ATLANTIC? CITY. N. J.. Mar JO. The
report of the committee on Sabbath ob
servance with Ha stringent reoommenda
tlona aroused an animated discussion in
the Presbyterian It rn era I assembly today.
Many ministers opponed what they called
an attempt to go backward two centuries
and Impose a real old "blue law Sabbath"
on the twentieth century. They were
. for a aane Sunday, they said, but not ao
atrict a one aa the report called for.
The barring of traveling on Bund ay,
buying thing because you happened to
want them even If they were neceseary and
having no hot moals ao your servants could
I eat waa declared to be absurd and the as
embly waa urged to Ignore auch "trivial"
mattera. Others spoke earnestly In favor
of keeping the Sabbath as the command
ments ordered and the report with tta
eleven stringent resolutions was adopted.
Among the resolutions tmbodled In the
report waalme that college presidents and
faculties be required to abolish Monday
morning recitation so atudenta would not
' have to study on Sunday.
It waa decided to organise Sabbath ob
servance committees In each Presbytery
to co-operate with similar committees
from other denominations and with atate
and national organizations In preserving
the Lord's day.
Public officials are urrad in another
resolution to do their full duty to enforcing
Sunday closing lawa and Sunday news
papers ara denounced In unqualified terms.
t'ltr of Waaalnatea Criticised.
The report of the Sabbath observance
committee is severe on the city of Wash
ington. "The capital of our country has no Sun
day law," the report says, "and because
of the uity'a prominence In our national
life, should receive our first attention. On
Sunday retail stores ara open in many
parts of the city, building operation a and
street repairs going on according to the
will of the contractor; newspaper ara pub
lished, botb morning and afternoon, and
are carried out through the tt aa on
. other days. Theaters and 6-cew.t and 10
Cent "shows and saloons are in lull blast. ' '
. "Social Sunday doeecratlon has also much
Increased In Washington within the last
eight learn. . Dinners, receptions, teas,
muatcaloa, golf, etc., abound, are elabor
ately announced in the papers, and among
the guests- raenJ.iond are constantly seen
the nams of people active and even prom
inent 14 churoh circles.
"Sunday la a popular dinner and luncheon
day in Washington society. Some Wasb
lngtonlana place the blame fur it upon
the dlplomalio corps, whose 'continental
Sunday' la gaining ground with the smart
set of Washington. Nearly every Sunday
half a dosan smart breakfast at the
Chevy Chase club and an equal number of
big dinner parties; also match gulf games
under the aupervlslon of the club."
Free Raw Wool
, Give Up Fight
Members of Committee Who Oppose
Views of Speaker Clark Agree
to Reduced Duty.
WASHINGTON, May JO.-Demooratio ad
vocates of free raw wool had completely
surrendered, it waa declared, whan the
houne waya and means committee today
continued the work of revising the tariff
on wool. Members of the committee who
had been fighting against Chairman V'nder
wood and Spew.lv.tr CUtvk to place raw wool
on the free list were aid to have agreed
to the' retention of a reduced duly.
Though the exact rates to be assessed
on raw wool and manufactured articlea
have not been disclosed the tentative bill
to be aubmltted to the democratic caucus
probably will ba a flat revenue measure,
with raw wool cut about W per cent or
More and manufactured articles reduced
from W to W per cent, dependent on the de
cision of the commission as to how low
the figure can go without aerloualy impair
ing the revenues.
A lively discussion of the bill Is expected
la the democratic caucus.

DENY I1UNDRMRUST HERE
Laundry Men Say Prices Are the Same
as Ten Tears Ago.
HOTELS PAYING HIGHER PRICES
Statement Made by Strata Sera For
merly the Lasndrr Did the Hotel
Work at Loee aad Had
Flat denial, accompanied by arguments,
la made by the Omaha laundrymon that an
organization exists among them to main
tain an arbitrary schedule of prices.
though many patrons Insist that a trust
It is pointed out by some of the larger
patrons, auch as the hotels, that within
the last four Or five years prices have
gone up nearly 100 per cent for flat work.
This la met with the argument that form,
erly the laundries did this work at a loss,
and that It was absolutely necessary to
advance prices to make both ends meet.
There Is no denial of the fact that the
Omaha launderers are organised, hut they
explain that the purpose of the association
ia to promote friendly feeling, to exchange
credit Information, to study methods of
elevating the standard of the laundry busi
ness and to improve working conditions.
In this connection an article embraced In
the regulations of the club Is pointed out
by them: VI t shall be contrary to the ob
jects of this club for It te arrange any
schedule of pripea for laundry work or
to formulate any rules seeking to regu
late the business of the plants) which com
pos this club."
. . Hotel Price Cio Up.
The hotel managers are among those
who have been moat active in their be
lief that the Omaha launderle are In a
trust, citing that four or five years ago
fiat work was dona for about 0 cents a
hundred pounds, while at prevent laun
dries refuse to touch such work for less
than 71 cents. Aald from the argument
of the launderers that formerly this work
was done at a loss and it waa neceeaary
to advance prices, they are expected by the
hotel men to compete with a local sec
tarian Institution, which conducts a laun
dry, paying nothing for help or taxes.
Concerning the small patronage, which
Includes the washing of shirts, collars and
tha like, George M. Strain, president of the
Kimball laundries, says: "Our prices are
the same as (en years ago, except In a
few unimportant Instances." He then goes
on to explain that while the aama prices
have obtained for ten years everything else
baa gone up In price: "Where we used to
Lire labor for 85 per cent we are now pay
ing 50 per cent of our gross business. All
supplies used by laundriea have gone up
ttbout 20 per cent during the laat four or
"The standard of work Is vastly differ
ent now. Some of the laundriea are about
t cents below ua on shirts. Their quality
of work Is greatly Improved .and during
the last five and six years they have been
bringing their price up to the standard,
although there are still soma t-cent shirts
being done in town.
The laundry business is the only one la
all these years of high prices that has not
gone up. At the same time we are paying
more for everything that we buy hexes,
tissue and varloua other trimmings to Im
prove the quality of the work and to In
sure its delivery in perfect condition. Tet
we are getting the same prices as ten
jean sgo. There is aosoiuieiy no uu m
or concerted movement on the part of the
launderers of Omaha toward a combina
tion on prices. Such changes aa have been
mad by one or two of the men have been
due to changes in the plants and the bring
ing of them to a atandard of price and
quality of work which has prevailed for
year in other plants. But this has been
don Individually and without any agree
ment, and refer only to two plants which
make but a few minor changes in their
Hats. These changes have been In effect
fur some time.
