It appears that ex-Sheriff Jones has
paid In all the money he has collected,
and that the difference of ?.">,21S.41 rep?

STATU? OP INSURANCE COM
Tour correspondent specially inter?
viewed the Secretary of State to-day as
to what he proposed in do with the re?
quest of tiie Northwestern Life Insur?
ance Company, that he return Its char?
ter, lib I last week under the Cralg law.
He said he could not return it unless
the courts ordered him to do so, and
high courts at that, not lower than the
United Slates Circuit Court of Appeals
or the Stati." Supreme Court.
He was then asked if companies ecuid
file Charters for limited time, and re?
plied that he kliew of no authority for
their so doing; that there was no au?
thority for latitude ns to time. This
is n question the courts will have to
pass 'in. A ease agreed is made u
betweori John W. Illnsdnle, rcprosen
Ing tin- Mutual Reserve nnd Attorney
General Walser, but the courts will
hardly pass on it before October. The ]
Connecticut Eire notifies the Commis?
sioner of insurance It will withdraw
and asks thnl the unearned part of its
license be refunded. This cannot i> ?
done. There \p no law for it.
The Commissioner says h" believes all
the tire companies save about twelve
will domesticate and expresses tho be
lief that In sixty days three-fourths of
tho life companies will do so.
THE NEXT CAM PA ION.

to that for Governor, Charles n, Ay

A HUSBAND'S COMPLAINT.
Last month in the Superior Court
here Mrs. Pattie Arrlngton sued her
ex-husband for $7.s::s, claimed due its

complaint, pleading the statute of lim?

years ago, being determined to wrerk
his happiness, she left tils home with
her children nnd for years kept their
residence secret, they being in Illinois.
Thnii he Bays: "For wrongs end inju?

imagination, she has relentlessly pur?
