The case against
THB PLANTBRfl INSURANCE COMPANY,
of Memphip, was also interesting, and
involves a loss to the company, due to
a negligent nnsstatemmt of an agent.
It appears that in March, 1881, the
compan v received a letter from Jordan,
Lovett & Co., Bofton inturance brok
ers, that read as follows: "Gentlemen
We would like VOUr oolic.v fnr anv
part of $2500 at 3 per cent, on the
i.arkin House, at Palalka. Fin. It.
stands detached 100 feet from anything
except a Congregational Chumh."
Believing it a good liBk, the policy
was signed. Half the town was snh.
eeqnently destroyed by fire, including
uie numi. ii men Dtcame known to
the company that some months
prior to the issuance of the polxy a
wirg had been added to the hntl.
which shortened the distance between
it and other bnildiogs. The company,
regarding this as artful decep.ion,
n-fusea lo pav the Dollcv. Thn nrnof
Bhowed that the broker who secured
the policy was ignorant of the change
in the buildings, and that such
change did not materially add to the
risk. The Court. Judsa JaekHon. in-
s ructed the jury that they muet find
for the plaintiff unless the broker's
statement as to dis'ance from other
building" was n willful misrepresenta

gave Judgment for plaintiff in the sum
of $2u00and oos-8.
