The telegrams, letters, petitions and per sonal pleas which poured in upon the municipal organization committee in charge of the bill made a deep impres sion and the JefTerson county delegation is now split on the question. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••■••a “And in the meantime, until the legis lature meets again the people of Bir mingham will be given an opportunity to think over and express their wishes for or against the bill. 1 am firmly con vinced myself that the great majority of the people are opposed to five com missioners.” Asked how the will of the public would be registered on the issue, Mr. Weath erly stated he could not yet state in what form that phase of the matter would be worked out. He said that at present he nor any of those leading the opposition to the bill had any plans for an initiative election vote to poll the public on the question, mass meetinc or any other scheme, but that such would be decided upon in the near fu ture. As the matter now stands, the bill has been reported favorably and set for action in July when the legisla ture convenes after recess. I PASSED BY HOUSE Effort of John to Postpone Action Fails NEEDLESS ARGUMENT Bill Provides Age Limit of 13 for Em ploying Children and 14 After Sep tember, 1916—To Reinstate Confederate Pensioners By I„ S. BETTY Montgomery, February 11.—(Special ) By a vote of 82 to 10. the house today pAssod the compromise child Tabor bilk which was agreed upon by the Alabama child labor committee, the Federation of ; Women s clubs, and the mill operators The bill was called up as a special order on the calendar by Representative Weakley of .lefferson, who Introduced the original measure. An unsuccessful effort was made by j Representative John of Dallas to post pone the consideration of the bill un til the third legislative day after re cess, and the motion to postpone way j argued at length. The Dallas represen- j tative opposed the passage of the bill at this time on the ground that the bill, in his opinion, did not fill the neessary requirements, and, when the house refused to postpone the meas ure, Mr. John moved that his child labor bill reported by the judiciary com mittee, be passed as a substitute meas ure. This the house refused to do &y an overwhelming vote. The consideration of the compromise! child labor bill brought on the only' discussion during the morning session, and precipitated a considerable amount j of needless argument. Representatives Weakley, Merritt and Shapiro expressed vigorous opposition to the motion to let the bill go over until after the re cess, and so ably did they protest I against the postponement of the meas- j ure that the members were almost unanimous in favoring immediate eon-I sideration. Features of the Bill Under the provisions of the substi tute, or compromise, child labor bill, on any after September 1, 1916, no child and after September 1. 1916, no child be employed in any gainful occupation, except agriculture and domestic serv ice, and that on and after September 1, 1916, no child under the age of 11 shall take suoh employment. The pres ent age limit Is 11 years. Another Important provision of th-5 j bill, and this Is the compromise divis ion, regulates the hours of employment, limiting child labor to 11 hours per day and 60 hours per week. The orlginol bill, which was sponsored by the Ala bama child labor committee and tne Federation of Women's clubs, limited the hours of employment to 48 hours per week. Representative John opposed the bill on the ground that It does not conta'n sufficient requirements, and that It docs not, as he said, contain certain pro visions for the enforcement of the law by the state prison inspector. The Dallas reoresBeitiOlce declared that he had written every child labor law on the statute books of the state, with the exception of the law written In the Jelks administration, and stated that his bill was Infinitely better than the one under consideration. He re ferred caustically to Hershell Jones, secretary of the Alabama Child I,aboi association, who has been In Alabama several months In the Interest of the passage of the bill. The Dallas rep resentative refered to him as "the man from God knows where.” To Reinstate Pensioners In the absence of Captain Walden of Morgan, who was detained at his home FOR RENT BEST AND CHEAPEST OFFICES IN THE CITY IN THE NEW, MODERN, FIREPROOF LYRIC THEATRE OFFICE BUILD1 WE CAN GIVE YOU LARGE OR SMALL CONNECTING OFFICES AT A VERY LOW RENTAL Sot R.
