A. QEEAT ADTANTAGE IS IGNORED
TSTZOAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISrATCII.
Chicago, Nov. SO. The aggressiveness
characteristic of Chicago has caused the
Chicago Presbytery of the Presbyterian
Church to lead off in disapproving the milk-and-water
changes which were made in the
creed of that church by the recent General
Assembly. The great majority by which
the changes proposed were disapproved 38
to 15 indicates that the class of ministers
are in the fight to stay and that nothing
will satisfy them but a radical revision of
the present statement of the church's belief.
Unlike Pittsburg, the conservatives
here are in a minority, and are
compelled to fight hard for every inch
of ground which they retain. The reason
of this probably is that the church here lias
to win its recruits from the body of the
people. It does not receive its member
ship from inheritance, so to speak, as do
the churches in Pittsburg and other older
communities of the East. The conditions
prevailing in Chicago are identical with
those of many pirts of the West, and there
is scarcelv any doubt that the demand of
the Presb'vtenans for a short, crisp creed
vhich shall be more easily capable of de
fense will be seconded by other Western
rresbyteries which are yet to be heard
A tost Opportunity.
A. recent editorial in The Dispatch
called attention to a Pittsburg man's regret
that Pittsburg would have nothing with
t hich to match the cheap power which
BufHlo would secure by utilizing power
of Niagara Falls and bv which she hoped
to attract manufacturers to locate there.
As an expert at borrowing trouble that
particular I'lttsburger deserves a medal.
The power hat not yet been realized bv
Buffalo; it is at best ouly hoped for, aud
may never come, and when it does come, it
it ever does, it may end probably
will be so expensive as to be unavailable for
the ordinary manufacturer.
Hut there is one thin; iu which Pittsburg
manufacturers are voluntarily depriving
themselves of a great a (vantage and per
mitting their business rivals to get far
sherd or them aud that is in failing to ex
hibit at the Columbian Exposition. One of
the Chicago papers recently published a
complete list of the applicants for space
in all departments, together with
their residences, and another one
published separately lists of applicants
lrom Chicaso, Xew York, Philadelphia and
other Eastern cities. The New Yorkers
v ho propose to exhibit are so numerous that
it took a column and n half nonpareil solid
to contain their names. Philadelphia was
put in a column aud a quarter, Chicago had a
larger showing than either, but the names
of the Pittsburg exhibitors could all be
printed within the compass of two "sticks."
Pittsburg Away In the Rar.
The State of Pennsylvania will have a
xerr large representation among the ex
hibits at the Fair. There isscarcely a town
which will not show something, but in the
number ot exhibits, there are places like
Erie, lor instance, which go ahead of Pitts
burg. It has been pointed out by The Dis
1'A.tch, both by correspondence and edi
torially, that Pittsburg business men by do
ing this are cutting their own throats. It is
not the merchant who has the best goods
who cets the trade. It is the one who
makes the most brilliant and attractive
nlsplay in his show windows and who
excels in calling attention to what he
has. Tne man who advertises is the man
who gets along. In the Chicago Fair there
Is an unrivaled opportnnity for cheap and
effective advertising. Every other city in
the Union is wide awake and eager to take
advantage of it. No city of its size has so
Jew exhibitors as Pittsburg. The space has
not yet been fully alloted, and it is not too
late yet to get in.'
An Important Test Case.
In the midst of the rush of dedication
week the wa'ters at the large cafe of the
Grand Palace Hotel heard that girls were
to be employed in their places and ab
ruptly stopped work and gave notice to
their'head waiter, Mike Driscoll, formerly
ot the Pittsburg Club Cafe, that they would
not be an hand on the following day. The
receiver refused to pay them their wages
up to the time of the strike
and threatened to have the whole force ar
raigned lor contempt of court in quitting
without further notice. One of the men
brought suit for his wages, as a test case.
mid this afternoon recovered judgment for
the lull amount, together with costs and
attorney's fee. The receher gave notice
that he'would appeal the case and declared
that the waiter should not succeed in col
lecting his money without first going to the
Among the marriage licenses taken out
to-day at the County Clerk's office was that
ot N. Koffler, of Pittsburg, who proposes
to marry Mis-. V. Dreidenger, of the same
) lace. Mr. Koffler did not explain to the
cleric why he had brought his brine West to
have the ceremony performed, but merely
added, in compliance with the requirements
ot the law, that he was 28 years of age and

Chicago's Natural Gas Supp y.
Following close upon the introduction of
natural gas in this city come reports from
the source ot supply in Indiana that the
wells are giving out and that the most
Industrious boiing of new wells" cannot
keep up the supply as it was when the
fields were first opened. Many of the com
i anics Iiae ceased supplying factories and
large consumers, and have made as many of
their patrons as possible take their product
through the meter.
Others have issued circulars suggesting
to their patrons the propriety of putting in
u supply of coal to cover a probable de
ficiency in the supply ot gas. One of such
circulars is issued by the Salimonic
Mining and Gas Company, of Fort Wayne.
It announce that thediroctors have author
ized an expenditure of 5120,000 to increase
the supply ot gas, aud says that in view of
the experience ot other cities the invest
ment is a -very hazardous one. "Lima, O.,"
it says, "three years ago had a rock pressure
in her line of 340 pounds, being much above
the Indiana field; to-day it has fallen to
CO pound', and pumps are being put in to
help lorce the gas to consumers. All her
churches school nouses and public build
ings liae been shut oil entirely, aud not
& boiler is supplied at any price."
The officers of the Economic Fuel Gas
company, which has just laid its pipes in
this city, sav that notwithstanding these
reports from Indiana there will be no embar
rassment in Chicago from a shortage in the
supply, but they are taking in advance
all the precautions which the Indiana com
panies are taking, now that the shortage is
actually upon them. The Economic sup
pi. es gas only to private consumers, and in
nil cases prefers patrons who use the gas
for culinary purpose, and in every instance
the supply comes through a meter arid is
charged for at the rate of 0 cents per 1,000
feet The supply of this company is
drawn through two eight-inch pipes
leading from the field, and the
officers say that the amount which
Is thns drawn from its wells is
less than is used by a single large factory
in the Kokomo district They say that it
is the experience of Pittsburg and every
other gas district that when one well fails
another drilled near it will produce a lib
eral supply, and by keeping up the borjng
they are sure of enough gas to keep their
ltocr cahdt and Klein's Duquesne Whisky
euro a cold very quickly.

Announce that they have some of the cele
brated O. T. C Whisky which has become
so popular In the New York clubs and Is be
ing used so extensively by those who Insist
upon having the purest and best. The flavor
of this celebrated Whisky Is something on
usual, and It is admittedly the choicest
article upon the market. Speaking concern
ing it a prominent man recently said:
"It requires a refined Us to to appreciate a
fine Whisky. O. P. C. has become popular
because It is so line, and Its popularity shows
that the publlo taste Is becoming more re
fined. I do not see why people will use an
Inferior article when they can secure the
best at practically the same figure. I use
only O. F. C."
If you have never tasted this celeDrated
Whisky you should certainly try It.
