SOUTHERN POWER GO
WILL BE AFFECTED
BY THE PRESENT INSURANCE
SITUATION IN SOUTH
NOT EXPIRING NOW
In Many Instances Policies on the
Piedmont & Northern Ex
pire Next Year.
Tho following from Tho ('lui riot lc
Observer very Interestlnelv tells o?
how the present fire insurance situa
tion In tills state is effecting trie South
ern Power company:
The insurance problem in South
Carolin! commies to be the topic
of keenest interest and concern, not
only among the insurance men of
Charlotte and ol tilts state Lat
among the Insured as well who live
in North Carolina but who have
lorge property holdings in that state.
Such ls tho case with tho South
ern Power company with its $1,000,
000 plants at Oreut Falls. Catawba.
Hocky Creek. Ninetyy Nine Islands
and smaller establishments ranging
into tlie hundreds of thousands at
Itoek Hill, Greenville, Anderson,
Sparlanburg and Oreen wood. All ol
these plants are bonded and in the
major..y of casen--indeed, If not lu
all cases-lt Is a condition of the
security for the bonds that the plants
?hall maintain a certain minimum
amount of Insurance to be carried
in selected compunles and lt 1B fur
thermore a stipulation that should
this amount of insurance, for any
cause whatsoever, fall below the min
imum eatabllshed, that the holders
of the bonds may demand Instant
payment on them.
Tho seriousness of the situation
may, therefore, be appreciated.
Fortunately for the Southern Pow
er company the insurance for the
most part does not expire for some
time yet but unless some relief ia
obtained prior to the expiration of
tho policies there will be a mov.
complicated and embarrassing condi
tion resulting. The company wants
the insurance and the insurance com
panies want the business, but ac
cording to present conditions, this
cannot be obtained. Practically ali
of tho big companies have left South
Catalina nnd they aiy that they are
not going to return until the pres
ent law ls1 repealed. If the law ls
not repealed and if the companies 0?
not return, then when the policies
oiy the big risks begin to mature, it
'goes without the saying that there
win hie quite a commotion.
. The Piedmont and Northern F>ail
wiy. which ls an affiliated corpora
tism with the Southern Power com
pany, operates approximately 100
Adios of Interurban railroad in South
.Carolina, Tunning .from Greenwood
un tho south to. Spartanburg on the
ino rt h. lt carries policies covering
eVvery mlle of track all the roll'ng
Bt? tck,-etc., and according to th*
lerhTw.of the mortgagee an.? salts ot
bonds, this amount must be carried
lt is not voluntary with the company
but 'B .absolutely obligatory. In fha
preseni'.; instance, fortunately the
Piedmont and Northern railway pol
icies'dol not expire until the first of
Tho aapjfi condition is true not only
of the Sr.ui.hern Power and an?llate,
Interest but of other big corpora
tions aa W0?, For Instance, the
Highland ?Park ( Manufacturing com
pany of thia cMy operates a big cot
ton mill'at liack Hill. The pollclet
