REV. IMS ffILL
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
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.
