E. Rhodes Declares Various
Reform Proposals Should
Be Carefully Sifted.
St. Louis, Oct. 24.The second day's
session of the annual conventi on of the
National Association of Li fe Under
writers was opened with an addre ss by
E E Rhod es of Newark, N J., on
"Problems of Insurance Law."
A warning against the refor ms pro
posed by honest, tho uninformed, men
and emphasis of the need of sifting
thru the complexities of the several
laws proposed recently to separate the
good and the bad, was cast by Mr.
"During the year four public bodi es
have expressed their views regarding
the form of legislation required in
vi ew of the disclosures of life insurance
mismanagement," he said. "These
four bodies are the New York legisla
ture, the Massachusetts commission, the
committee of fifteen appointed at a con
ference of governors, attorneys general
and insurance commissioners, and the
select committee of the British house of,
The laws enacted by the New York
legislature cannot be said to represent
the views of the legislature. Forced
upon that body by inexorable political
exigencies, backed by a party caucus,
the right of the individual members to
exerciso their own judgment was denied.
"Freely acknowledging that there is
in the Armstrong laws, I cannot
too emphatic in stating that they
are not a model, because they were
drafted by inexperienced men who saw
only one phase, because they are based
upon local conditions, because they deal
with details rather than with princi
ples, and because they were neither
prepared nor enacted with due delibera
"The Chicago conference cannot be
said to be representative, except of the
western and southern states. The com
mittee of fifteen is mainly composed of
commissioners from states in which no
large life insurance company is domi
ciled. A St. Paul, where it met to de
'termine what legislation it should rec
ommend, there was no official from the
great insurance states of Massachusetts,
Cannecticut, New York, New Jersey or
Pennsylvania. Nevertheless, this com
'inittee has commended itself to thought
ful people more than has the Armstrong
Praises Bay State Commission-.

SLEW AN ACTRESS
FOR HER DIAMONDS
Theatrical Agent Clears the Chi
cago Hotel Murder Mystery
Chicago, Oct. 24.Mrs. Margaret Les
lie, the actress found dead in her room
in the Palace" hotel la st Thursday, did
not commit suicide, as -was first sup
posed, but was murdered.
Herbert Nicholas, a theatrical
agent, has confessed that he aided in
the murder and that George Leopold,
a drug clerk for whom the police are
now searching, was his accomplice.
The woman's diamonds and her money
Were the motive or the crime.
Nicholas said that he and* Leopold
went to the woman's room Wednesday
night and after a few moments' con
versation he suggested that they have
a drin k, producing a bottle of whisky.
Mr s. Leslie was taking off her jewels
at the time and her back was turned
toward them. While in this^posiiion,
Leopold, according to Nicholas, seized
the woman by the throat and choked
her in to insensibility.
Throwing her on the bed they placed
a towel saturated with chloroform over
her face. The men then took some of
the woman's garments and tied them
tightly around her neck. Seizing her
jewels, which were valued at $2,001), the
men turned on the gas jet, hurried
out of the room and left the hotel.
I was the anxiety on the part of
Nicholas to realize money on the jewelry
which led to his arres t. Detectives
working on the case found some of the
diamonds in a pawnshop and they were
traced to Nicholas.
