WOMEN ID TENDER
Report on Canning Industry
in New York Submitted
to the Legislature.
AM3ANT. Feb, 12. How children of
tender years slave for hours In canning
sheds with their blistered fingers
wrapped li rags, a.nd likewise In tene
mcnta, making toyn, flowers and plumee,
and how women toll sometimes for mere
pittances in Industrial establishments in
this state is graphically described in the
report of the New York state factory
Investigating commleeion, which was
submitted to the legislature today.
The report says that cannora operating
In th rural districts never have obeyed
the state child-labor law, "because they
never have had to."
The "employment of mere babies." the
commission bold, ha-i been the result,
and It adds that of 1250 children found
at work In thirty-three sheds the eldest,
was 14 years old and the. youngest was
Ttfany of the cannc-rs,' the report ex- ,
plains, are opposed to tho employment
of children, and half of them do not re- j
sort to It, but "hb the canning Industry j
largely Ie devoted to the exploitation of ,
foreigners, the parents of the children
malce them work." j
Of women workers, the report says:
"No woman can work from sixteen to
twenty-one bouro a day for weeks, In
some cases even months, without perma
nent injury, to her health. Yet women
are doing Just thla thing In the up-state
canneries, in binderies and othor fac
tories, and in tho shops during tho six
weeks' Chri3Lmae rush. In the large
canneries, tho work keeps up pretty
regularly for a season of four or five
months. A week of 8u,H in on-i vase
1102. working hours is not followed by a
week of comparative ret, but by an
other atmost as bad. And the pay aver
ages 10 cents an hour."
The commission recommends the crea
tion, of an industrial board with 'power
to make regulations to fight such condi
tions Jn every industry.

Scott's Reference to Fuel
Shortage and "Failure" of
One Aide Significant
Special Cable to The Tribune.
LONDON, Feb. 12. Now that the
first shock of tho calamity to
Captain Scott has passed, pco
plo are beginning to ask what
is the solution of the mystery hinted
at by the captain in his last pathetic
story. Circumstances arose which tool:
bint by surprise and brought, about the
disaster whi.c'b ended iu his death and
the deaths of hit four brave comrades.
Tho utmost seererv is maintained by
the "Surviving members of the expedi
tion as to what Cnptain Scott referred
to, ami liieutonaut Evaus, the second
in commaud. has resolutory declined to
Hitow anj- light on the mystery at pres
ent, nor will ho allow the other mem
bers of his parly to explain.
Tho mystery which the public de
mands be cleared up is contained in
the following extracts from Captain
"We should havo got through in
spite of tho weather but for the sick
cuing of.' my second companion, Cap
tain Gates, and the shortage of i'uol
iu our depots, for which 1 cannot ac
count. The advauce party would have
returned to Glacier bay in fine form
and with surplus food but for the. as
tonishing failure of tho man whom wo
had least expected to fail.''
Mystery Only Deepens.
Vague hiuts which merely 6crve to
deopon the mystery are conveyed in
au intorvicw which the Chronicle's spe
cial correspondcut had with Lieuteu
anfc Evaus and othor officers of the
expedition on the Terra Nova at Lryt
tleton, N. Z.
Tho correspondent found Lieutenant
Evans, who is how in charge of the
Scott expedition, in the ' wardroom,
where ' bo was chatting with several
other officers of the party. They talked
for some .timo of their experiences in
their pioncor southern trip before the
final dash to the polo by Captain Scott,
and his companions who 'perished.
Thcao officers told of tho prepara
tions th'03' had made at tho far south
to receive tho triumphant explorers
on their returu. It had boon arranged
to give Capta'iu Scott and his compan
ion's a great welcome. Everything was
Everything was ready, aud tho choic
est luxuries on board the famous ship
were prepared for tho expected guests
when the Terra Nova arrived at tho
winter quarters of the expedition with
colors Hying. Wheu those on board
heard the party on shore cheering they
returned tho cheers, and the
men on land fully expected
to see tho whole party safely on board.
As they ueured shoro, Lieutenant Ev
ans shouted at tho top of hie voice:
"Are all well?"
Then it was that Lieutenant Evans
and his party learned the dreadful
uow3 and know that all their kindly
preparations wcro in vain. Jn tho
conversation tho correspondent learned
that Captain Scott was expected back
at Hut Point on March 30, and that
the part- would then have covered
nearly 1900 miles. Finally tho sig

of Tennessee, chairman of .the naval
affairs committee, and urged him to
endeavor to cut down tho bill. Mr.
Padgett called the Democrats of tho
committee togethor. but they wero un
able to apreo on any roduction and tho
matter was put over until tomorrow.
The economy .advocates, who are
about sixty strong iu the house, de
clare that thej- will filibuster und pre

session unless the amount carried is
materially reduced. Thoy will bold

Torch Being Applied to
Dwellings on the Ranches
. by Bands of Salazar.
Speolal to The Tribune.
EL PASO, Texas, Feb. 12. Unless
thu United States intervenes soon there
will bo nothing but blackened ruins
and crumbling walls to mark tho site
of the settlements in tho Morruou dis
trict of western Chihuahua. Starting
with the destruction of Co Ionia Diaz
by tho rebels on Sunday the Urn and
torch have been applied to a number
of tho ranch dwelliugs of the Mor
mon settlors in Chihuahua state, and
their losses augmented by the destruc
tion of the only places thoy could call
home in the world.- Tho burning of
Colonia Diaz was followed by the de
struction of La Ascencion, west ot
Diaz, by the rebel bands, who destroyed
all of tho papers in tho presidonte's
office, including the records of tho Mor
mon colouists and their deeds to the
land3 iu tho Mormon valley.
Ready to Cross Line.
This is following out General Ynes
Salazar 's orders to the rebel sub
chiefs to burn everything standins in
the wostcrn part of tho state in order
to drive all of the Mexicans to join
his army or starve. Tho rebels have
beon looting the colonies and have en
couraged the peaceable Mexicans to
take possession of quartors In tho
other colonies which havon't been
burned, promising them titles to the
lands and houses of the Mormons if
they would remain there. The newest
indignitvy has arousod the Mormon ref
ugees to the point of frenzy. The men
who have had everything they own
taken from them by the revolution arc
talking of organizing volunteer corps
to go into Mexico with ihe United
States troops should intervention be
declared and act as sharpshooters and
guides for the vanguard of the Ameri
can troops. Tho feeling against the
rebels, especially Salazar and Roquo
Gomez, is especially bittor and the
Mormons say they would like nothing
bettor than to return to their devas
tated homes at the head of American
troops and ronjt tlie rebel forces who
have pillaged their places. y
Follow Salazar's Order.
All properntions aro being made hero
for intervention iu Mexican affairs.
The troops on the border are ready to
cross the line at a moment's notice
and pinna for the entraining and mobi
ilization of the American army have
been worked out. Ono of tho first ex
peditions into Mexico, under the pres
ent plan of tho war college is to com
mandeer tho Mexican !Nort.hwestern
raihoad and send a largo force of
soldiers into western Chihuahua to pro
tect tho settlers from the rebels and
to restore communication between Chi
huahua and Juarez over this line.
Another expeditionary force is to bo
sent down tho Central to rout tho reb
els in that country and drive them into
the mountains. A third wing will go
into the Sonora colony country through
Naco and will protect tho colonists

Wnlle the bombardment was fiir heav- i

Ios3 of "life was smaller, Thie was du , f
to tho lack of any effort to force tho aa-

aro estimated at not less than 300 dead
