The meeting of the West Presbyterian Church
which was held on Wednesday evening for the
purpose of disposing of the question of the
resignation Of the Ilev. Dr. Paxton, the past.r of
the ehunh, instead of settling the vaned ques?
tion, Mema to have plunged th. congregation
into greater uneertHlnty than eyer. Aside from
th'- sir":''' feeHnga entertained by each side in
the coat-overey, the situation ls peculiar. Dr.
Paxton sent his isslgiiBlloit to th>* church. The
session recommended that it be accepted. The
church held a meeting, and after an exciting de
bate voted to request Dr. Past m to withdraw ins
resignation sad appointed s committee to walt
anon Mm At the request of the committee, Dr.
Paxton authorised them to announce that h.*
withdrew bis reslgBatloa. The committee re
portad this fs 1 to the meeting of the church
oa Wednesday evening. The report was ac?
cented, bat .a motion to adopt it was lost by a
rote of '?'?> to 5*
Noa tbe question is. "Is Dr. Paxton still pas
(,r ot the church, having withdrawn his reslgna
t. . or ls the Anal vate at Wednesday's meeting
tu be construed as a refusal on the part of the
Chinch lo allow him to withdraw his reslgna*
tion'."' Opinions differ on this point and both
tie- Mends and opponents Of Dr. Paxton seem
to he walting to let the affair settle itself In
j,.,me way or other. Dr. Paxton is at Bridge*
ville, Penn.. SQ Ins views on the subject could
nut be learned
Dr. Joaeph Finch, one of the committee who
conferred arith Dr. Paxton, was seen at his home,
No. IO.} West Forty-loin th-st.. by a Tribune re*
porter last evening. Dr. Finch said:
??pr. Paxton ls still pastor of the church. 1
have littl" doubt that he will return to us strong
and well, and continue th" good work he has
doing. The stories that have been circu?
lated about him are false. He does tahe s glass
of win-' occasionally, but I don't believe that lie
.?vcr Mas drunk. There is no proof forthcoming
(rom Dr. Paxton's critics."
-Du you think that the return of Dr. Paxton,
after what has happened, will cause any split
in the church?" was ashed.
"I think it lik'dy that ;i few may ko out.
three or four, perhaps. Put they are not tuen
who give largely to the support of the church,
nor ate they men of larg ? moral Influence.
They sre better out Mun In. If they should
empty the church. Dr. Paxt -ti would lill lt,
stn li is his wonderful preaching pow. i and per?
sonal magnetism I hai ? not heard from Dr.
Paxteti sir. <? the last meeting. What will come
cf it i cannot say. Tbe tut ur.- ls problemat?
Robert Jaffray, a member of the evasion and
Hoard of Trustees, one of tin.se who recom?
mended that Dr. Paxton's resignation be ac?
cepted, declined t" .li.-- us:- the probable effect
on the church which the return ol Dr. Paxton
would have. He <-;>.id. however, thal In his
..Iiiii "ti Dr. Paxton was legally the paator of
the church.
Russell Bage takes s different view. Tie told
a Triiiiitie rep 'tt-t wh ' saw him al his home
last evening that he would renew his offer ;?>
give 110.00. to the church if h.- was not c..nert
in the position whit li be took at thi meeting on
Wednesday, thal Dr. Paxton ceased to i"- pas?
tor of th.- church the moment his resignation
was In the hands of the secretary, and that it
would !>.- necessary t.elect him if h
was to resume his pastoral dutlea "I am ;i
member of twenty-seven corporatli ns," said Mr.
Sag*1, "and 1 know what I am talking about.
This case was decided when Mr. Belhnap, Sec
rotary of War under General Grant, resinned.
Th. Senate tried to Impeach him f<>r malfeas?
ance in office hut wilde the pioiee.lir.es were
going <?n h.- met President Grant In tbe street
sud ga\. bin his resignation. The Supreme .
Court decided thal after that Mr. Belknap was
no longer Secretary <>f War. and could not be
? wv proceed on the same policy in the West
era Union and In all the corporations In which
l am Interested. When s resignation is in that
settles it. Dr. Paxton is no lon (er pastor of the
.hinch. I will giv.* $10,000 to the church if this
ts not so."
mi:, siivinski. pianist.
