' I need not toil your leaders that Con
grew adjourned yesterday, tut it may be
newg and it may be interesting to state that
tho members were in exceptionally good
humor at parting. Considering the small
number present in the House ecly a few
more than a quorum there was an unprcce
dented amount of good fellowship. In the
Senate the condition of tffairs was the
same, only the overpowering eccse of dig'
nity that governs the Senators did not al
low the tame public manifestations. If you
scratch a Senttor you fnd under
tho skin a marble statue of de
comm. But in bcth houses old
scores were wiped out and a thoroughly
pleasant closing was had. Speaker Hnn
dall always says the right thing on such
occasions, and did not fail to do so yester
day. Senator Thurman was brief and sen
sible. The session has told orhim more
than any other Congressman.
I give a list of the bills passed at this
session, which are of general interest, aside
from the appropriation bills:
To prevent the introduction of contagious
diseases; to contract tor the construction of
a refrigerating ship for the disinltction of
vcesselsand cargoes; extending the pension
of General James Shields to his
widow and children, and granting a special
pension to tho widow of Colonel Fletcher
Webster, exempting from registry, enrol
ment or license, vessels not propelled by
sail or internal motive power of their own ;
joint resolution relating to the national
Iward of health ; to provide for a Mississip
pi river commission ; to put quinine on the
free list; completion of the foundation of
the Washington monument; directing a
monument to be erected to mark the birth
place of Washington ; bill to allow tho ex
change of small silver coin for legal ten
ders to the amount of f 20.
There tre the most contusing reports
irorn Main as to the political prospect
Letters from Mr. Ladd, greenback Demo
cratic member of tho house, claim great
greenback gains, while regular Republi
cans give an entirely different account of
, affairs. I have not heard of any letter rc
ceivedfroni Senator Blaine since he went to
REFORM IN LIFE-INSURANCE.
From the Chicago Tribute
The Equitable Life-Assurance Company
has just announced some important reforms
in their system which, if carried out in
good faith, will not only be of great ad
vantage to their policy-holders, but compel
other pompaniet to follow their example.
These reforms are are briefly and clearly
announced as follows : (1) That all poli
' cles shall be incontestable by the Company
on any ground whatsoever after three an
nual payments shall have been made; (2)
that every ordinary life policy shall have a
definite surrender-value after three years
from its date; (8) that the ontract, thus
implified, shall be' concisely and clearly
expressed in tho policy; and (4j that the
new tule is applied to all ex
isting policies as well as thote ihat
shall be taken out in the future.
, This tew departure will work a revolution
In tho life-insurance busim sf. Exict ad
1 herencfl to thee laws will practically ex
tinguish litigation for the recovery of in
surance by the wife or family for whj
benefit the nusbund and father hin struu
fllodtopny the annual premiums. The
confusion that has grown out of thn con
flicting judicial decisions lu various Stt
will no long funmh a p ttext for atcid-
log or Mwriog the niyiueut of a policy
' which matures by death nr agreement.
Neither tb art nor the simrdcioo of rui
' io'de, nor arjliegstbn of fraud or lir.g
ttiarity, ni l serve to prevent the colla tion
f the nvney dut the insured it his heirs
after three payments have been made, and
the inability to maintain the payments
after three years will still leave the in
sured the proportionate value of his invest
ment. Tho general reform la tho system of life
insurance which may be expected us a re
sult of this action on tho part of trie Equit
able Life will contribute also to a marked
improvement ia the condition of thy com
panies doing business on tho new plan ; It
will necessitate a reduction of expenses in
all directions, since the illegitimate proflts
from contested matured policies, and tho
incidental revenue from lapses of policies,
will be cut off. All the companies, under
tho new system, will bo compelled to aban
don the extravagance of princely salaries
and palatial offices, and the prevailing vice
of seeking new business by excessive com
missions to tgents at tho expense of those
who already hold policies will be reformed
nltotrether. Ia takina; tho lead in this mat
ter, the Equitable Life has followed out the
principle upon which it acted
ia the Dwight case, which excited
so much attention o few
months ago. The death of Mr. Dwight
in a short time after taking out a largo lino
of life-insurance iurnished a pretext for set
ting up suicide and fraud in tho procure
ment ot his policies, and many of the los
ing companies sought to escape payment,
but the Equitable paid over the money
without contest. Ia applying this rule to
all policies after the lapse of a reasonable
time for the discovery of irregularities, tho
Equitable will force other companies to
adopt it, and the result will be greater
economy, more caro and better management
than could besecured by any legis
lative device or any system of official
Inspection. Life-insurance will never again
be as speculative and sensational in this
country as it was a few year9 ago, but it
will henceforth be safer and more valuable
to the people if ths new rules of the Equit
able he adopted generally.
