The Salvationists may parade
the thoroughfares and pound their
drum on the Sabbath as well as any
other day. and the city authorities
have no right to interfere with them,
holds Justice H. A. Weld, before
whom the city sought to prosecute
the organization for disregarding its
ordinances. Justice Weld rendered
his decision, withheld a few days,
this morning, and dismissed tbe pro
ceedings against Harvey Butler, the
drummer boy. The statutory pro
visions contend that religious ser
vices are not to be interrupted
so Ions: as they do not harm the
oeace of the state, and the iustice
holds that the drum-beating is a part
of tbe salvation Army service, and
therefore cannot be stopped by mu
nicipal authority as a public demon
stration or procession, wnicn the
ordinances prohibit Sunday. This
gives the army full sway.

and allowing processions and all
publio demonstrations on Sunday.
