[Special to the Newark'Star ] ATLANTIC CITY, May 19.—The most Important business of the opening ses sion is over and I3r. John F. Carson has been elected to the moderatorship for this 123d assembly. For the time being the assembly was stirred -to a high pitch of excitement. Every speech in favor of the nominee was deeply earnest and strongly appealing. At the mentioning of the name of Dr.iCarson, of Brooklyn, at the lirst norJinee, by Dr. S. K. Palmer, of Co lumbus, O., tile assembly broke out with a mighty applause, and throughout the speech there was a general applause until its conclusion, when for several minutes the assembly refused to answer the call for order by the chair. All tfie appeals to sectionalism or lack of fair dealings were lost by the action of the assembly. The Rev. Dr. Joseph L. Neaver nomi nated the "Tall Pine of the Sierra." the Rev Dr. -I. A Matthews, of Seattle, and appealed strongly lor the recogni tion of the great Northwest, which has nut been recognized in the election of a moderator since the election of Dr. Sheldon Jackson, of Alaska. Dr. Nearer said, in answer to Dr. Palmer, that the danger to the United States was not the Roman ci.urch or the Jew. but the Mormon church, which was the greatest menace to the States. (Great Applause ) Dr. W. Francis Irwin,, of Kentucky, made a great speech ift favor of the Rev. Dr. F. \V. Hinitt, the president of Centre College, Kentucky. Dr. Ir win was wrought up by a question of a commissioner, who asked him how many votes he had for his nominee. He said it is an insult, to the dignity of the Presbyterian church to campaign for the office of moderator. "My can didate is the only one who has not a photo In his inside pocket.” Nearly every speaker took a hit at the publicity campaign of Seattle Pres bytery in the interest of Dr. Mat thews. Dr. Davie, of Philadelphia, made one of the most careful and strongest speeches in favor of Dr. John Dixon. The voting was as follows: First Ballot—Dr. Carson. 347; Dr. Matthews. 219; Dr. Hinitt, 139; Dr. Dixon, 97. Second Ballot Dr. Carson, 454; Dr. Matthews, 318; Dr. Hinitt, 1'J. Votes, 798; necessary. 400. There is a feling of general satisfac tion in the election of Dr. Carson. Dr. Palmer, who presented the name of Dr. Carson, escorted the newly elect ed moderator to the chair. GAVEL, EMBLEM, EFFORTJS GIVEN Rev. Dr. Carson. New Moderator,; Recipient of “Trophy” of His Election. EACH OF ITS SIX PORTIONS SYMPOLIZES CHURCH WORK Eight Hundred Commissioners at Assembly Consider Church Unity. « * BY REV. A. N. STUBBLEBINE. ' ATLANTIC CITY, May 19.—The Pres byterian general assembly, having or- j ganized yesterday by the election of the j Rev. Dr. John F. Carson, of Brooklyn, ! as moderator, the 800 commissioners ; were ready for business following the devotional exercises, which opened the j second day's session. Among the affairs to be disposed of during the day ; is the consideration of reports from j special committees. Among these reports was that of the : committee on Christian life and work. | The report stated thaj the presbyteries ! have very generally given attention to the recommendation of the last astern - | bly that they appoint committees on j Interchurch federation or empower ex isting committees to attend to the mat ter of the relationship of the Evangeli cal churches one to another. About two-thirds of the presbyteries and syn- I ods have acted In tills matter, the re- ' port said: The report called attention to an in vestigation made by the secretary of the committee, which shows through the country, as a whole, the total num ber of non-church members Is 60.9 per cent. It was also set forth In the re port that the number of vacant Presby terjan churches has Increased as be tween 1909 and 1910, from 1.S86 to 2.167. Analslnnl Clerks Appointed. The assembly convened at 9 o'clo-k with devotional services led by the Rev. Dr, George William Knox, of New York. The assistant clerks as fol lows were appointed: The Rev. Dr. W. P. Fulton, of Philadelphia; the Rev. William B. Preston, of Jefferson. Tex.; the Rev. John K. Eakin. Greenville. Tcnn.; the Rev. Theodore M. Wright, San Jose, Cal. • The order of the day was the pres entation of a gavel by the Rev. Her-’ bert R. Ruddcl. acting chairman of ar rangements, who said: “This gavel is made of wood from the following sources: A portion from the Chelsea life-saving station, symboliz ing the evangelistic work of our church; second portion from the old church at Deerfield, where David ani John Braluard worked, and where the body of John Bratnard now lies b&rled This represents the missionary work of our church. The third portion is from Lincgln University, representing the educational side of our church works. The fourth portion Is from the old First Church, these two representing the older and newer forms of church ac tivity. “The base is made of wood from the different evangelical churches of this city, Methodist Episcopal, Baptist. Protestant Episcopal, Methodist Pro testant and Presbyterian, symbolizing the unity of all in one body. “Mr. Moderator, this gave! you may hang up In your wigwam as a trophy of the Mate war for moderatorshlp.' •' The gavel was made by Richard Harris, a local Presbyterian. Modera tor Carson replied fittingly to the presentation and said It represented true Presbyterianism. The Rev. Dr. Robert Hunter, secre tary of the judicial commission, an nounced the readiness of the commis sion to receive papers—the first move of grttlng at the heresy. The Rev. Dr. Little, chairman of the executive commission, made his report. The first question of great importance to the Presbyterian ehureh is the con solidation of the different benevolent boards of the ehureh. For six years there has been a persistent demand for a rtrarangement of the "boards” for economy of administration. “In our investigations for light and principles to govern us In the effort to find out a satisfactory solution of the problems before us we have had the earnest co operation of all the bi/rds and perma nent committees of the church and of the officials of these boards,” said Dr. Little. In reference to n separate bureau on social service, of which the Rev. John McDonell, of Newark, has been chair man. and the desire for a separate bureau to include the work of tile dif ferent subjects as temperance, sab bath observation, labor, Immigration and other kindred subjects, the com mission advised against a separate bureau. The commission advised put ting this work under the Board of Home Missions and so unify the work under existing boards. Dr. Black said under advise of ex pert counsel that there are legal ob stacles In the way of consolidation and therefore the only consolidation of the board which iB feasible Is a consolida tion of the personnel of the board members. This will not Interfere with legal entltity, but makes several enti ties one in ihe persons of their direc tors and thereby bring them under one control. Calln C on«ollili»lloit IbcIUcIpiH. Dr. Moffat said the plan of consoli dation of the boards is Inefficient and the church will be giving up great efficiency for nothing of permanent value. 1 "You may eliminate thirty-eight salaried men, but you will put upon the remaining thirty a burden so great that they cannot carry It,” said Dr. Moffat. "I present a positive plan. You have a true federation In the ex ecutive commission. Your assembly dies each year on adjournment; your executive commission ' continues the whole year; the boards are nearer a unit In operation than ever before. “I object to this assembly following so closely the model of modern busi ness. We do not want to have a Su preme Court decision as dry as the Standard Oil decision." Recommendations were adopted In structing the executive commission of the assembly to confer with all the boards -with reference to the propriety of paving a general treasurer and a general purchasing agent.
