quarters in Scranton The Secre
tary Says Ho Is Yet Undaunted.
The Trihuse has received, with a re
quest to print, the following comtnnni
cation from He v. F. A. Dony, secretary
of tbe American Saboatu union:
The Sunday crusade so named by its
enoiuies was no child's play or visionary
scheme of dreamer?. It was a product of
circumstances and confronted conditions.
It is by no means abandoned as a failure.
The enemy may exult, but tUe Sabbath
forces are not touted. It was not a tight
of cockerels, nor a contest in which brute
force decided the issue. Its promoter be
lieved in the movement as au effort t save
an institution of g-tictiil necessity the
CbriMiuu Sabbath. It appeared tot hem
a cause iu which every CUristian in th
city should be united uiul one iu which nil
who toil for daily bread should have a
common interest. Ah they viewed it the

itself. Tbere was a "for" and there was
un "uBinnsit" nud the "betweeus" were
the euemy' best allie.", who demonstrated
by their weakneaj the necessities of the
case. Such a contest may cover a genera
tion, but tho rout of the enemy is as cer
tain as the rising of the sun.
THE MOVEMENT IN RETROSPFX'T.
For three years and more the office of
the Aniericnu Sabbath union for North
eastern Pennsylvania has been in this city.
It has not been without influence. Its sec
retary has spoken of his one theme, "Sab
bath Observance," in most of tho churches;
has addressed the meetings of the pastors,
convention and assemblies, and has kept
the work of Sadbath protection before the
people. In the early part of last year
practical action was begun by the organi
zation of local committees. The success of
these committees has been extraordinary
and in several towns Fundny business has
been entitely removed. The movement is
not a crusade in any sense and those iu this
city who depreciate and criticize its begin
nings ignore aud overlook full three
fourths of its history. It began here on
Xlurch 21 last with a ten days' canvass bv
discreet Christian committees twenty
three in number whose duty it was to cou
fer with every business mnu nud repro
sentative of Sunday woik, iuvit
ing co-operation. The work culmi
nated April 1 In tho general closing
of all plnces of biiiiness on Sunday. To
their credit bs it s,aid tbere was scarcely a
saloon iu tho city tliat did not bIiow tliw
movement marks of respect. That any
proprietor ws overlooked was the fault
of individual committees and not of tbo
general management, and if any hud ex
cuse to take advantage of this fact it was
toe class above named and not the half
dozou druggists who posed as mnrtyn.
1 he first uirest was made after one full
month of argument and persuasion, and
sfter due notice to offenders, ami its sub
ject was the proprietor of a bakery who
had defied our committee and shown hiin
wlf to bean anarchist aud au iufldel. Of
tbo arrests male for violations of the net
of IT'Jt, five were druggists, two wero
cigar dealers, three were bakors and ice
cream dealers, ouo a fruit vender, nud
wheu it may be said that diligent assist
ants to the secrotary of the American
sabbath union were unable to secure
proofs sufficient to convict against a
larger number of offenders it is ho smnll
compliment to a movement which was so
widespread aud successful, and it is also a
commontaty on the heinousness of re
sisting and obstructing for gain a move
ment so full of promise. Again I repont
that not loss than SOU places of business,
previously opou on Sunday, respected aud
conformed to this movement, ilts col
lapse means the loss of these valuable re
sults. THE METHODS DEFENDED.
As transparent as the light of the snu
was the spirit and motive of the Sunday
closing movement. It set nut to be con
siderate aud kinil and to reason with the
offender, no matter what might be his pur
suit. Its koy-noto was '"six days for labor
aud one for rest." It secured the honest
and hearty co-operation of nine-tenths of
those who had through force of circum
stances or otherwise offended against the
Christian sentiment of this city and the
laws of the commonwealth by the trans
action of worldly busiuess on the
Lord's Day. But one course was open to
the managers of the movement to prevent
its failure and protect its friends, and that
was the enforcement of the laws against
those who resisted and doiitid all methods
of procedure. To prosecute implies a
prosecutor. That this is no enviable posi
tlon is well known. It went begging for
Incumbents until, from a sense of duty,
the writer shouldered that burden also
In the interest of the great work. Success
ful prosecutions demanded proofs and
these were obtained in an open and honor
able way, and conviction followed in
every case, nntil the defendants ad pted
the dishonorable methods of criminating
themselves, thus distorting a pennltv into
a license and maklug the law of this'state,
which was cltarly founded on the fourth
Commandment, a nullity and a by-word.
