The Liability BUI.
fhe Nebraska workman's compensa
tion and employers' liability bill, which
is to be presented to tho next legisla
ture, is based upon the English law,
which provides for straight compensa
tion in case of in iury on a percentage
of earnings of tho injured workman.
The Washington plan i3 also being
considered, which contemplates state
insurance. Under this plan the state be
comes an insurance company and the
employer and employeo pay their pre
miums to the stato to make up the fund
from which claims are paid.
Under the proposed law, the employer
is directly liableto the injured workman
for a percentage of his earnings, with
out recourse. The Nebraska bill pro
vides for G5 per cent of the earnings, P.
Tecumsoh Sherman and other experts
declare this to be too high and lecom
mend 50 per cent, which is the rate in
the lSnglish law.
The argument offered against the in
surance plan is that all manufacturers
und employers of labor must pay their
proportion of money into tho fund, and
help pay tho claims of other manufac
turers even though they may have no
accidents in their own places.
'The bill is not yet in its finnl draft.
