The directors of Uaioa theological seminary have met aad declared their position on the ques tion of the right of the general assem bly of the Presbyterian church to veto the transfer of Prof. Charles A. Briggs from the chair of Hebrew to the chair of biblical theology. The resolution paaaed at their meeting held yesterday aftecaeea ia aa fellows: Resolved, Thai the hoard ef directors. after having taken legal advice aad after dae consideration, see no reason te ehanga their eiewa on the aabjectef the transfer ef Dr. Briggs, and feel bound, in the dieeharge ef their duties under the charter aad constitution ef the semiaary, te adnre te the same. The intent ef the vote paed by the general aseemhty at ita receat semioa ia Detroit waa that Dr. Briggs sheaM cease to be a professor in the Uaioa seminary. The effect of the resolution given above is that it ia the judg ment of the directors that the veto was a usurpation of powers never given or iateaded to be given to the general assembly, and that since the veto was illegal, the appointment stands, and Dr. Briggs will continue as professor dur ing the coming year as during the past seventeen years. The fact that a struggle n in prog ress behind closed doors was evident when Prof. George A. Prenti.v stag gered out into the hall after the discus sion had been under way for two hours, and nearly sank to the floor through weakness brought on by over excitement The venerable professor's body shook like a leaf and he had to be assisted to a private room until he had recovered.

It is evident now in the face of tho present action of the seminary directors that the visit of the general assembly committee will be useless. THE BENSON TRIAL.

The facts would then be investigated and the mea, if tbey came here under contract and arc discovered withia a year, caa be returned to the country from whence they came.

"If things are allowed to go much further," he continued, "we may soon expect a cablegram announc ing that Herr Von Scbloezer has claimed, in the name of the Kaiser, a right to veto our appointment to a dozen episcopal see in the United States Archbishop Kalzcr.

But the audacity of the Prussian Is to he noted all tho same as an indication of foreign thought and action in our regard. The con tagion spreads, and to an extent that compels a smile of amusement in the midst of our indignation and anger. So long as the church in America i fit only to be portioned off to the cans of foreign countries, why would not any foreigner, however small he be, ask for a piece? Hence we have M. Mrrcier, minister of the province of Quebec, a mere colony of England, who happened to meet la Rome Herr Cahcnslj. running to the Vatican and praying in the name of his little constituency that a Canadian bishop be named for the sec of Ogdcna btirg, in the state of New York. M. Mercicr, wa must say, is modest He should, when once started, hare- aimed at higher game and asked that tin see of Boston or New York be handed over to his patronage. Hut appetite come in eating and who knows what monsieur might at tempt another time. We can eally picture a further extension of this for eign ambition to rule Catholic officer in America. In a few year the ecclesi astical map of the country would show tho fingering of every foreign princi pality whose emigrant chose to touch our shores. New Orleans, we Imagine, would suit Italy; Bohemia might be satisfied with Chicago; Detroit a a matter of course, would go to Posea and Gnesen In Poland, etc, etc. Possibly a few see. James town or Charleston, would be left to Americana This attack of forrignLsm upon the church in America i killed by ita audacity. So long a It worked stealthily by secret embassies and back entrances, it wa dangerous and doing harm. It ha now entered into open combat The outcome will be most favorable to church and to country. Catholics in America, whatever the raco from which they spring, will be more vigilant in the defense of their rights both a Catholic and a Ameri cans. "I have seen the official denial of the representative of the Deutsche Amcri kanlscher Priestcr Vereln or German clerical society of America disclaiming all knowledge of or co-operation in the Cahensley memorial.
