CHILD liBOR THEME
Discussed in Many Local
Churches Yesterday
BY EARNEST WORKERS
EFFECT A MODEL LAW IN DIS
TRICT WOULD HAVE.
Prominent Advocates for Greater Re
strictive Measures Favor Immedi
ate Congressional Action.
General A. W. Greeiy, chief signal officer
of the army, presided last night at the final
l>ubli meeting of the second annual con
ference of tlie National Child Labor Com
tn ttee, held at All Souls' Unitarian Church.
Addresses were made by Dr. Felix Adler,
chairman of the committee, nnd Rev. A. J.
McKelway, assistant secretary of the na
tii nal committee. Scripture reading by the
Rev. Ulysses G. B. Pierce, pastor of the
church, preceded the addresses. Charles P.
Neill, United Staios commissioner of la
bor. who was to have spoken on "Child
Labor at the National Capital," found it
impossible to keep his engagement.
Dr. Adler made a fervent appeal for the
emancipation of tlie thousands of children
ot tender years who. he said, are being
made slaves to mercenary store, mill and
factory owners. Conditions, though bad,
I owing to the complcx American industrial
system, lie maintained, have now a promls
| iris outlook. He cited the protests of the
I people against the frauds of the great in
surant? companies and also said the earn
est support of the neople of New York of
the Municipal <>wn<rshlp League is a sign
of better conditions to come.
Greed the Cause.
Tie said In part:
"The world has seen many outrageous
a. ts of man's inhumanity to man, where
in his wolf side predominated. We have
seen horrible things done, and in history
we read of the acts of desopts In time
of slavery, but never was there slavery
more cruel than that to which the children
?>f t he present day are subjected in
tiie daily grind of the mills.
"The cause is greed. It forms a new
page in the history of man's Inhumanity to
man. Men make arguments against the
abolition ot child labor. Toe, and their
motive for doing so is the same which
took the big insurance companies into the
limelight of public Investigation, with
s artling revelations. We are driving to
ward materia! success, and the/end is to
!>? gained with disregard of ewrj princi
ple of morals and ethics; the goal must
be reached, no matter what the cost. Is
this right?
"There is hope, however, and a number
of facts point to a brighter future. The
very fa'.-t that men are beginning to raise
the question of 'tainted - money' is a sign
! of moral betterment. The law will prevail,
and tiie twisted standards of mercenary
monsters shall not become general stand
ards. Child labor !g employed because it
is cheap. The only way things can be set
right Is by following the precept of Jesus
and adhering to the golden rule. Put your
self In the place of others. Would you Want
your little boy or girl to work In a mill or
< oal mine ten hours tomorrow? You shud
der at tiie thought! Consider the facts,
and beware lest you cause the little one
to stumble." -?
Child Labor in the Mines.
Among the other delegates, many of
whom spoke in the churches yesterday
morning and evening, were Samuel M.
Lindsay, secretary of the child committee;
Homer Folks, secretary of the X<;w York
State Charities Aid Association; George
Woodward, chairman of the executive com
mute of the Pennsylvania child labor com
mittee; Edward W. Frost, chairman of the
Wisconsin committee on child labor; Bev
erly B. Mumford of Richmond; Paul M.
Warburg, treasurer of the New York child
labor committee; Taleott Williams of 'Phila
delphia; Owen R. Lovejoy, assistant secre
tary of the national child labor committee.
None was more favorably received than Mr.
Lovejoy, at the First Congregational
Church, on "Child Labor In the Coal
Mines."
"Children are employed below the age
prescribed by law in every colliery investi
gated by us In the la.st eighteen months,"
said Mr. Lovejoy. "It Is estimated that be
fore the passage of the law last year there
' were not less than 10,000 boys under four
teen working in the.-coal breakers.
"These children are not stolid foreigners.
They are American children, though many
are of foreign-born parentage and live In
homes essentially foreign. As American
citizens, these little children who live in
foreign homes demand the highest protec
tion and the best opportunities our country
affords. We urge that such steps shall be
taken as shall exclude every child under
fourteen years from the coal breakers.
"To sit all day bent over a dusty coal
chute, Intent only upon the distinction be
tween a piece of coal and a piece of rock or
slate, surrounded by boys who are free from
the restraints of home or school, is an em
ployment for a nine or ten-year-old boy
that offers a physical and moral menace
from which noble and educated men have
emerged, but to which far more lives suc
cumb."
At the Eckington Presbyterian Church,
after the address of Rev. A. J. McKelway
oil "The Child in Our Midst," the congrega
tion adopted a resolution to petition Con
gress for the enactment of the proposed
law for the District.
A supplementary meeting of the national
committee will be held in Chicago Satur
day next, at which Felix Adler, S. M. Lind
say, Edward W. Frost. Graham Taylor and
Jane Addams will speak. The governor of
Illinois, Charles S. Dineen, will preside, and
Dr. Emil G. Illrsch will make remarks on
the "Progress of the Child Labor Move
ment."
Rebuilding Pumping Machine.
Tiie sand-pumping machine belonging to
the Columbia National Sand Dredging Com
pany, whlota caught Are and was burned
while employed In pumping out the colter
! dams of the new bridge across the Ana
costla river several weeks ago, is lying at
Dean's boatyard near Alexandria being "re
built. A new hull has been built for the
machine, and the work of placing the house
on it and equipping It with the pumping
machinery will be completed long before the
machine will be wanted for service In the
early spring It Is stated that the cratt
will be equipped with machinery more pow
erful than was In her when she burned.
Several of the large sand and gravel-earry
ing scows of the Columbia Company are at
the Alexandria yard to be rebuilt and put
In order for service again.

