Mr. Kinsley returned, That th judgment of thi company'! officers who paid this campaign con tribution thinking It was neenssarv to protect the assets of tlio compun. was bad." It proved more than that," assert ed Senator Williams "It was abso lute dishonesty I was a policyholder and a Democrat and you took part of my money and gave It away to pro tect me against my own party But has all that 6ort of thing been done away with in the Insurance busi ness" " "Absolutely." replied President Kingsley He explained laws which prohibit it President Kingsley submitted a de tailed statement of his company's bu6' Iness and resources to show that it conducted business actually on a mu tual basis The total assets of the company last ear were $196,000000 and he declared that not a dollar was kept back from the fund in which policyholders participated. 00 VALUATION OF THE ECCLES ESTATE The official appraisers of the estate of the late David Eccles have gone to Salt Lake to make appraisements of property ihere.

Ino. rfegi, Imagine if you can a great tub. one thousand feet long, more than one hundred feet broad, and eighty-five feet deep Imagine that this huge tub has in its side immense gates as high as a seven-story building and half a city block wide Then you can form Borne idea of one of the most impressive features of the Panama canal the Gatun lockB And the parts of the Gatun locks that most strongiv kindle the imagina tion are tho great steel gates These gates have had to be so stronsly con structed that they will be able safely to withstand the terrific pressure of the water in tho lock. Yot these gates, huge as they are. swing open as smoothly as a parlor door. Each gate Is in fact a pair of gates; for thoy open in the center and swing back against tho sides of the lock And they are operated by only one man, who sits iu a tower located on the center wall of the locks. To move thse mighty masses of steel he has but to touch a single lever. It is in conceivable, upon seeing the size of these great barriers, to imagine that Buch a mass of steel can possibly bo swung upon hinges Vet ihey nre, and seemingly with no effort at all! opening wide or closing tight in two minutes' time. When these gates are finished and ready for use only a small portion or their wonderful construction is visible. Appearing as a solid steel wall, thoy are in reality a honeycomb of steel squares bolted and riveted together, upon which the steel sheets :ire fastened. To erect this framewkork of steel and then cover it with the plates, re quired many months. All day long hundreds of men were busily engaged t(tait(j driving the millions of rivets required to hold the plates securely to tho i',' framework. Holes had to be drilled W through two thicknesses of steel pj' plates as they overlapped each other ol before the bolts, heated to whiteness, Wb,'' s were driven homo and headed by pi Jin jj pneumatic riveting machines. Diri Although the gates weigh hundreds jqq. of tons, they are so perfectly swung jjj ' and operated that when closed they are watertight. To make sure that the Lf5kli gates will be perfectly watertight, the probl( edges have been ground by hand so i 1ittrch that they fit along the entire edge. There are nlnelv-two of thos- pates. ; v or forty six pairs half of them at , 3 (iafun, the other half at Pedro Miguel L 81 r and Miraflores. The construction cilla and operation of them all are identic- ( ?Ty ally the same. These gates were fcj 0f ,, made in the United States, and were 'iHTe shlpped to the canal in sections and parts of sections. The greater task " 1 of erection was left to nn army of Htn canal workers, whoso ability has been oteQn proved by their achlov eiiienf s on the T"1 ai?h isthmus since their arrival In 1905. -Ppira Se Every day a different human Inter' in th est story will appear In the Standard. . trnn- You cau net a beautiful intaglio re- loj, production of the above picture, with i j' five othcra. eoually attractive, 7x9 1-2 inc hes In size. slth thi3 week's "Mu- & i "IH tor " In "The .Mentor" a well known ' authority covers i he subject of the Hth D pictures and stories of the week.
