TUESDAY. October 36, 1886.
DBSOBIPTIO* M 00
Next Tuesday, November 2d, is the
day of election. No party issues have
made necessary a stirring campaign.
Indeed, except for the primary elections
it has seemed little like campaign year.
Tho Republican party has put iorth .10
ticket. In all probability thoy will not
ote. Still it is not the part of wisdom
to act upon this probability and remain
away from the polls. It is possible for
sectet work to be dono. We don't think
it likely; nevertheless, don't let us be
too Bure. Don't let us trust "our friends,
tho enemy." They are like the nogroo's
mule, Myou truss 'm, he trow you." It
is well to keep up our party organizations
and exhibit our party strength.
Such show of unity and organization
* - -t_ _ # i _ /r *
may Keep aown in ine iuiure any uuori
on the part of the Republio&ni* to revive
their old corpse. It is all well to "Agitate*
and "discuss" party measures and
party actions. It does well to do this.
If there be weakness or "imbecility," or
"extravagance" in the State government
as administered by the Democratic party,
let it be discussed and talked about. If
true, it will bo corrected. If false, it
will meet with its proper rebuke. But
let this be done within the party. It is
folly to weaken our party linos in the
face of the standing menace of a negro
and Republican element, ready and
eager to take advantago of any disruption.
By all means turn out on November 2,
and vote. It is not alone your privilege
aed prerogative?it is your duty. Tou
owe it to the nominees on the State
ticket. You owe it to your Congressional
nominee. You owo it to your County
nominees to give them *11 from their
own county a full and solid vote.
k The Synod of South Carolina, the
highest Church court in the State, has
Tequosted Dp. James Wooirow to resign
the chair he now occupies in the
Theological Seminary at Columbia. Dr.
"Woodrow has refused, and they know
not what to do with him. The whole
affair has been unfortunate from the beginning,
and has servod to almost break
up me Theological Seminary. The
blame, wo believe, rests upon both parties
in tbo church. Dr. Woodrow has
undoubtedly been persecuted, but we
believe that some time ago he could
have resigned his chair with honor to
himself. The synods that have the
Seminary in charge threaten, in case of
Dr. Woodrow's continuod refusal, to do
away with the chair, and in that caBe we
presume they will have to give up the
endowment. Altogether it is a bad
jness the church has gotton into, and we
do not see how they are to get out of it,
without injury to either the church or
J)r. Woodrow, or both.

$re have learned from dear experience 1
that all we have to do to let a railroad I
give us the go-by is to let it alone and 1
not exert ourselves. It has come to ]
this, that thoso most interested in a '
railroad will pay their money for it, and
will get it. Charters amount to little or ,
nothing as regards the location of a
road, for it will certainly go where the ]
most money is. President Mills and ,
?ho directors, we believe, are dosiroun of (
bringing their road by Abbeville, if we ,
will only do our part by it. Something ]

^ Synod of Sonth Carolina.
?e (Ncwa and Courier.\
Cheraw, October 21.?The Synod of
P" South Carolina assembled here last night
it, in the Prosbyterian church. The attended
ance of delegates was much larger than
that on the first day of many previous
Synods, a total of ninety-six having an18
swered the roll-call. Of thuae were
>y ministers and 51 ciders. Among the cleri,g
cal delegate* already in attendance are
some of those who hnve at previous meetings
of the Synod taken a prominent part
r" in the evolution controversy, namely. Dr.
J. L. Girardeau, I)r. J. K. Jordan, Dr. J.
B. Mack, Dr. W. T. Thompson, and others.
Ilia not known definitely whether
'ft Dr. Woodrow will be present during the
s- session, but the prevailing opinion is
a that he will appear sometime during the
latter part of the week.
*y Of Charleston's clerical delegation
'd Drs. Thompson and Brackett and W. F.
d- Junkcn are present, tho Kov. C. E.
r> Chichester is absent.
The proceedings of the Synod were
*? opened last night at 8 o'clock by the
*y usual preliminary devotional exercises,
in The church, quite a commodious bui'ding,
was crowded to excess, and the
music was exceptionally line. As is
L'" customary, the sermon of the occasion
,(1 was preached by the retiring Moderator,
ic who on this occasion is the Kev. VV. W.
r8 Mill, of Camden. The discourso was on
| tho text: Romans, 12th chapter, 1st
verse: "I beseech you, therefore, brelhls
ren, by the mercies of God, that ye
id present your bodies a living sacrifice,
js wholly acceptable unto God,"'&c.
The lesson drawn from tho Scripture
as expoundod was that the beneficent
and gracious purpose of God was not
thoroughly accomplished whon the sinner
was first converted and turned
towards salvation. There was more
necessary, and more required?that the
Christian should consecrate himself to
God. As an argument, the sneaker
said, the text was powerful in itself, but
Y taken in connection with the previous
f utterances of tho Apostlo Paul, was
irrofutable. Tho position assumed by
30 the Rev. Mr. Mills was that the torui
u mercy as used in tho text implied a
re precedent exelrcise of God's power and
3. graciousness to mankind, and that it was
a tho duty of the Christian to so regulate
n his life as to be worthy of the Creator's
loving kindness^. Ho also incidentally
cotnparcd the text with other Scriptural
b- passages to provo tho doctrine of preit
destination. Tho Hev. Mr. Mills preqnnJnri

