THE FACTORIES ACT.

To the Editor. Sir, —Would you kindly inform one of your subscribers and the general public if the same law exists in the town of Ashburton as was recently applied in the case of the Wellington and Oamaru drapers, who were not only heavily fined but severely censured for keeping their female work people after the hours prohibited by law. Are the officers appointed for that purpose in Ashburton less vigilant than those of the two towns before mentioned, or do they simply wink at what must be known to them, viz, that the majority of the stores in Ashburton keep their work people as late as six o’clock on Saturdays, instead of allowing them to go at two o’clock ? By inserting the above, and giving the information asked for you will oblige One of Your Subscribers.
