YIOUTIND INJUNCTION rSSCR AXCECOMPANIES S.4n>_ TO BE IfiXOffrXG\)HDEl^OF COURT. IT MAY MEAN AEGEIVERS ATTORXEY fiEXERAL MAY ASK FOR ONE FOR E.tCH COMPAXY. Copy of Circular Received at Topeka Would Indicate That Eldrldgo Rnling Is Still Csed. Special Correspondence.) Topeka. Oct. 20.—A copy of a circular sent out from the olllce in Clil- cai;o of a proniinoiii attache of ii number of big fire insurance companies, which is ill the hands of private parties here, indicate that many fire insurance companies operating in Kansas are continuing under advice of legal counsel, to use the Kldridge rating book in fixing premtnm rates de- siiite the temporary Injunction issued by Jiid.i-'e A. W. Dana of the district court of Shawnee county in tho anti- trii.M. suits hrouglit against tho insurance companies by Attorney General Jack.soii. It is possible that this circular may result In the apiiointmont of a receiver for each of the companies defendant in the sliils. The circular, wliich is addres.^ieil to Companies Interested in litigation," is as follows: "The defendants interested, in the anti-trust suit brought by the .Attorney Genreal of Kansas against the insurance companies agree with me that at this time there is no objection or impropriety for the defendant companies to continue taking the Eldridge estimates or in sending the estimates to their agents in Kansas or In using them as a ciiide in accepting business in that slile." The suits hronght by .-Xtiorney General Jacksou are based soli^y on the contention that the Insurance companies violate the anti-trust laws of Kansas by using tlie estimates on ]>rciiiiums, the theory of the state being that the use of these estimates has operated to destroy competition in fire insurance rates and iMiIlt up a tire insurance pool. The state asks a permanent injunction prohibiting the use of the ICIilridge estimates .-mil that violation of th" Injunction be followed by the appoint.- ment of a receiver for each company .t -o violating the injunction. When the suits were filed Dana issued a temporary restraining order to the defendant companies which was in part as follows: '•.Now. therefore, ii is ordered by t;ie couri tliat a temporary injunction issue to said defendants, and each of them..and that they and each of them, are hereby enjoined a:id restrained until the further order of the court from pror^eding further wieh any of the unlawful combinations and arrangements alleged in plaintiffs petition, or from doing any act whatsoever in furtherance of said arrangement and combination, and they and each of tln-m are tcmjiorarily enjoined and restrained from doing any act of similar nature to said unlawful combinations, or in which in any way is de.'^igued to or tends to contnd the rate and cost <»f fire Insurance to the citizens of Kansas within this state, and the defendants and each of them are; temporarily enjoined and restrained from confederating together for any such or similar purpose, and they and each of them are restrained and enjoined to refrain from violation of all other laws of this state prohibiting arrangements, combinations, pools, trusts, and agreements in restraint of trade, liusliiess and com- nierce of this slate." The restrtiining order states in plain terms that the insurance companies are enjoined from using the Eldrldge rates, as the state alleges they have been used In the past. The circular referred to above indicates that there is a covert agreement among the Insurance companies, or at least some of them, that the use of the Eldrldge estimates shall be continued in Kansas despite the order of the court. \\Tiether Attorney General Jack.son will present the matter to the court and ask the appointment of receivers or the citation of some of the defendant comiianies to appea( and show cause why^they should not be punished for contempt can not be stated at this time. He will probably consider the matter for several days t>efore taking any action at all. The reading of the circular and the restraining order seem to indicate a clear casa of coa tempt of court at the least. , When the lns(irance suits were flrst filed an affitlavit made by C. W. Barnes, superintendent of insurance, contained the allegations of the state as to the alleged illegal operations of the insurance companies. At the motion of the defendants this affidavit was stricken fro mthe petition and the state required to make its petition more definite and certain. The amended petition w^as filed yesterday. This time the Attorney General sets out In full the operations of the Eldrldge bureau, which is maintained itt Topeka. in inspecting insuriible property In all ptirts of the state, classifying it as to risk of loss by fire, estimating the premium rate which should be charged, the practice of the insurance companies in subscribing for the Eldridge estimates and basing their premium rates thereon. Copies of the rating books issued by and supplements thereto are attached to the petition as exhibits. I.'ulcss Attorney General Jackson' takes immediate steps to have tin; companies cited for contempt the companies will probably make the next move.- Since the filing of ilie suits; there have been persistent rumors that some of the companies have been violating the injunction but no steps have been taken for the reason that it was difficult to secure evidence. The circular .sent out from Chicago will iielp greatly in that direction. \Vbm filing the amended petitions. Assistant .Mtorney Genera! John S. Dawson, moved that eight companies be dismissed as plaintrfFs 0:1 their affidavit that they have not been and are not now siiiiscriiiers to the Eldridge liiireaii. With the exception of the eiglit companies against -which suit was dismissed on this motion and the mutual companies, all the fire insurance companies operating in Kansas are delendants in the anti-trust suits. The companies which were dismissed as defendants are American Druggists Fire Insurance company. Glen Falls Insunmce company. Columbia Insurance Company, Germania Insiir.ince company, Texas National Eire Insurance company and the Insurance company of the State of Illinois. HOGHIN SPOT LIGM CLASHES WITH MR.
