TALKS OF MEETING
HE DISCUSSES INTERESTINGLY
THE QUESTION OF CHANG
ING NAME OF CHURCH.
SOMt NEW IDE/VS ADVANCED
Th e Brunswick Pastor Throws Some
Very Badly Needed Light on a
By Wyllys Rede, D. D.
The recent convention of the dio
cese of Georgia, lield in Savannah,
had before it a question of unusual
interest. For many years there has
been a desire upon the part of the
many members of ithe Episcopal
church that the title, Proftestant
Episcopal, under which she has been
known in America during the last
century should he dropped. This de
sire is ba-ed, not upon a wish for
any change ol' her doctrinal position,
which remains the same, but upon the
belief that this title has been out
grown, is negative rather than posi
tive , is too much identified with the
dead issues of the past, and hinders
the growth- ot the church both among
those at home who feel no interest
in the religious controversies- of med
iaeval Europe and those abroad to
whom the Protestant idea does not
appeal. They think that if the church
will lay aside this name, which is not
borne by any other brajich of the an
cient historic church, of Christ, she
will take a long step in the direction
of Christian unity and will place her
self in a much stronger position be
fore the world The number of these
win i \ iews nas been iu-
MW tbe past fitty yeai ' s>
HKKclLbl. mmrease during the last
Hg@pwfias been very rapid. The last
general convention of the church, held
at San Francisco, found that the move
ment 'had become so strong! that it
could not be ignored. In order to
find out the wishes of the people of
the' church throughout the United
States, it requested that the subject
should he disbursed in the convention
of every diocese and that each such
convention should report to the gen
eral convention whether it desires any
change in the name of the church
at the present time, and, if so, what
the change shuuld be. In response to
this reque t the diocean conventions
are taking up liie question and de
fining their attitude towards it. Of
those who qav e thus far acted upon
it a majority have expressed them
selves at, desiring a change, while a
strong .minority desire no change at
the present time. While this move
ment is not sectionsf, it is evident
than its chief strength lies in the Mis
sissippi Vallow and the west, while
the older, dioceses along the Atlantic
costet take a lhore conservative view
of this, as they do ol' all other ques
tions. Among ! hose who desire a
chauge there is considerable diver
sity as to the final settlement of tho
question. Two dioceses have put
themselves on record as desiring the
name "American Catholic;”
as wishing simply to drop the the
words “Protestant Episcopal’ and put
nothing in their place, the rest have
suggested a variety of names. The
great majority of those who advocate
a change do not wish to adopt, any
sectarian name. The whole question
what name, if any, should be adopted,
Tern a in.- to lie worked out. We have
not yet really got beyond the prelim
inary inquiry whether any-change is
desired. If that is answered in the
affiimative by a large majority of the
dioceses, the gono-.al convention will
probably take into consideration the
question what name, if any, should
be substituted. But therejs not the
slightest ground for any hysterical
anxiety lest some sudden and unde
sirable action be taken. This church
is conservative through and through;
she never does things in a hurry, auo.
she always gives all her people abund
ant opportunity to jnake their wishes
known. Thero is no disposition upon
the part of any of her members to
force upon the church something
which Slie does not want, nor to any
rash and dangerous step. If any
thing is done, it will be only after ma
ture consideration and with due re
gard to the feelings and convictions
of all concerned.
The diocese of Georgia, after a
brief and animated discussion, voted
on Thursday last that it does not
desite any change in the name of
the church at this time. Some of
tv —> who voted to this effect desire

Judge Parker will rap for order in
thel superior court room tomorrow
morning and the Glynn superior court
will bo convened in regular May ses

This session of the court promises
to be quite an interesting one, as
there are a number of cases, both civ
il and criminal, o tho docket. Just
which of the dockets will be taken
taken up first is not known.
Probably the most interesting case
to be tried is that of Sam Story, the
white mam, Who is in jail, charged with
the murder of Hamp Shriver, and
who has twice before faced a jury,
mistrials being declared. The circum
stances connected with the case arc
familiar to readers of the Nows.

Probably the best indication of the
fact that the Mohawk Valley Steel and
Wire company are in dead earnest
about building the steel plant in
Brunswick was demonstrated yester
day when that company placed- quite
a large order for tools and construc

Hardware company ol’ this city.
Among other things was a !arg§

Quite a large force of hands are
now at work digging holes for pil

of authority that an additional force
of from twenty-five to fifty men will
be put to work at the site of the
plant bright and early tomorrow
The News is not optimistic; it is not
pressimistic, but this is one of the
developments which it thinks is a
healthy sign of the times and should
offer encouragement to the people of

it is stated the amount which will be

altogether on the report of Major H.

If Major French reports favorably
on the Georgia militia it is very prob

as is now expected, that the state will
receive nearly twice that amount, or
Governor Terrell feels very much
encouraged over the inspection that is

going to take a dip anyway.

for Saturday and the police had lit

It is safe to say that a large crowd
will go to Jacksonville today. There
