The state has a stringent anti-rebate
' law for the first time, and it is expect
ed to put a stop to the practices under
which a number of young companies
have flourished. It provides that a com
pany or its agents may be lined not
less than $100 nor more than $500 for
giving a rebate. An agent may be im
prisoned for thirty days for rebating,
and a person accepting a favor from
the "agent or the company may be fined
from $100 to 500 and imprisoned for
thirty days. The agent giving or of
fering the rebate shall, have his license
canceled, and be may be disbarred
from doing business in Indiana for
one year. The state auditor may re
voke, the license oft the company ex
tending a rebate.- ' ' " '
An act known as the Stahl law pro
vides severe penalties for an agentror
company that misrepresents policies.
It is provided that no cpmpany shall
send out "fake advertisements or mis
leading circulars" on penalty of hav
ing Its state license revoked. An agent
who misleads any one regarding the
policy he is selling shall .be prohibited
from selling insurance In Indiana for

the McCarthy act was adopted. ' It pro
vides that. an agent who fails or re
fuses to meet his obligations with his
company shall have his license re
voked and shall not be permitted to do
business in the state.
The auditor of the state says that he
will keep a blacklist of the "dead-
beat" agents at his office so that the
companies can avoid them.
What is regarded by Mr. Billheimei
and the insurance men In Indianapolis
as the most important feature of the
new .code Is an act introduced by Sena
tor Will R. ' Wood. It defines what
shall go into a policy and provides tor
state supervision of the state compa.
Dies by the auditor. The companies
shall deposit with the auditor at the
end of the first year mortgages or se
curities amounting to the full cash
value of the policy at that time. The
companies will have sixty days in
which to make the deposits.
For the purpose of, ascertaining the
solvency of any company dping busi
ness in Indiana the auditor is author
ized to make an investigation at any
r time and to compel any company to
put up funds he may regard as neces
sary to estahiish a proper reserve.
Under the Wood law special con
tracts are prohibited. Several Indiana
'-companies that 'are now establishing
themselves have "made good" -by writ
ing' special contracts. The special con
tract feature applies to foreign as well
as to state companies. The law pro
hibits the predating of policies so that
policy holders can get the lower rate.
This provision is expected to put an
end to tbe practice of some of the
companies of getting business by giv
ing their customers a lower age rating.
Mr. Billheimer says the Wood law is
far in advance of any similar measure
in the United States. Wrhile it was
drawn so that the state shall super
vise the companies and protect the
policy holders, the auditor insists that
the law will not work a hardship on
any company that is doing a legitimate
business. ' . ' '
A new reserve loan law was enacted.
It provides that the companies shall
deposit with the auditor securities
amounting to the full cash surrender
value of the policies it has written, the
amount of the deposit to be Increased
as the cash value of the policies In
creases. . i
A new law was enacted for the in
corporation ' and operatipn of casualty
companies, providing explicitly what
kind of business they shall write. A
casualty company must have a paid
itp capitalization of $100,000.
It Is provided that Indiana life, com

All the fifty candidates for "naturali

belonged to any organization which
forbade membership in the militia or
army of the United. States. No one an

WHSSE SHELMAN STANDS.
Approves Legislation to Improve th
- - Conditions of Labor. : -fFrom
Sherman's Speech of Accept
The Republican party believes in the
equality of all men before the 'law;
believes in granting labor's every re
quest that does not seek to accord
rights to one man. denied to another
Fair-minded labor asks no more, no
less, and approves the record of the
Republican party because of that par
ty's acts. -
I have helped to make my party's
record in the enactment of the Eight
Hour . law, the Employers' Liability
act, the statutes to minimize, the haz
ard of railroad employes, the .Child
Labor law for the District of Columbia
and other .enactments designed especial
ly to improve the conditions of labor.
I cannot hope, to better state my posi
tion on injunctions than by a specific
endorsement of Mr. Taft's Cincinnati
declaration on that subject. That en
dorsement I make.
, Giant Cranes' Minuet.
Australia, the- land of oddities,
animal, vegetable and mineral, has
few more curious creatures than the
giant cranes often five and six feet
in height, with beautiful blue gray
plumage, which are called native
companions. These huge birds mate
for life and as mates are singular
ly and touchingly devoted to one
another. Among their practices
that of dancing together is the most
remarkable; To and fro and up and
down, beneath a scraggy tree near a
creek or water hole, a pair of these
curious birds may be seen in the
hour of dawn footing it gravely in a
sort of grotesque minuet. There is
a strange sort of angularity about
all their movements, but withal a
certaiiT grace, bizarre and notable.
Curious stor:e pre told of the won
derful human-like devotion' one to
another which is sometimes shown
by these great cranes. Si, '
