5.7 per cent in 1905, and 6 per cent in 1906. The metal-working industry (primarily iron), building and construction, mining, and textiles claimed the vast majority of the industrial accidents in 1906, over 63 per cent.

The causes of accidents for 1902, July to December, 1904, and for 1905, are shown in the following table. As the data were taken from two distinct sources, with somewhat different methods of classifying causes, they are not strictly comparable for 1902 and the two later periods.

The table shows that more than half of the industrial accidents occurring in 1904 and in 1905 were caused by landslides, falling bodies, striking against objects, and falls; 61.22 per cent of the total number of accidents in 1905 being attributed to these causes.

The distribution of accidents by causes is further shown in the following table for each industrial group. Certain common causes are responsible for a large number of accidents in each industry; such are falling bodies, falls, striking against objects, etc.; but certain definite causes are more frequent in certain industries. Thus, working machinery is responsible for large numbers of accidents in the metal working and textile industries, landslides and falling bodies in mining and metal working, falls in building and construction and mines, etc.

Information concerning the variations in the number of accidents by days of the week is available only for the six months, July to December, 1904. The actual number of accidents occurring during each day of the week is shown by industrial groups in the following table.

With the exception of the small number of accidents occurring on Sunday, the number of accidents for the different days of the week appears to be fairly uniform, but shows a tendency to increase toward the end of the week. The relations vary somewhat from industry to industry, probably due to local conditions of the industry. NUMBER OF ACCIDENTS, BY DAY OF THE WEEK AND BY INDUSTRY, JULY TO

The number of accidents occurring on the various days of the week are shown by the principal causes in the following table. The increase of the frequency toward the end of the week is noticeable in nearly

all groups.
