TI1K "SrNDAV Ml).
s much us m have talked for
harmony and good will in this town,
it seems tlmt something is always
ready to occur to cause discord. Tin1
),iti-,t trouble is the "Sunday liil."
and with nil courtesy, it is tin1 very
v. r-t kimi of foolishness and can re
s ilt onl in injury, and that quickly.
We liiivi- traveled over moiv tlian
Iik) mile., ol tlic I'liiled States, and
we was never in a city, anywhere in
our rounds, where the Sunday law
w,is so strict tiiat a man eould not
Iim.v a piece of fruit, candy or chewing
g nil for his baby or a cigar for him
self. The nature and object or purpose of
a business should govern its Sunday
urivileges. 'I'hat is the onl v way you
cm draw the line. A grocery store
h is no right to stay open on Sunday
license it has candies and bananas,
neither should a bakery, butcher shop
or restaurant be allowed to put in a
i line ol groceries and sell on Sunday,
it a man can't separate his two lines
of goods, that's his business close
If a man wants to do a Sunday busi
ness force him to do it separated en
tirely from his general business.
There is no "renter wrong in selling
an apple, orange, banana, or a piece
ot tobacco or a cigar, or eandv, than
there is in selling ice cream, soda
water and rci'iil tunic. The exclusive I
ice ci earn parlor, icstavirant and
neus stand, yvhere general merchandise
is not handled, should be allowed to
sell their full lines, which includes
Iruits. candies, cigars, tobaccos, post
cards, papers, magazines, books, tab
els, envelopes, pencils, drugs and
dnijr sundries, photographic iiiiiK,
etc These tilings, when not kept in a
general stole, s lion Id be permitted to lie
sold, as a matter of accommodation
and convenience to tin
noods of this class an1
We hope that these remarks will
lead to a solution ol this problem, and
that the custom of the country, for the
ln'netit of Hayti as a city,
lowed to pievail.
We are not getting near the amount
ol advertising we ought to get in Hay
ti. and as a result Hayti is missing
lots of trade it ought to get.
We have tried to he good to the
Hayti meichants by c induing our
space as much as possible to home
merchants. We have solicited no ad
vertising from other towns, and have
declined several yearly contracts.
In the meantime our Hayti adver
tising has steadily grown less, and
some of the lueivhants have quit alto
gether. Now, as a matter of course wecoiild
load up on Sears A Roebuck. Spiegel,
May, Stern Co. and a lot of other ad
vertising, patent medicine stutl, etc.,
but it would be money to the people
of Hayti to support this paper, and
they ought to do it.
If Hayti cannot and will not support
a paper, the quicker that fact can bo
ascertained the better. We are bete
to serve the people and to do ourlovei
best for the town, but we must have a
The lirrit year is the hardest part in
the life of a neyvspapcrand all the busi
ness men in Hayti and C'arutlier.sville
yve have heard express an opinion .say
the town ought to donate the lirst
year's otlice rent, and Win. b,W of
the board of alderman s:is he is in
favor of this, but we neither ak or
expect a donation and would not ac
cept one, but a good ad for the town,
showing its location, would be money
We know it pays to advertise, and
if Hayti has a paper it certainly must
s.ipport it. These are facts.
Our merchants must learn to adver
tise, good and hard, and keep it up.
We regret to make remarks like
these, hut there is no use going behind
THE HKWAHD OF GAMBLING.
Again refering editorially to the
tradgedy of the other day, which ter
minated in the death of two men at the
gambling table, it is fortunate for the
good name of the town that the killing
occurred at a saw mill, out in the
woods, instead of in town.
This killing ought to put an end to
gamblers holding out at Hayti, and
if our city authorities will take hold
' of the mutter as it stands, Hayti is
, Whatever of good may be said of
Trot .Morris, the fact that he was a
rambler overshadowed it all, and we
must say that a man of his class is
the most dangerous tiling that could
Ite allowed to associate with idle
young men. No doubt the pistol hall
of Charlie Klliston, when it put out
the lite of Trot .Morris, was dealing
retribution lor the snares ami the pit
falls that had been laid along voting
Ol the virtues of .Mm Dillingham,
we can sa, nothing better. Of course
.liiu had his good qualities and was
harmless in many ways, but when the
violators of the law wanted a friend
.Mm was true and tried, and he could
.ruble the youth of our town safely
along wa s that are dark, and down,
Our remarks are not meant to cast
reflections upon the deaii. nor to
wound the feelings of their relatives
and friends. We are only drawing
a lesson from the lives of these men,
and our statement, can neither be
disputed or denied.
Young KIliMon, who did the shoot
ing, had not been many years on the
downward course, and from what we
learn, his dowfall must have been due
j at first to .some unthoughtcil act, and
I later by disease and drugs, anil there
t i.!,tt lit. Ikiit tttrlt, fll.lll.t tlmt 'it tlut
time of tiie act he was mentally un
balanced, and if caught will never he
punished for the deed.
A newspaper must stand for some
thing. It is the purpose of the Herald
to stand for the best inteiests of Hay
ti, and in doing this we must neces
sarily oppose some people. There
are alwavs two elements of people in
,.v,.rJ ,mvili im(j j,t.ni.,.all. two sides
to ever, question. People do not all
see and believe alike, and a whole lot
of them will do yvrong and persist in
doing yvrong when they know it. It is
tins class that are forever trying to
block the wa, of the newspaper. The
do not want to be told of their mis
deeds and do not want the eyes of the
public turned to them. These are the
people who always go around with
ther backs up, cussing tile editor, .hist
. listen to them on the streets, on the
I corners and everywhere- just listen to
I them cuss the editor, and mark it down
! in your little hook that the man who
does this either knows or has been
i told that a certain remark in the pa
per just tit their case and it did. 'I'D"
editor generally hits the mark, and
it makes a sore place. (Jood, honest,
i honorable, fairmiudcd people do not
, gut mad at the editor tor demanding
1 right, justice ami fairness to till men,
, een if they are disposed to violate
tiie rules of right now anil then. It is
the naturally mean, scllisli, narrow,
liu. contracted man who howls when
he can't havu his way, and a neyvspa
per that cannot make this class get
upon their hind legs and roar is worth
but little to the country.
Our new city eouneil yyill huve to he
careful in lolhyvii.f,r out the old or
dinances, to avoid mistakes. The.se
old ordinances arc very defective and
conllicting, mid the need of neiv ordin
ances is keenly felt. It will be re
membered that we published a list of
elective unices. We did this to keep
down trouble and confusion. Hut
these ollices yyere not voted on, being
, considered uppomtive. Now, the
hoard is trying to remove the city at
torney, and at the same time is think
ing of appointing a street commission
er, when under the ordinances these of-
lices are elective. An appointive or
dinance was passed and approved
April 11, liW.'i, but an elective ordin
andi), repealing the former ordinance,
yvas passed on Aapil 11 and approved
on April 13, li)t).'l. We believe in the
elective franchise in the vote of the
people and we believe an election
should be ordered, that the people
may choose their servants.
After viewing the two gambler
corpses the other day, and reading
our brief write up, a gosling gambler
was heard to remark that if he was
a certain one of the. surviving partici
pant we would have to "take back"
what wo said. If that isn't cheek! A
den of gamblers starting in to ex
terminate one another.Jtwo at a sitting,
and the home paper not allowed the
courtesy to write up the affair. My!
