We clip the following from the State
Journal of the 14th inst.: '
"It is hinted now and then that a lively
insurance lobby will desceud upou the
capikil in Jaiiuary to secure if possible
tue repeal ot the valued policy law.
This is not a new feature in Lincoln
during the legislative year. Four years
ago this name lobby tried to keep the
mutual law from being passed, but it
Two years ago this' same value in
policy law was threatened, but after
looking the ground over it was decided
to postpone that part for the time being.
Now if this kid-gloved gentry think
that b 'caune the majority of both houses
is Jlepnblican they can handle them in
the interest of all monopolies, they are
surely mistaken, as several Iiepubliean
members have an education in mutual
insurance, and any one who lias made a
study' of insurance subjects will without
doubt do valiant work in the interest of
the whole people instead of for the insur
And further, the legislature will be
called upon to pass a law that will allow
people who live in town to organize mu
tual companies in which to insure their
their property and thus save many thou
sands of dollars that now go to pay such
lobbyists for working against the inter
est of the people, to say nothing of the
largo salaries aud fees paid to officers
and employes, and dividends paid, many
of them amounting to several hundred
per cent of the amount of cash invested
by the stockholders. ISelow we give copy
of a bill to be introduced in the coming
legislature. We see some defects, but
will ask for criticism. We want to get a
bill ready and have the ideas of several
men, but would like to hear from more.
All laws should be short and concise.
How does this suit you? Please let me
hear from all at once:
Bait enacted, etc.:
Suction 1. That any number of per
sons may organize and incorporate a
mutual insurance company, indemnify
each other against damage by fire, light
ning, cycloue, tornado, windstorms, or
Sec. 2. Such companies shall file ar
ticles of incorporation with the auditor
of public accounts, and also make an
nual statements to him.
Sko. 3. The auditor, upon examina
tion of such articles of incorporation, if
in compliance with the laws of Nebraska,
shall issue to such company a certificate
of authority to do business.
Sec. 4. The fees to the auditor shall
be for examination of articles of incor
poration and issuing certificate of au
thority, ten dollars. For examining re
port and issuing certificate of authority
to the company, one dollar. For issuing
agents' certificates, twenty-five cents.
Timely and to the Point
Editor Wealth Makers:
Xur article last week entitled: "Not
a Demo-pop Governor" was timely and
to the point. It is time for us to inquire
where we are. We are on record away
from home as fusionists, It is to be
feared.that some of our nominees for
office went further than the record would
warrant them in committing the party
to such a course, and it is to be feared
that they got some very unwwe counsel
in this connection from Senator Allen, to
whom they very naturally looked for
guidance, and it may be that he led them
into it without their asking hiui for coun
sol. In any event it is time that we
counselled together in the hope of secur.
ing light enough and sense enough to
avoid any more of that kind of uonsense
I do not like to give it any harder name;
because when its most ardeut votaries
look over the late battlefield it ought to
make them sick enough. When the chair
man of our state central committee ad
vised some of our people to vote for the
other fellows' nominees, we thought it a
new and peculiar deal; but were some
what relieved when he announced that
the bright idea wasevolved.afterconeulta
tiou with Senator Allen. '
And, while this inquiry is progressing,
we would like to ask how the Populist
party became sponsors at the baptism o
that hybrid offspring, the Wilson-Gorman
edition of the McKinley Bill minus
eleven per cent and not enough revenue
without taxing sugar? And how many
of our people heard Senator AHca point
with apparent pride to this child of Pop
ulist production? Yes, it is about time
we took some note as to where we are.
No, we did not get lost in the whirl; but
we got badly broken up. Men and breth
ren, we must have better leadership, or
we must go it alone. Speak up!
