THE RELIGIOUS TRACT SOCIETY, 

56 PATERNOSTER ROW, LONDON. 

,,,_ . /REV. LEWIS BORRETT WHITE, D.D. 
* S \REV. SAMUEL G. GREEN, D.D. 

rpHE RELIGIOUS TRACT SOCIETY proclaims the Gospel of the Grace of God in 209 
- languages. It was founded 94 years ago with the object of spreading the news of 
God s love at Home and in Foreign lands. 

It is supported by, and aids Christians of all Evangelical Denominations. Circulated 
more than 67 millions of publications last year. 

Does not expend one shilling of its subscriptions or donations on management or other 



Uses all its Missionary Funds for the object for which they are subscribed, but pays all 
its expenses out of Trade Funds. 

The "Pilgrim s Progress" has been issued in over 87 languages, in most of which the 
Society has helped. 

Has published its New Testament Commentary in eleven languages Chinese, Arabic, 
Syriac, Mahrati, Bengali, Tamil, Canarese, Urdu, Hindi, Singhalese, and Karen. 

Has issued more than 50,000 libraries, varying from 25 to 500 volumes, since 1832, 
either at very reduced rates, or for very poor districts free. 

Helps all the great Missionary Societies in their work of providing Gospel literature in 
their fields of work, but is able to do only a tithe of what is needed through want of Funds. 

Maintains in all its publications a testimony to Evangelical Truth. 

A subscription of 10s. 6d. or upwards constitutes membership In the Society ; a 
sum of 10 : 10s. constitutes Life-membership. Subscribers receive copies of the new 
tracts and other small publications ; and in this way alone 11,000 distributors are 
helped. 

Catalogues of the Society s publications will be forwarded on 
receipt of post-card sent to 56 Paternoster Row, London.

PREFACE 

IN issuing the Book of the Church of Scotland for its eleventh year the Com 
mittee ask for it the same cordial reception as has been accorde 

so many years. 

In the present volume those features which the experience of past yea: 
has shown to be valuable have been retained, while new features have been 
added to increase its usefulness. In response to a strong request made 
specially in the interests of vacant congregations, there will be found 
page 43, appended to the Regulations for the Election of Ministers, a series 
of Counsels and Suggestions issued by the General Assembly with a view to 
obviate mistakes and to afford guidance to congregations in such el 
An interesting Historical Sketch of the Year 1895 has been contribute by 
the Rev. Peter Thomson, B.D., minister of Dunning. The Statists 
information and Ecclesiastical Lists have been brought up to date, and 
no pains have been spared to secure their accuracy. The figures denoting 
population are those of the census of 1891, and those denoting stipends 
been obtained direct from ministers. 

The book is the product of much labour ungrudgingly given by many who 
8 eek the welfare of the Old Church, and thanks are due to all whc , have 
helped in its preparation. Mention should be made of the ready help affordec 
by Presbytery and Synod clerks, of the kindness of the Rev. Wm Simpson 
Bonhill, in revising statistics, and most of all of the unwearied labours 
the Editor, the Rev. J. AIKMAN PATON, B.Sc., minister of Inch; a 
Mr G M Alpine, the Secretary to the Committee. 

in sending it forth, the Committee look with confidence to the ministers 
and members of the Church not only to welcome the book but to co-operate 
with them in securing for it a wide circulation. There could be no greater 
encouragement to those interested in the Church than such a knowledge , 
her work as this book furnishes. 

In name of the General Assembly s Committee on Christian Life and Work, 

WM. ROBERTSON, 
Convener.

BRIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAR 1895. 13 

BEIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAE 1895. 

(By the Rev. P. THOMSON, B.D., Dunning.) 

ALL loyal sons of the Church of Scotland have good cause to remember with 
lively gratitude 1895 as the year during which the Disestablishment move 
ment received a substantial check. The danger had been great ; the crisis, if not 
acute, had been sufficiently severe. Although Sir George Trevelyan announced 
on behalf of the Government that they had no Disestablishment Bill of their own, 
yet it was well known that they were prepared, on opportunity offering, to pro 
ceed to settle the question on the lines of the Bill introduced by Sir Charles 
Cameron, with all its unmitigated injustice, false hopes, and delusive bribes. 
Hostility to the Church was as bitter as ever, the only thing wanting was time to 
give legislative effect to it. 

In these circumstances, wisely guided by Lord Balfour of Burleigh and the 
Committee over which he so ably presides, the Church, with fresh and determined 
effort, set herself to the work of endeavouring to perfect Organisation for Defence 
in every parish. As formerly, the system of defence was of a threefold nature- 
embracing Deputy Work, Publications, and illustrated Lectures. And there is 
abundant evidence of each of these methods having done a vast amount of good in 
stimulating the spirit of true churchmanship, and in bringing home to the people 
the magnitude of the interests at stake. 

While the Church was thus concerned and thus occupied, there came a welcome 
clearing of the air by means of the General Election the result of which was the 
"discomfiture" of the Rosebery Government, including the significant defeat of 
Sir Charles Cameron, and of Mr. Stephen Williamson, who had aided and abetted 
him in his Disestablishment tactics with a zeal worthy of a better cause. Knowing 
as we do the origin and nature of the influences against us, it would be too much 
to expect that Disestablishment will now be dropped. Nevertheless, the outlook 
is decidedly brighter. The battle is meanwhile over, and victory so far is with 
the cause of the Church. It will be her duty, now, earnestly to see to it that she 
uses well the fruits of her victory the opportunity she has gained. Freed from 
the necessity of engaging in political encounter for the turmoil of which she has 
no taste, but from which she must not for a single moment shrink when duty 
summons she will now be able to give herself with all her might to her own 
proper work. This she ought to do not boastfully, but humbly, prayerfully, 
watchfully. From the highest point of view, the new turn of affairs disclosed by 
1895 has only added to our Church s responsibilities responsibilities which, with 
the help of her living Head, it becomes her to give all her energies faithfully to 
discharge. 

The Church did honour to herself by calling to preside over last General 
Assembly the Rev. Dr. Donald Macleod, of the Park Church, Glasgow, well 
known in literary circles as the able and distinguished editor of Good Words. 
All the duties of the Chair he discharged in a manner that commanded universal 
admiration. The Address with which he closed the Assembly was one displaying 
ripe wisdom and great eloquence. Under the title Lines of Progress, Past, 
Present, and Future, it has since been published, and, treating as it does of sub 
jects vital to the Church s well-being, it ought to find a place in every home. 

With an ability and a geniality with which the experience of two preceding 
years made the Church happily familiar, the Most Hon. the Marquis of Breadal- 
bane again discharged the duties of Her Majesty s Representative. The residence 
of His Grace and the Marchioness of Breadalbane at the ancient palace of Holy- 
rood was distinguished by much gracious hospitality ; while a most generous and 
helpful interest was taken by them in the various public and charitable institu 
tions of Edinburgh. 



14 BRIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAR 1895. 

As compared with other Assemblies which one remembers, that of 1895 was 
quiet. But it was distinctly earnest, business-like, useful. For the first time in 
its venerable history, the House, by its own Act, imposed on those who were to 
take part in its debates a time limit as to speeches, certain obviously necessary 
exceptions being made. The "innovation" worked admirably. The number of 
speakers was advantageously increased ; while the quality of the speaking quite 
reached former high levels of excellence. 

Cases of discipline in recent years have been few, but this year, unfortunately, 
two ministers had charges of drunkenness proved against them, and both were 
deposed from the office of the holy ministry. 

Among the Acts passed by the Assembly, one of much importance is an Over 
ture and Interim Act on Education of Students preparing to enter the Divinity 
Hall, the substance of which will be found at p. 30 of this book. 

The Reports given in by the various Committees were, on the whole, satisfactory. 
They showed much excellent work done, pointed out the need for more to be 
done, and suggested to the members and adherents of the Church abundant oppor 
tunities for the doing of it. Mr. Campbell of Stracathro, M.P., Convener of the 
Committee on Statistics, was able to report the number of communicants as 
620,376, being an increase of 7965 over the year 1894. The Christian liberality 
of the Church, i.e. the voluntary contributions of members (excluding seat rents 
and Baird Trust or other grants), was 363.250 an increase of 3939 over the 
previous year. Sunday School work had been conducted in such a way as to 
show progress all along the line. The number of schools was 2169, an increase 
of 28 ; scholars numbered 224,703, being about 4000 more than in 1894 ; while 
the teachers numbered 21,183, an increase of 431 over the previous year. Mr. 
Turnbull Smith received the well-earned thanks of the Assembly on retiring from 
the Convenership of the Sunday School Committee. The Rev. John Smith, B.D., 
Partick, was appointed to take his place ; Mr. A. M. Williams, Glasgow, to be 
Vice-Convener. The Education Committee s Report, given in by the New Convener, 
Dr. Patrick, showed that the interests of the Church as regards the education of 
the future teachers of our public schools were being carefully and ably guarded. 

Under the able Convenership of the Moderator, the Home Mission had made 
encouraging progress. Ministers and missionaries doing work in connection 
with the Mission were no fewer than 198, the largest number ever reported. 
The fact that the Home Mission furnishes one-eighth of the services conducted 
by the Church throughout Scotland, is enough to show what an irresistible 
claim it has upon the liberality of the members of the Church. One of the 
best speeches of the Assembly was that of the Rev. A. Wallace Williamson in 
moving the adoption of the Committee s Report. The work of Dr. Marshall 
Lang and of Mr. Wilson of St. Michael s, Edinburgh the General Assembly s 
lecturers on Pastoral Theology was most warmly commended by Professor Flint, 
who, on rising in his place in the House for the first time after an absence of 
several years, received quite an ovation. Members of the Church owe a deep 
debt of gratitude to the Women s Association for Home Missions, presided over 
by Mrs. Gloag. Its object is " to unite the women of the Church on behalf of 
Home Missions, and particularly to help in providing, for populous and necessitous 
parishes, the services of Deaconesses or other trained and qualified women 
workers." For several years past, a speech from Dr. Marshall Lang, when giving 
in the report of The Commission on the Religious Condition of the People, has been 
looked forward to as one of the features of the General Assembly. In 1895 no 
one was disappointed. His address was all that could be desired earnest, com 
prehensive, deeply interesting. Another year will complete the Commissioners 
labours, and to next Assembly will be submitted the recommendations which 
their carefully acquired experience suggests. The Endowment Committee s Report 
showed five new parishes erected since last Assembly, the total number of new 
parishes being now 392. The stipends for these are secured by a total capital

of 1,427,000, which, with the value of the Church fabrics (over 1,000,000), gives 
a sum of 2,500,000 as having been invested during the past forty-nine years 
in making permanent provision for the religious wants of the people. 

The day given to Foreign Missions was of great interest. With much thankful 
ness the devoted Convener, Dr. M Murtrie, was able to report that the debt of 8617 
in 1893, and the deficit of 2344 in 1894 in all 10,961, was completely wiped 
out. During the year the income was 24,754, the largest ever recorded. The 
Assembly, with one voice, said there must be no more debt. To secure this, 
retrenchment in work, with reduction of certain missionaries salaries, had been 
suggested. The feeling of the House was wholly against this, it being urged that 
what was wanted was a stronger missionary spirit in the Church given this, 
then, without doubt, questions of debt and retrenchment would cease to trouble. 
A reference to the Foreign Mission Day would be most incomplete if it did not 
touch on the able, earnest, and stirring addresses of our missionaries home on 
furlough : the Revs. A. B. Wann, B.D., Calcutta ; Wm. Walker, B.D., of Chamba ; 
J. A. Graham, M.A., of Kalimpong ; Dr. H. E. Scott of Domasi, all spoke admir 
ably and made a deep impression. The Jeurish Mission is in a satisfactory state 
as regards funds, and as regards work and results. The Mission to the Jews in 
Glasgow, hitherto carried on by a local Committee, is now to be worked as a 
station under the General Assembly s Committee. Dr. M Adam Muir, on behalf 
of the Colonial Committee, had much of an encouraging nature to report. Aid had 
been given to evangelical work in many colonies and dependencies where it was 
greatly needed, and where it was greatly appreciated. 

Professor Charteris, who, for many years, so nobly inspired and guided the 
doings of the Committee on Life and Work, having recently retired from the Con- 
venership, the Rev. Wm. Robertson, M.A., of Coltness, his successor, gave in his 
first report. A most favourable record was he able to present. Nothing could 
be more gratifying than the remarkable progress of the Woman s Guild an 
institution which has done very much to stimulate and to develop every kind of 
good work in our parishes. Twenty-one Deaconesses are now actively employed 
at home or abroad. The Deaconess House is full ; and the Lady Grisell Baillie 
Mi innrial Hospital is a great strength to it. The Young Men s Guild shows signs 
of increasing prosperity. The Annual Conference at Paisley was a great success ; 
the speeches of Mr. Renshaw, M.P., Sir John Stirling Maxwell, M.P., Sir 
Charles Dalrymple, M.P., Professor Charteris, and Mr. Graham the Guild s 
devoted missionary combining to make it memorable. In connection with 
Deputations to Fisher Folks, Mission Weeks, and the Welfare of Farm Servants, 
encouraging work has been done. The various Guild Text-Books have attained 
a wide popularity and are highly useful, while the Guild Competitions are taken 
part in by ever-increasing numbers. 

In connection with Temperance work, the Rev. James Paton, B. A., of St. Paul s, 
Glasgow, gave in his first Report as Convener of the General Assembly s Committee 
his speech in moving the adoption of the Report being of a high order. The 
Bishop of Chester was introduced, and explained his scheme ; while Dr. Kankin 
of Muthill also contributed to the debate. 

The authorised Publications of the Church, viz. : the Mission Record, Life 
and Work, Morning Rays, and the Sunday School Magazine, continue to be 
ably edited, and have, on the whole, a large circulation. 

Tliere is about to be opened in George Square, Edinburgh, a House of Residence 
for Students of Divinity an institution which cannot fail to be productive of 
much good. 

During the year there have been several important changes in the professoriate 
of the Scottish universities, the following being of special interest to the members 
of the Church. Dr. Alexander Stewart, towards the end of 1894, became Principal 
of St. Mary s College, St. Andrews. The Chair of Theology in Aberdeen vacated 
by Principal Stewart is now ably filled by the Rev. W. P. Paterson, B.D., formerly 



16 BRIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAR 1895. 

minister of Crieff. Professor Kennedy, D.D., late of the Hebrew Chair in Aberdeen, 
has been most worthily promoted to the Hebrew Chair in Edinburgh made vacant 
by the lamented death of Professor Dobie. The Rev. W. P. Dickson, D. D. a 
man of ripe learning and scholarship, has retired from the Chair of Divinity in 
Glasgow, and has been succeeded by the Rev. Dr. Win. Hastie, one of the ablest 
men in the Church while the scholarly minister of Bourtie, Dr. W. L. Davidson, 
has just been made Professor of Logic in his Alma Mater, the University of 
Aberdeen. 

During the past twelvemonths the Church s losses through death have been many 
and severe. On our African Mission a terrible blow fell when, at the early age of 
thirty-three, there died at Blantyre Dr. W. A. Scott, one of the noblest and best 
equipped of missionaries. Increasing the blow s severity there closely followed 
the death of Mrs. David Clement Scott, who did so much to sustain her husband 
throughout many years of hard missionary toil. Ere the close of 1894 the Church 
became poorer through the loss of the Very Reverend George Hutchison, D.D., of 
Banchory-Ternan Moderator in the jubilee year an accomplished scholar, a 
devoted minister, a fearless defender of the National Church. Further losses were 
sustained in the deaths of the Revs. Hugh Fraser of Fearn ; Daniel Munro of 
Insh ; Thomas Wilson, M.A., of Lesmahagow ; George Fairbairn of Monquhitter ; 
R. E. Murray of New Cumnock a scholarly man, a faithful pastor, true to the 
Church in time of trial, either " the first or second minister ordained to a parish 
where the minister had seceded in 1843" ; and, on the last day of the year, 
William Bennie an energetic and successful minister, of whose excellent work 
in Kelvinhaugh the writer of these lines (who succeeded him there) had most 
pleasant proof, and whose ministry in Bathgate for twenty-three years was con 
spicuously fruitful. 

Among those gone from us since 1895 began are the Revs. John Barnett of 
Kilchonan ; William Cameron, the beloved minister of Lochbroom, at the very 
venerable age of ninety-two ; Andrew Rankin, assistant in Canongate, in sad and 
touching family circumstances ; David Winter, M.A., of Auchtergaven, a man of 
vigorous and independent mind, a pastor devoted to his work and beloved by his 
people ; Robert M Cunn of Nova Scotia, laborious and successful. The Church could 
ill afford to lose such a man as J. R. Macduff, D.D., formerly of Kettins, St. Madoes, 
and Sandyford, a preacher of singular power and popularity, a scholar refined and 
cultured, a writer of devotional and other works which have had a circulation 
almost world-wide. She sincerely mourns, too, Robert Milne, D.D., of West 
Parish, Perth, able, wise, scholarly, beloved by his congregation, and respected by 
all classes in the community. Aberdeenshire had few more active ministers than 
John Watson Leith, B.D., who died at Old Meldrum Manse in April last ; or 
than John Russell, M.A., of Leslie, who, about the same time, entered into rest. 
There have gone from us, too, A. W. Brown, formerly of the East Parish, Aberdeen ; 
A. M. Stewart of Inverchaolain, a minister abundant in labours ; William Ritchie, 
D.D., the venerable minister of Longforgan, to whom, among other services, the 
General Assembly owes the institution of one of its most important committees 
that on Sunday Schools ; John Falconer, M.A., New Byth, a true man and faithful 
minister; J. MacGeoch of the High Church, Kilmarnock ; John Mitchell, M.A., 
of St. Fergus, long clerk to the important Synod of Aberdeen ; Dr. Cock of 
Rathen, a man highly esteemed ; J. B. Haxton, formerly of Sinclairtown ; John 
Glendinning Robertson, B.D., of Inverkeithing, genial and scholarly, regretted by 
many, and not least by his contemporaries at the Edinburgh Divinity Hall 1868- 
70 ; and James Ledingham, M.A., for thirty years the respected minister of 
Gamrie. John Stuart Blackie, to whom we owe a valuable Travelling Scholarship 
for Divinity Students, was not a member of the Church of Scotland, but he dearly 
loved our Church and country. By his death in the spring of the year there has 
gone from our midst the most unique and picturesque personality among Scotsmen 
of this generation a man whose like we cannot expect to see again. 



BKIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAR 1895. 17 

Contributions to literature by ministers and leading members of the Church 
have been slightly more numerous than in former years. From Professor Flint 
came Socialism a work distinguished by comprehensiveness of view, thoroughness 
of grasp, force of reasoning, lucidity of style, and all those qualities that have 
given him as a thinker and writer a world-wide reputation. To the textual litera 
ture of the Bible there has been added The Greek Tenses in the New Testament ; 
Their Bearing on its Accurate Interpretation, by the Rev. P. Thomson, B.C., 
Dunning. Completing a series of introductions to the books of the New 
Testament, Dr. Gloag has published a work entitled Introduction to the Synoptic 
Gospels, which possesses all the excellences of the other writings of that distin 
guished exegete. The Foundations of Belief, by the Right Hon. Arthur James 
Balfour distinguished alike as scholar, philosopher, statesman is a volume of 
no ordinary importance and value. From the very busy pen of A. K. H. B. we 
have Scant Andrews and Elsewhere, also Occasional and Immemorial Days works 
possessing all the usual characteristics of the writings of this well-known author. 
The Rev. W. S. Bruce, M.A., of Banff, has given us a fresh and most interesting 
volume in The Ethics of the Old Testament. The literature of religion and 
philosophy has been enriched by an excellent English translation of Hegel s 
Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion : together with a Work on the Proofs of 
the Existence of God, by the Rev. E. B. Speirs, B. D., Glendevon, and J. Burdon 
Sanderson. The Brotherhood of Mankind is the title of a very able and 
luminous work by the Rev. J. Howard Crawford, minister of Abercoru. 
From the Rev. Duncan Campbell, B. D., of St. Matthew s, Edinburgh, we have 
a most helpful book The Roll-Gall of Faith, and other Sermons; while 
from the Rev. George Milligan, B. D. , formerly of St. Matthew s and now of 
Caputh, we have a volume of discourses on The Lord s Prayer, written in a clear 
style and full of good teaching. Am 1 my Brother s Keeper, and other Sermons, 
has been published by an experienced minister, the Rev. Thomas Somerville, M.A., 
of Blackfriars, Glasgow. Other books to be noticed are : John : The Baptist ; 
Fore-runner ; and Martyr, by the Rev. J. Elder Cummiug, D.D., author of many 
works of a like helpful nature ; James Inwick : Ploughman and Elder (2nd 
edition), by P. Hay Hunter of Yester a capital story from every point of view 
ably written in the best of Scotch ; Digest of Church Law (second edition), by 
Dr. Mair of Earlston, most complete and accurate, simply indispensable ; Bute 
in Olden Times (vol. ii. ), by Rev. J. K. Hewison, M.A., Rothesay of much 
value, and showing great research. Family Prayers Compiled from Various 
Sources, by A. M. C. S. ; A Pilgrimage to Palestine, by the Rev. James Smith, 
B.D., Aberdeen; Forms of Service for Baptism, Marriage, Burial of the Dead, 
and the Ordination of Elders, by Dr. Forsyth, London ; Letters and Sketches 
from the New Hebrides, edited by Rev. Jas. Paton, Glasgow ; Poems of Nature 
and Life, by David R. Williamson, Kirkmaiden. Among booklets and 
pamphlets, we have observed the following : Parish Councils and the Church 
of Scotland, able and timely, by Rev. John Kerr, M.A., Dirleton ; The Truth 
Regarding Baptism, by Rev. D. Fraser ; The Empire, the Nation, and the 
Church, by Rev. M. MacLellau, Glasgow ; A Simple Catechism for use in 
Sunday Schools and Families, by W. H. Gray, D.D., Liberton ; Simple 
Lessons about Baptism, by John Alison, D.D. ; Simple Notes on the Sacrament 
of the Lord s Supper, by Rev. J. H. M Culloch, B.D., Leith ; Papal Claims and 
Parliamentary Concessions to the Papacy, by James A. Campbell, M.P. In 
addition to the address of the Moderator, there have emanated, more or less 
directly, from the Church s officials or from committees of the Church 
The Defence of the Church of Scotland: Facts, Arguments, and Answers to 
Opponents, by the Church Interests Committee ; One Hundred short Prayers for 
Family Worship, by the Church of Scotland s Committee on Aids to Devotion 
(Rev. John Paton, Dumfries, being Convener) ; Our Lord s Teaching, by Rev. Dr. 
Robertson, Whittingehame, and The English Bible, by Rev. George Milligan, B.D.,

18 BRIEF SKETCH OF THE YEAR 1895. 

Caputh botli ably executed, and forming the latest additions to the valuable series 
of Guild Text-Books. There has been announced the first issue of The Guild 
Library, (i.e. the Guild Text-books enlarged and in larger type) and two excellent 
volumes -A Handbook of Christian Evidences, by Principal Stewart, D.D., and 
The Religions of the World, by Principal Grant have just appeared. 

Any record of 1895 would be manifestly incomplete which did not refer to au 
event of outstanding interest to the Scottish people. On the 18th June, the new 
Parish Church of Crathie the foundation stone of which was laid amid surround 
ings of Royal favour on llth September 1893, was solemnly dedicated to the 
service of God, in presence of the Queen and many members of the Royal Family. 
The new building occupies the site of the old one, round which had gathered for 
the Queen and her subjects so many tender memories. In the manner in which 
Her Majesty has associated herself with her people in the erection of this House 
of God, new proof has been furnished, were proof required, of her sincere and 
lasting love for the National Church of Scotland.

THE COUETS OF THE CHURCH. 

Contributed by the late Rev. K. M. PHIN, D.D., Edinburgh., (1886), and revised 
(1S95) by tlie Rev. WM. HAIR, U.D., Earlston. 

r~PHE following is virtually an abridgment of what has been stated by Principal 
-L Hill ( View of the Constitution of the Church of Scotland) and by Dr. Cook 
of Haddington (Styles, &c. ) 

1. KIRK-SESSIONS. 

The lowest judicatory in the Church of Scotland is the kirk-session, composed 
of the minister (or, in collegiate charges, ministers) of the parish, who is officially 
moderator, and of ruling elders. Additional elders are elected by the session. 
After their election has been agreed upon, their names are read from the pulpit, in 
a paper called an edict, appointing a time, at the distance of not less than ten days, 
for their ordination or admission. If no member of the congregation offers any 
objection, or if the session finds the objections that are offered unfounded, and if 
there is no appeal, the minister proceeds in face of the congregation to ordain the 
new elders ; or if they have been already ordained, simply to admit them ; after 
which they subscribe their assent to the Confession of Faith. The session is legally 
convened when summoned by the moderator, either from the pulpit, or by individual 
citation of the members ; but it cannot proceed to business unless the minister of 
the parish, or some other minister acting by appointment of the presbytery, con 
stitutes the meeting by prayer and presides during its deliberations. While the 
minister in his personal capacity conducts the public worship of God and administers 
the sacraments, it is the business of the session to assist him in superintending 
the social, moral, and religions condition of the people under his charge, to settle 
the time for dispensing the ordinances of religion in the parish, to judge of the 
fitness of parishioners who desire to enjoy the privileges of Church membership, 
to exercise discipline on those guilty of scandalous offences, and to grant certificates 
to parties removing from the parish. 

2. PRESBYTERIES. 

As the General Assembly has the power of disjoining and erecting presbyteries 
at its pleasure, their bounds may be altered or their number increased according 
to the change of circumstances. At present there are eighty-four presbyteries in 
the Church of Scotland. A presbytery consists of the ministers of all the parishes 
in a specified district, of the professors of divinity, if they be ministers, in any 
university situated within that district, and of one elder sent from every kirk- 
session ; so that, unless there be collegiate charges or a university within the 
bounds, the number of ministers and of elders in any meeting of presbytery 
should be equal. Each presbytery elects a moderator (who is a minister), a clerk, 
and an officer. Any complaint against the doctrine or conduct of a minister must 
be dealt with by a presbytery and not by a kirk-session. 

3. PROVINCIAL SYNODS. 

Three or more presbyteries compose a provincial synod. There are at present 
sixteen synods in the Church, most of which meet twice a year. All ministers 
and elders who are members of the presbyteries within the bounds are also 



20 THE COUKTS OF THE CHtJECH. 

members of the synod. Neighbouring synods correspond with one another by 
sending to each stated meeting a minister and an elder, who at that meeting have 
all the privileges of ordinary members of the synod to which they are sent. At 
every meeting of the synod a moderator, who is a minister, is elected ; and the 
synod has its own clerk and officer. 

4. THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. 

The General Assembly consists of ministers and elders elected by the several 
presbyteries of the Church in proportion ] to the number of their respective 
members ; of two elders elected by the Town Council of Edinburgh ; of one 
elder elected by each royal burgh other than the metropolis ; of a representative, 
who may be either a minister or an elder, elected by the senate of each of the four 
Scottish universities ; and of a minister and an elder elected by the Church in 
India. Every elder who does not hold the office of a theological teacher in one 
of the Scottish universities must be certified as a bond-fide acting elder in a con 
gregation and kirk-session. The Church of Scotland s right to meet in General 
Assembly, whenever circumstances render a meeting desirable, was recognised 
by the Act of the Scottish Parliament in 1592, which declared it to be lawful to 
the Kirk and ministers every year at the least and oftener pro re natd, as occasion 
and necessity shall require, to hold General Assemblies. In accordance with this 
statute, which was ratified by the Treaty of Union, the practice is that a General 
Assembly is annually convened in Edinburgh in May, and sits ten lawful days. 
The time and place of meeting are decided by an Act passed at the last diet of the 
previous Assembly, and authoritatively intimated by the Moderator. After this 
the Lord High Commissioner, on the part of the Sovereign, makes a similar in 
timation. On the day and at the place thus determined, a sermon is preached "in 
the High Kirk " by the Moderator of the last Assembly, who announces, at the 
conclusion of public worship, that the supreme ecclesiastical court is about to 
assemble in its place of meeting, and afterwards he there opens the meeting with 
prayer. The clerks having previously made up a roll of members from commissions 
which have been lodged with them in due form, one of the ministers on that roll is 
then chosen Moderator. Thereafter, the Lord High Commissioner, appointed to 
represent the royal person in the General Assembly, presents his commission, and 
subsequently, a letter from the Sovereign, which documents, with the Assembly s 
sanction, are read by the principal clerk and ordered to be recorded. The Com 
missioner next addresses the Assembly from the throne which he occupies ; and the 
Moderator, in their name, replies to the speech of His Grace. Several Committees 
are then named, through one or other of which all the business to be transacted by 
the Assembly must be transmitted. That business may be briefly described as 
consisting of (1) Complaints or appeals or petitions against decisions of presbyteries 
or synods ; (2) Overtures (i.e. proposals) or petitions that certain things should be 
done by the Assembly, either to effect changes in the law or practice of the Church, 
or to protect her from danger, or to increase her usefulness, or to promote the cause 
of Christ at home or abroad ; (3) Reports from standing Committees appointed 
by the last Assembly to prosecute missions, and for other purposes ; (4) Reports 
from Committees nominated by the Assembly itself to deal with matters remitted 
to them. Under the first of these heads are included all judicial cases affecting 
the character and status of ministers, or elders, or licentiates, or Church members, 
and all disputes about the filling up of charges in vacant parishes or congregations. 
The overtures referred to under the second head cannot lead to an immediate 
change in any standing law of the Church ; but, according to the Barrier Act, the 
proposed change after being approved of by the Assembly must be remitted to the 
presbyteries of the Church for their consideration, and the approval of a majority 

3 One minister for every four or part of four and one elder for every six or part of six 
ministers (1893). 



THE COUKTS OF THE CHUECH. 21 

of their number must be reported to the next Assembly and confirmed by a vote 
of that court. This is an important check to rash legislation, as no Act can become 
a "standing law of the Church" till the mind of its office-bearers has been dis 
tinctly ascertained. In emergencies, the Assembly, however, claims the right to 
issue an "Interim Act" for regulating procedure till the next Assembly. When 
its business has been transacted, the Assembly is dissolved, first by the Moderator 
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Head of the Church, and then by the 
Lord High Commissioner in name of the Sovereign. 

