LLOYDS EXPECT PEACE BEFORE CLOSE OF YEAR London, March 18. Inquiries are being received at Lloyds for insurance to pay total loss in case of peace being declared during the present year. The inquirers are large firms who hold war contracts and who have to give orders for material sometime ahead and at war prices. As a result premiums are- inclined to show an- upward tendency. One underwriter said that for an in surance to pay total loss in the event of peace being l'lared by the end of June, he would quote a rate of twenty guineas per cent, while for a similar policy extending to the end of the year the rate would be seventy per cent. Some brokers quoted as high as 90 per cent for a policy insuring against the war ending by the end of December. These rates are intended to be prohibitive and no transactions were effected. The rates also are, an indication that the underwriters believe that the war will not continue beyond the end of the present year. Their optimism is based on the failure of the Germans to pierce the French lines at Verdun, rumors that Germany is putting - out feelers in the direction of peace and that Turkey' has made proposals for a seperate peace.
