FETDAT, MAECH 1, 1803 Editorial Ink Drops. AL0SO THE TRAIL OF DUTY. Without any desire for self-adulation It may be truthfully said that no recent utterance In the columns of The Bee hat met with more hearty approval than the editorial In last week' Issue on the Gray's Plain question. Without rnlnclng matters it expressed the sentiment, we believe, of all lovers of Justice, who have warmly sympathiz ed with the Gray's Tlaln people In their battle for the right. And at this juncture we say we pur pose to continue on the trail of duty, whether In the consideration of this or any question which affects the people's Interests. It matters not whether : "The butcher, The baker. Or the candle-stick maker," Take offense. It Is our duty to treat such questions fearlessly. With malice toward none we purpose to continue along the trail of duty, be lieving that Almighty God will bless the cause of truth and Justice. A Newtown gentleman who had tur keys for sale inserted a small "ad" In The Bee, and hardly before two days had elapsed was deluged with Inquiries from all quarters of Litchfield and Fairfield counties. Moral : If you have anything to sell advertise In The Bee. It reaches the people. In The Forum for March, B. G. North rop, "the father of village improvement societies," explains the method of work and the results of these organizations throughout the country, giving specific instances of the improvements that have been made In towns and of the resultant benefits, financial and .-esthetic. Life on an "ocean flyer," from the lux urious first cabin to the sweltering stoke bole, where the great furnaces sit en throned and have an army of brawny servants to attend them, will be the sub ject of & descriptive article, Illustrated with numerous drawings from life, in McCiure's Magazine for March. Litchfield and Wlnsted are again by the ears over a possible change of the county jail from Litchfield to Wlnsted They have got to enlarge the present tall at Litchfield, It seems, or build a new one. The addition can be put on for lest than 623,000, while if they go to Wlnsted It will cost the county the neat sum of 100,000. All things considered the county Is better off with the jail where It Is, and we believe the county repre sentatives will go slow on foisting on to the county an unnecessary expense. Ia nine cases out of 10 a revolver or shot gun are poor articles to have 'round In case of robbery. Ic la but a year or two ago a young man, Scurtevant, war awakened by the entrance of burglars In to his house. Young Sturtevant got his gun and shot his brother-in-law, City Editor Smith,of the Republican, Spring' field, Mass., who was just coming out of his room to see what the matter was Farmer Peter Hess of Luxemburg.Minn., woke op suddenly the other night, saw a man In the dooryard, jumped to the con elusion that he was a burglar, blazed away from a window, and shot a a Inno cent school principal who had left a hired sleigh over night In the Hess barn in order to make an early start for a teach ers' meeting in the morning. Principal Miller's wounds are very serious, if not .fatal. ; " In speaking on propo3ed legislation In New York for opening saloons on Sun day, Kev Dr Banks, a leading Methodist divine, handled the subject without gloves. He said: It 1 not suggested by anybody tba t the city will be more healthy, that the laborer will be owner ieu orcioineu, mac toe quiet ana goou order ot the city will be advanced, indeed that th physical, social, Intellectual, or moral condition of the people will be in any-way benefited by the open liquor saloon. What Is the ground upon which this demand is mailei' It Is simply this, that the law against the opnn saloon on Sunday oannot be enforced, and therefore, because it cannot be enforced, ought to be abolished, and the open saloon matle lgal. I do not think there was ever a more impudent appeal made to any Legislature in the world than that. It is the logic of a burglar who breaks tnto one of the rooms ot your house, sleeps in your nicely turoished bed with bis boots on, spits his tobacco jtiloe on your carpets, and destroys some of your beautiful works of art. This he does night after night in defiance of law. until after awhile, grown impudent and daring by immunity from punishment, he ooujhs and bluntly demands that you give him a latch key so that he may come and go as he pleases at the front door, and not be troubled by climbing In at the window, ft Is into the parlor day ot our Christian oivt'izatlon that the infamous liquor trafllo, having forced its noisy, filthy, drunken pres ence Into every other day of the week, multi plying disease and poverty and profanity and crime ot every sort, now seeks legal adrais j slon. Against this impudent and wicked de mand every ally oi Christianity and decency j ought to be united. i All honor to the large company o! Koman Catholic priests who have announced so dear ly their warfare against the Sunday saloon, i Let every honest, pure minded Protestant and Catholic, Jew and Gentile, unite on a deter mined effort to defeat this unholy purpose. d3 In Fairfield County.