Commission of Assembly. 

It may be impossible for the General Assembly to give full attention to all the 
questions brought before it, and circumstances may render a meeting of its 
members very desirable before another General Assembly is convened. With a 
view to such contingencies, each General Assembly nominates a commission con 
sisting of the Moderator and all the members, and of another minister in 
place of the Moderator ; and empowers them to dispose of every matter referred 
to them by the Assembly, and " to advert to the interest of the Church on every 
occasion, that the Church and present establishment thereof do not sufl er or 
sustain any prejudice which they can prevent." The Commissioners are authorised 
to meet on four specific days, 1 and ofteuer when and where they shall think fit, 
and to choose their own Moderator. The quorum is declared to be thirty-one, 
of whom twenty-one must be ministers. The Commissioners are accountable for 
all their actings to the next General Assembly, who may reverse their sentences, 
and find those who concurred in them censurable, if it shall appear that they have 
exceeded their powers by meddling with matters not referred to them, or that 
they have acted contrary to the constitution of the Church, and so as to prejudice 
its interests. The Commission is not a court of the Church but is a Commission 
appointed by the previous Assembly, and, beyond what has been committed to it 
by the Assembly, must not interfere either with the prerogatives of kirk-sessions, 
presbyteries, and synods, or with the right of the office-bearers and members of the 
Church to have all causes in which they are concerned cognosced by its courts. 

CONSTITUTION OF THE CHUECH. 

The constitution of the Church of Scotland is thoroughly popular. In the kirk- 
session the elders must always preponderate, even when there happen to be 
collegiate ministers. In presbyteries and synods the elders are as numerous 
as the ministers. In the General Assembly the ministers are the majority, but 
it is a representative court, and the majority of electors are elders. On every 
question, whether of doctrine, of discipline, or of worship, which comes before a 
presbytery, a synod, or an assembly, elders have the same right to speak and to 
vote as ministers. In several instances the General Assembly has elected as its 
Moderator a minister holding a commission, not as a ministerial member of a 
presbytery, but as a ruling elder, representing a presbytery or a royal burgh. 

Kirk -sessions, presbyteries, synods, and the General Assembly are all statutory 
coiirts of the realm of Scotland, the last of them being supreme. When they 
are duly constituted, their decisions in matters of discipline cannot be reviewed or 
interfered with by any civil court, though they happen to carry along with them 
civil effects. Of late years attempts have been occasionally made to induce the 
civil courts to set aside sentences of the courts of the Church regularly pronounced ; 
but this has been uniformly refused as ultra vires. 

The minutes of each subordinate Church judieatory are submitted to the imme 
diately superior court at stated times ; and it is competent to that court to review 



1 The first clay after the dissolution of the Assembly, the second Wednesday of August, 
the third Wednesday of November, and the first Wednesday of March, at 12 nooft

the proceedings tlms brought under its notice, to see if they are in conformity with 
the law and practice of the Church, and, when practicable, to put right anything 
that seems wrong. To the constitution of their National Church in which there 
is a singularly happy combination of what is best alike in Episcopacy and in 
Independency as much as to anything else, the Scottish people owe the high 
place among the nations of the earth which, with the Divine blessing, they have 
attained. 



POSITION AND PROGRESS OF THE CHUECH. 

1. CHURCH ACCOMMODATION. 

T)ARISHES, 1357 ; non-parochial churches, 207 ; preaching and mission stations, 
-L 170: total, 1734. During the last twenty-one years over 160,000 sittings have 
been added to church accommodation in connection with the Church of Scotland. 

2. CHURCH ENDOWMENTS. 

(1) From Teinds. 876 parishes, according to Parliamentary returns of 1874, 
received stipends, amounting in all (manses and glebes included) to 289,413. 
Since that date 272 parishes have received augmentations out of unexhausted 
teinds. On the other hand, however, the value of the teiuds has notably declined, 
and about 20 per cent must be deducted, so that the total revenue of the Church 
from this source may be stated as about 250,000. The unexhausted teinds, 
according to the latest return, amounted to about 129,000. 

(2) From the National Exchequer. 42 parishes, erected in 1826 to supply 
religious destitution in the Highlands and Islands, receive stipends of 120 each, 
in all 5040 ; and 190 parishes whose stipend is iinder 150 receive an average 
annual grant of 57 each, in all 12,000 : making the whole endowment from 
this source 17,040. N.B. This annual subsidy from the Exchequer is regarded 
as a partial equivalent for bishops rents and teinds formerly the property of the 
Church, and now received by the Crown. 

(3) From Burgh and other Local Funds. 41 parishes receive stipends amount 
ing in all to 16,266 ; and other parishes receive supplements to stipends amount 
ing in all to 7235, making a total revenue from this source of 23,501. 

(4) From Capital raised by tJie Church itself. Since 1845, 393 new parishes 
have a minimum stipend (including manse) of 120 each, making a total of over 
55,000. 

The entire endowments of the Church from all sources (exclusive of Church 
buildings) may thus be reckoned as fully 344,000. 

3. CHURCH MEMBERSHIP, ADHERENTS, ETC. 

In 1894 the number of communicants as returned to the General Assembly of 
1895 (1 non - reporting parish being reckoned stationary as to numbers) was 
620,375. Of these, 26,159 were reported as having been admitted during the 
year to the communion for the first time. Returns from 74 parishes where 
Gaelic is spoken show that, besides their membership, they had, in 1885, 10,486 
adherents above eighteen years of age. 457,356 persons communicated at least 
once during the year 1894. The number reported as admitted during 1894 by 
baptism was 39,874. 9339 elders are reported, as compared with 9126 in the 
previous year. There are 2169 Sunday Schools, taught by 21,183 teachers ; 
number of scholars, 224,703 ; advanced scholars, 47,392 ; total, 272,095. There 
is an increase of 3837 in the number of ordinary scholars as compared with 1893. 

According to returns made to the General Assembly in 1877 by 700 parishes, 
there were at that time 1356 paid lay-workers and 22,359 unpaid lay-workers 



POSITION AND PROGRESS OF THE CHURCH. 23 

in the Church. Even then the number must have been very greatly in excess of 
what was only partially reported, and during the intervening years a large further 
increase may be assumed. 

In 1873 the number of communicants as returned to Parlia 
ment in 1874 was 460,464 

In 1878 the number as returned to Parliament in 1879 was . 515,786 
In 1883 the number as returned to the General Assembly of 

1884 (105 non-reporting parishes being reckoned as having 
neither increased or decreased since previous returns) was 543,969 

In 1884 the number as returned to the General Assembly of 

1885 was 555,622 

In 1885 the number as returned was ..... 564,435 

In 1886 the number as returned was ..... 571,029 

In 1887 the number as returned was ..... 579,002 

In 1888 the number as returned was ..... 581,568 

In 1889 the number as returned was ..... 587,954 

In 1890 the number as returned was ..... 593,393 

In 1891 the number as returned was ..... 599,531 

In 1892 the number as returned was ..... 604,984 

In 1893 the number as returned was ..... 612,411 

In 1894 the number as returned was ..... 620,376 

It thus appears that during twenty-one years the total increase of communicants 
has been 159,912, being an average increase of about 7600 per annum. When it 
is remembered, moreover, that within this period (viz. in 1874) the election of 
ministers became, through the abolition of patronage, vested in the membership 
of the Church, and that in consequence an additional motive for strictness in the 
annual purging of communion rolls came into existence, it may be safely inferred 
that the real increase is even greater than appears. 

Taking the figures as they stand, however, the increase during the past twenty- 
one years has been at the rate of 30 per cent, or 1 47 per cent each year. Between 
1871 and 1891 the population of Scotland increased at the rate of 20 per cent, 
being I OO per cent each year. It thus appears that during the last twenty-one 
years the growth of membership has been largely above the growth of population. 
If the membership of the Church during that period had increased merely in 
proportion to the growth of population, the increase of communicants would have 
been not 159,912 but only 83,440 ; i.e. during twenty- one years 61, 080 communi 
cants (representing a population several times that number) have either been 
reclaimed from the ranks of those hitherto unconnected with any Church, thus 
indicating the zeal and efficiency of the Church of Scotland as a great home 
missionary institution, or have been attracted to the Church from other religious 
denominations, thus indicating its increasing popularity in the Christian com 
munity. To both causes combined the increase may doubtless be ascribed. 

The total amount of population adhering to the Church of Scotland as repre 
sented by the above 620,376 communicants must to a certain extent be matter 
of conjecture; and it is much to be. regretted that the opposition of Noncon 
formist Church Courts prevented the Government which was in office in 1891 
from including an ecclesiastical connection column in the Census-Schedule of that 
year. An approximate estimate may be obtained from the Registrar-General s 
recent returns of marriage-celebrations, the percentage of which for the year 1892 
was as follows : Church of Scotland, 45 86 ; Free Church, 20 12 ; U.P. Church, 
11-53 ; R.C. Church, 9 82 ; Episcopal Church, 2 84 ; other denominations, 6 82 ; 
irregular marriages, 2 99. From these statistics it appears that the Church of 
Scotland performs 52 66 of the marriages among the Protestant population. In 
the rural districts taken alone the proportion is much higher. If the marriage 
statistics furnish a fairly approximate index of church connection, the population

adhering to the Church of Scotland and availing itself of her ministrations, is con 
siderably greater than that adhering to all other Protestant denominations taken 
together. 

4. CHURCH LIBERALITY. 

During the six years from 1872 to 1877 inclusive the contributions of the con 
gregations of the Church for parochial, missionary, and charitable purposes 
amounted to a total of 1,925,776. During the following six years ending 1883 
the total amount was 2,194,309. In 1884 the amount was 366,430 ; in 1885, 
374,576 ; in 1886, 407,212 ; in 1887, 385,506 ; in 1888, 368,590 ; in 1889, 
419,295 ; in 1890, 428,558 ; in 1891, 441,828 ; in 1892, 426,577 ; in 1893, 
425,414 ; in 1894, 429,851 : 8 : 5. Adding to these united sums the half million 
given by Mr. Baird in 1873, we have a total of 9,093,922 contributed during the 
last twenty-two years. 

It is to be noted that in the above amounts neither Government grants, interest 
on capital, school fees, nor grants from Baird Trust and Ferguson Bequest are 
included ; and this must be taken into consideration when the total sums thus 
constituted are compared with the total Church incomes of other denominations. 

5. CHURCH WORK. 

During recent years, besides increased congregational and parochial activity, 
which the Committee on Christian Life and Work (appointed in 1869) has greatly 
stimulated, the work of the Church at large has been much extended. Details 
will be found in a subsequent portion of this Year- Book ; but here it may be 
stated that within the last twenty-two years the Home and Foreign Mission Schemes 
have doubled their ordinary incomes ; and the same period has witnessed the 
building of over 280 new churches and the endowment of 260 new parishes ; the 
establishment of African and Chinese Missions ; the commencement of a Uni 
versities Foreign Mission and of a Jewish Medical Mission ; the institution of 
the Small Livings Augmentation Scheme and of the Aged and Infirm Ministers 
Fund ; the formation of the Young Men s Guild, of the Woman s Guild, and of 
the Women-Workers Guild ; the establishment of a Women-Workers Training 
Home ; the institution of the office of Deaconess in the Church ; and the circula 
tion in more than 100,000 homes of the parochial magazine Life and Work. 



DEACONESS INSTITUTION AND TRAINING HOME. 

(By Miss ALICE MAUD MAXWELL, Deaconess, Superintendent.) 

THE Committee on Christian Life and Work, acting under authority of the 
General Assembly, opened this Institution in 1887, and our experience in 
connection with it has been full of encouragement. Those branches of the work 
which were first started have grown and are being consolidated, while various 
new branches have developed. The general interest in the Scheme has also 
increased with the better comprehension of its aims, and we feel that we may 
now look with confidence for that support from all the members of our 
Church to which we lay claim on the ground of our being one of the Church s 
recognised organisations. 

During the spring of 1893 the project, contemplated from the beginning of the 
work, namely that of purchasing a suitable home, became possible through 
the receipt of a legacy of 1000 for that purpose left by the first Deaconess of the 
Church the late Lady Grisell Baillie. The remainder had been raised by sub 
scription some time before. The house, 27 George Square, Edinburgh, was 
acquired, and has proved most suitable and convenient in every way. 



DEACONESS INSTITUTION AND TRAINING HOME. 25 

It seems scarcely necessary to point out the need for such institutions to train 
and qualify those who would do good work either at home or abroad ; but it 
should be borne in mind that Edinburgh is merely the headquarters where ladies 
are to be trained, and that when trained, if they do not go abroad, they are ex 
pected to go and work elsewhere throughout the country, under the direction of 
ministers and kirk-sessions of parishes. 

There are numerous parishes with mines, quarries, factories, etc., drawing 
together a poor hard-working population, where it has already been found helpful 
both to minister and people to have a Christian lady, trained, experienced, and 
devoted, to live and work among the people, helping them for Christ s sake. Or 
when an outbreak of sickness occurs among such a population what a boon it 
would be to have a Christian woman thoroughly trained in nursing available in 
the emergency. Constant applications are received from the ministers of our 
Church, proving that there is a felt need for such trained women workers in our 
parishes at home. 

The Indian Zenanas too are now open to our lady missionaries, and there is an 
increasing readiness 011 the part of the Home Church to send out and maintain 
such missionaries. But once on the mission-field, they must begin work more or 
less immediately, and those already there have but little time to train their less 
experienced helpers. What an advantage, then, to have an Institution where 
ladies, desirous of going to the mission-field, may receive adequate training, and 
have their fitness for the work tested before they go. We therefore believe our 
Institution, alike by its training and its testing, to be an additional strength to 
both our Home and our Foreign Missions. 

The object of the Home is twofold : (1) That of receiving women who, being 
able to make Christian work the chief object of their lives, desire to be trained 
and set apart as Deaconesses. These, when they have fulfilled the condition 
laid down by the General Assembly of having passed through two years training 
and service in connection with our Home in Edinburgh, may apply to be set 
apart as Deaconesses by their kirk-sessions and presbyteries, and will then, if 
they remain in connection with the Home, be expected to go to any part of 
Scotland where they may be required, and there to work under the supervision 
of minister and kirk-session. 1 

(2) That of receiving, for instruction and training in various methods of 
Christian work, ladies who, though not wishing to become Deaconesses, desire to 
be competent Christian workers. In Christian work, as in other things, experi 
ence may indeed teach, through experiments that are often failures ; but how 
very much is gained when methods that have been tried and proved are learned 
that they may be carried away and adapted in necessary details to the circum 
stances of different localities, without the otherwise unavoidable loss of time and 
strength, and it may be of heart also. 

Some of those who have completed their two years training in this Home and 
in the Deaconess Hospital, have been set apart as Deaconesses, and are now at 
work in different parishes as recognised agents of the Church. Others who have 
in the past resided for a shorter period, have now returned to their own parishes, 
and are there working out the methods learned here ; while several have been 
appointed by the Church of Scotland Women s Association for Foreign Missions, 
and are now doing good work in the Foreign Mission field. 

The training of our Institution may be described as threefold, viz. 

1st. Class Instruction. 

2nd. Practical Training in Home Mission Work. 

3rd. Practical Training in Sick-Nursing. 

1 It should be here mentioned that the office of Deaconess may be obtained in another 
way, the Regulations of the Assembly providing that ladies who have been known as 
Christian workers for sr.ven years may be set apart as Deaconesses without residence in the 



26 DEACONESS INSTITUTION AND TRAINING HOME. 

1st. CLASS INSTRUCTION. Classes are conducted hi connection with the Home 
in which by lectures and otherwise instruction is given in such subjects as (a) 
Scripture Knowledge ; (b) Church History ; (c) Principles and Methods of 
Mission Work, District Visiting, etc. ; (d) History and Methods of Missions to 
the Heathen. We are greatly indebted to the ministers and missionaries who 
have given to the residents and other members of our Classes the results of their 
ripe and varied experience in those lectures. The following is the course of study 
prescribed for Session 1895-96 : 

I. Lecturrg. 

1. A Course of Three Lectures on THE MEANS OF GRACE. 

2. A Course of Five Lectures on CHURCH HISTORY. 

3. A Course of Four Lectures on CHRISTIAN WORK. 

4. A Course of Four Lectures on HYMNOLOGY. 

II. Classes. 

1 . A Class for CONVERSATION ON BOOKS PREVIOUSLY READ. 

2. A Class for PREPARATION OF ADDRESSES FOR DISTRICT MEETINGS. 

3. A Class for SYSTEMATIC BIBLE INSTRUCTION. 

4. A Class for CLINICAL INSTRUCTION IN THE ART OF SICK NURSING. 

In addition to the above, by the kindness of the managers of the Edinburgh 
Royal Infirmary, residents in the Home have the privilege of attending the 
Lectures on Sick -Nursing delivered to the nurses and probationers in the 
Infirmary. 

2nd. PRACTICAL TRAINING IN HOME MISSION WORK. This is carried on in the 
mission -district connected with the Home. Residents are engaged regularly in 
house-to-house visitation, and take part in conducting various meetings in the 
Mission Hall, such as Evangelistic Meetings, Mothers Meetings, Temperance 
Society, Band of Hope, and Girls Sewing Class. St. Ninian s Mission Buildings, 
standing in the poorest and most central parts of the district, allow of this part 
of the training being carried on with every advantage. Stair or Kitchen 
Meetings are held in various houses, and our residents have been -assisted 
and guided in holding such meetings in their respective portions of the district. 
Visiting - Books, containing a record of visits paid and particulars of the 
various families visited, are carefully kept in a regular and systematic way 
by those who visit. The principal facts recorded in those books are engrossed 
iu a Central Book, which thus contains a history of each household. Once a 
fortnight the residents in the Home, together with other ladies living in Edinburgh 
who work as outside workers, meet and receive advice and direction as to 
difficult cases with which they may have met in their district work. 

3rd. PRACTICAL TRAINING IN SICK-NURSING. This part of the training is given 
in the Deaconess Hospital erected to the memory of Lady Grisell Baillie (our first 
Deaconess), and standing side by side with St. Ninian s Mission Buildings in the 
Pleasance. During this its first year much suffering has been relieved, while 
hands have learnt how to be tender and ready in easing pain with a skill which 
they will carry with them as Deaconesses and Christian Workers into the homes 
of the poor. A full account of the Hospital, together with its aims, is given 
elsewhere (see following article). 

^Applications from those desirous of being received for training should be sent 
to the Secretary of the Christian Life and Work Committee, 22 Queen Street, who 
will submit them to the Board of Management at the first meeting after they are 
received. The normal sum to be paid for board by residents is 1 per week or 
48 per year, but " The amount is in each case to be arranged by the Board of 
Management." Daughters of ministers may be received for six months or less on 
payment of a smaller sum, with a view to qualify themselves for work in their 

Training Home. Those will in most cases, though not necessarily, continue to reside and 
work in their own parishes. Eleven ladies have entered the Diaconate through this portal. 



THE LADY OUTSELL BAILLIE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. 27 

fathers parishes. A special form of application has been prepared for \ise in 
such cases. 

The following time-table will give an idea of the life and work of residents 
in the Home : 
A.M. 

8. Breakfast. 8.30. Morning Prayers. 9.30 to 10.30. Quiet hour for Bible Study. 
10.30. Writing up Visiting-Books ami Notes of Classes. 
P.M. 

12. Lecture, or Class. 1.15. Dinner. 2.30. District Visiting or Mothers Meeting 
during the afternoon. 6. Tea. Evening Meetings and Classes in the district on 
certain evenings. 9.30. Evening Prayers. 9.45. Supper. 

The keeping up of a cheerful home-life is aimed at in all the arrangements, and 
during the evenings which are spent at home there is reading aloud, working, etc., 
in the drawing-room. 

Sometimes those who are interested in our work here look beyond the present 
and put the question, " When Deaconesses are trained, what is the work which 
they are expected to do?" As this article is written with special regard to 
the Training Home, it is not the place to go into the details of their future work ; 
but the question may perhaps be answered generally somewhat as follows : The 
work of our Deaconesses will be to speak God s gospel in the mission-hall and 
in the poor man s home ; to tend the sick ; to soothe the suffering ; to comfort 
the sorrowful ; to reclaim the erring ; to feed and clothe the needy in the spirit 
of that sisterly charity that will not pauperise. 

All this is no easy matter. Training may help and guide in taking the first 
steps towards it, but the life s work, if it is to be to the glory of God and for the 
true helping of our poorer brothers and sisters, can only be carried through by 
a spirit of Christian devotion much given to prayer.

rpHE fact that this so far as we know is the first Hospital founded as an integral 
-L part of the organisation of a branch of the Protestant Church may justify a 
few descriptive words : a fuller account of its objects being contained in the Year 
Book for 1895. The Hospital is ancillary to the training of women to be fully 
qualified miuistrants to the ills that flesh is heir to. It is also a memorial of the 



28 THE LADY GEISELL BAILLIE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL. 

bright and saintly Lady Grisell Baillie, who was dedicated as the first Protestant 
Church Deaconess. It was erected without help from any fund, or trust, or 
collection, or corporation ; all the cost having been met by the personal contribu 
tions of willing friends ; and it was opened free of debt. 

The object of the Hospital is to afford training in sick-nursing to women who 
propose to take part in Home Mission work. It is no longer possible to regard 
any visitor who is ignorant of the art and science of nursing as fully equipped for 
her work in homes where poverty makes the burden of sickness so hard to bear. 
Sick-nursing is now an indispensable part of the training of a Home Mission visitor, 
and it is taught here. 

First of all, therefore, this Hospital is designed to complete the education of 
Christian workers, especially of Church Deaconesses. It is not our primary 
object to train a professional sick-nurse. At the same time, a year s experience 
has amply proved that we were right in expecting that a probationer who is 
trained in our wards will be as thoroughly qualified to be a sick-nurse as one who 
has spent the same time in a large hospital. Every probationer sees all that is 
done in the wards, learns to make the best of sometimes limited resources, and is 
thus fitted to minister to the poor in their own homes even more effectively than 
one who has been in a great infirmary. The nurse and the patient are in close 
relations with the medical officers, and there is no complication arising from 
clinical teaching of medical students. 

As regards the strictly professional side, therefore, it may be claimed that this 
Hospital offers advantages to any one seeking to be a nurse. The head of the 
nursing staff, Miss Pirrie, herself a Deaconess of the Church of Scotland, had a 
thorough and varied training, and had wide experience in England, Germany, 
and Ireland, before coming to us ; and it is due to her to say that she rejoices to 
give her life and services without accepting any salary. At the close of her first 
year of work she was unanimously invited to join the Governing Board. The 
skill of our physicians and surgeons is recognised and has already given wide 
repute to the Hospital. It is not possible to say how great a debt of gratitude we 
owe to them for their ungrudging devotion of time and care, and for their kindness 
to the poor invalids. It will not be thought invidious to name Drs. G. A. Gibson 
and Alexis Thomson as having chiefly borne the willing burden of daily service 
throughout the first year of our operations. Their colleagues have most faithfully 
seconded them. We may specially name the House Physician, Dr. Cattanach. 
We claim, therefore, a right to say to Scottish home workers for the Church 
whether they intend to be Deaconesses or not whether they intend to be 
professional nurses or not that they can acquire a training as thorough and 
valuable in this Hospital as in any other anywhere in the same time. Our 
certificate of fitness will not be regarded as inferior to any other. 

We are anxious to have some Deaconesses trained here who will make nursing 
the work of their lives. They will be a special subdivision of the Diaconate and 
be Deaconess Nurses. We expect also that some who have been elsewhere trained 
in nursing will seek enrolment in that band of deaconess-nurses or sick-irurses in 
the direct service of the Church of Christ. But others, who do not wish to occupy 
that professional position, are invited to receive training for a longer or shorter 
time. 

So much for the professional side. This Hospital, however, trains Christian 
visitors in more than mere nursing. They are trained to say a word in season to 
the sufferers in the wards ; and to help on the bodily cure by soothing the anxious 
spirit. They are of course taught to do this under the restraint of Christian 
common-sense, and with hearty horror of the meanness of ecclesiastical proselytising. 
Thus they learn how to unite care of the body with healing of the soul when 
engaged as parish deaconesses or as foreign missionaries. There have been already 
trained, missionaries to India and China, and to the Jews in Smyrna. The daily 
worship in the wards, and the special services on Sunday and on Wednesday have 



THE DEACONESS HOSPITAL, EDINBUEGH. 29 

been blessed to many patients who have of their own accord borne grateful testimony 
to the good they have received. 

Many kind friends have sent flowers, and fruit, and game, and food, and books, 
which have gladdened both nurses and patients. 

In order to make the Hospital a centre for direct training iu district - nursing, 
i.e. hi sick-visiting from house to house, an adjoining site has been acquired ; and 
upon it, as soon as funds are forthcoming, additional house-accommodation will be 
erected. The new building will also give much-needed new room for surgical 
treatment ; and moreover supply a few rooms for private patients. Will some 
one who reads this give us 3000, or a part of it, that what it is well to do may 
be done at once ? 

It has been found that the cost of a bed is a little under 40 a year, 800 
being the expenditure for a year on our nominally twenty beds (really twenty-two 
or twenty-four), which have been almost always full. In several instances a friend 
has undertaken to maintain " a bed " for a limited number of years ; one congrega 
tion and several members of another do the same ; several Branches of the Woman s 
Guild have undertaken to provide definite sums, in some cases combining to maintain 
a bed. For the support of this Hospital, as for that in Kalimpong, we look mainly 
to the branches of that large and growing Guild which will find it no burden, but 
a pleasure and privilege, to provide for the wants of poor sufferers in the slums 
of the capital of Scotland and on the slopes of the Himalayas.

I. THE MINISTRY. 
PKOCEDUEE TOWAKDS THE MINISTKY. 

(Contributed by the Rev. JOHN.ALISON, D.D., Edinburgh.) 

I. COUHSE OF STUDY IN ARTS AND PHILOSOPHY. 

The following are the conditions as modified by the General Assembly of 1895, 
and embodied in an Overture and Interim Act. 

"No Presbytery shall enter on the examination of any student for admission 
to the Divinity Hall for the first time, unless and until he has produced either (a) 
the diploma of a Master of Arts of a Scottish University, or the diploma of a 
Bachelor of Arts after an inidergraduate course at any British or Irish University, 
or evidence that he has passed the examination for, and is entitled to receive, 
such diploma of Master or Bachelor of Arts ; or (6) evidence that he has passed 
the preliminary examination required of those proceeding to the degree of Master 
of Arts in a Scottish University, or such examination as the university authorities 
recognise as equivalent thereto, and has attended some one of the courses required 
for that degree, and has not only attended the classes of the course, but has duly 
performed the work of each of them." 

The above conditions are " applicable to all students beginning their course in 
Arts with a view to the ministry after the passing of this Act, and also to such 
students as have already begun their course and may desire to take advantage of 
its provisions." 

II. ENTERING THE DIVINITY HALL. 

Two examinations are prescribed for every student immediately before entering 
the Divinity Hall. (1) By the Presbytery within whose bounds he usually 
resides. (2) By one or other of four Committees or Boards representative of 
Synods which meet at the four University seats. The Conveners of those 
Committees are: Edinburgh The Rev. John Alison, D. D., 1 South Lauder 
Road, Edinburgh ; Glasyow The Rev. John Watt, D.D., 5 Lansdowne Crescent, 
Glasgow; St. Andrews The Rev. Charles Durward, B.D., Scoonie ; and 
Aberdeen The Rev. W. L. Davidson, LL. D., Bourtie. 

The subjects for the examination by the Presbytery may be learned on applica 
tion to the Presbytery Clerk. They embrace knowledge of Holy Scripture and 
of the Shorter Catechism. 

The subjects for the examination by the Synodal Committee are published 
annually in the Mission Record for April and July. Additional details as to 
certificates, etc., appear in the Record for October. The date of the examination, 
which is at the end of October, is fixed annually at a meeting in May, and 
appears in the Record for July. 

