'110F. WOOIIItOW AND EVOLUTION. e^
J-'roi/t the St. I.ouitt l're*byttrian.
Art; wo not in (lunger of jumping to
tir conclusions? What the (Jliiireli 1,1
ceils and should demand, is a fuller,
coper, more dispassionate examination. Ic
?s one, who has been intimately ac- 1
naintcd with l>r. Woodrow for the past
L'venleen j'oars, and was taught by him
i the seminary, I desire to make my L
oble contribution to the elucidation of 01
liis subject. That Dr. Woodrow is a
evont Christian and a diligent, hnmble u
nd earnest student of the Bible, none
an deny who. know him. Mis reverhi
nee for the Iliblo, as the pure word of 1
lod, the childlike simplicity of his faith **'
i all its utterances, the native honesty
(t
f his mind, his ability and candor in
ealing with its difficulties from a scienlie
point of view, his deep conviction 111
f the absolute truth of every word of
lie llible?these are the impressions u
rhich were made upon me while I sat 1
t hjs feet in the seminary, and these u
nprcssions have only been deepened by
II my subsequent knowledge of him. '
ls a man of science, Dr. Woodrow's
I'putation for unquestioned ability is 0
oyond dispute by all competent judges,
, hother in this country or in Kurope.
'his wonderful ability, however, has ol
fn tm* l/il'irn nil nvlmit rtvnrcKfli^vti* ^
- 7 VT T
d by his excessive modesty. The presnt
scathing and searching ordeal
Itrough which his "Address on Kvolu- 111
ion" is passing will afiord at least this ''
ratilication to his friends?it will coinel
him to show to the public something c*
f those transcendent abilities which "
ave hitherto been exhibited mainly to
is students.
Now when such a man?standing '*
breast of the ablest Christian philos- M
pliers of bis generation, endorsed, too,
:> a greater or less extent in his views M
y such men as Ash (.fray, Prof. Dana, "
>r. Joseph LeConte and Prof. Drum- s
lonil, of (ilnsgow?when such a man
ives the result of his studies on ovolui'oii
and its relation to the llible. is it not ^
rorthy at least of a respectful and dis
assionate hearing ? When such an
ininent Christian ami scientific expei t
s Dr. Joseph LeOonte says: "I adopt ^
very \vor?l of Dr. Woodrow's address
s my own belief,'' it would seem that a
tliers should not hastily jump to the
(inclusion?Dr. Woodrow has avowed ^
is belief in evolution, therefore he is '
oth u heretic and behind the times as a i t(
' K
iiientist. Let me add just here in jnsice
to Dr. Woodrow that he knows
othing of my purpose to write this arti- V
le ; it is the spontaneous prompting of t\
grateful heart, feeling that I owe him ai
>r his instructions in the seminary a tl
ebt which 1 can never repay. 2,
In reference to the address it should t(
e remembered that it clearly discrimi- T
ales between that doctrine of evolution a
hieh is atheistic and that which is (I
licistic (preferably neither atheistic nor li
lieistic), rejecting the former and adoptlg
the latter as exhibiting (rod's plan g<
f creation. t(
lhither what Dr. Woodrow explicitly as
_ . i /> i r
in l Nil CVIMtlllUII, UCUIICU >21
y liini?which seems to him "tlx; only h
no which can be given within the limits o
f nntnra 1 science, necessarily excludes
lie possibility of the? questions whether cl
lie doctrine is theistic or atheistic, ci
