Much as has been saw ... .; iamn daring the canvass, no va tUio - o Bounder views have been expressed than those contained in Gov. Cleveland s New ark speech on Monday.

The people are asking, "With a tariff so high in its protective features that none deny the i ceceeeity of its reduction, why is labor un employed and why are wages reduced?" If protection possesses the power to em ploy and to recompense labor, as Blaine asserts, til people say "We have protec tion ia uerabundaiice, and why Is labor noii prosperous ?" The answer is ''that the s iweeewt tariff extortionaUsly taxes industry ; j that p"Wction has been: prostituted to mo nopoly; that capital and labor have been otranged in lauUsrest and sympathy by the growth of monopoly, and free raw materials are dn!ed to our capitalists and workingmen to enable them to com petw iuthe markets of the world. It is theexbsive taxation of the necessarita i of life that is now etriking down the labor of the country, and while the labor is faxed to oppression an annual surplus of hcoiYs of millions is co'.ltctoJ to invite jiublltf profligacy and enable reckless job ber to ply their vocation. The people are overtaxed and impoverished ; frugal ity is enforced io tke verge ol absolute want among the petfple, whjje the ne d tass taxes wrung from tLem ai swwlled to an hundred millions in thJ Treasury to debauch authority and corrupt our , (lolitical system. These facts are not only ITtiteiit to the depressed and overtaxed, labor interests of the country, but they uie so widely and keenly felt that ' no sophistry of oratory cn misliad tUio. The .tariff is an itsue in She contest; a most vital issue indeed; hut it is the protection of .--ffrr-rr-snd the reduction of taxes that our industries demand, and not platitudes about protecting labor that is oppress, d f.o maintain public profligacy and private monopoly." If the present tariff is too low Blaine's part platform tells a lie. If it is high why is Blaine rambling over the country pleading for protection. The roiV are not tools. They see that with tariff to strongly protective that ail rtrty pl&tfoncji demand its reduction, we have idle furnaces, factories an J mills, tens of thousaaeld of laborers un employed, other thousands cednced to esVarratlon wages; yet Blaine fcoeis fa create (ho Impression' that a protettiv tariff will fctsrt all the idle factories, give employment anl high wages to starving ; laborers. Blaine's plal&roi favors the re veal of the protective tariff and he is sarguing that a protective tariff is tive atholicon for all the evils that beset the country. On the other hand Cleveland grants himself on constitutional grounds, that "the right of the government to ex ct tribute from the citizen is limited to Hi aotual necessities, and that every cent taken Iron the iec-ple beyond that re quired for their protection by the govern zmmt is no better than robbery . In this puaiUon Gov. Cleveland is sustained jy ! iepublieaa authority, for Justice Miller nays that taxation shall be exclusively for public purposes that revenue for public purpose is revenue to carry out the func tions of government and the eaeution of 41, a Tha ia arikp ti Anot a tariff eones from a grant to Congress to ''lay and euMect" tax. It has no power to "lay" a Ur with no purpose ut collet-tin it. A tariff U prevent importation has no vorposa to colioat, but is designed to prevent th collection of a revenue. There caa be no tax levy to prevent ta collec tion. Hence a proLil-itive tax is unco He sMtutional. It will b aeen from the above extract that Clyelani condemns the system w hich takes from thai packets of the people millinnsc f dollars not needd or the support of the government." Tbie wery thing the present protective tariff is doing.

In di4oc this there is uo desire any where to cripple any industry or impair Cts ability to prnpr. It is the duty of the law maker to sue that no indu-try is hurt, unless that be unavoidahU in levy ing tax for public purposes.

When the I'ilgrain landed at Plymouth thoy resolved first tuat uie country oe loned lo the saints, and secondly thit they were the saints, imitating inis ex ample the Republicans have resolved-that line government trelonKS to the truly ioyai and that they only are the truly ioyai. It has already been intimated in several n jarteH that an effort will be made to in- suaurate Blaine and Logan U deteatea that the loyal men who saved the life t f ilin nation are determined that the gov ernment Bhall never be turned over to rebels and traitors. Dlaine and Logan are just the men to undertake such a revolu tion. Io his speech at Brooklyn on Thurs day last William M. Evarts said : You mny sy. a some people now say. a party should not always be iu poner; but in this eoun ti y the p uty that it loyal alirnw thall brtn tomr. The party that raised its hand against the intog rily, the honor, the salety of this count y, so lonsr as it maintains iu front and its cohesion, its its liii.rnt. its nans.on, ita purioes, uncbangeU, shall never uave possession oi mis luitiuunu" This thraat is ma le to intimidate the business men of the country. Capital is sensitive. It is thought that thousands of businosa men disposed to vote against Blaine on account of his corrupt record would recoil at the ballot-box if they be lieved the election of Blaine would pre cipitate the couatry in a revolution, such as havi deatroyel Mexico. It was tue fear of injuring the great business inter ests of the country tht induced the Dem ocrats eiiiht yeirs airo to submit to the robbery of the Presidency. But the Dem ocrats will never agiin be frightened into acquiescing in lha most st pendous out- rao of modern times. If Cleveland should be elected to the Presidency he will take his sjat, and no threat or intimi dation will frighten the people into the support of a tattoied candidate for tho Presidency. SOT A all B'aip is r.o niven to prevarication and falsehood that hs cannot tell the truth when he tries. In his Wabash speech he s-id that the South was so impregnably solid in it dislovalty that the Republi cans had never been able to elect a single elector. For five years, from 18t5 to 1870, the taxpaving white people were dis franchise and in 18U8 nearly a solid South voted for Grant. This solidity was all niarvekmsly right and proper. There wai no waving the bloody shirt so long as the t-ou'h cast a solid vote for the election of Grant, Brownlow, Clayton, Bullock, Ames, IfjIJer, Warmoth and Kellogg, but so soon as the South voted solid for Democrats instead of Republicans, it is denounced as disloyal to the government. Blaine sava the South has never been able to elect single Presidential elector. Only eight year j ago Mr. Blaine and all the Re publican party demanded and secured the electoral votes of Louisiana and Florida, and thus seated Mr. Hayes. Tho Democrats protested vehemently against the fraud, insisting that the electoral votes of to h States honestly and fairly belonged to Tildea. But Mr. Blaine and his fellow party leaders would not have it bo. Both States went for IIaye, and they proposed to have the electors or tight. Kight years tterward, in a speech at Wabash, Ind . Mr.'Bla'.no frankly acknowledges that the South his never yet returned a Hepub. lican e ector, which means, of course, that the electoral votes of Louiuiaua and Flor ida, which weri east for Ilnyes, were stolen fr Jin TiJden. The 1'emocratic party has always contended that Hayes secured his seat through fraud, but it never ex pected that one of the parties to the steal would publicly acknowledge the fact. But then Blaine is getting desperate, and no doubt feels justified in going back on his o'.d comrades in crime, inasmuch as they do not seem inclined to put their ehoul tiers to his Presidential wheel and help him oat of the mire aad clay of his own rascality.

