In 1877-'78 the New Y'ork Life's New Business was 812,085,113 Less than the Mutual's. In 1887-'88 the New Y'ork Life's New Business was 858,781,882 More than the Mutual's. Iu 1877-'78 the New Y'ork Life's Total Income was $21,535,317 Leas than the Mutual's. 1887-'88 the New Y'ork Life's Total Income was $2,873,830 Less than the Mutual's. 1877 and 178 the New York Life's Ratio of Death-Losses and Ex In 'In penses to Income was 9.52 per cent. More than tho Mutual s. In 1887 and 1888 tho New Y'ork Life's. Ratio of Death Losses and Ex penses to Income was 9.88 per cent. Less than the Mutual's. NOTE ON GAINS IN SURPLUS, Of the Mutual Life's Gain in Surplus, nearly one-half (8710,100) came from profits credited to "Profits on bonds, Mocks, or real estate sold, contin gent guarantee account." The Mutual Life's dividends paid were 8502,345 (18.93 per cent.) less in 1888 than iu 1887. Its surplus earned was 8298,930 less than the New-York Life's, on larger assets and more in turance. The Mutual Life has been issuing Five-Yeur Dividend Policies since 1884, and Ten, Fifteen, and Twenty but as vet has made no apportionment of surplus tnereon Su SurplifS of the New-York Life is nearly aB large as the Mutual Life's Total Surplus, while the New-York Life has a Special Surplus of over Six Mil lion dollars for Policies upon which dividends aic paid at the end of periods S lion dollars for 1'olicies tinon of Ten, Fifteen and Twenty years. The Mutual Life's Liabilities are 838,471,110 more than the New York Lifo'n. 1. The New-Yo i k Life's New Business' wai 821,073,097 (21 per cent.) more than the Mutual's, The New-York Life's Expenses were 8555,507 less than the Mutual's. ' 2. Tho Mutual Life's Mean Amount at Risk was only seventeen per cent, moro than the New-York Life's, but the Mutual Life's Death-Losses were nearly sixty-four per tent, more than the New-York Life's. 3. The New York Life's Annuity Business is larger than that of all other American companies combined. As Annuities are the opposite of Insurances, it follows that, in caso of a wide-spread epidemic, the New York Life would suffer less than other companies, as a heavy death-rate among annuitants would tend to offset a heavy death-rate among insures. In conclusion I would say, 1 leave it to the public, after a careful perusal of the above figures, to say whetlior the Mutual Life Insurance Co. has to-day a claim to advertise itself as tho best Company payiug the largest dividends, C. 0. 3ERGER, General Special Executive Agent Ntv York Life Insurance Co. tJtrtiti --mtii ?'-ww-iff,VS-r ; -j-. - n.t&iE'Sftar nut Von 5 Gained Moro Assets & Surplus. 6 Golnod Moro Insur.

I. i M Tho Equitnblo Agent Grnoofully "Swiino Out" and Tho Now York Agent Stupidly " Falls in Ovor His Head." To WnoM It May Conckun: tho agent for tho Equitable wisely declines to have the As very col- orcd pentleman in his company's woodpile, exposed to tbe public, by "positively iiml flatly" refusing t'o accept my published challenge nml have the question of superior merit decided before a committee compe tent to pass judgment, he is, of course, free to continue his peculiar methods of illustrating superior ex cellence by daily publishing bewild ering columns of misleading com parisons; although it must be con ceded that he makes a sad com mentary ou the intelligence of his own townspeople when he in fers that the average reader will readily understand from bis publish ed assertions that the Equitable is "unequalled, peerless, alone," etc., etc., and still admits that he would be unable to make that fact clear to a picked committee selected from the brainiest of his fellow citizens meeting for that express purpose. Anything more absurdly ridiculous than that portion of the advertise ment nlluding to the "reckless finan cial management and ultimate ruin" of the Largest Life Insurance Com pany in the World, would be diOl cult indeed to find unless it were the circus circular advertisement of tbe New Y'ork Life appearing in the same issue of the Bui.MvriN. If, however, the Mutual Life with over 32 million dollars more assets and over 9,700 more members than either of its would-be rivals, shows signs of speedy dissolution from the Equitable comparisons; its condi tion must be deplorable indeed when judged by the magic lantern figures of the New Y'ork Life, full of enough doleful prophecies to make "Mother Shipton"' turn over in her grave with envy. Heedless cf the fact that the "most clubs are always found under the best applo tree," and fully aware that the Mutual Life is the best apple tree in the insurance or chard, the facetious agent for the New York Life franclically seizes a stock "bill po'stcr" advertisement, made to order many months ago by Mie company's statistical wizard, adds a small paragraph at the top and bottom to give an air of origin ality and freshuess to the produc tion, and then rushes into print without even a shaddw of excuse for his most aggressive blunder. People living in glass houses, -hould always be careful about tin owing stones, and the agent of the New York Life should remember that at least a portion of the intelli gent public read the daily papers, and such things as refusing to pay the Lewis claim in Honolulu.

