that more hours might be worked in certain In 1885 a circular was issued stating that the limit of twelve hours per diem was not to bo imposed where bond power was but was to be confined to manufactories and in which the motive power was No work shops were to come under the clauses of the act that did not employ more than twenty hands in any one The re port says It is likewise to be borne in mind that there is in France no compul sory observance of and no day of habitual rest EFFECTIVE The reports of the French inspectors of labor appear to show that the act of 1848 is very loosely It is even doubtful whether the section limit ing the actual working day to twelve hours was intended to include or exclude hours of rest the legal time is made to exclude rest This mokes the working day so much the one of the French inspectors states that the hours of attendance in factories un der the act of 1848 are from5 in the morning until 7 in the or a total of fourteen out of which there are twelve hours of effective But the same authority also states that effective time often extends to thirteen and fourteen hours in many weaving we are told as a it may be taken that Frenchmen

said to be experienced in getting at the The evidence given before a Belgian royal commission showed that railway guards are sometimes on duty for fifteen and even nineteen and a half hours at a
