THEIR TOPIC. Factory Inspector Ward and his Deputies Conferred with Govenor’s Secretary. ORPHANS ^ PLICHT. The Act Does not Make Provisions by Which Orphans can be Employed and Department is Powerless to Help Them —Law is Generally Observed—Will be Enforced. Trenton, Sept, 24.—The operation of the new child labor law, which took effect on September 1, and the more rigid enforcement of the laws relating to factories and workshops was the subject of the conference at the State house at which were present John G. Ward, State factory inspect or; John L. Swayze, private secretary to Governor Murphy and Deputy Factory Inspector William H. Dodd, of Jersey Uity; Heber wells, oi rater son; William B. Tucker, of Elizabeth; William H. Oonkiin, of Newark, anil Joseph Milbnrn, of Trenton. The conference lasted all ( day and every phase of the factory laws was taken up and discussed in detail. The child labor law of last winter raised the minimum age of employ ment for boys from twelve to four teen years and made it correspond with the minimum age at which girls might legally be employed in factories. Reports were received from eacli of the deputies yesterday which indicate that in the main manufacturers are disposed to observe the law voluntar ily or at least to comply with orders issued by the factory department when warned of violations. During the three weeks in which the new law has been in force, between 150 and 200 children, whose cases havo come directly to tho attention of the depart ment, have been discharged, while the department believes that several hundred have been laid off without notification. In Trenton alone about 100 children have been laid off in thj^S Weeks. JFhe failure of the new law to make /ny provision by which orphan chil ^wreu may obtain employment in fac Thudes have evoked a storm of opposi tn!^ to the measure. Every one of the deputy inspectors reported cases in which the utmost hardships had been worked by the abolition of the orphan’s certificate. The new law prohibits orphans from being employ ed in factories, but fails to make any other provision for their support, and the department itself is powerless to render any assistance.

Great Solemn Fast of Day of Atonement will Be Observed Next We 'nesda y All over the world the shofar was sounded last Monday. It was a trumpet oall to the Jews. To them it told its old, old story of the advent of Rosn Hosana, the JewishJ New Year, and for them it marked the first of ton days of fasting, prayer and oharity, which precede the great solemn fast of Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, which commences at sunset next Wednesday. It is no new thing, this blowing of the shofar, or rams’ horn. Thousands of years ago it was sounded in the temple, and then, as now, no single rite in the service was more solemn. In the days preceding the destruc tion of the temple, the shofar was blown by the priests. It was their custom to blow trumpets lor the pur pose of calling the people together for a battle, a journey or a holiday. Tilings have long since changed, how ever, and for years the sliofar had not been sounded except on the Day of Atonement, or the _Rosh Hoshana. It is probable because the Jewish Now Year is called Tom Truah—day of blowing—in the Biblo, that tlio shofar is sounded on the Rosh Hoshana. (Tninis AKiiliut Vein-; «fh. CARACAS, Venezuela.

PUBLIC OPINION Editor Evening News: Will you allow me the use of the News to call the attention of those in authority to a dangerous building on King street adjoining No. 1 school. Heartloss is the man who passed that way and realizes the situation and is not concerned, when he sees hundreds of children playing at the feet and in the shadow of this monstrous death trap. Great would be the complaint from all parts of this city could the mothers and fathers of the ohildren see the danger. Had the wind of last week’s storm been from the southwest instead of the northeast, the building with its heavy load of iron machinery would be piled up in the school and adjoining yards, and possibly, many lives would have passed away with it. The remedy for the removal of the danger is simple. Compel the re movai oi uio six men prop wnion holds the building up, from the sohool yard, and tho building will tumble over. R.

So the >oung fellows had rather a hard time of it. One day a particularly reckless chap sent her a song entitled: ‘‘There's a Sigh in the Heart.” By some chance it fell intd? the hands of the father. “Who ever heard of such wretched ly unscientific stuff as this?" he said. So he wrote on the outside this mes sage and sent it back: "Mistaken diagnosis; no sigh in the heart possible. Sighs relate almost entirely to the lungs and diaphragm!” Protection for Book*. “We have to ' annish all our books in my country,” said a Chinese. “Oth erwise they would soon be eaten into a gray powder by a little black insect, like a beetle, that takes to books as a cat takes to ashes.

Woolwich arsenal is said to owe its existence to an explosion. According | to the story the surveyor general gave orders that some old French guns, captured by the duke of Marlborough, ^ should be reeast into English gun3 at Moorflelds. A young Swiss student, J Andrew Schalch, who was traveling in ^ search of scientific knowledge, hap pened to be present acd noted that the M molds to receive the molten metal ^ were not dry. He spake to the au- ! thorities of the danger, but the metal j was run and the generation of steam in thq damp mold caused an explo sion, attended with loss of life. Schlach was subsequently summoned to the ordnance office, his abilities tested, and he was then requested to Belect a site for a new foundry. His choice fell on Woolwich, where he was superintendent of the arsenal for I many years.—London Daily Chronicle. Health Note.
