WEDNESDAY, OCf. 9, 1889.
Trial or Albrrt 1ooineii ror Trrnunn.
Tokbdat, October 8lh.
At 3 :10 p.m. the Attornoy-Guneral
opened thu case for tug Crown stat
ing that the crime of treason, which
the defendant wa charged with, was
a moat serious one, the only punish
ment upon conviction being death.
After uiving the statutory definition
of tieason, ho went on in a very
lucid manner and outlined the evi
dence that the Crown intended to
present before the Jury. There was
a feeriou1 responsibility upon tho
Jury, for the life of the defendant
hung in the balance.
The first witness called was Rob
ert N. Boyd, who was accommodat
ed with a seat in tlio witness stand.
The Attorney-General said that as
the question of Uoyd's competence
jb a witness might be questioned
(he being held mi a charge of trea
son), he would file n certificate to
ehow that he did not intend to pre
sent nn indictment ngaiii9t Hoyd. '
The certificate was filed with the
Clerk of tho Court, His Honor slat
ing that it was a statutory right the
Attorney-General could cseicise.
Itobert N. Isoyd sworn, staled:
Am a native Hawaiian. Was born
in Honolulu. Am i.'6 years of age.
The .natives call me Napunako.
Was in Italy about llvo years. lie
turned a little more than two years,
since the present government was in
ofllec. Was studying in a Naval
Acadeny in Italy, sent there by the
Hawaiian Government. Know R.
W. Wilcox. Saw him in Italy, he
was studying in the army. He re
turned before I did. I heard of his
leaving here for the coast with his
wile. I was at Kohala at tho time.
I saw him when he came back this
year. I was employed ns civil en
gineer by Mr. Gribble. I know ihe
defendant. His name is Loomens.
I first met him at Iwilei, at the first
meeting of tho secret society. Can
not remember the date. It was af
ter tho Kamehauieha RiQo As
sociation was formed. It must
have been in June some time. The
place of meeting is right opposito
the prison, near II. Kuia's honse.
Do not jinow who lived thero. I
was invited by R. W. Wilcox, he did
not tell me the purpose. He invited
me at my home on Punchbowl street.
Ho simply told me mere was going
to be a secret meeting. He talked
Italian to mo besides English and
Hawaiian. He invited mo three
days before the meeting took placo.
He told me the date. I went with
Wilcox to the meeting, met him at
his office and went from thero. It
was In the evening, a little before
dark. We left for Inilei about 7
o'clock. When we got there there
were several persons outside, could
not see who they were owing to the
dark. I went luside tho room with
"Wilcox, it was not a largo room.
I saw Albert Loomens there, Lucca
(witness pointed him out in Court),
also three sailors white men, and
two other white men. If I was to
see them could recognize them.
They were Italians. Two of the
sailors were Italians, tho other a,
German. Wo all sat down in the
room nnd Wilcox read a consti
tution. It jvas a constitution
for a secret society, and was
written by himself in n little
black book. The door was open.
He read it in English. Wc did not
all understand English. Thero was
conversation in Italian. I under
stood the constitution to mean that
as the native Hawaiian? had had their
rights taken awa-, Wilcox proposed
to jjet them back and those of tl'ie
King, and overthrow the Miniatty.
Evcryono present swore under that
constitution. Wilcox administered
the oath in English. I swore to it
while being seated. It said if any
one wcro to expose the constitution
he should suffer death at the handy
of the others. Loomens took the
oath. I do not remember anything
else in the oath. Do not know tho
names of the Italian sailors. Talked
with them in that language. Wilcox
introduced mo to Loomens. Nothing
else was done at that meeting with
the exception of the election of two
oiricers, R. W. Wilcox, President,
and Albert Loomoms, Vice-President.
The meeting eleolcd them.
1 was a stranger to Loomens. I do
not think I voted for a Vice-President.
Wilcox told me that Loometi9
was an energetic man. The meet
ing lastod noarly an hour. It was
agreed we should meet the follow
ing Sunday on tho top of Punoh
bowl. It was understood and ugrced
upon at tho first meeting that wo
should get means to carry out this
project. The means meant money
to get ammunition and arms to take
force in favor of tho constitution
ugainst tho present government.
