of the national democratic committee and
conferred with him for 'several , hours.

GOVERNMENT MUST RETURN
MONEY TO INSURANCE FIRM
TRENTON, N. J., Aug. 4.-Judgo Gross
filed an opinion In United States district
court today In the case of the Mutual
Benefit Life Insurance company of New
ark against the United States government
In which he decided that the government
must return to the Insurance "company
$59,600.87 out of a. total of $61,853.98 paid
by the insurance company to the govern
ment under the federal statute Imposing
a tax upon the Income of corporations.
The question at issue was purely one
as to what constituted the net income
.of a mutual life insurance 'company. One
'of the principal items In dispute was so
called dividends. These dividends in the
main were made up of portions of pre
miums paid, by policyholders which were
In" excess of the amount needed to carry
the policies .during the year for, which
the premiums were paid, but which were
set aside to carry the policies when the
insured had become' older and a greater
risk to .the company, without any In-,
crease in the annual premium they were
obliged to carry. . . .

NEW YORK, Aug. 4. The revelations
of the Rosenthal murder case, pointing
to the existence of a system of police
blnckmuli levied upon Illegal resorts.
prompted a number of leading citizens
to issue a call today for a public mass
meeting at Cooper L'nlon next week to
adopt plans "to make effective the pub
lic demand for the observance of law and
order In this city."
The signers of the call are Jacob H.
Schiff, Eugenlus II. Outerbrldge, Eugene
A. Phllbin, Henry. Moskowitz, Allen Rob
inson and Felix Adlcr. A number of
prominent women,, including Mrs. Rus
sell Sage and Mrs. E. H. Harriman, have
been asked to .become members of the
woman's auxiliary committee.
The call, sent out over the signatures
of this "citizens' committee" to a large
number of prominent men and womon in
all walks of life, says:
"The state of lawlessness now existing
in this city under cover of, which crimes
have been committed with Impunity and
criminals permitted to go unpunished,
has reached a point where public sentl- I
ment demands that the officials charged
with enforcing the laws for the protec
tion and well being of our citizens shall
perform the duties of the!r office In the
full .confidence that such performances
will have strong public support.
"It is proposed that a public meeting be
held at Cooper Union in the near future,
at which prominent speakers will be
heard and plans adopted to make effec
tive the public demand for the observance
of law and order in this city."

to give was not revealed, but it was said
that as a result of tholr examination
further important evidence of police cor
ruption, would be .ready for tho grand
Jury when that body resumes its in
vestigation next week.
The' departure of Inspector Hughes for
the Catskllls led to reports that his de
tectives were close to their quarry and
the attitude at police headquarters to
date In regard to the capture of the men
was one of expectancy.
District Attorney Whitman Intends to
place Lieutenant Becker on trial during
the present month, according to authori
tative sources tonight,. Plans have been
made by the district attorney to prevent
any possible tampering with the tales
men. As soon us the panel is drawn
at least two private detectives will be
assigned to shadow each talesman to
prevent any one attempting, bribery or
intimidation. J. M. Sullivan, attorney for
"Jack" Rose, who with "Bridge" Webber,
has charged that Lieutenant Becker in
stigated the murder of Rosenthal, has
received two death threats. The sender
of the threats indicated that he had no
more use for the attorney of a "squealer"
than he had for the "squealer" himself.
Rose, Webber and Harry Vallon, the
threo gambler-prisoners profess to fear
their lives are "not worthy the pneo
of a button" If the gangmen get a chance
to, kill them for. their confession. Lest I
they be poisoned they, eat only food pre
