council and, mayor were corporation
owned, or at least negligent of the rights
of the people, he announced his candi
dacy for the mayoralty. He was elected.
In Cleveland it had been customary for
the incumbent of this office to hold over
sixty days after election. Acting under
the letter of the law. however, Johnson
entered the mayor's office the day after
the ballots had counted him in, and
calmly informed the then major that he
was out of a Job: that he (Johnson) had
qualified and proposed to take Immediate
Prior to 1300 there were two traction
lines in Cleveland, one in. which Tom
Johnson and his friends were controlling
factors, and the other in which Senator
Hanna was the power. These lines were
later consolidated as the Cleveland Elec
tric Railway Company, and in the pro
cess of consolidation Johnson was froze
out. His company had been giving seven
fares for 25 cents, while the other line
charged 5 cents for each fare. After
the absorption the 5-cent fare was uni
versal. Wins 3-cent Fare Fight.
As soon as he had taken his oath as
mayor. Johnson opened the first broad
side for a 5-cent fare and for preven
tion of extension of franchises on vari
ous streets excepting upon that basis.
Fourteen Injunction suits, three of which
went to the United States Supreme
Court, were brought during the early
stages of the duel. The most exciting
incident of the fight in its earlier stage,
however, came in 1902, when a franchise,
prepared by Mayor Johnson, providing
for 3-cent fares and the right of the city
to buy the lines at any time, was intro
duced and passed.
Again Johnson began plans for a 3
cent fare company. It was necessary,
though, to get around the Ohio laws,
which prevent a city from owning or
operating street car lines. He accom
plished this by organizing the Forest
City Railway Company, to be operated
rnder lease by the Municipal Traction
Company, to which the council, con
trolled by the mayor, granted a fran
chise, illegal, however, on the ground
that some of the necessary permits from
property owners had been revoked. This
tied the matter up another two years.
In the meantime Johnson was re-elected.
The fight dragged on merrily through
eight j ears. Every technicality that pre
sented itself was taken advantage of by
Johnson's enemies, but the line at length
began giving a service on the 3-cent fare
Contrary to Mayor Johnson's contention
that in Cleveland a street railway could
make a reasonable profit and pay divi
dends on a 3-cent fare basis, his municipal
line lost money, and, besides, the serv
ice was poor. Gradually the mayor's
ideas lost caste with the people, and when
he came up for re-election in November,
1909. he was defeated by a small majority.
Without loss of time the Cleveland Elec
tric Railway Company proceeded to take
oer the 3-cent fare lines by purchasing
the stock and reorganizing, and 5-cent
fares were again in vogue and are now.
Loses Entire Fortune.
After his defeat, Johnson announced
that his fight for 3-cent fares and against
monopoly in Cleveland had cost him prac
tically his entire fortune. He lost $400,
000 in one swoop by mismanagement of
certain interests while he was busy trying
to make 3-cent fares pay. He had to
give up his magnificent home and his
automobiles and take a little flat at $35
a month He told his friends he was not
sorrj. however, and that he was ready to
fight the battle all over again. He num
bered his close personal friends by the
thousands. Like a majority of good fight
ers, he also was a good loser.
Then came the greatest fight in his
career the fight against death. On
March 22 of last year Mayor Johnson
left for Europe in an effort to regain
his waning health. But he had been
game, too game, and had worked long
after his physicians had forbidden him
any exertion. In Europe he consulted
noted specialists, and took the baths at
Carlsbad, returning to this country in
May. For several weeks he was in an
Eastern sanatorium, and then went with
his wife to his home in Cleveland. The
rally was not for long, however, and
seldom was he even strong enough to
see his friends.
Mr. Johnson hovered between life and
death for many months, and hnally. on
March 20, took a turn for the worse.
Since then the end was only a question.

