Interest In IbeCiiitu ItnvlvlmAetlon of thr
\ w Vorl Presbytery.
Nnw YOIIK. April 10. Interest In the
Hrlggs ease Is reviving as the time for the
meeting of the Presbyterian general assem
bly approaches. That body will assemble. In
Washington on the third day of May , and lo
It the committee on prosecution of the Now
York presbytery , representing the Presby
terian church , will appeal from the decision
of the Now York picsbyt 'ry acquitting Kev.
Ur. Hriggs of the charges of heresy preferred
against him. The presbyteries throughout
the country are now electing delegates to
the general assembly , atrtl the Hriggs case
and a revision of the confession of faith are
the Issues on which the contests In the
presbyteries are mado. Those presbyteries
in favor of tbo revision movement arc ,
tin a rule , naturally In favor of Dr. Hriggs.
Some of the uresbyterles have elected dele
gates who are pronounced Uriggs men whllo
other presbyteries have adopted resolutions
or overtures virtually in favor of the aban
donment of the case against the accused by
the committee on prosecution , lo Iho end
that the peace of the church may bo pre
served. The Hriggs force will contend that
the appeal by the cominltlco of prosecution ,
if taken at all. should have been taken in
the first instance to the synod , us provided
hy the book of discipline. This question will
no doubt bo contested vigorously by both
sides , and , particularly , by the extreme ad
vocates of a strict technical ub-tervatlon of
Iho law of the church.
The semi-annual meeting of the Now York
presbytery was held today The principal
business before the body was the election of
seven clerical and seven lay commissioners
and their alternates to the general assembly.
Uov. William J. Hat-sha was re-elected and
the clerks were re-elected. Kov. Dr. Mc
Millan suggested the commissioners bo
chosen from tin1 majority , as was usual with
the presbytery. "An important case , " ho
explained , "will go to the general assembly
on appeal , and It seems only fair that the
delegation should represent the majority
who acquitted bin1.1'
This reference to Dr. Hripgs brought sev
eral anti-Hripgs clergymen to their feet. Dr.
Kobinson interrupted Mr. McMillan's reading -
ing of the names of seven candidates for
commissioners with the remark : " 1 never
heard of this presbytery sending a party
delegation to represent the assembly. "
"Out of order , " ruled the chairman.
"Then I take my right to protest , " Dr.
Hobinson said excitedly.
Dr. Charles L. Thompson Introduced a
series of preambles and resolutions giving
the negative to the overtures to the general
assembly on tbo revision of faith , and
after a considorablu debate they wore
Hofore adjournment Dr. Hriggs , risimr tea
a question of privilege , appealed lo the pres
bytery to secure him fair treatment before
the general assembly when he would appear
Ihcro as appellee.
The election for clerical delegates to the
general assembly resulted in tbo cboico of
the following : Kevs. Drs. Alexander , Thorn-
kins , Hrowii , Shinning , Hooth , Chambers
and Wylio. It is regarded as a very great
victory for the Hriggs men. The first four
named are supporters of Dr. Hriggs and the
other throe are antl-Hriggs men. The lay
delegation was chosen after tbo Hriggs men
had Icft Iho session and stands two for and
11 vo against Uriggs.

