UNION STOCKYARDS. INDIANAPOLIS,
March 17. Hogs The hog market received an
other hard Jolt to-day. and prices are in ju'.te a
different position compared with yesterday.- The
receipts wrf r.ct large, but ample, and with very
little Inquiry from shippers at the start it was
Certain prices wcull be lower. Another thing
ccntrlhutlr.g to a weaker market was the fact
that prices here for severs I day have teen out
of line as compared with those prevailing In tur
ronnIlr.fr markets. The billing from the start

considered rather unreasonable by a!'Hmtn. They
were handlccrp'd, however, In every war, an d

Usual on a market of this klrvl, sale were not.
t uniform prices, and were generally reported
anywhere from 10c to 20c lower than yesterday,
vrtth meet mles showing at least lc decline.
After buying mrt of the morning receipts pack

able to advance any argument that would per
suade them to come into the market again, and
rlth no additional criers Irom outside sources
the cloring market was flat. Several loads, pos

Cattle Th cattle market to-day. especially so
far as the steers are concerned, was irregular,
because it Is rarely that there Is much difference
between the. opinions of salesmen as there was
to-day. Several. In fact probably a majority of
the . dealers, were Inclined to quote the market
a lout steady compared with yesterday, but a
number believed they were forced to accept a
trifle lower prices, especially for the steers that
wre r.ot well up to the standard in quality and
finish. There were also isolated ca. In which
a shade higher prices were realized than were
offered for the same cattle yesterday. There
fore, it would be very difficult, indeed, to make a
reiKirt that would be satisfactory to all,' A re
view of the representatire sales Indicate that the
market we.s In much the Fame condition as yes
terday, but. in sympathy with the situation else
where. It would not be unjust to sav that the
tendency In affairs Is weaker. At least it is
evident that buyers are more particular In mak
ing their selections. This makes the market less
eatisfactory to the selling- side. There was also
a very quiet market for Storkers and feeding cat
tle to-day and there was very little country de
mand, the business being generally transa?ted
with professional buyers. The market for female
butcher cattle was reported steady by all deal
ers, and the calf market was also at least steady
compared with ypteriay. Sales of bulla do not

Following the very destructh'e ßres that
have occurred in state Institutions recently,
of which the. loss of the Wisconsin state
Capitol building was the most serious, a
number of States which have been carrying
but little insurance on their public prop
erty as a measure of economy are now au
thorizing the placing of liberal lines with
Insurance companies. Colorado was one of
those which were saving money in this way,
but, a few days ago the board in charge of
her Capitol building ordered that ?500,uuo be
written on the property.
The question as to whether the term
"noon," which appears In fire insurance
policies, Is to be taken as solar or standard
time Is one which upon Occasions has been
of great Importance. Fires have occurred
so close to the time of the expirations of
policies involved that the question of de
termining the liability of the companies in
terested has been taken into the courts. The
desirability of determining once for all
what "noon" means is conceded. Insur
ance Commissioner Dearth, of Minnesota,
has mied that "noon" 43 his State must be
considered solar time.
Some of the smaller companies, which
were-forced to the wall by the Baltimore
fire, now claim that they would have been
able to weather the storm if they had not
been forced to make a public statement so
soon after the fire by a number of the
State insurance departments. Had they
been given a little time, they claim, they
could have repaired their weakened condi
tion and re-established themselves on a
sound basis. Although the investigation
by the State officials was doubtless a wise
precaution, it is to be regretted that any
companies were thus forced to retire which
might have continued, for the amount of
underwriting capital now engnged in the
business is not adequate' to care for all
the Insurance offered.
Wildcat fire Insurance companies will con
tinue to thrive in spite of law and publicity.

