the following report on the operation of the Medical and Hospital

It will bo notfed from the foregoing that the loss for the year
1930 of $12,557.16 is the lowest to
be reported since the Hospital and
Medical Agreement went iuto
effect on January 1st, 1922.
The Hospital Building and
Equipment have been well kept up
during the year, repairs and re
placements being made where
necessary.
The following list covers the
main items:
Additional X Ray Equipment
Buckey Diaphragm.
Doctors' Offices, Operating Room
and Public Ward Bathroom re
painted.
Thorough examination and repair of electric lights and bells.
Re-building of outside approach
steps to Women's Ward.
The Hospital linen stock was
replenished from time to time in
the ootirse of the year by purchases
direct from the wholesalers, the
larger items consisting ot the
following:
3 dozen Pyjamas
1 dozen Night Shirts
3 dozen Bed Spreads
4 dozen Sheets
9 pairs Blankets
1 dozen Surgeons' Coats
The comparative statement of
Hospital Revenue, Expense and
Net. Loss for the years 1929 to
1930 will give the Members of the
Association a clear picture of the
operation of the Hospital and
Medical Agreement for this period.
As a means of distinguishing the
cost of operating the Hospital
proper as apart from that of the
Hospital and Medical Agreement
as a whole, the financial statement
has been divided into two sections,
the first covering the oost of operating the Hospital and the second
the
two
give
the
the cost of carrying out
Medical Agreement. These
costs are then combined to
the total cost of operating
Hospital and Medical Agreementv
Medical supplies and drugs have
been split between the Hospital
operation and Medical Agreement
on a 20%—80% basis, which split
was made by the Medical Superin
tendent.
The remaining costs are direct
charges to either operation, and
the cost per patient-day of the
Hospital operation is what might
be called the cost per patient-day
of hospital nursing, exclusive of
medical salaries and is, comparable
with most public hospitals iu the
Province.
The iiet loss fdr the year on the
whole operation of the Medical and
Hospital agreement amounted to
$12,557.16, as compared with $16,-
744.80 for the previous year, a
decrease of $4,187.64.
The Board of Directors, before
closing their report, would like to
thank the Hospital Staff for the
fine manner in which the Medical
aud Surgical service has been
oarried out during the period just
ended.
The work carried on by the
Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary and the
many donations of comforts made
to patients is much appreciated by
the Board and they would like to
extend their thanks to the Auxil
iary for the very fine efforts put
forth in assisting the Hospital.
Many comforts for the patients
were also received by the Hospital
from the local Lodges, as well as
from the people of Alioe Arm, and
the Board would like to take this
opportunity of thanking them for
their kindness.

Tells About Benefits Of
Organization
Residents of Anyox and Alice
Arm are not unfamiliar with The
Family Beneficiary Society of Vancouver, B. G, which has just issued
ts new booklet calling attention to
the virtues of that Society. The
new booklet which will be di-tri-
luted to old as well as new members of the Society is an attractive
brochure and gives concrete in
stances of the benefit to the public
which this Society claims.
"What Could You Do With
$2500 Cash?" asks the title page of
the new booklet.
Well, certainly $2500 cash could
come in mighty handy to almost
anyone in Anyox and Alice Arm.
Especially when funeral expenses
are faced along with other debts.
The booklet explains just how
the Society can afford to issue
insurance policies at a low rate.
This is all summed up under the
heading of "no high salaried officials, no staggering overhead expenses." That alone seems to tell
the story. Just how the securities
of the Society are handled to provide safety for the policy holder is
told in the publication which also
contains several strong letters, not
the least of which is one by Mrs.
Adabel O'Connor, of Alice Arm,
whose husband lost his life in the
Bonanza disaster at Anyox last
November. It is announced that
W. C. Grover, agent of the Society
will be in Anyox for the next two
weeks.

Parliament Will Discuss
Many National
Questions
Ottawa, February 21: (Special to
the Herald.) The first regular
session of Parliament under the
premiership of lit. Hon. R. B.
Bennett which will open on March
12, gives promise of being one of
the most important as well as one
of the most interesting in Dominion history.
Legislation to implement many
of the pre election pledges of the
premier will be introduced. Under
this heading action will be takon
to relieve the provinces of the burden of old age pensions, to iuitiate
the National Highway plan, and
to restore grants in aid of technical
education. Provision will also be
made to cope with continued problems of unemployment and to
assure seed and feed to distressed
agriculturalists as well as to extend aid to those farmers wishing
to engage in mixed farming.
Of primary, interest, of course,
will be the revision of tariff. A
committee of the cabinet started
work on February 17 on a series of
tariff hearings where all those interested in changes will be heard.
Agricultural and farm products
items are now under consideration.
The committee may continue its
hearings after Parliament meets as
evidence can be heard until immediately before the budget is presented.
It will be necessary to vote
money for the public service before
March 31 and for this reason the
estimates for the year are likely to
be placed before the house very
early in the session. Then, as is
customary, a bulk vote of a twelfth
or a sixth of the total will be asked
to enable public business to go on
until the detailed votes can be
passed and considered.
The cabinet is holding almost
daily sittings in preparation for
the session which will certainly not
end until July and may go over
until fall. The latter is improbable,
however, in view of the fact that
no additional indemnity would be
likely for an adjourned session and
tha Government hopes to clear the
legislative decks to permit undivided attention to the Imperial economic conference in Ottawa this
fall.

itudes of tbe past year.
Dr. Dunbar pointed out that the
merits of the advance assessment
plan has been demonstrated, and
that now the Society was enabled
to pay each $2500 claim in full.

ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX   HERALD,   Saturday, February 28,  1931
Civil servants and government
employees in British Columbia
have hitherto been immune from
garnishee of the wagos. If a bill
brought in by Attorney General
Pooley passes the Legislature the
exemption will be removed.
At the Provincial Tubercular
Sanatorium at Tranquille there
are 330 patients and a waiting list
of between 75 and 100. There are
in attendance 38 graduate nurses
including the matron and two
trained dietitians. By the economies introduces! the per capita
cost of maintaining patients has
been reduced from $3.83 to $2.90
per day.
Victoria—Gauged by the record
of its four basic industries of lumbering, agriculture, mining and
fishing, British Columbia has come
through an extremely difficult year
very well. It is estimated that the
four basic industries returned
something like $226,000,000, which,
is only slightly less than the previous year's figure of $248,000,000

NOTES  FROM DIRECTORS'
REPORT
In a year in which all classes of business have
encountered many difficulties, the Company has
made gratifying progress. New policies paid for
show an increase of $51,227,652.32, both the
ordinary and group departments making substantial gains.
Total assurances in force show an increase of
$462,464,542.58. This gain represents a very
high rate of persistency, indicating the high value
placed by our policyholders on their contracts
with the Company in a period of extreme financial
pressure.
The number of policies and group.assurance
certificates outstanding passed the million mark
during the year.
The total net income shows an increase of
$13,804,544.54.
The total payments to policyholders and beneficiaries since organization . . . equal the total
assurances in force in the Company's fiftieth year
(ten years ago).
The mortality among our policyholders has
been highly favourable.
The rate of interest earned on the mean invested
assets was 6.44 per cent.
Profits paid to policyholders during the year
amounted to $25,641,231.04.
In a year of almost unprecedented business depression the outstanding quality of the investments has been strikingly shown. The actual
cash dividends received on the total common
stocks held by the Company were $969,103.84
in excess of the dividends payable on those identical shares in 1929. •. ■ Even on the basis of the
low prices at the close of the year our common
stock holdings show a substantial excess of market
value over cost.
Profits to policyholders entitled to participate
during the ensuing year will be again allotted on
the scale at present in operation.
The special Maturity Dividend is also continued on the basis announced last year.

Mock Parliament Proves
Very Interesting
At the Mook Parliament held
last Thursday, the Minister of
Labor introduced a Bill for the
relief of unemloyed by compulsory
unemployment insurance. The
Bill being discussed by the Committee of the Whole was passed.
Interest grows in the Mock Parliament each session and there will
no doubt be a bigger attendance
on Thursday, March 5th. when a
bill relative to Oriental Immigration will be introduced by tlie
Hon. member from the Mine Constituency, Mr. T. J. Kirkwood.

Life assurance has now, apparently, reached such a point in public
estimation and confidence that it seems comparatively immune from the
ordinary vagaries and fluctuations of other lines of business. The Sun
Life Assurance Company of Canada, whose report appears elsewhere in
this issue, seems to enjoy this public confidence to an unusual degree, for
it reports new policies written during the year to the net amount of
«ver $700,000,000, the largest in
the company's history of sixty
years.
This year it celebrates its diamond jubilee. A graphic picture of
its progress is shown in the report
which discloses, decade by decade,
its growth from assurances in force
in 1880 of less than $4,000,000 to
over $2,800,000,000 today; and of
an accumulation of assets from less
than $500,000 in 1880 to nearly,
$590,000,000 at the present time.
Even more striking is the fact that
the company has paid to policyholders and beneficiaries since its
organization over half a billion
dollars—more than its entire assurance in force over ten years ago.
This is almost magical and helps to
explain the widespread faith of
ordinary men in life assurance from '■ °. MACAULAY
the standpoint of investment as well       Sun Li(e Assurance'Colpany ol Canada
as of family protection.
A most interesting feature of the
report relates to the company's
investments. The Sun Life has
long been a consistent and successful investor in high grade stocks.
These securities are valuated on the
last day of each year by the Canadian department of insurance on the
basis of their market price on that
day. Such a test this year, needless to say, was a most exacting
one. Yet even at the abnormally
low prices prevailing at the end of
the year the company's common
stock holdings, taken by themselves
showed a substantial excess over
cost. Moreover, the actual cash
dividends paid during 1930 on the
total common stocks held by the
company in the previous year were
nearly $1,000,000 in excess of the
dividends paid on these identical
shares in 1929.
