RETALIATION BILL SIGNED.
THE GOVERNOR TELLS WHY HE AP? PROVED IT. |0 THINKS IT IS JUST HUT NOT RETROACTIVE. ANTJ HE CONSIPF.RS IT ?????????.E THAT THE STATE Yv'TXL. HAVE OOCASIOM TO ??G??' IT AOAINST ANY POIt EI IN 0????????:??. Albany, F?b. W.?Ooverrnor Morton to-day siirned Assemi'lyman Hostel'? bill requiring the Ktite Su? perintendent of Insurance to r.f\ise to Issue licer.-; s to Insurane? companies of foreign countries whoso countries have shut out New-York Stats ruminantes from dotn* business therein, n:id also to revoke the ??cennos of companies of such countries ?Already doing business In this State. The MS was Introduced early in the session at the Instance of the lar ?;-.st three American life insur? ant- companies, the principal office? of aduc?a are !n Mew-Tork, as a retallstory meneur? against the Prussian Government. Th it country some time ago by Its stringent rules made it practically Impossible for the New-York rompani?e to do business there, and the Fxiuit.i'lc withdrew. This was followed by the expulsion of the New-York Life and Mutual Life itsurance companies under decrees o? tlie .Minister ? of the Interior of Prussia. Superintendent Pierce under the provisions of the Irw sinned to-.i,iy is compelled to revoke the li? ce .sew to do business in tills State of the Prussian National and Aachen-Munich Fire Insurance com? panies of Prussia, and to refuso the application of tli* Megdelmrg Fire Insurance Company for per? mission to do business In this State. In signing the bill Governor Morton n'.ed tie fol? lowing memorandum: State of New-York. Executive Chamber, Albany, Feb. ?. Memorandum Bled with Assembly bill entitled "An act to amend tlie br?9Uranee law relative to the cancelling of the authority of foreign companies." upprovei!. This bill seeks to amend section "'! of the Insur? ance law? tir adding a provision for the canee.latlon of trie authority of foreign Insurance companies, whenever a company organised under the Iswa ? f tills State is excluded fr,?m a foreign c ?untry and is prohibited from transacting business therein, after its compliance witn reasonable laws p-latiny to deposits o:' money or securities with ti.e Govern? ment of such country. The lmn,odiate occasion of the pasrase of this bill 1b said to be the difficulties or c t.structlons en? countered by several Neu-York life Insuran ,?:.. pati.es m transacting their buslnesa ir. a certain foreign country; an! It is alleged, and not de Hied, that these comparii? s had complied, or offer? 1 to comply, with tlie demande mad? .?> a them; bat that, notwithstanding thl? compliance, they ?were arbitrarily eX.-;u :,,i u!i ? prohibited from trans? acting busiiorss iri that country. T.'.ev hai been for several years engaged in business there, and ll Is not claimed that they had failed to comply with any of the requlretnente imposed upon them by the Government of rli.u country. Their exclusion, un? der the circumstances, seems to Justify some action by the Legislature, and this bill was prepared for the purpose of providing mesns to enable th.? In? surance Department to properly protect our home corporations oy requiring the Superintendent i?, ? x clude foreign corporations from the privilegi I :: . isscting buslnesa here, wh. r. the lise privilegi le denied to oir companies desiring to transa t business in a foreign country, RSTAUATIOM DEFENDED. While retaliatory legislation Is not usually to be conimeli led, i: ?OiouM be enacted for purposes uf eelf-defence and the protection of our busln? ll i- r.-ste whenever ,t appears that any other State or , iry la unwilling to accord lo our cltlsena r*a <? . . .? :. |p .: privil?ge! within lia domin? ions. It scemi only reasonable that for? eign oorporat ?na should not ??? permitted to do bualness here when th?? Government und? r which they ar?? organised leniti to our corporations like privileges.

This vests the super? intendent with very large discretion and he might, perhaps. under thla authority, refuse a certificate to a corporation applying t?> do business in this State! but i: does not give him any authority to cancel existing certificate??.

The opponent? of the blil also claim that it will seriously affect the business Interests of the State by depriving our people of th? opportunity to ob? tain adequate fire Insurance. This objection c??m?? from large commercial Interests, and the protest l? certainly entitled to serious consideration, but an examination of the subje.-t leads me to think that the possible harmful resoli? are overestimated, and that no such mischief will ensue aa is predici, d by those who object to the bill. The law can probably have no retroactive effect, so us to authorise the eiiperiiittmlent to cancel the authority of foreign companies upon ?n application based up in an order already mad?? by a foreign Governo.t-nt. and his aid can only be Invoked .n case of a refusal of an application hereafter ma ie by a New-York company ; ir permission to transa? ? It? business in a foreign country. Whether su -h an application will be made by a Ncw-Yurk company to ? foreign ?Jovernment, and whether, If made, it will be refused, can only be conjectured M cannot be assumed tn advance, and the bar? posstbll ty "f such a result is not sufficient reason for the dis? approval of the measure, ?rhlfh, in Iti ?renerai scope, li propi-r for the protection of Xew-Yorh corporations. Besides, !h.? present Insurance law permits our clt Isena to obtain Inaurane? from corporation? which are not authorised to do buslnesa In ihi?

There appears to be little doubt that the Govern? ine"??; bonds of the new Issue on which the tlrst instalment of 20 per cent of the purchase price was not paid by last Saturday will be allotted by the Secretary of the Treasury to the Syndicate headed by J. Plerpont Morgan, at its bid of 110.??>?77 for the whole $1??",.?"",'?^), or any part thereof. .Mr. Morgan said yesterday: "The bonds on which the first Instalment has not bean paid beloni? to us. There can be no question on that point. We have made no demand for the bonds. We do not need to. The bonds cannot Le given to anybody else." How many bids are In default Is not known. Will lam Graves who did not pay In anything on the Id..'/.?,??) allotte?l to him, and could not dispose of hi* allotment, clings to the notion that he Is still <?ntitled to the bonds. He visited Assistant United States Treasurer Jordan at the Sub-Treasury yes? terday and wanteil to know If gold would be r?? celved from him In payment for botuls. Ho was told that It woul?! not. Ho was too late. Then he tele graph?'d to the Seer-tary of the Treasury to ascer? tain If bonds would be delivered In New-York If he Immediately paid for them In full with gold. The reply, received from Assistant Secretary William K. Curtis w'as: "Bonds ar.? Issued only upon receipt at this office of the original certificate representing payment therefor." Thereupon he telegraphed asking for an extension of time, and received a reply from Assistant Secre? tary <'ur:'.s: "Your application for an extension of time Is de? clined by tne Department." Mr. (Jiav.s called up the office of the Secretary of the Treasury on the telephone the otf.er day and asked for the Sccmary. John G. Carlisle. Mr. Car? lisle was out. Mr. Curtis came to the telephone, and after a little shut Mr. Graves off by saying: "We do not do business over the telephone." It was said that the Morgan syii?llcate had de postted gold in the Sub-Treasury and banks acting as depoBltorles to cover the allotment to them of bonds on which there had been a default by the or.glnal bidders I>? posits to date In the Suh-Tr"asury on bond ac? count are, In round numbers, Ul.tMMO, and wlth drawals sir: e February h, when the deposits began, have been 18,000,000.