The following points may be noted : 

1. Every student must on or before the first day of September intimate to 
the Presbytery Clerk his intention to enter the Divinity Hall for the first time. 
He must at the same time produce the necessary vouchers, of having fulfilled the 
conditions of the Interim Act above quoted. 

2. At the next meeting of Presbytery he must produce, in addition to the 
documents already referred to, a certificate from the minister of the parish iu 



PROCEDURE TOWARDS THE MINISTRY. 31 

which he usually resides, that he is " ill commuuiou with the Church, and that 
his character and deportment are suitable to his views." 

When the examination has been sustained the Presbytery Clerk will give the 
student a certificate to that effect, to be presented to the Convener of the Synodal 
Committee, and also to the Professor of Divinity. 

Presbytery Clerks are required to transmit the name and address of every 
student to the Convener of the Committee before which he proposes to appear. 
It is well that the student should also do so. 

3. A student resident in Scotland must produce evidence to the Presbytery 
before which he appears at the first or any subsequent examination that he has 
had his chief residence within their bounds for the previous six mouths, or pro 
duce a satisfactory certificate from the Presbytery within whose bounds he has 
so chiefly resided for a like period. 

4. Students not resident within the bounds of the Church of Scotland shall, 
previous to their enrolment as students of Divinity for any of the sessions of 
their attendance at the Hall, be examined by the Presbytery within whose bounds 
the University at which they propose to study is situated. 

5. The student must produce to the Synodal Committee not later than 1st 
October (1) the certificate from the Presbytery above referred to ; (2) the diploma 
of Master or Bachelor of Arts, or certificates of having passed his examination 
in subjects with a view to Master or Bachelor of Arts, or the requisite voucher of 
a sufficient course of study in arts. 

6. Those who have the degree of M.A. at a Scottish University, or the degree 
of B. A. of a British or Irish University, or who produce certificates of having passed 
in subjects with a view to such degree, will be exempted from examination in those 
subjects covered by the degree or certificates ; but every student must be examined 
in New Testament Greek and Hebrew. 

7. Subject to the exemptions, and under the conditions above stated, students 
will be examined "on the following subjects: viz. Greek (including the New 
Testament in Greek), Latin, Moral Philosophy, and Hebrew." 

8. Students who began their course in Arts before the passing of this Act, or 
who may not be in a position to fulfil its provisions, will be examined in the 
subjects formerly required for the degree of Master of Arts : viz. Latin, Greek, 
Logic, Moral Philosophy, Mathematics, Natural Philosophy, and English Literature, 
together with New Testament Greek and Hebrew. 

9. When a student s examination has been sustained, the Committee will furnish 
him with a certificate to that effect to be presented to the Professor of Divinity. 

10. The Synodal Committee meets only once a year, at the end of October. 
Any student who fails to pass the examination " may appear before the same Com 
mittee at its next year s or any subsequent meeting." 

III. BURSARIES, ETC., FOR STUDENTS IN DIVINITY. 

A detailed list of those is given in the various University Calendars. The parts 
of the calendar which contain them can be had on application to the clerks to the 
University Courts. 

IV. COURSE OF STUDY IN DIVINITY. 

1. Students must attend at the Divinity Hall for "three full and regular 
sessions or two full and regular sessions and three partial sessions ; it being 
understood that all students shall be required to give at least two full sessions of 
regular attendance on each of the classes of Divinity, Church History, Hebrew, 
and Biblical Criticism." The last session of the course must be a regular session. 

2. The following discourses must be delivered during the Divinity course : 
(1) An exegesis in Latin on some controverted head in Divinity ; (2) a homily in 
English ; (3) a critical exercise on some portion of the original text of the Old 
Testament ; (4) an exercise and addition on some portion of the original text of 



32 PROCEDURE TOWARDS THE MINISTRY. 

the New Testament ; (5) a lecture on some portion of Scripture ; (6) a popular 
sermon. 

3. Students are also required to study the art of public reading and speaking 
under some competent teacher approved by the Faculty of Theology, during at 
least one hour a week for at least sixteen weeks in each of two sessions. 

4. Students who have attended for two full sessions at the Divinity Hall and 
delivered with approbation the six trial discourses and have undergone satisfactory 
examination by their Presbyteries, may finish their course at another " Protestant 
University or Universities not within the bounds of this Church." They must, 
however, satisfy their Presbyteries in regard to the classes which they propose 
to attend and also in regard to the proficiency which they have acquired in the 
language used in the Foreign University in which they intend to study." 

V. EXAMINATIONS BY PRESBYTERIES DURING THE DIVINITY COURSE. 

Every student must be examined by his Presbytery each year before enrol 
ment in the Divinity classes. He must at each of these examinations (after the 
first already referred to) produce certificates from the several professors under 
whom he has studied. He must be known to some member of Presbytery " as 
having had his chief residence within their bounds for the previous six months, 
or produce a satisfactory certificate to them from that Presbytery within whose 
bounds he has so chiefly resided for a like period." 

He must produce to the Professor of Divinity a certificate of having passed 
this examination, and also a certificate from his parish minister of his good 
character and communion with the Church. 

Text-books and subjects of examination may be learned on application to the 
Presbytery Clerk. 

VI. STUDENTS PREACHING PROHIBITED. 

" The ministers of this Church are expressly discharged and prohibited from 
giving countenance or permission to students of Divinity to engage in the public 
ministry of the Word before being regularly licensed to preach the Gospel." 

VII. LICENSING OP STUDENTS. 

1. A student may not receive licence until he has completed his twenty-first year. 

2. Every student, after he has completed the prescribed course of theological 
instruction, and before he is taken on trials for licence, must be examined by one 
or other of the four Synodal Committees or Boards "on the various subjects of 
theological study." Presbyteries retain the power of examination for licence 
hitherto exercised by them, but " every candidate for licence by a Presbytery 
shall produce to the Presbytery a certificate from one of the Synodal Com 
mittees, that his examination by them has been sustained." Students who have 
taken the degree of B.D. may be exempted from examination in the subjects of 
theological study covered by the degree. The subjects of examination will be 
similar to those for the degree of B.D. The examination will be held at each 
university seat in April or May, on days to be fixed by the respective Committees, 
and intimated, along with the subjects of examination, in the Mission Record for 
October. The subjects of examination appear in the Mission Record for July. 

3. A motion that the student be taken on trials for licence must be made by a 
member of Presbytery. This motion cannot be considered till after the close of 
his last session in the Theological course. 

4. Notice of such a motion must be given at the meeting immediately preceding, 
when the member is appointed to lay before the Presbytery at the next meeting 
the student s certificates from the several professors in the Theological Faculty. 

5. The Presbytery then consider whether he has completed the prescribed 
course ; whether his principles and behaviour are satisfactory ; and whether he 
has been resident during the year chiefly within their bounds or has been duly 
certified from another Presbytery. 



COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION OF MINISTERS. 33 

6. Having satisfied themselves on these points, the Clerk gives notice to the 
several Presbyteries within the Synod. 

These preliminary steps may be taken by the Presbytery before the student has 
produced a certificate from the Synodal Committee. 

7. Before a blind student can be taken on trials, the Presbytery must consult 
the General Assembly. 

8. It is competent to a Presbytery, upon sufficient cause shown, to transfer the 
student s trials or any parts thereof to another Presbytery. 

9. With permission of the Synod the Presbytery then take the student on his 
private trials, consisting of examination in his knowledge of the Greek and Latin 
languages, and of Philosophy and Theology. Thereafter his public trials are 
taken, viz. (1) catechetical trials on Divinity, Chronology, and Church History ; 
(2) trials in the Hebrew and Greek languages ; (3) an exegesis in Latin on some 
controverted head in Divinity ; (4) a homily in English ; (5) an exercise and 
addition ; (6) a critical exercise on a portion of the Hebrew text of the Old 
Testament ; (7) a lecture on some portion of Scripture ; (8) a popular sermon. 

The Presbytery may, after a student s second year in the Divinity Hall, pre 
scribe to him an exegesis, homily, and lecture, and may receive and hear these 
prior to his entering on his third session. These discourses will be kept in 
retentis and regarded as part of his trials for licence. 

10. The Presbytery, when satisfied with a conjunct view of the trials, and 
having received " explicit and satisfying answers to the questions appointed to 
be put by Act XVII., Assembly 1889, and having required him to subscribe the 
formula prescribed by that Act, appoint their Moderator to license the student to 
preach the Gospel and order their Clerk to furnish him with an extract of his licence." 



COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION OP MINISTERS. 

Convener Principal STEWART, D.D., St. Andrews. 

rPHE Presbytery of Auchterarder overtured the General Assembly of 1884 to 
-L take into consideration the present College curriculum prescribed for those 
studying for the ministry of the Church, in relation to the now greatly widened 
field of literature and science. The Assembly thereupon appointed a Com 
mittee, which unanimously agreed to report that they were of opinion that 
some change in the present curriculum was desirable, so as to make it more com 
prehensive, and that probably this could best be done by allowing students an 
option of subjects for study within fixed limits. The Committee was enlarged in 
1890 and again in 1891, and consists now of. over 60 members. In 1892 the 
Committee was instructed to prepare for next Assembly a Draft Overture embody 
ing changes proposed in the laws of the Church, so as to give effect to the 
suggestions of the Report ; and also to report as to means to further the spiritual 
life of students of theology. In 1895 it was found that the Draft Overture, 
which had in the meantime been converted into an Interim Act, had not received 
the approval of a majority of the Presbyteries of the Church, and a special 
Committee was appointed to adjust and bring up an Overture recognising any 
course of study qualifying for the degree of M.A., including the Preliminary 
Examination, as an evidence of sufficient University training before entering 
on the study of Divinity, and at the same time laying down certain specified 
subjects on which students must pass an examination before the Synodical 
Board, previous to their admission to the Divinity Hall as regular students

(graduates, or those holding Departmental certificates, being exempted as regards 
the subjects covered by degree or certificate). The Overture prepared by this 
Committee was made an Interim Act, and its terms will be found in the Mission 
Record for July 1895, p. 231. Dr. Rankiu having resigned the Convenership of 
the General Committee, Principal Stewart, who had been Convener of the Special 
Committee, was appointed in his place. The same Committee was charged with 
the management, under Prof. Cowan and Dr. Nicol, of a Scholarship for study in 
Greek and Bible Lands.

The following are the recommendations of the Committee approved by the 
General Assembly respecting remuneration to preachers. 

That the fee paid for occasional supply of a pulpit shall not be less than 1 : Is., 
besides travelling expenses ; and in all ordinary cases where the travelling ex 
penses are not exceptionally heavy, that a fee of 1 : 10s., besides travelling ex 
penses, be paid, with a suitable increase when warranted by the duties and stipend 
of the parish ; and further, that all vacant congregations shall pay the travelling 
expenses of probationers whom they may ask to preach before them as candidates.

REGULATIONS framed and enacted by the General Assembly of the 
Church of Scotland to be observed in the Election and Appointment 
of Ministers (1893), with alterations (1894) and (1895). 1 

Upon Vacancy occurring, Moderator of Kirk-Session to be appointed. 

I. Upon a vacancy occurring in any parish, a meeting of the Presbytery shall 
be held as soon as possible, and within seven days of the vacancy corning to the 
knowledge of the Moderator or Clerk, of which meeting notice shall be given by 
the Presbytery Clerk to the Session-Clerk of the vacant parish, with intimation 
that the members of Kirk-Session may appear and be heard, if they so wish, in 
regard to the arrangements to be then made by the Presbytery. At this meeting 
the Presbytery shall appoint a Minister to declare the vacancy, and shall furnish 
him with the declaration, which may be in the form of Schedule A. 1. They 
shall also appoint one of their own number to be Moderator of the Kirk-Session ; 
provided that in collegiate charges, and in cases for the appointment of an assistant 
and successor, such appointment of a Moderator shall be for the purposes of these 
Regulations only, and shall not be made if the Minister of the parish intimates 
that he desires to perform the duties ; provided also that, if more than one 
Minister of the Parish makes such intimation, the Presbytery shall appoint one 
of them. 

Procedure in case of Appointment of Assistant and Successor. 

II. When a Presbytery has resolved that an assistant and successor shall be 
appointed in any parish, the date of such resolution by the Presbytery shall be 
held to be the date of the occurrence of the vacancy. The procedure thereafter 
shall, subject to the qualification in Regulation I., be the same as if a vacancy 
had occurred in the parish ; provided that, in the event of the death of the Minister 
before an election has been made, the date of the occurrence of the vacancy shall 
in that case be held to be the date of the death of the Minister, and procedure 
shall begin de novo. But if the death of the Minister occur after the election, 
but before induction, no new election shall be made. 

The Kirk- Session to make up the Electoral Roll. 

III. It shall be the duty of the Kirk-Session, as soon as possible after the appoint 
ment of a Moderator, to proceed to make up an Electoral Roll of the congrega 
tion, which shall contain (1) as communicants all persons, not being under church 
discipline, whose names are upon the Communion Roll at the date of the occur 
rence of the vacancy after it has been revised by the Kirk-Session as at that 
date ; as also those who are, and at that date were, parishioners in communion 
with the Church of Scotland, and have given in certificates within the time 
intimated in terms of Schedule A. 2, provided such certificates are sustained ; 
(2) as adherents, such other persons, being parishioners or seat-holders not under 
twenty-one years of age, as have claimed in writing within the time intimated as 
aforesaid, and in the form of Schedule B., to be placed on the Electoral Roll, and 
in regard to whom the Kirk-Session are satisfied that they desire to be permanently 
connected with the congregation, or are associated with it in its interests and 
work, and that no reason exists for refusing to admit them to the Communion if 
they should apply. As regards adherents, the decision of the Kirk-Session shall 
be final.

Hearing of Claims and preparing of Electoral Roll. 

IV. At the same time as the declaration of the vacancy as aforesaid is made 
from the pulpit, the Moderator shall cause intimation to be made in terms of 
Schedule A. 2, filled up by the Kirk-Session, of a meeting of the Kirk-Session 
to decide on the claims of persons to be placed on the Electoral Roll. The time 
allowed for giving in certificates as communicants, and claims as adherents, shall 
be not less than seven nor more than eleven free days ; and such certificates and 
claims shall be sent to the Session-Clerk. At their meeting, which shall be held 
on the day following the latest day intimated for giving in certificates and claims

forthwith, and within seven days from the date of said meeting, prepare the list 
of the names and addresses of communicants and adherents which they propose as 
the Electoral Roll of the Congregation, the names being arranged in alphabetical 
order. 

Inspection and Final Adjustment of Electoral Roll. 

V. The list of persons proposed as the Electoral Roll of the congregation having 
been prepared, the Moderator shall cause intimation to be made from the pulpit 
in terms of Schedule C. 1, that it will lie for inspection on the six days 
immediately following the day of intimation at such place and for such hoiirs as 
the Kirk-Session shall fix, due regard being had by them to the convenience of 
the congregation ; and further, that on the Lord s Day on which intimation is 
made, and on the Lord s Day next following, opportunity will also be afforded 
for inspecting the list in the session-house, or at the door of the church ; and 
further, that on the Monday or Tuesday immediately following the Lord s Day 
last mentioned the Kirk -Session will meet to hear parties having an interest, 
and will finally revise and adjust said list. At this meeting, or at any adjourned 
meeting to be held within two days thereafter, the list, having been revised and 
adjusted, shall be attested by the Moderator and Clerk as the Electoral Roll of 
the congregation, and a certified copy shall be forthwith transmitted to the .Clerk 
of Presbytery. The congregation for the purposes of these Regulations shall be 
the persons whose names are on the Electoral Roll attested as aforesaid ; and no 
person shall be entitled to vote under these Regulations whose name is not on 
said Electoral Roll. On the Electoral Roll attested as aforesaid, and on the copy 
thereof to be transmitted to the Clerk of Presbytery, the names shall be numbered, 
and marked with their numbers, consecutively in the order in which they stand on 
the Electoral Roll. If, after the Electoral Roll has been attested, any communi 
cant on his own application receives a certificate of transference, the Session-Clerk 
shall give intimation of such transference to the Moderator, who shall thereupon 
delete the name from the Electoral Roll, and initial the deletion. 

Election of Congregational Committee. 

VI. At the same time as the intimation in Schedule C. 1 is made from the 
pulpit, the Moderator shall cause intimation to be made, in terms of Schedule C. 
2, that a meeting of the congregation will be held to appoint a Committee of their 
own number for the purpose of nominating one or more persons to the congrega 
tion with a view to the election and appointment of a Minister. 1 The day fixed 
by the Kirk-Session for the meeting of the congregation for the election of a 
Committee shall be not less than eleven nor more than seventeen free days after 
the date of intimation. Before proceeding to the appointment of this Committee 
or of a new Committee, as hereinafter provided, a resolution shall be passed by 
the meeting that the number of members constituting the Committee shall not 
exceed a certain number specified in the resolution. 2 The Moderator shall preside 
at the meeting, and the Electoral Roll, attested as aforesaid, shall be in his hands, 

1 See further, p. 43. - See further, p. 44. 



ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 37 



and he shall see that only qualified electors take part in the voting. At the 
close of the meeting the Committee shall meet, and shall appoint one of their 
number to be Convener. 

Nomination by the Congregational Committee, 

VII. The Committee shall keep minutes of their proceedings, and at all meet 
ings the Convener shall have a deliberative as well as a casting vote. When they 
resolve to proceed to nominate with a view to the election and appointment of a 
Minister to the vacant church and parish they shall carry out their nomination 
in manner following : They may name and propose one person for election and 
appointment by the congregation ; or, in the event of being unable to resolve 
on a single nominee, they may name and propose more persons than one with a 
view to an election and appointment by the congregation ; but in any case no 
nomination shall be made without the express consent of the person or persons 
to be nominated. No nomination shall be made except at a meeting when all 
the members are present, or at a meeting specially called by the Convener by 
circular, at least five free days before the day of meeting, bearing that it is for 
this purpose ; and in either case a majority of votes of those present shall deter 
mine the person or persons to be nominated. The minute of nomination shall 
be in the form of Schedule D. , and shall be signed by the Convener in the presence 
of the meeting, and sent forthwith by him to the Moderator of Kirk-Session. 

The Moderator, on receiving the minute of nomination from the Convener ol 
the Committee, shall, as soon as possible, cause it to be read from the pulpit of 
the vacant church, along with an announcement of the names of nominees (if 
any) who have intimated their withdrawal. In the event of the only person or 
all the persons nominated withdrawing, the Convener shall forthwith call a meet 
ing of the Committee. At said meeting the Committee may make a new nomina 
tion, or may resolve to take steps thereto, or to take no such steps. If a new 
nomination is made or resolved on, the Committee shall proceed by minute of 
nomination as hereinbefore prescribed ; otherwise the Convener shall without 
delay, in writing, inform the Moderator of the resolution adopted. 

Procedure in the Election. 

VIII. The day fixed by the Kirk-Session for the election of a Minister shall 
be not less than seven nor more than fourteen free days after the date of intima 
tion of it from the pulpit, which shall be made in terms of Schedule E. or Schedule 
F., at the same time that the minute of nomination is read, said Schedule to be 
filled up by the Kirk -Session. The Kirk -Session in appointing the place of 
voting, and the time on the day of election (which shall not be the Lord s Day) 
during which the vote is to be taken, shall have regard to the convenience of the 
electors, the number who may be expected to vote, and the proper carrying out 
of the voting arrangements ; and the time allowed for voting shall include a 
certain time during the day as well as in the evening. The Moderator shall 
preside at the election, and may be assisted by such persons as he shall appoint. 
The election shall be by voting papers in one of the forms prescribed in Schedule 
G., which and their counterfoils shall be numbered consecutively, and which 
shall be provided by the Kirk-Session, and supplied to the electors at the place 
and time of voting. All means necessary to carry out the voting shall be provided 
by the Kirk-Session. The Moderator shall have the Electoral Roll at the place 
of voting, and he shall see that a voting paper is not supplied to any person 
whose name is not on the Electoral Roll ; and also that, as each elector receives 
a voting paper, the name of that elector is marked on the Electoral Roll as having 
voted, and his number on the Electoral Roll marked on the counterfoil of the 
voting paper supplied to him. He shall also arrange that the admission of electors 
shall be properly regulated, and that they retire after voting. Each elector, after 
receiving a voting paper, shall mark it as directed on the paper, and shall then 



38 ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTEES. 

place it in a ballot-box. The Moderator, or his deputy or member or members 
of the Presbytery presiding along with him (if any) appointed under Regulation 
XV., shall give assistance if desired by any elector in marking the voting paper, 
but no other person shall give such assistance ; and care shall be taken that there 
is no interference with voters in marking their papers, and that they have an 
opportunity of marking them without divulging the vote given : provided always 
that the fact of a voting paper containing the means of identification shall not 
invalidate the vote, if it is otherwise sufficiently marked. The ballot-box and 
papers shall be under the charge of the Moderator, who shall be responsible for 
their safe keeping. 

Mode of Voting when One Person only is Nominated, 

IX. If only one person is nominated, and has not withdrawn, or only one 
person remains as nominee in consequence of another or others withdrawing, the 
Moderator shall, when the minute of nomination is read from the pulpit, cause 
intimation to be made, in terms of Schedule E., that a vote of the congregation 
will be taken "For" or "Against" electing and appointing the said nominee. 
If the number of qualified electors voting " For" the person nominated exceeds 
that of those voting " Against " him, he shall be held as elected and appointed ; 
otherwise it shall be held that no election has been made. 

Mode of Voting when more Persons than One are Nominated. 

X. If more persons than one are nominated, and not withdrawn, the Moderator 
shall, when the minute of nomination is read from the pulpit, cause intimation to 
be made, in terms of Schedule F. 1, that a vote of the congregation will be taken. 
An elector may vote for any one of the persons nominated, or he may vote against 
them all. If one of the persons nominated receives a majority of the whole votes 
recorded, he shall be held as elected and appointed to the vacant church and 
parish. If no one of the persons nominated receives a majority of the whole votes 
recorded, the name of the person (or, in case of equality, persons) receiving the 
lowest number of votes, together with the name or names of any for whom no 
vote has been recorded, shall be struck off, and a second vote shall be taken on 
the person or persons remaining ; and the same course shall, if necessary, be 
followed by successive votings until only one person remains. If he has not 
received a majority of the whole votes recorded at that voting, the procedure 
with respect to him shall be the same as if he had been the only person originally 
nominated. If at the final vote he does not receive a majority of the whole votes 
recorded, or if at any voting all the nominees have equal votes, or there is a 
majority of the whole votes recorded against all the nominees, it shall be held 
that no election has been made. When a second or further vote has to be taken, 
not more than ten free days shall elapse between it and the date of the vote 
immediately preceding, and previous intimation shall be made from the pulpit 
in terms of Schedule F. 2, and the voting may be fixed for a day not less than 
three free days after the date of intimation. 

Counting and Declaration of the Votes and Call. 

XI. As soon as practicable after the close of the voting the Moderator shall 
proceed, in presence of the Kirk-Session, with the counting of the votes, in which 
he may be assisted as provided in Regulation VIII. He shall not count any 
papers in which, according to his judgment, the marking is uncertain. He shall, 
after the counting has been completed, make a declaration of the votes in one of 
the forms of Schedule H., said declaration to be affixed to the door or notice- 
board of the church within two days after the day of voting. He shall also, after 
the counting is completed, seal up the voting papers used in the voting, and the 



ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 39 

counterfoils, to be handed to the Presbytery Clerk if called for by the Presbytery, 
and after the settlement they shall be destroyed. 

The Moderator shall cause intimation to be given from the pulpit, as soon as 
possible after an election and appointment has been made, that a Call in the usual 
form will lie with the Session-Clerk, or other suitable person, for a certain time, 
being not less than seven free days, to receive the signatures of the congregation 
and of parishioners. 

Transmission of Documents to Presbytery. 

XII. After an election and appointment has been made, the Moderator of 
Kirk-Session shall without delay transmit the relative documents to the Moderator 
or Clerk of the Presbytery of the bounds to be laid before the Presbytery. The 
documents to be so transmitted shall be : Minute of nomination by the Congrega 
tional Committee ; all subsequent intimations to the congregation ; and the de 
claration of the election and appointment given under the hand of the Moderator 
of Kirk-Session. 

The Moderator of Kirk-Session shall also at the same time inform the Pres 
bytery of the steps taken with reference to the Call, and of the time during which 
it is to lie with the Session-Clerk or other person ; and the Session-Clerk at the 
expiry of that time shall transmit it to the Moderator or Clerk of Presbytery. 

Failure to Nominate, and Failure to Elect. 

XIII. If no minute of nomination from the Convener of the Congregational Com 
mittee has been transmitted to the Moderator of Kirk-Session within three months 
from the date of the election of the Committee, five qualified electors of the vacant 
parish in cases where there are fewer than a hundred names on the Electoral Roll, 
and ten qualified electors when it amounts to or exceeds that number, may require 
the Moderator to take steps with a view to a nomination being made. The 
Moderator shall, upon receiving such requisition, state in writing to the Convener 
of the Committee that, in the event of no minute of nomination beinsr lodged with 
him within ten days from the date of writing, the Committee will be regarded as 
failing to nominate. If the Committee so fail to nominate, the Moderator shall 
cause intimation to be made as soon as possible from the pulpit of the vacant 
church in terms of Schedule I. that the congregation are to proceed of new to elect 
a Committee ; and the procedure which is hereinbefore prescribed for the election 
of a Committee shall be followed, but the election may be fixed for a day not less 
than three free days after the date of intimation. The same course shall be 
followed where, though there has been a nomination, there has been a failure to 
elect a Minister, followed by a resolution of the Committee to make no new 
nomination. In any other case of failure to elect, the Committee, unless they 
resign and intimate their resignation to the Moderator, shall be held as continuing 
in office, and shall forthwith take steps with a view to making a new nomination ; 
provided always that if, after a failure to elect, a requisition, signed by not fewer 
than one-fifth of the qualified electors, be lodged with the Moderator before the 
expiry of the third free day, requiring him to call a meeting of the congregation 
to determine whether the Committee shall continue, or to elect a new Committee, 
he shall cause intimation to be made from the pulpit to that effect in terms of 
Schedule K., and the meeting may be fixed for a day not less than three free 
days after the date of intimation. 

Publication of Intimations. 

XIV. When any intimation provided for in these Regulations has been read 
from the pulpit, the Kirk-Session shall cause a copy to. be affixed to the door or 
notice-board of the church ; and the form of adherent s claim in Schedule B. shall 
be affixed along with the intimations in Schedule A, ; and the form of voting 



40 ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 

paper and directions to voters in Schedule G. shall be affixed along with the 
intimations in Schedules E. and F. 

Power of Moderator of Kirk-Session to appoint Deputy. 

XV. The Moderator of Kirk-Session may, in case of unavoidable absence, 
authorise in writing a member of the Presbytery to act as his deputy, and he 
shall specify the occasion on which he is to act. Also, where he deems the 
number of persons voting, in the election of a Minister, to be so large as to render 
it necessary that more than one person should preside, he may appoint in writing 
a member or members of Presbytery to preside along with him at the voting. 

Interpretation . 

XVI. " Free days " shall be held to mean complete days exclusive of those on 
which the procedure in question begins or ends.

ADDRESS AND SUGGESTIONS. 

With a view to obviate mistakes and to afford guidance as to the best means of 
carrying out the proceedings, the General Assembly has approved of and adopted 
the following counsels, and directed them to be printed and issued along with the 
" Regulations for the Election of Ministers " at the end of said Regulations. 

1. Address to be read to the Congregation before entering on the 
Election Proceedings. 

The Moderator of Kirk-Session of the vacant parish shall read, or cause to be 
read, to the congregation, immediately after the intimation of the meeting for the 
election of a Congregational Committee (Regulation VI.), the following : 

" The General Assembly, considering how deeply important it is that the steps 
which are taken for the election of a Minister should be proceeded in with a due 
sense of the momentous nature of the duty, aud an earnest desire and endeavour 
to discharge it aright, deem it fitting to address to you some words of counsel. 
You are now called as a congregation to exercise the privileges which belong to 
you in relation to the appointment of a Minister to this parish. It is impossible to 



44 ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 

over-estimate the importance of that duty. In making choice of one who is to be 
your future religious teacher and spiritual guide, you perform an act, the issues 
of which must be of the most vital moment to yourselves and to the interests of 
this parish. The welfare of the congregation, the promotion of the cause and 
kingdom of Christ in this place, and the attainment of the many and great benefits 
which arise from a successful ministry, depend on your exercising your choice 
wisely and rightly. Considering, therefore, how solemn the duty is to which you 
are called, and how serious its consequences will be, let it be your earnest desire 
and effort to discharge it with thoughtful care. Let it be your aim, and your 
only aim, in the decisions which you form, to do what you sincerely consider will 
be most for the good of the Church of Christ. As becomes a Christian congrega 
tion, knit together by the common bond of allegiance to Christ, "let all your 
things be done with charity," maintaining towards each other, whatever may be 
your individual opinions, a spirit of forbearance and peace. Pray also to 
Almighty God, earnestly beseeching Him to guide you by the grace of His Spirit, 
so that the various steps which are taken for the election of a Minister to this 
parish may issue in an appointment which shall be for His glory, and for the good 
of the Church. 

