Stable Fire Insur
HAVTNG had many inquiries the past few days as to the stability of
the fire insurance companies represented by me in Rock Island,
I take this means of reassuring my patrons that their policies are
positively "good." Below I quote the financial standing of all the
companies in my office, who were losers in the San Francisco confla
gration, and you will notice that every American company has a great
er surplus than is required to pay their respective losses, and I have
private advises that all the foreign companies will send funds for their
entire losses direct from their home offices, thereby leaving intact the
capital, assets and surplus in the United States.
That was the method pursued in all past great conflagrations by
these wealthy companies.
But wereany one or more of the companies In my office forced to
surrender, I will consider it my duty to at once write my clients'
policy in another company for the unexpired term at my expense. It
would be well that the insuring public Investigate the standing of the
companies who are carrying their risks and if they are weak, place
their Insurance with an. agent who only represents the best companies
In the business, as the best costs no more than the inferior and you
then have positive protection.
David Donaldson received a telegram
last evening from Glaster, Miss., bring
ing the information that his saw mill
and planing mill and south yard were
destroyed by fire yesterday afternoon.
No information has yet been received
as to the details of the destruction.
The property was covered with insur
ance, but this business is attended tol
at the offices there and Mr. Donaldson
is not fully informed as to that.
Son la In f'barice.
The message was received from his
son, D. H. Donaldson, who is in charge
of the plant. The .two mills are valued
at about $35,000, but no estimate can
be placed upon the loss in the yards on
account of the extent of the fire being
unknown. However, if the fire was
confined to the south end, there is a
large portion that escaped the fire.

once Young & McCombs can .please i
