j Mcd of overtime \<:n tlm Statement

"ommittee the commiesfoners of Cook
ounty named Mid they were always in
j i hurry for the box**), not knowing
i when the elections in Cook county
\ would cli is had enough for the
women to !»• denied ■ vote, but it' in
addition they are t<>lt Ito work overtime
at the rate of four cents a box. in order
that the m?m may have them to east
their votes, I think it is too much.
On the strength of this pel it inn.
Judge Tuthill Issued an Injunction
against the enforcement of the law, de
ciding it unconstitutional, ami today
women are working sixteen hours ii day
in the sweat shops or Chicago under
tlie ruling of a judge, who. during his
official career of over fifty years, has
newer been asked to work longer than
eight hours :i day. What chance for re
election would he have if the Working
women of Illinois could vole?
'there is one other picture of this
box factory I would like to leave with
you. because it illustrates the danger of
our time: The Women's Trade I'nion
League of Chicago arranged an open air
meeting before the factory. Miss Mary
McArthur spoke from the carriage, and
as the 800 young girls came out of the
factory, we tried to meet them and tell
them the story. That was in October,
but wo had winter weather in October
by mistake. The thermometer had gone
down to twenty nine degrees. Coming
out of one of the doors was a child
not as high as my shoulder, with a
skirt of thin material that reached just
below her knee,s, and a thin black jacket
pinned at the collar. I asked her to
enme over and hear Mliss McArthur
speak. She looked at me, and said, in
the most pitiful way, as though repeat
ing by note, "We are contented, we are
eonttfnted." "0," I said, "don't say that
ever. What makes you contented, what
are you earning'!" She said she was
earning five cents an hour. Mr. Ritchie
stated somewhat proudly that he was
giving cents an hour, yet that child
stood holding iv her hand the power for
the greatest national disaster in out
country. What trade is secure against
tin- introduction of machinery'/ And
whal machinery has yet been invented
that does not ultimately go to the
woman and child? Of every latest in
vention you will see great placards and
sijrns stating that any woman, or girl,
or child, can run that machinery.
Five cents an hour. She is your
competitor; she is our competitor; she
is a danger to our nation, and there are
only two ways open, one to bring her
into our organized labor movement, and
you should bring her into your organi
sation!* and protect her through Un
laws of our country. We need for the
women of our country, legislation: we
are entitled to it by the decisions of
the supreme court of the United States
-a most unusual lacking for the state
ment, .bulge Brewer declined that men
and women were differently made. 1
am glad judges do know that. Rut on
th", strength of that knowledge, offi
cially stated, the United States in its
various stac legislatures, is entitled to
enact laws for the health and mother
bond of our people.
Rut though we Separate ourselves In
to our women*' groups, we know our
kinship with you. and because we rea
liaa that our young women aud girls in
onr unions must understand the entire
sliuy not only the story of their own
group We try to bring them into re
lationship with you. The Women's
Trade Union League of Chicago issued
a let of question* and offered a prize
lor the l>cst answers given. The ques
tion* pertained to the extraordinary
contempt proceedings against Riot hers
Gompers, Mitchell and Morrison: these
questions were answered by many of
the -iris, and those of the prize winners
wen' printed. It helped to bring before
tlu—t young workers the possibility of
the great story of the age in which we
are living. The fact which brought out
those contempt proceedings mean lead
ership. II has been leadership on the
part of Mr. QomperS, Mr. Morrison and
Iff. Mitchell, and it is the, high faith
'that falls not by the way. It reminds
me of the story told of another time
and another struggle. In Illinois were
the first and last martyrs to the cause
of slavery—Elijah Lovejoy and Abra
ham Lincoln. When Elijah Lovejoy
pleaded for the slaves his press was tie
stroyed, he was murdered and his body
was thrown in a ditch. Thirty years
later a grave was given him, and sixty
years later the State of Illinois and
the people of Alton placet! a statue to
the memory of the man who had the
courage to say: "As long as American
blood runs in my veins, I will hold my
free to speak, to write, to publish
what 1 will on any subject whatever,
bidding myself amenable for the same
to the laws of my country."
Friends, to teach and train the young
er Kirls- to bring them into relationship
with our group, to arouse within them a
ci.nscioiisness of their birth right, to
show them a vision of the kingdom, to
..how them the way to enter in and take
IM.sseasion -such is the work of the N'a
tional Women's Trade Union league.

Standard of Living In Germany and
United States.
A recent issue of the Labor Gazette
of the board of trade, Loudon, gives
the result of au Inquiry made by the
imperial statistical department at Ber
lin into household expenditures of fam
ilies of stuull means in Germany. The
report was based primarily on returns

must or not
of efficiency in the
j from about n thousand families liv ing
In Berlin and Hamburg.
The average yearly income for the
! skilled workmen who reported was
I found to be $458.83 and the average
■ expenditure $4.17.71. of which 51.5 per
cent was spent fur food alone. Among
the unskilled laborers in both indus
trial and commercial occupations the
report showed uu average yearly in
come of $4014.78 and au average yearly
expenditure of $411.70, 54 per cent of
which went for food alone.
A recent study of the standard of liv
ing In New York city, made under the
I Sage foundation, led to the conclusion
that it was impossible for a family of
average size, five or six. to maintain n
normal standard of living on an In
come under $StiO a year. This oonclu
-1 sion has been substantiated by an In
vestigation by the federal bureau of
! labor, which showed that the average
! income among 1,418 workmen iv the
north Atlantic states, among whom
the percentage of skilled labor was
high, was $834.&T Against this was
'an average yearly expenditure of
$778.04, of which only 43 per cent was
spent for food.
An Investigation by the New York
Association For Improving the Condi
j tion of the Poor made less than a year
I ago showed that among a thousand
i men who had been compelled to ask
for aid the average yearly wage when
I employed at full time varied from $575
to $525, as the times were good or bad.
, The men were practically all ablebod
led family men, anxious to work. The
percentage of skilled and unskilhnl la
j borers In the thousand was about
1 equal.—New York Tribune.
