CHILD LABOR BILL
IS DPIN SENATE
fiardwick of Georgia Leads At
tack Upon Constitutionality
HOLDS ISSUE FOE STATES
LOSE PART OF IT
(Ceatlaaed From Face One.)
Washington, Aug. 4. The child la
bor bill, on which debate began in the
senate yesterday, was up again today
with southern senators ready to start
a light on its constitutionality. Sen
ator Robinson, presenting the meas
ure yesterday, argued that scrutiny
. had showed the bill constitutional, be
cause the regulation of child labor
was proposed through prevention of
Interstate shipment of child labor
products. The power pf congress to
regulate commerce is absolute, he
x The bill will be kept before the
senate until passed. Thetc is no re
Hardwiclc of Georgia led off
attack on the constitutionality of tne
measure, contending the right to en
act such legislation was vested only
in the states. The Georgia senator
also pointed out that the senate bill
in his judgment far exceeds the limits
set down by congress and the su
preme court in the lottery statute,
which proponents of the measure set
up in defense of its constitutionality
and after which it was patterned. -
"The bill as it passed the house,"
said Senator Hardwick," would ex
clude from interstate commerce, the
specific product of child labor. The
senate amendment not only would ex
clude from commerce the direct prod
uct of child labor, but also any other
. commodity produced by any man or
corporation who does not five up to
a rule of civil conduct to be laid down
"I do not wish to be misunderstood
in this matter," said he. "I am as
thoroughly as earnestly sincire in fa-
vor of enactment of just, reasonable,
human and God-like laws for pro
tection of children as any man in this
chamber, but J say that the sole pow
er to enact auch laws is invested in
the several states of the union and not
in congress. I venture the assertion
that the state of Georgia today has
a child labor law better, fairer and
more suited to our conditions than
the statute proposed to be set up in
this bill."- ..
