New York Life. P
New York, Match 22.-A letter t
which Fi-mer President John A. Me--j si
wCall of 'he'New,York Life Insurance iti
company wrote on the day before his a
death, in which hi stated, the condi
Stionsi under which he employed An- t
drew Hamilton, as legislative -agent
of that company, was made public to- 'e
day. It was directed to Alexander E. ri
(Orr, president of the New York Life et
inhsurance company, and dated Feb- n
ruary. 16, last. It was written at a,d
moment-when Mr. McCall evidently h
#T1ied that he could not live and de
fends himself from the charge of 0
mA.king an improper arrangement .j
with Hamilton. The letter is as is
"M-y Dear Mr. Orr: I am conseious tl
that I have but a slight chance to re- la
cover, and I am desirous that you and v;
the company officials, through you, Ct
shall have no doubt of the nature and t4
charae,ter of the employment of An- bi
drew Hlamilton, if I am not here to
be heard when the time arrives to. b
have it made known. t
" He was employed by me in 1895 El
on behalf of the company to attend r:
especially to matters of taxation and h]
legislation in the United States and
other countries, affecting the compa- $
ny's interests. P
P He refused to accept the duty un- S
less it was made confidential and se
eret and that no accounting of mon
evs advanced to him should be asked a
of him, or rendered by him, and I
assented to the proposition.
."Her told me that this conditionCf
he would impose as. an absolute one,
and unless it was accepted he wouldc
not undertake the work.
"Whether my action was legal orL
not, it will be left for others to say.
I believed it was, and that I was e
clothed wvith full power so as to act,
and that the interests of the company r
nd the policyholders demanded steps a
of this 'nature be taken, but aside a
from this the main reason for my ~
present writing is, that there may re-h
main no doubt as to what my state- t
mit would be if I were here as to
