T he Boston Daily Erening lic<
Shas an article on "factory gills,.
which shows that while th. man
tecturi ig corperatioiis "are niakin' i
dividends to stockhioldors from thiity
to one hundred per cent., the girls
in the mills ure sadly overworked,
I underfed anx underpaid, and at th" c
name time subjected to a rigor of
discipline which admits of no relax
atioil until nature itself gives way.'
The average earni ii sg are stated
to be "about one dollar a day," for
which "most of them tuil eleven
hours a day," although some mills
have reduced, or are aliout to reduce
the tienc to ten hours. It is only
- within a few years thtim it has been
F reduced friim fourteen hours. They
jiay for board two dollars and
twenty-five cetits per wick, to which
in Lowell, the factories add fifty
cents a week. Those who knows
whit it costs to purchase provisions
will tinot be surprised to be told 1ta
"boarding huouse keepers cmn scarce
make both ends meet;" and to learn
i fronm "a factory girl," that "we usu
ally have for breakfast hard, sour
biscuit, a small piece of something,
called pie, and miserable tea." At
such a price it is imoospil'le that the
fare should be decently good. It is
charged, also, that the paint and
flo',r in the rooms of the operatives
are never washed, and they are al
lowed "only one clean sheet in two
weeks, and two towels per week for
thirty-five boarders." Also, "our a
gas is not turned on until a quarter
- beflre six, so that we have but three c
quarters of an hour to wash. put up
our hair do our chambe'r work and
e eat breakfas ."
Thexn as to diecipline we are told t
that everything is done by the tap f of
the bell. In the morning, three taps
iof the bell are given for starting the
Sengitie; and in three miiutes after.
t the yard gates are clitsed. This rule
is so rigidly enforced that a few (hays
ago a ymouiin wonian, after walkinign
two miles, was ahut oct because '
she reached the yard gato three
minutes too late, and had to walk
back losing her day. During thie
Sdiay no operative mnst leave the -
~ r''otn in which she is employed, not
even if time machinery stops, annd o Ii
r talkiig or reuditig is allowed. For I
s vihlating rules foirfeiture of wages is <
