TLIE LA.TE MARK A. JIANNA, U. S. Senator, had
S50,000 life insurance in the New York Life Insurance
Co., which was proniptly paid, because the New York
Life policies are payable nniiiDiATKLY, and, thus bestow lega
.cies, not law suits.
"Pinancial wr.ters estimato that thousands of mlllions of dollars havo been
lost to investora in consequence of tho depreciatton in value of stocks, bonds,
.and such othor securlties as aro dealt lnon the stock oxchanj;os. The same
writers aro also authorltv for the statoment that never beforo has there been
such a larRe nuraber of stnall investors in theso securities as at present.- Thl
would indlcate that many wage-earncra withdrow thoir small accumulattdns
tfrom thesavinps banks, trust coinpanles and.like institutions to rislc thenvin
tocks over Which 'everybody seeraed to ro crazy. TMUer experiencc has
'taught thera how unstablo and untrustworthy1 the stook market is, and how
Teaally the best class of securities can bo robbed of their market value by
speculators. There is not a security dealt in on the Stock Exchange that has
not fallen in market value duriiif,' the last slx months from 5 to50 per cont, and
in some instancos, evon more. This has meant the loss of fortunes to many
persons, and to'thousands of othersitho tyinjf up .indoflnitely of varlous suius.
with the pvospect of heav.y losses ultlmatoly. A speoulativo raania'possessed
the neoplo, and as a result privation now abounds where.abundanco formerly
exlsted. How diilerent is an investment in life assurance from .one in these
apecula'tive securities; every life insurance policy has.a specifled .value, eastly
deterrained, subjoct to no' speculativo manipulation, and redoemablo in accord
ance with its terms. Such redomption is guaranteed by such plethora of assets
as tend to place the life insurance corananies in the front rank- of flnancial in
Rtitutionj of the world. Had the sraall investors preferred to place their inon
cy in life insuranco policies, they would not now be mourning its loss in wild
speculation. Por "ood, safe, satisfyinfc and profitablo investments there Is
othin that can comparo with llfo insuranco policies Lksmks' Weekly.
