r L REGULATION OF INSURANCE Horrii Brown AdToo&t.g Ocoptulonal EtU Legiilati.a, KAY NIT BE ABLE TO REVOKE LICENSE Capld la Pat, lader the Baa at WMltrti University lt- (From a Staff Correspondent) LINCOLN, Oct. 7. (Special. Attorney General N orris Brown today said that he believed the best method of coping with the evils which have been exposed In the New York Investigation is for congress to enact a maximum rate law, baaed on reasonable calculations as to the average expectancy and rates of Interest. He says ! that the Insurance cornoratlons are auasl- public in their nature and they are sub- I ect to control to prevent the exaction of uniiiio r.i.a in.iunHn. i ho nmnoul to re- I autre the use of a uniform or standard policy as a precedent for state Interference with the freedom of contract between the Insured and the Insurer. He does not be lieve In th Idea of state Insurance sug tested by Commissioner Host of Wisconsin ind Governor Folk of Missouri. Brown said that he did not see how his lepartment could be congea to pass on n. nsurence a.iuauon at wie umougn ne is luuy mri vi mo l srhlch have been uncovered ana preaicis Jiat without governmental control thesel orporatlons win coniroi me nnances 01 intire country within a few years. I He favors the adoption of a statute which 111 fix the rates at such figures that the treat surpluses will not be built up to tempt I nanlpulators. ;'What is needed," said the attorney gen iral. "la ' s statute fixing the maximum ate. which may be demanded for various d asses of risks. If given supervision of nsurance. congress can enact H. There sill be no difficulty In determining the ates. The actuaries, having the tables f expectancy and the rates of Interest, can .termlne what constitutes a fair rate. The etlmony of President McCall shows that :i enormous surpluses have been built ujj ji :ause the rate of mortality Is less than lit which had been assumed to be prob- i e In fixing the rates. The public Is paying entirely too much or Insurance and the companies are quasl mblic In their nature and are subject to ontrol, I believe, for the purpose of pre senting the Imposition of excessive rates. f It is feasible, as Is often suggest-ed. to orce the -adoption by legislation of a stan- lard policy. It appears to me that the icheme to fix maximum rates Is practl- ble." May Hot Be Able to Re-veke. The recent decision of the suprem-e court n the case or tne nanaers i d ui iaa i orld against Searle, has raised some loubt as to the power of the auditor to evoke tire license of an Insurance com- I any. That would mteriere wim any ac- i Jon In the case of the three big New Tork I iompanles which are being Investigated.

Tire present licenses expire with he first of the year and It Is discretionary rlth the auditor whether he will Issue I lew ones 'Until the companies comply with I my conditions which ha may prescribe In I fhe Interests of the policy holders.

Bertha Blue, who was placed In the Home for the Friendless more than a year ago, and Is now In the custody of a respectable family, the name of which Is known only to the superintendent of the Institution. Blue has employed an attorney and there has been some talk of habeas corpus pro ceedings against the superintendent of the Home for the Friendless, Mrs. Johnson. He contends that the child was placed In the home as a boarder and that he had not Intended to surrender his right to her. He says that she was there about a month when the superintendent plaeed her with the family In which she Is now dield. The state officials are trying to determine whether or not In placing the girl in the home he gave her up to be a ward of the state. He contends that he picked" the girl up on the streets of Omaha, but the officials of the Institution say that she was an inmate of the home when he adopted her. uovemor MlcKey informed Blue ana nis attorney this afternoon that he will look into the case and secure additional facts before taking any action. There Is no ob- jeouon to me man lr ne is legally enuuea to the child, but the officials are Inclined to the' belief that bis action In placing her In the home constituted a surrender which made it legal to give her Into the custody of the family which has her at present xvltm Swore Away His Liberty, The friends of Elmer J. Russell, a Boone county man. wh- has served two of a t.n Tearg- sentence for Incest, have filed numerous affidavits and statements with Governor Mickey In support of an appllca- tlon for a pardon In which they allege that he was convicted In pursuance of a conspiracy between the wife and the daugh- ter, Nora Russell, the complainant, to get rid of him In order that his property might be enjoyed by the family and the wife and mother left free to continue her liaaon with a man named Pharmelee, with whom she Is alleged to be living In Okla- noma. Such persons as Sheriff Loran Clark and seven members of the Jury which con- vlcted Russell now assure the governor that the wife had said that the husband was not guilty and that It was planned to get ri of him. The Jurors and Hans Horlock, botcher, allege mat me chler purpose WAM tn wife's desire to live with Pharme na1 This affiant also sets up another reason for the alleged perfidy of wife In the fact that her husband had. woman s brother tor aauitery.'

