with which the decision as to the win

From Newberry College.
Mr. Charles Pascal Barre, repre

the su'bject of "The Employers' Lia
Mr. Barre's speech is a plea for an
employers' liability law. After indi
cating the wonderful industrial ad
vance of our nation he shows that this
advance has been accomplished at the
frightful expense of the lives, limbs
-and health of the laboring men. Ex
-cessively long hours and the neglect
etf sanitary precautions have played
-bavoc with the health of American
workingmen. The lack of safety ap
pliances has resulted in an alariming
number of disasters in mines and fac
tories, as well .as on the railroads.
The respon.sibility for this deploraible
state of affairs rests upon the employ
ers, or proprietors, who, in their
greed, have refused, or neglected, to
safeguard the lives and health of their
The workingmen are demanding re
lief from the "inhumanity of thes pres
ent industrial conditions," and justly
so. The employers, for the most part.
turn a deaf ear to their plea. T.here
fore it will be necessary for the na
tional government to pass an employ
ers' liabil-ity law, so as to force the
mill. mine and railroad owners to re
spect the rights of the laboring men
to protection of health and life. In
almost all the European countries,
notably in England and Germany,
snieh a law is in successful operation.
We, as a nation, owe it to our iabor
ing classes to see that they are amply
