Ridings, receiver, vs. Boweu's Cbapel congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church etal., tried here, two weeks ago at a special terra of the chancery court, Judge Stout sent his decision to Clerk and Master J. Ben Fuqua a day Or so ago. The deci sion is as follows: "I find that the funds in controversy belong to Bowen Chapel congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterians. The caso of Landreth vs. Hudgins is con elusive of this case. Following that case I hold that there was no such un ion of the two churches as would carry into the, united church,. the property held under the deed from Bowen and wife. In the case referred to the su preme cnrt held that the action of the church judicatories , did not carry the body of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church into thc Presbyterian Church of the U. S. A. I bold that the action taken by the session at Bowen 's Chapel did not take the congregation at that place into the union. As long as there is a body of worshippers at Bowen 's Chapel submitting themselves to the government of the Cumberland Presby terian Church, and conforming to its faith and practices, such congregation will remain the beneficiaries of the fund in coutroversy, and all the funds arising from the rents and profits of the land conveyed by Bowen and wife to the ruling elders of that congregation, and nothing that a majority have done or may do can work an estopel. "The Presbyterian Cnurch, U. S. A. has no interest in said fund. The Cum berland University has no interest in the fund and only a contingent in the land. Section 2502 of Shannon's code does not, apply, because the conveyance from Bowen and wife was not for either of the purposes specified therein. "The fund will be decreed to the rul ing elders of the Cumberland Presbyte rian congregation at Bowen 'a Chapel and their successors in office as trustees for the use and purpose set out in the deed. "The Cumberland University will pay the cost incidental to making it a party to this suit and all the costs ac cruing at this instance. All the other costs not heretofore adjudicated will be paid by the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America. All ques tions not expressly passed on in the foregoing are decided against the party making such questions.
