Van Tuyl of Minneapolis Advo
cates Arraignment of Fren

Hartford, Conn., Sept. 21.Harmony
prevailed at today's session of the
National Association of Life Under
writers and the threatened split oyer
the adoption of the resolution pre
sented Tuesday by Delegate J. J.
Baleigh of St. Louis, denouncing mis
conduct in insurance circles, was
verted. A compromise resolution was
The contest was started "by a resolu
tion introduced by J. J. Baleigh of St.
Louis aimed at alleged irregularities
in certain insurance circles. The issue
was raised when the executive commit
tee submitted a report to the convention
declaring that the resolution should not
be considered bv the convention, and
that that or any similar resolution is
unwarranted and outside the proper
rovince of the National Association of
Underwriters. The committee re
port was received with cheers.
Mill City Man Speaks.
When the noise had subsided C. W.
Van Tuyl*of Minneapolis was invited
by the president to the platform.
Mr. Van Tuyl said he represented a
number of those whose views differed
from the report of the executive com
mittee. Three questions, he thought,
were to be determined:
"First, whether we are to make any
public declaration on the matter in view
of the discussion now going on in the
press? Secondj would it be profitable
to do so? Third, what is the politic
He asked if it was the time for such
a body to maintain silence, and, an
swering himself, said that he thought
not. 4
"This association," he said, "has
nothing to cover up and conceal from
the community. If the impression be
comes general that we assume an apol
ogetic couise, the result will be a
heavy loss to us as insurance men. We
depend for all we get upon the public
confidence, and if we fail now it will
take years to redeem ourselves.
Agents Should Take Stand.
"Unless some reasonable resolution
is passed by this association, along the
lines of that suggested by the dele
gates from St. Louis, a resolution will
be sent out to the press of the coun
try signed with the names of men who
are in favor of the principle embodied
in the original resolution. We will not
stand for blind loans, Cambon dinners
or midnight transfers of securities. The
wise, brave and politic thing to do is
to pass the original resolution."
Applause followed the remarks of
Mr. Van Tuyl.
F. A. Kendall of Cleveland said he
was in favor of the report of the ex
ecutive committee, and added:
"Thank God, I am not obliged to
sign anything that will show I do not
stand for graft."
The Raleigh resolution, which pre
cipitated the debate, recites that the
disclosures in the methods and prac
tices in the management of some life
insurance companies, which, if not crim
inal in their nature, appear to be gross
ly irregular and violation of the
principles of the trust involved. It de
mands that, if crimes have been com
mitted, tfhe criminals shall be puniehfed,
and those who have violated their trus
shall be deprived of their trusteeship.
The first intimation that the crisis
was averted came when C. W. Van,
Tuyl of Minneapolis, who led the op
position to the committee's report yes
terday, moved the adoption of the re
port, adding that another resolution
would be presented also. The resolu
tion referred to was then offered and
adopted unanimously. It was as fol
The Resolution Adopted.
"Whereas, at the present time the
attention of the public is directed to
evils recently discovered in the busi
ness of life insurance to the extent
that the long record of faithful hand
ling of the funds of policyholders in
the Amencan life insurance companies
is in danger of being overlooked, now,
therefore, be it
"Resolved, That the National Asso
ciation of Life Underwriters recard the
fact that the funds of the policy-holders
in life insurance companies of America
during the past half century have been

but served to emphasize, and be it
"Resolved, That for thes best in
terests of the policv holders and the
companies, both of which,m a special
sense, are committed to us, the asso

ganized beneficence in the worldthe
business of life insmance."
A rich man died the other day. He died
in the very midsummer of life, and he left
his family $1,000,000. The doctor's certifi-
cate showed that
death resulted
from typhoid
fever. The doctor
himself said to a
friend: "That
man was a suicide.
He had a splendid
constitution. I
could have pulled
him through if his
stomach had been
sound. But he
ruined his stomach
by hasty meals,
snatched in inter
vals of business and by neglect of symp
toms which have been warning him a
rear past, that his stomach was failing
its duties."
The symptoms of a disordered stomach
are, among others, variable appetite, sour
risings, heartburn, undue fullness after
eating, dull headache, dingy complexion,
discolored eye, fluctuations in physical
strength, nervousness, sleeplessness de
pendency. No person will have all these
symptoms at once.
The restoration of the stomach to sound
health, begins with the first dose of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The
cure progresses until the functions of th*
stomach are in healthy operation. Then
the nerves are quiet and strong, the ap-
t% petite healthful, the sleep restful, the eye
%i\ bright, the complexion clear.
Please accept my thanks for the benefit
which my child received from your medi-
cine," writes Mrs "W. A. Morgan, of Silica.
Mo. "He had been troubled for nearly a
year with liver complaint, indigestion and
constipation. I gave him your "Golden
Medical Discovery' and 'Pleasant Pellets,"
and they did him great good. I gave him
the 'Discovery' about eight months, and
several vials of the'Pellets.' He seems to
be perfectly well now."
If you want a cure accept no substitute
for "Golden Medical Discovery."

