Washington, May 30. After much dis

Sme U le occupied in the discussion of
the BriKs cast" nnil how it was to le di

preliminaries Colonel McCook took the
itand to open I he jirocredinirs and the

Colonel Mi-Cook's remarks were merely a

Ir. Liiniii Opens on Itri'-
Iiev. Dr. I,ampe t I. en opened for the ap
pellant. He said there were five grounds
Jor the appeal: Irregularity in the proceed
ings of the presbytery of New York; receiv
ing improper and declining to receive im
portant testimony; manifestation of preju
lice in the conduct of the case, and mistake
r injustice in the decision. He proceeded
o discuss the first cround. He asked why
Dr. Iri;'g.- objected to gointr on t rial in
the presbytery on two of the charges be
?ntise as he claimed lie had never taught
the doctrines as charged and went on trial
Dii the other charges without protest? Was
it because lie had taught those doctrines?
Then why 1 id he plead not guilty?
Tlie T!vitson of tlie l'resly tery.
Pr. I . iTiine proved himself a good pros
ecutor. K.:eh charge was taken up in
turn and Dr. I'.riggs' own words were
made to appear t: i!o duty HLrainst. him
with great -l.ili. He claimed that it was
?vide.ht that the charges again-t Or.
Briggs were proved !(. m; the presby
tery, wliile acquitting the professor want
ed it urderstoo 1 that it was not "express
ing approval of thr critical and theolog
ical vi-ws embodied in this inaugural atl
3ress." Th" speaker continued: "It is
well known that Dr. Hriggs entered a plea
of 'not mii'.tr:' ttiht he claims to he ortho
dox ami that he sr.b-cribes to an orthodox
creed. Hut. in spite of all that, lie has
made and per ists in making the state
ments for - which he has been called in
lltrrnnry of tlie "Scriptures.
Taking tip the charge that Dr. Briggs
had taught that errors existed in the Bible.
Dr. I.ampp discussed it at. length, and
ummcl up his contentions as follows:
"It i preposterous at this late day to ad
vance the claim that insisting on the truth
fulness of the Bible is tantamount to set
ting np a new test of orthodoxy. The
t-hurch has never llived anything else.
Especially is this true of the Presbyterian
church. It will not he possible to point
to a simrle Presbrterian divine from the
Westminster period f?own and especially
among American Presbyterians who has
taught the doctrine of the errancy of the
Holy Scriptures. All sides, parties and
schools in our church have been agreed in
affirming the inerrrncv of the word of
fjnntes Some I'li-Culvinistlc Iilen.
A recess having been taken Dr. Laiunn
closed his speech with a general arraign
ment, of Professor Briggs. which was se
vere both in the terms and in proof pre
sented of the professor's deviation from
Calvinistic standards. He quoted from
the writings of the professor in which he
called n judgment immediately after death
a "hurtful unchristian error;" a "btigliear
which makes death a terror to the best of
men," nnd termed the statement of Dr.
Dorner, concerning the .possibility of re
pentance in the next world, "excellent
thoughts." "The whole contention of Dr.
Briggs in his defense." said Dr. Iampe, "is
that the Bible and the standards favor
the view that the work of making believers-
pure, morally perfect and holy, is ac
complished by means of progressive sancti
fication after death. This doctrine is nn
offense according to the Book of Disci
pline." BRIGGS IN HIS OWN DEFENSE.
Sin, stating inert, ne nsa -repuaiateor toe
Roman Catholic doctrine of purgatory";
also the doctrine of future probation and
regeneration after death or any beginning
of Christian life after death."
Continuing on this subject Dr. Briggs
said: "You 1. ve heard attributed to me
the dreadful doctrine of race redemption.
But if you will loo.t into my inaugural
you will see that all I have to say on that
subject is connected with the incarnation
of Jesus Christ. The trouble with these
brethren is that they are taking a too
narrow view of the doctrine. Would that
I could teach such a comfortable doctrine;
and if the time ever comes that I can, 1
will gladly lay down my ministry in the
Presbyterian hurch, and go forth to teach
the hoDe of salvation of some of those who
pparently have died without regenera
lion in the world. But I do not hold that
Belief now; I cannot."
The doctor read from his book on "Mes
lianic Prophecy" to establish his teaching
is to the fulfillment of predictive prophecy,
rror in which was alleged in the rejected
ourth charge. This book, he said, hail
been translated into the Japanese, had re
Wived the approval of such an eminent
Sian as Gladstone and of such an orthodox
Christian as Delitsch" of Berlin. When he
bad reail a summing m in the book a com
missioner asked: "Is that the present opin
ion of Dr. Briggs? The book was written
in lv". Does he hold the same views
Dr. Briggs Why, certainly. That book
is a text book in Union Theological semi
nary, and every senior class goes over it.
The professor then jirocceiled to R leual
nd technical argument to show that some
Df the charges could not be considered here,
r.d yielded for a recess to 7:45 p. m. He

