Dr. Walter D. Buohanan will read at tho morning servico to-morrow his resigna tion as pastor of the Thirteenth Htreet Pres bvterlan Church. Ills action grows out ot an effort on tho part ut himself and a majority of lila congrosatlon to fell the present church property and unite with the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church, at Fourth avenue and Twenty-second street. This proposition, while tavorod by the Fourth Avenuo Church nnil a majority of the Thirteenth street con gregation, was ovorwhetmlngly defeated In Prosbvlery, When seen yesterday concern ing his proposed notion Dr. Buchanan said: "While I cannot give tho wording of my resignation. I have no objection to saying that my reasons for offering It are threat First, there are two tactions In the congregation. The minority is ;i large onu for a minority, and has posltlvo convictions Second, there has grown out of honest efforts to serve Uod nnd' .Sew York Presbyiertanlsm. el'her by the strengthening of this church or bv us consoli dation with fcomo other church, n grest'dcnl of unpleasantness Third, progress under ex isting conditions is Impossible.

Many persons who nro believed to be well Informed think the Fourth Avenue Church will ask Dr Bu chanan to become its pastor. It may do this In the hone of bringing to It the majority of the Thirteenth street congregation, who say they will go where their pastor goes. 7)f.V ALT.ES'S TT1T.T. COXTRHTEn.

"I talked with Uuth Howard the day she was released from tho Tombs." said tho chaplain, "and she told mo thnt sho left with the kind liest feelings toward every one with whom she had como in contact. Kho said thnt when first taken to tho prison sho was confined with a number ot disorderly women who an noyed her a grent deal, but when she complained to tho Warden ho gavo her a cell on tho upper tlor of tho women's prison removed from tho women who had annoyed her. Before she left she thanked the Warden for his courteous treatment, and I am aston ished thnt she should mako tho assertions which are attributed to her.

HK 1TAS FREE TO ACCEPT OR RE.TECT un. iiRiaas, caxoxibts bay. 111. hop Whitehead of Pittsburg Gives Ills Views of the Church I.nw " the 0.uei thin nnd They Are Advene in Ill.linp Tntler Dean Hoffman Thinks Similarly. The Churchtnan, the official organ of the Protestant Episcopal Church, printed n letter yesterday from Bishop Whltehoad of Pitts burg, In which he asserts vary positively, ns have many othor eminent churchmen, thnt Bishop Potter was not compelled by tho canons of tho Church to advance Dr. Ilrlggs to the priesthood. "A Bishop's powers nro constitutional, not absolute." Bishop Potter said In his open letter. "In the matter of ordination he enn only net when cottaln preliminary action by others has been had. but when this Is the case, nnd a can didate for orders stands at the threshold ot the ministry, the canons of ordination declare that tho lllshoti 'shall.' not 'may.' then proceed to take 'order for the ordination' of the person who has met the preliminary tests in the premises." Bishop Whitehead tolnts out that Illshop Potter Isn't a good canonist, and that a Bishop is free to witnhold ordination. "I had always 'supposed," says BIshoD Whitehead, 'that thore was no power, civil or ecclesiastical, which could compel a Bishop to "lay hands' on any person whom, for nuy reason, he judged unworthy, notwithstanding testimonials. Of course, there might be suits for libel, and possibly tines or damages to be paid, but no authority, I thought, could say: You must ordain a man, whether you deem it best for the Churoh or not.' "Ho I have consulted the canons, and am re lieved to find that my Impression was correct. There U absolutely no such word us 'snail' used with reference to the ordination of n priest: and with reforenco to the ordination of n deacon, the Bishops discretion, notwith standing testimonials, is distinctly recognised by the words (Title 1.. Canon 7. Section 10): "lhore being no known objection to tho ordi nation ot the caudidate. on grounds physical. Intellectual or moral, the Blshoo shnll.' Ao. J am at a loss to understand where my brother ot Now York finds thelcanonlcal.'compulslon to which ho refers. It Is unfortunate Ito use It us nn argument If there Is any doubt ns to its existence. For my part. 1 am well pleased to find chat the Bishoo. In tho most solemn net of his office, is loft absolutoly free In foro con sclenthe. to withhold ordination, subject, no doubt, to civil penalty, If he nuts unjustly, but not compelled bv the Church'x law to do that which bin judgment condemns." Since Bishop Potter wrote his letter regard ing the powers and duties of his office tho canons have been studied to learn If tho Bishop had anv ground to stand on, The general opinion hail been thnt a Bishop could with hold xa ordination If ho saw lit. although ll tho canonical requirements had beenmst. The opinion doesn't boem to hnve been changed. "Bishop Potter Is wrong," said Dean Hoff man ot the Oeneinl Theological Seminary last night. "A Bishop may ted a candidate thnt he will not ordain hlui. and that Is nil there is ot It The Bishop doesn't even have to tell why he withholds the ordination. 'I here Is nothing in the canons to show ihnt thore was ever any Intention to restriotthe Bishop's power to refuse oralnntlon. The Standing Committee may refuse to recommend a cn dlda'e. and it must tell the Illshop the reason for Its refusal, but the lll-liop may withhold ordination and keep his reasons to himself." The llev. Dr. Thomas lllchey holds the sam opinion. The Blshoo. he savs, is responsible for the admission of n deacon to tho priest hood, and no one can bo mado a priest against the Bishop's wishes JJOIF OTER MISIflOXARY MOXRT. A Lively Discussion In the A. M. R. Con ference Yesterday Mernlng. The New Yoik Conference of the V M. E. Church in session at Bethel Churoh on West Twenty-fifth street considered yesterday the educatlonnl work of the Church. The morn ing session was enlivened by a warm and al most a heated discussion on the apportion ment ot the missionary money collected by the churches on Faster Sunday. The Com mittee on the State of the Church advised that the General Conference bo memorialized to use 40 per cent, of the collections for home missions, to bo anproprlatcd directly bv the conference and to be taken out of the hands of the missionary secretary, Dr. Parks. The Itev. Dr. Parks, the Bev Dr. Cook of Brook lyn, the Chairman of the committee, and the llev. Dr. W. H. Bryant got Into such a simul taneous niiil vociferous controversy that Bishop Derrick. Presidlug.thumorously shout o.l for "the marshals and peace oflloers" as he banged the table with his gavel. "Dr. Farks!" he shouted. "Dr. Pnrksl" Dr. Parks thought he had the Moor and began to talk all the louder. "Dr. Parks." coutinued the Bishop. "Your oause Is a just one. Do not weaken It by ov er vehemence " Dr. Parke sat down while the others talked on "Dr. Cook." said the Bishop. "Dr. Cook' You are tho father of the conforeni e. Set a good example to your children 1 Sit down'" Dr. Cook sat down "Dr Bryant." continued the Bishop, "you are the godfnthor of this conference" Dr. Bryant sat down nnd Bishop Grant came In and announced thnt the diicusslon would go over until this morning.

