Lynn Mutual Fire Insurance Company held its
34th annual meeting at the Granton opera house last
Tuesday. An unusual large attendance was present, in all
about 260 policy holders having registered. The meeting was
called to order at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, with John
Kintzele acting as chairman in place of the president, J. W. Short,
who was sick and confined to his bed and unable to attend the
meeting. The election of three directors whose terms expired
that day resulted in the re-election of C. W. Dewey, P. N.
Christensen, and Geo. A. Ure. It was voted to pay John Goebel
the sum of 65 dollars to cover the damage done to his barn by
lightning last summer while the same was under course of
construction. Mr. Goebel had no insurance on the building at
the time, but had always been a member of the company before and
after that damage occured. In allowing Mr. Goebel the above
amount, the company merely did an act of kindness which is greatly
appreciated. The secretary’s report shows that there
are now in force 4234 policies with a total insurance of
$7,503,813.55, with a gain of nearly one million in one year.
The best of harmony prevails among the members, all being convinced
that the officers are doing their level best to make the Lynn
Mutual Fire Insurance Co. the largest, strongest and most
economically conducted company in Wisconsin. At the
directors’ meeting the old officers were re-elected,
namely: J. W. Short, President; P. N. Christensen, Vice
President; Geo. A. Ure, Secretary: John P. Kintzele,
Treasurer. The next meeting will be held here again but the
date has been changed from the first to the third Tuesday in
January. This will give the committees more time to get their
annual reports ready for the annual meeting.
The meeting of the Cyclone Insurance Co. which was held the following day was not very largely attended. The officers and directors who served the company to the entire satisfaction of all were re-elected. The company now has 1081 policies with a total insurance of $1,536,771.00. It is now six years old and has never made an assessment.
