tho First Presbyterian church in attendance upon tho meeting in tho in terest of Sabbath was a goodly notwithstanding tho extreme heat of the which abated but as the evening shades came The attendance was an evidence of the inter est taken in this all Important on thc part of our Tho exercises were opened by the singing of tho hymn Safely Through Another followed by reading of tho scripture by the from the thirteenth chapter of Nehemiah and the fifth chapter of Peter Swan lead In prayer and another hymn was George who was chairman of the made a few He said that the movement of Sabbath observance was in vestigated by the Methodist brethren across the way and tonight In utter disre gard of the call for a union meet ins they were holding their regular evening ser vice foot This he pointed out as a for without unity much progress cannot be He said the first thing on tho program was an address by the was mistake for he Was notgoing to make any He said It was nothing for us to observe the In all Christian families it is taught to tho children to Remember the Sabbath to keep it We did that from the and it would seem that there should be no need for this But there are those among always have been in ho are now and always will bo in ho who do not observe this Either they were not taught it when roung or their environments in later life jave not led them to keep the We keep churches all over the tho state and the country for tho purpose of gathering in the Tho world Is not any worse than It was 25 or 30 years I remember some forty years ago when the matter of running rail road trains on the Sabbath was under consideration and there was law adopted all over the country that they should not run heir trains on the Sabbath and some they were prosecuted for so n those days there was an open park on West Hill where people spent Sun day in carousing and In those days tho stores were Today is no park but the stores are open it seems to me tiiat what we ought to fight first is the open On Sunday morning the clothing stores and a num ber of other kind of stores are always You go to one merchant and say why dont you keep your store closed on Sunday He I will If the rest will you go to he I will if tho rest and so you go the all will if the test There is a law on this subject and Christian people should see to it that it is The laws on the statute book of Iowa provide that no busncss shall be done on the Sabbath It would o a better way to them up by c moral There are a great many Christian people who do not open their stores on but many do and will continue to do The rincipal part of this movement is to iavo an We must aim at some We must not only manufacture niblic but a committee should 0 appointed to wait on these men and ask them to refrain from opening their stores on Sunday and If they fail to com point out to them the law of this business must be closed on tho law of Iowa requires if rou do not comply you will bo rst try moral then the Thirty years ago tho saloons were closed on tho Sabbath although the law now is much stronger than it was Tho law says all cafes shall close at on Saturday night and remain closed intil Monday but lam told that this is not the state of affairs in Burling A few weeks ago an order was issued this f read it carefully to see if hero was anything between the There it was in strong I alkcd with two or three saloon men a ew days after that and asked them what they were going to do about They said that dont mean anything George Duncan said I but Mayor Duncan said But they It is not intended that we should obey it it will soon flow and I think from what I see that it did soon flow It is our place to see that it docs mean Wewant Sabbath observ ance as near as we can get We can not have It unless we all unite to that that it shall be Lane here introduced the who began his address by saying hat If a resolution should bo brought jefore us resolving that the promoters of Sabbath observance should hold long con service when the thermometer registered 95 degrees in his present physical would not take an affirmative Sonic six weeks said your in the person of its waited upon me and requested me to address the citizens of Burlington at a union mass on the subject of Sab bath 1 told that chairman that I thought that some of the older pastors of tho city who have touched a hundred where I have touched one should bo the first to open fire from the batteries upon thc present usages of tho Sabbath I am not hero to say anything now to any person is this I am not talking to atheists who believe there is no 1 am not speaking to infidels who are doubtful as to the teachings of tho I am not addressing dullards whose intellects are but I am speaking to men little children whose nursery walls were hung with pictures taken from tho Bible old Noah and his young David and his tho old David with his Absalom hanging in a tree and tho attempt of Peter to walk upon the I am not speaking to people who are not cognizant of the fact that God is a God of love If every one present were to go and look carefully along the walls of your you would find hero and there and yonder on all your heart pictures that tell you that God is a God of I am not hero to entertain and I am not here to but I am here to clinch that Knowlego that vou have unto yourj I am here to make what ou No ques tion of the present no problem Which confronts pulpit and the is of more importance than this question of Sabbath and yet no question it less often touched upon by the pulpit than this And this is due to the fact that preachers do not know what to preach I do not believ e there is a m this 01 in the who claims that wo ought to have tho old Jew ish in this nineteenth cen tury 1 do not believe there is man who would stand here and saj that vv e must hav o the Sabbath oi tho Puritans Do not misunderstand me Puritanism gave us good citizens Puritanism gav o us good soldiers who fought bravelj It has been a greai blessing to this great nation of ours In so farjis puritanism believes in in so far as it believes in in so far as it believes so far is puritanism good medicine for us of tho nineteenth In this respect it is taking a dominating hold upon oar national life I that this national life begin nlng to believe more in It Is be glnnlngmoro to Believe in reality Tho by when a nar hollowchested rellgionrtakes any stand in the Thlsactlon Is nothing more or nothing less tho uplifting of tho I say we do not want the Puritanic dont want you to look at this question scrupulously I want yon to look this question There Is a wide difference between the twoIf my eye pains my eye is out You must not Judge of the goodness of tho eye by its smarts or by its but by Its farseeing So you must not judge conscience by its stings and but by its of leading aud guiding men up heavenward and Scru pulousness is whining child that goes about what must I do to avoid the rebuke of Conscious ness Is a happy child that goes about what shall I render unto the Lord for all his You see the difference between conscientiousness and We do not want the Sabbath nor do wo want the kind of religion

