Dickey of Philadelphia, who was moderator of the last General As sembly and chairman of the special Com mittee on Creed Revision, whose report. with slight amendments, was adopted, to- nai. ..lil. uuj . smu. "The final action of the General Assembly on the question of rexlslon should gratify the whole church. It meanx first that the church may expect peace and progress dur ing the coming year. Only good will and great blessing could be expected as a result of such unanimity and magnanimity. The action of the assembly manifested mutual conflder.ee. Without dissent, the assembly aetermlned to go forward, and distinctly marked out the wav of the forward moe ment. Practically the majority report was aoopted. "The Interpretation put upon section B by a very 'few made It advisable to state the real purpose of section B with more pre cision. This was successfully done by the amendment proposed by Doctor Moffat, and ms amendment was promptly accepted by the committee, because It fully and clearly expressed the purpose of the majority of the committee. The hearty acceptance of the action of the assembly by those repre sented In the minority report was one of the most significant manifestations of the KCoil spirit that controlled the assembly. "The amendment offered by Doctor Mof fat means that there is a. strong sentiment in the church In favor of a declaratory statement and anxious to make ns few changes as possible in the text of the Con fession of Faith. "Unless the committee should blunder or despise Its Instructions, moderate revision and a statement for information was as sured." Professor John De Witt of Princeton The ological Seminary, a strong advocate of dis missal, said: "Of course. I still believe that the best thing that the assembly could have done to be the dlslmsal of everything but some declaration emphasizing our large liberty under the present terms of subscription. But to this action the assembly was op posed by three to one. "The second best action is that actually taken, and in the circumstances I voted for It with cordiality." OPPOSE SECRETSOCIETIES. Committee's Report on Attitude of Presbyterian Assembly. Des Moines, In.. May 27. This morning" the United Presbyterian Assembly placed Its seal upon the question of approving woman's suffrage by formally accepting the report of the Judiciary Committee, which was to the effect that the question was purely a civic one. and, therefore, not one that properly can come before an ec clesiastical legislative body. This afternoon the Committee on Ju diciary handed down Its report on the po- i-itlon of the church as opposed to secret organiratlons. It says in part: "In view of the existing diversity in the Interpretation of the fifteenth article of .the testimony and In the application of It by sessions In the admission of members of secret orders nnd in Iew of the great multiplication of these orders and of their diversity In purpose and character, tha General Assembly adopts the following as expressive of the mind of the church on the subject: "In the administration of this article, ns of others of the testimony sessions, the church possesses the right to exercise a wise discretion in dealing with such cases as have fellowship in associations which bind their members by oaths or affirmations to obligations and to Immoral secrecy, or which establish a fraternal fellowship among men subversive of the unity of the body of Christ. It Is especially obligatory upon Christians to stand aloof from the so cieties' which by their moral teachings and religious ritual foster a belief in the salva blllty of men npart from the mediation of Christ. We condemn such organizations as demoralizing to our I.ord and Injurious to men and persons who. with knowledge of the truth concerning them, adhere to such associations, and they shall not be received Into church membership.

In the absen:o of developments In the Beaumont Held, not taking Into account the new Gufley gusher which came In on time Sunday morning, considerable interest Is manifested here In the oil strike at Sour Lake last Saturday. This afternoon a telegram was received from J, S. Burke, a civil engineer, who was sent by Captain WUUam Wiess of Beau mont to Investigate, saying that the drill In the Guffey well at Sour Lake had passed through fourteen feet of oil sand and that a flow of oil amounting to 250 barrels a day had resulted. Burke added that the well was being sunk deeper. From another source information came to the effect that the flow was not more than six barrels a day. Whatever the producing qualities of the deposit of oil sand which was encountered may be. It is accepted as a fact that the oil Is there, principally because It has been found In that locality whenever wells have been put down to a sufficient depth. Tho gushers at Beaumont have served to blind Texas operators to the value of ordinary flowing wells. In the East a well producing 100 barrels a day by pumping Is considered a good proposition.

