CHILD LABOR FANATICISM.
The News and Courier seems
to be shoved into a hole, by the
Columbia State, on the child la
bor question. We agree with
the Charleston paper in its re
cent position on that much dis
cussed question, but must admit
that the "old lady" has been
playing circus since last August.
The present month has been an
unlucky one for "the greatest
newspaper"-on Broad street;
the protest of Charleston's busi
ness men relative to the position
taken- with the Southern railroad
and the awkward exposure of
self interest, together with the
show up made by The State on
the 18th inst., to say the least of
it, brings back to mind the once
famous nick-name "Puffer and
The child labor agitation, in
our opinion, should not get back
into the legislature, because it is
only the precursor of labor
troubles. e question found
S into politics through zeal
ous and well-meaning people
who never stop to investigate the
practical side of anything and
who often in their good inten
tions force a condition hard to
overcome. It was fanaticism
which brought on the war be
tween the States; long haired
men, and whistling women went
all over the north and, from the
pulpit and the platform screech
ed into the ears of those people,
every whipping that took place
on a plantation, and pointed
pictures of horror to the extent
that the churches took hold, and
politicians fanned the question
of slavery into flame, which re
sulted in the freedom of the
slave, and many riches to the
north, and years of misery and
want to the people of the south.
The cotton mill industry, ow
ing to present conditions, fast
waning at the north and growmng
in the south, climatic conditions.
and the labor, are largely instru
mental for the rapid growth in
this section of the Union. When
we had no mills and the spindles
were clicking in Massachusetts,
we heard no voice raised against
the employment of children in
the cotton mills, but as soon as
our mills become active competi
tors, here come women writers
down, and the magazines are fill
ed with tales of monstrous in
humanity, inflaming articles,
teeming with the foulest slan
ders. The charitable organi
zations are enlisted to stop the
employment of childrenu and the
law-making power is appealed
to. These people say, "do not
-give children employment in the
mills," but they never say '"we
will provide schooling and sup
port for those children who are
not permitted to be employed in
the mills." They want the child
labor driven out of the cotton
mills, but what are these chil
dren to do when out 'of employ
ment? There is no law in this
State to force their attendance
at school, nor is there any law
which would prevent them from
going into other employment; if
a child is taken out of a cotton
mill, it can go into a cigar fac
tory, cotton seed oil mill, a sweat
shop or at any other employment
in which the hands of children
can find something to do. The
seed, against child labor sown at
the north to cripple labor in the
southern mills, it was taken hold
of and agitated by well meaning
people in the south, who are sen
timentalists-the humane senti
ment appealed to them, and
caught them. The schemers at
the north would have made no
impression down here had they
come out boldly, and honestly,
and said, "unless we can get the
matter of labor handled to pht us
on an equality with the mills of
the south, we will have to go out
of the business, or remove our
plants down south, where they
will be in the midst of the cotton
fields and labor." Their money
is invested in the established
plants, and they find it cheaper
to break into the labor down here
by employing a lot of sentiment
writers, than to tear down and
move. We hope our legislators
will not permit themselves car
ried off of their 'feet by senti
ment, but that, inasmuch as this
question is forced upon them
they will take hold of it in a
plain, practical, business way;
that they will consider seriously,
what is to become of the chil
dren, if they are deprived from
earning a support? Who is to
support them? Is it not better
for them to be at work than loaf
ing about in idleness? Are we
ready for compulsory education?
The Republican pla t for m

In Fossil Town.
it was a group of citizens
Discussed the town's affairs:
And some were young. some not so young,
And some of hoary hairs:
But all discussed with emphasis
-It was a way of theirs.
And some were rich and some were poor.
And some of high degree:
But all concurred upon one point
With perfect harmony.
--It was the very deadest town
That ever they did see.
And also this: "Now, what we need.
As ecrv man doth know.
Is some bold soul to take the lead
And to the others show
Some plan or other by the which
To make the old town grow.
It was a happy day. they said.
That brought all to this mind:
The trouble heretofore had been
That one could never find
A helping hand for any scheme
To which he was inclined.
Fi-r one pulled this way, one pulled that.
Each with a stubborn will:
And all the others did the same
On varying lines, until
The net result was always that
The old town stood stock still.
Now this would all be changed, they said,
And all would pull in line:
And things would move and things w'd hum
And croakers cease to whine,
When everybody pulled his best
And all should pull In line.
Now what was needed, only, was
Some enterprising man
To take the lead and show the rest
Solne practicable plan
On which all parties could agree
Before the work began.
Then up spake one, and he was sure
He knew the very scheme:
It was a new railroad, he said.

