So Newark Wnist Compnny Asks
That a Receiver Be Nnmed.
TXIBNTON, Oct. 1. Application for the
appointment of a receiver was made to
day in the Court of Chancery by Ilus
scll V. Bloom, of Newark, for the King
Waist Company, of that city. Tho appli
cation Is based on tho ground that tho
company for the past two years has
i found It dltllcult to conduct Its business
at. u profit.
One of the prlnclpnl reasons given for
this condition of affairs Is depression In
business, while another Is that tho con
cern Is not able to keep up with tho
styles that mark the demnnd for fabrics
mauufnetuted by it. Uloom claims that
the company has no money with which
to meet Its pay roll nnd nsks for a de
cree of Insolvency.

the laws of New Jersey on August 26,
1901. with a capital stock of $100,000, tho
object being to manufacture shirt waists.

Use Mortality Tables to
Show That Chances of
Death in War Are Not Ex
cessive. Life Insurance companies, reading each
day of tho enormous loss of llfo 011 Eu
ropean battlefields, seo striking analogies
In tho chances of soldiers eurvlvlng bat
tles and tho chances of men at various
ages to live through certain periods.
The American Experience. Table of Mor
tality, which Is used as a basis for mak
ing ot llfo Insuranco premiums, shows
that between tho ngos ot 49 and 63 deaths
number 65.C per cent, out of every 1000
men In times of peace. ThlB represents
exactly tho total loss ot life at the bat
tle of Gettysburg, which Was considered
tho bloodiest fight ot the Civil War.
In other words, It Is pointed out by tho
New York Llfo Insuranco Company, each
soldier who went Into battle at Gettys
burg had the samo chance of surviving
that a man 49 years old now hns of liv
ing to bo 3 years. At the battle of
Antletnm, the Federal loss was 39,7 per
1000 men. Those who went Into that hat
tlo had the samo chance of coming out
allvo ns a man now 40 years old has of
living to bo 44. At tho battlo of Chlck
nmauga the death rate In the Union
army wns 47.6 per 1000 men, which, In
the opinion of the compnny, is equiva
lent to tho peace risk of n man now 23
years old living to bo 29. At Shlloh the
loss was 42.2 per 1000 men, equivalent to
tho peace risk of a. man living from 30
to 35.
Taking tho battles of tho Civil "War as
a basis, Insurance actuaries have fig
ured out a table showing tho battlo death
rate and tho equivalent peace risk at
various ages. It follows:
