A PETITION WITH 12,000 SIGNERS. judffe ITagee Declines to Express an Opin ion on the Subject. 1E HELD FOR 11UEDEEIKG BATCHER The petition for the granting of more re tail liquor licenses was heard yesterday 'morning by Judges White and Magee. The petition, which was the one presented to Judge Ewing a few months ago, was sub mitted by Attorneys Kobb, Cohen and tfdontooth. Attorney Cohen argued the matter first, dwelling on the necessity of more licensed saloons. Mr. Kobb and Mr. Montooth fol lowed, making lengthy addresses on the subject A second petition, asking for the (granting of the first was also presented. It had over 12,000 names appended. When the arguments were concluded Judge Magee said that as lie was not a member of the License Court he did not see what he had to do with the petition. Judge White immediately said that he alone was responsible for the number to which the licenses have been reduced; but as to whether it is expedient to grant more licenses at the present time was a matter upon which all the Judges of the Quarter Sessions Court of this term would be re quired to pass. The responsibility did not rest upon one, but upon all. If the others agreed he would consent to grant more licenses. If himself and one other agreed they would be granted. He concluded by saving that if he had it to do over again, with the light he now has, he would grant more licenses. The Court took the papers without fur ther remark. THE GUAM) JURY'S WORK. .

Why All Further Cut Printing Hns Been Plopped, City Controller Morrow yesterday issued an order to the various departments stop ping any further orders for printing. When asked the reason for this course Col onel Morrow said he wished to see exactly where the city stood, and that when this was definitely ascertained measures might be taken to go on with the work. He would not at present say any more on the subject than that the printing appropriation was about exhausted through the contract for the assessors' book and he was determined to find the exact state of affairs belore incur ring any more indebtedness. Prom the tone of bis remarks it was apparent that he saw a way out of the difficulty, but refused to state what that was until he found what was needed. George Sheppard, City Clerk, said, in regard to this order, that such a step had been taken before, which had partially had the effect of stopping legislation, so tha't when people interested in an ordinance wanted it put through they had to defray the printing expenses themselves. The appropriation for printing this year was $13,500, as against 15,000 last year, and the ordinances had to be printed three times in three papers, based on their circulation, which materially raised the cost, so the ap propriation should have been larger instead ot smaller. The assessor's book, he thought, might reach ?3,500, but this was not all. There were 50 ordinances passed lately, and hundreds awaiting. This year there were 60 per cent more ordinances than ever be fore passed in a single year. This, he said, showed that unless the contingent fund could be drawn on or some other means de vised to tide over the difficulty, the wljeels of civil legislation would be stopped and the grinding out of ordinances be merely the production of chaff from whpat. There was one exception, he said. Chief Bigelow had an appropriation for printing street ordinances which may carry that species of legislation through. In February next Councils could clear up business which had lagged through lack of funds, and take from the trouble involved a lesson to make the new appropriations sufficient to cover the necessary expenses, as well as probably some indebtedness. "Co yon think this order ot the Controller will shut up Councils?" was asked of one of the Hall officials as he left the building for the day. "Wish it would, or anything else would, but I'm afraid it can't," was the reply, as he stepped out into Smithfield street and started for his home. A TERRIBLE BLOW. Acnle Palo Seriously Injured by a Little PInymntc. Little Annie Palo, who lives at Ko. 176 Etna street, Ninth ward, is in danger of death, owing from attack of peritonitis and inflammation ot the stomach. Tne child is about 9 years of age, and her attack was superinduced by a violent blow in the abdomen, inflicted by one of her male schoolmates. On Thursday afternoon Annie returned home lrom school in a very serious condi tion. She was racked with pain and was suffering so terribly that she could not give any account of her injuries. When Dr. Hieber was called to attend the child he did what he could to relieve, and she was then able to tell the following story: She had had a quarrel early in the day with one ot her male schoolmates, and after school he renewed the quarrel, and during its progress struck her a terrible blow. She did not know his name, but she would recognize him again if she saw him. KILLED BY A MOSQUITO.

