We have not the full pro- ceedings of the meeting before us but we have seen enough to make it clear to our minds that this question will not be settled by suppressing discussion or by the Hoard standing firmly on its old foundation. On Thursday there were two long sessions and the time was fill ed with debate, in which personalities and insinuations bore a prominent part. ' At the election of officers for the com ing year there was a good deal of com- j motion. The policy of the Board was Frank I'cttigrew, one of the newly elected Senator from South Dakota is a Vermonter. He used to be so poor that he was compelled to walk long dis tances to tave his fare. His is the old : derstnnd it. familiar story, a struggle through pov- i enlightenment among the people as is ertyto greatness.

Among these are Dr. Farrar of Albany, N. Y., and Mr. and Mrs. Ostranderof Hrooklyn. The fortieth annual meeting of the State Teacher's Association will be held in St. Albans this week. W. II.

The A. B. C. F. M. has been hold ing its annual meeting in New York city. Things have not been harmon ious in that body for a number of years but it was hoped that certain questions had been laid at rest at previous annu al meetings, and if we remember cor rectly they were not raised at the last meeting. Hut it is evident that the old issues are not dead, they have only been slumbering. At the recent meet- em! by the presiding officer, Dr. Slorrs who reduced to writing and put a mo tion wliich the progressives had tried to carry all day, to the effect that there be an investigation of the management of the affairs of the Board as related to charges brought against the Secretary and some of the prudential committee. 1 he old officers were re-elected and a resolution was adopted appointing a committee of nine to inquire into the methods of administration pursued at the missionary rooms and to recom mend any changes that shall seem to them needful aud imiortant. This coin mittee was not appointed nt the time of the passage of the resolution. Upon its character will depend the worth of the investigation. There were numer ous earnest pleas for harmony in view of the attitude and expectations of the churches. It is not easy to say how- large a proportion of the churches that do their mission work through the Am. Board are in sympathy with its meth ods or how many are opposed to it. It is to be hoped that the committee just appointed w ill do thorough work and when it reports some action be taken that will stand, ..The Home Seeretarv ings Banks might be involved.

It may not always yield as large an income but the own ers can keep track of it a little better. These failures are saddening for those who suffer, but the world is full of men who promise beyond their depth. The atwfiiittal of Mr. luiuan who was recently tried for murder at the Kut land county-court, was quite a surprise to some peqple. There was no doubt about the killing, but the plea of self- de.fenoe wits thought to be lamely sus-i tained. Iuman shot Sennot, a neigh bor, whose cattle paid no respect to di vision Lines. There was much auiioy-' ance on account of this and bitter feel ings had grown out of it. But if every man whose neighbor's cattle annoy him is to be allowed to shoot that neighbor there will soon be a thinning out of the rural population.

Some of the members of the IVudential Committee are in a grecinent with him, others are not. In Boston ant! vicinity, whence comes con-siih-rable of the suport of the Board, the pastors of most of the Congregation al churclics are very restive under the policy of the Secretary. It seems that Dr. Aldun manages the Board, so far as the appointment of missionaries is couecrned, pretty much after his own heart. It is charged that all applicants for service in the foreign field are sub jected to a doctrinal test, and that if they cannot answer certain questions to the satisfaction of the Home Secretary, they are set aside. These questions have reference to a future probation It is charged that some young men of excellent qualifications and training, supposed to be tainted with the future probation heresy, are summarily reject ed, and that the result is to impede the mission work of the Board, and to al ienate many of iis friends and thereby limit it resources. These are weiirhtv matters .o far as the lioard is concern ed whatever may be the interest of the general public. This matter pressed to the front at the recent meeting. It is safe to say that it caued some unpleas antness, strengthened a determination to bring about some change at the room of the mission in Boston, even if it be necessary to remove Secretary Alden The Independent stands firmly by the policy of the Board. It declares that the Board has planted itself upon a firm foundation. "Its present duty is to stand immovably thereupon, no matter from what quarter or in what gtdse as sault may come. Let it be understood once more, once and for all, the settle ment at Springfield shall not be re-opened or unsettled." This was written just before the recent meeting. The rectly but we cannot help thinking that he stands in alxnit the right position, and that his policy, if changed at all, should be changed at the substantially unanimous request of the churches that sustain the Board. Our eves may be holden that we cannot see, but it cer tainly is not clear to us that there is really much use in doing mission work among the heathen if after all they are in no secial danger. If the progress ives wish to carry on mission work on their basis let them organize a society of their own and teach their, peculiar doctrines after their own manier. interesting veterans. The W. R.