5.Ever since we arrived in this be
n'ighted village we have been dreaming
of the rainy season. When would it
come? How long would it last and
wasn't it more or less of a bluff any
way? They say* that seeing is believ
ing. We are very peniten't now and
we believe.
About the end of June it began to
leak a little now and then. By the
middle of July we distinctly recognized
that it was 'raining and by the last of
July we began to wonder if we were in
for a seco'ii'd event like the one in
which Noah figured so successfully.
For ten days the rain has been coming
down almost steadily with almost the
strength of a cloudburst. The natives
hero say that not for twenty years has
there been such a heavy and" almost un
interrupted fall of water. One time,
a score-of summeis ago, it rained stead
ily without stopping to take breath for
sevet' days and nights, at the end of
which time the mud town was pretty
well dissolved and washed away. But
these houses are only stuck together
with mud anyway, and the roofs are
simply matting covered over with dirt.
All that is necessary for a complete
demoralization, then, is an uninter
rupted downpour. If the rain only
stopped for a few hours at a time, the
Chinese hustle out an repair the
cracks put a fresh covering of earth
on their roofs and then retire before
the next burst, to laugh at the elements.
But this steady ram undid them, and
when the historic seven days came to
an end the town looked something like
a village of snowhouses after a Chi
nook thaw.
Mud Eoofs Washed Down.
It hasn/t been quite so severe this
year, but it has surely been bad enough.
Many of the roofs have been washed
down the side of the houses, which now
look as tho they had been shedding co
pious mud tears all over their shirt
fronts. In the town, however, we have
not suffered so keenly, thanks to the
prepaiations of the Japanese. The new
drainage ditches worked to a charm
and when the rain came the streets
were left almost as good as new, while
two torrents raced along in the ditches
at the sides, cutting channels ever
deeper and deeper until now there are
miniature canyons on both sides of the
Where the rains have played the mis
chief is out in the country. Around this
town are many hills and ravines, the
whole being very similar to the bad
lands of North Dakota. The roads to
Tielmg and Mukden lead up thru ra
vines, over the top of a ridge of hills
and then down into a valley beyond
and finally out onto the great Mukden
plain. It may be possible for one to
conceive of the heaviness of the down
pour from the following incident:
It happened within five miles, of here
last week. Two Chinese carts, each
with four horses and a combined crew
of four men, left here for Tiding. All
went well until they crossed over the
divide and had wended their way down
into the little valley mentioned. Then
it began to rain and the road soon be
came the bed of a miniature rjver. I
fifteen minutes the river wasx
a torrent and the great cumbersome
*ar ts stuck in the mud and the/ Chinese
stopped their engines and anchored for
the storm to pass over huddling to
gether on the top of their loads, never
dreaming of the fate that awaited
Torrent Upsets the Wagons.
But to their dismay the rain con
tinued with increasing force, until pres
ently the water was whirling and rush
ing past and under the carts with such
fury that they did not dare leap into
the stream and strike out for the side
where the banks slope up toward the
hills. So they sat tight, in a great
fever of suspense, until the water rose
to the wagon boxes, when the force
of the current at once upset the great
awkward things and sent them tumb
ling end over end down the river bed, a
hopeless tangle of men, horses and
cargo. Men and horses were drowned
and the wagon mashed to pieces on the that such legislation will probably be
bowlders in the stream farther down necessary next winter,
the valley.
All the rivers have overflowed their
banks and most of the roads have be
come seas of mud. After the first day
or two the army transportation carts
were obliged to suspend operations and
finally there was little or no traveling
save for pack horses, skilfully navi
gated and steered clear of the reefs
and rocks along the main roads. I have
heard of many Chinese carts south of
here that have been lost while trying
to ford the rivers and suppose there
have been many aeeidents of which we
know nothing.
Chinese Poor Horsemen.
Here at the army headquarters it has
been merely disagreeable. We have
watched our compound getting mud
dier and muddier from day to day, but
it is still with us. All the animals that
live here are still with us, too, tho
they are a sad-looking lot, owing to
the fact that the roofs of their shel
ters have dissolved and fallen upon
them in the shape of thinly diluted
Within a stone's throw of our resi
dence I saw a Chinese cart get ground
ed in the sand, and altho there were
a dozen soldiers and many Chinamen
on the spot to advise and assist, it
was only by great effort that one of
the horses was not drowned. I am
inclined to think, however, that the
Chinese are extremely efficient these
If a horse falls down they give him
little assistance save advice and well
meant instruction, which seems to be
wholly unavailing. After that they
speak harshly to him and remark dis
paragingly upon his ancestors and in
timate that his previous lineage is of a
most compromising kind. Finally they
club him with long sticks and then the
animal, spurred by the insults and
jibes and enraged'by the kick, some
times gets up. If he doesn't he drowns,
and then the Chinamen weep.
Waiting for News from America.
The foregoing paragraphs give an
idea of what we have been enjoying
during the past two weeks. But now
a change has come upon us. The rain
has stopped and the sun has come
out so blazing hot that the roads are
drying up with almost as much rapidity
as' they became liquid. In another
week, so they tell us, if the fine weath
er lasts, we will be having dust and
a bit of work on the roads leveling off
the ruts will make transportation and
a renewal of operations possible at any
time the Japanese feel disposed to
Usually the rain lasts much longer,
but is more finely spread out. The to
tal fall'this summer, it would appear,
is already above the average.
Now the army is looking forward to
good weather and hoping for news from
America,, which will either send them
back to Japan or into another grand
engagement. Stanley Washburn.

