Measure la Restored to Its
Regular Place on the Legis

POWER OP OONOBESS
Washington, Aug. 3 The senate
late today began consideration of the
bill to prevent interstate commerce
in the products of child labor. The
measure was restored to a place on
the legislative program for this ses
sion at the request of President Wil
son, after the democratic caucus once
had decided to let it go over until
December. Southern democrat are
the only opponents of the measure.
which will be kept before the senate
until it is passed.
Senator Robinson, in presenting the
bill on behalf of the commerce com
mittee, told hi southern colleagues
there was a strong sentiment in favor
of it in their states. He read extracts
from newspapers in North and South
Carolina, Alabama, Georgit, Missis
sippi and Texas favoring child labor
Power In Congress.
Answering contentions that the pro
posed act would effect an unconstitu
tional transgression of the rights of
the states, the Arkansas senator as
serted that under decisions of the su
preme court the power of congress to
regulate commerce is complete and
absolute except as limited by the con
stitution itself; that the only limita
tion is the Fifth amendment, which
provides that no person shall be de
prived of life, liberty or property
without due process of law! that the
Fourteenth amendment of the consti
tution imposes the same limitation on
the states as hatt imposed by the
Fifth amendment on the federal gov
ernment and that if "the states in the
exercise of the police power can sup
press evils of child labor, congress,
through its power to wrolate com
merce, can promote thi nme end hv

All the member of Casement' fam

he wa registered as a member of
the Roman Catholic church and since
that time Fathers McCarrell and
Carey of Eden Grove church, near
the prison, have been ministering to
him. He received his first and only
communion at 7 o'clock this morning
when he assisted at mass in his cell.
One of his attendant said that his
land was most striking. According
to this attendant, the last word of
the condemned man, apart from hi
prayer, were: "I die for my coun
