A law of more than ordinary im
portance, and one that will effect a
very large number of persons In tho
Territory, Is the Workmen's Compen
sation Law (Act 221) passed by tfio
last legislature. It goes into effect
July 1st next. It requires that every
person employing one or nioro per
sons must bo prepared to furnish cc;n

death or injury of such workman or
Maul Board Meets.
The recently appointed members of
tho Maul Industrial Accident Board,
which will have chargo of the enforce
ment of the new law on Maui, held a
preliminary meeting on Wednesday
and formed a temporary organization.
Judge McKay was chosen chairman
and Will. J. Cooper, secretary. The
other members are: W. L. Decoto,
W. II. Field, and George "Weight.
Aside from a general study and dis
cussion of tho new act, the board
adopted a resolution approving the
suggestion of Acting Governor Thciycr
that tho attorney general be requested
to prepare tho various forms of pro
cedure for tho approval of the sev
eral boards. It is tho desire of all
tho boards to work along the same
lines, and for this reason it is desir
able that like forms be followed.
Heretofore the Territorial laws hdd
tho employer liable to the employe
under the "negligence system" of
liability, and also gave him certain de
lenses that enabled him to deny liabil
ity when it couid bo shown that the in
jury to the employe was not due to
any negligence on tho part of the em
ployer. Tho new Compensation Law created
what is generally known as "Work
men's Compensation Insurance" which
means that the employer shall pay
"compensation" 1'or every accident,
excepting only when caused by tho
employe's wilful intention or his In
toxication. Tho law will be adminis
tered by an Industrial -Accident Board
for each County, composed of five
members, appointed by tho Governor.
Must Carry Insurance.
Every employer of labor must carry
Insurance of somo kind or be prepared
to furnish a guarantee to t'ic board
that he is financially ablo to pay nny
claims for accidents that may ocur
to his employees. , The various Insur
ance companies are preparing to han
dlo this business, and it 13 likely that
most of it will bo thus handled, ex
cept that some of the largei planta
tions may elect to carry their own in
Any employer failing lo secure com
pensation renders himself liubie to
heavy daily penalties and, after thirty
days, ho may be enjoined from carry

No Contracts Valid. .
No contract, rule, regulation or de
vice whatsoever shall relieve the em
ployer in whole or in part from any
liability created by this Act.
For, non-fatal accident the liability
Is to the Injured employe; for fatal
accidents to tho deceased employe's
dependent or dependents. Any porron,
a member of tho family of tho de
ceased employo who is dependent tip
on such employe for support, Is con
sidered by the Act to bo a dependent.

Act, Includes step-ebildrcn, lopted

What Employer is Liable For.
Tho employer Is liable for an ' acrl

Iho latter is performing sen Ices, aris

employment. This includes lnju.ics
which may be received In times of
social stress, such as strikes, etc.
The chief factors to bo considered
under this heading aro:

the morning of July 3 to take part in
Maul's big Fourth ot July celebration.
Local members of the ordo. are work

that It will materialize. The same
boat that brings the Foresters will
probably bring the Fourth Cavalry
band, which is coming to spend a few
days on Maul, and to furnish music

sibility that a sufficiently lnrso crowd
can be worked up to secure a special
steamer lor the trip.

tho measure of the Robinson bunch
from Pala, In as exciting a gamo as
ever was played on a local diamond,
by a score of 7 to 4.
"Blondle" Williams, the Puunene
slabster, pitched steady ball, and al
though touched for eight lilts, struck
out eight men and allowed but two
passes. Eight bases were stolen on
Hussey by Pala men, whereas no Puu
nene man was allowed to steal on Fo
It was an off day for brother Alvln
Robinson, who nllowed five free passes
to first sack and eleven hits. His
pitching would come back In spasms,
however, and ho is credited with six
teen strikeouts, undoubtedly so far
the season's record. After allowing
men on bases in s6veral instances he
would pull out of the hole by the
strike out route.
It was nip and tuck to tho end of
the seventh, each side having scored
two runs. In the first half ot tho
eighth, Baldwin of the Puunenes, came
to bat with bases full. He singled to
right and on Carreira's error in at
tempting to scoop the ball, three men
scored, leaving Baldwin at third base,
scoring a little later on Kahananul's
hit to right. The Puunenes added tin
other score in tho ninth, giving them
a total of seven runs. In their last
chance to bat tho Pala bunch made an
effort to tie which, however, only net
ted tnem two runs.
The showing made by tto Puunenes
recently proves they have shaken off
their hoodoo. Manager Paschoal says
that although he has not much show
to win out in tho first series, ho will
have to be counted upon the second.
The fans will have to figure with the
cane grinders hereafter, for they vre
continuously pra-tlsing and workln?
Tomorrow's game will bo between
the men from Pala and George Com
mlngs' bunch of colts. The Hawalis,
after winning two straight, have
dropped two in succession, but are
confident they will be able to bent the
Robinson aggregation, which has lost
one and won ono from them. The
youngsters have recovered from their
defeats and have been on the groundr.
every evening practising on several
new stunts which "Pop" Cummings
has been putting them up to.
The Paias aro still in tho lead and
should they win tomorrow's game, the
championship of the first series will
be theirs. Should tho Hawalis win
the next game and lose to tho Puu
nenes tho Sunday following, all teams
will bo tied for first place, each hav