You remember that at Chicauo, in 18, Garfield when pretending to nominate Sherman declared that the great deep of public sentiment could not be accurately fathomed amia the whirlpools of feeling which charac terized representative assemblages. I have more than once, in observing the canvass in this State, been impressed with the idea that Garfield spoke the truth when be uttered those words. When Judge Frank T. Reid was nominated seme months since by that machine which Houk manipulated so dexterously for Arthur, the name of the ex-Confeder ate was greeted by the party in conven tion with acclamations, which to those un acquainted with the true inwardness of the nomination would have seemed, an inevitable assurance that the Republican party would rally to a man around him. their chosen leader. The canvass is now nearly completed and it has been fraught with lessons which, interpreted here In the light of most recent developments showed how desperate was the part management which put Keid s name at its masthead. From East- Ten' nessee comes the news, which has evidently had a dispiriting effect npon the Republican party leaders situate at the capital, that the tried and true ex-Union soldiers of that section are not as content as Houk would have theui, and will refuse the bitter morsel of ex-Confederateiem which the "boss" has forced to their very lips. It is well known and has been often commented upon that these Union sol diers, who are the bone and sinew of the Republican party in the State, will to an extent which Houk, Pettibone and the other leaders never imagined, refuse to vote for their nominee. This repugnance is not often openly expressed, but it is evi dent from the lack of enthusiasm and presence of aullennesa with which Reid was greeted in East Tennessee. The Demo crats believe this disaffection to be ex teative; the Republicans concede it exists, but declare it to be inconsiderable. What of Houk's hope that Ksid would be able to draw ex-Confederates from tie Democratic ranks into the Republican fold? Perhaps whether that hope has been disappointed or not could beet be answered by the significant fact that you do not hear Republican leaders at the capital longer express it. You know the Executive Committees of the parties, with that coterie of prophets and mouthpieces which cluster around such organizations, are located here, and the political pulse can bo felt with tolerable accuracy In the tew streets whereon they oracle. You re member when CaoL John W. Morton re signed his seat at the County Democratic Executive Committee Board and declared that he must support the orderly who fought in his battery? Juat at that mo ment, as if by premeditation. Honk and the bosses raised the cry that the Con fed erate ranks were broken and that many pi the ex boys in gray would rally around Reid. When those exuberant prophecies were at their night item maue nis greatest mistake oi the canvass, and he eees it now as plainly as does the reticent Hook. ' He followed up Morton's resignation with that bitter de nunciation of the cause for which he fought whijch has lost him the golden chance offered- " Wrong, fgrever wrong," are the three word which toppled over all the hopes which reached so high in the conventim which raised a Circuit Coutt in Ige to the position of Bate's com ptitor. If he had only allowed Morton's yeast to pursue its leavening process un interrupted he might have gained aoine thing, but, too headstrong to be wise, he denounced instead of reasoned and widened the breach Houk would have c'.osed. There is no doubt but that the Repub lican leaders now realize that Keid made a sad mistake when he attempted to win Confederate Democrats by violent abuse of Confederate principles. The Whig vote was the next citadel to be stormed. The baUle is nearly over. Has it been tawa from the Democratic inner temp'e? It can best ba ueterqfjined by the fact that the Republicans no longer yopiferously claim it. Has there been a single notable i..tlrtarr nf Clav who has through any public channel declared that the mantis of the great commoner had fallen on Vf..;"q iliouldors?

Acr.n. it was Houk's ho oe that Reid oopH keep apart Fussellites ami Bateites and prevent the process of a close amslga. rnation. Has that hope been fulfilled? Let us ce.

