" When my little boy was six months old, ho
had eczema. The sores extended so quickly
over the whole body that we at once culed in
the doctor. W<5 then
went to another doctor,
but he could not help
him, and in our despair
we went to a third one.
Matters became so bad
that he had regular
holes in his cheeks,
large enough to put a
finger into. The food
had to be given with a
spoon, for his mouth
was covered with crusts
as thick as a finger, and
whenever he opened the
mouth they began to
bleed and suppurate, as
did also his eyes.
Hands, arms, chest, and
back, in short the whole
body, was covered over
and over. We had no
rest by day or night.
Whenever he was laid
in his bed, we hod to
pin his hands down:
it???nn??..-, otherwise he would

make an open sore. I think his face must
have itched most fearfully.
" We finally thought nothing could help,
and I had made up my mind to send my wife
with the child to Europe, hoping that the sea
air might cure him, otherwise he was to be
?ut under good medical care there. But,
_x>rd be blessed, matters came differently,
and we soon saw a miracle. A friend of ours
spoke about Cuticura. We made a trial with
Cuticura Soap, Ointment, and Rer.olvent, and
within ten days or two weeks we noticed a
decided improvement. Just as qvickly <> a the

J been entrusted with hundreds cf
thousands of dollars by the company,
and has not accounted for 8235,000,
has been beard by the New York Leg

mittee, bub has declined to make an
A statement by Mr. Hamilton was
read for the record Wednesday. It was
presented by the Secretary John C.
McCall, of the New York Life, who
went to Pirls to obtain an accounting
from Hamilton. In his statement Mr.
Hamilton says that he is unable to
produce any books or accounts, be
cause he undertook the Legislative
matters for the life insurance compan
ies with the express understanding
that, he was to make no accounting.
Absolute secrecy was neccessary In re
tainlrg assistance therefore no checks
were used in making payments.
Mr. Hamilton *ent into an exhaus
tive explanation of the reasons for or
ganizlng thin confidential service, as
necharfccterized it, covering his math
ods of work and citing a number of
legislative bills m which he had been
interested. A list of expenses from
1899 to 1904 was appended to the
icatement. The sum of 8235 000 un
accounted for, he says, wcuid be great
ly reduc d by his running acc uat still
unsettled and open, and, as a matter
' of faith, pending a settlement, he of
fers to deposit 8100,000 with the com
Mr. Hamilton, in his statement,
says that at the tim6 of his employ
ment by the New York Life, the life
inturaicj companies feared that un
less concerted action was taken they
might be practically legislated and
taxed out of existence.
"The usual praotice of depending]
alone upon counsel to attend and pres
ent arguments was determined to be
Insufficient,"saysMr. Hamilton. "The
very faot that the great life insurance
interests of New York favored or op
posed pending legislative propositions,
would itself often concentrate the op
position against their viewt; so like
wise did the knowledge that we were
represented at the capitols of the var
ious States lead to demands that pol
itical favorites should be employed in
Che role of counsel, which, if acceded
to, placed our e f .Irs at the mercy of
those who did not possess our con?
dence. These and other considera
tions led the three companies to but j
one conclusion. We felt that it a se
cret service was a permissible govern
mental agency, a confidential service
would be the only effsctive, and at
the same time proper, plan to gu ird
the welfare of the most extensive com
mercial interests iu the world?the
life insurance business of the State of
New Yoik This confidential secret
service was decided upon as the only
feasible plan of protection."
Mr. Hamilton gives a long summary
of the various styles of bills hostile to
insurance companies, many of them
taxable measures. "Bills to compel the
company "s reports to be repeatedly and
unnecessarily published tn newspapers
are advecated," says Mr. Hamilton,
"to gain favor with the press for in
creasing their revenues. Outrageous
propositions, such as .the 10 per cent
tax proposed in Arkansas, or absurd
propositions like the Michigan bill,
where a doctor's certl floate of ill
health would excuse the payment of
the Insurance premium and keep a
policy in force; or the Virginia bill,
making it actionable for a life insur
ance agent to enter the office of a|
man, where the sign 'no agents allow
ed' is displayed find, legislative favor.
However ridioulous these bills may
seem, they demand attention.

