HIGH-CLASS DRESSMAKING. A high-class dressmaker in Sheffield has been convicted and fined X8 for overworking her assistants. She had been warned by a Factory Inspector of the provisions of the Factory Act bearing on this suoject. Nevertheless it was ad- mitted that two girls in her employment began work at 8-30 on Tuesday morning, worked through the whole day, the wnole of the following night, and until 6-30 on the Wednesday evening. This was tkirty-four hours of work, and during that time only one hour and a half was allowed them to rest. The excuse was pleaded that there was great pressure, owing to a heavy mourning order; but it Nas sub- mitted by the Factory Inspector tbat if the mourning order could not ba executed without breaking the law it should not be aocepted, e.pechlly at the risk of the health of the workers. In this the Stipendiary Magistrate appears, from his decision, to have agreed.
