To tlje Insurance Public
of the Territory of Hawaii
Having been apnolnted to the position of District Superinten
dent, for the Territory of Hawaii, by the Mutual Life Insurance
Company of New York, we have opened offices In Honolulu, and
will take formal charge of tne Company's business March first,
after which date all payments of Premium by policy holders, the
payment of Death Claims and Matured Endowments are to be
made at the Company's office at 932 and 938 Fort street.
The modern contracts Issued by the Mutual Life, offer larger
guarantees than do those of other companies.
THE COMPANY FINANCIALLY UNASSAILABLE.
Remembe'r that, with all the reckless talk In the newspapers
. about syndicates and salaries and subsidiary companies, the secur,
Itles of the Mutual Life have not been criticised nor their perfect
safety questioned. The Investments of the Company were an open
book In the hands of the Investigating Committee; every loan,
every bond, every security of any description was before them
four hundred and fifty millions and more; and not a single Item
was discredited, and not a single Investment of any sort was
classed as doubtful. '
As ever, the Mutual Life Is still the strongest financial Insti
tution In the world, with a reserve $36,000,000 larger than that of
any other existing company, and with a contingent guarantee
fund, or accumulated profits, of $75,000,000 In excess of Its legal
liabilities. , ,
It Is still true, aa It has always been, that the Mutual Life
has paid more TO policyholders, and holds more today FOR pol
icyholders than any other company In the world. Nearly seven
hundred millions to date has the Company disbursed to Its mem
bera and their beneficiaries, making, with what It still holds for
them, nearly one hundred millions more than It has received from
them. ., .
You are cordially Invited to examine our contracts and satisfy
yourself that we Guarantee more In Insurance protection to your
family and estate and to return more In cash aa an Investment for
your old age than do other companies.
Yours for business,
