®j}e f\oxh$ ^bfrocatc, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1912. COUNTRY TOWN FIRES. The wholesale destruction by fire of property in country towns within the past few months has directed wide attention to a question of no inconsiderable importance. In this State, since August of last year, some half dozen towns have been more or less wiped off the map by Are.' This circumstance has given rise to 1 some sinister expressions of opinion, that may be not at all justified by the facts of the case in each instance. Referring to one of these fires, the preside" ing coroner expressed " the opinion that, the insurance companies I were reaping the result of their-own folly in over-insurance, arising from the keen competition that is'known to exist amongst agents and principals alike. The suggestion here is that the over-insui-ance induces incendiarism, but we would need strong proof in this direction to support anything j of the kind, that is to say, dealing with the general run of cases. Something of the...