ed by one of the Chicago breed was un
earthed the other day. An advirtisement
appeared in the papers asking that ownert
of unproductive real estate worth JloO.C
who wanted to do something with it to
communicate with the address given. In
vestigation discovered that it was inserted
by u concern which wanted to start a wild
cat insurance company with a West Vir
ginia charter to operate from Chicago. In
stead of following the usual plan of imag
ining itself possessed of a lot . of assets
and making no pretense of having them,
it wanted to "make a showing in order to
get a favorable report from commercial
agencies. Its proposition was that the own
er of the real estate should mortgage it for
$l'w,iX, and turn over the mortgages to
the insurance company, to be used as a
basis for assets. After a favorable report
had be,en secured from the commercial
agencies the mortgage was to be returned
to the owner of the real estate, and he was
to be relieved from all further liability.
One can imagine the probability of secur
ing payment for a lire loss from a concern
that would undertake such devious meth
ods to establish mythical assets.
There are many reforms being Inaugu
rated in the methods of securing business
on the part of some of the larger life in
surance companies. One of the latest of
evil practices to fall under the ban is that
of so-called "flyer" insurance. The business
getting methods of some companies gave
rise to a habit 5n the part of some men
who carried large policies to go about each
year looking for bargains. Life insurance
should not cost one person more than It
docs another, but competition became so
fierce that a number of the companies
sought these largo policies by offering to
write them at absurdly low rates. Rivalry
year by year grew so bitter that at times a
man was able to obtain his insurance for 1
year almost as a gift. It is readily seen
that such a practice must prove disastrous
to the companies engaged In it. The men
who availed themselves of the "flyer" priv
ileges were shrewd business men, and they
usually made sure that they could pass a
medical examination before they gave up
their policy in one company to take a bar
gain in another. Naturally, when they
tound that their health was impaired and
that they couJd no longer satisfy the med
ical man that they would be good risks,
they would give up the "flyer" practice and
stick to the company in which they hap
pened to hold a policy at the time. This re
sulted in what is known to life insurance
men as a bad selection. The companies that
sold "flyer' insurance in their greed for
volume found that they were loading up
with a lot of undesirable business, and in
recent years they have been called upon to
pay out large sums on just this class of
business. They begin to realize that it is
time to discourage the practice, and it is
quite Utting that the call for a halt comes
from one of those which was largely re
sponsible for. the establishment of "Ilyers."

As to fire losses for February, the Jour
nal of Commerce and Commercial Bulletin
says: "Fire loss in the United States and
Canada for February, as compiled by our
carefully kept records, aggregated the ex
traordinary sum of $90,051,000. The follow
ing table gives a comparison of losses for
the first two months of the year for the
same period in 1902 and 1903:
1902. 1903. 1904
January $13.(-22,$00 J13.166.350 J21.790.200
February 21,010,500 16,090,800 90,051,000
Totals . .$36,043,200 $29,257,150 $fll,S41,200
"A startliiigly large amount is chargeable
against February, due to the Baltimore con
flagration, which was Bwelled by the loss in
Rochester. The Baltimore fire was a ter
rific blow to the fire insurance companies,
bankrupting or crushing out most of 4he
Baltimore institutions and forcing a number
of companies in other States to retire from
business. The fire insurance companies as
a whole, however, make a strikingly credit
able showing. Their lines, in accordance
with their financial strength and loss ad
justments, are being promptly and liberally
made. That the demonstrations will not be
lost upon the political demagogues in vari
ous States, who make insurance more costly
by passing legislation hostile to insurance
interests, is much to be hoped. Fire insur
ance will be cheaper if buyers of it make a
determined fight against the harassing and
blackmailing operations of legislators and
lower grade insurance commissioners.
Every tax of a burdensome requirement
laid upon an insurance company makes the
furnishing of an indemnity more expensive
and increases the cost to policy holders.
Abolishing extravagantly administered and
worthless state Insurance departments in
the West would make insurance cheaper,
besides preventing many scandals due to
crookedness of state insurance officials."

