The following article taken from
the Roseburg Spokesman is timely
and to the point Grants Pass has
the same complaint, but what's the
use? Following is the article:
"This is about all that is necessary
to say in regard to the periodical
visits from a lot of insurance in
spectors who come around to inspect
and find fault or a chance or apparent
reason to raise the rates that are al
ready too high. One man couids
along and represents himself to be an
inspector and requires that oertain
changes be made in the wiring of
buildings and in about sis months
another one tramps into town and
condemns what his predecessor has
reoommsnded and says that changes
must be made or else rates will be
raised. In some instances the changes
recommended are not feasible or possi
ble to be made with the result that
another chance is found to cause a
raise in insurance rates. This seems
to be about the real object '4hese
perlodioal visitors have in view, and
they always succeed in accomplishing
their object ,
"The wiring of. Rosoburg was
made under the supervision of in
spectors and with their approval but
these later days we find there are
those who are wiser in their own es
timation and so what was done in the
years gone by is Improper and must
now be done over. The whole thing
is one of those disgusting grafts that
