We were in attendance at the Iowa
mutual insurance association last month
and had a very pleasant visit, to say
nothing of the instruction, received.
Various subjects were discussed. Re
ports of companies for the rear and
since organization some have no assess
raents others have had a hard time of it
but the average is wtiout as usual i. e., a
little less than f 2.00 per $1000 an aver
age for five years of les than $10.00 or
one half the price for insurance in a
ntock company. The secretary of the
state hail insurance company was there
and reported that the losses this year
would amount to about $250,000. Thev
have $11 .000,000 insured in hail com
panies. 1 think that if we can get a
favorable la w this winter we will organ
ize a company on the Iowa plan and pro
ceed to do business next spring if there
is any show for a crop. The secretary
of the State Cyclone company also made
his report. They now have 'over $44,
000,000 insurance. Losnes paid $16,
2G3.34. Secretary of Town, Mutual
(dwelling) reported that his company
was 0. K. and proved his assertion by
what they had done in the last three
years. City residence property detached
is the best and safest property to insure.
Secretary of Business Block Mutual; re
ported that his company was bueyear
old and was prorperous.
Now if the incoming legislature will
give us a good law our people will be
able to save thousands of dollars per
year. Among the questions discussed
was the utility of lightning rods and
spontaneous combustion. The former
was considered of great use. It was
considered that the best and cheapest
rod would be galvanized hog fence wire
nailed down to the roofaud side of the
house and fastened to the pump pipe
wrapped several times around it. (No
rod peddler need apply.) The latter
was considered. Many instances were
given where clover hayfwns set afire
spontaneously, but it usually was fired
from that part of the haymow that was
put in damp either from dew or was not
thoroughly cored and always where it
was tightly pneked under the hay fork
usually. The following resolution was
passed, viz:
Resolved, that it is the sense of this
association that hay, and especially
clover, millet and shreded com fodder
should not be stored damp or in sheds
or barns to the depth of over 12 feet.
There w?r many other questions dis.
cussed all of which would be of interest
to any mutual insurance man. The mu
tuals in Iowa considers that it pays to
send their officers to this meeting and
cav their expense while there because
they Ret ne and advanced ideas at each
meeting and wheu they go home they
put into practice what they can.
Now if these companies 20 and 25
' years old, consider it a good investment
to send their officers to a meeting of this
kind would it not pay the new companies
of Nebraska to get together and discuss
mutu vl subjects? v
I hope everyone who would like to
have a subitct discussed at our next
meeting, which is on January 20, 1897,
at the Ideal hotel, Lincoln, Nebraska,
10 o'clock a. in., would put it on a
postal card or letter and send it to me
at ouce. It makeB no difference whether
you are here or not if your query has
any merit and pertains t6 insurance
matters, it will be discussed and report
ed in these columns. Who will be the
If you are interested in any particular
subject, and can't be here, please send a
paper. We want to get up a good pro
gram and print it in these columns on
Jaduary 7, 1897, will you do your part.
If vou intend to be nere ana want to
discuss any subject, please write it to me
at once bo that others may have a little
time to think on the subject. We con
template a good ueeting as there are
several members of the legislature who
are merabtrs of muuals and no donbt
will attend. We have made arrange
ments with the Ideal hotel for a dollar a
day rate.
We will try to make this department
interesting during the legislature and
have made arrangements to send it to
mutual men from January 1, to April,
for 20 cents.
If any one gets an extra copy please
hand it to some one who does not take
it and ask him to subscribe.

High Duties on Luxuries and None t
all on What tba Poor Cocsume
As a great deal has been said and writ
ten about what Senator Peffer believed
on the tariff question, he took occasion
last week to state them in the Advocate
as follows:
As was promised last week in response
to an inquiring reader, we now give a
brief statement of Senator Peffer's views
concerning the tariff.
First He never was in favor of high-'
duties on any articles except luxuries, as
his writings in t he Kansas Farmer abun
dantly testify.
Second He has long favored free
sugar, free salt, free lumber and free
coal. This fact, also, appears in the col
umns of the Kansas Farmer, extending
as far back aa ten years ago or longer.
Third He would lay high duties on all
articles of luxury such as fine dress
goods, fine laces, embroidery, etc., costly
carpets, fancy fowling pieces, wines,
liquors, cigars, high-grade cutlery,
and all articles used only by the rich and
fastidious; and . he would admit free of
duty all articles of every day use among
the poorer classes of our people, such as
sugar, low-gradeclothing,common shoes
heavy gloves, cheap hats, agricultural
implements, common furniture, rough
lumber, fence wire, nails, etc. r
Fourth If the gold standard is to be
permanently established he would favor
free trade absolute in all classes of arti
cles except such as are used only by the
wealthy and the profligate.
Cbamring conditions have materially
modified the senator's opinions on the
tariff question.' . He believes in good
wages and fair profits on the products
of labor; and, until the effects of the gold
standard policy began to show tbem-J
selves in falling prices, increasing immi
gration and rapid development of agri
culture in other lands, he had believed in
the Jackson theory of protectionthe
laying of revenue duties so adjusted as
to encourage domestic industries And
protect them, as fur as such revenue leg
islation could aguinst foreign competi
tors. ' ' ''
But this sharp competition . that our
fanners now have to meet in foreign
markets and the deadly .rivalry of the
foreign laborer in onrown country, have
put a new face on things and have
brought new questions to the front. v
The farmers' uecessary isolation makes
them the prey of speculators and the
servants of organized capital. They
now need the aid of friendly legislation,
and a tariff lr.w that does them no good
ought not to exist. They have to com
pete in a free trade market with pro
ducts of cheaploreigu labor; the home
price of all they have to sell is regulated
by the price of what they sell abroad;
hence they must be permitted to pur
chase their supplies at free trade prices,
or tbey cannot hold their own.
And to talk about protecting the
American laborer while admitting his
foreign rival freely into the country and
employing him in our shops, factories
and mines side by side with our own peo
ple, is absurd.
It is for these reasons that Senator
Peffer favors free trade in all articles of
every-day use among farmers and work
ing peoule generally. For revenue--he
would Siibxtitutea graduated tax on
large landed esta es and on incomes. If
the rich people are to rule the country,
let tbem pay the taxes.
