TRENTON, N. J., March . Many Im
portant recommendattons' for ths regula
tion of . life .Insurance companies In New
Jersey are Included In the report of ths
select .committee of the senate, appointed
last year to Investigate the subject, of life
Insurance In the state, which was made
public today.
, By far the greater part ofthe report Is
devoted to the Prudential Insurance Com
pany of America, the largest of the four
companies under Investigation. .Principal
among; the recommendations Is one that a
bill be enacted limiting fhe amount of
capital stock which any life Insurance com
pany may have to 82,000,000 and the divi
dends which may be paid thereon from
future earnings, so long as the company
continues to conduct the participating life
Insurance business, to 10 per cent upon
the stock, and providing that upon the
dissolution of the cotnpa'T the stockhold
ers of the company shall have out of. the
ultimate distribution of- assets not more
than 82 for 81 of the face value of their
hares. This bill psovld, however, . that
where accumulations greater than that
amoJt- already have taken place (as
daisied In .the case of the Prudential), the
stockholders shall, not be deprived of their
rights thereto. -
Other Rerommendatloii, '
Among other recommendations ' were:
Provisions for the appointment by the gov
ernor of three directors of every stock life
insurance company, these directors to be
persons having no Interest In the stock of.
the corporations; limiting the amount of
the stock ' which' any company may hold
In any company to 15 per cent of the whole,
and that where a company holds more than
the amount so limited It shall dispose of
the ' excess wlthm' live years! providing
that no life Insurance company shall In
vest mora than 2 per cent of Its own assets
In the stock of any other corporation, or
more than 10 per cent of Its assets In the
bonds of any other corporation; restricting
child Insurance;- requiring more detailed
statements of the affairs of Insurance com
panies for the purpose of, securing more
publicity with respect to helr affairs; re
quiring (the -examination of Insurance agents
' at least once in three years, the examina
tion to be. brought Immediately under the
direction of the Insurance commissioners;
pronlbltlng contributions to political camf
palgn, conventions; that after January 1,
no domestic company shall write both
participating and nonpartlclpating policies,
and requiring all stock companies to elect,
on or before September of this ' year
whether they shall conduct a "participating
or nonpartlclpating business after the fol
lowing first day of January, and a provl-

