Robert Howie, of the meeting of the Presbyterian gen-j Winnipeg, and Rev. Df. A." S. Grant era! assembly today was the reslgna- tiou of Rev. Dr. A. S. Grant, of Tor- onto, Out., as cliaivman of the Board of Finance. The resignation was ac- cepted. When tlie question of the personnel of this hoard for the next year came up Jaijies Rogers, of Montreal, re- signed his position on the board be- cause of'the fact tliat differ- ences with Dr. Tlie latter im- mediately rose and said that under the circumstances he would retire from the board. He did so and .iaa. Rogers therefore withdrew his resig- nation. Rev. Dr. A. S. Grant was made chairman of-the Board of Finance four years ago; after, the .assembly in Etimonton. He was extremely reluctant to accept the position at the time since he was already bur- dened with work as general superin- tendent of home missions. K is also the law of the church that the same man cannot he on the board of finance and also on any other board. The ordinary law is now made to apply to him and he. will continue as general superintendent of home mis- sions. Two hours of tha time of the as- sembly was taken'i'up with-the cpn- eldorfition of a real estate transac- were interested. Dr. Howie bought this land and approached Rev. Dr. Grant with a proposition to establish a boys', school. Dr. Grant agreed to help, providing he could get money and Dr. Charles Gordon and some other Winnipeg people became inter- ested. -.-C, Hard times then came on. and tha deal be put through. Mr. Howie wanted the assembly to inves- tigate the matter, but it refused. Informally the commissioners wide- ly discussed today the effect which the decision on the union would have on the work of the church.'. Manito- ba college for several.years been seeking a principal and the question was raised as to what would now be done. Without doubt Manitoba Col- lege and Wesley College will Immed- iately get together in a Joint meeting of the college board and; discuss the new situation. In the -'suburbs the smaller churches are most deeply interested since it will profoundly af- fect their future. There are at least a dozen of these churches regarding which conferences .will near future. Rev. Dr. Robert Campbell and Rev. Ephriam Scott, leaders of'the oppos- ition to the were both active in the regular work of the' assembly today. It is not expected bj the majority of commissioners that the movement for continuation of the Presbyterian church will seriously af- fect the future of the united church It. is expected that the assembly will conclude Its work by noon oa Friday. A new arrangement of mail serr- ice between Edmonton and Lethbridge has been made which will be of great benefit to Lethbridge commercial terests.
