EDITORIALS. topoaaoeooo The Gold Democrats in West Virginia will not support the free silver nominees of the Democratic party in several dis tricts. General Kitchener is experiencing Borne of that adverse criticism which has been hurled at the victorious American officers. It seems that fault finding is epidemic. The slayer of the Austrian Empress gets a life sentence and will not be per mitted to talk to anybody. Undoubtedly this is the most effective punishment that can be imposed on an anarchist. The silver Democrats of Maryland have nominated a candidate in the 1st Congressional District in opposition to the regular Democratic nominee who is a gold man. This is the beglnlng of what may be expected in other districts throughout the country before the elec tions in November, as the Democratic party is not willing to be committed to a gold standard. They are essentially a silver party at 16 to 1. The analysis which the Southern press has given of the Cuban situation con firms the wisdom of President McKinley in recommending to Congress inter ference on the part of the United States rather than the recognition of Cuban independence. Many of the most proml nent Democrats of the South are go ing on record in favor of the policy out lined by the Republicans in Congress under the advice of President McKinley in his message. The total coinage of silver dollars un der the so-called free coinage of silver, from 1792 to 1873, was only $8,031,238. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 1898 the total coinage of standard sliver dol lars was $10,002,780 or $1,971,542 more than for the eighty-one years under which the country enjoyed the blessings of free coinage. And since 1873, that 1b, from Feb. 12, of that year, to June 30, 1898, the total coinage of silver dollars has amounted to $497,692,446. That is the answer of the Republicans to the charge that they are enemies of silver. What does free and nnlimited coinage mean? It means that everybody will have his stock of the cheaper metal coin ed into dollars which receive the govern ment's promise to make up the defken cy of their intrinsic value, while he sells the higher priced metal in the market In this manner individuals control the coinage both as to quality and quantity, while the government should control it and say what metal and how much shall be coined. The government, in order to control coinage and circulation must buy the bullion and coin it on its own account. The opposition to the suspension of free coinage in 1873 came from the bullion brokers, just as the hostility to limited coinage at present comes from the mill ionaire silver miners. Mr. Gutherie, Secretary of the Treasury under Presi dent Pierce, bad ordered the mint to re ceive sliver from private individuals and coin it. The bullion brokers thereupon collected onr silver dollars, which had a nominal value of 100 cents and took them to the mint and had them coined into minor coins. Two silver dollars yielded not only four half dollars, but in addition wonld give a dime and almost half a dime, or about seven per cent pro fit. From $250,000 to $1,000,000 were made in this way. In the present day the proposition is for the people to authorize the great mine owners to take their silver to the mint and have it coined without a cent of expense. They then propose to have the right to exchange their silver dollars for Treasury notes. These notes are kept at par with gold by the government, and an examination of the Treasury reports shows that there have been redeemed in gold since 1893 Treasury notes to the val ue of $92,574,618, while a very much smaller sum amounting to only about $45,000,000 has been redeemed in silver. In other words the bullion owners want a gold dollar for their silver, but want the people to accept their depreciated silver for what it will bring in the mar ket. If anyone doubts this let him read the bill offered In the Senate by Senator Stewart of Nevada in 1893, which receiv ed the support of the silver forces. Several of the populist conventions have declared against the issue of bonds to conduct the war, on the ground that no bonds were issued during the civil war, and Populist candidates are telling the people that they refused to vote for the war revenue act because of this fact It this is not deplorable Ignorance it cannot escape the charge of being will ful deception. There were issued from July 17, 1861, to Mar. 3, 1865, bonds to the amount of $1,090,361,100, bearing Inter est in coin at the rate of five and six percent. In that time altogether eight bond issues were authorized, independ ent of temporary loans, certificates of indebtedness, one and two year notes and compound interest notes, aggregat ing an additional total of 11,190,561,787. 46. The issue of demand notes and greenbacks amounted to but 1456.252,858. 29 in the aggregate, whereas ttie total debt of the United States, less cash in Treasury on October 31, 1865, was $2, 39,596,758.80, almost entirely growing out of the expense of conducting the civil war. 1 SCHOOL NOTES. Conducted by R. H. Klnnlson, Important Change In the Child Labor and Truant School Law. Thinking the public should be con versant with the law relating to the em' ployment of minors, and the compulsory attendance of pupils at the public schools, we have thought it timely at the beginning of the school year to publish the law enacted last winter amending the former law relating to the employ ment of minors and to truancy. The amended act is know as the Davis law and is as follows: "Section 1. Be it enacted by the Gen eral Assembly of the State of Ohio, that no child under the age of thirteen years shall be employed in any factory, work shop, mercantile or other establishment, directly or indirectly; and no boy under fifteen years of age, and no girl under sixteen years of age, shall be employed at any work performed for wages or other compensation, or in assisting any person employed as a wago-earner, when