We greet with a oustecordial welcome

quiet of our ordinarily boxy thorough

It is Intended to keep alive in mon'ot
minds the great foundation truth of Re

But apart from HI character so a
religious festival, Indeed it Is the
only religious festival of the whole
year that bears [be sod of the
State, and is therefore binding on all
with an equal obligation. I S.W. apart
from Its character as • relies:4e festival.
I greet its return as a mere dell holiday
—a day of respite and relaxation to the ,
over-worked minds and bodies of men.
And I wish from my heart such days
were multiplied; In the struggle of life

live piore In one year now than they

and trials with an early death. To my
mind, one of the urgent questions of this
day how to provide the people with
the means of rational and elevating en
joymenL It is jolt as Important as to
Simulate enterprise or cherish industry.
Unfortunately, most of the amusements
within toe reach of the people are of
such a character se to corrupt and de
b.; instead of elevating them. Many
of them are shocking to all sense of mod
esty and decency. They entice the
young and throw them In the way of
temptation and snares, and work the
ruin of too many. But days like this,
that are a real respite, strengthen the
bed art of our nature, develop the social
feeling, and, instead of leading the young
from their home; bring the family to
gether, and afford ample opportunity for
the purest ono healthiest enjoyment,
while they relieve from toll and give the
boor jaded mind brief space for relaxa
tion. If on no highargroeurd than MS, I
would gladly welcome the return of
this doy, or a multiplicable of each.
But when to the. ts molded thollict already

humanity, It became yeomanry to vacate
It and remove the bodies to other remo
teness As many who were buried there
had no friends residing here, it became
necessary to appoint soma suitable per.
sons, with power to do so. Hems thl■
Ant of Assembly.
The Asa appointed three poem= ea
Commbuilquere for this - purpose. It di
rected them to advertise for four coneeo
utive weeks, in two of the city papers,
their intention tilt remove the bodies
under the authority of the Act, before
doing so. This they did. And 'after
waiting savant months, they proceeded
to remove the remaining bodies. In the
meantime a great many bodies bad been
removed by their friends. The Commis.
stoner. had at length emptied entirely
the common ground, and had removed a
few bodice from the tote, but only in
those cases where the lot owners had
directed it to be done.
During all this time, extending over •
oeriod of more than • year, and when
everybody knew whet waeibeang done in
the matter, these lot.own•ra, who are
now complaining, never objected -to the
vacation of the ground, mar took one
step to Indicate that the Commissioners
had no power to proceed under the Act.
The only question, was What would the
Commie.loners pay them for the Iota?
On this point the Commissioner. had
several conferences with the-lot owners,
or with a committee who pretended to
represent th e lot-owners Not knowing
what the ground would sell for, or what
would. be the expenses of removing
the bodies andbuying lota in the
other cemeteries, the Commissioners did
not feel that they were authorized to pay
a big price to the lot owners. They pro
m remove the bodies Into such
the lot owner, might .purclrame In
any other cemetery, and reflood them
the original cost of their lots, leaving it
to the mit:store to be appointed by the
Court to say whether they should get
more. Not agreeing upon the price to
be paid for their lota, some of the lot
owners applied to the District Court for
Injunction m prevent the removal of
the bodies, alleging that the Act was nn-
At this halt the Oommindoners had
esponded the KIM of 18,300 and, were
liable for 12,000 more—expended on the.
filth of being re-imbursed fromatte sole
of the property. The Act authorised
them, atter removing all the bodies to
sell the grotind. The prOceeds of the
male were to be applied, tint, to the buy
ing of new iota and the Altp=lol of re
moval; second, oonape=dMn to lot own
ers; and third, the balance, if any, after
paying necessary mtr. num, to go to the
churches owning the ground. And it
authorised the thurt to appoint three
imitable persons as arbitrators to say
what compensation the he owners should
Of the seventy-three persons who
OoValued in the proceedings to stop the
mmissionent, forty-nine of them did
not appear from the took@ of the burial
ground to be lot owners. Several of the
othbrs had already moved their deed.
It wee manifest, therefore, that same of
these parties were after money only, and
It was suggested that some of them had
been buying up old certificates ma speo
The District Court thought the Act was
unconstitutional and granted an Winne,
tion. The case was taken up to the Mn.
prams Court, where it is now pending.
Recently, advances were made towards
a compromise, and • very unfair repte
sentatßn of the matter is given In nearly
all of the city dailies
Mr. mill er , • ding to act ibr the
lot owners, an Interview with Mr.
Vankirk, and offered to compromise the
suit In (bud If the Oominisaionentwould
pay thirty-five dollen for each lot repro.
...tad by the wiles In the suit. Mr.
Vankirk agreed to the proposition, if It ,
'Could be done properly and safely. To
see It It could be done, and If so, enter
into the necessary arrarigemmt, they
met at the oillce of Mr. White. Mr. Mil.
ler elated that the parties he represented
owned about sixty lots—some of par
ties to the raft not owning lots, but being
Baste of single interments. Mr. White
suggested that if the Commissioner.
would psy these sixty thirty.thredollars
each tor their lots,they would mast
linelY, in the end, have to pay the same
amount to each lot owner and as there
were three hundred and Men lotaeold,
arntat price the whole amount would
.be over eleven thousand dollars. This
he thought was more than the Commis
sioners would osjustifled In paying, and
perhaps more than that portion of the
property' would sell for. It waa then
=Tthat the price should be fixed