The object was to overthrow tho
Ministers. We met on Punchbowl
tho following Sunday aftoinoou
about 4 o'clock. All those at the
fl:t meeting were present. Wo mot
in a little house on Punchbowl near
tho flagpole. We went Inside, thero
was no one in tho house. At that
meeting tho principal discussion was
about means. Thero was nothing
satisfactory done about the manner
of getting the moans. Wo were
thsro about half an hour and then
dispersed. Loomens was at tho
Punchbowl mooting, Wo did not
go all together, but met there, all
Oft foot. After th meeting I met
Chan. Wilder of tho Stars up there
nnd conversed with him nbout n
basebnll game played tho day bc
foic. We had further meetings. It
was arranged to meet at Princess
Liliuokalani's Palama residence
Wo did so a few days nfter tho
Punchbowl meeting. Wilcox told
moot l ho meeting. Wc went be
tweon 8 and 0 o'clock in the even
ing. I went alono and got in to the
Princess' residence from the King
street gate. I went in to Wilcox's
room nnd was llrst there (photo
graphs of the locality wero here in
troduced by ihe Attorney-General,
the wltnesi pointing out the room
used ly Wilcox). I saw the other
members there that night, they
camo between 8 nrtd 9 o'clock. Do
not remember who cnine first. Tho
same parlies were Hhto ni at the
llrst mooting at twilrt. Loomens
was there. Wo hold the meeting in
Princess Llliubknlani's dining room.
Tho waiter of means came up again.
Meeting did not last long. Wo de
cided to meet again. It was less
than a week after that we did meet
again in tho Princess' dining room
Till was tho fourth meeting. The
members were nil present except
one Italian sailor who was sick. Loo
mens was there. Wilcox Btatcd he
was able to get the means to carry
oiit the project, but did not give
particulars to the members. Do
not rrmember anything said in favor
or against. What was ."aid seemed
to me to satisfy those present. The
meeting lasted not more than an
hour. Thero was discussion during
the meeting. Tho llfth meeting was
tho uno nl which the natives came
in. It was hold in the Princess'
dining room the day before the sixth
meeting. The President had all to
do with tho natives coming in.
I got notice of the fifth meeting from
Wilcox. I went thero at 8 o'clock
and saw Wilcox. Loomens came.
Lucca, and one of the threo sailois
were there. Waiwai wai there, ho
whs killed In the riot. Keki, J. M.
Pocpoe, G. Mnrkhain, Thos. P.
Spencer, David Crowningberg wero
present. Theie were fifteen alto
gether. Malulani nud Kaiuo wero
there. F. J. Testa camo to the sixth,
also W. II. Cumrnings. They wero
not there at the llfth. A Chinaman,
Ho Eon, editor of tho Chinese news
piper, was there. At tho meeting
Wilcox wanted to carry out his pro
ject that night. Ho had thirtoen
rifles out there. Wilcox told those
present it could be carried out oven
with their small number. All the
natives took tho oath. It was the
same organization as formed at Iwi
lei. The natives look same oath as
wo did. I saw the thirteen guns.
They were in Wilcox's room. It is
u fen paces from the dining room.
Wilcox was dressed that evening in
his Italian uniform. There was a
Sharp, Winchester and Springfield
rifle among the number, also some
ammunition. The reason they could
not go ahead thut night was because
our number was too small to carry
out the project. The purpose was
to go to the Palace and got tho King
to sign a constitution. Wilcox was
to proclaim hinm-lf as dictator, rio
clarc martial law, turn out this
Ministry, appoint his own Minis
ters, and afterwards give the King
back his power. Wa intended using
tho guns to carry out that project.
AVe protected tho becreey of the
meetings by placing guards outside.
They wero equipped. I was a
guard and carried a revolver. Geo.
Mnrkhain was also a guard. At the
fifth meeting Loomens spoke, say
ing be thought tho natives were not
treated right and that ho sympa
thized with l hem. He sat next to
Wilcox at the meeting. Tho meet
ing lasted until quite late. J. T.
Raker was not at the fifth meeting.
Wc met again the day after, at 8
o'cloi-k in tho evening. Baker was
there, he came late, about two
o'clock in the morning. Alex.
