effort to frighten policyholders and to
throw general discredit upon the In

ing language, giving the general im
pression that holders of Insurance pol
icies are lo be taxed under the new
law, have been sent out by .the thou
sand, and congressmen and senators
are being deluged with "ready-made"
protests, printed by the companies
and signed by policyholders who think
that something terrible is about to
happen to them under the new bill.
DKMfiNEIJ TO HI RT INC OME! TAX.
The facts of the matter are that cer
tain big companies are trying to drag
a herring across the trail of this in
come tax law in order to secure an
exemption from paying their share of
the income tax to which they are not
entitled. For this purpose they are
trying to "manufacture" public senti
ment against the bill.
The proposed provision places ab
solutely no tax upon the proceeds of
per cent upon the reserve, when id j
fact they earn tar more than this
amount. No one can question the
justice of a nominal tax upon these
classes of accumulated profits, which
are ia excess of current needs."
MEAT OF THE ftTESTIOX.
But tie meat of the whole question
is this: The companies could, if they
desired, and they can under the pro
posed law, separate from real earn
ings the fictitious overcharges which
they tow class as a part of "earnings"
the supposed "dividend" was- in fact ; and which they include in dividends
matter of fact, these companies have
actually been making an overcharge
la the premiums and have simply been
paying back to policyholders the
amounts of this overcharge, so that
a fake. On this ground, and confess
ing the untruthfulness of their former
representations, some of these com
panies went to the treasury depart
ment after the corporation law was
passed and attempted to obtain an
exemption from that tax. The treas
ury department ruled against them.
SOrRCES OF REAL EARM5GS.
There are, however, various other
sources of real earnings which come
! to insurance companies, as was point
ed out by Representative Cordell Hull,
the author of the income tax provi
sion, in the debate on the bill In the

paid back to policyholders If they
should separate these two classes of
income, they would only be taxed on
the real profits. So that the remedy
lies with the companies themselves.
But the companies do not wish to con
fsss that they are telling untruths
when they represent that their "divi-
i dends" amount to such and such
amount. Therefore, they want con
gress to exempt them from all tax.
Their circulars look very impres
sive. They state that the companies
paid $1,333,534.77 in state taxes for
the year 1912. Accepting this figure
as correct, u amounts to just aooui
I one-fifth of 1 per cent.
A FLAX .MATTER OF ARITHMETIC.
As a plain matter of arithmetic
even though these companies continue
to refuse to separate real from fic
titious earnings and are therefore
compelled to pay the proposed federal
income tax of 1 per cent per annum,
and even though they succeed in pass
ing this tax down to the individual
policyholders, it would amount to be
tween 10 and 20 cent3 per year on the

Mrs. Mary E. Sayrs, 1117 Sixth ave
nue, 'lied suJdsnly this morning at r.er
home at 9:30 o'clock. For some time
she had been troubled with asthma
and a few weeks ago she contracted '
a severe ccld which it is thought has
tened her end. Owing to the sudden
ness of her death the coroner was
notified and an inquest will probab'y
be held. At the time of her death
there was no one at home but her lit
tle daughter all the ether members of
the family beip.5 at work. According
to the story told by the little girl her
mcther was seized with a severe
coughing spell and she immediately
notified a physician. By the time the
dector arrived life was extinct.
It seems as though the family have
only resided in Rock Island a short
c!me, coming here from Rio. Owing to
the fact that the members of the
family were not at home it was im
possible to get a complete obituary.
It was learned, however, that she is
survived by her husband and six chil
dren several of whom make 'her
hom3 in Rock Island. She was 55
j'ars of ago.

Conrad, 1104 Fourth avenue, Moline,
fell over dead last evening at S:30.
She had finished her supper and be
gan looking over a book, when the fin
al summons came without the least
warning. Medical aid was secured at
once, but physicians pronounced her
dead. Heart trouble was given as the
cause. Coroner R. C. J. Meyer inves
tigated the death but decided no in

The deceased was born in Germany
April 1. 1852, and came to Davenport
in 1S73 where she was married to
Henry Conrad March 5, 1875. r For a
year the home was in Milan and since
