beyond the posibi!ity of expression if liny

Kev. Dr. Baker, chairman of the commit

case, it recites the case of the church
against Dr. llriggs as b injj in the nature
of an appeal. The judicial committee

the minority did uot differ in principle from

GETTING DOWN TO WORK.
The Firt IJelul Ions Adopted and the
Tmtl Court on licrk.
After some preliminary sparring the first
and secoud resolutions of the majority
report were adopted, and then Dr. Driggs
rose as if to address the assembly. Ileand
the moderator had a brief colloquy and at
the close the moderator said: "I would
suggest in ttaejinterest of of .brotherly kind
ness and peace "
"Say justice," exclaimed a voice from the
callery, which was said to be that of Pro
fessor Henry Preserved Smith.
"You wait," retorted Moderator Craig,
sternly. "Don't you put words into my
mouth. I speak for brotherly kindness
and peace, which are higher than justice,
for out of them come Justice."
The moderator then explained that he
had denied Prof, liriggs the privilege of
speaking at that time, bnt there would
come a time when his brother should
speak. The moderator then announced
that in accordance with the book of gov
ernment the assembly would be turned into
a judicial court of the Lord Jesus Christ and
following the rule of procedure called for
a reading of the judgment notice of appeal,
the appeals and the specifications of the er
rors alleged. This was done by stated clerk
Roberts, the reading occupying more than
an hour and a half and exhausting all the
remainder of the afternoon session.
The great audience sat more quietly
throughout the dreary repetition of legal
forms than they probably would have done
under the most eloquent sermon. The
court then adjourned for the day. After
the adjournment the moderator called Pro
fessor Briggs and the prosecuting committee
in conference and asked them what length
ot time they desired to occupy on the ques
tion. Professor Briggs asked for five
hours; the prosecution committee said they
were in the hands of the assembly, but de

way to the cell where Sullivan was confined
and found him lying on the floor with his
Savagery and Barbarism.
A rope was quickly placed around his
neck and he was dragged to the floor and
out to the steps. The body was then pulled
to the ground where the maddened crowd

them in a terrible manner. Then the
clothes were torn from the corpse and the
rope was swung over the limb of a tree,
the crowd jerking it up and down. The

his horse near his ranche talking to some
of his employes Champion rode up and
stopped near him. having his hand on his
revolver. Shaughnessey said: "Champion,
is it true that you have threatened to kill
me on sight?" "I never have said it," re
marked Champion, at the same time pull
ing his gun. Shaughnessey was too quick
for him, however, and Champion fell with
a ball through his body. A second shot
killed him. Shaughnessey will doubtless
