Excerpt from Child Labor and the Republic

Vice-chairman of the National Child Labor Committee, New York.

The history of efforts for child labor legislation shows that they usually pass through three stages before reaching final success. When an agitation for a child labor law is started the first objection raised to it is that there are no children employed, or not at least any considerable number. After good people have gone to the mines and factories and have counted the children, and have gath ered undeniable data disproving that statement, the next objection that is brought forward is that while there may be some children. Employed, after all such employment is a good thing for the chil dren, and some very eminent men are named as having been employed in their childhood, by reason of which they became very distinguished when grown up.
