Purpose of the Organization to
Secure Reduction of
Frm an Iowa town conies a tale of
woe concerning the operations then
of what is or was known as the Prop
erty Owners' Protective association
managed, it is claimed, from this
city. The complaint is that, this as
sociation secured a large membership
with the purpose of mutual cooper
ation in reducing the rates of old line
insurance companies and then failed
in its purpose. The plan was
legitimate enough, it appears, the
rates fixed being according to the risk
carried. Now it is said that
nothing was heard frem tbeorgani
zation until recently, when the par
ties were waited upon with the infor
mation that there were some dues
coming. At this, it is saia, the busi
ness men took occasion to sever their
connection with the association.
Id Kcreral States.
It appears that the association rep
resentative canvassed the principal
towns in the states of Minne
sota, Nebraska, Iowa. Kansas and
Illinois in the interest of the as
sociation and interested a large num
ber of business men. Subsequently
he went to the members soliciting in
surance, offering policies with what
is called a building clause attached
at a reduction of 20 per cent from old
line rates. He did a large amount of
business, but when he went to the
insurance companies to place the
risks he encountered unexpected difli
culties. The large companies were
shy and he succeeded in placing only
a small portion of what he had so
licited. Thus the first attempt to re
ceive better rates failed. Who is
seeking to revive the association and
for what purpose is not known.
