DAILY E8TABLI8HEU 1878. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, TUESDAY, MAY 31, 1904. ONE GENT A COPY. REV. IMS ffILL LEAVE MEBROPE AS DELEGATE TO P. A. CONVEN TION AT LIVERPOOL HE i LEAVES TONIGHT. PLANS FOR JOURNEY "Will Visit in Ireland for a While and Will Tour the Continent Gone Two Months. Rev. S. R. Lyons, pastor of the United Presbyterian church of this city, will be sent by his congrega tion to Liverpool, England, as a dele gate to the Presbyterian Alliance con vention, which meets in that city June 28. Rev. Lyons leaves this ev .ening on No. 26, at 8:45 p. m. for Philadelphia, from which port he will sail for England at 1 o'clock on the afternoon of June 4. The steamei that he has chosen is the Haverford a vessel that is very popular with tourists, but which is slower than the fast Cunard liners, as it takes ten lavs for the trio. When Dr. Lyon arrives at Liverpool, his first s' p he will sail as soon as possible for Belfast, Ireland. From Belfast he will go to Newry, a town neai there, where he will spend a week af the guest of his cousin, Rev. S. A. Lyons. Another thing takes him to Ireland, though, beyond the fact of his desire to see his cousin. He wishes to make an effort to locate if possible the old home of his grand father, which is somewhere to the north of Belfast a few miles. On the 27th he will return to Liver pool in order to be present at the opening of the Presbyterian Alliance convention. This convention meets only every seven years and delegates are present from all over the world. - The body is more of an advisory one than a law making one, ana raiuui than making laws it does more m the line of discussion as to what law would be the best, or what are the most needed. Thus although it ban no power to make laws and nevr does make them, most of the policies of the church and the latest move ments all originate at this convention. Rev. Lyons has not definitely decided as to what he will do after the con vention, but thinks it possible arid even probable that he will visit Lon don and other parts of England and make a short tour of the Continen' especially "doing" Paris and French cities. Tie will probably return tr: this country early in August, leavins Liverpool some time late in July. Rev. T. D. TTanna, who -was the pas tor of the Monmouth, 11., United Presyterian church during the year that Dr. Lyons was president of Mon mouth college, will act as pastor of the local church.