The news comes to tha Democratic Exec utive Committee that "sky.blue" is no more, but that "true blue" is the only polor visible in the Democratic sky. I had occasion to visit Columbia wben the Con gressional Convention assembled which recently nominated Ballentine. and while there I determined to satisfy my own mind as to the real feelings of the former followers of Fus-ell.

Let Nashville answer the ques tion, for it wa-t anxious for the com ml. Bion. The ril Mad companies silenced tho voice of petitioner by granting a system cf rebates on freights. Under this arrangement the place which form erly severed most came to en joy special advantages by reason of tbe private discrimination in their fa vor. Self-interest dictated the continu ance of such an arrangement, and there fore the esraUlinbment of such a uniform rate as would follow the creation of a rominitfion was opposed. Jbe railroad awyers began to get in their work and the sophistries they employed were dis seminated throughout the S'ate, and many country journals waged war lor the rail roads. J.he people were being deceived, and the Democrats were fast losing their allegiance to the platform when the rail roads made their fatal mistake. Am onion 'erlearoed itself The Stahlman supple ment was the card t-at gave awav the name. Mistaking a blinded public opinion for settled conviction, the railroad manip ulators had this supplement scattered through the State. It was printed in the mice ot the asnvnie journal, wnicn claimed to be Democratic, and was scat tered broadcast thrrugh the State. The people read it and realized what the Courierrournal said to that last July convention, 'fat the railroad ques tion in Tennessee is simply, Shall he people rule themselves or shall the railroads rale the people?'' While the Democratic party was solving this sober question, Gen. Basil Duke was imported from Kentucky to assist the railroads in their nght in this State, and the Anterican opened its batteries lor these corporations, the rail roads became too aggressive and preeum- nir, and alarmed by their demands those who were disposed to be conciliatory. A reaction set in which has made itself felt from one end of the State to the other; Democracy awoke to the tact that there were traitors in the camp ; the sober sec ond thought came, and the hop9 of Houk, tahiman ana uoiyar was destined to dis appointment. Let it be said to Bate s reoit that ne did not shira the issue, out boldly stood upon the platform given him, and he exercised a potent influence in the work of enlightenment The "Old Man of the Mountain" and his associates took the stump, and they spoke clearly on the i8ue. Happiest results followed. They can be epitomized in what Chairman X'rousdale told uie to-day. It was to the t ffect that, with but very few exceptions. me isemocrauc iegisiauve cauuiusies uau declared for the commission, and that the disaffection was conhued to but few conn ties, and these were fast lessening. To summarize: Bate and Reid have made their last joint speeches. The campaign is virtually over, and only odd stitches are to be caught np. "I think it is pretty well determined that the candidates will eac net a full vote with the chances iu favor of Uate increasing his of 1882. I mean this. The few ex-Confederates Reid will get will be more than overbalanced by the ex- Union soldiers who will not support him. The Fussellites are mainly for Bate. The Executive Committee of Mr. Buchanan. the Greenback candidate, are making no ngtil tor him and the vote that JJeasley got will be scattered. You know it came principally from the Demo.ratic party and in the severance process now going on the Democratic party will naturally get back more votes than the Kepublican. It is a notable fact that the Democratic disaffection against a commission does not atlect tsate, so he has nothing to lose bv mat, me negro vote is, as usual, the rightful property of the Republicans. VV ith, then, gains from former Fusselites and Greenbsckers, it is safe to say that Bate's 27,000 majority of 1882 over Hawk ins will swell this year to over 30,000. So 'bink the representative Democrats and party leiders here. All indications point to the accuracy of their opinions. Of course, these opinions are based on the supposition 'hat the increased vote which follows a Presidential election will be equally beneficial to both parties. AKMM.LK. THE LATE WIL Bi ll F. STOREY.

As a boy he prt-ured the man; reserved, thoughtful, little given to play with other children, self-contained. self-reliant. When ten vears old bis pa rents removed to Middleburg, Vt, and two years later, he entered a newspaper office to learn thd printing trade, the paper be ing the Middleburg Free Preu. His knorl- euge oi men and matters was gleaned from actual contact with them and from such reading as he could do in his leisure moments, his regular schooling being lim ited to three mouths at the village acade my in Midd'.eton and his attendance at school prior t o the commencement of learn ing his trade. At the age of fifteen he is remembered as an extremely handsome youth and very indnstrious. At ta enty qne years of age he began life on his own account, going into the world with $27 in his pocket, tie went to ftew lorkfJuy, and was a compositor on theVuumaf of Lommerce lor eighteen months, in the spring of 1838 he went to South Bend, Ind., where he had a sister living.

The great debate was resumed yesterday motn ing and pursued through the entire day. The Rev. Mr. Martin held the floor for two hours, and in a speech of wonderful ability defended Dr. Woodrow's teaching from the chargs of injurious and heretical tendencies. The Rev. Mr. McKay de fended the Board of Directors and ex pounded the constitution given to the seminary by the synods empowering the board to administer all its affairs, and so it continued hour after hour with equal ability and courtesy. At night the floor was given to Dr. Woodrow without limits' tion. The large church was packed to its utmost capacity to hear the professor de fend himself. Hour after hour, with in finite vivacity, wit and pathos, the defense continued. It was impossible to know which . rhost to admire, the persistesjjV Interest of the audience or the pluck and power of the speaker.

