HAIR-RAISING AUTO RACING A
Rivalry Grows Between Competing
Chauffeurs at Tomorrow's Meet
Webb of Toledo Has a Strong Op
ponent in Winchester of Syracuse
Local Drivers to Contest.
Only continued rain can prevent the
complete success of the automobile
races at Hamlirie track tomorrow af t
ernoon. The weather man is out with
a prediction of "fair tonight and"
Thursday," and the bubble brigade an
nounce that they will hold him to
his promise. The racing machines al
ready in the city were added to this
morning when W Winchester ar
rived from Syracuse, N Y., with a
speeding? car which promises to give
Webb's machine a stiff fight for hon
ors in the open events. This machine
can show a speed of 1:05 .or better on
a small track, and the rivalry between
these two will be strong.
Winston & Walker have produced
a new racing machine, built in their
own garage, which resembles a de
capitated flatiron on wheels. I goes
like a waterbug away from the hired
girl with a box of borax, and will be a
factor in the races. Phil Brooks will
be out with his big machine and
promises to be better than second to
the bunch in the finals.
The racing will begin at" 2 o'clock
sharp, and eleven events will be given.
I will be the first opportunity of Min
neapolis people to see the big Eastern
cars in competition and a large crowd
will have to be handled by the man
agers. Auto race meet parties are
forming without number.
Yesterday afternoon Webb took his
big sixty-horse power machine out to
Hamline and cut about ten miles, the
slowest of which, was 1:06. The other
machines made correspondingly good
time. Webb drives the big* car in
hair-raising style, dashing at the cor
ners of the none too we ll banked track
at express-train speed. I is freely
predicted today that Webb will send
the motor the mile out in less
than a minute tomorrow. lapse
into the vernacular this is "going
some," when one thinks of circling the
big track at Hamline in one minute.
The rivalry does not exist between
the professional drivers alone. Many
of Minneapolis' drivers have conten
tions to settle and the events will be
well contested. Among the local chuf
fers who will burn gasolene on the
mile track are the followin g, who had
entered up to 1 o'clock this afternoon:
Phil E Brooks, C. E Kellogg, Wil

badly burned by an explosion of calcium
carbide yesterday at Excelsior.
A quantity of the carbide 'had been
thrown into the lake near the dock
front of the Whitehouse and the gas rose
rapidly. The boy's curiosity tempted him
to see if the gas would burn. lighted
a match and dropped it where the water
as bubbling. There as a quick flash

Members of the recent legislatures
have awakened to considerable inter
est in the insurance commissioner's of
fice, since the revelation showing the
large amount of fees collected arid riot
turned into the, state treasury. I is
absolutely certain that this feature
will be stricken out of the insurance
laws next winter, but the question is,
how did it get there in the first place?
The fees in question are collected
from life insurance companies for x
amining their books and valuing their
policies. They have been collected
ever since 1872, but as the law was
first drawn the fee was required to be
paid in to the state treasury. Since
that time the act has been amended
by easy stages, so that now there ap
pears to be no requirement binding
the commissioner to turn the fees over.
The progression as shown by the
statute books is interesting. The
original law was Chapter 1, Tit le 2,
General Laws of 1872, heing Section
3153 of the Revised Statutes of 1894.
This enumerates the fees to be paid
by insurance companies, including the
"For valuing policies of life insur
ance companies, $10 per million of in
surance, or any fraction thereof."
The same act provides that "all fees
or fines received or collect ed by the
commissioner under the provisions of
this act shall be paid over to the state
treasurer, accompanied by a statement
in detail, on the last weekday of
The First Change.
The first change came with the in
surance code of 1895. Section 15
enumerates the fees to be paid into
the state treasury, and this does not
include the fee for valuing policies.
Section 69 reads as follows:
Every life insurance company doing
business in this sta te shall anuually pay
to the actua ry valuing the same, as com
pensation for the valuation of its poli
cies, 1 cent on every thousand dollars in
sured by it on lives.
This does not mention the insurance
commissioner, nor say how the actu
ary is to be selected, but it is under
stood that since the passage of this act
actuaries have been designated by the
insurance commissioner to do the
work, and while the companies have
paid the actuary the amount stipu
lated by the law, he did not put all
of the amount in His own pocket.
Commissioner's Wide Latitude.
I 1901, however, the law was
changed again, Section 10 of Chapter
178 reads in part as follows:
As soon as practicable after the filing of
said annual statement of any company or
ganized and doing business under the pro
visions of this act, in the office of the
insurance commissioner, he shall proceed
to ascertain the net cash value ~of each
policy in force on the^31st day of Decem
ber immediately preceding, upon the basis
of the American experience table of mor
tality and 4 Per cerrt interest, or combined
experience rtable. aridft samei rate.,of in:
terest: For the .purp'ose of ^making such
valuation the' insurance dmmissloner may
employ a competent^ actuary to do the
same, who shall be paid by' the cdmpany
for which the services are rendered .at the
rate of not to exceed! per cent per "'thou-
sand dollars of insurance so valued but
nothing herein shall prevent-any company
from making said valuation herein con
templated, which may be received by the
insurance commissioner upon such proof
as he may determine.
This act puts the entire matter in
the hands of the insurance commis
sioner, who since that time has col
lected $63,000 according to his report
to Governor Van... San t. I is plain
from reading the law that he has am
ple latitude, and that if he does not
choose to make, the examination, he
may accept the company's own state
ment, along/with "such proof as he
may require." is not required to
make any accounting of these fees.
