Washington State Has Model
Act for Employe and Employe
Spokane, Wash., June 23. Adequate
protection for employer and employe,
Increased safety of Industrial opera
tions, sure and certain relief for work
ers Injured at hazardous occupations
and their families, elimination of liti
gation and regulation by state police
powers of dangerous trades, are some
of the advantages claimed for the
workman's compensation act', which
will become effective in Washington
on the first day of next October.
The theory of the act, which was
adopted by the last legislature, is
stated in these words:
"The welfaro of the state depends
on Its industries and even more upon
the welfare of Its wage earners."
AH factories, mills and workshops
where machinery is used, come un
der the act, as also do foundries,
quarries, mines, smelters, powder
works, breweries, elevators, docks,
dredges, laundries, printing, engineer
ing, logging lumbering, ship building,
railroad and general building opera
tions, street and interurban railroads,
electrical power and heating plants
One hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars has been appropriated by the
state to bear the expense of adminis
tering the law, and Governor Hay has
appointed a com mission to have full
charge of the industrial Insurance
work, Including the collection of pre
miums and tho adjustment and set
tlement of claims. The commission,
which Is composed of George A. Lee,
of Spokane, chairman; C. A. Pratt, of
Tacoma, and J. If. Wallace, of Seattle,
has power to create new classes and
cptabllBh new rates. Howard L.
Hlndley of Spokane, Is secretary, with
headquarters at Olympia.
The law provides that each In dus
try in the state shall contribute a cer
tain percentage of Its pay roll to an
accident fund, from which various
sums are paid out for total or part dis
ability or on death to the family and
dependents of the Injured workman,
tho expense of handling the fund be
in borne by the state. Injured work
men, their families or dependents
cannot recover by law except where
tho Injury is caused by the intent of
the employer. In which case the work
man or his family may recover not
only the sums due under this act, but
also may sue for any excess of dam
age over those amounts.
Where a workman Is injured be
cause the employer has neglected to
observe the safeguards required by
law or by the regulations of the de
partment, the employer must pay 50
per cent more then the fixed amounts.
Where the workman intentionally in
jures himself he receives no benefit.
The Industries of the state are class
ified and certain premiums fixed for
each class. The employers are re
quired to pay three months' pre
miums Into the state treasury on or
before October 1, 1911. After De
cember 31, monthly payments are re
quired; provided however, that if any
industry has a sufficient amount on
deposit with the state to take care of
Its accidents no further payments
shall be required.
Each industry is responsible only
for the accidents occurring in that
class. It is intended that the accident
fund shall be neither more or less
than self supporting. The rates are
! subject to readjustment, depending on
the number of accidents and the need
for compensation of injured workmen.
Employers are required to report ac
cidents promptly, and their books,
records and pay rolls must be open
'for Inspection by the commission. Re
fusal to permit Inspection is made a
misdemeanor and tne employer also
Is penalized $100 for each offense, to
be collected by action In court and
paid into the accident fund.
Misrepresentation in his pay roll
makes the employer liable to ten
times the difference between the cor
rect and the wrongLf-res. If the em
ployer refuses oria!ISAto pay his
monthly assessments.' al- "Workman in
jured in his 8erWc saay sue in the
courts with the enVpteyef's defenses of
"fellow servant," "assumption of risk"
and "contributory, negligence" abol
ished. No part of the premium can be de
ducted from the wages of the work
man, the violation by the employer of
this section of the law being made a
gross misdemeanor, punishable by
one year In the county jail or by a
fine of $1,000 or both.
The schedule of payments for vari
ous injuries is as follows:
In the event of death, expenses of
burial, $75; payments to widow-or In
valid widower, $20 a month while un
married, $240 in a lump sum on re
marriage of the widow; for each sur
viving child under 16, $5 a month,
monthly amount limited to $35; if no
widow or widower survives, $10 a
month to each child under 16 years.
The same rule applies to children who
become orphans by death of surviving
parent, with monthly limit of $35. De
pendents will be paid 50 per cent of
the average monthly support formerly
received from the deceased workman,
limited to $20 a month. . Parents of
deceased unmarried workmen receive
$20 a month up to time deceased
would have been 21 years of age.
When totally disabled, loss of both
arms or one leg and arm, sight, par
alysis or other injury preventing the
workman from doing any work, enti
tles him to $20 a month if unmarried;
if supporting wife or invalid husband,
$25 a month; if the husband is not an
invalid, $15. For each child under 16
years, $5 additional a month up to a
total of $35. In case of death of the
totally disabled worker, the widow
or widower receives $20 a month until
death or remarriage and $5 a month
additional for each child under 16
years. Orphaned children receive $10
When disabled by the loss of a foot,
leg, hand or arm, eye or fingers, the
workman will receive a certain cash
lump sum up to $1,500. The loss of an
arm at the elbow is made the maxi
mum injury and the payment for oth
er injuries. is scaled down by the com
mission. If the injured workman re
sides or moves out of the state the
commission may lump the monthly
payments, not to exceed $4,000, based
on the American mortality table. Any
decision of the commission is subject
to appeal in the superior courts.

