Excerpt: ...telegraph, and express or transportation oflices, in addition to manufacturing, mechanical, or mercantile establishments, laundries, hotels, and restaurants to which the restriction of a former law applied. The proviso of the old law allowing females employed in retail stores to work twelve hours per day during the week preceding Christmas is stricken out.
