SAX FRANCISCO. .May 16.-The in
surancv companion will settk' their
losses iu their own way, each company
acting for itself, according to the con
tracts embodied in its policies and the
fire underwriter adjusting bureau will
make no attempt to dictate a general
policy or lay down uniform rules for
the companies to observe in the settle
ment of claims, according to a state
ment made yesterday by Attorney T. C.
Coogan. who is legal adviser to the
adjustment bureau. The adjustment
bureau is merely to act as a board of
appraisers in dealing with claims and
only report on losses sustained, leaving
the settlement entirely to the respective
companies. Mr. Coogan i-aid:
"The settlement of claims will not bt?
upon any uniform basis. Each company
will settle its own losses in its own
fashion. It has its own contracts em
Ixxlit'd in its own policies, and its own
attorneys to advise it. The adjutinj,'
bureau has no power to lay down any
uniform course or policy for observation
by the companies, no power to compel
them to waive conditions and legal
"N'o propo-itinn looking toward uni
formity of action has been sugfre-ted!
nor is there any truth in the report that
it is contemplated to cut los-es all down
the line and ettb; upon a percentage
"The companies will pay what they
legally owe. Moreover, they will be per
fectly fair, but thev will obev no rules
laid down for them by any bureau."

cnolHiiated by II. F. Atwood, chairman

sacts all the executive business of the
