Columbus, O., Jan. 20. Ono of tho
fleieest lights of the legislative session
will contor about tho employers' li

organized woikors of tho stato havo
fought that battle, each tlmo tho em

This year tho bill has boon drawn
by Attornoy 1). F. Anderson, of
Youngstown, who, for twenty years
has been lighting to uphold labor leg
islation to tho courts.
Misrepresentation of tho bill Is tho
principal weapon used against tho bill,
according to Norrls. Ho says tho em
ployers' awoclatlon of Clovolund has
sent out circular letters to all em
ployers of that city, asking subscrip
tions to a fund to light labor legisla
tion and especially tho employers' li
Tho Idea Is being given out that the
bill provldos that tho employers must
componsato tho omploye for any acci
dent, no matter how Incurrod, while
ot work. Norrls says this Is absolute
ly wrong". Senator 'Puttie, professor of
luw at Ohio State university, says that
ho was at first opposed to tho bill bo
causo of this view, out on reading
tho bill llnda tho Idea uufoundod and
favors tho legislation.
"Tho bill Is generally misunderstood
both by members of tho legislature
nrd by employer," said Norrls.
"What It seoks to effect Is to do away

"It does not mean that tho em

"But tho courts havo decided that
when a man goes to work with an
opportunity of knowing that tlw ma
ohlugry Is not in proper condition ho
assumes tho risk and tho omployer Is
not responsible. Tho bill makes tho
employer responsible In that case. It
