Flysik, Member of I State Safety and Medical Aid, Boards.) April 29, 1920. A recent report compiled by the Aetna Life Insurance Company on accidental deaths, shows that there were 53,544 fatal accidents in the I'nited States for the year 1919, most of which could have been prevented were it not for gross neg ligence on the part of pedestrians and operators of public conveyances or the absence of adequate mechan ical safeguarding and "CARELESS NESS" on the part of persons em ployed In our industrial establish ments. The following table shows tho number of fatalities produced by each cause. Fatalities. Falls from elevators, build ings, etc 11,114 Railroads 8,649 BttrM 6,830 Automobiles 6,724 Drowning 5,550 Aspyhxlation 3,375 Mines 2,628 Miscellaneous vehicles 2,326 Street cars 2,277 Machines 2,112 All other miscellaneous causes 1,964 Total 53,544 The ahovo figures are appalling, especially when we take into con sideration that this enormous loss of human life is largely preventable. Admitting that the value of a hu man life cannot be measured in dollars and cents, nevertheless, ac cording to the American mortality table, the average loss of the life of a person is being estimated at a value of four thousand dollars ($4,000.00), which of course rep resents a very small pittance when computed on the basis of a single payment, but supposing that the States through their industrial in surance laws or some life Insur ance company, would have to pay 54.000.00 to the dependents of each one of the 53,544 deceased persons, this would bring tho cost up to $214,176,000.00. What an exor bitant toll we are paying for "CARELESSNESS" —what a wast age of human life? Nothing is mentioned herein of the hundreds and thousands of vic tims who were maimed and crippled through the same gaencles during this period of time, many of whom, perhaps, have never recovered from their Injuries and are therefore obliged to subsist on alms from so ciety for the remaining years of their lives. When the industries and the pub lic in general, become fully con scious of the needless sacrifice of our stern citizenship and the huge financial wastage that Is being an nually levied against tho nation's resources from preventable and un necessary accidental calamities, I am confident that not only every ef fort will bo marshaled together to prevent public and Industrial acci dents, but that the humanitarian appeals that aro now being made by our safety organizations will be ex- pounded from public rostrums, taught In public schools, depicted on the screen in public theaters, and last but not least, the workmen In every extra hazardous Industry will become not only artisans of trade, but also of "SAFETY." It la therefore, apparent that ac cident prevention Is looked upon to day as an actual reality rather than a social theory, and Us ultimate suc cess or failure depends entirely upon thoee who are actively en gaged in Industrial production, be thry employers or workmen. There Is no question of its perpetuity in each establishment whenever these Joint agencies become thoroughly awakened to their collective re sponsibility and the direct relation ship a safety organisation bears to productive efficiency, soundness of body and prolonged longevity of the Industrial worker. The State Safety Board is con ducting a vigorous campaign In the industries coming within tho scope of the Law. with a view of enlist ing the services of every employer Everett Co-operative Society 2933 Broadway Phone Main 342 A union store and meat market, selling union made goods wherever possible.

The lfdustries are now being circular ized with llteraturo on accident prevention and are receiving gen eral and special safety code stand ards for the adequate safeguarding of dangerous hazards, recognizing that the success of this humanitar ian movement depends entirely upon the co-operation and energetic interest manifested in it by the em ployer, workman and generally speaking, tho public.

