Kerr York Life Spends 48,000 In On
Year Inducement to Seearo
lervlee of Eqaltable
NEW TORK, Sept. 23 Several sensa
tional Incidents developed at the session of
the executive committee on life Insurance
Investigation today. The first was when
Oeorge W. Perkins, vice-president of the
New York Life Insurance company and a
member of the firm of J. P. Morgan A Co.,
objected to producing the books of his firm
showing a certain transaction of that firm
with the New York IJfe. Mr. Perkins
offered to present a copy of the entry In
question from the books, but Mr. Hughe
demanded the book after several refusal
on the part of Mr. Perkins. The books will
be produced later.
In the course of hi testimony Mr. Per
kins asked concerning the difference in the
statement of "profit from securities" In
the Massachusetts report of the company
and of "net profits from securities" in the
New York report, said:
"When we get national supervision we
won't have these conflicts between the dif
Mr. Perkins testified to a number of tran
sactions In which he represented Morgan &
Co., aa seller and the New York Life In
surance com, any as purchaser.
Blar Awmnees to Agents.
Another sensation was sprung later in
the day when Vice President Thomas A.
Buckner of the New York Life Insurance
company detailed the advances made to
agents and which were carried In the report
to the state superintendent of Insurance
a "commuting renewal premiums." It was
brought out aa a matter of fact that these
advances were loans but were not carried
a such. Mr. Buckner testified that ad
vances were made to agents sometimes as
Inducement to leave other companies and
enter the employ of the New York Life.
A situation of conflict In Buffalo In 1901
betwen the Equitable and the New York
Life was brought out, and in order to get
agent of the Equitable away from that
company, liberal advances and liberal con
tracts were made by the New York Life.
Mr. Buckner testified that these advance
to agents in the Buffalo branch of the New
York Life in 1902 alone exceeded $48,000, -the
amount really earned by these agents.
Later Mr. Buckner acknowledged thl wa
most extravagant and said in 1903 the
amount waa cut down by half and by half
the remaining amount in 1904.
Hashes and Perkins Clash.
While Mr. Perkins was on the stand
during the afternoon there was somewhat
of a clash between the witness and Mr.
Hughes, the first of anything of this na
ture that has occurred since the commit
tee began its setslons. It waa when Mr.
Perkins was testifying to the moneys In
the "Nylie" fund, of which he 1 trus
tee. Mr. Perkins did not want It to ap
pear 'on the records that the agents paid
part of their salaries Into the fund under
contract, unless the words "and bonuses"
appeared. He said to Mr. Hughe that
he (Mr. Hughes) was trying to get away
from something and the counsel hotly re
torted that he was not and If Mr. Perkins
would answer his question much belter
progress would be made with the Investiga
tion, Transfer of Eqnltablo Stock.
Early x in the , day. Henry . . Winthrop
while on the stand presented a statement
Of the transfer of the Equitable at the
time of its change of management. Most
of the transfer Mr. Winthrop was able
to explain, but some he was not. At the
time of these transfer Mr. Winthrop wa
the holder of twenty-five shares. He
thought the actual owner wa James H.
Hyde, a he turned the checks for divl
denda over to Mr. Hyde.
Mr. Winthrop -was again called to the
stand just before adjournment, Mr.' Buck
ner having given way, to explain a trustee
account brought up earlier in the day,
Mr. Winthrop presented a typewritten
tatement of the account and said the
loan would bo paid off In a few day and
the collateral entered In the books of the
company. Before Mr. Buckner retired he
wa asked to produce a statement of the
expenses of the Paris office, with a record
of the real estate held there and the busi
ness that comes under that Jurisdiction.
Mr. Buckner had been questioned most of
the afternoon on the foreign business and
It cost to tha home office. The commit
tee will resume' It session tomorrow.
qolre Account Still Mysterious.
Henry Greaves, a clerk employed by the
Equitable Assurance society, continued his
testimony before the legislative Insurance
Investigating committee today. He gave
further details of the payment of checks to
the Oeorge H. Squire, trustee, account.
Concerning one entry of $40,000 deposited to
the account on July 13, 1901, and the Imme
dlate withdrawal of the sum by draft, Mr.
Greaves said he knew nothing. He did not
know where the money came from nor by
whom it was withdrawn. He could supply
no Information a to the profit of a one
half Interest In a Chicago A Alton syndi
cate credited to the George H. Squire, trus
Oher syndicate profits in 1902 and 1903
deposited with the American Deposit and
Loan company to the credit ot this account
witness wa unable to explain. On May
1, 1901, a new book for these entries was
opened and a balance of $62,770 wks cred
ited. The bank deposit book was. kept by
Thoma D. Jordan, at that time comptroller
of the Equitable. Check for deposit ' to
this account Ml. Greaves aald he deliv
ered to Mr. Jordan.
Hyde Ordered Payment,
Another entry In the George H. Squire,
trustee, account, -under date of May 1
1902. wa the first payment of $42,500 on a
navigation syndicate call by order of James
H. Hyde. Thl money was borrowed from
the Equitable Trust company by James H.
Hyde on May t on the participation cer
tificate. Witness knew nothing of this,
merely making th entries at the direction
of Mr. Squire. Another entry showed a
loan from the Equitable Trust company of
$t,0OA, being the second call on th navi
gation syndicate, and thl wa paid on the
order ot Mr. Hyde. On October 8, 1902, an
other loan of $75,000 waa mad from th
Equitable Trait to cover another call on
the navigation ayndlcate, and January It,
190S, a 10 pr cent call required another
loan of $26.0o0. On July 30. I9u3. a fifth call
demanded $3,000, which wa also loaned by
th Equitable Trust company. These call
were paid on th order of Jame H. Hyde.
Mr. Bqulr drew a check for $30,000 on
April 17. 1904. and another for $7,600 to re
duos the loan from the Equitable Trust
company on account of the Navigation yn
dlcate, but when th dividend cam In thy

