Strana 264 - The amount of compensation recoverable under this act shall not exceed such sum as may be found to be equivalent to the estimated earnings, during the three years preceding the injury, of a person in the same grade employed during those years in the like employment and in the district in which the workman is employed at the time of the injury.

Evidently it is useless to expect any decided legislation until the people generally are made to see the justness and correctness of the position...
Strana 317 - Experience has everywhere demonstrated that the great mass of those workingmen who are poorly off will not voluntarily insure themselves.
