HAD TO FIGHT THE OLD LINES.
Explaining- the Heavy Expense Fands
nil Bnnkfr-Somerby Testifies.
Tbe heavy expense account was due to
legislative lobbying in fighting the old
line insurance companies' efforts to over
throw the order in eastern states three
years. ago. In regard to the Mutual bank
of Philadelphia be said that Sorr.e-rby has
bat $3,200 stock 4n it, though be is it vice
president and director. He bad no power
to either put the order's money in it or
draw it out. AH the stockholders are
members of the order. He admitted that
there were $500,000 of the order's funds in
the bank when the crash of the Spring
Garden and Keystone banks came, and
when tbe court ordered that $170,000 be
pat Into the bank the supreme officers put
that much more of the order's funds in
rather than lose what it had. There Is
now, he said, some $700,000 of tbe order's
funds in thd bank. "There is," said he,
"more money there than there ought to be,
bat it does not strike me that it ia the
proper thing to appoint a receiver to wreck
this institution or to draw that money out
all at once."
Asserts That tho Order Is Kolvont.
He declared that the point upon which
the suit turned was its present nolreucy,
not the possibility of future insolvency,
and stated that on Jan. 1 last it had in its
benefit fund more than a million, in its
general fund moce than $13,000; in its re
serve fund $l.40U.aO, or total assets of
$3,100,000, ue.-.rly, U cash. Since then its
assets bare increased until it now has
$2,486,374. with an income of $250,000 per
month from assessments, which usually
run $3 per month. With its power of as
sessment it could pay all it will be re-

Further words were then bad between

badly frightened to assist Stevenson, who
went in and carried the wounded girl to
the porch, from which the neighbors
helped him carrv her to his carriage. Ste
venson then took the girl to his home,
