Misrepresentations as to Mutual Insur
ance. Usually, when a mutual company
commences to get in its work prepara
tory to the organization, the agents of
the old line companies will commence
to misrepresent and in fact have lied.
For instance, I will show a cae of
either willful lying or gross ignorance
on the part of an insurance man.
In H. R. 32, at the close of Section 8,
wetindthe following: "Provided, That
any company formed under the provi
sions cf this act may in its by-laws limit
the percentage of the liability of its
members." Of course, all men who are
ou the road, soliciting insurance,
are cognizant that the above is
enacted into law, for his company
was represented last winter to de
feat the mutual insurance bill. But
now these fellows are telling the farm
ers that there is no limit to the liability
of th member of a mutual insurance
company, awl that a member's property
is all sabject to execution in case they
insure in a mutual, and I find some
farmers who will believe their lies.
But such it) life. Our farmers have been
dupe I so much that when they see a
good thing they do not know it.and fur
ther they do not stop to think that the
law allows the stock companies to or
ganize with fM.OOO, and that no com
pany of tttis state puts more than that
amount into the business, but each agent
will talk of the large surplus of his com
pany, but of course will uot tell you that
the policy holders are the fellows who
have put the money into the column of

STORY OF THE WEEK
EXDIXG WEDXESDA Y. Jt'XE 10. AW.
M.UXE LIQUOK LAWS. The Make
legislature at its recent session passed
tew law to aid in the suppression of the
lienor traffic. Under this law, which
has already gone into effect, the evi
dence w hich can be brought against an
accused dealer In liqrcr is made very
broad and sweeping. The simple fact
that liquids have been destroyed by any
connected with the establishments sus
pected, is to be taken as ev idence teat
the liquids were intoxicants and kept
for sale. Persons suspected of keeping
intoxicating liquors may be searched
without the formality of an arrest. The
law leaves the courts no discretion in
the imposition of penalties, which in
clude both fine and imprisonment. A
person proved guilty of selling liquor
must pay a tine of 8100 in addition to
the costs, and be imprisoned sixty days.
Persons bringing liquor into the 6tate,or
transferring it from plaie to place with
the intention of selling it, are liable to
a tine of $700 and one year's imprison
SCHOOL LAND MUDDLE. A big
muddle has come to light in the state
school land sales which will require an
endless amount of work to unravel.
Under the law existing down to 1683
each lease contained a clause requiring
reappraisement every five years; the
appraisers to be selected, one by the
purchaser, one by the state and a third
by these two representatives. In 1SS8
the law was changed to require the ap
praisement to be made by the county
board. Under the new appraisement
the lands were rated higher and lessees
were requited t pay on the higher ba
sis, and of course denied the right to
select one appraiser as was provided by
In a case recently decided the su
preme court holds that the later law is
void as to these old contrails and the
lessees can only be required to pay on
the appraisement in the fixing of which
they were represtnted. So that, in all
cases under the old form of lease the
original method of appraisal must be
followed. The many who paid under
the new law will secure credit for the
excess. Fairmont Signal.
FORMATION OF THE PLAID MILL
TRUST One mill in Alabama, five in
Georgia, twenty-seven in North Caro
lina, one in -South Carolina, and one in
Tennessee, hive formed a stock com
pany for the purpose of concentrating
their business, which comprises 73 per
cent of the entire southern product of
plaid. The feature of the plan is to es
tablish at New York a joint selling
agency for the purpose of preventing
competition in prices; and it is expected
that the advantage of a reduction of 25
per cent in duties, allowed in the reci
procity treaty by Brazil to American
manufacturers, will open a large mar
ket, which this trust aims to control.
COKE REGION BLACKLIST. The
blacklist, adopted by the coke opera
tors in retaliation for the late strike is
so perfect that the region is filling up
with old miners who can get no employ
ment. While the strike continued, the
men were given credit at the stores; but
since it has become apparent that there
is an effective and extensive blacklist,
men out of work are denied credit; and
are being reduced to the condition of
GOVERNOR TILLMAN'S POLI
TICS Governor Tillman of South Car
olina, in an interview with the organ of
the Alliance of that state, opposes the
nomination of Mr. Cleveland because of
his opposition to the free coinage of sil
ver and. his "'sympathy with Wall
street." Governor Tillman also op
poses the sub-treasury scheme in its de
tails, and thinks the people will not sup
port it after it has been properly pre
sented; but if a majority of his party
continues to support it, he will fall in
line. He sees no necessity for the or
ganization of a third party.
ACQUITTAL OFPLENTY HORSES.
The second trial of Plenty Horses,
whose first trial was held a few weeks
ago, occurred at Sioux Falls, S. D. At

on the ground that the homicide of
which be was charged was committed
in time of actual war upon the person
of an enemy engaged in an act cf hos

