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
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

THE APPROPRIATION EXHAUSTED.
All Further Cut Printing Hns Been
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
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.

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
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.

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. Call and see the piano, or send for
circular. Alex. Boss. Manager,

THE CONFESSION 0. K
No Disposition on the Part of local
Presbyterians to Change.
THEIR REASONS FOR KEEPING IT.
A Paper of Eev. Dr. Purves on That Point
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
"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.

Dr. Bhafer, one of the physicians of the
Polypatbic Medical Institute, at 420 Penn ave.
Mr. C. V. Pulpress, of No. 18 liberty street
Allegheny, had for a lone time suffered from a
weak, tired feeling, no ambition, pain across
the small of his back and palpitation of the
heart His complexion was very sallow, and as
the diseased condition of bis kidneys from
which he suffered further progressed, his stom
ach became involved. He had bloatimr. belch
ing of gas anddistress after eating. He lost
flesh, his memory became poor and his mind
became so affected that be could neither read or
think, and was in coustant fear of becoming in
sane. He often felt dizzy, so that everything
seemed to be in a whirl, and he became so
nervous as to entirely unfit him for any busi
ness. Having read In the papers that the
physicians of the PoUpathlo Medical Institute,
make a specialty of kidney and urinary diseases
he began treatment with them. His own words
state the result: "This is to certify that I have
been cured by the phvsicians of the Polypathic
Medical Institute at 120 Penn avenue.
