THE 'PITTSBURG DISPATCH, SATURDAY, PEBRIJABY 23, 1889,
F0ETI-TH1SD ACTUAL KEPOET
Or the Connccllcnt Menial Iilfo Insurance
To tuc Members:
Excepting a loss which -was fullv made
known immediately- on discovery, the year
1SSS has been one of great prosperity. In
every direction the company experiences a
steady increase in sire and strength, with a
decreasing ratio of expenses; so that while it
becomes thereby increasingly attractive to
new insurers, it is also increasingly valua
ble to its older members; its new business
being secured on such terms as to make it
an advantage and not an expense to them.

Total expenditure $6,699,144 64
Leaving a balance of 5721,331 32 to be
carried to increase net or ledger assets.
The death losses lor the year were some
what above our average experience, but
were so iar inside the mortality to be ex
pected by the table and provided for by our
premiums as to leave a saving of about
480.000. For two years the death rate has
been above our average. Hut even at its
highest it has been far below the mortality
table, proving at once the carclul selection
of our business and the abundant safety of
the table on which our operations are based.
Our losses have been paid with equal re
gard to the prompt satisfaction ot every just
claim, and to the protection of the honest
members against every unjust claim.
"We still follow the principle that when a
company has reached any considerable size,
not only is it tetter for both old and new
members that new business should be taken
only at such a price as does not reduce the
dividends on the old, but that there should
be a general tendency to a reduction in the
expense ratio to ofliet the slowly-increasing
difficulty of earnine large dividends. 'What
ever is sot in violation of this principle is
a source of ultimate weakness and not ol
strength, whatever its magnitude. It is a
great satisfaction to the management that
the company has been able to increase its
business at a reduced rate of expense. Its
new business is, therefore, peculiarly valu
able. The expense ratio for 1888 was only
S.IH5 per cent, a ratio less than that of any
IKTEKEST ASD EENTS.
The income from investments during the
year, 7hile yielding a good margin for sur
plus, indicates the diflicultyof finding quite
as ready and satisfactory employment for
money as in the previous year.
FBOFITS ON" SALES.
In 18S8 we sold for ST7j,7C2 44 real estate
which cost us ?C89,670 29; a net profit of
This brings real estate sales to Jan. 1,
1S88, up to a grand total of $7,168,726 19 of
property which cost us $6,330,458 87 a net
proSt ot JS3S.267 32.
Of the 23 parcels sold during the year 2G
sold at a profit of JS8.175 20, and 2 sold at a
loss of $2,083 05 balance, $85,092 13.
On bonds sold nnd paid at maturity dur
ing the year, there was a net profit of $45,
075; on sundry items there'was a loss of
52,210 74; giving a total income from profit
aud loss items ot $128,920 4L
For the first time in its history of 43 years
the company has to record a loss by the de
fault of one ot its financial correspondents, a
class of men through whom most of its loans
ate placed according to the general business
custom in such investments, and who are
fcelected with exceptional care for the char
acter and ability requisite for the most im
portant and confidential relations which
they hold; men who, except in this instance,
have served this company with rare fidelity
and success in all these years; to whose
wisdom and faithful service much of the
success of this compauv has been due.
The amount chargeable to profit and loss
from this cause proves to be $483,448 01;
deducting the income from profit and loss
above stated, the balance charged to profit
and loss is $354,527 GO. 2fo credit is taken
for the value oi property restored to us, nor
will there be until it is realized by sale.
During, the time this money was being ab
stracted this correspondent handled correct
ly over $17,000,000, and possessed cot only
our confidence, but that ot the business men
of his own city and State in very marked
degree. His fitness was unqualifiedly in
dorsed by the most competent men who knew
To rightly appreciate the effect of this
loss upon the. standing "of the company and
the safety of its contracts it should be con
sidered in its proportions and not simply in
itB aggiegate. That is small to one concern
which is large to another. A bank with
$1,000,000 of resources, of which $100,000
was surplus, could meet a loss of 510,000
without thought of injury to its credit. But
less than what $10,000 is to such a bank,
$484,000 is to a company with $57,500,000 of
resources, and with $5,565,080 surplus re
maining alter the loss. It will not affect the
The conditions which, apart from our en
tire confidence in the man, made this loss
and its concealment possible, were peculiar
to the times in Indianapolis following the
financial depression of the last decade, and
the methods by which it was effected were
skillfully franied'outof those conditions. No
such condition exists elsewhere, nor has
since that period. It is probably needless
to say that whatever lessons as to methods
there are in this matter trill be properly ap
During the year we have sold, in order to
eave the premiums, and have paid off bonds
that had cost us 5442,287 CO. We have pur
chased bonds costing 51,132,040 25, making
our -holding at cost on January 1, 18S9, $9,
840,575 34. The excellent character of these
bonds will appear from an inspection of the
HEAL ESTATE I.OANS.
"We have loaned during the rear upon
real estate security 55,794,170 46, loans have
been paid off to the dmount of 57,008,385 90,
leaving the amount so invested $31,630,
448 CO. Concerning these we can only say
that they are made with constantly increas
ing care in only those localities where values
are of the most permanent character.
STANDING OP THE COMPANY.
The company had in force December 31,
1888, 63,660 policies, insuring 5151,361,913.
