There enn bo no (iiicstlon of tlio 1m
pioprlety of petmlttliiR a saloon to be
licensed next door to a church. How
ever caiefully the fotmer may bo con
ducted, Its proximity to the latter It
bound to bo annoying- mid huttful; and
the less caiefully It Is liiuntiBOil the
itreater Is the lncoiiKiulty. As between
a saloon and u chinch lighting on Hilt
Issue befoie a license couit then- can
be no uncei talnty us to which deseivei
to uievall. liven when- the saloon Is
entitled to cjnlm prloilty the church

all who valuo the well'aie of society.
Those factual so well locognlzed that
the meio statement of them appeals
In the wise of the J'cmn Avenue Bap

lic sentiment stands with the foiiner,
and the position assumed by the 11
cuisp point tests under popular con
demnation. This feeling- Is not person
al aealnst Mr. Weleliel. His business
Is legalized by the state and Is con

fur the i entitlements of the license law
as Is evinced by the ineiage llcense
holder In thes-o paits. Weie he to le
nitive to another location the opposi

Hut In the place whole Ills business
now Is, It la legiuded by many woithy
citizens as a nuisance, and nothing ad
vanced In bis defence ltlates their
claim. The couit, In IgnoilnR the
unanimous lemonstiance of the lVnu
Avenue conKrecatloii, took a position
which cannot bo defended.
The best thine that the couit can do,
lor Its own take Is to lecall Its iriant
of a license to Mi. AVeichel and lay
diwn the tub that hereatter, undei no
clrrumstancos, will I' legalize a hiiluon
within a ceitaln distunce fiom a
chinch or a public school.
The piosldent's message is wisely le
strlcted to the one subject of legislation

which should guide congiess in socuilng

Tile Insurance Business.
Insurance Commissioner latmbott's
first annual lepoit gained for him
piompt lecosnltlon as a vigilant and
vlgoiuus olllclal whose aim compre
hended the utmost piotectlon of polity
holders possible by law, and his subse
quent woidb and deeds have confirmed
this Impiebslon. His lcjioi t for the year
just ended lb largely occupied w Ith nai -latives
of successful attempts by the
insurance depaitinent to upioot fiaud
tilent companies, and it shows that lit
tle. If anything, has been left undone.
Some queer tricks are exposed in the
lepoit, notably that credited to the
dlrectots of a Philadelphia company,
who lu their lepoit for IS95 saw lit to
enter among their assets a guarantee
lor $22,000 conti United by them "out of
a laudable deslie to shield the policy
lioldeis 1 loin a legal liability of as
bessment in a contingency"; but some
months later It was found that SU.Oui)
of this had been letuintd, without
entiy on the bookb, to the i ontilbutor.s
ot the guaiantte. "As the depaitinent
instated" adds Colonel I.ambeit, "that
this fund In each instance must be io
gaided us a Heo trlft to all tne policy
holder which could not be taken out
nt the plejfcine ol the contilbutois, or
Jf tlieiu was any intention of letiuiiing
it, then It must be nteied as a liability
ns well as an asset, they weie all so
held in the several annual statement",
and ns that very pioper method of bal
ancing the statement did not seive the
pin pose of the guarantee fund that of
making-an Imposing show of assets that
weie leally not assets Inteiest In keeping-
up that luiul was materially damp
ened." Ho Intends to see If the law
cannot be made to put a stop to such
juggling with llguiep.
Another device concerning which ad
ditional legislation may be nece3sar.v
has been developed by a Philadelphia
mutual company w hlch takes risk on its
own account and reinsures them in a
New Jersey mutual which Is not li
censed to do business In Pennsylvania
and coiiUl not be admitted under our
laws. It Is evident that If this piao
tlce bo tolerated, It would soon become
unnecessary for any of the insuiance
corporations of other states to secure a
license In Pennsylvania and the com
monwealth would lose half a million
dollais In annual ravonue.
Amomi the lecommendatlons urged
upon the leglslatuie is that It Ilx a
staudaid f oim of llio iusutance policy,
which shall be imlfoiin omong tlio com
panies doing business In the state. 1'lie
depaitinent thinks It must be npparout
that almost any fotm nuthoilzed by
law, even though bad in some leuluies,
must be better thai, none whatever,
since, under existing- conditions, them
may be Inserted In a cojitruct any pio-
vlslon which the iiibuied is willing to
accept or which may escape his atten-.
Hon, no matter how vicious. This toi
talnly appears ieasonabe.
The jepoit shows that the Pennsyl
vania compunles have had another
jitospernus yeai. Hie piemiuin lecelpts

und dullais moie than the inecediiig'

Is better, as th premiums received weie
neatly a million dollais moie than

millions and a half loss, The ratio of

f ylvr.ii la companies was CS.O.'j.us against
6,11 In 1S95, and of all the eompunlea
C3.29, au against G5.70 the yjur befoie.

accoidlng to the bebt evidence at band,
that this piomlslng- young attorney,

All who aie peisonally acquainted
with Mr. Loomis will, ve imag
ine, leadlly acquit him of dis
honest intent. His case is one
that calls for sympathy lather than
consul e; and it Is to be legietted that
he has weakened It by flight. It Is not
too late for him yet to act tlio biave
pait by letutning to the scene of his
mlslortunes, fiankly acknowledging his
fault and thiowiug himself upon the
inetcy of bis ciedltois. Human natuie
has by no means sunk so low that such
a couise would not appeal to its gener

advantage of poilods of business de
