DEmotY, .May 28.-The case of Dr.
Srigis.lirofesnorof biblical theology in the
Union Theoljicnl seminary, New Yorfe,
who is charged with heresy in not believ
ing certain part of the Bible, came up for
mally for the first time in the Presbyterian
general assembly yesterday. Dr. Pulton
obtained leav to read so much of the re
port on -theological semiaarie as bear '
on the ste of Dr. Briggs, in order that it
may be printed and distributed to the as
sembly when it comes up for action. '
Sixty-three presbyteries, whoa names he
.read, Lave orertureJ the assembly as to
the utterance of Dr. Brigs. Some ak
specific action, but the majority leave to
the a,mbly what it shall be.
Duration Itefnre the Conference.
The committee replies to so much of the
report of the Union Theolojical ssminar;
beiir on Dr. BrisK' appointment or
transfer to tlie chair ot biblical theology,
at foilow: "Our duty is a delicate one,
especially as the presbytery ot New York
is trying him onthe charge of heresy, a-Jwe
tnut not prejudse a cae which at some
time must tome before us on appeal. The
question before us is not that of his doc
trinal soundness but that of the approval
of Lis election by the assembly. We have
examined the coustit ut ional requirements
as to the duty and power of the assembly
in assenting to or forUdJiug t,uch ap
pointment or transfer.''
Iut Ite seltlei! Now if at All.
Dr. P.itton quoted from the records, as
well as from appointments of professors
that have cunviuced the committee that
the as-enil.!y has power to forbid the
transfer. "We should have been willing
to recommend the referencj of the subject
to a committee to report to the nest as
sembly, i.ut the control of the assembly
over the matter ceases with the present
session. We must act now if at all. We
adm;t that in one view the trustees may
have ground for their denial of the ricn't
of the assembly to veto the transfer of a
professor from one chair to another.
Besides, the assembly is one partv to a
compact with the Union Theological sen.

Views of the Trustees.
"The trustees of the seminary consider j
that the origu.J appointment ui'ves s-tatus
anu ttjat this assembly has a TtUx to for
bid; Lut trau.fer simply assigns duty and
with that the assembly has uo ruht to in
terfere. Now while we think the assem
bly has control of both, yet. in view of the
cordial relations always existing between
it audthe trustees of this seminary it
would be proper to appoint a committee
of conference with them to report to the
'In accordance with these views the
committee recommeud that the assem
bly disapprove of the appointment of Dr.
Charles Briggs to the Edward Kobinson
chair of biblical theology of Union Theo
logical seminary, and'ihaf a commute;
ot conference with the trustees of thai
institution be appointed by the assembly

port was accepted on motion of Dr. Proud
lit, of Baltimore, and the clerk ordered to
have the report printed.
OR. PARKHURST ON REVISION.
the eiort ou
Dr. Parkhurst. who is expected to te
the leader in Dr Briggs' defeuse, gave his
views ou revision to a reporter. Said he:
"Revision must come. Theology must
grow. All things that have life must
grow, and growth means change. I don't
believe in tying a man or church down to
ideas of a man that's been dead three
hundred years. Changes that will com
will recoguiu more fully the divine love
in connection with justice and law of
God." The report of the present revision
committee as published could only be
characterized by Dr. Parkhurst as "a
damnation report with a gospel tall "

During the session of the assembly
there was a good deal of business trans
