Satur- day Night put a bomb under it In the shape of a little truth telling respect- ing the Spence methods of operation. and up It went by order of the Federal an the public utilities act of this I insurance Department. Next Spence province there is a-clause which reads. I appeared "It shall hereafter be unlawful for njon old l sa Tw-- any or persons, company; agent or any person acting on his, their or Its behalf, to sell or offer to sell, or to directly'or indirectly attecapt to sell in the province oE Alberta any shares, stocksvi bonds or other securities or thy corporation or company, syndicate or association of in- unincorporated, without first obtain- ing from board of public utilities com- 0 ,-_--- 1 :i and started again.

In tHis connection, we are compelled in the public interest to draw attention to a recent article in the Toronto Sat- urday Night, which we think is worthy of the.immediate attention of the Pub- lic Utilities Board of Alberta. If the Saturday Night charges are true, the people .of Alberta should be advised by the Board, and .if not, then the fact should be made known: Through the medium of a Calgary law court the later activities of J. M. Central Life, Guardian Life', International Life, and latterly of the Albertal.Life and Accident, are once more before the public. Some time since J. M. Speiice brought'suit in .jCalgary against one occupation was that of stock seller for Spence's Imitation in- surance; company, the Alberta Life and Atciderii. Spence charged Bresler with stealing a promissory note for but after a Police Court trial the lat- ter wasracquitted. However, this fact is'- neither here nor there. It is the evidence brought out during the trial that is of paramount interest, and goes to once more prove Saturday Night's often repeated contention that .J.. M. "is ROW as dangerous a factor in the1 insurance world of Alberta as the old days in Ontario be- fore; Saturday Night dug him out. As fraS often been charged in this journal) -Spence is not so much inter- ested in selling insurance. His spec- ialty, a's in the flays of the defunct Gentrar'Life and Canadian Guardian Life, is'selling stock. In the examin- ation of'Spence and others at the Cal- gary trial, it developed that there was an arrangement between Spence, as managing director of the Alberta Life and Bresler. whereby the latter as stock seller 'for Spence sold the .stuff at per share (par value the commission being fifty per cent. In oilier words, for every worth ol stock sbld by Bresler, Spence put ?500 down in hiS'jeans, and tfie stock seller took the other half. How much the company gets out of Spence's half re mains to be seen. However, enough information slipped out, or rather, was dug by Mr. Arthur L. Smith, of the legal firm of Clarke, Smith, AI- bright Shouldice, of Calgary, to al- low us to see that Spence was "ehtly generous, in some cases to. split fifty-fifty, with the treasury pi the Alberta Life and Accident. From the first day of January up to the time of the trial in the middle of August, .Bresler sold under his agree- ment sufficient stock to net the pair of then! in cash, and under the divvy agreement this money was dis- tributed something as follows: Bres- ler, Spence for himself, and the; company, which goodliest knows needs the money badly enough, got what was left; in .other words, nbout Spence's ideas on insur- ance agweVto'V sr great extent-with to us "that the Utilities Board should investigate this company without delay. The charges are too serious to be overlooked. Whether hev are or not only an inquiry can establish. Every member of the Calgary Paint- ers' Union has enlisted, which prompts rbe Edmonton Bulletin ro remark: 'Anxious to help put on the finishing touches, no doubt."
