GOVERNORS TO MEET AGAIN
Next Session to Bo at Some State
Capital Late This Year.
NO BES0LUTI0NS ADOPTED
After Extended Debate It la Deolded

Toxica . Bo Left In . s

WASHINGTON,, Jan. .-Aftr perfecting
plana for future conclaves, the conference of
governors yesterday, adjourned to meet at
one of the state capital! on a date between
Thanksgiving; day and Christmas of the
current year, time and place to be deter
mined by a committee. ,
The final teutons were marked - by a
divergence of views as to the wisdom of
the state executives as' a. body passing
resolutions for or against any proposition.
Several governors maintained that the
greatest good could be accomplished by a
courageous and definite stand upon public
questions, while others claimed that the
conferences were In the nature 'of a school
for the governors, where each learned the
experience of his fellows. Eventually all
resolutions calling for a formal expression
were left In abeyance. . ' .
A substitute committee of the League of
Self-Supporting Women of New Tork sub
mltted a statement recommending that the
political status of women be made' one of
the topics at the next meeting.
Eberhardt Resolution . Rejected.
The committee .appointed yesterday to
consider the resolution introduced by Gov
ernor Eberhardt of Minnesota, relative to
recommendation to congress In regard to
the Jurisdiction of federal and state courts,
reported that such recommendations came
within the province of the president of the
United States and were ' not within the
scope of the conference. No action was
taken upon the report of the committee.
Governor. Shafroth of Colorado introduced
a resolution stating' that it was the'senre
of the conference that the control and the
regulation of the water powers rest with
the state, This was referred to a commit
tee consisting of Governors Shafroth,'
Hughes of New, Tork and Weeks of Con
r.ecttcut, which, however, was unable to re
port, and the matter will probably be talsen
up at the next conference. '
Governor Brady of Idaho addressed the
conference on "Irrigation," while "Mining"
was the topic of Governor Sloan of Arztona.
Carroll and ShallenbersTer. .
Governor Carroll of Iowa read a paper on
"Divorce." He had little hope, he said, of
ever living to see absolute uniformity In
laws on this or any other subject, but he
thought some points In regard to the di
vorce laws could be made uniform,- such as
lengtn or residence necessary to obtain a
divorce, length of time before remarriage
and the causes for divorce, i As corrective
measures he recommended education and
better marriage laws. . .
Governor Shallenberger of Nebraska
thought the conference should give expres
sion to Its views by means of resolutions.
This provoked a lengthy discussion, In' the
course of which numerous remarks-relating
to the lack of power of governors of sev
eral states over such officers as sheriffs
and state attorneys, It. being stated th
governors In such cases were placed in the
embarrassing position of, being responsible
for 'the 'proper administration .of - the law

WASHINGTON. Jan. 21. President Taft
yesterday, addressing the annual meeting of
the Association of Life Insurance Presi
dents, held out no hope for the enactment
of a federal law to govern the companies
and advised the executive officers to bend
their efforts to secure uniform legislation
in the states.
''The United States msy not find in the
constitution the right to render uniform the
insurance business," said the president
Certainly the supreme court ssems to have
settled that question. And your' only re
course, therefore, Is to secure such common
action by the states that the result will be
similar to a single federal act controlling
the business. . .
The only function that the United States
oan perform In to pass a model law In the
Dlstrlot of Columbia and show what con
gress believes to' be the best kind of an
Insurance law." ' '
The association discussed plans for con
servation of the public health. Dr. Walter
Wyman, " Surgeon 'general of the United
States public health and marine hospital
service;. Dr. J.-M. Rosenau of the Harvard
Medical college and others spoke on the
subject. ' ; ,
' ' Address of Dr. Dirlarfct.
'Life Insurance, companies of the United
States have a Vast mine of original lnfor-
matlon that ' could be utilized to promote
publlo health and they have also an army
6f 100,000 trained men to make effective and
widespread' use of this information," said
Dr.' Edwin W Wright of Boston. "For
more, than sixty - years th llto Insurance
companies 'of this country have been stor
ing up. ammunition and developing an or
ganisation which, if properly used, would
be almost sufficient in Itself to turn the
tide In the battle for publlo health in favor
of the forces of scientific effort."
After' stating that the forty companies
doing business in the United States, who
are represented in the Ass6ciatlon of Life
Insurance Medical directors, have 80,000
medical' examinations and 20,000 agents sit
uated in N every . nook and corner of the
country. Dr. Dwlght continued:
' Th. only line of medical endeavor with
which -1 am familiar, where errors may
be correctly checked up; where mistakes of
diagnosis are proved without tn. assiaianco
of the rarely: permitted autopsy; where
treatment in the future may De aennitety
based upon the results of the past, is that
found tn the medical department or iu
insuranc. oomoanies. For over a year a
committee of the Medical Directors' asso
ciation has been developing plans for a
collective Investigation uf the experience
of all - American life Insurance companies.
Last fall we were Joined by a committee
of the Actuarial society, and in October we
were so-fortunate, as to be arne to report
that all of - the companies connected with
our two associations had agreed to Join
in . an Investigation, which, in extent and

equalled in the past and which, I believe.
will never cease in tne ruture.

public will gain nothing. If, howover, a
broader policy Is pursued, a policy which
will add nothing or little to the expense,
but greatly to Its., possibilities, a 'mass of
material will become available, which. If
properly handled, will serve to settle onoe
and perhaps for all time many of Uiu
most vexatious problems which are now
dlrliirblng the minds of those most Inter
ested in public health and preventive medi
cine. I believe that this Investigation will

prehensive' way. It is proposed In this
work to cover the ground from J870 to 1910
and Inolud. the experience of all American
life insurance companies. A conservative
estimate of the number of lives which will
be Investigated is 16.000,000.

The gang of crooks which beat a number
of Installment houses and cigar Jobbers In
Omaha and Council Bluffs out of several
hundred dollars worth of goods In a long
series of fradulent operations Is believed
to have been arrested in Kansas City.

The L. B. Price Mercantile company's
house In Council Bluffs was one of the
heaviest losers In the operations of ' the
gang. Goods ordered were delivered to a
pool hall which the three men used as a
"front" at 2800 Farnam street.
Paying down a small sum on their
purchases the men are believed to have
shipped out the goods to Kansas City for
sale. A number of cigar wholesalers in
Omaha sold large orders to the pool hall
on credit. ' ) '
