Lethbridge Branch-- R. T. Brymtter, Mgr. Ef, Alls., December M. P. Johnston, LethbrUec. Dear Sir: Re. HAIL INSURANCE INTERVIEW Iteferrlng to our conversation wjtb your- selftaud Mr. Edjetl, I will say that since the Lime of my beginning farming opera- tions in Eautaem Alberla 12 years ago.-I bare becu tbe riucstlon of ball In- surance more less closely. That some Uud of satisfactory Insurance h abialutely necessary for the prolcctton of the farmers, [s universally admitted, and, as Ibo try becomes more settled this necessity be- comes more urgent. Any Insurance in order to be satisfactory (o the farmers must have three, requisites: 3. The emou-i! to be recovered. In caie of loss must ns certain (not depaidaut upon any sum to be collected.) 2. The loss tnnat be paid promptly. 3. The cost of OIB insurance 'must he reasonably near tho actual rlst. The question Is, how can these requisites best ue secured? favoring tho Mulua! Idea, my inclination was br means of a .Mutual company. But. In hall insurance th'e condl- .lions are peculiar, tie losses all occur with-' 'In approximately sli weeks. The Mutual flan, provides no money, or little money, until the losses are This means a credit plan. Credit aiwcys appeals most la those who have not got Jt. In a nev: country, this means many bad accounts, nnd that hljsh nercentage of loss on collection mnsl he the rule. All of this very miierialiy Increases Ihe cost of the insurance to those who do pay. So that In.n Mutual company BDt only is it Impossible to secvrre Vhe tlrsl two requisites, Uie cost of Insurance la greatly Increased, thereby ranVmr tbe third requisite also Impossible. It Is evident, therefore, that In the solution of Uie. prob- lem that the mutual company infty elim- inated.. Dut what of Hall Inaitr- once? i The most thai we can tt that U lias not elven sc.Usdctioh, not only because the ilrst two requisites have not been obtained ,'n this form of Insurance and oecause '.he amount of Insurance Is inadequate, but he- cause thai most people recognize that the flat rate system is more or less unjust. The man who farms nil his land, to ernln, piyj no more for Ma Insurance than his iielgiiljor- who1 Is In'elock .raising and hay and requires little hall Insurance. The good quarter section all taxed no more than the one that Men In the coulee and Is fit only for Bcsldej. the hall insurance lai takes precedence' orpr Ihe first mortgage, antl thereby materially Interferes'with the farmer's credIL It Is evident thni In tho ultimate solution of tie Hall problem. If the Jlunlrlpal Hall Inaur- 'ance Is lo factor al all, It must be wtlh great modifications and Improvements .from the present form, 'v What about the ordinary old line Ineur- ancc companies? It can bo tnilhfully jsld that the first two requisites above mentioned can be reason-' ably obtained through. 'insurance in these Companlei.ibutVhen we. come to the third requisite,
