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.
Sextuple Launching,
New World Record,
Planned For Oct. 11
Oakland, Calif., Sept. 23.—Sex
tuple launching, setting a new
world's record, is planned by the
Moore Shipbuilding Company of
Oakland for October 11 when three
big tankers and a like number of
freighters are to be shunted into the
waters of Oakland's inner harbor
across the bay from San Francisco.
The vessels have an aggregate
tonnage of 64,200, the tankers, City
of Reno, Saliira and Sapulpa, being
of 12,000 tons each and the freight
ers, Jalapa, Moselle and Jaelow, of
9,400 tons each.
Two of the ships will be started
In their way to the sea by President
Wilson and Secretary of War Baker,
who, according to plans, will press
electric buttons in Washington,
starting the launchings here.
King Albert Printed
on Belgian Stamps
From Post Office
London, Sept. 23.—King Albert,
as military leader of the Belgians, is
Immortalized in the' new Belgian
postage stamps which have jusl
been received in London. The
series portrays the King in active
service kit, wearing the familiar
steel casque of the Belgian army.
A new issue of Abyssian stamps
also have reached here. There are
fifteen of them, each one showing
the possibilities of the country for
big game hunting, with elephants,
tigers, lions and other wild animals
handsomely printed in two colors.
Jamaica's victory stamp is an
other newcomer. It is an oblong
label, prnted in dark green, show
ing troops on board a transport
above the inscription "Troops De
parting."
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.
Italy Asks Aid in
Expelling D'Annunzio
From Fiume, Report
London, Sept. 23.—The Italian
government has appealed to the Al
lied powers to send an Allied force,
exclusive of Italians, to drive D'An
nunzio out of Fiume, according to
a report here, which is considered re
liable.
Completes Portraits
For War Department
Paris- Sept. 23.—An important col
lectfon of portraits of allied war
leaders has just been completed here
by Dana Pond, the American artist,
and will be sent shortly to Wash
ington for presentation to the War
Department as the joint gift of Mr.
Pond and the American Red Cross.
The collection includes individual
portraits of General Pershing, Gen
eral Bliss, Colonel House, Admiral
Benson and Marshal Petaln, together
with a group painting of the Su
preme War Council, showing General
Bliss, General Di Robliant, General
Belin and General Sackville-West.
The big group painting represents
the allied military chiefs in the con
ference room at Versailles, analyz
ing the Intricate military situation at
the time the Germans were driven
back at all points along the West
err front Just before the armistice.
