The Synod resumed its sittings at three o'clock this afternoon ; about fifty members being present, and the Moderator (Rev. G. Hall) presiding.

THE SCSTENTATION FUND. Rev. W. G. M'Lakes, pursuant to notice, moved—" That the regulation 2 of the sustentation fund scheme, page 20, proceedings of 1883, be altered to read hi follows: —'No congregation contributing less than the equal dividend of the preceding year, and giving a supplement, shall be entitled to the full dividend, but only to a sum equal to the sum contributed, and that the same be passed into an interim Act and seDt down to kirk sessions and presbyteries." Rev. J. Blackie seconded the motion. Mr Johnston, the Rev. Dr Stuart, Mr Begg, the Rev. J. Ryley, and others opposed the motiou, believirjg that the money collected by way of supplement would not be given to the sustentation fund. Mr W. Hutchison supported the motion on the ground that equality of position and equality of reward should go together. It had not been so, but it was the position the Synod should aim at. All duty was one, and those who did their duty, whether in country or town, should receive as far as possible the same recognition. The debate was proceeding at 4.30 p.m.
