Superintendent of Insurance Van Div

President John A. McCall of the New

"To Mr. J. A. MoCpll, President New

"The recent startling disclosures in
regard to the management of the
funds of the New York Ufe Insurance
company and particularly the testi
mony of yourself and other officers of
the company, given before the Inves
tigating committee of the New York
legislature, make it my duty as super
intendent of Insurance for the state of
Missouri to communicate to your com
pany the views and requirements of
this department, to the end that the
policy holders in this state may not be
defrauded of any portion of the divi
dendo or surplus earnings that are
Justly due them on the premiums that
they have paid.
"The public has been very properly
taught by yourself ami other officials
of great Insurance companies that the
funds of a mutual company constitutes
n fiduciary trust, held and administer
ed for the sole use of those named ns
beneficiaries, many ot whom are or
will be widows and orphans; nmt
many thousands of people have tuken
Insurance .in your company because of
this very fact and the assurance that
every dollar of assets belongs to the
policy holders. That any portion of
the policy holders' premiums, or pro
fits on premiums, eould be diverted to
political purpose or other uses not
contemplated when the premiums
were paid in, and not consistent with
the avowed purpose of a life insur
ance organization, must be considered
by all right thinking people as a gross
violation of u sacred .trust. It not em
bezzlement as defined by the statutes.
"This lrurtimnt holds, therefore.
Hint all moneys taken ly your order
from the Ireusury of Hit- New York
Ufe Insurance company nml donated
to any politlón! campaign committee
or to nny legislative agent or lobbyist
for aiding or defeating legislation
whether audited or unaudited on the
hooks of the company, were taken
Ithout wan nut of law or morals and
without proiwr appreciation of your
responsibilities ns trustee of the funds
committed to your keeping;. And
therefore this department must Insist
that all fund so used by you or by
your order, and particularly the sum
or $1 18,702.50, which amount - you
confessed to having contributed out of
the funds of the company to the re
publican national campaign commit
tees for the years 18fl, moo and 1901
must be replaced In the treusury of
said New York Ufe Insurance coin
'puny within the next thirty days.
"Notice Is hereby served on the
New York Ufe Insurance company
that lililíes this requirement Is met or
assurance Is given that It will he met
without unnecessary delay, I. as super
intendent off Insurance for the stnte f
Missouri, will proceed under the pro
vision of section 8, I. 22, revised slut
mi's of .Missouri to cancel or revoke
Hie' license of the company to do bus

"There are( many other transaction?
disclosed by the Investigation now in
progress, particularly the payments ol
large urna of money to one J. (5.
Hamilton without any accounting or

And the occupancy of costly real estate
nf the company by members of your

the facts already disclosed it I evi
dent that the Interests of the policy