It will be good news to Amer icans who are tired of tho war-hys teria that in England the return to sanity has gone so far that Bert rand Russell, who was dismissed from his position at Cambridge Uni- versity because of his opposition to the war, has heen reinstated-—and, best news of all, reinstated on the demand of soldier students return ing from the war, who compelled the University to expunge from its records tho minutes of his dismis sal. Bertrand Russell has long been celebrated among scholars as one of the two or three greatest philoso phers In the world today. But It was during the war that he sprang Into popular fame, becoming one of tho outstanding figures in the courageous minority which In Eng land protested against the over throw of liberty by militarism, and a teacher of bold and far-reaching political and economic ideas to vast audiences of enthusiastic working men. His Influence was so great that he was forbidden to come to America to deliver a series of lec tures at Harvard University— the British Government fearing to let the American people know that a man like Bertraud Russell thought about what was going on in Eng land. Now that he has resumed his toachlng in England's greatest uni versity, he has not, however, ceased his activities in the radical move ment. He has Just written an epoch-making discussion of the world-situation today, in which he makes clear the reasons why he and so many other people have come to tho conclusion, since the war. that capitalism is in its last stages, and must give way very soon to a new order based on a complete trans formation of the economic structure of society. Universal military training means the downfall of organized labor. Smoke Chas. Sheets' CHALLENGE 10c Cigars. THE LABOR JOURNAL THE METAL TRADES I STRIKE SITUATION In San Francisco May Day mark ed tho beginning of the eighth month of the Bay Cities Metal Trades strike, In which more than 40,000 workers have been Involved since October 1, 1919. Speaking on the occasion before the San Francisco Labor Council, Frank C. Miller, Secretary of the Bay Cities -Metal Trades Council, said: "Tho strike Is in aa good condi tion today as it was seven months ago. We have made wonderful progress during the last few weeks. We havo won over virtually all the commercial shops and will soon be in a position to concentrate our at tack on the shipyards. "Tho metal trades workers are fighting with the spirit that has made San Francisco famous In union labor circles everywhere. It will be remembered that it was some 8,000 metal trades workers of the Bay District who in 1901 fought for eleven months for the nine-hour day. This heroic fight established the unions in so strong a position that not until last October, eighteen years later, did the employers dare to attempt to disregard the rights of the workers. j San Francisco has tho reputation jof never having lost an important labor fight. There Is not a chance jin tho world of this fight being lost. "Wo have fought for seven months. We Intend to continue the fight until victory is complete. Our men are prepared to do tho fight ing, but to carry on the battle with full vigor, they must have financial assistance. In exact ratio as union labor men and union labor women value union principles, they will support tho winning fight of the Bay Cities Metal Trades workers that is being waged against the greatest advocate of breaking labor unions In the United States —the Steel Trust." Miller further reported that be cause of their inability to get skilled mechanics to work iv their yards under non-union conditions, the shipbuilders of the Bay District are unable to undertake new con tracts, or even to do tho repair work they have on hand. Twenty three vessels belonging to the United States Shipping Board are laid up in the Bay District ports < waiting for repairs, according to Miller. Tho Shipping Board re cently ruled that all important re pairs to its vessels would in futuro be done by the Navy Department at ■ Mare Island. It seems that the plants of the Bay District shipbuild ers are so disorganized that they cannot do even minor repair work. A veritable panic has overtaken tho strikebreakers employed in these shipyards. Hundreds of strikebreakers are leaving the yards daily. When they leave, in most cases they leave not only their Jobs, but they take rtains and boats that will carry them far from the Bay Cities. This exodus Is primarily due to the remarkublo Intelligence system the strikers have developed. Every strikebreaker is known to the union inn, and the strikebreakers cannot appear in public without being made decidedly uncomfortable. Tho shipbuilders are doing their utmost to intimidate the strikers. One of their Imported thugs, em ployed as a guard at the Union Iron Works, a few days ago shot and killed Thomas Laughran, a member of the local Boilermakers' Vnion. The shooting occurred a full half mllo from the plant of tho Union Iron Works. Laughrau was shot when he'refused to move on at the guard's bidding.

