Child Labor Lnw Is Passed
Washington. Tho Koa'tlng bill bar
ring from Inlorstate commorce tho
products of child labor was passed by
tho house Wcdnesdny, 337 to Torty-slx,
und now goes to tho senate. It im
poses heavy penalties for lntorctato
shipments of any comodity in whola or
iu part produced by children under 10
working In mills, canneries, workshops
or manufacturing establishments.
Where children nro employed nt night
for more than eight hours a day in this
latter class of Industries, the innxt
mum age Is 10 instcnd of 1-1.
Opposition to tho bill came largely
from the south. Representative. Webb

it was unconstitutional, and sought
