ATLANTIC CITV, N. J., May 2S. Tho
easiest way out of trouble was chosen ngaln
todny when the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church took n step toward
solving Its vexatious seminary problems.
It Instructed .Moderator Marquis to ap
point a committee of four ciders and three
ministers who nre directed to studv the
question nnd advise the 1917 nssembly
whnt should bo done.
This Is really n step forward. Every Gen
eral Assembly since 1892 has considered
this seminary problem and has passed It to
the succeeding convention, nnd so for these
34 years nothing has been done. The situ
ation had become Intolerable and promised
trouble nt this year's meeting. This trouble
3 averted, but It is reasonably sure that
today's proceeding makes conclusive action
next year n ccrtnlnty, '
Whether the lenders In this assembly felt
than nn nddltlonnl year's study was neccs
sary or whether they Just wnntcd to slide
through smoothly as they did yesterday on
the heresy proposition, only they know,
tind they nrcn't telling, but one must be lost
In admlrntlon of the mechanics nf thn nn.
scmbly. How they avoided debate on the
heresy nffnlr yestcrdny no one pretends to
know; how they did It todny Is hnrdly short
There wasn't ovon n suggestion of n
speech today. Dr. J. Ross Stevenson simply
read his committee's report, nnd did It so
nicely that ono felt It would bo highly Im
proper even to think of debate. The motion
to ndopt It was put nnd carried without
even n sign of disapproval.
ft had been expected that Judge J.
DoWItt Andrews, of New York, would plead
earnestly for Immediate nctlon, but nB It
happened, tho business was put through
before ho arrived.
STEVENSON A POLITICIAN.
One commissioner said, mlmlrlnn-lv not
sarcastically, that politics ceitnlnly missed
a great opportunity by letting Doctor
Stevenson enter the ministry. He added:
"There never Is a debnto when he handles
tho situation; ho doesn't allow It."
This seminary problem began with the
Union Theological Seminary, and now em
braces every other theological school.
A glance over tho names of these semi
naries shows how widely spread the prob
lem Is. Here Is tho list:
Princeton Theological Seminary,
Auburn Theological Seminary. Now York.
Western Theological Seminary, Allegheny,
Lane Theological Seminary, Cincinnati.
Kentucky Theological Seminary, Louis
McCormlck Theological Seminary, Chi
cago. San Francisco Theological Seminary, San
German Presbyterian Theological School
of tho Northwest, Dubuque.
Lincoln University Theological Depart
ment, Lincoln University, Pa.
Biddle University Theological Depart
ment, Charlotte, N. C.
Omaha Theological Seminary, Omaha.
There Is represented In that list property
worth about twenty-five millions, which
would bo In dispute sooner or later If tho
General Assembly should rule wrong. The
matter comes down to this:
By what they call the "compact of 1870"
all these theological seminaries are bound
to have the General Assembly rule oer
their faculties ; a veto by the General As
sembly means that n prorcssor mus. go or
be prevented from taking a chair in the
first place. "
The Union Theological Seminary threw
off this restraint In 1892, nnd ever since
then the General Assemblies, one after an
other, have been simply passing the Issue
on to the succeeding body. The Issue In
its particular case centres around 'almost
$2,000,000, which the bcmlnary collected
while under tho protection of the General
Assembly nnd which the Presbyterian
Church thinks ought to be taken away from
It, now that it Is no longer n strictly Pres
It Is the only such college which has
acted. But nil the colleges are getting
ready so to act. Auburn, a little more for
ward than the rest, has had the nerve to
ask this General Assembly to rule; It
wants to know what will happen to It If It
does what Union did 24 years ago, because
It knows the policy of Inaction Isn't going
to continue forever.
Dr. W. II. McKlbben, president of Lane
Theological Seminary, said today that
what the' seminaries want Is to get. away
from the Assembly control of their facul
ties, but not from the other Influences. He
Intimated that what they rather hope for
is to find that the "compact of 1870" Is not
binding, and that will solve the problem
Whatever Is done there Is sure to be a
spirited debate on the floor. It won't be
the honeyed affair the heresy report was.
Judge Andrews, of New York, Is pretty
sure to have something to say from the
seminary camp, and he won't have to look
tor some one to take up the cudgel against
him. They'll be nround,
The most likely action is appointment of
n committee to And the best solution and
report to the 1917 convention, which will
have to act. That will make the' settlement
of the problem only one year off and the
delegates think they can stand that, having
stood It for years.
If they don't do that they will have to
proceed against Union In law and bring

simists think It Is bound to get there,
Doctor Stevenson nlmost apologized to
the nssembly for again bringing a "trou
blesome" matter to Its attention. But he
said lie did It "to get It out of the way,"
nnd then proceeded to the reading of the
report. He had rend about two sentences
when he Interpolated some Information to

hill while nnother In the seat, was trying
to get It Into gear. The other car was
farther down the street, whero It had been
abandoned after the alleged thief's fuUle
attempts to start It.
The three men gave chase, yelling as they
went, A crowd soon joined. The fugitives
separated, but the crowd kept after tha
ono they had seen in tha seat. Tha distance
between the young man and his pursuers
gradually decreased, when a flash of talcum
powder went through tha air and tha per
sons nearest, Btopped for tha minute,

turned and ran tho other -way when they
saw his face, declaring ho was a ghost
The boy had smeared tha powder over his
features ot disguise them.

Ever slop .
the faces of
f Every face has eyes,
ears, mouth, nose, but
have you ever found
any two faces exactly
alike in expression?
Q Well, there's just that
makes and "styles" in
$18, $20, $25
are the prices
I Coats, vests and trou
sers are pretty much
alike in their general
features; what you're
looking for is a Suit
that appeals to you just
as some particular per
s o n appeals to you.
You want to like it.
In a Perry Suit,
there's the expression
a little something in the
cut, a little difference in
the lines, a little snap in
the making, all of which
put animation into the
materials tailored by
Perry's. A Perry Suit
is a work of art and an
exponent of style!
Of course, to appreciate
the difference, you'll
have to see the clothes!