The first step which you will have to take is, as the intimation just made 
informs you, to elect a Committee. The office with which the Committee are 
intrusted is that of selecting one or more persons, whose names are to be sub 
mitted to you, with a view to the appointment of a Minister. The duty, there 
fore, devolving on the Committee is an extremely important one ; and in choosing 
those who are to form the Committee, you should act with much deliberation and 
care. The members of the congregation who are selected for this duty should be 
such as command your full confidence ; and it is on this account necessary that 
you should all, as far as possible, take part in the election which has been to-day 
intimated, and should not leave it to a section only of the congregation. If you 
show a sincere and general interest in this matter, and appoint a satisfactory 
Committee a Committee adequately representing the congregation it will tend 
in a pre-eminent degree to the successful issue of the means which fall to be taken 
for the appointment of a Minister. To this very important part of your duty, 
therefore, it is requisite that you should give your careful attention. And having 
made choice of a Committee, it is but right that they should receive your 
co-operation, so far as it can be given ; and that you should offer your earnest 
prayers for them, that they may be directed to such conclusions as shall result in 
the highest good of this parish, and the advancement of the cause of our Lord 
Jesus Christ. 

The General Assembly commend you to the blessing and guidance of Almighty 
God, who alone can direct and prosper you in the discharge of the great and 
solemn duty which lies before you." 

2. Suggestions as to the Procedure at the meeting of the Congregation for 
Electing a Committee (Regulation VI.) 

The Moderator having opened the meeting with prayer, and having arranged for 
a minute of the proceedings being taken, shall read to the meeting the following 
recommendations of the General Assembly relative to the procedure to be taken 
in the election of the Committee. 

1. The first step necessary to be taken by the meeting being to fix a number 
which shall not be exceeded in electing a Committee, the most obvious course is 
to determine it according to the number of the congregation as shown by the 
Electoral Roll ; and the following is a scale which, in the opinion of the General 
Assembly, may ordinarily be adopted by congregations with advantage : 
Committee not to exceed 13 when the number on Electoral Roll is under 500 
,, 19 ,, 1000 

,, ,, 25 ,, ,, amounts to 1000, or more. 



ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 45 

2. The maximum number Laving been fixed by the meeting, the Moderator 
should next call for nominations. To constitute a nomination, it is necessary that 
the name of a person be proposed and seconded. As it is of the utmost importance 
that sufficient opportunity should be given for hearing and judging of each name 
proposed, only one person should be allowed to be nominated at a time. In the 
event of the name of any oue being proposed who is not present at the meeting, his 
proposer should be able to state that, if elected, he will accept office, and act on 
the Committee. The Moderator should have the names of the persons nominated 
taken down in writing in the order in which they are nominated. 

3. When the nominations appear to the Moderator to be completed, he should 
read to the meeting the list of the names of persons nominated ; and he should 
then ask, first, whether there are any withdrawals ? and second, whether there 
are any further nominations ? After he has allowed a sufficient opportunity 
to the meeting for responding to each question, and deleted from the list the names 
withdrawn (if any), and added further names nominated (if any), the election will 
fall to be proceeded with. 

4. If the number of persons nominated amounts only to the maximum fixed by 
the meeting, or is less than the maximum fixed, such persons will constitute the 
Committee without any vote being taken. If the number of persons nominated, 
and not withdrawn, exceeds the maximum fixed, the Moderator should take the 
votes of the meeting in their favour one by one in the order in which they stand 
on the list ; and those for whom most votes are given, to the number fixed, will 
constitute the Committee. If any should have equal votes, they should be 
preferred in the order in which they stand on the list. Voting should be by 
standing up, unless otherwise resolved. 

5. After intimating the names of the persons elected, and announcing to them 
that they are to meet at the conclusion of the proceedings, in terms of the 
Kegulatious, to appoint a convener, the Moderator should close the meeting with 
prayer. 

3. Suggestions for the Guidance of the Congregational Committee. 

The General Assembly recommend to the consideration of Congregational 
Committees appointed under the Regulations for the Election of Ministers certain 
matters which have, from time to time, been made the subject of representation 
to the Assembly, and in respect to which it is desirable that they should receive 
the earnest attention of Committees. 

On the appointment of a Committee for the purpose of taking steps for the 
election of a Minister to a vacant parish, applications and testimonials are sent to 
them by persons desirous of being elected to the vacancy. This in itself is 
probably inevitable ; but it has been represented to the Assembly that there is 
reason to apprehend that some Committees, in making choice of those whom they 
have nominated to the congregation for election, have limited themselves entirely 
to the persons who have sent applications. This is a practice which is to be 
deprecated. The function with which the Committee are intrusted by the 
congregation is the large oue of proposing a person or persons whom they regard 
as well fitted for the vacant parish ; and they are not justified in narrowing their 
inquiry so as to embrace only those who have applied. It should be remembered 
that many who are well qualified for appointment to a vacant parish will not send 
applications or credentials, while, at the same time, they are willing to be nomin 
ated, if the initiative comes from the Committee. It is therefore incumbent on 
the Committee not to limit their selection to those only who may have sent in 
applications ; but, while paying due attention to their claims, to institute 
independent inquiry also, with the view of finding out the most suitable person 
or persons for nomination. 

While the duty of instituting inquiry in order to make a suitable nomination 
(whether from among those who have applied or those not applying) is one which 



46 ELECTION AND APPOINTMENT OF MINISTERS. 

imposes considerable labour on the Committee, they should bear in mind that it 
is really on their conducting this part of their work with earnestness and thorough 
ness that their success mainly depends. They should therefore take time to make 
their selection with every possible care, and should never allow the name of any 
person to be brought before the congregation with their sanction until they have 
fully satisfied themselves, by means of anxious investigation, that, if appointed, 
he would be a suitable minister for the vacant parish. 

If the preliminary inquiries made by the Committee are of this careful and 
thorough character, it will do much to obviate an evil which has been made the 
subject of frequent representation to the General Assembly. The evil referred to 
is connected with what has been designated " Competitive Preaching." It is, no 
doubt, only right that, before being called on to take part in the election of a 
minister, a congregation should have an opportunity of hearing, and forming their 
own opinion of, the person or persons who may be nominated. But at the same 
time, if this practice is carried to excess if many persons, as is sometimes the case, 
are brought to oifkiate to the congregation with a view to the appointment the 
effect cannot but be prejudicial to the spiritual tone of the congregation. Besides, 
it is not at all conducive to a satisfactory decision being arrived at. The con 
gregation, diiring a protracted period of hearing, naturally become perplexed and 
divided by the multiplicity of men and gifts brought before them, and this is 
apt to lead to unfortunate consequences. It lies with the Committee to prevent 
an evil which has been so much complained of, and is of such a serious character. 
They should make their preliminary inquiries in such a thorough manner as to be 
able to confine this practice within moderate limits. If they can select one, whom 
they regard as specially well fitted for appointment to the vacant parish, and on 
whom the congregation as a whole are likely to unite, they should arrange for 
his being alone heard by the congregation. This may not always be possible ; 
and if it is not possible, the Committee should at all events reduce their selection 
of persons for hearing by the congregation to only a small number, whom, after 
full inquiry, they consider to be the most suitable. It should be borne in mind 
by the Committee that this is really the proper fulfilment of the commission with 
which they are entrusted by the congregation ; for the very object for which they 
are appointed is that they, having opportunity of obtaining information and of 
testing it, which is impossible to a congregation, should make a careful selection 
out of those who are eligible, and should not throw the burden of selecting on the 
congregation, which is practically the case when many persons are brought before 
them to be heard. 

The observations which have now been made on the propriety of the Committee 
limiting the number of persons to be heard by the congregation apply equally to 
the number of persons to be nominated to the congregation with a view to election. 
It is in every way undesirable that the minute of nomination by the Committee 
should contain many names. This can only lead to confusion and misunder 
standing. If the Committee have performed their work of preliminary investiga 
tion carefully, and have taken pains to ascertain the feelings of the congregation, 
they will, as a rule, have no difficulty in avoiding this evil. If they are of opinion 
that there is not sufficient unanimity in the congregation to justify them in 
confining their nomination to one name only, they should exceed that number as 
little as possible. In very many cases in which a single nomination may be found 
impracticable, it is known beforehand that the choice of the majority of the 
congregation will rest on one or other of two persons. In these circumstances 
the Committee should limit their nomination to them. Indeed it were well 
that Committees should, in every instance where a division is inevitable, make it 
their aim to arrive at a selection of the two names only which in their judgment 
commend themselves most to the congregation. This would obviate the evils 
arising from the issue presented to the congregation being needlessly complicated 
by the proposal of a number of names. And it should also be borne in mind 



ADMISSION OF MINISTERS OF OTHER CHURCHES. 47 

that, under the system of voting by voting papers prescribed in the Regulations, 
there is a special advantage in avoiding the nomination of a multiplicity of names. 
For it is required by the Regulations that, in order to a valid election, there shall 
not only be a majority of votes in favour of one person, but a majority of the 
whole votes recorded, and if this is not effected, the congregation will have to vote 
a second time, and it may be repeatedly, which will cause serious delay. One 
effect of this provision is to render it most important that Committees should 
limit their nominations as far as practicable. It is obvious that, when the 
Committee have performed their work carefully enough to be able to propose 
the names of no more than two persons, between whom the votes will be given, 
the election, under this system of voting, may be expected to be carried out at 
once. On the other hand, the risk of no one person receiving a majority of the 
whole votes recorded, and of consequent delay, is increased when a greater 
number of names are submitted to the vote. The matter is one which Committees 
have it in their power satisfactorily to deal with by carrying out their procedure 
with forethought and wisdom, and it is so important as to call for their earnest 
attention. 

The General Assembly make the above suggestions for the guidance of 
Congregational Committees, believing that they will be glad to be assisted in 
their work by a knowledge of what the experience of the past has shown to be 
most conducive to its successful performance. The duty which is devolved by 
the congregation on the Committee is so momentous and responsible that it 
demands not only earnest care, but also that it be discharged in a spirit of 
seriousness and prayeri ulness. And, while the Committee give their best 
endeavours to finding a suitable person for election by the congregation to the 
vacant parish, it is not less important that everything should be done with an 
earnest desire to preserve the harmony and peace of the congregation. 

The General Assembly has directed that the suggestions for the guidance of the 
Congregational Committee be also printed separately for the information of 
Committees ; and has instructed the Moderator of Kirk-Session of the vacant 
parish to see that the members of Committee are provided, as soon as possible 
after their election, with copies of the suggestions, which will be obtained by him 
on application to the Agent of the Church. 

The attention of Congregational Committees is directed to the fact that the 
General Assembly have approved of a recommendation that, when Probationers 
officiate in a vacant parish by incitation of the Congregational Committee, their 
travelling expenses should be defrayed by the congregation. 



A 



ADMISSION OP MINISTEES OP OTHEE CHUECHES. 

Convener. The Rev. JOHN PATRICK, D.D., 18 Regent Ten-ace, Edinburgh. 

COMMITTEE on this subject was appointed in 1892, for the purpose of con 
sidering and judging applications from ministers or licentiates of other com 
munions for admission to the Church. The General Assembly of 1886 made it 
" competent for the congregation of a vacant parish to elect and appoint, and to 
call an ordained minister of a congregation of any other Presbyterian Church 
within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, adhering to the doctrine, 
government, and discipline of the Church." The General Assembly of 1892 
made several further changes in the regulations of the Committee : one of these 
changes being that the Committee now receives applications from students as 
well as from ministers and licentiates. Applications from ministers and licenti 
ates cannot be reported by the Committee to the ensuing General Assembly 
unless they are lodged with the Convener not later than 1st January, and from 



48 THE INCOME OF THE MINISTRY. 

students not later than 31st March. Copies of the Act, which contains full 
particulars of the procedure, and a note of the fees payable by each applicant in 
advance, may be had from the Convener. 



THE INCOME 01 THE MINISTRY. 

A STATEMENT of the Endowments of the Church will be found at page 22. 
-J- An article on Teinds will be found in the Year-Books for 1886 and 1887, 
and one on Stipends in the Year-Book for 1890. A short statement regarding 
the terms of payment of Stipend, etc., will be found below. The working of the 
Endowment Committee is shown at page 62. Beyond these the Church seeks to 
augment the Small Livings, to provide for her Aged and Infirm Ministers, and to 
help those on whom falls the burden of the claims due under the Patronage 
Abolition Act. How she does so the following articles will explain. 

STIPENDS : THEIE TEEMS OF PAYMENT. 

(Contributed by the Rev. WILLIAM SIMPSON, Bonhill.) 

THE legal terms which determine the payment of a minister s stipend are 
Whitsunday and Michaelmas. 

A minister elected to a parish must be formally admitted by the Presbytery 
before the term of Whitsunday (15th May), in order to entitle him to draw the 
stipend for the half-year due at that term ; or before the term of Michaelmas 
(29th September), in order to entitle him to draw the stipend for the half-year 
due at that term or at Martinmas. Mere election or appointment by the con 
gregation, though sustained by the Presbytery, is not sufficient. This rule is 
modified by the law relating to the payment of Ann, which occurs when the 
vacancy has been caused by death, as explained below. 

Stipend is not generally payable to the minister at the terms when it is due. 
The date of payment is determined by the decree of erection of the parish or by 
the decree of augmentation. The grants from the exchequer in augmentation 
of small stipends are paid at Whitsunday and Michaelmas in equal portions. 
The endowments of quoad sacra parishes are paid half-yearly at Whitsunday 
and Martinmas. Money stipend payable by heritors is frequently paid at the 
half-yearly terms, and in many cases the decree of modification and locality 
bears that payments in money shall be made at Whitsunday and Martinmas in 
equal portions. In other cases payments in money, and especially where the 
sums are small, are made annually along with the value of the victual stipend. 
Though due at the half-yearly terms, the victual stipend is not payable till the 
fiars prices of the county are struck by the sheriff in the following February 
or March. This last rule sometimes causes great inconvenience to a minister 
entering a parish. If he is admitted after the 29th September, he may have to 
serve his parish for seventeen months before he gets any portion of the year s 
stipend ; and if he is admitted after the 15th May, he may have to serve his 
parish for ten months before he gets his stipend, and even then only a half- 
year s portion is payable to him, and he must serve another year before he gets 
a full year s income. 

When a parish becomes vacant, whether by resignation, deposition, transla 
tion, or death, the minister s right to the stipend ends from and after the term of 
Whitsunday or Michaelmas immediately preceding the date of the vacancy. If 
the vacancy begins on or after the 15th May and before the 29th September, 
the first half of the stipend, due at Whitsunday, is payable to the minister or on 
his behalf, but not the second half of the stipend due at the following term. If 



THE INCOME OF THE MINISTRY. 49 

the vacancy begins on or after the 29th September, the second half of the year s 
stipend is payable to the minister, but no part of the stipend due at the following 
May will be payable to him though he may serve the parish for nearly the whole 
of the half-year ending May. Any portion of stipend due to a deceased minister, 
but not paid to him, must be included in the inventory of the minister s estate 
by his executor. 

When death is the cause of the vacancy, the portion of stipend due at the 
term succeeding that event is named "Ann" or "Annat," and is payable, one 
half to the widow, and the other half in equal portions to the children of the 
deceased minister. If there be no children, their half goes to the minister s 
nearest of kin. If there be no widow, the children get the whole of the half- 
year s stipend. If there be neither widow nor children, the whole of the half- 
year s stipend is payable to the nearest of kin. This portion of the stipend does 
not require to be included in the inventory of the minister s estate, but is paid 
direct to the heirs. 

If no minister is admitted to the parish before the term immediately succeed 
ing the date of the vacancy, unless the vacancy is caused by death, the stipend 
due at that term is payable to the Ministers Widows Fund. In the case of a 
vacancy by death, if no minister is admitted before the second term succeeding 
the date of death, which is the first term after the "Ann" is due, the stipend 
due at that second term is payable to the Widows Fund. And should a 
vacancy, whatever be its cause, be protracted, the same rule of payment to the 
Widows Fund applies to all vacant stipend. The rules determining the payment 
of the "Ann" and of vacant stipend apply only to stipend constituted by 
decree of the Teind Court, and not to any supplementary fund or funds bequeathed 
or contributed for behoof of the minister. 

When a minister is admitted as assistant and successor, the terms at which 
payments are made to him depend on the agreement between the Presbytery and 
the senior minister. 

The Aged and Infirm Ministers Fund. 

(Contributed by the Convener.) 

Convener. The Right Hon. LORD BALFOUR of Burleigh. 
Secretary. JAMES DEWAR, 22 Queen Street, Edinburgh. 

HPHIS Fund was constituted in 1879, and is designed, as its name implies, to aid 
-*- ministers of the Church who are either advanced in years or who, having 
fallen into bad health, are thereby disabled from the adequate discharge of their 
sacred duties. 

By its constitution the Fund consists of two branches, the first branch being 
devoted to cases in which the minister proposes to retire from his parish alto 
gether ; and the second branch to those in which only the appointment of an 
assistant and successor is desired, without the absolute and complete retirement 
of the aged minister. 

The usual method of procedure when an application is to be made is for the 
minister or some friend in whom he has confidence to intimate his intention to the 
Convener or Secretary of the Committee ; and also to his Presbytery, in order 
that he may receive from them a recommendation of his case to the Committee. 
After the terms of the proposed arrangement are agreed upon as between the 
Committee and the applicant and the amount of the intended grant fixed, the 
whole facts of the case are again laid before the Presbytery of the bounds and 
their sanction and approval to the arrangement are asked. If the arrangement 
proposed commends itself to the Presbytery, it is accepted by them and the 
regular steps for filling the vacancy are taken ; if not, further correspondence and 
negotiation take place until the arrangement is so modified as to be accepted by 
all concerned. 

E 



50 THE INCOME OF THE MINISTRY. 

It is intended to raise a capital sum of 100,000, and, towards that object, 
the constitution of the Fund requires that all legacies and donations shall be 
capitalised, and until the capital reaches the sum of 50,000 the surplus annual 
revenue is also to be added to it. All annual subscriptions are regarded as 
annual revenue. Subscribers or donors may select either branch of the Fund and 
apportion their gifts to whichever they prefer ; where this is not done they are 
by the constitution equally divided between the two branches, the same course 
being followed with legacies, and the accounts of each are kept separate and 
distinct. 

The Assembly of 1882 placed the Fund on the list of objects for which an annual 
collection is allowed. In 1883 the Assembly permitted the Committee to use when 
required " not more than one-sixth " of the proceeds of the collection as annual 
revenue ; this proportion was, by the Assembly of 1887, increased to one-fourth, 
and the Assembly of 1891 authorised them to use such amount as may be re 
quired eack year to meet the payments falling upon the Fund. But, " in order 
that the full sufficiency of the Capital Fund may be carefully preserved, they 
instruct the Committee to present to the Assembly in every third year a carefully 
prepared report setting forth the actuarial value of the annuities chargeable upon 
the Fund at the date of each report." 

The Committee s aid is given in the form of annuities during the life of the 
annuitant, and the amount required is met by the annual income from capital, 
the annual subscriptions, and a proportion, as above stated, of the proceeds of the 
annual collection. 

The report of the Committee presented to last General Assembly shows that 
at that time the capital of the Fund amounted to 37,224 : 10 : "i\. During the 
existence of the Fund one hundred and twenty-six annuities, varying in amount 
from 50 to 150, have been voted. During the year ending last Assembly the 
Committee expended in annuities and grants 3873 : 2 : 10. The first two 
annuities were voted in the year 1880, and forty-seven remain at the present 
time a charge upon the Fund. Previous to last year the Fund had increased at 
an average rate of about 2500 a year, but owing to the heavy demands of the 
past two years that rate is now greatly reduced, and unless greater liberality 
is shown by the Church all increase will be arrested. An increase in the Funds 
of the Committee is now absolutely necessary. 

Committee on Patronage Compensation.

Honorary Secretary. W. J. MENZIES, Esq., W.S., 123 George Street, Edinburgh. 

IN the Year-Book for 1886 there will be found a short account of Patronage in 
the Church of Scotland, and the provisions of the Act of Parliament passed 
in 1874 by which patronage was ended. 

The number of patronages in the Church at the passing of the Act was . 999 
Of this number there were held by the Crown, by corporations, and by 
other bodies not entitled to claim compensation ..... 373 



Leaving held by private patrons ........ 626 

Of these no claim for compensation was made by ..... 384 



Leaving on which compensation was claimed ...... 242 

The total sum for which claims were registered was 59,160, payable as the 
vacancy occurred in each parish, and to be paid by way of deduction as expressed 
in the Act. 

In the discussions in the General Assembly which preceded the passing of the 



THE INCOME OF THE MINISTRY. 51 

Act of 1874 the clause under which the compensation payable to patrons was 
secured on the stipends was necessarily the subject of much comment, and the 
inexpediency of charging this upon the benefice was universally acknowledged. 
But the difficulty remained of finding any other fund upon which security could 
be given, and the General Assembly of 1874 (objection being moved against the 
approval of that provision of the Bill) declared that the clause must be viewed 
only as a security for the compensation when the claim fell due, and that the 
Church would take steps to relieve the presentees. Accordingly the General 
Assembly of 1875, being the first held after the passing of the Act, appointed 
what is known as the Patronage Compensation Committee, with instructions to 
raise a fund " to relieve ministers from claims which may be made by patrons for 
compensation out of the teinds of the parish," and appointed a collection to 
enable the Committee to meet these as they arose. Hence the origin of the 
Patronage Compensation Committee. 

Even with the addition of private subscriptions the amount of the church collec 
tions has been so inadequate that the Committee, from 1879, was unable to do 
more in the first instance than repay the one-half of the sums deducted from 
presentees. By a special effort of the laity made in 1882 the arrears up to that 
date were cleared off, and, from a legacy and other sources, the arrears up to the 
end of 1889 have lately been paid. In 1895 the claims have been only partly 
paid. 

Although the number of claims outstanding is now considerably reduced, 
about one-half having been discharged, the annual claims on the funds do not 
proportionally fall, as, the age of incumbents being increased, an increased 
number of claims fall in. 

The General Assembly of 1895, on the report of the Joint-Committee, directed 
that in future the sums required by this Committee, and the General Purposes 
Committee, should be allocated on the Presbyteries of the Church, and collected 
from the various congregations along with the Presbytery and Synod expenses.

fPHERE are 1373 parochial charges in Scotland. Of these, 954 are old parishes, 
-L 40 are Parliamentary churches erected into parishes quoad sacra, and 
through the successful operation of the Endowment Scheme 379 additional parishes 
have been erected and endowed. On the whole, there are nearly 400 parishes in 
which the living, including glebe, is under 200, the exact number varying as the 
value of stipend rises or falls. 

The very insufficient provision made for so many of the parish ministers of 
Scotland has always been felt to be a source of weakness and a cause of much 
injury to the Church. In 1866 the Church of Scotland Association for Augment 
ing the Smaller Livings of the Clergy was formed at the request and with the 
cordial approval of the General Assembly. The General Assembly s Committee 
on Small Livings did not until 1877 take any active part in the work further than

52 THE INCOME OF THE MINISTRY. 

co-operating in a general way with the Association and forming the medium of 
communication between the Association and the General Assembly. But in 1877 
for the first time a general collection was made by order of the General Assembly 
in aid of the Committee, and the proceeds thereof were handed over by the Com 
mittee to the Association. In 1878 the General Assembly instructed the Com 
mittee annually to appoint a Sub-Committee for the purpose of taking part with 
the General Committee of the Association in the annual distribution of grants. 
The co-operation thus established has proved most harmonious and in every way 
beneficial. The funds of the General Assembly s Committee and of the Associa 
tion are treated as one, and are divided by a Joint Committee of Distribution 
composed of an equal number from General Assembly s Committee and from the 
general Committee of the Association. In 1881 the General Assembly constituted 
the Small Livings Scheme one of the regular Schemes of the Church. 

In apportioning amongst the small livings parishes their annual divisible 
income the Joint Committee of Distribution have regard as far as possible to 
the following conditions : 

1. That the living in each case to which a grant is given from the general fund 

is under 200. In estimating the value of a living the value of the glebe 
is included, and where there is no manse 20 is deducted from the value of 
the living. 

2. That there be in each small living parish a Local Committee sending con 

tributions to the Small Livings Fund. 

3. That the missionary schemes of the Church are supported by the parish. 

4. The Joint Committee of Distribution have considered themselves bound to 

have regard to any special circumstances of necessity, such as the existence 
of an assistant and successor in a small living parish, or the pressure of any 
exceptional demands upon the liberality of the parish or the professional 
income of the minister, in determining the amount of grant to be given. 

The number of parishes which received grants in 1895 was 333. The grants, 
including local contributions, amounted to 8475, in addition to which there 
were direct payments made to certain parishes by heritors and congregations, 
and reported, to the amount of 327. More than 5000 per annum additional 
is still required to bring up all small livings to 200. 

NEW BRANCH OF SMALL LIVINGS FUND. 

A Branch of the Fund has been instituted for the purpose of securing the 

permanent augmentation of Small Livings in those parishes which shall avail 

themselves of the terms offered. 

The following are the conditions on which the administration proceeds : 

I. Payments out of the new branch of the Small Livings Fund are made by 

the Joint Committee of Distribution, in so far as the money in hand may permit, 

on the following terms, viz. 

1. Each application is dealt with on its own merits, and with special reference 

to the circumstances of the parish, in a fair and equitable manner ; and 
all small livings parishes, without exception, may apply for grants. 

2. No grant is given until the Joint Committee are satisfied, upon such 

reports as they may require, that the amount of local contribution to meet 
the grant is as large as could reasonably be expected. 

3. While offering special encouragement towards securing a permanent aug 

mentation up to 200 a year, it is competent for the Joint Committee 
to give assistance where this is found to be impracticable, always pro 
vided that no parish shall receive a grant unless a capital sum of not less 
than 100 is raised locally. 
II. The amount of grant voted to any parish, together with the sum raised 



MINISTERIAL SOCIETIES AND INSTITUTIONS. 53 

locally, is invested for behoof of the parish in the same manner as that followed 
by the General Assembly s Endowment Committee. 

III. The amount of grant will in no case exceed 500. 

IV. Funds at present invested for behoof of a parish are available as part of 
the local contribution. 

Subscriptions may be paid in one sum or by instalments, and may be destined 
to a particular parish ; or subscribers may contribute a certain sum for each of 
the First Fifty Parishes which shall avail themselves of the above conditions. 

Subscribers of a certain sum lor each of the First Fifty Parishes will not be 
asked for more than a tenth part of tlieir subscription in any one year ; and sub 
scriptions, if not otherwise arranged, will lapse at death. 

This new movement has received an encouraging measure of support, and has 
been greatly helped by the liberal assistance of the Baird Trust. Within a period 
of six years 35,831 has been set apart for the permanent augmentation of forty- 
two small livings of which twenty-three are thereby removed from the list. The 
total amount of subscriptions, etc, for the new branch up to date (including 
local contributions for special parishes, legacies, Baird Trust grants, etc.) is 
38,066.

THIS Trust was founded by the late Mrs. Elizabeth Paton or Stewart of St. 
Fillans in the county of Ayr, sister of the Rev. Robert Paton, D.D., St. 
David s, Glasgow, and widow of William Stewart, Esq., of St. Fillans. The 
Patrons are : The Trustees acting under her settlement ; the Moderator of the 
General Assembly ; the ministers of St. Mungo s, the Park, and St. David s, 
Glasgow ; First Charge, Ayr ; and Largs. The Trust is founded for the following 
purposes, viz. : 

(1) For the relief of aged and infirm ministers of the Church of Scotland who 
are at least sixty years of age ; to be paid to them annually, for life, or for such 
time as the Patrons think fit, either as retiring allowances, or for enabling them 
to employ assistants. 

(2) In payment of sums not exceeding 100 to ministers of the Church of 
Scotland who may be in feeble health (whether sixty years of age or not), to 
enable them to leave their parishes for a year, or for such period as may be fixed 
by the Patrons, in order to obtain rest and recruit their health. 

The Patrons meet early in May and November. 

Applications for grants to be considered at these meetings should be lodged 
with the Secretary (who will supply schedules) not later than 15th April or 15th

rPHIS Society was instituted at Edinburgh in the year 1790 by a few persons, 
J- sons of clergymen and others, and was incorporated by royal charter in 1792. 
Its object, as explained in the resolutions agreed to by the founders and as 
expressed in the charter, was to raise a permanent fund, the annual revenue or 
produce of which was to be applied for the benefit of the sons of the clergy of the 
Church of Scotland requiring assistance, particularly during that period which 
commences with their introduction either to a university or to business. It was 
also contemplated that, when the funds permitted, the benefits might be extended 
to the daughters of the clergy, to enable them to acquire professional qualifications 
or advantages suited to their condition, and some years afterwards this was carried 
out. No grant is given to daughters under the age of fifteen, and it is given for 
not more than two years, and for the purpose of finishing their education. 

In the year 1869 the late George Robertson Chaplin, Esq., left a sum to the 
Society, "the interest whereof to be applied by the said Society for the benefit 
of the Daughters of the Clergy of the said Church by granting annuities or dona 
tions to such of them as may appear to be necessitous, whether widows, or un 
married, but more especially to the aged and infirm."

