The CHAIKMAN, in opening the meeting, ob- served that Ivoritism was making rapid strides in America, but he regretted that the progress of the order in Wales was not so great as could be de- sired. Tne order in Wales now consisted of over 20,000 members, and the funds on the 1st Jan., 1882, were over £116,800, He referred to the desirability of forming a funeral fund in connection with each district. He feelingly alluded to the illness of the unity secretary, and to the connection of Dr Price with the order. The reports of the auditors were ordered to be printed and circulated among the lodges. On the proposition of the Rev Dr Price, a letter of tympathy was sent to Mr George, the secretary, in his severe and protracted illness. A proposi- tion from the Brecon district, in reference to in- serting the amount of contributions, was passed. The communication from Aberdare, commending the adoption of a neve form of annual return, was withdrawn. On the motion of Mr Thomas Williams, Aberdare, seconded by a repre- sentative from Aberavon, the secretary and assist- ant secretary were instructed to draft a form of keeping accounts for the guidance of lodge secre- taries. Cowbridge district was selected to appoint the junior auditor for the ensuing year. The next annual conference will be held at Llanelly. Mr Thomas Williams, Aberavon, was unanimously appointed president for the forthcoming year. The candidates for the vice presidency were Messrs William Rees, Mae&teg D. P. Lewis, Ystrad Rhondda J. Howell, Aberdare and T. Evans, Troedyrhiw. Mr Howell was elected. The proceedings terminated with the usual votes of thanks.
