INCENDIARY FIRES.I

INCENDIARY FIRES. THE Counties of Denbigh and Flint have lately attained an unenviable notoriety for the frequent fires which have occurred and the circumstances under which the greater number of those fires have taken place, leave very little room for doubt that they were not the result of mere negligence or accident. Indeed, such is the extraordinary charater of fires generally in farm homesteads, that many Insurance Companies are calling upon the County Coroners to put in force the power they possess of holding inquests in reference to fires, even when no death has occurred. This is right; for it has always been found exceedingly difficult to obtain information on such matters; but by putting the law in force persons can be called to give evidence on oath, who otherwise would not give information. We shall be glad to see a more general use of the Coroner's powers in this respect, believing that it will tend materially to lessen the number of fires. We have been led to make these observations from seeing a report of such an inquiry, which is contained in another column in this day's impression, where a verdict of incendiarism was returned, but the perpetrator of the deed is unknown. We trust the police will not relax in their exertions to discover the miscreant who committed the deed.
