mind- and that means most people have been disturbed and
unsettled by the developments and denunciations of the past
few months. What these people want is the truth the plain .
unvarnished truth. To give them this truth is the object of this announcement.
. The Mutual Life Insurance Company was organized in 1843. the first
of its kind in America. In 24 years it had become the largest in the world.
For 39 years, in fpite of the keenest competition, it has held the lead, passing
unharmed through panics, failures, strikes and wars : meeting with promptness
its every obligation and having over 470 millions of assets to-day; this being
78 millions in excess of the 392 millions required by law as a reserve fund for
paying all the Company'! insurance risks, fas certified by the New York
Insurance Department ; and all other legal liabilities.
The recent Insurance agitation was unique. The investigation certainly
was thorough. As every one knows the Mutual Life was on the firing line.
The smoke nas now dearet away. What do we find?
In the first place we find that the Mutual Life is still the largest and
staunchest Life Insurance Company in the world. Without defending or in
the least belittling the abuses and extravagances recently brought to light,
everybody should keep in mind the fact that the solvency of this Company
has not for a moment been affected thereby. Concerning the work of the
finance committee which has been attacked in the press, this Company's
auditing committee consisting of Messrs. Truesdale, Auchincloss, Tish and
Dixon stated on February 15th,'19C6 :
l)The Committee certify that the investments ef the Company are of
the highest order and well selected" and "have found the valuation given
safe and conservative, in many instances less than the market value, and in
none in excess of such value." ' . ..
In the next place, extravagance has been stopped, and those responsible
for it have gone ; a new management has been installed, and retrenchments
have been affected that have already saved vast sums of money and will save
much more as time goes on. Legislative reforms have likewise been antici- ,
Eated, and the Company is now as sound at the circumference as it always hat
een at the'eore.
In the next place, the ending of the first quarter presents an excellent
opportunity for comparing this year with last.
Tht amount paid policy holders is $9,608,436.30, an increase of
$r, 070,815. 36. The receipts for premiums were $13,082,484.37, a decrease
of 857,905.29 for the period. This is a shrinkage of less than 5 per cent.
The amount paid for expenses was $i,9JSSJ2-44 a reduction of
This remarkable showing is a good thing to be kept in mind by every
bodythose now insured in the Mutual Life, and those who should be.,. It
cannot be accounted for by the smaller amount of new business written. "
Of the saving for the quarter, the sum of $390,961.52 is in items not connected
with the obtaining of new business.
In the next place we find that this Company is doing businessmore
business than any other company in the world with one exception. Far from
being paralyzed or demoralized it is forging right ahead. Policies by the
. hundred are being written each day; honest trustees, keenly alert, are directing
its affairs; faithful and experienced men are doing its intricate work; loyal '
agents are explaining its advantages and discriminating people are obtaining
iU protection. . , - ,
. In the next place we find that there need be no question as to the future.
A policy in the Mutual Life is just as good as gold. No obligation could
possibly be better. A bond of the United States Government is no later; ":
It will, therefore, be a misfortune if any one is misled by the writer who prints
for revenue or for notoriety, ot by the attorney who is out for his clients, or
the competitor who is out for himself, or even by the gentlemen who have ...
organized themselves into committees under an nonest misapprehension of
the facts. Such incidents may tend to hinder business, but need deter no
one who needs insurance. '
With economv, which means rapid improvement in regard to earning
of surplus for dividends, everywhere at work in the Mutual Life ; with its
immense size as the basis for moderate general expenses ; with smaller liability
for renewal commissions to agents than any other Company ; with the cost
of new business limited by law for all Companies, how can any one possibly
better provide for the. uncertainties of the future than through a policy in
the first Insurance Company in America, and the strongest in the world
