Assailing the '-open pulpit" legislation fl ihe Episcopal Church at the Rich? mond general convention last year, which permit* clergymen of other dt nomination* "< -peak from it* pulpit*, Rat, I?r. Wi.liam McOarvcy, ol Si Elizabeth*! Church, Philadelphia, with iu ihe last day or two ha* had distributed copii* of a pamphlet which baa as? tounded the Episcopal ministry in all part* of the country. In the pamplet, which bear* the titlr, "The Open Pulpit in the Episcopal Church," and which characterize* the legislation as "revolutionary" and "de? structive," the minor not only decries the law, but goes further, and without reaped to persons, pa*?e* scathing criti? cism upon tbe bishops of the church, "Ilie (mes most responsible," for their acquiescence iu the measure. According to bi* idea, the Episcopal Church of today is facing a situation the 'seriousness of which cannot be ex? aggerated." "Throughout the whole history of the Epiacopal Church,'' he writee, "never wa* there such a condition of altair* at now confront* us. Our supply of clergy is diminishing at an appalling rate, ami our intluence is waning in places where once il was Hirongest." In another place he nay* that the "open pulpit" will in the end mate the "high churchman who Mill preaches apostolic succevion the laughing stock nt both Protf atatil and Roman C.tthnlir? M a man lacking in login*! mm;" and again, that "it makes possible the sd mission to our pulpits of heretical minis? ters as teachers ni soul*." In conclusion Dr. MtOarvey -ays: "Of coursp, the person* who will be sought for, and for whom this clause of the canon was specially framed, are the min kiera of the various Protestant bodies. Noa who are these ministers ' They are ministers of sects whose very existence whs the result of the rejection of tbe teaching and authority of the church to which we belong, ?eets which deny what we hitherto, if no longer, have regarded aa fundamentally essential to the integ? rity of the gospel. "A Unitarian minister, the avowed blasphemer of the divinity of the Son of God, may, under this canon, be legally invited into our pulpit*. "And what will a Protestant minister teach' Anything be pleases. Thec*non places no restrictions upon him, *o that one of our congregations may have in turn the Baptist minister explaining the foolisher* ol infant baptism, the Pres? byter'!' o 'f niiir suming the novelty of episcopacy, the quaker showing the uselessness of all sacraments, the Uni? tarian emptying the Scriptures of all witnra* to the divinity of Christ and ti:e I'oiversalist comforting the bewild? ered Episcopalian with tbe assurance that, however great may be bis confu? sion now, be ha* at least nothing to fear beyond the grave. "We certainly could not expect they would be so lacking in self respect as for the time to divest thens-Ive* of de? nominational office and pniciples and to play the part of Bpiaei ptliaa clergy? men.''
