Have You a Policy In the
of Seattle, Wash,?
Underwriters' Itcport of February 4. 19IG.
Tho California stntc Inturnnco de
partment has refused to Issue a li
cense to the Northwestern Mutual
Fire association of Seattle, holding
thnt tho company has deceived
property owners by falsely claiming
thnt the policies It isrues lire non
asscriablc. Tho California depart
ment also charges that tho mutual'
reserves ure Insufficient nnd that It
has failed to observe the- California
requirement to print Its bylaws In
tho policy. The department has had
the matter under tnxestlgntlon for
six months, tho license under which
tho company formerly operated hav
ing expired Juno 30th of last year.
Ilarrttl From 1'lnli Aloo.
The charges mado by the Cullfor
nlu department lire similar to those
made against tho Northwestern Mu
tual by tho Utah Insurance depart
ment lust year, which nlso refused
to issue thu company n license. The
I'tnh department also charged tho
company with making n false state
ment nt Its financial condition, pad
ding Its assets with worthless se
curities After being denied a li
cense for ii number of months, tha
mutual wns rollcensed by I'tnh on it
showing thnt tho company wnj sol

partment which It is stated has re
fused to license the company since
July 1st of Inst year Strenuous ef
forts hnvo been mndo ny tho mutual
company officers to aecuro the de
sired nuthorlty. but Commissioner
Phelps has Insisted thnt tho com
pany's practices nro Incompatible
with sound Insurnnco principles, bo
sides being contrary to tho Califor
nia laws, Phelps has expressed a
willingness to hnvo tho company re
fer tho question to tho courts, but
thus far tho mutual hns not acted
on tho suggestion.
Fond of Tccliiilriilltli-N.
Whllo tho legal nuthorlty to op
erate In California has been denied
the Northwestern Mutual since July
last, tho company has continued to
write policies and tho question Is
now raised that such policies might
provo vuluoless In the event or tho
company refusing to pay when a
lots ensues. Under See. 580 ot tho
political code, "All policies nnd
othor contract of Insurance Istued
without full compliance by nil par
ties concerned with tho laws of this
stato shall bo null and void."
Insurance men might point out
that an unscrupulous company
might easily ralso this point should
It desire to evade tho payment of
a loss. In this connection It may
bo recalled that several years no
the Northwestern Mutual, which
was then active In California as an
policyholders, thus effecting a sav
ing to proporty owners. Ineurnnco
men who havo examined Its plans,
however, stato that tho alleged
aavlng Is obtained by loading tho
premium -with tho sum tho company
subsequently roturns wjth a flour
ish, as a socalled dividend. Bxports
who have studied tho question hold
that a comparlbjn of tho results of
tho Northwestern Mutual policies
with thoo ot the regular compnnles
ahow that tho mutual policyholder'
net coBt Is often actually in excess
of the chnrges maiio by the regular
Hniip For Mutual OMenx.
An oxhaustlvo examination of tho
company sovoral years ago by tho
Utah Insurnnco department showed
ithat Its socalled dividend feature
was arranged to Influence prospec-
, t vo Insurers, being manipulate oy
tho compuny's officers who wero In
' receipt of extravagant compensation
for managing its affairs, it was
Jhown that tho principal officer
nad a half dozon sources of er
onal rovonuo through his connec
tion with tho company and thnt tho
company appoared to be mutual in
name only. Since tho Utnh report
other Insurance departments havo
criticised tho practice ot tho com
pany's oUlcora In drawing largo