Would Make Patent Medicines
Containing Much Alcohol Help
Dissipate the Deficit.
By W. W. Jermane.
Washington, Sept. 21.Representa-
tive Tawney, the Minnesota member of
the house ways and means committee,
inclines to the opinion that increas
ing treasury receipts will make it un
necessary for congress to undertake ex
tensive revenue legislation at the next
session. He thinks that increased, re
ceipts and a reduction of expenditures
will perhaps keep the deficit from in
creasing, and possibly reduce it materi
In this connection he offers the fol
lowing suggestion regarding a possible
new source of revenue: "There is one
sma.ll source of revenue, which we
have overlooked up to this time, that
may be inquired into at the coming ses
sion. That is the matter of placing a
suitable tax upon patent medicines
containing large percentages of alco
hol. The commissioner of internal
revenue a short time ago rendered a
decision that affects these medicines,
but his decision deals with those med
icines that have comparatively little
medicinal qualities and contain much
alcohol. It seems to me that any pat
ent medicine containing large quanti
ties of alcohol, regardless of its medi
cinal ingredients, ought to pay a tax
in accordance with the proportions of
alcohol contained. I have not gone
into this question fully, but 1 shall
Investigate it with care."
Mr. Tawney is one of several con
gressmen having this same subject in
mind. The patent medicine people see
that a fight is ahead and propose to
meet it. They will resist efforts to im
pose special taxes upon them.
They claim that the alcohol that is
used has already paid taxes. The po
sition of members of congress who ap
parently favor additional taxes is that
these medicines are widely used in
prohibition communities, where even
the mildest of alcoholic drinks are ex
cluded. It is alleged that the effect
is bad on the people, who exceed the
directions and become confirmed in
their use of the alcohol in the medi
The fact that the deficit of the
treasury so far this fiscal year is only
$13,504,088, against $21,638,291 at this
time a year ago, is considered an in
dication that the situation will not be
bad at the close of the year.
Treasury Opinions and Figures.
Many treasury experts think there
may be a run of expenditures in the
next few months that will place the
treasury as far behind as ever. The re
ceipts of Uncle Sam so far this fiscal
year amount to $128,795,201, while the
total to this time a year ago was $121,-
292,427an increase for this year of
about $7,500,000. This increase is
largely customs revenues.
Expenditures in the present year are
not falling behind last year to an ex
tent worth mentioning. The total paid
out to date amounts to $142,299,240, as
against $142,930,779 a year ago. It is
almost the unanimous belief that the
expenditure, of the present fiscal year,
which ends June 30, 1906, will greatlv
exceed those of the year -just ended.
The receipts will have to hold their
present increase to keep the deficit
down below that of the last fiscal .year.
Effect on "Railroad Bate Regulation-"
These treasury figures and opinions
are interesting at this time, when the
public is trying to ascertain the prob
abilities for revenue legislation at the
next session of congress. A treasury
situation demanding revenue legislation
would undoubtedly give aid and coin
fort to those interests which oppose
railroad rate legislation. These m1*r-
ests would endeavor to focus public at
tention on revenue matters, thus hoping
to sidetrack the railroad question. For
this reason the friends of railroad leg
islation should keep a sharp lookout on
the federal treasury for the next few

