Tlic Allegation of Costly fflnimaomoiu
Ably Uuputert by u iVelMSnown
Writer. # ll#
The Hcv. Stephen H.Tyng.Jr., treats of life
insurance hi n thorough and Interesting manner
in the April number of Harper's .l/ayaslac. Ills
bamllmgof the question of Expense of Man
ngemeut'' Is characteristic mid truthful. Ho
The question of cxitotiso Is relative. Uls cm*
phailcaliy to tho policy-holders Interest that
Such vigor ami skill In the management shall bo
employed us to produce a prolUublo result,
yucu a policy is oftentimes expensive at tho out
sol. A reduction nr expenses is trequoutly tho
prcc.ursur of depletion. Tho vital question Is
what the policy-holder Is to got In strength mid
prullt for his uiouoy. Unless tho percentage ol
cost bo bo grout us to endanger tho company a
nbilltv to meet Its part of tho contract turn Jo
with iilm, bo has naturally no desire to Intrude
cither his curiosity or his counsel, provided ho
Is sntlsffed that the company is skilltmly con
ducted. Details ho Is willing to leave to tho
wisdom of managers, who, by the suffrage* ul
noliev-Uolders.have assumed full responsibility.
Should be sometimes think that certain salar.es
tire ua> high, he recalls tho fact that in many
other cases small salaries have not saved a com
pany from insolvency. Tho skill mid earn ro
oulred for tho nmiuigoment of life-insurance
companies, the Judicious Investment of their
accumulating funds, the watchful oversight
over contractu covering protracted periods of
time.—nil these, and a multitude of minor mat
ters, call for talent of tho very highest order. A
man’s labor Is worth all Unit lie cun get forll.
Large responsibilities imply largo compensa
tions.‘The men are few hi any community who
can ‘Judiciously manage millions. \> hetlior
the fi/rtuue bo public or private, they
are entitled to n fair Income
for personal needs. In managing bis
own, a man has more license for expenditure
than in a trusteeship. Hut tho doctrine ol pro
portion holds gnou, after all. asninw. A man
who Is a fair seaman or a superior skipper may
eufcly ball hh snip over the Atlantic while sum
mer seas aud skies outline hit. course. But the
miles and hurricanes of winter fan only bo out
ridden by u stiuieh vessel, the skill uml courage
of whose commander tire commensurate.
Periods of peace In life-insurance may be and
have been followed by crises most momentous.
It Is the reserve force of tho man at tho bend of
11“ affairs which alone can- control the elements
In such an emergency. Ills services for one
such vuar of tlmmelal stress may be worth to
the assured tho grow amount of bis salary clur
lug bis entire connection with the company.
A llfo-luaunuico company Is an organization
which. In Its subdivision of responsibility mid
olllce, bus no parallel but Hint of the goveru
nientof a State. U employs a largo corps of
agents, scattered over n widely-extended tern
' torv; skillful medical examiners todlserimlnate
between good and bud r.sks, lest tho mortality
rote bo ruinously Increased; cashiers, book
keepers. and clerks to receive umi to account'
tor tbo premiums paid; aeientllle actuaries to
guard against insufficiency of reserve, umi to
determine the proportion of surplus that may
safely be returned; real-estate exports to
watch over Its loans; a claim bureau to udjust
without litigation tbo rightful demands made
upon It: luwvers of wise counsel to examine tho
titles of property on which loans are made, and
otherwise to represent the Interests ot us
poUoy-holderss and men of executive ability
in its chief olllees, capable of guiding
and conserving these manifold departments.
The total amount paid by all tho thirty-one com
panies reporting to Now York In Itf'.ti. for tho
salaries, cumuitssUms, advertising, ami all other
expenditures of the business, including divi
dends to stockholders, was SIO.SW.In", while tho
total ifmount of money managed was ovor four
hundred Milium* of dollar*. NVlmt n difference to
tbo policy-holders whether this vast sum was
skillfully or Juusklllfuny guarded! Thom in
sUtuUmtfteempwro more favorably, ns to econ
omy, with any other organlzathmsaetivrly wok
lug outside patronage. U Is almost impossible
to collate the reports of tbo banks to tbo Con
troller of the Currency so ns to discover thalr
ratio of expenses to income. A prominent offi
cer in nno of our largest corporations gives me
ns u guess 4U per cent. Hut tho lusurnneu lie
port. lor |H«i) gives us the statistics ot companies
dealing in other than life-lusunuiee. The com
parison In tho following table Is between lire
and murine on tbo one mind and life-insurance
companies on the other, as to assets and expend
itures, and tho percentage of the latter to tho

In both cases tho expenses Include commis

insurance companies bore thu sumo ratio to
assets us those of lire, etc., companies, tho fV
761,1‘Jdeestof ndnilnlstniiion would be raised to

