PROBING INSURANCE SLOW
TO LAP INTO XEXT YEAR.
Committee Will Have to Ask Next
Legislature for Continuance.
Th« legislative insurance committee has been
forced at last to the conclusion that its actual
investigation will lap over well Into 1906, and
that doubtless it will be necessary to ask of the
next legislature a continuation of the commit
tee's powers. This, at least, those close to tho
committee and its work conceded, last night,
deeplte Senator D. W. Armstrong's repeated
declaration early In the investigation, that it
trcu'.d close before December 31.
The belief that the interpretation perforce
must be prolonged is based on a number of con
siderations. Among th« contributory factor*, it
is understood, are the far reaching importance
of the investigation, the newly realized depth
end complexity of the. subject, the intention to
extend the investigation's scope to certain fra
ternal societies, and last but perhaps not least,
the exasperating absence from the State of a
veritable cloud of Important witnesses.
'I:, the event of any of us not being- re
elected," a committeeman told the reporter, "it
will be doubtless necessary for the legislature
to reoppoiut us a committee."
The Equitable trustees at the meeting yester
day voted to recommend for election to the
board of directors John D. Kernan, of Oneida
County, and William C. Kedfield, of Brooklyn.
Mr. Kernan is the son of ex-United States Sen
ator Francis Kernan. He is a Railroad Com
missioner for the State of New- York, and a
lawyer in Utica and this city. Mr. Redfleld Is
the head of the firm of J. H. Williams & Co., of
Brooklyn, manufacturers of drop castings. He
•was prominent in tha public life of that borough
under the Low administration.
G. H. Parker, secretary of the trustees, made
an official statement, which follows. In part:
The trustees of the Equitable stock met at the
Buckinghitm Hotel on Thursday and prepared a
circular to be s'"nt to every polieyholder. This in
vites an expression of the wishes of the policy
holders touching the selection from their number
of the persons to b« voted for by the trustees for
directors of the society at the annual meeting to be
held on the first. "Wednesday in December next.
It will be recalled that Grover Cleveland, in his
letter to the legislative insurance committee, re
ported that the trustees had been disappointed by
the relatively few responses to their appeal to the
policyiiolders to express their wishes as to the
nomination of directors, and that this indifference
«-aa an obstacle to the trustees 1n their attempt
to effect trie practical mutualization of the society.
When the legislative committee resumes Its
sessions next Tuesday, its counsel, it is said,
will Bf>k Richard A- McCurdy. the president of
the Mutual Life, as to the company's relations
with the architectural firm of Clinton & Rus
sell, which has Its offices In the building. It is
understood that members of this firm disclaim
any relationship whatever to the McCurdys. and
deny either having enjoyed any monopoly or
having received any excessive commissions or
other unduly preferential treatment.
A final extension of time, until October 20. has
been granted to the defendants In the suit
brought by the Attorney General against the
Equitable and Its directors. Most of the writs
were, returnable about September 15. and had
been extended to October 16. So far only a
few answers have been received, but the New-
York office cannot tell the precise number filed
In Albany. By placing October 20 as the final
limit it is hoped to have argued all the demur
rers in the November term.
This weeks Ippu*» O* '< "haritieF." published
to-day, contains an editorial on 'Directors in
Insurance and Philanthrope y." emphasizing the
uignificance to charitable institutions of Jacob
H- Scif«T« i -««flßfs*.r.ation of insurance difficulties
before the leg-islative committee— that directors
do net direct-
The editorial pays in part
The system of unpaid, self-perpetuating: boards
of directors Is on trial In charitable sor-iftiei" and
Institutions no less than in business corporations
and •emi-flduclary Institutions, such as pavings
lank? and Insurance companies. The description
of the boards of managers of charitable societies
as self-p«ri)fcuia;ing would appear inaccurate if
one judged solely by the methods usually pre
scribed for ih<- election of members. Nominally,
they are usually elected by the members; that is
to say as a rule, by the contributors to the in
■titutlon. In fact, however, so small a number of
members participate in the annual election that
them Is generally no opposition to the continuance
of those whose terms expire. If they wish to re
main, or the executive officers desire that tne>
6 TMs 'is not necessarily objectionable of itself,
for. If the existing administration tea good one. it
should as a rule be continued. The difficulty is
that the process Is without discrimination. An
antiquated; unprogressive and Inefficient adminis
tration Is continued as readily as one or the
opposite description. Again, there ib seldom suUi
a real audit of finances or critical scrutiny or
actual work done as would truide the direr-tors to
an independent and thoroughgoing Judgment as
to whether the expenditures have been judicious
an«i th« work faithfully and efficiently done.
There Is a widespread misconception d wlia..
membership in a board of directors means or
should mean. Men and women of prominence arc
60licited to allow their names to be used with We
distinct understanding ihat absence from meetings
Irregular attendance, or even a complete, neglect of
all the duties will be overlooked for the sake or
the financial or other Incidental advantage winch
the institution will gain from the mere fart that
•'.■ names are allowed to appear. Social considera
tions sometimes lead to the selection of directors
■who re flagrantly unfit for the particular position
to be rilled.
GOVERNORS TO ACT.
Will Demand Insurance Legislation
in lowa and South Dakota.
(By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Sioux City. lowa. Oct. 13.— -In signed state
ments Governor Cummins of lowa and Governor
Elrod of South Dakota express an intention to
demajid insurance legislation.
Governor Cummins was asked to go into de
tails regarding his views, but replied that, In
asmuch as he was engaged In formulating them
Into four well denned demands In his forthcom
ing message to the legislature, he deemed It un
■rtee to do more at present than indicate his
purpose in a general way of urging stringent
laws to protect the public against such "graft
ing-" as has been disclosed by the investigation
at New-York.
Governor Elrod went into the matter at
greater length in his letter, saying that the evil
of present conditions is so patent as to demand
immediate and sweeping remedy.
"1:; my own opinion." he added, "the fault is
lot so much due to the weakness of existing 1
SJMi as to lax enforcement of them. One of the
O-fIK-uliies is that boards of directors and com
nUssioijs do not do their duty and officials are
stained lit one capacity too long.
"I believe every official who handles insurance
money should have his tenure limited to one
comparatively brief term. This would effectu
ally do away with the grafting' that grows with
the long tenure of office. 1 am sure much good
will come of the present agiuuion."

