An Overall Factory That
Badly Needs an Over
Eva Gay Finds a Bone to Pick
With Its Rich Pro
The Light So Bad That the
Girls Endanger Their
Filthy Water to Drink— No
Comforts Nor Conven
RIDAY of last
week I received
a message from a
former acquaint
ance, saying that
she was nearly
blind as the re
sult of working
in an overall fac
tory in this city,
and asking me to
come and see
her. 1 thought
her statement
possibly exag
gerated, but thought that perhaps it
would be worth while to find how much
of truth there was in her story.
Following the address given in the
note, 1 found the house after some diffi
culty. It was a two-story frame build
ing that had originally fronted the
street, hut now stands at the hack of a
filthy yard, while a newer and more
pretensions tenement now fills its
former place. The house had that air
of dilapidation acquired from years of
rental and neglect. The building
seemed to be occupied by people
who rented a room or two each,
and took in sewing or washing
in order to eke out a subsistence. After
a little inquiry I found tin" room where
my friend lived. She was lying on a
couch, with her eyes bandaged, so that
I had time to glance about the room be
fore making my presence known. The
floor was guiltless of carpet or rug.
The wall paper, originally of some dark
color, had been torn oil in many places,
leaving discolored patches. The sun
light streamed in through a grimy and
uncurtained window. A '•hair, and oil
stove, a table and a few dishes formed
the only other * furniture besides the
couch on which my friend was lying.
i wasn't a cheerful place, and I thought
perhaps she kept her eyes bandaged in
order to shut out
Alter making my presence known,
and indulging in a lew polite
commonplaces, I said: "Mary, how
do you happen to bo living
here and when; is all the pretty furni
ture that, used to make your room so
comfortable?" She explained that she
had always been able to earn from X to
|8 a week until, on going to work in an
overall factory, her eyes had been in
jured by working in poor light. The
foreman advised her to quit work for
awhile, but, being dependent on her
work for a living, she saw no alterna
tive but to work as long as possible and
trust the future for better times. Noth
ing better came, however: she had been
lying for weeks with her eyes bandaged
and the physician gave but little hope
that she would be able to work steadily
again. A package of pawn checks rep
resented the pretty furniture which had
formerly made her room look so cosy.
There was no tire in the room, but
Mary said the laundry woman down
stairs would let her sit by the heating
stove when it became too cold to stay
up stairs without a lire.
After reporting the ease to some char
itable people, who promised to see that
the girl had good care, 1 visited the fac
tory at which she had worked. It was a
frame building, a story and a half high.
Judging from its appearance, it might
have been one of the lirst buildings
erected iii the city. A blacksmith shop
on one side ami a brick block on the
other left not much vacant space about
the building.
The light came through the large
windows in the store front. Those who
were fortunate enough to sit near the
windows had good light, but those who
sat farther back were at a disadvantage.
The girls said that they were obliged to
work rapidly in order to make living
wages, and the lack of sufficient light
was a serious matter to them. Several
complained of sore eyes. There were
lamps hung along at intervals over the
machines, but they were no! kept in
SUCh order as to give good results.
On inquiry I found that the proprie
tor, Mr. Cohen, is said to own the brick
block adjoining, and also a large amount
of real estate in different parts of the
city. One might pity him if lie were
just starting into business, and could
not afford to give help a comfortable
place in which to work. As it is. he
could put his overall factory in tin- brick
block adjoining, but that would involve
the loss of office rent which is now re
ceived from that building, and certainly
no sensible or humane person would
think of asking girls to work in their
present quarters with its attendant sur
"Can 1 get a class of water?'- I in
quired of one of the girls.
"Yes, if you want to drink the water
from that well out in the yard," she an
"What's the trouble with the water?"
I asked. vQB
.lust go out and see where that well is
situated and then remember that all
last summer we had to
without even ice to cool it. The owner
of the factory said thai we could beg a
chunk of ice from the restaurant across
the yard if we couldn't do without it.
Several of our girls drank the water and
it made them sick. So we used to work
all day long in the heat and suffer thirst
rather than drink the impure water
from that well.'
I found that the well was situated
where it couldn't fail to receive the
drainage from several vaults, and all
sorts of refuse were thrown out from
the blacksmith shop and stores. The
closet which the girls are obliged to use
is in too filthy a condition for descrip
tion, yet complaint and request tor bet
ter accommodations have been unavail-
1 found the wages as high as those
paid for similar work in other factories.
('ills who were just beginning earned
from $1.50 to 13 per week. A large per
centage earned from 50 to 7.""> cents a
day. Experts earned from $8 to $11 per
week. The foreman was pleasant and
gentlemanly— evidently willing to do
all that he could In order to better the
condition of affairs. But he claimed
that he could do nothing in regard to
the evils of which 1 have spoken unless
the owner of the factory were willing.
The girls seemed disposed to accept
their surroundings without much com
ment, saving that they were glad to get
work in any sort of place, and their
greatest source of trouble seemed to be
that they hud no money to spend for
Christmas, because work had been so
slack. >- Eva Gay.

