The Interest In tho early closing move
ment caused by Tun Clime's editorial 01V
tlio subject yesterday has becomo wide
spread. TiinUiuTio to-day has obtained
the views of u number of prominent busi
ness men in regard to the project of olov
tng their stores on Saturday afternoon. at
lo clock. While the business men with
out exception favored giving their em
ployes fewer hours of labor, yet the gin
oiol opinion seemed to be that the propo
sition was impracticable.
Mr. C. Haunt heartily endorses any
scheme for the comfort of his clerks,, w
prcinlly the females, who, ho savs, If are a
very hard time of it. Designate nny d.ir
in the week nnd he will be one of tlie first
lo endorse it.
Mr. I.niisburgh snld: "Name some other
day. Say Wednesday or Friday -mid I
will be one of the first lo accede to it."
W. M. Sinister closes tho year round nt
0 o'clock. His employes arc all male. Ho
docs not approve of the plan ns he does
not think it would be conducted to har
mony. "'llio people thnt advocato such a
scheme for our city argue from wrong
premises," snld Woodwind ,fc Loth'rop of
the lloston Dry Goods House. Ther did
not think the scheme would prove a suc
cess, as complaints would bo mndo from
customers. "We would bu only too glad
to acquiesce with the other nieichants in
closing early," snld they, "as wo would
enjoy ft as much as the clerks."
"1 close business nil the venr around at
(I o'clock," said Ilicliard H. Taylor, "but
nm perfectly willing to close' earlier In
July nnd August If tho other merchants
will follow my example. As to closing a
half day on Sntuiday, it would bo impos
sible for me, ns my huge laundry trade
would not permit it."
W. S. 'J eel, the merchant tailor 'on
Pennsylvania avenue, does not favor the
scheme. "I think it absurd," said lie, "to
go into a thing of this sort." He closes
the year mound nt 7 o'clock.
"The lot of my clerks Is not nn un
happy one," said Mr. Schall'er of the
firm of Harris it Scbafler, jawclloM,
"They have nbotit ns easy a time as
could be expected. As to the schemo I
don't think It will amount to much, ns
there is u a largo number or merchants
that could not be won over."
"My elorkshavc as easy, If not an easier
lime than the Department clerk," said II.
Seuikcu. He closes at II o'clock the year
round and gives his clerks' 11 vacation
dining the summer with pay. He is will
ing to accede to this schemo providing
thnt oilier prominent Jewelers will do the
same. He prefers to designate Saturday.
Tlio firm of Simpson & Guy were per
fectly willing to close if concentrated
octlon could bo secured. It mndo no par
ticular difference to them what day or
hour was adopted.
11. 0. Towles was very enthusiastic
when tlio subject wns mentioned, llu
w as willing to give the clerks u holiday
that would not interfere with ills business.
Mr. Towles seemed to think that Friday
at 1 o'clock would bo tho proper time. ,
Mr. llrentano said that he wished to do
as the other merchants did, but ho was
obliged to keep open for n while. How
ever, he thought that It was a matter in
which the public was concerned, and was
willing to yield to nnv popular demand.
