LICENSURE OF STUDENTS
The Northern and Southern Assem
Saratoga, May 22. In tho Presby
terian general assembly today n re
port on Sabbath observanco was pre
sented by Elder William It. Worrell,
of Ney York. It denounced all work
on Sunday, the various theories of In
dividual liberty, excursions, ball
games, bicycle riding, lax vlows of
Sabbath social enjoyment and Sunday
newspapers. Resolutions wore
adopted reaffirming formerly tho de
liverance as to perpetual binding obli
gation of Sabbath.
Saratoga, N. Y., May 22. Tho
eighteenth general assembly of the
Northern Presbyterian church opened
here yosterday at 11 o'clock at tho
First Presbyterian church where so
many previous assemblies have met.
The opening sermon was dollvered by
Rev. Robert Russell Booth of New J
lork, the retiring moderator, on tho
subject, "Christian Union and De
nominational Loyulty." Dr. Booth
spoke of tho conflicts In tho church
and appealed to tho assembly to tako
measures for tho abatement or strife.
Memphis, Tenn., May 22. Tho
thirty-sixth annual assembly of the
Presbyterian church. South, convened
at H o'clock yesterday. The opening
sermon was delivered by tho retiring
moderator, Rov. Charles R. Hemphill
of Louisville, Kentucky.
THE NORTHERN ASSEMULY.
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
A margin of .uncertalnity exists
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."
