NO BELIEF IN SIGHT JUST NOW Senator Hudspeth Thinks It Will Be Necessary to Wait For Legislature. The insurance companies have played their trump card. In. circular letters sent to the El Paso local agents, the insurance companies doing 'business in j Texas have notified, their El Paso rep- ! resentatives that ifhey -will not renew policies expiring after July 11, where the property to be insured is either a mer cantile risk or is exposed by a mercan tile rfek. Neither are the agents allowed to i write new policies on the mercantile risks under the revised rates which "were announced by the state fire rating board on June 28, and any renewals -which tad. already been made upon policies due to ! evnirp on nr after the llch are ordered to be canceled and the policy returned J to the eompanr marked "spoiled.-" The reason given bj" the insurance companies for this radical action is tJiat thev have been unable to satisfy them selves that they can afford to assume the risks at the rates which were or dered by the rating board. This "means that El Paso merdiants whose insurance policies -will empire in the immediate future will be deprived f insurance until the legislature takes I some action at its special session on Julv 19, or the insurance companies de cide to accept tsxe new business at the reduced rates. Isot all of the local agents in El Paso have received these notifications, but it is vhought that the action of the insurance companies is a concerted one and will include all of the companies doing business in the j state There seems to be no immediate relief for the insurance situation, and a num ber of business men wiH be deprived of insurance protection. The mutual com panies are not able to carry a sufficient amount of insurance to offer an ade quate means of protection -for- the heav ilv insured business district, the local agents say. while little or no aid from foreign companies can be expected, as these same agents say that all of the reliable companies are now operating in Texas. Senator Claude B. Hudspeth stated Monday morning that no relief could be obtained by means of a, temporary in function restraining the companies from canceling their policies or refusin" to write new business The insurance law under "which the companies are now operating, Senator Hudspeth said, was framed for the eonpanies arid it is his opinion that it would be impossible to enjoin the companies under the existing law.