Scotland and of Professors hi the Scottish Universities. It was projected by the 
late Rev. Dr. Esdaile, Minister of the Parish of Rescobie, who acted as secretary 
from its institution until his death in 1880. 

The College stands within its own grounds, extending to 2 acres, having an 
extensive view to the south, including the Blackford, Braid, and Peutland Hills. 
The situation is open and salubrious, and combines the advantages of town and 
country, and both in its position and aiTangements the health of the inmates has 
been most carefully considered. Besides a well-equipped gymnasium, there is 
space for four tennis courts and croquet ground. 

An endowment of upwards of 5000 has been secured from donations, legacies, 
etc., and it is now desired to increase this amount so as to provide scholarships 
and otherwise promote the work of the College. 

There are four small Bursaries in connection with the Edinburgh University 
Local Examinations, viz. (1) 5 to the intrant holding the highest pass ; (2) 5 
to the pupil in College passing with highest number of marks in senior special 
subjects ; (3) 3 to the pupil passing highest in junior special subjects ; and 
(4) 2 to the pupil passing highest iu preliminary subjects. 

It is upwards of thirty -two years since the College was opened, and it is 
readily filled with the complement of pupils, fifty in number. The charge for 
board and education is rather under 40 per annum. 

Grand-daughters of Ministers and Daughters of Professional Gentlemen who are 
members of the Church of Scotland, may also be admitted on special terms after 
the 1st of August ; till which date Daughters of Ministers and Professors have

THIS Society was founded at a meeting held in Glasgow on 31st January 1865. 
Its object, as set forth in its constitution, is the study of the liturgies 
ancient and modern of the Christian Church, with a view to the preparation and 
publication of forms of prayer for public worship, and services for the administra 
tion of the sacraments, the celebration of marriage, the burial of the dead, etc." 
It prepared and published the well-known Book of Common Order, of which a 
sixth edition has now appeared ; and issued some years ago An Order of Divine 
Service for Children for use either in church or Sunday school. This last publica 
tion contains responsive services for five Sundays with Appendix, and is bound 
up with a musical edition of the Children s Hymnal. 

The Society has also lately issued a volume of Daily Offices for Morning and

giving a prize, to be called "the Haldane Prize," to the theological students of 
the Church of Scotland for the best essay on some subject to be afterwards 
decided. 



II. THE ELDERSHIP. 

rpHE article on the Courts of the Church, p. 19, gives the method of election 
J- of elders, their duties, and their position in the Church Courts. The Act 
of Assembly on the subject enacts " that no person shall be chosen or nominated 
for the Eldership unless he is a man of good life and godly conversation, tender 
and circumspect in his walk, punctual in attending upon ordinances, strict in his 
observation of the Lord s Day, and in regularly keeping up the worship of God 
in his family ; one who will be careful of the nock, and an example unto them 
in sobriety, meekness, and holiness, abstaining from all appearance of evil." 
Further, he must be twenty-one years of age, and a member of the congregation 
(which includes the congregation of a chapel in the parish) ; if he does not live 
in the parish he must either reside in it at least six weeks annually, or be an 
heritor, or an heritor s heir-apparent, or have been twelve months a communi 
cant in the Church of Scotland provided always, if he resides in another parish 
(a city or town to be held as a parish) " that the consent of the kirk-session 
of that parish shall have first been obtained." He cannot be a member of more 
than one kirk-session. 

Au elder from every kirk-session attends the Presbytery and Synod. He is 
appointed annually at a meeting called for the purpose, and his term of office 
expires with the expiry of the month of June.

" rpHE Glasgow Elders Association in connection with the Church of Scotland, 
-L for promoting the interests and extending the usefulness of that Church," 
was founded in 1854. The leading objects of the Association as defined in the 
constitution are (1) "The maintenance and promotion of union and friendly 
intercourse between the lay members of the different Kirk-Sessions within the 
City of Glasgow and its suburbs ; and (2) The adoption and support, so far as 
the existing means and resources of the Association will admit, of any measures 
or schemes, whether of a local or general character, which may be considered 
beneficial and calculated to promote the interests or extend the usefulness of the 
Church of Scotland ; " and with reference to the latter of these objects it is pro- 



58 SOCIETIES FORMED BY ELDERS. 

vided that " one special object of the Association shall be the promotion and 
extension of Home Missionary efforts in any of the more destitute localities within 
the city and suburbs which may not otherwise be reached or provided for." 

The Association consists of 650 members. The qualification for membership 
is the holding of the office of elder, or duly ordained deacon, in one of the Kirk- 
Sessions within the City of Glasgow or its suburbs. 

During the year 1894 the sum of 125 was expended in grants in aid of 
Missions in the poorer districts of the city. A scheme has also been set on foot for 
the establishment of Parochial Assistants in parishes too populous for the minister 
to overtake the charge of the nou-churchgoing inhabitants along with his own 
congregational work. Three of these Assistantships are at present in operation.

THIS Association was started in 1881, and embraces the Presbyteries of Kelso, 
Jedburgh, Earlston, and Selkirk. Above 100 elders are enrolled as members. 

The objects of the Union are generally (1) To promote Christian fellowship 
and acquaintance with one another as Office-bearers in the Church. (2) To 
stimulate one another to the performance of the duties laid on each by his office, 
to be a helper of the clergy in the great work of the Church the advancement 
of the Redeemer s kingdom. (3) To collect and diffuse information as to the 
best methods of organising and keeping up agencies in parishes for interesting 
the people in Christian work, and particularly in the schemes of the Church. 
(4) To discuss matters affecting the interests of the Church of Scotland generally, 
and more especially matters bearing on the interests of the Church in the district, 
but avoiding political and controversial questions. 

A nominal subscription of Is. per annum constitutes membership. 

The Association holds two meetings in the year one at St. Boswells, the 
other at some convenient centre, each of the Presbyteries being visited. These 
meetings are well attended, and create much interest. The Association has had 
a marked influence in advancing the objects for which it was organised.

Church of Scotland, or Home for Girls. 

Chairman. LEONARD Gow, Esq. 

Secretary. Rev. EDWARD WALTERS, 31 St. Vincent Crescent. 

Treasurer. THOMAS WATSON, Esq., 50 West Regent Street, Glasgow. 

THIS Association was started thirty-two years ago, and its chief work .is train 
ing orphan and destitute girls as domestic servants. The Home is at 
13 Canning Place, Glasgow. 

The income is derived from subscriptions and donations. The Treasurer will 
be glad to receive any contributions which may be forwarded. 



III. THE DIACONATE. 

(Contributed by the Rev. WM. MAIR, D.D., Earlston.) 

DEACONS have no right to sit with the kirk-session unless when specially 
called (by its Moderator on its authority) to deliberate as to the financial 
affairs of the church or congregation ; nor in any event to take part in other 
business of the kirk-session, or in the administration of funds left and committed 
specially to the kirk-session under a trust, which, if that body undertakes, it is 
bound to fulfil. 

Their proper functions are the collecting (and finding, when necessary, assistant 
collectors) of funds for church or charitable purposes, and the distribution of 
these ; and though sitting and deliberating with the kirk-session as to all such 
matters, when called as aforesaid, and giving their advice and assistance in the 
distribution of such funds, they have no vote even as to these, in that court, but 
are to be guided by its judgment. 

This view of " the rights and functions of deacons in relation to kirk-sessions " 
was declared by the General Assembly of 1888 (Sess. 11) to be "in accordance 
with the law and constitution of the Church." It may be added that, turn 
where we will for a definition of the kirk-session, early or late, we find that, 
with no reference to deacons, it is said to consist of the minister, or ministers, 
and elders. To the same effect is the statement of Baillie s Historical Vindi 
cation, " Albeit they [deacons] be present in the eldership to receive their 
directions for the poor, yet they do not voice in any well-governed eldership." 



60 THE HOME MISSION SCHEME. 




THE various departments of the Church s work beyond those proper to the Kirk- 
Session, Presbytery, and Synod, are carried on by Committees of the General 
Assembly. Besides their ordinary members, to many of the Committees comes 
a representative from each Presbytery. Each Committee presents an annual 
report of its work to the General Assembly, which gives a deliverance on the 
report and reappoints the Committee. 

The stated meetings of the Committees are, for convenience, held during weeks 
in which the Commission of Assembly is authorised to sit ; viz. the weeks con 
taining the second Wednesdays of March, August, and November. 

Seven of the Committees are termed " Schemes " of the Church, for which there 
is a 

Joint Committee 

(Convener. Rev. ARCHIBALD SUOTT, D.D., Edinburgh.) 

for managing all business common to them. For example, it takes charge of the 
Church Offices, which are the joiut property of those Committees, and has the 
appointment of the General Collector, Auditor, and of all officials in the Church 
Offices. It is also charged with the duty of reporting to the General Assembly 
on applications for special collections, and of disposing of all financial questions 
affecting the Committees of the General Assembly. The Mission Record and 
Morning Rays are managed by the Committee. The Joint Committee is composed 
of twenty-seven members, being the conveners and other representatives of the 
different Committees. 

Those in charge of the different Committees and Church Societies will speak for 
themselves in the following articles.

1. Its Purpose. The Home Mission exists for a twofold purpose : (1) to bring 
Public Worship and Ordinances within reach of those who, owing to distance from 
church, or from other circumstances, would otherwise be without adequate oppor 
tunity of sharing in them and are therefore in danger of lapsing into religious 
indifference ; (2) as an Evangelistic Agency, to carry on work among those 
who are living careless of ordinances, pressing upon them the offers of the 
Gospel, not only at public services in church, but by personal visitation in their 
own homes. It acts on the Territorial Principle, and in all cases the work done 
by its agents is supplementary to the full duties of parish ministers. The steady 
increase of our population, and the fact that, owing to the development of new 
industries, that increase takes place more largely at certain centres, makes it im 
possible in many cases either that the parish church can accommodate all who 
desire to worship in it, or that the parish minister can exercise a due pastoral 
care over the many thousands living in his parish. In such cases the Home 
Mission helps to provide church accommodation and ministerial service, until a 
newly-endowed parish can be erected, if such should be desirable. Thus, its 
aim is to prevent falling away from ordinances for lack of opportunity, as well as 
to reclaim those who, through circumstances, have fallen away. 



THE HOME MISSION SCHEME. 61 

2. Its History. For a short account of its origin and progress see the Year- 
Book for 1886 and 1887. 

3. Its Work. There are four departments of work. 

(a) Church Building.- The Home Mission helps to provide additional church 
accommodation where needed. By its aid about 656 churches have been erected 
or enlarged. When the necessity for an additional church has been made clear, 
the Committee votes a grant towards the cost at the rate of so much for every 
worshipper the building will accommodate. This grant, however, seldom amounts 
to more than about one-sixth of the entire cost, the remainder being subscribed 
or raised locally. Last year grants amounting to 4024 were voted towards the 
erection or enlargement of 24 churches and halls which are used as separate 
places of worship, the whole cost of these being 49,247. By means of this, 
accommodation was provided for 7396 additional worshippers. 

(6) Mission Churches. These are churches built to meet the requirements of 
the population, but not yet endowed. In such cases when the congregation are 
unable themselves to provide wholly for the maintenance of ordinances, a grant 
in aid is given from the Home Mission Funds. Public worship and ordinances 
are regularly maintained in these churches by ordained ministers or duly qualified 
licentiates, each labouring territorially in a distinctly denned district ; and in 
connection with all of them there are Sabbath schools, prayer meetings, Bible 
classes, and other kindred agencies. Last year there were 69 of these mission 
churches on the Committee s list, with a certified average attendance of 13,886 
each Lord s day, the total number actually communicating during the year being 
11,697. These churches were maintained at a cost (for ministers salaries) of 
8018, towards which the sum of 2840 was voted by the Home Mission 
Committee. 

(c) Mission Stations. At these there is not usually a separate church erected, 
but a missionary is stationed, who, besides visiting from house to house, conducts 
evangelistic meetings in some hall, school, or other available building, carries on 
Sabbath school, prayer meetings, etc., and endeavours in various ways to bring 
those whom he can reach under the influence of the Gospel. These stations are 
very varied in character. Some pf them are in remote rural districts some in 
mining and manufacturing centres some among the fishing populations on our 
coasts and islands, and some among the crowded populations of our cities and 
large towns. The agents employed vary according to the circumstances of the 
district. In many cases the Missionary is a Licentiate, in others a Lay Mission 
ary, a Catechist, or a Scripture Reader is found most serviceable, while at several 
places Students of Divinity are employed in this work during the summer months. 
Altogether the number of these mission stations last year was 88, the average 
attendance at the Sabbath meetings and services being over 6839, and 2320 
persons partook of the Lord s Supper. The total amount paid in salaries at 
these mission stations was 4745, of which the proportion paid by the Home 
Mission Committee was 2637. 

(d) Parish Missionaries. The object of this new department of the work of 
evangelisation is to enable ministers of densely -peopled localities to secure 
additional missionary agencies, by utilising to a greater extent the Parish Church 
as a centre of mission work. The regulations under which it is carried on pro 
vide that no grant shall be voted by the Committee until they are satisfied that 
the Parish Minister is not thereby to be relieved of duties already being fulfilled 
by him, or which he ought to fulfil, and that it shall be expressly devoted to the 
securing of additional aggressive work in a parish, the necessities of which cannot 
be overtaken by the Parish Minister alone. Last year, under this branch, grants 
amounting to 1620 were made to thirty-nine parish missionaries. The total 
population of the parishes in which they are employed amounts to 437,334. 

4. Women s Work. With the approval of the General Assembly a Women s 
Association has been recently formed whose object is to unite the women of the 



62 THE ENDOWMENT SCHEME. 

Church on behalf of Home Missions, and particularly to help in providing for 
populous and necessitous parishes the services of Deaconesses or other trained 
and qualified women workers (see below). 

5. Its Management. The affairs of the Home Mission are entrusted to a 
Committee which consists at present of 85 ministers and 45 elders appointed by 
the General Assembly, while each Presbytery of the Church elects one member. 
This Committee meets statedly three times a year, viz. in March, July, and 
November. All the Home Mission agencies are under the supervision and control 
of the Courts of the Church, and grants are made only in response to applications 
duly attested and recommended by -these courts. All grants are made supple 
mentary to the sum raised locally, and are voted only after the Committee have 
been satisfied that those interested have made every reasonable effort to provide 
the necessary amount.

THIS branch of Home Mission work, which was sanctioned by the General 
Assembly of 1893, has been formed in order to supply the necessity for 
qualified women workers in many of the poor and populous parishes of Scotland. 
It is intended that the minister and kirk-session shall select the agent they wish as 
a worker, and submit the nomination to this Association, which will, if necessary, 
supplement, or, in cases of needy districts, altogether provide the salary. To 
prevent forming fresh organisations through the country, the Association hopes 
to work with the help of the Woman s Guild ; and in such a way as not to 
weaken any existing institution. 

The Association has now formed thirteen Presbyterial Auxiliaries, and besides 
these a large number of parishes are contributing to its funds. 

The Association is now able to support five Parish Sisters and to give grants 
towards the salaries of four more. Besides these nine ladies, of whom two are 
Deaconesses of the Church, there is one working in Glasgow at her own charges, 
and one in St. Cuthbert s, Edinburgh, where the funds are raised locally. 

Full information as to the work of the Association may be obtained from the 
Secretary.

THE Endowment Scheme (begun in 1847, mainly through the labours of the Rev. 
Professor James Robertson) is the complement of the Home Mission Scheme. 
The Home Mission Scheme builds churches to meet the needs of an increasing 
population, and supports them temporarily ; the Endowment Scheme then comes 
in and makes the districts attached to them permanent parishes. After a church 
has been built and a congregation formed, the Endowment Scheme, by ensuring 



CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WORK COMMITTEE. 63 

endowment and the connection quoad sacra of a territorial district, secures to the 
people a parochial ministry, with all the advantages of its organisation, kirk-session, 
and permanent religious ordinances. 

At last meeting of the General Assembly the Committee were able to report 
the erection during the past year of FIVE NEW PARISHES. These were 

Greengairs, in the Presbytery of Hamilton. 

Southwick, in the Presbytery of Dumfries. 

Rendal, in the Presbytery of Kirkwall. 

Blairdaft , iu the Presbytery of Garioch. 

Dundurn (St. Fillaus), in the Presbytery of Auchterarder. 

In these churches accommodation is provided for 1776 worshippers, and the 
total number of communicants in the congregations already formed in them is 
780. The completion of these brings up the number of new parishes erected 
under the Endowment Scheme to 392 exclusive of 40 Parliamentary Churches 
which have been erected into parishes without the aid of the Committee. The 
total amount subscribed to secure the Endowments alone has been over 
1,427,000, apart from the cost of the fabrics. 

The amount required as the minimum Endowment is 120 per annum (or 
100 with a manse). To secure this a capital sum of 3000 was formerly 
required in each case, and of this amount it was usual for the Committee to give 
one half. In recent years, however, the General Assembly has decided that the 
ordinary amount of endowment shall be 160 (or 140 with a manse), and the 
Committee has been instructed not to contribute to the erection of any parish 
with the smaller endowment unless they are fully satisfied that the circumstances 
are such that there will be an adequate living without the higher endowment 
being provided. This change, while in many respects eminently desirable, involves 
the raising of 4000 in each case, instead of 3000 as formerly, and a correspond 
ing increase is made on the Committee s grant. It must also be kept in mind 
that, owing to the increased price of good securities, 1000 will not now yield 
40 per annum, and, accordingly, the Committee s grants, which were formerly 
1500 or 2000, are usually increased to 1750 or 2500. Unless, therefore, an 
earnest and vigorous effort is made throughout the Church to meet the increased 
requirements, the effect of these changes will be seriously to retard the progress 
of endowment. 

In May 1887, the General Assembly instructed the Committee to take steps as 
speedily as possible for the endowment of other Fifty new parishes, and towards 
the endowment of these, subscriptions to the amount of over 16,000 have been 
already intimated. Thirty-eight of these churches have been already endowed, and 
there are at present on the Committee s list nineteen chapels to which grants 
have been promised but not yet paid. Several of these have almost secured the 
amount required for the proportion of the endowment, which requires to be raised 
locally, and it will be a matter of great regret if their further progress should be 
stopped because the Committee have not at their disposal the funds required to 
pay the grants voted.

further, to consider and report as to the best means of promoting evangelistic

efforts, and of so guiding those engaged in them as to secure their co-operation 
with the office-bearers of the Church, in order that the ministry of the Church 
may be aided by voluntary Christian efforts, and that the pastoral superintendence 
of her ministers may be enjoyed by those whom such efforts have gathered in." 
In accordance with those aims, the Committee have frequently, for some time 
almost yearly, sent down to ministers and kirk-sessions Queries on important 
matters bearing on the Life and Work of the Church, and the information received 
in answer has been embodied in the reports to the General Assembly. A Digest 
of the reports up to 1881 was prepared by the Rev. George Wilson, and can be had 
from the Secretary. 

Since 1869 the Church has been pleased to impose on the Committee work of 
a more executive kind. We give a short statement as to each of the departments 
of work at present undertaken by them. Each division is referred to a separate 
Sub-Committee. From time to time, however, Queries are still authorised. 

DEPUTATIONS. 
Convener of Sub-Committee. Rev. THOMAS YOUNO, B.D., Ellon. 

This Sub-Committee was originally appointed to give effect to the deliverance 
of the General Assembly authorising the sending deputations to parishes in which 
their visits would be acceptable to minister and people, and likely to impart fresh 
interest, life, and vigour to Christian work in the parishes visited. The Sub 
committee have sent deputies to thinly-peopled places, where their presence has 
been encouraging ; and to dense centres of population and places of summer 
resort, where they have helped to bear a burden otherwise beyond the strength 
of the resident minister. 

For several years past this phase of the Committee s work has been confined to 
sending deputies to the Herring Fishing Stations. The deputies have aided 
the parish minister in conducting services for the immense concourse of fishing 
people at certain places in certain seasons, and visiting them. A large number of 
ladies have likewise been sent, to aid by their counsel and sympathy the thousands 
of young and inexperienced girls who, most of them far from home, amidst many 
temptations, are employed in the fish-curing industry. All the deputies gave 
their services gratuitously. At several of the stations "Girls Rests" reading 
and recreation rooms have been instituted, and means have been provided for 
spending idle afternoons or dull evenings pleasantly and profitably. 

MISSION WEEKS. 

r,, .o n r c,,7, r nm ^tn^ ( Rev. GEORGE WILSON, Edinburgh. 

ttee - \Rev. ROBERT STEVENSON, B. A. (Cantab.), B.D., Gargunnock. 

This Sub- Committee exists for the purpose of assisting ministers in the organ 
isation of Mission - weeks ; and of collecting and disseminating information 
bearing on such aggressive work. It has likewise arranged for various Confer 
ences of ministers and elders, for the purpose of united prayer and the deepening 
of the spiritual life. The work carried on by it is most markedly growing ; and 
its widening extent seems to have involved no loss of spiritual depth. 

The great object of a Mission-week is the public and persistent proclamation 
day after day of the Gospel of Christ as a message of salvation to the unbeliever, 
and of present power for a life of godliness and Christian service. Very many of 
these missions have been conducted in the Church of Scotland in 1895 ; and 
have led to encouraging and permanent results in parishes differing widely in 
situation and character. So large indeed was the number of applications that 
the committee were led to consider the possibility of having a minister set free 
altogether from his parish for three months, to give his strength to mission-preaching 
during that period. By a happy concurrence of events they were enabled to 



CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WOKK COMMITTEE. 65 

secure the services of the Rev. A. T. Donald of Mertoun to act as the pioneer of 
this iiew departure ; and, at the moment of printing, Mr. Donald is, with the 
consent of his Presbytery, engaged in the fifth mission of the series undertaken by 
him, and reports are coining in of great interest and blessing springing from the 
work already done. It is fully believed that this is only the first step upon a 
path of progress. The committee are always glad to assist any minister who 
communicates with them in organising a mission, or in securing a mission preacher. 
They are willing to make themselves responsible for the travelling expenses and 
pidpit supply of Missioiiers invited by them. The special attention of any who 
desire information on the subject in question is directed to two booklets by the 
Rev. George Wilson, one Hints to the Mission Preacher, the other, Hints to the 
Parish Minister. It is expected that other helpful literature will be ready before 
long. 

The last Conference organised by this sub- committee was held in Craiglockhart 
Hydropathic, October 7-9, 1895. There was an attendance of between fifty and 
sixty ministers and elders. The Rev. George Wilson presided ; and the subject 
of conference was, "Union with Christ." 

All communications on the work of this committee are to be addressed to the 
Rev. R. Stevenson, Gargunnock, Stirling. 

WELFARE OF FARM SERVANTS. 
Convener of Sub-Committee. Rev. A. IRVINE ROBERTSON, B.D. 

Owing to the serious character of the reports of the Commission on the Religious 
Condition of the People respecting the irreligion and neglect of Church ordinances 
among the younger farm servants in many rural districts of the laud, this Sub- 
Committee was appointed to aid those country ministers who should desire help 
in carrying out the explicit injunctions of the General Assembly of 1893, to give 
special attention and care to this class of parishioners. 

During the two years of its existence the Sub-Committee has supplied deputies 
to several parishes where help was required. These deputies have held special 
meetings for farm servants, and, while preaching the Gospel in its simplicity, have 
conveyed the greeting of the General Assembly through its Committee on Christian 
Life and Work, and pointed out to farm servants and their employers the spiritual 
responsibilities resting upon them in their mutxial relations. It is encouraging to 
know that already the Committee s endeavours have been blessed with considerable 
success. Where visits have been paid by deputies, the tokens they afford of the 
General Assembly s interest in the spiritual wellbeing of rural parishes has 
strengthened the hands of the parish minister and awakened fresh interest in the 
Church and the Gospel among the agricultural poor. 

All who desire the aid of a deputy s visit are requested to apply to the Convener 
of Sub-Committee as above, at The Manse, Clackmannan. 

DEVOTIONAL MEETINGS. 

Convener of Sub-Committee. Rev. THOMAS NICOL, D.D. 

This Sub-Committee takes charge (under the Assembly s direction) of the 
devotional meetings of ministers and elders of the Church held during the sittings 
of the General Assembly. 

" LIFE AND WORK" THE PARISH MAGAZINE. 

Convener of Sub-Committee. Rev. JOHN M MURTRIE, D.D., Edinburgh. 
Magazine Treasurer. MOWBRAY DOUGLAS, Esq., C.A., 15 Hill Street, Edinburgh. 

With the January number of 1892, Life and Work was enlarged to 20 
pages, without increase of price, thus affording room for important improvements. 
It is seventeen years since the first number of this Magazine was issued. The 
circulation is monthly above 100,000, and it is believed that the Magazine reaches 

F 



CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WORK COMMITTEE. 



at least 1000 parishes. In nearly 400 of these there is issued along with the 
Magazine, either regularly or occasionally, a Parochial Supplement. In some 
cases two or more parishes, or a whole presbytery, combine in issuing a supplement. 
The Committee also print and distribute a Gaelic Supplement and a Supplement for 
Soldiers and Sailors without extra charge, wherever those classes of community are 
found for whom they are specially intended. There are also special supplements 
for the Young Men s Guild and the Woman s Guild : the Magazine, with those two 
supplements, bears the title of the " Guild Life and Work," and in this form, costing 
only an additional halfpenny a month, it has a rapidly increasing circulation. 
The Magazine has also a large foreign circulation, with local supplements, in India, 
America, and Africa. The Committee has devoted a considerable part of the 
profit to the encouragement of supplements, and has given more favourable terms, 
as its financial position has become more assured. Parishes taking 100 copies and 
upwards monthly, receive 6 pages of free Supplement, and 3 pages if they take only 
50 copies. Supplements may be printed locally, and the same allowance is made 
on account of local supplements as on those printed by Messrs. R. & R. Clark, 
Limited. The Committee also relieve ministers from outlay incurred for carriage. 

GUILD TEXT-BOOKS AND THE GDILD LIBKAUY. 
Convener of Sub-Committee. Rev. J. A. M CLYMONT, D.D., Aberdeen. 

This branch of the Life and Work Committee s operations owes its origin to 
the Annual Guild Competitions. It was felt that if text-books by ministers of 
the Church on subjects suitable for Guild meetings and Bible Class teaching were 
put within easy reach of the Guild members and prescribed as subjects for exam 
ination, it would tend to widen the interest in the competitions and at the same 
time promote the higher interests of the Guild. Nine of these have been already 
issued : (1) The Church of Scotland a Sketch of its History, by Rev. P. M Adani 
Muir, D.D., Edinburgh (1890) ; (2) A Handbook of Christian Evidences, by 
Principal Stewart, D.D., University of St. Andrews (1891) ; (3) The New Testa

In 1881 the General Assembly authorised the formation of this Guild, with the 
object, as expressed in its constitution, of " uniting all societies, Bible classes, and 
other associated bodies connected with the Church of Scotland, which have for 
their object to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by promoting the spiritual and intel 
lectual life of young men, and by encouraging them to undertake works of Christian 
usefulness." Each parochial branch is free to adopt the form best suited to its 
local requirements. Hence the Guild includes : Fellowship Associations, Bible 
Classes, Literary Societies, Psalmody Associations, Sabbath School Associations, 
with various sub-sections for specific purposes such as Athletics, Temperance, 
Purity, etc. 

Each branch is responsible for the details of its own work. LOCAL COUNCILS 
(of which there are now 19), composed of ministers and delegates from the various 
branches in their respective districts, further the work of the branches. A Central 
COMMITTEE OF MANAGEMENT, elected partly by the Christian Life and Work Com 
mittee and partly by the Guild (through its Annual Conference and its Local 
Councils), takes charge of the whole. 

An important factor in the Guild work is the system of Letters of Commenda 
tion. By these a member changing his place of residence carries with him a 
letter introducing him to the branch at that place where he is going. By a system 
of Daily Bible Readings the members of the Guild are encouraged and helped in 
the regular private reading of the Word of God and in intercessory prayer for 
one another. The Committee have arranged a system of Examinations and 
Competitions, and an interesting Guild Magazine (in the form of a 12-page 
supplement to Life and Work, and entitled Guild Life and Work, price d. 
extra) is issued monthly. (This supplement is the organ of both Guilds.) 

At the Fourteenth Annual Conference, which was held in Paisley in 
October 1895, over 400 delegates were present, representing all parts of the country, 
and the meetings were very large, enthusiastic, and successful. Sir Charles 
Dalrymple, Bart., M.P., presided at a large public meeting addressed by the 
Very Rev. Professor Charteris, D.D. ; the Rev. J. A. Graham, M.A. (Guild 
Missionary) ; Sir J. Stirling Maxwell, Bart, M.P. ; Alex. Moffatt, Esq., Advocate. 
The Secretary reported a membership of 25,609, enrolled in 694 different branches, 
being an increase of 1288 members and 51 branches during the year. Six 
years ago (in 1888) the Guild instituted a Foreign Mission at Kalimpong in 
India, and the Rev. J. A. Graham, M.A., formerly Secretary to the Guild, was 
sent out as its first Missionary. Under his care the work of the Mission has 
increased so much that the services of a medical missionary were deemed neces 
sary, and at the Conference held at Edinburgh, 1894, C. F. Ponder, M.B., C.M., 
was appointed in that capacity to complete the staff. 

