BRING UP SUFFRAGE QUESTION School Ilonril Memtirra Mny Hnve to Decide Whether or Not Suf frage In n rolltlrnt Clnmtlou. Members of Improvements clung declare that H. C. Compton's demand upon the Board of Education to forbid meetings in pudiic scnooi uuuuings la a move, prompted by F. V, Fitch of the Fcder ated Improvement clubs, from which sev eral large Improvement clubs which use the public schools for meeting places have withdrawn. Recently Fitch was repudiated by sev eral Improvement clubs and his reslsna tlon demanded. Compton's demand, It Is 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 the matters usually considered by im provement clubs.

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, la. DIETZ PARTYISHOME AGAIN New Animals Will Arrive in Omaha Later On.

Oet a nice cool room for the summer. A boxing match by kangaroos at the Ak-Sar-Ben den has become a possibility this summer, with .the return of Gould Diet's from Australia and a trip around the world. He arrived home yesterday, with Mrs. Diets and her mother, Mrs. Amanda Putnam of Lincoln. Something new In the way of menag eries is hinted at by the traveler, who Intimates that subjects of good King Ak may have a chance to put on the gloves with an Australian kangaroo before the summer Is over. Animals which he se cured on his 35,000-mlte trip will arrive later. 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.

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 tion day an" "Never mind that, talk to the Judge, he's running for office again," exclaimed the prosecutor.

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. -A 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 altogether.' 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." ,r Assets, 8447,829,229.00 Inabilities, $414,244,327.51 Largest amount of insurance in force of any company in the world $2,816,504,462.00 Metropolitan Life Insurance Company - (IacorportUd by tts SUU of tftw Yoxk.
