Aroused into activity by the Em press of Ireland disaster, both the Senate and the House committees having under consideration the Lon don treaty and the La Follctte sea men's bill, have taken steps the past week to enact the desired legislation. The House committee on merchant marine and fisheries on June 12 vot ed to report fnvorably upon tho sea men's bill and directed the chairman to ask for a rule for its consideration by the House of Representatives. "This means that unless something unforseen occurs .to prevent, that the seamen's bill will be enacted into law at tho present session of Congress," was the news wired to San Francisco. "The passage of this bill will mean freedom for the American sailor. It will abolish the slave laws by which the seamen of our country nro the only persons who may bo punished for violation of civil contract to la bor, by being arrested as deserters, detained and finally delivered back to tho ship, or sentenced to a term in prison, for the simple act of quitting tho services of an employer. Under tho present laws the seamen must work until exhausted or go to prison for 'disobedience of lawful command.' Twelvo hours work every day, seven days a week at sea is the minimum often exceeded. In port fifteen to eighteen hours a day, sometimes 30 to 40 hours at a stretch, are required Then the vessel proceeds to sea and without intervening rest, the men begin their sea watches. With the passage of the Seamen's bill nine hours a day will constitute a day's work for snilors while in port, except in emergencies, and ats ca tho men will Rave only watch and watch (two on deck and three in fireroom." Briefly stated, the objects of the La Follette Seamen's bill are: First T promote safety of life at sea. Second To give freedom to tho sea men, to provide better conditions for the seamen, and by sodoing inducing a better class of men to follow this occupation. Third To put the American ship owner upon an equal basis in compet ing with foreign ships by eliminating the differential in favor of foreign vessels in. the wngo cost of operation when competing with domestic ves sels in taking passengers and cargo from American ports.
