Fursaant to the published call and also
the announcement made in the city
churches yesterday morning, about 700
people assembled at Harper's theatre last
evening t consider the question ot Sab
bath desecration. All ot the Protestant
and Evar gelical churches dispensed with
their evening services, and their congre
gations joined in the union meeting.
The nn-eting fas called to order by A.
M. Blrkcsley and William Jackson was
elected cliaii man and Joshua IlasBelquist,
secretary. After prayer by Rev. J. H.
Kerr and music by a quartette, President
Jackson stated the object of the meeting,
which he said was to take some action in
regard tf the suppression of wanton des
ecration of the Sabbath day.
He thrn introduced Dr. Bartholomew
of Aug ls'ana College who spoke in
vebemei t terms and characterized the
ball gan.es as bold, defiant and aggressive
dit-regar J of law. It was, he said a place
of abon-.ination, dissipation ana corrup
tion, degrading and demoralizing to soci
ety and compared the scenes on a ball
eld to those of the ancient bull fight and
eenes 01 carnace enacted rv uoman
1 ml inters in the bloody arena. It inter
fered. 1 e said with the street car service
and wan a source of great annoyance to
the peace and quiet of the neighborhood
in wh'ch these wild scenes were enacted.
and thought it the duty of the mayor of
the citv to do something toward its
Rev.W. G. Shuev. pastor of Grace
jUtherin church, was the next speaker.
It was in his neighborhood, he said, that
this lamentable desecration of the Sab
bath occurred and that it was demoraliz
ing on the community in general. He
spoke of the proper observance of the
Sabbath day as one of the foundations pf
the republic, and looked at it mainly
from a reliqioas point of view, and
closed his rtmarks with the hope that all
would unite ia a determined effort to put
nn.-n what he termed the spirit of law
essnew to the end that it might lend
better itfluence to the whole community
Some vocal music followed.
Rev. J.H. Kerr, of the Central Trcs
hvtr nn church, came next, lie aaiu
that the persons who were conductm
hose Sunday ball games were overriding
the law and that they knew it. - .ven
now." said the speaker, "they show
siens of wincing," wben there is talk of
interfering with them. He then said
that no one evpr made any money by
playin" Sunday ball, and cited as proof
an article by Harry Wright, the veteran
ball plavcr that lately ap-
pearrd in The Clipper. As for himself
he w.,8 a lover of the national game, oui
he wauld not lend any aid to a club that
play :d on Sum! ay and he exhorted those
present to do the same. He wts also in
favor of closing the saloons and stores of
11 hinds on the Sabbath day and would
lend his aid in that direction.
R. y. H. C. Marshall also spoke, but he
said he came as a citizen ana noi
minister of the Gospel. He had always
beet proud of this city as a law abiding
community and he as a citizen wished to
see the law enforced and thought the
pub ic at large should Btand by the insti
tution of learning at the doors of which

said that it was no doubt a source of

cinity, and that it was an insult to the in
stitution located in that part or the cuy

ot the country to train them m the ways

thought that so much talking on tLe sub
ject was unnecessary and asked Mr. Jack
pon if there was an existing law that
could be enforced to preyent it. Upon
receivine an ifflrmatiye reply Mr. Robin

Resolved, First, that we, the citizens

Resolved, Spcond, that kc disapprove
and condemn all violation of the Sunday

whether it be by keeping open stores or
saloons or the playing of base ball or
other games upon the Sabbath day.
Resolved, Third, that for the sake of
the good name of our city and th reputa

the moral and materia! interests of our
citizens that are imperiled and injured by
these oabbaih desecration?, and we ap

and law-abiding citiz.ns.
Resolved, Fourth, that we appeal to
all patriotic and good citizens for the

the enforcement of the Sunday law and a
quiet and orderly day of rest.
Resolvid, Fifth, that we call upon the
mayor i f this city to exercise the author
ity in him vested to instruct the city
marshal and police force to see that all
places of business, saloons, gambling
places and other resorts of vice, now run
ning in open violation of law, are closed
on the Sabbath day: also that they main
tain the peace and quiet of the community
by preventing the plaving of base ball
upon that day.

hoi ed a strong sentiment wouia go out
from the meeting against further disturb

Rev. T. W. Grafton, followed with a
few brief remarks in which he gave voice
to his disapproval of Sabbath breaking,
and was ready to do all in his power 10

Rev. U. E. Taylor came next and made
some more extended remarks, taking in

train brought to a standstill within a few
feet of the place where engineer Cypher
met hisdeath. By this time the passengers
had become curious as to what was the
matter, nnd all sorts of quest ious were
asked the trainmen. The engineer made
an excuse thnt some of the machinery was
loose, and in a few moments the train was
speeding on to her destination.
"What made you stop back there?" asked
Tinckney. "I heard your excuse, but I
have run too long on the road not to know
that your excuse is not the truth."
His question was answered by the en
gineer pointing ahead and saying excitedly:
"There! Look there! Don't you we it"
"Looking out of the cab window," said
Mr. Pinckney, "I saw about 300 yards
ahead of us the headlight of a locomo

for the lever.
"'Oh, it's nothing. Its what I saw

ahead of us can run it faster backward
than I can this one forward. Hare I seen
it before? Yes, twenty times. Every en
gineer on the road knows that engine, and
he's always watching for it when he gets
to the gorge.'
"The engine ahead of us was running si
lently, but the smoke was puffing from the
stack and the headlight threw out rays of
red, green and white light. It kept a short
distance ahead of us for several miles and
then for a moment we saw a figure on the
pilot. Then the engine rounded a curve
and we did not see it again. We ran by a
little station, and at the next, when the
operator warned us to keep well back from
a wild engine that was ahead, the engi
neer said nothing. He was not afraid of a
collision. Just to satisfy my own mind on
the matter I sent a telegram to the engine
wiper at Sprague asking him if Xo. S3 was
in. I received a reply stating that No. 33
had just come in and that her coal was ex
