resultant disasters to every line of business, to every profession,
and every wapre-earner. It is therefore to your interest to help
to make rwr.ey plentiful in Oregon by simply keeping it here.
The sworn statements of life insurance companies on file with
State Insurance Commissioner S. A. Kozer, Salem, Oregon,
was sent cut of OREGON for life insurance premiums
in the past live years.
is the total returned here to pay death losses and dividends in
the same live years.
is the net amount drained out of Oiegon in 5 years
for life insurance premiums sent to enrich Wisconsin, New
York and ether states by making their home companies the
custodian?: of these trust funds from Oregon. Does anyone
doubt that the commercial supremacy of New York is due to
the centralization of the insurance assets in that market, more
than to ar.y other one factor? More money is handled by the
insurance companies than all the transportation companies in
the country, and it is the centralization of these immense
accumulations in one locality that makes that locality the seat
of the financial empire.
It is the personal interest of every ritizen of Ore
