On recommendation of the CQiiimittoo

was adopted; "Resolved, That wo are
iu favor of establishing in tho Depart
ment of Justice at Washington, a
lalxirntory for the study of tho crimi
nal, pauper ami defective classes, it
being understood that such investiga
tion is a development of work already
begun under tho Federal Goverumout
"That such study shall iuulude the
collection of jurisprudential, sociolog
ical and pathological data in institu
tions for tho delinquent, dependent aud
defective,' and in hospitals, schools
and other institutions.
That especially tho - causes of
social evils shall bo sought out with
a view to ameliorating or preventing
Rev. James Byers presented a report
on TuuiH'raiuie, showing the active
interest iu thisquestiou by tho Presby
terian church. He called attention
to the increasing demand of tho great
triiiiHiHirtut ion coiuimnies that their
employees shall not bo drinking men,
Tho tendency is toward opposition to
the sale and uso of intoxicants.
Discussion followed the report Dr,
Hill wished we might get most might
ily stirred ou this question. Wo need
to get hold of something tangible. A
member of his congregrtiou in' Port
land, took a firm stand on this subject
there, which changed the course of
some oftleial action.
Tho resirt was approved.
Sabbath Observance engaged the at
tent ion of the Synod, report on the
subject being presented by Rev. J. H.
Burton. Various forms of Sabbath
Desecration were discussed hunting,
ball-playing, harvesting, threshing,
priino-drylng all these Interfere with
observance of the Sabbath. Rev. J,
E. Snyder of Brownsville said that in
the Willametto Valley, the most out
rageous form of Sabbath Desecration
is hunting. Mr. Snyder is a crack
shot, and enjoys hunting, but he will
not do It on tho Sabbath. Hunters
come out of the cities nnd towns, and
even from adjacent states; ssjcial ex
cursions lire run iu tho interest of
hunters on the Sabtiath. Mr. Snyder
did not object to men hunting ou the
lumbia Slough on Sunday, but he
docs not want it iu the Willamette
Valley. He said there is no way to
protect upland birds so certain as to
prohibit Sunday hunting. If Mr.
Qiilinby wants the birds protected, he
can do it in no Isdter way than to
have a law pissed to break up Sunday
hunting. More birds are killed on
Sunday than iu all the rest of the
week. Iu some Oregon towns all
stores are open ou the Sabbath, at
least a rt of the day.
The dairying business is responsible
for much Sabbat li breaking. The
rows must 1st milked, then the milk
must lie scjiarutcd, or skimmed, or
must go to the creamery and so it
giH'S. liusiuess or pleasure demand

Recess was taken until 2 o'clock.
