Are Twenty Per Cent Fewer In 1909 Than the Preceding Year So Says Mr. Van Duyn. Des Moines, Aug. 29.—Fatal ac cidents decreased 20 per cent in Iowa factories during the years 1908-09, ac cording to the biennial report to be made by State Labor Commissioner E. W. Van Duyn to Gov. B. F. Carroll. Figures in the report show that 21 fatal accidents and 2,485 non-fatal ac cidents occurred. "Machinery not properly guarded" is the cause of most fatalities. The general improvement is commented on, but it says "there are many unnecessary and easily a voldable injuries inflicted upon work men." During the year 1908 there were 661 Inspections made and in 1909 1,819, or a total of 2,480. The total number of employes in the factories inspected numbered 75,846. Of these 59,425 were man and boys over id years, 15,371 were women and girls and 1,086 were boys and girls betwen 14 and 16 years of age. Commendation of the new child labor law is made by Commissioner Van Duyn. He says that the statute putting the burden of proof of age on the employer has been beneficial. The system of furnishing age certificates is also praised. "This amendment to the law has practically eliminated the use of child labor under 14 years of age," is the sentence with which the report sums up the situation. Many figures have been gathered in the report from wage earners, but the percentage which answered the queries was relatively small, so the results are of little value. Only 519 wage earners replied to the questions. Out of 446 men, 276 were employed full time and 170 reported idle time vary ing from eighteen days to six months. Out of twelve women, nine, or 75 per cent gave an average rate off wages as $595.44 a year. The average hours per day of these men wage earners was given as 9.97. The twelve women averaged 8.6 hours. From the 507 men, 346 were discov ered who carried life insurance, the average amount being $1,989.05. Five of the dozen women carried life in surance, the average policy being $1,200. From the male reports it was found that 278 had fire insurance poli cies averaging $1,205.90 each. Forty six per cent of the ,men owned their homes or had equities in same. Oue of the twelve women owned her home. Mr. Wycoff who has been visiting his son J. P. Wycoff and family here left Monday for his home near Coun cil Bluffs, la.