given out es the price told, so as not - to
Induce others to claim more than that
sum but that the Commissioners should

represented,lps dollars extra as a kind
of - bonus. TO &Mild:. White objected,
bemuse it would be unjust to other lot
owners, and besides -Involve the Com.
mluionsrs to trodtfl. Mr. Miller also
insisted that the Commtaloners should
pay the mousy bailers the bodies were
removed. To this Mr.

Vankirk did not wish to bind himself
absolutely to pay unless • sale could b
effected. Mr. Miller Insisted upon an
absolute agreement to pay In any event.
Mr. White annealed that if the Damage
ginner. did compromise with these sixty,
it would not prevent any other rattles
bringing a similar suit, and that, so long
as the Judgment of the District Court
stood, declaring the Act unoonstitutional,
the property would not sell to advantage,
if, indeed, any bid at all could be got
With them difficulties In the way, Mr.
White said, he did not me now the Ccui
missioners could safely bind themselves
abeolutely to pay any price for the lots.
He thought they could safely agree to pay
the expenses or removals in pursuance
of the act, but had better leave the guar
don of compensation to the lot owners
to the arbitrators appointed by Chart.
HA thought also that there shetdd be •

constitutionality of the Act—without this

The The following morning, after the inter
view at Mr. White'. office, the Commis
edoners submitted In writing three pro
position. to Mr. Miller:
First, They would proceed under the
Act to get lots in other cemeteries, and
remove the bodies, leaving the oompen

Third. If the lot owners would remove
the bodies themselves, the Commission
ers would pay ill ex pesussz, not °knead
ing twenty dollars for any one lot, mid
refund the original coat of the lot. In
any event the lot owners, or a commit
tee of them, could be present to see that
the work was done properly. Tb. Com
missionan would apply to Court for the
appointment of arbitrators In prinsuume

that all their pro ona have been re

requiring all the bodies already removed,
to be returned. to reef the old grave

The Commissioners have shown from
the outset every disposition paranoia to
meet the wishes of Ude small faction of
lot owners. The great majority of the
lot owners, more than foarfifths of Gers,
appear to be entirely eatiatied with the
Act cf Assembly and the course of the
Commissioner.. Only about fifty or
sixty of the whole -number—for of the
seventy-three names to the bill lu Court,
a good many had no lot, only • permit
for • single interment—eauld be induced
to lend their name to these proceedings
'against tne Commiodoners. And of
these fifty or sixty, a few leading spirits
have manipulated the whole affair. And
from the facts above stated the publie
can judge whether they have been in
