WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION AND INSURANCE: LAWS AND

BILLS, 1911.

LINDLEY D. CLARK, A. M., LL. M.

In the Bulletin of the Bureau of Labor for September, 1910, there was published a review of the conditions then existing in the movement in various States for modifications in the laws governing the recovery of damages or of compensation for injuries to employees. Since that date most of the commissions named in the article have made reports, some laws have been enacted, and the New York compulsory compensation law has been held by the court of last resort of that State to be unconstitutional. It is the purpose of the present article to notice briefly the subjects presented in the reports of the commissions, to reproduce the enacted laws and certain bills, and to discuss briefly these laws and bills and the decisions on the New York law.

REPORTS OF COMMISSIONS.

The commission of Montana is the only one of those mentioned in the September Bulletin from which no report has been received. The reports at hand will be considered in order.

ILLINOIS.

The report of the Illinois commission is a compact small octavo volume of 249 pages, presenting a brief record of the work of the commission; a draft of a bill; a discussion of the constitutionality of a compensation law; records of cases heard before certain courts of the State; the record of the coroner of Cook County, in which the city of Chicago is situated; special studies of the coal mining industry, railroads, manufactories, etc., from the standpoint of hazard, and showing accident records and compensation for injuries; and other valuable statistical and economic data. The discussion as to constitutionality was made by the commission's attorney, who expressed the conviction that compulsory compensation will be generally accepted within a decade as being within the police power of the State to provide for. He recommended, however, as a concession to the present state of information and public opinion,
