pose to compel the possessors of tiie Win

OPINION ON THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW.
Attorney General Miller Called on for an
WA6HISGTON, Aug. SO. In response to
a request the attorney general has ren
dered an opinion as to the application of
' the eight-hour law. The attorney general
in his opinion says: "In view of the previ
ous legislation upon the subject, the
Alleged evil sought to be corrected, and in
deference to the legislative understanding
and 'purpose apparent in debate and re
ports of? committees while the act was
under consideration the act itself, with
out violence to us uiuuae, wiug t.w
ceptible of either constructiou I am con
strained to hold that the law, as to labor
ers and mechanics in the direct employ
ment of the government and of the
District of Columbia, is general, aud that
the limitation to public works applies
only to such persons as are in the employ
of contractors and sub-contractors.
Their Canes Are in Doubt.
"As to your second question, pertaining
to particular employes, I beg to suirgest
that its answer depends upon matters of
fact not statetl and not within my cogniz
ance. If the employes named are ordin
ary laborers or mechanics working for the
government for wages under ordinary
conditions, the statute would seem to ap
ply. At the same time, it is quite ap
parent that us to some of them it might
frequently happen that they be within the
emergency exception named in thestatuty,
and as to others, as, fot instance, sailors,
or others on shipboard, or teamsters, their
employment being peculiar, they might
well be he'd to be, as a matter of fact,
neither laborers nor mechanics within the
meaning of the statute."