Harry Rogers 'Winthrop. financial man
ager of th Equitable Life Assurance ao
clety, was recalled to th stand. He said
the Oeorge ' H. Squire (trustee) accoun

Trust company In h nam' of L. M.
Bailey, 'trustee. Mr. Wintbop said tha
Equitable Trust aonaajr hold Uxe luquil

the loan and that the account will be
taken up In the name of the Equitable
Life Assursnce society. The total sum bor
rowed on-account of the Navigation syndi
cate wss 8C6O.00O, and or. this I7T.500 has
been paid. Mr. Winthrop, In answer to a
question by Mr. Hughes, counsel to the
committee, said that In his opinion all the
money Involved In the transaction wa
money that really belonged to the Equit
able Life Assurance society.
Bfo Record of Hoist Profit.
Mr. Winthrop wse asked about a check
drawn to the order of the society on Au
gust . 1896, for 13,919. which was the
profits in the participation In the St. Louis
' San Francisco syndicate. He said a
careful search failed to disclose that It
haa been recorded In any of the boks of
the society. Expert accountants are still
searching. This was also true of a check
from the Mercantile -Trust conpany for
I21.06S on April SO. 1887. and another for
$72,795 on August 26, iS7.
Taking up the Union Paolflc teorganlta
tlon, Mr. Winthrop said it-ore were a lum
ber of syndicates all reU'lng to the reor
ganisation. From tha Irst on Mr. Win
throp said the Equitable society received
$253,476 In profit.
The next Union Pacific syndicate felted
the society I6S.96S on a parilclnatlan of
$375,000. In another Union Pacific syndicate
the Equitable participated to the amount
of $2,900,000, from which it secured piofit
of $912,825. From 'a fourth Union Pacific
syndicate on a participation of $.W,000,
though the society put u? no money, it re
ceived a profit of $43,475. Anotrer cne,

