The matur waa up before the presbytary last week, but action waa deferred until to-day. A vf fir aro the oreabvtery asked the general assembly for advioe lo the matter of receiving candidates for the ministry. The general assembly replied as follows: "Wo recommend that. In accordance with the provisions of the form of government previously cited, the preabytery of New York be Instructed and enjoined not to rccelve under Its care for licensure students who are pursuing, or purpose to pursue their studies in theological seminaries respecting whose teachings the general assembly disavows responsibility." I The committee on the minutes of the l general assembly consisted of RoVi Dr. John C. Bliss, Dr. W. W. Atterbury and I George H. Hyde. These gentlemen pre| sdnted their report last week. The report stated: I "Your committee reports that, having examined the minutes of the assembly, ! wo And ,the only subject requiring the special attention of the presbytery to I be that presented in answer to the assembly to the overture from this presbytery fbr instruction relative to its duty towards students applying to be taken under its care who are pursuIug or purpose to pursue, their studies in theological seminaries regarding wh#se teaching the general assembly disavows responsibility. "In answer the general assembly gives the presbytery certain instruction for which all due consideration should be given by us as to presbyteries. As tho assembly further proceeds to enjoin the presbytery as to Its action with reference to the licensure of these stuI dents, it thus attempted to authoritatively control the presbytery in this matter. It seems to us that the general assembly exceeds Its constitutional i powers and Infringes upon the inherent rights of the presbytery, which are specially reserved to it by our conatitu1 tion, as to the exercise of its functions in the reception and licensure of candidates." Dr. John Hall caused a sensation when he said that his idea of what tne presbytery should do would be to say In reply to the general assembly: "That the presbytery of New York ifcslres to report respectfully to the general assembly that It only desires ministers from the presbyteries' ordinations on being satisfied of their acceptance of the standards of the church, and that It Is the presbytery's Intention to apply the same principles In the preservation of scriptural doctrines to all applicants for licenses." th? p#v (hhaj-lea h. Thompson of fered a resolution that the statement of Dr. Hall be adopted as a substitute to the resolution of Dr. Alexander at the previous meeting. Dr. Alexander had moved that the language In the I report of the committee be considered j as the expression of the opinion of the I presbytery. The motion to substitute I the statement read by Dr. Hall for the report of the committee caused no end of confusion. The report pf the committee had been accepted a week ago, but that was all that was done about It, iind Dr. Alexander's motion that it be considered the expression of the opinion of the presbytery was pending when Dr. Hall readahls statement today. , Dr. Alexander seconded Mr. Thompson's motion for the substitute. After a three hour's discussion, the substitute was adopted by a,vote of 61 to 47. JUTEBS AND HA^BOBfl BILL Reported by the Jennie -c hance Made by the Committee. WASHINGTON. D. C?

Cudioal Ram poll* Explains That thi Pep? Can Do Nothing In tho Hatler. CHICAGO, April 27.-At the Methodist ministers meeting to-day Rvv. John Lee, chairman of the committee on religious liberty for Protestants in South America, read the following: The committee presents this morning Cardinal Kampolla's letter and Cardinal Gibbons' translation. The committee has deemed It wise to give a brief and qjear presentation of Its work from the beginning: The Chicago Methodist ministers meeting, April 2,1894, appointed a committee to Invite the pope's attention to the fact that "our Proteatsmt brethren In the republics of Peru, Ecuador, and ?-! J? Yil1t~ jBOjivm tauur uuucr uvi/tcoanc uimuu.ties that effect not only the profession of their faith and the public worship of God according: to the dictates of their conscience, but alio their civil and inalienable right to be legally married without being compelled to forswear their religious convictions, and to respectfully and earnestly request him to seoure for these Protestants "the same liberty of conscience that Is enjoyed by Roman Catholic citizens of this country." Two letters were written archbishop Ireland, each containing a stamped envelope addressed to the writer, asking him if he would tyive the goodness to bring this action 10 the notice of Cardinal Satolll, apostolic delegate of the pope to the United States. To none of these letters did Archbishop Ireland reply. A letter was addressed to Cardinal Satolll In Washington. To this the apostolic delegate did not reply. A second communication was sent to Cardinal Satolll, and In reply he said: "The enclosed copy of the encyclical letter of /??.? ta rh*r in. T think, the most fitting: reply I can moke." This r$ply not being satisfactory to the committee, It wus then decided to communicate directly with the pope himself. Two registered letters were sent to Leo XIII, one In August, 1894, and the other In the following December. To