THE LIBERAL POLICY. * COMPENSATION TO WORKERS. Now that the members of the Liberal party in the State Parliament have settled their difTerenccs, which naturally arise amongst cnon who think for themselves, tliey should be ready to frame and pass measures which make (or the highest good of the many. The triumph of Mr Watt and the recon struction of his Ministry mean, amongst other things, that instead ol a plunge into socialism, the wage earner will get certain very solid advantages. Amongst the measures that will do much to improve the position of the wage-earner is one to provide for compensation to workers occurring in the course of their employment. Under the old system the worker's chance of securing cDmpensation if disabled whilst at work was very doubtful ; the chance o( his widow receiving com pen sation if the injuries proved fatal was more doubtful. Many generous and wealthy employers acted liberally, but some employers are not generous aDd most employers are not wealthy. T...
