Against the Recent Resolution In
doming- the Action of the Pres
bjterian General A?emWy.
The fullowinK Is the protest entered
1 U . i n r i I V , I 1 . . . ,..
uy iud uiiiiuii'y j iuv redout reisuiu-
tion of the Synod of Memphis in
dorsing me actio a oi tue rrissyieriaa
General Assembly:
Wbbbbas, The Synod of Memphis
did, at it) recant eessios in Grenada,
approve the following action taken by
the last General Asstmbly,as recorded
on page lo oi us minntes:
"To the several overtures on the
subject of the evolution of man, etnt
up by toe presbytanes, the General
Assembly returns ensarer as follows,
namely :
"Tbe church remains at this time
sincerely convinced that theScripturos,
as truly and authoritatively ex
pounded in our confession ot faith
and cba'echistuR, teach
"That Adam's body wag directly
fashioned by Alnvghiy God wi'hou:
any natural animal parentage of any
kidU, out oi matier previously created
from nothing.
"And t-at any doclrine atvaiiance
therewith is a Jai geroua error, inas-
tuuuu hb iq ma iub'dous oi luierproi
ins; Scripture it mus' dvmand, and in
tbe consequences which by fair impli
cation it will Involve, it will lead to
the denial of doctrines fundamental
to the faith."
Therefore the undersigned mem
bers of the synod do nspt c fuliy entei
their protest aga;nst such action oi the
synod fur these reasons:
FiM That in attempting to inter
P'etthe Holy Word of God the assem
bly has herein gone beyond the Word
as written, in that it elates dogmat
ically what the Hcriptuiea- do not re
veal, either expressly or by tond and
nece'eary inference, namely, the pre
cise mnde in which Almighty power
ect.d in producing the body of Adam
and tbe precise form of pre-exUting
nia'ter out of which it pleased God to
create that body. The assembly's in
terpolation of God'd Word positively
asset ts (1) that Almighty power acted
"immediately," that is instantaneous
ly, without lapse of time, or any pro
gressive stepi; and (2) that the pre
existing matter used by tbe creative
power was inorganic, non-vitalized
matter, as discriminated from matter
existing in a living form. Wherias,
in point of fact, all that God's Wcrd
reveas touching the creation of
Adam's body is: (1) That it wpb pro
duced by God's almighty power, aud
(2) that in so creating it God was
pleased, of His own free will, to use
pretxieting matter, as may be saen
from a diligent comparison nf these
tex's, amot'groaDyoths-is: Gn. ii, 7;
Eccl. xii, 7; Fsa. exxxix, 2-16: Job
x, 8-10; Isa. lxiii, 1; Job xxxiti,6.
becoudly H:cause in inus attempt
ing to interpret Fcriptare tbe a'sem
bly has iudiiectly, but inevitably.
br ught the church and the Holy
Bible also into unnecessary collision
with a scientific opinion or theory
which is beta more and more widely
accepted among educated people, and
especially the youths of our congrega
tions and of the world. And such
collision, being unnecessary, is to be
deplored: Firtt, bfciuse it mu-t re
mit ia tbe rejHction of the B. hie by
increasing numbers of cultivated peo
ple: and, secondly, because it may
lead tj a humiliating df feat of the
church, as has b en the case in al
mist every similar occasion for the
past 300 years.
Wbkbbas, Also, the synod approved
the following a tion of the assembly,
recorded in its minutes on page 41:
"RetoU'cd, That whertas tbe General
Assembly is convinred that the Rev.
James Woodrow, D.D , one of the pro
feasors in Columbia Theological Semi
nary, holds views repugnant to the
Ward of God and to our confeesion of
faith, ss appears hoth by his address
published in the Soutliern Presbyterian
Review for July, 1884, and in ether
publications and by h's statement
made upon the floor of this asemb'y,
therefore this assembly does here
by, in its action of yesttrday in
regard to the oversight of
theological seminaries, ' earnessly
it commend to tbe synods of South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and of
South Georgia and Florida, which di
rect and control tbe said eeminary, to
dismiss the said lis v. James Woodrow,
D D , as a professor in tbe ea!d semi
nary, and to appoint another in his
place, and speedily to take such steps
as in tbeir judgment will be best
adapted to re -tore this eeminary to the
confidence of the church."
Therefore, we, the uaderaigned, do
enter our reepec'ful protest, for the
reasons which are hereunto ap
pended: 1. That each action is unconstitu
tional and illegal ; for, while it is true
that tbe law authorizes the assemb'y
to bear testimony against erior in
doctrine and immorality in practice
injuriously aSecing the church"
Form of Government, chap, v., sec.
vi, v, this action goes far beyond any
such provision, in that it not only
aesstts the existence of erior, but
nanus a particular individual, thereby
alleging matters of fact with regard to
him that can be legally ascertained
only by a judicial inquiry, with its
carefully guarded steps of a written
charge, with specifications, testimony
taken under oath, argument heard
thereupon, and a sentence duly re
corded. And in thus going beyond
the law the essembly has inflicted
"censure witnin tbe meaning ot ttie
Book of Discipline, thereby attainting
aprtsbytera reputation wiahout giv
iiig hira a legal trial."
2. This illegal aciion by the sosem
hlv was wholly inexnediant. unneceS'
rary and unjus', in that it anticipated
the regular judicial process then penoV
irg before a lower court, as was well
known to all the members ot trie as
sembly and to tbe church at large.
Tbe gross irregularity of su h a pro
ceeding woold be in some degree
paralleled it the judges oi a supreme
conrt were to meet as a convention
and pass a resolution condemning by
name a prisoner on trial for his life
before a lower court in the same
State, thereby throwing the whole
weight of their high ollicial position
againBt the prisoner and pledging
theoiBelves beloreband to convict if
the case should cams before them on
3. And this irregu'aiity and injus
tice ai further aggravated by tbe
fact that tbe preebyter thus censured
without trial was at the time the rep
resentative of a sovereign presbytery,
seated among the members of the as
sembly as their peer by a legal com
mission duly certified by the. clerks of
the assembly.
To ths above specified grounds of
protest against the recent action of the
synod at Grenada the minority might
have added the refusal of the maj irity
to enter into free and friendly confer
ence with a view to a full understand
ing of the precise poia's of difference,
and in this way the only way-attaining
to ultimate agreement. By
cutting oil" friend y ditcussion lhey
postpone a mutual uni'erttsnding aid
agreement, and unmcesearilv leave
the minority liable to euFpioioa s

