Canal-Boat Children

In colonial America, child labor was not a subject of controversy. Children were an integral part of the agricultural economy. Not only did children labor on the homestead, they also were hired out to other farmers by their parents. It was not unusual for boys to begin their apprenticeship in a designated trade by the time they were ten years of age. Benjamin Franklin, for example, was apprenticed to work as a printer’s assistance for his older brother at the age of twelve. In the early nineteenth century, child apprenticeships declined, but with the onset of the Industrial Revolution in the United States and the influx of Irish in the 1840s and southern and eastern Europeans after 1880, minors often found factory employment. Children were ideal factory workers because they were paid a fraction of an adult’s wages, were easily managed, and were very difficult for labor unions to organize. By 1900, 18 percent of children between the ages of ten and fifteen were gainfully employed. Moreover, 25 percent of workers in southern cotton mills were below the age of fifteen, some as young a six or seven. Although many child workers labored in horrendous conditions, their incomes were vital for families who lived in dire poverty.canal boat

Attempts to prohibit child labor began prior to the Civil War. By 1863, seven states had passed laws limiting the hours of child workers to forty-eight per week, but often the laws were not strictly enforced. The use of child labor continued to rise throughout the late nineteenth century. In 1900, the national census revealed that 1,750,178 children between the ages of ten and fifteen were employed, an increase of more than one million since 1870. At the turn of the century, outraged middle-class progressives mounted a vigorous campaign to stamp out child labor. Armed with an array of statistics documenting the widespread use of child labor and poignant photographs dramatizing the poor working conditions of child laborers, the reformers lobbied states to end the practice. By 1914, reformers had persuaded nearly every state legislature to ban the employment in factories of young children, generally defined as under the age of fourteen, and to limit hours of work for older minors. However, child labor persisted as too many businessmen reaped excessive profits, too many politicians and judges were reluctant to regulate or intervene in the practice, and too many parents depended upon their children’s labor for survival. As a result, it became clear that the states could not effectively curb child labor and progressives lobbied Congress, seeking federal legislation that would end child labor once and for all.

In 1916, the Children’s Bureau undertook and published a series of studies of the conditions under which children worked in specific industries and occupations. The bureau chronicled boy mine workers in Pennsylvania, ten-year-olds working nearly all night making artificial flowers in grimy urban tenements, and barefoot children slaving in the hot southern sun picking onions, Page 274 | Top of Article cotton, and beets. That year, the Keating-Owen Child Labor Act was implemented, which barred interstate commerce in goods manufactured by the labor of children under the age of sixteen. Congress authorized the Children’s Bureau to administer the new law, but the U.S. Supreme Court, in Hammer v. Dagenhart (1918), ruled the law unconstitutional. The court held that although children needed protection, the federal law intruded upon the ability of the states to regulate their own child labor laws. The Children’s Bureau continued to investigate child labor violations, and in 1938 much of the exploitation was prohibited under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

SYNOPSIS: In 1921, the Children’s Bureau received information of children living on canal boats on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which extends 185 miles from Washington, D.C., to Cumberland, Maryland. The bureau investigated and found that although the number of children were few, the “living and working conditions presented unusually serious problems.” The following article, written by Ethel M. Springer, sheds light on one facet of the child labor and welfare problem.

The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal extends from Washington, DC, to Cumberland, Md., along the eastern bank of the Potomac River, a distance of 185 miles, with an ascent of 609 feet which is overcome by means of 75 locks. The canal varies in width at the surface from 55 to 65 feet and at the bottom from 30 to 42 feet and has a depth of 6 feet throughout. The open season lasts approximately nine months, from early March till December. During the winter months it is customary to drain the canal to prevent damage which might be caused by freezing.

The principal cargo has always been bituminous coal mined in the mountains about Cumberland, which is transported to Georgetown. Boatmen said that they averaged two round trips a month, the distance from Cumberland to Georgetown being covered from six to eight days, and the return trip in from four to six days. Practically all the traffic at the time of the study was conducted by one company which owned the boats and employed captains to operate them. The policy of this company was to give preference to married men on the ground that a married man is steadier in his job than a single man, and that the presence of his wife and children on a boat raises the moral tone. For the year 1920, the company reported that all but 7 of the 66 captains oil its pay roll were married men.

