One of them named Williams, a boy between 17 and 18, ventured to the centre and went through. The ice on each side of the hole held, and lie grasped the edge. There was a great line and cry, and a. rope was thrown to him, but the effort was fruitless. A ladder was subsequently got, and by this means he was saved after being a considerable time in the water.

David Phillips. P.P.G.M. (Vicar of Newcastle). Dr. Allan Low, ami Mr. J. Sankey. Rev. D. Phillips proposed "The Munches- ter Unity. He said lie had taken a deep interest in' Cdklfe-Howship, and never since lie had pnt his hand to the plough had he. found any reason) to look back. They ought to teel proud to belong to :ch a strong Unity, which worked for the best interests of y-ju all five world over. (Hear, hear.) To join a Friendly Society was a ditTY of every man, and to belong to the Manchester Unity was to select the b-e-t Society. (Applause.) Numeri- cally and financially it was the strongest, and its work -was carried en on such a sound, safe- basis that unite need be afraid of joining it. He hoped that whatever legislation would bo parsed dealing with old age pensions, it would not punish the Friendly Society mm by giving tiiem simply the same pension as that to be received by the tli rift (Applause.) This should bo kept prominently before the powers that be." and he hoped they would do their duty towards the Frien.c-.iy Society members, wi.o. not only helped themselves, but helped others as well. (Applause.) The Board cf Guardians were not to take irto consideration in conn-action with an appli- cation for relief any grant from a. Friendly Society not exceeding .)6. a Meek, and ho hoped: the Legislature would adopt a similar policy m regard to the old age pensions. Mr. D. Williams (the Prov. C.S.), with whose name the toast was coupled, said the Manchester Unity stood pre-eminent among Friendly Societies—it was t'be richest, the largest, the .soundest, and the greatest Friendly Society in the world. (Applause.) This was no vain or empty boast, hut it was tn ily substantiated by tho annual reports of the Registrar of Friendly Societies. The Manchester 'Unity was initiated in 18.J2. and since then its progress had been phenomenal, and the re.if.on for this was that the. Society was founded cit sound financial principles which had been maintained all along the line, notwithstanding unfair competition, and other adverse circumstances. There wv.% no civilised part at the world where an Odd- fellow could not find a rcckf'. The member- ship to-day was lCidy 1J350,000; the total capital had just reached something like 13 £ millions; whiie sick and funeral benefits paid, according to tlie ir.o<t recent returns, to (Applause.) These figures spoke for themselves. The members received mo-e than 20 shillings for every pound paid in because of the care taken in Manchester of their finances, and the con- tinual increases made in the reserve funds, as a result of which they gave more in benefits than was actually received in contributions. (Hear, hear.) He was sorry that in the Bridgend district they were not making the progress they shouhL This was due in a measure to the unfa' competition of unregis- tered- societies, dividing societies, and slate clubs. To the honour of the Vicar of New- castle, it cc-uld bo said that he had always taken his place on the- s:de of sound socie- ties, but he was sorry the same could not re- said for an the other clergymen and Noncon- formist ministers in the district some of them gave active support to slate -fifths. These clubs pretended to be Friendly Socie- ties. but- bo contended they vere nothing of the kind. He thought they should take such steps as to bring all societies pretending to be Friendly Societies under the actuarial supervision of the Registrar of Friendly So- cieties. (Applause.) After speaking in tup- port of the Vicar of Newcastle's views regard- ing old age pensions. Mr. Williams referred to tho p-ronosal to form a superannuation fund, and exrres.vd the hone- that the Cardiff A.M.C. would cee the culmination cf the scheme. (Applau >e.) He concluded by ap- pealing for greater enthusiasm on the part of tlie various loci* officials. Mr. Sankey submitted ,¡ T1" Bridgend D:s- tinct." ard said no-one could deny that tho Society had. been of incalculable benefit in the Bt'idg'cnd' district. An idea of the sn:r-ll- d-id "work accomplished could be gleaned*from the annual rrpcrt/i showing the moneys ex- pended1 ill- sick benefits and funeral claims. (Hear, hear.) The Chairman, responding, said the num- ber of members continued to '.Rcreas-e in the district, the total hav:n<r nrw reached- 1,610. (Applause.) Funeral c)'»im;» Irui been paid that d'f-y a.mountir o- to £ 250 cr.-d sick benefits totalled over £?,Of)-c. He was Tlad to 'an- nounce that a d'etre-- fund h.ad new been es- tablished for that district, and he had no donbt.it would prove a *rre:r^ boon. Mr. John Edwards (Denote Grand Master) proposed "The Visitors," ard Dr. Alien- Low\ in response, noint^d cut that clubs ar.A friendly societies were also in some reswei>* an advanx-a^e to the doctors, who were at f«ny rate snro of their money in attending friendly society ramh"1?.

A writes:—I believe, that, the War Office ■authorities arc not unfavourable to the pro- posal of making Wales proper the feeding ground for one cr the divisions for the new Territorial Army, and cutting off from it Shropshire, Herefordshire, and C'iushir- The officials at headquarters feel that it would greatly assist the recruiting for the Territorial Amy if behind' it tin. re lay a strong national sentiment. If the proposal be adopted Wales will provide 2-1.000 men for the Territorial Army, in addition to the coast- -d-nenco of Carnarvonshire and Anglesey.
