Legislation 8uggeste and Enactment of Laws Recommended to Control Operation of Companies and Curb Official. New York. The committee ap pointed at the Inst session of the New Tork legislature to Investigate life in surance made its report Thursday. The report Is extremely voluminous. extending to 319 printed pages. It em braces a long review of the testimony taken by the committee, and its rec ommendations and conclusions as to remedial legislation. In addition there is a chapter devoted to the state insurance department, in which the committee declares It would seem the superintendent of the department has had ample power to ascertain the transactions of insurance companies, but the supervision by the department has not proved a sufficient protection against extravagance and maladmin istration. Instances are given of re ports made on the affairs of the Mu tual Life Insurance company, the New Tork Life and the Equitable Life As surance society, In which nothing was brought out to show the conditions de veloped In the testimony given before the committee. No substantial ampli fication of the powers of the depart ment seems necessary, according to the committee, which holds that most of the evils which have been dis closed would have been impossible had there been a vigorous perform ance of the duties already laid upon the Insurance department. The remedial legislation recom mended by the committee provides for the safeguarding of the rights of policy holders in mutual companies in the election of directors; recommends that stock companies be given au thority to retire their stock and be come mutual companies In the election of directors; recommends that stock companies be given authority to re tire their stock and become mutual companies; that such mutuallzatlon shall not be compulsory. A recom mendation is made limiting new busi ness to $150,000,000 a year. Lobbying Is condemned; the committee favors the prohibition of contributions by in surance companies for political pur poses. The wisdom of economical management is urged, but the commit tee does not doom it advisable that the legislature should attempt to pre scribe the expenditures of Insurance companies. Further recommendations are made on the valuation of policies, surren der values, surplus, forms of policies, and publicity of all faVts pertaining to a company's business.. An amend ment to the penal code is recommend ed to provide that the person receiv ing a rebate should be equally guilty with the one who gives It. In Its detailed report of the Investi gation, the committee says the acts of the Mutual Life Insurance company should be thoroughly examined In or der that the extent to which moneys have. been misapplied and the respon sibility for such may bw shown and de termined. Concerning the New Tork Like com pany the committee found that its transactions with Andrew Hamilton showed extraordinary abuses and that lhi statement pent from Parte by Hamilton was without suitable speci fications. In taking up the Equitable Life As surance society the committee tells of the dissensions last February which resulted In the reorganization of that society and in the disclosures which brought about this grave inquiry The syndicate operations of the Equitable and James H. Hyde and the relations between me society and Kuhn, Loeb & Co.. as brought out in testimony before the committee are referred to as is the $50,000,000 Union Pacific pool under the manage ment of E. H. Harrlman, Jacob H. Seh iff and James Stillman. Participa tion In this pool by the Equitable, the committee holds, was clearly an im proper transaction for an insurance company. 8TRANGE MANIA OF WOMAN.

Expedition to Arctic in Scientific Interests Leffingweli and Mikkelsen's expe dition to the arctic seas In search of undiscovered lands and for the pur poses of study of geography, geology and other fields of scientific interest is expected by professors at the Uni versity of Chicago to result in more real benefit to science than a dash in search of the north pole. Both men have figured on trips to find the pole and believe that undertaking is unattainable. Among the various things which Leffingweli and Mikkelsen will at tempt to study are the history of the Eskimos, the geography of the frozen north, the hydrography, meteorology, and the temperature and climatic conditions of the new lands. "Our trip Is in the interests of sci ence first of all, and we do not intend to go north merely for the purpose ot planting the American flag on an unknown land," said Ernest D. Lef fingweli In discussing the contemplat ed Journey. "There is an abundance of land there which any one could have and which to my knowledge is not of much money value.

At the recent meeting ot the Inter national navigation congress at Milan, some interesting data were furnished respecting the Influence which the de struction of forests exerts on the dis cbarge of rivers. A summary of seven important papers read et the congress shows that it was allowed by all the authors ot these papers that the re moval of forests, especially in hilly countries, has a marked effect on the water supply of the neighboring rivers. Where deforestation has taken place brooks have disappeared . and sma! rivers once furnishing power for mills tiave ceased to be sufficient for this purpose. New York Herald. Parliamentary "Poet Laureate." It is pretty well known that Sir Wil frid Lawson is the recognized poet laureate of the British parliament. He Is always on the lookout for "Inci dents." the little episodes that en liven the dull routine ot parliament ary life and that lend themselves to utilization as a couplet or a quatrain His extemporaneous verses make a circuit of the house to an accompani ment of suhdued chuckles. They are sometimes handed by a minister to the speaker, who reads them with a professionally dignified countenance and then pays them the compliment ot a momentary twinkle or his awful eye. Wrinkle Comes From Mental Effort. There is a new wrinkle. It is locat ed at the corners of the eyes and It Is a wrinkle which Indicates deep thought. The wriukle or the group of wrinkles when first seen may seem indicative of old age. But act ually the lines are formed by study by reading, by thought and by con utant and repeated efforts ot mental ity. The age t which you may expect these wrinkles naturally Is 40.

Whalers and Eskimos driven out of their course by storms have reported that a body ot land was there. The character of the land is not like that of Greenland. It is not covered with glaciers. The amount of precipita tion is not sufficient, I believe to cause snow fields. "It must be for the most part a desolate country of wastes of bare rock, with little vegetation growing. Perhaps we may find a little moss. There surely is, however, plenty ot game. Muskoxen and reindeer exist there, I am sure. "Our chances of getting to the coun try are good.

It is my Impression, although I have practically nothing to base my belief on, that there are a number of islands rather than a continent." Suffers for Indiscreet Remark. Gifford Pinchot, chief of the bureau of forestry, not long ago appeared be fore a committee of congress and after expatiating on the necessity of preserving the forests he remarked to some of the clerks in his department that he did not consider the service of any woman worth more than $50 a montn. Mr. Pinchot has heard quite numerously from the fair sex since his observations and among his corre- spondents was the Invincible Hettv Green. Mr. Pinchot has not divulged an sne said, but her letter conveyed the impression that any man who made such a superflcitl statement was not worth fifty cents a year to the government or the nation. He has received numerous scathing epistles from other noted women. Doom of the Luncheon. When you go for a long tramp do not bother to take a lunch with you. Just put half a dozen lumps of sugar In your pocket and eat them when you get. tired and hungry. You will at once find your strength and freshness renewed. This is what Dr. Lee, pro fessor of physiology at Columbia uni versity, and author of several Import ant works on the vital processes of life, firmly asserts. Fatigue, according to Prof. Lee, Is a result of certain chemical changes in the body, due to muscular exertion. Sugar, taken Inter nally, arrests and prevents these changes. The sugar, to be specific, replenishes the carbohydrates that are wasted by exertion and causes the fatigue due to this waste to disappear. New York Mail. Von Moltke's Taciturnity.

At any rate, the match came off and the professional was very careful not to utter a word At last, however, he took the liberty of saying one ominous word.
