The next meeting will ho held at Gallatin, on Tuesday February 10th, 1874,1.1 111 o'clock, A. M. Insurance Commissioner's Report. The State Insurance Commission** has recently made his annual report. It is dated July 1, 1873, but it contains reports of insurance companies doing' business In this State for the year end ing December 01, 1872. From it we "lean some very interesting items on the subject of life insurance. TWO MILLIONS KENT EAST ANNUALLY, The wport shows that the total amount of premiums paid in this SUte'ln 1872, was $3,731,557 42—ore, air dollar* to every man, woman and ehtld in the State—t\r over thirty DOLLARS FOR THE HEAD OK EVERY FAMILY ! This money does not all go out of the Stale. There Mere during that year two California Life Insur ance Companies (there Isonly one now) which received $345,411 76; leaving $3,339,451 <W to be paid to Eastern companies. Hut that amount did not all go East. The Eastern companies paid on matured policies in this State the sum of $647,021, reducing the above sum still further to $2,739,451 (Hi. This sum was still further reduced, and we desire to give the companies the en tire benefit of the Commissioner's fig* ures. There were so-called dividends allowed policy holders; that is, policy holders had been overpaying the com panies to such an extent that the com panies, after having the use of the money for a few years, Returned a small portion of it to tho policy-hold* era. The report does not show how much has been thus returned as divi dends to California policy-holders, hut one table shows the amount of divi dends allowed to all of the policy holders of the companies doing busi ness on thin coast to be about twenty percent, of their income. Taking this as a basis, we estimate the amount of dividends paid to California lHilicy holders to be 5677,2fH 53. Making this deduction from the above amount and we find tho amount actually sent to the Eastern States by policy-hold ers on this coast, over and above all amounts paid by the Eastern compan ies to parties in this State as dividends and benefits, to be $2,062,117 13, or about three dollars and a half to every man, woman and child in the State, or, say, eighteen dollars to the head of every family. This is a startling fact. Two millions of money thrown away annually! We say thrown away, be cause there is that sum paid annually by the citizens of California to go out Los Angeles Daily Herald. of tlie .State—never to return again more than they ought to pay to .secure the benefits they derive from Life In surance. The twenty-seven compan ies' doing business i n this State in 1872 (ami these companies are the best in the I'nitetl States) show thai they paid during thai year iv losses, etc., 120,733,018 87, .-it an expense to the Companies of $65,067,428 60. In other words it costs over three dollars to pay our doilm- to the family of ii deceased policy-holder. How much longer will the Ameri can people stand this wholesale swin dling ? Thanks to the co-operative sys tem of Life [lwUtunce now being so permanently established in the Wes tern States, and the Mutual Aid Asso ciation on tliis Coast, the lua>ses are teginfttffg to get their eyes opened and the old high-rate companies arc losing their grip* on public attention. Every citizen of California who holds a policy of Life Insurance in tin Kastcrn eoni]>any is a public enemy to the State, because he is helping to drain from circulation here the little surplus we now have on hand at the rote of six thousand four Kitridrcd nnd fonts} dollars- /to' day. Net only is ho helping to drain the surplus funds' from the State, but he Is paying three limes as much as be ought to for the benefits received. The Slate Legislature, in view of this official showing of the Life Insurance companies, would be perfectly justified in prohibiting Eastern companies from doing further business in this State. —[Mutual Aid.
