TKINITT CHURCH AFFAIRS
wf. Humor of Rector IIIniweir Retlimntlnn
Again Unde Pnbllc.
Some confusion exists in regard to the
affairs of Trinity P. E. Church in the minds
of the public, and rejiorts are again current
that the rector, Rev. Samuel Maxwell, has
been requested to resign. A vestrj meeting
was held last week at which the affairs of
the ruinsh were very fully discussed.
"While a vestryman brought up a motion
to request of their rector his resignation for
the good of the church solely, and upon no
other grounds, the natnre of the debate upon
the motion was such that it was not pressed
to a final vote, and the entire matter is just
where it was several years since. Dissatis
faction with Eev. Mr. Maxwell is no new
story in the church, and. while appearances
have been carefully attended to. the rector of
1 Trinity has had some varied tastes to please
feiucc auu uuriu uia incuujueucy.
It is Stated that shonld not Mr. Marwell
resign of his own volition, it will be impos-
biujc iui iug vcotrj iaj lurce mm to retire
from the rectorship. The feeling that his
congregation is not entirely harmonious, it
is thought, will have far more effect upon
Mr. iilaxwell's actions than any reason he
can present to his own mind growing out of
the administration of his- dnties, which all
concede to have been faithlul in the ex
treme. The rector has many friends in the church
who contend that tne conservatism of his
KTiews, and his liberality on many questions
have made his congregation feel sale under
iis guidance. "With a large congregation
and many duties devolving upon him. he
kfhas uncomplainingly assumed burdens
-which few rectors of such large churches
Several of the congregation are avowed in
heir advocacy of a change and believe that
ne will come in the near future.

The meetings of "both branches of Pitts
burg Councils yesterday sere rather tame.
In Select Councils, a jgamber of petitions
and ordinances were presented and referred
for locating and grading-streets and other
matters. One was to provide ior the open
ing ot Forbes Street, from Shady avenue to
the Homewood cemetery.
The report of the Department of Public
Safety for Kovember, showing $51,701 55
expended, was adopted. The report of the
Department of Charities -for November,
showing 510,457 67 expended and 5201 re
ceived, was also adopted.
Chief Brown and Morris Head, owing to
the net work of wires in the streets, asked
for an additional lineman, and the request
A resolution from Chief Brown to pur
chase from J. E. Glass for $2,700 an engine
house lot in the Thirty-first ward, provoked
a spirited discussion about the price and
location, but it finall v passed with a vote
of 22 to 2.
Mr. Bobertson presented a scries of reso
lutions requesting B. F. Jones to fill up the
vacancies in the Appraisers board on lree
bridges. The resolution was passed.
H. C Howard complained that his bid to
improve Grandview avenue was $500 lower
than the others. Councils discovered lie
had Inrnished only one bondsman, and his
complaint was ignored, as h?did not fulfill
the requirements as to sureties.
A number of ordinances were passed,
among them one locating Forbes street, from
Boyd to Diamond streets. The location and
grades of other streets -were also determined.
A sewer will be put down on Twenty-eighth
street, and private properties of Henry
Phipps, Jr., "West Penn Hospital and
Pennsylvania road. Chief Bigelow was re
quested to put the sidewalks on Soho street,
from Fifth avenue to Center avenue, in good
President Holliday, after many weeks of
illness, presided in Common Council. A
number of ordinances were presented. One
ordinance provided that water mains shall
be laid in new streets when any person or
corporation pays to the city the'eost of lay
ing the sime. and providing iurtber, that
the amount paid shall be returned when the
water rents received by the city from the
main amount to 10 per cent of 'the cost of

Tbe Hospital Satnrdnr Fnnd la Not more
The Fidelity Title and Trust Company
began yesterday to open the hospital Satur
day and Sunday boxes, which had been dis
tributed at various points through the city.
The scheme was a failure. There was only
one box that contained over $25, and many
had less than $5 in them. The boxes have
not all been collected vet, bnt will be to-day.
Secretary C B. McVay said last evening
that the people did not understand the
scheme thoroughly. Some of the boxes con
tained copies of The Dispatch and other
newspapers, while nearly all of them con
tained very small amounts. The total
amount raised will scarcely exceed $500.
Hit by a Train.
Charles Carney, aged 56, stepped out of
the way of a train in the Pittsburg and Lake
Erie yards, yesterday, and was struck by a
locomotive on another track. His ribs were
broken and his arm dislocated. He was re
moved to the Sonthside hospital.

LIHT-COLORED FAINT IS A FEATURE
Pittsburg is growing, and the evidences
of the fact, as in any healthy youth, are
shown in the growing panes which shine
from tbe walls of tbe buildings put up
within the year. Assistant Bnilding In
spector J. A. A. Brown said yesterday:
"I have not the slightest doubt that when
the year's estimate is finished accurately it
will show $900,000 advance over last year,
the aggregate cost of the buildings ior 1889
reaching close on to $7,000,000. This is
a very good showing, and I am
glad to be able to record it,
more especially as the builders for some
years bad become careless in taking out the
permits, and had to be chased up after tbe
contracts were about half completed. No
man who does his duty as a Building" In
spector can judge of the material in either a
brick or stone wall after it has been built,
pointed and finished. I condemned several
loads of brick to-day which were to have
been put into a chimney, while if the chimney-
had been built, faced with good brick
and made to look pretty, it would be im
possible to detect the bad material except
by shinning up the inside and punching

the builders have been coming into line and
taking out permits in time, which enables
us to keep an accurate record of the progress
of the city."
Just at this moment Councilman Evans,
of the Twenty-seventh ward, entered the
office, and corroborated Captain Brown's
statement by getting out a permit for a
building upon which ne bad been some time
THEEE BUILDINGS IN FOBTY TEARS.
The building operations for the year 1889
reveal some very startling if not amusing
facts. One bnilding has been put up in the
Thirty-third ward, the third within 40
years. Those who will remember Con
troller Morrow's sarcastic remarks about
the Assessor's bill for doing the work be
tween the Smithfield street and the Point
bridges on one street will appreciate the
reason why so few buildings have been
erected in an almost exclusively manu
facturing district ot very few blocks
in extent. The- 'total number
of buildings erected up to yesterday was
3,241 during the year, as against 2,676 for
1888. The appreciation in value, as noted
above, lies notso much in the larger num
ber ot places put up as in the superior .style
of architecture, and the improvement in the
material resulting from a close watch by the
Another tact visible to the naked eye, as
Inspector Hoffman puts it, is the general
cleanliness of the buildings and the bright
effect of tbe light-colored paint which some
years ago would have been a waste ol money.
Seven years ago a building painted white
would be a curiosity during its brief career
in that hue, while to-day the sun flashes
down rays upon thousands of such houses
all raised since the advent of natnral gas.
