HOME INSURANCE COMPANY PASSES SIXTH MILESTONE OF ACHIEVEMENT Honolulu Concern in Less Than Decade Forges to the Front as Substantial and Progres sive Institution "Home indutr" hat the pulling power of sound business and striking sentiment, and that is the kind of business and sentimtn which is be hiud the Home Insurance Co. of Ha waii. Ltd., which today celebrates its sixth birthday and six years of achievement. In less th-n a decade this company has won ita way to the standing of a substantial institution among the progressive bouses of the territory. With "homegrown" agents and other staff members familiar with condi tions here and each with a large circle of friends, and with advantageous con nections abroad, the company oc cupies a uniquely strategic position to get and hold insurance in every line. Furthermore, it la a promotion as set for the territory, and its work along this line, with a promotion cn thuiast, Zeno K. Myers, treasurer and manager, gives it a wider sweep and greater effect than merely In busi ness. It is rendering community ser vice. The history of the Home Insurance Co. makes interesting reading from the fact that when the company was started some si- years ago the gen eral impression among the insurance fraternity seemed to be that a local company could not exist and some of the wisest ones predicted a complete (allure within a few months. This company has certainly con fronted many insurance problems, particularly the handicap of under writing in such a limited territory. These problems hare been solved with very large and liberal insurance treaties whereby the excess ia taken care of, the Home retaining a limited proportion consistent with their un derwriting policy. An analysis of the figures as filed with the Insurance commissioner of this territory of business for 1916 shows premiums of $52,563.13 with re-Insurance of $27,069.48. the net re tentions of the "Home" being less than one-half of the business written. Under new arrangements, however, whereby the "Home" will exchange business with other agents, a more extensive distribution of risk can be effected end the "Home" income will be largely increased. This new ar rangement is extremely gratifying to the management of the Home Insur ance Co. and will enable the company Lto carry out to the fullest the slogan or neep tne money at nome. Arrangements are now completed for writing every line of insurance, including explosion and bombardment the last additions to this company's treaties having been recently arrang ed whereby the Home Insurance Co. has protection up to $600,000. A very large part of the business of the Home Insurance Co. is the general agency of the Western States Life Insurance Co.. now recognized as the leaders of life insurance in the West. An examination of the 1917 edition of the Spectator shows 215 legal reserve life insurance companies and discloses the fact that the West ern States made a greater gain in paid-up insurance in 1916 than was made by 154 of such companies. Of the 50 companies whose gains were greater than the Western States Life during such time six owed a greater or less part of their business to their re-insuring other companies going out of business. The average age of the six companies whose gains exceeded the Western States is about 35 years against less than seven years for the Western States. Could any more convincing proof of the growth of the Western States be had than the above? This company through the Home Insurance Company .has quickly won a place at the top of the list of com I panics writing business In this terrl tory and the liberal attitude of the company as to war risks, agreeing that for the present upon written request, all present and future policyholders whose contracts contain a war clause will be given permission to engage in military, naval or allied service for the United States within the limits of continental United States for a pe riod of one year, no extra premium being charged and in the event of the Insured dying as a result, directly or indirectly, of engaging in such ser vice the company will be liable for the full face amount of the policy, and the Western States Life Insurance have r'aeed the Territory of Hawaii as part of continental United States of America. The Home Insurance Company soon outgrew quarters at the corner of Fort and King streets and now occupies POTATOES CO. Comer Alakea and Merchant Financial V j. A.

Myers, -treasurer and manager, and M. V. Ferreira, underwriter, are always ready to tackle any insurance problem passed up to them, making adjustments for loss and immediate settlement here In Honolulu.. The financial showing is most ex cellent, with assets of $124,663.84 and stockholders' liability of $50,000. which elves them insurance assets in com parison far in excess of most of the j foreign companies doing business in this territory. From the financial statement pub lished recently the surplus of this Home company is shown to have in creased for the first two months of 1917 just $5449.70, and the company now paying monthly dividends to the stockholders of 12 per cent per annum. During the past six years there have been premiums collected and sent out of the territory by agents for outside companies, as follows: in miscel laneous lines (not including life in surance) approximately $1.0i0.000; in marine insurance, approximately $2, 000,000; in fire insurance, approxim ately $4,000,000. making a total of ap proximately $7,000,000. of which 10 per cent, at least, could have been written safely and profitably in this local enterprises, thus keeping a large amount of money in circulation in this territory.
