CONSTITUTION.

The new constitution of the methodist
church was ratified by the conferences in
the fall of 1901 by a vote of 8,241 to 2.525.
It differs from the old constitution in three
important particulars: Women are accorded
the right to sit as delegates in the general
conference; electoral meetings of laymen
are permitted to vote on constitutional
questions, and changes in the constitution
may now be made by a two-thirds instead
of a three-fourths vote. The constitution
was formally proclaimed by the bishops at
Chattanooga, Tenn., May 10, 1902. -

PRESBYTERIAN CREED REVISION.

The general assembly of the presbyterian
church was held in New York city, begin-
ning May 15, with Dr. Henry Van Dyke as
moderator. The report of the committee ap-
pointed by the assembly of 1901 to prepare
a brief statement of the reformed faith was
adopted May 22 with only two dissenting
votes. With reference to infant damnation
it is declared that chapter 10, section 3,
of the confession of faith is not to be re-
garded as teaching that any who die iu
infancy are lost, and it is 'added: "We be-
lieve that all dying in infancy are included
in the election of grace and are regenerated
and saved by Christ through the Spirit, Who
works when and where and how He
pleases." Concerning election it is held that
the divine decree hinders no man from ac-
cepting the offer of salvation and that no
man is condemned except on the ground of
his sin. The statement as to Antichrist is
amended by omitting mention of the pope.
