In reply to a story that has sained
wide circulation to the effect that Rev.
William A. Sunday flow not want to
go to Pooria unless the Peoria Star
will agree not to fight him, the Star
announces editorially that it is really
quite religiously inclined. It very kind
ly offers to help the baseball evangelist
by telling him what to do and what
After telling: of the report that the
Star is opposed to Sunday, the editor
ial in the paper says:
"This is not quit true, as a matter
of fact. We have not been fighting
Billy, but on the contrary have earn
estly exhorted him to modify his brand
of salvation cut out some of the ob
jectionable features and bring fortli
works meet for repentance.
Will Supply CnnrililalrM.
"In fact, we have prepared a list of
prominent pecplo who are at present
affiliated with some of the orthodox
churches, but who need conversion,
and we have suggested that Billy com
mence on these, assuring him that the
Star would add its prayers to his ef
forts to pluck these brands from th.
burning and to remove these snags
from the river Jordan, so as to make
plain sailing for the small fisher craft
that want to angle in gospel waters.
The idea that the Star, which is al
ways for the uplift, should oppose any
movement looking towards the ameli
oration of the public is ridiculous. Did
we not stand up manfully for Father
O'Reilly? Are we not now the main
bulwark of Bishop Dunne? Is not Fath
er Cadmus our right-hand bower in
the light with the water company?
Will Write Jifw Praycm, Aluo.
Who chips in more faithfully to the
support of tho Salvation Army than
we? Nor do we turn a cold ear to the
Free Methodists, to the Holy Rollers,
to the believers in the Flying Scroll.
In fact, we have exerted no small ef
forts in purging the Amish church of
its troubles, putting a ring in the nose
nf Rider Witziz. The idea, therefore.
that wo should be opposed to Billy.
Sunday and his great revival is simpiy
absurd. Lot Billy come, and we will
write out a lot of new prayers for
him. Those that he has been offering
up of late are a little stale, and we
fear that the recording angel lets them
go no farther than the roof of the