The subject was resumed at 9:30 o'clock this morning. Confine ton of llse Aecond Bay 'a Debate, IsrsxiALCoiBxapoitDisci or thi arrsab.l GKW.svixLX,October 25. After Dr. Adger had concluded his speech, the Rev. Dr. Mack, secretary ot the Uoa-d ol Directors, took the floor. Recognized as the leader of the opposition to Dr. Woodrow, his speech was regarded with the deepest in terest. There was a general rustling aver the crowded house when he slowly rose to take the floor, and every face settled into eager expectation. The discussion of this question, said Dr. Mack, was a vital oue lor the seminary. I ls issue would decide whether the institution should die and be buried, or whether it would con tinue to stand a faithful witness to the faith of God. It would decide whether the Southern Presbyterian Charch would stand beautiful, strong and pure as in the bygone days, or whether she would prove a degenerate daughter ot her noble mother. Wnat was the position ot the minon;y 7 It did not charge luudeuty against Dr. Woodrow. and the assertion that it did was unworthy of men seeking the truth v hen a man believed m the inspiration ot God s word he was not an infidel whether he was Arminian, Unitarian or Presbyte- j rian. The Perkins professor was not charged with heresy; his resignation was pot asked for. I he minority had carefully excluded everything personal from the controversy, and sought to settle it on principles, the rerluns professor sai)k irto ntter iosignificaoce in comparison with the great question at stake, and eyen the life or deata of the seminary was a small thing. The character of the South ern Church was on trial before the world'. That was why the minority had carefully avoided personalities and sought to place the issue squarely be lore the board. The hypothesis of evolution was that God had created one or a few forma, and from tbera evolved all the various organ ized beings on the earth. By the natural law of evolution forms more compact and various were gradually evolved, and were not created by any supernatural act. One application of this principle was that Adam was finally evolved from a brute. Dr. Mack quoted from Dr. Woodrow's address, and said its teaching was that Adam was the son of a male and female brute and was born a baby brute. It belonged to men of science to awr tain facts, base a theory on them ty present them for the consideration ot log ical minds. But could any man say' that this hypothesis was true,' and conic) it be taught to the children of the Church as truth ? If they could not say whether a thing was quinine or arsenic should they administer it in their households? If the synod had no power over this professor ship if should never have been created, for none oia ten wnetner rrutn or error was 11 waB proposed to cast that crown down to be trampled under the eet of C;car or science. If this theory dealt with the Bible, had synod no right as ministers and the Church court to deal with it? What was a minister but au authorized interpreter of God's word, whst were the Charch courts but tbe same? Dr. Adger had declared that the seminary was the place to teach improved hypotheses. Tbe speaker's invoresaion was that th.e semj. nary was the place to teicu youug tuen to preach the word and say 'fwe believp and, therefore we taoh." Prof. Agassi had pronounced the doc trine of evolution a scientific blunder, un true in facts, unscientific in teachings and ruinnut in tendency. The evolution of. Dr. Woodrow was 'the evolution of Darwin modified Darwin says both tho body and spirit of men were evolved; Dr. Woodrow in his explanation of his theory explicitly excludes mention of the power by wbici the thing was done. Seven points of similarity showed that the doc trine of Darwin and that of Dr. Woodrow were alike. . The theory oontradictec the jnterrireta-tion-given -by the Church io several passage of Scripture. The Church inter preted the word "(Just'' in the Bible literally, Every man's interpretation of the Bible constituted his uible.

' ' The teaching of future ministers tbaf Adam was evolved and he created was contrary to the confession of faith and the largep catechism, The oonfaairn s-t forth tha after God had created all other creatures He created man, male and fe male, with immortal and reasonable souls. Tho catechism taught that God created roan, male and female; that he created man from the dust and woman from his rib, and gave them living, reasonable and immortal souls. The interpretation of the s ory of creation by tbe Church was that C,od by a suj.etnauarai. act cieated the bod and a -tl of Adam and : Eve. He created man entire, bedy and soul. : This corifession of faith m the bond of qnion in the Church.' (t could only be interpreted m a hi&tprieaj sepae. Could synod say that an interpretation different from the historical interpretation could be taught without dissolving the bond of union ? Dr. Mock said no man could have been given the Perkins professorship without accepting the confession of faith. If Dr. Woodrow excepted to the parts of that confession treating of the creation he should ho said sq. He cert&iui had not the rrght to 'teach 'fijetrines oontrar dieting the conliEsion.' ..... .