Smith came for tho first time. Wil
cox and Loomens were there, also
F. .7. Testa and W. II. Cuininings.
Testa and Cumrnings did not want
to swear to the constitution. Baker
took the oath. J. M. Poepoe talked,
he was in favor of the project being
carried out that night. We had now
fifteen guns. The rest objected, he
cause they wero insulllcient in num
ber. Ho Fon was there again with
five other Chinese. One of thorn
look the oath, it was Papu. Tho
project of going to tho Palaoo was
deferred thut night until further
notice. Baker said he was going '
home two days later to Hllo and
would bo back tho following week
and help in cairyingout the project.
All of us saw the fifteen guns. Ho
Fon looked at them. They were in
a little room off the dining room.
It now being live o'clock tho Attorney-General
suggested an ad
journment to Wednesday raorniug.
His Honor said to the jury that
tho oaae wlia of so much importance,
that the Jury would have to be
separated from their families for the
night. Tho jury was given hi
charge of Deputy Marshal Hopkins
and quartered in the Hawaiian Ho
tel for the night.
At 5:05 tho Court adjourned to
0 :3() o'clock Wednesday morning.
Wednesday, Oct. 9th.
The Court opened at 0 :30 a. m.
Tho examination of Robert N. Boyd
was continued as follows : In think
ing ocr tho matter sinco yesterday
I find I made two or threo mistakes,
Tho date of tho fifth meeting was
tho 10th of July and tho sixth meet
ing on the lith. John T. naker
left for Uio on tho 12lh. Ho nt
tended tho sixth mooting. With re
gard to Otimwinje and Tostn, thoy
BAi&T BTOBfETItN": BCKSOTvCTiV, H. L,
were thero at tho fifth nisoUng.
Tast.1 and Cummliigs refined to
take the oath. The meeting which
Rukur attended lasted until U o'clock
in the morning. Ha did not reach
there until 2 o'clock. Tho piopoii
tion to go to tho palace was voted
down. Tho meeting dispersed and
no arrangement was made about fu
ture meeting. We met again July
20th and carried out the project on
the 30th. I know Jim Kauhano.
On the night of July Ulh he was at
tho meeting. Between the 11th and
29tU of July I was at my mother's
placo In tho country. There wcro
no meetings between these dates. I
came up from tho country on July
27ih and went to stay with Wilcox
at Palama. The meeting commenc
ed nbout 7 o'clock in the evening of
the 2Uth. I saw Loomens on the
28th outside in a llttlu lano near
where Wilcox was liv'ng. Ho call
ed Wilcox and tho latter went to
him. I said good morning to him.
Ho w:m there about half an hour
and then went back to town. I nct
saw him on tho evening of tho 20th
about S o'clock and handed him a
bulldog revolver. (Revolver pro
duced in Court, witness said it was
like tho one ho gave him.) I gave
the revolver to Loomens in Wilcox's
bedroom. Wilcox had moved his
quaiters lo some outbuildings. T
g.ive Loomens some cartridges. The
pistol wa3 not loaded when I gave it
to him. I was in that room until
nearly 10 o'clock. Wilcox told mo
to give out the red stints, guns and
caps to the men. At 10 o'clock I
went to tho Princess's dining-ioom.
There was a ciowd of seventy peo
ple present. Poepoe and Wilcox
spoke. I saw Loomcna again before
we went down 'town, it was just
when we were preparing; he had a
lantern in I113 hand. Ho went down
behind me. We were nil nrranged
in two lines near the banyan tree.
The first squad was to go with the
Captain (Kaaha) and a lieutenant.
Tho second squad to go with Alex.
Smith and his lieutenant. Mahaulu
was to go with the third squad. I
went with tho first squad, Loo
mens was right behind me.
The men wore equipped with rifles
and rice bird guns loaded
with shot. I loaded some, so did
Alox. Smith. The caps weio given
to the squad. The Fquads followed
one another. Tho object of loading
the guns was to u?e forco in case of
necessity. The lino of inarch started
between 3 and 4 o'clock. We came
through the middle gnta to King
street, along King to Richards, up
Richards stiect to Palacs Walk. I
saw some policemen put into the
squad. The first one was taken at
Maunakea street, Wilcox held him
up. Loomens was still behind me.
This policeman was put in the squad
ahead of me. Wilcox hold tho
others up. On arriving at the Palace
gate I did not notice Loomens, there
was como confusion. The soldier
at the gats would not open it. I
saw a man go over the gale The
guard challenged us, but when he
found it was Wilcox he went away.
