(By Telegraph.—Own Correspondent."!

OHRISTCHTJROH, this day. A controversy regarding the most suitable day for observance as tho weekly half-holiday is raging with considerable virulence, and upholders of Thursday, the present day, are organising most thoroughly in order to defeat the effort of the supporters of Saturday to have a poll on the question. The advocates of Saturday have been most energetic in inducing people to enrol, apparently unaware of the fact that the larger the number on the roll the bigger task they will have in securing the necessary ten per cent of the total, in order that the requisition for a poll be effective. To-morrow is the last day for making objections to enrolments, and it is understood that for the first time for many years a number of objections will be lodged. The principal grounds for objections are stated to be that some persons have been enrolled who are only lodgers, and do not pay a separate sura as rent, and in other cases that young men and women living with their parents and not paying rent have been enrolled. It ia also hinted that objections will be taken to the enrolment of the secretary of the Saturday Association on the first-named ground, and if this objection be upheld a number of claims for enrolment signed by him will probably be declared invalid.
