Territorial Senate, sitting as a com | ; - the whole to consider S. B ' No. it- die workmen's compcnsntioi I act?acted only tentatively, their sev ? oral expressions leaves no doubt tha I -he bill will pass that body, with : | few minor amendments, wheu it is ta ' ken up ngain tonight or tomorrow. "1 believe this bill is going to pass.' remurked Senator Sutherland near tht rlost" of the session last night, "ant j I would like to see it put through ai , speedily as possible, so the Houst will have four or live days in whlcl to consider it. I am willing to foregt the trip through the Alaska-Juneai ! mines Sunday In order to act on it. | lon't think Mr. Bradley would be of "So," replied Senator Gaustad, "1 believe he would rather have this bill passed." Senator Millard was absent from the meeting, and with Senator Gaustad ? presiding, the consideration of the bill proceeded. "This bill is an experiment." said Senator Sutherland, "and the most im 1 portant measure, I -think, since the Or ganic Act was secured." Sutherland suggested that if the bill were passed that it be made to expire .at the end of two years experiment. A debate on this point ended in a re iectloD by the majority. The principle debate of the evening was on the motion of Senator Suther land that the amounts in the sched; ille bo increased 50 per cent., though the section relating to forfeiture in case an action to collect damages were brought outside the division in which the accident occurred was con stdered and amendments proposed. Sutherland justified his suggestion for a higher schedule on the proposi tion that life is worth more in Alaska lhau on the Outside, based on his earn ing capacity, which he stated was '-??ice as great iti the Interior. "The Senate is in the position of a jury passing upon the value of life and limb." he said. Sulzer: "I do not take that view. 1 don't believe that life or limbs can be estimated in dollars. The idea is to compensate dependants or the injured workman himself, and not to remun erate. and the only basis is the aver age of the compensation laws of the States. Some people look upon this bill as a blind for the companies, but it will apply to small operators, and the small operators aggregate more than the larger ones." Tanner: "My wife might not think my life worth anything, either here or below, while I might think it worth a lot. That is not the basis. It Is com pensation, and not life value, that we are after and we should not jump at conclusions.' McGann: "As I take it. we cannot fix compensation until we first estab lish a value or a loss. The perspec tive value of a man's life should be taken into account. The standard of manhood is higher here than on the outside, because he has greater possi bilities. We cannot compensate un less we determine upon a loss.' ' Gaustad: "We are more in the po sition of actuaries than that of a jury. We should strike an average. If the schedule is placed too high the com panies might reject the terms of it and defeat the purpose of the bill. For my part I think the schedule in the act correct and would not vote to raise it one per cent." Hubbard: "It has been my obser vation that of those bringing damage suits against employers, not over 50 per cent, ever get anything, and those who do get pnly 50 per cent, of what they sue for. Half of this usually goes to the attorneys, leaving a claimant 25 per cent. However. I believe the schedule would stand raising, and would suggest it bo raised 25 poi 4 Aidrlch: "My embarrassment ir the consideration of this bill arise! a from my lack of complete knowlodgt ' or understanding of it, though I car . sec that it could bo easily amended or i the percentage plan. I do not think that $2,500 Is any price to pay for a t hu-bund and father." i Section 2 of the bill relating to set . tlement without regard to the schcd ulo was questioned by Senator Hub ? bard, and the word "wholly" in the ; sections relating to dependants wns 1 generally recommended to be stride j en. ? The clause relating to 90 days notice i by relative of deceased workmen came > up for discussion, and J. A. Hellonthal, i who was present, was called upon to [ construe it. In the course of his re . marks Mr. Hellenthal suggested that employers might keep a register of I the workmen's relatives, and thus I avoid any false claims in the event of death. Contrary to expectations the consid eration of the bill proceeded as gen I tly as the flow of a summer stream. The act will probably be taken up at tonights session for final action or to . morrow-at the fartherest. * ?> * ?> * ?> + ?}<-:??? i ? * ? ?
