The recent deliverance of Justice Maybee, the chairman of the Board of Railway Commissioners, has drawn public attention to the cart> with which the Act was prepared and the strength of support given It by Par- liament in. the form in which it has now been given to the people. Besides better understood, the Lord's Day Act is being honored observance. Quite a number of in- stances could be related on Sunday labor and business corrected and given the privilege of the "rest day. These, instances are connected with the rail- ways, with railway construction, the business of merchants, farming opera- tions, and the work of other callings. In the City of Edmonton certain other parties -responsible for concerts conducted upon the- Lorrl's Day, upon representation being uado to thir-i by tbe officials, at once brought their recommending, and in accepting this clause, had- justification, is found in the fact .that Ontario -has such a Pro- hibitory, clause.. Manitoba also had the same prohibition'in its 'statutes -and-the metropolis of the Win- Kingston Toronto.

Progress is further anted 'n the could not take a vote upon the question until receiving the consent of the Legislature. That consent was given "to Winnipeg-only a few years, only about three.-or. ago. It is significant nlso that only. upon the third vote upon Sunday cars the privilege of operating in that city se- cured- time two munici- palities have had to approach the Manitoba for the privi- lege of'a vote'upon this question. The basis for this prohibition lies in the fact that the Sunday question is not a local one, merely, but a vincial and a national one. This lat- ter conception of its being natlona has been emphasized by the passing of the Dominion Lord's Day. Act, af- ter a judgment-of'the highest court" in the realm that the power or direct Lord's Day legislation lay with the national government. In addition, a parallel is found in the fa'ct that cit- ies; and towns arc not left to deter- mine purely local matters by popular vote. For cite but 6ne clerks who we required to attend to the business of the Sun- day maiK It is not difficult to pre- dict" ultimate issues'of this form of Sunday labor. Construction work plei of necessity: -Building "_ of "all kinds contract work-in relation to bridges etc., is justified by this plea. In the enforcement of Sundaj' laws, judges in this and other lands have drawn the distinction between, absolute and fact that tha people ar-j awaKuncti power of -borrowing money is the value of the Sabbath. Its worth directly determined by the authority is being recognized, not alone in the of thc provincial legislature, and not physical benefits it bestows on those b-v thc wish of the people. The attitude thus far taken by the Alliance in the West in the matter o Sunday cars is that, first, the Legis lature should satisfy itself upon rep resentation made by the' accredited members of a particular city or town that a reasonable necessity exists for the operation of street cars upon, thc Lord's Day; and that then, only should tho question be submitted for who honor it, but in the inestimable oppdrtunitj- it affords for the delights and duties of domestic life, and for culture in the realm of the moral and spiritual.

That difference "In many cases under the observation of-the Alliance it has that .by a little forethought, the employment of ad- ditional help, providing some storage capacity in manufacturing plants, much Sunday labor regarded as nec- essary could be avoided. If the plea necessity as frequently presented to prevail, in- time almost any busi- ness or 'labor upon the Lord's Day could be successfully defended. Other business calls for considera- tion. The druggist has his tion, to trespass fthe bounds confining his Sunday trade to medicines and surgical appliances necessary for the relief of suffering; and in relation to him thc public is most inconsiderate in many instances. Xot only are medicines asked for but ..lemttnds are made from articles of his goneral stock sold in addition to -thy medi- cines. Tim photographer, too, in some places, we are does a large trade on Sunday. In this province, as- it other parts of the west, the problem of dealing with those who wish recognize an- other day than. Sunday arises. Much sympathy we is needlessly ex- to comply are our aUzens call- the popular vote. The Restaurant aacl the Hotel: class of business, strictly speaking, is! legitimate upon the Lord's Day. It is in their relation to the business of the merchant that the difficulty aris-i es. The 'Alliance has advocated'as a I to gjVC Up tne business of their reasonable policy that thev should in! j- y ordinary calling upon our national no wise be limited in purveying to the boarding and traveling public in furnishing meals, but 'should confirm attention to that and refrain from selling goods to be taken off the pre- mises; or in other words that they should not do the business of a mer- chant on the Lord's Day.

The principle has therefore been clearly, defined and the application of the law to this class of business established. Generally in this province, with thc exception of the foreigners, merchants close their business on the Lord's Day, but we ought to have the benefit also of the j i restraint imposed by the Lord's Day Pelmatfer Sisters at Lyceum iiiomiht. ti.M, TSc and 50" 'Cemt earlyt rest day. And the fact that they come here knowing our national ha- bit and sentiment, and to make thcm-i selves rich out of our resources gests that in ordinary courtesy they j should conform to all our laws even I at the sacrifice of a i'ttk- in thc way j of industrial industry. i Turning to the question of ofMcial attitude in thc matter of enforcing the Lord's Day Act your executive begs to say that the Attorney Gener- al of this Province has taken the po- sition that the Day Act is in force throughout thc Dominion, and that, so loner ns it rejnains the law of the land, tho obligation rests upon him to
