He Brings Out His Own Position in Plain and Strong Language. t-rore In the Teesm Which We rave-So Admitted by Zvery Biblical soholar -MeCeok's Reply. W.Asame roxo , May 80.-At the opening of the Presbyterian general assembly this morning the committee on bills and over. tsres submitted a substitute for the answer it made yesterday to the overtures regard ita the deliverance of the general assembly at Portland, Ore., in 1892, on the inspira tion of the Bible. The substitute retf Arms the deliveranee of 1892, that the origl nal scripture of the Old and New Tests ments being immediately inspired of God are without erior. This deliverancsenunciates no new doctrine and imposeS no new test of orthodoxy. The report will be consid. ered later, The assembly then resolved itself into an ecclesiastical court, and Dr. Briggs re sumed the argument in his own defense, oaenpying all the remainder of the morn ing. For a considerable portion of his time Brigge seed the same line of argument he nsed before the New York presbytery, with sueh omissions and additions as to make it timely and pertinent. Hisaigument was carefully prepared and entered deeply into the technical intricaeies of the case. Con ) pning, Dr. Briggs said: "Let me refer to a word spoken by D:. Lampe yesterday. He said, if I understood him rightly, 'We know nothing of Christ save what we get in the Bible story.' [Dr. Lampe nodded in confirmation of the ao:uraoy of the quota tion.] He admits it. Are you ready to be live that, commjessionersa Do we learn and know nothing of him throuegh personal re latiods that we enjoy through the Lord's seuppe ? I oannotesbseribeto that doctrine. It is ank herer, if ever heresy was pro munlLted In the history of a church. "Now lt mee call attention to another error made by Dr. Lampe. He said the Bible is the anal authority given to us by Jesu Christ, and the apostles. Just think of tlht, bretthenl Did they give as noth ing aut what they found in the books of the Old T'stament? Dr. Lampe's state ment is dresdfully wrong. Another state ment by Dr. Lampe in his argnn.ent ses terdiry was that the faith of the Christian chureh is based solely upon the seriptute. Are yeo ready to aseept that? I am not. My faith is based upo the Lord Jesus oChrisand Him gmone." After recess Dr. Briags continued his de fense. "I now wish," said he.' "to bring forth my position. I shall adhere to the polioy which I thus far have followed with regard to erroiiRsin the holy scripture. I refused to saccept the dooms that the orig inal autographs are inerrant. I main tained there are errors in the texts which we have, and that it is improbable that the original texts, it we could discover them, would be much, different from those we have in that regard. 1 refused to affirm that there are errors in the original auto graphs because it is unscientific and it is uascholarly, and it is against the trash loving spirit of Christianity to make at firmations of a dogma where we have no certain evidence. 1 always refrained as far as possible from pointing to errors in the present text of the scripture, but every biblical scholar admits them." When Dr. Briggs, inolesing, solemnly challinged the court to judge him justly, the scene was most impressive, and even the most unarelenting anti-Briggs men in the assembly admitted that the alleged heretio had made a wonderfully strong presentation of his case. Col. MoCook then proceeded to olese the case for appellants, The speaker traversed anew the grounds of the tecohing of. de fendant, end asserted that despite the lat ter's avowals and explanations, they are in opposition to the holy scriptures and con fession of faith, and therefore gross errors in the eye of the church. He also asserted that the doct ne ast issue are essential. notwithstanding Prof. Briggs' declaration of opinion to the contrary. Befo.e adjouaning till evening Prof. Brown offered prayer for the president of the United States and the great government which he represents. LREPORTt OF BOARDS.

The report of the permanent committee on tenaeranoe referring to the World's fair eise: "We cannot contem plate except with feeling of shame the pro posed speotaule to be placed before all the world of a vast national grog shop and a vast national exhibition of the trampling down of law." The establishment by con gress of an impartial commission of in quiry concerning the liquor traflts is favored. Local option is not regarded as the best and ultimate solution of the liquor problem, but the rost of the presbyteries he's favored it as a stepping-stone toward general' prohibition. Among all the re ports of presbyteries the license system has no advooete or apologist. The report of the board of church ereetion fund shows that during the year there were 282 applications for assistance, upon which grants were made aegregating $105,. 191 and loans $61,192. This exceeds any previous year in the history of the board and still thee is an insaufloieney of sup plies. More than one-half of the churehes on the roll of the assembly do not con. t ibute to this fund, and the board begins the new year with en empty treasury. The report of the board in charge of the missions for freedmen shows that nearly $200,000 annually is being exrended in this direction with good results. The expendl tures last year amounted to $191,002, while the reeelr is were $178.310. Under this board there pre 150 ordained miniate s andr 258 chorehes, with a membership of 16,2.79, and 19.172 oundayr shool scholars.

"In Chins," says the report. "notwitnetnnding petty persecutions and apprehensions of more eerious opposition in retaliation of the iniquitors legislation of our goveuament egainat the OhInese in the United States, steady progress has been made." The total number of conversions reported by all missionarles for the year was 3,4r2, an in crease of 10 per cent over the preceding period. The total receipat from all sonures amounted to $1,014,504, of which women's societies and boards contributed $32J,(89. The report of the board of education shows that the demand for ministers is ahead of the supoly. 'Two years ago the vaoant churches numbered 1,185 and last year 1, 244, of which U68 have a membershio ranging from 100 to over 1,000. The west ern synode particularly have suffered, nota bly Nebraska, Kansas and Minnesota. Last year there graduated from the seminaries 243 students, an increase of only fifteen, and of these only 200 available for the home field. The report of the board of home missions does not show the increase that was hoped for at the beginning of the rear. During the last year there have been organized only 182 new churches-a result dne chiefly to a want of funds. The year began with a debt of $71.160, nearly all of which has been cancelled and new work to the amount of $31,444 undertaken, The total re reipta of the board were $957, 454.