Its assets on that day were 557,460,649 20;
its liabilities by the highest lezal standard
of solvency were 551,895,569 61, leaving a
clear surplus of 55,565,079 59. Our own
standard of reserve on business written since
April, 1882, is higher than any legal stand
ard or that of any other companv, and re
quires ns to carry an additional reserve of
5350,370. leaving the surplus by our own
standard of 55,214,709 59.
Tne premiums and reserves of the com
pany arc grounded upon the most conserva
tive bases which have been approved by ex
perience again and again; its contracts are
of the simplest, most legitimate character,
devoid of speculative fcamres; its business
Is selected with great care; its economy of
management is unrivaled; in actual cost of
insurance iurnished its record is believed to
be at least unsurpassed; its growth is
wholly healthful, being worth. more than it
costs to those already insured; its assets are
not to beexcelled tor solidity and product
iveness; us snrpius is ample to provide lor
everx adverse contingency.

EAISIKG BABIES IN A BOX.
Infantile Life Preserved bv Mechanical
Means A Xovel Incubator.
Philadelphia, February 22. Raising
babies of premature birth by tho aid of a me
chanical Incubator is the latest freak of med
ical science at the Woman's Hospital, North
College avenue and Twenty-second street 'For
tho first time in this city this process was put to
a practical test ten dajs ago, when Florence
Ryall, an 8-months' child, was wrapped in
swaddling clothes and placed in the incubator.
Tho experiment has proved so satisfactory that
herealter the incubator process will probably
be a fixture In all w ell-regulated hospitals of
this citv. The present baby initiate is thriving
under the process, and apparently cnjoyn" the
best of health.
Tho baby girl weighed at the time of her
birth about three pounds, or halt the weight of
an average new-born chili The incubator
has raised the baby's weisrht np to five pounds
within ten days. Little Florence rests m the
incubator nearly all of the time, except when
she is taken out to receive nourishment or is
given a sponge bath. The former operation
occurs three times a day and the latter twice.
The incubator used is one of a lot of four
whicn arrived iu this country from Paris about
two weeks ago. Each couveuse, as tho affair is
called, cost S20, and 2 feet long, feet deep
and 1 foot in breadth. It is made" of walnut
with a glass lid on top, w liich is removed to put
the child in the box. Just be ond the glass lid.
which covers over half of the top of the box, is
a chimney in which is placed an air indicator to
determine whether there is a healthlul amount
of oxygen stirring within the little prison.
Air is admitted in at one end of the incubator
through a brass register, and passes beneath
tho couch on which the babe liis the
through two dampened sponges, the purpose
of which is to give to the air a certain amount
Beneath tho conch are four cubical shaped
bottles containing boiling water, winch heat
the air passing in through the register. For
an S-months baby the temperature is
kept at 95, while it is fixed at 105 to 1!5 for a
7-months baby, and still higher for more
premature infants. The incubator contains
tno thermometers, one centngrado and the
other Fahrenheit. The couch is a unique
affair of walnut with a diminutive cotton mat
tress and blankets and a lilhputian pillow.
The length of time required to keep pre
maturely born babies in these Incubators to
insure complete safety to their lives varies
from three to six weeks, and depends consid
erably on the constitution of the little one.
Dr. Laura Chapin, a resident physician of
the Woman's Hospital, stated yesterday that
the incubator would meet a long existing
need and crove a life-giving machine to many
prematurely born babies, whouwould die but
for the happy and very ingenlouflnvention.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DtSFATCB.l
CnAULESTOif, W. Va., February 22.
Judge Guthrie this afternoon rendered a
decision in the case of Alderson versus the
County Commissioners of Kanawha. His
decision was to the effect that the County
Court in reaching.a decision had erred in
refusing to allow Alderson's counsel the
right to cross-examine witnesses and to in
troduce witnesses in rebuttal. Accordingly
the matter was remanded back to the county
court de novo.
It is said that Governor "Wilson contem
plates ignoring the certificate qf the vote of
Kanawha county and issuing the certificate
ot election to Alderson. McGinness has se
cured certified copies of the returns from
the various counties and will claim his seat
in Congress on them, notwithstanding Al
derson's certificate, if he gets it.
In the Gubernatorial matter affairs have
taken a new turn. Governor Wilson claims
that under the Oonstitutionjhe has a right to
hold tho'office until the Flemiug-Goff con
test U settled. Goff, and possibly Carr, will
qualify on March 4,the former having made
that statement to Governor "Wilson. The
Supreme Court will be called upon to de
cide who is entitled to the seat pending the
contest, and if the decision is in favor of
either Goff or Carr, Governor Wilson will
submit gracefully. There is an understand
ing between Goff and Wilson to this effect,
and thus stories of bloodshed and anarchy
on the 4th of March have ended in smoke.
The regular session of the Legislature
olosed to-night and a number of the mem
bers have already returned home. The Re
publicans still feel very sore ever the elec
tion of Senator ICenna, particularly from
the fact that a proposition was made to them
the day previous by Harr? the Union Labor
member, whose vote decided the contest,
that if they would withdraw Goff and vote
for Colonel McLean, of Putnam county,
that he would vote with them. This they
declined to do, and the result was Kenna's
election on the following day.
