After an absence of three week I again
through thin media m make all insurance
men a bow. I bar been in DesMoiuesto
attend a meeting of .Mutual Insurance
men.. About eiirhtr were present. I
think that do one could attend such a
meeting without reaping benefit.
I will give a few of the many topics dis
cussed, auy one of them would seem to
pay an Insurance roan forhisattondance.
How to advocate Mutual Insurance in
Co-operation of companies.
Rules concerning ateam power, gaso
line nKiiiuiuK roas, care 01 matcnes.
Policies of mutual companies as to col
How can we best avoid delinauents.
Equitable rules for livestock insurance,
ana many otner important subjects.
And last but not least wasthequestion
oox. ine answers Dy the Hon. j. V,
Baker were appreciated by all present.
In fact the whole meeting was a school
to me, commencing Tuesday forenoon and
closing Friday evening. How 1 wished
for a delegate from each couuty in Ne
braska to be present.
We w ill make a call for a like meeting
looeneia Here in Lincoln in January

ies wouia meet ana compare notes it
would prove to be a beneflt.
fourteen years ago a few delegates
from local companies met in DesMoines
and annual meetings bave been held since
tnen. Aside irom the benefits derived by
forming an advisory association of com-
pauies, tbey nave organized a state Cv

This year the company has paid over

ment is oniy ten cents per f 100.
they organized a Hail company two
years ago. The first year they paid all
losses with three eonte por acrj. This
year they bave losses amounting to
about $30,000, which cost the members
less than four ceuts per acre.
Two years ago these same farmers or
ganized a company to Insure citv and
town dwelling houHes. The first year the
totui loss was but 19 and this year it
Has been f 175. Total in nearly two
years $104. The company had on the
S40th of last month $1,648,898 worth of
projierty insured, and no Uoubt they will
reach the $2,000,000 beforeJun. 1,1895.
This company charges a small contin
gent fee, and yet they have $2,600 on
The old line companies said two years
ago that the farmers had enough to do
to attend to their own business, but they
ooucluded that as they had made a suc
cess of farm business they would help
their town friends in protecting their
Little did those few men who met
fourteen years ago think that they were
laying the corner stone of the wonder of
the insurance world, i. e., a school by
which men would be taught how to save
millions anuually. v
Great praiso should be given them by
all secretaries of Nebraska companies, as
nearly all uur education came either di
rectly or indirectly from them.
There is no reason why we should not
do as well in less time, because the lesson
has been learned. All we have to do is
to follow the advice of the Iowa boys.
The first thing to do is to get together
and get acquainted.
The insurance people in Iowa have an
official organ, the Farmers Institute, a
monthly paper. It is mainly devoted to
institute work. I has a "bead work"
department worth several times the
price of the paper to any farmer or house
wife during theyear. Other departments
will pay anyone to read.
Bnt of course the insurance department
is the part in which we are moBt interest
ed. I will say that no one interested in
Mutual Insurance can afford to be with
out it. ':,
Thk Wealth Makers will soon have
clubbing rate with the Institute, of which
all should take advantage.
Last spring I tried to get a Mutual In
surance paper on its feet. Many sub
scribed and paid their money, but so far
I have been unable to get it through the
mail as second clans matter. If agreeable
to thow who paid for the Mutual Insur
ance News, I will send them the Institute
for a year. Please let me hear from yon
at once. The price of the Institute is 50
cents per annum.

Editor Wealth Makers: ' '
Everything bids fair to have a good
business meeting at Kearney Dec. 19th.
The secretary of the State Irrigation
committee writes that the one fare tickets
will probably be good from the 17th to
Alonzo Wardall, the National Guardian
of the Aid Degree, writes that he expects
to be with us and do all he can to make
our meeting a success, also Prof. Jones
and W. F. Wright, and several others
who will if they can, and can if they will,
make a very interesting session. De
mands for articles of co-oeration for
stores and elevators are coming in, and
our members say that they wish to edu
cate themselves on these Hues so as to be
able with the first good crop to start to
exchange their own products.
I am sorry that you think you can not
be with us and hope that you may un
expectedly be able to be there a short
time at least.
Nearly all correspondents seem to feel
the necessity of reviving our order and of
making it a financial benefit to all mem
If enough such business delegates are
sent the meeting cannot fail to be of
great value. Hoping this may be the
case, I am yours tor industrial freedom.

FROM THE 8TATK PRESS
Durinir the past twenty-seven vears the
people of the United States h ave everv
uay.inciuaing Sundays, paid f 182,477.7a
on government bonds and the bonded
indebtedness is now increasing at the
rate of $ 150,000,000 annually. Is it
not about time to call a halt on these
bond issues? Sutton Register.
A bond issued for buvinir irold when
gold can be drawn outof the treasury on
demand is a most ingenious device to
enable the taxpayers of the country to
pay interest on tlieirown money. Finan-

Why Favor Bankers Only?
Now, if the government shall go into
the business of guaranteeing the notes of
banking corporations, it should, on sub
stantially similar terms, guar an tee or in
dorse the notes of all. Economically
land is not wealth, but it is one of the
two factors which, when united, result in
the production of wealth. But let land
be regarded as wealth, because under the
existing system of ownership it practi
cally is such. If land be wealth.
then laud in use, or which is used to
create more wealth, is capital. Theagri
culturist's farm with all the machinery
and improvements upon it is therefore
capital. This established, and assuming
that the farmer's land and machinery are
paid for and unincumbered, why shouldn't
the government issue notes to him up to
the amount of one-half his capital, con
ditioned upon his giving it a first lieu
upon the property and depositing with it
6 per ctnt. of the amount of the notes to
Insure the latter s redemption? When
the government's security would be iust
as good in one case as in the other, why
should it bestow upon the banker a favor
it denies to the farmer? And why, on
similar terms, should not the manufac
turer and miner also receivegoverninent
indorsed notes? Dubuque Telegram.
