What tlie Bills Provide
The proposed legislation includes six
bills and tne Constitutional amendment
passed at the last session of the Legis
lature. The amendment, which gives
the Legislature the right to enact a com
pulsory compensation law and to limit
the amounts to be paid is presented to
the General Assembly at this time so
that if it again passes both Houses it
may be submitted to the voters of the
State next November.
The compensation act as drawn pro
vides an elective system or a voluntary
contract, fixes a schedule of compensa
tion and changes materially the com
mon law defenses.
The first of the bills provides for
workmen's compensation; the second
creates the State bureau to enforce the
proposed act; the third establishes a
State insurance fund; the fourth regu
lates the policies of insurance against
liability arising under the workmen's
compensation act; the fifth authorizes
the creatiou of mutual liability insur
ance associations, and the sixth ex
empts farm labor and domestic servants
from the compensation act. The drafts
of the bills are accompanied by explana
tions prepared by the Attorney General
in which he gives reasons for the va
rious provisions and also notes objec
tions which have been made against
certain parts of the measures.
The Employe's Rights
The Workmen's Compensation bill en
larges the right of an employe to re
cover in an action at law against his
employer. In case of injury or death of
an employe it shall not be a defense of
the employer in any action brought
against him that the injury was caused
by the negligence of a fellow-employe,
or that the employe had assumed the
risks of the injury, or that the injury
was caused in any degree by the negli
gence of such employe, unless it be
established that the injury was caused
by such employe's intoxication or by
his reckless indifference to danger. The
bill provides that the burden of prov
ing such intoxication or reckless indif
ference shall be upon the defendant,
and the (Question shall be one of fact to
be determined bv a itirv.
The employer shall be liable for the
negligence of all employes while act
ing within the scope of their employ
ment. including engineers, chauffeurs,
miners, mine foremen, lire bosses, mine
superintendents, plumbers, officers of
vessels and all other employee licensed
by the State or other governmental au
thority, jf tihe employer be allowed bv
the law the right of free selection of
such employes from the folass of per
sons thus licensed.
It is expressly state.! that the act
calls for elective compensation. Con

The schedule of compensation is as
For the first 500 weeks after the
fourteenth (lav of total disability 50
per cent, of the waives received at the
time of injury, but the compensation
shall not be more than $lO per week
nor less than $5 per week; provided, if

then he shall receive the full amount
of such wages per week. Should par
tial disability be followed by total dis

be reduced by the number of weeks
during which compensation was paid
for such partial disability. For dis