EMILIO CASTELAR. The Apeasula Republican Announces His VWithdrawal Vrren Public Life. Emilio Cestelar, some time dictator of Spain and for nearly forty years conspicu ous among Spanish republicans, announced recently that he had retired from public life. He made his declaration in these words: "I shall remain a republican until I die, but I shall not act against the mon arbcy, as I am convinced that for the preso sat this is the only stable and progressive tom of government possible in Spain. In this conviction is to be found the reason why I have asked may friends and my uarty, now freed from my long political hisetory, to enter loyally the ranks of the liberals and to do all in their power to help the monarchy. "1 hope that the next change in the min istry will bring one of my friends into of floe in order that the fusion of republicans and liberals may be sealed and conseorated. I myself, far from publis affairs, shall dr vote the rest of my days to the study of history and to literary work." POWER OF NATURALIZATION. Deilded to Lie Entirely With the Federal Congress. ST. PAUL. Minn., May 30.-The United States oirenit court of appeals, with Judges Sanborn. Thayer and Shiras on the bench, yesterday handed down an important de cision limiting the power of naturalization to the national congress. It is held that the power granted to congress by the con ,titution to establish a uniform rule of nat uralization is conclusive, and laws enacted by congress in the exeroise of this power constitute the only rule by which a foreign subject may become a eitiztn of the United States or of a state, within the meaning of the federal constita tion and laws. It is not in the power of a state to dena tionalize a foreign subject who has not complied with the federal naturalization laws and constitute him a citizen of the United States or of a state. A foreign subject who is qualified to be come a citizen of the United States under the revised statutes does not become such by filing a declaration of intention so to do. He must comply with all the provisions of the federal statutes. Betrayed Them for Spite.

SILVER STATUE UNVEILEO Montana's Unique Contribution to the Arteof the Great World's Fair. Three Tally-Ho Coaches Loaded With Montana People Ar rive Too Late. Major Maginnis Delivers an Addrese Mrs. Rickards Unveils the Statue Editor (uilnn Speaks Briefly. Bpeeial to The Indeoandent. CmIAoo, May 30.-Members of the Men tans Columbian club, with a few invited friends. this afternoon went in a body to the unveiling of Montana's silver statue at the fair grounds. Three tally-ho coaches were engaged, and it was a merry crowd that rods from the headquarters of the Columbia club, In the party were: Gen. Charlee H. Warren and wife, Judge E. L. lr han. RIev. O.K. . Glford. Arthur Woe ell and wife, Col. W, H. Naney, the Misses Hubbard, C. E. Harvey, M. D., the Misses Towne, Frank L. Fowler and wife, W. F. Brock, Cecil Hastings, H. W. White and wire, John Foy, M.J. Sheridan, F. L. Met. calf, T..C. Brainard, It. II. Duncan, M. J. Connell and wife. Lient. Dean, Mrs. Beatty, J. M. Corrigan, F. H. Corrigan, W. W. Warren, Mrs. R. H. Park. Mrs. E. T. Marshall. M. Kretuinger, J. O. Harvey and wife, and members of the Chicago, Mon tana and New York press. The drive was attended with few inot dents. Col. Joseph O. Harvey, who acted as host for the party, passed from coach to coach, entertaining the riders with his ever ready fund of stories and the reading of Maggie Cline's latest song. When the party arrived at the mining building the ceremonies were all ove-, and it was with considerable disappointment that they pushed their way through the immense throng of people only to find that they they were too late. But they saw the statue nevertheless. It was just twenty minutes past three when Major Martin Maginnis stepped upon the platform to deliver the address that preceded the unveiling. For some reason the Columbian band, which had been engaged for the occasion, did nit pet in an appearance, so that it was without musio that the ceremonies proceeded. The impatient crowd began to hiss at the long delay, but their complaints were tnrned to cheers when Major Maginnis be gan to speak. He spoke in glowing terms of the brilliant future before the state, of her untold wealth, of the enterprise of hew citizens and her wonderful natural re sources. When he finished Mrs. Riekards, wife of the governor of the state, stepped forward and, taking up a small silken cord. gave it a gentle poll and the stars and stripes which enfolded the silver image of Justice fell away, exposing the statue for the first time to public gaze. The crowd gave vent to wild ehears while the band plryed "America." When the applause had died away Hon. J. M. Quinn, editor of the Butte Miner, made the closing address. He spoke of the statue as a work of art, of how it came to be made and how it represented the wealth, enterprise and artistic tastes of the citizens of that state. At the close of the exercises the Montana commissioners entertained their friends and a large number of exposition officials and representatives of foreign nations at luncheon. During the fair Ada Bahan's counterfeit presentment in silver will stand in the center of Montana's mining booth, at the southeast end of the main avenue of the mines and mining building. The figure is life size and probably the largest ever oast in precious metal. It weighs, with the globe and eagle on which it stands, nearly 1,000 pounds. The silver was tar. nisbed by the First National bank, of Helena, through Ex-Gov. S. T. Hauser, and Hon. W. A. Clark, of Butte. After the fair the figure will be sent on an eshibitien tour around the world. Around the statue are grouped abundant evidences of Mon tana's great mineral wealth. Apart from the statue the silver dirplay is very fine. ALL KINDS OF DOCTORS. Meet in the World's Medlcal Congress at Chicago. CrmoAoo.
