READY TO PAY
OBLIGATIONS
Fireman's Fund Is
Awaiting Final
Adjustment.
Early Settlement
Is Assured by
President.
Nothing since the recent disastrous fire
ha>- give. i more outward evidence of
greater assurance to the distressed popu
lace of Sen Pruncisco than the an
nouncement made by the Insurance com
panies that ail losses sustained by prop
erty ow:iers will be paid in full and as
rajjk'ly as the necessary adjustments are
maijt. Particularly has this feeliny been
nuticeible since a formal declaration was
n:adt two days ago by the Fireman's
Fund, which, with the Home Fire and
Marine and the Paciric Underwriters,
compose the strongc-st insurance concern
lr the West. The latter*, announcement,
coming at a time when public anxiety
war at its height, has buoyed the confi
dence of the smaller property holders of
San Francisco, whose only hope of re
establishing themselves in the new West
ern metropolis has been in realizing on
their insurance policies. In its piibluhed
statement the Fireman's Fund says:
"The Board of Directors cf the Fire
man's Fund Insurance Company an
nounces that the company is amply able
to pay ail liabilities accruing undfcr
the i/olicies involved in the gTeat San
Francisco conflagration, and at a meet
ing held April 27, 1906, unanimously
instructed its officers to pay ail claims
as adjusted and continue business as
usual. \VM. J. DUTTON. President."
"There has never been any disposition
oa the part of the Fireman's Fund to de-
Jay payment of its just liabilities." eaid
President Dutton yesterday, 'and we
would have proceeded with this work
without any public discussion of our
company's affairs had It not been for the
circulation of certain literature that has
h&d a tendency to mislead the public
concerning the settlement of insurance
losses. These unwarranted statements,
together with the story that has tone
abroad that cur company v/as hit very
hard in the recent fire prompted the di
rectors of the Fireman's Fund to issue
a formal announcement.
"It is difficult for me to state at this
•arly date exactly what our full loss is. for
we are as yet unable to get at our records.
Vice President Bernard Faymonville,
who is now hurrying home from Chicago,
would be able to give a most accurate
statement and he certainly will on his
c.-rival, for he is most familiar with the
company's city business. The company's
statement for January last, based on re
ports from the eight districts into which
San Francisco was divided, 6howed our
liabilities to be a trifle more than 17.000.
000. Therefore we may take that figure
rs a basis of calculation.
*Tv'e are told that three-fourths of San
Francisco was destroyed during the re
cent fire and that the surviving quarter
is in the residential sectcn. As the
Fire man's Fur.d was comparatively heav
ily involved Iji the latter district, we can
safely reckoir i". si fTT salvage there will
amount to very near $2,000,000, thereby
reducing oui« liabilities In San Francisco
to approximately $5,000,000.
"We also figure that another million
dollars will be deducted from the $5,000,*
000 wh*n an accounting Is rendered of
undamaged warehouses a.nd the total will
be further cut by elimin.ifthg the losses
cirecrly attributed to the earthquake and
the blowing up and tearing down 'of
buildings by the municipal government.
Our policies specifically provide against
rrsponsibilty of the company through
acts of this character by the city."
Ir. this way President Dutton estimates
tfw.t the losses of the Fireman's Fund
T*ill amount to a little more than $4,000.
000. That the Fireman's Fund Is well
prepved to met this liability promptly
he cites the fact that the report made to
the directors en January 1 showed that
the company's tital assets were $7,900.
000, of whicn $3.71^.000 was represented by
capital and surplus— an amount which
President Dutton says Is ample to ab
solve tho company of all Its responsibil
ities growing out of the fire.
"This condition of affairs," said Mr.
Dutton, "has b«en explained to the board
of director!?, which is composed of men
who count th'Mr wealth <n millions,
among them befnsr such prominent dti
reni= as Charl?.* 11. Bishop, John C Oolr
maiv George A. Newhall. Captain John
T. Wrigrht. Arthur A Smith, John Bir
roinphara and W. H. Brown. They hay«»
Instructed the oflieers of the company to
proceed with the settlement of losses as
wouM be «1on" in ordinary cises. and
the Fireman's Fund is new awaiting tl><»
result of the r<--r>ort of the underwriters."
President FMitton. while siieaking par
ticularly for his own company, «»mph;i
rlz'-d his opinion that nearly all th-i
niher insuranc 1 companies would pay
losse* in full. H» also a<Mert thnt wlillfe
