Tbe vigorous utterances of Senator Hill on the
idle question are In contrast with the silence
of bin Republican adversary Thomas C PlatU
When Mr Ilatt was asked yesterday for an ex

tered by Ire Ilent Roosevelt the Republican
chieftaIn eald
lies ve ns ou dont expect me t talk on that
subject do you 1
So Mr Plait would not utter a word but her
jIM told his friends privately that President
r Roosevelt course has already estranged thou
sands of voters In Now York city from the Re
publican ticket
l Ir lilent hard Lauterbach of the Repub
lican County Committee also refused t utter a
word He Is I round by the oOlce he holds not to
peak un tills subject he o ayo and 0 neither I
the Republican chieftain of tho State nor the I
Republican President of tbe County Committee
could be cit to utter a word on this most en
trussing subject fluE SUN reporter requested
the views of other Republicans but moat of
them wished to be excused Thus all that ex
Police C cinmlsiloner and exCollector of the
Port Joel U Krlmrdt would say was
All laws should bo enforced
Gen James S Clnrkson of Iowa exChairman
of tbe Republican atonal Committee was an
exception among men of his party In this r
He said

Mr Roomvelt Is with unusual zeal enforcing
t law In this city which at least eighty or ninety
percent of the people are opposed t and which
has for a number of years been more or less a
dead letter I refer to the Excite law and the
Sunday closing of saloons Mr Roosevelt found
these laws upon the statute books and be Is try
ing t enforce them with his usual energy and
vigor I do not know what tho people up tho
SIMs think about tho Sunday closing question
1 tat I venture to say that some clgbty per
f cent of the people hero are against Its
strict enforcement I am stopping down
at Long Branch and every day I come
to the city on the bat On thee trips
I meet many young men especially those who
have parents of foreign birth and they com
plain loudly because they are deprived of their
beer on Sunday I have often heard them say
they regret that they voted the Republican
I ticket last fall Not a few stated that their
fathers urged them not t vote the Republican
ticket because the Republicans If successful
would revive and put In force all of the Puri
tanical laws They say that they have been in
the habit of drinking beer seven days In the
week and now they have t take water on Sun
day The Hon William F FSheehap ex Lieutenant I
Governor tbo State said that his sentiments
Were voiced by Senator Hill
ExMayor Thomas F Ollroy said I believe
that them should be certain hours
tht b certin bour on Sunday
when beer should b sold to the poor man
There Is a law on the statute books against
wearing on bunday Whv doesnt President

Corporation Counsel Francis M Scott said
I have seen the Sunday liquor law work In
London and I think that something of the sort
would do for New York city Such a law would
be favored by me Let the liquor places ho
open for certain hours on Sunday and then en
force the prohibition against sales during tho
other hours with absolute rigidity hero
should bo reasonable restrictions on Sunday
selling but they should 0 such a the nubIle
generally eu force would respect Then they could b
I do not suppose that tho Legislature could
b got t pass a general Sunday liquor law ap
plicable to the entire State here are commu
nities where there Is no demand for Sunday
opnlnl but such communities should not at
tempt to force their views upon other commu
nities who demald theirSunduy beer I hellcvo
this question might ver properly bo relegated
by the Legislature to certain communities
which require Sunday opening for them to deal
with I should favor though thin placing of
certain general restrictions on Sunday selling
ray for instance Hint no liquor bo permitted to
bo sold until after Ii nr1111rlrer I J
should Ira made In deference t the church feel
ing Then there should be no unnecessary
flaunting of the traflc In tho face of arr
people Ihe law might require that shades
should be kept up at the windows or ev < n that
front doors of saloons should not bo opened
When ho
lsen Seth Low was Major of Brooklyn
knew that Honor was being sold on Sunday in
violation of the law but It was done quietly and
by way of side door entrances He said to lute
that he believed that possibly the best solution
of the dlftlculty wonld be to require Sundmty sell
Ing to bo conducted with the front doors of
saloons closed
County Clerk Henry n Purroy Is a thorough
believer in home rule which means local option
In the matter of excise
In all maters properly belonging to the
local Government said he the will of a
majority of the citizens < of a locality affected
should always prevail In my opinion the pres
ent ExcIse law I and tlio harsh measures resorted
to bv the police for three Sundays In un unsuc
cessful effort enforce It are equally repugnant
to a majorlt of New Vorxs citizen The last
Legislature ailed in its duty In not making an
honest effort to amend the present illiberal Ex
clxelavv For one I would like to see the voters
choose the olej Legislature with an especial
view to this neglected work If there Is I miny
doubt as to the sentiment of the people
on this sublect let us have un expris
sion of that sentiment at the polls
All laws should be evenly enforced but our
present nonpartisan rulers lire lot dealing out
equal justice Tuiy discriminate to please
nbld fanatics and neglect serious public duties
Has the wiping out of pocket picking and the
arrest and detention of housebreakers suddenly
become less Important to the public welfare
than the prevention of Sunday beer drinking
I trust not yet the public prints contain fre
quent references to an Increaseof crimes against
person and property while these reformers are
devoting their energies to the harsh and un
equal enforcement of an obnoxious Kxclse law
Why doesnt reform work tho same noy lu

