THE UNITED 8TATE8 ARE.
Col.- R. T. Mllner that grand old
commoner of East Texas does not be-
lieve a little bit In the United States
being referred to In the singular num-
ber. The Colonel Is a states' right man
to the core and for that reason Is not
willing that our Union should be con-
sidered In any other light except that
It Is made up of separate states each
an' Independent unit with its own
rights and privileges. The Colonel In

Houston Post would remain with us to

up a part of the principle of state
rights here and a part there until all
of them had departed except the
Houston Post. And Just the other
day we. observed the Post referring
with approval to the United 8tates In
the singular number. No sir; no Jet1
fersonian ever aald 'this United
States' or that United States' or
'the United Statea la.' An advocate of
atate rights referring to these United
States in the singular number Is a
mockery. In all reputable political
literature pertaining to these United
States ever written up to a few ars
ago used the plural. It was decided
by the supreme court of these United
States that our government Is com-
posed of separate states with sr-ned
rights and therefore the United
States are plural ami should never be
used in the singular nnWVr. H 's all

CHILD LABOR IN THE STATES.
There are according to the Bulletin
of the National Child Labor Commit-
tee 1850000 working children whose
status cannot be directly affected by
any kind of federal regulation and the
bettering of the condition of these
children presents the major problem
on which the efforta of the committee
are now concentrated. The member-
ship of the committee Is larger than
ever and its resources are more ade-
quate. That ita field Is hroad is
shown by the fact that 28 states per-
mit children to work more than eight
hours a day In stores and other local
establishments; 19 states allow chil-
dren to work at night in such estab-
lishments; 28 statea have no regula-
tion of street work fey children and
20 have poor refutations; 23 states
need night mesaiger laws; 28 states
do not requlikxruedlcal examination of
children forlwork permits; 12 states
have no educational requirements for
work permits and 32 states have
standards lower than the fifth school
grade. One state has no compulsory
education law. Rochester Post-Express.
