Triumph of ihe Highland Opponents
of Reunion.
London, August 3.
Mr Baxrie's Avid Llcht burghers stood out
for -t opinions v '.th Scotch tenacity. Wh"»n
liey either could not cr would not follow Ihai
JCew Lights into the Free Church they remained
evjtside the enlarged fold, made a fetich of thslr
theological standards, and became a dwindling
remnant of invconcilcbles. This minority sec

more than eight or ten .--'■ Rations in Scotland.
and it is supplied vith ministtrs mainly from
an analogous religious communion in Ulster,
VThat exultation the: ■■? would have been among
Ihj hard headed burghers if the courts had In
tervened on their behalf and decided that theirs
cn!y was the true -:.t. and that the despised
rtrr-nar.t was entitled to Inherit all the Reformed
te-e&byttriar. properties! The Auld Lichts did
tot have in their time the good fortune of the
trrecoricilabits, do revolted against the fusion
of the United Presbyterian and Free churches
a few years ago. They have had the ordinary
fate of rear guards, which are unwilling either
to cisband or to march on with the new battal-

•Ttere vrf-vc the teceEsionists of 1733 and' the
HPiief Church, which was founded In 1761 by
Ebenezer Ersklne, ana by the fusion of these
two bodies in 1>47 the United Presbyterian
Church was created. The Free Church came
Into existence in 1543. when 450 ministers, led
fcv Dr. Chalmers, seceded from the Established
Presbyterian Church of Scotland, and It at-
Irtcted In ths course of a few decades other
belies of Separatists. The original, or pioneer,
Eeceders, representing an earlier revolt against
the Scotch Established Church, united with the
Tits Church IB 1552, and in 1870 the New
Lights coalesced, with it. after a prolonged
struggle irtth the more conservative section of
the Reformed Presbyterians. Th* reunion of

tdtiits membership of 203.G54, brought together
in 1900 the largest two religious communions
In Scotland which dissented from the estab
lish^ order and polity of Scotch Presbyterian-
Isn. and v.ere dependent upon voluntary sup
port. This fusion was mainiy due to the per
dstetit efforts and astute leadership of Dr.
Ra'.Ey. principal of New College. Edinburgh,
who hid recruited, as the head of the chief
theological school rf the Free Church, a large
body cf enthusiasti; supporters in the ministry.
Vfcen he first proposed union, thirty years ago.
there was less hair splitting: over dogma in the
confessions of faith than over points of con
stitutional polity; but as time went on the vet
erans in opposition dropped off. and the Fu
fcioniEts finally secured. & complete triumph in
the Free Church Assembly. Reunion was virt
ually a financial rather than a theological prob
lem, as each body had its own system of min
isterial support and congregational properties;
but the obstacles were removed in the courts
of five years by a series of compromises and
AOJustrr.ent*, arranged by a joint committee.
Faelon was adopted unanimously in the United
Presbyterian Synod, and by an overwhelming
OEjority— so2 to 29— in the Free Church.
This minority did not know when it was
t«aten. Five of the twenty-rune ministers and
eonereeatUms voting against reunion ceased to
6ffer resistance to the movement, but the re
maining twer.ty-four protested against the ac
tfon of eleven hundred, remained outside the
r.ew United Free Church, and claimed exclusive
authority as ths saving remnant of the Free
Church and absolute control over the ecclesias
tical funds and properties. The minority, rep
resenting mainly Gaelic congregations In the
HlphicriQS, appealed to the Scottish courts, and
*ere unsuccessful before two tribunals. Four
Judges united in the decision that the Free
Church was a self-governing body, and that the
majority had the right to carry the property
with them into the United Free Church. The
minority, defeated in Scotland, appealed to the
House of Lords, fi£d has been triumphantly

court. The previous decisions have been re

M been founded and administered on the vol-
Cttary principle. This Is the Lord Chancellor's

