INSURANCE NEWS.
Life and property vs. explosive oil; which
shall win.
Olve me liberty, or give me-low-test coal oil
fgr my lamP.
A life is lestroyod by a pistol-shot. or a knife
thrust, and we call it murder; by an exploding
lamp., and we call it accident; a distinction, but
where is the ditffrence?
The fire department had fourteen runs,
twQlve fires and two false alarms during the
monfd just closed; and twelve is the averago
nuiber of August fires for the past. ten years.
We desire to call attention to theb insurance
eard of P. A. Barker, Eao.. which appears in
another column. He has a line of sterling eom
panies, and those who desire pleasant business
relations and ample security against loss will
do well to give him a call.
Abolish State supervision. which has proven
itself a curse to insurance In'erests; prohibit
the amalgamation ot life insurance companies;
make it a penal, or. better, a capital offense, and
then enforce it a few times, and no more will be
heard of life insurance failures, and policy
holders can rest secure forevermore.
N.w Onatass, August 81. 157.
Rditor Democrat - As an insurance man I
thought your insurance news column a good
thing--oonducted for the good of the commu
aity. Will you please advise in that column
what you charge for such a puff as appeared
this morning of the Royal Canadian.
INSURANOE.
We doubt net but that "Insurance" is the
agent of some "wild cat" company and that he
is himself a .ar. All we said of the Royal Cana
dian is absolutely incontrovertible. If "Insur
ance" will call at our office and repeat to us
what he writes above we promise him a warm
reception.
