An Independent Newspaper Devoted to Sunshine and Good Cheer. Without Malice and Without a Muzzle LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, NOVEMBER 11, 1910 i State Historical Society ; HTHE INSURANCE carried upon Nebraska lives and property il should be carried in Nebraska companies. For each dollar sent out of Nebraska less than 60 cents returns in the shape of commissions and payment of losses. Forty cents out each dollar remains in the east to be used in "high financing," made familiar by Thomas W. Lawson. This drain upon Nebraska amounts to millions of dollars every year. It should be stopped. How? By insuring Nebraska lives and property in Nebraska Insurance Companies. They are as -safe, as the safest. Their rates are reasonable. They invest in Nebraska securities and not in waterlogged Wall Street stocks; ThW employ Nebraskans. who build homes in Nebraska and help swell the volume - of Ne braska business. The big insurance buildings of the east, with their armies of clerks, could be duplicated in Nebraska if the vast sums spent by Nebraskans for insurance were spent with Nebras ka insurance companies. The money thus kept at home would work day and night for the development of Nebraska resources. Loaned to Nebraska men, the interest would remain in Nebraska. Why continue the policy of building up eastern institutions at our expense? Stop the drain on our resources! Build up home insti tutions! The fact of the matter is, the Big Insurance Men of the east laugh at us while making Big Money from us. We have been such "easy marks" in the past. From now on carrv vour insur ance in Nebraska companies.
