MG IXCEEASE TO THE POPULATION
t "Within the past two or three years Pitts
'Jithxug has been gradually forging ahead as
f4ti wkttfa nFthn Ail fielrQ it- TOVxPITI Tnn-
'svlvania. The nrodacers. the oil companies
and the drillers have come to look upon this
city as headquarters, and when an oil man

to be away on a pleasure ex-
In the early days Pithole with its saloons,
s concert halls, its wealth, adventurers.
land all the rices of ancient Babylon, was
' the oandle around which all the petroleum
moths first gathered, and since that time the
' .oil centers have been changing every few
years. Very few of the men who partici
'v pated in the first excitement can now be
found in the Tan of the vast army of people
who are seeking wealth by means of the
" drill or in speculation. The crude at that
time was transported in barrels by wagons
from the wells to the railroads or to the Al
legheny river, down which they were floated
upon immense rafts. It was then
. worth $8 and $9 a barrel, and
, ' .thousands made tortunes within a few
months following the day when Colonel
'Drake brought the first petroleum to her
surface with his primitive drill. Thousands
also lost the wealth which they had thus
suddenly accumulated, and to-day men can
,. be seen on the streets of Pittsburg who were
V. then worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
A MOVING METROPOLIS.
CAs the oil territorv was gradually devel
oped, the metropolis of the oil country, like
,tKe magnetic north pole, moved gradually
ifafrom place to place. From Pithole it
armed to refoieum center, uii uitj, ana
thence to Butler, Greece City, and subse
quently to half a dozen mushroom towns
which sprang up in a night, and vanished
with the first rays of the morning sun.
In 1874 the Bradford field was opened up.
and, from a quiet village known to the raft
men and lumbermen as Littleton, it sud
denly developed into a city of 15,000 inhab
itants. The territory around it held out
longer than any, of the other fields, and
Bradford became a solid and substantial'
city, instead of disappearing as the others
had done. Sichburg and Allentown, K.
X., and then Garfield and Farnsworth
claimed the attention of the oil world in the
order named. When the bottom fell out of
Cherry Grove, which, by the way, was lo
cated in the midst of a hemlock forest miles
'away from the nearest railroad station,
pipe lines were laid, and railroads to the
- new oilyopolis were being surveyed.
J ' THE BOTTOM DBOFPED.
5 The forest for three months teemed with
it humanity. When the bottom dropped the
jjr nnterrified driller sought new fields and it
y was not long before the "Washington field
"5 was heralded as the land of oil. There was
t an exodus from the upper fields which was
J Washington's gain, and it was not long be
fore every oil company, operator, or oil well
. snpply firm of any prominence was not rep
resented in the new territory.
From Washington they have branched
out, and the West Virginia, Ehannopin,
t, Hookstown and Allegheny county develop-
ments have been the result. TheMaksburg
pool was anxiously watched by operators,
who hoped that its staying qualities, and
- area would place it on an equal with the
other first-class fields, but the men who had
. invested their capital in the new territory
"folded their tents like the Arabs and as
-silently stole away."
TVith the development of the new fields
; "above, below, and indeed, all around Pitts-
burg, this city gradually became the center
of the oil fields, and to-day it is safe to assert
that there arealmostas many people in Pitts
burg who are interested in the oil business
nas'in any 'city of what is known as the oil
COMING TO PITTSBUBG.
f Operators have opened their offices here,
oil companies have made this their head
quarters, and machine shops and supply
companies which have followed the oil
fields have established themselves in Pitts
burg. C. W. Pratt, of the firm of Bayne, Wilson
J& Pratt, when speaking yesterday, of the
influx of oil men said: "It is astonishing
- to see the way this city is filling up with
people who are interested in the oil busi
ness, one way or another. There are thou
sands of them here, and Pittsburg people do
not realize the amount of capital which has
betn brought here within the
last two or three years. Why Fourth ave
nue is gradually being given up to them.
With a few exceptions all the offices on
Fourth avenue, between Smithfield and
, Wood streets, are now occupied by oil men.