The Secretary will be glad to furnish all needed information regarding the Guild. 

ORGANISATION OF WOMEN S WORK. 

In 1885 the Committee drew attention to this subject as "one of pressing 
interest," to which allusion had been made in former Reports (1881 may be noted), 



68 CHRISTIAN LIFE AND WORK COMMITTEE. 

and they were directed by the General Assembly to inquire and report with sug 
gestions. The Scheme submitted and approved by the Assembly included 

I. THE CHURCH OF SCOTLAND WOMAN S GUILD. 

Hon. President. The DOWAGER LADY ABERDEEN. 

President. Mrs. CHARTERIS, Cameron House, Edinburgh. 

Deaconess Deputies. Miss K. H. DAVIDSON, Miss II. R. ANDERSON, and Miss G. ROBERTSON. 

Secretary and Treasurer. Miss M INEOY, 56 Dick Place, Edinburgh. 

The general object of this Guild is " to unite together all women who are en 
gaged in the service of Christ in connection with the Church, or desire to give 
help to any practical Christian work in the parish, as well as all who are receiving 
Christian teaching and looking forward to Christian service." Members are en 
rolled individually, and receive a card with rules which they promise to observe. 
337 Branches of the Woman s Guild, with an aggregate membership of 24,924, 
have been already formed. Miss K. H. Davidson, Miss Anderson, and Miss 
Robertson, Deaconesses of the Church of Scotland, have for several years given 
their services for the promotion of Women s Work, and each year visit, as 
Deputies, a large number of places to give information and start Branches. 
Other ladies also serve the Committee in this department. Those who are 
unable to give regular service in a parish, but are anxious to co - operate 
individually, can be enrolled as Auxiliary Members on application to Miss 
Robertson, D.C.S., 20 Kilmaurs Road, Edinburgh. The Secretary of the Guild, 
Miss M Inroy, 56 Dick Place, Edinburgh, will be glad to give information in 
regard to starting new branches. 

The Guild holds at intervals a Conference of its members. The FOURTH was 
held in Aberdeen in April 1895, and was attended by delegates from all parts of 
the country. In addition to several interesting Diets of Conference, a large public 
meeting was held in the Music Hall, presided over by the Very Rev. Dr. 
MacGregor, D.D., St. Cuthbert s. Three years ago the Guild agreed to support 
a Medical Mission at Kalimpong as an addition to the Mission acquired there 
in 1888 by the Young Men s Guild. A hospital was built in 1893 and is main 
tained by the Guild. On 30th April 1895 Miss Annie Ponder was appointed as 
European Head Nurse. 

Affiliated to the Woman s Guild is a Union among the young ladies of the 
Church called the Fellow-Workers Union for Foreign Missions, the object of 
which is to support the Church s Female Missions to the Heathen and the Jews. 
Lady Victoria Campbell is Hon. President, with a representative Committee. 
Miss Hunter, 49 Moray Place, Edinburgh, is Secretary, and will be glad to enrol 
members and give information. 

II. SENIOR WORKERS. 

This Association as first planned was intended to consist of Experienced 
Workers not less than twenty-five years of age, of whose Christian character and 
devotion to service for a period of not less than four years the kirk-session are 
satisfied. Its Rules, etc., are being reconsidered by the Committee on Christian 
Life and Work, with a view to readjustment. 

III. DEACONESSES AND THE DEACONESS HOUSE. 

Particulars of this department will be found in Miss Maxwell s article, at page

The necessary expenses of the Committee were, until 1885, provided for by 
donations and contributions from friends. The Magazine has always been self- 
supporting, and of late years, as the work and consequent burden on the Com 
mittee have been increasing, it has made contribution to the general expenses, 
but this again has grown smaller than it was, owing to the increased size of 
the Magazine and more liberal grants for Supplements. The burden of the 
necessary expenditure requiring further aid, the General Assembly from time to 
time authorised collections to be made, and afterwards showed its confidence in 
the Committee by placing it on the annual rota. 

The financial position at the close of the year 1894, as appears from the Report 
to last General Assembly, is satisfactory. " 

There was a surplus on the year of ordinary income over ordinary expenditure 



70 COMMITTEE IN AID OF THE HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS. 

of 250 : 7s. ; and a balance in hand at the close of the year for general purposes 
amounting to 346 : 2 : 2. The report explains : 

"That this exceeds by nearly 100 the surplus for the year, is owing to the 
fact that the fund raised by Dr. Charteris (to clear off deficits in previous years, 
and adverse balances on certain special accounts) was actually rather larger than 
had been estimated as required (or has hitherto been required) for these purposes, 
although there are payments yet to make on these accounts, for which the sum 
raised may still be required." 

The sum raised has since, as was anticipated, been exhausted, and in view of the 
large annual burden resting on the Committee in the maintenance of the Hospital, 
it is impossible, even in view of the present satisfactory position of the finance, 
not to entertain some anxiety, which it is hoped large private donations and 
liberal public collections will remove. 



COMMITTEE IN AID OP THE HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS 
OF SCOTLAND. 

Convener. The Rev. J. C. RUSSELL, D.D., Dunfillan, Dnnoon. 

Vice-Conveners. Rev. NORMAN MACLEOD, D. D. ; and Rev. ROBERT BLAIR, D.D. 

Secretary and Treasurer. ALAN L. MENZIES, Esq., W.S., 123 George Street, Edinburgh. 

THE Committee was originally appointed in 1874, under the name of "The 
Committee on Deputations to the Highlands," with instructions to visit the 
Northern and Western parishes of Scotland, and to make inquiries regarding 
alleged difficulties with which ministers of Highland parishes had to contend. 
Among these were (1) the evil of double and united parishes ; (2) the want of 
Gaelic-speaking ministers ; (3) parishes having aged and infirm ministers (this 
having now been undertaken by another Committee) ; (4) the state of repair of 
churches and manses in Parliamentary parishes. These are forty-two in number, 
and no adequate provision exists for their maintenance and repair ; many erf them 
had fallen into a most dilapidated state, but have for the most part been put into 
good order by the assistance of the Committee s grants, augmented by local and 
other contributions. The Committee, by a system of regular inspection, hope, 
when the outstanding cases have been overtaken, to be able at a small annual out 
lay to keep all in an efficient state of repair ; and (5) the necessity of providing 
services for distant and poor localities ; assistance is given in the erection of 
mission churches in remote districts. These and such matters form the subject 
of the Committee s work, further information regarding which will be found in 
Year Book, 1889. The Committee s ordinary expenditure averages over 2000 a 
year ; but much more could be spent with great advantage to the Church of 
Scotland in the Highlands. 

Legacies to the Committee should be left in the following terms : To the 
Highland Committee of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, per 
its Secretary or Treasurer, (in words), free of legacy duty. 



EOTAL BOUNTY COMMITTEE.

Convener Rev. ROBERT BLAIR, D.D. 

THIS Committee is nominated by the General Assembly under what is termed 
a " Commission to some Ministers and Ruling Elders for the Reformation of 
the Highlands and Islands and for managing Her Majesty s Royal Bounty. " The 
fund known as the "Royal Bounty" is a donation of 2000 which is annually 
given by Her Majesty for extending the benefits of the Reformation in the High-

lands and Islands. Ministers, missionaries, and catecliists are maintained in re 
mote localities where, in consequence of the vast extent of many of the parishes 
and other causes, no regular provision could otherwise have been made for the 
diffusion of the blessings of the Gospel. From the first the Committee have 
been charged to appoint their agents " to such places as they shall find after due 
information to be the most proper according to Her Majesty s design expressed 
in her warrant," and in so doing they are required "to have particular regard to 
such parishes in South Uist, Small Isles, Glencoe, Harris, the counties of Moidart, 
Glengarry, Lochaber, and the other parishes of the Synods of Glenelg and Argyll 
which the Committee shall find by reason of their vast extent, by prevalence of 
Popery and ignorance, and other unhappy circumstance, to be in the greatest dis 
tress." There are at present on the Scheme of the Eoyal Bounty 35 stations, some 
of which are supplied by ordained ministers, others by licentiates and catecliists. 
In recent years it has also been the practice to employ students of divinity as 
missionaries during the summer months, thus supplying vacancies which it would 
be difficult to fill up in any other way and at the same time conferring a benefit 
on the young men who are appointed. Assistance is also given to young men 
having a knowledge of the Gaelic language who are studying for the ministry. 
Though in recent years a large number of the stations which were at one time 
under the management of the Royal Bounty Committee have been erected into 
parishes quoad sacra, there is still an ample field for the expenditure of Her 
Majesty s donation, which is now, as it has been for so many years, an invaluable 
blessing to the Highlands and Islands. 



EDUCATION. 
The Education Scheme. 1 

(Contributed by Professor LAURIE.) 

Convener. Rev. JOHN PATRICK, D.D. 

Secretary. Professor S. S. LAURIE, 16 Chambers Street, Edinburgh. 

rnHE General Assembly s Education Scheme may be said to date from 1824, 
-L although it was not properly in operation till 1825. This movement to 
supply schools for destitute Highland districts was largely due to the advocacy of 
Dr. Macleod of St. Columba s, Glasgow, but its formal initiation was placed in 
the hands of Principal Baird of the University of Edinburgh, assisted by the late 
Dr. Gordon, H.M.I.S. Professor Laurie was appointed Secretary in February 1855. 

In 1872 the number of the Assembly Schools was upwards of 300, in addition 
to the Normal Schools. The Act of 1872 introduced the present national system, 
and the Committee soon after took steps gradually to promote the transference of 
their schools, it having been found impossible under the new circumstances to 
obtain collections in support of them. While engaged in this work of withdrawal 
they founded a Female Training College in Aberdeen, and instituted a system of 
religioiis inspection of schools. The latter, after a few years trial, was given up 
for want of funds, and the Committee s work became then restricted to the manage 
ment of their Superannuation and Reserve Fund, to reporting to the Assembly 
annually on educational matters, and to the control and further development of 
the Training Colleges (Normal Schools), and the training of teachers generally. 

The Training Colleges are situated in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen. 
They are double Colleges, that is to say, they train both masters and mistresses. 
The number of single Training Colleges is six. 

i For a history of the work of the Committee before 1872, see the Year-Hook for 1887. 



72 THE EDUCATION SCHEME. 

The students at present in training in these Colleges are distributed thus : 

Male Students. Female Students. 

Edinburgh 41 119 

Glasgow 41 119 

Aberdeen 15 65 

The course of training extends over two years, and none are admitted as students 
except those who have passed an entrance examination, conducted by the Scotch 
Education Department. From among those who pass this examination the Com 
mittee select as many as they can accommodate and train, after giving due con 
sideration to the results of their mm examination in Religious Knowledge, Singing, 
Latin, and, in the case of female candidates, Needleivork. In selecting from 
among the candidates, the Committee follow the Government order of merit, but 
always reserve to themselves a discretionary power of departing from it. Can 
didates who pass in the first class in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, or at other 
centres, are all admitted before any second class candidates receive the offer of a 
place. 

The programme of instruction in the Colleges is prescribed by the Education 
Department, but the Education Committee of the Church are not limited by this 
programme. They give instruction in religion on the basis of the Bible and 
Shorter Catechism, and they promote as much as possible in their own Institutions, 
and in connection with the Universities, the study of Latin, Mathematics, and 
elementary Science. 

Students do not enter until they are eighteen years of age at least. 

Among the subjects of instruction the principles and practice of teaching have 
a prominent place assigned to them. The lectures of the Rectors on methods of 
instruction and school organisation are practically illustrated in the Elementary 
or Practising Schools, which form an integral part of the Training Colleges. In 
these schools about 2000 children, from the age of four to sixteen, are on the roll. 

Bursaries of the average value of 25 per annum are given to all the male 
students ; a considerable number of bursaries, of the average value of about 
12, is given to female students. 

These bursaries, as well as all other expenditure connected with the Training 
Colleges (including the Practising Schools), amounting in all to upwards of 
24,000 a year, are paid by the Education Committee; and for the means of 
paying them they are dependent, first, and mainly, on grants from Government, 
which are calculated on the attendance at the Colleges, but are always limited 
by the number of teachers who have been successfully trained and have held 
schools for a period of probation averaging about two years ; secondly, on the fees 
of students in the Colleges, and children attending the Elementary or Practising 
Schools ; thirdly, on the usual Parliamentary grants in terms of the code ; and 
fourthly, on other incidental sources of income.

Hon. Secretary. J. HOPE FINLAY, Esq., W.S., 19 Glencairn Crescent, Edinburgh. 

rPHIS Committee was appointed to adopt measures for "the better endowment 
-I- of those Theological Chairs whose emoluments are admittedly inadequate. " 
From a statement issued it appears that an annual sum of 1734 would be required 
in order to raise the amount of the endowment of each of the Chairs to 550 a year. 
Owing to recent university legislation and to the subject of the Theological Chairs 
being under the consideration of the University Commissioners, the Committee 
has not actively pursued its labours for the past two or three years. 



SABBATH SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 73 



Ladies Gaelic School and Highland Bursary Association.

Patroness. HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN. 

Hon. Secretary. Rev. K. A. MACKENZIE, LL.D., Kingussie. 
Hon. Treasurer. JOHN BRODIE, Esq., C.A., 13 Queen Street, Edinburgh. 

THIS Association (instituted in 1845) aims at giving a higher education to Gaelic- 
speaking lads who are connected with the Church of Scotland, and encourag 
ing such of them as are suitable to study for the ministry. Its object is not to 
perpetuate the Gaelic language, but to raise the standard of secondary education 
in the north and north-west of Scotland, and to help to supply preachers to 
those of the Highlanders and they are still a large number who either know 
little English or to whom Gaelic is much more familiar and the preaching of the 
Gospel in that language much more effective. 

Since the passing of the Education Act of 1872 the funds have been devoted 
to secondary education. There are offered annually for competition among 
Gaelic-speaking boys bursaries of 15 each, tenable for two years at a grammar 
school. 

The Association is maintained by private subscriptions, obtained by a large 
staff of collectors in all parts of the country. In 1894 the sum of 244 : 12 : 9 
was so raised. 



SABBATH SCHOOLS. 

Sabbath School Committee. 

Convener. Rev. JOHN SMITH, B.D., The Manse, Partick. 

Vice-Convener. A. M. WILLIAMS, M.A., Esq., Glasgow Normal Training College. 

THE Report to the General Assembly of 1895 thankfully recognised the 
widely extended interest taken in the great work carried on among the 
young, and expressed the gratification of the Committee that in the statistical 
information a substantial increase was manifested under every branch of the inquiry, 
which is made annually by the Committee. 

The result of the statistical information alluded to may be shortly stated thus : 
schools, 2169 (increase 28) ; scholars, 224,703 (increase 3837) ; teachers, 
21,183 (increase 431) ; ministers or other senior Bible classes, 1236 (increase 28) ; 
scholars at these classes, 47,392 (increase, 2463); collections, 5726:15:5 
(increase 169 : 9 : 5) ; contributions towards Committee s expenses, 127 : 16s. 
(increase 3 : 6s.) 

The demand for the teachers books and schemes of lessons has been a grati 
fying evidence of the favour with which they have been received, and of their 
usefulness throughout the Church. Up to the close of 1894, 12,120 volumes 
and 3741 parts have been sold. The Church of Scotland s scheme of lessons is 
now in use in 1075 of the Church s schools, with 11,386 teachers and 119,855 
scholars. 

The teachers magazine, which was commenced in January 1893, has had an 
average monthly circulation of 3718 ; a result somewhat disappointing. With 
21,183 teachers it does not seem unreasonable to expect that the circulation 
should be at least three times what it is. 

"Children s Day," which has been observed along with other churches for 
some years past on the first Sabbath of November, was again fixed by the General 
Assembly for the same Sabbath in 1895. 

A remit was made to the Committee by the General Assembly of 1894 to 
prepare a simple catechism to be submitted to next General Assembly, and to 
consider whether the object might not be attained by a selection of questions 
and answers from the Shorter Catechism suitable for the purpose in view. 



74 SABBATH SCHOOL TEACHERS UNIONS. 

After full consideration the Committee reported to the General Assembly of 
1895 that a simple catechism of the kind aimed at could not be obtained by 
making a selection from the Shorter Catechism, and finding it impossible to attain 
a general consensus of opinion regarding the scope and contents of any simple 
catechism, it was considered expedient that nothing further, meantime at all 
events, should be done. The Assembly approved of the Committee delaying 
the preparation of a simple catechism. Regarding a proposal to institute an 
examination of scholars, the Assembly approved of the Committee proceeding 
with deliberation and caution. 

The Committee have to regret the resignation of Mr. J. Turnbull Smith as 
Convener. His distinguished services will be long remembered. The General 
Assembly thanked Mr. Smith for his labours in connection with the religious 
education of the young, and especially in the preparation of the Scheme of Lessons 
and Teachers Books now happily so largely used in the Sabbath Schools of the 
Church. 

Sabbath School Teachers Unions.

niHE objects of the Association as set forth in its constitution are "to quicken 
J- and stimulate the interest of the Church in the spiritual care of the young ; 
to form a bond of union and of mutual assistance between the Sabbath schools in 
connection with the Church of Scotland in the Presbytery of Edinburgh ; to aid 
and encourage Sabbath school teachers by affording them the benefit of collective 
experience and advice ; and generally, in so far as possible, to give increased life 
and unity to the whole Sabbath school work of the Church in Edinburgh." Con 
ferences of teachers are held from time to time, at each of which an address is 
delivered upon some part of the work and conduct of the Sabbath school or other 
kindred topic, and this is followed by a discussion upon the subject so introduced. 
Visitation of the schools is also carried on, and the reports are submitted to the 
General Committee of the Association. All Sabbath school superintendents and 
teachers within the bounds of the Presbytery are members of the Association, 
and each school appoints one member to the General Committee.

THIS Association traces its origin to a meeting in Glasgow in 1844 of Sabbath 
School Teachers in connection with the Church of Scotland. It was not 
regularly constituted till May 1846. Its object is "to encourage and extend 
by visitation and otherwise Sabbath school work within the Presbytery of 
Glasgow." 

The Association, in conjunction with the Presbytery, now carries on an inspec 
tion of schools by professional teachers and others in sympathy with Sabbath 
school work, who regularly report on the methods and quality of the instruction 
given. It holds Quarterly Meetings of Directors, Representatives, and Visitors. 

The Association comprises 97 societies with 146 schools, in which there are 
2865 teachers and 37,305 scholars.

WALTER TAIT ; COLONEL WAFCHOPE, C.M.G. 

Clerk and Treasurer. JOHN W. DOUGLAS, Writer, 133 West George Street, Glasgow. 
Organising Secretary and Agent. THOMAS NICOL, 22 Queen Street, Edinburgh. 

THIS Committee was able to report to last General Assembly very hopefully 
regarding its two main lines of effort : (1) Parochial Associations ; and (2) 
Legislative Proposals. 

1. Mr. Thomas Nicol, the newly-appointed Organising Secretary and Agent, 
had visited 32 Presbyteries and 160 Parishes ; had addressed 210 separate 
meetings, and started 45 new societies. There had also been held 5 public 
conferences in the main centres of population, and 2 with students at University 
seats, specially designed "for frank interchange of opinions, and for practical 
suggestions." So far as statistics had been received, there were at the time of 
the Annual Report 303 societies in all, and a total membership of 38,940. 

The General Assembly of 1895, in congratulating the Church on the appoint 
ment of an organising secretary, recommended ministers and others interested, 
"to avail themselves of his services, and of the assistance offered by the 
Committee, in order to carry out the repeated instruction of the General 
Assembly." That instruction is to form an association for Temperance work 
wherever practicable, "in strict connection with the Church," the promoters 
being left free, and with the full sanction of the Church, to form it either " on the 
Dual Basis, or on the Total Abstinence basis alone," as they may judge most 
expedient for the needs and claims of their special localities. It is in accordance 
with the recommendation of the General Assembly, that definite effort should be 
made to have some special Temperance Organisation in every parish, and the 
Committee will gladly lend its utmost assistance for the promotion of any such 
work on lines approved by the Church of Scotland. 

2. With reference to Temperance Legislation, the General Assembly, with the 
Committee s Memorandum before them, and the returns from presbyteries therein, 
issued a unanimous finding, which cannot but mark an epoch in the history of 
this perplexing problem. Without committing themselves to any " Scheme," with 
its necessarily contentious details, they endorsed by renewed approval the essential 
principle of " Local Control of the Liquor Traffic " ; and took the further step of 
declaring in favour of submitting several " Alternative Options " to the choice of 
the Electorate, embracing at least those specified in the Memorandum, or 
others "substantially equivalent," viz. Local Prohibition, Local Limitation, and 
Local Management. 

It is the Church s conviction and hope, that in this way a very perplexing 
question would once for all be taken out of the sphere of mere party politics, r.nd 
relegated to the decision of those directly interested, viz. the Electorate in each 
self-governing community. Further, it is manifest that, by the varied experi- 



76 TEMPERANCE COMMITTEES. 

ments that would be wrought out in different localities, the whole nation would 
be practically taught which was the wisest way of solving a most difficult, yet 
most pressing, social problem. 

The Committee, as instructed, are busily engaged in conference with repre 
sentative men in all parties and of all churches, in the hope of agreeing upon 
some rational, comprehensive, and (so far as may be) final measure of Legislative 
Temperance Reform, that might cover the whole field, and offer a basis of united 
action for all reasonable and practical men, as citizens, in the fulfilment of a 
public duty. 

3. The General Assembly urged all her people to work and pray for the promo 
tion of Temperance in the land, under a sense of responsibility to the Lord of 
all, and in accordance with the claims and the needs of the localities wherein their 
lot is cast." They also commended the Committee "to the friendly co-operation 
and liberal support of the members and office-bearers of the Church, for the 
advancement of the cause of Temperance on lines which have received the 
approval of the Church." 

The Committee are loyally endeavouring to carry out the instructions of the 
Church all along the line. All organisations for Temperance work within the 
Church are now directly associated with their operations. But there are two 
things without which all these efforts must manifestly issue in disappointment 
viz. (1) the active co-operation of ministers and others interested, with Mr. Nicol, 
and with the Committee ; and (2) the systematic support, by donations and sub 
scriptions annually, from members of Committee and those whom they can 
influence, without which the projected operations cannot be carried out. On the 
one subject, the Organising Secretary, and on the other, the Clerk and Treasurer, 
will at all times be pleased to receive and answer communications.

PUBLICATIONS. 77 



The objects of the Union are, to bring abstainers into friendly intercourse with 
each other, to provide opportunities for conferring as to temperance work in the 
interests of the Church, to assist each other in forming and carrying on parochial 
Associations and Bands of Hope, to assist all efforts of the General Assembly s 
Committee on these lines, and, generally speaking, to keep this great question, in 
all its issues, thoroughly alive before the community. 

The organisation is as follows : the city is laid off into five divisions, each of 
which is managed by its own divisional Committee, and these five divisional 
Committees constitute the Glasgow Council of the Abstainers Union. 

The executive earnestly appeal to the ministers, office-bearers, Sabbath school 
teachers, and other members of the Church of Scotland, to co-operate with them 
in combining their forces together in so good a cause.

rjIHE Scottish Bible Society, whose origin dates from 1809, was established for 
-L the purpose of assisting parish ministers in the distribution of copies of the 
sacred Scriptures in their respective parishes. That is its object still, and the 
assistance it thus offers is being more and more widely extended over Scotland. 
Last year the circulation, amounting to upwards of 23,000 volumes, was the 
largest since the foundation of the Society. The good which the Society has done, 
and the help it has given in the circulation of the sacred Scriptures, justify the 
Directors in making an appeal to the clergy and laity of Scotland for pecuniary 
assistance ; and as it is the aim of the Society still more to extend the sphere of 
its operations, it is hoped that this appeal will be received with favour by those 
who have means at their disposal. The funds of the Society have risen from 
contributions, collections, and legacies ; and as the Directors are anxious to con 
tinue and to extend the beneficial operations of the Society, they confidently 
anticipate that this appeal for an increase to their funds will meet with en 
couragement and success. The Secretary will have much pleasure in receiving 
and acknowledging any donations or contributions that may be sent to him. 

The Society has in stock a great variety of editions of the sacred Scriptures ; 
and the Secretary, to whom applications for grants should be made, has a discre 
tionary power to give grants at the lowest reduced rates if he sees cause to do so. 
Those who receive grants at these rates are at liberty to dispose of the books they 
receive in any way they think best in their locality ; but in the event of the price 
they obtain exceeding the price they pay, it is expected that the difference will 
be transmitted as a contribution to the Society, or else will be employed in the 
purchase of prizes or presents to encourage their Sabbath schools and Bible classes. 

The Secretary has further been empowered, if he sees fit, to furnish preaching- 
stations or Mission churches with a Pulpit Bible and Psalm Book at reduced prices.

fTlHE Society was originally formed (more than forty years ago) with the view 
J- of supplying the poor of Glasgow and the West of Scotland generally with 
copies of the Scriptures at low rates. It gives grants of Bibles both in English 
and Gaelic to accredited persons for distribution as they see fit. The work of 
circulating the Gaelic Scriptures in the West Highlands is a special feature of the 
Society, which it is desirous to develop still further. The terms of the Society s 
grants afford special facilities which it is right that the Church should be more 
fully aware of. 

They are as follows : 

1. The books may be distributed gratuitously in cases where this is considered 
advisable. 

2. The Society may be remunerated for its grants either (a) by a private sub 
scription or church collection ; or (b] by sales of the books at reduced rates ; or 
(c) by sales at the rates charged by the Society. These are in all cases below the 
ordinary selling price. 

3. No remittances are looked for until the books are disposed of, and no per 
sonal liability is incurred. 

Applications may be addressed to the Treasurer or to either of the Secretaries. 



2. Devotional. 

COMMITTEE ON AIDS TO DEVOTION. 

(Contributed by the Convener.) 
Convener. Rev. JOHN PATON, St. Michael s, Dumfries. 

THIS Committee was originally appointed in 1849 to draw up forms of social 
worship according to the usage of the National Church of Scotland for soldiers, 
sailors, colonists, and other persons who are deprived of the ordinary services of a 
Christian ministry. 

In 1885 the Committee was instructed to "revise the Books of Aids to Devo 
tion, with such additions and omissions as may seem advisable to them, and to 
report the result to next Assembly." 

When the Report of the Committee was submitted in 1889, the following was 
the deliverance of the General Assembly : " In respect that, while the Prayers 
for Social and Family -Worship, already issued by the authority of the General 
Assembly for the use of soldiers, sailors, emigrants, and other persons who are 
deprived of the ordinary services of the Christian ministry, form the basis of the 
revised edition now submitted by the Committee, there are in it many additions 
and omissions, and much re-arrangement ; the Assembly, meanwhile reserving 
any deliverance on its merits, remits these Books of Devotion to the Committee 
for further revision and amendment ; and allows the Committee, if it see cause, to 
publish the Books of Devotion so revised, in order that the opinion of the Church 
may be maturely formed regarding their suitableness to the several classes for 
whose use they are intended, it being understood that, in the meantime, the forms 
so published have only the sanction of the Committee. " 

Acting on the permission given in this deliverance, the Committee has published 
" Prayers for Social and Family Worship," for the use of soldiers, sailors, colonists, 
sojourners in India, and other persons at home and abroad who are deprived

of the ordinary services of a Christian ministry. This book contains ten 
services for public worship A Service for the Sick in Hospital A Service for 
the Sick-room Services for the Burial of the Dead Children s Services A 
Fortnight s Prayers for Family Worship Sacramental Family Prayers and 
many Prayers and Thanksgivings for special occasions. 

The General Assembly of 1892 authorised the publication of a volume of 
Prayers for Family Worship for one month, with Prayers for Special Occasions. 

A large edition of this has been published. 

The same Assembly also authorised the issue of a new book of Devotion, to 
contain one hundred short prayers with a text of Scripture prefixed ; and 
morning and evening prayers suitable for pasting inside a Bible. These have 
now been published.

Sub-Convener. Rev. JAMES RANKIN, D.D., Muthill. 

Secretary. CHARLES BAXTER, Esq., W.S., 11 South Charlotte Street, Edinburgh. 

THE Scottish Hymnal was sanctioned by the Assembly in May 1870 and pub 
lished in September of that year. It contained only 200 hymns. But it 
was approved by all competent authorities ; and it was very generally adopted 
in public worship. 

A desire arose for a larger hymnal : and the same individuals who had pre 
pared the Scottish Hymnal prepared a large Appendix, which was first issued 
separately and is now incorporated, making a volume of 442 hymns. From all 
competent quarters this collection (approved by the Assembly in 1884) has met 
warm approval. The sale of the Hymnal, down to May 1892, exceeded two 
millions and a half of copies. In the year ending December 1892 it was 152,501. 
Other work has been done by the Committee. The Prose Psalter has been 
published, pointed for chanting. A collection of Anthems has been issued. 
Music of high class has been provided for the Hymnal. It may be said that 
this volume, which is partly the cause and partly the result of a revolution of 
feeling in Scotland on the subject of hymnology, has revolutionised the national 
service of praise. Those who prepared the Hymnal have had no reward beyond 
its success for much labour. They have never published their names on a single 
copy of their book.

