=The Department of Industrial Relations.=

The act of the Eighty fourth General Assembly, known as House Bill two hundred forty nine, found in 109 Ohio Laws at page 105, became effective on July 1, 1921.

This law provides for the reorganization of the executive department of the state government and is an administrative code centralizing related executive functions and activities for better administrative care and control.

All duties, rights, liabilities, authority and privileges relating to MINES and MINING, formerly had and exercised under the law by THE INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION OF OHIO, was, by the above mentioned law, conferred upon and imposed in THE DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS to be administered by the Director of Industrial Relations.

This pamphlet contains all the provisions of the General Code of Ohio directly relating to MINES and MINING, their operation, control and management, put into convenient form for the information and guidance of employers, employes and the general public, for whose benefit and observance they have been enacted.

In any section of the law herein given where the phrase "Industrial Commission" or "The Industrial Commission of Ohio," or "Chief Inspector of Mines" is found, the phrase "The Department of Industrial Relations" is to be read, because such department has, by the law first above mentioned, been given the powers and duties before had by such commission.

All the statutes printed in this pamphlet are in full force and effect.

The Department of Industrial Relations,

WILLIAM ROBINETT, Chief, Division of Mines .
