Defiance Express (Newspaper) - August 5, 1903, Defiance, Ohio
A a \ a x v i \ i ii a. O ? de France Isa City the second Grade population to too growing rapidly situated at the Confluence the a Glaize and Maumee heart the great Maumee Valley loth year no. 78defiance, o., wednesday August 5, 1903. Vol to will be some Advance in this action is based upon made in april. Inspection Stover Bro?., the insurance men have race veil the new insurance rate Book which went into effect August i 1003 and it contains Many frets Para Mont Intel est to the property holders and business men this City. In april this year an inspection Survey this City was made by a representative the Ohio inspection Bureau insurance and it is upon the report this inspector that the rate for the new year is based. The rate upon Brick buildings win remain about the same thai it has been with possibly a Little Advance but Stock there will be an Advance from 20 to 50 per cent. The inspector in his report Points to some things some reforms that if carried out would reduce the rate and for that reason we think it is a Good thing that our readers should know something about them. There is not a thing touching upon the policy the City relative to fire Protection that is not fully considered. The water company its pumps engines standpipe and Mains Are fully considered the Power the company to do work fully set Forth. The fire department also comes in for due consideration. The inspector finds that we have the Gamewell fire system but insists that the City ought to have 20 More alarm boxes. Lie finds also that the City needs 2000 i i feet More Hose 1000 feet at the 1 Central fire station 500 feet at the second Ward budding and 500 feet at the third Ward building. In addition to that he says the City ought to have Good Volunteer fire companies at both the second and third Ward buildings. This is exactly in line with what the daily express has advocated. But notwithstanding the failure the authorities to arise to the importance enlarging and strengthening the fire department the failure to do that very the my is Felt by the business men in a Sharp Advance in insurance rates. Of course there Are other influences that tend to keep up rates and they too ought to be considered. During the inspectors visit to this City lie went through All our business houses from cellar to Garret. What he found was too much rubbish not Only in cellars and vacant rooms but also in the Alley ways. In one cellar he found 200 pounds dynamite and 50 Gallons gasoline. Think what a menace to the safety the City those forces were and what would have happened in event a fire. They would not Only have endangered the lives the firemen but if exploded would have injured property and Over the City. Of the authorities take measures to remove these evils that will mean the reduction the merchants insurance rates. If the merchants themselves win not take advantage the Means thus offered for their betterment the authorities ought to gently i assist them. The simple task keeping business places rid rubbish and an excess co bus Tible matter Means lower rates and Why not. Therefore take advantage it the use unapproved gasoline lightning plants in the store room Means a higher insurance rate. Why not Cut Down the rate by putting the system in such shape that it can be approved there Are quite a number Ter the Hicksville Telephone company is meeting with considerable discouragement in building its line near Farmer Center.