DO YOU WANT A FINE riANOJ Tho Everett Clob or Co-Opcratlve Pyslrm Offers the following inducements, if you wish to pay cash. By becoming a member you win save S75 in the price of the piano and get it at once. If yon cannot spare the cash you can get your piano any time, on pay ments of 25 cash and S2 50 per week, no interest; and still save $75 in the price. If you cannot pay so fast, by waiting until your number is drawn you will get your piano on payments ol ?1 per week, no inter est, and save 575 in the regular price to our retail trade. Think of this! Our club is composed of 350 members, each paving $1 per week. Thus you see the members are buying for cash, and one piano is delivered to the member whose number is drawn each week, until all are supplied, or. if one-half of the members take their pianos and pay 52 50 per week, we deliver'twice the num ber, and get double the amount of cash each week, and it leaves only one-half the num ber to be drawn on the 51 weekly payments. It is a simple business problem. We arc saving our members the difference in price by contracting for 350 pianos at one time, and on a cash basis. We have now enouch members to guarantee the success of this plan, and have derided to begin delivering the pianos on Saturday, September 21. Dp not wait, but apply for membership at once.

K No Disposition on the Part of local Presbyterians to Change. K THEIR REASONS FOR KEEPING IT. A Paper of Eev. Dr. Purves on That Point Heartily Supported. GENERAL CHUKCH.NEWS AND GOSSIP The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States, ot its last meeting, sent down as an overture to the Presbyteries two questions for them to vote upon: Do you desire any change in the "Confession of Faith?" If so, to what ex tent? This overture is the subject which attracts attention among all Presbyterians, as there is a sentiment largely prevailing that it could be improved by certain changes in its wording, not to affect its doctrines, but to make plainer to some minds what is meant to be taught At the meeting of the Pitts burg Presbytery, in the Hazelwood church, on Tuesday last, tho Bev. G. T. Pnrves, D. D., pastor of the First Church, this city, presented a papor, which, after being discussed pro and con, was adopted as tho sense- of this Presbjtery. His paper reads: "in reply to tho Assembly's overture on the revision of the 'Confession of Faith,' the Pres bytery of Pittsburg declares that it does not deslro revision. "First We aro sincerely attached to the sys tem of doctrino contained in the Confession, and would oppose any movement likely to im pair tho Integrity of that system. "Second We deem tho proposal to revise tho phraseology of the confession, even though made with the intention of preserving the sys tem of doctrine unchanged, inexpedient 1. Because the confession as it stands has proved through years of strife and growth adequate for the purposes for which the church needs a confession: has been found fully consistent with revivals and missions, and has served hap pily to unite in an ecclesiastical household Cal vinists of various types. While not pretendlnjr that it is perfect we regard it as the most cor rect complete, moderate and carefully drawn summary of Scripture doctrine which has been produced by the church, and fear that changes in its language might lilnacr rather than help its future usefulness. 2. Because the possible Improvements which might be made in Its Ian cuago do not promise to be worth the risk which an attempt at revision would incur. 3. Because popular misunderstandings of one doc trine are not likely to be removed by the mere change or omission of peculiar phrases in the Confession, and. therefore, constitute no suffi cient reason for Its revisiou, while tho effort to remove them may lead to supposed or real de clension from the doctrines themselves, i. Because, finally, the terms of subscrip tion required of our office bearers binds no one to the exact phraseology of the Confes sion, but allow ample Ubert, within the limits nf essential Calvinism, for those who dissent from the details of its statement Revision could not secure more uniformity of belief than now exists, for the terms of snbscription would remain the same. It would in no nay increase, the practical efficiency of the Church nor make her testimony stronger to the truths of evan gelical Christianity, while It might raise serious obstacles to future union with other branches of tho Presbyterian family. If any doctrines seem inadequately expressedby tbo Conlesslon we are of tbo;opinion that a declaratory state ment similar to that adopted by the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland in 1879, would bo preferable to any revision of our honored and hereditary symbol." The Allegheny PresDytery also voted on tho overtures at the same time, and by a vote of SI to 5 decided that any change is not desirable. .
