Churches Protest Against Sun
COOTCIL AUD MAYOB CONDEMNED.
Various Congregations tnlte and With
flue Voice Record Tbelr Condemnation
and Demand an Observant Sabbath
With one accord the Protestant
denominations of the city as
sembled in union meeting at the
First M. E. church last evening, con
demned and protested against the
action of the city council in repeal
ing the ordinance governing the Sun
day closing of saloons, lhe euuice
was crowded to its utmost, ana tne
feeling of the congregation was
frankly expressed in the resolutions
demanding a reconsideration of tbe
action presentel by William Jack
son. On the rostrum were seated
Kevs. Ira W. Allen, of the Central
Presbyterian; C. K. Taylor, of the
First Baptist; W. S. Marquis, of the
Broadway Presbvterian; 1". W. Graf
ton, of the Christian and F. W. Mer-
rell, of the first M. t. bongs ap
propriate of the meeting', object
were rendered, and every expression
was directed at what was termed af
fairs of an immoral tendency cham
pioned by the city fathers, who
were backed in their unlawful doings
by the saloon keeper and liquor-eaten
classes. Introductory to the speak
ing Kev. F. W. Merrcll told of the
heartrending blow it was to his
anticipations when the news of the
council s action reached him. lie
then called upon S. J. Woodin, fore
man of the plow works wood depart
ment, who reviewed the Sunday
liquor selling from the workingmen d
standpoint. They supported the
liquor traffic and wo aid not waste
their restful day in debauchery but
for the C9 invitations encouragingly
tendered them every Sunday. He
further held that the strong powerof
drink was behind the council when
it favored the saloon men and tram
peled the city's Christian influence.
Key. Ira . Allen introduced com
munications from C. K. Mixtcr and
11. II. Ron, of the Rock Island Stove
company; Robert Linn, of the luni-
i " o i r I t i
ucr cuuii3Dv:o. u- neuuuii, ui n rj

favored the enforcement of the laws
as a benefit to all classes.
Rev. Taylor unal William Jackson.
Rev. C. E. Taylor viewed the re.
pealing of the ordinance as thought
less on tbe part of tbe counciimcn.and
bolieved there was vot hope of their
realizing its immoral results and
recalling it. Conderuna'ory remarks
were mada by William Jackson, who
termed the action cowardly, and
branded the mayor and aldermen as
leaders in a violent assault upon the
respectable and Christian people of tbe
commuuity. He was ashamed of the
council, which had done something
never before known in the history of
the city. Mr. Jackson laid particu
lar stress upon Mayor Knox s stand,
and quoted from 1 he Akgts his prob
able intention of asking repeal of the
ordinance prohibiting Sunday demon
strations because the Salvation Army
saw tit to worship on the streets. It

