LESSONS OF THE FIRE.
After the last previous great fire
to that which occurred on Sunday
morning we took the occasion to ad
vocate the extension of the fireproof
district. This last conllagration
emphasizes tho advice then tendered.
Perhaps it would be impracticable
to enforce regulations as strict as
those governing the present limited
lire district outside of its bounds.
Yet there should be some restric
tions placed upon wooden buildings
and inflammable connections be
tween them, and the distances be
tween different ones should be regu
lated by law. Brick maj' be much
more expensive than wood, for the
first cost, but its greater durability
and immunity from fire constitute it
the cheaper material in the long run.
The saving on a brick structure in
the matter of insurance rales alone
will make a material consideration
in its favor over wood. So many
great fires in the wooden parts of
this city will be apt to make insur
ance companies very shy about
taking risks at any rales in those
districts. Kvon if they can get the
owners of wooden buildings to give
them such rates as they can find it
safe to insure for, insurance will be
come, with a lew recurrences of
such fires as that of Sunday last, one
of the most onerous species of taxa
tion that burden the city. It is a
great popular mistake to suppose
that properly that is insured is not
lost when swept away bj' fire.
Kvcry premium a property-owner
pays upon a fire policy goes partly
to pay losses by fire upon other
people's property, whose money in
turn pays for any loss ho majf sus
tain by lire up to the amount of his
policy. Upon this point we quote
I W. Ballard in an insurance
"Every dollar's worth of properly
burned is so much property abso
lutely annihilated beyond rehabilita
tion. Even the money paid as in
demnity bj' insurance companies
comes out of tho unburned policy
holder, and is his contribution to
wards making things even but not
towards creating any new property.
The old property is utterly ruined
and wiped off from the face of the
earth, never to be restored. It be
comes ashes pure and simple, and
the insurance capital (or other peo
ple's premiums) is merely handed
over to the loser' under a law of
average and distribution which
makes every property owner who
insures a contributor towards evad
ing general ruin and panic."
As insurance companies regulate
rates in particular places according
to the degree of prevention and pro
tection afforded against fire, the
safer a town is made by building
regulations, fire-extinguishing equip
ments, and so on, the less will its
insurance taxation be. That bur
den is a very heavy one in Honolulu,
and, as it is an important considei
ation in every business of any size,
the whole community bears the
burden. This question of regulating
the erection of inflammable build
ings is one that cannot much longer
