ittviKW or tiik siti'ation.
Now, what is tho situation! lu brief,
simply this: Prior to April 1st, 1S1M,
nearly every saloon iu tin eltywMOBi
rying on it business openly and without
hindrance; four fifth of the drug stores
were putting their business to an open
shame by the sale of sodn water and cigars
during all the hours of the Christian Sab
bath, and it 1 biondlv hinted that some of
them told intoxicants under the guise of a
milder beverage. Nearly every cigar
store in the City wa open a on other
days and was a rendezvous for idlers and
persons of ill-repute. The bakeries, con
fectionary stores, ice cream parlors and
corner peanut and fruit stands, with many
others which need not be numer
ated, teemed oblivious of the existence of
any law in Pennsylvania for the protec
tion of the day. Since the culmination of
this movement on April 1, n general re
gard for tho law and the Knhbath as a day
of rest and worship lias been apparent
throughout the city and not less than four
hundred placet of businesj previously
open on Sunday have been closed, includ
ing more than one hundred saloons,
"Honor to whom houor Is due," says
your committee, for many of thoso for
whom thi movement was begun have de
clared that they will never open their
places of business again on Sunday.
Hut the real situation is not in the
above, but in this: A groat work is be
fore this committee. It cau do It if sus
tained by this association of- Christian
ministers and this community of Christian
people. Tho committee is the creature of
tho Pastors' union. It can withdraw from
its accepted responsibility without dis
favor, became It lias not flinched In tha
j performance of a tingle dutv to this hour.
I Not so the Pastors' union. It is comtnit
j ted to tbe protection ?f the Christian Sab-
bath in this city. It can go ahead, and
this committee, if continued, will not
shrink from the task assigned; or it cau
nacn uownaud suffer an Inglorious ueteat.
If the movement is to go for
ward and large means will be required
and many prosecutions await the comiug
of tomorrow. If the spirit is to recede it
will coHt nothing and tbe executive com
mittee will find iminedia'inte relief from
the heaviest responsibility borne by any in
this city at tho present time. In either
caso the secretary of the American Sabbath
union, who, by your action and against bis
protest, wns ma In chairman of this com
mittee, will continue the same work .e
nest he can, believing it to be the work of
Uod aud as essential as any other.
F. A. Do.ny. Chairman.

D. W. Whittle, the noted evangelist, to

City's General Health 1 Oood
There is 110 abatement of tbe raeailes
epidemic in tint city; on the contrary,
tho ditease seems to bo more prevalent
than ever, 13 caiea of measles aud 1
oaae of soarlstlna being reported yes
terday to the board of health.
Considering the total number of
cases reported, but few deaths have
occurred. No part of the city i free
from the Infection. It was supposed
that the hill, on account of its good
drainage and sauitsry location, would
be comparatively free from the dieaae,
hut it ha been effeotod to a greater
extent thau any other portion of tho
if the mors violent diseases, such at
SOarletluS, scarlet fever and diphtheria,
tha South Sido has furnished tbe
largest number of eases.
The health ofScisls, however, are