Pharisees has been coming down through all the It is wherever there is wherever ihcre is then I want you to enow ceremony has no It is a principle that overcaps all littlenarrow rules of We must have heart Talk about this orthat or other man I want you to know above everything in all this ligh abovo this Sabbath high above Is and every law is little in comparison with the law that man shall and

full text of the eto Is as follows MAYOHS AUGUST u the Honorable Meinbers uf tnt City Council Assembled GENTLEMEN 1 herewith return without mv approval Alderman Epsteins resolution For several years a controversy las existed between the city of Burlington arid tho Burllntrton Water and Tbe city has been willingto do anything provided for in the ordinance to ob aln an extension of the mains so as to supply be Inhabitants with and Sold company Is not furnishing uch a quality of water as is provided for In aid ordinance but is at this time and has for everal years furnished water unfit forprivate therefore That suit be brought against said company to determine the rights ot the city to uive necessary extensions made by the com and also to compel sold company to fur nish the city and inhabitants a good quality of vater nud in stating my reasons for this action 1 leave to impress upon you he gravity and importance of the step which will take if you pursue the course marked out by this It is of course a decla ration of war on the partv of the City which gives the Water Company the advantage of acting on the defensive and places upon us the responsibility of carrying tbe contest through o a successful Issue a responsibility which taxpayers and people of this city will not be slow to call us most strictly to answer The demand for Improvement In the water service of the city and for such change in the ixtstingordinances as urenecessary to meet the requirements of the Increased population and the extent of the Burlington of today over that of twelve or fifteen years when the water works were first is not prop erlylmet by us when we fail to afford Immedi ite relief by exerting ourselves to effect some tmicablc arrangement with the water com pany by which the people can be speedily sup tiled with an abundance oC pure It has een openly charged that there are some per sons In the community who seem to take great merest in what is known as the water works and who chum to have the interests if the city very deeply at who in reality wish to keep alive and prolong the contention between the city md the water with the hope that eventually they may derive from it some per sonal How true this Is 1 do not pretend to but 1 do know that what the people want Is a supply of pure filtered water and not a perpetual tuss as to how it is to be and I also feel satisfied It the pres ent disagreement were between two business men and two citizens instead ot between the city and the water company that means would mg ago have been found to settle the dfficul jr without resort to litigation or to It S true that an able committee of the council has conferred with the officials of the water company and has so far failed to arrive at an agreement with as tothe proper method of Improving the water service of the city but it cannot be slid at the present time that such an agreement cannot be arrived at or hat every means of adjustment of the pend ing but a resort to has truthfully and fairly said I cannot give my approval to a resolution which will plunge this city Into an expensive and tedious legal contest the end ot which none of us may live to and which while It continues will give the water company every excuse for doing noth ing to Improve Its and will paralyze all progress and prevent abso lutely for a long time any relief whatever from tho insufficiency and Impurity of th water supply of this A further arid very serious objection in my mlnd to the action ot the council upon this resolution is the fact go far as lam tho authorized legal adviser of the city has not recommended this course nor made any report to us as to In his the final outcome of the proposed litigation would or what rights the cltv not now con ceded by the water will be established or confirmed In this Caw nulls are at the best u ncertain in their results and for us to rush Into a contest ot this without being advised to do so by tho city solicitor and a fair prospect of suc cess seems to me tho height of folly and a course which none of us would pursue in our private affairs our own in stead ot those of the were at I am gentlemen of the to see that tho step proposed by this resolution can result In any good to the ItwiUcer tainly entail a great which the state of our finances will not and endless which the people do noi want in this It is I in formed by that the city is thepartner or Joint owner with the water company in its business and 1C this Is true or should be established to be by tbe proposet litigation itwould follow that whatever ex pense or loss was Incurred by thowatercom pony in tho contest would haveto be shared by the city In an amount proportionate to Its so If after a longstruggle the city should be successful In tho tho ad vantage thus gained would be whileIf on the other hand it be defeated we should ba entirely at the mercy of the water and all hope of a compromise on any terms favorable tothe city would be a
