La Follette's resignation leaves one year of his third term to be filled by Lieutenant Governoi Davidson, Wis consin's first Norwegian governor. The next important event in badger politics will be Davidson's formal an nouncement as a candidate for govern or for the next term. Speaker Lenroot and Senator McGillivray are already ir the field, and Senator Hatton and State Chairman Connor are also ex pected to enter the contest.

New York, Dec. 19.The absolute worthlessness of the state insurance de partment as a check on wrongdoing in the management of life insurance com panies was clearly established at yes terday's session of the Armstrong in vestigating committee when the affairs of three small companies were probed by the inquisitor, Charles E. Hughes. The concerns investigated were the Association of America, the Em pire and the Provident Savings Life. It was shown: That the small real estate holdings of the Provident Savings Life have been "marked up" in value $926,997 on the company's boots since 1897. By such methods as these this company has been enabled to report a surplus to the state insurance department each year, also the possession of the reserve fund required by law. That the only assets of the Empire Life are $5,000 in New York city water bonds and $3,000 in cash. AH but $700 or $800 of the $3,000 is kept in the far off island of Trinidad. The company has $4,000,000 of outstanding insurance and 2,200 policyholders The state in surance department in 1903 made a fee ble effort to compel the company to carry a proper reserve fund. The Em pire' Life retained ex-Senator Charles P.

Townsley, president of the Life Association of America, and Eugene Van Sehaiek, its counsel, pur chased 3,960 shares of the company's stock and paid for their subscription by borrowing $66,000 from the Ganze voort bank. Before they could get this loan they had to deposit the company's funds with the bank, and give the lat ter the company's check for the amount of the loan. The bank liquidated the loan by using the company's check. That Townsley and Von Schaick voted themselves a gift of $50,000 out of the funds of the company and used this $50,000 as part payment for the money taken by the Ganzevoort bank to cancel their loan. Henry P. Townsley resumed his tes timony before the committee today. He _fioj, s-aid that when his company started SW ^^i'^ business as a sto6k company, it had $268,000 in its treasury, which was all obtained from the sale of stock All in the Family. President Townsley receives a salary of $12,000, the treasurer $3,000, the medical director $3,000 and the general counsel $6,000. C. W. Townsley, son of the president, is the secretary 'and acts general agent. He receives no salarv, but receives commissions, which amounted last year to $-1,400. The medical director is George G. Van Schaick, a brother of the general counsel, who, with the wit ness, organized the company. Mr. Townsley said his company had about 150 annual-dividend policies, of which about half a dozen had drawn dividends of 15 per cent. The aveiage premiums collected on a $1,000 policy is about $40. The average reserve is 60 per cent of the premium after the first year. The first it is $8 pr $9 a written remains on the books. The re mainder lapses.

Washington, Dec. 19.Possibility of a recommendation of the secretary of war for the revocation ot* the license permitting the Twin City Eapid Transit company to occupy land at Fort Snell ing is suggested in a telegram sent to the quartermaster at Fort Snelling late yesterday by Quartermaster General Humphrey. The quartermaster is inWalsh structed to confer with the officials of the Street railway company"* to see if some arrangements cannot lie made for the construction of a waiting room at the end of the trolley line. It no agree ment is reached, the suggestions or the post authorities and of the street rail way people are to be taken up and a recommendation made as to which shall be adopted. In the event the department's action is not agreed to by the company, the questfon of revocation of the license is to be taken up. Quartermaster General Humphrey is influenced in his action by the report of the post surgeon, who says the health of people occupying the buildings near the end of the car line is threatened by the lack of con veniences for passengers. It is said here that General Carr's comments on this report indicate that Colonel Sweet, post commander, would be justified in suspending the license pending action by the department, but there is nothing in the papers to snow that such action has been taken. Officials here hope an agreement will be reached between the street railway people and the post au thorities, as the trolley line is of mucH aid to the officers and their wives and the enlisted men.

Mr. Ames admitted that he had been in trusted with the task of drawing up the administration measure, and said he hoped to have it ready immediately after congress meets, following the holiday recess. Mr."Ames is drawing up a bill which will provide that all insurance com panies doing business in the District of Columbia, the territories and the insular possessions, must first secure a certificate from a superintendent of in surance, who is to be made an Official of the bureau of insurance of the de partment of commerce. The insurance companies, before such a certificate can be issued to them, must comply with all the requirements of the superintend ent as to detailed reports. The super intendent is also to fix upon a scale ot ethics. There is no question of the power of congress to legislate for the District of Columbia, the territories and the in sular possessions.

