Files Report On
Work Of Year
(Continued from Page One.)
inp considerable difficulty in remov
ing the impression which seems to
have become general that the law is
n dead letter, particularly nmong the
Oriental employers. As a result of
this almost two-thirds of the employ
ers in our files are still without in
surance. Insurance Companies Indifferent
A very potent reason for this con
dition of affairs is the fact that little
energy is now shown by the insurance
companies doing business in the Ter
ritory in gelting this class of insur
ance. In fact there are but three
companies now writing workmen's
compensation in this county against
eight a year ago. And where at least
two formerly had agents actively en
gaged in working up this business,
there are now none, so far as we are
advised, who make special efforts
along this line. Representatives of
of companies still writing this class
of insurance assert that the business
has not proved a paying one for the
Policies Not Accepted
The Board has been unable to ap
prove recent policies submitted by
the insurance companies owing to a
rider clause attached limiting the
liability of the insurer to the sum of
$20,000 on account of any one acci
dent. This limitation has appeared
to the Board to be in direct contra
vention of Pec. 49 of the Statute
which requires that "Every policy
of insurance and every guarantee
contract covering the liability of the
employer for compensation, whether
issued by a stock company, or by a
mutual association authorized to
transact workmen's compensation or
guarantee insurance in this Territory
shall cover the entire liability of the
employer to his employees covered
by the policy or contract". The
County Attorney h;s also declined to
advise the acceptance of policies
carrying this clause. It now seems
quite probable that, this matter will
remain unsettled until after June
1918 when, by Act 227, S. L. 1917,
amending Act 221, a uniform policy
approved by the commissioner of in
surance of the Territory must be
While the validity of the law was
in question, in at least two instances
insurance carriors suspended pay
ment of compensation in spite of
their contracts with the employers.
Insurance Fund Advocated
Because of the increasing indiffer
ence of insurance companies which
makes it difficult for employers to
secure compensation for their em
ployees as required by law, and be
cause of their apparent reluctance to
adopt a policy complying with the
law in all particulars, the Board is
confirmed in its opinion that the Leg
islature should establish a Territorial
insurance fund to supply employers
with security for compensation to
their employees, along lines as are
in force in a number of states. This
was one of the recommendations of
this Board made in its report dated
February 1, 1917.

Mr. II. A. Baldwin stated that he
desired to bring before the trustees
for their consideration the advisabili
ty of taking some favorable action in
the way of supporting legislation that
will make the Territory "dry;" more

to be dry. Mr. Baldwin stated that
he did not like the idea of having
Maul made a dumping ground for
liquor that could not be sold on Oahu.
He had no written resolution to pres
ent, but thought that perhaps action
should be taken by the Chamber of
Commerce by way of resolution, and
this resolution forwarded to Delegate
Kuhio, urging him to press for dry
legislation. In other words, Mr. Bald
