Commissioner "Wright, of the, Bureau of
Labor, has made a report on "Working
"Women in Great Cities." Their condition,
as ascertained by interviews, is summar
ized. The average weekly earning in vari
ous sections of the country are given. The
health of many has been greatly affected
since commencing work. The character of

Washington, January 31. Carroll D.
"Wricht, Commissioner of the Department of
Labor, has submitted a report which relatss
entirely to the subject of "Working 'Women
in Great Cities." Three hundred and forty
two distinct industries in 22 representative
cities nave been investigated. The report
shows that the working women in the great
cities are practically girls. The average age
in all cities comprehended is 22 years and T
months. The highest average age is found
in Charleston, S. C. 25 years and 1 month.
The lowest average is in St. Paul 21 years
and 5 months. It is found, however, that
the concentration is greatest at the age of
18, there being of the whole number inter
viewed, 1.5G9 of that age.
The general average age at beginning
work is shown to be 15 years and 4 months,
the highest average being 17 years and 10
months, and the lowest 14 years and 7
months, the former at San Jose, Cal., and
the latter at .Newark, .N. J. The average
per cent during which the women have been
engaged in their present occupations is
shown to be 4 years and 9 months, and that
of the 17,427 wome'h, 9t470 are engaged in
their first trial at earning their own living.
FOBEIGX ASD XATIYE.
Of the whole number 14,120 are native
born. In the foreign born, Ireland is most
largely represented, and Germay is next,
having 775. Of the native born 12,904 had
foreign-born fathers, and 12,406 foreign
born mothers. A great majority of the
women comprehended in the report are sin
gle, the number being 15,387; only 745 are
married,tand 1,038 widowed. The working
women, then, says the report, are, as a rule,
single women, fighting their industrial fight
alone. They are not only supporting them
selves, but are giving their earnings largely
to the support of others at home.
Of the whole number under consideration
9,813 not only work at their regular oecuDa
tions but assist in the housework at home,
the total numbtr living at home being 14,
918. That is to say a very large proportion
of the working women ol the great cities are
under home influences. More than half the
whole 8,754 gave their earnings to the home
life. They contribute to the general sup
port It was found that 4.2G7 pay board at
their own homes and only 701 receive board
at the hands of their families. The average
number of persons in the families of work
ing women is 5.25, each of which has on an
average 2.48 members.
rrrzcT ok health.
The report shows that of the 17,426 who
reported their health conditions at the time
they commenced work, 1G.360 were in good
health, 883 were in in lair health and 183 in
bad health. The changes in health condi
tion is illustrated by the fact that 14,554 are
now in good health, 22,385 are in fair health
and 489 are in bad health. The tables dis
close no particular facts relative to the
health changes in the different cities or by
industries. In home conditions, 12,020 re
port themselves comfortable, while 4,C!)3
state that the home conditions are poor, and
"poor" in this investigation, says the com
missioner, is poor indeed. In shop condi
tions, however, a better state ot affairs
The tables upon earnings and lost time
show that of the 13.822 who reported, 373
earn less than S100 per annum, and this
class lost an average of SG.5 days for the
year covered. The largest number earn $200
and nnder 250 per annum, losing 37.8 days;
2.377 earn from 250 to 5300, losing 3L5
days. As earnings increase the lost time
decreases, as for instance, 39S earn from
S350 to 500 a year, and this class lost but
18.8 days. These earnings are actual earn
ings, and are not statements derived from
computations based on the rates of wages.
The average weekly earnings by cities is
given as follows: Atlanta, 54 05; Baltimore,
4 18; Boston, 5 C4; Brooklvn, 5 7C; Buf
falo, 4 27; Charleston, 4 22; Chicago, 5 74,

