FEBRUARY 15. 1917. 1 ) Ar Blamed for Man's Death : A on, CONFESSION OF FAITH ADOPTED BY REV CHURCH plot Binding on Members, Congregation Decides. CAUSE OF MUCH DISCUSSION . . .. ., . Declaration Is Approved by East Avenue Baptists as Merely Suggestive, Not as Placing: Obligation on Any Member of Society Driver of Coal Wagon A Itnost Instantly Kitted by Car on Sea Breeze Line. The congregation' of the East Avenue Baptist Church, which comprise the former congregations of the Second and Park Avenue churches, met last evening in the Second Chnrch and adopted the institution by which the new church is to be governed. Rev. Ernest It. Tar-obi presided. Attached to the proposed constitution was a "Confesiaon of Faith," written by Rev. eGorge R. Cross, D. D., nrofesor of y sterna tic Theology at the Rochester Theological ?-It was introduced with the Jw;n that it he adopted as merely wKestire and should be m no sense En a n member of the church. There was some opposition to its incorporation in the records lest it be interpreted as a binding code, and a long argument followed. Motions were made successively that it be referred to the Board of Deacons for action and that it be removed from the records. Rev. Charles II. Rust, pastor of the church, objected, however, on the ground that a failure to adopt it might be interpreted as unwillingness to knowledge something written by Dr. Cross. The writer had spent years, he said in preparing the confession. It was auopieu, mm uk m... is follows: 1 We believe In one supreme, personal Joo Father of our spirits and Author or the Cnlverse; Ruler ana junge " " "r in, and kind, just and holy, forgiving and true; speaking to every human heart; willing-that all men should come into fellow- b? Tvlbww m Jesus Christ: In whom ;tiie God of love has come to us; who gave himself lot an; wnom we ou . t our Uvea; who has revealed to us what we all may be; who Is the friend of sinners .f -ll who seek to be like him. 3 We believe In the eternal unity of the ...n" f j Mil ii in one Spirit: they are n.i in the riznts of spiritual brotherhood; they are servants to one another; they are ever to seek to bring all men of all races n, lira nf this nn holv family; 4 We believe in the eternal worth of ererv man. The good gift of life Is equally .motana to all: the wealth of the good rorld of nature Is for all; every one has the right to the good-will and ministry of all; to fall to render this service or to wrong a fellow-man Is to sin against God. 5. We believe in the sanctity of the tioriilol life of our man with one woman and of narentbood: In the supremacy of the home and the right of all children to the means of attaining to true manhood aiui womanhood. In the sacred dignHyof !bir and of commerce in its products; In the obligation of all men to a pure social ml civil life. 6. We believe In the freedom of religions faith and of thought; in the prerogative of the individual; in his right to propagate lils beliefs among all men without violence ts or from any; that in the exercise of th'.s liberty lies the way to the ultimate unity of all. 7. We believe that the mutual fellow ship of Christians in their common faith and the extension of this faith throughout the world is best promoted by the forma tion of communities of -believers who have 1 confessed their faith bv baptism nfter the manner of the early Christians: f.njse communities should be severally self governing, and at the same time they should cultivate a spirit of Interdependence, sym-!atbv and co-operation in the work of extorting the blessing of their faith to all mankind. L . 8. We believe that our God, fie Father nf our lxrd Jesus Christ and our Father, will never leave us or forsake us: all things shall work together for our pood; even in death we shall be brought nearer to him; in bin presence we shall Hv the life of unselfish and eternal blessedness. Therefore -we do unitedly yield ourselves to him that we. may serve him forever. 3 ROCHESTER BANKRUPTCIES Struck by a citybound Sea Breeae car at a point about 150 feet north of the city line in Portland avenue at 6:45 o'clock last evening, John Meyer, 62 years old, a driver for Lewis Edelman, a coal dealer of No. 88 rorUand avenue, was so seriously injured that be died five minutes after the accident. Meyer's home was at No. 361 Carter street. His body was taken to the morgue and an Inquest will be held. Meyer was on .his way to deliver a ton and a half of coal at the house of Nicholas Uoffend, In Portland avenue, Irondequoit, when the accident occurred. According to persona living In the vicinity, he had started to turn the sleigh into the driveway of the Hoffend house, which is on the west aide of the road when it became caught In a drift. The rear bob of the sleigh was resting on the city bonnd track and Meyer was attempting to get the horses to move the sleigh, when be saw the car approaching. Stepping out on the tracks, it is said, he waved his hands and shouted for the jnotorman to stop. Apparently the motor- man did not see either the man or the sleigh until It was too late to bring the car to a stop, and it struck Meyer and crashed Into the sleigh, ripping the box from the vehicle and spreading the coal over the street. Dr. g. w. Bradstreet, of Woodman road, Irondequoit, was on the car. The physician went to the assistance of the Injured man and he was carried into the house of E. A. Lake, which was next door to ! the bouse where tha load of coal was consigned. Meyer died before an ambulance could be summoned. His neck was broken. Persons living In the vicinity of Portland avenue where the accident occurred claim that the. lack of lights In the road and lack of more powerful lights on the street care was jointly responsible for the accident. There are no street lights In that section of Portland avenue and the light on the car are not strong enough to enable the motorman to See very far in front of the car. Edward Blawsky, of No. ST Kelly street. was operating th car when It struck Mey er. John Mack was tne conductor. Persons who witnessed the accident were of the opinion that the car was running at an excessive rate of speed when It struck Meyer and the sleigh.

The latter feature of our service is strongly accentuated by the wonderful special inducements to February purchasers. A request for permission to shut off for a day the steam supply to the gar- ! bage reduction plant, made to the city by the Rochester Railway and Light Company, was not prompted by a short age of coal, James T. Hutchings, gen eral manager of the company, said yes terday, but to the extra demand on the generating system due to a reduction of power from Niagara Falls, which re duction is caused by blockades of ice in the Niagara river. The company had had no serious shortage of coal, he said, due to the efforts of the dealers from whom it purchases coal and the fact of having a considerable etock on hand at the beginning of the winter. Mr. Hutichings said that the coal situation was . desperate, and that many other large cities were faced with a shortage which threatens to cripple many of their larger industries. In Rochester the householders are the ones to suffer from the coal shortage. Dealers are said to be besieged with orders from families that have used their last shovel of coal, but they are able to fill only a'small part of them.
