Security Building. Ninth Floor, Madison Street and Fifth Avenue, Ciii.cgo THE COVENANT. TheExpl as to the Ualesbers; sfa- C. R. Dixon, manager for the Cov enant Mutual Life association of Galesburg, was in the city today. As some little dissatisfaction had arisen in this city among the policy holders of the Covenant Mutual Ben. efit association on account of the ap parent increase oi assessment npon the older members. The Amors, in an interview elicited the following replies to the questions usually asked by those interested. As to the in. crease of assessment referred to in the opening of this article, an inves tigation shows that it was simply a readjustment of rates, and is fully explained by Mr. Dixon in his replies aa given below to a seriee of questions: 'What is the basis of yonr in crease?" The increase was made in accord ance with the mortality experience ol the association and the age of the, in sured at the time he secured his pol icy. No increase or change has beeti made in the amount of the expenst assessment." Whv is it that the increase i- greater in some cases, at least or members carrying f2,500 than or members carrying $5. WO?" I be increase is in proportion U the amount of the policy on like ages: the assessments have been adjusted in accordance with the age of eaei member at tne time bis policy wt issued. Heretofore a man aged27 ai the time his policy was issued, pair the same amount as one 38 years ol at the time he made application. wnicn was manifestly unjust an' wrong; under the read justment eaci pays according to his age, at th time his policy was issued. Const-. quently the man at 38 is increase' more than one at the age of 37; an! thus it is possible that a policy foi 5.000, issued at the age of 27 is no increased as much as one issued a: the age ot 38 for 2,500. "On yonr last sheet of mortuart payment appears a loss of $20,000: the members claim to nave under stood that the association never. until recently, wrote more than $5, 000 on any one life, and only recenth increased that to f 10.000. When di: you commence to take these of (20, 000. and do yon think it safe?" "A number of years ago the limit of indemnity was increased to 110, 000 and in 1892 to 120.000; we be lieve it safe in the manner in whict we handle it. We accept no one foi 20,000 if there is a single flaw in tht family or personal history, and thei. nly after ascertaining that th moral hazard is of the best. W e re quire two separate examinations b the liest qualified physicians to b. 'Has the association lost money?'' "Yes, the association has loi money from the fact that for severa years thosw members holding certifi cates, have not paid sufficiently t pay their share of the death losses. II the association has lost monet and it was necessary to adjust as. sessments, now does it come thai the association makes such a good showing, showing assests of nearh fl.009,000 Jan. 1 last past?" "J he reason it enables us to makt as good a showing as it does is ow ing to the fact that since 1890 the new contracts have paid largely in excess of the amount paid b the members Lolling the certifi cates issued prior to 1890. If you are now 42 years old and that was your age at joining, and were to apply for a policy today, your bi-monthly assessment would be f u. 'Jo on fd.oou insurance." "What are the salaries of your officers president, vice president, secretary and treasurer?" The salaries of the four oflicerr combined, xiz: President, vice president, secretary and treasurer, are (10,400 per year." Will this increase suffice, in your opinion, to carry the association along? Will it be-necessary.to furth er increase assessments every half dozen vears?" Answering this question I would say that no matter what my opinion may be as to t,he likelihood of future increase of assessments, the statutes of both Illinois and Iowa prohibit any official assurance to be given by the officers of any insurance company or society that the cost of carrying the insurance will not increase un less such institution collects from its policy holders the regular premium established for old line companies. which would be at the age of 42 I2X.95 in-monthly on (5,000 insur ance. What was the cause of the death of your (20.000 Los Angeles member? When did he loin?" Relative to the cause of death of Mr. Mead, late of Los Angeles, Call fornia, would say that this was one of those unfortunate cases; he was going home from his office at dusk and was run over by a drunken horseman and died from these in juries. He was insured less than 60 days." 'Does not the increase of member- chip balance the increase of the num ber of deaths on account of the ad vancing age of members?" All life companies, associations and fraternal societies must reach the average mortality among selected lives, and the assessment cannot be kept for all time below that cost." Any other information in justice to yourselves and to your members?" l be directory of the association has only one thing in view, and that is to place all on an equitable basis and to conduct the affairs of the association that no disappointment may come at any time to the bene ficiaries when a policy becomes a claim." .
