Sixty Hours to Constitute a Week's
Work in the Cotton and Wollen
Mills of the State.
The "ten-hour'' law goes into
zffeet Wednesday, the first day of
January. At that time 'he hours of
avork in cotton and wollen factories
in this state will be sixty hours per
,week, or ten hours per day. Before
,the passage of this law at the 1907
session of the ge;ieral assembly, the
hours had been sixty-four per week,
and the association of Cotton Manu
facturers had indicated their willing
ness to reduce the time gradually,,
reaching ten hours per day in the
eourse of the next two years. But
the sentiment in the general assem
bly was in favor of immediate reduc
tion, though in the act as finally pass
ed, the cotton mills were given twelve
months' .notice, the hours being re
duced to sixty-two per week on the
first of July and to sixty on the first
of January next, so that the mills
-ouid adjust their contract to suit.
The law which now goes into full
effect is as follows:
"Section-1. Be it enacted by the
general assembly of the state of
South Carolina, That ten hours a
day, or sixty hours a week, shall
constitute the hours, for working -for
all operatives and employees in cot
ton and woUen manufacturing estab
lishments engaged in the manufac
,ture of yarns, cloth, hosiery and
other products of merchandise, ex
eept mechanics, engineers, firemen,
watchmen. teamsters, yard employees
and clerical force. All contracts for
longer hours of work other than here
in provided in said manufacturing es
tablishments shall be, and the same
are hereby, declared. null and void,
and any person entering into or en
forcing such contracts shall be deem
ed guilty of a misdemeanor, in each
and every insVance, and on convic
tion in a court of competent juris
diction shall be ,fined a sum of money
not less than $25 nor more than $100'
or imrisonment not exceeding thirty
days;! Provided that nothing herein
contained shall be construed as for- I
bidding or preventing any such man
ufacturing company from making up.
lost time, to the extent of sixty hours
per annum, where' such lost time has
been caused by accident or other un
"Section 2. That the hours of labor
shall remain as they now are until
July -1, 1907, when -tiey shall be re
* duced to sixty-two. On the first day
of January, 1908, and from and af
ter that date, the hours of labor shall
niot ex-?e~d sixty hours per week.''
S(E,IETY GIRL WEDS INDIAN.
The Marriage Ends a Romance
Which Began Tive Years
I)enver. Col., December 30.--News
has been received here that Miss Cora
Marie Arnold, of this city, was mar
ried last Monday in Santa Fe, N.
.,to Albino Chavartia, a full-blood
ed Indian. The wedding ends a ro
Inanee which began .five years ago
durinz the moun fain and plain festi
vaI. when a numnber of Inidians were
Ibrought to the city.
The ceremony was performed b
ihe Rev. Mr. Rendfon, a Presbyterian
eIcergyman, and was witnesed by the
bride's sisters, Misses Lillian and
~Geneva Arnold, of Denver.
Chavarria is chief of the Santa
'Clara Indians, a tribe of the Pueblos1
in New Mexico. With a large num-I
ber of his tribesmen he was in camp
in the city park in Denver five years
ago, when Miss Arnold saw him and
immediately formed an ajttaofhment
fo- him. Aft:er frequent visits to the
camp Miss Arnold invited the In
dian to call at her home. She lived
at the time in a fashionable flat
with her sisters and her ~step-father,I
The Indian's first visit to his
sweetheart was the cause of a dis
agreement between her and the re
maining memihers of her family. Ob
jection was made only to the Indian
race, his character being above re
proach. In April, 1903, Mr. Wilder
jumped overboard from a steamer in
the gulf of Mexico and was drowned.
He left a will in which he disinherit
ed the present Mrs. Chavarria be
eause of her refusal to give up her
Indian lover. The sisters of Miss Ar
nold finally consented to the mar
riage and one month ago they went
to her to New Mexico.
Chavarria, is full 'nivilized, reli
gious, fairly well educated and well
to-do. HRe owns a large farm near