I Local attorneys are complaining a g'ood I deal because this city does not have a I permanent branch of the federal court like Omaha. Those who are agitating the mat ter say that Lincoln lawyers are handi capped when they take cases In the federal court because they have to go to Omaha when motions are argued and attendance on that tribunal takes them away from I their offices. Another drawback urged Is the necessity of going to Omaha to search I the federal court records' when real estate I abstracts are made.

As he arrived with a little over 120 In his pocket he proceeded to , drink some of It up before going to work. When It came time to retire young Harnett told hlra his mother kept boarders and Johnson em braced the opportunity" to enjoy a good night's sleep. Tuesday he still felt too wealthy to go to work and established headquarters for the day at Sherman Ennls" saloon, where he says he drank beer all day and evening. About 10 o'clock Tuesday evening ha and Harnett started for the hotel again, but Johnson says Harnett took him west of the saloon In stead of south, and after they had gone a couple of blocks Harnett stepped be hind him and dealt him a number of blows on the head with a billy or club of, some kind, knocking him down and then kick ing him In the face, which his 'appear ance corroborates. Harnett asked him where his money was, and In a semi-conscious condition Johnson told him if he would keep, on looking he would find It In his -trousers pockets. Johnson, with his face besmeared wifb blood and cut in sev eral places, and both eyes swollen shut and black and blue, lay where he iwai knocked down until morning, not knowing where he was. In the morning he went back to the saloon, washed up and related his troubles and was sent to this place to seek consolation by the process of law Harnett claims to be entirely ignorant of what he was arrested for and claims to know noticing about the occurrence, but Johnson is very positive he Is the fellow who decorated his countenance and took his money.

NEW CONSUMPTION REMEDY Prof. Bearing; Creates Considerable Attention by a Statement Made In Parle. PARIS. Oct. 7. At the closing session of the International Tuberculosis congress to, day Prof, von Behrlng made a. statement relative to his new curative principle for tuberculosis. It was decided to hold the next congress at Washington In 19us. Prof. Behrlng's statement attracted much attention. Distinguished medical men from many countries occupied the platform and filled the salon of the grand palace. The professor said. In the course of the last two years I recognised with certainty the existence of a curative principle completely different from the antl-toxlne principle. This new curative principle plays an Initial role in the operation of the Immunity derived from my bovo-vai-elne, which has proved effec tive against animal tuberculosis during the last four yeara. This curative principle re pose, upon the Impregnation of the living cell, of the organism with a substance originating from tubereoee virus, which suustauce I designate "T. C." Prof. Behrlng then gave a lengthy, tech nical description of how "T. C " waa In troduced Into the cellular orgailsm and ..14 It had already gives marked result in the treatment of animals. He expressed the confident belief that his researches would permit similar curative results in humans. He added that he was unable to say how soon positive results would be ob tainable, but he felt as certain that these result, would be attained as when he first announced his discovery of a new method for treating diphtheria.

Slowly on Pro posals for Trade Treaty. BERLIN, Oct. 7. The making of a new trade agreement between the United State, and Germany is beset with so many diffi culties on both sides that the conviction exist, at the Foreign office that the ques tion cannot be disposed of between now and March 1, when the nevjL German tariff with Its modified reciprocal treaties with European states comes Into effect. Con sequently there Is no particular haste In the second section of the Foreign office, which la dealing with trade subjects, to put Germany's proposals to the United States Into final form. They probably will not be presented for several weeks. The Impression existed here until recently that President Roosevelt would send a commission of experts to examine the sub ject from the German point of view, but as Washington has not yet sent a com mission It Is still desired that the pres ident send a representative of the American government to whom may be explained the various part, of the questions by the German government tn a way scarcely pos sible through correspondence. It Is be lieved at the Foreign office that publlo opinion In the United States Is exaggerated concerning what Germany will ask of the United States. It Is added that Germany', proposals will really be moderate and may be satisfied without especial changes In the American tariff system. An agreement It I. thought may be arranged between the United States and Germany, and thl. Is, It Is added, within the president', pow ers. On thl. aide, however. It is necessary to submit such an agreement to the Reichs tag, as changing the customs Is beyond the power, of the executive.

With regard to redis tribution, Mr. Redmond said that while In the first stage, of the struggle he felt bound to say that he was 'quite convinced that the government would make a further attempt, and that the attempt would be successful beyond all probability of doubt if the government was confronted In Ire land by a divided and weakened, Irish nationalist party.
