(To the Publisher of the Maupiu
Times.) The advocates of Sunday
laws are inconsistent in their con
tention. To meet the arguments
of those who contend that all
Babbath legislation is an infringe
ment of religious - liberty, they
contend that Sunday laws are not
religious laws, but police regula
tions, or civil enactments; but in
their sermons and religious papers,
they acknowledge them to be
I'eligious laws to protect the sanc
tity of the day. If the history of
Sunday .legislation has any pignifi
cance, it goes to prove that all
bucIi legislation is to protect the
.'saoredness'of the Sunday institu
tion lather than for the benefit of
humanity; and a strong plea is
put forth that such laws are
necessary to secure one day of
red in seven for the benefit of the
laboring classes. Yet, if the labor
er works on Sunday voluntarily,

other forms of punishment; which
shows that the design in mipb
enactments has a deeper signifi
cance than the mere benefit of the
laboring man: The chief purpose
is to enforce universal rest on
that day because of its supposed
sacredness. By their course thev
virtually say, "You must do as we
direct; for we are guardians over
your moral conduct, for your
Sunday laws encourage those
inclined to bigotry to place their
neighbors under espionage, and if
they are found violating the law,
to have them punished; and thus
the law becomes a source of evil
instead of a benefit to eocietv.
And if the individual who violates
the law chances to be a person
who conscienclously observes an
other day as the Sabbath, the
prosecution becomes persecution
for conscience sake. The scriptural
command says, "Six davs siialt

but the seventh day is the Sabbath

The reader will note that the in
junction to work "six days" is as
explicit as the command to rest
on the seventh day. Therefore
any human law that deprives men
of the right to labor on any one of
the "six days" contravenes the
law of God, and is of itself a ser
Sunday laws are frequently

Generally merchants close their

keep open, those who close business

open, In such cases it is very

All Sunday laws are strict!
class legislation, and can not be
for the equal benefit of all the
citizens. For instance, those who
believe in the religious nature of
the day are inclined to want law
enforcement of rest on that day
but a targe class of citizens believe
in their natural right to spend the
day otherwise, but the law inter
feres with their natural rights in
tins respect. The Barber's Un
ion has been known to ask for a
Sunday law to prevent other bar
ber's from keeping open shop on
that day, because they might thus
gain a commewiial advantage.
Thus the law caters to seliisbjififis
rather than righteousness: but all
selfishness is sinj and "so the law
itself fosters siu. It would be
muoh wiser to have no Sunday
law, and leave every citizen ac
countable alone to God for the
manner in which he spends the
As to which day is the Sabbath
there is adversity of opinion. There
are thousands who conscienciously
observe the seventh day., believing
it to be the Bible Sabbath. A
Sunday law strictly enforced de
prives them of one day's work
each week, to which they are en
titled by their natural, God-given
right. Indeed; a Sunday law:
makes it possible for any one so
disposed; to enforce the law against
those who oonscienciously observe
another day; which is nothing
short of oersecutinn.- This l,
been done in various instances in
many of our states. .
Another indictment against Sun
day laws is that they do not make
people better. They inspire no
spirit of obedience to God. . There
is no power in them to convert the
soul. They appeal to the individ
ual only by arbitrary,- coercive
force,' whicli'is foreign to the1 divine
.government,, arid entirely destitute
of the persuasive force bd charac
teristic of the gospel. The rational
mind insultively recognizes that
such lavs are only human in their
original and characteristics.
Let all citiens whd'Ibve relig

repeal of the Oregon Sunday law.
