Empress Theater, beginning this after
noon. Kami is a genuine Prince of
India and there are many strange things
Kami's act. Paramount among j
them is the mvsterious disappearance
of a woman associate while confined in
a box in midair.
By no apparent means of exit, she
simply goes away from there. The
box containing her body rests on sev
eral supports that are in turn placed j
on top of a table. From time to time
her hand appears, producing various
articles that the conjurer has caused
to disappear. Stage mngie always is
of intense interest.
Besides the entertaining qualities of"
such an act it also affords food for
much thought on part of those view

Officials Must Consult
Stockholders Before They
Close Company's Books
The officers of the Bankers' and j
Merchants' Mutual Fire Relief nssocia- i
tion of Forest Grove do not have the I
authority to wind up the affairs of that
company without the approval of the
members of the association, according!
to an opinion rendered to Insurance I
Commissioner Harvey Wolls by Attor
ney General Brown today.
It appears that nn old line company
offered to issue new policies to the
members of this association providing
they would cancel tho policies during
the term of the insurance, and with
this agreement the mutual company
would receive a commission on the pre
iums paid by the members to this stock
company and ns an inducement to in
sure in this stock company the officers
of the association proposed to return a
portion of this commission to the mem
bers as n return premium on their old
policies. This offer the attorney gen
eral holds is a rebate and in violntion
of section 4(l9 of Lord's Oregon Laws.

mis amount ot insurance was $14,000.
Their obligations to other members for
fire claims amoluntcd to 48,000, making
a total indebtedness of $22,000 with th
total assets not to exceed $2,000. So
the above proposal would amount to but
very little to the members.
Commissioner Wells stated today that
on January 12 he wrote to the Bankers'
& Merchants' Mutual requesting that
they notify their members of the con
dition of the company in order that
they might protect their interests. On
