A test of the workmen's compensa
tion act which became effective in
i Illinois last May is being made in the
; circuit court of Kane county by at
I tcrneys representing Ernes; I. Erick-:
j son, administrator of the estate of
j John O. Erickson, divinity student
! who was killed at the American Well j
works on July 16. 1912. and by the ;
insurance company with whom the '
well works has an arrangement to in- ,
sure it against losses. '
j Erickson was star pitcher on the
I Ausustana college 1912 baseball team j

'particulars in the case:

deceased and Attorney Edward Uyou
i by the casualty company and Judge

port within ten days and either side
can appeal from the finding of 'his
board to the judge.
Tiider the law, the amount of dam-

of a man killed, is determined by