In the evening session Dr. Briggs devoted
a considerable part of his time in his nd
flress to a defense of the action of the pres
bytery. ITe declaimed against master of
record in the defendant's support lteing re
jected while evidence introduced by the
prosecution received favors. The doctor
also considered the logic of the case. He
declared that neither in his addresses nor
in any of his writings had he co-ordinated
the Bible, the church, nnd the reason; nor
could it rightly lc inferred that he did so.

MoN.Mut Til, Ills., May:0. In the United

took place over the sixth resolution of tlie

CIN'CIXXATI, May 'M. It is learned from
authentic scourees that Professor Briggs,
now on trial at Washington on the charge
Bf heresy, has been corresponding with K.
D. Morris, of Lane Seminary, concerning
the best method of forming a new church.
Dr. Briggs wants to raise the banner of a
new theology. Professor Morris ha9 replied
to the letter, attempting to discourage the
scheme. He told I'rofessor Briggs that
very few Presbyterian ministers would
desert to a new standard.

MADE A LEAD MINE OF HIM.
He State the Accusations and What He
Dr. Lampe closed with an appeal to the
assembly to settle the question in the in
terests of the true faith of the church, and
then with all eyes upon him the appellee
got up to begin his reply, an address that
is expected to take seven hours. Dr. Briggs
aid that he had been accused of teaching
that many of the Old Testament predic
tions had been reversed by history, and
that the great body of the Messianic predic
tion bad not been and could not be fulfilled,
which was contrary to the essential doc
trine of Holy Scripture and of the standard
of the church that God is true, omniscient,
and unchangeable. This he had repudiated,
and would ask the assembly to hear exact
ly what he had said, but which the com
mittee on prosecution had omitted.
He had said this: "Kueneu has
shown that if we insist upon the fulfill
ment of the details of the prophecy of the
Testament irrany of .the predictions have
been reverseo 'by history and the great
body of the Messianic prediction has not
only never been fulfilled, but cannot now
be fulfilled for the reason that its own time
bas passed forever." All depended on the
word "if," which the committee had omit
ted. He hod disclaimed this charge before
and disclaimed it now. He also dis
claimed that he was guilty of teaching
as charged in charge No. 7, that the pro
cess of reden ition extended to the world

New Yokk, May .TO. The Sun's special
from Dallas, Tex., says that Mrs. Lillian
Beeves, a handsome widow of 20, shot
Louis Longennetti six times, us fast as a
double action pistol could fire the bullets.
"Five of them struck Ijonemietti in the

his throat. The woman was arresttd. The
testimony at the prisoner's hearing showed
that Logennetti had roomed at the boarding-house
of Mrs. Beeves and her mother,
Mrs. James Croney. Four weeks ago he
insulted Mrs. Beeves and was ordered from
He secured a room next door nnd began
to circulate stories reflecting on the good
name of Mrs. Beeves. He accused her of
visiting disreputable houses. On the day
of the tragedy the woman stepped to the
sidewalk to get a pitcher of milk. Longen
netti passed along and insulted her. She
drew a pistol from beneath her apron, and
never ceased firing nntil all its chambers
were empty. Justice Skellon held the
prisoner to "the grand jury, placing her bail
at 1,00U. This she gave, and was released
from custody. It is not believed that Mrs.
Beeves will be prosecuted. Public senti
ment is strongly on her side.

ing; of a Corner-Stone Ceremonies in
Chicago, May 80. Decoration Day was
observed all over the country with due
honor. In this city the churches began
the celebration Sunday, many ministers
preaching sermons appropriate to the day.
They were followed Monday by the public
schools, where the story of what it cost to
preserve the Union was retold in words
that made young eyes flash and young
cheeks glow. Patriotism welled np and
bubbled over. "The Star Spangled Ban
ner," ".My Country 'Tis of Thee," "The
lied. White nnd Blue," and other familiar
melodies were sung with heart and voice,
while the air was heavy with the scent of
spring blossoms brought by loving hands
as a tribute to the immortal dead. La3

