TRUTH ABOUT TOBACCO.
That smoking causes diseases of the
respiratory passages Is a matter of com
mon belief, but there Is no evidence that
this Is true. A man who smoked
cigars a day might possibly irritate his
bronchial tubes In such a frightful man
ner that death would follow, butfI am
not dealing In this article with lunatics,
but with sane men who smoke in moder
ation and know that there Is a time and
a place for all things. Ordinary smoking
produces no perceptible Irritation of the
air passages Indeed, tho I-ondon Lan
cet has recently advanced the lew that
its effect upon them is decidedly anti
septic and beneficial
Hoarseness, which sometimes follows
excetslve cigar or cigarette smoking.
particularly In winter. Is to be laid, not
to the tobacco, but to the general lm
heclllty of the smoker. A man who
smokes In the open air when the tem
perature Is at 3 degrees, and thus In
hales alternate blasts of hot and frigid
air, or begins to smoke before break
fast and keeps his mouth membranes and
muscles of suction busy until he falls
asleep at night. Is certainly not to be
regarded as a normal man. and It Is un
fair to condemn smoking In normal men
because this one simpleton happens to
be Injured b It. If a man talked all
day or drank all day or walked all day,
be would be vastly more damaged Again,
he would grow hoarse much more rapidly
If he ate snowballs or Inhaled wood
smoke or stood watching a fire In a hay
warehouse. Indeed. I am convinced that
the smoke of tobacco Is less Injurious to
the air passages then the smoke of any
other substance that bums
That tobacco engenders a taste or
craving for alcohol Is a prehistoric fal
lacy preserved for us. In fossil form, by
the Sunday school tracts and physiology
books Against It lies the fact that no one
has ever produced an lota of evidence
that smoking and drinking have any
relationship whatever Indeed, It Is a
common observaUon that devotees of the
weed are often teetotalers, and that dip
somaniacs not Infrequently avoid tobacco
altogether. It may be alleged with some
reason that drinking now and then leads
to smoking If we base the charge upon
the honorable American custom of call
ing for a cigar when one s capacity for
liquids has been reached, but the op
posite transition Is omethlng that occurs
only In the pages of moral romance

The present child labor law of the Dis
trict Is defective because of the provisos
attached to it bj wa of Senate amend
ments when the bill wna passed by Con
grefs In Ma, IKS. Thee amendments
allow children of nni age to be cm
plojed as pages In the benate, allow
children of am nge to be emplocd on
the stage, and nllow the judge of th
Juvenile Court to lower the standard o
child protection by nllow lng children of
twelve ears of ago to ba employed un
drr certain conditions of poverty and de
Nearl everj State of the Union which
had at first adopted the povcjt exemp
tion clause In its child labor art has re
pealed this provision of the law as un
sound in Its ph!losoph. not only In
placing the burden of famlb support
upon the immaturo shoulders of a child
and In condemning the child already
hindlcapped by poverty to the ranks of
the unskilled workmen, but also as open
Inc a wide door for the viol itlon of the
law. This has been the histor) of this
provision in the District.
The cases of forty-one children who
were given permits to work during school
hours during 1900 were carefully studied
by the field secretary of the Children's
Council of Washington and In all but
eleven cases It -was proved that there
was no need In the poverty of the family
for the Issuing of these permits.
The permits lor tno employment of the
children of the stage are Issued by one
of the Commissioners, which means that
a subordinate clerk In the Commission
er's office grants the permits to practl
cally all applicants, though It is under
stood that. the Commissioners bav'c re
cently ordered that no child under four
years Of age shall receive a permit ex
cept In exceptional casrs. Two hundred
and twent-nlnc permits were Issued for
rjilldren on 'he stage during twenty
months from July 1. 1910. more than twi
thlrds of these permits being given to
local children. A very large proportion
of these children beine from four to
eight years of age.
"Five children, whose ages range from
elcht to fourteen, have appeared at the
Uayety, a theater which doea not have
women or bos under sixteen ears In
Its audience. Man) of the children sing
at out-of-door theaters in the summer.
The real attraction for the children Is
the amateur nights at the Majestic and
the Casino Theaters During one month
thirty-four children received permits to
appear at these two theaters. We have
now a group of about thirty children,
who might be called 'professional ama
teurs,' and, at six jrars of acr, they
have all the airs nt the old-time pro
Another abuse. In the District which
needs to be corrected bv a better law
and some adequate enforcement Is the
employment of children In what are
known as the street trades, which In
cludes the selling of newspapers. Even
with (the low age limit of ten years
Tot I.ob In this occupation, many chll
drea are found dally on the streets
a ounger age than the law alio
The selling of papers is a great cn-
couragcr of truanc from the schools
In still another particular the child
labor law of the District is below the
standard of several of the more ad
vanced states. The law contains n a?o
limit of sixteen for the employment of
bos In the night messenger service.
New Tork, Xew Jersey and several other
States have forbidden the cmploment
of bojs under tncnu-one In this occu
pation It should be stated In fairness,
that conditions In Washington are bet
ter than those of any city that has been
unesUgated In the East with regard to
the emp!omcnt of messenger bo s, in the
deliver) of messages to the redllght
districts Hut the evil Is great enougn
here to demand a remed).
The child labor law of the District
has become In some features a dead
letter for want of child labor Inspectors
to enforce It In spite of this fact the
Commissioners have recommended that
the two policemen detailed mtt child
labor Inspectors be withdrawn from
that service. Doubtless the police are
neeara eisennere. but there should
more than two Inspectors to give their
wnoie time to this task. A model child

This )ear observance of Child La

mons and praers In churches In the
District and In the States Both )es
tcrda) and io-day hae been set apart
at the request of the National Child
Labor Committee. Last year on Child
Labor Day .00 ministers delivered
sermons urging the members of their
congregations to light against the em
ployment of children before they have
attained an age and development which
would not be Injured by work. The
culmination of the campaign, which
had lasted seven J ears, was the estab
lishment of a Federal Chllds' Welfare
Bureau. Ministers are asked to discuss
child labor In tenement house manu1
facturlng and to urge reform In the
conditions of child labor.

Philadelphia. Jan. S. Ten tanks of
oxygen, pumped through tons of toal, un

of Joseph Foercster, a laborer, employed
at a League Island powerhouse to-day.
Stationed at an open chute through
which coal was passing, Foerested miss
ed his footing, and slid Into the runway.
A workman saw him drop, and called
for help. Tie coal was shut off from
above, but not before much had pounded
down upon Foerester's back. William
Hitter, chief hospital steward, had a one
Inch Iron pipe, capped with a piece of
rasieDoara to Keep out the gas, driven
through the coal until It waa judged It
must have reached Foerester. The
pasteboard was then punctured with a
llece of wire, and while workmen dug
the coal out of the bunkers, oxygen was
pumped through the pipe. Foercster was
taken out unconscious, but alive. No