know that a man never succeeds in politics w ho
Is I not ready to express hImelf on such political
subjects but I really have nothing to say
because I have given no thought to the matter
I will say though that Im a firm believer In
the maxim that tho best way to secure the re

William F Grote arid Ashcmbl man Jacob

where they get their one little treat of the day
out of the growler Im willing to keep my

though Im with Seth Low on that point I
think everybody ought to be made to to to the

most perfect organlution for efficiency I
against crime and lawlessness of ever
description admits that the enforcement I
of the present law as to Sunday closing Is an im

rite question to my mind said Acting Dis
trict Attorney vcrnon M Davl < should b
settled by allowing tho people In each city to
regulate tho law themselves In other words
the best law possible should b passed by the
Legislature and then sent referendum to the
locality affected The Prohibitionists of the
country districts should not Interfere with tho
rights of tho citIzens of Now York I see no
should formulate
reason why country legislators fol1
late our Inns any more than they should our
corporation ordinances
Aiwlstant District Attorney John F Mcintyre
had tills to say I am in favor of tho Legisla
ture enacting n law permitting saloons to keep
open on Sundays after church hours If It I Is
found that thero is n I demand from the majority
of our citizens for such I luw 1 do not meal
by this that the saloons should b open as they
are every day In the week but In a mnnner
that would enable every person who wants to

The strict enforcement of the Excise law on
the last few Sundays has provoked nowhere a
more earnest discussion of the Sunday opening
question than among church people The
opinions expressed differ widely While the
saloon men aro agitating for a more liberal law
strict church people are congratulating them
selves that the statute has been proved to b
equal to their beat hopes liberal church people
are discussing tbe prospect of securing n moro
equable law now that It Is seen that any law
can be enforced and the conservatives are re
fraining from expressing opinions So much
appeared In conversations which SUN reporters
had with preacher and laymen and women of
tho churches last week
I feel that It I Is unfortunate that the subject
Is being agitated In this way just now when the
pastors are away from their people and man
of the church people mire away too said the
Rev W F Anderson of the Washington Square
Methodist Kplscopal Church I think that
every moral teacher should make It his duty at
such a time to further the cause of morality and
good order by speaking out In favor of the
course Police Commissioner Roosevelt hus
taken regarding tho Sunday Excise law I
think he Is I entitled to the highest commenda
tion for demonstrating that the law can bo en
forced and for his determination to have
It enforced I believe In cloning every
saloon nil day Sunday and topping
the sale of liquor on thnt day absolutely and I
think the good people of the city should mike
It their business to let Mr Roosevelt know hat
he has their cordial support I hope he will
continue the work W suppose he will and I
should expect to see It made the subject of dis
courses In all the pulpits throughout the city In
the all the moro no If the liquor men under
take tn mulii the stringency of his measures
the excuse for reeking to get n law such as they
want The Commissioners action has tbrowit
the responsibility for the maintenance of the
present law onto the church s or the antiliquor
people and they understand 1 I although they
lay not be wholly awake to the fact
I believe canvass of the congregation of
my church would not show one member In
favor of modlflng the Inw or permitting the
saloons to open on Sunda No sober person
will deny that they are a great cause of evil
ansI why any ono should urge that privileges
should be granted to them that are not granted
to dry goods tores 1 cannot sec the cry that
tho Mior man should have an opportunity to
buy his beer on hiiinlay seems to me a flimsy
pretext for ho rould bus It nn Saturday it
tirtntui Is I cheaper to buy It In bottles or

