John Dale of the Aetna Life: "For lefclti
mate life underwriting the prospect was
never brighter. The searching Investiga
tion of the methods and practices of several
of the Urge life insurance companies by
what is known as tho Armstrong committee
and the wide publicity of their findings
will not only result In placing the said
conaanlcs In a more favorable light before
the insuring public, but the principle of life
insurance will hereafter be better under
stood and appreciated as a result of said
Investigation. No one questions the solv
ency of those companies, no Intelligent
policy holder will think of lapsing his policy,
rnd If this be true of the companies In
vestigated, then surely the score or more
of companies against whom no breadth of
suspicion has rested notwithstanding the
whole business has been in the limelight
for moaths will continue to do business as
before with this advantage an enlightened
The assembling of the legislatures of the
several states will doubtless result In the
enactment of laws controlling the com
panies and placing additional safeguards
around this business that touches the most
sacred Interests of a majority of American
homes. No company honestly and .Intelli
gently managed need fear the fullest In
vestigation, and let us hope that life In
surance companies whereever located, east
or west, will continue to conserve the sacred
Interests Intrusted to their care and ever
prove worthy the confidence reposed In

department of the R. G. Peters company.
said: "We heard considerable about the
union and there Is a great deal to all this
talk. Every poor company is a nonunion
company, yet many good companies are
without the union. Besides these reliable
companies, there are many others, stock,
mutual and Lloyds competing for business
upon any basis they can secure It. As they
bear no share of the expense Incurred by
the" union companies for classification, sur
veys. Inspections, ratings and other mat
ters essential to the proper conduct of the
business, they nevertheless derive many of
the benefits as do the union company. As
they share none of this cost, they are In a
position to sell and do sell their policies at
less cost, and Induce many people to be
lieve they are the cause of keeping down
the Insurance rates. Instead of this being
true, If the costs of classification, surveys.
Inspections and ratings were shared equally
by all companies, the rates would be less
than they now are."
Oerdon W. Noble, general agent. New
England Mutual. Life Insurance company.
"Life Insurance Is as necessary as ever,
mora necessary In fact. The best asset a
man can leave his family Is a policy In a
good company. ,
"The present revelation! and scandals In
New York may deter aome men from
making this provision, but this should not
be tha result. Tha real question for the
prospective buyer la now and should have
been In the past.,
' 'Does the company operate under wise
and wholesomelawsT'
v 'Has It throughout Its history shown a
disposition to comply with those laws
fully and without evaslonT'
" 'Do the results to patrons Indicate man

other words has this Institution character?'
"A company may present a bewildering
array of figures, It may have as directors
men known the world over, and It may
offer a policy with so many 'features' that
there is no room for 'hair,' and still be aa
'sounding brass and tinkling cymbal." Mere
nretenses will no longer satisfy. The
worthy companies (and there are many)
will get more business an better busl
ness than ever. They fear no legislation

business has expanded so wonderfully that
It was not surprising that evils crept In,
Now, companies must line up for In
spection. Some will pass the most careful
Inspection, some must brace, the cripples
must retire and a few new recruits may be
received from the hord of new companies
not coming forward. When the sifting
process Is over, I think that the real life
companies will occupy higher position In
the estimation of the peopleMhan ever.
Alfred C. Kennedy: "The many new build

press In business during the present year.
Right here It may be well to offer a Utile
advice to the man who has Insurance to

In event, of loss you want the best. Look
up the companies you Intend placing your

thing that the policy holders take a greater
Interest In Insurance and the natural re
suit Is patronage of the home companies,
where they have voice and Influence In the
conduct of the business. I can only speak
from my personal experience In the office
and In the field, but would say that the life

