THE RAILROAD CASES.
Tho Supreme Court of the United
States has granted the writ of
habeas corpus asked for on the part
of the attorneys for the State in the
railroad cases,and a rule has been
served on Simonton and the United
States Marshal who arrested the
sheriffs, requiring them to show
cause before that body on the 27th
of March why the said sheriffs
should not lie discharged. The
court has also decided to hear ar
gument on the merits, and the
whole matter of the legality of the
tax imposed by the State, on the
railroads will be heard and deter
mined, as well as the right of a
Federal court to restrain the arm
of a sovereign State in collecting
her taxes. The case has become a
national one in importance as it
affects alike all the States of the
Union. The determination of the
United States Court to hear the
case on its merits is a surprise not
only to laymen, but many of the
best lawyers had no hope but that
the application for the writ would
be dismissed and the merits of'the
case left untouched.
In this matter Tillman stood
alone, and but for his strong will
and keen sense of the injustice of
Simonton's proceedings it would
never have gona up. To this last
i.e. the injustice of Simonton's
rulings, there could be little dis
sent, but few men will undertake
a task which even their friends
The granting of the writ was
probably altogether ex gratia on
the part of the court, but all the
same, the issues will be heard and
Tillman will deserve the thanks
of hi? people no matter what the
result may be.
A distinguished constitutional
lawyer in this State has said that,
'if the Supreme Court decides in
this case' that Simonton is wrong,
as it did in the other ease, he
will hay? no other alternative
but to resign ano! give place to a
wiser, if not a better man."

Senator Irby's Views on the Pa
WASHINGTON, D. C., March ll.-A
mugwump congressman from New
York made some startling state
ments to the Chronicle representa
tive this morning. His disappoint
ment at not being able to control
certain patronage in has Atale,
prompted him to divulge what
would otherwise have remained a
a secret until the proper time had
arrived for the scheme to havel
been carried out. It is a fact that
Cleveland will oppose Crisp and
it is also a fact that the New York
congressmen will vote for an anti
"Senator Irby will be chairman
af one of the important senate
committees," said Arthur P.
Gorman to The Chronicle
representative to night. Thie news,
which reaches the public for the
first time, and exclusively through
the colums of The Chronicle will
be very gratifying to Senator
[roy's friends in Georgia and
South Carolina. He had a long
talk with Mr. Gorman this morn-1
ing, and took occasion to use
some able bodied English. He
bad learned, and correctly, that a
bitter personal fight was being
paged by his enemies, bo!h in
Washington and at home, against]
bis appointment to one of the!
chairmanships, and proceeded
forthwith to Mr. Gorman, chair
nan of the Senate reorganization
?ommittee, for information, as
veil as to state his side of the
natter, whieh he did in language
classic and forceful!.
Senator Irby talked but a few
niuutes before Senator Gorman
rankly said "Mr. Irby, no matter j
vhat opposition may be hurled
iganist you, it is a settled fact
hat you will be chairman of an
mportant committee." Senator]
jorman and Senator Irby have
Deen quite intimate if not cordial,
unce the latter entered the senate,
md it is due ?probably to Mr.
aorman more than anybody else
;hat the young Carolinian is to
be so promiuenty recognized.
Senator Irby called at the white
louse today at 2 o'clock and was
in conference with the Presideut
tormore than half an hour. He
leclined to state the purposes of
nterview, but with his * usual
imile said :
"Our friends, the enemy, in
3outh Carolina will have some
fo^g^ short i
?me^wat will surprise them"f'"So
t is a fact certain that the Caro
ina patronage will be divided
qually between the two factions.

plough the impression is

The leaders of the South Caro

the recommendations for fedaral

Union Mutual Life Insurance Company,
OF .pO^TT-iAl?TZf, TVTATNTB.
Its Policies are the Most Liberal Now Offered
to the Public.
Is the only existing Company whose policies are, o; can be subject to the
MAINE NON-FORFEITURE LAW.
-WHAT IT IS.
The Maine Non-Forfeiture law protects policies from forfeiture
by reason of default of payment of premiums. It provides that, a?ter
three years' premiums have been paid, failure to pay any subsequent
pr-miums shall not forfeit a policy, but it shall continue in force for
its full amount until the reserve (lees a small surrender charge) upon
the policy is exhausted.
The reserve is a sum made up of portions of each and every pre-,,
mium paid upon a policy in anticipation of its maturity. Beginning
with a small portion of the first premium, it is increased each yearby
the addition of each subsequent premium, and grows larger year by
year, until, at maturity, it exactly equalB the face of the policv. When
a policy is discontinued therefore, there is in the hands of tho Com
pany a reserve, greater or less, according to the character and age ' of
the policy. Instead of permitting the Company, upon non-payment
of premium, to confiscate this reserve, the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law .
requires the Company to continue the policy in force until the policy
holder receives an equivalent for it in extended insurance.
How IT WORKS.
If apernon, aged 35, pays three years' premiums upon a twenty
payment Life policy and then discontinues pay-nent, the policy wil .
be continued 4 years and 257 days longer; if he pays five premiums,
and then discontinues, the insurance will continue 7 years and 357
If the policy is a twenty year endowment, same age, three years'
payments will give an extension of 8 years and 150days; five years'
payment 13 years, 300 days. If the policy is a 15 Year Endowment,
($1,000) same age, three years' payments will secure insurance to the
end of * the endowment period and $13.68 in cash if insured lives till
that time, and in like manner ten years' payments secures insurance
for the full 15 years and $592.17 in cash.
These extensions vary with the age of the insured, the class of
policy, and the number _oj. payments made; they- are statedsjn, Q*"^
'policyri?f years and days, ioT?acn number of payments, so that the
policy-holder knows ata glance exactly what he is,en titled to if he
discontinues his payments at any time.
What It Has Done.
The Company Has Paid over Two Hundred Death Claims, in con
sequence of this law, aggregating in sums insured more than Four
Hundred Thousand Dollars.
In every case there had been a default in *he payment of pre
mium, and, except for this law, the policies would have been of little
or no value. Instead of this, the insurance in each case was extended
to the time of death, and the Company was required to pay to the
beneficiaries under the policies the sum of $418,335.77.
ie Yalne o? Mie. Law Extensions as Comparefl
WITH JPAXU-TJF "V^LXJTJES.
It is the custom of many companies to provide in their policies
that, upon discontinuance of payment of Premium, paid-up policies
will be given, without the option of extension. This was the practice
of the Union Mutual before the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law was en
acted, but i.t now substitutes for paid-up values the more advantage
ous plan of extended insurance. The objection to the paid-up System
is that the amount of paid-up insurance which is given upon the dis
continuance of payments upon a policy, unless it bas been in force a
great many years, is insignificant, and of little or no valuo as protec
tion ; and it leaves the insured who ceases payment without adequate
insurance at tho very time he needs it the most.
The great advantage of the extended insurance afforded by the
Maine Law over the most liberal paid-up system is strikingly shown by
the following comparison, and it will be observed that the paid-up
value is insignificant in comparison with the amount actually paid by
the Union Mutual. The result of two hundred aud twelve policies
was this :
If the insured had received paid-up policies instead of ex
tended insurance, the Company would have had to
pay in settlement of the claims only. $98,197.50
Whereas, in fact, it did pay under the Maine Law, $418,344.77
Making a difference in favor of the beneficiaries under Two
Hundred and Twelve po?iciei of $320,147.28
The policies are free from edi restrictions, and incontestible after
A grace of one month is given in the payment of premiums.
