Legislative Committee Uncovers
Alleged Faults in Insurance
Milwaukee, April 14.So far the m
vebtigci+iou ot the Northwestern Mutual I
Life 1 noiirrr.ee company by a special
legislative committee has developed the
following matters which the committee
evidentlv thinks must be remedied in I
the company's management:
FustThe practical control of the
elections of the company by the officers
of the corporation.
Second'Loans upon policies at high
interest rates bv officers and relatives
of officers of the company.
ThirdThe charging of a higher rate
of interest by the company on small

large loans made on the same class of

Assignment Clause Criticized.
The testimony taken vesterday after
noon was of a technical but of a highly
important chaiacte". The men on the
stand were Perlev H. Sanborn, third
vice Dresident of the Northwestern Mu
tual Life Insurance company, and head
of its loan department, and the com
pany's actuary, C. A. Loveland.
The main feature of Mr. Sanborn's
testimony was brought out in compari
sons between the assignnent clauses of
the policy loan papers of the North
western Mutual Life Insurance com
pany and other companies making poli
cy loans. The assignment or the
Northwestern's policy provides for the

absolute forfeiture of policies used as
collateral for loans from the company
upon default in the payments of princi
pal, interest or premiums on the policy.
This is declared by Actuary Miles M.
Dawson to be the most severe assign
ment clause of any company, altho some
eastern companies are said to have simi
lar clauses. Mr. Sanborn said the as
signment conditions are rarely enforced.
Deferred Dividends Abandoned.
The testimony of Actuary Loveland
developed the fact that the passage of
the Wisconsin law compelling dividend
divisions on policies at least once in
five years haa caused the company to
abandon writing all deferred dividend
Another interesting fact brought out
by Mr. Loveland's testimony was that
policyholders who did not accept the
guaranteed settlement on twenty year
tontine policies, but chose rather to
keep the policies in force, had not" been
able to realize as much on the policies
as they would have obtained from a
twntv-veor settlement if settlements
i were made one, two or three years after
the regular settlement period.

The significant part of the steel-cut process, by which Bar-

VOLCANO'S DEAD TO

Mangled Bodies Are Taken
Naples, April 14.Before the last
chapter is written about the eruption
of Mount Vesuvius in 1906, it is prob
able that a death roll of 1,000 persons
will be recorded. How many millions of
dollars have been lost it will take
weeks to compute, but the popular es
timate is about $75,000,000 direct loss,
not to mention the enormous loss to
farmers thru inability to cultivate the
once-fertile fields that were left deserts
by the fury of the volcano.
The period of danger has passed, and
only desolation and slowly-declining
panic remain. Mount Vesuvius has
ceased to give any sign of life. The

one enormous convulsion.