none of these letters did Pope Leo reply. April 22, 1895, a registered letter was addressed to Cardinal Gibbons In Baltimore. To this his eminence did "not reply. As soon as the committee learned that the Cardinal Archbishop of Baltimore had started for the eternal city a second registered letter was addressed to him In care of Pope Leo XIII. To this his eminence did reply. The Matter Referred. Cardinal Gibbons, in Rome, datecTJune 14, 1895, says that he has "referred the matter of the disabilities of Protestants in Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia to the cardinal seoretary of state." In this letter Cardinal Gibbons Incorporated a communication from the cardinal secretary of state. This communication, after observing "the letter written to your eminence oy jur. i^ee, oi Chicago, Iiaa reference to a state of thing* solely dependent upon the civil laws In force In the republics of Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia," states, "nevertheless, as your eminence has been pleased to communicate to me the said letter, I harf written to the apostolic delegate in the above named republics, to obtain precise information concerning the Jaws which affect the condition of Protestants there, as regards both the exercise of their religion and the celebration of marriages." and then gives the assurance that the cardinal secretary of state will "call the attention of the Holy See to the Information which the aforesaid delegate will send." Three registered letters have been sent from this city to Cardinal Rampolla, secretary of stato for Leo XIII, pleasantly reminding him of his promise, and Asking him If he would have the goodness to call the pope's attention to this important matter at the earliest point of time, and then communicate to the committee the decision reached. Communications from the mmtofflee authorities in the city of Rome, convey the Intelligence that these letters safely reached their destination. This Intlllgence from the postoffice authorities Is the only knowledge i that the committee has that these let* tern passed ino the hands of the papal secretary of slate. A few days later a letter arrived from the cardinal's sec- I retary. In which he said: Hla eminence begs to acknowledge your esteemed favor of November 14. In reply his emlnenoe desires me to say that up I to the preeent he has rcelved no fur- 1 ther information on the subject. The full correspondence ho has already , communicated to you In a previous letter. Since then he has received no word 1 on the subject from any one. Anything In future, Interesting to you, that he may receive, he win And great pleasure In communicating to you." Another letter gent. March 2, 1896, a third letter was addressed to Pope Leo XIII, on the eighty-sixth anniversary of hla birth, inviting his attention to the fact that the Chicago press has strongly endorsed the movement to secure religious liberty! for Protestants In South America; the words of strong encouragement concerning the wisdom of this movement. and the stern necessity of It, come from persons of International reputation, which greatly cheer the committee; that among these are poets. pniinninrupiBiB mm umnm, duiuui s, statesmen. and historians, and the leader of the Inrgest and most lnllu?ntlal organization of women. On the next day, March 3, the eighteenth anniversary of Pope I^eo's coronation, a roistered letter from Baltimore reache* Its destination. It contained two communications; one the long looked for letter from the papal secretary of state, and the other, the following letter from Cardinal Gibbons* secretary, the Itev. William A. Fletcher: "Cardinals residence, 408 North Charles street, Baltimore, Md? February 29, 18M. "To the Rev. Dr. John T^ee: Rev. Dear Sir:?In accordance with Instructions received from the cnrdlnal archbishop of Baltimore, } enclose a tranHcrlpt of Cardinal rtimpolla's letter relative to the matters brought to his attention by your request It was the original Intention to supply you with a translation of the document. Your address was not known to his eminence until the eve of his departure for New Orleans, and the matter was postponed to await his return. In the meantime. It ban occurred to I him that you would perhaps prefer to have tho words of the original. This copy haa been prepared accordingly, > Should you. In addlton, desire a translation. hl? eminence will be pleased to forward It to you. "VnLL^M^BXETCHER." A letter In reply ?u addressed to the Rev. Mr. Fletcher, statin* that the person to express In Snxllsh the exact shade of lhou*ht that the papal secretary of elate Intended to convey, was Cardinal Gibbon*, and that his orldnal Intention to aupply a translation of the document was a most exoellent one. A few weeks later the tranalatlon er rived. While tho committee wiu nun no comment!, Jt will state luH. In connection with Cardinal Rampolla's letter and Cardinal Gibbons' translation the committee Invite* attention to two things: Potnta X Inn L?Cardinal Rampolla's letter, dated Rome, November W, 1IM, la mailed to the committee from Baltimore, February 29, 1IM. Just the very day on the morning of which the newspapers of the world contained the Associated Press dispatch that the Peruvian government had ordered the preparation or a resolution which will be submitted to Concress, providing tor the registration of Protestant marriages. In view of the fact that the cardinal's secretary in his letter of November SI, IMS.writes "If his eminence desires to say anything In .future interesting to you, that he may receive, he will And great pleasure In communicating to you," the committee simply states that the sccond letter from Rome, written November 10, 1195, came Into the possession of the committee March S, UK, while the first letter from Rome, written June 14, 1895, ' * - *? onm. came ' iniu me ^unmaivu vt ?HU ?... mlttee June 29.1895. 