Convener. Professor MITCHELL. 

THIS Committee was appoiuted in 1867 to procure for the Church a transcript 
of these minutes from the original preserved in Dr. William s Library, 
London. The transcript was made by Sir E. Maunde Thompson, K.C.B., Keeper 
of the British Museum, and the volume containing the minutes connected with 
the formation of the Confession of Faith and Catechisms was published by the 
Messrs. Blackwood in 1874. A desire has been expressed for the publication of 
the other volumes, and perhaps it may yet be possible to venture on this. 
Lately Drs. Mitchell and Christie have edited for the Scottish History Society 
the volume of the Records of the Commission of the General Assembly, which con 
tains many letters from the Scotch representatives to the Westminster Assembly 
never before published, and another volume, it is expected, will be issued in 
May 1896. 



THE BUSINESS OP THE GENEKAL ASSEMBLY. 

Committee on Commissions and Classifying Returns to Overtures. 

Convener. W. J. MENZIES, Esq., W.S., 123 George Street, Edinburgh. 
rPHIS Committee examines the commissions of presbyteries, burghs, and univer- 
* sities returning their representatives to the General Assembly, and classifies 
the returns made on overtures sent clown to presbyteries by the previous 
General Assembly in terms of the Barrier Act. 

Committee to receive Synodical Returns on Fresbyterial Superintendence. 

Convener. W. J. MEXZIES, Esq., W.S., 123 George Street, Edinburgh. 

THE manner in which Presbyteries are to superintend the work of the various 
parishes within their bounds is regulated by Act xi., General Assembly 1890. 
This Act provides that a Schedule is to be tilled up by each parish minister 
answering certain queries regarding the diets of worship, administration of 
ordinances, parochial visitation, kirk-sessions, communion roll, and religious 
instruction of the young. The answers to the queries are to be returned by each 
minister to his Presbytery, and the Presbytery " at a meeting appointed for that 
purpose, and being alone, are to take the Schedule of each parish into their 
deliberate and careful consideration, and record in the Presbytery Books their 
views thereanent ; together with such explanations or instructions as the Presby 
tery deem proper." The Books of Presbyteries require, by the law of the Church, 
to be visited by the Synod of the bounds once a year, and it is by the Act made 
a duty of Synods immediately after the visitation of the Presbytery Records to 
prepare a Return showing distinctly and specifically whether eacli Presbytery has 
faithfully carried out the provisions of the Act, and to send it to the General 
Assembly s Committee. 

The General Assembly appoints a Standing Committee to receive the Returns 
and to submit to the General Assembly a Report on the same. 

In this way it will be seen that the General Assembly is able to take cognisance 
annually of any weak spot there may be in the Church. If the Returns required 
by the Act are properly made, and Presbyteries do their duty, any gross 
irregularity must come before the Courts of the Church, and, through the 
machinery of this Act, will find its way to the General Assembly. 



COMMITTEE ON CHURCH INTERESTS. 81 

Committee on Standing Orders. 

Convener. The Right Honourable LORD BALFOTJR of Burleigh. 

THIS Committee was appointed in 1883 to revise the Standing Orders of the 
General Assembly. Numerous alterations have been made from time to 
time on report of the Committee for example, important changes in the method 
of taking the vote in all cases, whether ordinary or judicial. 

The Assembly of 1895, on the report of the Committee on a remit to them by 
the previous General Assembly, approved of certain additions to the Standing 
Orders, imposing a limit of time on speeches in the General Assembly. 

Committee on Library and Arrangements of the House. 

(Contributed by the late Principal TULLOCH.) 
Convener. Rev. Professor STORY, D.D., Glasgow. 

THIS is a small Committee composed of only three members in addition to the 
office-bearers of the General Assembly. Its object is to superintend the 
arrangements for the orderly meeting of the General Assembly and to suggest and 
carry out any improvements therein. It has also the special charge of the library 
of the Church located in the General Assembly Hall, of which the Principal 
Clerk is officially librarian. Dr. Christie of Gilmerton is sub-librarian, and 
attends one day in each week (Wednesday, from 10 to 1 o clock) at the Assembly 
Hall to give out books, or otherwise assist any ministers or members of the 
Church desirous of consulting the MS. records deposited there. The library is 
by no means complete or in such a state as it ought to be, but it contains some 
valuable books and MSS. It recently received a considerable accession from a 
collection of volumes whioh had been in the custody of the Dumfries Presbytery. 
If there were any regular funds at the disposal of the Church for the benefit of 
the library it could be greatly improved and made more accessible to students 
and others interested in the Church. 

The Committee is occasionally enlarged for the purpose of more effectively 
carrying out particular objects. 

Committee on Benefice Register and Records of the Church. 
Convener. Rev. THOMAS BURNS, Chalmers Crescent, Edinburgh. 

THE General Assembly of 1890 appointed the Committee on Benefice Register 
for the purpose of " keeping an accurate and authentic record of the livings 
attached to each parish or chapel, and of all ecclesiastical property ; as also for the 
better custody of bonds, securities, writs, and title-deeds." The General Assembly 
of 1892 conjoined the Committee on Benefice Register with the Committee on 
"Records of the Church," which the General Assembly in 1888 appointed "to 
deal with the preservation and custody of the whole Records of the Church." 
The work now embraced within the scope of this Committee has been productive 
of the most gratifying results. Throughout the parishes of the Church there has 
been awakened a spirit of inqiiiry which has led to the recovery of valuable 
Church and Kirk-Session Records, and to the restoration of glebe lands, etc., to 
benefices. Fresh proofs of this Committee s valuable work are presented to each 
General Assembly.

THIS Committee was appointed in 1882, following a motion to the effect that 
proposals were not unlikely to " be introduced into Parliament and state 
ments made seriously affecting the position and welfare of the Church." It was 
further resolved that this Committee should use " all prudent means to keep the 
people of Scotland duly informed as to the national position and principles of the 
Church." The Committee during its thirteen years 01 existence has been active in 
discharging the duty assigned to it. An exhaustive account of its labours during 
the Disestablishment Campaign of 1885-86 will be found in the Year-Book for 
1887. In 1888 a summary ol the efforts made by the (.hurch for the purpose of 
reconciling other Presbyterian Churches in Scotland who are estranged from her 
communion was given. In 1890 will be found a record of the efforts of the 
Committee in connection with the Ecclesiastical Assessments Bill. During the 
year 1890, in view of the declarations and votes of Mr. Gladstone and the great 
body of his supporters in favour of Dr. Cameron s Resolution on 2nd May 
" That in the opinion of this House the Church of Scotland should be Disestablished 
and Disendowed, 1 every effort has been made to arouse the members and friends 
of the Church to a due sense of the danger which threatens it, and to perfect the 
organisation of the Church defence against the assault which has already begun. 
In 1891 will be found the details of the Committee s instructions and a short 
record of their operations. These operations were continued in 1891, and in 1892 
will be found a narrative of the work of 1891 with the ormation of the Laymen s 
League, and the results of a canvass of five of the north-eastern counties on the 
Church Question. 

At the Assembly of 1892 a memorandum by the Laymen s League, embodying 
suggested "practical proposals towards re-union" in terms of the General As 
sembly s Deliverance of 1891, was considered, and the resolutions will be- found 
in the report for that year. 

At the Assembly of 1893 the Committee explained the position they took up 
at the general election of 1892, as embodied in the following resolution which 
they published at the time. 

" Inasmuch as the question of Home Rule for Ireland will certainly be made 
the predominating issue at this general election, the result, whatever it may be, 
cannot be held to be in any sense conclusive as to the opinion of the people of 
Scotland regarding their National Church. 

"But having regard to the attitude taken up by the advocates of Disestablish 
ment, and by those parliamentary candidates who have espoused their cause, and 
to their apparently deliberate determination to deprive the people of Scotland of 
the opportunity of expressing their opinion upon this great national question 
apart from other political issues on which they are divided, and considering the 
declared intention of many leading politicians to regard the votes of the Scottish 
members in next Parliament as expressing the views of the Scottish people in 
reference to the fate of their National Church, it is clearly the imperative duty 
of all members and friends of the Church to take every means in their power to 
prevent the return of parliamentary candidates pledged to Disestablishment, 
irrespective of that real reference and real consideration in order to a real 
decision so distinctly promised by Mr. Gladstone." 

They also reported the announcement made in the Queen s Speech, at the opening 
of the first session of the new Parliament, that Bills would be introduced "to 
prevent the growth of new vested interests in the Ecclesiastical Establishments of 
Scotland and Wales," and that, shortly after, the Secretary for Scotland gave notice 
that on 13th February he would bring in a "Bill to prevent, for a limited time, 



COMMITTEE ON CHURCH INTERESTS. 83 

the acquisition of any vested interest by any Minister of the Established Church 
of Scotland in public funds at present appropriated to, or enjoyed by, the ministers 
of churches and parishes in Scotland." The Committee narrated the steps which 
they had taken thereanent, giving the Deliverance of the Commission of Assembly, 
whose attention they had called to the subject. Further, they intimated that 
three other Bills affecting the Church of Scotland had been brought into the 
House of Commons during that first session. 

1. Bill "to declare the Constitution of the Church of Scotland." 

This Bill did not greatly differ from the suggestions for a Bill embodied in 
the communication from the Laymen s League, which was before the Assembly 
of 1892. 

2. Bill "to provide for the reference of the question of the Disestablishment and 

Disendovvment of the Church of Scotland to the Parliamentary Electors of 
Scotland." 

It proposed to enact that between 1st November and 15th December of 1893 
a poll should be taken upon the questions of Disestablishment and Disendowment 
of the Church. This Bill had been introduced by those friendly to the principle 
of a National Church, and who wished to have the question decided by obtaining 
the real feelings and wishes of the people of Scotland apart from the complication 
of party politics. 

3. A Bill "to put an end to the Establishment of the Church of Scotland, and to 

deal with the Public Endowments thereof on the occurrence of Vacancies." 

This Bill was introduced by a private member, on 9th May, after one day s 
notice. 

In view of the attitude of the Government and their supporters towards the 
Church, the Committee asked from the Assembly powers to issue very definite 
instructions regarding organisation, and to take any action which may be neces 
sary in cases where ministers or kirk-sessions have placed obstacles in the way of 
promoting defence organisation, as, after consultation with their presbytery, shall 
seem best fitted for enabling the parishioners to take their own measures for 
defending the Church. The deliverance of the Assembly on the Committee s 
Report will be found in their Report for 1893. 

At the Assembly of 1894 the Committee reported as to their work during the 
preceding year in carrying out the remits of the previous Assembly, and notably 
in formulating a more thorough scheme of organisation for Church Defence. 

For this purpose the whole country was divided into twenty-three groups, with 
a number of deputies proportioned to its extent for each group, and their opera 
tions during the year were reported upon. The whole scheme was approved of 
by the Assembly, and an extensive and more definite application of the previous 
plan of operations sanctioned as follows : 

1. That deputy work should be continued. 

2. That it should be imperative on deputies to place themselves in direct contact 

with every parish, and to promote by personal effort the work of Church 
Defence in every district. 

3. That no deputy should have more than one district, and that, where necessary, 

districts may be subdivided, so as to secure more efficient personal work. 

4. That the General Assembly should enjoin the presbyteries to cause ministers 

and kirk-sessions to make arrangements, when necessary, to enable deputies 
to carry on their work in the parishes. 

5. That it be specially pressed on the Committees that more complete arrange 

ments should be made for interesting and informing, by personal visitation 
or otherwise, the members of the Church, and that the existing recommenda- 



84 COMMITTEE ON CHURCH INTERESTS. 

tions as to arrangements, which ought to be made for this purpose, be 
revised and amplified. 

6. That in the event of a Constituency Committee failing to take action when it 
appears necessary, deputies should be empowered to communicate direct 
with Parochial Committees or members thereof for the purpose of getting 
the desired work efficiently carried out ; and in the event of a like failure 
with a Parochial Committee, that the deputies should without delay report 
the matter to the Church Interests Committee. 

It was further reported that upwards of 900,000 leaflets on Church Defence 
had been circulated during the year ; and that 868 Lantern Lectures had been 
delivered, this work having been shared by 80 ministers and laymen. 

On the recommendation of the Committee the Assembly adopted a " Resolution 
and Protest in respect of the declaration by the Government of their intention 
to deal with the Church of Scotland in violation of one of the most essential 
conditions of the Treaty of Union, without first consulting the Scottish nation." 

This and the Assembly s Deliverance will be found appended to the Committee s 
Report. 

At the Assembly of 1895 the Committee reported regarding their work on the 
lines laid down the previous year, and notably that part of their duty relating 
to the completing and perfecting of the work of Church Defence organisation 
throughout the country, and the following is their analysis of the reports by the 
various Deputies : 

From the summary of the reports by the Deputies, and the tables which have 
been prepared founded upon these reports, it appears that in twenty-three out 
of the thirty- one groups the visitation of the parishes has been carried out with 
more or less completeness ; that in three groups the Deputies were only able to 
meet and confer with the Constituency Committees, which, however, seem to be 
well organised ; that in five others the Deputies have conferred with Presbyteries 
and Constituency Committees, besides visiting a number of the parishes. 

Further, it is reported that in twenty-four groups the defence organisation- is all 
but complete i.e. there is either a committee or association in every parish more 
or less effective, with generally one or two exceptions in each group, while in the 
remaining seven groups the work of organisation is progressing, and is expected 
ere long to be complete. After carefully considering the various reports from 
time to time, and looking to the extent, population, and other circumstances of 
the respective groups, the following deduction has been made : 

() Where the organisation may be considered good, although in almost every 
case there are departments of the work not yet completed twelve groups. 

(b) Where the organisation may be considered fair, or where defence work has 

hitherto been heartily carried out ten groups. 

(c) Where there are still either a number of parishes without an organisation, 

or having only such in a rudimentary form, or where little or no action has 
been taken in instructing the people on the subject of the Church, save by 
illustrated lectures six groups. 

(d) Where much yet remains to be done in certain parts of the groups, and 

where the work is especially heavy three groups. 

It was further reported that, including the Pastoral Letter by the Assembly of 
1894, upwards of 722,000 leaflets on Church Defence had been circulated, and 
that 228 Lantern Lectures had been given during the year, this work being shared 
by 55 ministers and laymen. Since the Lantern Lectures had been started a 
total of 1096 had been given in 82 Presbyteries of the Church. 

It was also reported that upwards of 16,000 membership cards of the Scottish 
Women s Church Defence Union had been issued. 

The following are the more important parts of the Assembly s Deliverance on 
the Committee s Report 



COMMITTEES FOR COLLECTING STATISTICS. 85 

The General Assembly rejoice that such a measure of success has attended the 
past operations of the Committee, as shown by the improved Defence Organisation 
throughout the country ; they approve and adopt the recommendations regarding 
the work of the Deputies, and remit these recommendations to the Committee, 
with full powers to see them carried out, and specially enjoin Presbyteries and 
Kirk-Sessions to afford all requisite assistance for the instruction of the people 
concerning the principles and position of the National Church and the Organisa 
tion for Defence of it. 

The General Assembly regret to learn that more progress has not been made by 
the "Scottish Women s Church Defence Union," and they renew their recom 
mendation that a branch be formed in every parish. 

The General Assembly receive with profound satisfaction the assurance by the 
Committee that, notwithstanding the efforts made by her assailants to loosen the 
allegiance and attachment to the Church of those of her members who are political 
supporters of the present Government, large numbers of these have given ample 
evidence of their continued loyalty, and of their determination to resist the bribes 
put before them ; and the Assembly appeal to all the members and adherents of 
the Church, to whatever political party they belong, to neglect no opportunity or 
effort whereby the vindication of her most righteous cause may be finally achieved. 

The General Assembly call upon all who desire the maintenance of the estab 
lishment of the National Church, to unite in persevering prayer that it may please 
Almighty God to guide and bless their efforts thus to defend the religious inherit 
ance of the Scottish nation, and to make such defence effectual for the preservation 
of the testimony of Scotland to the supreme headship of Christ over all nations, 
and for the continuance of the ancient covenant of this nation with Him as its 
Lord and King. 

All the publications issued by the Committee, and all information regarding the 
position of the Church and organisation for Church Defence, may be had from the 
Secretary, 22 Queen Street, Edinburgh.

and of grants paid to the Church out of the Ferguson Bequest and by the trustees 
of " The Baird Trust," amounting to upwards of 100,000. It is right, however, 
to observe that the figures given for each year represent the voluntary contributions

and legacies already taken credit for, and grants from bodies outside the Church, 
are not part of the Christian liberality of the year, and are omitted accordingly.

UP till 1894 this Committee attended to the expenses of (1) the General 
Assembly, and (2) those Committees of the Assembly which have no funds 
of their own. By an Act of the General Assembly of 1894 it was amalgamated 
with the Patronage Compensation Committee, and it has now therefore to pro 
vide for claims of this nature as well as for the other purposes for which it was 
originally instituted. The Assembly also ordered that the requisite funds for all 
objects shall be provided, not by collections as formerly, but by a contribution 
from each Presbytery allocated on it annually by the Assembly of that year. 
All applications for grants from the General Funds of the Church must be made 
to this Committee, and the General Assembly of 1890 passed a resolution in the 
following terms : "That in future they (the General Assembly) will not entertain 
any application for a grant from the funds of the Finance Committee unless the 
application shall have been previously submitted to the Committee and reported 
on by them." The Committee have for several years had to defray heavy expenses 
in connection with the Commission on the Religious Condition of the People, 
and the claims upon it are yearly increasing.

THE Society in Scotland for Propagating Christian Knowledge was constituted 
by a charter from Queen Anne in 1709. The object of the Society was to 
promote Christian knowledge and the increase of piety and virtue within Scotland, 
especially in the Highlands, Islands, and remote corners thereof, where error, 
idolatry, superstition, and ignorance mostly abounded by reason of the largeness 
of the parishes and scarcity of schools, and for propagating the same in popish 
and infidel parts of the world, with full power to receive subscriptions, legacies, 
etc., and therewith to erect schools to teach to read the Holy Scriptures and other 
good and pious books, as also to teach writing, arithmetic, and such-like degrees 
of knowledge in the Highlands and remote corners of Scotland and in other parts 
therein mentioned, and to use means for instructing the people in the Protestant 
Reformed Christian religion. Subsequently, in 1738, the Society obtained a second 
charter from King George, which empowered the Society to instruct children in 
husbandry, housewifery, in trades and manufactures, or in such manual occupations 
as the Society shall think proper. The Society also supported, under separate morti 
fications, missions to the North American Indians and in other foreign parts. 

In 1890 the greater portion of the funds and estates of the Society, more 
especially those which had been applied to educational purposes, were transferred 
under a scheme of the Educational Endowment Commissioners to the Governors 
of the Trust for Education in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, for the 
maintenance chiefly of secondary education in the Highlands and Islands. The 
remaining general funds of the Society are applied in supporting missionaries and 
catechists in the Highlands and Islands. 



II. THE WORK BEYOND SCOTLAND. 
THE SCOTTISH CHUECH IN ENGLAND. 

(Contributed by the Rev. J. M. CROMBIE, M.A., Hon. F.R.Hist.Soc.) 

Joint Conveners of General Assembly s Committee of Correspondence with Scottish Synod in 
England. Rev. T. B. W. NIVEN, Pollokshields ; Rev. W. DOBIE, Ladykirk. 

FROM an early date there were several Scottish congregations scattered through 
out England which were professedly in connection with the Church of Scot 
land, and composed almost entirely of Scotsmen or their descendants who had 
settled on this side the Border. In the year 1840, in virtue of a resolution passed 
by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1839, the various presby 
teries in England, under the jurisdiction of which most of the aforesaid congrega 
tions had by this time been placed, were constituted into a synod, which was 
designated " The Presbyterian Synod in England in connection with the Church 
of Scotland." This synod, however, had but a brief existence, for at their meet 
ing in 1844, the year following the Scottish Disruption, it was resolved by the 
members present that the words "in connection with the Church of Scotland" 
be omitted. The few scattered churches which still adhered to the Church of 
Scotland, with the exception of those of the Scottish Presbytery of London, for 
some years afterwards virtually existed in a kind of independency. In accord 
ance, however, with a recommendation of the General Assembly in 1850, these were 
united into presbyteries, and a synod was constituted in 1851, under the name 
of " The Scottish Synod in England in connection with the Church of Scotland." 



THE COLONIAL COMMITTEE. 91 

By the said recommendation, which seems to be little known in Scotland, the 
synod was declared " to be in full communion with the Church of Scotland, and 
entitled to all the intercourse, correspondence, and encouragement heretofore 
atforded to presbyteries or other church courts within the realm of England. 
Provided always that the members of the t oresaid presbyteries and synod be all 
licentiates of the Church, or ministers who have been admitted into full com 
munion with this Church by the General Assembly of this Church." It was 
further recommended that there should be an annual communication from the 
synod to the General Assembly in writing, respectiug the state of the several 
presbyteries, as also a distinct statement as to any changes that take place in the 
ministry of the churches. Licentiates of the Church of Scotland who might 
occasionally reside in England were also required to report themselves within two 
months to the moderator of the presbytery with which their place of residence 
was most nearly connected, so as to bring a presbyterial certificate along with 
them when they returned to Scotland. At a later period a Committee of the 
General Assembly was appointed to correspond with the synod, as affording 
greater facility for giving advice when counsel may be asked. 

Amidst numerous difficulties, many of which are inseparable from its position 
in England, as located within the bounds of the sister establishment, and with its 
short history marked by various vicissitudes of success and failure, the synod 
still continues to preach faithfully the Gospel of the grace of God and to supply 
regularly the ordinances of religion to the members of the Church of Scotland 
who are settled in England. From the symptoms of awakened interest in it 
recently manifested in Scotland, and from the success which has recently attended 
some of its churches, it is hoped that it is now about to enter on a new and pro 
mising career of usefulness in its connection with the mother church. In this 
capacity its sphere of usefulness is necessarily so far limited, inasmuch as its 
function is not to make proselytes from the English nonconformist churches, and 
much less from the Church of England, but merely to supply the ordinances of 
religion, according to the doctrine and form of worship of the Church of Scotland, 
to those of our countrymen in England who are within reach of its services, and 
wish to retain a connection with the Church of their fathers. 

At present the synod is certainly smaller in number of churches than at any 
previous period, owing to the gradual decay and final extinction of several small 
and poor congregations, utterly unable to support a minister ; but those which 
remain are (with one or two exceptions) more prosperous than formerly, and have 
every appearance of permanency. From the statistical schedules given in last 
May there were at that date 3536 communicants, 88 elders, 78 managers, over 
1800 Sunday school children with 159 teachers, in connection with the fourteen 
congregations of the synod, its total income being 6000. In most of the churches 
there is a Young Men s Guild, in several also a Woman s Guild, while the more 
flourishing have various agencies in connection with Home Mission work. 



THE COLONIAL COMMITTEE. 

Convener. Rev. Dr. M ADAM MUIR, Edinburgh. 

Secretary and Treasurer. Mr. GEORGE B. WILSON, 22 Queen Street, Edinburgh. 

THE Colonial Mission has been in existence for fifty-nine years. It has been 
the means of planting Presbyterianism in the Colonies of the British Empire ; 
and, owing to the exertions of the founders of the Scheme in its early days, there 
are now large, influential, prosperous, and vigorous churches in Canada, Australia, 
and New Zealand. An account of the operations of the Committee will be found 
in a pamphlet by the Rev. Alex. Williamson (published by Messrs. Black wood & 
Sons, Edinburgh), entitled What has the Church of Scotland done far our Colonies ? 
The formation of the large Presbyterian churches alluded to, and the general

prosperity of the Colonies, have necessitated a modification of the work of the Com 
mittee. Some Colonial Churches do not require pecuniary help, and accordingly 
no grants are now voted to them. But there are still many parts of our Colonies 
in which help from home is absolutely imperative. The North- West Territory 
of Canada, where so many Scottish emigrants are settling year by year, requires 
all the assistance that can be given. The Canadian Presbyterian Church is doing 
its utmost, but unless the Church in this country assist, its efforts will be sorely 
hindered. This year a plan has been adopted whereby congregations in this 
country undertake to support for a few years a missionary in the North-West 
Territory. The Committee have continued grants to the colleges at Manitoba, 
and the Queen s University, Kingston, for furthering Home Mission work by the 
employment of students during the summer months. The Committee have also 
continued their grant to the Church in NEW ZEALAND (north island), for Home 
Mission work among Scottish settlers in thinly-peopled districts remote from 
towns. They have also given a grant to Western Australia for work among the 
gold miners. 

They have also given grants to NEWCASTLE, and RICHMOND, Natal ; and to the 
presbytery of NATAL for an itinerating missionary ; to JAMAICA and GRENADA, 
to FIJI, to CYPRUS, to CEYLON, and to MAURITIUS. In INDIA (MHOW, MEERUT, 
RAWAL PINDI, BELGAUM, and QUETTA), chaplains are in fact supported by grants. 
The duty of these chaplains is to attend to the religious welfare of civilians and 
soldiers who do not come under the supervision of the Committees. The Com 
mittee, in conjunction with the Free and United Presbyterian Churches, contri 
bute to the maintenance of a Presbyterian minister at Penang. 

The Committee are bound by decision of the Assembly to pay a sum of not 
more than 600 a year to the ARMY AND NAVY CHAPLAINS COMMITTEE, and to 
aid the permanent chaplaincies under the CONTINENTAL CHAPLAINCIES COMMITTEE 
at Paris and Dresden. 

The income for 1894 was 5901 : 17 : 9. 

Sub-Committee on Continental Chaplaincies. 

Convener. Rev. Dr. MITCHELL, South Leith. 

THIS is a branch of the Colonial Committee s work having been added to it in 
1878. At the Assembly of 1885 a resolution was passed to separate it from 
the Colonial Committee after the sums necessary for the payment of the Paris and 
Dresden churches have been raised. The new church in Paris situated near the 
Champs Elysees was purchased in 1884 for 6000, opened in October 1885, and 
is now entirely free from debt. The managers of the church in Dresden pur 
chased the church and manse in 1884, and efforts have been made to raise the 
necessary funds to help them to pay off the debt. These have been so successful 
that the debt is now reduced to 1000. The only summer stations on the Con 
tinent supplied by the Committee at present are Geneva and Homburg ; at each 
of which last season services were maintained for over three months at the 
former in the Cathedral, and in the latter in the Schloss Kirche (see p. 167). 

Army and Navy Chaplains Committee. 

(Contributed by the Convener.) 
Convener. Rev. THEODORE MARSHALL, M.A. 

THIS Committee is charged with the duty of promoting the spiritual interests 
of Presbyterians in the Army and Navy. Almost from the time of its for 
mation till his death in 1888 it was presided over with great zeal and ability by the 
late Rev. Dr. Phin. It was originally a separate Committee, but for several years it 
has been a distinct department of the Colonial Committee, from which it is entitled 
to receive annually a sum not exceeding 600 in support of its operations. Almost 



COMMITTEE ON INDIAN CHURCHES. 93 

the whole of that money is expended in supplementing the Government allowances 
to ministers in England officiating among Presbyterian soldiers, sailors, and marines, 
so as to ensure these ministers a decent maintenance. There is no Committee 
of the Church with an income of only 600 a year which accomplishes a larger 
amount of good work. The report to last General Assembly announced that there 
were four commissioned chaplains of the Church of Scotland and one on super 
annuation allowance, and two commissioned chaplains of the Irish Presbyterian 
Church. In addition to these there are seven acting and officiating chaplains 
whose salaries are in part paid by the Church, and whom the Convener had visited 
on behalf of the Committee. 

In addition to these seven officiating chaplains in England who devote their 
whole time to ministering to soldiers and sailors, there are several ministers at 
home, and a number holding Indian and Colonial appointments, who are em 
ployed to minister to the troops. With these the Committee correspond as 
occasion requires. This correspondence is now more considerable than it was 
formerly, as the General Assembly of 1892 instructed the Committee to endeavour 
to obtain from all the ministers of the Church engaged in officiating to the troops, 
reports of the extent and nature of their ministrations, and recommended all such 
ministers to send their reports to the Committee, that the General Assembly may 
be regularly informed of the whole work of the Church in the Army. The Com 
mittee is also in frequent communication with the War Office and Admiralty 
regarding the supply of ordinances to our soldiers and sailors, and on other matters 
connected with these services in which it is the duty of the Church of Scotland to 
take an interest. The Moderator of the General Assembly is ex officio joint-convener 
of the Committee (see p. 166). 



COMMITTEE ON INDIAN CHUECHES. 

Convener. Rev. JAMES WILLIAMSON, M.A., 21 Ravelston Park, Edinburgh. 

UNTIL 1859 there were only six chaplains of the Church of Scotland in 
India two for each of the Presidencies of Bengal, Madras, and Bombay. 
In 1859 the Secretary of State for India sanctioned an increase of seven assistant 
chaplains three for Bengal, two for Madras, and two for Bombay. In 1868 the 
Government of India gave the important concession that assistant chaplains, after 
ten years service, should obtain promotion to full chaplaincies, while retaining 
the privilege of being promoted to the higher grade if a vacancy should occur 
before they had completed ten years service. 

