Labor Commission Report.
Labor Commissioner Ryder has Just fin
ished writing the biennial report of his
department, which he will endeavor to have
In printed form for the legislature when
it meots. He recommends a reorganization
of the bureau, so that it wll have, besides
the deputy, two factory Inspectors, who
will also gather Industrial statistics, a
statistician and a stenographer, who will
also be librarian and mailing clerk; the
bureau haa a somewhat extennslve library
of books that Mr. Ryder believes can be
made useful where It Is now useless, ex
cept for merely office reference.
"These new positions. If created," said
Mr. Ryder, "will biing th. whole expense
of the bureau up to 20,uu0 for two years.
This Is a very modest amount, w'lien it Is
kept In mind that w. are conducting what
In other states surrounding us Is two
separata departments of state government
alabor bureau and an agricultural statis
tics bureau. Because of existing conditions,
the latter has been given moat serious at
tention, and Is now In very serviceable
condition. With two competent factory In
spectors, a man and a woman, the deputy
commissioner would be enabled to make a
much needed showing of purely Industrial
development, with an enlightening presen
tation of statistics concerning workshop:,
and factories, wages, sanitary conditions,
safety apllances and kindred matters.
These two Inspectors could also give at
tention to enforcement of the fire escape
law, the child labor law and the law gov
erning employment of women and girls.
Thus the deputy would be at liberty to give
close attention to the whole field of effort
covered by the many laws entrusted to
the bureau for execution and the statisti
cian and librarian could handle in good
shape the growing work In the office."
Pare Food Prosecutions.
County Attorney J. P. Baldwin of Hebron
has notified the food commissioners office
tha.t Cramer liros. of Chester, against
whom pnsecution waa brought for selling
misbranded and short weight oornmiaJ
puckdges have pleaded guilty and paid a
fine. In this case Inspector Vogel reported
that the cornmeal sacks found at the sio.e
of Cramer Bros., had been put up by J. H.
Fair of Hardy, Neb., that they were
marked to contain nine and one-half
pounds, but that they really contained
nine and three-four. h ounces less than that.
This shortage in weight which is 6 per
cent, would amount to 1,800 pounds on a
ai'.OOO-pound car lot shipment. This 1,8 OJ
pounds shortage at the price paid by tho
consumer would amount in monej to $40.50,
or a p ollt thiough the short weight trick
for somebody, either the miller or the lotal
cea.er or perhaps both, a profit by short
weight for meal that is paid for by the
consumer but never delivered, a profit of
v.M per car load.
Among a number of other cases being
prosecuted In Thayer county for short
weight, mill stuffs Is a case of graham
flour In small sacks maxked, to contain ten
ro.imla per sack, but nine and one-half
ouni.es short. This shortage would amount
to a short weight cheat against the con
sumer of Vii a car, computing the car load
at 30,000 pounds and the retail price per
small sack at 35 cents.
