Mary Connors Attacks the
Sunday Closing Ordinance
"Selling groceries is( a work of
necessity and charity," maintains
Mary Connors in her petition for an
injunction to prevent the enforcement
of the Sunday ordinance, passed by
the city council. "The pretended
ordinance," the petition says, "affects
more than 300 grocery and meat
stores in Omalia ana is oppressive,
unlawful, unreasonable, prejudiced
and discriminates unjustly against the
plaintiff and violates her constitu
tional rights as a business woman,"
says the petition. She denies the au
thority of the commissioners to enact
or enforce such an ordinance.
The plaintiif quotes the state law
providing a fine tor working on Sun
day, in which works of necessity
and charity are excepted. She main
tains that selling groceries certainly
comes under the exceptions, adding
that "it preserves the health and well
being of the community, Sundays as
well as week days." Besides, she
charges that the candy slores, cigar
stores, fruit stands and soda fountains
are allowed to operate on Sun
days under the ordinance closing the
grocery store and meat markets. She
asks that the city officials be restrain
ed from closinz her store and prose
cuting her under the ordinance.
