All Omaha Shorels Snow Byder
Has Hundreds of lien Remov
ing Drifts from Center
of Town.
Commissioner Ryder and his large force
of men sre gradually mnklng the down
town streets passable after the billiard
of Saturday. A few men were out at
work Saturday night with acrapers after
the storm snd larger forces Sunday and
Monday. Ryder estimates that - all the
streets will not be cleared until Thursdsy
Ail Omaha was housed up Saturday so
that residents had considerable of stored
tip energy Saturday nurht and hundreds
cleared their walks that night, although
others waited until Sunday to remove the
heavy drifts so that the women folks
could go to church Sunday morning.
All Pairacres turned out with shovels
Sundsy and cut a path to Dundee so that
autos and pedestrians could make their
way to the beaten paths of that suburb.
Commissioner Ryder had sixty-five
teams with 225 men at work all day
Sunday and these were Increased to 900
men with eighty teams Monday morning.
These ganga will be kept at work until
the snow Is removed.
Tralae oa Time.
The aftermath of tha atorm of Rniurdav
finds the railroads all running their trains
on schedule time, tracks cleared and
buslneaa again normal. According to the
reports to the railroad real blinami
conditions did not extend mors than ISO
miles north and west of Omaha. Inside
that sons and acroaa Iowa and down
Into Kansas the snowfall was from four
to eight Inches snd was light asd drifted
West and north of the 100-mile line
thero was considerable snow and even
out Into Wyoming and Colorado there
wss some, but on account of there being
little wind It lay as It fell.
According to the railroads pretty gen
erally over Nebraska there were snow
flurries Sundsy night, but it wss calm
and mild, temperatures as a rule being
from 20 to 30 degrees above aero, with
Curtis the coldest point In the ststs,
there It being 4 above.
At Present John L Holds Most of the
Offices of the Omaha Com
mercial Club.
That "some men have honors thrust
upon them" Is being substantiated In the
case of John t MeCague, who at this
moment finds himself holding a veritable
hatful of Commercial club honors. What
are they? Well, for the brief space of a
few days he Is all of this president of
the Commercial club, vice president of
the Commercial club, chairman of the
executive committee of that club and
also chairman of Its legislative commit
Rut honors wHI fall from his brow like
leaves In autumn, so that In a very few
days more, ah, perhaps within twenty
four hours, he will stand stripped of all
honors except that of merely being presi
dent of the club. No, he wilt not be
court-martialed. Honors will not be
clipped from him like shoulder straps.
Ills term will simply expire. ,
Per the last year he has been chair
man of the executive committee, and
chairman of the legislative committee.
By virtue of being chairman of the
executive committee he Is also vice
president. Then comes the peculiar cir
cumstance. Last Saturday he was
elected president of the club. .The elec
tion of a new chairman of the executive
committee does not take place until
Tuesday. By the constitution the old
chairman holds office until his succes
sor la elected and qualifies, which clause
makes McCsgue a little of everything at
this moment. Today his successor as
chairman of the executive committee will
be elected. In a few days the legislative
committee wilt meet and elect a new
chairman, which will relieve MeCague of
the duties of these two officer
These is little excitement over the
prospect of a new chairman of the execu
tive committee. Two or three candidates
srs being considered, but the members of
the new committees sre rather loath to
talk about candidates openly for tear of
their withdrawal from the race. The
new committee holds its first meeting
today to elect

The latest
I'rivale lowuua daily.
The New-York Life Is international In Its activities. It hag outstanding business In all the civilized countries ot the world.
You naturally want to know, at first hand, what effect the unprecedented conditions in Europe have had, or many hereafter hare,
on the Company. A correct picture of the whole situation is this:
We have about a million policy-holders in jail the world. Eighty per cent, of the total live in the United
States and Canada. The remainder, twenty per cent, are scattered over the rest of the world. They are located large
ly in Europe, including both the belligerent and the neutral countries. Their age, on the average, is about forty-seven.
In this, as in all wars, the heavy mortality falls on youth, young men averaging about twenty-two stand on the firing
In Russia, Sen' I a and Japan our policy provisions protect us fully against all war risk. In Great Britain we have done little
business for ten years and the age of our Insured reduces the war risk to the vanishing point.
Our war risk, therefore, Is practically limited to Germany, France, Belgium and Austria-Hungary. In all of these countries pol
icies issued prior to 1899 carry a clause which substantially eliminates the war risk.
Of the policies issued at a later date there were In iforce In these countries at the outbreak of hostilities about 15.600, held by
men whose attained age--that la the present age waa between seventeen and thirty-nine inclusive about IM of our membership.
We estimate the number of policies outstanding in these four countries on the lives of men between seventeen and thirty and
having no clause limiting the war risk, at 2,600, representing not more than 2,400 lives, or about ?4 of one per cent, of our membership.
1 Our death losses incurrd in 1914, including an extra reserve of $500,000 for losses probably incurred but not
reported, were 73 of the amount provided in the premiums for the mortality of that year. In 1913, when we had
no war claims, our morality was also 73 of the amount provided. In 1912 it was 76.
The total war losses actually incurred to December 31, 1914, including the countries where our risk is abund.
antly covered by policy conditions or otherwise, according to information obtained by both letter and cable, amounted
to a little less than 2 of the total death losses for the year.
Yon may have been told that the Company would suffer because of its foreign investments. This is not true. Our foreign in
vestments, limited as they sre to Government Bonds and high grade municipals, have naturally fallen in price, but sot appreciably more
than domestic securities.
No security issued by or in any country engaged in this war and held by us is in default of either principal
or interest.
If the same statement with regard to American securities could be made by this and other American Life Insurance Companies,
as well as by our Hospitals, Universities, snd by Trustees generally, the financial outlook would be brighter.
There is no reason to believe that we shall ever lose a dollar, principal or interest, on our foreign invest-
The greatest single effect of the war oa the New-York Life is to demonstrate, as perhaps no other condition could, not merely
the Company's strength, but its social usefulness.
Since August first last, the Company has administered an extent of practical beneficence which surpasses
the limits of exact statement.
in spite of unprecedented difficulties difficulties which have actually destroyed a large part of the commence of the world, dis
arranged international credits, and shattered international relations w have met every obligation and satisfied every just claim. After
the first period of strangulation of credit passed, we disregarded all moratoria or other governmental decrees under which we might have
postponed payments to policy-holders or beneficiaries. ,
Since the first of August we have advanced money to policy-holders as loans on their policies as follows:
' ire. of Xrfans Amount of XoeBt
In the United Stacs and Canada 49,275 $14,256,565
In Europe 7,498 2,965,040
In other foreign countries 2,314 660,410
Policy-holders st home have been helped la about the same proportion to outstanding insurance that has ruled in Europe. We
have all felt the war here most keenly. No considerable business has escaped.
It has been the good fortune ot our membership to relieve suffering humanity, without charity, over a wider portion of the earth
than evr before perhaps to a degree never before equaled by any human Institution.
In life insurance as exemplified by the New-York Life thero is more than the germ of that world federation
of peoples by which alone this European Horror can be so ended that it will never be repeated.
There have been years In which the New-York Life did more business than in 1914, but there has never been a year In which It
did so much good.
The company eaters into the year 1915 with its resources not only unimpaired but Increased, with its assets liquid and available
as against every contingency. '
We have Issued our Report for 1914 in condensed form and during the calander year it will be sent to policy-holders generally.
It will be sent to anyone on request.
