Presbyterians to Again Discuss Eevision at Detroit, The General Assembly Convenes This Week—Prof. Briggs' Actions to Be Looked Into. PKOBTJ5.MS FOR TKESBYTERIAXS. DETKOIT, Mich., May IS.—The 103d session of the Presbyterian general assembly will begin on Thursday morning next, the brethren of the south meeting in Birmingham, Ala., and the brethren of the north in this city, with Rev. Dr. Moore as moderator and Rev. Dr. W. H. Eoberts as clerk. With, a report expected from the committee appointed last year at Saratoga to revise the Westminster confession of faith, and with overtures from about eighty presbyteries in regard to Union seminary, some asking the assembly to veto the appointment of Prof. Briggs, whose inaugural address on Biblical theology has led his own presbytery in New York to begin judicial proceedings against him, among other topics of importance which are expected, the coming assembly promises to be memorable. The revision of the confession of faith was the question last May which aroused the greatest interest throughout the evangelical denominations. For two centuries and a half the followers of Calvin had the utmost confidence in the integrity of their system. But, conservative as the Presbyterian church is, , it found itself obliged to go with the current of modern thought. An important revision committee, of -which Dr. W. C. Eoberts is chairman, containing' some of the ablest scholars in the church, has prepared a report which will be submitted to the assembly this week, *.nd after discussion and possible amendment will be sent to the presbyteries for their consideration. After the presbyteries have discussed it and have suggested any changes the committee will make its final report to the assembly next ye'ir. Then it will go to the presbyteries as an overture and if the requisite number approve it it will become the law of the church. Changes have been recommended by the committee in chapters 1, 3, 4, G, 7,10, 1*, 10, 21, 23, 24, 29 and 30, and two new- chapters have been inserted, one en- tited "-Of the Work of the Holy Spirit" and the other "Of the Universal Offer of the Gospel." Ths case of Prof. Briggs, of the Union theological seminary, New York, promises to overshadow the confession of faith revision. A few paragraphs from the professor's now famous inaugural address will show the cause of the excitement regarding his orthodoxy. In his address he had this to say in regard to rationalists: "Martineau could not find authority In the church or the Bible, but he did find God enthroned In his own aoul. There are those who would refuse those rationalists a place in the company of the fathful. But they forget that the essential thing Is to flnd God and Divine authority, and if these men have found God without the mediation of church and Blbio, ohurch and Bible are means and not ends; they are avenues to God, tmt are not God. We regret that those rationalists depreciate the means of grace so essential to most of us but we are warned lest we commit a similar error and depreciate the reason and tse Christian consciousness. The Bible has been treated as !£ it were a baby to be wrapped up in swaddling clothes, cursed and careful Ijguarded lest it should be injured by heretics and skeptics. It has been shut up In a'fortress and surrounded by breastworks and fortifications as extensive as those that envelope Cologne and Strasburg. No one can get at the Bible unless he force his way through tne b«astworks of traditional dogmatism and storm the barriers of ecclesiasticism." Dr. Brijrgs was especially severe in his handling of the dogmaticians who have, he thinks, built barriers around the Bible, "shutting out the light of .God, obstructing the life of God and fencing in the authority of God." The first barrier which he proceeded to demolish is "superstition." And this is the way he did it:' "The first barrier that obstructs the way to the Blblo is superstition, We are accustomed to attach superstition to the Roman Catholic Mariolatry, hagiolatry and the use of images and pictures and other external things in worship. But superstition is no less superstition if it takes the form of Bibolatry. It may he all the worse if it concentrate itsell on this one thJpg. But the Bible has no magical virtue In It, |tod there is no halo inclosing it. It wll^not stop a bullet any better th'an a moss book. It will not Keep oH evil spirits any bettor than a cross. It will not' guard a coma from flre hall so well us holy water. II you desire to know when and how you should take a journey you will find a safer guide !n an almanac or a dally newspaper. The Bible is not better than hydromanoy or witchcraft if we seek for Divine guidance by the chance opening of the book. The Bible as a book Is paper, print and binding—nothing more. It is entitled to reverent handling for the sake of its holy contents, because it contains the Divine word of redemption for'man, and not for any other Mason whatever." May End the Trouble. LONDON, May 18,—The Buenos Ayres Standard is authority for the statement that Gen. Mitre will be unanimously elected president of the Argentine Republic. His accession to the-executive office will, it is believed, be the beginning of the end of the troubles in that unfortunate country. Russia Contract* for 3,000,000 Rifle*.