the public schools In which district such child resides are in session, providing this act shall not apply to females work ing at household work. "Section 2. No minor under Bixteen years of age, and no girl under eighteen years of age, shall be employed at any work at night-time later than seven o'clock In the evening nor earlier than six o'clock in the morning, and no minor under eighteen years of age shall be employed inany of the places named in section one of this act for a longer period than ten hours in one day, nor more than fifty-five hours in one week; and every such minor under eighteen years of age shall be entitled to no less than thirty minutes for meal time at noon, but such meal time shall not be included as part of the work hours of the day; and every employer shall post in a conspicuous place in every room where such minors are employed a printed notice stating the maximum number of work hours re quired in one week, and in each day of the week from such minors, such printed notice to be furnished by the chief in spector of workshops and factories, and approved by the attorney-general; and it shall be the duty of every employer of minors to keep a correct record of same, which shall be open to the Inspection of the chief and district Inspectors of work shops and factories, giving the name of each minor employed and place of birth, residence of parents or guardians, and the character of employment engaged in by such minor, and such record shall be corrected whenever a change occurs in the employment of such minor. "Section 3. Any person or corporation who shall employ any minor contrary to the provisions of this act, or who shall violate any of the provisions thereof, shall upon conviction be fined in any sum not less than twenty dollars nor more than fifty dollars, or imprisoned not less than ten nor more than thirty days. "Section 4. It shall be the duty of the inspector of workshops and factories to prosecute all violations of this act, when the same shall come to his knowledge, before competent authority, and the chief and district inspectors of workshops shall have authority the same as is in vested in the truant officer of any school district to enforce school attendance of any child found violating the school laws, or he shall make complaint of such violation to such truant officer, or to the clerk of the board of education in said district; and all fines collected under this act shall inure to the benefit of the school fund of the district where the offense was committed. The State School Commission, in com menting upon the Attorney-General's interpretation of the above law, says, "First That boys must go to school nntil fifteen years of age, and girls (ex cept when working at household work) until sixteen years of age; and Second That inspectors of workshops and factories are empowered to co-operate with truant officers in the prosecution of violations of the provisions of the Davis law." The household work referred to implies that it is work for which com' pensation is rendered and not merely the assistance In home duties such as parents require of their children. There is ample reason for this state ment of the law in the Enterprise, as already this year our truant officer has been called upon to help some of the parents see the duty they owe their children in regard to attending school. The above law is a good one, and the attention of our Board of Education and of the Superintendent has beon called to its enforcement in Wellington, as far as it pertains to truacy, andit will be enforced. G00U K0ADS. TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES OF LO RAIN COUNTY ENDORSE IT' They l'ana a lteitolution Favoring a Special Levy for Road Building. There is a growing sentiment In Lor ain county that the county should not be behind other parts of the State In the improvement of its public roads. This sentiment was manifested by an earnest and intelligent representative company of men composed of the trustees of a large number of the townships in the county, and a number of others, who met in the grand jury room at the court house on last Saturday for the discussion of the subject. Three years ago the town ship organized an association for the purpose of conferring together in regard to a more uniform system of road super vision, and have since held annual meet ings. For the meeting this year, the president, Mr. F. D. Warren of Welling ton township, after consulting with othor trustees, decided to make a more ex tended movement for the subject for con sideration and invited the representa tives of the press and other gentlemen to be present. In response to the invi tation, Mayor Levngood and A. R. Web ber of Elyria; Mayor Fauver, N. Huckins and A. G. Comings of Oberlln, with the editors of the Republican and Democrat of Elyria and News of Oberlin were pre sent and joined with the members of the Association in the discussion. By section 4758 of the revised statutes of the State of Ohio, quoted in the News of September 23, and subsequent me- tions, "the county commissioneas of any coucty when they become satisfied that the public interests of their county demand and justify special action for the improvement of the roads therein, etc.," are authorized to levy a tax, of not exceeding four mills on the dollar after submitting the question to the voteis of the county, for the improvement of cer tain designated roads. It was along this line that the discussion was pursued, re- sultinein the unanimous endorsement of the project by the passage of the fol lowing: RESOLUTION. Resolved that the county commission ers be requested to take such action as may be legally necessary to bring about a vote of the county at the next April election to determine whether the county shall undertake the construction of free turnpike roads between the incorporated towns of the county, and upon such other roads leading to the towns as may be deemed wise by the commissioners.
