Japan’s Factory Law.
•Jdpau 3 ■ aovvi / ----- Operation under the new factory law In Japan, which was to have gone into effect on June 1, has been postponed for two months by order of the privy council In order that the regulations may be revised. These. It Is pointed out. did not sufficiently guard the interests of the workers, and would result in confusion if ut once enforced. To the working people of the United Stutes the hours of lubor permitted under the new law will uieen extraordinary long, but It must be remembered that fac tory work is youug iu Japan uud that the working hours are founded on the hours voluntarily devoted to w(urk by the people on the farms or In their own workshops—twelve to six teen hours a day. The most lmis»rt ant thing Is the forbidding of child work under 10 yenrs and limiting the hours of girls under IS. It Is. on the whole, an advance on conditions a* they have been and will open the way to further concessions to labor. Linen Growing Scarcer. Summing up the linen qltuutlnu re cently. one of the principal importers to this market spoke this way: “Busi ness is as active as It ever is at this time of the year, when everyone Is trying to reduce stocks as fur as pos sible before taking Inventory, and or ders are placed only for goods that ure really needed to meet some special de mand or to fill out a broken line. Flax continues to get scarcer and dearer a? time goes on. and linens of all kludr are also getting scarcer and dearer. This will continue, ut least until the war ends, in ninny cases merchandise In still being let out In this market be low the cost of replacement, and tills will be done as long as present meth ods of averaglug up buying and sell ing prices are retained.” —New York Times. New Bug Killer. A new piece of agricultural sppa ratus has been developed for the pur pose of combating the destructive bugs and undesirable vegetable growths by an application of steam to the soil penetratiug some distance below the surface. The machine carries a steam generating plant and moves over the surfuee on a large drum, the periphery of which Is staggered with protruding stream outlets In the shnpo of blades or spines. As the apparatus Is drawn over the ground the spines Imbed them selves In the soil and while in this jh*- Sttlon the steuiii Is released und pene trates the* soil for some distance around the outlet, killing the worms, larvae aud hugs and the undesirable crop of weeds which seed themselves from one season to another. One Experience Enough. “I should think.” exclaimed n trnv .•ler. "that you could make g«ssl use of these trams by living a little way on of town?” “No. guv nor; none of yer Jerry-huib • ■uses fer ine.” “Why?” queried the traveler “Well, last year we took a 'ou*e out thut way. The boards of the floor were so wide apart that the grass used to rome up through the crevices, and m used to mow It every morititi then the flowers took to coming up and the landlord put the rent Up »•< <*ause he said we had a garden!” l.*> i don Tit-Hits. American Need of Ships President Wilson has constituted his precious shipping board. He has appointed a lawyer, two chipping men, a lumber man and a railroad man to spend $50,000,000 of public money on the building, buying, leas ing or working of merchant ships. In course of time the country will learn, as far as tangled accounts permit, how the freight ship compares with the mail bag in respect of govern mental extravagance and inefficiency. This plunge of the administration in to the shipping trade, in competition with the men who have made that trade and are engaged in making it bigger, is consistent with the knowl edge of water-tight compartments that prevails in the cotton fields and prairies. Never had the United States government an opportunity so favorable to the creation of an ade quate mercantile marine by means of a judicious system of subventions for the encouragement of shipbuilders and shipowners. And never was there a worse time to show the cold shoulder and turn the back on the open door of duty, progress and profit.—Boston Herald.
