SYSTEM A NEW ONE
.ife Insurance Plan of Paul
Kersch Adopted by New
Savings Bank Life.
3ANKS ARE MADE AGENTS
Details to be Explained at Meeting of
Industrial Commission and Busi
ness Men at the Club.
A revolution in the practice of life
'nsurance which will remove every evil
hat has crept into the business is
laimeu for the Paul Kersch system
vhich has been adopted by the Savings
Uank Life Insurance company of Illi
nois recently organized by Paul Kersch
jf this city, and Milton Denney and
James 1 Ferguson of Chicago. A meet
ing of the Hock Island Industrial com
mission will be held at the Hock Island
Club tomorrow evening to consider the
question of cooperating with the offi
cers of the company with the object of
securing the headquarters for this city.
Secretary Levy, on behalf of the com
mission, today issued an invitation to
the business men of the city and all
others interested to be present at the
meeting and hear the project fully ex
plained. The Argus has previously published
details regarding the organizaJion of
the Savings Hank Life. It is- to have
a capital stock of $100,000, and $50,000
surplus. Ik-tore beginning businesss
1.U0O shares of stock will be sold at
$150 a share, $110,000 to be deposited
according to law with the authorities
of the state of Illinois as a permanent
guarantee fund, and the balance, $10,-
eoo, will be the working capital of the
company. Ihisiness will be established
simultaneously in Illinois and Iowa.
Feature of tlie Synteni Mimy.
The essential features of the system
which Mr. Kersch has devised are:
1. Divorcing the investment depart
ment from the insurance department
l. Providing against concentration
of capital by investing reserves lo
. Confining the company to its le
gitimate field of securing and supervis
i. Eliminating the expensive agency
system as now conducted.
a. Securing cooperation of local
bankers, who handle reserves.
(i. Simplifying every department of
7. Simplifying policy contracts.
t. bimpmying and expediting trans
actions with policy holders.
9. Dispelling the mystery with which
the business has been surrounded.
The evils which have crept into the
life insurance business may be traced,
it is said, almost without exception, to
the great accumulations of money in a
common center, under the control of a
Originally the loaning of money was
not contemplated in the institution of
life insurance. Experience proved, how
ever,, the absolute necessity of main
taining reserves, based upon scientific
calculations, and the proper invest
ment of these reserves came as a nat
ural consequence. In this manner near
ly all of the functions of the bank have
been incorporated, one by one, into the
institution of life insurance.
Under the Paul Kersch system these
great inter-dependent financial institu
tions meet on common ground, and
work ia harmony, each carrying on the
part for which it is best adapted.
Under this system no funds belong
ing to the policy holders are sent to
the home oflice of the company for in
vestment. All premiums are collected
by local banks, who will retain on de
posit to the credit of the company, a
sbllicient amount out of every premium
collected (from one-half to two-thirds)
to maintain in the bank the full legal
reserve on the policies in connection
with which the premiums are paid.
The balance is remitted to the home of-

ncc, to cover current death claims, ex
penses and profits.
One of the great economical features
of the Paul Kersch system is the over
coming of this great waste by having
the local depository banks act as the
sole local agency renresentatives
hrough whom applications for insur
ance may be made.
It is upon the inter-dependence of
interests growing out of the intimate
financial relationship that an entirely
new form of agency organization will
be established, that will, for the first
ime, commercialize the great business
of life insurance. This will he the
first step in the preparation for the
future day when life insurance will ac

See Gircat Benefit to C ity.
In a letter to Secretary Levy of the
Industrial commission thve gentlemen
who are forming the new company say:
"There are many instances in this
country to prove the assertion that no
other kind of business enterprise con
duces so greatly to the fiscal wealth of
its home city as a legal reserve life
insurance company. The constantly in
creasing flow of premiums into the
banks of the city greatly enhance the
credit facilities and every sound en
terprise depending upon borrowed cap
ital is enabled to expand in a normal
manner. t urthermore, we do not hesi
tate to predict that in time our com
pany will "occupy the same position in
the legal reserve branch of the busi
nesses js now occupied in the assess
ment branch of the Modern Woodmen
of America, bringing proportionate ben
efits to the city, both in advertising and
"For these reasons we consider the
organization of this company an emin
ently fitting subject for the careful con
sideration and hearty cooperation or

Draws Big Audiences. Five acts, ev
ery one of them Al, is what Manager
J. C. Sodiui of the new Family theater
is offering for the first part of the pres
ent week. Three large audiences were
on hand yesterday. Last week the
opening bill was an excellent one, but
this week the management has gone
"one belter," and has placed five of
the very best obtainable acts on the
program. Included in these are Lee
and Chapman in "Wanted, a Donkey;"
the two "lunatics" Hastings and Wil
son; Master Harry doff, the boy chain-
I pie.n triek and fancy roller skater; Al
ice Nice, singing and dancing comedi
enne, and Doblado's trained herd of
sheep. Of these, every act is a feature
in itself, but the management upon
opening the house promised the Rock
Island lovers of vaudeville the best en-
jtertainmcnt to be had in that line, and
, if money can bring the bst of per
formers to the Family, they will be
had. Master Harry Goff is presenting
for the first time to a Uock Island audi
ence an exhibition of triek and fancy
roller skating, and although he is hand
icapped to a great extent by working
.in only a small space, he presented
many clever stunts on the little wheels,
and concludes his exhibition with a
lightning-like ride for a distance of 23
feet down a narrow plank. The grind
I of the rollers, a loud roar, a streak
.and he is safely down, while the audi-
lence almost rises to its feet. For tbJ
j hazardous feat Master Harry is given
i the greatest kind of an ovation, and he
'will be kept on the program, during the
entire week. The present bill will be
kept until Thursday, with
exception of Master Harry
will remain all week.