6 02; San Francisco, G 91; San Jose, 6 11;
Savannah, 4 99. Average for all cities,
Upon the subject of "Character of the
working women" the Commissioner, among
other things, says: "From all that can be
learned one need not hesitate in asserting
that the working women of this country are
as honest and as virtuous as any other class
of our citizens. The social standing of
working women is becoming better and bet
- "The honest working woman, engaged in
honest labor, is entitled to the respect of all
honest-minded people. She should be wel
come in the churches of the cities and
should be drawn into the best associations
where social and moral surroundings would
aid her in cultivating her own self-respect
At least it shonld not be possible to class
her as the 'iorgotten woman," for her
struggle is to heroic, her hardships too pain
ful, her lot too dreary for Christain people
to thoughtlessly pass her by."
The Farmer ond Mechanics' Bank Could
Not Get a Buyer Yritcrdar.
The assignee's sale of the Farmers and
Mechanics' Bank, on the Southside, com
menced yesterday morning at 10 o'clock.
There were a number of people at the bank,
but most of them had come out of curiosity
only, and when Auctioneer Krause an
nounced that he was ready for bids there
was but a very slow response.
The property is 40x120 feet and consists
of the bank building proper, two stores and
a lot in the rear.
After considerable bidding, Mr. A C.
Jarrett at last offered 29,000 for the prop
erty. The assignees were not satisfied with
that, and they offered the property in parts,
but with the same success. Then they were
asked to put the whole property up once
more, and Mr. H.C. Gearing offered 531,500.
It was still decided, however, not to let it
go for that and the sale adjourned until
next Thursday morning.
It was understood afterward that Mr.
James Campbell, the" President, and Mr.
George Cak the Secretary, of the Window
Glass "Workers' Association, had several
men there to bid on the building, and the
highest offer lor the entire property of 31,
500 was made in the interest of the glass
This fact and several remarks which were
made by Mr. Campbell, give again credence
to the statement made in The Dispatch a
few months ago that the glassworkers are
contemplating the establishment ot a bank,
although the other papers denied it then.
During the afternoon the sale of the
property of the bank in the Twenty-seventh
ward was commenced, but owing to the
weather it had also to be adjourned. A
brick house was sold, however, to 'Squire
Hartman for 2,600, and a lot of 21x76 was
disposed of for 300 The sale will be con
tinued next Thursday.

The Central Traffic Association Reorgan

where he attended the railroad meeting to
reorganize the Central Traffic Association.

reorganized on a new basis and other roads

The work of the Committee on Reorgan

signed a compact to maintain steady rates
and obey the inter-State law in every par

the head of the association at a salary not
yet fixed, bnt it is safe to say he will get the
increase he asks for.
There will be another meeting of the roads
in Chicago in a week or so to arrange the
minor details. At last it is definitely set
tled that the Central Traffic Association will
not be dissolved. AVhen properly managed

Berks, Lancaster and Bucks. The amendment
cannot be enforced in such counties as these
for want of public sentiment without which
no law can be enforced, no matter how Btrlct
the penalty. Now, In the western and north
western counties of the State tho amendment
can be readily enforced. Even in the city of
Philadelphia there will not be much difficulty
In enforcing the new law, because tho people
there seem to be largely in sympathy with the
movement against whisky. But there would
be trouble in carrying tho amendment into
effect in Pittsburg and adjacent boroughs.
There the people are an entirely different Class
from those found in Philadelphia.
THE POINT ILLUSTRATED.
To make my point clearer, here is an illustra
tion. There is, I believe, still upon the statutes
of Pennsylvania an old law prohibiting the cir
culation of notes in less denominations than S3
bills. East of the mountains the people in
early days were in sympathy with the idea and
it was enforced. Public sentiment was with
the law there But in Western Pennsylvania
public sentiment was against it and it was
never enforced over here. Indeed, I think a
grand jury in Erie pronounced the law a public
The amendment is reasonably sure of adop
tion at the June election. Up until last spring
I bad always believed that such a measure
would be defeated If put to a popular vote in
Pennsylvania. But it was then when I discov
ered how strong the popular feeling in Phila
delphia is against the rum-seller and his dis
reputable business. I was surprised at first at
so deep-rooted a sentiment in so popular a city,
but by the way the great reduction in the num
ber of saloons under the Brooks law was en
dorsed by public opinion there, I came to tho
conclusion that bad the judges refused every
license in the city a majority of the citizens
would have supportea the court It has been
enforced there, too. better than in Pittsburg.
If the same sentiment continues to increase
until June, Philadelphia will give powerful
aid to the western counties in voting for tho
THE LEGAL FEATUEES.
Inclining to the belief that Justice Gordon
knew more about the legal phases of the
great problem, than of political possibilities,
I propounded these questions to him.
First Will not an endless amount of litiga
tion be entailed by the enforcement of the
amendment, if it is carried?
Second What treatment will the linuor men's
claim for compensation meet with if it is raised
after their property is rendered valueless by the
Third-In the interim between the passage of
the amendment and the enactment of legisla
tion to carry it into effect, bow will the liquor
traffic be dealt with?
These were answered by the Judge as fol
lows: Of course the new law will be violated, as all
other laws are, and bow will a penalty be en
forced if not by prosecutions ? Litigation is to
be expected to a greater or less extent. We
have laws against murder and robbery, jet
there are murders and robberies just the same.
And it will be the same with liquor. Thero
will probably bo places where it can be bought
and sold in secret. They must be dealt with
just as violators of other laws are punished. I
want to see tne amendment passed. Aimougn
I would have preferred local option, stiil I will
vote for this measure and use my influence
with others for it
As to the claim for compensation for ruined
liquor investments, that is empty and absurd.
The Supreme Court of the United States has
already settled that question in the Kansas
proniDition cae. me supreme court ot tins
State has decided on the same principle in the
olcomargerine cases. I beard a Pittsburg at

