[blocks in formation]

At its last session the Fifty-ninth Congress provided for an investigation of the subject of woman and child labor, and this investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Labor. The collection of laws here presented has been prepared for the information and assistance of the experts and special agents engaged on that work, and is intended to include all legislation on the subject in existence at the close of the regular sessions of those legislative bodies that met in the year 1907.

In a few instances laws apparently superseded by later enactments have been omitted, even though they appeared in the volumes consulted in preparing this compilation.

Decisions by the higher State courts as to the construction and application of the laws here presented are not numerous, partly because of the comparatively recent date of their enactment, and partly, perhaps, on account of the methods of enforcement that are prescribed in many instances. The constitutionality of statutes regulating child labor is generally admitted, though with reference to those affecting the employment of adult females there has been greater diversity of opinion. Such opinions of the higher courts as have come to the knowledge of this office have been examined, and brief statements of the points determined are appended to the acts or sections which were the subjects of judicial consideration.
