Important Baling in Insurance Fees.
Columbia, Special.-Commissioner |
McMaster has received a ruling on
the insurance laws from the attor
ney general which will have an im
mediate effect upon'all South Caro
lina companies doing a general State
. business before the acts passed at the
last session of the general assembly.
The particular act ruled upon is the
one requiring South Carolina com
panies doing business in more than
two adjoining counties to deposit a
bond of $10,000 or securities to that
amount. - A diff?rence bf opinion
arose between the insurance commis
sioner and one or two companies
which had done a general State busi
ness, but which did not deposit the j
bond, and took a license for only two
?counties, as to the time when they
should terminate their business in
other counties than those for which
they took license. The attorney gen-J
eral holds that under section 2, arti
cle 9, of the constitution, and under)
section 1S42 of the code, which gives;
the general assembly power to alter,
?mend or repeal the charter of an}'
corporation created und?r the laws of j
this State, that the act requiring the
deposit of the bond or securities foe
doing business in more than two ad- f
joining counties, operated as an
amendment to the charters of all
such companies and they must all
(cease to do business in counties other |
?than those for which they have taken
.license. The insurance commissioner,
.therfore, will take steps to see to it.
that all South Carolina companies
having insurance outside the counties
for which they have taken license
shall bring this business to an early

many of them sang ol? camp songs
as they marched, such as?''Butter

There were .many in thte parada

Blames "Brain Fag" Foy
Many Railroad Accidents.
Boston.-President Tuttle, of the
Boston & Maine Railroad, declares
that the many railroad accidents are

thinks that this mysterious obsession,
which, he says, makes the most com