Tho Rev A W Halscy of titus old Spring
Street Inabjlerian Church which for eighty
years has I mtnlkterttd to the souls of Urecnwlch
Village takes I radically dimrent view of the
Sunday liquor question lie Is opposed to sa
loons and 1 the use of liquor at nil jet he Is In
favor of I Ian that will enable tbo ale of beer
and the lighter alcoholic beverages under rO
ll rlctlcns daring certain hours on Bundarr
Mr Ualae1 has been In many cities and his
work In the Spring street church has made him
familiar with n neighborhood where the liquor
traffic Is of Importance Ills observations have
convinced him that the place of liquor In the
personal and household economy Is I something
that has got to b thought over carefully by a
minister who seeks to retain Influence over a
cosmopolitan community
5 1 U ngnlnst the saloons together I he said
but 1 recognize that It Is a human appetite wo
are fighting and that ten thousand laws would
not stop the liquor < traffic and I nm In favor of 1
law that will permit the pale of tho lighter
liquors on certain hours on I4unslnys I should
say that 1 couple of hours would be enough and
my Idea would be to sell only for homo use tho
liquor not to be drunk on the premlcs any more
than meat would be eaten at 1 butchers shop I
want to do away with tho saloon a I
loungluc place Many a tau goes to I saloon
on Sunday and spends all his wages there
because ho can sit around vvhllctf he could only
get beer to tako away ho would not do himself
much To bo could take
so mich harm sure men coul Ilko
beer home or to one anothers rooms nnd there
get drunk but noIse or quarrels would brine
the police or the neighbors would complain If
there was disorder and that sort of thing would
soon play out There might bo some drunken
ness on Saturday nights for 1 while too but
matters would gradually shape themselves and
dry Sundays meaning closed saloons on Sun
days would be better for all
But In I cosmopolitan community like New
York people have got to think of their neighbors
and It cannot be said to be fair to deprive one
man of what he regards as necessary because
another man thjnks that to cell liquor Is wrong
while the necessaries or luxuries of the other
man are on stile nt every hand We allow
candy nnd tobacco t be sold yet we forbid the
vale of beer which meal to 1 great many peo
ple what tobacco or candy means to others or
what tea or coffee means to the average native
citizen of this cruntry I have for Instance In
my congregation a German an excellent man
who thought of taking his family away because
of the fight on tho Sunday saloons that the
church was making He and his family re
garded their beer a being an much of a neces i
sary and regular part of their dally meal
as we do milk These peoplo regard our I
laws a discriminating I against them and
the liquor dealers who are engaged In a
legalized business consider the laws as discrim
inating against them Moro than all this there i
Is I very large contingent of the population I
one knows how many among tho nondrinkers
who also believe that the laws discriminate
against tho liquor dealers merchants like
others and against classes or masses of their
own fellow citizens iuch peoplo believe that
this discrimination Is unfair and unjust and
ought not to be continued Thcrcforo the wide
spread feeling arose that I Is just as well If the
laws are not enforced I think If a law doing
away with what is regarded as unjust dtcrtm
Inatlon were passed tho people would b ready
to Insist on the strict enforcement of rigid laws
governing tho truffle It Is I proper that the laws
should discriminate against the liquor dealers
for the community takes 1 rlskyln permitting
them to conduct their business but the dis
crimination should not b such that the com
munity would regard It as unjust The city
licenses the liquor dealers charging them for
the license because tho hi Bird < l to tbe peace
of the community that their business entails
but as they are licensed they havo some rights
They see that tobacco stores are allowed to keep
open nnd that several other articles are allowed
to b sold which are not reckoned so much as
necessaries as their goods are to many peo
ple and they denounce the laws and trample
on them They have done this and run things
largely to sqlt themselves for to long lat we
have been practically at their mercy They
have defied us Thnt Is all wrong I want to
see laws passed tbnt will do away with the feel
Ing tbnt the liquor dealers nre not fairly treated
and then I want stringent lans controlling their
business laws backed up by the sober senso of
the people laws that the peoplo wIll Insist upon
having enforced a the present law Is I being en
forced now
I have suggested that the saloons be al
lowest to keep open for two hours on Sunday
After that the curtains should go up the pro
prietor should be compelled to illuminate the
places at night and the police should have the
right of entry without warrant wherever the
laws mIre not complied with That Is practically
the law In England I do not believe the police
should have to do this underhand work that
they aro required to do now Tho other Sun
day a detective had to disguise himself a a
longshoreman and stumble Into a saloon after
dark I think that such work should be re
quired only In the direct extremity
I believe such n law could b passed In a
rural Legislature when time members had been
made to see that a large part of the community
who wink at nonenforcement of theI present
law do so because they think tho luw makes un
just discriminations I do not believe that the
people of this city wanfr to eee New York like
Chicago ad I dont think they want to see
everything wldo open I believe they vould
compel tho enforcement of a strict law after the
Inequalities of the preseat one were done away
Ono of the greatest evils I have to complain
about under the present law Is tho practice of
selling liquor to minors One Sunda evening
my wife aw a little girl clad In the sumo dress
in which she attended bundny school como out
of 1 saloon with a pitcher of beer which she
took homo for herself und her mother The
childs father was then In n consumptives bed
In a hospital where wo had sent him nnd where
vvo were providing for his maintenance A
friend told moot going Into a saloon In Hurt
I Fon street nnd seeing there a little girl who
pasred n bottle over the bar and put clown ten
cents The 1 bartender took the money tilled the
bottle with whiskey smut put It dowi on thus har
1 lie girl look I drank u swig and put It I down
11111 I 5 ansI the bnitender then ill led tlm bottle
to Clue neck again put the cork in handed the
t <
bottle to the child and she went out My ac
quaintance nsked < the bartender If that was the
usual way of doing biittlmss and the reply was
said that If he did
yes The barkeeper 51hl 111 not
allow the child her drink eho would go else
where the next time site vvns tent for liquor
The swig was her commission I want I law
that will pri vent that sort of thing We have
n good deal tocontf nil with lieiiaboutH m tOo