Should the Scriptures be a nose of wax to oe oeut hJ Ihi suppositions of scientists ? Dr. Mack closed with the warning that tbe action of the seminary's best friends in other eitatea indicated that they ioked on this new doctiioe as a breach of faith and a Iretrayal of their confidence, and that if this evil was not rooted out the Church wo ild be divided and the leminary irre trievably injured. When l'rot. Hemphill, of the Columbia Seminary, ascended the platform it was evident that he would have the fixed at tention of the house. Tall, well-formed, with clear cut features and pleasing ex pression cf countenance, already marked with lines of thought and pale with much study, the young scholar was the center of all o servation while in tones clear and manly he spoke as follows: I feel, Mr. moderator and brethren, the delicacy of my relations on the one band is aiua, oiras alter tneir kind, and every creei.inrt Udug aitfii iU Un4- 1'anl sid there was oue fieh of birds and anothernf to the Board of Directors, and on the other to my colleagues. These considera tions have kept me out ol the diBcuBston in the newspapers. But when the time came for me to utter my mind in the Sresbytery, I did it; and I now propose to o bo as a member of this synod. This Question is ruaU In this respect I agree with the brethren on the other side. The principles at stake are those of truth. righteousness ana justice, i propose io show that if this body adopt the minority report, enjoining silence upon Prof. Wood row, it will traverse each and every erne of these grand principles. What is the question oeiore us r i reaa the minority report. . The first resolution in it affirms that there is no question of "heresy" in the teachings of the Perkins chair before the synod, and yet this whole discussion proceeds npon the assumption that there is hereey. Whit U heretii t Ac- cording to our standards heresy is some, or thing in conflict with the word of God as interpreted in our confession and cate chisms. If a presbyter holds and teaches what contradicts these standards, be holds and teaches heresy. That is the only con ception ot hereey which can properly come before the body. And yet Dr. Woodrow's teaching has been denounced as neresy, enormous and hurtful heresy. Our op ponents who have charged heresy, or think it. will stultify themselva if they vote for that resolution, which affirms that there is no question in regard to heresy in the Perkins chair. f Reads the second resolution, which is: That the synod is called upon to decide not upon the Question whether the said View OI ur. vy oourow couiruuicia tue . - r .it 1 . 1- .1 Bible in its highest and absolute sense. I said Prof. Hemphill, do not understand what that phrase means "but npon the question whether they contradict interpre- . . . i i : v. i .1. r .v, ... : . tauons Ol tue diuio uy ma iuyumu Church in the United States." The oueation is not. say the minority, whether these tendings contradict the in terpretations of Scripture found in our standards, and vet there is no heresy un less the confession oe contradicted, out interpretations of the Bible found else where are to settle the matter, uur oppo nents must n ake these twothings hang together. The Presbyterian Charch has no interpretations except those in her standards. I challenge the proof of any nthnr. Some of vou remember what one of the speakers (Dr. Adger) mentioned last night, that in the Oid School Assem- h v erliilM wa lormeu pan oi ii. ir. av. Breckinridge, of all considered a high type of Presbyterian, nrged the appoint ment of a committee to prepare a church commentary.

