Rock Island, June 18. Editor Ar
gus: If there should be a suppression
of Sunday ball playing it may now be
assed, will this action do the cause of
Christianity and good? Notwithstand
ing the fact that many churches believe
and teach that it is proper to spend the
Sabbath day by devotional exercises in
the forenoon and evening and the after
noon in harmless pleasure, a few may
hold that you must worship God our way.
It is all right to violate the law by run
ning ferry boats, 6treet cars, drug stores,
butcher shops, barber shops, etc., be
cause many of those interested pecuniar
ily in those enterprises are Christians of
our type, and who do tnese things cover
the multitude of our sins by meeting with
others in Harper's theatre and publicly
announcing that we are umpires on re
ligion. Had that meeting (or any other)
to wait to be opened by the man without
sin, it would never have been held.
Working men in the three cities Dav
enport, Rock Island and Molina are re
quired by necessity to t ill nine, ten and
eleven hours a day, six days in the week.
Sunday is their day of rest, and th?y like
to spend it as they please. They have
no disposition to annoy anyone. Many
of them go to their churches in the fore
noon, and in the afternoon stroll about
The better class are lively and cheerful,
at:d, if some innocent amusement is fur
nished them, they go to it ami enjov
themselves. If they have no pUce to go
many of them naturally drop into the sa
loons. There they meet others and tike
a drink, then another treats, and so on,
until a habit is formed in time, that, to
draw it mildly, dwarfs their future.
The day of the first Sunday base ball
game the remark was made,
' A gteit many wives and sisters art
"Why?" was asked.
"Because our husbands and brothers
came home sober." They hail been to
the ball game.
Posted up at various places about the
seats at the ball park are notices some
thing like this: "Pieass Make no noise
during Sunday games to disturb the peace
of the neighborhood. Do not shout."
These notices show the disposition of the
boys who have charge of the base ba'l
business. They do not desire to annoy
anyone, anl it is a question whether anv
one is annoyed who does not seek ii.
There may be occasionally a little cheer
ing, but almost instantly there is a gen
eral suppressed hush, wh'ch quiets it
:own. But even if there should be a lit
tie checrintr occasionally, is that a sin?
An old Methodist hymu says:
"I ito bellerfl without u doah
That Ctiri-tianc have a rii;ht to sliont."
How many of the people at ihese Sud
day games are christians. Perhaps more
charitable towards others than snm" who
took part in the recent meeting, anil po:
sibly just as conscientious in essentials,
just as honest in their methods and just
as kind to the poor, as those gentlemen.
We have all hoped that the city of R ick
Island was on a business boom. Every
body was happy and all were pulling neck
and neck to help evtry enterprise along.
Manv of the literal-minded people
thought it would be well to encourage the
organization of a base ball club. No
body clnims that it is a religious organiz i
tion, but we do cliim that base ball is an
innocent amusement. All live cities
now-a days have such organization?.
People are attracted here by ihe gain- s;
they patronize our hotels, resta-irants
and business houses. Travtling men
make a special effort to stop here, they
transact their business and then have
some fun. They go away and tain about
the place, how lively it is, and how it is
b oming, but now a few have
thrown a bombshell in our midst. Th se
sime liberal people who have contributed
to organize the base ball club, also con
tribute to the churches, not for gain, but
to lend a helping hand to everything
necessary to build up a city. Is it policy
therefore to create dissentions among us
and engender ugly feeling? Will it do
the cause of Christianity any good?
Where turmoil, strife and unhappinesi
exist, there the devil will have his har
vest. FitEE Thought

Young Democracy Effects a Perma
An KntlmMaMIr Meeting at Turner
Hall l.n-- iKht anil Its Kefinlt
OffleerN Kleett 1 ami Ward
There was a large and enthusiastic
meeting of the y nng democracy of the
city at Turner hall lat night for tho pur
pose of permanently organizing a young
men's democratic club. Two meeting
had been previously held, at both of whi h
much interest was manifested and the
one last night fully demonstrated a grows
ing sentiment in favor of a permanent
organization of this kind. The firstjin or
der was the report of the committee ap
pointed at the previous meeting on per
manent organisation, after which the
election of officers was taken up. Offi
cers were elected as follows:
President h. C Blending,
Vice-President J. F. Diudinger.
Recording Secretary G;is Stengel, Jr.
Corresoonding Secretary F. J. Staas
Treasurer M. B. Frcshmm.
It was thought that an additional vice
president in each ward would be a benefit
to the organization, and the following
were selected from their respective wares:
First ward, Fiank RUble; Sjsoad,
James S. Wivill; Tnird. Louis
Ohlweiier; Fourth. Ben L iraont; fifth, J.
E Reidy ; Sixth. Pete r Prey ; Seventh. Rob
ert Wagner. In order to promote the
growth of the organization in the differ
ent wards it was decided to appoint
one in each ward to werk in conjunction
with the vice-president in f.irtherint: the
ends of the club, J.ihn Corcoran, Will
Kinner. Dan Corhen, Albert Huesing.
Joseph Sherer, Herman De'jens and
Joseph Lerch being ch isen to act as
such from the different wards in the
order named. The five executive offi
cers of the club were then appointed a
committee to report rules and suggest
a name for the club at its next meeting,