J. R. Wells, assistant manager bondln
department. Btennan, Love Co.: "Th

to Increase steadily In Omaha an
throughout the state, the practice of usin

P. F. Zlmmer. state agent of the United
Mutuel Hail Insurance association of Lin
coin, says: "Growing crops to the farmer
are what stocks of merchandise on the
shelf are to a merchant; they are his
stork la trade, which he must turn Into
profits In order to meet his obligations,
and, while the merchant stands about ten
chances In a thoussnd of losing his mer
chandise by fire, the records show that
the farmer stands about forty chances of
losing his growing crops, by hall. The
United" Mutual Hall Insurance association
of Lincoln has during the past seven years
sustained losses to the amount of $37 per
$1,000. of Insurance carried. This Is cer
tainly the largest risk nf any class of In
surance carried In Nebraska, and every
farmer depending on his growing crops to
meet his obligations should carry hail in
surance. The losses during the season of
1906 were heavier than tn any previous
year on record, It being about $50 per $1,000
of Insurance carried."
If given the opportunity of talking to all
Omaha people who carry fire. Insurance. C.
W. Hicks, secretary of the German Mu
tual Fire Insurance company, would say:
"We have not a word to say against
eastern companies; they are good; but, be
fore you patronise them, ought you not
first to give the home companies what
they can take care of? Other cities are
doing this; why not Omaha? Not long
since a city solicitor of one of our home
companies 'called on one of our prominent
retail merchants and asked him for a
policy. The merchant said: 'No, I don't
want a policy in any home company.'
Stop and think of It! This Yuan Is no
doubt a member of the Commercial club
and Is shouting "Patronise home Instltu-
lons; help build up Omaha." Is this right?
this Just? Is this the way to build no
Omaha? It takes, united effort to build up
targe city. It should be the pride of
,-ery well thinking citizen to patronize
11 worthy home Institutions. All of these
ome fire Insurance companies are worthy
Institutions. They renreseat capital, they
represent labor, they patronize our mer
chants, they patronize our banks, their
money Is all kept In Omaha and Ne
braska. Being Omaha companies. In the
event of fire, they are on the ground
quickly and take pride in giving honest

"The managers and employes of all these

ever ready to help all worthy home lnstl-

D. M. Martin of Harris. Martin Co.:
The protection afforded the general pub
lic by Insurance companies Is multiform.
One never knows what Is going to happen,
and he ought to be prepared for any kind
of a loss. 8o there are many kinds of In
surance to meet the needs of the many.
Here are a few kinds of Insurance which
can be secured at home by Omaha people:
Fire, life, safe, rent, theft, credit, patent.

