ing letter from the Statea
ditor of The State: t]
our energetic and successful ef- a
forts to improve the city pavements o
have given us all an object lesson in e
the effectiveness of newspaper agita- d
tion for any needied reform. There- c
fore, I venture to ask for space in tt
your columns in which to call pulic t]
attention to the need for legislation in h
our State on a subject which more t
seriously concerns its welfare than any s8
material improvement. .
Those who interested themselves in o
establishing a free kindergarten for
te hildrnen of our factory operatives, ai
when extending the invitation to all v
under 10 years of age, frequently met il
with the reply that such children a
worked in the mill, and found on in- p
vestigation that many children of h
tender years (in at least one case 5 a
years oid) are shut up in the close s
atmosphere, laden with fiying lint, all '3
throgh the long, hot days.
Oe night last March, in company
with a party of strangers in the city,
the writer visited one of our mills
which was then Iunining all night and t
found many small children at work in t
the spinning room. One little girl i
seemed a veritable baby, and her b
mother, ou being questioned, said that i
the child was just 6, that she had 1I
worked for a year, and was then, to- I
gether with thice of her sisters-all I
under 15-working from 7 p. in. to 6
a. m. every night but Sunday. c
These are facts which have accident- I
ally come under the observation of one o
disinterested observer, and the -atural t
inference is that such car.tions exist i
to some extent in many if not all of c
our mills. I am cenvinced that it is ]
but necessary for such facts to be made
known in a community like ours in
order to secure the remedy. It is not
a question of sentiment nor of human
ity alone, but one of simple policy forC
any State to protect its future citizens
from the degeneracy which inevitably
follows such abuse of childhood. We I
are told that the managers do not want(
these infants in the mills. Then let(
them join the movement to rescue these<
victims of parental cupidity, and pro
pose, as their experience best fits theai <
to do, suitable and practical enactmenms
to that end. The effort is being matie
in Georgia to make 13 the age limit,
and it is obviously advantageous to
make the laws uniform in neighboring
States having the same industries. Can
we not then secure the passage ot a
similar bill during the next seeston of
our legislature, and so remove this
b!ot from the splendid industrial record
which South Carolina is making among

hat Winthrop's young women learn

f. earnestness that our girls resume
heir studies at the expiration of the
