A Bargoed Insurance Claim. NO FRAUDULENT REPRESENTATION. JUDGE AND TOUTING AGENTS. At Merthyr County Court last Friday, be- fore Judge Bryn Roberts, Emma Sheen, Bar- goed, claimed from the Royal Liver Friendly Society the return of premiums, amounting to £ 13 6s.. in respect of two policies of insurance which were effected on the 14th of December 1905.—Mr W Harold S. Stowe (instructed b;. Mr. D. Edward Jones) appeared for the plain tiff, and Mr. F. S. Simons for the defendanti. Mr. Stowe said that the plaintiff was induccc by her brother-in-law, an agent of the company, j to effect the insurances upon the lives of hei j father and mother respectively. It was on- I of those cases where an agent of an insurant company went round a district among pcov who were poor and ignorant of matters of and got them to take policies. Some y later the plaintiff way told by an inspe-vi of the Society that the policies were wor. I nothing; that, in fact. they were invalid. 1; consequence of this statement, she put herseli in communication with the Society and askeo for the return of the premiums, but she gOl no satisfaction. She consulted a solicitor, who also wrote to the Society, but the only reply received was that the matter was under con- sideration. Nothing, however, had been done by the defendants, hence the case was brought into court. His Honour held that the plaintiff had not been induced to enter into the contract by any fraudulent representation, and he gave judg ment for the Society In this case there was no insurable interest so that the insurance of the parents was illegal. He declined, however, to grant them costs, saying that companies whose agents went touting from house to house accepted insurances wholesale which they perftctly well knew to be quite illegal.