No recommendations were made bearing
upon foreign Insurance companies except
those which' prescribe "certain provisions
which may be in every policy and those
which forbid the putting of certain provi
sions In policies.
The committee reports that on the whole
It found that the companies under Investi
gation have been carefully administered,
their funds generally well Invested and
the salaries of . their officers: not so high
as to require restrictive legislation.
The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance com
pany was found to be a purely mutual
company and to have ahowh a steady and
uninterrupted growth. There Is little sug
gested by an examination of this company, .
says the report, which calls for any otltl
cism or reformatory legislation.
The committee has no special recom
mendations .to make with respect . to the
case of the Colonial Life .Insurance Com
pany of America, the funds of which, It
says,, appear to be carefully Invested, or
the North American Life Insurance com
pany of Newark. The latter company was
organised only about a month ago.
Work of Prudential. '
The report contains an extended review
of the Prudential from the time of Its or
ganisation In 1873 under I he names of tho
Widows' and Orphans' Friendly society,
with a share capital of 325,000, until the
present, when, as the Prudential Insurance
Company of America, It has a capital stcclr
of 82,000,000 and a surplus of 318,580,000. Tho
report says:
It is' claimed that this surplus belongs
to the stockholders, subject to contlngen:
liability to policyholders. It would appear
from the president's testimony that cer
tainly In the past and In the present some
at least of the stockholders, would, If they
could, divide this surplus, or part of It, In
the snape ot casn or stock aividenos. The
case presents a remarkable state of affairs.
By the investment of $91,000 in cash three
stockholders were enabled to ' accumulate
stock of $2,000,000, whereon they have al
ways drawn 10 per cent, or 200.OjO per
year, and still to accumulate beyondlhat
316,600,000. ' Nor Is this all. So rapid were
toe gains and so great the prospect of their
future accumulation that In 1902, when the
scheme for reclprooal control of the Fidelity
and Prudential companies was In course ot
arrangement the stockholders of the Pru
dential company were able to dispose of
shares at, six times their par value aid the
principal p.omotef of the comp ny aotuiliy
received for a part only of uielr holdings
In November, 19o2, from the treasury of the
Fidelity Trust company $5,897,000. . ,
- Sarplns Is Trust Knnd.
For the shares which . produced ' this
amount there had been paid Into tla treas
ury ot the Widows and Orphans friendly
society by the promoters only $4S,5ol.0s, or
three-quarters of 1 per cent of this vast
sum of money.
If the theory of the stockholders be cor
rect that the surplus of this company In
law belongs tq them, the present surplus
of $18,580,000 afforda $204 for each dollar of
the $91,000 contributed to the enterprise,
and this In addition to annual dividends pf
$200,000,1 or 219 per cent paid for many years
Ths assets of a life ' Insurance company
are trust funds and the management of
such-a company must be deemed to be the
management of a great trust. While It may
be, true, as a strictly legal proposition that
the obligation of the company to policy
holders are limited by the, terms of the
written contracts .or policies which it is
sues, yet it is not the whom truth; and
the x Prudential company' Itself has recog
nised that its obligations. In equity and
good conscience, go further, for they state
thai, that they have voluntarily divided up
among policy holders, In excess of Its legal
obligations, more than $7,000,000.
The truth Is that this vast accumulation
of money, now amounting to more 'than
$126,000,000 was all contributed by and In
ethics all ' belongs to the policy holders,
after a fair deduction for tne expenses of
operations Just and liberal return to the
promoters of the enterprise. While the
vested rights of the stock holders, what
ever they may be, of the Prudential com
pany must be recognised and maintained,
we cannot ' contemplate without' some
solicitude the continuous rolling up of
an enormous surplus by this company,
taken from millions of contributors for
whom the company Is the trustee. If this
surplus Is to be considered ths property of
a few stock holders, whose reward ob
tained under the company's charter have
already been so great If ths stock holders'
Interest In this corporation' la what some of
them claim It to be It may well be doubted
whether they cannot prevent the voluntary
contributions out of "the surplus to the
policy holders which heretofore have been
made from year to year to the extent of
$7,000,000; and It may well be supposed
that the time will come, at no distant day,
when the pretensions of stock holders may
again bring forth from them a 'demand for'
the division of this surplus. .
Aeenmnlatlea Mast lie Stopped.
It has been stated before us that at the
present rate ot progress this surplus Is
likely to be, at the end of 1907, $23,000,000 and
the end of 1908, $2S,000.000. This money
ought. In some way to be assured to the
policy holders, except such part as now
belongs to the holders of stock. Rather
than allow this accumulation to go on for
tl.e benefit of the stock holders at the ex
pense of the policy holders of this company,
we would be In favor of the repeal of the
charter of the corporation, and a reorgani
sation of It under ths general law and
under preper restrictions, if such a meas
ure seemed necesary, but the committee
does not think that such a remedy Is
necessary and they believe that the Invasion
of any Juat rights of the stock holders
can be avoided and yet that the assets
ran be substantially retained for the policy
It Is. In place 'of this extreme measure
that the committee prepared the bill
limiting the amount of capital stock' of any
Insurance company to $3,000,000 and restrict
ing ths profits of stock holders.

one hour and eighteen minutes.

fifteenth Inning, when he ran 66 points
after some of the most difficult shots pos
sible. A simple draw pear the top rail,
however, proved his undoing. Poggenburg

