Clayton regrets very much to lose these worthy pioneers who have done so inu;h for the upbuild ing of the town and country, but we fear that a few short weeks of summer vacation is all we can hope to see of them in the future. The Sunday Law, Has never been enforced in Clay ton to any appreciable extent. True, several years ago there was a'short period during which our drinking places were shut tight on the first day of the week; but that soon wore away, and for the paBt five years the side entrances to our saloons have always been open. Some of the saloon people, we be lieve, would be willing 0 obey this law, provided all would dp so. Then there is another feature lxiut the matter which causes some embarrassment, and that is the fact that our drug stores sell liquor at rctai), and our saloon fok feel that they would have some the worst of the deal if they close and these drug stores reniaia open We believe that most of the cities and towns of the Territory obey this statute, and hope te see the day when our little city may fall into line. 1,126 Klikl'lTTfo Injured.