Say 8 W abash Victory Shows Stock
holders Trust Management.
George J. Gould, with President Jeffery of the
Denver and Rio Grande and the party which ac
companied them to Toledo on Monday to attend
the annual meeting of the Wabnsih Railroad Com
pany, returned yesterday to the city, except Presi
dent Delano of the Wabash, who wont to Chicago
from Toledo. All were in excellent spirits and
received many congratulations upon the victory
oier ex-President Ramsey in the contest for con
trot of the Wabush system.
Mr. Gould, when asked whether his \ictory did
not mean that no interest would be paid on the
W abash denature B bonds, answered:
No. it doesn't moan that. Wlmt it does mean
is that the security holders of the Wabash have
Hpparently decided that the interest which Ims
several times stood between the Wabash and bank
ruptcy and whir-h has many millions invested in the
pmperty is Letter able to look after the welfare
of the security holders than one about whom they
know nothing and who is untried.
"What about the reports of Mr. Keene being back
of Mr. Ramsey?" was asked.
"I don't care to nay anything for publication on
that Bubject," Mr. Gould replied
In answer to other questions, Mr. Gould said that
he and Russell Sage, who are directors of the Wa
bash as well as of the. Missouri Pacific— the two
roads alleged by Mr. Ramsey to be parallel HJid
competing lines— held membership in the Wabash
board as large holders of the roads securities, and
not as representatives of the Missouri Pacific, add
ing that he did not think the law intended, under
Buch circumstances, to prohibit men from being on
the boards of two companies.
"Is there any contest for Ihe control of the Colo
rado Fuel and Iron Company?" was asked.
"I know of none," he answered.
"What about the two sets of proxies -which have
recently been sent out?"
"I know nothing about that."
Mr. Gould added that Mr. Jeffery had been elected
a director of the company, thus confirming a re
port published In The Tribune on good authority
several days ago.
The annual meeting of the Colorado Fuel and
Iron Company will be held on Monday.
The new board of directors of the YV abash will
organize a -week or so hence by \i\e election of offi
cers other than President. At the annual meeting
the stockholders elected six directors and the bond
holders six. these two groups of directors then
Jointly electing tho thirteenth director, who. under
the company's bylaws, becomes also the president.
The thirteenth director elected whs Mr. Delano,
who therefore is now president for the coming
year. Kx-President Ramsey and Colonel Appleton
D. Palmer, his counsel and brother-in-law, went
from Toledo after the meeting to St. Louis.

The Rev. R. M. Sherman, rector of the church,

Mathews was president for pome years, held a me

Engineer Estimates on Franchise to
Independent Company.
Inn special rpport to Controller Grout, presented
to the Hoard of Estimate yesterday, Engineer
Harry P. Nlctaol, of the Flnanre Department, esti
mat' s the value of a telephone franchise at $7,750,
000 for twenty-five years of operation.
As soon as the legislature took from the Board
of Aldermen its powers in franchise granting mat
ters, the Atlantic Telephone Company applied for
a franchise to operate an independent telerrhono
system \n the five boroughs, promising connection
with Hit- outside cities of the United States. When
the application was made to the Board of Estimate
it was referred to the Controller, ar- the law di
rects, that a price might be fixed. Mr. Nichols is
in charge or the franchise bureau of Mr. Grout's
department, and the papers were sent to him.
The company made this offer:
The charges never to be in excess of five centp a
call where there is no guarantee by a subscriber
to pay a fixed sum p«t annum.
Sixty-six dollars a year for unlimited service
where t< lephone is in private house.
One hundred and eight dollars a year for unlira
lted service where telephone is in place of business.
Us a return to the city for the privilege of operat
ing for twenty-five years:
First to pay the city of New-} ork for the tlrst
two years a sum equal to 1 per cent; for the next
three years a sum equal to 2 per cent, and for the
remaining: twenty years a sum equu.l to -4 per cent
of the gross receipts from service rendered in the
Second, to furnish and install in vnriouH municipal
telephones to b number not in excess of five
hundred and to provide service in conneetionahere
with, all '<( winch shall be entirely without charge.
Tn his report, which takes up thirty printed pages,
Mr Nichols roaches these reasons as to the value
of the privileges asked:
First— A cash payment of $250,000 on the accept
ance or" grant or the signing of a contract.
Second— Annually during the first live yeaxs a
Bum which shall be equal to 5 per cent of the gross
receipts Of t lie grantee from all sources within the
limits of the city of New-York, and which sum
not lens thai! $200, 000.
Third -Annually during the second five years 6
per cent of such gross receipts, which .shall he not
less than $300,000.
Fourth— Annually during the third five years 7
per < • nt of such gross receipts, to be not less
than $800,000.
Fifth- Annually during the fourth five years 9
per cent <if such gross receipts, to be not less
than WJO.OOO.
Sixth— Annually during the fifth five years 10
per cent of such gross receipts, to be not less
$400,000.
For the full term of twenty-five years, such pay
ments would amount in the aggregate to 57.760,000.
