Ware was highly respected in the community where he was a member of the Second Baptist Church, Great Western Lodge, and the Shawnee County Colored Horse Fair Association. He died in 1888 and the flag at the capitol was flown at half-mast and legislators observed a moment of silence.

Part I: Child Labor in Sixth Annual Report of the Bureau of Labor and Industrial Statistics

Kansas. Dept. of Labor and Industry

Part I of this government report addresses the problem of child labor in Kansas, which appeared to be increasing. Most of the report focuses on existing child labor laws in Kansas, statistics about child employment (broken down by county, child?s age, ethnic background, etc?), and the industries that employed children. The report also addresses school attendance and truancy laws (which would effectively curb the unlawful employment of children) and includes the results of interviews with school superintendents and questionnaires filed out by those known to employ children in their businesses. School superintendents were overwhelmingly in favor of compulsory education, and most employers believed that it was important for children to understand the value of hard work (although some did speak about the benefits of school).
