THE LABOR ADVOCATE COMPENSATION BILL SIGNED Washington. Last week President Wilson signed tlic Kcrn-McGillicuddy Workmen's Compensation act, which provides compensation for injuries and fatalities to the 400,000 employes of the federal government. Former legislation covered but one fourth of this number, or those engaged in hazardous occupations. A government commission is created to administer the new law. Three commissioners at $5,000 a year will be appointed by the Presi dent, and they will make such rules and regulations as arc necessary for the en forcement of the act, and arc empow ered to make decisions. The pajments for disability, as speci fied in the act, arc as follows: Total disability, 06 per cent of the monthly pay during the continuance of the disability, not to exceed $CG.C7 a month, and not less than $33.33, unless the employe's monthly pay is less than $3.1.33, m which case the compensation is to be full pay. Partial disability, GCJ3 per cent of the difference between the monthly pay at the time of the injury and the monthly wage-earning capacity after the begin ning of the partial disability, not to ex ceed $p0.07 per month. Medical, surgical and hospital services and supplies for a reasonable time and in a reasonable amount will be furnished to the injured employe by the govern ment. The exact details of this provi sion are left to the commission. STEAM KXGIXI3ERS MEET. Newark, N. J.

Judge Van Zile trudged up the long stairs to the county jail and offered freedom to five striking pattern makers, who have been jailed by him for violating an injunction, if they would promise to discontinue picketing. When Judge Van Zile sentenced these workers he thundered on the sacrcdncss of property and personal liberty which cost this nation billions of dollars to establish. But this wise and fearless expounder of justice, who told his victims he is a candidate for re-election, is shown in an other light as he offered freedom on his terms. "I thought you'd like to get in the Labor Day parade tomorrow," he whined. The pattern makers said thev would give him a reply later, and when their visitor had retired they jointly signed the following letter and forwarded it to Judge Van Zilc's residence by special messenger : "Relative to your conference with us this afternoon, we submit the following answer to your proposition to release us from jail after being confined here for 14 days, to-wit: "Under np consideration will we sur render our constitutional rights to sat isfy any employer of labor. "We hold that no one man has the right to deny us the privilege of passing any shop whether on strike or not, or to prevent us from talking to any man with the object in view of joining our organ ization to better his condition in life." Detroit. Judge Connolly has ordered the release of five strikine; pattern mak ers on bonds of $500 each until the su preme court passes on the decision of Judge Van Zile, who fined and sen tenced these unionists to jail for violat ing an injunction not to picket or visit the homes of strikebreakers. Judge Connolly's order was contested hv attorneys representing the Detroit Manufacturers' association. 1)ANGKHS IX MATTRESS MAKING. Albany, N. Y. The state commission, acting under authority of a law passed by the last legislature, is attempting to enforce sanitary conditions in the mat tress industry. In a recent speech to manufacturers of bedding, Dr. Roos, medical inspector of the department of labor, said : "Early in my work I noted the large percentage, of- disease among' the men employed in mattress .factories and pre sented the facts to the bureau of indus trial hjgicne which ordered a survey made and my department visited all the larger plants in New York city, 97 in all, and the conditions we found were simply appalling. In most of the plants dust lay thick on the floors, machines, walls and even on the ceilings the very atmosphere was permeated with it and fully 20 per cent, on an average, of the workmen were suffering from tuber culosis while others had various forms of skin and eruptiv'e diseases. Some of the factories were in cellars, others in converted tenement houses, former stables, etc.. and few had any adequate system of ventilation or proper toilet facilities. "In many factories there were piles of second-hand mattresses laying around which the manufacturers said were to be remade for private parties, etc., and in one place we found about 73 mattresses that had come from a Bowery lodging house and you can imagine the dirt, hltli, vermin and disease they carried. There can be no doubt that these mat tresses were to be made up not for pri vate parties, but as part of new goods." WOOD CAKVEKS WANT MOKE. Chicago.