voted against repeal.
Mr. Jackson presented the follow

by rising vote, and he was afterward
delegated to present them to the
Whereas, The city council of this
city has repealed the ordinance for
bidding the open saloon for business
on Sunday, we, citizens of Rock
Island, assembled in this house, ded
icated to the worship of Almighty
God, do solemnly and considerately
record our protest against such re
peal, and set forth these as some of
the reasons why we protest:
First. Snperior to and above all
other considerations material or oth
erwise, we oppose the open saloon or
tippling houfe on Sunday because
the same is a violation of the law of
God, at we conscientiously believe,
supported by the teaching of the
church of Christ. To the faithful ob
servce of such law and teaching, we
are pledged as professing christians
or supporters of the christian
Second. Because the open saloon
on the Sabbath is opposed to the
civilization of our country, a civili
zation that has strengthened with
our growth, upon which the cus
toms, laws and public policy of our
country are founded; to assail,
weaken or destroy which is unpatri
otic and un-American in its influ
ence. Third. The repeal of the ordi
nance was an nne&l ed for, needless
assault upon the moral, conscien
tious and religious convictions of a
large majority of our citizens who
are opposed to the open saloon on
the Sabbath', who have not demanded
the repeal and who are uncompro
misingly opposed thereto not only
on moral and religious grounds,
but upon grounds of public policy of
Fourth. The act of the council
and mayor was a surrender to a mi
nority element in society, opposed to
the enforcement of onr Sunday laws,
opposed to the influence of our
churches demanding their support,
opposed to that feature of our civili
zation which has always recognized
the Sabbath as a day "of rest for the
growth and strengthening of our re
ligious and moral natures that assist
so largely in developing the charac
ter of a law abiding citizen.
Fifth. The repeal of this ordi
nance puts our city in opposition to
the moral and religious sentiment of
our own state, which long ago ex
pressed the public sense by enacting
law still in . iorce, forbidding
tbe open taloon or tippling house on
Sunday. We regard this repeal as a
declaration to the people of this
state that this city is nnder tbe con
trol of the liquor interest; that in
stead af that interest being con
trolled by the people as intended by
our government, the people are being
controlled by it.
Sixth. e regard tnis repeal as
not only encouraging idleness and
disorder, thus affecting the prosper
ous growth ol our city, ana discour
aging the settlement therein of peo
ple and investment of capital that
would assist our working men in
supporting themselves and their
families, but also as a direct injury
to all classes of society because of
tie baneful influences that will in
evitably appwr as the result ot the
open Sunday saloon.
Seventh, we airectiv repel the
idea that the good order of our city
on Sunday should be disturbed be
cause of transient Sunday exenr
sions; that our cherished" institu
tions, public policy and principles
may be ignored because persons
from abroad choose to visit this city
on Sunday; persons who are not re
sponsible'for our good order, who
will not suffer if we become dis
orderly, and who may not care
whether we improve or degenerate
materially or morally. We regard
such considerations as beneath the
notice of reasonable persons of any
age, sex, color or condition.
Eighth. For many years the open
saloon ou Sunday has been forbidden
by city ordinances as expressive of
the public sentiment on that sub
ject, and no reason now exists why
that sentiment should be ignored.
We regard the heretofore non-n
forccmcnt of the Sunday ordinance,
not as expressive of the public wish
that it should not be enforced, but
as a neglect of lawful municipal
duty, and we believe that the ordi
nance repealed should not only be
re-enacted, but also enforced as faith
fully as any ordinance the people are
expected to obey.
Ninth. We believe the ladies who
have lately interested themselves in
the matter of bunday closing of sa
loons were actuated in thair course
not by any spirit of ill-will or malice
towards tbe saloon keeper as such.
but solely in the interest of the
home, the father, mother and chil
dren, knowing that Sunday tempta
tion or excess is likely not only to
ruin tbe individual father, but bnug
want and disgrace upon the mother
and children. Believing such to tie
the spirit in which these ladies have
acted we denounce any and all vie
ious attacks upon them, and while it
may be impossible to ward off or
prevent these attaeks, we can assure
them that the word of God speaks the
truth when it says of tbe worker for
B cseil ari ye. hcn men shall rcvllj von. a-.d
pe sccnto yon. and say a"l manner or evil
ugMwi you lairciy, ror my eafce.
Lastly. We cordially support and
approve the course of Aldermen
Kennedy, Nelson and Gall in voting
against the repeal, and commend
their independence and spirit in re.
fusing to recognize and support this
assault upon the integrity and order
ol tbe Sabbath day, as practiced and
believed by a majority of the people
and supported by 6tate law, espe
cially when there was no public ue
raand for such action. We respect
fully present these considerations
and this our protest to the mayor
ana aiuermen who assisted in this
mutter, believing that upon a fair
and candid consideration by them of
tneir action in the premises they
will be satisfied that in their action
they have injured onr city without
reason, trespassed npon the religious
and moral convictions of a large ma
jority of our people without cause.
that the influence of their action
tends to disorder, that they have
nerdlessly arrayed themselves against
the law abiding element in this citv.
the element that largely centributes
to our growth and prosperity; and
we no now request that the ordi
nance repealed shall be re-enacted
To this end this congregation of
citizens pledge themselves, and the
secretary of this meeting shall for
ward a copy of these resolutions to

painted in thiacolur a representation of
i telegraph line stretching away iu tho

construction of a lightning arrester, his
object being to toko tho lightning that
struck tho wir.i and ran it into the
ground, tho instrument being so con
structed that it would not interfere with
tho light cm rent used in telegraphing.
This instrument was placed out on tho
prairie ou two logs, and in order to

modern "receiver," was placed in the

down into tho rnngo of a permanent

instrument was inspected.
A similar device was placed iu the

connected with tbeothrr end of tho lino.
