BIGGEST LIFE POLICY EVER. ,

I 'Ihe largest life insurance policy ever
written wa issued recently by the INpiit
able Life Asiiiuante Society to the mail
oilier house of Montgomery W'uril .V Co.
of Chicago It wu the restill of a new
system of insurance by which an employer
may insure the live or his employees
under n blanket policy The polluy is
(or one year and each individual Is In
stiled under it for u percentage of the
year's wages,
President William A Day of the F.t)it
uble Life I of the opinion that this will
be but tho Hist of many similar policies
taken out by employers who wish to solve
the pension difficulty and encourage the
loyalty and efficiency of their employees.
He says that the present policy is the
largest ever written from the viewpoint
of the numlier of lives insured and the
amount of insurance involved.
Ordinarily in such cases ull employees
urn accepted on an equablo basis, old or
young, weak or strong, and no discrimi
nation is made, There is not even n
medical oxnmlnation of the individual
except iu State requiring it, but iu the
cus of Montgomery Ward A Co. all em
ployee are examined by their own medi
cal stuff before being employed. The
Kqtiltublo Life is interested in the em
ployees only a a group nnd if the group
come up to the standard set It is ac
cepted a a risk without regard to the
condition of the individual iu it.
Tho employee is supplied with a certi
ficate of insurance by tho employer after
the blanket policy has lieen. issued. In
the event of the employee' wage being
increased the insurance is Increased
automatically, as It also begins and ter
minates automatically when a new em
ployee Is added or one leaves,

SLICE OF PENNSYLVANIA
Taft Likely to Oct Majority of
Delegates, but Nothing Like
a Clean Sweep.
GOV. WILSON IS UNOPPOSED
Both Factions of the Democracy
Have Indorsed His
Candidacy.
Piili.AnKl.riiiA, April 12. On the very
evo of tho primaries which will be held
in Pennsylvania to-morrow to elect dele
gates to tho nntlonal conventions the
Republican organization leaders are un
able to give any valuable estimate of the
makeup of the delegation.
Senator Penrose, who three weeks ago
wa claiming an undivided delegation for
President Tuft. huH changed his estimate
nnd now concedes nt least ten delegate
to Itoosevelt. Even this concession of
Senator Penrose is thought tn bo fnr from
big enough. It 1 known thnt the Senator,
a leader of tho State Republican organi
zation, ha been receiving reports from
certain district to tho effect that theso
district surely would elect Taft delegates,
while prlvato reports, coming from the
Republican committeemen of the dis
tricts, assert iu no many words that
Itoosevelt will capturo the delegates.
It would appear that Senator Penrose
is being fooled by his own men. This W
especially true in the coal regions, where
openly the committeemen nro claiming
tho delegations for Taft and privately
telling their friends that they are unable
to stem the lido of Roosevelt sentiment.
Really conservative estimates give
Roosevelt at. least twenty of the sixty
four district delegates. The twelve dele
gate at largo will be for President Taft,
but whether they will be so instructed by
tho Stato convention is a question still
undecided by the leaders.
The triumphal tour of Roosevelt through
tho Stato this week has been n revelation
to tho Taft loaders.
Three weeks ago Senator Penrose da
clared that tho only place in the Stato
where thero would be n semblanco of a,
contest would bo in Pittsburg, whero
former Senator Flinn is endeavoring to
overthrow United States Senator Oliver.
Now Pittsburg must tako a back ooat in
the light, which bna been transferred tn
tho coal regions.
In W'ilkesbnrre. Sera nt on, Johnstown
and several other cities the Roosovelt
leaders arc going among the men and
informing them that if Roosevelt hid
Ix'cn President thero would have been no
suspension in tho coal mines. Tho diffi
culties would have been settled without
a siiscnsion, theso Roosevelt lenders de
clare. Iu the Democratic camp it appears to
bo almost certain that Gov. Wilson will
control the entire delegation. All the
leader nro for him. Tlioro is only otto
.thing that may ho of assistance to tho
aspirations of Champ Clark. The Demo
crats of tho State are hopelessly split und
if either faction think that it may be to
it ndvnntngo to support Clark that fac
tion will throw It strength to him,
llAitiUKiiur.o, April 12. -Indication uro
that Republican national delegate favor
able to tho i (.-nomination of President
Taft will bo elected In all of tho central
Pennsylvania Congress distticts in th
primaries to-morrow, with tho possible
exception of the Seventeenth, which is re
garded a likely to go for Roosevelt.
Tho enthusiasm aroused by Col. 1 loose -vclt
In hi swIii;; across the Stato on
Wednesday 'the Taft people admit was
gicatcr than they had oxcted, but they
profess to beliovo thnt Roosevelt will
not get more than a dozen or fifteen dele
gates and that these will como mostly
from the hard coal region and somo west
crn districts.
It i regarded ns certain Hint tho regu
lars will elect a majority of tho delegate
to tho State convention, thus Insuring
twelve delegates ut large favorable to.
Taft. A both faction of tho Democratic
party uro publicly committed to Wood
row Wilson it. is expected that few if
any delegates pledged to others will hn
elected. Guffcy regular Democrats will
as a rulu be chosen without instructions,
while I ho candidates of the reorginizu-
tion faction uro pledged to Wilson.
Pirisnt'nii, April 12. The primary
election In Pennsylvania to-morrow may
bo historic in Pennsylvania politics, as
well as a very Important factor In the Re
publican national convention.
If tho Itoosovclt men huve justification
for their claim that they will got n ma
jority of tho sixty-four district cetegftifS
it is plain thnt control of tho Republican
organization in this Stats will lie ono of
tho stakes. It means that Senator I'm
rose must fight to retain his leadership.
Tho visit of itoosovclt this wook has
made tho Toft men nervous, und tho moat
ardent aro hedging on former claims,
though they still maintain that Tuft will
get tho mnjorlty of delegates. If Roose
velt brouks even ho will do well, and tho
chances nro that ho may do it.
Money i being spent moro freely than
in a long time.
Gov. Woodrow Wilson will undoubtedly
l)c favored by a majority of the delegates
to the Democratic convontlon to bo elected
to-morrow. No other candidate has
made a fight for support, and the old, or
regulur organization, whioh Is fighting
I for its life, has not opposed tho Jersey
Governor to the extent of putting un u
candidate against him.
