creased from 6j '911s, the pre-sent oul

of this mine is a very superior quality
of coal for domestic purposes, and the

filled Ita purpose. It has placed assurance upon a sound basiB, It has regulated the conduct of the companies, and
to some extent it Ims preserved the interests of policyholders. Siuce the
dace of the act, however, new conditions
have risen, methods have chausred and
practices .„ are customary which were
then unknown; moreover, life assurance
has expanded - and* developed
more rapidly than was anticipated.
When the act was passed there were
ten active Canadian life offices, now
there are twenty; then the anuual volume of life assurance was $35,000,000,
now it is 898,000,000; then the agnregate
assurance in existence in Canada was
$171,000,000, now it is 1588,000,000; then
the animal amduiit paid in premiums
by. policyholders was "$5,000,000, iiow it
is $.0,000,000; then the total assets of
Canadian companies amounted to f 13,-
000,000, now they amount to $91,000,*
000.
The present Investigation into life
assurance, iu Sew York by a legislative
coaimitteeof that state has strongly emphasized the .view heretofore expressed
in The Globe, viz., that the security of
policyholders is ample, that all the
companies which have been severely
criticized are possessed of good, sound
assets far in-* excess of their liabilities,
aud that policyholders who havo paid
several years' premiums In these com*
panics should not sacrifice' thoir contracts or become alarmed about their
duo fulfilment. The wrong which policyholders have suffered is that part of
their premiums, the care and InvoB*
ment of which should have been regard
ed by tbo management las a sacred
trust and returned to policyholders in
the shape of.profits or, surplus, hns been
utilized In extravagant and unwarranted expenses.: This condition, of course
can as yet be said to apply, to only, the
three or four large United- States, com
panies thus far investigated. : It" ia well