LONDON , April 10. In the Commons today ,
speaking on the homo rule bill , .losuph
Chamberlain satil the bill proposed to estab
lish a brand new constitution for Ireland.
Gladstone had asked when the controversy
would bo settled It the measure was re-
jeeted. The question was would the bill bet-
tie the controversy ? Was not Gladstone. In
too great a hurry , and was ho not too impa
tient to deal with the Irish uinieulty. Cilad-
stone had disregarded the right of the mi
nority and treated the most inlluential and
prosperous section of Irish people with con
tempt. Ho proposed to subject that section
of the Irish people to such legislative condi
tions as would wreck their industries and
expose the whole country to financial ruin.
Not Ireland , bijt England , equally had
reason to dread the results of this measure.
Opposed (0 till ! Illll ,
The whole of the property classes. " con
tinued Mr. Chamberlain , "whatever their
religion , was opposed to the bill. Had the
IH'imo minister ever known any state to suc
ceed when the irovcriimunt was opposed by sv
majority of the classes owning property ?
Even the nationalists in accepting the
measure did not admit that It was a finality.
Ho challenged the Irish leaders to say
whether they accepted the principles in the
bill afllrmlng the veto of the crown in ad
vance of the British ministry , and prevent
ing the Irish Parliament from deal
ing with external trade. Were these
taken as llnal or wore the financial clauses
rendering Ireland liable to increased taxa
tion for war and other purposes unmuvtod
with imperial policy accepted as llnalf There
was absolutely nothing llnal about the bill.
As soon as an Irish Parliament should be
formed they would require it to bo patched
up again. ( Hear , hear ! ] Did anybody con
sider the so-called safeguards in the bill
worth anything if the Irish majority was
determined to disregard them ! True , the
Hritish Parliament could enforce them by
civil war , but not otherwise. [ Conservative
choern.l The only safeguard the gov
ernment had , continued Mr. Chamberlain ,
was the peed feeling and generosity of the
Irish leaders and people , and if the govern
ment had the courage of its convictions it
ought to sweep away the so-called safe
guards in the bill. Hut probably Gladstone
still suspected the good Intentions of ttio
men to whom he was maneuvering to give
the government of Ireland. Those were the
men about whom ho formerly said that they
preached the gospel of plunder and were
marching through rapine to the dismember
ment of the empire. The present chancellor
of the exchequer had denounced them as
preaching the doctrines of treason and
l'Vur.4 "I tlio I.mnllnrdtt.
TJio present chancellor of the Duchy of
Lancaster had said that if tl(0 ( police should
bo placed in the hands of an elective body ,
the landlords might whistle for their rents
and he chid if they escaped with a whole
skin , and thc-pivsent secretary for Scotland
had once declared that ho would r.ither re
main a private citizen through this life than
consent to conlldo the lives and liberties of a
law-abiding population to a parliament com
posed of such men. These were the utter
ances ot four ministers who now led the way
in proposing to establish such a parliament.
[ Conservative cheers ) . Ho would not say
that Ireland , if England .should bo engaged
in war , would take sides against England ;
but it was possible that the sympathy
of the Irish might bo with England's op
ponent , thereby exposing England to the
risk of a simultaneous civil and foreign
war. Mr. Gladstone now professed bound
less faith in the Irish people , but it was a
faith of recent growth. They were asked
to stake the honor and dlcnity and the life
of the nation on the assurance that a
miracle would bo wrought , changing the
hearts of many and altering the springs of
human action. The danger was too great
and the possible gain too small. If the bill
should pass ami then escape disaster and
disgrace , the government would still fail to
linda plausible reason for risking so much
with so little corresponding advantage.
[ Cheers ] .
Justin McCarthy , leader of the anti-Par-
nellites. ridiculed Mr. Chamberlain's prophe
sies of disaster. The Irish people , ho said ,
hailed the bill as a pledge that their aspira
tions would bo satisfied. They would accept
it as a message of lasting peace. Predictions
that they would misuse it , discord and dis
loyalty , would bo made honestly only by
those mistaking the present mood of the
Irish nation. Ho could not say that the
Irish party was quite satisfied with tlio
financial clause of the bill ; but. generally ,
they accepted the bill as an honest settle
ment. As far as the Irish party could see it
might prove a llnal settlement. If the bill
'was carried the prime minister would win
the dying affections of millions of people.
[ Cheers ] .
DM IT HUH No CIIIIHO fur Pour.
William Ucdmond said that the bill had
been discussed suniciently by the House.
Nothing was to bo gained by prolonging the
debate and a division was now needed to
give effect to the wishes expressed by the
nation at the last election. Mr. Redmond
ridiculed the idea that Ulster had anything
to fear from Catholic Ireland.
Sir George Trevellyn , secretary for Scot
land , made an elaborate defense of the bill.
Ho commended Sir Michael Hicks-Beech and
Mr. Chamberlain for their frankness , "In at
least settling the Irish question by
some measure of self-government. "
lioth of the weightiest opponents of
the bill , ho said , had in fact
admitted that had the bill contained a guar
anty of the supremacy of the Imperial Par
liament that they would have accepted it.
Hut uil guaranties formerly asked by the
opposition had been conceded. Sir George
taunted Mr. Chamberlain with inconsistency
In this matter and charged the conservative
party with practicing now all the arts to ob
struct which they had found soolmoxlous
when used by the nationalists. Afteranswer-
ing in detail the arguments of the opposition
against specific provisions of the bill , ho de
nounced strongly the Ulster proirram.
After Mr. Hartlott ( conservative ) had
spoken against the bill the house adjourned.

