Fires and Incendiarism. Economist. 11 January. 1868.

The evidence given before the Select Committee on Fire Protection startling. After carefully weighing the evidence presented to it, the committee reports that apparently 1/3 of the fires which occur in England are intentional. … There is such a competition for business among the various offices, that it is better worth their while to pay fraudulent claims than to alienate new insurers. „The sympathy of the jury, and of the Court, is always against the office“, says the Imperial Fire Assurance Office. – Insurance office which prosecute are supposed to do so with an eye to personal advantage – and that the verdict of guilty for which they strive, is in reality a verdict for the amount of the policy. … The assessor to the County Fire Office gives as a list of the classes with whom fires are most frequent: „small shopkeepers on the verge of bankruptcy; foreigners principally of the Hebrew Persuasion, Germans or Poles; the stock of these persons consists principally of dummies or imitation goods made of plaster of Paris; cheesemongers and chandler-shop keepers have half-tubs of butter, sides of bacon, bladders of lard, cheeses; grocers have loaves of sugar, chests of tea, and reams of paper; tobacconists have cigars in bundles; tailors and linendrapers, rolls of cloth made of straw, and parcels filled with sawdust; publicans, wine merchants, and perfumers, the contents of bottles are coloured water.“

The insurance offices remark that whenever one branch of trade is depressed, fires are sure to happen among their votaries.