ler, lightning, plate glass, transportation,

ration ha sard Is reduced to the minimum,
on account of our wide streets. Tho
situation is Improving, and I do not look
forward to any Increase In fire rates here.
Then there Is a tendency to take out long
term Insurance up to the five years Jrmlt.
instead of a few years ago of taking out
one and three year polices. The rate Is
decreased proportionately by the long term
and the Increasing percentage of the in
surance taken out."
C. L. Smith, city manager Nebraska Mer
cantile Mutual -Insurance company:
"We are writing a third more In
surance than last years, and the
outlook Is very encoiv-aglng. There
have been fewer fire losses and our patrons
are carrying from 40 to 50 per cent more
insurance than formerly. Neighborhood
confidence Is also being materially In
creased. I mean by that that Insurance
buyers are having more confidence In their
adjacent neighbors, and while hls may
hnfve a tendency to diminish the amount of
Insurance because of the decreasing liabil
ity from fire through the oare and caution
of these neighbors, there Is not a noticeable
diminution In the general amount of buol
ness done. Merchants are Increasing their
lines of stock, and hence there occurs a
corresponding Increase tn the purchaaeof
Insurance. I have not noticed any partic
ular tendency to Increase the life of the
policy, even though Insurance Is given at a
less rate for a long term. Our company
Is a home concern and we feel much en
couraged1 by the steady Increase of pat
ronage given us."
l"f. 8. Curtis, western agent of the Hart
ford Steam Boiler Insurance company:
"Steam boiler Insurance In the United
States dates back to 1866,' the Idea having
originated In England some years before,
The Hartford company was the first one,
and It was organized in 1866 -at Hartford,
Conn. It started In as small way, but soon
its business spread to every section of the
country where boilers were used to any
extent, and now It writes insurance In every
city In the United States. The business
Is handled from general agencies, as Is the
case with fire insurance, and there are
branches In all the principal cities.
'There are now about eight concerns of
like nature, which do business all over
the country, and several more who handle
boiler Insurance in a local way. One peculi
arity of boiler Insurance, as contrasted
with fire. Is that none of the European
companies work in this country, and none
of tha American firms work across the
"The principal feature, and In fact the
strong point of boiler Insurance, Is the
fact that boilers are Inspected every four
months. It la deemed better to pay out
money for inspection than for losses by
explosion, and It is true that only 10 per
cent of the premluma received go to pay
J. B. Conylngham, secretary of the Re-
tall Merchants' Mutual Insurance com
pany: "The spirit of the times points to
organisation In all things, and it has
breathed op the retail merchants along
with men of other crafts and business.
They realise that fire Insurance, which is
necessary, Is an element of expense which
can be curtailed by a pooling of mutual
Interests, and so they organize mutual In
surance companies, which reduces their
cost of protection, and at tha same time
affords them better protection. Nebraska
has eight village and city mutuals, with
out assessments, carrying over $15,000,000 In
risks on limited liability policies, and 166
farmers' assessment mutuals, carrying up
wards of 130,000,000 l$n risks.
A Boston insurance expert says a com
pany Is on an absolutely safe basis If Its
annual Income equals In amount the face
of four average policies. The Nebraska
laws, which are the best In the work as
regards mutual Insurance, make any other
condition absolutely .out of the question."
Irving G. Barlght. supreme president.
Royal Achates: JThe principal question
now bothering the home fraternal Insur-
nee companies Is that of taxation of the
reserve funds. However, fraternal Insur
ance was never In better shape than It is
at this time. We. are all profiting by .past
experiences. With most of the fraternal
the sick and accident benefits have been
weeded out and the companies are on a
much better basis. With the elimination
of the special benefits and adhering to the
straight Insurance feature a fair rate for
Insurance contracts Is obtained and the
companies are better able to take cafe of
the risks. I look for a great progress In
fraternal Insurance for the comirig two
years than ever before. Where a few
years ago there was little or no reserve
funds In many of the companies, they now
all have a big surplus. Fraternal orders
cannot do everything or promise every
thing, but they can and are now doing a
clean, legitimate business on sound busi
ness principles, more so than ever before."
B rower E. McCague. manager Insur
ance department, McCague Investment
company: "The Insurance hituatton Is In
a most encouraging shape Just now. I
refer particularly to fire Insurance. Buyers
of insurance are now seeking Insurance at
90 and 100 per cent of the full values of
their properties, and are taking, out more
Insurance, where formerly fhe tendency

Of course the tnore Insurance taken out

an advantage that Insurance buyers have

tlon is very perceptibly Improving' in
Omaha. The conditions are the most
favorable along Insurance lines ever
known in the city. Merchants are insur
ing to within fully 80 per cent of their
stocks, and buildings to within 75 per cent
of their full value. Owing to the tremen
dous building impulse In Omaha "within
the last two years the Insurance business
has correspondingly Increased. The In
crease In the Insurance of dwellings Is
also very noticeable. While we do not do
a very extensive Insurance business, as
we are engaged more extensively along
other lines, we feci the big lmpulse"tf in

grows with the expansion of the city. The
Omaha rates are fair and reasonable and

business during the coming season, both
In real estate and fire Insurance." ,'
F. H. Drake, local manager Fidelity
Mutual Life Insurance company: "Tho
recent Insurance agitations In the east
have not materially hurt the Insurance
business In the west. It has had the
effect of giving people stronger confidence
In the stability of the life Insurance com
panies. Business Is Increasing very rap

noticed so great a number of men seeking
old line Insurance. They realize the per

very alluring. Our company Is offering a
very attractive Inducement in the self

other companies are offering excellent in
ducements to policy . holders in various
forms and buyers of life Insurance are
beginning to realize that the safest and