A RECEIVER APPOINTED
TEVMISSHE CCMHAL PLACED IX
THE HANDS OF THE COIUTS.
C, II. A. I). Contemplate Rig: Im
provciiient nt Toledo Like Shore's
Upon application of M. N. Elkan & Co.. of
South Carolina, subcontractors, in a suit
filed in the Chancery Court of Roane coun
ty, at Kingston, Tenn., yesterday, W. J. Ol
iver, of Knoxville, was appointed receiver
of the Tennessee Central Railroad, which
runs from Harriman, Tenn., to Hopkins
ville, Ky., by wpy of Nashville. Elkan
& Co. sue for. a balance of $44,000, which
they claim is due for extending the road
from Emory Gap to Harriman. The; bill
charges that the road has failed to fully
pay the Callahan Construction Company, of
Knoxville, for building the line between
Lebanon and Nashville, and also that i.t
has failed to pay W. J. Oliver & Co., con
tractors of Knoxville, about $300,000 balance
said to be due for building the road from
Nashville to Hopkinsville. The -bill also
charges that there are many other liabili
ties aggregating more than $2.000,000.- It is
also set out that the Callahan Construction
Company and W. J. Oliver &. Co. are
proceeding by separate suits in. Davidson
and Montgomery counties, Tennessee, ' to
enforce their contractors' liens by separate
sale of portions of the road. The bill filed
yesterday seeks to preserve and sell the
road as an entirety, from Harriman to Hop
kinsville, and also to obtain priority for
the contractors who built the road. The
receivership is now effective. The receiver
was named by Chancellor J. W. Snecd, of
C, II. & I). Improvement nt Toledo.
The statement is made by the Toledo
Blade that the Cincinnati, Hamilton &
Dayton has completed arrangements for
the erection of a new passenger depot at
Toledo in the vicinity, of the old Burnett
House. The C, H. & D. long since rec
ognized the necessity of having a depot of
its own at Toledo and has coveted as the
site the ground "where the Burnett House
stands and its immediate vicinity. To
ward this end work was begun some time
ago and private property was gradually
absorbed. The last deal was closed this
week, by which tho C, IL & D. secured
control of all the desirable property back
of the Burnett House. Work is expected
to begin on this new project this sum
mer. Plans for the building and tunnel
are being made in Cincinnati. Under pres
ent arrangements the C. H. & D. enters
Toledo over tho Lake- Shore through the
Union Depot. The C. H. & D. has no line
to Detroit, traffic arrangements being made
through the Michigan Central. It is un
der stood that these traffic arrangements
will be continued for a Detroit outlet, but
that traffic arrangements.will be made with
the Pennsylvania, which controls the line
along the river front, whereby C, H. & D.
passenger trains can be delivered to the
Terminal Belt north of the city and thence
run out over the Michigan Central to
Detroit. This would be a much more prac
tical route than the circuitous line by which
the C, H. & D. connects with the Michigan
Central under present arrangements.
Lake Shore's Illgr Earnings.
The increase of Lake Shore earnings for
1003 over the preceding year was $4,423,000,

year amounted to $CC,733,000. an increase of
nearly $10.000.0(0 durintr the last two vpon
The figures show that the Lake Shore now
owns neuriy i,uw,wu more stocks and
bonds of other companies than its "entire
capital stock. The heavy increase in the
amount of securities owned bv the com

chases of the Pllladelnhia & flen nintr nnrf

purchases the other Income of the Lake

Justice John M. Harlan, of the United
States Supreme Court," was in Baltimore
on Wednesday and in conversation said he
could not add anything bearing on the fa
mous Northern Securities case other than
that contained in the decision. He added:
"I gave the evidence conscientious consid
eration, viewing every point carefully and
overlooking nothing of moment. The case
was an important one, and will no doubt
be used as a precedent for other cases to
come before the Supreme Court I dis
charged my duty to the best of my ability,
and hope it will be considered as right and
just, as I intended it should be."

items have been for drinks, suppers and
other expenses incurred in preserving policy.
This reform is in line with a general rule
