Home Insurance Company
. Doing Good Business.
THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 9U
Nearly all the newspapers in the
Islands have had a good word to
say for the Home Insurance Co., of
Hawaii, Ltd. One of the most
comprehensive write-upB that has
appeared was in the Star of January
11th. From this article, and from
an interview with the local agent,
the following information is obtain
- 1 I! rt i . ...
eu. ruouc connuence in tins new
organization is forcibly expressed in
the magnificent business which the
company is obtaining. ' During the
first five months of its operation,
the Home Insurance Company has
written policies aggregating in
round numbers $500,000, on which
premiums have been paid aggre
gating $9,000. The capital of the
company being comparatively
Bmall, re-insurance contracts have
been made with six of the large
companies of the Mainland, and
general agency contracts with three
large companies. This enables the
Home to write large lines of insur
ance without assuming undue pro
portion of the risks. Among the
larger policies written for represent
ative citizens of Hawaii, afe one of
$36,500; three of $20,000 each; one
of $15,3'J7 50; one of $13,400; one
of $12,000; four of $9,000 each;
one of $7,000; two of $6,000 each,
and a number of $5000 policies.
Among the business connections of
the Home might be mentioned the
Equitable Surety Co. of St. Louis,
the New Amsterdam Casualty Co.
The British America Assurance of
Toronto, and the Ixs Angeles Fire
Insurance Co. which with other
agencies, provide the Home com
pany with protection aggregating
fifty million dollars. The company
contemplates increasing its capital
stock in the near future, in which
case the new shares will command a
premium of $10 per share, at which
price there seems to be a strong de
mand in the Islands. Should the
company at its annual meeting de
cide" to issue new shares, a limited
number will be reserved for citizens
of Maui, who can apply for same to
the local agent, Mr. C. D. Lufkiu.
We are pleased to encourage this
local insurance company, and feel
sure that the business men of the
Islands will rush to its support, and
thereby retain for investment at
home, a considerable portion of the
large amount of insurance pre
miums, that have been going to the
Mainland. The officers of the Com
pany are: Cecil Brown, president;
J. A. McCandless, vice-president;
Norman Watkins, secretary; Z. K.
Myers, treasurer and manager; F.
D. Lowrey, auditor. Among the
stockholders of the company are
some of the most representative
men of Honolulu and the Islands.
The slogan of the new company is
PATRONIZE HOME INDUSTRY,
and the News heartily agrees with
the sentiment. -