A
Quality of Beer Depends Upon Superiority of
*
Materials, Treatment and Maturity
Purity is a universal essential in all beers. The observance of
cleanliness and sterilization will secure it.
Healthfulness, combined with flavor and taste, constitutes real
quality, and these are impossible without the very best materials and
the highest order of treatment. This is what science and experience
teach.
Materials: To provide the public with a really good, palatable
and wholesome beer of the Highest Quality, we use the best barley
malt, the highest grade hops, superior yeast, and in our pale beers a
small percentage of rice. In all our beers we use the best and purest
materials, regardless of cost.
Corn We never use, although it is not excluded by authority, and
has the advantage of cheapness. We use no substitute of any kind
to reduce our expense. We spare neither money nor care to fortify
and increase our well earned and long established reputation.
Treatment and Maturity: We employ only the most modern
methods of brewing, and our present storing capacity of 600,000 barrels
is more than that of any two other breweries in the world.
These facilities enable us to age our beer the length of time
necessary to guarantee its purity and maturity?not in printers' ink?
but in fact.
Quality, depending upon the character of materials and the
methods employed, is the real goal for competition among brewers.
At this goal we have been for many years.
It is for these reasons that
Budweiser
The King of Bottled Beers
must and does command a higher price than any other beer, and at
the same time has a greater sale than all other bottled beers.

The District Member*.
"The fifteen members of the committee
from the District of Columbia, including
all the surviving Chairmen ?t laaugural

