I.nrirrr Pt-rcenlagr of Accident than
In Other Ljinila.
Our national carelessness I tho ex
planation given by the Literary Digest
for our dreadful record of accident,
say American Medicine. In reviewing
an article by O. E. Walsh upon accident-preventing
devices In America
(Casilcr's magazine), It Is shown that
we stand flrxt In the world In the acci
dent record nnd tbnt the rule seem
to npply to nil trade and profession.
The proportion of miner killed, for
Instance, Is nearly treblo that In France,
nnd about double that In other Kuro
ean countries. For every Ave men
killed by accident In the United 8tatea
there are only three In nil nations of
Europe combined. Our railroads alone
kill twenty-one jieople every day. The
remarkable fact I brought out that w
lead the world fa the Invention or tvccl
dent-preveutlng devices, and adopt
fewer of them than any otb CClsifjv
Indeed, many of the luveutlona tTST
to Europe for recognition and adoption.
It is claimed that our workmen wllj.
not use the safety device, a sometjilng
childish, but prefer to run the risk like
men. This Is true, but It Is also true
of European workmen. Indeed, the old
story of the safety lamp In mine snow
that accustomed dangers are forgotten
Permanent "museum of security,"
such nn that In Amsterdam.. Walsh
say, should bo established. In thero
thero are on constant exhibition every
concelvabto device for lesseulng risk to
life from accident. They will educate
the public, nnd the workmen will grad
ually be brought to the point of de
manding protection. It Is suggested
that employer be held to a stricter
accountability nud bo compelled by law
to safeguard employes, as In Europe,
but It cau be replied that American
workmen will not submit to restriction
easily Imposed In Europe. They aro
freo agents, with n right to kill them
solves. If they please, or Injure other.
No man Is his brother' keeper hero,
nnd this Is probably tho real basis for
our national disregard of the right of
others. It 1 more than carelessness.
The surgeons of the country see nil
these nccldouts, nnd carefully investi
gate each case. It seems reasonable
to suggest that they should be nblo to
see the causes and suggest remedte.
Knowing more of the matter than any
other body of men, can they not take
homo concerted action which would
make life safer In America?
American disregard for human life I
the fact which seem to Impress Euro
pean visitor moro profoundly than any
other characteristic. Since wo claim
to bo tbo most democratic people on
earth, It seem remarkable that with
more power lu our hand than nny oth
er nation, wo nro unnblo to safeguard
ourselves to anything like the extent
accomplished by monarchic nations of
tho enlightened parts of Europe.
