DEFENSES TO PERSONAL INJURY SUITS AND THE
COMPENSATION ACTS
THE movement for the abolishment of the "contributory neg
ligence," "fellow servant" and "assumption of risk" defenses
to suits for damages for personal injuries by employee
against employer, that is manifested in Alaska by Senator Ro
den's bill, has resulted in the inauguration of workingmen's com
pensation acts in many States. It is argued with reason that
there is a good deal of fiction in these defenses and that they
often result in injustice to the working men. On the other hand,
if they were abolished and the extent of damages to be secured
in this character of cases were left to juries it would result in
an uncertainty that adds to the hazzard of capital invested in the
industries. Recognition of the justice of the demand for the re
moval of these defenses, and a desire to be fair to employers, have
caused legislatures to turn to the industrial insurance or working
men's compensation laws as a remedy. They do away with un
certainty in a large measure, on both sides. A working man that
* *- Al_ _ 1
is injured in the States where these laws are in rorce, in me
course of his employment, is certain to get compensation without
the assistance of a jury and without the delay and costs of at
torneys' fees and court fees that always attend a suit in court,
and, on the other hand, the employer can figure in advance on
what his tax for the maintenance of the insurance fund will be,
and add it to his regular over-head expenses. That the employ
er will not be caused hardship by this proceeding is exempli
fied by the fact that most employers in States where there are
no workingmen's compensation laws carry accident insurance to
protect them from losses of this kind. They are not required
to carry this insurance where the State has stepped in and pro
vided for industrial insurance.
The workingmen's compensation acts permit the insurance
premiums paid by employers to protect themselves from direct
losses in damage suits to go directly and quickly to injured work
ingmen rather than to be eaten up in profits of casualty insur
ance companies and cost of suits at law.
Whether nor not Alaska industries have developed to an
extent that would warrant the adoption of the workingmen's
compensation act in this territory or not is a matter for grave
consideration by the Legislature, but it should be considered
with the purpose in view of being exactly just to both employer
and employee.
Some Washington Democrats, no doubt, suffered from chills
when they read National Committeeman John Pattison's state
ment that some Republicans, at least, were likely to be in office
in the Evergreen State for two years.
PEACE AT OLYMPIA
THE differences between Gov. Lister and the Republican ma
jority in the Washington Legislature were compromised in
the last days of the session that terminated last week. The
legislature accepted the administration bill consolidating many
of the departments of the State, reducing the cost of and sim
plifying the operating machinery of the government, and receded
from its position of a li/o-mill tax levy for the seven State high
ways, and agreed to a levy of 1*4 mills for the first year and
one mill thereafter for that purpose. The permanent highway
tax levy was reduced from 2!/> mills to IV2 mills. This and other
items of reduction premitted the Governor to keep his promises
to the people that the expenses to the tax payers will be re
duced during his administration, so he accepted the compro
mise. and everybody went home from Olympia happy and con
tented.
There will be sympathy everywhere for Senator Tillman be
cause his fellow Senators believed it to be necessary to deprive
him of the chairmanship of the appropriations committee, a po
sition upon which he had set his heart. He was the senior Dem
ocratic member of that committee as well as the senior Demo
cratic member of the naval affairs committee. He has been a
Senator for nearly a quarter of a century and has given splendid
service to his country. Naturally, he expected to get the leader
ship of the important committee that has claimed so much of
his talents?particularly so in a Senate that is dominated by
progressive Democrats* He is a progressive member of his par

ty. wnne senator .Martin is raiea as a conservative, nowever,
the appropriations committee is one of the hard worked commit
tees of the Senate, and the great South Carolinian is old and
feeble. His hard working days are over. Much of the time he
is unable to appear in the Senate or at committee meetings, so,
naturally, he had to give way to a younger man.
Eastern newspaper writers are giving much space to spec
ulation upon the quantity and quality of the influence Bryan will
have in the new administration. Most of them, of course, just
now construe "influence in the administration" with reference
to the bearing it will have upon the dispensation of patronage.
The gyrations of every little straw that flits within the vision
of observers is being seriously discussed. Yesterday there were
long articles being written on the refusal of former Secretary
Richard Olnev to accept the British mission; today it is Bryan's
interference in the Illinois situation, presumably at the instance
of the President, and tomorrow no one knows what it will be. In
the meantime President Wilson and Secretary Bryan are going
about their ways administering their official duties as big men
can, seemingly unconcerned about all the guessing that is go
ing on.