Orders wero given by Wilcox at the
gate to load. The man who wont
over the gato opened it and we
marched in. Between 70 and 80
matched with us ; they wore all armed
cither with rillc3 or pistols. There
were So rilles and Sp rice bird gnus.
When we got in the Palace yard we
formed in two lines behind the
Palace. 1 saw Loomens a little after
we got in talking with Wilcox. I
left them and went to the gashouse
with Markham. The men wero all
in line. Wilcox palled out fo Robl.
Parker and asked him who was in
charge of the Palace. Tho most of
the men tood m liuo until daylight.
It whs a long timo afterwards when
wc got the guns in position. I did
not see Loomens again that da'.
The last time I saw him was a littlo
before daylight. Wilcox went
several times to the barracks to 6ce
Kahalewai. lie got the cannons in
position. Tho cannons wero got out
after 1 saw Loomens talking witli
Wilcox. Wilcox put mo in com
mand of the cannon ou the Ewa
side. 1 was not there nil tho time,
as I wont over to the cannon facing
Likelike street which Markham had
charge of. There woie two other
cannons. I once went and got a
loaf of bread. Tho King did not
come thero. We heard a row on
the outside and Wilcox saw a litle
man, and I heard tho report of a
gun. I heard Wilcox tell tho natives
to go and catch tho rifleman and
bring him in the yard. Ho said,
"liopu i kela haolo!" I was in front
of the Palace when he was brought
in. His name was Sohutnaii. Wilcox
came up and spoke with him. I
heard that the Rifles were surround
ing the Palace ymd and I saw the
window of the Music Hall comedown.
We saw men there. Wilcox called
out to them to shut tho window
or he would lire the cannon. They
rofused, for directly afterwards ho
fired the cannon. I saw a guard nt
the makai gate. When Wilcox saw
them firing from tho Musio Hall nt
me ho left and went under a tree.
Directly afterwards I was iliot in
the leg. When they fired at us, wo
knew that it meant a challenge Wo
could not converse, for tho shot was
falling fast. I bound my leg with a
handkei chief. I triod to shoot the
gun again but it did not go off and I
got hit in the head and lay senseless
for a limo. One curious thing wa3
how I was shot in tho head, it must
havo been from tho direction of Ka
waiahao Church. I was confused
when I got shot, as I was covered
with blood. I went through tho
Palace and then to tho bungalow. I
saw a. boldier lu tho Palace, he did
not challenge me. Whllo I was at
my enfiuoti 1 did not tiotlco what tho
I others weio doing. Markham I saw
about half an hour before the war
commenced, and then not again un
til later in tho hospital. I heard
cannons firing but did not know
which they were. I was the last
one to leave my cannon. In the
bungalow, after a while, Wilcox
came In and said lie was sorry 1 was
shot. He asked mo to take the
photograph of his wifo nnd littlo
duughtcr. I told him I was more of
a dend man than he. Ho was not
wounded. I saw Mahaulu and
Gabriel there. Wilcox wns in tho
bungnlow looking very blue. I staid
there until the surrehder. 1 was
compelled to lie down. While 1
was in the bungnlow I tow Wilcox
moving nbout ; he appeared to have
lost nil hope. lie was dressed in
uniform and carried a rifle. Tho
others in the bungalow had lilies.
Towards evening tho conditions in
tho bungalow were rather danger
ous. Dynamite bombs wero thrown
on the building nnd bullets were fly
ing thickly. Mnlwulu and others
were dodging tho bullet. They
did no! use their rifles I heard
Mahaulu cry out penec, and ho got
his handkerchief and put it out of a
window, it was flrcd nt. Gabriel
placed a hankerchief nt the end of
n broom and went downstairs.
That is tho last I saw. It took us
a long time to find tho breech
blocks in the morning. They were
in the ixaskouse, we lifted life door
off its hinges. Found ammunition
there. We used the ammunition
for the guns. There was perhaps
.100 boxes of ammunition in the gas
house, (1 to 8 rounds in a box.
Cross-examined by Mr. Rosa: I
knew Wilcox had confidence in me
and I in hiin. I have lost confi
dence in him now. My reason for
taking pait in the affair was that I
was sent away to be educated to
Italy, succeeded in my examination
and got ray diploma. When I came
bad: here 1 was simply a street va
gabond. I applied to tho govern
ment for a position, thej offered me
an inferior one. 1 was driven to
despair. 1 did not want to hurt the
King or Government. I did not
want the Ministers out. The pal.ice
was our rendezvous, because there
we could procure arms. We know
cannon weio there. Wilcox with his
popularity among the natives
thought he could accomplish hid ob
ject of hecoming dictator and then
place tho King in his rights after.