2.?'The cardinal doea not translate all of "the document." In his translation he omits the date of the letter and' the place from which It was written. The omitted portions the committee encloses in brackets. Cardinal Gibbons, In the first letter, translated "signer" by the English word "mister" and In the second letter by the word "real reverend," though the cardinal bishop of Baltimore knows that the Italian word for "reverend" Is not "signer," but "reverend." The following Is Cardinal Gibbons' translation of the letter of the papal secretary of state: "No. 27.677. "ROME, November 30,1895. "To Cardinal James Gibbons, archbishop of Baltimore: "Most Rev. and Eminent Sir:?In consequence of previous Interviews held with your eminence ,1 wrote, of which fact you were Informed on the 12tb of June. 1195, to the apostolic delegate for the republics of Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador to obtain precise Information as to the legal status of Protestants there, regarding the free exercise of religious worship and the celebration of marriages. The (pontlficlal) representative of the Holy See promtly complied with my request; and now I am In a position to state that the Protestants in Peru, far " v-i__ In tha tr?Xk at. iruin vciub icsMiwKu ?. ?Hv .. v. _ erclse of their worship, are ratlw accorded a larger degree of toleration than Is compatible with a strict construction of the political constitution of these countries. This is evidenced by the fact that in Peru, especially In the cities of Lima and Callao, there are several Anglican and Methodist chapels, where weekly conferences are held. As to the solemnisation of marriages, the delegate Informs me that, whilst the -4MailCNfttaatf8Ktf?AM?Htf|e0ogntzes noother form (as valid) than that prescribed by the council or Trent, Protestants do. as a matter of fact, wed with religious ceremony In presence of their ministers, and civilly before the consuls and ambassadors of their respective countries. The same condition of things relative to marriage exists In Bolivia and Ecuador, where the exercise of religious worship Is regulate*} by special constitutional enactments with which,however. the holy see cannot Interfere. "Having In due time received from your eminence the representations of the Rev. John, i^ee, 1 aeem it opportune to communicate to you the results of my inquiries, so that* you may, according to your judgment* transmit them to the reverend gentleman. "I am pleased to renew to you the sense of profound reverence humbly kissing your hand, and I honor myslf, reaffirm myself. "Tour eminence's most humbled, devoted and true servant, "M. CARDINAL RAKPOLLA." . In conclusion the committee wishes to say: 1.?It Is indeed a sad spectacle In this enlightened age that .an Institution, claiming to be a morail and religious power in the world should refuse to lift a finger toward sweeping away what a Roman Catholic editor In this city terms "odious religious restrictions," and to which an aged English statesman applies the language horrible and revolting." 2.?It is sadder still that an effort should be made to cover up, explain away, or Justify the odious and horrible." 8AT0LLTB IIDB OF XT. Tha Papal Lrgata la Ula Country Has JTo JnrUdlctlon In tha flatter. I WASHINGTON. April 27.?"This matter Is entirely foreign to the functions of Cardinal Satolll," stated Rev. Dr. Rooker, private secretary to the papal representative, to-aay, wnen shown the correspondence between the Chicago Methodist ministers and the i Catholic authorities regarding restrictions on Protestants In Peru, Ecuador and; Bolivia. "Cardinal Satolll is here as the pontifical representative of the pope and has absolutely no cognizance ! of matters arising: out of his own juris-1 diction. The conditions pictured doubtless are perfectly true. Protestants In the strictly Catholic countries like these three doubtless stand on precisely the same basis as Catholics in the strictly Protestant countries. That Is a matter which rests solely with the respective governments. "Cardinal Satolll. it Is obvious, cannot Interfere. It would be a* much out of keeping with his office to do so, to even make any suggestions regarding affairs there, as for the apostolic delegate there accredited to those countries to interfere with matters arising In this country He has no right to make a suggestion or proposition of any kind In such a mottcf. These letters apparently have received all due courtesy. The cardinal secretary of state took prompt steps to secure Information: for this assertion, Cardinal Olbbons forwarded their communications nnd obliged them where possible and In at least one case they received a response from the papal abl??I .

