SOME RECOMMENDATIONS MADE Committee Asked For to Perform the Actual Work of Kevi»lon. Philadelphia, May IS.—Contrary to ex pectation, the Presbyterian general as sembly did not discuss the report of the committee on revision which was to-day presented to the commissioners. A ma jority report was also laid before the assembly end it is probable that the ques tion will not come up for consideration tmtil next Thursday. It will be at least delayed until subjects of more personal interest are out of the way. To-day's session was called to order at 9:30 o'clock by Moderator Minton, and after the usual devotional exercises, re ports of special committees were pre sented. Appended to the report of the twentieth century fund committee were a number of resolutions which the assembly was asked to adopt. They were as fol lows: That the general assembly calls upon every church in the denomination still burdened ■with indebtedness and thus hindered from giving its full share to missions and tenevol ence, to take steps under the inspiration of this movement to remove this indebtedness within the next two years. That the general assembly earnestly re quest congregations and individual governor throughout the rnurch to prayerfully con sider the enlarged needs and larger oppor tunities ct the boards of the theological seminaries, of the academic, collegiate and charitable institutions of the church and speedily to provide for those greater needs as the Lord may enable them to do. That the general assembly most earnestly calls upoj the synods and the presbyteries to continue to prosecute this work during the ensuing year by organized effort and the hearty co-operation with the general com mittee. That in view of the longer time recessary to gather in the full results of this twentieth century movement, the assembly a commit tee be continued for another year to report Xr, the general assembly in 1902. Revision of the (.'reed. The assembly fixed next Thursday at 10 a. m. for the hearing and consideration of the report of the special committee on the revision of the confession of faith. Thurs day and Friday have been set aside for the discussion of revision, as it is con sidered that the debate will consume at least two days. The report contains the following: After the patient consideration given to this | Important subject, thus recorded, and after a protracted, but harmonious, discussion of j the subject in all its bearings and in its possible issues. It w?.s determined to submi: to the general assembly to convene in Phila delphia. May 16, 190 L the following find ings and recommendations, viz: First—That the • returns indicate that the church desires some change in its creedal statement. Second—That the returns indicate that no change Is desired which would in any way Impair the integrity of the system of doctrine contained in the confession of faith. Third —These returns indicate that it is the mind of the church that the confession shall be interpreted throughout in harmony with the teaching of scripture that Rod is not willing that any one shouH perish, nor is the decree of God. but the wickedness of their own hearts which shuts some men out from the salvation freely and lovingly offered in Jesus Christ to all sinners. Fourth—These returns indicat? that a ! plurality of the presbyteries desire that changes shouH be made by some new state ment of present doctrines. Fifth—The returns also indicate a desire on the part of many presbyteries for some re vision of the present confession, especially in chapter 3; chapter JO, section 3: chapter 16, section 7: chapter 22, section 3; chapter 25, eection 6: with additional statements con cerning the love of God for all men, missions and the Holy Spirit. A.—ln view of these facts we recommend that a committee, as provided for by the form of government, chapter xxii., section 3, be appointed by this assembly. B —We recommend that this committee be Instructed to prepare a brief 'summary of the reformed faith bearing the same rela tion to the confession which the shorter cate chism bears to the larger catechism, and formed on the general model of. the concensus creed prepared for the assembly of 1892, or the "articles of faith" of the Presbyterian church of England, both of which documents are appended to the committee's report and submitted to the assembly, to be referred to the committee that may be appointed. This summery is not to be a substitute for the confession, and is. not to affect the terms of subscription, but "to vindicate" and clear the doctrines of the church from all false aspersions end misconceptions," to give a better understanding of what is most surely believed among us, and is in no sense to im pair, but rather to manifest and maintain the Integrity of the reformed faith. C—We further recommend that this com mittee be instructed to prepare amendments of chapter iii., chapter x, section 3; chapter fcvi., section 7; chapter xxii., section 2, and chapter xxv., section 6, of our confession of faith, either by modifications of the text or by declaratory statement, so as more clearly to express the mind of the church with addi tional statements concerning the love of God for all men, missions and the holy spirit. It being understood that the revision shall in no way impair the integrity of the system of doctrine set forth in our confession and taught in the hqly scripture. Some Dissidents. The members of the committee appointed by the last assembly unanimously agreed to all the findings and recommendations of this report, with the exception that Rev. Dr. Wil liam McKibbon and E. W. C. Humphrey could not approve of the recommendation to the assembly, to