Recently Fitch was repudiated by sev

said, Is In substance a counter attack.
Compton's demand may force the Board
of Education to decide whether or nc-t
suffrage is a political question, as political
discussions have been barred from the
schools. Fitch has opposed suffrage de
bates being held in schools.
President C. T. Walker of the school
board is of the opinion that suffrage is
not any more a political question than

Nash and Prinz Go
East for Ideas for
L. C. Nash, general manager of the
Burgess-Nash company, accompanied by
Ueorgo Brlnz, architect, has gone east
for a two weeks' trip to Inspect the new
est and most up-to-dato sfbres to gather
Ideas' for (he arrangement of the new
Burgess-Nash store. They will visit
New York, Philadelphia, Washington and
other large cities and upon their return
the development of the new store will
start at once. Some time ago Mrs. E. W.
Nash bought the Boyd theater property
adjoining the Burgess-Nash store on the
west and the Burgess-Nash company has
taken a thirty-year lease on this. The
Boyd theater will be torn down and the
new store made to conform with the
present building used by the company.
Fireworks to Greet
the New Pastor of
the Olivet Baptist
Verily, it will be a warm reception that
the members of Olivet oaptlst church,
Thirty-eighth ana. Grand avenue, will
give their new pastor. Rev. William A.
Mulford. Fireworks, flags and a band
concert will figure largely In the affair.
The reason for such unusual methods
In welcoming a minister Is that Rev. Mr.
Mulford and his wife will arrive in
Omaha July A. His congregation will be
occupied with the big Fourth of July
celebration in Fontenelle park by the Im
provement club and social centers of that
part of the city. The Olivet Baptists
therefore decided to combine their pastor's
reception with the observance of the day,
so he and his wife will be escorted direct
from their train to the parki where they
will spend the day getting acquainted
with their new congregation.
Rev. Mr. Mulford has .ben pastor of a
church In Cincinnati for two years. He
succeeds Rev. Frank Ward here, the lat
ter having resigned to take up city mis
sion work with his father at Cedar Rapids,

A record trip from Paris to Omaha was
accomplished by the Diets party, whoae
companions, Joseph Hayden and Miss
Hayden, remained In New York and will
teturn to Omaha Thursday. They crossed
the Atlantic on the Vaterland, the world's
greatest liner. Except for a tog which
delayed, the Immense vessel the entire trip
from Paris to Omaha would have been
completed in exactly seven days.
"We read The Bee In New Zealand,"
Mr. Diets says. "Australia, Tasmania
and all the other out-of-the-way places
were on our Itinerary, so we met no
Omahans abroad except Mr. and Mrs. C.
N. Diets In Paris.
"Australia Is a wonderful country. Tho
utmost hospitality greeted us everywhere.
Americans seem to be even more popular
than Englishmen there. The big Island
continent Is already exporting butter and
beef in large quantities to Vancouver." '

BEING A VOTER DOES NOT
SAVE BOYD FROM SENTENCE
Robert Boyd, colored, was arrested by
two railroad watchmen as a "suspicious
character," hanging about the yards Mon
day night. He put up a fight when taken
and the officers had to show their
weapons to subdue him. In police court
he called officials by their first names
and got familiar.
"Mlstah Fred," he addressed Prosecutor
Anheuser, "I'se a regulah votah on 'lec

TO THE PUBLIC.
TJtlK State of New York, through its Department oi Insurance, has .
completed jtho examination of tho, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company
r n which it is required by .law to- make every three years The Chief
" Examiner, in concluding the report, daids . , '
Vi 'The treatment by this Company of its .policy-holders in the prompt payment of their claims,
' in the voluntary payment of millions of dollars in bonuses, and in its social welfare work are
features of the 'Company's business which deserve commendation."
The Superintendent of- Insurance, the Hon. William Temple Emmet, in
(approving the report, wrote an extended review from which we make extracts i.
THE COMPANY'S GROWTH AND MANAGEMENT.
"The administrative officers of the Company ' have so increased the assets of the
Company as to make these equal the resources of many states and even nations. They have at the
same time steadily cheapened the cost of insurance to policy-holders, both by direct
means and by the distribution of bonuses."
(The report shows that the Company has given back $35,367,293 In bonusea
to Industrial policy-holders In nineteen years.
"They have extended the Company's business to such an extent as to bring it into contact now
with approximately one-eighth of the population of the United States." .
The number of policies outstanding December 31, 1913, was 13,957,748.
"That this notable growth has involved no sacrifice of efficiency in the handling of administrative
details, but, on the contrary, has been the direct result of constantly increasing efficiency, is shown by
the comparatively small losses sustained by the Company in proportion to the large investments made.".
ITS POLICY-HOLDERS SATISFIED.
"The fact that the percentage of lapses due to the abandonment of their insurance by
policy-holders is constantly decreasing, speaks eloquently to the same effect."
The lapse ratio of Industrial policies has decreased 31.7 per cent In eight years.
"This last, mentioned development is perhaps the most convincing evidence which could be
offered that the Company's policy-holders are, broadly speaking, very well satisfied indeed
with what they get in return for the premiums they pay. A very remarkable showing
ITS SOCIAL SERVICE.
"This Company wolfed for no changes in existing law before striking out as a pioneer .
among insurance companies along the pathway of social service on a huge scale. i
"For years it has maintained for its policy-holders a nursing service upon a great scale;
this has latterly become a veritable marvel of efficiency and practical helpfulness
Metropolitan nurses made 1,127,022 visits to sick policy-holders In 1913,
for which the Company paid tho bills.
"Leaving out of consideration the mere numbers of those who have been directly benefited by
these, activities, I think .that the example which the Metropolitan has set to other
great business organizations by its early recognition of the new responsibilities attaching
to all business enterprises which have attained a certain size, is one of the most beneficial
of recent occurrences in the field of American business. For years it has through
its publications upon the question of health conservation .been serving multitudes of people as a
sort of University of beneficial instruction upon this most important subject."
ABREAST OF MODERN THOUGHT.
"This great institution, having so very recently been under our critical scrutiny and presenting
so many admirable illustrations of what an efficient and enlightened modern business organization
on a large scale can do in the way of keeping abreast cf modern thought, seems to be in a position
where I may properly use it as an illustration that private initiative and enterprise are at
their best still capable of doing the finest possible work in fields from which, latterly, all the talk has
been that these agencies should be compelled to retire."