I have no doubt some letters have been received here and have remained unanswered but thai, as In the case of letter* to others at the head of the Cathollo church, should not lie construed to mean a mallclotia Ignoring, but merely that the matter* to which they niated do not come within tht province of the proper peraon* addressed. Cardinal Hatolll has no special knowledge or nrqu.Hntance with the condition and constitution* In those countries and It would, therefore, for that reason alone, be manifestly Improper for hlra to Interfere." 4 WOMEN BARRED From Scott Jackson's Trlnl while Letters Arc Sesd.

Ten witneieee were examined, fifty-two up to the present time. Much time wa* devoted to debating by oouneel. Many queetloni dorins the day offered py the commonwealth were ruled out The number of. objection* by the befenee overruled wae too great to enumerate. Twice during the day the Jury were required to retire during debate. Vtyf the first time during the trial the court (art notice to women to retire became the letters of Will Wood to Scott Jack eon were not proper for them to hear, it has been tho policy of the prosecution to bring out the bloody garments ot tho dead girl every day slnoo the be'glanlg ot the trial, and to-day waa no exoeptlon. This being motion day, the court was delayed longer than usual before taking up the trial of Scott Jackson. The first witness called was Detective Crlm, who tee tilled to having seen tracks on the bank above where the body waa found. Seemed to have been mads by the rubbers which Pearl Bryan wore. He was present when Jackson and Walling were arrested, and was also present at the private examination held In the office of Chief Deltach. The defense argued that Crlm'l testimony concerning admissions or statements at thla Inquisition wss not competent until It waa shown that no threats or Inducements bad been employed before Jackson was brought into the court room. The oourt sustained tho objection ot the defendant's counsel. Crlm then told the story of the effort to overhear Jaokson and Walling talking together In a sensitive otll on the day they were brought from the Hamilton county Jail to Newport ? John L. Legner, saloon-keeper, testified that Jaokson left a vails* In his saloon Saturday night, Sunday night and Monday night. He Identified tho valise as the one which Jackaon had admitted had held the head of Pearl Bryan. The testimony ot several witnesses was to lire nun en iimca in wo uimu that have been already forged. Bach wu the case with the evidence of Mr. Leaner, at whose saloon the valise was hidden; of Ed GrlUo, the Commercial Gazette reporter, who saw a river bridge ticket found on Jackson when first arrested, callng for the passage of homeland vehicle. One lmportant^polnt "Well, old boy, you have played your part well" Of the now testimony there was that of Charles Rogers, night clerk of Helder'e hote?, that Walling came there ofter 3 o'clock on the mornlhg of February 1, with his clothes wringing wet and rushed to bed without registering. He had never before, or since itayed over night at the hotel. Harry Hays, of Orsencastle, Ind., testified that he sold the shoes to Pearl Bryan November 18, 1895. He described them as number 3, needle toe, diamond tip; the only pair of that kind that he had in the houee. He also described the old rubber* which she wore on that oocca* flion, which were not suited to that style or snoe, out naa an upon uw. iwa no did before the shoes were shown him. His statement corresuonds perfectly to the facts as shown when be Identified (he shoes. Lieutenant 8afTerans, of Fort Thorn* as, gave the most minute and Intelligent description of the Immediate surrounding* of the corpse, early after it waa found, that has yet been given. He nnd Detective McDermott ogre* in testifying to on imprint in the slope like that made by some one forced to flit down heavily. He testified to seeing tracks above the slope and to discovering a glove trodden In the ground, which has already been identified as Pearl Bryan's. The defense brought Will Wood on the stand to Interrogate about two vile lettera written by him to Scott Jackson February 1 and 3. Here is was that the women were required to retire. These letters are too ooarse and Indecent to be printed. The points of greatest Importano as beaitbg on the case in Will Wood's letter to Jackson waa In that dated Plymouth, Ind., February 1. were the following sentenoes: "Doo If you have let 4 ohance go by I'll give you pell;" also, "ir you nave grown coickcq* hearted, you ought to be shot" The rest of the letter wu made up ot Innuendoes and personal allusions Intelligible to the writer and Jackson, but riddles to all others. Wood was detained to give the defense opportunity to offer this testimony. THE COTELL CASK. It will be Considered by the Grand Jury dale Week. AKRON. O.. April 27.?The grand jury, which Is to consider the charge of murder made against Romulus Cotell, convened to-day. No one doubts thai the young man will bo Indicted for murder in the first degree, though he has repudiated the confession he made and says it wm wrung from him by the terrors of the sweat box. The only other evidence against him is the bnse ball bat and mask found after his confession. Officers are searching for the articles which were stolen on the night of the murder. They may provo valuable evidence. Efforts to have Cotell say where these things are are unsuccessful. Not i until late In May will Cotell's trial be gin.