The Sew York Lire Itinurnnrp Co.. was chartered May 21, 1841, under the name of "Thu Nautilus Insur ance Company" with authority to transact a lire and marine business. April 18, 1843, the charter was nmended authorizing the addition of life insurance. Again, April 5, 1849, the charter of the Nautilus was further amended limiting the business to life insurance and changing the name to that of The New York Life Ins. Co. I know of no insurancq organization whoso literature is more deceptive, whose statetnentj arc less reliable, or tbe practice of whose representatives is moic rcjjU-ehensiblc. In proof of which I refer to the following: The New Y'ork Life claims to have ori ginated, in 1800 the non-forfeiture feature in life insurance. Ucfore the New York Life Ins. Co. existed even in name, this was the practice of the Mutual Life. (See 3d annual report of the Company,) and iu 1840 (3 years before the New lork Life was born) Mr. Latimer It. Shaw of New York, who had in sured Fcbiuary4, 1843, under policy No. 9, retired from the Mutual Life with a cash surrender vjilue, or the full equity of his policy. Mr. Beers, President of the New Y'ork Life Ins. Co. swore before a legislative com mittee of New Y'ork (see Manning's Eoport, p. 255) that no officer of the Company gives security for Ike jidel ity with ichich they discharye their duties. And Now Mr. Bcrgcr has the Opportunity to Glvo His City a Charity of Or.o Thousand Dollars! As it would require the entire news paper space and more money thau I have to spare to untwist the multitude of figures tortured into grotesque shapes by the New York Life sta tistician: I will simply quote Mr. Berger's concluding remarks: ' I leave it to the public to say whether the Mutual Life Ins. Co. has to-day a claim to adveitise it self as the best company paying the largest dividends." I would cheerfully state that the above sen timent suits me exactly. I too am both ready and willing to have the public decide, and with the earnest desire to arrive at that decision I will again agree to instantly forfeit one thousand dollars to any Hono lulu charity if Mr. Berger will meet me under a similar agreement and prove before any jointly selected committee of Honolulu business men that the New Y'ork Life has either earned or paid as great pro fits to its members as has the Mu tual Life. Or I will agree to sub mit statements of policies issued by the Mutual Life giving the names of insured, number of policies, date of issue, amounts paid by the insured, and amounts returned to them, and if either Mr. Berger or Mr. Carlwright can pro Executive Special fc FISCHER FIAJSOS a o .., Renowned for Tone and Durability ! 80,000 111 Usef GUARANTEED FOR 5 YEARS.

And if Mr. Bcrgcr should decide as did Mr. Carlwright that this is not "open manly argument," then I will agree to compare with him policies issued by both Co.s on the lives of Hono lulu citizens and show a decided su periority in favor of the Mutual Life right here in Honolulu. If Mr. Hcrger don't wish to post a forfeit at nil, I will now make the following proposition: Mr. Fred. C. Lowrcy of this city is one of the many pro minent business men of Honolulu who appear to be well content with their policies in the Mutual Life. I mention Mr. Lowrey's policy, as it is upon the plain ordinary life plan, of which plan both Equitable and New York Life have thousands of policies in force. And I will in stantly forfeit one thousand doliarB if cither Equitable or New Y'ork Life can show as large a profit on any similar contract over issued by said companies, as the amount of pro lit apportioned by the Mutual Life to Mr. Lowrey's policy. Mr. J. R. Bticb telof Akron, Ohio, who is the founder of the Buchtel College and Presi dent of the New York Life local board, writes as follows: "I hereby certify that I have a policy on my life iu tho New Y'ork Life Insurance Company, dated January 1873; alsoone in the Mu tual Life Insurance Company of New York, 'issued at same time and on same plan,' and that the percentage of dividend to premium for the year in the Mutual Life was twice as large as that of the New York Life, 'which included in addi tion to the regular dividend my share of the protlts in the so-called 'Local Board.' J. R. BucnTKL." Mr. Robt. S. McTCce, a prominent wholesale merchant of Indianapolis, Ind., and son-in-law of the Presi dent of 'the United States, certifies over his signature that he insured in the Mutual Life and the New York Life for S10,000"in each com pany at the same date, on the samo plan and for the same premium anil that while he has paid exactly the same amount to each corporation, the Mutual Life lias given him ! dividend of S5.403.00 and the New York Life only 2,753.62.
