r o mother, (rLs'.'fV" s ( mrfiF f .rr ( ) ... p.ir, (T Laurium LAW OPTIONAL WKIETIES ASHLEY FRATERNAL INSURANCE BILL SO AMENDED AS TO PRACTICALLY NULLIFY IT. Tho Ashley fraternal Insurance bill recently passed in the House at Lan sing was amended bo that no society reed come under provisions of it unless a majority of the membership vote to do so. A referendum to come in or remain out must be taken within six months, after the law goes into effect Hep. Ashley, whose name the bill carries, told the House that the amend ment practically nullifies the bill, lik ing it to a bill that might be passed to regulate railroads, but applying only to the railroads whose olllcers and stock holders voted to permit themselves to be regulated. The sum of the two and n half hours discussion was that the friends of the bill want legislation that will result in fraternal insurance socie ties getting to a basis where their rates will be scientifically fixed so ns to give them stability, which will be a valuable asset. They believe that only through legislation can the existence of a fraternal benefit society be as Hired permanently. Also that Just such legislation Is needed to keep down a class of societies that have a mushroom growth, collect money ty offering rates lower than any rep utable company can afford to offer end then go out of business. The opposition to the bill was based "'" tie allegations that it would lead to a nionoMly by the older and larger societies and that It would open the way for arbitrarily raising rates. This 1'itter allegation tho supporters of the bill strenuously deny. Members had been getting telegrams by the handful hiring the past few days from consti tuents to vote either for or against the ''HI. The impression formed from the b'legrams in opposition was that many "f the older members of the big so cieties seem to bo apprehensive that "niehow tho bill would hit them harder than younger members in the 'natter of rates.

The substitute is ra'th er more stringent than the original bill, and there was some question as to whether it la necessary, ibut the sentiment was general that ' there should bo a weeding out of the i;n- j desirables somewhere, nni that this j was a good place to begin.

Rainy weather and wet grounds have made it Impos sible to play outdoors and more than 40 ball tossers are running up an enor mous bill of hotel and railroad expens es with nothing coming in. The Red Sox have been severely handicapped by these conditions and the Roston critics say that the team cannot get Into proper condition to play chnm plonshlp ball from the start.

Ruffalo emerged the vic tor in this International pennant race, with but litfle to spare and the Uticas were close behind the Risons. The season narrowed down to the crucial game for the banner between Uuffalo and Utica. The contest was played on the hitter's home grounds, nd it was only through a freak of fortune though rather unfortunate for the Utlca team that Ruffalo was able to win the game and the gon falon. Utlca had been leading their rivals by a two-run margin when the eighth Inning opened, and the staunch Ruffalo adherents were ready to acknowledge defeat. The Risons managed to get two men on bases, with one out. Now here Is where Dame Fortune fig ured So prominently in deciding a championship race. One of the Ruffa lo batters slashed a grass-cutter in the direction of third base. Smith, who PACE SEVEN was playing that position for the home team, made a pretty pick-up, but in his haste threw wild past McGuin ness, on first. The ball went into tho crowd and lodged In the framework of u wagon, permitting all of the runners to score and giving Ruffalo a lead of one score. DATE STILL UNSETTLED. Yale and Harvard At Odds Over Date For Reratta. New York, March 24. The Thames regatta la causing great worry at Yale and Harvard. The date of the annual crew races is still unsettled. The question la absolutely deadlocked. Yale Is holding out for one date and Har vard for another. A few Impetuous announcements from both sides say that there may be no regatta this year' Such a possibility is laughed at by cooler heads, however. This year Yale wants the race earlier than last year. On the other hand. Harvard cannot sec why the date should be changed.
