PRESBYTERIAN
ASSEMBLY MEETS
Indication That Rev, W. S. McEwan
of Pittsburgh Will Be Elected
Moderator.
BIG ISSUES TO BE CONSIDERED
Atlantic City, N. J., May 18. Inter
est in the first day's sessions of the
Presbyterian assembly which began
its 128th annual meeting here today,
centered in the election of a moder
ator to succeed the Rev. J. Ross Stev
ens, president of Princeton Theologi
cal seminary. Leaders 'among the
2,000 delegates predicted that the as
sembly would set a precedent by se
lecting the Rev. W. L. McKwan of
Pittsburgh. It Is customary to alter
nate between the east and west in
filling the highest office in the gift
of the church. Other candidates
prominently mentioned include Rev.
Dr. John A. Marquis, Cedar Rapids,
la., and Rev. Dr. Hugh A. Walker of
Los Angeles. A successor to the late
Dr. Noble of San Francisco, the per
manent clerk, was also to be chosen
at today's sessions.
The gathering was considered one
of the most important in the history
of the church. Among the matters to
be considered are an overture from
the Cincinnati Presbytery for the ex
pulsion of the New York Presbytery
on charges of ordaining to the minis
try men who, disr laim many of the
essential" beliefs of the church, and
the proposed consolidation of the col
lege board and the board of educa
tion. War and Christianity.
The reports that have been pre
nared bv various committees for con
sideration during the week reflect
some of the new phases of church
problems and particularly some of
the effects which the great war in
Europe has had on church work.
These reports compiled in a book
of 200 pages, which were placed in
the 'bands of the delegates to the as
sembly here today, include some
optimistic views as to the effects
which the war is having and will
continue to have on religion. The
executive commission of the alliance
o the reformed churches through
out the world reports: ,
"Instead of showing the failure of
Christianity, this war has revealed
the strength of Christianity, for
Christianity has been the only bond
that has not snapped because of
this war. (hit of the present condi
tion in F.urope three facts are1
emerging that bear on the religious
situation. The first isthat religion
over there has become largely phil
anthropy. The people have passed
from faith to works. All the coun
tries are full of charitable efforts to
relieve poverty and suffering,
Opportunity for Evangelization.
"The second peculiarity is cvan
gcliatum. The 24,MHl,iMK) men of
the different armies afford a grand
opportunity for the spread of the!

BULLETIN,
P.I Paso, May 1H. An American
soldier who crossed the international
boundary, a mile and a half east of
Juar.-z, early today, was shot and
killed by Mexican customs guards.
General Gavira, Carrauza commander
in Jaurer. informed General Bell,
stating that the American was in
toxicated and fired on the Mexicans
before they shot him.
General Hell immediately detailed
two officers to Juarez, and these, in
conjunction with two officers as--signed
by General Gavira and the
Mexican military judge, began an in
vestigation of the shooting.
Washington, May 18. American '
consuls ami vice consuls at Chihua
hua. Juarez, Nogab-s, Duratigo,
Aguas Calieiit.es and Monterey have
been ordered lo I'.l Paso to confer
with Major General Fimslon. It was '
announced that the purpose is to pro
i ide closer' co-operation between the
American civil and military authori
ties in watching developments in the
border rrgion, but it may have a
bearing in ultimate withdrawal of the
American forces. Consul Letcher of
Chihuahua probably will later come
to Washington lo make a report.
Official advices of the rescue of
Deemer ami Payne, the two Amer
icans rarried off by Mexican bandits
after the Glenn Springs and Iiorjuil
las raids, say Colonel Sibley and tha
expedition after the ltorpiillas raiders
were yesterday at Ixjs Alamos, forty
miles south of the border, while
Major I.anghorne's troops were last
reported near Cerrero lilanco, where
thev struck the bandits, wounding"
ami taking two. Iloth forces now
arc out in small detachments.
Deemer Safely Across Border.
Marathon, Tex., May 18. Jesse
Deemer, the Hoquillas store keeper,
and Monroe Payne, negro, kidnaped
by the liig Hand bandit raiders and
rescued by Major George T. Lang
home's cavalry detachment, have
reached Iioquillas, according to of
ficial reoorts received here today.
No official confirmation has yet
reached here of the reported engage
ment between (he America" troops
and the bandits, in which six Mexi
cans were said to have been killed
and seventy-live captured. It is
thought that the story of the encoun
ter may have had its origin in a fight
that occurred when Major Lang
home released Deemer and Payne,
Bandits Are Surprised.
According to the official r"port, the
rescue of the Americans took place
in the dead of night. Major Lang
home, with a detachment of the
Kighth cavalry, drove in automobiles ,
and trucks to a ranch house where
part of the Glenn Springs raiders
were quartered.
The bandits were surprised, but,
although surrounded, they put up a
stiff fight. Two were wounded and
two captured. The remainder escaped
in the darkness. The Americans had
no losses.
Scarcity of gasoline for his supply
trucks is said to have prevented Ma
jor I.anghorne from immediately tak
ing up the trail of the bandits.
Major Langhorne is reported still'
pushing southward through Coahuila.
'Residents here are in receipt of tn
formatioii from lloquillas that 400
armed Yatpii Indians have left Cuatro
( ienrgas, IdU miles southeast, riding
in a direction that should place them
near Major I.anghorne's advance col
umn shortly. Army officials say they
cannot confirm the report.
