The Sunday Question At Chicago.
The settlement of the Sunday open:

——The Clearfield Democrats at
their county convention on Tuesday
last placed the following excellent
ticket in the field: For President
Judge, Hon. D. L. Kress ; for Treasur-
er, Geo. M. DiveLING; for Commis:
sioners, Jas. L. Reap and W. T. Ross,
and for Auditors, T. J. CLearY and J. |
M. McDoweLL. Judge Kress was
nominated by acclamation a high com-
pliment to a worthy and deserving gen-
tleman, and the balance of the ticket
lieves that enterprise of an embarrass-
ment that threatened to materially in-
terfere with its success. There may be
differences of opinion as to the right and
wrong of the question that has been
determined by the decision of the Uni-
ted States Supreme Court, and to
many it may appear that the ends of
religion and morality have not been
served by the action of that tribunal,
but there are but few’ thoughtful peo-
ple who will not agree that the inter-
est of personal liberty, as well as the
financial success ot the Fair, would
have had to be sacrificed if it had been
determined to conduct the exposition
on strict Sabbatarian principles.
There was something decidedly ob-
jectionable in the attempt to have the
general government interfere with and
determine a religious question connect-
ed with the Fair. The founders very
wisely excluded every religious and
sectarian interest and consideration
from the functions and operations of
the government. Their purpose was
that in the matter of conscience there
should be the fullest liberty, and no in-
terference with the beliefs or disbeliefs
of any one. It is a glorious thing that
we are a Christian people, but there is
nothing ‘in the constitution or any ot
the acts of the founders that indicates
the least shade of religion in our gov-
ernment, their great fundamental ob.
ject on this subject being the unre-
restrained action of the citizens in mat.
ters or belief, whatever their religious
faith or want of faith may be. Hence
the mistake, as measured by the spirit
and purpose of our constitution and
free form of government, that was.made
on the Sunday opening question in
calling on Federal authority to step
in through the medium of its courts
and determine a matter that involved
a religious issue,
Itis urged in behalf of such action
that the government gave a certain
amount of money to the Fair in consid-
eration of keeping the gates closed on
Sunday, Lut in such acts as this, and
in the enforcement of such a consider-
ation, would appear that spirit of pater-
naiismn that would place the conduct
and the conscience of the people under
government control, and would encour-

The Fence Bill Veto.
The following are Governor Pattison’s
reasons in full, for vetoing the bill giv-
ing to Clearfield, Centre, and Cameron,
unties a special fence law :
HARRISBURG, June 13th, 1893.
I herewith file in the office of the Sec-
retary of the Commonwealth, with my
objections thereto, House Bill No. 548,
utled “An Act providing for the fenc-
ing of improved lands used for agricul-
tural and horticultural purpose
The purpose of this bill is to enact a
special fence law forthe counties of
Clearfield, Centre and Cameron and to
in the
of Clearfield, Centre and
age the Federal authority to interfere
with questions that should be exclu-
sively within the jurisdiction of state
authority, the question of opening or
closing the gates of a Fair in the state
of Illinois being a subject only for the
State Courts to determine, if there is
anything in the theory of local self gov-
Apart from the religious
aspect of the question, which has no
business to be intruded into an issue
touching the fundamental principles of
free government and state sovereignty,
Chief Justice FuLLer acted in strict
accordance with the intention of the
constitution, and in consonance with
the spirit of our free institutions, wheu
he stopped the Federal authority from
seddling with a matter that hinged on
a question of religion.
Better that the money given to the
Fair should be lost or misapplied than
that it should furnish occasion for a
paternal government to assume to be
the conscience keeper of the people and
the regulator of their religious prac-
create & jurisdiction for the appraisment
of damages in certain cases of tresspass
in counties, different from the laws of
the State, applicable to other geographic-
al divisions thereof. It has been al-
most uniformly held by the Executive
of the Commonwealth, since the adop-
tion of the new Constitution, that laws
of this kind were within the prohibi-
tion of the 7th section of the 8rd Article,
which declares that, “the General As-
sembly shall not pass any local or special
law regulating the affairs of counties
or prescribing the duties and powers of
officers in counties.” It has been con-
tended before the Suprema Court of the
State that this related only to political
or general, and not to domestic affairs of
this kind, but an exact and emphatic
defination has been given to the tern by
the decision of the highest court, which
its citizens, legislators and executive
are alike bound to respect. The word
“affairs” was expressly chosen by the
framers of the Constitution to give to
the prohibition upon local legislation a
broad application, and in Morrison V.
Bachert, 112 Pa.. 822, it was said:
“When it (the Constitution) speaks of
the affairs of a county, it means such
affairs as effeet-the people of that coun-
ty.” In Frost V. Cherry, 122 Pa.,

The case was given to the jury this

direct and circumstantial evidence, and
said that failure to prove an essential
fact would be fatal, but failure to prove
an helpful fact might not be.
Lizzie's statements about the note
were discussed at length, and he said
they must be satisfied they were false.
Every fact proved must be reasonably
consistent with guilt, The government
did not show that anybody else had
the opportunity to commit the crime,
but must prove the defendant commit-
ted it. The jury must reason as to the

