DIVIDED AT LAST.
The Broadway Presbyterian
Church and the Central Pres
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
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.

THE CONFEDERATE HOME.
A Talk With Captain It. P.
Archer, concerning the
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
Tlse Attsemby Mall.
