waa present. Senator Saundera presented
ths case and the others argued against
It. Ha said in. part: .
Tha head cams of the Modern Wood
men of America at Chicago adopted a
number of plana or options which rev teed
the rates and placed tha society upon a
basis where ita lneuranoa will be aa cer-
Ualn and sura ot payment aa any old line
lire Insurance company. The raiee ta
many cases le quite heavy, eapedally with
the old members ana tnie sea naturally
resulted In a great deal of discussion. All
ths earlier fraternal Insurance soviet lea
were organised upon aa Inadequate table
of rates, and as a reeult a very consider
able number of them here gone to the
wall because the asaeeemento became so
numerous that tha young men withdrew
from the society end the old men having
the higher mortality remained until the
burden became 00 great that a receiver,
ahlp followed. The Ancient Order of
I tilted Workmen In Pennsylvania got to
the point where they were collecting
tit per month for each thousand dollars
of Insurance, and than the society went
Into the hands of -a receiver, leaving
KUO.OM of unpaid death claims . I have
been a member of the Woodmen since
lNtt and only eight years of that lime
heve I paid the coat nf my Insurance.
The Modern Woodmen had most of Its
early growth In the states of Kansas,
Nebraska. Iowa. Illinois, Wisconsin and
Minnesota, and in these ststee are located
most ot the 10.00) men who are above the
age of M years. The mortality at the
older ages la -very -high and the young
men of the society have not only beea
Htying the coat of carrying their own
nsurance. but In sddltlon thereto have
been paying a considerable part of the
cost of carrying ths older membere.
1 noticed an article in the Nonpareil
this morning written by Neighbor Huff,
in which hs eompielna that this plan Is
not fraternal. Mr. Huff la not at the
present time paying one-half of the cost
of his insurance In the Mooern wood
men of America, and the younger mem
bers of. the society are paying tha dif
ferenced He complains that the new
plan la not fraternal, but It Is difficult
for me to understand how any plan can
oe fraternal where one man asks another
to pey for hla Insurance.
Hasel Camp at Council Bluffs haa
drawn out of the benefit fund of the
society fw.tu) more than It haa con
tributed. One of the leading campe in
Omaha haa drawn in exresa of Stu.oue
more thsn It has paid Into the benefit
iund. The state of Illinois, which hss
more old members than any other state,
has drawn K.OOO.oou more out of the
benefit fund than It has contributed.
The society was first organised at
Clinton, la., and In Clinton county the
campe have drawn more than 1HW.OO0
n deeth benefits tn excess or the amount
jontrtbuted. This burden hss been car
. ied by the young men, and largely by
the newer states In the Jurisdiction.
A hen the membership lu these newer

This loading of the rates of the young

"The power end of our
business is something
that never worries us."
This is the way L. J. Nelson & Company cboosrs
to endorse Electric Power: "We are about to movo
our box factory to 39th and Pacific streets and wo are
anxious to make the move without the usual loss in
business on account of moving. We therefore want you
' to make the necessary provisions for connecting cur
motors immediately after permission is granted by the
City, so that the power end of our business will cause
as little worry as it did at our old plant. We also desire
to advise that we expect to run night and day for a
week or ten days, until we get settled down to a normal
basis in our new factory. We suppose the power am
be used as before at no extra expense for over time
Anyone desiring engineering advice on power in
stallations can get it free of cost by asking for the ser
vices of our Industrial Engineer.
