WHILE this paper is being printed the hearing on Mr. Durborow’s resolution “to repeal the religious legislation pertaining to the World’s Columbian Exposition,” is in progress. We hope to give a good report of the hearing next week. Prominent among the advocates of unconditional and absolute repeal of the Sunday-closing proviso is Jas. T. Ringgold, Esp., of the Law Department of the Baltimore University, and author of that excellent legal work, “The Law of Sunday.” Our editor-in-chief, who has so often discomfited the Church and State cohorts, is also on the ground with his invincible logic and incontrovertible facts. The presence of these two men makes it certain that the report of this hearing will be, as Mr. Crafts remarked of the report of a former hearing, “mighty interesting reading.”
