PRUDENTIAL ASSURANCE COM- PANY, LIMITED. CHIEF OFFICE HOLBORN BARS, LONDON. SUMMARY OF THE REPORT PRESENTED AT THE FORTY-FIFTH ANNUAL MEETING, Held on 1st March, 1891. The Directors have much pleasure in presenting their Report and Accounts for the year 1893. ORDINARY BRANCH.—The number of Policies issued during the year was 54,558, assuring the sum of d65,627,065, and producing a New Annual Premium Income of £ 304.928. The Premiums received during the year were £ 1,854.370, being an increase of £188,759 over the year 1892. The claims of the year amounted to £ 478,564. The number of deaths was 3,397, and 154 Endow- ment Assurances matured. The number of Policies in force at the end of the year was 335,17(5. INDUSTRIAL BRANCH.—The Premiums re- ceived during the year were £3,971,863, being an increase of £ 122,706. The Claims of the year amounted to £ 1,662,708. The number of Deaths was 185,003, and 1,267 Endowment Assurances matured. The number of Free Policies granted during the year to those Policyholders of five years' standing, who have desired to discontinue their payments, was 55,7G4, the number in force being 338,272. The number of Free Policies which became Claims during the year was 6,424. The total number of Policies in force at the end of the year was 10,476,393 their average duration is seven and a quarter years. The Assets of the Company, in both branches, as shown in the Balance Sheet, are £ 18,538,865, being an increase of £ 2.229,213 over those of 1892. The system of annual distribution of profits begun last year, having given satisfaction alike to Policyholders and Shareholders, the Directors have decided to continue it, and a complete valuation for the past year has been made. For this valuation the same mortality tables and rate of interest have been used as in previous years-namely, in the Ordinary Branch, the Insti- tute of Actuaries (HM.) Table of Mortality for the life risks, and Mr Finlaison's Government Annuity Table 1884 for the annuities, and in the Industrial Branch, Dr Farr's English Life Table No. 3. The net premiums only have been valued in both branches, the rate of interest in each case being 3 per cent. The results of the valuation are as follow :— In the ORDINARY BRANCH a surplus is shown of £442,930. This includes the sum of 470,000 brought forward last year, which it is now in- tended to increase to Z- 100,000. In the INDUSTRIAL BRANCH the surplus shown is £ 500,944, including the sum of £200,000 brought forward last year, which it is now in- tended to increase fco £ 360,000. The total surplus of the two Branches as shown by the valuation is thus £ 943,874. and, after carry- ing forward the sums of £ 100,000 and d6360,000 before mentioned, £483,874 is left for distribution among the participating Policyholders and Share- holders, in accordance'with the regulations of the Company under its special Act of Parliament. In carrying forward soi large a balance the Directors have adopted the same principles by which they were guided last year, but they anticipate that when the system of an annual valuation has had a longer trial it may be possible to modify this course. The processes and results of the valuation, which has been carried out by the Actuary, Mr F. Schooling, have been submitted to Mr A. H. Bailey, whose report is as follows The results of the valuation of the liabilities of your Company on the 31st Decem- ber, 1893, have been submitted to and ex- amined by me. •' The basis upon which the valuations have been made, and the methods adopted in the process, are the same as upon the last occasion, and have my entire approval. And your resolution to retain a portion of the surplus in each Branch is, I think, judicious, having regard to the extent of the Company's liabilities." The Balance Sheet has been submitted to Messrs. Deloitte, Dever, Griffiths and Co., whose Certificate is appended to the accounts. Extract from the Report of Mr. F. SCHOOLING, the Actuary to the Company. ORDINARY BRANCH.-The number of Life Policies in force at 31st December, 1893, was 335,176, assuring, with bonus, £37,672,474, and producing a premium income of £1,896,758 per annum. After providing for all liabilities, there remains a surplus of £442,J30, which includes the sum of £ 70,000 brought forward from last year. INDUSTRIAL BRANCH.—The number of Policies in existence at 31st December last was 10,473,393, including 338,272 Free or Paid-up Policies, and the amount assured, £ 101,820,883. The weekly premiums receivable in respect of these Policies amounted to J6 80,094 per week, or £ 4.164,888 per annum. After providing for all liabilities there remains a surplus of £500,944, which includes the sum of £ 200,000 brought forward from last year. Over £ 1,200.000 is reserved in respect of Free Policies granted in lieu of discontinued assurances, and to provide for the increase in the sums assured given to Policyholders.

