Tliero has been about 60 per cent
more property destroed by fire- in
Columbia in 1910 than any jear pro
ceeding, according to the testimony
of local insurance men. Upon inves
tigation of the insurance records, it
was found that the property loss for
$70,000 was paid by tho insurance
the ear just ended is aiproimately
$100,000. Of this loss approximately
Fuither, the early insurance prem
iums paid by property owners of Co
lumbia is from $10,000 to $30,000. It
is seen then that the insurance com
panies are putting moro money into
Columbia than they are taking away
as premiums on policies at lea this
is true for the jear 1910.
Thero hae been about forty-fhe
nres within the city limits in the last
twelve months. The ftro that de
strojed the Tandy block was the most
Uestmcthe of the jeai. Other large
fires were those that dcrtrojed the
residences of V. B. Now ell and E. A.
Robnett, the Morris Ice 1'laut, and
the West End Hotel.
Two reasons are assigned for the
heavy property loss by fire. The un-'
usually dry weather that has pre-
ailed this fall has resulted in several
big fires that would not otherwise
have happened. The other reason,
according to insurance men, is that
the town has not the fire equipment
that it should have. Insurance merr
say that additional equipment at a
central station or the establishing oj
a station in another part of the towa
would do much toward lessening tbt
loss by fire. .
