That Lnurel Hill park is a favorite

people, is shown by the attendance

huvd clouds, a good sized crowd rode
on the mcrry-go-round, lunched aud

Editor of Tor. Ti IBUNB!
On rending the letter in vnur issue of
Thb Tribuiob on Tuesday over the name
ot John Davy, I was impressed with the
Idea that the writer was some sort of a
religious zealot. It reminded me of words
1 once heard n speaker make mo of: "I
would stai d With mv feet in the nshes of
Sinai and thunder tho terrors of tho law."
That is ju-t what John Davy seems to ho
trying to do. II" talks wildly nnd inco
herently, and makes bold assertions which
bandy have the semblance of truth.
In the llrst place, aftor his preliminary,
he misquotes Webster, It is nor.
but civil lilrorty that wo are to deal with,
and here follows Webster's definition en
tire. "OlVll liberty is tho liberty of men
in a state of society, or natural liberty, so
far only abridged and restrained as u ne-os-ary
and expedient for tbosafotv and in
terest of the society, state or nation. A
restraint ot natural liberty, not necessary
or expedient for the public, ts tyranny or
oppression, Civil liberty is an exemp
tion from the arbitrary will of Others,
wLich exemption is secured by established
laws, which restrain every man from in
juring or controlling another. Hence the
restraints of law Bro essential to civil lib
erty." As regnrds religious liberty, Webster
defines It as follows; "Religious liberty is
the fr w right of adopting and enjoying
opinions on religious subleets, and of wor
siiiping tho Supremo Being according to
the dictates of contoionce, without exter
nal control."
If there is any one thing a true Ameri
can citizen abhors more than another it is
religious intolerance. The writer of the
above-named lotter seeni3 to he a chain
nion of lynch law by onotiiie a Bible pins
ago, "that the congregation brought the
transgressor without the camp aud stoned
hiin with stoeos that he diod,"
A very righteous etieagemont for a con
gregation, stoning an orring brother to
death. lhoBe Uavs or ignorance ami su
perstitiou do uot flourish largely in these
L iiitea states.
To assert that the Sabbath is as old as
creation is n mere assumption which he
stultifies wheu he refers to Babylon as
having a law prohibiting the observance
of the Jewish Sabbnth. Aud to compare
America to Babylon and other peoples
who have gone out ot existence, is irrel
event to tho case. As near as we can
learn from history thero never was n na
tion on tlie faco of the globe that pos
ses-ou the lroouom, tne civil ana religious

If tho teachers of Christianity would
follow more in the footsteps of their aian
ter, they would proliably have more fol
lowers. It is lecorded (1 quoto from
memory) that Christ said, "S)ine men os-
teera ono day nbove another, oth
crs esteem every day alike; let every man
txi persuaded in his own mind." Again,
"the Sabb ith wns made for man nnd not
man for the Sabbath. ' Hearing, doubt
less, that the Sabbath wns instituted for
the good and welfare of the human race, a
nay of rest, relief from toil anil car.
day for innocont enjoyment, to drink in
tho beauties of nature, to feel grateful to
our trainer in neaven for the many nies-i
iurjs we enjoy; but not to be enslaved by
that day.
The Jews and some Oentiles beliovo that
Saturday is the true Sabbath. The word
"Lord's day" aro nowbore to bo found in
the Bible. And to everybody those words
in n law to enforce the obsomuico of .sun-
day for religious reasons is an insult to
the Saturday fnbbath worshipers. Our
constitution and laws do not restrain uny
person from observing Saturday or Son
Say, or any other day as n holy day. And
itiscontrary to sho spirit and letter of
our government to uiako law3 for the ob
servance of any one day of each week for
other than sanitary reasons. The govern
ment tolerates nil religious sects, nnd ig
nores them all. No union of church and
stte for me.
As the observance of Sunday as n day of
rest and religious exerciso is so very gen
eral it suits me as well as any other day. I
feel tha need of resting one day in seven
nnd eujoy the day very highly. This
world would bo very monotonous If wo
had to toll every day in the year, without
rest or rocroation other than sleop. Even
an inanimate machine, n locomotive for
instnnce, needs an occasional rest to keep
it from going to pieces prematurely.
I favor the oh-orya:. ci' nnd enforcement
Of all laws that are just and wholesome.
A law that is unjust and oppressive 1 am
not bound to respect. The Sunday law of
1704 is superannuated and not suited or
adapted to the present wants of society.
Thero Is no more harm In selling sodn
water than there Is in selling milk. And
to arrest a woman for Belling soda water
is downright tyranny. Wo ail know that
