cause of such opinion he will a k

shal law so that causes of all fires
may be investigated and reported
to the insurance department. De-

In reality the meaaure was adop-

line ot travel of the pulmonary
unfortunates from the humid
atates alongside of the Mississ-
ippi, and haa, say ite friends the
traveling men, many good feat-
ures, but the hotel men do not
like the intricate parts and will
ask them modified.
The railroad also ask the right
to have independent contractors
build their branches throughout
the stst3, and ask a vots to
change the constitution on that
line. Said a railroad builder and
prominent Oklahoma business
man or. this topic:
"The older roads always have
their extensions built by inds-
pendent oompanies, who, after
the line is oompleted, sell it to
the other company. Tnis is the
way almost all new construction
is secured. Under the present
terms of the new constitution this
procedure is impossible and the
hea s of several of the leading
railroad oompanies operating in
Oklahoma have stated that there
will be nothing doing toward new
construction in Oklahoma until
this feature of the constitution is

The six mutual fire and hail in-

will ask for legislation permitting
mutual oompanies to maintain a
reserve fund, the lossee in some
years exceed the premiums col-

sometimes unable to pay the full
amount of their losses.
Ths insuranoe men over the
state will demand the enaotment
of a just and equitable general
insurance law. Ths law whioh
was oonsidersd by ths legislature
last year was unsatisfactory and
was killed after it had been con-
sidered for weeks by both houses.
There is again muoh talk in the
