THE south rn assembly in
Organic Union, However, Can Not be
Accomplished at This Time —Dr
Giradeau of South Carolina Strongly
Opposed the otlon to Co-Operate—
He Predicts a Split.
Chattanooga, May 23.—The Southern
Presbyterian Assembly was called to order
at 9 o’clock this morning. Elder J. A.
Euslee submitted the report of the auditing
committee, which declared that the ac
counts of the treasurer of the assembly and
of the treasurer of the board of trustees
of the assembly wore correct. The rep rt
with reluctance advised the acceptance
of the resignation of Hon. James
Hemphill, for twenty-one years a mem
ber of the board of trustees, and
recommended that t. ustees John L. Brown
and J hn E. Grown be re-elected trustee ;
that Dr J. R. Sh arer, president of Davison
college, succeed Rev. J. Y. Fair on the
board, and that James Patton E win and
Gen. Rufus A. Barringe of Charlotte, N.
C., be elected new members of the board.
The report was adopted.
The committee on systematic beneficence
reported t .at the collection last yea
amounted to #354,405.
Ti e committee on Sabbath observance
reco mended tiiat the assembly indorse a
petition to change the day of inauguratio .
to the firs Wednes lay n March o the last
Wednesday in A ril ad to prohib .t worx
on the Sabbate ; and that the ns ernnly re
quest the office -and members of the
chu cli to rel'rai l from all travel on Sn -
day except in cases of necessity and mercy.
The report w s docketed.
The question of co-operation with the
norther church was called. The special
committee which had been appointed to
consider the r 'port of the j int conference
committee submitted a majority rep irt
favoring the adop.ion of the conference
committee’s recommendation to c .-operate
ni dtbe ini ori y rep rt opposi g it. The
former was signed by nine members of the
special committee, and the .alter by two.
Rev. S. M. Wilson of Missouri made a talk
in support of tne ninority report, of which
he was tne originator.
Dr. J. H. Wilson, stated clerk of the
assembly and chairman of the joint confer
ence committee, advocated the adoption of
the joint re; ort. The question is coilisio .
or co-operation, he said, and the latter i
natural and preferable. Some of our north
ern brethren say that nothing less t lan
organic union will satisfy them. 1 submit
the statement, “if we can’t co-operate we
can’t unite. If we can’t court we can’t
marry! Is not our southern bride handsome
enough? J think she is, hut lam at raid she
is not ready yet.”
The entire afternoon session was devoted
to di-cus ion of this matter, each member
being allowed five minutes’time. Not all
the members spoke, bu the sentiment is
overwhelmingly in upport of co-operation.
A report recouime ding organic union
would, however, fail.
The position of those who made speeches
during the afternoon are in Heated as fol
lows; Svnod of Alabama. 4 for c "opera
tion; synod of Ark . ns.xs, 5 forco- Deration ;
synod of Georgia, 8 for co-operation; syn and
of Ke tucky, 10 for co-operation ad 3
agains; it; synod of Memphis, 0 for co
opei ation and 2 against it; synod of Mis
sissippi, 8 for co-operati >n and 1 against it;
s}tin iof Missou i, 8 forei-operation; sy <4
of Nashville, 8 for co-operation; syn. 4 of
Nort Carolina, 0 for co-operation and 2
against ii; synod of South Carolina, 4 for
co-operation and 5 against it.
One of the stronge-t protests made
against the motion was made by Dr. J. L.
Girardeau o South Carolina. The adop
tion of ire report to co-operate, said he,
was a step to organic union. If so the
question is whether tne assembly will
sacrifice the union of the southern Pie by
tcsrian church for a union with the norther i
church. “I think I represent the people of
mv section in 8 utn Carolina when I say
that if the church adop s any measure
tending to uni in of the whites and blacks
in the chi.rob or state, many of the Presby
terians will leave that denomination and
seek others.”
The assembly until a late hour to-night
discussed the matter of co-operation with
the northern c u oh. Bhort speeches were
) le by fur delegates from tne synod of
8 uth Georgia and Florida, two advocating
and twi. opposing the report, .-even dele
g.i’“s from the synod of Texas
s i oko in support of co-operation and
six against it. Eleven delegates from the
s . r.id i.f Virginia advocated the report
and seven oppo-ed it. Whei#uvery one h and
neon given an opportunity to speak a vote
on the question was taken by ayes
dm. n ys, and recorded. Ni ,ety-niue votes
were cast in favor of co-operation as pro
v : led fur in the report of the joint eommit
b* •ot conference between th ■ two as eiu
‘ “f‘s. Seventy.seven votes were cast in op

assembly then adjourned.

that part of tne report under discu sion
bound t em to too ciose ties with the sou h.
Dr. C. L. Thompson said it would b 1 an
economy of men and means if the report
was a iopted. He, would have preferred
that Judge Breckinridge had declined to
serve ou the committee rather than try to
antagonize'its work. “W..ud it not be
better if we are g ing to get mar, ied to the
southern church ii tne near future to trv
this form f co-operation first and see how
we’ll get along?” asked Dr. Thompson.
Messrs. Curry and Fulton opposed the
resolutions. The part which thev "ere
most opposed to was the recommend tio i:
“Wh ro there are weak chu ches w hich,
standi > alone, cann t support a minister,
but wiiich can be grouped wi h churches
c unectsd with ot or assemblies so as to
form tie mi isterial charge, the pr, sby te
rias having jurisd.ction are advised to
a low such churches to be grouped u ider a
minister from either body to whom their
respective presbyteries are willing to give
the n in charge.”
Rev. Dr. Crosby, supported the majo ity
report. “One of the grounds of c miplaint
agains it,” he sai l, “is that the n >rther,i
church has more money than the sou;hern
churc i and that, th refore, the southern
church w ul 1 reap a greater advantage by

Dr. William C. Young, who is not a

The Fire Came at Midnight While All
Were Aaleep - A Belief That it
Started From a Kitchen Stove—A
Son Might Have Saved Lives but He
Thought All Had Escaped.
Norfolk, Va., May 23.—The residence
Of T. C. Clarke, near Virginia Beach, in
