STATEMENT BY REV. F. A. DONY His Plain Word3 for Opponents and Critics The Mayor and the Courts Arraigned The American Sabbath Union Still Has Permanent Head 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 tKi-ularizatiou of tho Sabbath meant its iiiadnal but certain ovei throw. They lookid upou the holiday features of its ob- M-imuce iu mis city, aim mo utter uisro gurd in certain quarters and by many business men if tlm Rnnetifir nf thn .l.iv no one of t be darkest signs of the times, iu- yiwujt uenanco oi law aim mo spine ot au archy, a menace to that Christianity Which is tllO nation' fAnmlatinn nnri nn 1... sult to the Uod to whom as a people we prompt allegiance. Thllt movement- Whirh will nnl annn hn forgotten, and whica is but begun, came , luo tuutciu 01 me city s truest citizen ship for her good name. It was set for IsW Alld Order flivninnt. thA Dhumalnca ftaA. gardof every principle of our holy Chris- tmuiij. iui ib were tne inristian churches, minnters and poople; against it were the grasping, whoe sole purpose was gain nnd there U no distinction morally, whether it is the soda fountain or the beer kP7 in tills Ilia nnt.r-nnu it ollaS scts, the rabble. Every law-breaking sa- iuuii, ouu urumei onu gamonug aen ot tue city, the blasphemers and the scoffers at God and Christian, were combine 1 in re sistance to this effort of the city to cloan 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. F. A. Dony, Diet. Sec'y American Sabbath Union. Scranton, July 'ii, lb'Jl. HIS LEG AMPUTATED. Edward J.

Lie favored the purchase of the three lots on the corner of Lafayette and Everstt wbioh he said could be secured for a little more than half what was asked for the twenty-five additional feet ou Rebecca avenue. Only three members coincided with his views aud the committee's recommendation was adopted. A communication was received from the board's uttorney, Lion. H.A.
