Congressman Cable's bill providing f.r
the adjustment of accounts of laborers
arising under the 8-bour law, which was
read in in the house twice on Feb. 1, re
ferred to the committee on labor and or
dered printed, is a most concise yet com
prehensive statement of the jast demands
of tbe workingmen who have so man;
years waited patiently for con2ress to
award them tbeir dues. The bill is pre
sented in full:
A bill providing for the adjustment of
accounts or laborers, workmen and me
chanics arising under the 8-hour law.
Be it enacted by the senile and house
of r presentatives of the United States of
America in congress assembled. That
w hoever, as a laborer, workman or me
chanic, has been employed by or on be
half of the government of the United
Mates since the 2ota day June, Eighteen
buudred and sixty -eight, the date of the
act constituting eight hours a day a work,
and b&s not been paid the full price of a
daj's work for each eight hours he has
been so employed shall have tbe right to
bring suit in the Untied States court of
claims to recover such deficiency; and
the said court is hereby authorized to
take jurisdiction t all such cases
without regard to the lapse ot time, and
if in the opinion of the court, he was
under the said act of June 25, Eighteen
hundred and sixty-eight or any existing
law, entitled to tbe full price of a
day's work for eight hours labor or ser
vice, adiucate tnem upon tbe basis that
eight hours constitute a daj's work, and
for that length of service tbe claimants
shall be entitled to recover the full price
of a daj's werk, whatever that may be,
less the amount he his already received
atd in that ratio for any fraction of a
day if, in the opinion of tbe court such
whs the meaning of the said act of June
25. Eighteen Hundred and Sixty-eight,
or any other existing laws and if any
thing is found te be due. judgment shall
be given against the United States in
favor of each claimant accordingly.
tKC 2. Ix-at n payment heretofore
made of a less sum per day than the full
price of a day's work as provided ia the
first section of this act, shll effect the
right of recovery nor shall any terms sub
mitted to by any such laborer, workman
or mechanic whether for pit Ci work, stint
work, task work or any other kind of
work affect such right: Provided that
tbe said court shall find that such terms
either in the number of hours labor re
quired to be performed in a calendar day
or in the rate established for such piece
work, stint work, task work, or any
other kicd of work, required the pur-
formacce of more then eight hours labor
in each calendar day to earn the full price
of a day's work, as set forth in
tbe first section of this act, and that such
terms were made since the passage ot the
act of June 25, Eighteen hundred and
sixty-eight, constituting eight hours a
day's work, and are inconsistent with the
first section of this act and exacted by
any offices of the government as a condi
dilion of employment or retention in the
public service. Provided, That all suits
under this act shall be commenced within
two years from and after its passage, and
any number of claimants may join in the
same suit, and provided further, That any
such parties as well as the United States
shall have the right of appeal to the su
preme court of the United States.
