off tho leading politicians und Journals ofBrcok

tions of the two cities are so intimate and
the distance between them so small that
it is argued that one city government
will do for them both. Many of the busi?
ness men of New York resido in Brooklyn ;
thus the social and commercial relations of the
two cities are to all intents and purposes Identi?
cal. Whether ihe citizens of Brooklyn will be

bitterost opponents or the change will be the
Brooklyn city officials, who will lose sundry fat
ofllces and not get ethers equally good in the new
consolidated city government of New York.
The Cat in thc Bical Tub.
According to the report of t ho Comptroller
Genera], a copy of which we received last
evening, the State or South Carolina has,
during the past year, been a good customer
to the usurers of Wall Street, What pre?
cise price has been paid for the monoy which
has been borrowed, cannot be known just
yet by the Anti-Radical public, aa the report
of H. H. Klmpton, referred to by tbe Comp?
troller-General, d03s not accompany thc
printed report of the last named official.
There is, however, a gleam of light.
The report of the Treasurer shows that
the State has received from H. II. Kimpton,
during tho financial year, $1,412,714, and
has paid that promising Unan Mor S54S.81S,
leaving a balance in his favor o? S593.8G6.
This large amount was not, it ia presumed,
advanced by H. H. Kimpton without securi?
ty, whatever his love for what Governor Scott
calls "our beloved State." What amount of
State bonds baa been soltl we do not know,
but thc Comptroller-General says there are
"two million seven hundred thousand dollars
"($2,700,000) of bonds, signed up and placed
"in the hands of the Financial Agent, and rc
"maining unsold." Thc Comptroller also
says that a aile of "three hundred thousand
"dollars of bonds" made by tho Financial
Agent will not appear in tbe reporta of the
Comptroller's office, no report of the salo
being received until after the close of thc
During the fiscal year the Financial Ageut
borrowed for the State, or realized by the
sale of State bonds, nearly ons and a half
million dollars, of which ubout nine hun?
dred thousand dollars was paid back. The
money waa doubtless obtained with mach
difficulty, and the rate of interest was iu
proportion. Mr. Neagle, the Comptroller
General, says that unsold bonds amounting
to two million seven hundred thovsind dol?
lars are still in tho hands of the Financi?i
Agent They aro not sold; but arc they
pledged as collaterals: Mr. Land Commis?
sion Leslie answered this question in tho
Senate on Saturday, where he urged the
immediate passage of thc Insurance Com
p taits' bill, on tho ground that about Ihre.
milUon dollars of Slate bonds were held a3
collaterals in New York i\i sixty i*e cents on
the dollar. Ii tho Wall strc nen took
South Carolina Radical honda av' ffialerab
at sisty-flve, they havo less sense thaa they aro
usually given credit for; but tho plain fact ia
in any ca8e before us that three million (lol?
lara of State bonds are pledged in New York,
and will bo sacrificed, unleaa Scott, Kimp?
ton & Co. can, by soino iugenious tricking,
run up their market price. What the Bing
are driving at now, ia to create a demand
for State securities by compelling insurance
companies to deposit State honda or otocks
03 pledges of good faith and solvency.
This ia the cat in the meal tub.
Fighting with Fire.
In that curious compound of malice and
ignorance, tumid eloquence and ingenious
misrepresentation, called for convenience
"the Governor's message," it ia recommen?
ded that "a law bo passed'' requiring each
company ejecting insurance in thia State
"to deposit sufficient security with
"tho Comptroller-General, indemnifying
"po'icy-krdders against losses." and that
this deposit "be graduated in prrportion to
*t ic capital and business of the company,
"making it a misdemeanor, with adequate
"punishment-, of every agent attempting to
"effect inaurance until thc company he rep?
r?senta baa m adc deposit of ample securi
"tios io protect policy-hol'lcrs agiinstfraud
"or attempted frauds." Tlic object o? the
bill now before the Legislature is, therefore,
the protection of policy-holders against
fraud and their indemniilc.ttioa against
losses, which protection and indemnification
arc to be obtained by a regulation that each
life insurance company, or agent, doing
busiuess ia the State shall deposit with the
Comptroller-General $50,000 in State stocka
or bonds, and each fire insurance company,
or agent, s!ia!l deposit in like mauner
$20,0J0. For Hie present wo coutlnc our
remark3 to fire insurauce, and tho first ques?
