Effort to Cripple Work by Cut
ting Appropriation Brings
URGES HIGHER RATE
The effort to cripple the Children's
1 uieau of tho Department of Labor
promises to cause the mot strenuous
protest before tin- leitIallc bill Is
enacted. It Is meeting with objection
lit tho House end of the Cap tol and
when it reaches the Senate will cause
prolonged dlkcuss mi a number of Sen
ators aie looking !! the matter and
will no't consent to e file Children"s
Bureau crippled and hemmed in so that
it will be pi actually useless
Tho creation of the (. hildrcn's Bu
reau In the first place v as opposed 10
reactionary forces In C'ongies-b They
battled against it Morously and lmd
much to say of "inlnnsement of State
rights." "useless expense," and the like
Opposed By Certain Interests.
Back of tho opposition stood elements
that favored the employment of child
labor and did not want the Government
to do anythinK to Interfere with it.
SDme of the Southern Senators, who
always get mightily aroused when
thero is any attempt to deal with the
child labor evil, were opposed to the
creation of the bureau and talked
fcbeut the "dangerous centralization of
federal power." and the like. In spite
of tho opposition, the bill finally got
through, and lllss Julia Lathrop was
named as head. That was in the 'J'att
Miss Lathrop held her place In this
Administration, despite efforts to get ,
rW of her by many of tho Democratic j
politicians. The attempt w as made to '
replace her with a Louisiana woman of j
comparatively little experience in the
work of studving tho child problems of
the nation. This attempt failed.
Now. Miss Lathrop is seeking to en
large the activities of tho bureau in
a. way that will make it effective in
bodying child problems. She wants an
appropriation of JIGQ.OOO for a general,
national survey of infant mortality.
The House Appropriations Committee
would not grant it. This Insured a fight
on tho floor. And the Senate will have
a similar controversy.
Lines Sharply Drawn.
It la clear that the same elements
Trtilch always have fought against es
tablishment of a Children's Bureau are
now trying to hold down its appropria
tions and limit Its activity. The friends
of -"lld labor legislation in Congress
ve the Importance of the work
Mias Lathrop proposes. They
e that the more light is thrown on
Jons In this country with respect
3 children, the more easy it will
get laws. Federal and State, to
ib child labor. For that reason,
Inea of support for child labor
ition and of opposition to such
itlon will ho sharply draw n In sot
the question whether more money
be. provided for the Children's
of the forces back of the move
to get a liberal appropriation for
hildren's Bureau 1e the American
atlon of Labor, which has been a
iter of the Children's Bureau from

One of those who appeared before Con
gress to urge a higher loan rate in
the District on remedial loans.

RAISING LOAN RATE
The Commissioners' bill providing for
a rale of i1 p"r cent a mouth, on small
loans is'Indorsed by the board of man
agers of the Associated Chanties. Reso
lutions indorsing the bill were adopted
at a meeting of the board yesterday af
ternoon, and will be filed with tho
Houso District Committee. Tho reso
lutions set forth that the rate permitted
must bo sufficient to attract capital
into the business of making small loans
on chattels or promisory notes.
The board agrees with the Commis
slontrs that the rato of 1 per cent a
month is not sufficient to permit the
successful operation of tho business.
The position of the boaitl is that the
poor man should not be discriminated
against, which will be the case if the
rate of interest is so low that tho money
cannot be furnished him
Attention is called to the fact that
this class, of loans are not negotiable
through the ordimry commercial banks
and trust companion.
