Question.
New Yokk, May 23. The Hon. Don M.
Dickinson, of Michigan, ex-postmastet
general, was at the Hoffman house Thurs
day. He was asked by a reporter wha
importance he attached to the recent
tneetiu of the third party peopl in Cin
cinnati. "I have no fears that the Alii
ance. however, strong it may become be
f.ire lv.2. will injure the Democratic par
ty's chances of electing its candidate," he
Biid. "The Alliance may develop strength
enough to prevent the election of a presi
dent by a popular vote. In that case it
w-ill go to the house in congress, and a
Democratic president will be elected. The
Alliance will draw its strength from the
Republican party much more than the
Democratic. I should say for a guess
that it would get 73 per cent, from the Re
publicans. It cannot get following
enough to do much more than throw the
election of a president into the national
house, and hence it is not to be feared.
Wlver a Secondary Issue.
"The coinage of silver will be discussed
in the Dext national campaign; althonirb
I believe the chief issue will be the tariff.
In Michigan the Democrats are' iu favor of
repealing the McKnley bill, passing a
new tariff law, and oing to the country
on that issue in lVJi There is much talk
of free coinage in my state. I have fre
quent calls for the free silver speech of
Jones of Nevada in the senate at the last
congress. The people are interested in
the question and will not let It alone. It
must euter somewbat in the next cam
paign, though as a secondary issue." Mr.
Dickiuson said the Michigan Republicans
were for Alger if Blame is not a candi

THE CUHS2 OF A DYING SUICIDE
Left for an CnVnown Female A Luckless
Marriage la Which Bride and Groom
Parted at the Wife's Residence and
Never Met Again Vntil the Husband
Was Dead by His Own Hand A Di
vorce Case That Will Never Be Tried.
Chicago, May 23. One year ago Mary
Tleinmann was employed in the neckwear
factory of J. E. G. Scott & Co., 254 Monrce
street. Harry J. Dean, who committed
suicide at the Sherman house Thursday,
was a traveling salesman for Scott & Co.
Miss Heinmann was attractive in appear
ance, and had many admirers. Deau was
a dashing fellow, and on bis business
trips to the office he noticed the pretty
girl at work. It was a case of love at first
sight. One evening Deau escorted Miss
Heinmaun to her home at 1013 West
Twelfth street, and after that he was a
Married and Driven Apart.
Her family objected to the intimacy
which existed betwten the young couple,
as reports had reached them derogatory
to Dean's character. A brother of the
girl told Dean that his absence was pref
erable to his company. But the salesman
decided to make Miss Heinmann his wife.
She loved him passionately. They quietly
stole away and were married. Oa their
return to the bride's home, however, a
storm burst over their heads and Dean
left the house, never to return. For a
short time the young couple corresponded,
but soon this was stopped.
Met Next in a lead-Houe.
From the day of the wedding the young
bride had never looked upon the face of
her husband until yesterday, when she
gazed upon him as he lay on a marble
slab at the Monroe street morgue. He
had committed suicide Thursday at the
Sherman house. Oat in the rear room
of the dead house the body lay covered
with a sheet. The attendant lifted the
cloth from the face of the corpse, showing
the features of a good-looking man about
25 years old. "Oh, Harry. Harry," moaned
the young woman as she gazed upon the
still face, ami then, with a long, lingering
look, she left the room.
Death Ahead of the Court.
A few days ago an application was made
before the clem of the circuit court for a
divorce by the young wife, but a higher
power has granted it. Dean registered at
the Sherman house Tuesday morning. He
had been drinking several days, ami was
on the verge of delirium tremens. Wednes
day night he drove away iu a cab and re
turned at a late hour. Thursday he re
mained in his room writing letters, and
then he took the morphine which ended
his life. One letter directed to his wife
merely said: -My dear little wife, I am
sorry for the trouble I have caused yon
forgive me. Harry."
Left Her His Dying Curse.
The missive to his mother was a long
one, consisting of several pages. In it he
confessed his weaknesses, and b3gged her
forgiveness-for the trouble he had caused
her. The note to his father was an affect
ing one. It read: "My dear old indul
gent father, give me quarter now for I
im dying. Harry." One note addressed
to the care of a relative read: "Mabel, I
damn you with my. dying breath. I die,
I ut I hate you "
An t'nflnished Message.
The letters had been left ou a chair be
sdethebed. In the stiff fingers of the
corpse was tightly clutched a lead pencil,
bile one ot the letters was grasped in
the other hand. He had been writing at
the time ot his death, and only stopped
when his faculties left him. The unfin
ished message read: "The last five min
ttes I beg forgiveness. I am going,
diarLord, take." The words ended in
a scrawl and a mark ran across the envel
op e as his lifeless hand had dropped to his

New Y'or.K, May 2a. A copy of the
Itt.lian "Green Book," containing Baron
Fava's report of the communications be
tween him and Secretary Blaine over the
New Orleans massacre has been received
here. It shows that the personal inter
vie ars were much more lively than even
the correspondence was. On March 27
Fa,-a called on Blaine to remind him that
he aad not replied to some matters pre
sented to him on the 25th, which reply
was promised for Hie same.day. At this
latter interview Blaine waxed wroth, and