At the West Division high school flags
and potted plants in profusion rendered
the platform of the assembly room a scene
of rare beauty. General John C. Black
was the orator, nnd his eloquence thrilled
the large assemblage to resolve as he dilated
on the glories of our common country.
Patriotic songs were sung by the pupils
with delightful nest, and the exercises were
eminently successful. In the Northwest
Division high school there were similar
services, the speakers being Principal rio
rum, George A. Vinton, and ex-Alderman
In the Stilinrus of C hicago.
Addresses by local speakers were made
at Knglewood, Hyde Park, Lake, South
Chicago (where Chief McClauglirey was
the speaker), Jefferson and other high
schools near the city. The grammar
schools all over the city and in the sub
urbs joined in the exercises that kept
green the memories of those who died that
the nation miyht live. "Old glory" was
everywhere. In all the schools veterans
detailed by the memorial committee of
Grand Army of the Republic fought their
battles over, stirring the youngsters now
to laughter and anon to cheers, and when
it was all over and the last patriotic song
had been sung there was but one senti
ment expressed '"it was good for us to Ix?
THE MARCH OF THE VETERANS.
A Grand Parade of tlie 15os in l$lne
But all this was only preparatory to the
formal exercises of today. At early morn
the streets were full of soldiers, their wives
and children, making their way to the
cemeteries to strew bright flowers "O'er the
graves where our heroes lie buried." The
task was well done, and there wasn't a
mound t hat covered the remains of one of
those who lost his life in tha struggle
against disintegration that that was not
made lieautiful with lloweis and identified
by a flag. At the tombs of General Han
som, Colonel Mulligan, and ot hers special
services were held.
In the afternoon the G. A. IL laid the
cornerstone of Memorial hall, which is part
of the new library building on Michigan
avenue, with appropriate ceremonies, and
later the parade was held. Anions the
bodies taking part therein were all the
posts of the Grand Army of the Republic
of Cook county. Ransom post of St. Louis,

Horse guard, Swedish dragoons, military
academy cadets and various other military
and civic organizations.
The. parade was witnessed by tens of
thousands of people who lined the whole
route. Tonight there will be a memorial
meeting in the new Art institute at which
there will be music by the Pullman band,
chorus singing by the Norwegian Singing
society, quartette singing by members of

REV. MR. MILBURN EXPLAINS.
He Tells tlie Story of tlie Tragedy That
Lost Iliru a Sim.
Jacksonvili.k, Ills., May :S0. Rev. W.
II. Milburu, the blind preacher, has writ
ten a letter to the press telling the sad
story of his boy's life and death. He says
that Fletcher Harper Milburn would have
been 40 year" old the day his father was TO,
and wus a long time the victim of alcohol
disease. Last summer Fletcher spent some
time at Denver in a retreat, and wus dis
charged supposed to lie perfectly cured,
and gave his father his pledge of honor
that he would never drink again.
The assurance gave Mr. Alilburn im
measurable happiness, but against his
earnest advice Fletcher started on a jour
ney and while away fell ngain before
temptation. Still when Fletcher went to
Chicago his father supposed he had money.
The letter to Fletcher telling him there
was no room at home for him was dictated
by the necessities of the case, as there real
ly was not. Often Mr. Milburn had sent
Lis last dollar to his only son. He had
used his every endeavor to obtain a posi
tion for Fletcher, and when he came to
Chicago the latter had strong recommen
tions from his father, which it was be
lieved would obtain him a situation.
The bereaved father closes as follows:
"With lifted hand I declare before God
and the world that I have used my bi3t
intelligence and unwavering love to rescue
and redeem my boh, and in the unspeak
able anguish of this affliction I appeal to
the kind judgment and sympathy of all
sorts and conditions of men throughout
done Over to the Populist.
New Yokk, May 30. A special from
Topeka, Has., to The Times says: Ex
Governor Charles Robinson, for years the
leading Democrat in Kansas, has finally
cast his fortune with the Populists. Gov
ernor Robinson was one of the factors in
bringing about the fusion between the
Democrats and Populists.
