THE ARGUS, THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 1000:
Stable Fire lestmr
HAVING 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 were any 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.

Under the law of New York and similar laws in other states, all
foreign compares are prohibited from publishing in the United States
In any form whatever their assets other than those held in the United
States, but I can safely say that the foreign companies that I repre
sent have assets which exceed by far $100,000,00$, almost enough to
pay the entire San Francisco losses.

Guard Flag All Night. All night
long there was a large crowd of under
graduates around the high school mak
ing attempts to get possession of the

made to shoot the flag down, but the

holes in it. About 5 o'clock in the
morning the seniors who were suppos
ed to guard the flag went to sleep and
five members of the lower classes
climbed up the fire escape and went
over the roof and cut the flag down off
the tower, but each time the flag caught
and the awakened seniors climbed into
the tower just in time to save it.
