KELSEY FIGHTS ON.
DEFKSDS HIS ACTION.
A Supplementary Statement — Gov
ernor Expected to Act To-day.
[By Telegraph to Th«» Tribune.!
Albany. Feb. 19.— 1n all probability Governor
Hughes will send to the Senate to-morrow a re
quest for th«s official head of Otto Kelsey. Su
perintendent of Insurance, On the disposition
made- by that body of th* request depends Mr.
Kelsey*« future plans. If he has the oppor
tunity he will present his Hide of the case to
the Senate committee to which the Govprnor'3
request is referred, or to the Senate itself, and
fight for his place on that record. Mr. Kelsey
OTTO KELBET.
Stale E :r*riritena>nt of Inmiranc^, whose removil
*»'ill bo asked by Governor Hughes.
and some feu- Senators seem to be decidedly de
fiant as a result of yesterday's hearing. Among
some of the Superintendent's close friends the
opinion Is expressed that "Otto didn't have a
fair show," and this In great measure appears to
be his own opinion. He emphasizes this idea, in
fact, for he referred to it to-day In a statement
sent to the Governor, and later in an interview
talked along the came line.
He^ still maintains that his administration of
the Insurance Department has been one of much
labor and productive of result?. He does not
realize that this does not meet Governor
Hughes's criticism of his failure to carry out
most important recommendations of th* Arm
strong committee. Yet it is the record of the
routine business transacted by his department
and the details of work made necessary by the
Armstrong committee laws and similar changes
Which Mr. Kelsey hopes to have an opportunity
of presenting to the Senate to Justify his ad
ministration and argue for his being retained.
SCOPE OF STATEMENT.
•Pome of the people seemed to get the idea,
that the Governor did not confine me to the
facts taken up in the examination yesterday as
to the material to be treated in ray supple
mental statement," said Superintendent Kelsey.
"1 understood very clearly when he promised
me a copy of the minutes that he desired only
amplification of the facts testified to or ex
planation of. some which might not be perfectly
clear. There la a far wider scope to this affair
than Hie question of dismissing or not dismiss
ing certain employes of the department, but,
being confined to the range of the examination
yesterday. I have not been able to present my
-Ide of the case. It seems to me that my ad
ministration depends far more for its worth and
effectiveness on the things accomplished in
spite of the terrible pressure of work and
changed conditions in this department because
of the new laws. This the Governor did not go
into at the examination, and I could not in the
memorandum I sent to him to-day. "Why, 1
hadn"t even time to prepare such a statement if
1 might have presented it. Take the count of
votes. That subject received only the briefest
treatment at the hearing, but it has been under
discussion in the department for a long time,
'and we think we did the best we could do.
"I do not care to make any statement at the
present time about my future course. The Ben
ate ■will have to act as its Judgment dictates. If
I am called on for any information 1 .shall be
•Tied to give it, but in the mean time 1 do not
care to rush Into further discussion of my ac
tions."
DRIFT OF SENTIMENT CHANGED.
On most of the people here, the showing made
by Governor Hughes of Mr. Kelsey's failure to
grasp the fundamental points of his depart
ment duty has had a powerful effect. It lias
changed practically the drift of sentiment which
before had been favorable to Mr. Kelsey. Now,
while allowances will be mad- for a few of Mr.'
Jersey* personal friends if they stick to him,
anybody else who votes to keep him in his
present place will bear the brand "anti-Hughes."
The Governor by his clever action In granting
Mr. Kelsey's request for a chance to explain
Mmiteii. permitted the Superintendent to furnish
♦*• reasons for his removal in his own sworn
testimony.
Talk about the likelihood of a strong fight
against the Governor in the Senate is rife; and
ihero are, undoubtedly, a few Senators ' who
•will fight the Governor on this question and
any others which he favors. But the beat opin
ion hero Is that the Kelsey case is a closed
issue, closed by Mr. Kelsey's own showing, and
that In the face of his admissions none of the
men who are not fundamentally anti-Hughes
could justify their support of him.
The request for his removal Is likely to be re
ferred to the Judiciary Committee, but may be
i«ent to the Insurance Committee. On either
committee are men opposed to the Governor on
this Issue, but Senator Page, his standard bear
er, Is a member of each. The talk of smothering
the request In committee has died out. Every
body concedes that no committee, after yester
day's disclosures, would dare hold op the re
quest. Whatever fight there is must be in the
<-pen. All the cominSiee can do for Mr. Kelsey
Is to give him an opportunity to relate the de
tails of his work In the department. After that
the case must go to the Senate, and few have
*ny doubt about the result thore.
MR. KELSEVS MEMORANDUM.
Superintendent K.-ls. y this morning sent a
memorandum to th* Governor amplifying in a
tevr details his tesimony. It was as follows:
I received a ' *-a--y «-f t!:e stenographer's minutes
of to-day's hearing at S:."i <><i... ]; Uils evening,

