after the new year and then dispose of
them. Who carried on the negotiations
with him? Did you?"
"Randolph and I had charge of the ne

Loan of $500,000 to Hnrrimnn.
Mr. Perkins said that the New York
Life Insurance Cdmpany had loaned to
E. H. Harrlman on January 14, the
sum of $500,009. and that the note was re
newed twice and will expire Januarv 6.
190S. The Harrlman loan and the Hege-
man loan of JoO.OJO figure In the com
pany's books and were In the aanual re
port of the company.
The Harrlman loan, Mr. Perkins ex
plained, was secured by gilt-edged securi
ties In railroad bonds, and the rate of In
terest on the loan was 4i per cent. At
the request of Mr. Hushes. Mr. Perkins
thfen described the agency management.
3Ianagcment of Agencies.
The original method of celtlnc business
was through general agencies. Certain ter
ritories were r armed out to certain men,
who made subcontracts with the actual so
Hcttlng agents. There was no contract be
tween tl.e latter, and the corapaay and the
soliciting agent had merely a subcontract
with tfct i;rn-ral agent. They were paid br
a mvortlon en flrst premlam and on the
premiums for the following years. This sys
tem was fol-ow ed for nearly thirty years,
but about I was allowed to try a new
system cut West The company was to rent
an cfnc and place a cashier in charce. The
policy-holders paid their fees to the cashier,
who was the company's representative. The
agency director were also appointed, and'
OPENED TO THE PUBLIC
each soHcHor agent had his own contract
direct with the New York. Life Insurance
Company. This system has now been In
troduced evtrywherc By having men working-
for sa.ary we find men work not only
for the vclume of business but quality, and
acurc a r.crraaccnt staff. There are about
ten agency Inrectors In this country who
are in charge of the directors. There, are
to lnipectora at large who travel all over
the country, who receive a salary of J10O0
a month. In the domestic field the total sal
aries for' these agency Inspectors amounts to
about $120,000 a year. The agency directors
get a bonus betides of 52 a thousand on
all the business done by the new agents
whom the directors secure.
Commissions Are Over Half.
Thomas A. Buckner. vice-president of
the New York Life Insurance Company,
was called to the stand. Ha stated that
the salaries of the agency directors aver
aged 530 a year. They ranged from 5150
to 550") a month. There were about a dozen
at the latter salary. Witness stated that
in the year 19M the agency directors re
ceived In bonuses about 5100.000. There
was but one form of contract with agents
and no secret arrangement by which one
would get what another would not. The
average commission paid to agents was
under 50 per cent, and the highest W.
Mr. Hughes read from the company's re
port showing that In the first year under
the new plans, commissions paid to agents
amounted to 57.27S.S33. and stated that that
sum was In excess by at least 5200,000 of
0 per cent averages.
The largest sum a smart agent could
earn was about 523,000 a year, continued
the witness. He had never paid money
to get agents away from other com
panies. Mr. Hughes pointed out that the com
pany paid 5KC.SS0 for bonuses. 51.605,471 In
salaries to managers, etc, nd 5125.735 In
expenses of conventions. In 1903 54,221.
295.40 expenses had to be charged against
the premiums besides 5S.WO.000 for regular
commissions; thus the total expenses
were 510.7S3.3S3 J and first-year premiums
were J13.P05.4SS. '
In 190i the total expenses were 511.115.
64. and first year's premiums were 514.
019,507. Of the 511.116.S63 expenses, 56,654.
13S were commissions on flrst year's
premiums and 56,462,726 was bonuses and
other general expenses.
Mr. Hughes asked for returns of the
business for 1903-04 and the cost of se
curing the policies.
Mr. Perkins was recalled to the stand
and asked about the work "Nyllc" It Is
the name of an organization of the New
York Life Insurance Company, and Is
formed by the company's initials. Mr
Perkins was asked to prepare a state
ment on the organization for tomorrow.