Of the 59 captains who were married, 41 were found who had their children with them during the season studied. The number of children found accompanying their families was 135 (70 boys and 65 girls); of these, 48 were under 7 years of age. In addition to these children there were found on canal boats 7 boys who wore employed as deck hands by captains to whom they were not related. One of Page 275 | Top of Article these boys was 11 years of age, four were 14, one was 15, and one 16 years of age. It is known that not all the families were located and interviewed and it is probable that the number of independent child workers found is still less indicative of the actual number on the canal boats, inasmuch as they were even more difficult to locate than families.

The operation of canal boats is an occupation handed down from father to son. Said one mother: “The children are brought up on the boat and don’t know nothin’ else, and that is the only reason they take up ‘boating.’ Boys work for their fathers until they are big enough to get a boat of their own, and it’s always easy to get a boat.” Several men complained that they knew “nothing else” and realized that their children would have the same disadvantage. Most of the fathers had begun boating before they were 13 years of age; but since the majority had begun by helping their own fathers they did not become “captains” at an especially early age, many of them not until they were 25 years or over. Four men, however, had become captains before they were 16. The mother of one of these had died when he was 12 years of age, leaving $2,100 in cash to each of 14 children. The boy boated for one season with an older brother, receiving as compensation for the season’s work, an overcoat, a “made” (as distinguished from homemade) suit of clothes, and $7.50. When he was 14 he bought his own boat and team of mules and became an independent captain. During the first season he saved $700 and “lived like a lord.” He began with practically no education, and though he had been a captain for 54 years he had never learned to read and write. Several of his sons became boatmen and at the time of the study a 16-year-old grandson was boating with him.

All the captains included in the study were native white. Seven were illiterate. Their wives also were all native white. Five of them were illiterate. One captain, who had begun boating with his father when he was 5 years of age, said that altogether he had gone to school only 29 months. By the time he reached the fourth grade the children of his own age had long since completed the grammar grades and he was ashamed to go into classes with younger boys and girls. He seemed to regret his own lack of education and said that when his little girl was old enough to go to school he should stop boating.

in driving the mules and in steering the boat. The mules are harnessed tandem to two long ropes or “lines” attached to the bow of the boat. From two to five mules are used by “spells,” two or three mules being stabled in the fore cabin at rest while the others draw. The boathands take turns at driving, either walking beside the mules or riding the leader. Although the captains usually do some of the driving, especially if the boat travels at night, they consider it a child’s job during the day. In dry weather the towpath, which is level except at the approaches to the locks, is well beaten down and easy to walk on, but in summer the work is wearisome and hot. In wet weather the path is muddy and slippery, and consequently shoes and clothing get very hard wear. One captain considered himself the best father on the canal because he provided his boys with rubber boots.

Steering the boat is accomplished by means of the “stick” located on the quarter-deck at the stern of the boat. This controls the rudder or “paddle,” and may be guided by the pilot standing or sitting against it. As there is practically no current to change the direction of the boat, the operation is very simple and the mother of the family often steers while doing household tasks that permit. A young child can steer a light boat, as the stick moves easily, but to steer loaded boats requires strength. The only complications in steering occur at the locks or when other canal boats are passed.

Locks are 15 feet wide and approximately 100 feet long. The usual method of opening and shutting Page 276 | Top of Article

them is by pushing heavy beams which extend from the swinging gates on each side. At the time of the study the lock tenders were mostly old men who were assisted by the women and children of their families; the boat workers, however, frequently helped to operate the locks as it is sometimes necessary for several persons to brace themselves against the beams of the gates.… Boats approach the locks so slowly that the steersman has ample time to fit the boat into the lock. Careful calculation, however, is required as the locks are only one foot wider than the boats.… A severe jolt against the wall of the lock has been known to sink a boat. When the boat is in the lock, the boatmen untie the mules and make the boat fast by wrapping ropes around heavy posts which are driven deep into the ground near the lock wall. After a lock is filled or emptied the boatmen pull in their ropes and steer the boat through. If another boat is waiting to enter a lock as one leaves it, great care must be exercised by the steersmen of both boats.

Hours of Boat Work

Hours of travel on the canal were practically continuous. Fifteen hours a day was the minimum reported by any of the boat families; 18 was the number of hours most frequently reported; and several families stated they worked longer. One family had operated its boat without taking any intervals for rest. “It never rains, snows, or blows for a boatman, and a boatman never has no Sundays,” explained one father. “We don’t know it’s Sunday,” said another, “till we see some folks along the way, dressed up and a-goin’ to Sunday school.” One captain and his wife who reported working 15 hours a day employed no crew but depended on the assistance of two children, a girl 14 years of age and a boy of 5. The girl did almost all the driving, usually riding mule-back, and the parents steered. The little boy helped with the driving, but did not drive for more than a mile or two at a time. The boat was kept moving until the girl could drive no longer, then the boat was tied up for the night. “We’d boat longer hours if the driver felt like it,” said the father.…

Boat Work Done by Children

Only the limitations of their physical strength prevented children from performing all operations connected with canal boats. Consequently when they reported that they had done boat work it meant that they had assisted in all parts of the work. The older children, of course, bore heavier burdens than the younger.