Every year that you carry an Equitable Policy

experience, to avoid as far a? possible
;ny exact public information a3 to who
represents us. The known presence of
i corporation represented at legis?a
oivu halls is the signal for renewed
vigor in the attacks of blackmailers
and cranks, and unfortunately mem
bers of the legislative body are fre
quently deaf to reasoning where a non
voting or corporate interest is at stake.
Where it becomes necessary, we have
I often bad occasion to employ the col
umns of the public press for a discreet
ad vocaey cf our views; this method has
been found to b* very effiCEciouj, but
is has also been found very expensive.
I hav6 found that in my work in every
leg'slative body in the United States
there was as large a proportion of
honest men a3 there is in any body of
men-in any walk of life. Permit me
also to state that In mv work I have
not found it so difficult to defeat black
mailers. A man who is out to black
mail corporate interests in generally
well known and his character thorough
ly understood. TnesB men never re
tain influence for any length of time,
and I have found that requests to the
honest members nf the Legislature for
! help in defeating the blackmailer are
1 always readily and coeerfully granted."
, A statement of money received by
! Mr. Hamilton shows a total of 8270,
550 for the years from 18,99 to 1905
j He calls attention to aa expense of
883,100 for ' retainers and newspaper
articles" in 1904 aud says a large por
tion of this expense was occasioned by
I an attempt to create public sentiment
[throughout the United States in fa
vor of national supervision ot insur
ance. Under the same heading? 897,
000 is charged for 1905 and the in
creast was due, he says, primarily to
I the troubles in the Equitable Life As
I surance Society.
In concluding bis statement, Mr.
Hamilton says that "the injunctions
jof the president of the New York
Life to me were always unmistakably
explicit that my expenditures and my
work were to be strictly con fined With
in the limitations of the law of the
land. These instructions have been
faithfully followed to the letter Tbere
has never been a disbursement made
by me of the company's funds whioh
trespassed upon the instructions given
me by the president of this company
I and I want it thoroughly understood
that not one dollar of any moneys
I ever paid to me by the New York
Life Insurance Company has been ujed
improperly or foi improper purposes,
or in a way that transgressed either
the statutory law or the moral law."
'A statement of legal expenditures
I other than those to Hamilton was
produced by Mr. McCall, showlDg a
total for suoh expenditures of 81,103,
920 from 1901 to 1905. /
Secretary McCall waB questioned b>
Mr. Hughes as to what lurther light
be could throw on the statements of
Mr. Hamilton, but he said he could
give no information. He did not
question Mr. Hamilton's figures nor
the large amounts for travelling ex
penses. He asked Mr. Hamilton for
a full statement and relied on his
honesty to explain everything. He
did Insist that Mr. Hamilton produce
checks or check books, bus Mr. Ham
ilton said he hart none.
When Mr. McCall was excused
Henry D. Applexon, of the State in
surance department, was called. He
was told that Mr. Morgan, former
president of the Bankers' Life Insur
cue; Company, had testified that Mr.
Appleton had sa'd it would cost the
Binkers'Life 850.000 to reincorpor
ace. Mr. Appleton somewhat heated
ly said: "If Mr. Morgan said that, "he
Is a liar."
He was called to order by Chairman
Liuis F. Payn, former superinten
dent of insurance of the State of New
York was cdled to the stand late in
the day and explained a large number
of appointments of confidential exam
iners on the ground that an unusual
number of examinations were made
during his tenure of effioe.
Mr. Hughes produced a list, which
I showed that in 1892, two examinations
were made, and in 1898 two more
were made, while in 1899, the last
year of Mr. Payu's administration the
number had not been brought out
when adj jurnment was taken. The

Deafness Oannot ba Oared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the
ear. There is OLly one way to cure
deafness, and that is by constitution
al remedies. Deafness Is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustachlan Tube. When
this tube isinflimed you have a rum
bllng sound or Imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, Deafness is
the result, and unless the infiamation
can be taken out and this tube restor
ed to Its normal condition hearing will
be destroyed forever; nfne cases out of
ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is
nothing but an infl imed condition of
the raucous eurfsces.