Tbe new departure of the Women's
Exchange in taking a homelike house,
centrally located, adapted to the pur
pose, and also furnishing extra ac
commodations for success! ul business
women in other lines, is worihy of
more than passing note. It is an out
pot of the true idea concerning help
fulness toward dependent woman.
She needs suciv a demonstration from
Rsu:h asonrcn. that labor is an honor
able thing ia women ; that patient in
dustry, and pluck and sxtu win win
both money and respect for women
as for men, and from women as from
men. Up to this time the Exchange
bits addressed its efforts toward find
ing a market for euch skill as might
reveal iteelf, and stimulating to better
work by competition and better pay,
and with very go :d success. Now, an
advanced step is taken ; a higher plane
is o-cupied, while holding more
firmly the lower. The clear
sightad and brave women our own
wives aid sis era and daughters
who, not sati bed that the Exchange
should be an insmedia'e succor toa few
really needy sinters, now aspire to
make the very building which houses
it an exponent, in some degiee, of avail
respecting and independent woman
liness, are thereby eeiting up a beacon
l;ght to all struggling; womanhood.
Tne new enterpriss ia courageous
one, a noble ene. It needs and de
serves the hearts and the hands of this
generous community.

To the Editoraef the Appeal:
Id your issue of the 14th ins'ar.t
you copy an article from tho hlmittippi

a comparison of nmrlaary s a intica
between the City Hospital cf Mem
phis and the City II mpital of St. Li uis,
Chtrity lljsiutal, New Orleans, and
the Marine Uoepi al, Memphis. The
Monttily has not only misrepresented
the condition of "our Hospital," but
has published to the world statistics
of its own make which ate not correc,
which do an injustice to our paople
and an injury to Memphis if allowed
to go uncontradicted.
There can ba no compiion be
tween the bt. Louis Hospital ami our
Ho'pital, because of the surroundings
of tbe two cities, and, therefore, the
character of the diseases treat, d, are
somewhat diliirent. The counties
and small towns surrounding St. Loirs
nave lioepiuisol their own, In which
a great uiauy pauper patients are
treated. They aie not shipped to the
St Louis Hospital in a dying condi
tion, as is done almost daily bv the
counties tributary ti Memphis There
bsing no hopi'ali neater to Memphis
thau Cairo, L.t In Kock and Vitks
bur, it will be eeen U a glance that
we have a la'ge teriitory, fie mist
unhealthy probably in tho Mississippi
Valley, from which ti receive our
patients. They com to us from every
State and Territory in Amor ca and
almost every country on the globe,
brokrn down by hardships and ex
posure aid btarvation, and over
powered by malaria in its moat viru
lent form
The Marine Hospital does not trout
this class of patient;. It rirsivej no
cases ot pernicious ma'ural fevers
and congestions contraoted in the
swamps of Arkansas and Miesiesippi.
Nor does it receive any of the ehronio
diseases in their last stages, shipped
to this city for a place to die, recovery
being beyond hope.
Notwithstanding these f.icts, it will
be seen further ou that the molal
ity in oar hospittl compares most fa
vorably with that of the hospital men
toned by the Monthly.
We have a right to expeot the
Monthly to puhlUh true statistics and a
true picture nfour Hospital when it
attemp's to discuss matters of such im
portance and interest to cur people.
But throughout this discureicn it lias
not hesitated to publish just 3 much
as suited te ends it had in view, and
has not hesitated to make statements
thatcanno.be verified, Tne follow
ing tnble it publishes as the ollicial