THE MORALITY OF THE CHILDREN OF BARRY. SOME hard, yet true, things were said by the members of the deputation which waited upon the School Board on Mon- day evening last with reference to the proposed establishment of a system of moral lessons in the schools under the jurisdiction of that authority. It was pointed out by two or three of the speakers that the morality of the children of the Barry district was at a very low ebb indeed. We fully concur with the opinion thus expressed, and venture to go a step in the direction of pointing to the cause of this unfortunate state of things. To our mind there can be no doubt that the withdrawal of scriptural instruction from our elementary schools has been the direct cause of the ignorance and corrup- tion which characterise a large propor- tion of the qhildren of the present day. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom," and unless this fear is in- stilled in a proper manner into the infant; mind, the beginning of wisdom-so far as it particularly applies to morality— certainly cannot be accomplished by means of our day schools. We would be the last to encourage a system of religious instruction in public schools, but we maintain that the morality of our children will continue to decline as long as the teaching of the Bible is so largely withheld from the rising generation.
LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES. The Liberal Hun- dred of the Barry THE BARRY LIBERAL district hold a meeting HUNDRED'S MONTHLY monthly at Barry MEETING. Dock for the purpose of discussing political subjects, but for some reason or other they prefer to conceal their light under the bushel of obscurity." A representative of the Barry Dock News pre- sented himself at the meeting last Monday evening, but, upon the advice of the chairman, Mr J. C. Meggitt, he was at once requested to withdraw. Why this should be the case we do not know. This, however, we desire to point out. The columns of the Barry Doclc News are open at all times for the publication of reports of meetings of both political parties, and, being an independent paper, we venture publicly to de- clare that we have never made the slightest attempt to show partiality towards one party or the other. We cannot understand, therefore, the reason why Mr Meggitt should advise the Barry Liberals in the manner he did this week. The company of Welsh- men and others assembled "WALES, A NATION." round the festive board at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock, on the even- ing of St David's Day, must have been as- tounded at a remark made by one of the speakers-an ex-secretary of the Young Wales Society-to the effect that he had not a very clear notion of what constituted a nation, and that the term appeared to him to be one of the numerous class of words of which any use desirable might be made, and no proper or exact use at all. As member of the Young Wales" Society, Mr Thomas must have known that one of the main objects of this institution is the cultivation of a feeling of distinct nationality amongst the members, and that unless Wales is, to all intents and purposes, a separate and distinct nation the national movement in the Principality is simply a myth. Speaking at a meeting of the Technical Instruction Committee at Swansea last week, Lord Swansea (nee the well-known Sir Hussey Vivian), referring to the agitation re- cently instituted for a University College for that town, said You will not get another grant from the Government they won't give it to you. They strained a point to make grants for Wales at all. In England they do not do so. In Scotland and in Ireland they do— and they classed Wales for the time being as a separate nationality, and gave us our grant." This is a conclusive expression of the modern-day feeling of leading representative Welshmen so far as "Wales, a Nation," is concerned, and Mr Thomas would do well to "read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the opinions of Lord Swansea and other great veterans of G'ymi'ii Vydd before he again launches out upon insinuations of meaning- less patriotism, which are naturally distasteful, not only to Welshmen, but to Irishmen and Scotchmen as well. What would other- wise doubtless have THE FOOTBALL SCANDAL proved an interesting AT CADOXTOX-BAI;K Y. league match between the Cardiff and Barry District A.F.C.'s, at the Witchill Athletic Ground, Cadoxton, last Saturday was, to say the least' spoilt by the dis- graceful conduct of one of the Cardiff players. It appears that some of the players have, on certain grounds, been induced to leave the Barry District Club and play for Cardiff early this season. On this ground the Barry officers have been careful not to select either of these men ever since. Riled at this, the three men apparently were determined last Saturday to ride rough-shod over the home team. Affairs, however, did not reach a crisis until Joe Woodneld conceived the blackguardly trick of aiming two fierce and unprovoked blows at the little Barry player, Griffiths. This brought matters to a head, and play wa.s at once stopped, both spec- tators and teams insisting upon the referee ordering Woodfield off the ground. Mr Benjamin Lewis, a member of the Local and School Boards, was amongst the spectators, and that gentleman stated that more dis- graceful and scandalous conduct than that of the coward named he had never seen in his life. We feel strongly on the matter ourselves. Unless members of contending teams can "play the game" they must be taught that they have no right whatever to indulge in horse-play." We hope, therefore, the matter will be brought before the South Wales Union, and if the charge against him is proved a sound example should be made of the offender.
