To the Editor-1 This question Is timely, from the fact that in some of our dailies la the suggestion that places of business be kept open on the Fourth a day free to everybody to spend as their patriotism may prompt. Yes. This is a strictly utilitarian age- utility and money. Make money Is the ar gument, no matter whose rights aro invaded. or at what sacrifice. Our businessmen, whose patriotism, whose sense of right and justice, go hand in nana, cannot surety encourage such a spirit of avarice that Infringes upon rights given a century ago to every Amerl can, irrespective of nationality or color. Let places of business be closed, and employes claim their rights, ana one ana all enjoy tula Fourth of July, as it closes tne flrst half ceu tury in the mstory of our evergreen city. Laborer.