This shows the morality in toe City
Hospital of Memphis to be less than
one per cent, more than St. Louis, 4
per c-nt. less than the Charity Hospi
tal, New Orleans, lets than the Ma
rine Hospital, Memphis, and 5.65 per
cent, lets than the "official figures"
given by the Monthly.
Below I give a table of the admis
sions, discharges and deaths for the
yearn mentioned,

I am In favor of improving the con
dition of our Hospital, and recommend
ed an increase In the appropriation in
my biannual report in 1884. 1 am also
in favor of moving thellospital outside
the city limits, btit these can only be
done by legislative enactment. Mem
phis should have a new Hospital with
all modem improvements in heating,
ventilation, etc., built r utaide the city
limits in order to avoid embiacing its
mortuary reports in that of Memphis,
and an increase in the appropriation
of $10,000 to $15,000.1 With this
amount tbe comfotts of the Hospital
could be increased, its efficiency aug
mented and its death rate lowered.
Without an increaas in the appropria
tion it is impossible to do any better
than is beiug done at present.

Tbe above show opened on live bluff
last night to a crowded lent, and Hun
dreds were turned away, ine per
formance was in. every way satisfac
tory and called forth anhounded ex
presslons of approval by the large au
dience present. Among tne nest, ibb
tnres are Zo a. the lady who rides a
bicycle over a wire suspended high in
the air. Her most marvelous feat is
carrving ancthor lady across on her
back She ii the only woman in
America who performs this feat. Sam
well s performing dogs are very re
markable. Tbev l?ao higher than
any other trained doss ever eeen here
The performances ot these intelligent
animals aro especially interesting 10
children. Another wonderful animal is
Leon's acting donkey, which seems to
have almost human intelligence.
The Forapangh family, in their act
called the "L,ap for L.ie, give a very
thrilling exhibition of skill and daring.
Their bicycle riding and performances
on ladders are also remarkable. Annies,
Dollia and Mamie Fornpauith do
novel act in skatine or riding on the
unicycle. Kline, with bis kicking
son v. Peanuts: Harrison, the contor
tionist, and other features of the show
make it generally satisfactory. The
admission nrice is remarkably cheap
for tbe entertainment. Its exhibitions
are given every afternoon and evening
during the week on the blud at the
foot of Union street.
KoblBSJon'a Mnoeum,
The Museum opened yetterday and
rcored a great success". It wss visited
during the day by hundreds of ladies
and children and by many of the
sterner sex. The souvenirs distribut
ed ssemed to be greatly appreciated
by tbe ladies, and in order to meet
the popular demand for them another
distribution will take place today.

