It Mut Be ow or Never.
Rev. S. Howden. of (ieuessee, X. Y., said
the assembly must disapprove or let the
appoinfment lie confirmed by default. It
was now or never as to the veto. If this
assembly did not disapprove the thim;
was finished. N'o action could be taken
except that proposed in the committee'
report. The amendment of Dr. Lotan de
laying the veto nullified the report, and
Dr. Urines' appointment wa-s settled. This
would Ire lieid by any jude lrefore whom
the compact should come. The assemlnv
Tuunt . protect all its richts. It was the
highest routt of the church, and w hen a
cae came from a lower court it must be
reversed or affirmed.
1l A Hallway Lawyer's Views.
! Colonel .Itrhn J. Mc-Omk, the ureal rail
road lawyer and a memlrer of Hev. John
Hall's church in New York, said he wanted
to buru into the hearts of the commission
ers what their departed brother had said,
and impress upon them the necessity of
doinK the only possibly thinj; it could do.
Surtrestiotis had been made alrout the lot
bies warning the assembly to le careful.
Cart'ful of w hat ? Of doitiK their duty? If
they did that they would semi out to the
world a report of the only honest action
they could take. 1 lev. Mr. Hathaway had
fhown Lis opinion of I'nion by deciding to
send his son to Princeton, after he hail ar
ranged for him at I'nion, rather than
place him uuderthe influence of a man
who attacked the Uible. This brought
cries of "shauie," ".haiiie," and the speaker
Logan Defends His Amendment.
Rev. Mr. lAnn. who had moved an
Amendment sending the case over until
next assembly, then spoke in defense of
his amendment. He did not undertake to
controvert the law as laid down by the ec
clesiastical lawyer, Dr. Patton, and the
civil lawyer. J. J. McCook, yet he
thought it was a stramre law which al
lowed them to mingle tx parte positions
with law. This report was not only a
blow at I)r. Uriggs, but at the seminary.
Ciies of ""No."' -No."J Should the sem
inary Ire driven out of the church by pre
cipitate action? It could Ire taken up wlieu
the assembly met next year if there was
trouble in I'nion college. That was good
fundamental law of the church, and would
be sustained by the highest civil courts.
DR. WORCESTER'S SUBSTITUTE.
Tils., spoke fcr the entatftute; Eld?rJun
kins, of Philadelphia opxsed it. Dr. C.
11. Parkhurst, of the Union The logical
seminary, said he loved Dr. Brigj.-s, but
that he was a difficult man to get. along
with. The directory would meet -he as
sembly in any plan of settlement of the
matter. He favored Worcester's substi
tute. Several more speeches were made,
and then the moderator announce! that 3
o'clock had arrived.
CLOSING SCENES OF THE DAY.
A Struggle for Recognition as Time Vassed
The Final Vote.
The scenes in the assembly as consider
ation of the case came to a close wer-' very
exciting. After the adoption of the reso
lution in favor of taking a vote n the
matter at 5 o'clock. lth sides Iregau get
ting in their I test licks. Hriggs' friends
were iersistent in their attempt to post
pone consideration. During the last few
minutes the contention for the floor was
terriilio. Civil Service Commissioner Ly
man; Rev. Dr. linker, of Philadelphia and
Rev. Dr. Hartlett, of Washington City,
were among those who were fortunate in
securing the moderator's eyv. and, though
Judge Shipman of New Jersey, had been
waiting an hour under Moderator G-een's
nose for a chance to say a last good word
for Rriggs, the moderator did not notice
Adjournment Howled Uokii.
Five o'chxk came with Dr. llartlct- urg
ing the veto of Dr. Rriggs" npjrointment,
when a Rrigtrs man jumped up with mo
tion to adjourn. The assembly howled
him down. Dr. Worcester's sulrstitu e for
the report of President Pat ton's cor miit
tee was first presented. There w as ih t one
hundred iu favor of it. Next cam.- Dr.
Iogan's amendment that disapproval le
extended only for the present, which was
voted down with as big an adverse major
ity as Dr. Worcester's substitute. Then
came the report of Patton's committer'.
From Disorder to solemn stillnes-,.
Amid wild excitement, mingled with hi
larity, the vote was ordered, but fron. dis
order the whole scene changed to most
solemn stillness when the name ot the
first presbytery on the list was called by
the stated clerk. The ayes had it from
the start. Only a solitary "no"' lent aid
and comfort to the Rriggsites for haH an
hour. The southwestern reserve and the
far west were solidly Irincetonian. The
mederator voted for the report, as did the
stated clerk. Dr. l'atton was not prei-ent.
The foreign delegates voted"aye"as strong
ly as they knew how. When the vote was
counted it stood 440 to 50. Rriggs' ap
pointment had lieen vetoed, and Princeton
had won the greatest theological bi ttle
since the trial of Professor Swing. Ad
THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY.
A lliKH altlfiit Who Vroposed a Com
rruiuise of the ae.
Ajier a few more sjreeches pro and con,
Dr. J. H. Worcester, whose Calvinistic
views are erf the strictest sort, promised a
sulistitute for the resolut ion and Dr. I.o
gaji'V amendment. His sulistitute pro
Kisdtliat inasmuch as the relations be
tween I'ui'rn college and the assembly had
grown out of its rights, certain things
should be done. It provided for a com
mittee to confer with the directors of
I'nion seminary as to the relations of the
seminary to the assembly next year; that
the directors lie requested to rescind the
transfer of Dr. Rriggs, and that in any
event Dr. Rriggs lie not allowed to give in
struction in theology. 1 he sulistitute was
seconded, and Dr. Worcester addressed
the assembly in advocacy thereof.
Wanted to Soothe the liirertnr.
He said the sulistitute provided a course
calculated to soothe the self-respec t of the
directors of Union, who felt that undue
haste was ln-ing exercised in the case. It
gave time for new light to come in for all.
If it was referred back to the directors they
could revoke the appointment, which
ended the alT.rir: they could reappoint and
the matter would come up again in a year
with tietter knowledge of the case and they
could disapprove. It was easy to do in a
day what could not Ire undone in a genera
tion. It .the assembly not rejieat the
errors of the fathers. Krrors seldom come
through acting too delilierately. Dr. Wor
cester's speech was received with a storm
The Issue forced on the C'hurrli.
The noon lecess was taken, and upon re
asscmbliug Dr. McKiblien. of Cincinnati,
took the floor. He said the assembly clid
not seek the issue. It had lieen forced
upo'u the church. It was a serious thing
for a man to strike at the foundations of
the church. When eighty presbyteries
were moved to ak the assembly to pass
on Dr. Rriggs the assembly could not es
cape the resjionsibility. Rev. Elieuezer
Erskine, of Carlisle, Pa., followed in a
lengthy speech against Dr. Rriggs' posi
tion. Like ail the other speakers he dwelt
strongly on Judge Rreckenridge's advice
given the assembly just before his death