jj and entertaining manner; his reasoning
was logical and acute and was delivered
^ with much force and offect.
1* After the sermon the roll of the Presn
bytery was called to determine the iiumy
her of delegates present. As already
te noted ninety-six delegates answered to
<e their names. ThcModerator then announced
that, his term of service having expirie
c d, the tirnt business in order was the ellH
ection of hitt successor. Nominations
d being then in order the following gentle*
? men were named fbr the position: Dr.
>e W. T. Thompson, of Charleston; Dr. J.
0 E. Jordan, of Winnsboro', and tho Rev.
^ E. M. Law, of Spartanburg. Iramedi
~ ately, howover, upon his nomination Dr.
'8 Thompson arose and said that bo fully
w appreciatod tlio honor which the Synod
did him by entertaining his name as
xi worthy of the position, lie begged leave,
7 however, to deolino the nomination for
. the reason that tho selection ofaModerator
had once already boon made from
y tho Charleston Presbytery, to which he
i- belonged. There was, howover, an equalD
ly grave reason, ho said, that prompted
him to earnestly request that his name
D be withdrawn, and that was the probability
of the necessity of bis leaving the
10 Synod before the end of its delibera5r
it A motion waa then made to allow Dr.
I- Thompson to withdraw his name. The
it motion was put to the house and, although
the viva voce voteJJ was appar*
ently equally divided, tho .Moderator
ld decided the vote in favor of Dtr. Thomp%t
gone. The two remaining candidates,
t- Dr. J. E. Jordan and the Rev. K. M.
r_ Law, were then votod for, tho rosult
Ie Doing: Jordan 58, and Law 88. Tho
, organisation wan theh completed by the
election of the Rer. R. A. Webb as
aasistant clerk, tho Rot. E. M. Law rei
taining his position as stated clerk.
Although Dr. Jordan is and has always
been a pronounced opponent of Dr.
Woodrow on evolutionary matters, and
tho Rev. Mr. Law has been one of his
staunchest supporters, it cannot bo inferred
that there is any significance in
the defeat of Mr. Law. At least no great
deduction can bo drawn from the history
of the two preceding Synods, for at each
of them the majority vote olecting the
Moderator took final action which was
diametrically opposed to the views of
the presiding officer on matters touching
Dr. Woodrow's views, and his relations
to the church. There aro, however, some
delegates who are of the opinion that
the vote deciding the moderatorship
is a fair test of the drift of the opinion
of the Synod on the action of the General
Attscinbly, which met last May in
Augusta. That Assembly gave utterance
to two propositions, one declaring
the views of the church as to the manner
of the formation of Adam's body, and
the other to the effect that Dr. Woodrow's
views of the evolution of our great
progenitor are repugnant to the Scriptures.
The Assembly, however, went
further and recommended to the four
Synods controling the board of directors.
->f the Theological Seminary, to
have Dr. Woodrow removed from his
professorship. Some of the Presbyteries
have already expressed themselves
on the right of the General Assembly
to make such utterances, and
most especially in vtew of the possibility
that they might have prejudiced L)r.
Woodrow before the Augusta Presbytery,
before which he was subsequently
tried, but acqilittcd, on the charge of
heresy. Other Presbyteries, on the
contrary, have unequivocally endorsed

is not improbable that the question in'volred
iu the deliverance of the General
Assembly will cotne up before the Synod
through a committee report on which
the discussion will be renewed. It is
anticipnted that the arguments pro and
con will be acrimonious, or, at least,
disputatious. The discusion will necessarily
involve the reopening of the old
issues, although in a merely incidental
relation. What the particular line of
discussion will be or how long the arguments
will continue it is just now impossible
to forecast. It is equally impossible
to state definitely what effect
a decision reached by this Synod, as to
the resolutions passed by tho General
Assebly, will have on the merits of the
M. F. T.
The delegates from tho Presbyterian
church of this city to the synod at Cheraw
have returnod. The session was a
remarkably brief one and was almost
entirely devoted to the Woodrow matter.
Routine business went by the
board and when l)r. Woodrow's case
hsd been disposed of the body hastilj
adjourned on Friday afternoon.
Mr. Hose said last night that the synod's
action was a decisive victory for
me anti-vvoortrow element and would
probably settle the matter finally. Three
members of the board of trustees of the
theological seminary were elected, two
of the vacancies being caused by expiration
of terras, and the third resulting <
from a resignation. Strong anti- Woodrow
men were elected. The board heretofore
has been in Dr. Woodrow's favor
by a majority of one, but is "now overwhelmingly
against him. The board
was instructed to ask for Dr. Woodrow's '
resignation and to remove him if ho re- .
fused to give it, this action being taken
after u telegraphic enquiry to the doctor
if he would resign had elicited an emphatic
The synod endorsed the action of the
general assembly on the question of evolution,
and disapproved the action of
the last board of trustees of the seminary,
