Vrofreaa Had by Nabraak Solons Bills
' ' Pass4 '
! Last Thursday and Friday the
house engaged in an extended debate
in committee of the whole on amend
ments to section 87 of the revenue
bill, which provides for the assess
ment of railroad property by the
state board. As reported in - the bill
originally a return is required from
the railroad companies showing all
manner of details, but the - law does
not indicate to the board how it shall
proceed to use this information in, as
certaining the value of the railroad
property and franchises. ' The fight
came upon the amendment of Cald
well of Clay to tax the railroads upon
their full cash value, which should be
determined by adding together, the
market value of the stocks and bonds.
The fusionists stood solidly by this
amendment But the railroad lobby
raised the cry, "Don't vote with the
pops," and defeated the amendment
by a vote of 30 to 58. The 36 affirm
ative votes Including the 24 democrats
and populists; the 12 republicans who
broke loose from the railroad lobby
being: Nelson, Gilbert, Ten Eyck,
and Mangold of Douglas; Fishback
and Caldwell of Clay; Rouse of Hall,
Meredith of York, Atwood of Seward,
Junkin of Gosper, Jahnel of Wash
ingtonand Perry of Furnas.
Friday the senate passed S. F. 116,
establishing roads to lands not on
the public roads; S. F. 171r reducing
width of public roads; S. F. 129, lien
for stock feed and care.
Up to last Friday, the 46th day of
the session, only 20 bills had passed
both houses, 19 of which have been
approved by Governor Mickey, and
one. S. F. 29. has been vetoed. None
of these law3 are of much importance,
four of them affecting Omaha aione.

period the legislature of 1901 passed

A GOOD PROVISION
A Step In the Right Direction to Make Mu
tual Hall Insurance Companies Safe
for the Insurer
When the legislature several years
ago authorized the organization of
mutual hail insurance companies un
fortunately the law was left in some
respects most unsatisfactory. There
was nothing to prevent the officers' of
the mutual hail insurance companies
from using all the funds collected for
premiums in payment for their sal
aries and other expenses connected
with the business. The result was
that a number of companies were or
ganized by unscrupulous men and the
policy holders received little or no
payments to cover their losses. However,-
there is one notable exception
to the rule The United Mutual Hail
Insurance Association of this city has
been economically and honestly con
ducted. It has. paid its losses prompt
ly and all its members are well satis
fied with their treatment There is
now pending before the present legis
lature House Roll 275, which, if it be
comes a law, will prove effectual in
requiring hail insurance companies to
be honestly conducted in the interest
of the policy holders. It provides that
"all companies organized under the
provisions of this act shall deposit
in some bank or banks 60 per cent of
all .the income from it3 members, or
policy holders, which deposit shall
be drawn from said bank only upon
check or order issued by the proper
officer, or officers of such company;
and such check or order shall desig
nate the name of policy holder for
whose benefit the money is drawn and
shall give the number of his policy.
The officer of such company having
custody of the papers or funds thereof
shall enter into bonds to the state of
Nebraska in . the sum of $50,000 with
some surety company; authorized to do
business in Nebraska; said bond to be
approved and deposited with the audi
tor of public accounts of the state of
Nebraska, conditioned for the faith
ful accounting of the funds of such
company, as provided in this section."
If this bill becomes a law as it
should the policy holders in mutual,
hail insurance companies are insured
at a better rate than how prevails in
old line fire insurance companies. This
law guarantees that at least 60 per
cent of all premiums collected will be
paid back to the policy holders for
losses. The records show that old
line fire insurance companies do not
pay back more than 45 per cent of
tfei,tc?-tal.premIums collected. House
Loll 2,5 is a good bill and should be- -come
