Commissioner A. C. Kugei; at the request
of the Barbers' union, Introduced an
ordinance making It a misdemeanor,
jiunlshablo by fine or Imprisonment, or
both, to do any barber work on the Sab
bath. The ordinance provides:
,"It shall be unlawful for, any person to
lie found on the first day of the week,
commonly called Sunday, performing any
of tho duties or services of a barber.
1'rovided, that this shall not be construed
as prohibiting any person from perform
ing such services upon themselves or a
member of their family."
Without discussion tho ordinance was
referred to the committee of the whole
for discussion. The penalty for violation
Is a fine of from tt J25, or Imprison
ment not exceeding thirty days, or both.
Nearly two years ago the barbers of
the union made a strong appeal for Sun
day closing and losing the fight before
the council attempted to enforce thp
ruling through the years with little success.
