BUSINESS HOUSES ARE CLOSED;
TRIPLE HOLIDAY BEGINS TO-DAY.
Seventy-Two-Hour Vacation for. Thousands of Workers Law Pre
vents Closing of Courts and City Hall, but Little Business
Will Be Transacted in These Institutions Until Mon
day Morning Firms Which Grant Employes Kest.
A vacation of three days In many lines
of business begins this morning in St.
Louis. The citizen who salutes the morning
by exploding a giant cracker Is not alone
celebrating the anniversary of the signing
of the Declaration of Independenc. but is
also ushering In with eclat an unusually
long respite from work.
Because of the necessities of many busi
nesses, and because of legal restrictions
which prevent public ofllces and public
service corporations1 from cloning, the holi
day cannot be general. But In comparison
with the normal, the amount of business
transacted In the three days ending Mon
day morning will be very small.
Tne law allows the Fourth of July, and.
of course. Sunday, as absolute holidays in
the City Hall and the courts. On Saturday,
however, the offlces will be open to the few
who have business there. The workers In
the arIous departments will find little to
do. and. beyond the formality of keeping
the offlcen open the required time, the
clerks and officials will have nothing to
worr them. Likewise In the Circuit and
In all public Institutions the three days
will te practically a vacation.
The onlcea In the Federal building will be
only nominally open to-morrow, excepting
the Post Office, which must oecrate all de
partments. To-day the working force at
the Tost Office will be much reduced, and
there will be but one rral! delivery. From
the main office, annex, produce. Cupples'
Block. City Hall and Terminal stations the
delivery will start at 8:30 a. m.. and from
other stations as soon as routed. Collec
tions will be the same as on Sunday.
Down In the financial center of the city
near Broadway and Fourth and Olive
streets will be on Saturday a similar air
of relaxation, yet with the formality of
"open doors"" maintained. The banks and
trust companies found it impossible to al
low the full siventy-lwo hours. But Sat
urday will be a "light day." As the Mer
chants' Exchange and Clearing-house will
be absolutely closed, and since to-day is a
general holiday, many avenues of trade
will be shut off to-morrow and the press of
business greatly reduced. Clerks and other
employes will be compelled to work in tho
morning Twelve o'clock is the usual Sat
urday closing hour, and the employes will
be at liberty very soon after this time.
The markets will be practically shut
down. In addition to the exchange, the St.
Louis Stock Exchange has announced a
formal closing. The cattle markets will
remain open, and also a produce market,
and a curb market will be operated at the
Merchants' Exchange, but here also It Is
expected that little business will be
transacted, and that the Fourth of July
vacation will virtually continue the full
Washington avenue practically will pre
sent to-day and to-morrow it deserted
bunday appearance. The majority of the
wholesale dry goods and shoe houses have
decided either to do entirely or to main
tain a greatly reduced working force. Many
found it Inconvenient to close all depart
ments on Saturday, but the factories, al
most without exception, will be snut down.
In the offlces and Jobbing department some
firms consider it necessary to examine malls
and attend to ciders. Tne latter duiie. it
was said, would require but a portion of a
luil work day, ana that, consequently. It
Mould be necessary to work only In the
The larger retail stores will, with few
exceptions, be closed. All the dry goods
and department stores agreed to give their
hundreds of employes the needed rest, and
the lady who wishes to shop to-morrow will
be compelled to wait until Monday morning.
The period of recreation will doubtless be
the greatest olessmg to the thousands cf
workers employed in such mammotn fac
tories as are operated by the Continental
Tobacco Company and wnere work will bo
suspended, in many of these no wheel wilt
turn. Oat at the Fair site also, where
several thousand men labor daliy, arrange
ment has been made to allow tne tempo
rary relief. By special plan yesterday was
pay day and the men whose physical
strength is building the Fair will have lei
sure and the money with which to enjoy it.
Among the .railroads also effort has be;n
made to give the workers as much freedom
as possible. No relaxation, of course, is
possible in the operating departments even
an increase in the work required is necessi
tated because of the Fourth of July excur
sions. But in the general and commercial
offices the working force will be cut down
to the minimum. The commercial offices
will be closed on the Fourth altogether. A
very few of the clerks must work part of
the day on the Fourth in the general of
fices. Likewise to-morrow.