Tho percentage of expense In relation to In
come In (Ire and murine inauranco Is nearly
Vuee flm« that of the life companies of this
Btute. included In these amounts art) thu taxes
throughout all the various State*.
To thu above statement 1 ndd that IRS Insur
ance companies (othnr than life) In lhaHtnto of
New York received, during IHTU, lor premiums.
5UJ.U70.7Ut1; for Interest, S7,IMU,IcM; niaklng the
gross Ineorno tjUH.'jiM.iwCl. Their expenses of
mumißument lit tho suurn year were tf-M.PCi.iTJt.
The ratio of expense to cross Income was there
fore-UKI per cent. Whilst this Is thu avoravo
presented, it is true that In many eases tho ex
penses of lire companies range between 60 and
and 00 per cent. Lot tho critics contrast these
numerals with 11.0 per cent, bclmr tho uvernco
pur cent of expenses to Income of all llfe-lnsur
ancu companies.
Hut tho answer inndo to all this Is that llfo-ln*
Burance agents me overpaid. Theynru made
tho scapegoats. What are the facts? Tho com
missions of life-insurance agents In all compa
nies were. In IbTU, fil,iwi,twi. Tint whole nimunit
of cash premium receipts was fcVJ.Wu'.tHl.bi.
This is collected iu average smsll amounts by
uguntsfroin tholr patrons all over tho United
Btutes. Tho average commission was, therefore,
U!j percent. Is this an outrageous charge for
tho business of persuading men to provide for
thomsolvesand those dependent upon them, and
the other duties that pertain to tins ollleeV Thu
agent who olieets Insurance on your clothes re
ceives 15 per cent year niter year, and the aver
age commission upon thu assurance of your life
is «Vi per cent. The wonder Is that tho payment
of commissions can. by life companies, be so
graded as to retain in tbeir employ men of high
capacity and character, and ut the same time
hold the average ratio sn low.
Uut thu llnul fact to be recognized In this con
nection Is that tho administration of existing
life companies has nut cost their policy-holders
n single dollar. Not only have the thlny-slx
companies whose aggregate premiums and pay
ments have heen tabulated met all maturing
claims, accumulated an adequate reserve, re
turned us dividends tho excess of premiums
paid, purchased many enncelied policies, and
paid all expenses, but they haw. over and nlmvo
all (bis, saved us surplus mom than sV»,uuu.uU,
which they held ou Jam I.lßsu, lit I rust for pot
ley-holders. Their Imeicst account shows this
net excess after meeting all tho cost of Urn busi
ness. liy tho use of money from which we
might have derived no Income had wo retained
it, theau companies have not only accumulated
a secure reserve for the payment of onr pollutes
when they lull tine, but have covered every con
ceivable item of administrative expenditure.

—A Higher llnugt Fanrly In

Clearings showed n very slight increase over
those of tho comjsiKJiiUlnir weeks of lint year,

demand for loans was urgent in some quarters
on account of tho snow-blockades. which cut
olf now business ami remittances. Halos
woro Dor cent. Country orders for
currency Increased. Now York exchange
closed nt 2y?.30c per SI,OOO dis

road bonds was small, mid prices showed a
weakenlmr tendency. Dealings in New York
Slock Kxclmn#osecurities woro loss active. Tho

western roads by tho Into storms is bolter un
derstood hero than In tho Hast, and operators
are not buying. Hut It is not believed that thoso
losses will Impair mo dividend-paying capacity
oftho Grander road* unless followed by still
worse storms, or by Hoods, or by short crops:
Tho/’iibllßsava: While thoro Is every reason
to suppose that the money market will work
closely durbur the rest of tlio month, thurc docs
not seem to bo any cause for apprehension of
serious disturbance. In fact, there was nothing
else tn cause trouble when Congress wantonly
Interfered to make mischief. Tho ulfect of Its
war upon the banks has been to force tho mar
ket to cast olf purl of Its load of murolmndlsu
and stocks, which has been quickly nml eagerly
taken bv consumers, exporters, and Investors.

do nut appear to foreshadow a ilnanclul col
it Is true that tbo stock market was frandu
„„y or blunderingly pushed upwnnJ by false
...itlclpailons of the results of u a per ct'irt bill.
As wo repeatedly showed, such a bill whs not
calculated to succeed or to call our from Us bid
lug-places tin* vast sum now held by tho work
ing people. Thu r«al reason for an advance In
prices was the fact that tho savings of tho peo
ple ate gradually getting invested In other se
curities, while (ho great prosperity of tho coun
try invites continued purchases from abroad.
As long as tills statu of fuels remains, specu
lators for a decline have the chances against
them, and It makes no dilferenee whether the
reasons given io>tlmulato nn advance arc sound
or nut. On the other hand, when orders to sell
from tho interior or froiuabroad begin to ex-
cowl orders to buy, tboro will come u real change
In tho ourrout. and whether reasons then Riven
for it decline are false and fraudulent or not, tho
Rpeculaturs for a decline will huvo tho chances
In tbolr favor. At present tho disposition to
purchase Is unmistakably in tho ascendancy, and
tho prospect that no cheap United States* bonds

to accelerate Investments In other securities.

