NEBRASKA LIFE MEN MEET
First Sinner of the Association for
BANKERS GET SOME NOTICE

Banker OtiRht to U for
Thirty members of the 1-lfe tnder-lblll
writers' Association of Nebraska sat ;
down to a banquet at the l'axton hotel
Saturday evening-, the feast marking the
first regular fall meeting ot the associa
tion. C. Z. Ootild presided over the regular
order of business after which several In- i
terestlng speeches were made. C. N.
Anderson, secretary of the association,
rend an acoount of the national life con
vention, held at Memphis In October, ho
being the only Nebraska member.
The principal speaker ot tho evening
was Thomas W. Blackburn, secretary of
the American Life convention, an or
ganisation composed of clghty-slx younger
life Insurance companies of the country.
Illnekburn on tho Hankers.
Mr. 11 lack bum said that the American
Life convention haa a total volume of
business of over $1,000 OOT.frXi that It
i tan da ready to co-operate with all other
life insurance organizations for beneficial
legislation. He aroused the enthusiasm
of all present by a plea for greater con
sideration of the Insurance) men by the
tanker. On this point Mr. Blackburn
Vou mhtlamen ousht to walk Into the
banks with your noses In the air Instead
of crawling up to the discount window
with humility, begging the banker to dis
count notes for first premiums. Every
time you write a policy you are pro
viding Indemnity against loss to the
iker. You are enriching the community
In which tho banker resides and you are
helping every business man In that com
munity to pay safe, not only against the
emergency of death, but against the pos
sibility of Danlo and business depression.
The banks of America In 1907 would have
suffered a losa of millions had not the
reserves of life insurance companies bal
lasted tha ship through that sudden
squall, Tha business men of America
would have been In despair during that
bankers' spasm had not loan values and
surrenders backed them against their own
bankers and protected them from disas

paralysed with fear and refused to per
form his contract with his own deposit

If I were a banker, the most welcome
visitor to my town and my bank would
be the life Insurance solicitor. I should
help him with every prospect possible

help him in writing life Insurance among
my customers. I wonld do It for selfish
reasons and would be ashamed to ask
him to dtvlds commissions or aooept an
extortionate discount on his paper. Thn

In the main, the draft of Nebraska's
as prepared to date, follows pretty
closely the compensation act of tho state
of Wlrconsln, which went Into effect
a little over a year ago. In Wisconsin,
the law Is "elective," meaning that em
ployers may elect its to whether or not
they will be governed by the compensa-
tton taw, which requires them to pay
benefits far all Industrial accidents re
sulting In disability or death, regardless
of tha cause of the accident. Should
employers not "elect" to come under th
provisions of the compensation act, they
aro denied tha right to set forth "as
sumption of risk" or the negligence ot a
fellow servant as a defense.
The proposed Nebraska law, as dVattod,
Is "compulsory" In form, applying to
employers ot every description. Includ
ing farming operations and employers ot
domestic servants. Assumption ot risk
and the fellow servant doctrlno are also
abolished as a defense In Nebraska, If
the proposed law becomes effective.
Out of the fifteen states which have
already adopted workmen's compensation
laws, In only tyo states Nevada and
Washington Is the plan compulsory upon
tha employer. In tho other thirteen
states It Is elective.
A comparison of the draft of the bill
for Nebraska with the laws ot other
stntes discloses the fact that Nebraska's
boneflts for Injured employes, with one
or two exceptions, are higher than those
contained In the laws of other states.

At the regular weekly luncheon of the
Nebraska State Fire Prevention asso
ciation held at the Henshaw hotel last
Monday, an Interesting paper entitled
"Electrical Inspections?' was read by E.
S. Freeman, newly elected president of
the association. The paper dealt with
some of the details of electrical con
struction with a view to preventUjn ot
fires caused" by defects. This was the
first of a series of papers to be react
at these luncheons for educational pur
poses, and was well received by the
score or more of members present. W.
S. Harding of Nebraska City, Is the new
vice president of the Nebraska State
Fire Prevention association, succeeding
A. J. Love, and F. M. Pond of Omaha,
t re-elected secretary and treasurer.
The new executive committee Is com

MANY ACCIDENT CLAIMS
DUE TO AUTO MISHAPS
Because of tho many auto accidents
that have occurred in Omaha In the laat
week or two a great number of claims
are rolling into local Insurance offices,
both on accident policies carried by the
injured and upon liability Insurance
covering tho drivers.
This frequent occurrence or .serious
automobile and street car accidents Is
causing Insurance men much concern and
will probably caure a ralso in accident
rates to cover losses through automobile

So many articles have been written
on tho subject of gasoline hazard that it
would appear that further discourse on
the subject were unnecessary.
Qasollno devices are being continually
put on the market which are supposed
to be fool proof, but it does seem that
the fool killer gets in his work Just the
some. Judging by the accounts of acci
dents which appear dally in pur news
papers, and that either people In general
have not been sufficiently Instructed as
to the dangers which exist in connection
with the use of gasoline, or are crim
inally careloss as to Its use. There aro
so many new hazards developing and so
many old hazards coming under the
hands of persons who aro Ignorant ot
them that the wonder is thero aro not
A curious fire in connection with gaso
line occurred recently. In a fireproof
garago building, In which there was no
artificial fire of any kind, it became
necessary to empty out the gasoline sup
ply tank, and a team of horses drawing
a gasollno tank, wagon was drivon into
the building over the concrete floor.
During the process of emptying the tank
one of tho horses, In stamping on the
concrete flooring, struck a spark from
its shoe. The room being filled with
gasoline vapor, immediately became a
roaring furnace, causing a most dis
llecently a woman undertook to clean
a silk waist by submerging it In gasoline
In a washbowl, Bhe wont away for ten
minutes to give it time to "soak," after
closing the door. When she returned,
she rubbed the silk briskly between her
hands to rub out the stains. The fric
tion of the silk gensratod a spark of
electricity and an explosion killed the'
woman and burned the house. A news
paper, discussing the facts with owlish
wisdom after they were demonstrated,
says: "If the woman had known that
gasoline evaporates rapidly, that tho gas
It makes is seven times more dangerous
thun gunpowder, that a single spark
would cause a terrible explosion and that
one may generate an electric spark by
rubbing silk cloth If the woman had
known all this there would have been
no fire In the house and she would
probably be alive today, and there la no
reason why people should not know these
ordinary facta of life."
It is probable that nine out of ten per
sons do know that gasoline Is very
dangerous and do exercise reasonable,
intelligent care In handling it; but nine
out of ten do not know the details of its
danger, and probably not one In five
hundred , would know that It would be
posslblo under the circumstances to gen
erate that fatal spark of electricity, as
It waa generated in this case.
Qasollno Is doubly as dangerous as
poisons, because it endangers property as
well as life, and Is as Insidious In Its
workings as the most subtle poison. Yet
it can be bought and sold Indiscrimi
nately, with practically little attention
to proper warnings of Its danger, while
poisons cannot be sold in dangerous
quantities without registration or warn
ing. It might be a good thing to require
a danger label to be pasted on every
package of gasoline sold, containing slm
nlo Instructions as to Its safe handling
and warning ot tho danger ot Its carelesj
use. FRANK T. B. MARTIN.
