Work Is still slack, but we are hoping for better times. Still all shoold
be done by Individual members to
write to friends and relatives to
keep away from Vancouver, aa there
seems to be enough men here to do

One great difficulty- here Is the cost
of bricks. I do not know If any notice waa taken of my remark. In the

Organised labor baa not reached
the* point where it make, demand,
of such a nature that will protect
women and children workers. There
are np factory laws, save those Which
exist for the good of the factory
owners. The employes are never
considered in these laws.
According to the official statistics for 1903, there were 41,450 Children, male and female, from eight
to fourteen years old, employed In
various factories of Japan. This
estimate we may regard as rather
conservative, since there are no laws
and no persons to compel a truthful
report about the matter. These children work from twelve to seventeen
hours a day. Twelve hour. I* the
regular working day, but this day is
often stretched into fifteen and seventeen hours. !!*.���*�������������> \tedj  ���
The wages of the children vary according to the kind of work done, the
average wage being from seven to
ten sen. In match and paper factories the wage la from four to Ave sen
a day. The moat miserably paid
workers, however, are in the glass
factories, and the conditions under
which children work there are no
less miserable and cruel. --
>s In the largest glass factory in
Japan, In the City of Osaka, for Inst ance, wII1 be found young chil dren
of from eight to thirteen years of
age, who are veriuble slaves to
their masters, the employers, and the
apprenticeship and serve their masters as faithfully as waa in their
power. In the glass factories they
are apprenticed by parent., who
trust to the wisdom of the employers,
and never doubt their ability to care
for and teach a trade to their children, nor do they question the employers' rights In their method, of
forcing the greatest amount of labor
possible from the young toilers. On
the other hand, the children are'too
young to know anything about organisation, and the Idea of rebellion,
Thft children work with nothing on
