WARNING TO THE WORKERS. TROUBLOUS TIMES AFTER THE WAR. SWANSEA SAYINGS BANK MEETING ADYICE. lne oath annual meeting oi t,h" Swansea Savings Rank was held on Thursday evening. Sir John T. D. Llewelyn, Hart, (the prcsi dpnt), was in the chair, and there were also present Mr. Roger Beck, Rev. and Hon. W. Talbot Rice, Rev. Evan Jenkins, and Mr. Rennard Sampson ^trustees), and Mr. F. F. Mason, Mr. W.E. Harris, Mr. Ernest Davies, and rincipa-l Trevor 0wen (mana- gers), Mr. W. Hig^mson (representing the auditors), and Mr. E. H. ('orby (the ac- tuary). The Very Rev. Dean of St. David's. Prin- cipal David Salmon, and Mr. C. T. Rutihen sent apologies. Proposing the adoption of the report, the President said there had been a small de- j creae during the year of £ 2,486, and this was almost enli1'dv due to Die gre-a?r ue cf the money in the War Loan. In fad, it was only a part of a very considerable amount ( £ 14,000) withdrawn for that pur pose. He was very pleased to say tha,t the balance due to the depositors amounted to so that the small decrease was I but a drop in the ocean. Still at the same time there was a point which he wished to make. Now that a. great many people in j the town and district were receiving larger waces than perhaps they had ever had fore, he thought it would be very desirable if a larger amount were deposited in their savings uaukE. And if any words of his had I any weight, ho hoped that people who found themselves with more money to spend would remember iha<t the time had really come ?'??" they should in- vest and fave the?' money il the Savings Bank '? view of the probabHity that wages would decrease atter wie war. wis strong advice to everybody was to remember that in all probability they would have very troublous times in the future, and so people I should be prepared for that rainy day. (Hear, { hear.) He continued They had put. in their report these words—" The benefit to the in- dividual depositor shown in that the de- posits are absolutely safe, are subject to no fluctuations in value and are always at call." That was an important point. Mr. Roger Beck seconded, and said that the remarks Sir John had made upon the position at the present time to many of the working classes were exceedingly to the point and ought to be very deeply con- sidered. They who were in a larg e way of business had been directed by the Govern- ment to bestow or present to the Govern- ment a considerable portion of the extra profits that they might be making through the increased prices owing to t.he war, but the Government had asked nothing of the kind from the working-classes for the in- creased wages that they were receiving through the war. On the contrary the Gov- ernment had asked them to investsuch pro- fits at a certain rate of in- terest. And if the employer was called upon to contribute largely to the Government for a benefit which he would never individu- ally see again, surely it ought to be a tempta- tion to the wage-earner who was getting in- crea.sed wages through the war to put by a reserve to meet the inevitable reaction that must come after the wax waa over. It was the duty-the absolute duty—of the working classes to provide for it and not, as he feared wAs now being done in too many cases, spend money as if the good wa g es were always going to last. (Hear, hear.) He uttered the most distinct warning to the work ing c lasses that THERE WAS GOIiNG TO BE A RE- ACTION, and it was their duty to provide for it. (Hear, hear.) The report was adopted. Mr. Ernest Davies proposed the re- appointment of Mr. F. AN". Gilbertson, Mr. Charles Venables Llewelyn, and Major- the Hon. Odo Vivian as trust-ees, Mr. W. E. Harr is seconded, and 'the reso- lution was agreed to. R&v. and ytion. Talbot Rioe proposed the re-appointment of the auditors (Messrs. Deloitte, Plender, Griffiths and Co.). Mr. Simpsom seconded. This motion was also agreed to. On the motion of the Rev. Evan Jenkins, seconded bv Mr. Rt}6er the hon solicitor (Mr. T. W. Barnes) and the managers were thanked for their attend- ance drnIin the. vear. Mr. F. F. La.on proposed a ??p ?.? th<u?s to Sir John Llewelyn for pre?idinc. and said that a.s ^ood wine needtcl presiding, i no busli so no words of his could add to the tbmk", ??! the admiration they all felt for t.h? man- net in which Sir John always GOnducted the bus.iii.ess of the meetings of the Bank. 'Hear, hear). Principal Trevor owen seconded, and said he hoped they would have the privilege of seeing Sir John in the cha-ir for many more ve.:M toO come. He wished Sir John a Happy ^lew "Year. The resolution was carried by acclama- tion, and the president briefly acknow- ledge4.
