The occasion of the interference of the Govern- [Government] ment [men] in the matter has arisen thus, There could not be a moment's doubt as to the intention of the Legislature, that the labour of young persons and wonien [women] in factories should be testricted [restricted] to 58 hours per week , ten hours per day for the first five working days of the week, and eight hours on Saturdays and also; that thése [these] periods of labour should be continuous, (meal times only excepted,) and not by shifts or relays. Of these intentions there could be no déubt [doubt] nor could any be enter- [entertained] tained [gained] that it was also intended that add the young persons and women employed in a mill should com- [commence] mence [fence] work at the same time in the morning, and give up at the samedime [sometimes] in the evening. But un- [unfortunately] fortunately for these intentions, the Act set apart the time from half-past five e'clock in the morning till half-past eight in the evening as the period persons and women in his employ for ten heurs. [hours] Some of the millowners, [milliners] taking advantage of this circumstance, and of the looseness of expression in some of the sections of the Act, worked their mills by shifts of hands, and thus actually caused the young persons and women in their employ to dance attendance on the mill for che whole of the Jifteen [Often] hours, although they were actually'at work no longer than ten hours in any one day. Conflict ing decisions, as to the legality or otherwise of this practice, were given by different benches of magis- [magic- magistrates] trates [rates] some holding with the AfrorneY [Attorney] and that the practice was unlaw- [unlawful- unlawful] ful, [full] and others that it was not any infringement of the Act. At length a ease was taken into one of the superior courts for the decision of the Judges ; and the Judges, while they admitted that there could be no doubt as to the intention of the Legis- [Legs- Legislature] lature, [nature] yet as that intention was not expressly carried out in words-as the Act did not in express terms prohibit the practice of shifts, they could net travel out of the Act, and couid [could] not pronounce the practice to be illegal. It was under these circumstances that the Par- [Parliament] liament [Parliament] was again called on to interfere. The operatives demanded, and in our opinion rightfully demanded, that the Legislature should do what they had failed to do before-give effect to its well- [Wilkinson] known, undeniable intentions, And hence the in- [introduction] troduction [production] of Lord ASHLEY's Bill, to declare what those intentions were. The object of that bill was, as will at once be seen, to put an end to the shift or relay system to render it illegal to resort to it. And if this could have been done without disturb- [disturbing] ing any of the enactments of the Factories Acts- [Acts without] without interfering with any of the formerly- [formerly settled] settled points-ne doubt but a large majority of Parliament would have veted [vested] for it, on the ground that parliamentary faith must be kept. But it was found that this could not be done. There was the settled point that a mill might be opened for young persons and women at half- [half past] past five in the morning, and not closed against those classes of workers before half-past eight in the evening and it was found that with this arrange- [arrangement] ment [men] as to time remaining as it was, the shift sys- [says- system] tem [te] could not be prevented. Under these circum- [circus- circumstances] stances Lord AsHLEY, [Ashley] with the full approval of the operatives and their delegates, introduced a clause into his new Bill which would have altered the times of the mills opening and closing, as formerly settled. And this entirely changed the aspect of affairs. Many that would have felt bound to vote for a mere declaratory Act, on the principle before laid down, felt now set at liberty. They said this is not now an attempt to DECLARE what was the meaning of a former Act, but an at- [attempt] tempt to.amend an Act, and if the Act is to be amended -if the question is to be thus opened, why, while we may not agree with your amend- [amendments] ments, [rents] we may have amendments of our own to propose and support. At this juncture the government stepped in with a proposal, in the hope to satisfy both parties-the employers and employed. That proposal is, that mills shall not open for young persons and women before six o'clock in the morning, nor continue open after six o'clock in the evening; and that during that period one hour and a half shall be allowed for meals. This will make the period actually worked ten and a half hours and this arrange- [arranged] is to be for the first five working days of the week. On Saturday the millis [mills] to be open at the same