The Southern Education Society has issued its protest against the child labor which has been so frequently referred to of late in connection with manufacturing enterprises. The moral forces of the States are being enlisted against the imprisonment of half-grown children in the cotton factories, and the question is likely to become a political one. At a recent Democratic convention is South Carolina the following resolution was passed by a two-thirds majority:
"Resolved, that it is the sense of this Convention that the General Assembly of this State should and ought to pass an appropriate law prohibiting the employment of children under twelve years in the manufacturing establishments of the State."
The condition of Porto Rico under the United States rule is represented as being greatly improved. In four hundred years of Spanish power not one schoolhouse was erected, but within two years $200,000 has been expended in the building of schoolhouses, and 126 teachers from the United States are instructing the children, besides a large number of native teachers. In 22 of the new schoolhouses agriculture is taught in a scientific method. It is stated that as many as forty thousand scholars in the schools already speak the English language.