In the North American Review for
June, Gen. Rush C. Hawkins argues
that brutality and avarice are triumph
ant in American life, and CoL Robert
G. Ingersoll replies.
Gen. Hawkins recalls the dishonest
contraators anl their notorious and
enormous frauds, during the period cf
the civil war. Of the plundering land
grants, resulting in a gift to corrupt
private corporations of a territory
larger than the whole of France, he says
that "only one of the railroads assisted
was a national necessity, and that ought
to have been built, owned, and man
aged by the government." Supple
mentary to the grants he cites the loans
of government credit for the benefit of
a little cabal cf promoters. He points
also to another favorite American in
dustryrailroad wrecking which has
enriched a set of individuals "whose
presence would adorn penal institu
tions." Land and lumber stealing from
the government are additional witnesses
to the triumph of avarice. The star
route steal is another, and stock water
ing another. He refers to the first no
torious act of stock watering as having
been committed by the directors of a
great railroad corporation when. In
180S, tbey doubled the stock in the face
both of their charter and of the geueral
railroad law of the state, and later em
ployed a lobby to legalize their unlaw
ful act. Trusts, "corporations and
contractors' stores," sham buildings,
destruction of game, the brutality of
the slaughter house, the oppression of
the Indian, are also marshalled with
the other proofs of triumphant greed.
The point that General Hawkins en
deavors to establish by his long arrav
of witnesses. Is that these misdeeds are
perpetrated in the open light cf day,
and go on year after year without pro
test from any considerable portion of
the people, and that they indicate as
one of the unwritten mottoes of our
business morals.that "Successful wrong
Gen. Hawkins is a social doctor who
contents himself with a cataloguo of
some of the boils that afflict the body of
society, without undertaking to diag
nose the disease of which they are man
ifestations; but Col. Ingersoll takes up
the congenial task of defending aud
sometimes apotheosizing the boils.
Congress may have been extravagant
in land subsidies to railroads; but the
policy was wise, for it gave to civiliza
tion vast territories that otherwise
would have remained substantially use
less to the world. It is true that some
railroads have been wrecked; but this
was due to competition, in which the
powerful combine against the weak, and
only the strong survive. The star route
defendants were acquitted. The taking
of timber lrom public lands was a
necessity, and to call it stealing is like
saying that the settlers' "cattle stole the
government's grass, and possibly drank
the government's water." Trusts have
been formed, but it is natural for cor
porations to defend themselves; and in
the end trusts may prove a public bene
fit, for, when the large corporations
have taken possession of the little ones,
"it may be that the government will
take possession of them the govern
ment being the largest corporation of
them nil." Etcetera. The superficial
character of Colonel Ingersoll's reply
may be best seen from one plausible
point that it makes. To him, stock wa
tering is an innocent affair. Here, he
says, is a railroad worth $3,000,000; if
represented by one share of stock, that
share would be worth 43,000,000; but if
represented by three million shares,
each would be worth one dollar; there
fore the amount cf stock issuud has
nothing to do with the thing represent
ed by tae stock. This is very true: and
the inference, that to increase ordimin
ish the stock affects no rights, is ob
vious, when facts which Col. Ingersoll
ignores, and to which Gen. Hawkins
refers, are not considered. The act
is expressly condemned by law. Nor
is this law unreasonable. Railroads
are endowed wi.h special privileges, in
consideration of which the law Justly
imposes a limitation on the income they
may be allowed to earn. If this income
be limited to 10 per cent, a road mak
ing fiSOO.OOO a year on a capitalization
ef 13,000,010, would plainly be receiv
ing an Income rf 10 per cent greater
than It is entitled to; but by watering
the stock, so as t) give to It a capitaliza
tion of Su.OOO.COO, stockholder are en
abled to effect a public steal cf the
extra 10 wr cent, while appearing to
keep within the legal limit of profit.