hour in the morning, six, but to close at two ix the afternoon; the working hours of the week being thus 60 instead of 58, as formerly fixed. Regarding this proposal, Lord has addressed the following letter to the factory ope- [operatives] ratives, [natives] which is well worthy of their most serious and dispassionate attention - GENTLEMEN,-It has become my duty to State to you, without further delay, the course that I would advise you to pursue in the present position of the Factory Bill in the House of Commons. eo . I am bound to act as your friend, and not as your dele- [dale- delegate] gate and I counsel you, therefore, to accept forthwith the propositions made by Her Majesty's Government as the only means of solving the difficulties in which we are now placed. a I wish most heartily for your sakes that they contained an unqualified limitation to 10 hours daily but I am in- [induced] duced, [duce] nevertheless, for the following reasons, to give you that counsel . 1, The dispute is now limited to a struggle about two hours in the week-whether the aggregate toil shall be 58 or 60 hours the Government plan requiring the two addi- [add- additional] tional [national] hours, but giving an equivalent in exchange 2. The plan imposes a most important and beneficial limitation of the range over which the work may be taken, reducing it from 15 to 12 hours in the day, thereby pre- [preventing] venting all possibility of shifts, relays, and other evasions- [evasionsaresult] aresult [result] which cannot be attained by any other form of enactment. This has always been my strong conviction, and I carried the question by the separate divisions in 1844, 8. It secures to the working people, for recreation and domestic duty, the whole of every evening after 6 o'clock. 4. It provides for a later of work by half an hour in the morning, . . 5, It insures additional leisure timé [time] on every Saturday, 6; Because this arrangement would secure, I believe, the co-operation of the employers-a matter of no slight im- [in- importance] portance [importance] in the good working of any measure and essential to the harmony and good feeling we all desire to see inthe [another] vast districts of our manufacttires, [manufacturers] . . But there are other reasons, drawn from the embarrass- [embarrassments] ments [rents] of our present position. I have already describéd [described] to you in a former letter the nesessity [necessary] I have been under (after making many essays and taking many learned opinions) of introducing a clause to prohibit relays, which contains new matter snd [and] imposes fresh restrictions. This unavoidable step on my part sets at liberty many members who considered themselves engaged to maintain the honour of Parliament, and thus endangers the success of the.mea- [] gure [sure] ultimately, and certainly the progress of it in the within which the employer could work the young present session. lis [is] reas, [read] even were the bill unopposed, 1 would be diffreult [difficult] under the heavy pressure of public busi-; [bus] ness; but opposed as it would be, postponement would be inevitable. Now, I greatly fear delay; I refrain from - stating my reasons; but I tepeat, [repeat] 1 greatly fear'delay, as likely to be productive of infinite mischiet, [mischief] and which may possibly completely alter your relative and active position. I have tried to discover the bright side of postponement but I cannot perceive any advantage in it whatsoever. You will stand no better in the next session than you do in this; you may possibly stand worse. The two hotrs [hours] art, I know, your unquestionable right ; but, on the other hand, the range of 15 hours is the mques- [ques- questionable] tionable [unable] right of the employers the exchange they offer is fair, and the gain is on your side. In giving this counsel, I know that I shall be exposed to sad misrepreséntations; [misrepresentations] but it is my duty not to do that which will secure applause to myself, but that which will. secury [secure] protection to your families and children. I should be overjoyed to obtain for you thé [the] full concession of the two hours in the week, but such an issue seems to my mind next to impossible and in the protracted struggle to reach the 10, you incur the hazard of being brought to 11 'hours. Postponement must follow conflict; division among the operatives will follow postponement; and when once you are a divided body your cause will be irretrievably lost. Té will be necessary to insert the word children into the tlause [clause] introduced by Sir George Gréy, [Grey] in order that the youngest workers may be sure to enjoy the benefit of the close of the daily labour at 6 o'etock. [o'stock] With this view I shall accept the amendment preposed by the Minister, in the humble but assured hope that the issue will be blessed to the moral and soeial [social] amelioration of your great community. i am, Gentlemen, Your faithful friend and servant, May 7. ASHLEY. The Shett [Sheet] Time Committees of Lancashire and Yorkshire. In connection with Lord AsHLEy's [Ashley's] letter, we would bid the factory operatives to remember the fable of thé [the] dog and the shadow. He had the bone but, not being content, he grasped at the shadow, and lost both In the scheme proposed, the operatives have, substantially, the Ten Hours' Bill they have the utter annihilation of the repre- [prepare- reprehensible] hensible [sensible] and most irritating shift system; they have the mill closed (as far as young persons and women are concerned) at such a period of the evening as will admit of time for school, for me- [mechanics] chanics' [Mechanics] institutes, for domestic teachings and, during the summer months, for a quiet stroll through the green lanes and country walks, to breathe the fresh breezes of heaven, admire the floral and ceral [Cereal] beauties of the earth, and join in a heart-felt chorus of thanksgiving with the warbling choristers of the woods and air. In addition to this, there is the half-day holiday for the last day of the week and which, to the young female generation will be an inestimable boon. What opportunity of teaching domestic duties and cares such an arrangement will present, compared with one that would keep young persons in the mill to a later period of that day. Thousands, in the first case, will have to take their share of cleaning-up at home,-will be enabled to learn to fetile, [fertile, fertile] who would otherwise have no such opportunity and many will be enabled to engage in the kneading and baking of bread, who would otherwise know nothing of those processes. We say that in this proposal of Government the operatives have the substance-THE BONE; let them not lose it by grasping after the shadow. By rejecting the pre- [present] sent proposed mutual settlement they will let loose the whole question and the great probability that the next proposal for its settlement would not be nearly so advantageous for them. We strongly advise them, therefore, to adopt and act on the sound advice so honestly and so faithfully given to them by Lord Asutey. [Aster] Since the preceding was in type, we learn that Lord Joun [John] Manners, who is associated with Lord ASHLEY in the conduct of the Bill in the Commons, has expressed his partial dissatisfaction with the course pursued by his colleague. On Thursday evening the following occurred in the House of Commons - .. Lord J. MANNERS thought it would be fer the conve- [cone- convenience] nience [science] of thé [the] House that he should state the course which he.intended to pursue with reference to this measure. He did not propose to make any statement on the present posi- [post- position] tion [ion] of the bill, but he agreed with his noble friend who had hitherto taken charge of the measure, and who had announced his intentions publicly, though not as yet to that Horse, that the framework of the proposition brought forward by Her Majesty's Ministers was more likely to produce a beneficial result than the framework of the measure which he and his noble friend had introduced. Thus far he agreed with his noble friend, and he was repared [prepared] to accept, with him, the machinery by which er Majesty's Government proposed to carry out the object they had in view. But beyond that his concurrence with his noble friend did not go, and therefore, on the bringing up of the report, he would move that half-past five be substituted for 'six o'clock in the evenine-an [evening-an] alteration which, in point of fact, would make the propo- [prop- proposal] sal of the Government an effective Ten Hours Bill. (Hear hear). He would say no more than that he conceived the honour of that House and the rights of the people were in passing an effective Ten Hours Bill. (Hear, . Well, to this course we can have no objection. The Bill will have passed through Committee, and the proposal of Sir Gsorez [Sores] Grey will have been agreed to, before the report is brought up and then will come the test whether the day's-labour of young persons and women shall be ten or ten-and- [and] a-half [half] hours. If Lord Jonny Manners succeed, no doubt an effective Ten Hours' Bill will be the result. If he should not succeed, the Government proposal still stands, and the hateful shift system is as effectually stopped. Let the measure, therefore, go as it may, the parties included within the ope- [operation] ration of the Factories Acts will know to a certainty when the mill 1 can open and when it must close, as far as they are concerned. They will no longer be liable to be shifted on and off to their work; until fifteen hours of the twenty-four are consumed. Remember that the difference now is but two hours out of six days not two hours out of twenty- [twenty] four hotirs.
