A rcpoit Is.sued todaj by the Census
Bureau in Washington shows that child
labor conditions in Philadelphia nnd Penn
sjlvania are the worst in tho United
States. Commenting on this this after
noon, Paul X. Purninn, secretary of tho
unnu Iabcr Association of Pennsylvania,
said this was due entiiely to the Influence
of tho Penrose controlled political ma
chine, which ho accused of having con
stantly stood in tho way of child labor
legislation, and of having throttled the
child lnboi bill diawn up by the associa
tion at the Inst session of the Legislature.
The figures given bj tho Census Bureau
are verified by thu State Factory Inspec
According to tho leport of tho Census
Buteau, which Is not as definite on tho
mntter of child labor us Is tho repot t
of the Stato Factory Inspector. In 1M
there wero 3 malos between tho ages
of 10 nnn U jenrs emplojed in Philadel
phia; U,23 between tne ages of 11 and
15, and iS,20J bctwe-n tne ages of IS and
2u. Of females, saj-s tho report, there
wero employed In this Uty. In 1310, 30J
between the ages of 10 and 13, WIS be
tween the ages of U und 15, and .Q)
bttween the ages of 16 and 20.
The report of tlu Stute Factory In
spector shows that 2l.0m chlldien, between
the as's of II and K jears, uio contlnu
till employed in Philadelphia, ami ai.OO
ihildriii in the finite State 'of Pennsyl
vania. This condition Is worse than In
any other Statu or city in tho Union,
said Mr. Fuiman.
The following figures on child labor In
the greatest induntrlnl States In tho Union
show, bv comparison, the backwardness
of Pennsylvania in the mntter:
As ngnlnst tho .hGj children between
the age ot it and 1H years employed In
the vurious Industries of the State, New
York has K.SU. Ohio. 5120; Massachusetts,
21,157. due mainly to the targe number ot
chtldien employed in thu textile trade. In
Illinois there lire 1U1T. and In Indiana,
''This tat0 of affairs in the all-Important
matter of child labor, one of tha
greatest scourged of modern industry, H
due to the fat t that Pennsylvania hns
no eivht-hoin child labor law," said Mr.
Furmaii. "Ye havo no law forbidding
night work In the glass Industry and In
tho messongcr sorvloe. Wo have no law
jogulating the street trades of boj's and

We have no proper sstem of regulating
