So far the Methodists lead in protests
against the decision of the United States
court of appeals on Sunday opening. At
the meeting of ministers of that sect . in
this city Rev. Benson intimated that the
personal devil "squatted"' at the ear of Jus
tice Fuller and dictated his words. Rev.
McKean, secretary of the American "Sab
bath" union, said that the decision as ren
dered was unfair. "It is based on the as
sumption that the government bad no
financial interest at stake. This was mere
ly a subterfuge for the benefit of the Sun
day openers' cause. There was- no refer
ence to the points raised in the hearing be
fore the lowpr court." The decision was
also denounced at the meetings of the
Congregational and Raptist preachers.
At OniahA the Methodists resolved not
to attend the fair and to dissuade all oth
ers from attending; alao that tire Method
ist exhibit stum Id be withdrawn. The
proposition of Bishop Merritt, at Chicago,
that tlie bishops iswue an exhortation to
members of the church to boycott the fair,
was endorsed. New York city Methodist
resolutions declared Sunday opening an
evidence of commercial dishonor and bad
faith, and called upim the commission ap
pointed by the general conference to take