BARRY AND PENARTH LOCAL BOARDS. NO ELECTION THIS YEAR. An order has this week been issued by the Local Government Board to the effect that under the Local Government (Parish Councils) Act, 1894, the annual election in connection with the Local Boards of the Barry and Penarth districts will not take place this year in April, the authorities named to continue in office till November, when the first election under the new Act being fixed for November next Further comments on this subject will appear in our next issue.
BARRY AND CADOXTON LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. A meeting of the above association was held on Monday evening last at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock, when there were present:—Alderman J. C. Meggitt (in the chair), Dr Kelly, Messrs W. Miller, J. H. Jose (treasurer), H. Inch, W. J. Flowers, W. Dooley, T. Waite, T. Coslett, T. Clarkj H. H. Russell, Summers, F. Huelin, George Best, E. J. Thomas, D. Morgan, D. Hamer. W. Howard, S. Griffiths, Thomas Evans, M. McGregor, J. McGregor, W. Hookway, and R. G. Russell, Pal- merstown (secretary). Messrs J. Rees and Hunt, Barry, were elected members of the Liberal Hnndred, and delegates to the South Glamorgan Three Hundred. The President, after a warm eulogy on the character and achievements of the late leader of the Liberal party, proceeded to give a brief resume of the action of the House of Lords during the past session of Parliament on the-(l) Home Rule Bill; (2) the Betterment Clauses (3) Royal Charter for Welsh University; (4) the Employers' Liability Bill (5) the Parish Councils Bill. Regarding the action of the Lords on the Employers' Liability and the Parish Councils Bill, Mr Meggitt showed the whole action of their lordships was directed against the welfare of the working classes. After short speeches by Messrs H. Inch, Dr Kelly, T. Coslett, H. H. Russell, W. Miller, J. H. Jose, and W. J. Flowers supporting- the speaker, the President expressed a hope that these monthly meetings of th^ Liberal Hundred would prove conducive to the spreading of Liberal principles and the general welfare of the district. A vote of thanks to the president concluded the proceedings.
STUNG BY AN ADDER AT BARRY. A LAD SERIOUSLY INJURED. On Saturday morning last a lad named John Blackmore, eldest son of Mr Edwin F. Blackmore, Windsor-road, Barry, was playing near Cold Knap in company with his brother and two other lads when a large adder suddenly stung him on the leg. The lad being afterwards unable to walk, two men were fetched and he was carried home, where he was attended to by three doctors, but we understand the unfortunate lad's leg is still in a bad condition.
MEAN THEFTS AT BARRY DOCK. A mean theft was committed during the past week on the west breakwater at Barry Dock by some persons unknown. The lighthouse-keeper's boat was cut adrift, and twenty fathoms of rope were stolen from the moorings, the boat being left to drift on the rocks. This is a common occurence in connection with the small boats outside, and it is hoped that the thefts will be soon put a stop to.
