Cumberland Presbyterians Get Them for Legal Battle. Bentonville, Ark., May 22. As a result of pledges made to-day a fund in excess of $10,000 will be at the disposal of the Legal Board of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, with which to fight court battles in connection with the contention of the Presbyterian Church of the United States that the property of the Cumberland Church should go with those members, the majority of whom amalgamated with the latter organization several years ago. Of the amount more than half came in individual subscriptions. The contri butions range from one of $500 from F. E. Allen, of Kichardson, Tex., to the $5 mite. The amount raised to-day is exclusive of that already in hand for specified litigation. AFFECTING INCIDENTS. Contrary to expectations, the discus sion of the property question to-day be fore the General Assembly was brief, beginning and ending with one address by Rev. J. L. Hudgins, of Union City, Tenn., who appealed for the required funds. Before the noon recess two thirds of the amount was secured and to-night as much more was pledged, bringing the total in excess of amount asked for. While the greater part of the responses were for small amounts, $50 or less, the large number respond ing made up the total. One aged man past 82 years and "poor as a church mouse," it was announced, was assisted to his feet that he might pledge $25. The other extreme was reached when a little girl, not yet in her teens, pledged her $5. Several Indians in attendance contributed, one with a check for $100. MIGHTILY STIRRED. An incident in the recording of pledges which brought the assembly to its feet and transferred a staid assem blage into a cheering crowd was the reading of a dispatch from Judge W. C. Caldwell, general counsel of the Legal Board, which announced that the Fed eral Court in Tennessee had refused to take jurisdiction in several cases m which valuable property was the issue The cheering continued after several moments, though the contributions continued and with faster regularity. This afternoon was given over to the deliberations of the several committees To-night a public meeting in the interest of the Board of Ministerial Relief was held. woman's hoard. The Woman's Board of Missions con tinued the business session of their twenty-ninth annual meeting this after noon.

In the United States Court yesterday morning Judge McCall dismissed the suit of Robert P. Stewart and others against W. W. Mitchell and others, up on the ground that he had no jurisdic tion in the matter. The suit was filed by non-resident members of the Pres terian Church, U. S. A., at Greenfield, Tenn., in which it was sought to enjoin members of the Cumberland Presbyte rian Church at that place from interfer ing with possession of property valued at $17,000. For the same reason's Judge McCall also dismissed the suit of C. M. Ross and other non-resident members of the Presbyterian Church, U. S. A., at Sa vannah, against Robert Hurst and other members of the Cumberland Presbyte rian Church at that place. The court held that since the interests of the non-resident members of the church as plaintiffs were evidently iden tical with one set of defendants within the State, the federal court should not assume jurisdiction, and the case was a proper matter for the State Courts to decide. He accordingly denied the in junctions asked in both cases and order ed them dismissed. The filing of both, suits last month followed a decision of the Tennessee Su preme Court, by which it was held the union of Presbyterian Church with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, in May, 1906, was invalid. Cumlxnland members, at that time opposed to the union, asserted they would take steps to gain possession of church property oc cupied by the unionists. The suits were intended to forestall such a move on the part of the Cumberland forces. The absence of attorneys caused the indefinite postponement of arguments in the Court Avenue Presbyterian Church suit, in the United States Court this morning. The suit was filed re cently by the Court Avenue Presbyte rian church, U. S. A., of Kentucky, against the First Cumberland Presbyte rian Church of Memphis, and others, , and sought to restrain the defendants from interfering with the plaintiff 's pos session of the church property. The filing of the suit followed the in corporation of the Court Avenue Church under the laws of Kentucky. Satur day's News-Scimitar.
