There Is prospect that the 108th General Assembly of the Presbyterian church of this country will bo at tended by fewer manifestations of trong differences of opinion In mat ters of creed and polity tunu either of the two general assemblies preceding It. Tills Is the expressed belief of everal of the leading conservatives ana" liberals. The liberals have marked, they say, a retaxatlon of hos tility in the opposing church parties, ey concede that this general as- mbly win Decontrolled by the con- wnatlves. That Is also the claim of their opponents and the expectation toe country. A margin of .uncertalnity exists York Racket stock of 631 howcycr, In tho composition of the general assembly, which will contain n number of new men, of whose predi lections it Is Impossible to make an ttccurato forecast. Three or four questions of the utmost Importance in the church will come up during tho session, and any ono of them may pre cipitate a determined controversy. On at least two of them lb is certain that the mass of conservative senti ment and the mass of liberal senti ment will be arrayed against each other. The outlook Is promising alio for somothlng liken test of strength In tho organlznlon of tho assembly and the choice of Its moderator. The chief subject to como beforo this body will be the disposition of tho Now York Presbytery's reply to the Injunctions of tho last genernl as sembly, restraining it from licensing to preach students from seminaries which have been approved; the legal and theological control of seminaries by tho assembly; tho proposed dele gation of authority from the Home Mission Board of various synods, In tho matter of handling funds, nnd the report of tho committee appointed a year ago to Inquire Into tho growth and status of tho young people's societies. Outsido of these topics only routlno business Is contemplated. Dr. Wlthrow has been formally nominated for moderator, by tho "In terior," of Chicago, In an article sot ting forth In detail tho grounds for choosing him. Although presented to tho world ns a conservative he is regar(ed by ,nany n8 the candidate for whom most of those will vote who aro dlssatlsfiied with tho assembly's uctlon In both the Brlggs case una tho Smith case, and with reference to the control of tho theological semina ries. Dr. Wl throw's attitude In tho lateVrooman case, which has agi tated tho Presbytery of Chicago, when he lirst espoused tho cause of Mr. Vroomnn, notwithstanding tho lattcr's hlleged denial of tho funda mental principles of the Presbyterian faith; for example, his denial of the substitution of Christ and rejection tf the "whole Idea of an angry God requiring blood to be satisfied," coupled with the appearance of a circular In which a circumstantial ex planation of an apparent change of mind Is made In Dr. Withrow'a behalf has caused the surmlso that he Is somewhat In tho position of the king of Babylon, who stood "at tho parting of tho way at tho lieart of two ways not knowing which to take." LICENBUKE OF BTUDENT8. Tho subject of most direct interest to the New York Presbytery will be disposition made by the assembly of Children Cry for t.viharfs Castorla. its resolution In reply to the answer of the assembly to an original over ture from the presbytery asking for. Instructions ns to the licensure ef: students from seminaries not an-1 . . i proven, mo nisi assembly enjoined licensing such students, and, In reply, tho presbytery resolved that It would recolvo students on thclrowu merits regardless or. what have been their seminary aillllatluns. Tin-general as sombly may t;iko act Ion, expressing some degree of disapprobation, when the resolution comets before It ror notion. The instruct inns of tho general assembly In answer to the, overture from the presbytery arc recorded In the following repert: "Wo recognize tho general principle that a young man should stand on his merits, as revealed py examination, for entrance Into tho Presbyteilan ministry. yot.J "1. It Is the genius of tho whole Presbyterian system to educate Its ministers through careful training and Presbyterian supervision, and to make cITccltinl provision that all who are admitted as teachers be sound In tho faith. (Form of Clow, sec. f, chap. 1. ) "2. Out book requires that ,cxcopt In extraordinary cases,' beforo licen sure, tho candidate 'shall have stud led divinity at least two years under some approved divine or professor of theology.' (Form of Clow, sec. (I, chap. 14. "3. The General Assembly of 180(1 rccomcndcd every presbytery under their care 'to Inspect tho cducat Ion of these youth (those preparing for this ministry) during the courso of both their academic and theological studies choosing for them such schools, semi naries and teachers us they may Judge most proper nnd advantageous; so as eventually to bring them Into tho ministry well furntlshcd for their work.' (Balrd's Digest, pago3!)3.) "I. The General Assembly of 1894 atllrmcd that It Is the privilege of tho presbytery to direct 'the educa tion of their students, within reason able limits, in scdools npproved by tho General Assembly, and to prohibit their attendance at Institutions dis approved by the same.' (Minutes 1894, page 103.) THE SEMINARIES. Of general Importauco will bo tho report of tho Committee on Semina ries, Thomns McDougall, chairman. Up to date only Princeton and Lincoln seminaries have conformed. The commltto will report progress to tho generablo assembly, and the plan Is to continue tho committee. Prob ably the liberals, who are n unit against assembly control of seminaries, will seek to end tho effort In its favor, pcrhads by moving ot dischnrgo tho committee. The General Assembly willl vote at tho request of the Western synods to give all synods control of tho funds they raise for homo mission purposes. The report of tho committee ap pointed to Investigate tho Young People's societies Is awaited with a lively Interest. It may provoke an animated discussion. In u Gcnornl Assembly contalnlgso many new men It canuot be assured that tho Brlggs case or tho Smith case may not bo called up In somo form, although this is not expected. Ono matter will again bring Lane and Union seminaries in the public eye. Lane Seminary has called from Union's alumni, II. Good win Smith, of Freehold, N. J., to tho chair of theology, and II. W. Hurl burt, of Cincinnati, to the chair of church history. The General Assem bly may have something to say about either of these appointments' About 600 commissioners arc expected to be present. The session will close about June 1. Deadlock Broken. London, May 22. The house of commons today passed the agricul tural rating bill, after a deadlock of twenty-three hours.
