the major portions of the report. All the
features a to fraternal Insurance and
most of the feature as to fire Insurance

the commissioners ure at work on the sec
tions dealing with deferred dividends and
expense loading and other features that
have to do with the old line life Insurance
company business. It Is understood that all
the questions at issue have to do pri
marily with the question of deferred divi
dends, the question of expense loading
bearing on. that, as the less expense there
Is the more money there will be to dis
tribute In dividends to the policy holder.
It seemed evident tonight that the com
mission could not have Its report ready to

teams In the state outside of the Western

nines, but nevertheless made a remarkable
record. The sentiment seems to be in
favor of some kind of a state organisa
tion and rules regulating salaries and
drafting of players so that the managers
will know where they are at. A regular
fixed schedule of games Is considered by
Some as hardly practicable. Fremont's
nine has been made up partly of players
who received salaries and devoted their
entire time to ball and partly of men em
ployed here who received no salaries ex
cept a contingent share of the gate re

season the management was unable to se
cure games with, nines who could play
ball well enough to keep the fans Inter
