R. L. H00KE, ONE OF DIRECTORS.
One oi the biggest financial
ever in the South
was launched w:th modest ceremony
last Wednesday when subscribers for
stock of the Citizens National Life
Insurance Company met in Louisville
and completed organization. Tlio
occasion attracted more than two
hundred men from crcrv section of
Kentucky and from many points
thioughout the South. One of the
noteworthy incidents in connection
with the organization of the new in
stitution is that on the day of its
formal entry into the financial and
commercial world every county in
Kentucky, save three remonte mountain
counties, was represented in the
roster of stockholders.
There arc said to be over 1,500
stockholders in the new company and
it is estimated that something like
SO per cent, of these were represent,
cd at yesterday's meeting, either in
person or by proxy. The total
of stock is announce! at
$1,000,000, an additional $1,000,000
being represented in surplus.
, The sum total of the entire day's
business was the formal assembly of
the stockholders and ratification of
. the work accomplished by the organizers
and incorporators, and the
. election of a board of directors,
numbering thirty-six prominent men
, of Kentucky and other Southern
. States. Included in the directorate
arc many men who have been promi
nent in the affairs of the Citizens
Life Insurance Company, of this city.
It is understood to be the plan of
the company just formed to increase
its capital stock to $5,000,000, with
a surplus of $5,000,000. Before
this is done, however, it is expected
there will be a consolidation of the
company with the Citizens Life In-.
surancc men and others declare this
will give Kentucky and the South
one of the strongest life insurance
companies in the world, and one
which will not confine its activities
to the section south of the Mason

should bear in mind that good teeth
are as essential to good bcaltb, as
good health is essential to beauty.

STATE SENATOR LINN
For A Few Hours Only Is He Chief
Executive Wllison And Cox
Out of The Commonwealth.
UNAWARE OF THE HUN QK.
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 17. Ken
tucky to-night has u Democratic
Governor, Conn Luiti, president pro
tern of Senate, being temporarily in
the Governor's chair during the
absence from the State of Governor
Willson and Lieut. Governor W. II.
Cox. Mr. Lion succeeds to the
Governor's chair when both the Gov
ernor anu liieutcntaut uovcrnor arc
out of the State or die. The former
contingency has happened, Governor
Willson was due m the State at one
o'clock this aftarnoon, but stopped
over in Philadelphia for a few hours
aud so did not reach Kentucky until
Thursday morning bout it o'clock
Gov. Cox left Kcutucky, on his
way to Florida for a hunting trip
this afternoon at -1 o'clock, hen
he left the borders of the State Mr.
Linn became acting Governor.
Ths is the first time that a Democrat
ever acted as Governor during a
Republican administration. It is
not the first time that the president
pro tern, of the Senate anted as Governor,
however, as Senator George
Hickman sat in the Guvcrn's chair
for two days, while president pro
tern, of the Senate during the abccncc
from the State of Gov. Bcekham and
Lieut. Gov. Thornc.
Mr. Linn probably will not know
that he was Governor for a fow hours
until Thursday when he sees the
newspapers. It would have been
impossible for him to reach Frank-,fort,
so he was not notified that, he
was actually acting Governor. As
he was not in Frankfort there was
but little that he could have done
and it is doubtful if he could havo
even granted a pardon without the
seal of the State and the Secretary of
State's name on it. But Mr Linn
will be known as Governor after this,
and he has a right to the title.
