Notional CnvntlM if Klre IliJirwrliin. ! The o (.invention known as the National Hoar J of Pin Underwriter* reassembled at Na 108 Broadway yester day morning at half-past nine o'clock. President J If. McLean, of the Citisena' Fire Insurance Company or this city, occupied the chair. The attendance of dalegau a *w very large, and the proceodtng* were of a most in teresting character. The Hon. William Barnes, Super intendent of Insurance in the State of New York, being present, was invited to a seat alongside the President. The flirt business transacted was the taking from the table of a report presented on Wednesday by Mr. Merk Howard, of the Merchants' Pire Insurance Company of Hartford, in relation to oYKtt MstrnaNCB. Mr. Howaan spoke earnestly against the custom which obtained in many companies of insuring proqsrty to its its full value or even over its value. It bad, ha thought, a bad influence on the business, and held out tempta tion* to those dishonestly disposed. The unlim ited insurance policy was full of ovil, he said. It caused the assured to become neglectful as to proper care and watchfulnosa over their places of business and their residences, and was a fruitful cause of losses to the insurance compa nies. A clause to the effect that no further insurance should be made la other companies without consent ought, in bit opinion, to be inserted in every policy. In order to correct the custom of unlimited insurance he moved the adoption of the following resolutions ? Whereas it heiac the design of the fire insurance con tract ?;nt In cover the full v.ilue of tlie subject insured, but to leave a portion of it at the risk of the purtv insured to secure his vtudniit interest in iu preie vstioo; 'sod whereas this tiiv.e honored barrier to iii"er. lignum having been re. etui!ly broken down, end nnhmite.t insurance permitted, catisiua i ripld Increase of devastating lires. which threeleu the eristcuee of the entire insuraucc capital of ihr rouiitry; therefore lie it Resolved. That in the opinion of thin Imerd the adoption of I he following s'lniihition in futtiro flre Insurance ron tracts is deemed naeeeaury to arrest thU alarming evil ami to re?toip proper relations between the insurer and in sured?It !? understood and agreed to ho a condition of this insurance that in ra-e of any lor* or claim under this policy that the insurers ran ami shall or only liable for the t'lree fourtlis of tlio same not exceeding the sum here;rrfnsured and thai one-quarter shall be borne by the lu-ured. Mr Osarlrp I'Lvrr. of the North American Insurance Company, of Philadelphia, thought thai the jilun pro posed hr Mr Howard would not eflhet the desired object. The three fourths rule would, in his opinion, have a dlsns'mus offect ou the Insurance business. It. wif contemplaied, he stipposud. to in"roase the premium while th" r-k w as lessened. This would pr Tent the mercantile community from insuring to mi (ante an eg. tent as was the custom at present. Ho moved that tho resolutions Ik- referred to the Executive Committee to lie elected After sonic further deliate the mailer was sc. referred. The '-^ereiary of the New York Board of I-'ire Under writers transmitted lo the,"convention Hie nclion of that Beard it a into meeting, whirl} recommends tho incor poration ??f t ie Hamburg clause in all forms of policy for the future The following is the clause referred to:?

