legislature and that the Investigation had
assumed the proportions of an Inquisition.
He waa asked by Senator Armstrong how
he would conduct the Investigation and told
that If he had better methods the commit
tee would be glad to know of It. Mr. Mc
Curdy thought that putting a witness under
oath made him feel he was on the rack. He
said his answers were published in a dis
torted form, that appeared like an attempt
to ruin him.
Redaction of Dividends.
After taking up the question of the reduc
tion of dividends Mr. Hughes read a long
list of, policy numbers, with the amounts
of the face of the policy, what had been
paid in and the dividends received by the
policyholders. Asked What he had to say to
these Mr. McCurdy said:, "Figures don't
He, but liars can figure." He then hastily
explained that he meant that facetiously
and that he would be glad to verify the
figures. The only explanation for a specific
Instance of a reduction of dividends Mr.
McCurdy gave was that he supposed the
policyholder had a reduced rate policy.
The legal expense', were, again referred to
and a number of vouchers for the payment
of various sums were read. It waa brought
out that William Barnes, sr., of Albany
had appeared before the committee In Al
bany, last winter and had received $1,000
from the New York Life Insurance com
pany. Later I) was brought out In a letter
to Mr. MoCurdy from 'William Barnes,' Jr.,

Former Agent Bribed.
A voucher for $10,000, under date of May
22, 1902, for a first payment on a contract
of that date to Thomas 11. Bowles, was
brought up. Witness said Bowles was an
agent at one time. The money was In part
settlement of a suit Bowles brought against
the company for claims after his removal
to Milwaukee. Bowles organised a cam
paign of policyholders against the company
and the company settled the suit for $30,00).
The witness said Bowles was removed for
"insubordination," which consisted of op
posing the changing of his general agency
to a salaried agency and transferring his
agency business to the books of the com
pany. Mr. Bowles had addressed a letter
to the trustees denouncing the president.
Mr. McCurdy could not say whether he had
a ccpy of that letter. He did not think it
was now on Hie In his office' and he would
not know where to find a copy,
Mr. Hughes handed to the witness a
voluminous package and asked If ho recog
nized it as a copy of Mr. Bowles' com
munication, which he did. Tbe Bowles
letter, extracu from which were read,
charged extravagance In the management
of the company, neglect of all Sound princi
ples In Inviting business, that It was con
sumed with the ambition to write new busi
ness, wrote fictitious business and employed
incompetent men because they were rela
tives of high officials.
HcCardy Defends HI Son.
"The trustees referred the matter to the
president with power," witness testified. He
added that the board had not read the let
tor. Witness read only sufficient of it to
see what it was and then removed Bowlos.
He testified that Mr. Bowles had been a
general agent In the south and west and he
was removed for "throwing mud" when his
time came to have his business changed
j according to the policy of the company
irom a general agency to a company
agency. To the charge in the Bowles let
ter that President McCurdy provided fat
offices for his family, witness replied In a
lengthy statement as to how his son, Rob
ert II. McCurdy, became the general man
ager. Witness detailed the education Ms
son had received to adapt him to take up
the foreign business, and said above all he
was loyal to the company. "I know of no
other man's sou In this city or anywhere
else," he continued, "who could have filled
that position aa the man I appointed to It,"
Witness "assumed all the Bowles charges
were a lie," and especially the charge that
a great deal of the company's business had
been given away.
Settles with Bowles.
On the charge that rebates were made,
witness said he was aware of a constant at
tempt on the part' of Individuals that are
solicited for big policies to get the agent to
divide his premium, and there la a tempta
tion for the agent to "take half a loaf
rather than none." He said the Bowles let
ter was Insurrectionary and that It was
cause enough for any general agent to be
removed. He said the tables and figures
that Mr. Bowles has been at great trouble
to compile from company records were
"part of his scheme to make trouble." Wit
ness' memory could not be. refreshed as to
any policyholder's movement, and Mr.
Hughes abruptly asked:
"Well, how did you settle his eultT"

unpleasant results, you'd rather treat at

witness said that the agitation went with

which he said:

Testimony, to Show that 'Woman Was
In Normal Condition When Con
tract W as Made with Heyl.
MILWAUKEE, Oct. 17. Testimony bear
ing upon the agreement by which Mrs.
Lttette Schandeln gave Jacob Heyl, her
son-in-law, one-half of the Increment of
the vast rfchandeln estate was Introduced in
the Schandeln will contest before Judge
Carpenter today. The evidence Is of Im
portance because of the contetentlons made
by the contestants and the special adminis
trators In the circuit court to compel resti
tution of $1,4GO,000 paid and claimed by Heyl
by virtue of the alleged agreement.
The agreement was made about January
1, 1896, according to Heyl, who prior to that
time had worked for Mrs. Schandeln as
manager of her estate. It was put Into
writing In 1903, a firm of attorneys In Buf
falo taking part in the drawing up of the
agreement. On the suit to recover money
on the alleged agreement stress Is placed
upon the contention that Mrs. Schandeln
was not a business woman, that she en
trusted her affairs to Heyl and that she de
cided upon the figures given by him when
the basis of the division was fixed. This
was answered by Heyl and his attorneys,
who alleged that a disinterested person,
Charles W. Suetterle, was called to ex
amine the booUs about the time the agree
ment was made In writing.
Mr. Suetterle testified today admitting
that he Is not an expert bookkeeper. Mr.
Suetterle testified that he gathered from
the books that the credit from Emll Schan
deln, sr., was $1,800,000 and that the trial
balance In 103 was $6,000,000.' On cross-examination
Mr, Suetterle admitted that he
obtained but little more Information from
the books. Mt, Suetterle testified also that
Mrs. Schandeln retained her physical and
mental vigor and ruled her own home. Tea
ttmony to this same effect was given by
William T. Durand.
Miss Johnson, a trained nurse, who was
In the employ of Mrs. Schandeln at one
time, was on the stand this afternoon. She
stated the only disagreement between Mrs.
Schandeln and her daughter, Mrs. Frank,
was when tha latter moved Into her
mother's home without her mother's per
mission. She said that Dr, Frank had used
the Schandeln wine cellar withoutpermls
slon. She also testified that Mrs. Schandeln
had had trouble with Mrs. Stella Schandeln,
the wife of her son Emll, as the result of
which she had ordered her excluded from
the home. The witness was asked many
questions concerning Mrs. Schandain's phy
sical condition and testified that she had
witnessed no change In her appearance. In
her mental power or her will power during
the latter years of her acquaintance with

Dr. Halbert aald that he had been
booked for an address or paper on "Pneu

pretending to give a paper on that theme,
as tha best he could essay to do would
be to give merely an informal talk on the
subject as a prelude to the papers of Dr.
Cobb and Dr. Kahlke. He aald:

upon the subject of pneumonia in children.

"The Surgical Phases of Pneumonia" was
tha theme of the address of C. E. Kahlke.
M. D., of Chicago. His address treated
nrinclDally of surgical cases that oama

; mce, and the materials used. He said in

.... the vreat essential Is careful
watching and dressing. Lung expansions
are also to be very carefully watched.
Following the addresses th evening was
given over to a general discussion, partic
ularly as relating to the Inhalation of oxy-
and tha use of cardiac stimulants. It
was generally agreed that the great harm
resulting from the use of stimulants Is that
they are used before they were needed. Dr.
Halbert was of the opinion that ther Is no
safer average remedy than strychnine. He
said further that the chief thing to con
sider is the careful diagnosis of cases. He
also advised that temperatures should be
reduced In the rooms of pneumonic patient.
The use of cold water drinking and saline
solutions would bring help to such patients.
Alcoholic stimulants should only be used as
a last resort.
The general consensus of opinion was that
pneumonia is not the hopeless disease It was
once thought to be, and that homeopathic
remedies . were gradually conquering th

Frank Daniels has so thoroughly Identl-
fled himself with sublimated nonsense that
he would not feel at home with anything
that called for a serious effort. He was
'born to be funny, and funny he Is. He
tes the most trivial and unimportant
stuff, matter so absurd that one less gifted
than himself would simply appear ridicu-
lous In the effort, and makes It ludicrous i
and laughable. Only one thing he has
ever done is more absurd that his Sergeant
Brue, and that Is the speech he makes at
the call he Invariably gets at' the end of
the second act. This Is in many ways the .
most laughable feature of the perform-
ance, and is so received. All the way
through the three acts he Is Frank Daniels
at his best. His good nature, his apparent
stupidity, his pusillanimity, and the occa-
slonal gleam of common sense that pene-
trates the ml.t of hi almost Irtlnlle. failure
to understand anything, combine to make
his policeman one of the best of a long