tion which suggests itself is: How will this
deposit give to the policy-holders the secu?
rity and indemnification which Governor
Scott, the General Assembly, and THE
CHABLBSTON NBV.S believe to be exceedingly
There arc at Ulla time about forty-fivo in?
surance companies represented by agents in
Charleston ; among them are the most respon?
sible Northern and British companies, but
there ia not ono home company now in ope?
ration. Tho risks of the different compa?
nies vary in amount, bat tho aggregate iii in
thc neighborhood of. IG Od ).o;.0 or 312,000,
OO . This lo tho amouut for which-tho com?
panies' are li ?.blt?. T;;c amount of deposit
to be made by t;?e forty companies-assum?
ing that ali of them would make the da
po3it-would bo $500,000 in Stale bonds or
stocks at par, worth in the market now about
$540,000. Thia certainly is far from ' tuffi
"cient security" to protect policies to thc
amount of ten or twelve milliou dollars.
Aa a meana of securing and indemnifying
the insured against loss und fraud, tho new
law would be of little value, even supposing
that the companies were all of thom ready
and willing to make the required deposit.
Many of thc firfe companies represented in
Charleston do a very 6mall business. They
cannot afford to allow $20,000 to lie idle,
and wi.l rather withdraw their agencies than
do wliat thc law requires. This would tend
to leavo tho risks to bo monopolized by Ihe
larger companies, and in itself niiglit not
bi disadvantageous. But it is doubtful
whether tho giant companies will consent to
make the deposit. When a similar law went
into operation in Virginia some of tho most
important and trustworthy Northorn com?
panies at once closed their agencies Tho
sanio cll'cct has been produced n Canada by
restrictive legislation. And, If wo uro cor
recUy informed, no New York Insurant
Company is allowed to make investments on
side of New York State, eo that the new la
would cut off the insurers at once from tl
i New York companies. Insurance bnsinei
in Charleston has not been very profitable
Leading companies have paid ont more thu
they have received in premiums, and an a<
ditional tax,' in tho nature of a deposit i
bonds and stocks, might tempt them I
withdraw from the Held altogether. Anotl
er consideration ia the security of tho con
punies themselves. What guarantee ha\
they that the bonds and stocks which the
deposit will not be tampered with ? Ia thei
anything in the history or character of tl
State officials, which should make any or
who knows them willing to entrust to the
tender mercies $800,000 tn bonds or stocl
of the State?
A calm consideration of the whole subjci
leads us .td the conclusion that the passai
of the proposed bill would work great ir
jury to the insuring class. It would undt
no circumstances give the assurer any su
flcieut security; it would cause a large nun
ber of companies to decline taking risks i
this State; it. would give a monopoly to Hi
companies which remained, forcing insurei
to do business with them or directly wit
Northern and foreign companies; it woulc
os a restriction on. trade, drive capital awa
and make tho cares of real estate owner
and merchants even more harassing Um
thoy now arc. And 3'et it would accomplis
one grand result. The passage of tho bill
with the prospect of t he bona fide purchas
of half a million of bonds or slocks-for th
Aro companies only-would send np th
price ten or fifteen per cent., and Scott an
tho Radical Ring could realize still anodic
fortune. The proiits on bank bills woul<
be supplemented by the profils on Stat
bonds, which in time would be hugely swol
len by the three hundred thousand dollar
in gold expected to be mado ont of thc schem
for paying in gold the principal of tho Stat
debt due next year and thc next. This in
surance bill is only an act in th3 drama o
"Peculate, Pillage and Plunder," and if afte
its passage tho insurance companies are cal
citrant and will not deposit thc bonds 0
stocks required, the law can bo easily ant
quickly repealed. But the Ring, in tin
meanwhile, will have sold out their bond
and stocks at tho very top of thc market.
