field, who. It was held by the delegates,
appeared as expressing the views of
Theodore Roosevelt and who. It was
feared, would not consent to a declara
tion in favor of any Individual.
The resolutions followed a day of La
Follette enthusiasm In which his nama
was cheered repeatedly aa it was men
tioned by a doten speakers. Contrary to
expectations, tho conference was con
eluded In one day; most of the delegates
left the city and tho progressive program
outlined for tomorrow will be devoted
to support of state and local candidates
and conditions.
Resolutions Adopted.
The resolutions were framed, by a sub
committee of live from a committee of
thirteen and revised by former Secretary
Garlleld and t.'ongi ofsinan Irvine L. Len
root of Wisconsin. Aa finally adopted,
they read In purl:
'the progressive movement Is a struggle

In the national field, the control of gov.

by the influence ana power of the reac

The present condition of uncertainty
In business Is intolerable and destructive
of industrial prosperity. It is worse
than idle to leave the question of whether
'great business enterprises are legal or

Robert Marion La Kollette of Wiscon
sin years ago found conditions in his
state not unlike thoae of the nation to
day. Undei) his leadership ail opposition
was overcome and there has been en
acted in VNlBconsln a system of lawa

La Follette Favored.
The record of Senator La, Follette In
state and nation makes Mm logical
candidate for president of the United
States. Hia experience, his character,
his courage, his record of constructive
legislation and administrative . ability
meet the requirements for leadership
such as present conditions demand.
This conference Indorsee him aa a can
didate for the republican nomination for
president and urges that all state or
ganizations be formed to promote hia
The resolutions were drafted by E. P.
Costigan of Colorado, C. E. Merrlam of
Chicago, Jamea R. Oarfleld of Ohio,
Amos Pinchot of New York and J. E.
Little of North Carolina.
While the avowed intention of the eon
ference was the Indorsement of La Fol
lette. the arrival of Oarfleld in a non
committal attitude put the La Follette
supporters on the defensive. His visit
here was announced a week ago, after a
visit in New York with Mr. Roosevelt
and Benator Jonathan Bourne of Oregon,
president of the National Republican
league, and it was expected some other
plan might be Insisted upon. Mr. Gar
field took no part in the open program of
the day. however, and the Indorsement
went through without a hitch.
Wisconsin. Minnesota, and Nebraaki
sent the biggest delegation, outside of
Illinois, and the indorsement ot the Wis
consin man became certain early In the
day. Speaker after speaker, some by In
ference, some by name, referred to him
and to v hat they termed the Wisconsin
Idea, each reference developing a little'
longer cheering.
Senator Moses E. Clapp of Minnesota
was the first speaker after Media McCor
mtck had called the meeting to order and
George L. Record of New Jersey had
been elected chairman. Senator Clapp
was regarded as the keynote speaker, and
was the (tret to mention the Wisconsin
senator and announce the purpose of the
senator Crawford peaks
Senator C. I. Crawford, the only United
States senator present besides Senator
Clapp, placed the responsibility tor ex.
isting conditions on the federal govern
ment. He pointed te the confusion aris
ing from the legislatures of several ad

Disappointment was expressed at the
failure to arrive of Glfford Fincbot, who
Is on his war from Alaska. Senator
Borah of IdaJia, Benator Cummins of
Iowa and others bad been announced as
expected participants la the conference,
but they advised the committee they were
unable to attend.

the republican nomination tor governor of
Illinois; Amos plnchot ot New York

George Beban and his new play. "The
Sign of the Rose." met with a reception
at the hands ot ths New York critics
that warrants the belief that the play will
be a suocess. The 8ua and the Times
were warm In praise; the Tribune hyper
critical, but the tact Is chronicled by all
that the play touches the popular chord.
It is an elaboration of the sltetoh Mr.
Beban presented at the Orpheum here
last winter. Omaha Interest depends on
the tact that the play Is scheduled for
an appearance at the Brandeis during the
season, also that Miss Marie Pavey. who

So jreat has been the advance In gclentlfjc measures to protect
eoclety arnliiet the Might of epidemic dlnnaso that the public at large
rente In lv security. This explains why life Insurance com
panies long ago found It desirable to otnlt exemption clauses touch
ing epidemic diseases. Nearly every company now Issues policies
containing a c)huo permitting the policy holder to apply for permit
under the terms of which he may go to war without Invalidating hia
Insurance. It is Interesting to note in this connection that the Spanish
American war did not disturb the equanimity of llfo Insurance
Happily, the United States la comparatively free from epidemic
diseases and from the possibility of war with a foreign power. Life
insurance companies are enjoying that high degree of prosperity
which follows In the wake of national peace and security. Yet. they
have scientific methods for finding a basis for computing the average
death-rate or the people at largo, and that also of policy holders who
have withstood the searching physical examinations prescribed. No
man baa ever been able to forecast the duration of lives of Individuals,
but a way hs been found to compute the probable number of deatha
In one thousand of people In a given state, during the period of one
For instance, the U. a. Census Bureau, once In ten years, com
piles fctatlstlcs, giving the number of denths In every 1,000 of popu
lation within a given year In a, number of at a tea and principal cities.
The latest bulletin on the subject haa just been Issued. Of course the
flgurea apply to all the people and not to any specified class. This
bulletin, as well as the census ot 1900, clearly shows tho average
death rale In eastern states to be higher thau that of western states.
It Is not the purpose of this article to give the reasons for these
established facts. Tho table herewith Is made up of figures, taken
from authentic son ices:
Kastern No. Deaths Western No. Deaths
Slates, Per 1,000 States, Per 1,000

Thus it will be seen that an Insurance company wboHe policy
holders reside largely In eastern states must sustain a death rate
nearly double that of a western company whose policy-holders reside
In Nebraska and bordering states.
These figures were taken from the public records. The death
rate of policy-holders residing In the west Is lower thsn that of the
public because the policy-holder la selected for his good health and
high expectation of life.
These statistics are highly Important to all policy-holders. If
a western Insurance company is called upon to pay a less number of
death claims In a thousand policy-holders than an eastern company
Is required to pay, It stands to reason that it Is most fortunately sit
uated. Whatever may bo said ot other life companies. It is a fact that
The Dankers Reserve Life Company ot Omaha has been doubly for
tunate in this regard. . The actuary ot that company, basing his
estimate upon the American experience table of mortality, predicted
that the mortality cost of risks carried In 1910 would aggregate
1234,608. But the actual mortality cost was far below that sum,
being 1100,686 much less than half the amount predicted.
This Is a fact of paramount Importance to every policy-holder
In the country, for the obvious reason that the life company having
the fewest death losses is best able to meet Its contract obligations
with all policy-holders. In the very nature of the case, the west is
the more desirable place In which to do the business of life Insurance.
Yet this fact is not the only reason for the phenomenal auccees of
The Dankera Reserve Ufa Company, due in Urge part, to careful and
conservative management in all of Its departments. It Is one of the
strongest financial institutions of the west, with assets exceeding
S3, 000,000, and with excess security to policy-holders of $678,677.67.
The company's assets are In western securities, btate, county and
municipal registered bonds and first mortgages on high class real
estate. 'The interest receipts from these investments tor the nlno
months of 1911 were more than enough to pay the death losses during
that time. This Is a faet of the highest Importance to policy-holders,
giving evidence of able management and of the liberal conditions of
the company's policies. This strong western company Is expanding its
business and Is making most attractive terms to its agents in Nebras
ka and other states. Evidence that its policies are highly attractive
is found in the fact that Its Insurance business now in tore ag
gregates $28,000,000. The Company wants an active agent in every
county of this Section. If Interested drop a line to the Company.
