to Furnish a Bond
for Tree Protection
Park Commissioner Hummel has forced
Water Commissioner faowell to execute,
a 1.X) bond In the name of the Wator
board before the contractors laying the
forty-elght-lnch water main to Florence
would be permitted to enter MUter park.
Mr. Howell objected strenuously, but
finally agreed, denying the while the
right or authority of one department of
"city government compelling another de
partment to give bond for the perform
ance of work."
According to the agreement, cinched by
the bond, the Water board's contractors
must not occupy a strip of land more
than thirty feet wide while laying the
main Oirough the park, neither will the
workmen be permitted to tie ropes lo
or cut down trees.
When tho bond comes up for approval

maintain Its right to pursue Its way un

LAMBERT DOES NOT FAVOR
NEW COMPENSATION BILL
Assistant City Attorney Ijunbcrt la
everlastingly fernlnst a workmen's com
pensation bill In this state, saying he
believes such a law Is In reality a cor
poration measure and deprives high
salaried workmen of Just recompense In
case of Injury, giving their less accom
plished fellow-workmen equal rights with
them to damages.
In Oregon, says Mr. lumber, laboring
men nro slowly realizing that the law Is
working hardship! on them, and may
ultimately ask Its repeal.
Instead of workmen's compensation
before the city commission Tuesday Mr.J-Mr. Iamber suggest amendments to
Howell w)ll request tho passage of a existing laws, which in his opinion would
bring about tho desired results without
Imposing undue hardships on laboring
Ono of tho changes Is the abandonment
of the "assumption of risk" theory, which
holds employes not entitled to damages
for Injuries received In flio performance
of work accompanied by dangers of
which they wpre aware.
Mr. Lambert would also dispose of the
"fellow-servant" theory, by which work
men In the employ of a. corporation arc
held responsible for Injuries to fellow
employes through their own negligence
