The Majority Against the Measur
Was EKxceedingly Narrow.
The following gives the proceeding
in the House wheu the bill to prohibi
child lIbor in the cotton mills was dc
The child labor bill did not come i
until a quarter to twelve. The ques
Lion was " Shall the bill pass secon<
readig, and be ordered to a Child?"
Mr. Ashley made the first speech 01
the question. Is it right, Ie asked, t<
say that men are not competent 01
should not control their own families"
There is another question. The rent.
ers in the country, a lot of theln
couldn't making a living on the farim
and they moved to a Lown to work it
the factories and make a living and pay)
their debts. Is it right to say to them
that their children shall not wol k in
the mills? There are in the mills in
Anderson people who are as good a,
any member of this House. Tle prin.
ciple of this bill is wrong.
There are people from Alassachu
setts who are urging this bill. The
labor unions are urging it. There are
no labor unions in his section and they
have no strikes up there. Here, in
Columbia, where they have unions,
they have strikes and strife. There i,
not a man in the cotton mills who
would not sond his children to school
if he could afford it.
Bad crops had run people into the
mills. Families had gone to the mills
barefooted. The mill presideit had
actually put shoes oii their feet and
given them work to do.
Ile has a hundred cousins in the
mills in this State. I Ie has cighit cous
ins oii the Richland mill hill. IIe had
questioned them and he had seen but
one man there whi'> favored this bill,
and he had been in the strike and laf
moved over to the di.stillery and is at
work there now.
Ile told of one of his tenants who
had moved from the farm, where he
couldn't make ends meet, and with the
aid of the work of his chilhren in the
factory lie had been able to buy lim
a hom in town and a little Flarm; and
all of this man's children can read and
Mr. Ashley said lie had started life
as a hirelingc, drainuha'' diiches in the
swamp. What would have become of
him if lie had not been able to hive
worked his children? And there is as
much right to apply this principle to a
farmer as to 3 factory operative. ile
loves the poor peoplc of his country
and would go down, if go down he
must pleadilig for them and for their
liberty. ' Equal rights to all," lie con
tended. lie hoped this bill would be
killed so dead it wutild never be resur
The opposition to this bill has come,
principally, from Greenville and An
derson. But now Spartanburg had a
representative to oppose othe measure.
This was Capt. Dean, who said he
wanted to discuss the bill ini a practical
way. As a census taker he had visited
the homes of mill people-the Tucapau
mill onl Tiger river. lIe folnd some
had mceo homes while others were
slovenly. The oflicets of that mill are
humane 11(nd kind. The opeiatives of
the mills of South Carelina cannot be
comnparedl with the operatives of thle
North andl the managers of mills in the
South catnnot, be compared with the
mill oflicials North.
The operatives of the North are for
eigners who have nto respect for law
atnd order. In the South somte of the
best blood( of the State has wvorked in
mills. Some of his own grandchildren
had worked in itills, and( fhe hadl ahvays3
considered himself a thoroughbred.
T1he pleople who can't, make ends
meet on the farms are freqtuently fore
ed1 to go to the mills. Some of them
are shiftless while others save atnd lay
u:. money. The datnger of this legis
lation is that, it, cantnot be enfot cedl,
not even by the strong arm of thte mili
tary law. Is this cotutry dIrifting to
imperialism? That is what this bill
ie stated in rcply to a stuggestion
from Mr. McGowan that the childrent
woriking in the mills are far f romt being
oppressedl. Iec had visited thte Tucapau
mill in company with the stuperinten
donit. They had seen a little boy
sweeping airoundt itt onte of thle dIepart
mnents. T1htc superintendenit told the
little boy lie had( better go honte as lie
was not, on the pay ioll , btut the chihl
said that the mtothter had sent the httle
one there to play and~ stay with his
brother as she had to be0 away from
home att work. That, instance odin't
indlicate cruelty or hairshness.
ie would ntot assume the garb of
preacere, but lie dleclared that Sabbatl
dlesecrationi in the itural dlistr-icts is eve
moi-e noticeablo thtatn in factory vil
lages. There are churches anid Stun
