Political parties, financial institutions, even the government of the
United States, will scarcely venture to oppose his will.
The Equitable is one of the three large insurance companies of
America, known as the Big Three, whose hoarded assets of one and
a half billion dollars, wrung from the pockets of the sleeping people
dominate the finances and policies of the government and threaten to
destroy the temple of liberty and revel in its ruins.
Tens of thousands of insurance agents representing three hun-
dred insurance companies within the confines of our free republic strip
the country of its substance as closely as the swarms of locusts in an-
cient Egypt stripped leaf and twig and bough.
The people pay more than twice as much money to insurance,
companies as they ever get back and the annual balance against the pro-
ducers of wealth aggregates hundreds of millions of dollars.
The people jay the salaries of thousands of insurance officers, many
of theni being larger than the President of the United States, and bear
all the expenses of all the companies, including the most outrageous1
and illegitimate expenditures ranging from the $100,000 French balls
to the purchase of legislatures and the subsidy of the public press.
How shall the people answer? Shall they continue to sleep whiles
"thieves break through and steal" the little they have left?
Senator I-a Kollette's state—Wisconsin—provides strict regulation
of her life insurance companies, which protects her people from graft
and has in addition inaugurated State Insurance at actual cost of oper-
ation, which is proving eminently satisfactory.
A little more than a year ago the Farmers' Union of Oklahoma
passed by a unanimous vote, a resolution indorsing State Insurance and
urged its establishment in the state as the best means to prevent the an-
nual insurance drain of millions of dollars from the state.
( These are hut steps in the right direction, but one step does not
mean progress unless followed by other steps in the same direction.

Darwin never for a moment con-
cedes that there may be another point
in view equally right with his own.
His requests to his wife are really
commands. She is well provided for, |
but provided for as he dictates; her
friends, her occupations, must be of
his choosing; his interests must be
hers, no matter what old time associa-
tions and friendships hold her back.

Our opposition and the opposition of thousands of the most de-
vout Christian men and women of America as now conducted is based
upon our sympathy for the suffering poor <4 our own country. More
should be spent on our own destitute, less upon the heathen.
In America where two-thirds of the people never go to church,
where the bar-room, the blind tiger, the gambling hall and other dens
of iniquity are dragging hundreds and thousands of our boys and girls
to lives of vice and crime, where a million little children are being
ground up into dividends for avaricious corporations, where the white
slave traffic earns for its fiendish dealers from thrty to one hundred
millions of dollars per year, where ignorance and irreligion are waving
their black banners and threatening the future of our country, there is
need for every dollar we can spare for the orphans and the widows
