levoid of every leature; of evangell

Bible Is never taught or even read,

four appeals during the day, from the
decision of the chair. One question at
issue;, , the continuity of the service of
the members of the board of finance,
was lost, in , the maelstrom of talk on
tactics. A. resolution introduced by
delegates from Virginia held that .as
the Senate of the United States; had al
lowed the claims as a "great charity,"
the fund to be used for the support of
superannuated: preachers, widows, etc.,
and that no -portion of the amount be
yond $5,000, the amount: intended' by