A l- 1-... 1 k- 1.. ,,.1,... -..I... .'a the Church to put forth interpretations of Scripture other than tho.se in her con fession. But the advocates ol the minor ity renort try to make uh believe that there are somewhere else interpretations of the Bible, accepted by the Church, other than those in her standards, no logic can jus tifv that patched un oaoer. I like the hist speaker (Dr. Junkin) who wished to go beyond the minority report. I honor that position, because it is con' sistent with logic. But to say that there is no heresy, and yet to treat a man as if guilty of heresy is wholly unjustifiable. I confess great sympathy f r the opposition They havhuug out a flag of aisirtss by offering that pa er. "In tones of thunder'' they have proclaimed that heresy is taught in the semiuary and indorsed by the board. It is a call to the Cnurch to come to the rescue. I expected them to discuss the real lesue, but instead a paper is pre sented to caWh every breeze ot opposition, a wed as the sweeping tornado of heresy. 1 wish they would stand by their last speaker (Dr. Junkin). We ho.d them to the point. 1 he paper -does not claim that Dr Woodrow contradicts the Bible, but cer tain interpretations ot it. N jt those inter pretations in the confession which consti tute the system of doctrine to wuich we are all pledged, but outtdde the confession Bomewhere or other, we are not told where. inis whole suair is of the nature ol a trial. Both the Perkins profesxor and the board are on trial the one for teaching heresy, the other for indorsing it. I ak them lo specify the articles ti' the confes sion which have been violated, mat mi nority report is a paper un worthy to be pre-ente4 to this body affirming that the indorsement of Dr. Woodrow s several principles are "injudicious" and "inexpe dient," and yet assigning no reason for the assertion, not a running that it was wrong, but "inexpedient, thus evading tbe ques tion whether the teachings were right or irronj. Heads minority report to show tbe evasion ot the rest issue j Their expression "inculcate" evolu tion, in the fourth resolution, is a phrase apt to mislead if the lacguage be Uken in its ordinary seiisa. Evolution is not de fended or "inculcated" in the sense whieh their words would imply. What are the teachings of Prof. Woodrow? What the object and scope of his chair? Listen to a brief exposition of this point. Thc ob' j'ect of this chair is to teach the connection subsisting between natural science and revelation. This chair has a more definite object than any other in the institution. Natural science has been perverted by in fidels and atbeibls to overturn' tbe Chris tian fi h. I do not use the phrase "infi dji science" or "inlidel scientist." There is no such thing as infidel science. What is the rotation between geography and the Bible? Dots the Bible teach any thing in contradiction with the acta embodied in geography ? So with zoology, botany, geology, etc. ' It is to point out the relation of these sciences to the Bib! only this and nothing more. The minori ty report covers more ground than the chair or tfcan the professor does. He does not attempt to maintain as essential y true anything outside tli9 i t. He oniy asks tb.- p2il to coutidr geoiog.-, geogra phy, or evolution, as they aie beid by rjjen, indicate errop; and show; their nl iion to bcr.ptura. ,' What is eyolution? What the argu ments in its favor? What those against it? What the opposition wish is to de prive htm of the poor little privilege of giving his own private opiuion as to these things. He is not to be permitted to sxy, I believe geography to be a body of truth, or geology, or botany, or s oology. He now says, I believe geography as taught by intelligent men ia tiue so geology, so botany ; but he does not require men to receive these v as matters oi faith or duty. I was struck, while a student, witii his painful faithfulness in this respect, that he persisted iu teaching the connection" of natural science with tte Biu'.e. The,- talk about his "new departure." ' Did he say when entering that seminary that he did not believe in evolution ? Or has a man no right to make progress af'er becoming a professor in a theological seminary? i Are you going to hold him to the view . that at his entrance he knows everything that he ever will know? A pitilul com pany of professors " tVe know all !" Ac eording to the ideas of the Kentucky tnod, not only knoying what is"; hut also WhatjItfifW They look into the future, and know what they will jiX believe! Does lr. Woodrow teach the doctrines of science in the same souse and for the same purpose as Dr. Girardeau teaches the atonement? or as Dr. Boggs teaches the facts of Biblical history? or the professor of Biblical literature teaches the inspira tion of the Bible? It ia a mis eading ex pression as used in the minority report. The very purpose oi the Perkins chair for bids such teaching. Not ec'ence for its own sake, but science in its ""or nation', with thp Cililv is what Drr Woodrow teaches. " It' is a play on words "teach ing," "teaching," "teaching evolution," as they are continually harping on the ex pression. I believe as a tact that there 1? not one of his pupiis who believes in evo lution, and there is not likely ever to be one, so far as the tea hings of Dr. Wood'' yaw are concerned, I come now to the very core of this dis cussion and ask your fixed attention. What is a thwlogictl seminary ? Where is the definition of it in your standards? It is not there. This is the most complete breakdown in logic that I ever savr, X wish to show the res;;' is w their position: "The seminary kniiot Ica.h what the Church cannot teach." "What is the Charch to' teach 1 Spiritual'' tputh only Ihqt and ifOtuing more l'te seminary cannot, therefore, teaiuhln any way rueta p,hysica,phurc.h history. Hebrew and Greek, grammar, because t!;e Cbnrcit utnnot do it I Stand by our arguiueut. The semi nary is not even recognized in our stand ards. How carp it then be the Church's organ for teaching what he is responsible for? Show by tae standards whs the seminary must say. Yon ' Ia - "not do it. o v uurcn. therefore, responsible for every utterance of each professor ? What ia a seminary ? Th?re i; no command to crttueoue. 2he "Church in the United States" has no such creature, and cannot, then, be responsible for its teachings. Who then is responsible? The four "Associated Synods" that created it. They might have adopted different measure, bad they so p'eased. For fear one might teach heresy ttiev might have Oidained that students memo t'.zi and recite Scripture "without note or comment," or else the language from Htandards, forbidding the professor to make any remarks lest he teach heresy. What were the methods adopted ? The constitution answers. It is said Dr. Wood row is not on tiiil. I emphasize the fact that he is on trial, yet without safeguards or the privileges provided by this consti t a tion (of tbe Columbia Seminary). He read an article showing that the' synods have entered into agreement with eaeh other to govern by and through the Board of Directors. The synods do not control immediately, but mediately, through the board. This constitution "is not a set of rules, so much as a bU of rights. The synod has its rights, the board theirs; Dr. Woodrow his. For example: Who elects a professor? Not the synod, but the board. After the election by the board the synod can approve or disapprove. The veto belongs to the synod. But if the synod lor any causa does not speaa, tne election becomes - valid without any act on its part. Has the professor no rights ? Is ha to be stopped by resolu tions of the synod ? The board has the right to remove a professor when in their judgment he is found nn aithful or in competent. (See article 11, page 5.) The board may mupena htm until fully "tried" and report their action to the synods. Prof. Woodrow has rwhts; sacred rights. May God grunt that there will be Presby terians found still who will give a man his rights. The only method for preced ing legally in the board was for the ob- lectors to table charges of "unfaithfulness' "incompetency. Then there would have been a fair trial with full discussion, and the synod would have had the review of a ease. The board has the right to try and remove a professor, and that excludes the right of the synod to do so. The synod cannot do what by the constitution fs expreesedly assigned to another body. T ' .- . . . J - I . n- I dxprtuiui until en Maiuw mieniu. inis is the universally recognized rule of law. Are you going to raise a hurrah and try to sweep a man out of his place by clamor? ls that .Fresbytenanism T is it j ustice r No I A man is not condemned tilt tried. So speaks this . constitution. Synod, bv adopting the minority report, would travel far out of the path which is denned in the law. The supposed right of synod to say to a professor, "Your views do not contra dict the Bible as interpreted in these stan dards, but they do not suit us," is the same as saying, "Orthodoxy is my doxy, and hetorodoxy ls your doxy. I .Laugh ter. The only way to stop a professor is to remove him from his othce, either lor nuhuthfulness or "incompetency These are the legal limits. He here read the pledge or vow given by each profefcsor when inaugurated, which binds him not to contradict the doctrines of the stan dards of the Church. The giving of this limit is the exclusion ot au other testa. His teaching is limited only by that form ula. I challenge the right of synod to re verse the action of the board and prohibit his iea-hing unlets it be tested by that provision of the law. It is asked : "Do not these synods control the semi nary?" Does not the constitution of the United States give tome control in and over the States to the Federal govern ment T And is not onr bitter;compiaint just this that the majority have over ridden these limits, and then said, "We have the power to work our pleasure?' So yon of the synod can do it by trampling under your teet this constitution, just as men suspended and disregarded the writ of habeas corpu$ for as, by force of num bers. You can but I do not believe you wiU do such injustice. To the law we must go. It is said that Dr. Woodrow's teachings contradict interpretations ot the Bib e bv the Preabvterian Church in the United States. Granted that now there are some interpretations not given in our standards, is he required to teach in ac cordance with all such floating interpreta tions T Then he cannot teach anything contrary to anything in tnia "received in terpretation" without first having the ap proval cf the board. I trust the synod will excuse a few person al allusion. 1 her i in a question in charch polity as to the exact relations of Church and State. Being brought up in our con- farence lately, we, the ptof stors, were found to differ among ourselves. What are the "accepted interpretations?" I do not know. The view of the professor of Church history and polity, w in which sgro!, would ce rottd down in this synod, 1 suppose, ana the view oi tne protecsor of theology, from which I dissent, would he approved, I imagine, by most of you. As to the will, the views i f the professor of tteology are contrary to these , of Ed wards, which are genera ly accepted by the ministry. Thouiwell's latest opinions weie also opposed to Ed Tarda, but the professor, who came in between. Dr. Tnoinwell and Dr. Girardeau wap, I be heye, withfvl wards. Now, t-hali synod stop ti esc- brethren from teaching what is opposed to tae EJwardeau or ,-received" view?' TAitre are differences among us as to the-ilejcoin land ions. Of ttie:e we I have at ) k:3 views in tne faculty. Which oi lSAhi e ''accepted iuterpre tat ion?" As to the ca'l to the ministry, we have different opinions when that comes up for discussiou. Each professor gives his own view and leaves the student to select between them. This synod must not evade the ques tion : Is a prclesscr bound by the xptu tima rf.ba principle, or is he forbiddeu to vary from received interpretation .' If we had tldi case before us as it oug t to be, could we say that Dr. Woodrow has violated his vow ?, Then, under a deep cense of our own responsibility, we should make our answer to this solemn question. Then the question as to "six natural days" and eyolution Would be lure in such shape 'as to be 1 legally exim ned. But now we have only "obtuscation." These principles should be considered. Did the board proceed aright ia the case '2 Ought not .the charges ' to 'bgY- tt-on taU'ed 'i We could, by tfa - deliver ance, express an opinion and direct, the boaid to consider the matter not by that iu tluki opinion, bat by Presbyterian; law. But we can't shq'i the raomh of a pro; lessor in the manner suggested by the minority report. I critic'se the whole proceedings. It has been "Hsuh ! Iam afraid of evolution. I would not say it contradicts the Bible, but si'ence! silence I" "Keep silence. Q earth : said the last speaxer, u rr u-ih would keep Jiletca y tho-"Bynodl ver T.Z.A. lint the earth will no keep Bilence. Look at the positpn in Licb, you El ace ycu r.ro(cssor. These young men ear about this terrible evolution. They occasionally see a took or magazine. They come to the seminary in great doubt, having heard of evolution in college. Here the speaker read from a letter from a professor in a Presbyterian university, saying that many s ientists considered evolution better established than any .sci entific doctrine except gravitation. " What is his name?" cried a voice from the synod "James Louis Howe, Pn. D.. F. C. S.," was the reply, "educated abroad and now professor in the Central Univer sity at Richmond, Ky." He deprecites such treatment of Christian mea f or be lieving what nearly all scientists hold to be true. This eynod, sitting as C scion tiiic ossoc'ation, Undertakes in the far s wee prof its knowledge to say "though every scientific mau believes ir, yet we say it is au 'unverified hypothesis.' " "Hear, 0 earth." But sbe will tioi keep silence. Putting aside Dr. Woodrow and his rights, let us inquire what are God't rights ia the matter. There was a time when a majority of Uie Christian world, as great is both of tbe Synods of Kentucky and Nashville, believed that everything ,as taqe in sio, natural days of twuaty-four hours each. ''The geologi cal hypothesis is not based on facts," they said. But there fere facts, and many of them, too. Geologists "rooted down" and found out that all was not made in six or dinary days If the synod of Souta Caro lina had had such a case a-i this before us. they would perhaps have been tempted to shut their mouths. That was an "accept ed interpretation." Perhaps the members of the Church to-day a-oaily hold to thp "accepted interpretation" o tiiat uayvand on the rr;ple or the minority should svreep many of the u inistry out of exist ence lor not believing it. "Away with the geologist ! Let him go inc '.kr.t bot tomless sbyez that he os been too ing at," was then' the-cryj Now the Church has to cry in the presence of this imertir pent science, "Prccqril' Than consider the "delugo coBtrqversy." The "accept, ed interpretation" required universal deluge. There was no use in alleging difficulties. There was no apparent need' of one since the only purpose wac to de stroy sinful mas. But the language, the Imignan. demanded universal1-, Rscall the vy To'vir the vowel poiut in Hebrew.' There was a dreadful controversy over their inspiration.