The following is from the Wichita (Kaa.) lleacon of
March 2:
Charles Parsons arrived In Wlchlla on Friday from
the Fait Fork eatlli) range. 145 miles southwest, on
wlmt Is known as the Drum cattle range. There nro
ID,(IX) head of cattle owned by Maj. Drum, J. C. Pryor,
htreater. and lien Miller, tho fennar owning between
n.uwimd7.uii head. Out of this large number but Hid
head have been found, after thorough search, that
mol their death by the storm. This Is bull per coni.
Mr. Pryor, with 1.7 U) baud, found but two old cows
dead, which makes his loss about nothing. Tho loss
seems to have liven sustained chiefly In the extrema
we,l. or In that portion of tint Hiute west of i.rrut
Hcml. Information from Mechanlu Lodge and from
tho territory east of Medicine Lodge 10 the Ponca
Agency, It that they weathered through remarkably
well. {.’apt. Walker, who has a large herd southeast
of Arkansas City, reports but a small |>cr coni of loss.
Thu Ftsbor Urothurs. who are holding lliolr herd
southwest of this city Ft) miles, lust none, und they
ssy their cattle are in very tine condition for tho
season of Uiu year, dame are fat enough for beef.
Thu grass ha* been abundant ana nutritious, and
walur plenty.
rATTLK-WUh ft supply nearly twice fts Unto a*
for the previous week und more tlmn XOU la excess
of Uio largest number reported fur tliu corresponding
week In any past year, vuluos. as might be supposed,
wore trunk mid iinauUlod. Muudny'a receipts being
small the advanced prices of tin) week bufuru wore
easily sustained, but Uio succeeding four days saw n
gradual shading off In favor of buyurs, und at Iho end
the week |irlcua shewed an average decline of lAMXV).
'l’hore wore sumo grades in which the shrinkage waa
teas marked. Choice export cattle, fur Instance, wore
scarce if more than 100 nif, na they were la good tie
nmnd ull the week and la light supply. Hlocsers uUo
sold woll up lu the previous week's prices, nut enough
of that ulus* being offered to ctuou nuy Important
shrinkage la values. The poorer class of hatchers'
and miiners' atulf und fair to good shipping trades
•uiterod the must, os of such the mujor part of the
supply consisted. Taking Into consideration the
fact that we ore now In the midst of
the i/onten season, and that the weather
during most ef the week was unfavorable to the dead*
meal trade, ll Is surprising that the heavy receipts
worn disposed of at so comparatively small a decline.
At the reduced rules an outlet was found lor about
all the offerings, and In antlciiuitlon of diminished ar*
rivals for the ensuing week the market closed up
steady. Although there wore low bunches ol cattle
timt would answer to the description of extra, there
were inaiiy that wimlrt da** ns uholuvi. and there »M

MII.WAtfKKR, Wls., March W.—OltAlx—ln tile local
wheattnarkolthe weekends with n showing of de
cided strength und a fooling of Brent cunlidonco
among tlio bulls. Tlioro are Indications that tho
Chamber of Commerce will see greater activity, a
lamer volume ortmnsnctlont lo Brain, und a higher
range of prices. Monday opened with tho depres
sion which chnractorlxed the time of the railway
bluekado, and Nu.il spring seller April was held at
Uncoil that day. This forenoon the same option
came within a single fraction ot ll.Otl. May delivery
has ruled jnsl 6o over all week, but wua shaded a little
to-day. t'ush wheat of all grades I* tinner, and the de
mand Is sharp. Tho upward movement this tuormugu
caused principally by tho prevalence of another
grunt storm throughout tlto Northwest. Il ls logical
lo hold that the bud weather peculiar to tho end of
March will enhance values materially. Innsmuou as
the hoars have been unable during the steady
weather of the pant few days to get quotations down
tu wnal they claim would be a legitimate basis. ‘1 hoy
have pounded the market incessantly since the agi
tation commenced in llnunclul circles, encouraged by
a professed reeling of insecurity among capitalists
und largo available supplies of breadstuff*. At this
juncture the bulls nru nominal by the strength in
other values, the degreased stocks at the seaboard
andln llrltlsn ports, the reduction of’over a million
and a oimrior bushels In tho visible supplr within u
single week, and tho prospector enormous damage to
the winter wneutcrop, all over tho West- [he buy
ing element would certainly seem to have tho bulge
on their opponents Just now. and It Is not surprising
that they look hold with cuntldenco to-day and es
tablished a higher range of prices. Hulunluy Is usu
ally a bud day lor bulling the market, inasmuch as
the scalper* generally lake whatever nruilis they cun
at tho und ora week, and often unload enough wheal
lo keep tho market easy, when all the outaldo condi
tions favor an advance. , ..
