WASHINGTON, Nov. 11 Commissioner
of Corporations James H. Garfield, In an
address at the banquet of the Hardware
association here last night, discussed the
questions of graft In the government and
the commercial and Industrial evils.
"You have heard that graft In the gov
ernment Is rampant," he said. "This must
not be taken lightly. It Is true that there
are things In the federal government that
are wrong, but wnen you compare tnem
with things that are good you will find
them Incomparable. , Things are wrong in
private business affairs, as well as in the
public affairs. . We should not attempt to
apply a remedy before we know what the
disease is. The inquiry conducted by this
bureau into the workings of the corpora

Is the sovereign of all the people and has
right to protect one man against the

Evils on Every Hand.
The speaker stated that the problems cow
are as mighty and Important as ever our
forefathers had to contend with. On every
hand we are confronted with commercial
and Industrial evils. "To attempt to rem
edy them is useless unless the blow be
aimed at their root," he said. ."At present
It is impossible to effect any permanent
cure; only penalties can be Imposed where
wrongs are discovered. If you, my friends,
are to have the advantages of corporate
formation you must submit your affairs to
the sovereign by which your corpora

who you are and with whom they are
dealing. The government must be vested
with the power to deal with corporations

has regarding the national banks, to keep
itself Informed as to what they are doing.

majorltyi even of the liberal party will
not look at the Irish question In the new
Parliament. It therefore behooves tho
Irish loaders and the Irish voters of Great
Britain to keep such an element In the
liberal party to the smallest possible di
mensions. Indeed, It Is everywhere be
lieved that such a possibility makes the at
titude of the Irish Voters to the liberal
party as a whole one for grave considera
tion. Mr. Redmond has made It clear, ap
parently, that neither at the general eleo
tlon, nor after, will the Irish leaders or
the Irish voters condone backsliding.

LIFE INSURANCE AGAIN.
Some of the Hrlsrht Spots.
There has been much discussion the last
few months upon what the press has called
scandals In some of the large eastern life
Insurance companies, and while attention
has been riveted upon the difficulties of
these Institutions the public has almost
grown to believe all are alike, and are In
clined to censure all for the shortcomings
of the few.
In looking over the situation carefully
there seems to be soma companies located
in the weBt that have neither speculated
in Wall street securities nor Invested In
them. All their assets, including both re
serve and surplus, are Invested In first
mortgages on western Improved farms, the
best security In the world, and drawing a
good rate of Interest. One such company
that. certainly exhibits a clean record, as
shown by Its reports, has Its home office
at Lincoln, Neb and conducts Its business
under the name of The Old Line Bankers'
Life of Nebraska. It Is nearly twenty
years old, but has never done much talking
about Itself. It has grown conservatively
and quietly and has made progress each
year along lines that Us policy holders ap
nrove. Practically all of its assets of a
million and a quarter dollars are investea
In first mortgages on the best of farms, and
not a dollar of past due Interest Is shown
In its report. Its earnings last year for Its
policy holders was more than 11 per cent
on Its mean reserve, ine cobi ior new
business written Is less than any of the
leading life insurance companies in the
United States, and Its death loss , per
thousand was less by one-half than
any of them. Unlike many companies or
ganized in recent years on the remains of
some defunct assessment order or company,
it started originally as an old line com
pany, and has no assessment business
weighing It down. Iu surplus slready
earned for Its policy holders Is In amount
equal to 33 per cent of Its entire reserve,
its statement of assets does not show a
single dollar of the many Items like agency
balances, bills receivable, premium notes,
stocks and bonds, real estate, "other as
sets," etc., which make up a considerable
portion of the assets of many companies,
but it consists of money and loans, and
The public will discriminate more and
more In the future between companies, not
as to site, as in the past, but quality, and
the one that can show a clean record, and
ability through conservative management
to pay good dividends, will receive in the
future an Increasing palrunuae from that
great conservative portion of the public
who are not looking for speculation In i
life contract, but for protection and reason
able returns on their Investment.
If the investigation of New York com
panies has done nothing more. It will cause
the western people to wake up to the fact
that, as Illustrated above, they have as
good companies as any In the world, rapa
ble of taking care of all business offered.