He told me ho thought the King was
weak and he would proclaim himself
dictator and placo the town under
martial l.iw. Wilcox did not take
any action on tho palace. After I
was wounded I went thiough the
palace without resistance. I do not
know of any resistance by the
King's soldiers. I will not swear
that I saw Loomens enter the palace
yard. I saw him inside tulking with
Wilcox before daybreak. I know
Loomens was armed, for I gave
him a. pistol nt Pthuiiii. I know
where he lied, it was on King street
opposite the California Fruit Maikot.
I can swear that Loomens was with
us all the way from Palama to tho
palace gate. Thero was confusion
there and I lost sight of him. Wc
took several policemen in on our
way. I did notlovel a pistoPnt any
of the polioo. I did not level a pis
tol at Testa or anyone else. I did
not get a singio ninn there at tho
meetings, did not decoy them. I
did say that I daro go to the palaeo
with 15 men. It is moro honorable
to die in a fight than to take onc'a
own life. Wo might have .succeed
ed with fifteen men where wc failed
with a larger number. One reason
I havo turned state's ovidenco is
that I did not show I was a coward.
Wilcox when tho firing commenced
left mo alone nnd I say I lost pa
triotism right on the edge of my
grave. Tho object when we came
down was to take tho palaeo. I was
told that the others belonging to the
party had been ranking statements
the day after they were arrested. I
was instructed by my counsel not
to say anything. I was told if I
gave state evidence I would be let
free. The Attorney-General told
me so nt tho prison in September.
I Intel no object when I camo hero to
overthrow tho King, it was to over
throw Uio Ministers. Wo should have
succeeded if Wilcox had taken the"
Palace, proclaimed martial law, etc.
I mado un attempt to flic from tho
Palaeo yard, because they were
shooting at us from the Music Hall.
The first shot from thero hit me.
Tho cannons were stationed in tho
Palace yard so that if wo took tho
Palaeo wo could protect it. The
King wns not in the Palace, ho did
not como thete that day. Theie
wan no discussion nt our meetings
against overthrowing the King. Wo
could have got away with .the four
Ministers, but they had n' force to
back them up. Wo hoped to get the
Ministers out by carrying out our
project. If wo lutd proclaimed
martial law we would Imu tried to
takp tho town. I heard Wilcox my
ho had propularily enough to get the
natives with him. I did hear Wil
cox say that no ono was lo bo shot.
He .said ho did not think thero would
be any fighting, only nn afliay. Tho
secret society was n society with a
constitution, which spoke of tho
getting back the rights of tho people
and King. Wo freely dUeussed tho
idea of putting tho Ministers out,
and that was tho object ol the o
oiety. At the Punchbowl moeting
we discussed tho way of getting
moans. Loonioni was'at the third
and bulutquent meetings. It nan
at the fifth meeting when, Loomens
made remarks about sympathizing
.with tlio uatlvos. He was btlllVicc-
.03OBBR a, 1899.
"President. The society hnd no
i'occiui uuiiie. xi wu j uut me nine
Association At the meeting on the
29th I did not level a pistol at Loo
mens nor did I hear him say he
was tired nnd wanted togctout. On
the line of march I canicd a pistol
I in my hnnd, had no other arms. It
I wa9 not in my hand for the purpose j
I ot snooting down anyone who lelt
tho ranks. The papers called me
first lieutenant. Tho only time I
saw Loomens in the Palace yard was
when ho wns talking with Wilcox.
Did nol sec htm go out. I saw pro
visions brought In the yard by the
Cliinntnan Papu. 1 noticed water
melons and a barrel of poi. I did
not go to the burrncks. Wilcox
went thete with a qtiad. Ho gave
me the primers. Did not see nuy
in the gashouse. I heard the other
guns firing, do tint know who fired
them. No other promise w.t3 mado
mo at the time of tho promise, that
I would not he prosecuted. No pro
miso of a government situation was
mado to me. 1 served about a
couple of months in government
scrioe. 1 left because I could not
keep my family on 850 a month. I
afterwards worked for Mr. Gribble.
