coming Congress an issue as close to the
people, and as squarely moral, as meat
inspection and pure food and as potent
in stimulating into motion the great en
gines of public opinion. Federal suppress
ion of child labor is to be accomplished by
the means on which the national govern
ment has so often relied for power to leg

Senator Beveridge has announced that he
will introduce a bill prohibiting the rail
roads from carrying as freight any article
upon which children of less than fourteen
have labored. This would, with practic
ally perfect effectiveness, stop child labor
in the, cotton mills, in the coal mines, in
the glass factories everywhere. The
twenty-first century student of the evo'
lution of national legislation in the United
States will marvel at the things that were
done under the authority of the third par
agraph of the eighth section of the fir.
article of the Constitution: "The Congress
shall have power ... to regulate com
merce . . . among the several states."
Yet this provides about the only effective
means fpr the public opinion of one region
to master the will of another; and there
is no more reason to doubt the constitu
tionality of this child labor measure than
of the pure food and meat inspection bills,
It seems to be generally understood
that Speaker Cannon will permit the sub
sidy bill to go through the House. There
is a clear majority for it in the committee
and in the House if he gives the word
The President favors it, as-also does the
vice-president, Secretary Shaw, Secre
tary Root, Secretary Metc'alf and Post
master General Cortelyou. The senate
passed the bill early last session, the
elections are out of the way, and the bill
is endorsed by nearly all the leadiitg com
mercial organizations in the country. Its
advocates can therefore, see no ctaud in
the hori-bill craf; this winter.
