LjjJ laws of Mich 1**1) and the financial statement* submitted show
that thev are prosperous and well established. lam inclined to
favor the I’nited States Health and Accident Cos., however, In
view of the fact that it is a Michigan company and the money that Is paid
.in premiums tends to stay in MicMgun.
There was considerable rritiiistn of the methods of the North Am
erican Accident Insurance t’o. in the investigation of casualty Insurance
companies which was conducted in Detroit last fall. Franchises which
were not exactly connneudable were found In connection with the admin
istration of the affairs of this company and a formal ceusure of them was
made in the report. The companies affected by this report, however, gen
erally took steps Immediately to change their methods of doing business
along the lines suggested by the investigation, and It Is prohnble that the
practices which were censured have been discontinued.
The I’nited Suites Health and Accident To. came out of the Investiga
tion with a clean record.
Your choice should be very largely a matter of personal opinion. The
policies offered bv the standard companies doing this business are \cry
similar and as they are subject to the supervision of the state insurance
department, the policyholder is pretty well protected. The only differences
lit in the methods of treating the policyholders when claims are presented,
and as these have been subjected to close scruFlny it is likely that there
will be considerable care taken to see that everybody gets a square deal.
My own preference, however, would be the Michigan company because
I have an Inclination to foster home enterprises as much as possible. It
must be understood that there are a great many good companies doing
business In Michigan, including several which have their home offices in
the state.

to inform you that from the ffrsl so
the last your statement la absolutely
and wholly false, and to publicly
charge you with knowing It to be
false when you made it.
"1 have in no way sought to hamper

which has been necessary for the
proper conduct, or the comfort of
your office. On the contrary you have
been treated with greatest consider
ation, and you know it. I do, how
ever, insist that as a public official
you are entitled to no greater rights
than any other county officer; that
you have no right to contract bllla ai
your will and pleasure, without first
consulting the department to which I
belong, and. ao far as I have the pow
er. I rid going to continue to examine
and audit the bills presented here for
payment, und when 1 find one that I
believe not to boa proper one, one
that is not u proper charge against
the county. I shall oppose its pay
ment, even U iu so doing I am dally
subjected to the unpleasant notoriety
your purchase of a society manual
has Just caused. If doing this entitles
me to the name of ‘Tom Cat,' which is
not original with you. well and good.
I have long since ceased to worry
about criticism directed against me
on that account. * • •
“I have never had any intimate
business or iK>rsonal acquaintance
with the J. W. Werner you refer to:
I have no intimate or business rela
tions with Ed. Russel!, Henry Jacobs
or John Marquette. These last three
are casual acquaintances whom I may
have met in the public cases, but 1
have never had any conferences with
ihem. either public or private, either
about you or any one else, and any
nutetnent to the contrary is wholly
and absolutely false.
“insofar as Mr. Churchill is con
cerned I am willing to admit that 4ie
was originally employed upon rtiy
recommendation, but his work was
done almost wholly under direction
of the prosecuting attorney's office,
without interference or dictation from
this department, and if his services
were not satisfactory the board of
auditors had no complaint from Judge
Van Zile. your immediate predeces
sor, and none from you until you had
replaced him. Further, if this depart
ment had desired to hamper your
work they could have easily retained
Mr. Churchill as an attache of this
office. But, as a matter of fact, Mr.
Shepherd, it is common talk about
tewn that Mr. Churchill’s place had
been promised by you to another be
fore you assumed charge of the office,
and before you had any opportunity to
Judge of the character of the service
he was rendering the county.
“Cp to thiß day, Mr. Shepherd, you
also know that I have In no way op
posed the payment of any of the ex
pense bills Incurred by you in your
raids, because I have believed that
vou were guided by honesty in mak
ing them. But Information comes to
me dally that your so-called crusade
is a sham one; that you raid the dens
of Iniquity for the purpose of making
campaign material to use with the
good people, and. then, seeking out
the proprietors of these same places,
you assure them that are their
friend, that you love them, and trust
that ~ they 4ove —you,—The truth—Of—
these statements is now under care
ful investigation, and. if I am satis
fied as to the truth of them, I as
sure you that henceforth I shall op
pose tne payment of all expenses in

there are public-spirited citizens fool