party in congress, sees the possibilities
of this situation, for in a New York in

stranger who was believed to be a mem
ber of the monument-smashing gang
which has caused damage amounting to
several thousand dollars by wrecking
Catholic cemeteries in this district, was
released last night. In two hours after
he had been released it was discovered
that twenty-five crosses in the Glad

broken or overturned. a
The stranger appeared to be about
60, and was dressed as a peddler and
carried two heavy grips. When re
leased he took a street leading to the
Catholic cemetery on the outskirts of
the city. He was not followed by of
ficers, but when the watchers who were
warned that a raid might be attempted
there, reached the burial ground at 7
o'clock last night they found that much
damage had already been done.
A good description of the stranger
has been obtained, and officers and citi
zens are searching the surrounding coun

Chicago, Sept. 21.The'"hat boy"
at the Great Northern hotel was dis
consolate last night. He had issued
checks for more than 100 hats that
cover the heads of members the Ghi
cago Credit Men's association. After
the manner of his kind, he had placed
a- silver tray upon the counter to re
ceive small contribution. By the time
the banquet was over and the last guest
had filed out not a single Q-oin had found
lodging in the tray.
'*They even took the dime that I put
there as a nest egg," sighed the boy.
Speech Against Tipping.
The members of the Chicago Credit
Men's association had been listening
to an after-dinner speech by Father H.
E. Smyth of St. Mary's church, Evan
ston. The speech was directed against
the abominable practice of tipning. It
left nothing rnspoken, nothing further
to be desired upon the subject. It was
final, convincing, persuasive and made
immediate converts.*
"Sorry, old man," said one of the
members to the hat boy, "but it's de
grading to the recipient to accept unL
earned gratuities."
Father Smyth's subject was "Busi
ness and the Man." The waiters, who
had listened with interest to the pre
liminary remarks, full of noble senti
ments about Roosevelt, the moral of
corporations, and the responsibility of
mobs, turned pale when' the priest be
gan earnest. He said:
What the Waiters Heard.
It is a wonder to me that the world
hasn't abandoned the practice of tipping
long ago. The sense of responsibility is
the greatest steadying influence known to
man. It's like the ballast of a ship. Cor
porations may be heartless, nations with
out sou.l But the responsibility of a
combination depends on that of the indi
vidual. The most degraded idea of man
is that he can be anything but a man.
The practice of tipping degrades those
who receive.
It is significant that a girl working for
$4 a week in a department store declines
to take a domestic situation where the
wages are higher and the treatment bet
ter. It is because of the degradation
that those holding menial positions have
forced upon themsehes. I would teach
people from their infancy to value man
for the humanity that is in him to look
upon man as the highest creature in the
world, tributary to nothing.

The climax was reached when Mr.
McCall declared that the soliciting of
funds for campaign purposes was not
confined to the republican party in the
campaign of 1904 and announced:

My attention has been called to cer
tain testimony said to have been given
today by John A. McCall, while a wit
ness before the insurance investigation
committee in reply to Mr. Hughes' ques
tions whether he thought "that in 1904
the interests of the policyholders were
so seriously endangered that the company
ought to contribute."
It is evident that Mr. McCall was labor
ing under great excitement in making his
reply, for It is very incoherent. But if
his answer is intended to convey the im
pression that in the campaign of 1904, I,
either -directly or indirectly, solicited from
him or his corporation, or any other cor
poration, any money or valuable thing,
his statement is absolutely false.
"Barred All Corporations."
On the contrary, I repeat now that I
said before the election, that I expressly
notified and directed the chairman of the
executive committee of the national com
mittee that no money should be received
from corporations.
William F. Sheehan's attention was
called to the testimony of Mr. McCall,
and he said:
I was chairman of the executive com

connected with tfie democratic national
campaign that solicited a dollar from Mr.
McCall. If any such person made any
such solicitation, Mr. McCall should name
Mr. McCall said late last night:
The meaning I intended to convey when
I mentioned Judge Parker was this:
Judge Parker, when a candidate for the
presidency last year, did not personally
ask me for campaign funds, but friends
of his did so repeatedly.
Judge Parker, as chairman of the state
democratic committee, several years ago,
did, however, accept proffered contribu
tions to the campaign fund.