I know, personally, hundreds of men who
have come to Pittsburg from the oil conntrv
within the last year, and each of them has a
C family which will add to the population of
the city. Pittsburg is the real cen
ter of oildom. From it men who
- are interested in the upper or lower
fields can take a train from this city to their
'-wells almost any hour in the day and be
Vhome for supper. It is so convenient here
-ftbat men who havebeen living inTitusville,
Oil City or Bradford, find that thev can
save money and be more at home if they are
interested in the lower country by living in
-,Pittburg. All of these men are interested
in Pittsburg's welfare."

A BEEEZr PRESBITERr.
Tlio BIonoDsabela U. P. Brethren Enjoy a
Lively Session Rev. McCrory nnd Dr.
Knox Clash on the Tobacco Question.
A lively passage occurred yesterday at
the meeting of the MonongahelaXT. P. Presi
bytery in a Mt. Washington church over
the resignation of Rev. James A. Lawrence,
pastor of the lit Gilead and Coraopolis
chnrches. He said that he desired to resign
because of "a poor Salarv.irregularly paid,"
whereupon Delegate Irons, of Coraopolis,
came to the front with a statement that Dr.
Lawrence did not visit enough, and that
the preacher passed by the door when there
was sickness inside. Women were members
of the church, but their husbands were not?
nor was any effort made to bring them in.
It was developed that the church meeting
at which it was voted 18 against and 15 for
accepting the pastor's resignation, was held
on Sunday, an illegal proceeding according
to usage. After some cross-firing abont the
propriety of holding church meetings on
Sunday, it was agreed that the book of rules
did not prohibit such meetings, and the
resignation was accepted. .
Dr. Eeid then read the Home Mission Com
mittee report, showing that the Presbytery
quota was 17,150, while only 9,159 86 had
been raised. In explanation of the deficit,
Kev. Mr. Knox said: "Some members of a
Wylie avenue church have averred that the
committee misused the money, taking so
much in presents and commissions that
verv little of it reached the objects for
which it was given."
After this pleasant little bombshell the
Presbytery adjourned for dinner. A pe
tition from 42 persons living near Ben
Venue was presented asking for a church.
At the afternoon session the courtesies of
the Presbytery were extended to Bev. George
B. Murray, of Nebraska. The Thirty-third
Street XT. P. Church was reported organized
and a collection was ordered to be taken up
in all the churches in its aid. Rev. Dr.
Boyd introduced a resolution looking toward
a rigid examination ot would-be church
members; really a resolution in favor of the
book of discipline. He reported it in a
strong speech. Opposition was manifested
immediately, Bev. J. T. McCrory saying
that he did not want to advertise to the
world that the IT. P. Church was loose in
that respect, or that insinuations could lie
against the sessions. The resolution was
An amendment to the book of discipline
was offered as follows: "No student ad
dicted to the nse of tobacco in any form
shall be admitted to a license to preach.
No one shall be eligible to the office of
ruling elder who is addicted to the use of
tobacco in any form."
A vote was taken, accompanied by oral
reasons for voting against it The opinions
of many were that the amendment had no
place in the book of discipline; also that
they could not conscientiously vote that the
student should not use tobacco while the
older clergymen and others were allowed to
Rev. J. T. McCrory thought the church
should take up the question of tobacco inas
much as States were stopping the sale of
cigarettes. He thought there were old men
who would make excellent elders who had
used tobacco all their lives, and who could
not at this date break the habit, their sys
tems not allowing them to live without
Dr. Knox rose to a point of order, and Rev.
Mr. McCrory retorted that he would include
some ministers who could not be kept alive
Dr. Knox again called for a point of
order, but the Moderator refused to concede
it Dr. Knox then remarked that Mr. Mc
Crory should keep within the bounds of
decency. The vote resulted in 22 to 8 on
It was stated that C. B. Bossell, who was
taken under care of the Presbytery two
years since as a student, was now in charge
of a Lutheran church at Benwood, W. Va.,
and Dt. Knox said that action had been
hasty, as the young man was nothing but a
tramp. Rev. Mr. McCrory took exceptions
to the characterization, and insisted that
Bossell should not be spoken of in such an
unkind manner. Dr. Knox repeated his
assertion, and added to it that Bossell was
not only a tramp, butin certain respects an
imbecile, and said that there were rumors
afloat that his conduct was anything but
that of a student for the ministry.
