No act that ha grown out or the man
agement of Hie Centennial exposition,
hasexelled filch universal condemnation
as tho order of the coinmis'doners that
the gates shall remain closed during Sun
day. I.otld nnd earni'st remonstrances
am heard not only lu all parts or Ameri
ca, but come to us from nearly all those
foreign lauds that propose a participa
tion in the great demonstration. And
not the Icat caruot in the protestations
against the enforcement of the order, nro
the leading ministers and priests of the
Christian faith. How u number of tho
lepre.-entatives or other countries have
denounced the order us a marked dls
couitesyto visitors Irons abroad ; how
the secular pi c.-s hafjlenounceil It, the pub
lic b, to foinc extent adviml; but as the
representatives ol'lhc different Christian
churches have spoken inoro recently, a
knowedgo of their earnest mid bold op
position is not so general.
First come the llaptMi-. The. itcv. H.
Ij. Magoou, of tlio 11 road street church,
New York, says :
"I am surprised thai on Mich an open
and dcba(cahlciucttin tlieio fhould be
so much iiarrow-inlmltd domathui.
Let every man follow his own feelings
and observe the Sabbath as he likes. I' or
my part, I do uot have to go into a
church to commune with my (iod. His
presence is manifest throughout nil na
lure. 1 here Is uioiu ol a sermon to me

it. uo to the Centennial "rounds on Sun
day and enjoy the harmless dissipation
ot looking on nature in us beauty, art
lu its perfection, and by no means 1e
bigoted on a suhcct m which eve
bigot should be lilteral."
Dr. Ocorgo Thiirman, of the Society of
Friends, says :
"I would visit the exposition and pay
my fifty cents on' Sunday, tind consider
the day welt spent ami much lulorma
tlon gained in studying the mysterious
laws of science and Its powers as mani
fested in the worklug ot the machinery."
Dr. Cieorgc II. WelhU', of the (Jcriiian
Iteformcd church, said
That ho looked upon the exhibition as
a political thing that did not warrant any
criticisms from him as a minister of the
gospel. As to opening tt on Sunday, he
desired to say nothing mure than that he
saw uo sin In such a course. "Would I
visit It myself on Sundoy ? i would it 1
had time, which I have not ; the care of
my flock demands it all."
Archbishop Wood, of tho Catholic
church, who is the head of the Philadel
phia diocese, says :
The rich have the whole week for
nlcagttrc, hut the poor are confined to
Sunday. I don't see how It can be dese
crated ny sitnpiy assisting me working
clashes to study the, triumphs ot civiliza
tion aim euttcation."
Her. Dr. Furness, the eminent IJul-
tearlan divine, says:
"Most decidedly 1 would have the
f'rouuds open on Sunday. If a choice
md to be made between the opening ot
tho churches and the Centennial grounds
on Sunday, I should declare, emphati
cally, lu favor of the exposition. To work
upon tnoMiuuatn i am entirely opposed,
but something should bo done to make
the day enjoyable and happy. Instead of
solemn and dreary particularly to tho
laboring classes and citizens."
And yet, with this and countless like
appeals for open gates on Sunday, tho
bigotted, Illiberal and Intolerant com
missioners refine to rescind their order t
There were many who, taking the
matter at "first Hush," aggteed that the
commissioners believed themselves acting
in the Interest of good morals. Hut now,

TIIK CITY OF C'AIHO.
The second annual address ol .Mayor
Winter b not elegant n a piece ot com
position, but It embodl' facts and statis
tics that render It w orthy of preservation.
We gather Irom It the follow ing facts of
general Interest:
The total Interest bearing debt of the
cltv of Cairo Is $103,503 ."2, which Is
equivalent to !i:i per capita of our
voting population.
Tho maintenance of the city govern
ment during tho past fiscal year, cost
ll.SSii ll.'i. Total expenditures, includ
ing Interest on bonds, etc., $.VJ.820 9".
Kccclpts from all sources during the
year $00.1 Si 2(1.
Number of actual fires during theycar
21. I.os $20,001 r,:; insiiraco $13,300.
Six of Ihese fires weie eaiicd by the
htirrtlng of coal oil lamps.
Sidewalks built and repaired during the
year, 77,!iMt feel, or nearly littcen iniie-.
which embraces ncaily I ho cntlie yslem
of the city sidewalks.
In treating ol'llie e.pei'-ioI the city
government Ihc mayor throws out a
suggestion that is worthy ol an experi
mental test. It Is this: l!ccelpl. Irom
licenses, lines, etc.. amount, to il3,&'.is.
Ily reducing tho police force lo a chief
nnd two policemen, the salaries ol all
city officers would amount to only
$171 07 per mouth, or $3,W0 per year.
Thoe salaries paid, there would yet re
main in the trea-iiry;$10,2.,tS. Dispense
witlt the lite of gas and garbage carts,
and all repairs on streets and sidewalks
c.Nccpl such as might be made by the
chain vaiig.and (lie $10,2US would boa suf
llcicutsum for id I general purposes. The
pcoplo thus would be relieved ol all taxes
except such a levy as would bo necessary
to provide for the Interest on our bonded
debt ; and should the way he opci.cd for
a legal cseapu from that burden, (hero
would bo no occasion to levy one dollar
of tax for any purpose.
For one wc are entirely willing to
make the experiment. The tew incon
vcnlencles to which wo would be sub
Jectcd, would weigh nothing in the bal
ance against the enormous taxes under
which we arc nt present struggling; and
where is the citizen who would not bear
them with patience, when, through such
trlllln "tribulations" we could go up to
the paradise of au untaxed people.
NT. l.tlDIN AXIS TIIK CAIIIO AM)
TENiiKNNKK KIVKIt IIAII.IIOAH.
The St. Louis Time.-, of a recent date,
In au article on the Cairo and Tennessee
river railroad, recommends it to the pco
pie and capitalists of St. I.ouls, and says
"Cairo will be unable to do much, If any
thing, toward building the road ; but It
Is expected that tho Interest of St. I.ouls
will Induce her capitalist to push the
work forward to completion.''
We hope St. I.ouls capitalists will push
this work forward to completion ; but
what have they donu in tlio past ? How
much assistance did they give to tho
Cairo ami St. I.ouls road, which has been
oftentimes more beucllt to St. I.ouls
than to Cairo, that subscribed $'00,000
towards building it V Nothing ! Abso
lutely nothing. Poor as they may think
Cairo to be, we would not bo surprised
if she would, in time, do
moro lor this road Into Kentucky
and Tennessee than St. I.ouls will. Cairo
hasraUed, or will raise, as "unable as
sho Is," SJ00.00 to pay for tho survey ol
tho road from Mayllcld to Cairo. It
there was "a great deal of capital lying
Idle here," as tho Tunti saya there Is in
St. I.ouls, this road would ho built with
out delay. We agree with the Time
that the road would bo ol great henelit to
St. I.ouls lu enabling them to "reach tho
cotton, tobacco and Iron regions of Ten
iiessce," and In giving them tliu "advant
age of tliu shortest line of narrow gauge
communication with (Icorgla and Ala
bama." Kvcry argument in favor of this road
lorni. i.ouls, applies wiin even htrougcr
force to Cairo, and all wo hope Is that Ht
I.ouls may take hold ol It in carne.it. If
she docs, it will bo more than she lues
ever done for any ciilerprl"o In this ill
tcction. We hope, but fear.