rhether it is religions or irreligious, |j
loral or immoral." With him it is mom- a
theistic, as the logical contradictory of /<
theistic. It should be judged, tin.re- h
ire. from this latter point of view, is
'his of itself is t valuable contradiction; n
L enables the student to feel that to ac- t.<
ept the doctrine of the address does '|'
ot necessitate a renunciation of his be- n
ief in Ood as the Creator and Preserver tl
f all things. u
It is further worthy of notice that a:
kin doctrine of evolution is not contraictory
of the 1'iblc. Or. "Woodrow's b
osition is : Whatsoever contradicts the n
lible is nccessarilv false: we need no ti
irthcr proof of tho falsity of any state- n
tent than that it is contradicted by tho K1
libit*. But then., before we apply -this 2<
ummary process to any question in disutc,
we should bo very suro thnt the tl
tiblo does contradict it. Believing that tl
lie Bible does not contradict the theory si
f evolution, as held by him, ho main* '?
tins that it may bo true; but whether p
rue or false, it docs not aflfact in the d
ast his faith in "the absolute inerran- si
y" of tho inspired record. Tho Biblo H
nys "tho l.ord God formed man of tho it!
ust of the ground." The Bible there- ji
are answers two questions : 1. Who p
armed man ? uGod." 2. Of what ma- lr
L*rial did Gt.d form man ? 4'Of the dust ?
f the ground." If now we choose to e
sk a third question : Of what sort of II
ust, organic or inorganic, dio God form h
inn ? Tho Bible in silent. Therefore a
)r. Woodrow maintains that whatever 1
nswor natural s?ir>iir?n nnu rriur\ 41.5a i
- - - J o- ' " " " I ? '
hird question, it cannot contradict tho tl
lible, for the very obvious reason that tl
>n any particular point, when the first s
ritiiess neither nffirms nor denies, then I'
rhother tho second- witness affirms or ti
lenies, there can b? no conflict between y
hem in that particular. This again nets ti
he uiind of tho student at rest, for he t<
icrcoives that whatever niuy be said of 1
rolution, whether lio believes it to be co
iit? or false, lie is not required to uhate co
le jot or tittle of his fiiitli in the plenary so
spiratiou of (toil's word. \v<
Let it be remembered that Dr. Wooil- ra
w's address eon Hues the application of se
le principles of evolution to the body fri
* Adam, lie holds that the Scriptures \vi
.> teach that the sunt of Adaiu was not th
rolved, but that it was immediately wi
euted by (Sod; find that the Loily of U'
'rc is not nn evolution by natural pro- lit
'ssi's, but a creation by the direet in- Hi
(-position of the Divine hanik ICven it
i respect to the evolution of Adam's tr
udy he does not dogmatically and die- it
torially assert that it is so beyond far- y<
icr dispute, but. on the contrary, states se
i few of the facts which w^yr.to be fo
ifllcient at least to keep us from sum- en
larilv rejecting the doctrine as certainly ag
ilae." * * * '"cannot be lightly and ur
)iitemptupusly dismissed," * * * cl
many good grounds for believing that st
rolution is true in these respects." tr
Another distinction which Dr. Wood- tv
)w signalizes is that distinction between
le Bible and science coiitnufictiHtf dt
?ch other, and the Bible and science fl
rtf teaching the same thing. Many are w

