Street and Sewer Department Re
surfacing Some ol the
Macadam Highways.
With a view to preventing trouble
from dusty streets in the future, the
Street and Sewer Department began
today to resurface Pennsylvania ave
nue, and from which Ore re has been a
great deal of dust, causing much an
noyance and complaint. A composi
tion of tar and other ingredients,
known ns tnrvie, is tiring used, no
pur ntly, with good effect, t It costs
ß l 2 cents u| gallon and a gallon will
cover about two square yards of sur
face. The department has purchased
nearly a car load of the material and
is doing the work with its own men.
At noon today the surface of Pennsyl
vania avenue between Clayton and
Van Buren streets had been treated
with the preparation.
The process is to sweep the dust
from the surface of a macadam street
and then sprinkle the tnrvie, and on
top of this to spread screenings of
stone and roll it. The combination
hardens rapidly and is said to have
produced a good result in other places.
If the experiment proves satisfactory
Pennsylvania avenue, the depart
ment intends to do the same work on
other macadam streets. Street Com
missioner Pierson says the work can be
for a
year and he considers it a good invest
ment.
Last year some of the dusty streets
were treated with oil, but it djd not
give satisfaction.

Which is Said to Have Been Di
verted Freni the Crematory
and Fed to Pigs,
Tb<* Hoard of Health mud* a definite
move this morning in the direction of
correcting some of the alleged abuses
in the system ol collecting garbage.
For some time reports nave been
current to the effect that some of the
garbage, all of which should be taken"
to the crematory, was being taken by
farmers and others and led to rugs,
and today the executive officers of tne
Hoard of Health, were stationed at
Market and Third street bridges, with
instructions to head off ill
laden with garbage crossing the bridges
into South Wilmington, and to send
the wagons to the crematory. - During
the morning several farm wagons laden
with garbage attempted to cross the
bridges, but had to turn hack ami lake
the gar trage to the crematory.
"1 have been watfth I no this matter
for some time, having bad men sta
lioned at the bridges, mid they re
ported to me that, during the past two
weeks 92 cartloads of garbage in
wagons of some of the cjty collectors
have been taken into South Wilming
ton, instead of going to thecrematory.
I am informed that this garbage is
deposited near (inresctie's Lane and
taken from there to other nearby
places and led to pigs. This is in ad
dition to farm wagons which have car
ried garbage out of the city. The low
est number of loads göing over the
waeons
bridges in a day was five and the
highest number 11. I have all of the
executive officers stationed at the
bridges today, with instructions to
compel the drivers to take the garbage
to the crematory. It is the intention
of the Hoard of Health to break this
practice up. "

The Truth -r* Mutual Life
HIS is a matter of great interest to the public, and of still greater
interest to thousands of individuals. People with the fairest
minds—and that means most people—have been disturbed and
unsettled by the developments and denunciations of the past
What these people want is the truth—the plain unvarn
To give them this truth is the object of this announcement.
The Mutual Life Insurance Company was organized in 1843, the first
of its kind in America.
T
lew months,
ished truth.
In 24 years it had become the largest in the
world. For 39 years, in spite ol the Keenest competition, it has held the lead,
passing unharmed through panics, failures, strikes and wars ; meeting with
promptness its every obligation and having 460 millions of assetg to-day.
The recent Insurance agitation was unique. The investigation
certainly was thorough. As every one knows the Mutual Life was on the
tiring line. The smoke has now cleared
away. What do we find?
In the first place wc find that the Mutual Life is still the largest
and staunchest Life Insurance Company in the world. Without defend-,
ing or in the least belittling the abuses and extravagances recently brought,
to light, everybody should keep in mind the fact that the solvency of'
this Company has not for a moment been ailectcd thereby. ■ Concerning'
the work of the finance committee which has been attacked in the press,
this Company's auditing committee consisting of Messrs. Trucsdalc,
Auchindoss, Fish and Dixon stated on February 15th, 1906:
t V "I I- I , . 0*
"The Committee certify that the investments of the Company are 0) )
the highest order and udl selected." and " have found the valuation given <
safe and conservative, in many instances less than the market value and in'
none in excess of such value."
In the next place, extravagance has been stopped, and those res
ponsible for it have gone; a new management has been installed, and
retrenchments have been effected that have already saved vast sums ol
money and will save much more as time goes on. Legislative reforms
have likewise been anticipated, and the Company is now as sound at the
circumference as it always has been at the core "
In the next place, the ending of the first quarter presents an excel
lent opportunity for comparing this year with last.
The amount paid policy holders is $o,60S,416.50,""an increase of
S/,070,Sjj.e6,_ t The receipts for premiums were $15,0/12,43457, a decrease
or the period. This is a shrinkage of less than gtj per
ent paid for expenses was S-'iÿJJJSJ jt, a reduction of
\
east. The amo
$1547,270.36. J
This remarkable showing is a good thing to be kept in mind by everybody—
those now insured in the Mutual Life, and those who should be. It cannot
s be accounted lor by the smaller amount of new business written. Of the
saving for the quarter, the sum of $390,961.52 is in items not connected *
with the obtaining of new business. •
t
In the next place we find that this Company is doing business
more business than any other company in the world with one exception.
Far from being paralyzed or demoralized it is forging right ahead. Policies
by the hundred are being written each day; honest trustees, keenly
alert, arc directing its affairs ; faithful and experienced men arc doing its
Intricate work; loyal agents are explaining its advantages and discriminating
people arc obtaining its protection.
In the next place wc find that there need be no question as
to the future. A policy in the Mutual Life is just as good as gold.
No obligation could possibly he better. A bond of the United States
Government is no safer. It will, therefore, be a misfortune if ary one
is misled by the writer who prints for revenue or lor notoriety, or by,
the attorney who is out for his clients, or the competitor who is out for
himself, or even by the gentlemen who have organized themselves into
committees under an honest misapprehension of the facts. Such incidents
may tend to hinder business, but need deter no one who needs insurance.*
With economy, which means rapid improvement in regard to earning
of surplus for dividends, everywhere at work in the Mutual Life; with
its immense size as the »asis for moderate general expenses; with smaller
liability for renewal commissions to agents than any other Company; with
the cost of new business limited by law for all Companies, how can any
possibly better provide for the uncertainties of the future than
one
through a policy in the first Insurance Company in America, and the
•trongest in the world— (

New HaVen, Genu., June 7. The
iiminal «invention of the Knights of
Columbus met early, today, for an all-day
session,when 11 gnat part of the unfinished
business to b< transacted by the National
Convention will la, disposed of. Hovi ral
matters of considerable importance to the
order are on the programme for discus
sion. the first of which will lie on the ques
tion ol the Knights of Columbus acting
as sponsor for the Paulist Fathers, an
order of Catholic priests whose hcadquar
in Washington U B said that
the Very Rev. A. P Doyle, rector of the
Apostolic Mission House at that city,
will appear Iteforc the national Ualy hero
today, for the pur)«wo of making an ap|tcai
to the Knights of Columbus for their sup
|»ut.
Another question which will lie taken
tip today is that of raising a fund for the
San Francisco members of the order. An
effort will be made to raise $100,000 by
assessments on the various councils.
One of the more important matters
disposed of at the meeting late yesterday
was that of raising the minimum initia
tion fee from $4 to $10. This increase
is only the first step, it is said, toward a
raise to $25 for the lowest foe. at the
annual convention next year or the jeur
after.
