New Tork, March 1. 1907.
Life Insurance haa paaeed through another year of agltattjn. The "ol
ume of business In 10 was dimiuisiitd. Notwithstanding this, much haa
been acoompllnhod that la exceedingly gratifying.
Tha total a.aeta of the eoolety on January let, 190. were 4SO,17,J14.t,
and on January 1. 1907, aggregated I4.4.SI1.I7I.1 J.
Tha payments to policyholders during 1S0 were $44. ($1,942.38. Of thin

In 1904 the policyholders received 70.4 per cent out of erery dollar dl
buraed by tha society to 19. per cent uaed for expense and taxes; tn J90i
they received T4.6.". per cent to JV8S per cent paid out for all other purposes,
and In 10 out of every dollar of disbursements 10 per cent want to the
policyholder, while only 40 per cent waa expended for the conduct of the
business. Thla waa a reduction of about one-third In the expenae of admini
stration to total disbursements. Btlll further Improving along thla line
will be the endeavor.
The ratio of expense to premium Income waa Z4.4S per cent In 1904 and
H.tO per cent In 1905; thla was reduced to 19.94 per cent In 190, a decrease
In ratio of 90.1 per cent from 1904. and 14 per Cent from 1905.
The ratio of the aoolety's total expenses to Its total Income was 19. ii
per cent In 1904. and 17.19 per cent In 190S; this waa reduced to 14.1 per cent
In 190, a saving of 27. 4 per cent from 1904 and iO.t per cent better than 190S.
The Society haa loaned during 10 to Ita policyholder on Its poli

excess of tha loana.
The Income of the aoclety from Ita Interest and rents waa $1,909,373.39
greater In 1906 than In ISO. The average rate of Interest yielded by the
Society's Investments, which amounted to 8.90 per cent In 1904, was 4.03 por

TRAINMEN CALL IT ONE-SIDED
Think Railroad Conld Afford to Do at
Ilttle Conceding to e
1 do not .. quite see . how the railroad
managers hope to Justify their claims that
they want to arbitrate and compromise on
thla trouble with the conductors and brake
men," said an old Union Pacific conduotor.
"They have made . much of their avowal
for peace and arbitration, yet we have
done all the conceding. We started out
with a demand for 10 per cent more pay
and a nine-hour day. They talked peace
and we, being peaceable beings, conceded
the wage proposition and accepted their
eight and one-half per cent compromise.
Now there Is but one part of the proposi
tion left and they want ua to concede that.
Well. I auppoae If we conceded that, too,
we might be placed In the category of
peaceable belnga as viewed by our em-
ployers. But don't you think It Just a
little unfair for peace to be effected by
one fellow doing all the peacemaking?"
Local operating officials of railroads, who
are no more anxloua to have their names
used with their statements' than are the
trainmen, contend the nine-hour day would
be almost Impossible, as It would force
a change of divisions In western lines."
In this connection It la noted that the
same officials offered the plea of Impossi
bility as one argument against the t-cent
fare and a few other similar matters..
The present wage acale ia the one which
haa been In force alnce the days when
trainmen were' paid by the month. It la a
ten-hour day, which means 100 miles, and
for all overtime the men are paid at the
same rate, that la, eleven hours for 110
miles, twelve hours for 120 miles, thirteen
hours for 130 miles, and ao on. Pasaenger
men are paid aa a rule so much per month.
The achedulea on the fast trains now
westbound between Omaha and Grand Is
land on the Union Pacific call for fourteen
hours, for which the men receive fifteen
hours' pay. The man are now demanding
that they be given a day's pay for nine

Cafe ia Saloon.
JOHN M, FIX. IS A HEAVY LOSER
Deed Is Mach the Same as that Per
formed In Metropolitan In
The ealoon of John M. Flxa, 1518 Dodge
atreet, waa entered by robbers about ,4
o'clock Tuesday morning, the combination
aafe unlocked, the inalde money compart
ment opened and I"i75 In cash stolen from
It, after which the bnck bar waa eat on
fire and considerable damage waa done to
the fixtures of the place by flames.
That robbers had been present waa dis
covered by the proprietor when he ar
rived at the ealoon after the fire and found
the money gone and a package of checks
and other papers with acorched edges In
alde, Indicating they had been near the
fire and then thruat Into the aafe. The
door of the aafe waa closed and when the
firemen arrived there was no Indication of
The circumstances aurroundlng the caae
are much like those of the Metropolitan
Life Insurance company of a week ago,
when the safe In Its offices was opened
with key snd combination and the money
extracted, while not the slightest clue was
left, except the evidence of familiarity with
the offlfie details.
The Flxa saloon adjolna his restaurant
at 1516 Dodge atreet, which Is kept open all
night, and a door leads from one room to
the other, but this Is kept locked while tho
saloon Is closed. Whoever' effected an en
trance would have had to do so taking
care not to arouse any one In the res
taurant or kitchen.

by firemen or waa already open when they

ventilating and cleaning and It would be a

The safe waa kept In the "office" part
of the aaloon, near the desk, whloh was
found open by Chief Salter and closed by
him. The whole thing Is easily visible from
the street, and any person working within
would be In constant danger of discovery
from the outside. The case was given to
the police early, but they are at a loss for
some ground upon which to work. Tha
tracka of the robbers, If they left any, are
well covered up by the debris of the fire.
The loas from the flames will about equal
that of the robbery. The ,blase waa oun
flned entirely to the back bar, but the
main bar waa alao acorched, as waa the
screen and other fixtures.
Mr. Flxa had Insurance On his safe, but
