Chicago, Dec. upper berth of a Pullman was further disparaged yesterday -when two women took the witness stand before Interstate Com- merce Commissioner Lane, who is considering a plea that an upper berth should cost half of the price charged ior a lower. The witnesses also affirmed that it is terrible to "tip the porter, said tipping being ne- cessary "to get any kind of service." Mrs. Anna McNulty and Mrs. A. E. Voraewek, whose business calls for constant travelling, were the witness- es. They would never take an upper berth unless compelled to do so by force of circumstances, both agreeing that there is a great deal of trouble in getting in and out of one, and that the ventilation is bad. "In travelling in a Pullman car'do you find it necessary to tip the por- asked Attorney Hannahaa. "It is, if one expects to get any: kind of service at answered Mrs. McNulty. wanted.

Workmen's Compensation Act, Which Becomes Operative January 1st, 1909, Not Only Provides for Com- pensating Workmen -for Injuries Sustained at Work, but Insures Con- sideration of Dependants in Case Accident is Fatal. Edmonton, Doc. Work- men's Compensation Act comes into force with the new year. The Act applies to men engaged in or about any raihvay, factory, mine, quarry, or engineering work, or upon any building more than forty feet 'in I height in whose construction scaffold- ing or mechanical power is used. It does not apply to men at other than manual labor whose salaries exceed per year, nor to casual em- ployees, nor to those doing "piece- work" on premises not under the con- trol of the employer. To every such employee the Act provides that in the event of injury arising in the course of, and out of, his employment, the employer shall be liable to pay compensation if the time lost be more than two weeks. If death result his dependants are ensured a sum in compensation pro- portioned to his earning power at the employment in which he was injured. If he leaves no dependants a sum is stipulated to cover medical and bur- j ial expenses. A Weekly Allowance.

In the event of death his dependants are to receive a sum equal to his wages for three years preceding if engaged with the same employer, or whichever sum be the larger. If not so employed the sum is to be 156-times his aver- age earnings while in such employ- ment.
