President Roosevelt Says
OF THE STATES
Do Not Do. 'Their Duty in Matters
of So Vital Interest the Nation
al Government Will.
New Yoa):, ,Fcb. l.vA. lqtter frorc
I'resldeui HoiY1e.lf'lo Mrs. Malic
Nathan, preslttont of' tho Consume'
league, wub read at ho nnnual meet
Ins of tho leaguo In this cltx Thurs
day. In his letter tho president wrote
that If state authorities did not dc
their duty In matters or so vital Itn
Iiortaiice as child labor there was u
eholce but for tho national Kovein
nient to Interfere. Tho letter follows-
"Permit mo through you to cxpres;
my earnest hopo for tho success ol
the Consumors' league. You aie doing
worlc that should appeal peculiarly tr
every good citizen, for those you be
friend uro Kiently In need of frleiuK
and ore not ibATful enoiiBh to stand
up for themselves. I am particularly
Interested -lu. .your idforts to Improve
tho. conditfonK' finder which working
Elrls do thettr.work In tho great shops
und I have, cjf Course, an especial In
terest In your effort to combat the
evils of child labor.
"There- Is much outcry, chiefly. I
think, from thd' benollclarles ol
"buses, against Interfeionco by the na
tional government with the work
which should bo done by tho fctntn. I
always would rather have the local
authorities IhohlsolvOR attend to any
evil and, therefore, I would rather
have the state authotltles work out
Buch reforms, when possible; but II
the stato authorities do not do as they
shqujd In mntteis of such vital Impor
tance to tho whole nation as thlH ol
child labor, then theic will be no
choice but for tho national govern
ment to Interfere. I am striving to so
euro either action or els a full and
thorough Investigation of tho matter
by tho authority of congress at the
present time." '
In her report Mrs. Nathan, presi
dent of the leaguo, speaking of the
Bweatshop evil In this city, said Uiat
there were many children employed in
such establishments getting 10 and 111
cents for 14 and 1G hours' work n day
"It seems to mo to emphasize," she
said, "that necessity of the league's
efforts to crush out the sweatshop sys
tem of work."