Mr. Josef KIP in -1:1. a pianist of Whom ara have
been toM several times a week during the last
two months that he is a Pole, a friend of Psderew
f-ki. sad s pupil of PadereWskl'i teacher, save his
first concert In America in the Concert Hull of
the Mmilson Square Garden laal night. All the
locations which we have enumerated are doubt
Ups greatly to his credit, yet we eonceive ii poa ?
b!? for a man to possess them all und still fall
short of being a great pianist. This being bo, it
would, perhaps, have been wiser if Ism had been
said about his nationality, his friendships snd his
training and the pabllc had been permitted to think
of him only la his artistic capacity. Also it would
have been wiser If hs liral not been ashed to pul
tWS tenet Its into one. At half-past )>J o'clock be
had just Bnlshed two-thirds of his programme, snd
there remained Rubinstein's concerto ia .p minor
still to be played. The work bs had accomplish! I
consisted in a performance <>f Schumann's concerto
and eleven solos by Beethoven, Chopin, Field,
Mendelssohn. Schubert and Liszt. A little piano?
forte music goes a. great way on Thanksgiving
I)ay, and a large portion of the sudience aeemed j
to have concluded that its curiosity touching bia !
merits was amply satlshsd, for it left the hull
Without waiting for the Rubinstein concerto. The
Inclfleni was unfortunate, for it .seemed to imply
a criticism which we cannot believe to have been
Intended. In such trials of endurance, however, I
the listener is more fortunately circumstanced than
the performer, an 1 s reviewer would lia v.- to bs
endued with an ai.normal ca].:..-ity for enjoymenl
<not to say endurance), and nol a little want of
consideration for the comfort of others, who v. mil
upbraid an audience for being content with two
hourn' of mush chiefly <>i th.- pianoforte vari. ty.
Besi.es it la undeniable that the concert conveyi i
the hap!isalon tbat its purpose waa to snow now
haft hov, ins* ..nd how loud Mr. Bllvlnskl could
play, and for this, agata, th.* programme seemed
to be quite os much responsible as the performer.
?.'on.ernlni* the nature and extent of Mr. Siivin
akl's gifts anil nra. es. there will be opportunities
to speak with snore deliberation and fulneaa
hereafter. H. is beyond peradventure an artist
of high rank. He" hus remarkable nlmblenens
?n l strength of Anger; le- has a line aense of Hie
vale- of ryhthnis; he hes command ol a superbly
snnorouH ton,-, hs baa s stanly and virile style,
?ri'i be haa musical Intelligence of a high order.
He may also have a BUlflclenl degree ot poetical
Charm to make the public anxious to hear his
readings of the many pieces in his Hst; but or
this last night's performance did not give i rn*
yincinj* proof, lie ls not a pultun aentfmentaHat
In Chopin's mual.. which ls a came fur gratitude.
The audience which heard him was well able I ?
Ju.*, of its merits, and it was generous In Ita
applause, ,ven if s. larc*- a portion of ll decllni i

The reason v.ns obvioua, and was bo disparage*

The time-honored obeervances of Thaahaglv*
lng Day were heightened In enjoyim nt by mild
and lovely weather, which set ;?! defiance thc j
malign predictions ..f New-Tork*a forecast oin
car. Th.- bright skies and balmy mr favored
the most brilliant display of women's roatumes
<m the promenades, where ihe out-door sports
drew thousands of spectators, and at Hie thea*
ir-:--. The weather was truly iii for iii- festival
; which has drawn far away in character from
; the austerity whir!] marked the .arly days ,.r
th" celebration tirst s.-t i.y th- puritans, 272
; yeara ago.
Tin- holiday was most widely observed, and !
i all business, except of the mos; necessary
kinds, was generally suspended. Th. social
table, ar.,un.i which gathered thousands of fami?
lies, brought the warmest enjoyment to the]
home circle, but the rrollcs of the children In
fantastic street parades, the masquerading >>r
infant- "of a lai Ker growth," the special hills
of the places of amusement and the games of
football and other contests were large and lm* i
portent features of the day's attractions.
Tie- Thankagivlng services In the churches
were w.-ll attended, too, ar.d the less fortu* '
nate members of the community found ample
che.-r itt generous dinners spread i.y the public j
institutions, charity societies and private benev
olence. The Mg hotels piled up tempting viands !
f"i th.-r bibulous patrons, and turkey iii Amer- |
i.a suffered everywhere from an onslaught, |
throwing into the shade the raids of th.' Rus?
sian hear upon Turkey in Rurope rn Asia. The
shadow of hard limes rested unhappily Upon
the holiday, but foi- the ne.,neut anxiety waa
laid aside Whenever it could be, and the hours
were given ni. to rejoicing snd merrymaking.
Th.- day was marred by few mishaps and th"
.lose of the celebration, ss usual. v,.i? highly
colored by the wild jubilations of th" great
army of friends .-ind patrons ..f the proud vi. tors
in th* foremost contest over thc pigskin. Ami
in the revolution of hop,..: and predlctlona
caused by Princeton's victory lhere seemed t.
many io be a Thankagivlng Incident more Im?
portant than the Wilson bill's proposed over?
throw of the tariff.