The methods used In paying strike benefits to the thousands of strikers have been so well per fected that they represent the last word In business-like efficiency and accuracy. Regular strike payroll blanks are used In making the pay ments. Each striker must sign the roll for the particular benefit he receives, and his signature must be approved by the officials of his union and the officials of tho Bay Cities Metal Trades Council. The payroll and the books are gonn over every week by the Execu tive Committee of the Bay Cities Metal Trades Council. With three or four checks for evory payment, absolute accuracy and honesty arc assured. Every member union of the Bay Cities Metal Trades Council keeps a record tho number of men It has working and the number of men it has idle. Whenever a striker starts to work, his union takes him off its strike payroll, the Council Is noti fied, and the man ceases to draw bonefits. TRIPLE ALLIANCE URGES ACTIVITY 419 Commerce Bldg.

COURT DECISIONS; LABOR QUESTIONS It would seem almost as if the enactment of a law- proposing to protect the rights of one party Im mediately raised the question as to whether the rights of another had not been unconstitutionally in fringed. The Bureau of Labor Sta tistics of the U. S. Department of Labor has Just Issued its annual compilation of deciFions of courts affecting labor (Bulletin No. 258); and of the 180 odd rases included therein, more than a score in' 'ving tho power of the Legislature to en act the law under which suit was brought, tho objector being in every case a person claiming to be inju riously affected by the act. Sometimes the. f'ourt decides ad versely to the Legislature, as In the case of tho Federal Child Lahor Law by which Congress undertook to ex clude from Interstate commerce the products of child labor in the va rious States. It was held that the attempt to regulate the conditions covered by the law was in excess of the Federal authority, being purely within in the control of the State, so that the law could not he en forced; so also of a law of Louisi ana, declaring a special liability of public service corporations for in juries to any of their employees, the Court holding the act unconstitu tional because it placed in one class workmen engaged In non-hazardous and In hazardous occupations. Another instance in which the action of tho lawmakers was held to exceed its constitutional powers involved a tipping law of Califor nia. This act did not actually pro hibit the giving of tips, but forbade the employer to require employees to turn their tips over to him. This was said to be unwarranted inter ference with the right of employers and employees to contract. In most cases, however, the Leg islatures havo been vindicated, as by the Supreme Courts of Massa chusetts and Washington, uphold ing the Minimum Wage Laws of the respective States; that of Pennsyl vania sustaining a law forblddint. night work by children under 16 years of age; and those of New- Jersey and Now York upholding progressive legislation on the sub ject, of Workmen's Compensation. The New York case Involved the: creation of a special fund to com pensate 6econd Injuries, contribu tions to be made to it by employers of worlclngmen fatally injured and leaving no beneficiary under the act. The Clayton Act, amending the Federal Anti-Trust Law, was held by a United States District Court of Appeals to have set aside some of the Judicial restrictions on the right of labor unions to maintain boy cotts against objectionable products of manufacture. Tho Machinists' Union of New York had blacklisted a printing press manufactured in Michigan, under open shop condi tions. Boycotts and threats of strikes prevented drayage, installa tion, or repair of these presses; and it was held by a majority of the Court that, though the very thing attempted by the unions had been pronounced unlawful in the famous Danbury Hatters' case, the Clayton Act rendered it legal at the present time. There was a strong dissent to this opinion, the statement being made that what would have been unlawful in this case before the passage of the Clayton Act was not made lawful by the act. This bulletin presents a selection from many hundred cases examined, and its representative character renders it of great interest to stu dents of the legal aspect of the la bor problem. THRIFT AGENTS The individual benefit to union members and tho collective benefit to union labor through following the recommendation of the national convention of the American Federa tion of Labor endorsing Govern ment Savings Securities as a safe and profitable investment for union funds and the savings of wage earn ers, has induced the California t'tate Building Trades Council to pledge renewed co-operation with the savings campaign of the Gov ernment. At the State convention of the Council at Bakerfield the Council "pledged anew its unqualified en dorsement and support to the con tinuation and extension of the I'nited States War Savings and Thrift Stamp Institution.'" Many unions have appointed thrift agents who, by means of a revolving fund provided them by the union, handle sales of Thrift and War Savings Stamps to union rtembcrs. , Try BLUE RIBBON" Cigar, 6c.