PREPARED BY
the department generally, that my first duty was
to keep up the business of the department and
work out the mass of detail required und«»r the
new laws so that they might be fully and effectu
ally enforced. , . .
In view of the requirements of the amended m
surance law as to publicity and detailed exhibit*
first appearing in the annual statements for 1906, it
was my Judgment that the policyholders In the life
Insurance companies would be protected ana tho
administration of the department safeguard
It seemed to mo That until the close of the year,
when the new. would be in full force and
effect in every^particular. and until th» enormous
details necessary to gel matters In shape for the
beginning of the year were disposed of, that it
would lead to confusion if changes were made,
and It was always my intention, after these prob
lems of preparation were settled, to reorganize the
examining forces of the department.
Referring to the brief Inquiry at the close of tho
examination as to the elections In domestic mutual
life. Insurance companies, I think that the facts do
not sufficiently appear in the stenographer's min
utes.
SELECTION OF INSPECTORS.
The statute limits th« appointment of inspectors
to duly qualified policyholders. Numerous questions
■were presented in this connection among which
were the personnel, the number and compensation
of inspectors. Conferences were bad with counsel
and representatives of the opposing parties to the
'•lection. Different views were expressed as to the
number of Inspectors and other details. [ finally
determined that It would be impracticable to ap
point a largo number of Inspectors, which course
would have Inevitably led to disputes and delays
and would have Involved the companies in undue
expense.
It v.-as a most difficult task to obtain Inspectors
of appropriate character and qualifications to un
dertake this work at a reasonable compensation,
and I made the most careful Inquiries as to the
record and reputation of the persons whose names
were proposed or considered. The final selection.
therefore, while made.and announced shortly before
December 18, was arrived at only after careful de
liberation. From my study of the statute and the
official advice received In regard thereto, [ con
cluded that I had no authority to direct the In
spectors as to any particular method of canvass,
and that as sworn officers It was their duty to
properly canvass the vote, and also that an appeal
from their decision upon any point would be to the
courts and not to the department.
As 1 understand it. the purpose of tha statute
■was that the superintendent should supervise, but
not control or direct, the result of the election.
PLAN OP CANVASS.
Tim duty of canvassing th<» vote and certifying
the result devolving by law upon the Inspectors, I
deemed it desirable that every facility should be
availed of to effectuate a speedy mid correct can
vass. With the approval of counsel and repre
sentatives Of the contesting parties I authorize!
the employment by the Inspectors of expert ac
countants of the highest repute, namely, Brice
vyaterhouse & Co., for the Mutual Life Insurance
Company, and Touche, Hiven £ Co., for the New
York Life Insurance Company.
A system was devised for each of the companies,
differing In some respects, but adapted In oocli
case, In the Judgment of th« Inspectors, to the
particular features arising from the different meth
ods in these companies of keeping their books,
records of polleyholders. etc. This work has been
progressing steadily and with success. In view of
the magnitude and Importance of tho task and of
the necessity of accuracy and of preserving a
proper record in the event of review by the courts.
All of this would satisfactorily appear by a. per
sonal examination of tiie work In progress.
Desirous of complying with your request as to
a brief statement, T beg to conclude, with the sug
gestion, respectfully made, that a full compre
hension of my administration of the department
can only be obtained by nn examination of the
mass of work done and results accomplished since
my accession to office.
Governor Hughes acknowledged the receipt of
Mr. Kelsey'a letter as follows:
I hay« received th* 1 statement, verified this day,
which you have submitted as a supplement to your
testimony given yesterday.
The Governor declined to make any comment
on the case to-day, Baying that he did not care
to anticipate by announcement any action he
decided to take.

GAS TRUST BLOCKED.
Stale Commission Denies Applica
tions of Two Syracuse Companies.
Albany, Feb. 19. — The State Commission of
Gas and Electricity has denied the application
of the Onondaga Lighting Company for a cer
tificate of authority to transact business and to
Issue $1,000,000 capital stock, and of the Syra
cue« Lighting Company for consent to Increase
Its capital stock from $4,000,000 to $9,000,000,
and to lease Its franchise*, works, system and
property to the Onondaga Lighting Company
for a term of 999 years.
The commission disapproves of the lease gen
erally upon policy, but more particularly ob
jeeilife to a provision permitting semi-annual
Issue of common stock for betterments and for
Increasing the ratio of dividends upon all out
standing stock. The commission believes that
the capitalization is excessive, because for the
last two years the company has paid a dividend
of only - per cent on the common stock and 5
per cent upon the preferred. The commission
says:
To allow the proposed return on the present
stock issues of $4,000,000 and the present bonded
Indebtedness of $5,000,000, as well as the same
return on any future issued stock, would pre
vent any future regulation of the price of ga>;
and electricity sold by the Syracuse Lighting
Company thai did not recognize the outstand
| ing securities as representing the value of the
■ property and the rate of return fixed by the
i lease as a fair return thereon.
I Allowing liberally for an Increase In popula
' ( lion, for a probable decrease In the cost of pro
j duction and distribution, for increased consulnp
| th.ii. .'■: weil as rate of consumption, and for
I other possible favorable factors, tho commis
; slon Is of the opinion that the contemplated re
turns upon these securities would Impose nn i
excessive burden upon the community, a petv
capita burden greater than is deemed reasonable
lor warranted. Not only is the proposed leas*
I rtbjectionable In thes<» respects, but approval of
1 It would in 'ho future foreclose the state in the I
I exercise of certain present and important pow- |
i«rs of sui-£r\ii:on over these Interests, " i

there nor could they be found when a hurried
