DEPARTMENT IS SELF SUPPORTING Report of Retiring Manager C. O. Broxon Shows It Does Not Cost State a Penny— Has Permanent Investment. OFFERS FULL PROTECTION Volume of Business Written Amounting to Quarter of Mil lion Dollars—Administration Expenses Held to Minimum. After a year and a half administra tion, C. O. Broxon of Boise retires is insurance lnanuK* r of the workmen's compensation fund operated under the terms of the. workmen's compensation act, leaving behind him th at depart ment's first annual report showing that It is self-sustaining and does not cost the state a penny; that a quarter of a million dollars worth of business was written; permanent Investments amounting to $142,770.01 have been made; both employer and employe hn\e been amply protected and the costs of operating the department have been held to the minimum. Of the 7906 employers In this state who are purchasing workmen's com pensation insurance, 5139 or 65 per cent of the same, are subscribers of the Idaho state insurance fund, the report shows. From July 1. 1917, to Jan. 1. 1918, the administrative expense of the department was $10,585 ,".9; from Ja Jy 1 to Oct. 31, 1918, the administritive expense was $28,219.36, while the id- j ministrative expense from Jan. 1, 191S, to Oct. 31, 1918, the first 10 month.* of j full enforcement of the law, was $1 , 633.77. Manager Broxon says In part in his report : BELONG TO EMPLOYERS. "It must not be forgotten that the question of reserves, as well as that of surplus, enters into this matter, but here again the advantage is on the side of the state fund for the reason that all surplus and permanent reserves, other than those set aside to mature claims, and even this will be increased by re versions that are bound to oi be-|tho long to the employers and are hold for their benefit or are distributed to them as dividends, which is not true in the case of the casualty companies. "During the first 10 months of the operation of the fund, it will be seen that I here has been accumulated a net i surplus of earned premium over all I losses (profits) amounting to $10, 279.66. while the statutory surplus fund cilie catastrophe reserve) amounts to $22,952.01 more. This likewise, belongs to the employers lor the reason that no catastrophe has occurred and there- j fore there is no liability existing against : this fund, which will always be pro-j tected by our re-insurance contract as ! pet forth in the actuary's report. Thus, j In addition to the lower rates charged, j the fund has been able to save for its j insured employers $33.181.67, or nearly i 15 per cent of the amount collected j from them, and which could be dis- j tributed to them except that the law and good Ins urance principles require that it be left, in the fund for their. greater protrriion.

The prin ciple pursued was to make each de linquent employer pay merely the cost of the effort of tin* department to n* duce him to come under the law. The expense of the law's enforcement is an expense of the fund and is. there fore, paid by those employers who liav • complied with the law by insuring in state fund.

The state In surance manager has adopted the pol icy of investing the moneys of the fund in no other security than those offered by the people of the state of Idaho. The only exception to this rule has been the investment in liberty bonds of the United States government, which it was regarded as a patriotic duty to purchase during the period of the war.

HAS FIRST HAND DATA ON WAR MANAGEMENT Spent Over Year at Front as Y. M. C. A. and Red Cross Worker; Elected Governor by Record Vote. Capital Xpws Special Service,) Washington, Jan. 2 " A new camli (Uile for the republican nomination with a diversity of strong points looms bitfli and bright on the political hori zon. Whether tie lms thought ..f himself as a possibility or not is not known, led if JI en î V J. Allen had been cher ishing the ambition to make himself strong in tho national ratntuMgn two > "ars hence, a better kickoff than his boom received at the occasion of his inauguration as governor of Kansas n low days ago would not have been possible. He discussed what in these times, now that the war is over, is the most popular issue, namely; was there gross mismanagement, were America's sol dier boys mistreated and were need less lives sacrificed? Governor Allen was near the front throughout tlie most of the fighting period after the United States entered the war. lie was there for the V. M. 'A., and ns a Red Cross worker. In Hi is connection, he saw his duty to ills country first and remained in France throughout the campaign for nomination and election, lotting his personal political fortunes take care of themselves. VOTERS REMEMBERED. The -voters of Kansas did not forget him. however, because he was not home to tell them about himself. They nominated him overwhelmingly as the Republican candidate for governor in his absence and elected him by a ma jority which on a percentage basis was the largest margin ever given to a candidate for governor by the state. His inaugural address pointed out weaknesses and abuses In tho war management as they came to his at tention in a first hand study at th< front. He said that the American people who had to remain at home • apprised of the real f ids and that they were lulled into a sense of false security when American boys were being killed in swarms by the G< rmans because our own troops were short of artillery defenses and air plane equipment. Reports of the United States troops dominating the air in their own sector, lie said were false and that it was merely a "hot air" domination. But what was more important, Gov ernor Allen said something that got him into-the newspapers, making the only inaugural address which so far this year has been carried to all parts of the country by the press associa tions and cabled back to Fnrope. RENOWNED AS EDITOR. The prominence which his speech received in the newspapers was not altogether due to what he said but partly to the fact that Henry J. Allen was a national figure before he was nominated for governor of Kansas. He has been editor of the Witchita Dea con for many years and as a publicist ranks with William Allen White and the late Alfred Henry Bewis. He was for a time correspondent of the Kansas City Star in Washington, devoting his attention solely to politi cal topics and made some friendships while here that will make it difficult foP him to keep out of print hence forth if, as governor, he says anything <»r interest to the public at large. When the press report of his in augural address appeared In Washing ton. a Republican statesman who has been living in a well lighlning-rodded atmosphere for some time, was one of the first to acknowledge that the new governor of Kansas was in posi tion to do tremendous harm to other ambitious presidential booms. lie pointed out that Allen occupies on enviable position in that, having been at the war front, he speaks the language of the Yankee soldier and a\ ill speak and write of the questions uppermost in the minds of the re turning heroes, but, he said, there are other elements of strength possessed by the Kansas governor which tnuct not be underestimated. No man mentioned for the Repuhll '•an nomination, with tho possible ex ception Of General Leonard Wood, more nearly stands ns the Interpreter of the Roosevelt principles and th ■ ories. He was one of the first sop porters yf Roosevelt, sticking with th. lnle Colonel from his riso through Bull Mooaism to death. Although he went over to th.'
