EXHIBITION OF "SWEATING." I In little .stalls in the Queen's Hall women and one or two worn-looking men were, working at thoetradeB that have fallen into the "sweaters'" hands, when Princess Henry of Battenberg, accompanied by Princess Ena, opened the Sweated Industries Exhibition, which 11 has been got together by the "Daily News. Ranged round the hall were specimens of clothing and other articles, products of the "sweating system" in this country. Working at the making of gay artificial flowers, smart coats, or smart underwear and baby linen, with well-dressed ladies and gentleman watching them curiously, the workers presented a pathetic picture. The Princess purchased as a memento of the exhibition a- beautiful baby's pelisse which the worker made for 10d., but which would be sold for 14s. 6d. At one stall a woman was engaged in folding printed sheets, mostly of Bibles and Prayer- books, for which she ordinarily receives 9s. to 10s. weekly for working twelve hours a, day. The sheets have to be cut, folded, and put into the right order.
