part, of pinpcrty I have some; of rcputs
tlon I have more. That property I pledrcd
on the Issue of this foment. And although
these fay hairs must soon descend Into
the sepulchre. I would Infinitely rather
thst they descend thither by the hand of
the executioner than desert at this crisis
the sacred reuse of my country."
These burning- words from the lips of
John Wltherspoon, one of the signers of
the Declaration of Independence, attest the
spirit of American Presbyterlnnlsm during
the struggle of the colonies for Independ
ence, for besides being the only clergyman
who signed the declaration, he was the
moderator of the first general assembly,
which was held In Philadelphia In 17X3, a
few weeks after the American constitution
was adopted and which he had no little in
fluence In framing For the first fifty-five
years the assembly met In Philadelphia
every yesr, with five exceptions, and that
city Is affectionately termed the "Mother
of Presbj terlanlsm. '
Two movements towards having a ca
thedral church building have been started,
one in Washington by Justice Harlan and
the other In New York by Dr. Howard
Dufrleld and the subject will be one of
several brought before the Presbyterian
general assembly, which will be opened
next Thursday morning In the Auditorium
In this city. Justice Harlan bases his claim
upon the fact that In the national capital
there Is a field of commanding and strnt
eglc Importance for the assertion and vin
dication of the doctrines and mission of the
chuich of Christ. His plan Includes the
establishment of a church large enough
and sufficiently well endowed to enable It.
In the name of -a common Presbyterianlani
to do a full share of the work of Influencing
the guiding life of the nation at Its govern
mental center. Dr. Dufrleld believes that
the old First church of New York is today
practically a cathedral church and only
needs an endowment to enable it to ful
fill all that could be expected from the
chi(rch which It la proposed to erect In
Washington. When the Washington plan
was laid before the last assembly it whs
opposed on the ground thnt it seemed to
be connected with the establishment of
elaborate forms and ceremonies , which
would be saddled upon the Presby terian
church if the proposed cathedral were
"I despise forms and ceremonies of wor-
! ship In the church," said Justice Harlan
In reply. "The proposed church Is not to
be an historic cathedral. Such a cathedral
Implies ii a ecclesiastical bos and I will
have none of it. We propose to state
what our capital stands -for and what our
duty is us Presbyterians."
Bonk of Worship.
"The Book of Common Worship," which
I a committee, headed by Prof. Henry Van
I Dyke of Princeton, has prepared, is to be
eported: it has been printed and Is now
being circulated to see how the churches
and pastors like it. For the name reason
that the cathedral idea Is opposed by some
people, the Presbyterian prayer book will
be opposed, but the committee does not de
sire to have the assembly commend the
book, but simply to leave it to each church
whether or not It shall be used, wholly
or In part, or not at all. Besides the sub
jects mentioned nearly a score more were
I referred to special committees to submit a
j report this year.
The Cumberland I'nlon project has been
making steady progress for three years,
i and it Is well-nigh certain that both as
semblies will now conclude its arrrange
ments looking to one assembly Instead of
two next year. The Cumberland peoplu
are not a unit upon the question, but the
Northern Church la practically unanimous.
The temperance discussion is ulways a
lively one. It was charged, a year ago.
that at an unnamed university many of
the graduates and older students drink at
social functions, and In saloons. The as
sembly expressed its deep regret that this
should be done and called upon college
and university trustees to prevent m far
as possible the drinking of wine and liquor
by tbeir students, and to discourage the
os of spirituous liquors by their gradu
ates. The assembly also passed a strong
resolution against the sale and use of to
bacco in any form.'
