WESLEYANS AND DR. BEET. In the course of their proceedings last week the Wesleyan Conference, sitting at Manchester, dis- cussed Dr. Agar Beet's case, and, being one of discipline, the president ruled that no report be given to the public of the discussion, only the findings of the Special Committee. Tile first charge brought against Dr. Beet was that he violated th* promise made at the Hull Conference not to publish anything further. The finding 011 this ,i.,lt was that Dr. Beet had not kept his pledge, as it was understood; but the committee regarded it as arising from a serious error of judgment, ratller than from a want of good faith. To this the Conference agreed. The second charge was that Dr. Beet had published doctrines contrary to Methodist standards. The finding was that the teaching "falls short of and contravenes the doctrines universally held and taught in the Methodist Church." The Conference agreed to this, with the deletion of the word "universally." The conclusion of the committee was: "That'; in regard to the whole case, and ill view of the clue solemnity and admitted mystery of the subject, and the necessity of allowing som" freedom of 1 soiii" opinion on It, and out of regard to f he fidelity of Dr. Beet to tin* general body of Methodist doctrine, we recommend, provided Dr. Beet does not teach in the pulpit the doctrine of his book, and, further, that he does not publish anything further 011 this subject without, the consent of tho Conference, that Conference taken.) further steps in the matter." Dr. Beet voluntarily accepted these conditions, and the Conference agreed to this election to 'Fiieolo, recommendation. The election to the Theological Chair at Richmond College was then taken, with the result that the Rev. Dr. Agar Beet was re- appointed. the ><>tiiig being as follows: The Hpv. Frederick l'latt, 5; Thomas F. Lockyer, 255; Dr. Agar Beet, 3L9.