some Daring CarafYal.
'Standing Room Only" was the lgn' hung
up at the police tation last night. Tester-
day was a record-breaking day at the police
station. By I o'clock this mornlna there
were 110 persons placed under arrest. Their
offenses were of every kind and degree.
There were fugitives from Justice, boys
with bloody noses received at the carnival
grounds, the fsklr with broad-brimmed hat
and the tipsy Individual; women with paint
and powder, women whose skin waa of
ebony hue, sang roistering song to con
sole themselves and pass the time. . An
ominous calm hung over the red light dis
trict from early In the evening. Not
negro face wa to be eeen. At 11 o'clock the
captain declared that there were two more
shines" to be located In town; the rest
were In Jail.
The police are determined to prevent as
many of the petty crimes as possible during
the festivities now In progress, and the
only way to do It Is to arrest every sus
plcious character as soon a seen. The
most dangerous to the visitors are the
women of the downtown districts. Scarcely
a night passes that there are not several
complaints of larceny from the person
there. The colored women rely on the fact
that It Is very difficult to Identify them,
and so become very bold. Last .night there
was not a single case reported, which
speaks well for the effort of the police de
partment. The crusade will be kept up
during the entire carnival and the officers
think they have the situation well in hand.
Reception to Pastor.
The Ladles' Aid society of Trinity Metho
dist Episcopal church gave a reception In
honor of Key. William Oorst, presiding elder
ot tne umana conference, and Key. J. rtan
dolph Smith the Incumbent pastor. The

Fireman Make an Arrest.
George A. Baldwin was arrested at his
home, 813 South Twenty-fourth street, by
Fireman Fred L. Bugbee of engine com-
pany No. 1. Bugbee brought the man to
the nonce station,' where he made the
charge that the man had been In the habit
of abusing his family and that he came
home last evening in a more than usually
Quarrelsome mood. His wife refused him
admission, whereupon he kicked In the
door and struck her. The punishment con
tinued until Baldwin's brother ran over to
the home of Buahee and asked him to ar
rest the man. The man was disposed to
question the authority of the fireman, but
soon thought better of It.

"If we must get out of the state," said
W. A. Fraser, "I am In favor of moving to
Council Bluffs, provided our committee is

apply to fraternal orders. Most f our
officers live here In Omaha and thy lave

twenty-two employes who own their homes.
Some of them have been. In the MTvlce

to give the officers and clerks a rhance to

the light of this belief I nm favorably In
clined towards Council Bluff a the loca
tion for the headquarters. Still, I am
hopeful that we will not have ta -nove.
We must make preparations, though, and
we are doing It."
The session of the sovereign council
probably will last the lemn.nrier cf the

including a proposition to bond local c fl

ti of three for report.
The committee was nppolnted In the aft
ernoon. It consist of W. A. rn-r tt
Pallas. Tex.; J. E. Flttgerald of Kansas
City and C. E. Farmer of Mcnnt Carroll,
III. The committee will make t investiga
tions and report before the .vljiurnment
of the council.
Another important matter brought up
was the question ss to wh-lir It art' ls
able for the order to ro Into Mexico, rum
which ; country petltlns have coinc for
charters. This was retcrr-vl. lo a commit
Woodmen Circle Involved.
If the Woodmen decide to leave Omaha
It means'- t'.iat the Woodmen Circle, the
women's auxiliary, will leave also. The
latter has a reserve fund of $200,om and
not long ngo decided to build a headquar
ters building here to cost at least $Oiio.
Of ' course, th removal of head offices
would mean Incorporation In another state
and an entire loss to Omaha and Nebraska
of the revenue, depositories, head officers,
clerks, employes snd the money spent for
printing and other things necessary" to
carry on the business of the Institution.
Said Mr. Fltxgerald of Kansas City, who
Is a member of the council and on the
"The action of the council cannot be
told In advance. While the orders from
the sovereign camp were to remove head
offices from Omaha If the state authorities
Insisted upon taxing the reserve fund, yet
the fact that the case Is now before the
supreme court, and the supreme court Is
the final authority, which has not spoken,
may defer decisive action. All I can say
Is that the council Is disposed to be fair
and to act without prejudice."
