Is charged with making $50,000
by his purchase of a contract as gen
eral manager, and the assets of the
company are set forth as vastly small
er than Its liabilities. The Security
J.lfe and Annuity company with which
It Is proposed to 'merge the Life in
demulty Is declared to be a "smud
concern which has not sufficient
Hlrength and financial ability to per
form the policy contracts of the In
demnity company."
The Intervening petition was drawn
liv liehnlf of Mrs. ldi Strattoii. widow
of James Stratum, of New Oilcan
who, It Is alleged, holds an unpad'
death certificate far J4.000 against the
Indemnity company.
The assets of the company are sel
down on the first of the year as $488.

they are now but $313.000.
The bill asserts that there are thou
sands of outstanding policies amount
ing In the aggregate to $13,000,000. II
submits that the assets of the com
pany are nowhere near sufficient ti
pay the liabilities. It asserts that since
May last, llosenfeld has rel'ralnei.
from sending to policyholders the cus

the condition of the mortuary fund.
"The proposed merger," says th
bill, "would mean the transfer of the

It Is alleged that uti.ler the law the
Security and Annuity company has no