instruct the committee that plight be appointed to prepare a summary of the reformed faith to be submitted to the )resbyterles, in connection with such other Amendments and statements as might be pre pared. These members gave notice that they Kould submit to the assembly a report em bodying the findings and recommendations of this report, omitting the recommendation to Instruct a committee that might be ap pointed to prepare such a summary of the Teformed faith. In conclusion we feel Justified in the jtatement, and we think it fitting to state, lhat our lamented member, General Benjamin Harrison, gave clear expression to views before the committee which assure us that he would have joined us in the findings and recommendations of this report. Loyal to cur standards, believing that a constitutional majority of our beloved church favors some action, and that our recom mendations, if executed, would preserve in tact our system of doctrine and promote the peace and prosperity of the church, we humbly and reverently submit the results of our inquiries and deliberations to this ven erable assembly. Charles A. Dickie, Herrick Johnson, Sam- Continued on Second Page, MRS. MCKINLEY OUT OF DANGER • This Opinion Is Expressed by- Secretary Hitchcock. QUIET,EVENTLESS NIGHT Ist°rical s Ocie ''" - Mrs. McKinley's v. } Z tinues. " *"*-»/ BATTLESHIP OHIO IS LAUNCHED President McKinley la Able, After All, to Witness the Fine Ceremony. San Pranclsco, May 18. —Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock stated this morning that he now considered Mrs. McKinley out of danger.. News that Mrs. McKinley had decidedly improved came this morning after a quiet and uneventful night. The weather was pleasant during the night. The sun came up in a clear sky, promising perfect weather for the ceremony of launching the battleship Ohio. When it was an nounced this morning that President Mc- Kinley would attend the launching of the Ohio, and the mounted guard was seen to draw up in front of the house prepara tory to his departure to the Union Iron Works, there was a feeling of great re lief. President McKinley's actions seemed to give more assurances of his wife's im provement in health than any statement from the doctors could have done. San Francisco, May IS.—Mrs. McKinley is reported by Henry T. Scott to be in an improved condition this morning. The president attended the launching of the battleship^ At 8:45 a. m. Secretary Cortelyou gave out the following statement: Drs. Hlrschfelder, Gibbons and Gushing met Dr. Rixey at 8 a. m., and found Mrs. Mc- Kinley's condition decidedly improved since last evening. During the president's absence at the launching, Mrs. McKinley slept quietly, and it was reported to the president that her condition is constantly improving. The President's Part. When the chief executive left the Scott house at 9:40 he walked briskly down to his carriage. He appeared in good spirits and the careworn expression noticeable I for the past few days, had disappeared. There was every temptation for the crowd to cheer, but for fear of disturbing Mrs. McKinley there was no demonstra tion, merely a respectful lifting of hats. In the carriage with President McKin ley were Henry T. Scott and Police Com missioner George Newhall. A mounted guard of four policemen accompanied the party. i"-.?-'. • The president drove rapidly through the streets and was cheered enthusiastically and in response • repeatedly lifted his hat. Arrived at the transport dock, he- boarded the government tug Slocum, which was to carry the presidential party to the scene. Besides the cabinet members and the ladies, there were on board Governor Nash of Ohio and his staff and ladies; Miss Barber, niece of Mrs. McKinley, and Miss Deshler and her sister. Ast Volume of Sound. The Slocum was handsomely decorated with flags and draped with the national colors. As she left the transport dock the screeching of whistles, the clanging of bells and the booming of cannon made a volume of sound that could be heard for miles, announcing that the presidential party was on Its way. A great fleet of j craft of every possible description had i preceded the president, all loaded down with masses of humanity. It was a glor ious sight. Flags and bunting streamed I from their fastenings, flags fluttered and streamers trailed in the wind. Bands played popular airs and there was inces sant cheering. Added to the noise was the boom of cannon from several war ships. Barges without number, loaded to their utmost capacity, were towed down j the bay by powerful tugs and in and out of the procession steamed the government tugs, bearing Governor Gage, his staff and other state officers. President McKinley arrived at the Union Iron Works shortly after 10 o'clock. There he found the 3,300 employes as sembled in the big yard. The president was greeted with a cheer and was pre sented a gold plate in memory of the oc casion. He spoke briefly to the men, thanking them for the gift and compli menting them on their skill as workmen. After an inspection of the works, Mr. McKinley went to a stand, where he saw the launching. When that was over he boarded the Slocum and returned to the Scott residence. The Ohio Weds the Waves. Miss Barber pressed the button, Miss Deshler smashed a bottle of California champagne ant at 12:26 p. m. the big bat tleship Ohio took her first dip into the eea. , ■ -. : .'