CHILDREN AND LABOR
The Iowa State Federation of Labor
will this year continue its efforts to
secure the passage of a law prohibit
ing child labor. This organization, in
conjunction with several women's
clubs, made strenuous efforts in behalf
of a child labor law at the session Of
the legislature two years ago, but met
with failure. Since that time literature
has een sent out at various times,
broadcast over the state, the object be.
ing to educate the people to a realiza
tion of the conditions that exist.
The aim of the crusade against
child labor is a high one, though it is
true that a strict laiy might work a
hardship upon some families.
The question of the effect of early
drudgery upon the after life of the
child who works when he should be
at school is an important one. This
phase is now being given considera
tion especially by the State Federation
of Labor. In a recent circular, just
received by the Courier, an article by
Horace Mann is presented, setting
forth good reasons for the enactment
of some legislation to relieve the sit
uation. In view of the fact that the
legislature at tho coming session will
be called upon to deal with the mat
ter, Mr. Mann's article is of general in
terest. It follows:
"Children of 10, 12 or 14 years of
age may be. steadily worked in our
manufactories without any schooling,
and this cruel deprivation may be per
severed in for years, and yet, during
all this period, no very alarming out
break occur to arouse fhe public mind
from its guilty slumber.' The children
are in their years of minority, and
they have no control over their own
time or their own actions. The bell
is to them what the water wheel and
the main shaft are to the machinery
which they superintend. The wheel
revolves and the machinery must go
the bell rings and the children must
assemble. In their hours of work,
they ar.e under the police of the neigh
borhood. Hence this thing may con
tinue for years, and the peace of' the
neighborhood remain undisturbed, ex
cept perhaps for a few nocturnal or
Sabbath day depredations. The ordi
nary movements of society may go on
without any shocks or collisions, as,
in the human system, a disease may
work at the vitals and gain a fatal as
cendancy there, before it manifests it
self on the surface. But the punish
ment for such an offense will not be
remitted because its infliction is post
poned—it only awaits the full comple
tion of the offsnse for this is a crime
of such magnitude that it requires
years for the criminal to perpetrate it
in and finish it thoroughly in all its
parts. But when the children pass
from the condition of restraint to that
of freedom—frpm years of enforced
but patient servitude to that
of independence for which they
have secretly pined and to
which they have looked forward, not
merely as a period of emancipation,
but of long delayed indulgence, when
they become strong in the passions
and propensities that grow up spontan
eously, but are weak in the moral pow
ers "that control them, and blind in the
intellect which forsees their tenden
cies when, according to the course
of our political institutions, they go
by one bound from the political noth
ingness of a child to the political sov
ereignty of the man ,for the people
who. so cruelly neglected and Injured

PASSING OF A CLASSIC.
There is something of pathos In the
closing of the career Of the Washing
ton Park club In Chicago, a something
that affects everyone In the .west who
enjoys watching a struggle for su
premacy by thoroughbreds. Washing
ton Park's track has been the scene
of sixteen American Derbies, the only
ones that America can ever know,for in
no other place than Washington park
would a race be a Deijby, no matter
what name should be given it nor how
rich a purse should be hung up for the
winning jockey. For the American
Derby—Washington Park's Derby—
was a classic. It was "the" event of
the wholo racing season in America.
It was a society event of the first mag
nitude. The club numbered among its
members, during its twenty-one years'
existence, some of the foremost men of
Chicago. They put the Derby on a
high plane so that it ranked with Eng
land's Derby in the first class among
But now all that is ended. It is true
that there has not been a Derby since
The Picket galloped home ahead of

death warrant of the Derby.
The great race could not have long
survived the encroachments of the
rapidly growing city, however, and Its
end was sure to come soon. The di-
was the demand fbr tne ground used
for the track made by would-be build
ers. Soon flat buildings and more pre
tentious homes will begin to spring up
where the historic track is now lo
cated. The ground that has rung true
under the hoofs of thoroughbreds will
be cut and ditched, foundations will be
laid in the trenches and brick and
mortar will transform the place into
a common residence district. The
American Derby is a part of the prioe
that must be paid for progress, but
to thousands of people the cost, even
of such a boon, cannot but seem an
extravagant one. ,• r'
The new governor of Wisconsin,
James O. Davidson, who on New
Year's day succeeded Robert M. La
Follette, is a living refutation of the
much repeated plaint, "There is no
chance any more for a poor boy in
America." This is not what boys of'
the present day should be told, first
because it is not true and, in addition,
because if they hear it so often they
will give up any hope they might have
had for a useful life.
Thirty years ago James O. Davidson
was penniless and a stranger in Mad'
ison, the capital of the state whose
chief executive he now is.
Mr. Davidson was born in Qogn,Nor
way on February 10. 1854. He came
to America at the age of 19, worked
for a time on farms and as a tailor,
finally started a general store at
Soldiers' Grove, Crawford county, and
has been in the mercantile business
since 1877. He was' an assemblyman
for six years, state treasurer for four
and has been lieutenant governor for
Attention first was drawn to him,
when as assemblyman he succeeded
after many defeats in putting through
bills increasing the taxation of sleep
ing car, expresa companies and other
He is an able man as an executive
officer. He has demonstrated his abil
ity—and his honesty, ne is what may
be called a self-made man, typical of
the American nation and the kind of
men it develops.
Breathitt county is quiet. Will won

friendship. One needn't be surprised
at anything now.
The San Domingo revolutionists
were going to reduce Puerto Plata to

