Roberts, tho alleged pol t gam ist,
elected to Congress from Utah, is still
denied his soat, a speeial committee
having the matter in ohargo and the
report will not come in in a hurry. The
Republlcani are against his being

the Democrats save tho leaders who
are for seating him on technical
grounds and trying him afterwards. It
Is a distinction without a difference
and it is best once for all to have it
declared that one wife is enough for a
Congressman. Roberta Is an English
man born, naturalized in this country,
and while moving he should have gone
East to Turkey or Morocco. We are
opposed to all trusts and monopolies
and especially this one which Roberts
Is undertaking to organize. The latest
news is that Roberts will not be seated.

Why I insured in The New York Life
Xt is the Oldest international Life Insurance Company m tho
world, and is supervised by eighty-two Governments.
It is the strongest life company in tho world.
ASSETS (Januar) 1, 181)0,)
It is :i purely mutual Company. There aro no stockholders. All its
assets, surplus and earnings belong exclusively to policy-hold
ers, who incur no personal liability.
[t has an honorable record of lifty-four years, during all of which
time it bus steadily incroased in strength and prosperity.
Its policies are incontestable from date of issuo.
Its policies us now issued contain no restriction as to residence, travel
or occupation, as to habits of life, or as to manner, tlmo or
place of death.
The sole eon dition is that if premiums are paid tho Company will
certainly pay the policy immediately in tho event it becomes
a claim by death, either in one sum or a limited number of in
stalments at option or insured, and thus leave a widow or an
estate a legacy and not a law-suit.
II- policies cannot bo forfeited after being one year in force, the in
sured receiving extended insurance, or after two years, oither
extended insurance or a paid-up policy.
Its policies will be re-instated at any time during the five jr.ars fol
lowing the non-payment of any premium, if evidence of in
surability is satisfactory to tho Company and non-forfeiture
provisions have become operative.
It gives a grace of one month in the payment of premiums.
You can borrow money from tho Company any time ou demand at
5 per cent per annum, after your policy has boon two years in
You do not have to die to win. If you live 10, 15, 20, 25 or HO years
you can settle your policy in any way that best suits your cir
cumstances at the time?tor cash, paid-up insurance annuity,
or other options.
If you live to the end of the term you will have made a substantial
provision for yourself in old age, and if you die before the end
of the term you will have made a substantial provision for
your family or yo^ r estate.
It is the most valuable estate you will loavo behind you, more certain
in its results than lands, bouses, slocks or bonds, as its value
does not rise and fall with the market.
Tho New York Life Insurance Company is t be only company in which
you can get ALL of these benefits.
You want the very best?the most privileges and the fewest restric