Hr.i.EKA , Mont. , April 10. Chairman Car
ter this afternoon issued a call for a mooting
of the republican national committee at
Louisville , I\y. . May 10.
When asked by an Associated press re
porter as to the objects of the meeting , Mr.
Carter said : "There has not noon a meeting
of the entire committee since prior to the
last campaign. Heforo its final adjournment
in New York it was tno sentiment of the
executive committee that tno full
national committee should meet during
the year for the purpose of consultation ,
with a viuw to securing conformity and har
mony of action by the party in the several
states and territories. Louisville as the
place and the 10th of May as the timoi were
suggested , by reason of the meeting thcro
and then of the National League of Kepubli-
can Clubs. Mnny mcmbcrsof the committee
would be present as delegates to the league ,
while others , no doubt , woulil visit Chicago for
the opening of the World's fair and be within
a short distance of Louisville about that
time. For these reasons , and also because
I liavo been urged by a largo" number of na
tional commltteeinon to call a meeting at
that-time , [ t appears to me the most opitoT-
tune time for the withering of the national
committee , which has been contemplated for
many mouths. 1 am advised by General
Clarkson that a largo number of distin
guished republicans from every section of
the union have .signified their intentions 10
attend the league' meeting. Independent of
any special business , it is important to the
party that this representative body should
confer before and after ouch presidential
election , if not moro frequently. "

to participate. While the festivities were
at their height , Domitt Jacobs , a Catholic
Armenian , cut a dross with a pocket knife
in a table in tlio house of George Duilowe ,

a squad of officers were sent to the scene.

was today asked his opinion of the Central
Union's scheme , In view of the World's fair
closing to work at their trades Sundays difr-
int ? the fair , in order that they might have
some other day during the wcok in which to
visit the exposition. Hishop Spalding said :
"If there Is no hope of opening the fair on
Sunday I can sec no benefit to society in Sim-
day labor. It would bo demoralising to the
workingmen and , incidentally , to society
at largo. 1 hope some means can yet bo
devised through which the fair will be open
Sunday. The saloons and places of vice will
bo wide open , while the gates of the fair will
bo closed. I fear that there will bo cause
for regret that the exposition was closed. I
haliovo that all museums and libraries
should bo open Sunday. They act as educa
tors and no ono disputes the fact that they
elo\ato mankind. If Puritan customs must
prevail , why not close the public parks on

It was 10 o'clock tonight when the meeting
of the council of administration and the rep
resentative of the building trades council
came to tin agreement , which is to continue
throughout the entire period of the exposi
tion , and under which further trouble was
impossible. The men have received the
formal concession of a minimum rate of
wages and have yielded to the demand of the
exposition officials , that they may employ
any man. v > bother ho l > o or be not a member
of any labor organisation.
The llrst step looking toward peace was
made this afternoon , when a committee of
strikers was appointed to submit to the
World's fair council of administration thu
following proposition :
"That if the World's fair council will ngrco
to submit the diflorencos between the men
and the exKslHrin | tonrbitration at 4 p.m. .
April 12 , the building and trades council
will order the men luck to work at oncd ,
pending tjio result of arbitration. The
building and trades council binds Itself to
abide by the decision of the arbitrators ;
ono arbitrator to bo selected by the building
and trades council ; ono by the World's fair
management , and a third by these two.1
This proposition was submitted to the
council of administration as the labor men's
ultimatum. The council of administration
was In session and promptly returned an
answer that it was prepared to meet tlio
men at once. The matter must bo settled
soon it could bo settled then as well as any
other time. To this the committee agreed ,
and > ho result was a meeting which for sev
eral hours went over all tlio aspects of tlio
case , but with two short adjournments , ono
by each side , for consultation.
At 10 o'clock tonight the council of admin
istration presented to the executive commit
tee of the HtriKors the following resolutions ,
which were preceded by a short preamblu
setting forth the existence of the strike ,

These resolutions were at cnco signed bv
all members of the strikers' executive com
mittee , representing the 8,000 or 10,000 laborIng -
Ing men , and their trouble was ovor.
It was a close call for the exposition , not
only for Its opening , but for Its success. Tlio
work of the nion who struck today is nearly
over , and while they could not have ruined
the fair they might , by stopping tin1 work
so have delayed matters that the exposition
could not have been in complete readiness liy
the 1st of August. Thern was great ro'iof
expressed on both sides whim the thing \v .H
over , for the members of tlio council of ad
ministration and of the strikers' cummUtoo
alike were fearful of the weight of public
opinion which would fall upon the party
that opposed or obstructed the success of
Olijrcl of tbo Strike.
The strike today was an attempt to union-
