From Ionia Standard.
The annual meeting of the People's
Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Ionia.
Montcalm and Clinton counties, held at
Opera house, Ionia, on Tuesday afternoon,
was largely attended by members from
all of the counties, President John E.Tay
lor in the chair.
The annual report of the Secretary
showed 588 members added during the
year 1905, and a net gain of 315; and
$896,249 insurance added, being a net
gain of $577,747 during the year, with a
total amount at risk December 31, 1905,
of $.704,575. There were 102 losses
during year, amounting to $15,466.95.
Of these 67 were from lightning.
The secretary supplemented the report
with the following resume, showing the
growth of company in recent years:
"In submitting this report for your ac
tion, 1 wish to congratulate the member
ship of the company upon the bright out
look of the future. The growth of the
company during the past two years has
been phenominal. $875,000 new insur
ance was written in 1904 and $869,000
in 1905 over $1,770,000 during the two
years, while 590 new members were ad
ded in 1 904 and 588 in 1905: 1 178 in
two years. Today the company numbers
over 4.500 members and has at nk
nearly S6.000.000 of Insurance During
the 16 years that I have served the com
pany as secretary 16 of the best years
of my life 1 have seen It grow from 861
members to its present large membership
over 5 times the number. To the loyal,
zealous work of directors and a score of
solicitors, is to be credited the great suc
cess achieved in building up the Company
so that today it stands the strongest Mu
tual in Michigan. During the time I
have served as Secretary over $260,000
have been received and disbursed, not a
dollar of which to my knowledge has been
lost to the company. And now, in con
clusion, I wish to express my warmest
thanks for the courtesy and kind acts of
friendship I have received at your hands."
Lucas M. Miel, of Belvidere, ex-county
treasurer of Montcalm county, and a
member of the board of directors of the
People's company, was unanimously elect
ed president. He is a man of the highest
standing in his county, familiar with the
company's affairs, and his election is a
cause of general satisfaction to the mem
bership. V. H. Smith of this city was re-elected
vice-president without contest, no other
