THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MARCH .10, 1913.
(From a Stuff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, March .-(Speclal.)-The
bill revising; the. Insurance code as pre
pared by a commission paid to re-arrange
the 'Nebraska laws Is liable to have hard
sledding- In the house. It has passed the
Members of fraternal Insurance com.
panles have the Idea that :t this bill
becomes a law It will wipe out of ex
istence every fraternal Insurance com
pany In the state. Senator Cordeal, who
sponsored the bill In the upper house,
insists that It In no way effects fraternal
Insurance companies, and Insists that the
fear belnx thrown Into the fraternals Is
being done at the Instance of old line
companies that are trying to kill the
bill The section which. It Is alleged,
"Jinx"' the fraternal Is as follows.
Sec 142. Discrimination. No life In
surance company shall make or permit
any distinction or discrimination In favor
of Individuals, between insurance of the
name class and equal expectation of life,
In the amount of payment of premiums
or rates charged for policies of life or
endowment Insurance, or In the dividends
or other benefits payable thereon, or in
any other of the terms and conditions of
the contract It makes; nor shall any
company, agent, solicitor or broker make
any contract of Insurance or agreement
as to such contract, other than ts plainly
specified in the policy thereon; except
that any life insurance company doing
business In this state may Issue policies
of life or endowment nsurance with or
without annuities on the industrial plan
with special rates of premiums (but with
out discrimination) less than the usual
rates of premiums for such policies when
issued to members of labor organizations,
lodges, bencfclal societies or similar or
ganizations, or employes of one employer,
who through their secretary or employer
may take out Insurance in an aggregate
of not less than 100 members and pay
their premiums through such secretary
The fraternals Insist that under this
rectlon agents of an old nle compnny will
he permitted to walk Into a shop and
by making an extremely low rate Induco
the employes to "cancel their fraternal
policies and take out other Insurance. U
Is expected tbey say, when ohl lino com
j aniea have the field to themselves, rates
will bo Increased.
Another objection to the bill Is In sec
tion thirty-two which Is as follows;
Sec. 32. Name of company to appear
on policy.-.' Every Insurance company
shall conduct Its business In this state
In Its own "name, and the policies and
contracts of insurance Issued by It shall
be headed or entitled by such name. Two
or more oompanles may Jointly Issue an
underwrltcr'H policy upon which must
nrpear'tho names of the companies guar
anteeing the same and such companies
jshall bo Jointly and severally liable
thereon: Provided this limitation shall
not apply to any Insurance company ad
mitted, to this state and Issuing an under
writers policy prior to the passage of this
, Th clauso o exempt from this section
companies now doing an underwriter's
business Is said to bo for tho relief of a
compariy which recently bought out a
Tha section giving the right to the in
surance board to prescribe the particular
tform of policy it Is claimed, delegates
legislative powers to bo tho board which
Ms beyond the'-authorlty of the legislature.
a4 It Is also Claimed that there Is no de-
i'inand for a revision of the Insurances
laws of this state, and those oppoxiniC
the measure insist the code commlnbiim
went beyond its authority In drafting
such a bill. Some states have taken iuur
years to revise their Insurance laws, and
It Is Insisted that this legislature Is no
wiser than any other, and if It docs
enact this law it will do so with very
few members realizing what It Js doing.
Regardless of Senator Cordeal's un
qualified endorsement of the measure
and his standing In tho senate as ono of
Its most painstaking and hard working
members, many believe tho measure no
aponsers is a vicious one, 'uncalled foi
and entirely too long to be seriously
understood by our present leglslatuie.
Senator Cordeal, however,, has full on
fldence In his measure and will do nls
best to defeat the ."Insurance lobby,"

Sued for Accounting
NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., March 2). -(Speclal.)-Charlcs
C. Bickel of uni
versity Place has begun a suit 'n the
district court against the KlngtalTa
mills to prevent the officers, II. H.
Hanks as president and Wllber AV. Sim
as (secretary, from removing tno book
of the corporation from this state until
they have made a full accounting o the
stockholders. The mills were burned some
time since and the stockholder? had u
meeting and decided to have the books
audited and the corporation ilsjolveil.
The land and all of the remaining build
ings were sold to some of the local stock
holders and matters were to havj besti
settled up and a full accounting made to
the remaining stockholders and thi cor
poration dissolved before anything was
removed. Mr. Hanks went to Chicago
and began the erection of a new plant
and Mr. Sim was packing the books and
office furniture and fixtures to as to
ship them when the restraining order
was secured. In his petition Mr. Utcke!
states that the corporation owes Mm
12,000 borrowed money and be holds
13,000 of the stock and that no account
ing has been made to him regarding the
160,000 or $70,000 Insurance which was had
on the plant and part of which hui been
paid over to the officers abovo named.
Mr. Bickel Is one of the directors of the
company andv a brother-in-law of the
president, H. H. Hanks.

IjINCOUN. March .-(Spcclal.-State
warrants are not nearly as popular as
theye were when the session Of the legis
lature first opened by reason of the tact
that there Is no money to pay them and
the holder Is forced to have them regis
tered or tako them down to tho money
changers and have them discounted In
order to get enough to pay that board
bill and that room rent.
A great deal of this could have been
avoided If the members of the legislature
had paid any attention to the request
of the state treasurer to fix the law so
that county treasurers wouldd be re
quired to remit the state treasurer all
money duo the state before the 15th
of cath month.
Hod this requirement been put Into the
law with the emergency clause money
now being held by tho different county
treasurers of the state, belonging to the
state, would be ln the hands of the state
treasurer and In all probably the members
would be getting their money instead of
having to dispose of their warrants to
tho money changers at a discount.
How Time Warn Spent.
However, the members seemed to think
that, tho needs of the state would be
better subserved by spending the stato's
money In Investigating trips. Instead of
passing a few laws which wpuld really
be beneficial, and, while $140,030 were ap
propriated at the beginning to pay ex
penses of the legislature this has long
since passed Into the unfathomless past
and there Is nothing left to- make the
leglsaltor smllo or the hard worked em
has drawn, cannot bo denied. The atti
tude of studied detachment In which the
story Is told makes It particularly significant.
