SALT LAKR TRIHUNK 51T Fourteenth Street WASHINGTON D May 15 IsflO A prominent Western Senator in speaking of the silver situation gives as tho reason why so many conferences have failed the

positive statement that ho will veto such if sent to him Tho President is very anxious for the pass age of a silver bill and agrees with tho loaders of the party in tho House and Sou ato that it is

purchases under the bill would be in vited lie did not deny that the passage of the bill would put the price of silver up Its very introduction had done that because it was apparent to thepeople abroad that if the United States Government consumed the entire silver production of the country onethird of theworlds there would bo a demand for silver that could not bo met It might put the price up to par He did not know exactly what par would be He supposed per ounce would bo called par in the United States It would be less in Great Britian and less inEurope If it put the price oneeighth of one per cent above par purchase under the Government bill would cease and the great interests arrayed against silver would obtain their ends This was no vainsupposition nor iinaguiation on the part of the people who wanted to have silver used as coin It was borne but by the facts There was 11 in tin United States iiloiiu but sill over the world that held the credits of the world that took lioJl

people were now ready to surrender their vantage and adopt a Jinanciul system thatwould relieve the taxridden debtors of this country and the world and put them back on where they were in The energies of those people were beyond cal culation Their avarice was only equalled by qheir energy Theycoulcl put silverat and above par whenthey wanted to aud if thoy could thereby destroy silver as a money

metal and that you would have to go to the only suitable Was it a delusion he asked to suppose that that would Tje doney lie suspected that these people would do any thing within the range of legislative enactment or of commercialtransactions to accomplish their purpose and the bill that contained a pro vision which would allow such a state of affairs was not a perfect bill Butler asked Teller to give his idea of the effect of the free coinage of silver on international monetary arrangements Teller said that everybody had to admit that the proposed bill whether it were a scheme of the Secretary of the Treasury to pile up bullion in the Treasury Department and pay it out on demand of the noteholders or an amendment reported by the Finance Committee was a tem porary affair member of the Finance Committee would claim that it was a permanent thing They said it was temporary they were wiiiting to see what the current of events was going to be ami then said to the friends of

today President Roberts of the Lake Forrost University tho retiring moderator delivered an address The privileges and consequent obligations of the Presbyterian at length His reference to tho absorbing topic of revision was in en umerating the special privileges of tho church Among these he said was a clearcut strong and Scriptural creed Notwithstanding the few objectionable passages ailoged incorrect interpreta tion of Scripture Jaml the questionable philosophy of two or three paragraphs in our standard they are a marvel of skill and didactic acumen They been classed the best specimens oxtant of clear thought and cogent reasoning They wero prepared In troublous times for the purpose of uniting in one church nil theChristians of Groat Hritain and Ireland paragraph was

by many have had no sympathy with its doc trints as the best compendium of scriptural truths tho world has ever seen Tho standards arc not only clearcut but exceedingly strong Thov arc basid largely on Gods sovereignty It is no such sovereignty however as implies arbi trariness or injustice bur such as abuses tho proud and encourapos tho lowly It is loudly proclaimed in these days that tho doouinis of our standards are destitute of tho broathhigs of Gods This is largely true The tender phnso of tlio ilivincchnraotof is not so eloarlvstt forth as it ought to bo in this age Kut it iTusst

after the way hail boon prepared for them by tho sterner qualties of tho law which camo by Mosos Tlio strong truths of our Calvanislic creed aro not to be looked upon therefore as monslrositios but as necessary antecedents to inilder ami more lovable doctrines Those doctrines have been drawn out of Gods word in such a way JVR to for bid the making of any essential changes in them without doing violence to that Among the other privileges of the church enu merated and dilated upon were Ji government more in keeping with the teachings of Scripture than that of any othor branch of the church championship in tlie cause of education super ior missionary appliances and concededwealth On this latter point Roberts said in part It msy soem doubtful at lirst si jilt whether riches can bo

moral ity as well as strength when viewed as atrust for Gods plory and tire Rood of the world It is often alleged church owns and controls more money than any other in our land tlie congregations in New York City is said to possess more than a hundred millions of The Presbyterians of Chicajjo have under their control not m their possession hundred millionsof dol lars This is a fair sample of what is to be found in other communities East and West It is cer tainly a groat privilege to be entrusted with so much of our Lords money if we have grace to use it as good and faithful Dr Roberts added that the obligations arising from those privileges come under tlie whomsoever much is given of him ehould much he and spoke at prcat length on tho duty of the church Following are some of his points There is an evident looseness not only in admitting men into our ministry but also ia giving church sessions unlimited license to sup ply their own pulpits In many congregations ministers are lured by the year like clock The community in which they live regard thorn not as permanent factors in their social or re ligious life The value of the permanent pas torate is beyond all computations a few of our vacant churches are allowed to be overrun by professional candidates Out worthy ministers arc frequently set aside by men who are after the loaves and fishes They have a few flashy discourses that pJease the ears of the when they are delivered they hayo nothing loft worth listening to Under this prac tice piety languishes actively ccascs and Chris tian benevolence is left uncultivated prosbvtcries must watch with greatcrcaro Jie entrance into her ministry The number of candidates who reject some of the fundamental loctrines of our creed is said to be on the increase U the present rate of increase the doctrinal of our church will certainly beimpaired If the growing laxity goes on a loud cry will ently be raised for a creed that will bind no min ister to a specific system of belief The presby teries should exercise more vigilance in the direction of preserving a soundness of faith in our ministers and elders The Presbyterian Church is called upon to conserve the educational institutions she has been largely the means of establishing and to add to their number as circumstances may de mand The public school system the bulwark and glorv of our nation but of late it has become sin object of assault by the Romish clergy The high etllcisils of that politicore ligious system are bout on destroying or control ing it The church wo represent is in duty bound to meet these enemies of our common schools They should and be im proved in certain particulars but in its main features and fundamental principle must be upheld At the cost if needs be of blood and treasure
