CHILD LAliOK IN FACTO K IKS.
Some pleasing statistics have
been gathered by State Labor
Commissioner Lacy. It shows
that the evil of child labor in fac
tories is on the decline. Since
1890 the number of spindles in
the State has increased 5J3 l- per
cent. The number of men ope
ratives lias increased more than
100 per cent., the. number of
women 50 per cent, and the num
ber of children has decreased
nearly f0 per cent.
While wo would not advocate a
law forbidding child labor, it
seems too bad to have them con
lined from little up to the neg
lect of mental and physical cul
ture. It is pleasant to note that
the evil is subsiding.
Tt is. of course. better IV) r
them to be in factories than in j
idleness, but childhood is t ho
school period or should bo in
every one's life. When it becomes
a matter for the law we hope it
will look first after fathers who
spend their time in idleness, or
worse, in dissipation, and con
sumo the-wau'es of children, that
ought- to be in school, while the
father should be supporting
them. This is an evil under the
sun of which every worthy
parent should carry a clear con
science. Environments are sometimes
such that it is fortunate that
children can have profitable em
ployment in the factories, and
growing up with textile as well
as literary culture promises the
highest proficiency, and the best
remunerative rewards, but it is
this shiftless dependence of un
worthy and ambitionless fathers
upon the labors of their children
who are deprived of mental de-J
velopment and through constant
confinement are rendered physi
cally weak, that should be en
veighed against, and wo are glad
to note is giving way to a better
sense of humanity.
WHAT IT COST.
It will cost a neat little sum to
attend the Dewey celebration in
New York if the proposition to
to Governor Russell is a fair in
dex. He received a proposition
for a-house well located for view
ing concenciences, etc. The
rental for the occasion is $1000.
Another house of less claims was
offered for sn!0. The houe
would probably accommodate
the whole contingent roivic with
the governor, but the sum h;;ks !
Jules Guerin the head of the
French conspirators who fool-
ishiy resisted arrest and defied
French authorities tor some six
weeks surrendered Wednesday
when he found there would be
no more fooling with him. He
was awfully well prepared to en
joy a good meal. If the revolu
tionists mustdependonsuch fools
as he for leaders it were better
to be loyal to the powers that be.

Who Shot the l.at " at Appomatox
Anent the claims and counter
claims for the honor of firing the
last guns at Appomatox, our
townsman, the Rev. J. S. Dunn,
offers the following:
"On the morning of the sur
render, the L'nd Regiment of-Engineers,
H00 strong, went on 'the
line for the first lime. They
were dressed in dark blue uni
forms, and were from no particu
lar State, but detailed men from
different brigades. AFederal offi
cer rode into their front, through
mistake which lie did not dis
cover till within 10 yards of the
engineers. lie started to es
cape. On refusing to halt, our
company tired a volley. His
horse turned and ran through
our lines and this officer dropped
off dead at the line. There was
nn! nnohmr mm tired.- lor we
surrendered in less than five
minutes after this. This was the
last gun shot, and the last man
killed. We all regretted his
death, forbad he come in in five
minutes lie would have been free.
I belonged to this regiment at
the time of this occurrence, and
was present, at the surrender,
and not over h0 yards from
where the line was formed on a
small hill, where I had the very
best chance to see, and was
placed under Capt. John Gkiise,
quartermaster of engineering de
partment, bv order of secretary
of war. So, if there is any honor
about firing the last gun no
State can claim it.

in our late war with Spain, diar
