THE EARL OF SHAFTESBURY.
Our cable newo reports the death
of the veteran Earl of i?u&ftesbury,
ut tho ripo ngo of 84 years. No
mnn during tho half century has
taken a moro active pait in the reli
gious and social movements of the
mother country than ho; and no
man wa9 more highly esteemed for
his consistent Christian life, his devo
tion of humanity, and his long con
tinued efforts to ameliorate the
sufferings and promote tho wellbeing
of his fellow creatures. He belonged
to the evangelical party in tho
Church of England, and while taking
an active part in the affairs of that
church, he was always ready to act
in concert with men of other reli
gious bodies in the establishment
and working of organizations having
for their sole object the present and
future happiness of the community.
He entered Parliament as Lord
Ashley in 1826, and represented suc
cessively Woodstock, Dorchester and
Bath. In 1851 he succeeded his
father in the peerage. He was Lord
of the Admiralty in Sir Robeit Peel's
Administration in 1834-5, aud took
charge of the Ten Hours Bill. When
Sir Robert again took ofllce in 1841
he refused to join the Government
on finding that the Premier's views
would not permit him to support that
bill. In public life Lord Shaftes
bury always acted with great inde
pendence. The chief object for
which he labored in season and out
of season was the improvement of
tho condition of the working classes,
who will mourn his death as that of
one of their best friends. Sydney
TRADE UNIONISM IN AUSTRALIA.
For something like 40 years trade
unionism had been known in New
South Wales, but it received its
great impetus after the rush to the
goldfields in 1851. The new El
Dorado attracted scores of the lead
ing spirits of trade unionism in the
old country, and thousands of the
rank and file also found their way
out here. When these men returned
to their ordinary vocations, they
soon began to establish trade so
cieties, and the result was that in
both Melbourne and Sydney trade
unionism began active operations
about tho year 1854. For a time it
was uphill work keeping the socie
ties together, but tho establishment
of the eight hour system very
materially aided the cause. It has
made great progress in Victoria,
where now, including the miners,
thre are something like 23,000 mem
bers of trade societies. In New
South Wales, also, including the
miners, there are fully 18,000 en
listed beneath the banner of trade
unionism. One of the strongest
societies here, the shipwrights, was
started in 18G2, in the kitchen
of an old Thames shipwright at Bal
main. This society has now more
than 2000 to its credit in bank.
The engineers, a branch of the
famous Amalgamated Society, are
also very strong in Sydney. The
seamen also have about 2000 in
bank. The Hunter River miners
are the strongest organization in
point of numbers, and have fre
quently demonstrated their power
in strikes. Altogether there are
about 30 societies established in
this colony, 22 of whom arc repre
sented in the Trades and Labor
Council, which may be regarded as
the Parliament of labor. There is
also a body called the' Trades Hall
committee, which has already se
cured a sito for a hall, and is now
endeavoring to raise funds for the
building. The Maritime Labor
Council is a body composed of dele
gates from the various organizations
of men employed at sea or around
the wharves. Trade unionism is
well established throughout New
Zealand, and is making good pro
gress in South Australia, Queens
land and Tasmania. The congress
to be held to-morrow will embrace
delegates from all theso colonies.

The steady advancement of this Com.

any of our drivers will, on application
to our office, have tho overcharge
promptly returned. Tho object of tho

THE undersigned, n Committee of Di
rectors of the L'quitable Life As
surance Society of tho United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to tho public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the approv
ed formB of aisuiance, including Ordi.
nary Life, Ei dowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; are lndis
putable after three years and pa) able
immediately after proof of death.
8d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while tho latter is only pay.
able in tho event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy lias the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and the accu
mulated profits in rash at the end of a
stated period ; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aie past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experienoe shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about tho interest
on tho premiums.
5th Tontine policies, like others, are
paid In full in tho event of death at any
time during tho term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
0th Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontino policy
holders, as 'the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider,
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfeitable under tho laws of tho
State, if so dislred nt tho time the as
surance is effected,
8th Tho Tontino system is fair and
just; Its accounts are nccurutely kept,
separate fiom all other business; tho
funds judiciously Invettcd and Improv
cd, and tho accumulated profits faith,
fully guarded and properly nppoitioned.
0th The Society bus since its organi
zation transacted a larger amount of
new business Hum nny other company,
while its new bublness for tho first half
of thoprcsint yiuris $1,760,000 larger
than that of tho flist half of 1881. It
has Assets of $CQ,000.000; over $14 000,
000 of Surplus, and is ratio of Surplus
to Liability is greater llian Hint of any
