C. R. Dixon, manager for the Cov
enant Mutual Life association of
Galesburg, was in the city today.
As some little dissatisfaction had
arisen in this city among the policy
holders of the Covenant Mutual Ben.
efit association on account of the ap
parent increase oi assessment npon
the older members. The Amors, in
an interview elicited the following
replies to the questions usually asked
by those interested. As to the in.
crease of assessment referred to in
the opening of this article, an inves
tigation shows that it was simply a
readjustment of rates, and is
fully explained by Mr. Dixon in
his replies aa given below to a seriee
'What is the basis of yonr in
The increase was made in accord
ance with the mortality experience ol
the association and the age of the, in
sured at the time he secured his pol
icy. No increase or change has beeti
made in the amount of the expenst
Whv is it that the increase i-
greater in some cases, at least or
members carrying f2,500 than or
members carrying $5. WO?"
I be increase is in proportion U
the amount of the policy on like ages:
the assessments have been adjusted
in accordance with the age of eaei
member at tne time bis policy wt
issued. Heretofore a man aged27 ai
the time his policy was issued, pair
the same amount as one 38 years ol
at the time he made application.
wnicn was manifestly unjust an'
wrong; under the read justment eaci
pays according to his age, at th
time his policy was issued. Const-.
quently the man at 38 is increase'
more than one at the age of 37; an!
thus it is possible that a policy foi
5.000, issued at the age of 27 is no
increased as much as one issued a:
the age ot 38 for 2,500.
"On yonr last sheet of mortuart
payment appears a loss of $20,000:
the members claim to nave under
stood that the association never.
until recently, wrote more than $5,
000 on any one life, and only recenth
increased that to f 10.000. When di:
you commence to take these of (20,
000. and do yon think it safe?"
"A number of years ago the limit
of indemnity was increased to 110,
000 and in 1892 to 120.000; we be
lieve it safe in the manner in whict
we handle it. We accept no one foi
20,000 if there is a single flaw in tht
family or personal history, and thei.
nly after ascertaining that th
moral hazard is of the best. W e re
quire two separate examinations b
the liest qualified physicians to b.
'Has the association lost money?''
"Yes, the association has loi
money from the fact that for severa
years thosw members holding certifi
cates, have not paid sufficiently t
pay their share of the death losses.
II the association has lost monet
and it was necessary to adjust as.
sessments, now does it come thai
the association makes such a good
showing, showing assests of nearh
fl.009,000 Jan. 1 last past?"
"J he reason it enables us to makt
as good a showing as it does is ow
ing to the fact that since 1890 the
new contracts have paid largely in
excess of the amount paid b
the members Lolling the certifi
cates issued prior to 1890.
If you are now 42 years old
and that was your age at joining,
and were to apply for a policy today,
your bi-monthly assessment would
be f u. 'Jo on fd.oou insurance."
"What are the salaries of your
officers president, vice president,
secretary and treasurer?"
The salaries of the four oflicerr
combined, xiz: President, vice
president, secretary and treasurer,
are (10,400 per year."
Will this increase suffice, in your
opinion, to carry the association
along? Will it be-necessary.to furth
er increase assessments every half
Answering this question I would
say that no matter what my opinion
may be as to t,he likelihood of future
increase of assessments, the statutes
of both Illinois and Iowa prohibit
any official assurance to be given by
the officers of any insurance company
or society that the cost of carrying
the insurance will not increase un
less such institution collects from its
policy holders the regular premium
established for old line companies.

What was the cause of the death
of your (20.000 Los Angeles member?
When did he loin?"
Relative to the cause of death of
Mr. Mead, late of Los Angeles, Call
fornia, would say that this was one
of those unfortunate cases; he was
going home from his office at dusk
and was run over by a drunken
horseman and died from these in
juries. He was insured less than 60
'Does not the increase of member-
chip balance the increase of the num
ber of deaths on account of the ad
vancing age of members?"
All life companies, associations
and fraternal societies must reach
the average mortality among selected
lives, and the assessment cannot be
kept for all time below that cost."
Any other information in justice
to yourselves and to your members?"
l be directory of the association
has only one thing in view, and that
is to place all on an equitable basis
and to conduct the affairs of the
association that no disappointment
may come at any time to the bene
ficiaries when a policy becomes a
