These referoudiuns were not invoked hy the people of

lie is a member of a firm of attorneys who specialize on
damage suits and have grown rich by it. Assisting tho
fight against the measure arc the casualty insurance com
panies, who insure employers against employes' injuries
and then use. the courts to fight the injured.
"Why the insurance companies oppose the law is plain.
It interferes with thqir business. The extent of their bus
iness is shown by tho annual report of the state insurance
commissioner. Juir the vear ending December:!. 15J12, the
insurance companies received from employers $68,1,141 in
'premiums, and paid in losses $tl4.'J26. leaving the neat
sum ot $268,S14 as proms, and administration cost.
Tl.t t 1 f M 1 1 I 1 1 - .1
j no iiersonai : who sun auornevs ice aim court costs
average over half of the sum paid to injured workmen. The
attorneys and the casualties companies thus received
$475,000 and the injured workmen but $200,000 of the
amount paid last year. In addition, the taxpayers must
maintain conns and juries to try nianv cases witere no
damages are received a dead loss to the state.
Examination of the business done by the casualty conf
pnnies during the years 1910-U shows that only 4'.t.9 per
cent of the premiums paid went to the injured. That this
43.9 per cent was paid only after every possible effort had
been made to prevent it and the poor workman compelled
to fight the rich insurance company by the aid of a greedy
damage lawyer, who got half of the 411.9 per cent, leaving
probably 20 per cent of the total premiums paid for the
The 5G.1 per cent of the premiums is kept by the insur
ance concerns and make possible their big dividends. In
the state of "Washington the administration of the com
pensation law cost 10 per cent which shows the economic
waste involved in paying D0.1 per cent to lialdlty com
panies. The purpose of th'e compensation law is to create a
state industrial accident commission, composed of three
commissioners, to provide a fund for the compensation of
injured workmen employed in hazardous occupations, to
be raised partly by the state, partly by employers anil
partly by employes, the commission to determine the
amount under the act to be paid any person or persons on
account of any injury received in the course of his employ
ment, according to a fixed scale.
Every injured workman is entitled to compensation for
his injuries, without having a lawsuit and dividing with a
lawyer. The compensation law provides that the injured
workman shall automatically, and as a matter of right,
receive adequate compensation without interference or in
tervention of insurance companies, lawvers or courts.
Every employer wants the money he pays to injured
men to tro to the njurcd and their families. Now he is
helpless and has to accept terms insurance companies and
The benefits of the compensation act can be briefly
summed up as follews: The employer knows that alt the
money he pays is going for tho relief of tho injured; the
workman knows, in the event of injury, he and his depend
ents arc immediately provided for; the citizen knows that
tho poverty which often accompanies disability or death
will bo relieved. Onlv the lawvers and the easualtv com