A. J. Harvey, secretary HMropolltan
Mutual Bond and Surety Co.:, "We feel
that we are doing a very good business for
4-year-olds. Our company, you know. Is a
Nebraska enterprise and was -established
only fouryears ago, and we are now enter
ing on our fifth year. Our business has
been very good. There Is a growing In
clination on the part of employers to bond
their employes, such as have the handling
of funds and accounts with surety com
panies. A surety bond Is much more sat
isfactory than a personal bond, both for
the party soliciting the bond and the party
exacting the bond. A personal bond may
be good today, but tomorrow It may be
worthless. It is not so with a surety bond,
It Is good at all times. With fourteen other
fidelity and surety companies doing busi
ness in Omaha, besides our company, we
feel that we are doing fairly well. Being
an Omaha concern, we would, of course,
feel pleased to have a JfUle more Omaha
patronage. But. then, we are not kicking."
E. 8. Weatherley of the American Credit
Indemnity company: "Credit Insurance,
which originated over a -century ago in
England, had not been written to any ex
tent In the United States until about fifteen
years ago, but the necessity and value of

that the larger and more progressiva Insti
tutions In the United States have adopted
It, and the volume of business written Is
Increasing more rapidly than any other
form, aa It Is realized as being one of the
essentials tn the conduct of a business. A
great many merchants seem to feel that
fire Insurance Is a necessity and credit In
surance a luxury; little do they realize that
actual losses through lnvolvency during
the last ten yeara will exceed fire losses by
over $340,000,000. It seems Incredible, but

of this city, having its home office in "the McCague Building, la
one of the growing strong business enterprises of Omaha.
It combines in its makeup the two essential features the
people want:
FIRST Such experience in management and financial re
sources as makes its business satisfactorily conducted with per
fect assurance that all losses and obligations will be paid.
SECOND The modern feature of permitting the policy
holder to share In the profits of the company. A law was passed
taking effect April, 1905, which permitted the establishment of
a guaranty fund to which over $200,000.00 has beon subscribed
and largely paid In.
The statutes and by-laws of the company also provide that
no one has any liability 'for premiums or otherwise except up
to the board rate.
The company collects down the full premium; and rebates
profits at theend of the life of the policy. And under this new
system its business has enlarged many times over durlag tha
last few months until it is. now writing one of the largest
business in the west. t
A credit to Omaha and Nebraska and the west.
J. L. MABIE, Secretary.
J. A. Woodman, McCague Block The
Insurance situation Is excellent and pros
pects are good for business this year.
Rates are much lower, particularly for resi
dency properties. There Is a good call for
tornado Insurance. Business properties In
surance is Increasing with the growth of
the business districts. There is also a good
demand for accident Insurance.
H. V. Neely Life Insurance Is somewhat
unsettled aa a result of the action of the
New York legislature. New business Is In
creasing and the condition is generally
good and we are hoping for a good business
during the present year.
Hutchlnson-Bollard Company The Insur
ance prospects for tha coming year are far
better than last year. The better prospect
for all lines of fire insurance Is owing to
the great Increase of new buildings In this
city. A noticeable Improvement la also
manifest In dwelling Insurance, and insur
ance buyers are generally taking out larger
risks and insuring nearer to full values.
Crelgh ft Baldrigel The insurance agita
tion In New York is not hurting the fire
Insurance companies. Our business Is
much better than last year, and we are
looking for still larger business before the
close of the year. The Increase Is owing
to the number of new buildings being
erected In the city and numerous other, but chiefly to the general business
Klbourn & Gibson The Insurance busi
ness has been exceptionally good with us.
As a rule the business Is encouraging and
we are looking for an Increased business
this year. Business Is much better with
