The Broadway Presbyterian Church and the Central Pres byterian Church. The Kansas City Presbytery which is in session at Nevada. Mo., held an important session at Nevada yesterday and among other thing3 the committee on the Sedalia church division and reorganization of a new church here, made their report which wTas adopted, granting the petitioners for a new church authority to organize the Cen tral Presbyterian church in this city, which brings aboutan amicable settle ment of the trouble in the Broadway church. The report of the committee ap pointed to examine into the question referred to, showed that the petition ers presented a subscription ol $1,200 toward the building of a new cnurch ; that the parties agreed to a division of the church property, hence the committee recommended the Broad way Presbyterian church of Sedalia should be divided nito two churches, one to be known as the Broadway Presbyterian church and the other the Central Presbyterian church of Seda lia. The Central church is given one veur to comnlv with all the conditions I agreed upon in the contract between themselves and the Uroaaway church. The report was signed by Geo. P. Hivs, chairman ; James Edmonson, J. H. Miller and Ales Walker. This will probably settle the trouble which for sometime has existed in the Broadway Presbyterian ehufeh and restore the old lime peace "which for years brooded over the two churches before they united.

A Talk With Captain It. P. Archer, concerning the Project. Chairman B.P. Archer, of the ex ecutive committee of the Ex-Confederate Historical and Benevolent associ ation of Pettis county, has called a meeting of his committee at 8 o'clock to-night, at Capt. Bonnei's hotel office. "The object of the meeting," said Capt. Archer, "is to decide upon some plan that may assist the state organization in raising a fund to build a home for the aged and indigent ex confederates oT this state. "Of course, I would, as would many other Scdaliaus like to have the home located here, but we feel that we should contribute our little mite for the support of a home wherever it may be located. Do you know ?" said the captain, "that many counties of the state are bidding for the home? Lafayette county, for instance, has offered 810.000 to have it located within her borders, and it is not at all surprising when we contemplate the magnitude of the proposition which will necessarily require about 50,000 to commence with and as a matter of course five times that amount will be expended Before the home is completed. "Do you know that the Grand Army men of Sedalia have given me great encour agement by their proffers of money to assist in building the home ? Geo graphically we have the advantage over any other county in the state, but location alone will not capture the prize, money or property dona tions will be necessary ana 1 oeneve that Sedalians would respond liberally if they thoroughly understood the magnitude of the project. The press of Sedalia has ceitainly been very generous in giving to the public every thing pertaining to this new enter prise. Tlse Attsemby Mall.
