THE EVENING TIMES, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, JANUARY 1, 1300.
THE CHIMNEY SWEEP.
CruclticM Practiced I'pon Children In
UiiKlmid Tlilrtj "Veurw An.
(From Good Word.)
"Under the Influence of the new hu
inanltv it Is bard for the people of this
generation to believe the stories that are
told of sufferings inflicted on children in
this country but a few sears ago. Were
they not only too well authenticated we
would say that it v. as incredible that law
could hae been so lax, religion so U3cless,
and humanity so dead is to make these
things possible. At the beginning of the
Queen's reign there were many occupations
in our land in which the little ones were
ruthlessly tortured, but perhaps for cruelty
and hideousness this one of chimney
sweepers was neer equaled. How long U
bad continued we cannot tell, but it is not
much more than tventy years since it was
hnally stamped out. I remember when 1
was a boy at school in the seventies hear
ing about this aud being told that little
thlldicn were then being sent up chim
neys to sweep them, and it must hae
been this that induced me to try climbing
up and sliding down chimneys of a house
building near, to the great destruction of
my clothes and of less confluence m
my guardian's cjos bruise and scratches
innumerable on my body and legs 1 now
bee that this must have been about the
3 ear 1STC, when the question of Uilb cm
Dlojment of children was for the last lime
brought up in Parliament and the abomi
nation put an end to. A Parliamentary
committee had been appointed a few soars
before, and this proved up to the hilt the
allegations, of the friends oJ the children
legarding the degradation and suffering
of those employed in this wort. One fact
they stated was that out of SSI children
they had examined oIy si. could write
and twanty-six could reed, thougii iery
lmnerfectH
To Had the eil. however, in full swine
and unobstructed activity we hae to go
back another thirty jeer, to the time
When Lord Shaltesburj bioaght the mat
ter before Paihanient and earned on a
vigorous crubade until he induced the Leg
islature to pass the chimney sweeper bill
of 1SCO
In that year he stated in the Houe of
CommoHs that to his personal Knowledge
a child of four and a half was being mmU
up dail to sweep chimneys. He had seen,
he said, the little ones when oil" worl.
sleopins;. quite naked, on heaps of soot
They weie never washed, for their owners
baid "What s the good-" The often
uonlracted a loatbome and painful dis
ease, which v.'nt b the name of "sooty
cancer." It vas shown that oei all the
country children from four to eight eai.s
of age were constantly emplojed in thl?
work. The majority of them were orphan"
the rest bartered or sold by brutal patents
They had to be taken joung and trained
to their bideoub woik or pushing their wav
through long, narrow, tortuous passages
choked up with soot. To clean this away
they had to moe up and down by pressing
oerj joint of their bodies again! the hard
and "often broken surface of the chimneys
To prevent their hands and knees from
streaming with blood the children were
rubbed with brine before a M.ioug Are to
harden the flesh. To drive them up the
cliiniuejs when they hesitated burning
straw was applied to their feet, and this
was also found useful to bring them
.iround if the fainted or t-tu'-k in the fiue

still, walks up to the workhouse gate
whereon was a notice that aud OUei
Twist were ottered to aujone who woull
appi entice him to any calling.
Gamflcld lefiects that this would just
suit bim, and steps in before ihe iK.ard to
make his ofter. "If tht parish oukl like
him to learn a light, pleasant
trade in a good. Vpectable
ohiwbley sweepin bizniss 1 wants
a 'iwetitiee and am icadj to lake him."
The board thought a little "It's a naMv
busie." aaid one gentleman Young
boys bate been hmothered in climincjs

In the chlrably to make 'em come down

The board. howeer maintained
that it was a nahty trad" and seeing that
it was i-c thej beat down Gamfield to .
19 shillings, and agreed to gie him Oiitci
with that Such wero the guardians and
masters the children then bad Lstet in
xb earn book, we find Dill Sike aud his
friends complaining bitterly of recent leg
islation which had reduced th supply of
dtmitiutne children that wre needed bj
them in their "business" to put through
the small apertures of the windows to open
far theni the doors of bouses they mean
to rob It wat their custom to hire bos
from the master chimney sweeper at so
much per job.
Lard t"hti.lur fclireelf had a f-allj to
Inty many of tbo boys from their ma-te-s
that ln might reeue them and 1up their
otlucatei and set up in life. He interests: J
other in them and before legislation d'd
icnythtut, man) wcte saved from their t i
nble life But though there were huniai e
men m Uaglaad, it is surprising to learn
how strong was the opposition against ar
legislative interference with the childran't
lot. Petitions were sent to Parliament
againet Shaftesbury's bill The insurant
oarnpauies of London and Other ci'ii-s
cslatnered against it. Pamphlets and at ti
des were written to destioy it and it
needed all Shaftesbury's solemn eloquence,
becked up by the lerribla facts he pro
duced, to obtain a majority in 140.
But though the eil was then scotched
it wan by no means killed. It went oa more
s-eoretly. but now and again the pub k
were startled by hiring of a boy's deaU
in a flue. There Eeemed to ha a, recrudes
cence of the evil about 1872. for in that
year there were several fatalities In Oc
tobsr. 1872. a 1oj was sent up the flue of a
fernery in Staffordehirc. Not appea-ing i:
iifteon minutes, the flue was hattily op' ned
and the boy found dead. Soon after ai
other ,yory similar death took p ac2 at
Canterbury, but this time publii on'iiion
was roused, and the master was senteneej
to sis. months' imprisonment. This had
the most salutary effect. It was seen ..htt
th Iniquity would be no longe- tolerate ",
Mud other jnelhode had to b emplojeJ for
swoeplng chimnejs. The legislsUon of 1876
made that form of child torture and degra
dation a thing of the past.