men. to administer all the vested Interests of
the Church founded in 1845.
While the Lord Chief Justice and three other
Judges concur with the Lord Chancellor, after
stating their opinions In their own way, there
fie two disserting voices. Lord Macnaghten
and Lord Lindley express dissent from it in
opinions grounded upon the power of the Gen
eral Assembly of the Free Church to alter doc
trines, to revise standards and to control its
own destinies. "Was she from birth," asks
Lord Macnasnten. "incapable of growth and
development? Was she, in a word, a dead
branch and not a living Church?" Instead of
laying streps upon the establishment principle
la Dr. Chalmers's addresses, or upon obscure
passages in the Westminster Confession, which
can only be regarded as counsels of perfection,
he extols the spiritual independence of the
Free Church and its inalienable right to be
guided by its own experience and to centre upon
a new sphere of development. He does not
question the Lord Chancellor's proofs that at
the time of the disruption of the Church in
Scotland Dr. Chalmers and his associates sin
cerely believed in the establishment principle,
even when they were seceding from the Es
tablished Church; but he contends vith great
force that as time went on ami the splendid
voluntaryism of the Free Church placed it on
a level with the body from which they had
separated, they attached less importance to the
academic profession of faith in the principle of
a connection between church and state. He
also accepts the conclusion of the Scotch Judge 3
that the assembly had power to relax the strin
gency of the dogmatic formulas, so as to keep
within the fold the most enlightened and tol
erant among its probationers. The majority of
the judges who have reversed the decisions of
the Scotch courts do not set their faces against
growth and development of opinions in religious
bodies, nor do they question the right of the
Free Church Assembly to change its beliefs.
hat they say is that when men subscribed
money for a particular object and left it behind
them for the promotion of definite principles,
their successors have no right to divert it from
the oripinal purpose.
The F-otch reply to the final decision of the
House of Lords will probably be that gocd law
may be very poor sense. Dr. Chalmers may
have shrunk from calling himself a champion
of the voluntary principle, Just M the Weslejs
insisted that they were not Nonconformists,
but only sincere and earnest churchmen; but
he. as they did. carried on his work outside the
Established Church, and those who followed
him became convinced of the superior efficacy
?f the voluntary system. After the revolt of
1543 th? Establish*^ Church In Scotland re
foimed its procedure, purified Its administration
and multiplied its activities In overcrowded fac
tory towns and lonely reaches of the coast. Lay
patronage was abolished, the Independence of
ecclesiastical courts was established, congrega
tions were allowed to choose their own minis
ters, and nearly all the grievances of which Dr.
Chalmers complained in his day were removed.
If the establishment principle were as important
as the Lord Chancellor and his associates af>
sert that it was at the beginning of the Chal
mers movement, why as there not, as time
went on, a reunion between the Free Church
and the Established Church? Why did the As
eembly of the Free Church by a great majority
sanction reunion with the United Presbyterians,
who had always stood out for the voluntary
principle? The only answer to these practical
questions Is that the Free Church, in the evolu
tion of its progress, found itself !n closer sym
pathy with voluntary than with established or
ganizations. It began with a protest against
voluntary support and with professions of faith
in a pure and decent established church, and
It ended with unqualified acceptance of the meth
ods cf earlier separatists— the United Presby
terians. As the expectation of forming a new
connection with the state wa*- disappointed,
there was increased satisfaction with the opera
tion of the system of voluntary support. Ex
perience determined the whole course of devel
opment of this vigorous religious body, and
there could never have been any intention on
the part of generous Free Church men that their
wealth should be placed at the disposal of a
Email group of Highland minister!", with ig
norant Gaelic congregations. L N. F.

Reception to Him and Governor in
New -Ham ire.
Sandwich, N. H., Aug. 13.— T0 do honor to the
only living ex-President of the United States and
to the Governor of New-Hampshire, the citizens of
this town to-day tendered a reception to Grover
Cleveland and Governor Nahum J. Eachelder. In
addition to residents of the town and visitors at the
numerous summer resorts In this vicinity, about
twenty guests of prominence were present. Among
those invited went former Governors Frank W.
Rollins and Chester B. Jordan, of New-Hampshire,
and Governor John L. Bates, of Massachusetts.
Governor Bachelder. with a small party, came here
from Concord this morning and were guests of
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland at luncheon. The
former President is also entertaining President
John L. Finley of the University of the City of
New-York and Mrs. Finley. It was understood
that the reception was to be entirely informal, and
that there would bo no specchmaking. '
Mr. Cleveland came to Sandwich village from hi 3
summer home, and he met the Governor and party
at the hotel, where the public reception was held,
Governor Bachelder. Mrs. Btichelder and Mr.
Cleveland receiving the townspeople.
Contrary to expectations, after the reception, a
large crowd assembled In front of the hotel, and
Mr. Cleveland and Governor Eacheldcr spoke to
them briefly. Governor Bachelder expressed pleas
ure that Mr. Cleveland had come to New-Hamp
shire, and he hoped that the visit would be often
Mr. Cleveland, In responding, said he had found
in New-Hampshire all the comfort and rest he had
been led to expect. He said that as a representa

