was don to Principal Hugh Sherwood, of

Manager of Columbia Construction
Company In Contempt' of Court.
For falling to appear In the Munici
pal Court yesterday morning for trial
on a charge of dumping garbage into
the Willamette River, I. N. Day, man
ager of the Columbia Construction
Company, will be arrested today on
his arrival from Tacoma. He Is cited
to appear before Judge Cameron to
show cause why he should not be pun
ished for contempt, and his bail has
been fixed at $300 cash.
Manager Day was arrested recently
on complaint of Acting Harbormaster
Smith, who charged him with dumping
refuse Into the river at the foot of
Couch street. Ball In that case was
fixed at $100, and when taken to police
headquarters Day made a loud com
plaint, saying he was not the man
wanted, and he finally appealed to
Municipal Judge Cameron, who re
leased him on his own recognizance.
Day promised Judge Cameron that he
would produce In court the man who
actually dumped the refuse Into the
river, and yesterday was the date set
for the hearing. The session of court
closed, however, without any appear
ance being entered by Day, and the
contempt citation was issued by Judge
Cameron later. It was placed in the
hands of Captain of Police Moore for

of demanding bail from every prisoner,
no matter how prominent. Several

Second Edition of "Something to Set

demand for this publication that the

other large edition. It certainly fills a

to last page it fairly sparkles with facts,
figures and arguments that are convinc

Insurance Rates Said to Be
Held Too Hirjh in '
Committee of Commercial Club,
Headed by E. M. Brannlck, Plans
1 to Delve Into Question, In In
terest of Policy-Holders.
For lower insurance rates In Portland,
a special committee of the Commercial
Club has been appointed to delve into
the matter of premiums. The committee,
headed by E. M. Brannick, and contain
ing Tom Richardson, J. Couch Flanders,
D. C. O'Reilly, F. H. Ransom and John
Annand, will boost the plan for a new
steel flreboat, to cost between $100,000 and
$125.000 this in the interest of better pro
tection and lower rates.
It is alleged that rates have been forced
up in the last three years by the under
writers, out of proportion with risks,
but Insurance men declare that this Is
not the fact.
It Is asserted that the reduction prom
ised three years ago, by the underwriters,
for a flreboat, has not beer) given, and
that where it has been demanded, new
risks have been found by the Insurance
companies, to offset it. But this also is
denied by the insurance men, who de
clare that many cases can be cited of
lower rates since the flreboat was built,
even including the 25 per cent Increase,
imposed after the San Francisco burn.
"Portland Is Squeezed."
"The Insurance comrJanles are squeezing
Portland for every dollar they can get,"
said Mr. Brannick yesterday. That's their
business, and we must expect It, I sup
pose. But it's a mighty heavy tax. Rates
have been boosted up all over the city
and are going up yet. I received notice
of an increase Just the other day. Then
there is that 25 per cent Increase, put on
us last May. Before we got our flreboat.
we were promised 15 per cent and 10 and
5 per cent reductions. We got the fire
boat, but' not the1 lower rates. On the
East Side there have been very heavy In
creases. Two or three years ago my busi
ness was paying $V60 per $100 for insur
ance; now it pays $2.59, which would be
one-third higher, or about $3.85, if we had
not put in sprinklers in our buildings.
Some of those properties near us are
paying $5. Many property owners in Port
land cannot afford to pay premiums and
therefore have to carry their own insur
ance." Other Side of Story. .
A different side is offered by insurance
men. A prominent member of their ranks
said yesterday that the flreboat had
brought rate reductions on the river front
and that be could cite many instances of
the fact, even with the 25 per cent in
crease included. The East Side had re
received no reductions on account of its
inaccessibility to the flreboat. That rates
In that part of the city are not too high,
he said was proved by the difficulty which
property owners have found in obtaining
insurance. Even in the dangerous district
east of Morrison bridge, he asserted there
were Individual risks which had rates
even lower than three years ago. Where
many buildings have collected in the last
two or three years, rates had been put up,
on account of the added hazard.
"The truth is," said he, "rates In
Portland are too low. This city is
exposed to conflagration, starting from
Its inflammable waterfront, yet rates
are not up to a compensating figure.
In North Portland I can point out
dwellings which are rated at 40 cents
per $100 Insurance, or 80 cents for
three years' Insurance. This is en
tirely too low."
J. D. Coleman, Northwest manager
for the Home Insurance Company, said
proof that rates in the United States
are not too high is found In the fact
that domestic insurance companies
made only 2 per cent on their paid-up
capital in the last ten years, before
the prodigious losses in San Francis
co occurred. Rates in Portland, lie
said, were on the same basis as in
other parts of the United States. "Who
of those who complain that insurance
companies are making too much mon
ey," he asked, "would put their money
in the insurance business, content to
receive back 2 per cent on their money
Insurance Surplus Wiped Out.
"It should be remembered that the In
surance companies have gone deep into
their pockets and refunded not only the
dividends they have drawn since their or
ganization, but in-addition have levied
heavy assessments against stockholders
to meet the losses and impairment of their
capital. There was not insurance surplus
enough in the whole world to meet the
San Francisco losses, and the companies
stand today In an impoverished condition
as a whole surplus gone, capital gone,
nothing left but name. There are some 30
companies that were able to meet their
losses out of surplus; nevertheless, the ag
gregate surplus of all the companies could
not possibly meet the losses sustained.
All others have become weakened to
the extent that they are not able to pay
their honest obligations. It Is only those
engaged in the insurance business that
know the real, true situation.
"The recent increase of rates, through
out the United States was imperative for
the protection of the insuring public
throughout the world, should another con
flagration occur in the near future. At
the present time there is not a single
dollar of surplus In the aggregate, avail
able to meet a similar fire. The excep
tions, such as the 30 companies men
tioned, are not able to carry the liability
of the world. Therefore, what Ms the
little 25 per cent advance to the merchant
who wants first-class protection to the
property he has devoted his entire life in
accumulating? We are committed to the
advance in rates for the reason that un
less the weakened companies secure as
sistance at this time in the replenishing
of their surplus 70 per cent of them will
be forced to the wall. The strong com
panies have no desire to bring about a
financial crisis which would certainly
follow should such a calamity happen.

Without a replenished surplus there would
be no protection whatsoever for the in
suring public against even a smaller con
flagration. "Profits Are Small."
"While it is true there are upwards
of 40 companies left, having a surplus
with which to continue business and
meet future conflagrations, yet that
number is only a small proportion of
the insurance companies of the world,
and could not begin to care for the lia
bility should the large majority of
companies be compelled to enter "into
liquidation; consequently, I hold that
it is far more to the interest of the
public that an increase of rates should
be had than it is to the insurance com
panies, for the stockholders could read
ily invest their money elsewhere to
far better advantage than engaging in
the hazardous undertaking of fire in
surance. I will venture the assertion
that there is no class of investors on
top. of earth that have been more mag
nanimous and public-spirited than
those engaged in the insurance busi
ness, coming forward as they have
with the dividends they have hereto
fore drawn, augmented by new capital,
for the purpose of making good tlieir
obligations and continuing in business.
"Money is timid and shrinks from
uncertain ventures, and as there has
been less than 2.1 per cent profit in
the underwriting business covering a
period of upwards of a quarter of a
century, it must be admitted that such
a margin of profit is exceedingly small.
Strange to me that the public is not
willing to study the history of such
matters before forming opinions con
demnatory to those who have not only
ventured their money, but have paid
the penalty of so doing, by surrender
ing the profits heretofore drawn, and
digging deep into their pockets for
new capital with which to continue
business. Missionary work among
business men by disseminating a true
knowledge of the Are insurance situa
