STREET PARADE DAILY
Journal of yesterday, has i'.io follow
ing to xiy:
"Compensation CotntnIs!Stoner Frye
has held that the Burlington rail
road com.iuny must pay $l,GGG for
the death of one o; its employees,
William S. Brunei-, in spite of the
fact that the state compensation
luw excludes railroads from the
state law and places them under the
federal compensation law.
"The state commissioner finds that
the employee wa3 killed while em
ployed as a workman upon a culvert
near Red Cloud, January 11, 1023,
and that his widow is entitled to
$13.33 1-3 a week for not to exceed
350 weeks. The employee was a
laborer working about four miles
east of Red Cloud. Rocaufe he, with
other employees, was working upon
a fjew culvert for the railroad. This
culvert was not open to interstate
trafllc at the time and the state
comniijsioner holds that the status
o the employee should be taken at
the time of the injury. He finds the
work wus not contributing to inter-
state commerce. io cxciuue u ran-
roa' company from the stafe conv
pensation law the employe himself
must be acting in furtherance of in
terstate transaction as well as tlte
employer. He said it is not reason
able to say that because an employe
was not acting in furtherance of in
terstate commerce at the time of an
accident or death, he or his depen
dents would be barred from re
covery. "Altho the railroad company has
nob insured its employees or satisfied
the state comr.ii.. ooner of its ability
to pay, such non-action, according to
court decisions, has the effect of
causing the company to elect to
come under the compensation law.
Payments now due under this order
are to commence immediately and
to date from January 11, 1923.
IJurial expenses are also added to
the weekly compensation. The rail
way company pleaded specific exclu
sions from the state law ay reason
of being an interstate carrier".