their extent, and that if the Legislature desired
it could prohibit the manufacture of steel to
encourage the manufacture of iron. The Leg

Now, about the lack of legislation to imme
diately carry Into effect the amendment if it
psses. That is a matter of vast importance,

A POXDEEOUS CALL.
In Jefferson county all classes are aroused
in the interest of the amendment I was
shown a call that has just been issued for a
convention of citizen;iaj Jje Brookville
Presbyterian ehurch. ncjiiTu'es'day evening
to organize the county for tne campaign.
It is admitted to be the strongest document
ever issned in the county. The signatures
of 42 of the leading Republicans and Dem
ocrats, the heaviest business men and the
most influential people generally are signed
to this call. Justice Gordon's name is at
tached thereto. Among the other signa
tures are those of George T. Rogers, a sharp
Republican politician and banker; S. H.
"Whitehill and T. C. Lawson, both ex
Chalrmen of the Democratic County Com
mittee; JB. Henderson, one of the shrewd
est politicians in Western Pennsylvania,
the same man who outgeneraled Westmore
land and Armstrong counties in the hot
Congressional contest some time ago; N". B.
Lane, a capitalist heavily interested in pro
ducing lumber; J. B. Henderson, President
of the Brookville National Bank; W. B.
Alexander, a banker at Reynoldsville; W.
L. McCracken, a Democratic politician so
shrewd that he has given the Bepublicans
more trouble than any one other man in the
county; Austin Blakeslee, foreman of the
Coalglenn Mining Companv and a whole
host of attorneys led by C. J. Gordon. The
call embraces three-fourths of the active
politicians of the entire coanty.
The county is sure to give from 800 to
1,000 majority for the amendment Jeffer
son adopted local option in 1873 by a good
majority, and the Prohibition vote had in
creased from 112 for St John to something
over 200 for Fisk.
A TEBT GOOD TEST VOTE.
But the matter has been practically de
cided already. Two years ago Dr. William
Altmaa, Republican, and Mr. O. Miller,
Democrat, were rival candidates for Jeffer
son's seat jn the Pennsylvania House of
Representatives. Although the county is
Republican, it was conceded on all hands
that Miller was the most popular man. He
is an old soldier, and has but one leg. The
State Republican Convention in the mean
time pledged the party to support a sub
mission resolution in the Legislature, Jef
fersonians at once asked Candidates Miller
and Altnian to say in a public way whether
they would support the resolntion. Miller
evaded the question. Altman replied can
didly that he would. Miller was fonnd to
be on the applications of four or five liquor
dealers for licenses.
Altman was elected easily, although had
it not been for this question. Miller would
have won by 500 majority, so popular was
he. He was the first crippled soldier Jeffer
son ever defeated.
There are still quite a number of licensed
honses, but they will have little or no influ
ence on the election. Lumbering and coal
mining are the chief industries of the
county outside of agriculture. Hon.
Galusha A. Grow's coal mines are exten
tensive. At other coal pits are employed
some Hungarians and Italians, but their in
fluence will be offset by the English and
Irish miners, all of whom belong to the M.
E. Church. Snyder township and Brock
away borough, two of the mining districts,
are solid for prohibition.
Tilden had a majority in Jefferson. This
changed to a majority of 112 for Garfield.