… [Ninety-four] children, or all except 7 of those over 6 years of age, were found assisting in the work. Twenty-one of the children of the children had begun to help when they were not more than 6 years of age, and 8 of these had begun when not more than 5. The following stories illustrate the life of the boat children.

One of the boating households consisted of four persons—;the captain and his assistant “deck hand,” the captain’s wife, and their 11-year-old daughter. The child had been driving, steering, and doing housework for “several years,” but she did not like boating and got very lonely. Her father said that she could do anything the “hand” could do, but he felt it necessary to hire a man because, as he put it, “you have to rest once in a while.” “The women and children are as good as the men,” he said. “If it weren’t for the children the canal wouldn’t run a day.” The girl’s school attendance for the year 1920–21 had been 89 days out of 177, or 50 percent of the school term.

An 11-year-old boy who had been helping his father since he was 6 years old had become his father’s “right-hand man.” This boy was one of a family Page 277 | Top of Article of seven children, two older than he, one a girl of 7, and three others under 6 years of age. “A boat is a poor place for little children,” said the father, “for all they can do is to go in and out of the cabin.” The four older children were accustomed to helping with the boat work, but the father depended especially on the 11-year-old boy. He could do any sort of work and often drove for long hours, and even well into the night. His school attendance in 1920–21 was only 93 days out of a possible 178. The father himself commented on this poor record and said that while he regretted it he was obliged to “boat” his children as he could not afford with his large family to hire extra help.

One 17-year-old girl boasted that she had been working on canal boats for 12 seasons. The mother of this girl had had 17 children, 8 of whom were living. Of the 9 children who had died, 8 had died in infancy. The 2 oldest living children had married and left home. The remaining 6 children, including the 17-year-old girl, 2 boys who were 15 and 12 years of age, respectively, and 3 girls, aged 11, 6, and 2 traveled with their parents on the canal. All except the youngest were regular boat hands, having begun to work when 6 years of age. The mother stated that for many years it had not been necessary for them to employ a crew as they had plenty of their “own hands.” During the season selected for study their boat had traveled 19 hours a day 7 days a week. While the 6-year-old girl was allowed to go to bed at 8 and presumably had lighter duties than the others, the 4 older children worked on shifts all day long, snatching a nap now and then. They went to bed at 10 p. m. and had to be up and ready to start again at 3 a. m. The oldest girl had stopped school on completing the fourth grade. The 4 other children who had been in school during 1920–21 had records which showed attendance varying from 29 percent to 73 percent of the term. The 15-year-old boy, with an attendance record of 29.6 percent, had just completed the fourth grade and was not planning to return to school in the fall.

Ilma_0225_How To Repair Your Air Compressor

Let me tell you regarding Craftsman Model 919.165230 compressor with 25-Gallon tank which had helped me a lot for the ample time of 12 years. This extremely useful machinery is beneficial to paint motorcycle parts, it can be utilized as a cut off tool for automotive body work, beneficial for electrodes of spark plug and it provides exceptional benefits for multiple air tools as well. Eventually, my previously used compressor works continuously and the pressure of the tan was only 60psi. Yes, it was the time to repair an air compressor.

Ensure the Safe Repair

Power and purge must be removed first before starting with the air compressor repair. Unplugging air compressor from the wall outlet will remove it more conveniently. Pulling the ring on the safety valve will purge the tank as well. The warning for the users who are repairing the air compressor is that if tank is partially full than the sound of the port may come out of the ports of safety valve and it can be an extremely disastrous situation.

Establish an Area for Repair

Set up an area for repairing the air compressor is crucial for the perfect repair. Couple of folding tables would make the repair more convenient. Plastic container and all the tools should be arranged properly to complete this task in a most appropriate way. WD0 Spray lubricant, paper towel and a spray bottle with water should be there and the reason to have it is to avoid all possible air leakages.

