Mr. Maloney stated that the efforts
of fire insurance companies have been
more to prevent than to cure. "Fire
insurance is a tax. he said. "It falls
on the consumer You and the other
people in the state are paying for the
recent losses in Columbia. For the
list three years Missouri has not been
pajicg her own losses, but has been
drawing from other states.
"The best preventive a state can
have is a fire marshal or coroner, who
holds aa kiquest over every fire, in
vestigates and prosecutes. Such an
oSce has been created in neighbor
ing states. A bill is now before the
Legislature for the same thing here."
