EASY TO SOLVE COMPENSATION U. S. Commission of Labor . Statistics Addresses Conference Toronto, Sept. 23.— American and Canadian officials dealing with work men's compensation and Industrial problems met here to-day in the sixth annual convention of the Inter national Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions. George A. Kingston, commissioner of the Ontario Compensation Board, presided as chairman and a score of American officials were among the speakers for the day. Discussing the desirability of uni formity of compensation acts, Royal Meeker, United States Com missioner of Labor Satlstics, in an address, declared it would be an easy matter to draft an act to cover all states and the Canadian prov inces in a better way than is ac complished by any existing state act. Differences in wages, hours, work ing conditions- in various industries offer no obstacle to uniformity, he said, provided the economic effects are taken account of. in the United States, he added, only the California compensation acts makes such pro vision. Mr. Meeker outlined in de tail the provisions he believed any Ideal compensation act should con tain. Opposes Uniform Act Charles A. Andrus, chairman of the Illinois Industrial Commission, declared he had reached the con clusion that a uniform act was neither possible no desirable. If such an act should be adopted by all states, he said, it would soon be so amended as to be unrecognizable. It was highly desirable, however, he said, that the association should agree on the essential features of such laws, drawn from common ex perience, and seek incorporation of these features when popular senti ment in each state or province per mitted the enactment of adequate compensation measures. Jeremiah F. Connor, special com missioner appointed to investigate the New York State Industrial Com mission, spoke of the administrative difficulties with compensation acts. "Overformal procedure" in making awards tended, he said, to cause too great delays, but he added that he had found the great majority of the people who had any connection with carrying out such acts to become im bued with wide sympathy for the injured men and their dependents.

Bolshevik Agents Being Scattered by Detectives London, Sept. 23.—The interna tional agents who are watching the Bolshevik leaders believe they have now so isolated them from the world that they are no longer efficient in the spread of their dangerous prop aganda. Direct communication between the Bolsheviki and their agents abroad is being rendered increasingly diffi cult. Four months have elapsed since the last direct communication from the Bolshevik leaders in Rus sia reached their fellows here. A Swede brought $30,000 here re cently for Bolshevik purposes. Five minutes after he delivered the money to an agent in London he was in custody. A Scotland Yard man was close to him during the whole of his journey to England.
