The C ronnde gives as an llmuMsation of the
value of the "trained observation," which in
surance commissioners display, a list of the
t*enty-tour companies carrying risks on the
lately burned New York piano factory, with
the remark that of the number "sixteen were
not authorized to do business" in that State.
There are some very ugly stories, told with
much emphasis, about the tax, to call it by a
mild name, levied upon insurance companies
by the insurance department of the State of
New York, and if the present Superintendent
be in office when the next Legislature meets
there will be employment for a special inves
tigating committee. Doubtless Superinten
dent Smyth will demand such a committee.
The State Insurance Commissioners are
holding a convention at St. Paul, Minn.
"Most of the session will be devoted to cofI
dential conference." JOst so; we are the su
pervisors; other people have no right to ob
serve our methods or our movements; we do
not need watching. Well, that is probably
true; the only thing insurance commissioners
really need is, notice to quit.
The necessity for good building laws and
their rigid enforcement has been urged by
our chief fire engineer, and advocated by this
paper, but as yet no action has been taken.
And now, as is always the case after a disas
ter, New York is manifesting sonme interest in
the matter, which, it is to be hoped, will not
end in talk. Our insurance men should take
holdbtf this question and not let it rest until
something is done here; they have the power,
and it ,s their duty to move in the matter.
Will they do It ?
Speakipg of the war upon British insur
ance companies,' the ..,estigator discourses

be applied to local and agency company re
Whatever there is of seeming force to the
anti-Anglican argument here is derived
wholly from the logic in favor "home insur
ance,' which usedto be regded with some
favor, but has not been highly esteemed since
the great Chicago and Boston fires. The es
sence of that logic was "keep your money at
homel" but when the day of disaster came
and the "money at home" was burned up to
gether with the property it insured, those
who had been unpatriotic enough to send their
money abroad for indemnity had reason to
Heavy local taxation of insurance com
panies of other countries or States, with dis
crimination in favor of local companies, leads
only to bad results; and those bad results
come in two ways: first, by driving or keep
ing out good agency companies, and leaving
the community to insure itself, which no com
munity can afford to do; and, second, by in
ducing retaliatory legislation by other States,
the effect of which is to force the home com
panies either to submit to overtaxation (which
is always an evil) wherever they plant an
agency, or to unduly concentrate their risks,
which is the greatest danger an insurance
company or its policy-holders ever have to
encounter, and which, il event of a large con
flagration, leads inevitably and necessarily to

ANOTHIER ICK MENATOR.
ST. LOUis, Sept. 15.-Within the last few
hours the condition of United States Senator
Lewis V. Bogy has become alarming, and his
friends do not think he will rally. Since his
return from Colorado, where he has been all
summer, he has been confined to the house
most of the time. The complaint is malarial
fever, contracted in Washington, which he
has been unable to shake off. To-day his vi
tality has been at such a low ebb that it was
feared he would not live longer than a few
hours, and the Catholic clergy were called in
to receive confession preparatory to a fatal
termination. Quite a number of the Senator's
personal and political friends were at his resl
denc, fearing that the end was near, but at
midnight he rallied somewhat and was rest
ing easy. It is feared that the old man's days
are about numbered and there is already can
vassing for a successor to fill the unexpired