The roads between Cleveland nnd Buffalo were fairly good, but between Buffalo and Albany they were very heavy and no great speed could bo mado. It wns demonstrated thnt the automobile was capable of travelling nt thirty miles an hour, and the tourists on thu heavy loads, moving nt ton miles an hour, were aggravated by tho sight of evele paths along side on which riders vvero travelling twice as f.ist. Tho only complaint of the two in on was that the wind had made their nyesneho. They were not molested for vlolntlnc fcpecd ordi nances. Vilmn thoy saw an officer thoy asked him if they were on the correct road to New ork, nnd whllo he wns recovering trom his astonishment a link of speed was let out and tho phaeton shot by Wlnton will make tho return trip In tho carriage.

As the general Impression around town was that the battle would be for twenty rounds, the announcement In Tue Sun of yestordny that the limit of tho encounter had been Inoreased to twenty-five rounds naturally caused a good deal of comment.

Whllo Hutchinson was the llrst groat English golfer, his prow ess is now In eclipse by reason of Ball's great performance yesterday, who holds more records than nnv amateur on either side of the Tweed. Asldo from his honors as win ner and runner-up in the nmatour champion ships, he was tho llrst amateur to win the opou event, which ho did nt Prestwlck In 1HH0. In which yenr lie was ulso the nmatour champion He Is the only golfer who has won both events. As the record shows. Ball Is equally strong In match as In medal play. He is one of the most fusciuatlng platers to watch, possess ing a beautiful and powerful swing, and driving a long, straight and low ball, which, curiously enough. Is said to have but little run on it Ball Is perhaps seen to best advantage against a strong wind, which seems to havo little effect on Ids strokes, either for carry or direction, and his cleek plat is marvellous in distance nnd accuracy. Ills rtolt Is termed "grand" by every person who las watched him in a match, for no matter how hazardous the chance, he Invariably strives to carry tho bunker on the straight line, quito regardless ot a seemingly impossible distance In Ball's llrst amateur championship victory he won from Lnldlay by 5 up ond 4 to play, and In 1800 he again beat him by 4 up and 3 to play. Ball beat Hilton In 1802 by 3 up and 1 to play, and in 1804 ho forced S. Mure Fergus son to defeat byl up. which, until yesteniny. was his closest match In the ovent. ESTABLISHED I84S.