Farmer Accepts Challenge of
Pag.ll, (Jhanplas of Catted
Frank Ootch, champion heavyweight and
Farmer Burns, champion middleweight
wrentler of the United States, are matched
for the best two out of three catch-as-catch-can
at the Auditorium next Tuesday
night. March 12. " ' ..
This announcement was made Wednesday
morning by Peter Loch. He read a tele
graphic challenge from Ooch to ths winner
of the Burns-Parr match at ringside Tues
day night and Burns has accepted.
t'p to th present the Bums-Parr match
stands out most conspicuously In the wrest
lings annals of Omaha, but that match will
necessarily be overtopped In Importance by
the Ootch-Burns match. Parr Is ths cham
pion of England and he was thrown by the
middleweight champion of America, but
here comes the heavyweight champion of
.America for the foxy old Farmer to handle.
Ootch has been recognised as the best
there is for a long time. -He was matched
to wrestle the Russian Lion at Kansas City
for $10,000 a siqe In May, but ths Lion has
turned tali
The interesting thing about ths meeting
of Burns and Ootch Js that .Burns Is ths
man who taught Ootch ths game. Both are
Iowana. Goteh Is a boy In years as com
pared with the veteran Farmer. Farmer
saw the raw' material In him a few years
ago and took hold of him. Out of that raw
material he developed the greatest man on
the mat. And yet not so great that his old
teacher cannot get a fall out of him with
aggravating frequency. Ootch weighs be
tween 198 and 202, while Burns ranges from
108 to 17. '
A feature of the Parr-Burns match was
not only the splendid audience, but that
there were so many women present. It Is
thought the Auditorium will be none too
large for ths crowd at th Ootch-Burns
People who saw the Burns-Parr match
were Impressed with nothing more than the
vast difference In the characters of the
two men aa manifested in their speeches
after the wrestle. Burns, the old man who
never engaged in a foul affair, won by dint
of superior skill and vet arose from the
mat at the end and told the roaring audi
ence, "one mas s as good as another, parr
is one' of the best men' I have met In the
west. He gave me an awful tug." Parr,
through his interpreter, Peter Loch, said he
was lot at his best, etc., etc., and added
he would wrestle Burns In Chicago, St.
Louis or New York tor $500 or $1,000 a side.
"Why not Omaha." yelled a fan and then
a hundred. For, Indeed. Omaha had treated
Parr far better, than doubtless an English
audience would treat Farmer Burns. Parr
told friends before the wrestle he was In
fine form, and he was, too. but, of course,
finer than when Farmer Burns had got
through with him. Before he Is entitled to
challenge the Farmer let him go throw
some other good man.
Inside tin to th contrary notwithstand
ing, the St. Louis . management evidently
has not yet found out that it has sgreed
to pay George 8yne the $4,000 he demands
for this season, as the team has gone on
Its practice tour with Stone still unsigned.
6tone Is worth the money snd probably
could get It and more where 'Tie manage
ment waa not a tightwad.' Being com
pelled to play with an Inferior team at an
inferior salary is a sever sentence for a
superior man.
President Cross of th ftefhoff Athletic
club has arranged a big- card for Friday
night at the regular meetlnsr of the dub.
Those two former rivals, McCarthv, the
fUhUng brakeman of Council Bluffs, aud
Out Ruckles, the Omaha you
matched for a flfleen-round tm. Th.
met on a former occasion and ten rounds
was not enough to permit of a decision,
so the manasrment has extended the time
to fifteen rounds, that one or the other
rnlght win. Two rattling preliminaries
have also been arranged, one a six-round
nd the other a ten-round affair.
Jimmy Parr .must have been reared
among the Eskimos, where the customary
Sign of greeting Is the rubbing of noses.
He drank the hitter dreps of his own medi
cine, though. In those last two falls.. -
Someone says Jimmy Parr tnld his defeat
to Tele Inch's saw mill. The quartet was
an Innovation. But, then. Burns stood It.
What a difference Just a few hours make.
Tuesdny morning- Jim Parr confidently told
a friend he could not only threw "this
Farmer Bums, but I'll put Frank Ooteh on
his back, too. He must have been feeling
"bully" then, much better. In fact, than
when at the ringside Tuesday night he
protested that the reason Farmer Rurns
threw him wss that he. Parr, was not at
his best. Rata!

"What makes the difference In price la
Council Bluffs and In Omaha T"
That question was asked of one dealer,
who said he could not understand It. unless
Council Bluffs ' wss getting an Inferior
grade of Illinois nut, while Omaha waa
getting the. washed coal, which Is consld 4
erably better.
"Washing takes out the sulphur anil
makes a better coal, and the Illinois coal
In Omaha Is egg-slsed."
"How about the spsdra coal?" was asked
of the same dealer.
"I don't understand that, unless they bar
a fight on In Council Bluffs and are selling
the coal for less than cost, or at A very
small margin." x
Another dealer, said:
"They can't sell a good quality of Illi
nois nut fur 85.60 and make anything on It,
and they surely don't make anything on th
spadra at $8.50. If they want to give their
coal away over there they are Welcpma
to do It."
From the Other Side of the River.
'IWe are .selling these brands of coal at

Council Bluffs' dealer. "The Omaha
dealer who says wa can't sell at these;
prices and make a profit doesn't know
what he la talking about. . He may un
derstand his business, but that does not
necessarily mean he understands our bust

Omaha and South Omaha schools yester
day arranged for what they hope will be
the final chapter In the recent vandalism
on the Omaha .and South Omaha high,
schools. In consideration of the manner
In which the offending students presented
themselves and offered to make amends, It
was conoluded to permit the students to
retain their standing In the schools provid
ing they restore the damaged property to
Its original condition. The students involved
In this affair aU'expressed their regrets and
appeared to be chastened by their acts.
The offense with which these students
were charged was the painting of class
references on the stonework In front of
the Omaha and South Omaha high schools,
the Omaha students going to South Omaha
and 'the students from the Magic City re
taliating In Omaha. To restore the stone
work to a proper condition will coat each
student' enough money to make the Inci
dent worth remembering. It Is thought
The school authorities, however, . feel
pleased that th students came into th
open and confessed, although the affair
was a serious one. .