Prof. Woodrow was put in tho Perkins
linir in our( seminary to teach "the
vnnec/ion between science and Ueve- ^
ition." Shall we now turn him out as e>
heretic because ho teaches that the ^
tir which regulates the "connection (j(
ctween science and revelation" is the
iiv of /joy/-eontradietion ? If this will ^
ot suit, will tho Church have him to
ach that it is the law of contradiction f jM
his would be heresy, indeed sheer in- cc
delity ! What then ? Shall he teach
jat it is the law of harmonyt IIoiv

Now it seeing that his critics demand
ml he shall maintain tho third. If so, j
len cither (1) thero must bo some
:andard outside of Nature- and of Hove- ^
ition with which tho two must be coma
rod, in Ardor to show tho harmony or
/.vharmony ; or (2) Nature must bo as- ^
nmod ns tho standard by which to judge j
evolution ; or (J$) Revelation must be
fisunied us tho standard by which to
idgo Nature. The Jtrst is clearly imossible?no
such standard exists. The
iw of harmony, according to the'iecond, fu
ould compel us to find tho doctrino of di
volution in tho Bible, or reject tho ni
Uhle ns raise. liiit tins is exactly what it
is critics declare is not in the Biblp, ci
nd yet they assort that tho Bible is.true, hi
'he law of harmony, according to the t
hird, would compel us to say, since nt
lie doctriuo of evolution i* not taught in c<
lie Bible, ergo is not taught in natural J'.1
cience. This is exactly the position
'rof. Woodruw's critics wish him to ff
ike. But what is this in its hist anal- vi
sis but tho Church a$ Churoh under- n
liking to teach scienoe, and to dictate ^
d her officers "what they are to believo"
o bo true science ? Xo\y has sho any a]
mmissio-.i to tench science? What
11 Itl she do, for instance, with the ;
ionce of astronomy if site insists that J
2 shall go to the Bible to got ournatu1
science, as well as our theological
ionco, mill that having first obtained
Din the Bible our science of astronomy,
e must then go to Nature to find there
e same science of astronomy ? This
ould be the law of harmony! Dr.
oodrow rejects it: he tells us there is ,
> natural science, of astronomy in the
bio ; it is a waste of time to search for
where it is not: if you would find the .
no religion, search for it where alone
is to be found, in the Bible ; but if '
m would find the true astronomy,
arch for it.where alone it is to be
und, in the stars. So, too. in referice
to geology, he constantly cautions
;ainst studying geology where no nat- ' '
al science of geology is?in the Jirst j ^
lapter of Genesis; if you desire to
udy geology, search for it where alone I
ue geology is to bt found?in the
f rlh.
Is it not manifest that if harmony is
'uiandcd as the regit lit ti ce law and the '
ible is claimed as the standard by
hieh that harmony is to be judged, |
en we must first go to the Bible to
= j
am science and then go to nature to
id there the same science which we
ivo already deduced from the Bible ?
id not this course produce the shatno1
conduct of the Church toward (Jal?o
? Is it not. therefore, proved to bo ,
i unsound principle ? ICrgo, the mind .
I'rof. Woodruw, severely trained by
e accuracy demanded in scientific
times, rejects it.
The law ?>f harmony, therefore. will j
>t do. The law of row//v/-dirtion will |'
)t do, as is self-evident. A'n/o, the
\v of Hojj-eontradictiou is the only law
liicli regulates the connection between
ience and revelation.
It seems, then, that Prof. Wood row is
>iiig exactly what he was put in the !
miliary to do, and exactly what the
liurch ought to desire him to do. Shall
e, therefore, for these things, denounce !
ui as a heretic, remove from him his
'ofessorship, and so repeat the folly of
e .seventeenth century ? And all for
hat? liecauso, forsooth, lie teaches J'
hi nn: regulative ia\v 01 me connection 1 ^
iIwoon science ami revelation is the
w oi' non-contradiction !
It semis clear that the Bible,-in Cten. 1
i : 7, "formed man of the (lust of the 1
ound,'.' leaves it an open question
liether the expression, "dust* of the ;!
ound," is intemled to mean organic or j
organic dust, and it seems equally
ear that no oilier passage of Seripture
ils in the solution of this question. If
i. then tlii< nnnelimi

(ho case, must belong to that-scicncc j i
host* proper study is the investigation :

ien is not any attempt to settle then
testiou of organic or inorganic dust by
,o Bible a persistent effort on my part

n I not attempting to violate the regutive
law of non-contradiction and to
jforcc the law of harmony ? IJut if so,
ay I not expect both the Hible and
lienco to rebel against me and refuse to
vc tne aid or comfort ? i
Hut if all these things are so. then in <
ie present aspect of the question of
'olution as to man, I am not callcd

) not believe it. As a scientific qties- i
i>n it is still under discussion. As to i
io final settlement of it as an accepted
jctrine of science, I can afford to be
ofoundly indifferent so far as I am
mcerned as a student of the Jiiblc.
or shall I concern myself to settle the j
lestion whether "dust" in Gen. ii : 7
oans organic or inorganic dust, by way

to n claim against Williams, and
giving him a pretty bad name. (!on|)led
with this was a rumor in town that
Williams had a wife in Georgia. Mr.
Johnstone, as a friend of Mr. I). S.Johnson,
rode out at once to his house and
laid the facts before him. They then
naked Williams about his Georgia marriage.
He acknowleged that he had

lie had got a divorce, lie was told that
there must by a full and satisfactory ex-1