' ' DEADLY FIRE DAMP. Fourteen Men Killed aad Several la. jnred by an Explosion la Fena sylvaala Coal Mine. Most of the Victims Married Hen with Families Heartrending Scenes Abeut the Month of the Pit When the Disfigured Remains were Brought te the Snr lace Distressing Details. PirrsBCBG, October 28. A brief dispatch from Uniontown last night announced a serious mine disaster at that place. Later advices sav: An explosion of fire-damp, with results probably as fatal as attended the terrible disaster at West Leisenring last January, wben nineteen lives were lost, occurred at the mines of the Yonngstown Coke Company, f our miles from here, be tween 4 and 5 o'clock last evening. The explosion took place in the sixth right- hand flat, where about twenty-five men were at work. The fire boss made his rounds as usual in the morning and dis covered no signs of gas. Tbe day force went to work, and at 4 o'clock in the after nocn were relieved by the night turn. Twenty minutes later, and just after the pit boss, Jas. Cole, and Superintendent Reis had come up from the mine and gone to the office, an explosion occurred, which shattered tbe windows for a mile around. Five minutes later there was a second re port, and immediately after 1LAMKS BURST FORTH from tha nromtnirft- lilnp.kino' nn tfin avenues of the entrance. News of the ! ilLa.td. a ....1 nniiittir and f ,-iu rt . 1 a .ml : rrrr::. r, i r-rh iz:fT mY - gathered around the mouth of the mine, ' but Uie fierce flames prevented any at tempt at rescue. After an hour's work. however, the flames wete subdued suffi ciently to allow dencent by way of tbe air shaft. At this writing volunteers have only been able to reach a part of the mine owing to the after-damp, and it is feared that the entire roof of the sixth fl at has fallen in. If this is the case none of the miners at work theie can be saved. The men in the other parts of the mine, who escaped after the explosion occurred, made an attempt to reecue their com panions, but were unable to reach them. TUB KILLED AND INJUBkD thus far discovered are Joseph Zebley, ni'ht pumper, single, aged twenty-two, killed ; Jack Lopes, repairer, sinle, aged thirty, killed; Jack Cole and his son David Cole, seriously and it is thought fatally injured. Chauncey Wilson, slightly in jured; Washington Kebber has just been rescued. He is not much Mirt, as he had the presence of mind to lie down in a pool of water and avoid inhaling tbe gas. This makes stx that have been taken out, two dead and four injured, Jacob Cole and son probably fatally. Every effort is being made to rescue the others, but up to a lata hour to-night all in vain. There is scarce ly a chance for any of them to be taken out alive, a-t it is thought all have perished from the deadly after-damp before thie. The air in the vicinity of the mine was ril.l.KD WITH THI CBIBS of the wives and children of the impris oned men thers a e lenty of willing hands and hearts who are- ready to rink their lives in trying to rescue them, but it is impossible to get at them now, aud not is impossinie xo get at tuern now aud not before morning w ill the terrible tale be known. It is not known how tbe explo sion occurred. It wa9 just such a day as that after the West Leisenring disaster. The atmosphere was heavy and murky, which is rezard-d as favorable for the ac cumulation of fire-damp in mines. Never-' Iheiesa, no gia has been discovered in the mine for more than a month.

