Mr. Kolinsky has just received a letter from Governor George 11. Utter, of Rhode Island, who is a Seventh Day Baptist, commending him for his fight. Among other things Governor Utter writes to the Jewish legislator: “I am an ordinary Baptist in all particulars except that of the Sab bath, which we lielieve is on Saturday. It is my opinion that a Legislature of any slate should keep free from any action which will necessitate the violation of a citizen’s belief honestly held and which is not in conflict with public interest. Certainly Ohio should recognize the privileges of your co-religionists, and the placing of a primary election on Satur day would not be recognizing that priv ilege. I wish you success in your ef forts to secure some other day of the week for such election.” ALLEN J.
