Hid it down one scat removed from his ad
versary. Ho. too. looked In prime condition,
and bis admirers said he was going to let
himself out In rojul battle In defence of the

, tho world's supremacy nt fourteon-lnch balk

fitst played for, aud ho frankly admitted thatho
wanted to keen it. Ho noeds it In his business.

There was a sontlmontal intorost to it as woll.
Attertwonty-ono vonrsof battle ncalnst onch
other tho tw o little Knights of the Cue last night
faced each other with all their old-time bitter
personal rivalry offaced. The tomahawk was
hurled the night after Blosson defeated tho
Wlrard In ChlcLerlng Hall last year, and both,
as they quaffed bumpers ot wine to each
other's success, had made a. pledee that all
old grudges would stny buried for good.
lint while the porsonal foeling between the
tars was amicahle last night, tho professional
rivalry was keener perhaps than ovor before.
Inch was nnibltlous for tho glory that the
possession of tho hundaomo trophy conferred,
ana for this reason thoro was assured to tho
rent billiard lovers the treat of an animntcd
encashment w 1th the ouos and ivories.
Lone before the players cot there the silk
lined walls of thu little cafe that held the
llaor cup woro thrown opon. and gave
tho spectators a second opportunity to
study its ornate beauty of design. Opera

pionship at the "corner balk" or champions'
A gontleman wltlt most luxurious mous
tachios walked across tho hall when the spec
tators woro stnmping their feet In impatience
at the long delay in getting tho gtmo going.
, lie sit down on. a dais, betwoen the two
platers, took off htsovershoes. ami stroked his
nioiistachios. Tlion Mnrkor Itudd Scofteld put
the impatient ones at their ease by announc
liigthat Mr. I'iucus Levy of Philadelphia had
been chosen roforee Mr. Levy was the owner
.r the handsome moiislueliios. lie bud also
sharp black eayes. Hharp otos are a prime
requisite In tho referee chair.
Champion hclinefnr got first crack at tho
ivories and smashed n duck egg, and follow od
it Immediately with another, telnsson made '2.
utid while he was doing It tho billiard lovors
had tlmo to note a novelty in his attire. Ho
vv is snugly env eloped in cardigan. It was the
llrst.time In his life that ho had worn such a
jacket in puhllo or private either. He says
flint ho has made up his mind that it's a clover
Men. It keeps the plnyer from getting "cold."
The Wizard wore cardigans for years. He had
mm with silk sleeves last night, cut llko a
1 iiiado dross coat. The Wizard rattled oft 27
little follows. His wife watched thorn cnti
lallr. bho wore a pink gown. A dainty little
link bonnet that didn't obstruct anybody's
v ew crowned lior jot hair. Hoside her wan
little 'Tote" Vols, tho Wizard's nephew and
live mascot Ho long ago had another mascot
that Juak Kheehan gave bin. It was one ot
I'reolnnd's running plates, plated with cold.
Hlosson topped the Wizard's llttlo run with a
luster otH2. One was a m.issO that went on
like a pistol shot. It drove the balls apart
along tho rail, but gathered them again In n
corner, as neat ns could bo Tho Wizard went
hlm just one better in a break of 33. He ought
to have gathered In a lot more, but ho tripped
up by not getting the balls out of balk at the
right time. Litter on a short "draw" knocked
him over, ami tho Student picked out six. nml
got around thu first string of Duttons. He had
made 1U'2 caroms all told. Tho Wizard hail
corralled 72. He knocked out 28 and got just
an eon hundred on his next chance,
I These were pretty slow bllliards.though. and
the Student rubbed some chalk on his cuo and
, started In to liven things up n bit. Tho balls
froze In a minute 1 ho referee had to light u
wax taper to settle the "freeze" question.
The Student tilted his cun on end and mnsHed.
I it drove tho cue ball away from the ohioet
I ballsaud brought It back ngain in a counting
carrom He kept them going aftor that until
he had stored up tk Ho was U7 points
ahead now with a 6coroof 1U7.
The Wizard rattled off 5. and left the balls
almost dead safe" In the upper eornors. The
cuo ball lay near tho roll midway between
thorn. The Student studlod this nlco pro
clicanientalong while. Then ho determined
to bank from tho red in thn eornortothe spot
ti I In the other cornor. It seemed to many
onlookers that thnenrrom counted. But thn
refereo didn't sen It and snld "No count."
'ihehtudont snt down ruefully. The Wizard
Jumped to tho table and let loose some of
tho pyrotechnics that the crowd had
neon nnlting for. There was n flight of
skyrocket masses that made thn billiard
livers nnlsy. 'J hn musses were snndnlchod In
between swltt anil pretH tairoins gathered in
jlifforont eornors of the green. The run
bundled 73. It changed the complexion of
things. Iho liuttims now stood hchaefei.

