HALE HILL SENDS IN RESIGNATION Corporation Clerk Resigned Office Three Weeks Ago and Leaves July 1 Hale Hill, chief of the Bureau of Corporations of the Auditor General's department for the last two years, will retire from the office on July 1, having tendered his resignation to Auditor General A. W. Powell three weeks ago. Mr. Hill's retirement was voluntary, although it has been com mon knowledge that he had not been in sympathy with the political policy of his chief and of some of his asso ciates in the department. Mr. Hill was a supporter of Charles A. Snyder for Auditor General and was not enthusi astic about the Brumbaugh campaign. There are also reports that he dis agreed with other officials in the de partment over taxation matters. Mr. Hill lives at Tarentum and is an attorney at the Allegheny county bar. He was associated with the Auditor General at one time. He succeeded James V. Murray as corporation chief, a position paying $5,090, and has had charge of important corporation tax settlements. When the campaign started he did not go the same way that the Auditor General went and there are reports that he resented pa pers being circulated to make him a candidate for nation? 1 delegate or al ternate without his knowledge. How ever, he gave to Powell's fund and will likely get his cheek back, as it was not in the list as tiled. Mr. Powell said last night that Mr. Hill's retirement was of his own volition and that the other changes made were not the result of polities. Chief Clerk William B. Kay. of McKecsport, was named to succeed Hill, and Osoftr H. Graff, Meadville, chief clerk of the Bureau of Accounts, was promoted as chief clerk of the department, succeeding Kay. Graff is succeeded by Patrick A. Kennedy, of Scranton. a clerk in the Bureau of Corporations. F. H. Lehman, Lebanon, was pro moted to be assistant special assistant corporation clerk at $3,000 a year, an increase of S6OO, avid Fred A. Heim, Williamsport: William R. Kimball, Dunbar, and S. R.

HARRISBURG &&&L TELEGRAPH COMPENSATION AND THE MINERS Chief Roderick Makes Some Interesting Comments Upon the Subject in Report The operation of the State work men's compensation law from the standpoint of the people who cut the coal from the earth is set by James E. Roderick, State Chief of Mines, in a recently issued report. The chief has been making a study of the subject and presents his views in the following language: "Compensation for industrial acci dents is not by any means a new idea. The desire to assist those who are in jured or those who may be left de pendent has mai)f itself felt in numer ous attempts at compensation in years gone by. In fact, the controlling prin ciple of the trade guilds that existed during the middle centuries was the principle that underlies the compen sation movement of to-day. While the idea is old, the first governmental ad ministration of any of the so-called helpful measures was inaugurated in Germany about sixty years ago. In that country they now have an em ployers' liability law and also com pulsory sick and accident benefits. It was not, however, until the twentieth century that compensation legislation reached a position of importance in the world at large. "Compensation legislation may very appropriately -fee classed among the highest of governmental attainments. It is the evidence of a fine humani tarian spirit, a spirU, fortunately, that is daily awakening io greater activity and urging to greater accomplishment; and while the present laws on this subject in this country are tentative in force and necessarily somewhat crude and defective, they nevertheless mark an important step in the direction of ultimate protection to the working classes. The Commonwealth of Penn sylvania by the enactment of the com pensation law of 1915 has taken its place among the most advanced and progressive States of the Union in this beneficent form of legislation, and to Governor Brumbaugh much credit is due for his consistent and staunch advocacy of the measure. "In this connection it is -worthy of note that no State that has adopted compensation has ever relinquished it to go back to the unfair and uncertain common law basis of liability. "The Department of Mines views with pleasure the progress in compen satlon legislation, as it is in keeping MAKING CHILDREN EAT Nothing is ever gained by forcing a child to eat when it refuses food. Make eure that nothing is being eaten between meals to destroy the natural appetite and if your growingchild does nothave a healthful craving for pood, honest food at mealtimes there is something the matter. Threats of punishment it the child does not eat will not correct the difficulty. A fitful appetite in a growing child, especially it the patient is pale, languid, nervous, irritable, and without ambi tion, usually means that the blood is thin. A non-alcoholic tonic such as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is demanded. During her 'teens a girl lays the foun dation for her future health. Lack of blood at this time may rob her of robust, healthy womanhood. It is of the greatest importance to administer to girls who grow pale and weak a safe tonic and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills meet every requirement of the most careful mother. They make the blood rich and red and it carries renewed health and strength to every part of the body. Your own druggist sells Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills.

The recent suggestions by the department have been along the line of placing a tax on the coal production. A tax of 2 % cents a ton on the annual output, approximating 260,000,000 tons, would yield $6,250,000 revenue, or $120,000 a week, a sum undoubtedly adequate for the purpose. "Under the act of 1915 the entire mining community will enjoy a pro tection never known before, and the assistance will come to the miners and their families without the necessity of appeal to the employer or resort to the courts. It can never, of course, be pleasing to contemplate injury from accident, but there will be, neverthe less, a sense of comfort to both the miner and to his family in the thought that in case of a calamity, perhaps unavoidable or inevitable, the burden will be somewhat lightened by a cer tain and definite recompense. In times of distress such as follow all severe accidents the assurance of even a com paratively smkll fund for sustenance will be most grateful. "Pennsylvania has been fortunate in having a large and efficient State in spection force, whose duty it has been to insist upon the enforcement of the provisions of the laws that relate to safety conditions in the mines. It has also been fortunate in the large num ber of operators who have shown a re markable degree of consideration for their employes, not only by installing in the mines practically every modern safety device and adopting the most comprehensive rules of safety, but by their humanitarian efforts in the way of aiding in the establishment of relief funds for those who are injured or those who may be left dependent.

The certainty that every seri ous accident Will rec,uire the outlay of a definite sum of money will be a strong incentive to go to extremes in the way of protective measures. Just what further precautions they can take is a matter of conjecture, as most of them have already more than com piled with the requirements of the law in this respect. There will, however, undoubtedly be a more rigid enforce ment of the mine rules, and the indi vidual worker will have emphasized to him the necessity for constant atten tion to the ever-present dangers that surround his occupation. "The compensation act will there fore have the double virtue of tending to prevent accidents and of caring for the employes who arc so unfortunate as to suffer from them."