He did not think that the Hamburg clause, however, w mid stand the test of tin court" Suppose that Mr. Chittenden had been insured for f SOO.OOO and thai when th* fir* which de Stroved his nronerlv broke out his Mock was remarkablv email, ye'. had ho nnid premium on $800,000, the court would award liim that amount. He wished just here to .Treci ihe attention of tho convention to the practice of aliowine broker's commission to the insured party when ?he :n?o tance was eaeeied withont tho aid of an agent. This practice wa? hurtful, and Hie local board in his city hud Yoqueeted hi;n lo bring the matter before the con v out -on , Mr Honors, of New York, thought the best remedy to prevent fraudulent iostes was to make strict inquiry a* to ilie character of every party applying for a policy. This wn- as ne.-ea-sry in tho Insurance business now as it was in the eatrving on of commercial Irnosnctlons. Mr I>. A. Hkai.ii, of New York, reraarkod that this subject was important The evils that the offices now suffered wem various. One of them was incendiarism at the hands of the vagabond; another incendiarism caused '?y parties who had over insured thei- oroperiv and were to be beneilted liy ite destruction. Then again the neglect and indifference an to flre. or th* likelihood or configuration, caused by the present system of over insttrauce, or insurnnco Tor the full value of property. Whether the three-fourths clsuco would remedy these evils he knew not. hut some reform in the manner of in surance was imperatively demanded. For himself he would say that he considered the needed reform conld only be brought about by making the Insured in every case a party to the risk. The discussion of the matter would have a tendency to educate the people up to a proper insurance standard, and prepare thorn for such chances lo the manner of issuing policies a* might hereafter be agreed upon. It waa. in his opinion, too true that tho temptation to commit fraud waa in many oases held out to the insured by the companies them selves, end from this cause we might attribute the in crease in losses. The moral hasant woe to-day more im portant than the financial hazard?it was mere injurious. He was firmly convinced that a uniform rule of in quiry into th* character and standing of every applicant for insurance would lessen the losses at least twenty five per cent yearly. Mr. Hera, of New York, thought that the beet remedy was to create a large surplus fond by increasing the tarifi rates of insurance. What caused the great disas ters la the business ? Yean ago liberty to obtain In surance almost Indefinitely waa incorporated in every policy, and this was the fruitful eourre of the mischief that bad been wrought As citizens, they bed a duty to perform beyond mere money making. They ought to prevent men from becoming rascals, so far as II lay is their power to do so. But be donbted whether sufficient unanimity could be obtained in this convention to adopt the radical change now proposed by the Hamburg clause. He would advise all companies to eslabium high rates, and then, for good and sufficient cause, allow deductions therefrom. As a moral man, he would favor the cur tailment of risks; but as an insurance man. will ing to make money-, he would not. The more nu merous end the larger the dree ware th* better it was for the companies. What he coasidored the principal cense of conflagrations was the alacrity with which com panies rushed to pay up losses. He knew or Instance* where these bad been paid without a particle of proof ever having been presented aa to the cause or lire or as to the extent of Ions. Let the companies take time, in vestigate and deliberate before they pay, and losses would be materially lessened. The neglectfolnrss in watching over properly would then he remedied. He wished to have the Executive Committee look into this matter and prepare a claute covering this ground, to be inserted In policies. Mr. Kmuesrar, of Providenoe, R. I., favored the three-fourths rule, but thought the whole subject should bo referred to the Kxerutivn Committee. Mr. Chaslks Pi.itt, of Philadelphia, hoped the com mittee would ha Increased to tlfty. and that tho waiter would be rrfVrrrd to them. Ho fnvored a pro rain clause. He invariably charred double rates when an appl cant did not fully insure. Mr. Mark Hiiwarii said that he did not wish lo press bis resolution against any great opposition, and be would concur in the projioeltion to refer to the Executive Com mlltoe. with instructions to report at the next meeting of th* National Board. The motion to refer was then agreed to. ran AoromniwT or t/wnta The Committee on Adjustment, through Mr. N. P. Campbell, chairman made a r-por? lo the effect that about ten per cent of the losses paid each year were ovor payment*, Amounting to about $10 000,000 annually. The ranae of this over payment, the committee aver, la the scant investigation bestowed on the origin ot confla grations and th* extent of the losses so Cored. The com mittee recommend that no payments of lames be mede until a minority of the companies concerned concur a* to the amount dne the Insured, that whenever the riaks ombodtod tn a policy are specific as well as general the latter shall he considered to pay pro row on each specific subject of insurance, and that louses be paid at the maturity or the elelm The repor. having been accepted. Mr D. R 8attsai.ua. of Now Haven, moved to emend by making ail lueses payable at the expiration of sixty days from the completion of proof, and that whenever payments were made before the end of such sixty days upro rota deduction be made from ench payment. He would make this mandatory on tho companies repre sented. Mr. A. Bowun, of Ihe North American Insurance Cnrapenv of Boston, opposed tho mandatory proposi tion. He moved to amend lb* -intendment bv making the suggestion as to the time of payment recommenda tory only. After some debet* lb- amendment, as Amended, was adopted. Mr. I) A. Hrald, Chairman of the Executive Uom tnitwe. reported * summary of tho doing' of that body during the past year. The report was accepted sr An em* to ?? i-roit.-HiD Mr. ITiald thou offered the following, which waa adopted without d'hate Whevea*. th1-organisation may be made the medium of obtaining valuable statistical Information or frost imi>or jsecr to tha iBAuranoe luteraet. at a trilling expense tbere Resolved.