OF NEW YORK
JOHN R. HEGEMAN, President
Insurance Superintendent's Report
The Hew York Insurance Department has had the Company tinder examination, pursuant to law, for about
fifteen months. After this examination the Superintendent of Insurance said:
THOROUGHNESS. "It is thought that no Company of
this character under the supervision of any Insurance Depart
ment in the United States has ever been so thoroughly
examined by such a Department."
PAYMENT OF CLAIMS. "The claims received aver
aged from 600 to 800 each working day; the percentage of
rejections is small, being in 1909 less ttian one-half of one
CAREFUL INVESTMENTS. "On an investment of
$100,000,000 in real estate mortgages this Company now
holds through foreclosure but one piece of realty."
INDUSTRIAL POLICIES AT COST. "On this basis
this Company, from all of its departments, added to its
surplus in 1909, after setting aside in that year as a
liability its dividends and bonuses for 1910, about $800,000;
in other words, the volume of its business being considered,
seems to have furnished insurance substantially at cost."
Report shows during the last five years:
Reduction in the ratio of expense to premium income. . 7.13
Reduction in the ratio of lapse to issue 10.36
Reduction of cancellations in first year of insurance.. 8.92
In 1910 the Company wrote a larger amount of Ordinary business in the United States and Canada
than any other company, by TWENTY MILLIONS !
In 1910 the Company placed Ordinary Insurance np to the Limit of the Iaw
and was obliged to hold back hundreds of thousands of dollars of insurance by reason of the New York statute limiting
amount in any one year.
MORAL: Get in early this year and avoid the rush at the end. Best plans; cheapest rates; all policies non-participating
that is, the money is not collected on promise of repayment in dividends, but is left in the pockets of the
insured by reduction of premium.

OLD POLICIES. A bonus has been declared to
Industrial policy-holders amounting to nearly
SIX MELLIONS OF DOLLARS
payable in 1911 on Whole Life and Increasing Life and
Endowment policies issued prior to 1907, which bonuses give
reduction of premium varying, according to period of per
EIGHT TO ONE HUNDRED PER CENT.
The Company added not one dollar to surplus at the
end of 1910 out of income from Industrial policies.
NEW POLICIES. The benefits on policies issued since
January 1, 1907, are over
TWENTY PER CENT. GREATER
than the benefits promised by policies issued previously.
In the last eighteen years it has declared
TWENTY-FIVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS

Welfare Work for Policy-holders
Extracts from the Report of the Superintendent of Insurance of the State of New York.
cNo summary of this examination of the Metropolitan
Life Insurance Company would be complete which omitted
reference to certain agencies for social service which it has
inaugurated and is now conducting."
"CAMPAIGN AGAINST TUBERCULOSIS. Among
the activities of this Company begun since the Armstrong
investigation is its participation in the nation-wide crusade
against tuberculosis. As to policy-holders, its work has thus
far been confined to the dissemination of the literature of
prevention and instruction; a work which its great Agency
force and close contact with the industrial classes makes
easy, as well as effective. As a matter of mere business
economics, the Company's activities in this direction entitle
it to the approval of the Department."
"NURSING SYSTEM. About two years ago this
Company inaugurated a system whereby trained nurses
would, upon request, be sent to the homes of sick or
bedridden policy-holders in its Industrial Department. . . .
While this service has been but recently established, and
while, therefore, the examiners are in some doubt as to
its ultimate effectiveness either from the standpoint of saving
the lives of policy-holders or minimizing unhealthy condi
tions, no one can make a personal investigation into what
has already been done without being profoundly impressed
with, not only the economic, but, more, the beneficent value
of the work. Numerous cases where lives have been saved
are already on record. Many instances showing improve
ment in home conditions due to the visits of the nurses

New York. April 10. Mrs. E. L. Da ics
Dore, the self-proclaimed "widow" of Gen.
Thomas T. Eckcrt, former head of the
Western Union Telegraph Company,
came to the Surrogate's Court to-day with
her son and admitted that she swore
falsely when she declared that she mar
ried Eckert In 130S. The only explana
tion she would give of her motive for
having made such a statement was that
a member of tho Eckert family had told
her to do so and sho was "afraid" to
disobey the order.
Surrogate Cohalan Interrogated Mrs.
Dore about several cases In which she
is alleged to have appeared as a claimant
without any Justification for her claims.
To all of these questions she answered
that she "told the truth," or "didn't re
member." She said that so far as Mr.
Eckcrt was concerned she wouldn't
marry him, because ho was "a course,
vulgar, and uneducated man."
When Mrs. Dore persisted In saying
that a member of the Eckert family,
who is interested In the contest for tho
$2,000,000 estate, had told her to come to
court and make her false claim, the sur
rogate said to her son:
"I don't want to send your mother to
jail, but you ought to take some steps
to protect society against her. She Is
evidently feebleminded, and I advise you
to have her placed in an Institution where
she can be taken care of."
Mr. Dore stated that he would do so as
soon as possible. He was then allowed
to take his mother home.
