of the insurance carrier and that the insurance carrier shall
in all things be bound by and subject to the orders, findings,
decisions or awards rendered against the employer for the
payment of compensation under the provisions of this Act.

Every such policy shall contain a provision to the effect that
the insolvency or bankruptcy of the employer shall not relieve
the insurance carrier from the payment of compensation for
injuries or death sustained by an employee during the life of
such policy.

Every contract or agreement of an employer the purpose
of which is to indemnify him from loss or damage on account
of the injury of an employee by accidental means, or on ac-
count of the negligence of such employer or his officer, agent
or servant., if engaged in extra-hazardous employment, shall
be absolutely void unless it shall also cover liability for the
payment of the compensation provided for by this Act.

No contract or insurance issued by a stock company or
mutual association against liability arising under this Act
shall be cancelled within the time limited, in such contract for
its expiration until at least ten days after notice of intention
to cancel such contract, on a date specified, in such notice, shall
be filed in the office of the Commission and also served on the
employer. Such notice shall be served on the employer by
delivering it to him or by sending it by mail, by registered let-
ter, addressed to the employer at his or its last known place
of residence; provided, that if the employer he a partnership,
then such notice may be so given to any one of the partners,
and if the employer be a corporation, then the notice may be
given to any agent or officer of the corporation upon whom
legal process may be served.

SEC. 31. Nothing herein shall affect any existing contract
of policy of employer's liability insurance or the liability of
any mutual insurance association, or any arrangement now ex-
isting between employers and employees, providing for the
payment to such employees, their families, dependents or
representatives of sick, accident or death benefits in addition
to the compensation provided for by this Act; but liability
for the compensation specified in this Act shall not be reduced
or affected by any insurance, contribution or other benefit
whatsoever, due to or received by the person entitled to such.
compensation, and the person so entitled shall, irrespective of
any such insurance or other contract, have the right to re-
cover the compensation directly from the employer.