A great many people from this place and Connellsville are at thelUtle village which has grown np around the mine, and altogether the scene is one of sorrow, deeply parvaded by a feneral feeling of profound twines.

It was a sad spec tacle, and moved to tears many hundreds who had been drawn to tUe' plaoe by the news of the disaster. It cannot he stated now whether the explosion was due to tbe carelessness of the company or not, Tbe miners allege that it was, but on the heels of a calamity like this the first im pulse usually is to attribute it to tbe com pany. It is well known, however, that the Yonngstown Company has always been very careful, and a knowledge, ttiat their mine was a dangeraqs cao and pre disposed to the gsae.-aiion of nre-damp made them more careful than ever. The mine was inspected every morning, and whenever the presence of fire-damp was detected it was an invariable order deny the men admission to it t;ntU tne gas had been expelled. This was the rule, and, tbe ctlicia'a say it was rigidly enforced); but it is claimed by the miners that the company discharged a. competent ftre bos about two months ago, and has since em ployed in that capacity one who was not competent to determine whether he mine was safe or not EX-SECRETARY HUWIi McCCLLOCH rat at tho Hue of tbe Treasury De nartsnent ay ProaM-ant Arthnr. 1 Wasbinoton, October 23.

THE SCOTT LIQUoFlaW Declared fneonaUtnttonal by the nrerao Conrt ar Otilo. Columbus, October 28. The Supreme Court, three judges affirming and two dis senting, to-day declared the Scott liquor tax law unconstitutional. The decbtions on several pending cases were all to this effect. The decision, stripped of its verbiage, declares the entire law uncon atitntional. and will not only do away with the collection nf the tax this year, only a small portion of which has been paid, but will make it necessary for all corporations to oav back the amount which was cot lected under the law last year, together with interest It will bankrupt nearly all the cities in the State, as levies for tbe vear were made on the supposition that the law was constitutional, and would bring into the treasury of counties and cities a stipulated amount of money. In Columbus, for example, between $45,000 and $-30,000 was realized from the tax last ! year, and none of the amount has been - . . .. . nti ! . 1 said this year. The consequence is, the departments are behind in the payment oi salaries two auu vuron uiuuiuo. vmoi cities in tbe State are similarly situated. The great question with the municipal and county authorities is how they will secure immediate relief from the embarrassing situation, the Legislature not being in ses sion to grant authority.

The p-. peal was from the Court of Clajus.