Great thlugs were expected- ot the
mayor, who had frequently exprossed a
favorable sentiment toward this movement
of his constituents in the interest ot tho
peace and older c f the city. Assurances
of co-operation were treely given and that
co-operation was looked for in vain. The
mysiery is only explainable through poli
tical alliances whose trncks are cover -d. It
need only be said that the mayor of the
city has disappointed the expectations of
Christian people who gave him their suf
frages, aud has seemed to regard more the
pledges to the city' enemies, the vicious
and the immoral. Scaicely less were tha
expectations centering In the courts of
justice, presumably always ou the side of
morality and good order. Appeals from
decisions clearly and absolutely within th
jurisdiction of the alderman are allowed
whou delay is the apparent aud only pur
pose. Judgments are reversed ou more
technicalities; linal decisions of trivial
proceedings are delayed for mouths, until
their possible good effect is utterly de
stroyed, All these peculiarities of the
situation nud developments give proof thut
the bulk of history is unwritten. They
have had their weight iu hanineriiig a
movement which will bear thescrutiuy of
the brightest sunlight.
IS THE MOVEMENT DEAD?
.A Christian city, orau iutldol city; the
best element iu the nscoudauey. or the
worst that is after nil, tho question. An
orderly, quiet, restful Sunday, as Uod
made it, uud the law conserves it, or a hol
iday with all its concomitants, paving the
way for a woik day and the enslavement
of the poorer cla-aes another problem
which It is wise to consider. To defend tho
Christian Sabbath is right; to undermine
it is wrong. In this is tbo real issue, mid
by this test will the movement be judged,
and ou this bssls ill it live or die. It is
the province ot a movement to move. The
natural order is forward, not backward;
but it may rest, and It may die while rest
ing. Let us hope not tti this case, The de -mise
of such a work means much. We uro
bad enough with a Sabbath, what Would
we be without one?
It Is wit hiu the power of Scrautou to bo
a model city. Her citizens should be con
tent with nothing less. The character of
her Sabbaths will determiue the character
of the city itself and affect favorably or
otherwise the prosperity aud happine-s
of tho people. The Sabbath Is the smile
ot Uod; to save it is to be approved: to let
it slip is to face perils and desolation
which no human hand c:;ti stay, nud
which will, sooner or later, nppall tho
slont-st human heart. The S'.md.iy din
ing movement, when under pers.-i ul di
rection of the undersigned, was ellVelive.
It reached results aud held them. For
three months It uiuiulaim-d its po-itiou at
heavy cost, aud was handed over to tho
citizens' committee tecuuso the Sabbath
union was without fuuds for its continu
ance. Criticisms were powerless nud the
devotiou of tbo Pastor's union was all
that could be desired. Wheu the writer
resigned thu chairmanship be by no
means abaudoiied the work. As secretary
of th ' American Sabba h uui n, with u
district embracing eighteen counties, he
ban surely no luck of busiuess nud respon
sibility. OUIOI.N OF TIE MOVEMENT
The Sunday movement was a child of
the American Sabbath tini iii. That or
ganization is still in I he city nud will re
main, its mission is for good ouly mi l it
has proved its riht to live. It will press
the battle, not with tho enemy's weapo is,
but with the arts and devices that make
for peace und may wiu and hold the confi
dence of all good people. Its distuct sec
rotary, with more thuu three years' asso
ciation with its great work, hu.s more
coufltieuce than ever in its success, lie
invites sympathy and co operation from
all who love tne day, assuring them thut
its work will be prosecuted with vigor and
fidelity aud with such dignity and self-respect
ii9 will retain tne coutideuce and
support of all who value the day as a day
of rest aud worship and favor its protec
tion from influences that would overthrow
and destroy it. Correspondence from
friends of the work is cordiuily invited.

stated, was the amount of taxjs of two
