SWANSIA SAVINGS SANK. SIR JNO. LLEWELYN PRESIDES AT ANNUAL MEETING. TRANSFERS FROM POST OFFICE CREATE A RECORD. The annual meeting of the Swansea Sav- ings Bank was held at Heathfield-street on Thursday, when there were present:—Sir John T. D. Llewelyn, Bart. (president), Lord Glantawe (vice-president), Rev. Evan Jenkins, Messrs. Roger Beck and Rennard 'Simpson (trustees), W. F.. Harris, C. T. Ruthen, D. C. Jones, W. G. Davies, F. F. Maeon and Ernest Davies (managers), E. H. Corby (actuary), and W. B. Laws (auditor). Apologies were announced from Mr. C. Variables Llewelyn, the Hon. Odo Vivian, Ptean of St. David's, Vicar of Swansea, Principal Salmon, Messrs. John Robert.s, T. W. James and J. H. R. Riteon. The report has already been published, ant the Actuary, 1J1 submitting it, observed tnat- included in the £88,104 deposits during the year was £¿,030 9s. 6d., transfers from the Post Oince; which was quite a record, and more than double that of the previous year, which it was then thought would not be exceeded. Sir Jno. Uewelyn said it did not require many words to state has satisfaction at the progress th" bank was making, in the able hands of Mr. Corby. (Hear, hear). Nine uiidred and fifty-one new accounts meant an increase in the vear of 466, bringing the ^V3,1 UP to 10,458, and the number of re- o^pts during the ye;w--ll,57o—had only once been exceeded, and that was in the u^' Actuarv had already saJd, th« transfers from the Post Office was a record, and it would be very interesting to see wither that was maintained or not. branch at Pontardawe. opened in July, had been a success, and he thought the whole report indicated satisfactory progress. He hoped that the SPIRIT OF THRIFT, ONCE INCUL- GATED in he minds of the people, would continue. a great satisfaction to know that the oank was continuing in its excellent work, an he hoped it might continue in the same direction for nnuiy years. (Hear, hear). j.oro GLANTAWE AND THE SPIRIT OF THRIFT. Lord Giantawe seconded and attributed much of the success of the bank to the fact that tibe actuary had the real interest of the institution at heart. Looking at the classi- fication of the accounts, it was of interest to note that the large number of 4,030 ac- counts had a balance of not over £ 1? tha* that showed how deeply the spirit of th- 1ft was among those who could only spare a very small amount to set aside for a rainy day. Tben there was the large number wh,) had deposited between £50, and £100, and here they had 1.045 depositors. An other gratifying feature was the fact that the Trustees' Savings Banks were holding their own as indicated by the transfers from the Post Office. The report was adopted. Thanks were accorded the treasurers, Lord Glantawe and Mr. Frederick Edwards, on the proposition of the Rev. Evan Jenkins, seconded by Mr. D. C. Jones. A similar compliment was paid to the managers, on the proposition of Lord Glan- tawe, second«l by the Rev. Evan Jenkins. The president moved the re-appointment of the auditors. Mr. Simpson seconded, a.nd ii was agreed to. Mr. Mason proposed the re-election of Mr R. D. Burnie as trustee, wtio he hoped would soon be restored to health. Mr. Ernest Davies seconded and it WaEí carried. In moving a vote of thanks to the presi- dent Mr. Roger Beck observed that there were 3,000 people who on an average had invested 30s. each in the bank, and he was sump-that it gave no one greater sure than the President to find that the I working classes practised thrift 90 thoroug y well. (Hear, bear.) Mr. Ruthen seconded and the vote was carried by acclamation. The President briefly acknowledged.