Sanitary District Not Answerable to Missouri Complainants for Violating Illinois Laws. RErUHLIC SPECIAL. Washington, May 27. In the case of the State of Missouri against Illinois and the Sanitary District of Chicago, the Supreme Court to-day sustained the demurrer of the defendants to the fourth paragraph ot the amended complaint filed by Attorney Gen eral Crowe and City Counselor Schnur rench'er. This Is tho paragraph which charged the sanitary district with violating the law of Illinois creating the corporation, which re quired that 300,000 cubic feet of water per minute should be turned into the Des 1'lalnes River through the canal, and that, by a recent order of the Secretary of War. the flow had Deen reduced to 200,000 cublo feet a minute. Tho defendants demurred to this para graph on the ground that if the sanitary district had tlolated the law of the State of Illinois It must and would'answer to the State of Illinois and not the complainants In this case; that the issue In this case turned upon the question as to whether the turn ing In of the sewage of the city of Chicago into the Des Plalnes River had polluted the Mississippi River opposite the State of Mis souri, and that It did not concern the Stato of Missouri as to whether the sanitary dis trict was complying with the law of Illinois' or not. The court sustained the contention of the defendants, and this part of the bill does not require an answer by Chicago. The court Tuesday will adjourn .finally for the term. Unless the stipulation for the appointment of a commissioner to take tes timony Is received from Attorney General Crowe by Tuesday morning there will be no commissioner appointed, and the taking of testimony will depend upon agreements to be made by the parties outside the courts. The stipulation has been forwarded to At torney General Crowe at Buffalo for his signature, but has not been received back from him.

May 27-The following- let ter from ex-Governor Stone to Editor E. E. Bean of this city on the proposed Pertle Springs convention was received to-day. "St. Louis, May 23. I have received a marked oopy of the Mall containing an In terview with me, recently published in a St. Louis newspaper. I do not object to anything appearing In the Interview, but as It was written by a reporter and not by me. I believe I can make my position on the proposition to hold another so-called Pertle Springs convention a little clearer than It appears to be in tha Interview. "I have not. and do not favor the propo sition for the following- reasons! "The National Democracy met In con vention at Kansas City on July t, 190ft and then and there unanimously adopted a plat form and organized a National Committee. Shortly thereufter the State Democracy met In convention and unanimously adopt ed a platform and organized a State com mittee. These platforms and committees stand to-day as tho latest expression of party sentiment as representative of tho party organization. 1 believe the Missouri Democracy Is satisfied with these platforms and organizations, and I know I am. Xo Jteed for Proposed Convention. "I see no need, therefore, of a convention being called merely to reaffirm the plat form or to indorse the organization. "If there are any who wish to change the platform of the organisation, let them de mand a convention. Such a demand from that quarter would be logical. If a demand of that kind should come from that quar ter. I would second the motion. "If the 'reorganlzers' wish to put this question to the test. I have no objection. Moreover, I will say that, while I see no necessity for a convention at this time, I have no objection to one being held if it should appear that there is any consider able sentiment in favor of it. "Being a Jeffersonlan Democrat, I believe In the sovereignty of the people. I believe the people should be. In fact as well as in theory, the real eourco of power. There fore, I am always willing to hear what they have to say and to submit to their will. Xo Special Objection to It. "I do not believe there would be any dan ger to tho party of the country In a con vention composed of representative Demo crats, held at'.any tlmo or for any purpose. Hence I have no special objection to a con cntlon. although I see no necessity for It. "So far as I have noted the utterances of ex-Governor .Stephens on thl- subject, I have not understood him as urging that a convention should be held, but only as sug gesting that, for certain reasons given by him. such a course might become advisable: nor have I understood tnat air. uook ana others who have advised against a conven tion are especially opposed to It, but that they would regard the holding of one as unnecessary nnd impolitic at this time. "So far the differences between Demo crats upon this subject are not serious, nor are they likely to become so. The discus sion. In my opinion, however, has done no harm. On the contrary. I think It has dono good, since It has tended to arouse the par ty In the Stato and attract attention to a This Tells The Om Opinion taken from cite one ihoutand tttttmamialt reeerae from tnt moot prominent phyticiant all enr th merfd. ria DAVID WALSH.
