road to Cairo. Thcro is no doubt the gap
between Cairo and Columbus will be
speedily fillod. Instead of striking the
M. & C. road south of Columbus, it Is
now proposed to run along tho river to
Columbus. All tbe negotiations havo not
yet been completed, but enough is known
to justify us In saying that tho construc
tion of this piece of road is as nearly a
sure thing as anything not really accom
plished can bo. Tbe . work ,wlll require
nearly n million of dollars, and the money
has been arranged for. When tho work
doos commence it will bo put through at

Open or 8hut. Some tlmo slnco The
Bulletin promised, whether In a locative
voice or not I cannot say, to use Its pow
ers of moral suasion on the saloon keepers
of thlscily to "dry tip" on the Sabbath
ay, after the manner of tho barbers, on
tho principle that it Is as much ono man's
right as another's to havo one day's rest in
seven, So far so (rood; but allow mo to
ask If thero Is not a higher prlnclplo upon
which this question should bo adjudicated?
It has boon staled aforetime, that if it is
right to sell or to drink liquor in saloons
on ono day, it Is right to do so on another.
he sophistry of this position is npparont.
Tho same may bo said of nil kinds of la
bor nnd business; but I do not proposo to
discuss this phnso of tho question at all as
It Is not the point at issue, but to enquire,
from whence do wo dcrlvo this Idea of one
day's rest In seven 7 Primarily, from tho
Creation itself. After the six treolosl
cat epochs of creative energy culminating
n the Adam of our race, enmo tho Sab
bath rest tho first lesion tausht to man
n pristine innocenco; this great law was
tnoro strenuously enforced from tho foun
dation of tho Hebrew Theocracy: and
finally, by tho Christian church at Its first
organization, changed to tho first from the
seventh day of the week, has been perpet
uated to this hour by the united voice oi
Christendom. I would .remark that whilst
the observance itself is eminently condu-
rlvo to physical health, that tbe Juwish
Sabbath for reasons I cannot now enter
upon was surrounded by sovorelaws tho
shall not meeting tho transgressor at every
step, tbo Christian law mcs to thu height
of human enthusiasm the (halt love.
This love rises In its first step at onobntind
o tho commemoration of the resurrec
tion of tho Snvior on this tlrrt day. It
overflows nnd embraces every man not
only at this, but at every other point, un.
til reaching tho climax of enthusiasm, It
is forced In very agony of love to re-lter-
ato "TUOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR
ah thtselv. ' The common law respects
this cnthuinm, and to a certain extent
is In harmony with it, In securing to tho
laborer and artizan tho inalienable right
of ono day in seven for rest and worship.
" Yea, child of auflering, ihnn mayet beaure.
lie who oruaineu me r-aonain imei ir.e poor."
Almost overy saloon keeper will confess
that the Sabbath Is his most gainful day.
Many of the tnloons In this city are crowd
ed with youth, gambling, drinking, play
ing cards, and imbruting themselves to
thu ruin of soul and body, to tho grief of
their friends. If the sense of moral right
has no influence with tho saloon keeper
if the consciences of young men and min
ors aro becoming insensible to the rever
ence due to tho Great God " in whom they
live and move and bave their be
ing," then I call upon Mayor Lansdcn,
who, I bcliove, only waits for public ex
pression, to do his duty and enforce tho
law, If it should take a special constable
to every saloon the wholo of every Sab.
bath. Is it not a shame that it has been
left to a layman, through the noblo inde
pendence of The Bulletin, to be tbe
first to attack this crying sin 7
With tbe editor's permission, I purpose
in to-morrow's issue to appeal to the saloon
keepers themselves. SEnviTUs.