Ixit instead of doing so he slipped out of
the house, mounted his horse and disappeared.
Mr. 1). S. Johnson . telegraphed
to Augusta in the afternoon, hut
received no reply until the next morning,
when he was informed that Williams
had never been divorced from his
Georgia wife.
The Observer saw Mr. Musgrove
Tuesday morning, lie was greatly distressed
and worried as well as surprised
nt the conduct of his partner. He says
that Williams came to Augusta ahout a
year ago from Greenwood where he had
been connected with a newspaper, at d
pot a position in the office of the
Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machine Co.,
and shortly afterwards changed to the
Household and Domestic, in which Mr.!
Musgrove was employed. Mr. J. K.
Harton, the general agent, asked Mr.
Musgrove to come over into South Carolina
ami sell machines. Williams
nuiiii-ii in cuiuu uiso tiiiti mey came
nlong togethether to Newberry and
opened business. Mr. Musgrove knew
that Williams had been married, and
that divorce proceedings were pending,
lie says that Sunday night Williams
told him he intended to get married,
and he asked him about the divorce
proceeding, and was told by Williams
that he had got the divorce through. Afterthe
marriage and speculations incident
thereto and the llight of the new-made
Rroom, Mr. Mustrove telegraphed to
Mr. Barton in Augusta :
"Ask Mr. Webb (Williams' lawyer in
ihe divorce case) if Williams has a divorce.
He's in troublo here,"
("Signed) O. H. Musmuovk.
Tuesday morning he received the following:

(). II. Muagrove, Newberry, 8. C.:
"Divorce proceedings pending ; but
second verdict liar, not been reached."
(Signed) J. E. Kaiitos.
The meaning of the "second verdict"
is, that in Georgia t vo verdicts, at separate
terms of the court, must be obtained
before a decree of divorco is
granted. It seems that Williams has
one verdict, but tho second hearing has
not been had. The case, has been pending
in Atlanta.
The young lady says that Williams
told her when paying his addresses
that ho had been married, but had got a
divorco. When I10 left Monday he told
her to keep confidence in him, nnd he
would return soon and that everything
will bo cleared up, nnd that he will be
vindicated. The situation in as interesting

The regular meeting of the Hoard of
Trade was held last night.
President I'earce. on behalf of the
Fxeeutive Comini'toe on the State Fair,
reported that he had appointed Messrs.
David Jones, ('. .J. Iredell and N'. \V.
Trump on the committee. They had
held one meeting and had corresponded
with.I. F. Buchanan of Reeve's hand, as
well as with Mr. Reeves, with reference
to procuring that hand for Fair week.
There was every reason to helieve that
the band woa.>ld be engaged, as favorable
negotiations were in progress, in
which President Duncan of the State
Agricultural Society was also participating.
President I'earce also stated that lie
had corresponded with live electric.
light compai'ies, and had just received
the address of another company to
which he would also write, with the
view of having electric lights at the
State House and at the Fair Grounds
during Fair week. There would be
at least one company represented at the
Fair, and it was probable that the exhi
hition of the electric lights here would
result in a permanent benefit to the exhibitor.
The indications point to a larger and r
better exhibition, attended by an increased
number of visitors, than any
previous Fair, and preparations had
been made, and would be further made,
for a grand dis?play of the industrial
aiid agricultural resouces of the State.

The C?hc in Aiken County and How

and (lie Case to he Appealed.
The case of the Woolfolk heirs against
the tlraniteville Manufacturing Company,
which was tried in the Court of
General Sessions in Aiken on Monday,
and which was concluded hy a verdict
fur defendants, has attracted considerable
attention. The issue involved the
i.?ir .u.. 1
possessed by the Grnnitcvillo Manufacturing
Company. The counsel representing
the plaintiffs were Mefsrs. Abnev
& Al>noy, Croft & Dunlap, .1. E.
Bacon, A. II. Alfriend and .0. C. .Ionian;
for the defense, Messrs. Henderson
Bros.. Samuel Lord and .1. I*. Cloy. The
defendants regard the verdict as a virtual
termination of the suit, and consider the
matter irrevocably settled in favor ol*
the company.
On the other hand the heirs, we understand,
will appeal the caso to tho
Supreme Court. They say that the
court ruled out a certain deed nn a legal
technicality which constituted an important
link in the plaintiff's chain of
titles, .-miI Hint by their own motion they
thereupon directed a verdict to Iw taken
against them, with the lijiht of appeal to
the Supreme Court. On this anil upon
other points made during the progress
of the trial, objection was made. The
error complained of in this important ?
link consisted, they allege, in the ruling
upon the point thai u deed was probated
liy a .1 iistice of the Peace in (reorgiu, tho
defendants claiming ll.iit it should have
been probated by nn ofHoer in South
Carolina. Tho Judge ruled against tho
plaintiffs on this point-, and the casogocM