Conditions of Service, Salaries, and Pensions. Candidates for appointments 
as chaplains on probation must have been licensed for three years, and be 
under thirty-four years of age. Chaplains will be on probation only, for three 
years ; * and if confirmed in their appointment at the end of that period, they 
will be admitted as assistant chaplains. They will be required, from the date 
of their appointment on probation, to provide pensions for their families under 
the Indian Service Family Pension Regulations. These pensions are in addition 
to any pensions or compassionate allowances granted under the Royal Pay 
Warrant for the time-being in force. 

The salaries are : chaplains, 9600 rupees per annum ; assistant chaplains, 
6000 rupees per annum ; chaplains on probation, 4800 rupees per annum ; the 
senior chaplain receives additional allowances of 2400 rupees per annum for 
Calcutta and 1800 rupees for Madras and Bombay. The chaplains in the Presi 
dency towns receive special allowances for house-rent. An assistant chaplain 
becomes a chaplain after ten years service, excluding the period of probation. 

i A clergyman resident in India at the time of his nomination as a probationer will be 
allowed to count in his probationary period any service rendered by him under the 
Additional Clergy Society or other service approved by the Government in India. 



94 CORRESPONDENCE WITH FOREIGN CHURCHES. 

The retiring pay of chaplains is regulated by the following scale : 
After twenty-three years service, with an actual 
residence in India of twenty years, including the 

period of probation 365 per annum. 

On medical certificate, after eighteen years actual 
residence in India, including the period of pro 
bation 292 00,, 

Do. after thirteen years do. .... 173 76,, ,, 
Do. after ten years do. .... 127 15 

By whom Appointments to Chaplaincies are made. The appointments to the 
Indian chaplaincies are made by the Right Honourable the Secretary of State for 
India, on the recommendation of the Committee on Indian Churches. At p. 165 
will be found a list of the present chaplaincies. 



COMMITTEE ON COEEESPONDENCE WITH EEFOEMED 
CHUECHES. 

(Contributed by the Convener.) 
Convener. Rev. DUNCAN CAMPBELL, B.D., St. Matthew s, Edinburgh. 

rpHE main objects of this Committee are to foster friendly relations with the 
-L Reformed Churches of the Continent, and to give aid to those which especially 
require it. To some of these churches we are more closely allied by forms of 
worship, by government, and by tradition, than to churches nearer home. The 
history of their trials and struggles bears no little resemblance to the trials and 
struggles through which the Scottish Church has had to pass. The work of the 
Committee brings the Church of Scotland into contact with all the Communions 
embraced in the Alliance of Reformed Churches, popularly known as the Pan- 
Presbyterian Council, and especially with the Reformed Churches of France, 
Italy, Bohemia, Switzerland, and Belgium. 

Last year grants amounting in all to 342 : 10s. were voted in aid of the Central 
Society and Home Mission of the National Protestant Church of France, the 
Evangelical Society of France, the Waldensian Church, the Missionary Christian 
Church of Belgium, the Evangelical Society of Geneva, the Evangelical Church of 
Italy, and the Amos Comenius Society of Prague. 

The Committee is also the official medium of communication with the Presby 
terian Church in Ireland, between which and the Church of Scotland friendly 
relations have been so happily restored.

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE MISSION. 

Our Missions in India, Africa, and China have 6705 baptized natives, and 
9337 scholars, of whom 700 are senior students. There were 1077 baptisms last 
year. We have 55 European missionaries, including 20 wives of missionaries. 
320 Christian natives are in the service of the Mission, of whom 6 are ministers, 
2 are licentiates, and the rest are evangelists, teachers, doctors, and assistants in 
humbler capacities. Collections and contributions at home last year were 22,224. 
Legacies were 2362. Income abroad (contributions, fees, grants, etc.) was 6417. 
Interest amounted to 168. The total income of the Foreign Mission Committee 
was thus 31,171 : but if the rupee were estimated at par 2s. as in former 
years, the amount would be increased by about 5500. 

If we add the statistics of the Women s Association, the figures for the united 
missions are Europeans, 81 ; Christian native agents, 440 ; scholars, 12,419 
(besides zenana pupils). And the total income of the united missions for 1894 
(rupee at par) amounted to 46,872. 

The debt, which amounted to 8617, has been cleared away.

rPHE Jewish Mission Scheme has now been in existence for nearly sixty 
-L years. The Committee on the Conversion of the Jews made their first 
report to the General Assembly of 1838. That Assembly reappointed the Com 
mittee to collect information respecting the Jews, their numbers, condition, and 
character, and generally with full power to take all prudent measures both at 
home and abroad for the spread of Christian truth among them. In April 1839 
a deputation, of which the saintly M Cheyne was a member, and of which Dr. 
Andrew Bonar of Glasgow, recently taken from us, was the last survivor, was sent 
to the East to prosecute inquiries as to the Jewish communities. In 1840 the 
Jewish Mission became one of the regular Schemes of the Church. It was not 
till after the Crimean War that the present stations, so admirably adapted for 
Jewish Mission work, were agreed upon. At each of the stations there are con 
siderable Jewish populations, and an open door of access to the Jewish people. 
The work of the last forty years has disarmed prejudice and softened bigotry, 
and notwithstanding its difficulties, was never more hopeful than at the present 
time. 

STATIONS OF THE JEWISH MISSION COMMITTEE. 

The work of the Jewish Mission is carried on at five stations within the Turkish 
empire, Constantinople, Smyrna, Salonica, Beyrout, and Alexandria.

JEWISH MISSION STATIONS. 



Constantinople. 

Ordained Missionary. Rev. DAVID BROWN SPENCE. 
Headmistress of Girls School. Miss GRAHAM, LL.A. 
Native Evangelist. Mr. JACOB DABOM. 

At Constantinople (Hasskioy) the ordained missionary has under his charge a 
small Hebrew Christian community, Jewish converts and their families, of whom 
a fair proportion are communicants. Every Sunday morning there is a Spanish 
service conducted by Mr. Spence, with a good attendance. Every Saturday (the 
Jewish Sabbath) there is a Meeting for Inquirers, of whom there are always 
several. In February Mr. Spence baptized a Jewish adult, and on 28th July 
a bright, intelligent lad who had been for some time an inquirer. There is a 
Printing Press in connection with the Mission, and good work has been done by 
the publication of useful literature iu the Judfeo-Spanish language. This part of 
the work is very hopeful, and though it has been hampered by lack of funds, 
Mr. Spence has been encouraged by the Committee to see whether it cannot be 
prosecuted more continuously and perhaps extended. Mr. Spence has lately 
completed the work of revising the Judseo-Spanish New Testament for the British 
and Foreign Bible Society. 

By the resignation of Miss Eoss, who is now married in Smyrna, there has been 
a change in the superintendence of the Girls School, and Miss Graham, LL.A., 
from Dunfermline, has been appointed in Miss Ross s room. She is accompanied 
by a younger sister as a companion who will also give some assistance in school. 
In 1894 there were 214 Jewish girls enrolled in the Mission School. 

Smyrna. 

Ordained Missionary. Eev. JAMES MURRAY, B.D. 

Medical Missionary. R. L. BOLTON, L.R.C.P. and S.E. 

Headmaster of Boys School. Mr. A. R. FORREST. 

Superintendent of Girls School. Miss MARJORY M. MENZIES, with Miss 

EMILY SMITH, and other assistants. 

Missionary Nurses. Miss MARGARET RITCHIE KEY and Miss MUNRO. 
Native Agents. Mr. RAPHAEL SEOURA and Mr. SCHWARTZ. 

At Smyrna the ordained missionary has under his charge a small Hebrew 
Christian community, consisting of Jewish converts and their families. Every 
Saturday there is a Meeting for Inquirers, with a varying attendance. Visitation 
is carried ou by the native agent in the Jewish Bazaars, and frequent visits are 
made by the Jews to the missionaries. In the spring of 1895 Mr. Murray bap 
tized a family of six persons, and later a young man from Salonica. 

In the Mission schools there were enrolled 324 pupils, 302 Jews and 22 of other 
races. The Sabbath school is largely made up of Jewish children. In the girls 
school, Miss Bain has, after three years efficient service, returned home and been 
replaced by Miss Emily Smith, a resident in Smyrna. In the boys school Mr. 
A. Ramage Forrest reorganised, on the lines of school work at home, the boys 
school, and has, in the face of difficulties, achieved a good measure of success. 

The movement among Russian Jews, which gave promise in the early months of 
1894 of resulting in a strong Hebrew Christian community, has disappointed 
expectation. The so-called Karaite Jew, who was the leader of the movement, 
was proved unworthy of confidence and disappeared from Smyrna. The Russian 
Jews, and those of the staff who at first reposed confidence in him, were much 
disappointed, but it is hoped that the interest excited, in so far as it was religious 
and not of a merely socialistic character, may not be wholly lost. 

The Medical Mission Dispensary, open three days a week, is attended in the course 
of every year by about 5000 patients, the majority of whom are Jews and Jewesses, 
a considerable number Greeks, and a sprinkling of Turks and Armenians. Dr. 
R. L. Bolton has done excellent service since his appointment in the autumn of 



JEWISH MISSION STATIONS. 99 

1893, and the influence of the Medical Mission was never greater or more whole 
some. Miss M. Eitchie Key, the fully trained nurse from Scotland, who went 
out in the end of 1894, is now to be reinforced by another worker, Miss Munro 
of Aberdeen, who has received training as a nurse in the Deaconess Hospital, 
Edinburgh, and is supported by the Fellow Workers Union. She has been 
appointed to Smyrna, and will sail (D.V.) in February. 

Salonica. 

Ordained Missionary. Rev. PETER CROSBIE. 

Superintendents of Girls School. Misses HELEN and MARY WALKER. 

Salonica is the most thoroughly Jewish city of the Levant, and the Salonica 
Jews have a name for orthodoxy and wealth. Mr. Crosbie superintends the opera 
tions of the Mission, visiting among the Jews and having a considerable influence 
in the community. He conducts Sabbath services for the British residents, among 
whom there were last year thirty-five communicants. A young man whom Mr. 
Crosbie had prepared for baptism was sent over by him to Smyrna, there to be 
baptized by Mr. Murray. 

The Girls school was attended in 1894 by 157 Jewesses, and 12 of other 
nationalities. Mr. Crosbie has been for many years the valued superintendent of 
the Colportage of the National Bible Society of Scotland at Salonica. 

Beyrout. 

Ordained Missionary. Rev. GEORGE M. MACKIE, M.A. 
Headmaster of Soys School. Mr. WILLIAM STAIGER and assistants. 
Mistress of Girls School. Mrs. STAIQER, assisted by Miss STAIGER. 

The ordained missionary directs and superintends the work of the Station, and 
avails himself of opportunities of dealing with Jews, both those who are resident 
and those who pass through to and from Palestine. Besides his work in the school 
Mr. Staiger makes tours of visitation among the Jews. Two baptisms were re 
ported from this station to last General Assembly. 

The Schools were attended in 1894 by 612 pupils, of whom 336 were Jewish 
children. The Girls school has been reopened to meet an earnest demand on 
the part of Jewish mothers, and was attended last year by 166 Jewesses. The 
Jewish Mothers Meeting conducted by Mrs. Mackie and Mrs. Staiger is also 
well attended. Mrs. Staiger visits in the houses of the Jewish women, having 
been relieved of part of her school work by the appointment of her daughter. 

Mr. Mackie, who had a severe attack of influenza early in the year, is presently 
at home on furlough, and is doing good service by his addresses. 

Alexandria. 

Ordaintd Missionary. Rev. MALCOLM T. S. TAYLOR, B.D. 

Headmaster of Boys School. Mr. ALEXANDER BUCHANAN, M.A., with assistants. 

Superintendent of Girls School. Miss KIRKPATRICK with Miss M KENZIE, and assistants. 

Lady Evangelist. Mrs. ROBINSON. 

Native Evangelist. Mr. ABRAHAM KESTIN. 

The ordained missionary superintends the whole of the work of the station, and 
directs the operations of the native evangelist, who teaches Hebrew in the boys 
school, and visits among the Jews. 

There are two boys schools and two girls schools ; the total number of scholars in 
1894 being 780, of whom 437 were Jewish. The school fees amounted to 714. 

There is a Sabbath school with about 150 children in attendance, one-half of 
them Jewish. In 1891 the work of the Harbour Mission, with the Consular 
Chaplaincy and the Charge of St. Andrew s Church, were transferred from the 
Jewish Mission Committee to the Colonial Committee, the Rev. William Cowan 
having been appointed by them to the charge. Mr. Taylor is now set apart for 



ioo WOMEN S ASSOCIATION FOE FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

purely Jewish Mission work. In the spring of 1892 Mrs. Robinson was appointed 
Lady Evangelist for two years, to visit the Jewish women in their homes and 
follow up the work of the Girls School by Christian helpfulness among those who 
have left school for homes of their own. The generous friend who furnished the 
salary of the Lady Evangelist for two years has renewed it for another period of 
two years. There have been no changes in the staff at the station in 1895, but 
in the early part of the year the Committee were called upon to sympathise with 
Mr. Buchanan on the loss of his wife, whose sister, Miss M Kenzie, is on the 
school staff. The death of the Rev. Dr. Yule, who was the founder of the work 
at this station, and who for nearly thirty years laboured with much success especi 
ally in the Harbour Mission, falls to be noted as having happened within the 
year. 

FINANCE. 

For the year ending 31st December 1894 the ordinary income available for the 
general objects of the Scheme was 5463, and the necessary expenditure at the 
stations, etc., was 5338. The amount received from legacies was 1378, being 
a decrease of 302 upon the legacies of 1893. An annual sum of at least 6000 
is required to meet the expenditure on the present basis of the mission.

Offices of the Association. 22 Queen Street, Edinburgh. 

THIS Association was formed in 1837 under the name of T/ie Scottish Ladies 
Association for the Advancement of Female Education in India, "to give a 
Christian and general education to the women of India." The original aim was 
widened and the title altered to the Church of Scotland Ladies Association for 
Foreign Missions, in 1883, to embrace all the Mission fields occupied by the 
Church, with the view of establishing a female missionary agency at each station. 
In 1892 the long familiar name of the Ladies Association was changed to the 
Women s Association, as being yet more fully expressive of its position and claims 
as the recognised organisation for Woman s Work in the Church of Scotland on 
behalf of Foreign Missions. 

The management of the Association s affairs is directed at home by a Com 
mittee of ladies (including representatives of Presbyterial Auxiliaries), with 
sub-committees for each foreign station, and on Finance and Publications, a 
gentlemen s sub -committee on Finance and a sub - committee representing the 
Foreign Mission, whose convener presides at meetings of the Committee. The 
operations of the Association abroad are promoted by mission councils and con 
sulting boards. 

The Association has seven agencies in active operation, viz. (1) Orphanages and 
Schools to train girls as native teachers, (2) Girls Day Schools, (3) Sabbath 
Schools, (4) Zenana Teaching, (5) Village Preaching, (6) Female Medical Mission 
work, and (7) Industrial Work. There are now on the staff 28 European 
missionaries, including one lady from Australia. With the assistance of over 
a hundred Eurasian and native teachers and Bible -women, they carry on 
educational, evangelistic, and medical work in 46 schools with nearly 3000 
pupils, in about 500 zenanas, and by a hospital, and city and village dispensaries 
for women and children. 



WOMEN S ASSOCIATION FOR FOREIGN MISSIONS. 101 

Corresponding to the growth of the Association s work abroad has been the 
recent development of its home organisation. There are now 51 Presbyterial 
Auxiliaries, and the number of contributing parishes to the funds of the Associa 
tion exceeds 600. The Association s total income for 1894 amounted to 
10,201 : 8 : 5, including 1601 : 11 : 6 received in India, and 302 : 4 : 3 from 
Australia and New Zealand, but without any grant from the Foreign Missions 
Committee : a marked increase since 1875, when that Committee guaranteed an 
annual grant of 25 per cent on the amount raised by the Association over and 
above its normal income of 1800. 

The Association s organ is the News of Female Missions, a quarterly maga 
zine issued at 8d. per annum by Messrs. R. & R. Clark. A quarterly leaflet, 
Fellow Workers (price one halfpenny), is also published in connection with the 
Association. Papers, with organising hints and information regarding the various 
departments of the Association s work, may be had from the secretaries. An annual 
general meeting is held on the day after the rising of the General Assembly. 
One outcome of the Annual Ladies Conference of 1885 was the institution of a 
Women s Prayer Union for our missionaries and their work, which numbers over 
800 members. 

The Association s Stations and Agents are :

Thirty-two native Christian Teachers, two non-Christian Pundits. 

The Association s work at Calcutta is large and prosperous. The number of 
girls in the Orphanage reported for 1894 was 45. These girls are trained in a 
home school and normal class in the Institution for future work as teachers, and 
our missionaries testify that they are the best teachers in the schools. The 
Hindu schools (8 in number, with 753 scholars), which are taught by 32 native 
Christian teachers and two Hindu Pundits, under the superintendence of the lady 
missionaries, receive grants in aid from Government according to results of their 
examination in the prescribed standards. The Bible lessons given daily in schools 
and zenanas are prepared at a weekly meeting which the missionaries hold with 
the native Christian teachers. The zenana work is largely carried on. Some 
houses are regularly visited for Bible teaching and hymn-singing only ; while in 
others secular teaching is also given. The average number of pupils on the roll 
is 45. Four of the boarding-school girls were admitted to communion in August 
last year.

teaching given in 97 houses with 111 regular pupils reaches numbers of other 
women who listen to the lessons and come under the influence of the zenana 
missionary s visits. A new school was built at Sholinghur and opened in 1894. 
It is supported by a lady in Adelaide and has been named Hardwicke Mission 
School. One of the missionaries visits it at intervals, and more work will be 
done when the staff, which has been reduced by illness and resignations, is again 
complete. 



102 WOMEN S ASSOCIATION FOR FOREIGN MISSIONS. 

III. Poona. 
European Missionaries. Miss BERNARD, Miss EMILY BERNARD, Miss L. C. BERNARD, 

M.D., Miss ALEXANDER, Miss MITCHKLL, Miss KESTING. 
Assistant Missionaries. Mrs. and Miss GILDER, VENOOTAI, Mrs. BOWDEN, Mrs. 

CARSTENSEN. 

Twenty Native Christian Teachers, four Biblewomen, two Catechists, three Nurses, two 
Probationers, two Dispensers, three Pundits. 

The work at this station is developed tinder three departments, viz. the Zenana 
Mission, the Orphanage and Schools, and the Medical Mission. 

The Zenana Mission, under Miss Bernard, in addition to teaching in zenanas 
and schools, undertakes preaching in some of the surrounding villages with the 
help of two catechists. About a hundred families are visited, the conditions of 
teaching being that the Bible is received and that the visits have the consent of 
the head of the house. The Orphanage, superintended by Miss Emily Bernard, 
with an average number of 30 girls, is proving a good training school for native 
teachers. There are eight girls schools (four in connection with the Zenana 
Mission), two mixed schools, and a night school for men and boys, the total number 
of the scholars being about 866. Seven baptisms were reported last year. The 
Medical Mission, founded by Dr. Bernard, who went to India as the first lady 
medical missionary of the Church of Scotland in 1885, has rapidly developed, 
and includes zenana visiting, out-patient dispensaries, and a hospital. In 1894 
the zenana or paying patients attending the Hospital numbered 108, the patients 
treated in the hospital numbered 347, and the dispensary or out-patients 3602. 
In August 1889 there was first opened a small cottage hospital, and in September 
1892 the present hospital containing twenty beds and two cots. Half of its 
estimated cost was defrayed by a grant from the Indian Government, and the 
balance from a fund for Mission buildings specially raised at home. 

IV. Darjeeling. 

European Missionary. Miss C. AUGUSTA REID. 
Assistant Missionaries. Miss MACKINTOSH, Miss HALL. 

In 1886 zenana work was undertaken at Darjeeling at the request of the ordained 
missionary there. It was carried on for the first two hot seasons by Miss Reid 
from Calcutta, with the assistance of Miss Mackintosh as resident missionary. At 
the end of the year 1887 the station was established as a separate mission from 
Calcutta, of which it had up to that time been a branch, and Miss Reid was 
appointed to take charge of the work, which now includes a girls day school, 
and Sabbath School, as well as zenana teaching. In the latter branch there 
are 96 pupils in 69 houses. A Boarding- School has also been opened, and there 
are now 22 girls boarded. There were two baptisms during the year and ten 
young communicants. 

V. Gujrat Panjab. 

European Missionaries. Miss MACKICHAN, Miss STEPHENSON, Miss M. MACKICHAN. 
Miss RUSSELL, M.B. 

Miss Paterson, who was appointed the Association s first missionary to Gujrat 
in 1888, had to return home on account of her health within two years. Miss 
Mackichan went out in 1889 and Miss Stephenson in 1890, followed in 1892 by 
Miss Mary Mackichan, who is the representative of St. Andrew s Church, Montreal, 
Canada. There are 159 girls in the schools (4 in number), and about 30 attend 
the Sunday School. Ninety -seven houses with 201 pupils are open to the 
Missionaries. During last year a beginning has been made in Medical Missions, 
partly owing to the assistance of congregations in Canada. Miss Hester D. 
Russell, M.B., was sent from Poona in January, and has treated a large number 
of patients both at the Dispensary and in their houses. 

VI. Sialkot. 

European Missionaries. Miss PLUMB and Miss BLACK, with eighteen native assistants. 
There are 7 day schools with 258 children on the rolls, and 3 Sunday Schools 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF JEWISH FEMALES. 103 

with 103 children. Miss Plumb s furlough has just expired, and she has left for 
India. She has 60 houses on her list for zenana visiting all she can undertake 
with her present staff. She also itinerates in the villages. Miss Ina Cadell, M.D., 
has been obliged, by impaired health, to return home. During the short period of 
her work in India, 7000 patients were treated, and she performed 12 major and 
64 minor operations. Till a fully qualified successor is found, this important and 
urgent branch of work is in abeyance. The place of Miss Scorgie is not yet 
supplied. Meantime Miss Black, with a matron, superintends the Boarding House 
for Christian girls, in which there are 26 pupils in training for mission work in 
the villages. 

VII. Chamba. 

Here are two girls schools, Hindu, and Mohammedan and Christian, with 
101 pupils, under the charge of the ordained missionary and the Rev. Mr. and 
Mrs. Sohan Lai. It is hoped that the Association will ere long be represented 
by lady missionaries. 

BRITISH CENTRAL AFRICA. 
VIII. Blantyre. 

European Missionary. Miss BELL. 

The Association was first represented in the East African Mission at Blantyre 
by Miss Walker, and is now represented by Miss Bell. Miss Bell went out at her 
own charges as an honorary missionary of the Association in 1891, and has 
returned to Blantyre after a short year s rest. 

IX. Domasi. 

European Missionaries. Miss CHRISTIE, Miss EDIE. 

The work begun at Domasi by Miss Christie in 1889 is carried on by her and 
by Miss Edie, who followed in 1891, and is now home on furlough. Besides 
teaching in school they train the native girls in domestic and industrial work. 
Last year a laundry was started. The villages near Domasi are also visited 
periodically ; addresses are given and the girls are taught sewing, etc. Several 
girls are now in the Catechumens class under instruction for Baptism. 

CHINA. 

In 1891 a Girls School was erected at Ichaug, and last year a second school 
was opened in another part of the city. Both schools are taught by native 
teachers under the superintendence of Mr. and Mrs. Deans. In 1894, 53 pupils 
were reported on the roll.

T 



HE object of this Association is twofold. First It seeks by means of mission- 
schools to bring Jewish girls under Christian training and instruction, as 



104 CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF JEWISH FEMALES. 

well as to teach them ordinary branches of education, and sewing and knitting. 
It is cause of deep regret that the funds of this Association will not permit the Com 
mittee to maintain schools for Jewish girls at all the stations, but the Assembly s 
Committee, feeling the great importance of educating Jewish girls as well as boys, 
and recognising the fact that this can only be done by female teachers, act in 
conjunction with the Association, so that with their assistance there is now a 
girls school with a staff of well-qualified teachers at each station, namely, Smyrna, 
Salonica, Alexandria, Constantinople, and Beyrout. At Alexandria there are two 
schools. At one of them education may be had free by girls whose parents 
cannot afford to pay fees. The upper school in Alexandria is the only one of the 
mission schools in which all the pupils pay for their education. At Constantinople 
a small fee is charged when it can be afforded. 

Second The Association are anxious to extend their work so as not only to 
have schools with well- qualified teachers at each station, but to have associated 
with them others whose time will be occupied in visiting the Jewesses at their 
own homes, and the Committee hope they will receive such aid from the Woman s 
Guild and Fellow Workers Union as to enable them to send a lady to every 
station for that purpose. This has been arranged for at Beyrout and Alexandria. 

The Accounts for the year ending 31st December 1894 showed an income of 
1731 : 12 : 1, and an expenditure of 728 : 14 : 11, leaving a balance to be carried 
forward to next account of 1002 : 17 : 2. 

A large additional sum is required in order to relieve the Assembly s Committee 
of the burden of female agents, which is at present borne by them, and this the 
Committee are most anxious to do, and invite every parish to aid them con 
tributing parishes by increased liberality, non-contributing parishes by taking 
immediate steps to begin collecting. 

The income is obtained chiefly through the efforts of collectors. In some 
parishes where an annual missionary sale is held, a portion of the proceeds is 
given to the Jewish Mission. In parishes where no collecting books have been 
used hitherto, it will be of the greatest possible service if several of the women 
workers would divide the parishes into districts, and constitute themselves a staff 
of monthly or annual collectors. Collecting books are supplied on application to 
the Secretary. 

The Association publishes an Annual Report, which is widely circulated. It is 
also published in the April number of the News of Female Missions. Letters 
from the agents are from time to time published in the same periodical. 

The Association s Agents are: Miss Menzies and Miss Smith at Smyrna ; the 
Misses Walker at Salonica ; Miss Kirkpatrick and Miss Mackenzie at Alexandria ; 
Mrs. and Miss Staiger at Beyrout ; and Miss Graham, LL.A., at Constantinople. 

Miss Key, missionary nurse at Smyrna, is supported from a special fund, 
of which Miss Tawse is treasurer. At least 50 a year is required for the nurse 
fund. A second nurse will shortly go to Smyrna to be supported by the F. W. U. 

Boxes of clothing, etc., are sent, every autumn, to the various stations for dis 
tribution among the children who are regular attenders at school, so as to arrive 
at their destinations about Christmas. 

A total of 1372 girls were enrolled during the year in the various schools, of 
whom 1125 are Jewesses.

EXPLANATIONS OF STATISTICS AND CONTRACTIONS USED IN LISTS. 

THE numbers of Communicants, Elders, Bible Class and Sunday School Scholars, are taken 
from returns made to the General Assembly s Committees on Statistics and Sabbath Schools, 
and refer to the year 1894. 

The statistics of the Christian Liberality (C.L.) are from the statement published by the 
General Assembly s Committee, and include the total amounts reported as contributed for 
Religious, Charitable, and Educational purposes by each Congregation during the year 1894. 
The Contributions to the Missionary Schemes of the Church (Mis.) refer to the year 1894. 

The Stipends (Stp.) are the sums received in 1894 or 1895, with the value of the glebe 
added. They do not include the value of the manse. Where there is a manse, or an 
allowance in lieu of a manse, the letter m is inserted. Where the stipends are sup 
plemented, the letter a is inserted. In those cases in which the ministers have not 
returned the amount of stipend it has been taken from the Parliamentary Return on 
Teinds (267) for 1888, and where an augmentation has since been obtained it has been 
calculated by the Fiars Prices ; such cases appearing in italics. The unexhausted or free 
Teind is taken from the same Parliamentary Return. 

Chapels of Ease and Mission Stations are printed in italics. 

The lists have been revised by Mr. Dewar of the Church Offices.

1.N this SOCIETY are combined the advantages of 
Mutual Assurance with Moderate Premiums. 

The PREMIUMS are so moderate that, at usual ages for 
Assurance. 1200 or 1250 may generally be secured from the first 
for the yearly payment which in most Offices would be charged 
(with Profits) for 1000 only equivalent to an immediate and 
certain Bonus of 20 to 25 per cent. 

The "WHOLE SURPLUS goes to the Policyholders on a 
system at once safe and equitable no Share going to those by 
whose early death there is a loss to the Common Fund.

* A person of 30 may thus secure 1000 at death, by a yearly payment of 20 : 15s., 
which would generally elsewhere assure (with profits) 800 only ; or secure 1000 by 21 
payments of 27 : 13 : 4, being thus free of payment after age 50. 

The SURPLUS at the 7th Septennial Investigation, with 
Division of Profits, amounted to 1,423,018, or deducting amount 
already paid as Intermediate Bonuses to 1,362,186 of which 
970,390 was divided among 13,220 Policies entitled to participate, 
and 391,796 reserved for future accumulation and division. 

More than one-half of the Members who died were entitled to 
Bonuses which, notwithstanding that the premiums do 
not as a rule exceed the non-profit rates of other 
Offices, were on the average equal to an addition of about 5O 
per cant to the Policies which participated. 

The Accumulated Funds exceed 9,000,000,