: Unanimous Decision Reached by the United
States Court of Appeals— Dispute Practically
Curcaco, June 18.—By a unanimous
vote, the United States court of appeals
has reversed the circuit court decision
closing the World's fair on Sunday,
and declared yesterday, through Chiet
Justice Fuller as their spokesman, that
the government had no exclusive right
or avthority in the control of ‘the Col-
umbian exposition. This substantial
| and decisive victory for the Sunday
openers was received by the crowed
court room with loud cheers.
The scenes in the federal building
were a fitting climax to the dispute be-
tween the local directory and the gov-
ernment of the United States. The
room was crowded two hours before
the announced hour for the decision.
It was not until 11.15 that the chief
justice, followed by Justices Bunn and
Allen, took seats on the bench. As
soon as the court had been formally
opened the chief justice orally an-
nounced that in view of the many
questions involved the written opinions
of himself and associates would be de-
ferred, and that owing to the impor-
tance of the questions at issue and the
| necessity for a speedy deliverance
from the bench, a general decision
would be then and there rendered.
The chief justice then smoothed out
several pages of type written manu-
script and began to read. He first de-
| voted his attention to the contention of
counsel for the government that the
court of appeals had no jurisdiction in
the premises, and after reviewing the
arguments at some length declared the
motion to dismiss the appeal overruled.
Coming to the main question, the
court took the ground that the appro-
| priation of $2,500,000 in souvenir coins
| by the United States government could
noc be constructed as a charity or a
charitable bequest. Tt was simply an
appropriation for the assistance and
benefit of the local corporation to com-
| plete a work that affected the honor of
i the United States.
| As to the right of the United States
to possesssion aud control of the
grounds, the court held that the local
| corporation was in lawful and actual
| possession, and that this fact had been
| recognized by acts of the national leg
| islature.
| The court repudiated the idea that
(the United States had any exclusive
| rights or authority in the premises, and
| that no tenable grounds had been
I shown for excepting the case under
| the hearing from the ordinary rules
governing a court of chancery.
“Theretore, concluded the chief jus-
| tice, the order of the circuit court is
| reversed, and the case is remanded for
any further proceedings not inconsis-
lent with this ruling.”
The deliverance of the chief justice
' had been listened to with intense si-
lence, but at its conclusion there went
up a great cheer from the crowd in at-
tendance, which caused the chief jus-
tice to smile meaningly at his associ-
ates, The advocates of Sunday closing
were considerably cast down over the
| result, but admitted that, inasmuch as
| the ruling was unanimous, there was
no alternative but to bow to the su-
preme authority of the United States
| judiciary,
| Rev. Dr. McLean, secretary of the
American Sabbath union, while disap-
pointed by the decision, was not dis-
couraged as to the ultimate success of
| altempts to close the fair on Sundays,
This decision, he said, clears the way
for the suit begun in the federal court
here by Wanamaker & Brown and
other stockholders in the exposition to
prevent Sunday opening. The point
has been made in the case just concla-
ded that the World's Fair directors
were willing to refund to the govern-
went the money obtained under the
souvenir coin act in return for the
privilege of keeping open on Sunday.
Wanamaker and the World's Fair
stockholders associated with him as-
gert in their bill that such return
would cause loss and impair their in-
terests as part owners of the exposition.

World's Fair Excursion Trains Likely to be Run
on AU the Trunk Lines.
NEW York. June 20.--The general
agents of the trunk lines to-day decided
to recommend to the executive eommit-
tee of the trunk line association a special
fair excursion trains. These trains will
consist of paseenger coaches only, but
will run as express trains, making the
trip each way in about thirty hours.
They will leave New York in the morn-
ing, which will bring them to Chicago
in the afternoon of the following day.
The tickets will be good for ten days.
If the executive committee approves
the recommendation, as it undoubtedly
will, Passenger Commissioner’ Farmer
will apportion the trains among the va-
rious roads so that they will be run in
regular alternation, each road having 'a
regular day for starting 1ts excursions.
These trains will not interfere in any
way with the regular schedules and will
pick up no passengers in the Central
traffic association’s territory. 1 7

Sunday Law Repeal Vetoed.
The $25 Fine Will Continue in Allegheny. County
—The Governor Thinks Its Repeal Would Be a
. Step Backward.
HARRISBURG, June 20. — Governor |
Pattison has vetoed the bill to repeal the
Sunday law in Allegheny county which
provides a penalty of $25 for each
offense instead of $4 as under the Sun-
day law of 1794. The purpose of the
repesler was to reduce the fine in Alle-
gheny county to $4. The governor says
no popular demand is mada for its re-
peal: that it is broad, liberal and flexi-
ble ; that it has resulted in a better en-
forcement of the Sunday law, and that
the effort of sound legislation should
rather be to make the pensliy general
rather than to impair the effectiveness
of the law ina particular community.
He thinks the approval of the biil would
be a step backward.
The governor approved the following
bills. Providing for the sale of the equi-
table title of the commonwealth in the
property known as the ‘Grove City Ar-
mory” in the borough of Grove City,
Mercer county, and for the distribution
of the proceeds of the sale.

Hewit Bill Vetoed.
Governor Pattison Thinks There Is an Unfair
Discrimination in the Measure.
HarrisBurg, June 19.—Governor
Pattison to-night vetoed the Hewit bill
“to prevent the adulteration of drags,
food and sapiritons, fermented or malt
liquors.” He thinks upon the whole
its purposes are good, but that such
radical attempts to intefere with the
domestic life and private affairs of the
people should always be hedged about
with ample safe guards. "It is also his
opinion that there is an unfair discrim-
ination in the bill against the manu-
facturers of beer, and that the clause
relating to the adulteration of drugs
would probably conflict with the pres:
ent pharmacy law and work confusion.
The governor believes the people can
well wait for a proper bill.
There was one bill approved. 'It

second class to fix the salary of the
hoard of assessors ‘and ‘the basis for
