Ferndale Industrial Co-Operative Society. A MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS. On Wednesday evening, at the Trerhondda. Chapol Vestry, a general meeting of the share- holders of the above society was held to hear the report and statement of accounts for the last quarter. Mr J. Griffith Jones, of the firm of Messrs Jenkins and Jones, Chartered Ac. countants, Cardiff, read the statement of ac- counts in English, and the secretary, Mr James J Jenkins. in Welsh. Mr Thomas George, chairman of the committee, presided over the meeting. The chairman, in his address, con- gratulated the society upon the very prosper- ous trading of the last quarter. They were to-day, although of late years they had been subjected to very adverse circumstances, upon a sound financial basis. Since the ending of the liquidation about three years ago they had prospered by leaps and bounds. (Hear, hear). They had during this period redeemed all their liabilities. The last instalment of a mortgage of E4,000 with the London and Pro- vincial Bank, Ltd., was paid last quarter. They had also reduced during that time the-sundry debtors, which once stood over E2,000, to a little amount over £ 100. This, he considered, \la3 marvellous work, after considering the difficulties the members had to oontend with during the time of the recent coal struggle.and what was most pleasing of all wa" that all the debt incurred by members in that period was to-day cleared within about £60. (Applause). The membership at the end of the quarter was 1.078, being a nett increase of 37 members from the previous quarter. The outcome of their prosperity, he contended, was the loyalty ar.d unanimity that prevailed amongst them as members. This was always essential to the success of any society, and that there was al- ways strength in the combination of forces. It behoved them again in the future to give the same unanimous support; as by their unity and steadfast working the prosperity of the society was guaranteed. (Applause). The accounts were as follows:— £ 18,619 ,4s 10bd, with a nett profit of E3,500 9s 2d, to be dis- posed to members at 3s 6d in the £ in the grocery and drapery, and 4s 8d in the butch- ery. Cash in hand and bank, £ 5,934 9s, and the sundry creditors, P,568 18s 2d. The Re- serve and sinking fund were zE2,481 Is 5d, and the sundry debtors, £ 107 13s 7d. After the adoption of the report, the election of officers fthe Committee of Management was pro- ceeded with. Mr Thomas George resigned his position as chairman, and Mr Lewis Watkins was elected to fill the vacancy. The auditors Messrs Jenkins and Jones, Cardiff, were re- elected for the ensuing year. Votes of thanks were accorded the Committee of Management and the chairman for their services in the past, and the meeting concluded. I. "J1 'J IN

After the inner man had been replen- ished with the good things provided,a lengthy programme was subsequently submitted for the enjoyment of the evening. Mr Joseph Thomas acted in the capacity of p:anist. The musical portion of the programme was as follows: — Mi William Jenkins, Mountain Ash, sang "The Merry Party." in splendid style, and elicited a rcund of applause, and the "Death of Nelson,' bv Mr Thomas Owen, was much appreciated. M-- Jack Aust in "Let 'em all come and 'Theres cnlv one girl," was responsible for much laughter. The oldest inhabitant of Aber- cynon, in the person of Mr Walter Morgan, rendered a. Welsh song, "Tyr'd i ben y Myn ydd. The appcarance of his venerable per sonality was the outcome of signal applause. Mr Torn Jones gave "When London's fast asleep. and "I aÏnt agoing to tell," which met with much approval. "Goed old Raspberry'' was given in Mr Edgar Davies' beat style. What proved to be the tit-bit of the evening was that of the impersonation of characters by Mr Knox. who displayed much cleverness, ability, and keen observation of the particular p ,r.30ns. During this very interesting item the room was pervaded with laughter. Mr E H. Battram proposed the toast of the even- ing, Hearts of Oak Soceity." He said it gave him unbounded pleasure to perform that duty, and he regretted that he had not the privilege of beir.g a. member of this society. After particularising a few facts in connec- tion with the subject of the toast, he invited those present to drink to the health and pros- perity of the Hearts of Oak Society." Messrs Prosser and Lewis, from Mountain Ash and- Ynysybwl respectively, responded,and reviewed the history of ttyb society from the date of in- ception, which took place in London in a pub- i house called the Bird in Hand, in the year H:4Z It was stated that fifteen members were enrolled on this night, an thus gave the first impetus to a concern which was destined to reach its present size. Last year it had a membership of 230.000, and a reserve fund of a couple of millions. In the year 1892 the Society founded a Lifeboat. which was christened "The Hearts of Oak," and have en- dowed it since then with a large sum. Its very I'fme suggests a good omen, and it is pleasing to note en passant that the boat has been the means of saving scores of lives. Allusion was also made to the fight between the country- men and the Londoners, in which the former claimed equality of rights to representation in the administration of the work of the Society, which they evenetually succeeded in gaining. The speakers urged upon all who were not al- ready. members the necessity, advantages, and j benefits of so doing. The remaining toasts were in capable hands, and a pleasant evening was experienced.
Maypole Dairy Company5 Limited. The first annual meeting of the above com- pany was held at the London Offices cn Thurs- day. The chairman said that since the balance sheet had been made up to Deccmbsr 31s last, they had received from their shareholders tilt- balance of the remaining ±0- per share on the Preference Shares, amounting tc E174.875,and the amount, together with th-L- 233,703 Ordinary Shares had enabled them to I.:ty the vendors the balance of the purchase money, and have £ 35.000 as extra working cap!t?.l. He thought this- put. a better aspect on their balance-sheet, as perhaps some of their shareholders might think that the cash in hand was a small a.mount. Since their company was started in July last they had opened nin; new branches, up to December 31st. and since the last named date, they had opened nine ocher shops, and others were in process of br.ing fitted up. They hoped to make judicious c::tensions in the future. With regard to dividend en the Ordinary Shares, they were not prepared to pay that, as they had not been allcltcd, but they had been allotted since. They p oposed to write £ 10,000 off the Goodwill, 10 place £ 5.000 to the Reserve Fund, and they had also set aside L479 as accrued dividend cn the Preference Shares from the date of allotment. During the six months of the Company's working, the) had added £ 12,211 to the amount of the assets, and they had written off f5 .319 for depreeia-' tion. The large amount of the additions was due to the opening of the 11 w shops, which 01 course entailed the expenditure of extra capi- tal. The warehouse and ofiiees in Copenhagen, the fourteen creameries in Ireland, were in a very satisfactory stale. During the past six months the Company hid purchased the freehold premises in Oldham and Preston. They had also made purchases of freehold pro- perty in Newcastle-on-Tyr.e, Swindon, and Hull. They intended in the future to utilise the Reserve Fund in purchasing freehold pro- perty as opportunity offered. The report and accounts were alopted unani- mously.
