A Plan for Revision of Faith Adopted. The Southern Presbyterian General Assembly Adjourns. Southern Methodists Consider the Divorce Question— Original Packages in Pennsylvania, Associated Press Dispatches.! Saratoga, X. V., May 24.—After the 4 reading of the minutes in the Presby terian general assembly today, Dr. Thompson, of New York, moved that the report of the committee on concensus of the creed be the first order after the vote on revision. The motion prevailed. Dr. Frskine, chairman of the commit tee on method of revision, read a report. The committee recommends that a com mittee, composed of one member of the assembly from each synod, to wit: Nine teen ministers and ten elders, be ap pointed by the moderator to nominate to this assembly a committee, consisting of fifteen ministers and ten elders, which shall be called the "Assembly's Com mittee on Revision of the Confession of Faith," which committee, when consti tuted by the general assembly, shall consider the suggestions made by the presbyteries, and formulate to the gen eral assembly of 1891 such alterations and amendments to the confession of faith as in their judgment may be deemed desirable, and that this "com mittee shall not propose any alterations •or amendment that will in any way im pair the integrity of the reformed or ■Calvinißtic system of doctrine taught in the confession of faith. The report was adopted unanimously. The moderator appointed the com mittee, naming Dr. William C. Roberts, of Illinois, chairman. Their report will probably be given Monday. Dr. Roberts said the overtures of twenty-six presbyteries were in favor that the new concensus of the creed should be referred to a committee of nine, who shall invite the co-oper ation of the reformed bodies in prepar ing a short, clear comprehensive state ment of the points in which all the re formed churches are agreed; not as a substitute for, but supplemental to, the Westminster confession. It must con tain the essentials of the reformed faith, and be the basis of union and co operation by all affiliated bodies, espe cially in their work in foreign lands. The motion for a concensus of the creed, after much discussion, was passed by a large majority. The committee on church unity presented a report. Em phasis is laid upon federation as a prin ciple on which the evangelical christians cannot co-operate. BAPTIST MISSIONS. A Large Field for Work in the Interior of Africa.

His Wife's Fruitless Efforts to Effect His Release—A Peremptory Order From Blame Does tho Business. New York, May 24.—Among the cabin passengers on the Augusta Victoria from Hamburg was Herman Kempinski, a Russian by birth and a naturalized American citizen. He was on the way to his home in Bridgeport, after having spent thirteen months in a Russian prison on the charge of evading military duty. He was accompanied by his wife and two little girls, who remained near him while he was confined in jail. They hud returned to Russia to visit their parents, and the husband was arrested without charges. Kempinski tells an interesting story of his experience, and his wife's efforts to procure his release. She tirst applied to Wurtz, the American consul, who promised to intercede, but nothing more was heard from him. A few months later a friend coming to America, laid the case before Secretary Bayard, but the correspondence which followed had no result. The friend a few months ago laid the case before Secre tary Blame, who, according to Kempin ski's story, notified Wurtz to demand the prisoner's release, and failing, to demand passports and leave the country. As soon as this cable was laid before the czar he ordered the prisoner's release. This was immediately effected, and the unfortunate man was treated with every consideration. He says the Russian jailers demanded money for everything done, and that his wife ex pended nearly ten thousand dollars dur ing his imprisonment. He will see Sec retary Blame, and try to recover his money. CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. Many Visitors in Attendance—The Per manent Exhibit.

IN FOREIGN FIELDS. The Land-Grabbers in the Dark Continent, England Getting Jealous of Germany. Negotiations Between the two Nations Discontinued. Emperor William Toasts His Grand mother on the Occasion of Her Birthday. Associated I'ress DisDatch.es. I Bhrun, May 24.—[Copyrighted, 1890, by the New York' Associated Press]. —The negotiations witli England concerning territory in Africa, have been abruptly suspended by the British ambassador, under orders from Lord Salisbury, and the ambassador intimates that they will be resumed only on the basis of the recognition by Germany of English rights on the west coast of Lake Tan ganyika and the territories north of Tanganyika, including Uganda. This abrupt action, which the foreign office attributes to public clamor in England, has brought out an energetic protest from Chancellor Caprivi, undoubtedly inspired by the emperor. The North German Gazette intimates that Germany will uphold the continuance of the English occupation of Egypt if Germany obtains hold in the districts of Central Africa, claimed by England. Emperor AVilliam is celebrating Qneen Victoria's birthday with unusual cere mony. The whole British embassy wais banqueted tonight at the royal castle. The emperor toasted the queen effusively. The English flag was displayed on every government building. It is not likely, however, that this display will induce Salisbury to concede the German de mands, even if Egypt should be thrown in the balance. Caprivi will not modify his demands, and the issue will be the indefinite suspension of negotiations, leaving both parties to proceed with the game of territory grabbing, until the complications arising therefrom become more critical. It is believed now that the army bill will be ] assed by the reichstag by a large majority, despite the government's admission that the present demand is only an installment. The Fremnnige Zemma says the disclosures made to the committee show that in the near future the German peace effective will be 614, --000, instead of 468,000 men. The socialist and freisinnige papers team with stories about the emperorand Bismarck. It is asserted that the em peror is highly incensed because of Bismarck's statements to the correspon dents of foreitm papers that he speaks of the ex-chancellor as only tit for a lun atic asylum, and that he intends to send him final warning before dealing with him as an enemy of the state. What ever may be the emperor's irritation it has not caused a rupture with Bismarck. The emperor has sent a letter to Yon Moltke warmly congratulating him upon his recent speech in the reichstag in favor of the army bill. Prince William of Saxe-Weimar, has been declared bankrupt (his debts are due to gambling) for 24,000 marks. BANISHED JOIKNAI.ISTS. A Dispute About Crlspi's Animus in Ex pelling French Correspondents. Roue, May 24. —In the deputies today, Premier Crispi, replying to questions, declared that there was no political motive for the recent expulsion of French newspaper correspondents. The ex pelled journalists had for several months been engaged in a campaign organized in Paris, to decry Italian credit and securities. Pabis, May 24. —Hava's agency pub lishes a reply to the statement made by Premier Crispi, in the Italian chamber, relative to the' expulsion of French correspondents from Italy. It declares that at the date mentioned by Crispi, the correspondents referred to had not begun to send dispatches to their papers, and therefore it was evident they were expelled solely because they were Frenchmen. THOSE STOLEN KISSES. The Kissers Sentenced to Life Banish ment— Russia Satisfied. Constantinople, May 24. —The Turk ish officers and five students, arrested for assaulting the wife and daughter of the chief dragoman of the Russian em bassy, at Buyukdare, have been sen tenced to six months' imprisonment, followed by life banishment to Tripoli.

Paris, May 24. — Siecle publishes a telegram from St. Petersburg, giving the details of a conspiracy at headquarters in Berlin, for a rising in the Russian Baltic provinces. De Gibern, Russian prime minister, has asked Chancellor Caprivi to take steps, in the interests of peace, to prevent plotting in Berlin, or elsewhere in German territory.
