Contest Transferred to Commit-
tee and Floor 0. Senate
Baldwin Asks for More Time, but Is
Turned Down by the House—
Measure Relating to Churches
Is Defeated.
(Special Harrisburg Correspondence)
Harrisburg, — The House passed
firally and sent to the Senate the
bills to regulate the hours and con-
ditions of work of women and chil-
dren, defeating a motion to make the
bills a special ‘order. This motion
was made by R. J. Baldwin, Delaware,
who said that members desired to
study the measures in more datail
because they vitally affected the in-
dustries' of the State. To this Mr.
Walnut, sponsor of the bills, retorted
that the bills had been given full
hearings and had been on the calen-
dars for weeks. The caild labor bill
fi¥es fourteen as the age limit and
provides that no one between four-
teen and sixteen may work more than
eight hours a day, while those be-
tween sixteen and eighteen may not
bi: worked more than nine hours. The
vote on this bill was 180 to 2. The
: female’ labor bill fixes a nine hour
day. The vote on it was 182 to 6.
Fight in the Senate.
The big fight on some of the more
radical provisions of the bills will be
rade in the Senate and before the
Senate Committee to which they will
be referred. Not even all labor inter-
ests’ are united on all provisions of
the measures, there having developed
a serious split in the ranks of the
State Federation of Labor over cer-
tain provisions which the members
of the Glass Blowers’ Union declare
are directed against that industry.
Manufacturers take the stand that in
view of radical readjustment of in-
dustrial conditions that must follow
the passage of the employers’ liabil-
ity and workmen’s compensation law,
and the terrific onslaughts of the tar-
iff tinkerers, it would be unwise and
work as much hardship to the worker
| as to the employer to enact any radi-
cal legislation changing. the hours of
labor at this time. Their side will
be set forth at a hearing to be hsld
in the very near future.
Minimum Wage, Too.
The bill designed to create a mini-
| mum wage commission was passed
by the House by 155 to 18, and goes
to the Senate. The bill provides for
a commission of threes, to be named
by the Governor, to investigate and
establish minimum wages for females
over sixteen and children under six-
teen. The bill was advocated by Mr.
Bigger, Allegheny, who spoke of the
manner In which such a law had
operated in other States. Mr. Spang-
ler York, declared the idea Utopian
and said it could not be worked out
: Church Bill Defeated.
The bill to require that all church
property and that all contributions
be held and administered according
tc the canons of the denomination
was defeated by 81 to 98 after an
hour’s debate. Objection was made
to the bill on the groumd that it
might have far reaching conse-
quences.. This was denied by advo-
cates of the bill, who said that it
would work no hardship. and that
there was no possibility. of any union
of Church and State under it.
House Proceedings.
Representative Kitts, of Erie, ob-
jected to presentation of additional
bills, giving notice after two haé been
handed in by unanimous consent,
that he would object in future on the
ground that the House had set March
17 as the last day for new bills and
an unprecedented number was before