men out from 1 oclock bunday inornlnu until
11 oclock Sunday night uncovering this Illegal
bimlniBs for us and tejortlng violations to the

I believe this city might b the best gov
erned city In the world If every citizen vvould do
hula duty In ulidruvorlng to get good laws and
see that they were enforced I do lot preach on
this subject bceiiuse 1 do lot earn such mater

that organization In printing and circulating
the Scriptures during the past year has just
been published The society has distributed more
volumes In China during the year than In any
preceding year since It began Its operations
there In Japan too the Bible Committee has
been able to accomplish a great deal of
work among tile soldiers of the Japanese
army More than 1600000 lilblcs Testaments
and Integral portions of the Bible were printed
by the society within the year and over 1000
000 of them were printed on the presses In the
Bible House and more than 500000 were
printed In foreign lands Through purchases
additional volumes the total number printed
and procured by the society amounted to 1018
074 copies Of these 047103 volumes wcro
issued from the Bible House and 034025 in
foreign lands Of the volumes Issued from the
Bible House 101100 copies were sent to foreign
lands and are not counted among the Issues In
foreign countries
Of the issues of 147103 volumes from the
Bible House 845007 have been for the home

ceipts the society was compelled to restrict Its
colportage work to a considerable extent Only
twent < even colporteurs have been employed
for the whole or a part of the year in twelve
States and two Territories The colporteurs
visited 71071 families and found lLUi4 with

A Garrison lrnpon for Alnskn Troopt
In Itlol DullNew Regulations
WASHINGTON July 11There Is a revival
just now of the proposition to station n garrison
In Alaska len bchollcld in the course of his
prolonged summer tour nt the West limes beau
ns far as that Territory nnd the people arena
doubt encouraged to believe that they may have
a fort erected there and garrisoned
When Russian America was bought by the
Government In 18U7 troops were promptly
sent there They arrived in tOo latter part of
that year and that garrison If memory servos
was not withdrawn until June 1077 since
which time It has never been replaced The ex
perience of these years showed that thero was
little for the army to do and Indeed little that
It could do There was need of better civil gov
ernment and of an adequate judicial system
with marshals and other officers to enforce time
law But so far ns the military power was con
cerned there were few occasions for exercise
There wore no good roads In Alaska and the
lack of roads Is one of the marked features
of the Territory today The usual metlics1cb
of getting about from settlejnent to settle
ment along the const and among its Islands 7
was by vessel suggesting a naval force and the > ft
Ilnta linn therefore beeil stationed for years at i
Sitkn and bus represented tha authority of the
Government In addition revenue cutters ate f
every year despatched to Alaskan waters HlV i Vi
therefore doubtful whether with the present i 1111 fl
small size of the army there will boa force de
tached to garrison Alaska Certainly the mere
fact that the Lluutennntcicutrnl Included
Alaska lu his Itinerary counts for nothing It Is
not iinliki1 that the day will como w hi n with
the growth of Alaka n garrison may be sOt
tlnned at Mmie post designed to bo tim nucleus
of u defem for the territory Hut for tho pres
ent reliance will perhaps continue to be placed
on the possibility of despatching troops north
irom Vancouver Barracks should the necessity
for them arise as it never has yet
