INSURANCE UNDER THE WORK. MEN'S ACT. SUN FIRE The oldest Insurance Office In the world A.D. 1710 19IO HOME OrriCE i LONDON. ENGLAND t C. B. BOWMAN, LETHBRIDGE, AGENT, circumstance, fairly be more than one.half of a similar amount under the English Act. Take the case, for instance, of a man of thirty age drawing the maximum weekly payment under the Alberta Act, name- ly, ten dollars a week. We will sup- pose him to have been permanently disabled by accident so that he has up hope or prospect of ever earning a dollar again, but he nevertheless still survives and recovers his health so that in spite of his incapacity he has every prospect of going on living for years. Gases of this kind are rare, as everybody knows, but assume Side I wnat exieni, u any, any substance in the complaint of such a case. A reference to the Eng- lish annuity tables shows that such is could buy au annuity oi a year- (the total annual sum of his weekly payments under the Alberta for seventy-five per cent, of which is Now, allow- ing ior the difference in the interest the employers that because of the un- certainty as to the length of time weekly payments may be continued under the Alberta Workmen's Com- pensation Act, it is impossible for them to obtain, insurance fully cover-j courts in such a case would not be ing the risks imposed upon them by j Beater than one-half this amount, or ti, I At all events, the Act will not this Act? Let us examine- the -n 5peration ]one ihe every reason .to suppose that the that would be fixed by our tion dispassionately in the light ofjiay down 3 definite rale on the sub- known and ascertainable facts. First i. jeci, which rule will apply as long as employer under the Act. Clearly, if this is ascerttrinable insurance to the amount of that risk is "an absolute protection to that employer. In" case accident results in death no difficulty is experienced, because the limit or maximum of risk is fix- ed by the Act itself at so that so far as death is concerned insur- ance on each employee to the extent j of would def the British Columbia Workmen's pute Compensation Act, where the limit {today. of compensation, both in the case.of death "and permanent- disability, is interest- the courts will increase the redeem. afble amount. The provision of the Alberta Act leaving this matter in j the hands of the courts is, under the i circumstances present in this "co'un- try at the present time, a wise one. But allowing for a very much greater latitude than that indicated, and for variances in the average- age of em- ployees, an employer would be abso- lutely protected under, the Alberta Act bv insuring to the extent of INDIANA'S TROUBLE WITH j SHEEPK1LLJNG DOGS (tfrorn the Indianapolis News.)

So the only limit upon the amount of the weekly payments un- der the Alberta Act is that at the in, stance of the and trfter "such payments have 'been continued for aii months, they may be redeem- ed by the" payment of such a lump sum as the court shall deem Tfi e difference the two Acts rests upon fhe fact that the Al- berta Government realized and pro- vided for the Trery important circum- stance" that a man who is perman- esilr 4isabfed is deprived of "all hia earning capacity by an accident, but who nevertheless is a very considerable expense to his fam- ily, and that -nis family are conse- ed to a very muA y of compensation than tailed outright.

"Moreover., it should not .be forgot- ten in this connection that under the Act where a lump sum is arrived at at- which weekly payments may redeemed, and is paid by em- ployer, if death afterwards results from the accident such sum must be deducted from the compensation due 'to the dependants. The Act has been carefully drawn so that no injustice shall be done either to the workmen usder it by limiting the amount of weekly payments arbitrarily, but, on the contrary, leaving this to be decided by the court on application of the employer, or to .the employer by forcing him to pay twice for the same accident, once to the workman and again, to the dependants" of the workman in the event of death re- 'sulting from the accident.

Jt'is- -a very common thing, as everybody knows, to find juries and courts giv- ing much "larger- damages in cases of accidents that cripple a man for life than in cases of fatal accidents; and the reason is because the damages suffered by the injured man's family are in fact much great- er in the one case than in the other, "To limit the in case of permanent disability, except as it is done- in the Alberta Act, by leaving- it to the caurt to say -what the amount should -be, is illogical and unjust.