Adown the oaken staircase
She comes with dainty tread.
In satin gown of quaintest cut.

Hangs Just above her head.
Her white throat uses stately
From out its snowy bed,'
Her tender eyes are dovi QCSSt,
Her lips are ruby red—
And a green bough of mistletoe
Hangs o'er her golden head.
Her slippered font's toft patter,
Her ankle so well bred.
Set my pool heart a-flutter;
Her ire 1 do not dread.
I only see the mistletoe
That hangs above her head.
I clasp her close and kiss her,
Not caring what is said.
For the truth is. If you'd know it,
We are already wed-

Hangs just above her head.

commission people had more buying orders

the present rise, while the selling was prin

throughout the entire day. no boom Being
apparent, but the buying was of the best
character, while the feeling was of unusual
buoyancy, and the improvement as
well as the business done was re
markably well distributed. The coal stocks
and the grangers, as usual of late, were
the leaders, bom in point of activity and
strength, but they monopolized less attention
than they have for ihe past two weeks, and
the trading in the usually inactive list was
especially heavy, while the number of shares
traded in was larger than on any day for
some time. The coal stocks started off with
a Loom, and their prices were rapidly rushed
Dp from 1 to _'4 per cent, but other stocks
soon came iv for a share of the improvement
and the grangers. "Missouri Pacific, and even
the trunk lines, became prominent for the
advances made. There was very good busi
ness in Erie and Lake Shore, and they were
both strong throughout. The "Northern Pa
cific grourhecame active toward noon, when
the (iouldVocks also showed more anima
tion than usual, and all were in good de-
mand. The bears were quiet to-day, and did
little except covering a few shorts, but that
kind of operations was uot a factor in the
course of prices, and the bulls had things
almost entirely in their own hands.
The opening prices were from i* to % per
cent above those of Saturday evening, and
the market became very active immediately,
while the upward movement became very
pronounced, and especially in the coal
stocks under the lead of Lackawanna. There
was a slight 101 lin the market, but toward
noon the activity and strength again ap
peared, and Missouri Pacific and the North
crn Pacifies took the lead, and by 12 o'clock
prices were from 1 to *2 per cent above those
of the owning. Less animation was no
ticed in the afternoon, and no gains were
made except in Lackawanna and Erie, which
became prominent, but towards '._ p. m. the
general list again moved forward, and in the
last hour a general advance took place, in
which the highest figures of th%day were
reached in most of the list. The market
closed active and strong at the best prices.

many weeks the buoyancy and animation in

all around, and the sales of all issues reached
$1,600,000 for the day. while the Heading

except from New York, and that exchange
adjourned early with the %C decline from
Saturday's closing price. At 12 o'clock noth
ing had been done in any other futures thau
No. 1 northern for May. The cold wave sig
nal was up and had a supporting influence
on futures, neutralizing what was otherwise
a bearish feeling. 25.000 bu May sold at

The two days' receipts of 4t'o cars made a
fair showing on the sample tables, but there
whs a great scarcity ot buyers and but little
trading was done. A fair number of local
millers .was present, though more through
force of habit than any desire to buy. Some
few lots were picked up at about Saturday's
prices, and one or two sales of good wheat
were made a shade higher. In the absence
of any speculative markets there was light
attendance on 'change, and the estimated re
ceipts of 300 cars for Wednesday encouraged
buyers to hold off. Car lot sales* by sample —

FLOUR and COURSE grain's.
Flour— The market was steady but slow.
Under any ordinary conditions it ha* always
been slow during the holiday week, and the
peculiar conditions existing it is necessar
ily so now. The Milwaukee convention em
phasized the fact that millers think wheat too
high and that the meeting was primarily to
effect a reduction. The natural conclusion
of Hour dealers Is that a reduction in wheat
prices means as well, a reduction in flour
prices and are very probably waiting for it.
The expected sometimes is not realized. In
this case there is some waiting for it.
