3-A HARD SLEDDING FOR BILL Insurance Code Measure Likely to Have Rough Path. FHATERNALS ARE UP IN AIR Builders Hustle on Roof of Hopper's House OMAHA'S ONLY MODERN CLOTHING STORE KING-PECK CO. "NOME OF QUALITY CLOTHES" At MOWAPD Allegation Mnde bjr Them thnt Pro poaed Hetrare 'Will nlook Fntnre of Theae Concerns In State ) of Nebrnakn. FORMERLY KING-SWANSON CO. THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MARCH .10, 1913. 5 u r 4 (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 senate. 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 or employer. 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 act. , 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 Lincoln concern. 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," residence: ok c. l. hop ter, iais corbv street Have You Nasal Catarrh?

KingfalfaTMills Sued for Accounting NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., March 2). -(Speclal.)-Charlcs C.

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. Bickel Is one of the directors of the company andv a brother-in-law of the president, H. H. Hanks. Otoe County Towns Send Aid to Berlin NEBRASKA CITY, Neb., March 23. (Special.)

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 ploye happy. has drawn, cannot bo denied.
