v Ci. rvunsourg, March tt. After today
the Equitable Lift Assurance Society of
New York and other American insurance
companies will write no more policies in
this country, at least not until internal
peace is again restored. The insurance
companies were compelled to take this
step for their own protection, as of the
deaths among the policy holders in Russia
fully six par cent were directly due to the
political and economical disturbances ex
isting in Russia. The American com
panies who are doing large business in
Russia suffered considerable loss last year
owing to the fact that so many of their
policy holders were killed in riots and as
there seems to be but little prospect of an
improvement of the situation in the near
future, they found it necessary to sus
pend their business until further notice.

There is no foundation for the statement
that Japan is In a fair way to become the
owner of the Philippines. The United
States will turn over ths Philippines to
Japan when England turns over Hong
Kong to China. '

people against missionaries, the feeling is
as intense against Germ ins and English
as against Americans."