Compressor Shrouds Removal

Two pieces plastic shroud usually contain motor and compressor assembly. With the help of Torx screws, smaller front shroud is connected to the compressor. Along with the motor, rear shroud is connected with one Torx screw. The front and rear shrouds are usually connected with built-in clips. There are numerous usages of shroud. It enables you to touch air compressor head which can get hot during the application. It also provides you a fabulous protection against cutting from the blades and cooling fan. It also prevents you and provided enormous protection against electrical parts such as blades of built-in cooling fan.

Compressor Head Removal

Compressor head should be removed from the red circle in the compressor. It should be held in the place of four bolts. On the right side, there is a black plastic piece called the muffler. From the muffler air will going to be enter in air compressor. I believe that the “muffles” the voice of natural air will be surely rushed into the air intake.

Valve Plate Assembly Removal

Valve assembly will be exposed as soon as compressor heads are removed. In this way, air will enter into a compressor and escaping through the muffler intake will also be prevented.

Inspection of Valve Plate Assembly

Dissembling the valve plate assembly is the first step. In the place of small bolts, metal reeds are held to complete this task easily. Reads for warping and cracking should also be checked. If you want that your air compressor will reach maximum pressure, the good seal against the valve plate should be provided.

Removing the Fan

In a place with one bolt fan is usually connected to the end of the motor shaft and its placement is with one bolt. In order to lose the bolt, fan should be removed on an urgent basis

Rod and Cylinder Sleeve Removal Connection

Connecting rod should be removed from the bearing with one bolt once the fan is eliminated. In the place of the valve guide and head valve guide, the cylinder sleeve is usually held. When the head and valve guide is removed, the cylinder sleeve will be removed as well by pulling it straight up and out. Connector rod must be pulled off as soon as cylinder sleeve is removed. Counterbalance weight under the connecting rod. Orientation of the counter balance weight should be observed carefully which is related to the connecting rod. Excessive vibration might be occurring as a result of this activity. On the compressor which I own connecting rod is at the bottom and counter balance weight is pointing up.

Exactly why Golfers require Rangefinders

The best golf rangefinder is very much significant for the golfers. The current Bushnell Golfing Rangefinder commercial using the slow movement shot associated with Sergio Garcia striking a golf tee shot more than water while a Bushnell Rangefinder reticule is actually targeting the actual flag, fine sand trap, and the actual wooden drinking water embankment facing the hole is excellent. It’s an excellent commercial as it’s time Bushnell began getting much talked about golfers to advertise golf equipment that really help golf players lower their own scores. To do well in the competition the players must need best golf rangefinder.

Bushnell-Pro-1600 -Best-Golf-Rangefinder

While Titlist, Taylor made, and also the other club manufacturers concentrate on promoting the most recent drivers, putters, as well as gimmicky night clubs; rarely does a brand new club or even new putter really help a typical golfer lower his / her score just like a rangefinder may. This post lists 3 great explanations why the typical golfer (handy-cap associated with 8 or more) must always have a great rangefinder within the bag.

Best golf rangefinders tend to be relatively affordable. I state relatively affordable because $200 in order to $400 might seem like lots of money to invest in another golfing gadget. Think about this: most golf players change motorists every 3 years, and purchase new models of golf irons every 7 years. For 10 years, you obtain the advantage of accurate range measurements in order to flags along with other objects upon golf courses which will assist play golfing holes much more intelligently. New motorists can operate you between $200 in order to $500, while a brand new set associated with irons cost between $400 in order to $1500. If you choose the mathematics, these costs accumulate and help to make rangefinders a cheap investment during the period of a 10 year period.

Best golf Rangefinders may absolutely decrease your score. Average golfers do not have caddies. USGA guidelines also do not let Rangefinders along with other electronic dimension devices to become utilized throughout official event play. Sergio’s caddy, nevertheless, is permitted to walk the actual course every morning and speed off distances in the tees in order to anywhere he really wants to and after that write all of them down. Caddies use rangefinders in order to record these types of distances in order to save time while they’re preparing to have an event.


Best golf rangefinder

US golfer Tiger Woods

Finally, best golf rangefinder is needed for better work. These people accurately variety flags, trees and shrubs, and additional targets from as much as 1, 000 back yards away; and also to within +/- 1 yard of the targeted items. They will also be simple to use and tend to be small enough to become kept inside your pocket. I suggest trying the actual Bushnell Golfing Medalist or even the Bushnell Visit V2. Leupold’s Gx-1 as well as Gx-2 models also have received excellent reviews through golfers. For any step upward in cost and overall performance, the Bushnell 1500 Pin seeker with down and up slope measurement is a good instrument. And when you as well as your friends may live by the USGA guideline infraction, I suggest it; especially with regard to courses becoming played for the very first time.