sion of historic battlefields, she could not forget
that New-Hampshire soldiers had fought there, and
he hoped the time would never come when any
section of the country would say that it was inde

that it was a "servitude of honor, Indeed. 1 and
closing by expressing satisfaction at having had
an opportunity to meet his neighbors.
Effect of His Death on French Politics Dis
cussed in Paris.
Paris. Aug. 13.--The funeral of M. "Waldeck-
Rousseau, the former Premier, occurred this morn
ing at the Church of Saihte-Clothilde, the Interior
of which was hung with black. It was character
ised by extreme simplicity. Comparatively few in
vitations were issued, and uniforms were conspic
uous by their absence, the only official deputation
iseing that of the Order of Advocates, wearing
their robes. The King of England, the German
Emperor and Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria were
specially represented. The Cabinet Ministers and
diplomats attended in their private capacity. There
was a considerable crowd of people outside the
church. After the service the funeral procession
crossed the greater part of the city on the way to
Montmartro Cemetery, where the burial took place.
The death of M. Waldeck-Rousseau monopolized
attention in the earlier part of the week, and its
effect on the future of French politics is being
warmly discussed. In spite of the failing health
ol the former Premier, it is asucrted that Premier
Combes regarded him as a serious rival, and It '.3
Improbable that any man among the Moderate
Republicans could exercise such Influence aa he
would have possessed in the event of his recov
ery. The former members of his Cabinet, notably
MM. beygues and Milierand, will pursue his pol
icy of opposition to extreme antl-re.tglous meas
ures when Parliament reassembles, the latter be
iii.* retrnrded as the coming man. But no one Is
able to fill the place of the departed statesman,
whose strong personality and honesty of purpose
gave him a high place among his contemporaries.
His death, therefore, strengthens the present gov
She Got a Divorce Because Her Husband

Chicago. Aug. — A dispatch to "The Tribune*
from Denver says that because Howard Brynlng.
of Kansas City. was too fond of his wife and
acquiesced in everythlns She did, Mrs. Bryning
has secured a divorce.
"My husband had no backbone," said Mrs. Bryr-
Ing. in talking over th« utrange reason for a di

got It without question. Th»re Is no satisfaction
In that kind of humdrum existence for me."

