If the person is past mlddlo lire. How

nocessary to 'reduce umformlv nil

SEVENTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT
To tht Polity 'holitit nnd Public:
Ono year ago I stated that the European war would not have any material effect on our Com
pany! notwithstanding the world-wide character of Its business.
I now confirm that statement by facts based on experience that includes twelve added months
In life insurance the financial effect of mortality is expressed by the per cent, which the total
actual death losses of the year bear to the expected death losses according to the tables of mortality
adopted by the State for valuation purposes. Through a period of years this per cent, (disregarding
fractions) has been as follows i ' ,
1912 Actual death losses 76 of the "expected'
( 1913 Actual death losses 73 of the "expected
1914 Actual death losses 73 of the "expected (5 months of war)
1915 Actual death losses 73 of the "expected (12 months of war)
In all the world, from the beginning of hostilities up to' January, 1916, seventeen months, wa.
had in all the membership of the Company 534 separate war claims.
During the year 1915 1
409 members of the Company were killed in war
448 members of the Company were killed by accident
707 members of the Company died of cancer
772 members of the Company died of pneumonia
950 members of the Company died of tuberculosis
In the grim battle of life, with its inevitable mortality and its unnecessary slaughter, the mor
tality of a world-war, even while it is being prosecuted, amongst a membership that is also world
wide is about
91 of that caused by accident in the same membership
58 of that caused by cancer in the same membership
of that caused bv nneumonla in the same membership

t modern war cannot be localized. Electricity, steam, and the partial conquest of the air have
made the world so small that any great international upheaval shocks the whole of civilization. War
under such conditions takes its toll impartially, and in these days the nation which is an "innocent
bystander" suffers proportionately with the belligerents. '
It is interesting to notice that this Company had, in seventeen months, war losees from seven
teen countries, and that what may be called AMERICAN LOSSES exceed those of any belligerent
country except in two instances:
United States (including Lusitania losses) $112,000
Great Britain 84,000
Only In Franco and Cermany have the totals exceeded those of our own country.
Life insurance isn't designed merely for times of peace. It would confess its inability highly
to serve humanity if it did not measurably cover all the risk naturally incurred by healthy men
DURING THE YEAR 1915 NO POLICY-HOLDEROR BENEFICIARY, WHEREVER RESIDENT,
WAS DENIED A REASONABLY PROMPT SETTLEMENT OF ANY JUST CLAIM. WE HAVE IG
NORED, AND STILL IGNORE, ALL MORATORIA, ALTHOUGH THESE REGULATIONS ARE IN
VOKED AGAINST US IN SOME PLACES.
I n New Business we have done well . We have made good the natural shrinkage on an outstand
ing business of $2,347,000,000 at the close of 1914, and increased the total amount to $2,403,000,000 at
the close of 1915.
Of the $214,000,000 new business paid for in 1915 over $200,000,000 was secured in the United
States and Canada. " '
NO BOND ISSUED BY ANY BELLIGERENT COUNTRY AND HELD BY US WAS IN DEFAULT
OF PRINCIPAL OR OF INTEREST AT THE CLOSE OF 1915.
Market values, as a whole, are a little lower than a year ago. Bonds of belligerent nations are
quoted in our Annual Statement at the market where a quotation was obtainable, otherwise and in
only one instance as of June 30, 1914.
