Insurance Policy. The Mercantile Court held in construing a policy of insurance that, on the facts, the insured had fulfilled the general condition in their insurance policy of giving the insured such information as to the property lost as the insurers might reasonably require and as might be in the insured's power. The insurers were therefore liable for the loss.
