"SPARING THE GIRLS."
Noble Self Sacrifice of the Manufac
turers of Troy.
The New York Post, seldom in
agreement with workers, has the fol
lowing to say about the appearance
of a delegation of factory girls before
a New York legislative committee to
protest against reducing the hours of
"Members of the senate labor com
mittee must have been moved to tears
as they listened to the pitiful en
treaties of a delegation of Troy fac
tory girls to please not deprive them
of the privilege and the opportunity to
work more than fifty-four hours a
week. The manufacturers under whose
auspices the working girl delegation
made its protest rose to the very
heights of self sacrifice when they
pointed out that their own interest in
the affair consisted entirely in sparing
their girls the loss of wages that
would surely follow if women and
children in the collar factories were
not allowed to work more than nine
hours. Altruism could go no further.
"In an age that has carried the busi
ness of accelerating legislation to the
high point of perfection, an age when
you can influence a senate committee
by sending it 5,000 telegrams or 50,000
postal cards or threatening it with a
refusal of campaign contributions, it
is fine to come across an example of
the good old method of influencing
legislation which consists In bringing
forward a dozen workhouse children
to say that they like to be underfed,
or a gang of slaves to say that they
like to be whipped, bought and sold,
or a delegation of woman factory
workers to say that they like to work
twelve hours a day and seven days in
the week and positively dislike air,
light and safe machinery."
TRUTHS TO PONDER.
Constant association of the
workers in unions broadens their
minds and develops their Intel-
lectual power. The fellow who
bolts never learns much. 4
T It is the workingmen who x
stick together who achieve the
T victories on the field of indus-
trial warfare, it does not take
much knowledge to know .3,
enough to stick together. Still,
some do not know that much.
j Some union members love the J
union cause so well that they
will go out of their way to j
spend hard earned union wages
for the product of unfair firms j?
and then wonder why the union
cause Is no stronger. Jj
People who sit and wait for great
moments miss many wonderful small
moments, and they are to be pitied.