"does not abound in what nctors call points or

from the manager and author on bohulf of the

" It Is now about three years since the pres

"This development hat beon brought about
by tho ujo of bonds which woro provided nt
the time of the roorganlr&tlon, and to some
extent by what might generally be considered

dent that It the continuation of tho present
policy of enlargement of facilities can be
secured by adequate financial provision even
more favorable rosults can bo shown

tically unlimited. The question to bo met Is
how to mako such adequato prov Islon ln a way

The Westtalaater C'nnresaloa Now Rendr
for Preaentatlnn to the Churcb.
Tho Commlttoi on revision appointed by
the last Goncral Assembly of the l'rosbytcrlait
Church to take In hand tho difficult task of re
vising the old Westminster Confession ot
Faith nnd preparing a new Confession that
shall bn ln accord with tho sentiment anil
Ideas of thn Fiesbyterlanlsm of to-day, and bo
satisfactory nnd acceptable to the l'resbyte
rlan Church at large, has finished Its work,
and thonewstatemontof doctiine and belief
Is roady for presentation to ttio Church, The
commit too met for a final session in the Mis
slonHousoin Fifth avenue yesterday morn
ing and ndjournod nt 12:30 1'. M. without day.
Tho session was mainly taken up In perfect
ing minor details in regard to tho form which
the report of the committee to the next Gen
egil Assembly shall take. There has bocn
considerable discussion nnd much divergence
of opinion In regard to manyot tho changes
made, and somo of these changes as now em
bodied in tho Confession have been adopted
only oy a majority vote. It was. therefore, de
cided that the report should submit tho
ehauges made In separate form, oach amend
ment to bo separately signed by tho commlt
toe, nudthemomberstoiiavu the privilege ot
expressing their dissent from any one ot the
clmnges. This will practically amount to tho
making ot a dissenting minority roport. One
of tho members said, howevot, thntit was be
lieved that none of the committee would iivnll
himself of this priv liege, und the leoort would
be submitted as unanimous.
It will be several weeks t.oloto tho report Is
actually ready for signature. It will, of course,
not be made public, but Dr. Moorn, tho Chair
man, snld vohterday that the reports ot tho
committees work ns printed from diytoduy
in TiiKhuv have contained really all tho Im
portant clmnges th.it hnvo been made, nnd
thoro will bono nowe in thu report when It Is
mudo public. In ndjourning the committee
expressed Itself .is highly satisfied nnd pleased
with the unanimity thut has. as .1 whole, char
acterized its work.
This does nor. however, by any means dls
poso of tho question of .revision. The now
Confession will have to bo referred back to all
the rresbytorles throughout tho country (or
their concurrnnco in it. "It cannot reason
ably bo hoped that tho revised Confession ns
iiowadonted will be satisfactory to the whole
Churcli." saidn I'reshvtcrian yesterday, "ln
fact. It will undoubtedly moot vvitli considera
ble dissent of a strong charactor. Tho sug
gestions ofrerod by tho various Fresbjterles
wernvury diverse, and it wns not possible for
the Committee on Itovisionto reconcile them.
In regard to some sections certain l'res
bs lories wnnteil them tu stand unultered.w liile
other Preshyterlos wanted to have tliem
stricken out altogether. 'Ibis vvus partinularly
tho capo In iceanl to the doctrlnosof pre
tention, ot effectual calling, and of soment
those loferrlng to tlm Chun hot Home. It was
impossible to reconcile these entirely opposite
suggestions, mid In some points tho revision
bus necessarily been a eompiomise and in
others thero has had to bo a choice of tvvu
things. It would seem thnt tho work ot revi
sion must go on indefinitely, or thut the rnroit
ot tho committee be adopted In tho Church bv
n majority vote. In the luttor case, whicli
many l'rosb-.torians think most probable, of
course a great amount of dissatisfaction must
necessarily remain in the Church. But it Is a
most perplexing problem."
.No further action on revision will ho taken
until the meoting of the General Assembly at
I'ortland, Or., next M.ty.

Wheelor saw this ho stopped work, and the

reason why Mr. Wheeler stopped (uithcr in

had been 111 for several months past and tho
dawn of tho new year found him vory feeble
andcenrinod to his bed. His malady did not
consist of any specific ailment but it was a
general breaking down of his entire system,
once so rohuttnnd active He was conscious
within two hours ot his denth, nnd he spoke
then In a rational manner. When the end
came, at a quarter pant 0 o'clock yesterday
morning. Mrs. Dradloy, her two daughters

a nurse, wore present at tho bedside.
Joseph 1. Ilradley could trnce his ancestors

to have seized this opportunity with eager