■:'■ 1 Fifty thousand people cheered them selves hoarse: the big guns of the war ships boomed out a salute and every steam whistle within a radius of five miles shrieked its loudest as the steel monster glided into the water. The noise lasted nearly half an hour and when it finally simmered down, there lay the Ohio, peacefully floating in the little cove in front of the Union Iron works. Later she was towed to the dock where she will be tied for a year or more until completed. As the vessel slid into the water stern foremost, she created a big wave ■< that made even the biggest steamers nearby bob uncomfortably up and down. As for the smaller craft, they nearly stood on end. Mrs. McKinley was to have pressed the button, but Miss Barber acted in her place. Irving M. Scott and Henry T. Scott took the president and Governor Nash and their parties for a cursory inspection of the more important sections of the great yards. By 12 the greater number of the nation's representatives and other guests had arrived at the stand. Great Steel Monster.. They saw lying there a great shape of steel, ready for the sea. The greater part of the false superstructure had been re moved. The battle craft lay in her great wooden cradle oh the slippery ways. To ward the stern the ribs of the cradle ran well up her sides, shortening towards the forward length _of the siiip and disap pearing. The ceremonies were simple but signifi cant. There was the formal exchange of acceptances upon the part of the govern ment and then the tide having reached its flood the word was given. The bottle of California champagne depended from the bow by ribbons of red, white and blue, braided into a rope. At 12:26 p. m. Irving M. Scott gave Miss Barber the signal and she touched the magic electrical machine. The guillotine shot downward like a flash and severed the cord. The dog shore toppled over of its own weight and the cleverly constructed system of props caved in like a house of cards. The Ohio seemed' to shiver slightly, the SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 18, 1901. —^^~~^~- v— — ■ ■ " ■ THE NEW ATLAS. Atlas—Well, that takes a load off my shoulders, and how easily he seems to handle it. tremor running her entire length, and in a twinkling she began to slide. And then — rush, a bound, a cracking and creaking and groaning of the timbers beneath and round her—she shot down the ways, stern foremost, and took her dip into the sea. THE TURNING POINT It Came With the Saline Injection Into the Blood. San Francisco, Cal. r . May 18.—It is learned to-day that the rally which marked the turning point in Mrs. Mc- Kinley's .illness came immediately after a treatment on Thursday which included a saline Injection directly into the blood. Her pulse showed quick improvement and she continued to improve all day yester j day. Leading physicians who have been informed of the course of treatment which has been pursued not only entertain . the hope, but have confidence n the prediction, that the patient will have better health in the future than she has had for many years. Yesterday she talked to her at tendants and smilingly told one of her physicians that she wanted fried chicken. She made an effort to get up, contrary to the advice of her physician. : /."■- The patient was blessed with several ! hours of natural sleep early yesterday I morning. Opiates were not administered to invite sleep but a powerful stimulant was given to reinforce the action of the j heart. The expressed desire for solid | nourishment was accepted as a hopeful sign, but the doctors believe that it is not prudent to oblige her in this respect. It is yet impossible to determine when Mrs. McKinley will be able to leave this city for her home even if she continues to im prove as rapidly as appeared before fe verish symptoms were again noted late last night. Last evening it was thought at the house that Mrs. McKinley might safely be put on an eastbound train as early as next Monday or Tuesday, but it is more than likely that the Scott residence will be the home of the president for at least ten days to come. In fact one circumstance indi cated strongly that the president and his official family may be compelled to re main in the city for even a longer time than that. This fact is that the John Hooper residence at Clay and La Cuna streets has been offered to the president for the use of the members of his cabinet in order that they may be neaier to him for the consideration of affairs of state. The offer was considered, but no definite answer has been given. Hundreds of people constantly linger about, the slopes of liafayette park just across the street, affording a good view of the temporary executive mansion. The president's appearance is eagerly awaited and his every movement is closely ob served. The crowd, however, is quiet and respectful, all realizing that manifesta tions of enthusiasm are out of place while Mrs. McKinley lies so critically ill. . "THIS FRAIL ROSE" Delicate Tribute Paid by a Paris Paper. JV«r I'orJfc Sun Special Service, Paris, May 18.—' Matin pays * this beautiful tribute to Mrs. McKinley: San Francisco is gaily decorated, but President McKinley is ■in . mourning. The population prepared' a fete to receive him, but the fete nearly cost the life of his dear companion. Mine. McKinley's health : suc cumbed after three triumphal receptions, when she pressed so many loyal though often callous hands. Always delicate, this ■woman possessed a strong soul. In.his career Ihe president often hesitated, but this frail rose, which lived in the shadow of a great oak, supported him. Delicate woman as. she was, she has lifted the courage, of this man, who has attained the summit of success. At the White House she intro.dced the charm of discretion and the grace of art. Now her husband watches over her and, forgetting that he is chief of one of the greatest nations in the world, he hangs on the breath of this model of a statesman's wife.