W, BUCKLEY; KING
HUNTERS: OFF AGAIN
Elephant Hunting Is Finest
in World Killed 8 in
It Is generally understood that tbc
sidesaddle used - by ladles In hone
back riding was the Invention of tbt
famous Catherine de Medici while sh
was queen regent of France, say about
1539. Among ber many other accom
plisbmenu Catherine was an expert
horsewoman and often spent days to
get her in bunting and following tb
chase. It was while getting used to
her new manner of riding necessitated
by her sidesaddle that the Queen re
cetved the fall which fractured her
skull snd came very near terminating
her career. As a matter of coarse it
was no sooner known that Catherine
had taken to riding sldewlse than the
custom became popular with the wo
men all over Kuropa. JCxcBange,
London, June 24. There was a
great gathering of big game hunters
at the reception room of the Ugunda
railway offices in the Haymarket to
say good-by to W. Buckley, who has
left for another elephant hunting ex
pedition in central Africa.
In the world of big game hunters
Mr. Buckley is readily acknowledged
to be king. Already five hundred el
ephantB have fallen to his rifle, which
Is the record for the world.
Mr. Buckley Is a typical hunter
hard and wiry, with keen eyes and the
light, easy tread of a man who car
ries his life in his hands in the wild
countries of the world. .
"I have had a good five menth's
holiday in England, and I leave for
Antwerp to join the steamship Leoold
vllle for Natadi, on the Congo river.
From there I set off on a journey
across Africa to Mombasa. I 6hall
have from seventy to one hundred
bearers to carry my ammunition and
'hop boxes, which are already pack
ed and on the way. I estimate the
Journey will occupy me for twelve
Finest Sport in the World.
"As for the elephant shooting, well,
all hunters admit that it is the finest
sport in the world. When the news
comes that there are elephants about
the whole neighborhood is seething
with excitement. The natives go fran
tic, and everything is forgotten except
"When I went out to 6hoot my first
elephant on the banks of the Nile, the
natives rushed me off as if I had to
catch a bus at the end of the street.
We marched for four hours before we
came upon the herd. I was a begin
ner then, and was a long time bring
ing down my first elephant.
"There are three curious things
about the elephant.
"1. Although he is the biggest ani
mal in the world, he is the hardest to
see, for he is the same color of the
"2. For all his vast area; there is
little more than a square foot of him
that is vulnerable to a bullet.
"3. All elephants are 'left handed.'
as Is proved by the fact that the left
tusk is always shorter, being worn
away with work.
$2,500 Worth of Ivory in 30 Minutes
"My biggest bag of elephants in one
day was- ten. but. the most profitable
was a day when I. shot eight, and their
tusks weighed eixty-six pounds. It
took me halt an hour to shoot them,
and the ivory was worth $2,500. Of
course it was an exceptionally big day.
"The tusks of the biggest elephant
weighed 282 pounds the right tusk
147 pounds and the left 135 pounds.
Ivory varies in price from $2 a pound
to $3, the latter price being for the
hard brittle ivory of the forest ele
"The price depends, too, on the sex
of the elephant. The cow ivory is
worth as much as $5 a pound; the
bull, perhaps, $3.
"The elephant is a very blind ani
mal. From tests carried out be can
not see further than 170 yards, but he
can scent a man for half a mile, and
can distinguish between a white man
and a black man. When he charges
he always makes for a white man.
Lion Shooting Tame
"You meet some strange characters
in the heart of the African forest
sometimes," continued Mr. Buckley.
"There was a Swede, for instance,
who walked from Mombasa to Khar
toum with no other asset than a string
of cowrie shells value about 40 cents.
Of course, he lived as the natives do,
that is, on the fruits and vegetables
that grow in the forests.
"A white man is safe enough, but a
native would be killed by a rival tribe
if he strayed twenty miles away from
Most of the big game hunters
agreed that lion shooting was dull af
ter hunting elephants.
Amongst the hunter who had assem
bled in the picturesque reception room
of the Ugunda railway officees, which
are fitted up to resemble a camp in
the forest, was F. H. Barley, who was
in charge of Prince Arthur of Con
naught's Hon shooting trip in British
"Lions are often cowardly," he said,
"but one that Prince Arthur shot was
the pluckiest I have ever seen..
"He charged straight up the ravine
at him, regardless of the row of guns,
and was making straight for the
Prince when he brought him down."