Attorney General Moody and Speaker Can
non in His Party on the Dolphin.
Newport, R. 1., Aug. 13.— Paul Morton, Secretary
of the Navy, and his party. Including Attorney
General Moody, arrived here thla afternoon from
Brooklyn on the dispatch boat Dolphin. Others
on board were Speaker Cannon, with Miss Helen
Cannon, his daughter; Representative George K.
Foss, of Illinois, chairman of the House Commit
tee on Naval Affairs: Mrs. Morton and Miss
Pauline Morton, wife and daughter of the Secre
tary of the Navy, and Miss Jean Morten, the
daughter of Joy Morton, of Chicago. Senator Al
drlch, of Rhode Island, later joined the party,
•which was entertained at dinner this evening by
Senator and Mrs. Wettnore. On Monday Attorney
General Moody will deliver an address at the War
College here. Later the Dolphin, with the same
persons on board, will sail for Boston, where.it
i:> expected to arrive on Tuesday to take part In
the Grand Army of the Republic encampment.
Secretary Morton Is on a trip of Inspect! in to the
Northern navy yards.
Newport, R. 1., Auk. 13 (Special).— Entertainments
in Newport last week have been limited to I M nu
merous luncheons and dinners given by the cot
tagers, there not having been one function of any
note. Even the "shanty" of the Clam Bake Club has
been deserted, It being one of the quietest weeks of
the season from a social standpoint. To a large
extent the weather has been responsible for this
state of affairs, si it has been a depressing week,
and one in which there has been an overabundance
nf rim
From this It should not ho Inferred that there are
not to be any lnr?e affairs, as next week will see
some large entertainments. Mrs. Hermann Oel
lisas Is to Kl-e a 'white ball" on Friday night.
There Is some disappointment that Mrs. William
Aftor Will not give her customary ball this fen
son, but will confine her entertaining to a series of
state dinners, which will begin the latter part of
the month.
There is now talk of arranging for a women's
race with the 20-footer yachts', which In seasons
past have been features of the Newport season, In
thesa races the women have taken charge of the
yachts and steered the boats, while men have been
on board as the crews. This year there are on!y
four of the boats out, and little Interest has been
taken In the races, but it Is now announced that
E. D. Morgan Ii to put the Puck in commission,
which Will make the races a little more interesting.
Among those who are mentioned as the. possible
skippers for the boats are Miss Anna. Sands. Misa
Caroline (Jrosvenor. Mrs. John Jacob Astor, Miss
Busk and Mrs. Lawrence Waterbury. All of them
have sailed the boats In the past and are good sail
ors. It is understood that Pembroke Jones will
offer a cup for th!* race, the. trophy going to the
woman winning the race Instead of to the boat.
The boats and their owners are the Carolina, Pem
broke Jones: the Raccoon. John R. Drecel; the
Breeze, William G. Roelker, jr.: the Eleanor,
George Wldencr, and the Puck, Edwin D. Morgan.
Tho polo season at Newport ocglns on Monday
r.ext, and there is every indication that it will be
the most brilliant that Newport hits seen in some
years. There are three series to be played, for
the Newport cups, the Westchester cups and the
Brenton Reef cups. There has been a large de
mand tor parking spaces at the polo lot. and to
enliven the occasion the services of the Fort
Adams band has been secured for the games.
Thus far there have been a number of practice
frames at the field, the players being the younger
members of the cottage colony, and even these
games have attracted a large number of people.
The coming to Newport of the fleet of the New-
Tork Yacht Club Will enliven matter* considerably
the coming week, when tho yachts remain most
of th« time here. There will be a number of ruofis
Including those for tha cups offered by coionfii
John Jacob .A.-H.r. and this is the blue ribbon
event of the cruise. Colonel Astor and Henry
Walters always take large parties out for this
event, and Commodore Gerry will, as usual, or
tertain a large stag party on the day -in question
There will also bo nunieious affairs arranged
among the cottages in honor of the visiting
yachtsmen, and, taking it all In all. with the ten
nis at the Casino, it viil be the busiest week of
the season with the fashionable set.
Washington. August 13.
REPAIRS TO TIG.- The report of the board of
survey on the tug Nina has been received at the
Navy Department and referred to the naval board
on construction. Repairs and other changes are
recommended at the cost of $42,796, and it is sug
gested that the work be done i> : the New Tork
Navy r»rd.
to designate one of the o!der na\ai cruisers for
use in instructing enlisted men in firing torpedoes.
The so-called dynamite cruiser Vesuvius has been
selected for a similar purpose and will be used as
a sort of lloating torpedo school. That vessel is
now being converted for that servije, but when
ready it will not answer all the purposes con
ited. for the reason that it Will have no sub
merged tubes, as would be possible on board a
cruiser such as the San Francisco. That snip has
now been ordered from the Asiatic Station, and
may be selected as a torpedo training ship. This
Is one of the suggestions of Rear Admiral G. A.
Converse, made while he -was chief of ordnance.
He discovered that with the Increased employment
of the torpedo on board ships of war there was
no means of special instruction in or drilling with
the submarine missile. This work Is considered as
important us target practice with the turret guns
or the guns of the aapersTtructure. Accordingly, at
the next target practice of the ships of war there
will be preliminary an*i record firing of torpedoes,
results with -which will be taken into considera
tion in determining relative efficiency and accuracy
In gunnery.
War Department is advised of the acquittal of
Lieutenant Joseph A. Marmon, 4th Infantry, who
was tried at his station in the Philippines on the
charge of having assaulted the officer of an army
transport while the latter was on duty. It was
shown to the satisfaction of the court that Mar
mon did attack the transport officer, striking him
with bis fist and knocking him to the deck, but
it was also shown that the assault was Justified
and that the accused officer had due and sufficient
provocation. Lieutenant Marmon has been re
stored to duty.