chairman; James L. Norrls, secretary;
Thomas W. Smith, John W. Poster, Ad

"The national committee held a meeting:
in the office of the Commissioners of the
District of Columbia on Tuesday afternoon,
November 28, when every member was
either present or represented by proxy or
letter. After a consideration of the views
of the members the following- resolution
was adopted unanimously:
"Resolved, That It is the sense of this
committee that It should represent to Con
gress that l? is advisable to change the
date of inauguration day to the last Thurs
day In April.
Sentiment Practically Unanimous.
"The national committee desires to state
that there appears to be a practically
unanimous sentiment In the country, ex
pressed by the governors of the states and
territories and by the newspaper press, In
favor of -the proposed change of inaugura
tion day, for obvious reasons; that a day
of the week, rather than a day of the
month, Is proposed for' the new inaugura
tion day in order to avoid the inconvenience
of having it clash with Sunday, and that
the national committee desires to have its
resolution considered on its merits without
being complicated by disputed questions as
to the beginning or the termination of the
term of Congress. The national committee
recognizes the fact that the discussion of
these questions has heretofore prevented
favorable action on the proposition to
change the Inauguration day.
"The national committee la very sensi
ble of the necessity for action by Congress
at this session. In order that if Congress
proposes the amendment of the Constitu
tion on this subject the state legislatures
meeting next winter may pass upon the
question."
Schooner Van diver Aground.
The two-masted bay schooner Murray
Van diver unloaded a cargo of pine lumber
at this city, and Saturday evening last, tak
ing advantage of the strong northerly
winds, left here, bound to Walkerton, on
the James river. Capt. Bohannon was an
ticipating a quick trip to the Jamee, and
had estimated that by tonight he would
have his vessel at her destination, ready to
begin loading her cargo. Misfortune, how
ever, overtook him, and the Vandiver had
but reached a point a short distance below
Alexandria when, in making a tack, she
stood too close into the shore and went hard
and fast aground. The northwest winds
made the tides low, and at last reports the
vessel was still ashore, with little prospect
of getting afloat until the return of high
tides- She is lying on soft bottom, and will
not be ilswage* to going ashore.
NO HARD COAL STRIKE.
Declared Operators and Miners Will
Reach Agreement.
A dispatch from Tamaqua, Pa., last night
says there will be no strike of the anthra
cite miners next spring, a tacit agreement
having already been-drafted by the repre
sentatives of the miners and operators.
This statement was made by one of the
largest individual operators In the anthra
cite region and Is confirmed In substance
by an official of the United Mine Workers
who is closer to President Mitchell than
any other man in the nren nization.
At the Shamokln convention, which opens
on Thursday, the miners will show a con
ciliatory spirit, which will at once be re
ciprocated by the operators, and a confer
ence will be arranged. The miners would
like to have this conference before Christ
mas so they might make a declaration of
peaee before that day. but It is not believed
that thla will be possible, as the operators
are not Inclined to move hastily. That the
conference will result In peace there seems
to be no doubt.
It Is understood that the miners will agree
to the present wage scale with certain modi
fications. The laborers will get increased
pay after April 1, but the wages of the re
mainder of the employes will be the same.
The union will waive the eight-hour day and
the companies will recognize the union by
entering into an agreement with It.
The operators will make fewer conces
sions than the miners. The only thing they
will waive will be recognition of the union,
and that only conditionally. The miners
will waive their demand for an eight-hour
day, for a rule whereby the dues for the
union shall be collected by the coal compa
nies and for minor grievances at certatn
collieries.

ANNAPOLIS NOTES.
Special Correspondence of The Star.
ANNAPOLIS, December 10, 19U5.
It was staled by a prominent naval offi
cer who has much to do with athletics at
the academy that either New York or
Washington is most unlikely to be se
lected as the place for the army-navy foot
ball games. New York is entirely too far
from Annapolis, lie said, and the long trip
would be unfair to the navy team. 11a
stated, further, that Washington would be
objectionable, no doubt, to the army people
for the same reason.
Ho voiced the general sentiment of navy
people in saying uhat Philadelphia was the
natural and most suitable place for hold
ing the games. Under the circumstances
the navy authorities are backward in tak
ing the initiative in regard to returning
the game to Franklin Field, but there la
little doubt that they wish it there.
Father Jeremiah McCarthy, a priest of
the Redemptorlst Society, died at 10 o'clocic
this morning at the home of the order at
tached to St. Mary's Church, this city, of
paralysis of the brain. Father McCarthy
was a native Of Ireland, and was about
fifty-one years of age. He had performed
nearly all of his ministry In Quebec, Can
ada, but l>ecame almost helpless from the
malady about a year ago, and came to An
napolis. Ills funeral will take place at 10
o'clock Tuesday morning.
It has leaked out that, aa the result of
a recent visit of a Post Office Department
inspector to the local post office, five or six
well-known Annapolltans have been fined
the sum of $10 apiece for sending written
oi first-class matter in connection with par
cels containing merchandise, upon whlca
only third-class rates were paid. One day
recently they were notified-that the fine
had been assessed and that unless it ,was
paid at once they would be arrested, in
every case the fine was promptly paid. In
one case a popular Annapolis youth had
sent a package of tobacoo tags to the man
ufacturer, for whioh he desired a premium
which was promised. He wrote the words
"seventy-five tags" inside the package. The
Inspector opened this and fined the sender
J10. His friends are Joking him about the
expensive communication that he sent?at
the rate of $5 a word.
Joseph T. McCaddon. the American six w
man arrested In England several months
ago as he was about to embark for this
country with the body of his wife, on a
charge of fraudulent bankruptcy In France,
arrived In New York Friday. Mr. Mc
Caddon furnished 180,000 ball. At the hear
ing the court refused to grant the applica
tion of the French authorities for extradi
tion, and McCaddon was released.
