INSPECTORSThe The Child Labor Committee Doe NotIntend Intend to Let Up In Its Complaintsof of Ute Inefficiency or CommissionerMotlackln Motlackln In Uelttnc the Law UnforcedThere There Is a law on tho statute books of thisState State which provides that no child underthe p the age of 14 nhall be permitted to workIn In any factory in this State It providesslio slio that a child between fourteen andpiilron piilron shall nut be so employed unlessa a certificate executed by a health officere toe flied In the office of the employer Thecertificate certificate shall not be issued unless theofficer officer Issuing it is satisfied that the childis is 14 years old or over The certificateshall shall contain the place of birth if knownII 0 description of the child and the opinionthat that the child Is physically able to perform form the work he or she Intends to dolt It has recently como to the knowledge ofcertain certain persons that the provisions of thislaw law are flagrantly violated In factories inthis this city and up the State The enforcement ment of the law is in the bands of LaborCommissioner Commissioner John McMackin who draws 13600 a year for his job his first and seconddeputies deputies John Williams and John Lundrigan rigan four special agcnU and thirtysevendeputy deputy factory Inspectors eight of whomare are womenCommissioner Commissioner McMackin ID an elderly professional fessional labor man who la a candidate forreappointment reappointment at the hands of Gov Hlgglns gins The Child Labor Committee of thiscity city of which Robert Hunter is the chairman man and J K Paulding the secretaryU U opposing the reappointment on thoground ground that McMackin does not enforce thelaw lawThere There are unofficial persons who hareinvestigated investigated the question who sAy that thelaw law is not only not enforced but who gomuch much further and assert that certain deputyfactory factory Inspectors permit the law to beviolated violated because they are paid to do soby by the men who hire the children For thepresent present the persons who have been makingtho tho Investigation refuse to give names anddates datesThere datesThere There are more than 2000 establishmentsin in this town where children are employedand and a person who Is in a position to knowwhat what he is talking about sold yesterday thatthere there was hardly one of these places In whichthere there was not at leaat one child under thelegal legal age at work On that basis there aresomething something like 2000 violations of the lawn n this town alone six daya In the weekFor For reply to his critics the Commissionersays says that he doesnt believe it was the intention tendon of the Legislature to inflict punishment ment for every first offence against thelaw law He says Lila practice has been whenever ever a child under 14 was found at workto to take him out of the factory and wornthe the employer and the childs parents orguardian Ieuardan guardian Every second offence be Baysbe Ibe be has relentlessly prosecutedReplying Replying to this the child labor committee I mittee refers to the Commissioners report port for 1003 in which it la shown that justfive five canes of violation of the law were prosecuted cuted to a conviction in this city In thatyear year Friend of the committee foundmore more violations than that and they didntvisit visit onetenth of the 2000 places wherechildren children are employed They say Itsibcurd ibcurd to assert as the report practicallyCOM does assert in view of the Commissionersexplanation explanation of how he enforces the lawthat that there were only fire seoond offences 1 in this dtr in 1902 i a man who taken anunofficial unofficial but very great personal InterestIn In this question for BOeral years the lawIs U openly violated all over town Oo Intoalmost almost the first factory you come to andIll Ill venture to say youll find at least oneor or two children at work there who areunder under 14They They lia about their ages of courseThats Thats to be expected They lire taughtto to by precept of their parents and the example ample of their employers Its a profitablething thing for employers to hire children Onemans man In whose factory I found three pirlsand and two boys between the ages of 11 and 12of when I told him ho ought to be ashamedof of himself repliedWhy Why wore I not able to work childrennearly be profits of my business would be cutnearly nearly 10 per cent Ithat never oollld standthat that you know and the children are muchbetter better off here than they would be at homeAnd And they learn more too Tho parentsof of most of them are too poor to clothe themproperly properly in order that they might go toschool school But dont you know that you are violating lating tho law I askedSo So does every saloon keeper and dlsorderlv orderly house keeper In New York hereplied replied and so do the great merchantsdowntown downtown who clog tho sidewalks withtheir their pocking cases Who doesnt violatethe the lawThen Then he threw out his chest and look cdall all if the last word had bwn wild Butwhen when I asked him if he violated the low onthe the WHIR terms as keepers of paloons anddisorderly disorderly VIOUKH ho merely smiled nndIjnTprl IjnTprl his F nnHprsXow Xow I am accusing no person connectedwith with the Department of Labor of accepting log bribes for failing to detect violationsof of the law but I do wiy that its mightypeculiar peculiar that so many children under 11are are working in our factories If somebody Isnt gelling his rake off for permitting ItIf If thin isnt m then Homebody i neglectingopportunities opportunities that are not often paasedup up in this town But at the best the conditions ditions indicate utter inefficiency in theenforcement enforcement of the lawWhen When one know hU New York nndIth its cutom he never Mops to inquire whythe the saloons so very generally violate theLiquor Liquor Tax law or why the gambling anddisorderly disorderly houses are open and doing business ness Every New Yorker knows why Someone one may ho pardoned remembering IheRV way and custom of the town for concluding cluding that the Child Labor law is beingviolated Iolaloo violated under the Hams termBut But the violations of the law are notronfinerl confined to New York city They aredoing doing the same thing up the State in
