With a view toward determining the experfeneo of the various insurance companies in this respect, a study of the records in the Bureau of Workmen's Compenaev- tkn tor the year 3927 disclosed that 18.4 days was the average time taken to report accidents, ami 47.5 day* was the average time ttikon to file agreements tor the payment of compensation, with the bureau.

Theso data show that tho averago time for reporting accidents ha« been reduced to 17.9 days, and tho averago time for fiiiiiK compensation agreements has been reduced to 40.0 daye, a 2.7 per cent reduction in the aver- j age time required for the reporting of accidents, and 13.9 per cent reduction in the average time required for (ha eubrnlseion of agreements covering the payments of compensation.
