The efficiency of West Virginia idleness
and vagrancy art is under observation
not only here where it is
being tried out, but in numerous other
states from which requests have
como for copies of the law and information
in regard to exactly what is
being accomplished, says the Capitol
Gossip man of th.- Charleston Mail.
With the unprecedented demand
for labor in the stato at this time
there is absolutely no excuse for any
able bodied man being Idle, in tlic
opinion of executive officials, so the
mere fact that such a man is found
to he working Iocs than 35 hours a
week is almost a sure proof of vagrancy.
While the law was passed to ho
effective only during the war. it is
believed nossible hv manv nersons
that it's proper enforcement at this
time will only prove its value for any
time, ami it is likely to be re-enacted
and amended for enforcement In the
peace times which are to follow the