This crash was brought on by the Talentless policy of Walsh and re sulted eventually in sending Edward S. Drcyer to the Joliet penitentiary. The day that saw the financial undoina of John R. Walsh, Dreyer was liberated from prison and arrived in Chicago last night. They that take the sword shall per ish by the sword.'' Matthew xxvi. 52. The story of Walsh's career is a story of the golden rulewhich was not applied. I is a story of battles and struggles, of desperate conflicts, of fights where quarter was not given or afked. It is the life story of John R. Walsh, and his rise and fall. Eliminated Friendship.

THE GOOD OF THE TROUBLE ffp *i *-1 nied, for the formation of a syndicate of leading bankers to take over the Walsh banks at an appraised value and continue business. It was stated that any amount up to $25,pOQ,000 would be raised for the purpose'. Walsh and Politics. Thruout its many ramifications the Chicago National bank, with John lf. Walsh as its chief manager, has been a factor in the politics of Cook coun ty and, to. a certain extent, in Illinois. This influence of the bank and Mr. radiated thru both the demo cratic and republican parties. Associated with Mr. Walsh in his financial institutions was John M. Smyth,^for years looked on as the nes tor of the republican party in Cook county, for years chairman of the re publican county committee, and always, until recently, potent in the party councils. With Mr. Walsh, also, as vice presi dent of the bank, was Fred M. Blount, one of the most prominent of the repub lican organization leaders. On the other hand, W. J. Onahan, at one time a democratic leader and city controller under Mayor Cregier, was president of the Home Savings bank. Influence in Two Parties. With a bank and a newspaper to aid him, Mr. Walsh found it eoiifparatively easy to exert great influence in poli tics in both parties. One of the results was that nearly all the public funds in Cook County'and most of the funds of the state were deposited in Mr. Walsh's banks. When the democrats were in power the city funds found their wav to the Monroe street institu tion. So did the county funds, the park board funds, several of the court funds and the bulk of the state funds. In the campaign last year Mr. Walsh's newspaper, the Chronicle, bit terly opposed the nomination of Charles S. Deneen for the governorship. In the pending contest for the senatorship, the Chronicle is supporting Senator Shelby M. Cullom, and it is a strange irony of fate that the man who forced the suspension of the Walsh banks should be Controller of the Currency W. B. Eidgley, a son-in-law of Senator Cul lom. Irony of Fata.

New York, Dec. 19.The Times says editorially, under the caption of "Mr. Walsh's Banks": It may seem like a paradox to argue that the embarrassment of three banks in Chicago could strengthen public con fidence 111 the soundness and stability of the city's banking organization as a whole. Yet undeniably the prompt, manly and public-spirited action of the officers of the clearing house banks of Chicago in uniting to guarantee the de positors of Mr. Walsh's banks against careful administration. The other banks will stand behind it they stand to gether, all for each. Such a principle of co-operation and support gives a bank depositor practically the guarantee against loss ef all the banks in the city. "The admirable spirit that has prompted this action on part of the clearing housw banks of Chicago pre as is the city. When a robber was captured banks of New York.

I is a thing worth while to be remem bered byith theloud public when its ear are railing againsts the 'money power' and the 'banking' trust." More Clever than Bigelow. Under the caption of "The Crash in Chicago," the Press says editorially: "Between the bank-wrecking opera tions of John R. Walsh of Chicago and the bank-looting adventures of Frank Bigelow of Milwaukee the difference so far as-it seems nowis that Mr. Walsh will not go to the penitentiary. Mr. Bigelow had adopted the Walsh scheme of loading up nis bank with wildcat stocks and borrowing on worth less securities, instead of falsifying the books, he would have escaped prison. "That the depositors in the Walsh institutions will not lose every dollar is a happy chance, due to his associa tion with men who could not afford, from purely selfish motives, to let the bottom drop out of public confidence in the Chicago banks." NORMAL CONDITIONS AGAIN Troubled Banks Are Paying All De positors in Full. Chicago, Dec. 19.Practically normal conditions were restored in local bank ing circles today and there was not the slightest surface indication of the dis turbance caused yesterday by the sus pension of the Walsh banks. The runs in the Chicago National and Home Savings banks continued, but there was no excitement whatever around the National bank and but very little in the offices of the Home Sav ings bank. A large crowd of depositors gathered before the savings bank about an hour before the time for opening the doors, and all of them apparently desired to be the first to obtain money. There was but one noliceman on duty in front of the building, and he was helplessly overmatched.

State supervision meets all the re quirements of the situation," said Mr. Steenerson, in outlining his views to day. "Allowing insurance companies incorporated in other states to do busi ness in Minnesota is merelv a matter of comity, and state laws can and have been framed to enable state insurance officers' to arrive at the facts as to the condition and stability of these com panies.
