Examination of President Hegeman
Brings Out Interesting Matter.
Investigating Committee Has
Had a Good Week
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Nov. 10.— Closing the
sessions of the week today the Arm
strong committee of insurance investi
gation ha« behind It a mass of details
and figures which, while of apparently
little Interest to the laity, Is of Inesti
mable value to the committee. The
greater part of the week has been de
voted to the Metropolitan Life Insur
ance company, the examinations of
President Hegeman and James M.
Craig, the actuary of the company,
being of a most technical nature. When
adjournment was taken today the com
mittee had not finished the examina
tion of President liegeman and he will
be called again next week.
Just before the hour of adjournment
today Mr. Hegeman Was excused and
Joseph Howard. Jr., a writer who had
been employed by the Mutual Life,
was called to the stand. He Identified
vouchers that he had signed for money
received by writing advertisements
and reading notices for the Mutual
President John R. Hegeman of the
Metropolitan company was recalled.
Letters of complaint that policies were
paid to undertakers by industrial com
panies were read to Mr. Hegeman, and
he said that he could not say that his
company had ever made such a pay
Mr. Hegeman said his company had
made but two campaign contributions
and they, were both in 1896. One thou
sand dollars was given to the Palmer
and Buckner gold Democratic man
agers and $7500 to the national Repub
lican committee. These contributions.
Mr. Hegeman said, were made with the
approval of the finance board and were
more a moral than a political move to
assist In defeating the "16 to 1 heresy."
A statement was produced showing
that Andrew Hamilton had been un
der an annual retainer of 'slooo from
May 13, 1892, and from that date to
May 5, 1904, had received for special
services and retainers the aggregate
sum of $35,295.
Mr. Hegeman said the Metropolitan
Life Insurance company obtained
bonds for its agents from either the
American Surety company or the Na
tional Surety company. Mr. Hegeman
holds ten shares of the National. The
bond required of agents Is $750 and
the premium is recovered from the
agent by the company.
Loans at Small Rate
It was shown that the Metropolitan
made, loans of $100,000 to $200,000 at
l'/4 per cent interest to William Reade
of the firm of Vermtlye & Co. on vari
ous dates in 1901 to 1903. The market
rate for call loans was at the time
from 4% to 5 per cent. Vermllye &
Co. were the backers of the Metro
politan at that time, and when Mr.
Reade resigned from Vcrmllyo & Co.
and went Into business for himself ho
became the company's bankers. Mr.
Hegeman's explanations for making
these loans below the market rate was
that valuable services had been ren
dered the company and it sought to
repay favors where It could. Mr. Heg-e
man said that through the watchful
ness of Vermilye & Co. tho Metropoli
tan Life Insurance company has now
three or four millions which "could be
burned up without Impairing the sol
vency of the company."
On bonds and stocks the Metropoli
tan has cleared, according to Mr. Hepe
man, about $1,200,000, and on syndi
cates in which Vermilye & Co. invited
the company to participate the com
pany has made about $650,000.
, In describing the investments of the
company Mr. Hegeman said that the
Metropolitan Life Insurance company
owned 6327 out of 10,000 shares of the
National Shoe and Leather bank of this
city. No dividends are paid, as the
bank Is accumulating its surplus.

NEW YORK, Nov. 10,-The appelate
division of the New York state su
preme court today handed down a de
cision dismissing a suit brought by
John R. Platt against Hannah Kliaa
a negress, to recover $685,000, which
Platt asserted he had given to her un

decision that it was not made on the

"There are in the complaint," the de

on the part of Hannah Ellas which

istry met with its first check today
when M. Berteaux, minister of war,
peremptorily withdrew from the minis

thereafter announced his resignation.
For a time the entire cabinet hung In

his colleagues to give up power unless
they were supported by a' substantial
majority. After a debate of excep

the ministry prevailed by a vote of
310 to 147. However, the ministerial
majority Is made up of fractions of di

starvation to many, it will mean misery
to countless others, and it is with

"Ordinarily, in times of crop failure,
the Persians depend upon their next
door neighbor, Russia, for wheat," Gen.
Morteza said, "but Russia's war re
sulted in exportation to Persia being
so greatly diminished that few were
able to profit by it and then only the
better classes, as the Russian war
prices were almost exorbitant. Two
thirds of Persia's commerce is with

hopes that confidence displayed in him

effect upon the emperor of Korea and
induce a graceful submission to the in
evitable loss of Korea's independence.
The plans of Japan will be backed by
army occupation and the presence of
two cruisers at Chemulpo.
The Korean officials and people are
anxiously awaiting the developments
of the past month, Beveral secret agents
having been dispatched to secure Amer
ican and Kuropean Intervention, the
emperor of Korea fearing, so it Is
said, to appeal directly to Marquis Ito.
Upon his arrival here Marquis Ito
was received with Imperial honors. In
the emperor's state coach he was driv

rounded by Japanese and Korean cav
alry Lantern bearers followed with
chairs and rickshaws, carrying his