A motion was then agreed to fixing the
time for the vote at 5 o'clock p. m., and
the debate was limited to ' ten-minute

Chicago, May 20. President Harrison's
position regarding the contest of ls!i was
stated by Russell Harrison at the Audito
rium yesterday. The president's son and
Lis wife were on their way to the national
rapital, and had stopped for a few hours
in this city. Mr. Harrison received a good
deal of attention from politicians, who
wanted to known the lay of the wind at
the White House, and during a conversa
tions he cbmpaign of IsOl being the subject,
Mr. Harrison was heard to say: "Presi
dent Harrison won't be a candidate in

fumed to the speaker inquiringly.
What's that:-" spoke up one of the lis-

The President's Lot not a Happy "e.
"Should the Republican leaders insist
upon it," continued Russell, "then he ill
allow his name to go lrefore the conven
tion, but not under anv other circum
stances. He certainly would not lie a can
didate if he consulted only his family.
Personally he had rather retire to private
life, but as an anient party man he is will
ing to observe the wishes of the majority.
The life of a president is not the happiest
one. The president can't sail about with
golden wings. He is so busy with the
affairs of the nation that he sees very little
of his family. Then he cannot even take
a walk without lieing waylaid by office
seekers. In many respects it is a very
disagreeable existence, and 1 know that
my father would much prefer private life."

The questions now pending are import

longer. In view of this state of affairs it
is lielieved that Secretary Rlaine will feel
it to Ire his duty to himself and the admin
istration to ask that his successor be ap
pointed. There is considerable gossip as
to his successor. Senator Sherman and
the Hon. John W. Foster of Indiana have
Ireen talked about, as well as ex-Senator
Edmunds. Sherman and Edmunds are
not considered very close to the track of
official lightning, but John W. Foster, the
personal friend of Mr. Rlaine and his good
second in diplomatic affairs, is the most
likely man, so say the gossips, were it not

The Difficulty Could Be Got Aronnd.
In this connection the gossips revive the
talk of the retirement from the supreme
bench of Justice Harlan, whose health has
been failing for several months, and the
appointment of Attorney General Miller
as his successor. Then the appointment of
Gen. Foster as successor to Secretary
Rlaine would le apropos. President Har
rison dires not conceal his admiration for
Gen. Foster as a diplomat. Altogether it
would seem that the gossips had hit upon
a very probable bit of political history.