Oh no, Puerta Plata citizens didn't

are a pretty good thing to have around
Now don't be surprised if something ^^8 a healtSy

and melts-the snow, makeB water out

in Washington very soon, and some
thing must happen.
No wonder Oyama is great. A new

The Ames Times says the row in
New York politics means simply that
New Voik will go democratic in the

"A political republican row in New

sometimes repeats itself, especially, if

The Glidden Graphic is of the opin

The Onawa Democrat does not be

political fad," the Democrat concludes,
"which the political doctors and

FOR SECRETARY OF 8TATE.
Davenport Times.—Recenty a num
ber of articles suggesting Senator W.'
C. Hayward of Davenport as a candi
date for secretary of state have been
reproduced in The Times. These
articles have come from newspapers
scattered all over the state. The Des
Moines Register and Leader printed
the senator's portrait and a long
article In which reasons were given
why the Scott county man Is likely
to be. candidate for that office, and
that article was followed by a most
hearty endorsement of the suggestion
by the newspapers of Hancock county,
Senator Hay ward's former home. Ed
N. Baily of the Britt Tribune devoted
more than a column in a recent issue
of his paper telling why Hancock
county will undoydtedly give its sup
port to the senator, if he decides to be
come a candidate, and the Garner Sig
nal, a newspaper once owned by Mr,
Hayward, comes out with the state
ment that he will receive the sup
port of the countv without doubt. The
Sioux City Journal, Mr. Perkins'paper
says that Mr. Hayward will be an
Ideal harmony candidate. And all
this is from newspapers from outside
of the second district, where, of course
on account of what he has done, not
only for Scott county, but for tho
Second district, he will receive uni
ted support if he definitely announces
For a time Mr. Hayward did not
look with favor upon the suggestion
because he expected that Hon. Joe,
R. Lane of Davenport would become
a candidate for governor. But since
it has been definitely asserted by Mr,
Lane that he will noti allow his nama
to be used, the friends of Mr. Hay
ward have felt free to urge him to
become a candidate.
That he is eminently well qualified
for the position for which he has been
suggested as a candidate, is undisput
ed. He Is a man of keen business
ability. He is also a man of expert
ence in state affairs. He has served as

THE HALL OF SHAME.
Council Bluffs Nonpareil.—The ec
centric citizen of New York state who
suggests the establishment of a hall
of shame and offers to donate *200,000
to the project, limits the choice of lo
cation to Boston, Pitttsburg and New
York City. By all means the latter.
What more excruciatingly appropriate
than that the memory of deeds of
shaine be perpetuated, if at all, right
In the chief arena of their doing!
But there is no call for a temple of
this sort, builded of stone and mortar.
Ample provision is already made in
the contempt of an outraged public
for the lasting shame of those whose
deserts suggests such a plan.
Of course, the suggestion is an ex
travagant and impracticable one, but
it far from being without point. It
will help no little in the proper en
shrining of the business and political
grafters of the day—too numerous to
mention—to reflect on the idea of per
petuating in marble their disgrace.
The author of the idea of a hall of
shame has done his country a real ser
vice. He has given addedi point to the
sharp stick of destination and loath
ing with which the people are so vig
orously prodding the practitioners of
the. school of fancy thievery.
VTHE FORAKER BROTHERS.
Kansas City Journal.—James For
aker, brother of the Ohio senator,
looks exactly like the latter, and that
is one reason why he avoids visiting
Washington, especially when congress
Is in session. At times, however, bust
ness compels him to. do so, and on
such occasions he is continually being
addressed as "Senator." He was in the
capital a few days and was stepping
along Pennsylvania avenue, when a
stranger said: "Any progress about
that office you were to get me, sen
ator?" "1 never promised you any
office," was the calm reply. "What!"
shouted the Ohfon. "Do you mean to
tell me that you did not promise mr
the postmastership?" "I don't care
whether I did or not," responded For
aker. "I am not going to get it for
you, and I don't care a continental
whether you like it or not." Then he
walked away. Later he told a friend
about the incident. "I guess," he
chuckled, "Joe will have some ex
plaining to do, I should think It
would pay him to hire me to stay
away from here."
