IS BEEUSEB RECOGNITION BY PUBTY LUDERS Not Slightest Chance for Any Sort of Wilson Instructions. BOTH SENATORS ARE AGAINST HIM Delegation From Virginia to Bal? timore Convention Certain to Be Uninstructcd?Support? ers of New Jersey Gov? ernor Will Wage T7ight Against Machine. BY AMiXA.VDKR FORWARD. Norfolk. Va.. May 21.?There la not the slightest chance for any sort of Woodrow Wilson instructions, or of resolutions declaring him to ho the first choico of the Democrat's of Vjr gin'a, according to those party leud ers already hero to attend the state Democrat c Convention. An unhmtruct erl delegation to the Haiti more meet? ing, with the usual appllc-itJon of the unit rule, will almost certainly ho tho I esult. For six teen years Richard Evelyn Hyrd has met the enemies of Senator Thomas Slaplen Martin at th" castle Kate, an! hasn't waited for them to attack the. stronghold Itself. |n sea? t-on and out of season he has champ? ioned the cause of the senior Senator to a degree that has not only resulted In Identifying him In the public mind n? a leader in Hie councils of the machine, but has in addition placed him <-lose to the throttle, of the aforesaid mechanism as nun of tho nig Four." Vet when the time l.asj come for Speaker Hyrd to claim some? thing as a result of his leadership of a eaut-e, ho In denied the privilege of achievement, lie has undertaken to secure a WoOdroW Wilson delegation to tin- National Democratic Convention from Hie State of the New Jersey Gov? ernor^ birth and he won't get tt. II? rd Ik DUnpixilntrd. Mr. Byrd doesn't like this. Me feels that he is entitled to recognition at tills time to the extent of permission to put Iiis plans across. He believes that tin- majority of the Democrats of Virginia favpr the nomination . of Governor Wilson, and ne has said that '':?:? is no valid reason i- this June lur< why the majority should not be allowed to instruct the votes of this State In the national party councils in any way It sees fit. Senator Martin and Senator Swan SOn are sort*')' that the Speakers has sssumc/d a position wherein, he does not work in harmony wish their own views. But their grief la not suffi? ciently Intense to permit of agreement with Kit mood. Kcpreseutatlve C. C. Carlln early in the present year started a boom for a delegation from Virginia Instructed for Senator Martin himself. Mr. Car? ito looked upon it as a gamble, with n lighting chance for any eligible parly man who had some delegates t>t back hlth. it .- altogether probable ii..it Senatoi Martin, like anybody else, would accept the presidential nomina? tion If tendered him. but recently lie has discouraged tho proposition to in? struct for him and will be aatlstled with a resolution indorsing his course in Congress. The argument Is that n delegation bound to no man might be able to control the nomination of a President In the Baltimore convention, where a two-thirds vote la necessary. Thus the party leaders in Virginia might de? liver the vole of the State to an>" candidate whose manage] s saw lit to promise something in case of his nom? ination and election. in vain has Speaker Byrd protested against the propostton of putting into the hands of three or four men tile \ ote of Vlrgilna Democrats to he de? livered a* they see ill. lie haa Bald that there Is no reason why the dele? gation should not be Instructed for Wilson, fr at least be given a remnd er by resolution that the tlrst choise of the Democrats of Virginia is for him. Naturally, th's would have the force and effect of an Instruction, since no delegate Is likely to overlook such an expression of opinion from his State i (invention as long as Governor Wil? son's name is befofo the meeting. Wherefore the parly leaders don't want ft resolution. Ulli Contlmi" fight. Wilson men already here say that the cause will not be abandoned with? out a tight. They say that speeches will be made, in the convention which opens on Thursday which will rattle tho dry bones In Virginia politics. They say that the machine is drunk with power and success, and seeks to take ai btep which will mean Its disintegra? tion. They say that the overturning of Speaker Byrd'S plans will mean a parting of the: ways let ween the dis? tinguished Winchester man and the political friends to whom ho has been so long united. They say that a breach will even be made, politically speaking, between Mr. Byrd and his brother-in-law, licpresontatlve Ii. D. Flood; But when all Is said and done, an unlhstrueted delegation will be efectcd to the 'Baltimore convention without any expression of Wilson sentiment. And If Speaker Byrd does not like It, he can put his pride and his opinions In his pocket, or In hl3 pipe. The deleKates-at-lartv to the Bait more meeting, according to the slate, will be Senators Martin and Swanson, Governor Mann and Iteprcsentatlvu riood. J. Taylor Ellyson will be re elected State chairman for a term of four years, probably w'thout opposi? tion. There will be strong fights among delegations for district delegates. In some cases, however, these have prac? tically been settled. For Instance, it seeniB to be understood that If. M. ?mlth, dr., of Richmond, and C. B.

He advises Plattlern to make the necessary prep? arations for lighting tiio worm and begin operations at the earliest pos? sible mpment. The Invasion last sea? son extended as far north as Canada and did considerable damage, not only to cotton, but to fru'ts in the North. Investigation baa developed that all tho cotton worm moths In Ihe TJnlted States were destroyed by the. abnormal cold la?t winter. "Our conclusion," says Or.. Hunter. "Is that the only fear of an out? break Is In a r<-lnvaslon from Central and South America. There 'a one fa':i which seems to Indicate that ther? may possibly he such a relnvaalon. The chronology of the outbreak shows a distinct tendency t/.ward the re CUrroncO of a series of two or three seasons of nbundar.ee.

