THE BANNER WATCHMAN,
The school for statesmen did not take
its usual Saturday holiday yesterdry A
Saturday session this early in the year i
an unusual thing for the Legislature,
It ia said that the winter vacation
will be given and the usual summer
school of the statesmen’s institute will
be held. Well, if the business of the
State can be best subserved, let the re
cess bo taken.
Ip it is true that Phil Armour and Miss
Hettio Greene are to buy the Central
Railroad and hook it on to the Kansas
system at Birmingham, it will make
mince meat of Capt. Raoul in Georgia.
The latter has just consolidated a tine
Carolina system how ever, and will re
main master of a fine field in any event.
Capt. Raoul has always figured like
man who could hold his own.
Now that the Richmond and Danville
Railroad has met the Georgia Railroad
and matched its fast train schedule, we
hope both roads will put on new* ami
neat passengor coaches, and give us a de
cent if not a delightful service. \Ye do
not doubt that each road will find it to
its advantage to do this. The best way
to bid for travel is to make people com
fortable and to render the journey easy
It waa Gen. llragg, of Wisconsin, and

the enemies he had made. Cochran has
been elected to the next House and Bragg

haa proranaa good aa it* promise. The
new fast passenger train, will begin
their trips tomorrow morning. They
will ran strictly by schedule time, and
will be hindered by no freight complies-
tions at either end nor on the line. This
will it a great benefit to the traveling
public and to Athens. It will deliver
the msils here twice a day liin clock

freight lection once a day. The

two secretaries af tha murdered Presi

began in May, 1884, when Br. Woodrow
delivered an address to the si rani of
the Tresbyterisn Seminary, in Cot tmbia,
S. C., in which he pointed to all the evi
dences of the formation of the earth and
the creation of man, and declared the
probable truth of the unfolding of the
species by means of evolution. Dr.
Woodrow believed that the evidences of
the rocks, the prtli of the fossils and the
succession of the various form of ani
mals showed that matter had been fol
lowing a progressive aeries of develop
ment from the lowest form to the hi£-
ost crestion of man.
This made a commotion in the Pres
byterian chnrch in tho Mouth. The mat
ter was at once referred to the Tarioua
synods and presbyteries, which general-
ly dissented from the doctrine, but de
clined to insist upon tho Professor's re
moval, The question catno up before
the General Assembly of the Church it
Augusta last May, and that body
made a direct deliverance, affirming
that man's creation was by immediate
act of sup.'ruatural power, and not by
the atages of evolution which some
scientists held, Aa this body had no
power of removal, tho trial of l)r. Wood-
row for heresy was referred to to the
Augusta Presbytery, which met at
Itethel uhurch list August in Gresne
county. This church court acquitted
l)r. Woodrow of tho charge, but the
four State Synods which control the di
rectors of tho Seminary have recom
mits! his dismissal from the college
faculty. The Doctor will have to retire
text mouth and tlio doctrine of descent
by modification will probably hares rest
so far as the Presbyterians are con
The question has been agitated beyond
its merits. Science is not positivo itself
about the truth of the theory of evolu
tion; indeed, later students of geology
uro inclined to discredit the hypothesis
entirely, Dr. Woodrow who has inves
tigated tlio matter in Europe and Ameri
ca has only hinted its probable truth.
Tlie controversy in tho church has hing-
I upon the question whether or not the
theory expounded by I)r. Wooodrow
was hostile to the Word of God as con
strued by Presbyterian standards. Dr.
Woodrow maintains that the Bible sim
ply announces that God made man out of
the dust of tho ground,that the Bible does
not say, and the cliutcli standards do not
make it say, that he was created imme
diately—or blown into existence like
soap bubble. His theory is that God
made tho rock, the shell, the fish, the
mammal ar.d the man by endowing the
primordial germ with the instinct of life
and leaving that genn to unfold itself
into higher forms and finally tobloasom
in His own image, lie does not think
his theory ban out a belief in God’s
power, hut rather broadens and bright
en* that belief. He hold* the species
may have bniltup by fixed laws and in*
telligcnt methods—all proceeding from
an overruling power—all sanctioned by a
Dr. Woodrow haa had the best of the
argument. Wo do not see the danger or
the impiety af his teachings. He stand*
condemned by the authorities of the
Presbyterian Church, however, but will
probably continue his other chair, which
ia in the Carolina State College in Co
lumbia. Ilia church ministry is still un
der the direction of th* Auguata Presby
form, or whether h* will return to the
Randall alliance. Mr. Blount is a man of
ability, experience and influence, and
Georgia would be honored by once more
having a representative in the Speaker!*
Chair, once occupied by Howell Cobb.
Ik report* from this section are real,
ized throughout the State and South,
and we believe the crop conditions were
generally alike, the cotton in the country
has been nearly gatbared and sold out,
and the yield ia from one-foortb to one
third short The increased receipts at
the ports and interior point* merely
represent the precocity—which means
the prematurenesa—of th* crop. Tha
yield of 1888-7 will be e light one, not
withstanding tb* New York prediction*.
Not a few of the citizen* of Athens
have recently become greatly excited
over the astounding facta, that several of