Harrow Escape from Running on Reef on
Sound Shore.
Stamford, Conn. Aug. 13.— The schooner yacht
Idlewild, of the Xew-Tork Tacht Club Beet, now on
its annual cruise up the Sound, hurl a narrow escape
from cumin* to trrief on the coast reef of Shlppan
yesterday afternoon. But for th« timely assistance
red by Harry Sebastian in his auxilhiry yncht
Merica the '-'Ik ya.ht undoubtedly would have
grounded on the reef. All tha schooner's sails were
set, but there was scarcely a breath of air. The
tide was running In strongly, and despite the efforts
of her captain the blsr pleasure craft was slowly
drifting toward the dangerous rocks. There were
many men and women aboard the boat, guests of
the owner. All were more or less excited. When
Mr. Sebastian got alongside the schooner was
already in the danger zone, but had water enough
to float clear. A hawser was passed from the
schooner, and the little auxiliary, with her sails set
and her four-horsepower engine straining to the
utmost, took the big craft in tow.
Results from the Repulse of Russian
Ships Of Port Arthur.
Washington. Aug. 13.— The serious repulse of
the Russian ships off Port Arthur has the effect
of diminishing the fleet at that port, and to that
extent makes it easier for the Japanese to defeat
the next attempt of the Russians to set to Vladi
vostok, although much depends upon the con
dition of the Russian ships which have made
other ports. It is possible for the least dam
aged of these to get to Vladivostok, if they de
sire, although H Is evident that in some cases
repairs must be made before the long sea trip
can be accomplished. The scattered Russian
fleet furnishes at the same time a problem for
tho Japanese. The separation of the ships was
probably planned, say the naval officers here. In
the event of a defeat, as the division of the
Russian command makes it har^.'r for the Jap
anese to cope with the situation on the sea.
It must be an immediate question whether
some of the vessels in the neighborhood of Port
Arthur should not be withdrawn for servtc*
elsewhere that they may be kept in touch with
the remoter ships of the enemy. It is not ex
pected that the latter will be able or will expect
to do much damage to the Japanese, but they
are a menace, no matter how Insignificant they
may be, and it is desirable that they be pre
vented from having undisputed passage. It is
thought by some of the naval experts that the
Japanese win assign certain of their ships to
watch for the Russian vessels when they emerge
from the three ports to which they fled. Thla
surveillance will decrease the Japanese fleet off
Port Arthur and perhaps enable the Russian
shir? at that place to gain the sea. If this is
again attempted it Is evident that the Japanese
intend to engage the Russians. It is to the
advantage of the latter to get to Vladivostok,
and it i.« equally necessary for the Japanese to
frustrate this plan.
TLd naval omcera in Washington flnd nothing
to revise in their estimate of the relative values
of the opposing forces. They have all along
g-iven the credit of superiority to the Japanese.
mainly on account of an obedient, well dis
ciplined and equally well trained personnel, ele
ments which count for much in a fl^rht such as
that off Port Arthur. What surprisas the ob
servers here is the readiness and effectiveness
v.-lth which the Japanese, after their long vigil.
received the enemy, who should have been the
better piepared for the collision. Naval offle-rs
believe the Russians will make another attempt
to get away fro:n Port Arthur, and that. soon.
This naval action on the purr of the Russians
impresses the experts with the Importance of
the theory that the situation at the Russian
base is becoming less secure.
Merchant Cuts His Throat on La Touraine.
Bcl'evlng that he was losing his mind, Emlle
Hirschfeid. thirty-eight years old. of -no. 2,239 Sut
ter-st.. Sari Francisco, a first cabin passenger on
La Touraine, attempted saiclJe yesterday morning
by cutting* his throat, as the vessel was nearing
port. From a note which the man wished deliv
ered to hi 3 brother, Alfred. It appeared that he was
haunted by a fear of insanity and that he had
been in ill health for some time. His act ended a
voyage va which tie had had little to say., either
to the ship's officers i r lo ths passengers.
it a a, m., J d Francisco,
who occupied the next room to Hirschfeid. became
aware that some one waa persistantly pounding
on the wall separating the rooms. He told one or
igether they entered the room and
found Hirschfeid standing with his rasor in nia
hand, and an ugly worm- in his throat. Aa they
entered, he said to Aaron:
. have Uone it."
Dr. Lretellier dressed the wound and the man was
carried to the ship's hospital. When the vessel
reached her pier the physician- told the customs
men that the man's condition was so serious that
if they wanted to examine him it must bo at their
own responsibility.
Hlrschfeld is a merchant.
"My brother." said Alfred Hirschfeid. who met
him on the boat. "Is perfectly sane. I cannot talk
about the affair. I cannot help what others say
waa the causa of his act."
Strong Flood Tide the Cause — A Girl Hurt
The ferryboats Chicago and New-Jersey, of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company, came Into col
lision near their slip at Cortlandt-st.. last night
shortly after 8 o'clock. A girl who was a passen
ger en the Chicago was injured, and about thirty
feet of the guard rail of the New-Jersey was
ripped away- The cause of the accident was a
strong flood tide.
When the boats came together there was consid
erable excitement. The Chicago was hit on the
women's cabin side, and those in the cabin made a
rush to the other side of the boat.
Lena NrUratonske, eight years old. of No. 144 Es
sex-st.. Jersey City, was on the Chicago with her
mother and father, She was thrown from her feet
and hurled against the benches In the cabin. She
suffered t'rom severe bruises about the right side
and elbow.
Both boats continued on their trips.
