Whereas, the statement has been
publicly made that W. F. Stevenson,

Is charged that he appointed this com

It to such action as be desired, and
abused bis privilege by making an
argument before it for the Seaboard
Air Line:
Now, therefore, it behooves said
committee to set forth to the public all
that has ever occurred between jhe
said Speaker and this oommittee:
The.said Speaker has been in said
commnittee room to see the committee
only twice during the session. Once

The State Contains the Following Account
of Senator Ragsdale's Speech on those
Lost Bonds
Senator Ragsdale spoke on the same
line, and wanted to know wh-n the
last of this matter would be heard.
He hoped some means cru!d be di
vised by which the legislature could
be prevented from wasting its time
over it. He thought the governor had
wone cut of his way in bringing this
matter up in his message, after it bad
been twice srjudicated and refused on
its me .t. .lie thought this was a
scheme for some lawyers to get fees,
and that the real crtditord. if there are
any such, wMi not get more than $2.30
out of it. He thought the language of
the governor as to "repudiation" was
totally uncalled f.r, and denounced
the bills as an attempt at a raid (in the
treasury. He thought tne senate
should pass a-i act of some kir.d to
prevent this matter from being brought
up again. He thought it the debt were
a valid one, and satisfactory evidence
of that fact could be shown, the pro
moters of this scheme would simply
ask the passage of a bill authorizing
the payment of the debt. The legis
lature will not repudiate the debts of
the S:ate, and if ey.dence is show" of
the validity of the debt both houses
wil' pass an act authorizing the pay
ment of the debt.
He spoke of the reference to the
matter in the - governor's message,
wherein. it was stated that the refusal
to pay these bonds wou'd amount to
little less than repudiation, and said
that if it was necessary to meet strong
language with strong language, he
would brand this bill as little less than
an attempt to steal. Me believed the
pLrase "repudiation" originated in the
minds of greedy lawyers who were
powerful enough- to move even the
governor's office. He hoped that when
the matter was disposed of this time
it would never be heard of again.
He did not regard the claim an honest
one and did not think it should be
paid, and hoped the bill would be
In discuasing the child labor bill,
which is the amendment excluding all
children under the age of ten from
working in the mills, Senator Ragsdale
had the following to say:
Mr. Ragsdale said the question had
been fully dictseradtA
what is goddrv The
guetion that'confronts us is the pto
reetion of childhood in its very help
lestness. Is this not a proper matter
upon which to exercise the police
power of the State? It must be a'i
mitted thst it is not right to chain
these children to ponderous machinery,
and when we once admit it is wrong
we need not consider it further. He
did not see how any one who looked
at this matter honestly and fairly could
oppose this bill. Of course the parents
who wish to retire from work and
live on the earnings of their children,
and the mill owners who wish to con
tinue to omplov cheap labor, will op
pose the bill, bat the children have
not been heard from.
It is argued by some that if we pro.
hibit chi:d labor in the mills we should
also prohibit it on the farms. But
there is a vast difference between farm
life and mill life, and the two are no
to be compared. No child on a farti
has been hurt by labor, becauae he
does not werk all the time and hba
plenty of time for rest and recreation
and has pure air and sunshine.
If the law may interfere to prevet
cruelty to animals, In God's nam
haven't we the right and ought w
no to interfere to prevent ornielty t'
ebi:dren? Of course it may be profit
able to work these children in th
mill, but we sh-iuld not place cow
mercialism above ,humanity. Let th
senate pass the bill and send it to t
house. The house uday leave it on t
calendar, until next session, but
thought it best for the seate to pat
it now and it may pass the house ne>
year. He was not wedded to ar
-particular plan, but legislation on tb
iline is needed.

Mr. Bri an says in part:
"The bill has a double purpose-tO

SThere is no necessity for redemption.i
