Regarding Life Insurance

Owing to a report that certain life insurance companies are discussing, the advisability of discriminating against Christian Scientists, the Chicago Daily News recently interviewed the local insurance men as to their personal views on the question. We make the following extracts from the published report of the investigation.

J. W. Jackson, general manager of the Home Life Insurance Company, said:—

"This company has taken no step in regard to the question. We proceed on the theory that self-preservation is the first and most powerful law of nature, and we believe that if a man has the sense to get his life insured he certainly has enough sense to take care of his life. It is a self-evident proposition that people generally have such an interest in their own lives as will induce them to adopt the most effective measures for their own preservation, and I think the life insurance business may be safely conducted on that theory."
