Iti his plea for rest for actors ot the Shbi1atli. published in TIE SHOW 'fOtr,) August 3, Bishop Samiuel Fil- ltws of Chicago Proved himself to be a sincere friend to the largo aruty of pro- fossional people, toany of whot doubtless harbor tte thope that tOtto Sundatitty-closing law wtlih -t ishop Ftllows so earnestly nvoeatos may not oily be enacted by oery stato inl itht' I'nIion, but he univr- iT in ito t01 i. ,-I' ing 1t ist at tt it -ne, tr it hai he uli, place of amuSeenItIt ill te t'tiited: Soates were closed Sundays. ntold athu 1- Santdts wito now spend t OtI IeI S a1)1)totItI evenings at the theater, park, music litl or other places of amousement would be I-eprived of perhaps their best sourc of enjytn , while tle owneis of tt mtiusenent resorts affected would suffei no insignificant financial loss. But, ilI tt other hand, tte professional ptopl', whio at-c forced to toil datily for their blrad ouIlr have the rest to which they i-e entitled by the law of God and oature oin one day of act week, the sane as toilers in other fields of human endeavr I to close every plter of anouseiet itt lit- countr'y by tto operation of a utivt- sal law wtould be in the nature of a rev- olution not easil' accomplished. It is not so ntich because the managers of ptlaes of Public amtnuseient desire to k-ip them open Sundays for monetary gain, that the Sabbath is Violated. but, as Bishop Fallows points ott, it is itain- ly because the American peopl want no restritiOns placed upott their 'i'asontable ittsire to aiuse themselves as they please regardless of tite, date or playe. 'rlis being admitted, it is not the Iman- ager then. who is to be wholly blaied for the evils attending unrestricted Sitn- day amiusements, but tt, popli who ilemand and will find the means of satis- Iting their craving for enjoyment, ito matter wIat tle law may dio in the Premiiises. It follows, therefore. that a ititrsal Sunday closing campaign, to be su-cssfl, tmust be based upon thte pinciple of education of tt, masses o tHe imonal and Physical benefits to le de- iVo-d frot tto universal operation of a ,ot1lo~tht clIosing labw. We'e itt, ngers of various places of itius-itnet throughout the countttry to ti.t as a unit in the matter of closing ttitr iatos of busintess Sundays, no law i-njoining such a course would be ineces- sary of enaotitent. But in the comipeti- tion which rules ito this as in all other businesses, this ourse, Itowevr desirable it mttight 1,e, is problematical if not ito- possible. Meanwhil, professional people iut contintIe to labor as they have in tte plist, week itt and week out, vith- iot ri-aso fromo til. As it notands, the managers are oe-Iiess itn the prem- iso-s fmi without iserted action or pil- ie approval. no relief is possible. At-tor folk are not ungrateful, and while tto agitation in their behalf is 1bei tontiited i isuch able atd coi- so-tettiots t-toruileto ots Bishiop Fat- ltows, their hope of enjoying their Sab- haths like other people as a Veritable day of rest will never die, and otte day it may hue realized. Then Bishop Fal- lows and thousands of other workers in the cause of Itinanity will receive the heartfelt thianks of thousands of worthy toilers inl whose Ltehalf they tre work- itng -without tite hope of emnolument or -eward other than tle tribute of their own consciences, and the approbation of those whose interests they aro subser- ing.

A casual glance at the contents of ttis l inumtbr will tonvince any reader that THE SHOW VORIAD stands in t class bV itself.
