Recent Visit of State Factory Inspector

nouncement That Law Will

work for or in or about or in connection
with any mill, factory, quarry or work

The recent intpection tour of Allen
Calhoun of Middleburv, state factory in
spector, through the Barre granite belt
is followed by the announcement tnat
the foregoing section of the statutes is
to be rigidly enforced. In a number of
instances this means that boys employed
in carrying tools, as nippers or grinders
in the ntoneshed, or as signal boys at
the quarries must furnish satisfactory
proof that their age exempts them from
the statutory limitations.
This morning Dr. Joe V.' Jackson, a
member of the school commission, re
ceived a communication from the parents
of a boy who is employed as a tool car
rier 1n one of the local plants. On in
quiry it developed that the lad is more
than 14 years old and audi being a faet
the matter cannot be taken up bv the
commission until the public school ses
sions are resumed. Another section of
the statutes insists that children between
the ages of 14 and 16 desiring to work in
mills, factories, quarries,' etc.,' must fur
nish a certificate guaranteeing that. they
have completed what is termed the ele
mentary course in the schools. Little
trouble is anticipated in connection with
the enforcement of this statutory man
date, but it is essential that the age
limit of 14, which does' not recognize a
child's scholastic accomplishments as a
qualification for allowing him to work,

ious to have their children work in vaca
It is said that several bovs who start
ed work as usual this morning were told
by their employers to go home. Before
Mr. Calhoun returned to his home Sat
urday, he is quoted as saying that Barre
manufacturers and quarry owners are
co-operating heartily with 4iim in an
effort to enforce the laws. While in the
city he conferred with Trow 4 Holden,
the South Main street-tool manufactur
ers, in resrard to a device for a dust re