The others all sat down on him;
--It was an idle dream."
Another spoke of water-works,
With eloquence and power;
Another of a big hotel
For tourists on the tour:
One thought it might be well to try
A mill for milling flour,
A factory, and a bleachery.

An iron works. a paper mill,

A cannery, a pottery
-All shared the common fate.
A cotton mill, a trolley li ie,
A turnpike broad and long,
Were each proposed and each pooh-poohed
In chorus loud and strong.
They cost too much, no scheme would "go"
If it were started wrong.
A dirtroad. then? A Knitting mill?
A grist mill? A brick kiln?
-The meeting didn't care
To waste its time and money
On any cheap affair.
Each speaker had his own idea
And argued it with yim;
The others -couldn't see it"
And thought its promise dim.
As each in turn rose up and spoke
The others went for him.
-The group adjourned; and then again,
And eke with scorn, day after day.
All spoke their minds so free.

THE NEW POSTAGE STAMPS.
Reintroduction of the National Flag-Fare
well to the Washington Profile.
For the first time since 1869,
the post office department with
the issuance of the new series of
stamps now in preparation, will
make use of the American flag in
one of its designs. This will be
a part of the two-cent stamp,
which, by the way, will bear lit
tie resemblance to the one now
in use. The portrait of Wash
ington, which has long appeared
on the popular stamp, will be
succeeded by a photograph taken
from Gilbert Stuart's famous
painting. The familiar bust of
Washington, so long known to
the stamp-using public, was
drawn from Houdon's profile
cast. Let the public, then, soon
take its last view of the likeness
of Washington, which is doubt
less more than any other im
pressed upon the popular mind.
The Stuart picture at Wash
ington formed the basis of the
ten-cent design of 1847, when
the adhesive stamp system be
gan. The five-cent stamp then
carried a picture of Franklin.
The Washington stamp, with its
changing denominations, con
tinued to be based on the ~Stuart
painting, with rare exceptions,
until 1870, when a type of the
Houdon cast appeared upon the
three-cent issue. On the new
stamp the likeness of Washing
ton will be the most important
feature occupying the central
oval, which will be somewhat
smaller than in the current de
sign. Above this, in a panel,
will be the words: "United
States of America." Drapad on
each side, and occupying about
two thirds the length, will be
two flags forming a background
upon which the oval seems to
rest. Below the bust will ap
pear the word "Washington,"
and in small figures the dates of
his birth and death.
Models for four stamps of the
new series have already been
completed-the two, four, eight
and thirteen cent denominations.
All the designs are distinctive,
and are said to be of rare artis
tic merit. It is noted that the
flags, when brought into the
series of 1869, were used on a
stamp which the public rarely
saw-the thirty-cent denomina
tion. The people who write let
ters to the government have on
many occasions expressed a de
sire that the flag be brought into
use again. When the Columbian
series of- 1893 was projected, the
department was flooded with
such requests, and also in con
nection with both the other
World's Fair sets. Mechanical
dificulties are said to have pre
vented the earlier utilization of
The flag is a favorite emblem
on the stamps of republics, but
not of monarchies. -The Domini
can Republic, Bolivia, Ecuador,
Salvador, Uraguay, Liberia, and
Columbia show their flags on
practically every stamp they
issue. The IBoers used to bunch
their flags in the centre of their
stamps. The last issue of the
Hawaiian republic gave a promi
nent place to its flag. The mn
habitants of the little republic of
Hayti get a view of the national
emblem every time they fasten a
postage stamp on a letter, but,
the common people do this soj
rarely as - to keep the glimpse1
still somewhat of a treat. The
Cuban flag will adorn one of the
denominations of a new series of
stamps soon to be brought out