The people of MemDhis. as tha
thea'er loving nnblic of all the leading
cities of the Union, have a vary envi
able memory of Mr. Kibett B. Man
tell, who, as a romantic, emotional
actor has no rival on the American
s'age. Hence it was there was a
gatheriog of very appreciative plny-
gosrs present lust night to greet
him and bis company in the
new society drama of 2'uiiafVd Xw.
From the firtt act to the la t the audi
ence was in sympathy wit'i the play
era and followed with keen and in
creasing interest the development of
tbe p ot, which aOotds abundant oc
casion for the talents cf one ot tiie
beat comedy companies wo hive ever
had in Memphis. The plot btittly re
counted is as foil iws: "Kiyniond
Gtirih," a young New York gentleman,
meets with and fails in love wiib o-u
"Heiou ltiithbmrne," a woman of ob
scure parentage, whose husband, un
known to "Garth," is still alive.
"Gart'a" InlBtuution for "Helen"
lin ils him to resign his arcial position
and live a Bohemian life with the
object of his love. His infatua
tion is, however, of short duration,
though "Helen's" passion s'eadily
deepens aud strengthens. "Garth"
had absented himself from his f irmer
cite'e of acquaintances for some years,
when the play opens upon th birth
day party of "Edith Ainsloy," whnss
life "Garth" had saved by rescuing
her fro 01 drowning a short time previ
ous. "Garth," urged by "Jisephtu
Howron," a warm friend, has re
solved to give up bis s rludou, and at
tends the party, to bo overwhelmed
with "I'.vltth a girl-like protestations
of gia'itudo for his service to her.
'Garth," charmed with "Edith's" in-
noeence, returns to bis apartments in
n unhappy frame of mind, and de
termines upon a formal mariinse
wsith "Helen," in order that he
may again enter society. "Helen
refuses and charges "Garth" with
new love. A quarrel ensues,
and they sepaiate. At this time
"Helen" also dbcoveis that her
husband is BKsrchlrg for her. To
elude b in, and f,ee "Garth 'from any
further knowledge of her, she goes to
Cuba, and, in the fever season, sac
ceeds in having her name put upon
the records of the dead. "Garth," dis
covering the record and supposing
himself free, returns to "kMith" and
ins tier love, confessing all his life a
history before accepting this eift.
"Helen," moanwhilo,. returns to New
V k .n.l Sn,l,n all nOiu,
closed to her, succeeds nndor an as
sumed name in entering the services
of the Alnsley family. Here ber
presence is made known to "Garth,"
just as. he has gained the promise of
"Edith" to become his wife. "Helen"
succeeds in compelling "Gsrth" to
acknowledge her as bis wife, and
Garth" sgreus to Iu:flll Ins legal
duties as to her support, but
decides to leave the country.
He returns to the Ainsloy family to
exonerate bimsslf, and while there,
Helen again imploroa him to return
to tbe old relations In tbe mean
time, however, he learns from his
good friend, "Howson," the fact that
ho has been doceived by "Helem" from
the first; that her husband is liv
ing, and he casts her off and is accept
ad bv "riiiith." The drama lh
toniplex is essentially American and
deals witb American nieaiiu aiuenuau
io ami miatnm. bnt it is French in
spirit without, however, other taint of
suggestiveness inaninav wuiun wn
seived in the life ot "Helen Garth."
Tha dialogue ia bright, witty, satirical
and serious, the lituaions srs
cliaiming, laughable and intense
ly dramatic, and the unfolding
of the intricate plot holds the aud
ience in sympathy w.tu tne moous oi
the lov-irs. "Garth" and "Edith," the
bright and sparkling comedy that cen
ters in "Howson" and "Aunt Elista"
and the absurdities of "Dainty" and
"Bronno." The grave and gay.the lively
and severe, were admirably mixed and
laughter and tears chased each other
rani V. Mr. MantOll in prfHBinii'K
tliia nfav gives fresh evidence of the
stndions ca-e wi'h which be rogafda
his art and the high respect tie baa lor
his audiences. This was evidenced not
only in what he bimeelt did ss a
verv nnlslieu actor, out in iue nicety
as to tinge sotting and arrangement
with which the play was presented,
and the comforting ease with which it
was performed. Jt wss well done. vr,
Mantell ss "Garlh." we need hardly
say, snstains his well earned reputa
t on. ui intense emotion, itie emo
tion that is only half expressed, he
is a master. There is nothing
maudlin about it; it Is the strong,
overmastering feeling that only
manly, an almost regal nature, can
lu.lil m check nntil bursting beads
the will almost ti breaking Second
ing him, with admirable delicacy and
restraint. Miss Carev shared with him
the applause of the audience in the
more dramatie scenes. It ia
seldom that a woman is pre
sented in o unlovely a guise
as that of "Helen Garth." IA Is not a
pait to win an audience, bat Miss
Caroy, by the pBthosof be acting in
tbe Bohemian scene in theeecond act,
wins her audience and. holds it
even at the latt, where she avows
the depths of her despair
and her fail. She was very clever
and was a finely drawn contrast to the
ingi-nuousneas, the utter simplicity
and sweet girliehn'ssoI'MiBS Shannon
as "Elith." Here thero wAs nature
nothing overdone or overdrawn just
sweet simplicity itrolf. Even in the
outbuis'. cf her strong avowal of h-r
love for "Garth," ehe did rot
overstep the modcB.y of natuie bnt let
her grief well up and find expression
as it would were the situation other
than the counterfeit of real life. She
went in and out of the comedy like a
thread of gold. Of Mr. Wheatcroft's
"Howson" it would be dillku't to
aav an vthlng tjo much.. For
Ansa and flnieh of manner he conld
nnt well be snrnassed. About biro.
