dered his resignation as pastor of the West- I

meeting of the congregation has been called
for tomorrow evening, when the matter will
be considered. The announcement of Dr.
Rev. Gerhart A. Wilson.
Wilson's request for severance of the pas- I
toral relatioa was made from the pulpit I
Sunday morning. He has accepted a call i
to the First Presbyterian Church of Provi
dence. R. I., and expects to remove there J
In tendering his resignation Dr. Wilson
said: "Happy memories will always cluster
about my thoughts of the Western Church
and its dear people. Of unpleasant features
there have been just enough to remind us
that roses do not grow without thorns. We
have experienced joys and sorrows in sym
pathy with each other.
"It has been my pleasure to have baptized
your children; It has been my joy to have
received them Into the church; it has been I
my happy privilege to have united some of I
them In the bonds of holy matrimony; I 4
have had your confidence in the ministry I
of the word and of prayer In the chamber I
of sickness; it has been my sacred duty to I
stand by the forms of your departed dead I
and remind you of the resurrected Christ,
the Christian's hope. From this desk I
have ministered to you of the word of God,
as He has given me light to understand it,
and always with the purest of motives. Not
frequently, I believe, have I been misunder
stood or misinterpreted. To err is human.
Undoubtedly both you and I have made
mistakes, but the spirit of charity has kept
us in the bond of peace through these years.
"These experiences which we have had
in common form ties between us that can
not be severed even by the dissolution of
the pastoral relation."

Prospects Good for Oysters.
The prospects for a bountiful supply of
oysters on the beds In Chesapeake bay are
said to be very flattering. Capt. William
H. Sanders of the Maryland oyster police
schooner May Brown recently made a cruise
along the eastern shore of the bay, and re
ports plenty of oysters on most of the bars,
the growth of young oysters being very
satisfactory. Reports coming from the por
tions of Chesapeake bay in Virginia also
indicate a good supply of the bivalves.
The tonging for oysters In the tributaries
of the bay In Maryland and Virginia be
gins tomorrow, and hundreds of boats are
awaiting midnight tonight to sail for the
oyster grounds. The taking of the oysters

Sailing Vessel Inspected.
Under the marine laws all sailing vessels
of over 700) tons burden have to undergo an
annual inspection at the hands of the
steamboat Inspection service to determine
their seaworthiness and to ascertain If
they have steam power aboard to raise
anchors, sails, &c. The boiler used has
also to be inspected. It is seldom that the
Inspection of sailing vessels takes place
here, but the enforced laying up of the
fleet of coasting schooners while awaiting
business made it necessary for the big four
masted schooner Edward E. Briry to be in
spected in this port. This was done Mon
day last by one of the inspectors from the
office of the steamboat inspectors at Balti
more. and the big schooner was found to
he in the best of condition. The new ma
rine regulations also reQuire vessel masters
and mates to pass an examination for 11

of steam vessels.