The uiiijority. headed by Senator billing ham, of Mqrmont. chairman it the committee, stood, by the .Senate's pre? vious judgment In favor of I>orlmer, declaring that no vote had been se? cured for him by bribery. The minority contended that at least ten votes for him In the Illinois Legislature were corrupt, scored Edward nines, of >.'ni cago, and attacked the majority's sup? port of the plea of res adjudlcata, say? ing that it was inconceivable that the majority members, -all of them dis? tinguished lawyers.'' would have pro? ceeded with the Investigation without right of jurisdiction.''

REPORT REFERRED FO PRESBYTERIES Substitute for' 'Elect In? fant Clause" Is Adopted. MATTER CAUSES SPIRITED DEBATE Argument Is Made for State? ment Which Will Reveal Teaching Church Without Necessity for Explanation. Decision Be Made at Next Assembly. [Special to The Times.Dispatch. J J r.rlstol, May 21.?After upending more than two hours of the morning ! session and one hour of the afternoon j In the discussion ?I the "elect Infant I cause" of the Confession . r 1-alth. the General Assembly of the Southern I Presbyterian Church by a, decided j majority vote, adopted the amended re? port of the committee on bills and overtures, reference to the over? tures touching that clause. The clause known as the "elect Infant clause" j as It now reads In the Confession of ! Faith Is as follows: "Klect infants I dying In infancy are regenerated and ?aved by ?'brist through the Spirit, who workcth when and where and how He pi ease th. .So also are all other elect persons who are Incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the word."?Chapter x. Section 3. The recommendation of the commit? tee as to this clause would make It road. "'Being elect. Infants dying In Infancy are regenerated and saved by Christ through the Spirit's," etc. The am< ndment- to the recommenda? tion of the report provided for the In? sertion of the word "all" between j the words "elect" and infants." raus I ing this section to read as follows: "Being elect, all Infants dying In i infancy are regenerated and saved by Christ through the Spirit, who workcth when and where an*d how He pleascth. So also are all other elect persons who are Incapable of being outwardly called by the ministry of the word." lleport Is 'taken Up. The report of the committee on bills and overtures was taken up this morning under the head of unfinished business. When he had read the re? commendation of the report concerning the elect infant clause. Rev. U. A. Webb, chairman of the committee, an noum ed that this recommendation wus I intended to convey the assurance that infants are saved because they are the objects of God's elective love, because j they are objects of Christ's atoning love, and because they are objects of ' the Spirit's regenerating power: that | bahles are beneficiaries of the love of i the Father; of the atonement ot Jesus, and of the regeneration of the Spirit. The minority report submitted by Rev. I. s. MclSlroy did not differ from the statement now In the Confession of Faith, except that it contained this explanatory note: "But this statement Is not Intended to teach that Infants or any others Incapable of being outwardly moved are lost." When the vote was taken on the minority report It was lost. Several substitutes for the original report were offered and were lost. Rev. B. M. Munroe argued for a statement In this connection whicti would reveal the teaching of the church without necessity for explanation. Rev. S. F. Tenney said that the pres? ent expression In the Confession of Faith would be a horrible doctrine If the church believed It. but that the church does not believe. It. Rev. J. J. Chisholm used- a black? board Illustration to show the distinc? tion between elect and nonelect adults and between lect and nonelect in? fants. In this connection he said: "All who *re saved were elected to be saved. No man can he elect who was not an elect Infant. All Infants who arc saved must he elect Infants. No elect infant can pass Into manhood and not be saved." Opposed to Change. Rev. R. C. Reed said t ?at he was opposed to tho proposed change in the article under consideration, because he was unwilling to surrender his con vlctlons of Prestoyterlanlsttv He said further, "I wish the Westminster as? semble had said nothing about elect Infants. I don't believe th? Word ot Go/1 says anything about It. However, the fathers did not find anything to warrant them In saying all infants are saved, and I am opposed to a change in bur creed." Rev. ,T. J. Gray said he was not ashamed and not afraid of the doctrines of the Presbyterian Church. Rev. F. M. Woods opposed the proposed change and said he did not want the assembly to "show the white feather" In tills I matter, and that he believed in the sal i vatlon of infants and believed God's word warranted It. Dr. Reed made a suggestion that the whole matter be referred to the com? mittee appointed to write the popular statement of the doctrine , of tin church. It. v. .1. I. Vance said: "This matter would be a comedy if II were nbl such a tragedy." Ha then proposed the in ; sertlon of the word "all" between the I words "elect" and "Infants" in the I recommendation of the committee in i the majority report. Datei- this SUg i gisllon of Dr. Vance vv:iS offered by I Rev. E. T. Wollford In the form of an I amendment, and the report as amended was adopted. I This report will be ?-ein down to the presbyteries for advice and con?.;it. i snd It will reeiulre the consent of three fourths of the presbyteries for tho change to become effective. The an? swer of the presbyteries will be sent to the assembly of n*vxt year. Another Important recommendation of the committee on bills and overtures was that which says that the duty of I the permanent committee of systematic I bonef|cence shall be- to plan and stimu? late the benevolence of the church, but hereafter it shall not be the preroga? tive of the committee to nominale scc j retarles and members of the executive1 ' (Continued on Ninth Page.)