Tho guard at, the gate on King street
was a Wilcox man ns lie did npt
have a uniform on.
By the Court Wilcox spoke to
Parker at the left hand side of the
Palace steps. By putting the Min
isters out, it was intended to get the
King to make them resign.
Geoigo Markham sworn, btaled:
I was born on Maui. Am 27 years
of age. Have lived in Honolulu the
past six years. Held olllco for
some time in Custom House. 1
know the defendant. His nnmo is
Albert i.ooniens. Met him first on
the 10th of July at tho residence of
Princess Liliuokalani. Wilcox ask
ed mo there to n lunti. 1 went there
between 7 and 8 in the evening. I
saw Wilcox, Loomens, Lucca, an
other foreigner, Kaiue, Malulani,
F. J. Testa, W. II. Cumrnings, J.
M. Poepoe, Wniwai (killed on the
IlOth), another native with a squint
eye, who is since dead. Think I
haw Ho Fon, also later Boyd, Thos.
Sponccr, and David Crowningberg.
Thoy were in the dining room. I
did not sec tho lunti. I saw some
nicnacs -on the table and Madeira
wine. We were asked to drink.
Wilcox called the meeting lo order
in the dining room. Loomens wns
there. Wilcox stated Ihe object of
the meeting and read a constitution
from a hook. It wns to discharge
the Cabinet, and got a new constitu
tion for the country. Another thing
wns wc were Intake the oath which
stated that whoever divulged any
paitof the constitution should be
killed by the others. Loomens sat
on the right of Wilcox. I went out
nnd stood guard armed with a
Springfield riflo which I got from
Wilcox's room. Boyd was also on
guard armed. I heard Testa lefuse
to tako the oath. He said it he had
known tho object ho would not havo
been present. He formed a society
some two years ago and got disgust
ed. Cumrnings also refused because
he had a wife and family to look
after. I saw a lot of arms at the
house. Each of us was lo carry
one where wo wero lo be directed.
Wilcox said he was president of tlio
society and that he appointed Loo
mens vice-president. I heard Loo
mem say that he was sorry the Ila
waiians were treated so blidly, and
that they were, not represented in
the government. Tho meeting was
called about 9 o'clock, I was there
until II o'clock tho next morning.
During the evening I was ent by
Wilcox to fetch two members, Spen
cer and Crowningberg. I got Ihem.
We discussed that night whether wo
should go to the Palace or barracks
Were to go to the barracks to get
the cannon, take them in tho I'alnce
and place them in position. Wc
wanted guns and ammunition for
the purpose of expelling the Minis
ters and getting a new constitution.
Expect we should want thorn to fire
at the enemy. We adjourned lo
moot again the following night ho as
to get John T. Baker there. Baker
was sent for the (list night but did
not come. With regard to Baker
wo desired his presence for it was
thought hu would be ublo to do more
with the soldiers at the barracks in
getting the guns,

OF THK I'NJTKD STATES
A SIMPLE PROMISE TO PAY.. .
From the Xr.w Yonic Timu, June A!, 1833.
Tho Kquitnble Life Assurance Society lins adopted n "new form of
policy which, like a Wank draft, is a simple promise to pav without condi
tions on the buck. " 1
From the Cmritio I.svr.JTtn u-oit 1 "N
Always on tho alert, atrl ever anxious to give the public th. most
advantageous contract In life insurance, tho Kqiiilable Life Assurance So
ciety of New York has, in the past, made many advances on old methods,
nnd has been the means to liberalize liln assurance in a greater degree,
perhaps, than any other organization. It is not at all surprising, there
fore, that this great company now comes before tho people with a new
contract, the like of which has not before been known In life tnsuranee.
From llieKKNTvricv Kkoistkii, Klehiiimiil, K.r.. luuu 'Js. Hs'.l
The Kquitnble Life. Assurance Society has, in iho pai, done more to
cieatc ami maintain confidence in life assurance than any nther company.
Consequently its business is larger than that of any of is competitors.
Furthermore, it lias now taken a step which practically swoops every ob
jection of the chnractcr referred to out ot the way. The result, undoubt
edly, will be that thousands of men who have heretofore lacked confidence
in life assurance, will examine Ihe ne.v policy ottered by the KqniUble,
and assure their lives forthwith.
("From tho ItoiT.i.v I'osr.
rhis company ha-j done more than any other to simplify (lie assurance
