THE PACIFIC MUTUAL
Life Insurance Cnmpany of California
Organized 1868 on "Old Line" Plan.
Ijad what one who is recognized au
thrity on the subject, has to say: "Of
lat;e the magazines and daily papers
he had much to say by way of criti
c' of certain Life Insurance Compa
, and especially with regard to the
Organization of such Companies,
of the manner of their control.
These CRITICISMS- do not apply to
The Pacific Mutual, but DEMON
STRATE the Truth of the Assertion
that "for [POLICY-HOLDERS The
Pacific Mutual has the BEST Legal
organization." It is not controlled by
ONE or Two men, having no pecuniary
interest or responsibility save as policy
holders, or recipients of salary; But it
is controlled by a BOARD of fifteen
Directors, not mere dummies, but Stock
holders in their own right, holding a
large amount of the Company's stock,
and Policyholners as well. The Direc
tors of the Company are men of high
Financial and Commercial standing, and
are by LAW made RESPONSIBLE for
the acts of the Officers of the CORPO
"The Company has a capital stock of
$500,000 Fully paid up in GOLD coin,
but while this Capital and the Stock
holders' responsibility afford to Policy
holders the GREATEST possible Secur
ity, it Costs participating Policyholders
NOTHING, but every dollar paid into
the Company by them and the ACCU
MULATION thereon, is applied - to
their BENEFIT. There is no Other
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY trans
acting business in America whose Pol
icyholders, by Legal enactment, are so
Safe-guarded as are the Policyholders
of The Pacific Mutual."

TO HUNT SEA ELEPHANTS
The Voyage of the Brig Daisy to
New Bedford Letter, in N. Y. Herald.
The Brig Daisy sailed this week un
der command of Capt. Benjamin D.
Cleveland, her owner, for Desolation
Islands, on a sea elephant hunt, to be
gone about two years.
This will be Capt. Cleveland's
fourth voyage for sea elephants, and
probably his last. Then the animals
will be without an enemy until some
daring whalernan decides t-o visit the
isolated land for hides and elephant
When the Daisy reaches the is
lands it will be spring, although there
is no mild season there. Hurricanes
and storms give continuous perform
ances and there is no vegetation, ex
cept a wild plant that resembles the
cabbage. The brig will be anchored
in a landlocked harbor with which
Capt. Cleveland is acquainted, while
the crew is killing elephants on shore.
The men will make trips ashore at
daylight every morning and visit the
haunts of the sea elephants. The
killing is done on land, and a catch
is almost certain.
Before Capt. Cleveland made his
first voyage, in 1897, no hunter had
visited Desolation for 20 years, and
the elephant population was very
large. In the bark Swallow he
brought back about 2,000 barrels 01
oil, the product of about 4,000 ele
phants. In the Robert S. Graham he
returned with 2,400 barrels, and by
the brig Lenora, three years ago, his
catch was 2,600 barrels. Said Capt
