Equitable Life Ass
Society of the limited States.
An Eminently Gonserv iiivc and Safe Company.
Tho consideration of dial Importance iu judging of the condition of
any financial institution (anil notably of a life assurance company, the ma
jority of whoso contracts extend over long periods of years) is its surplus
strength. The Equitable lias, over and above all liabilities, n larger sur
plus than any other assurance company.
Assets, Dec. 31, 1891, - - $136,198,518.38
LIABILITIES, including the Rcsarvo on all existing Policies, (4
per cent. Standard) and Special Reserve (toward the es
tablishment ol a 3'v, por cent, valuation) ol $1,500,000 109,905,537.82
This Surplus remains after making provision for every obligation, on a
rigid calculation of Liabilities based on the standard prescribed by the In
surance Law of the State of New York, which assumes that Assets will bo
invested so m to realize interest ul the rate of -I per cent, per annum. In
addition to this, in a spirit of conservatism, the Directors of the Society,
on tho recommendation of its Finance Committee, have set aside a Special
Additional Reserve, looking towards even a more stringent and conservative
future standard of valuation than the law now prescribes.

Items under the head of "Postal
Bureau" now came up, the first being
Salary of Postmaster-General,
Rep. Wilder said that he was iu
favor of economy, and as a rule lie
would favor the recommendations of
the AVays and Means Committee who
had favored $G,000 for the salary.
He however looked upon the position
of Postmaster-General as in every
way as responsible as any of the
Cabinet positions. Did not think it
right and proper to cut those who
had charge of departments low down
in salary. He was in favor of and
moved the amount as presented in
Noble Macfarlanc considered the
recommendations made by the Com
mittee were, as a rule, sound, and
carried conviction with them. But
iu this instance they seemed to be
going in the face of their own report,
as they report that the Department
is well managed but postmasters un
derpaid. He would be opposed to
any attempt to cut down the salary
of such an edlcient odlcer in so im
portant a department. He was iu
favor of tho motion of Rep. Wilder.
The speaker also mentioned that the
Postmaster had charge also of two im
portant departments, viz., the Money
Order oflice and th6 Postal Saving
Bank, and the responsibilities of the
ollico were as great, in one sense, as
that of Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Minister Widemann made a state
ment to show the difference in re
sponsibility. Rep. Kanealii ivas in favor of tho
report of the item passing at $G,000
but his reasons were not interpreted.
Rep, Robert Wilcox said that at
lirst lie was in favor of the report of
tho Ways and Means Committee but
had noticed that tho Postmaster, in
salary, had been placed on a par with
llio chief clerk of tho Finance Olllce
and the chief clerk of the Supremo
Court. He did not consider that
right, especially as the responsibili
ties of tho Postmaster wcro in every
soiiso equal to those of a Cabinet olll
cer. In other countries, notably in
America, the Postmaster was a mem
ber of the Cabinet. The efforts of the
present Incumbent, Mr. Waller Hill,
had obtained reduction iu postal
rates between hero and JCimlami anil
also Australia. Ho not think lliut
tho coiiiiiiiiicu looked tit tills mutter
In the right light; if the I'ogtumulor
CiQiicral is not worth more limn a
chief cluck in a department it Is light
tlm committee should bay bo. iJo
favored tho itnm u In tltu Hill.
Nolilo Alurkiluti wild he mt
oiHMwl to imyliuj uuod muii like tlm
I'OHtlllllhlUr'UoilUllirgUud kttlllllM lint
llU Ull!ll liliU to LllOW ttliurg thy
muiiyy mm upiulnv fiui to do it
with. Am much in doubt that tho
Government can even pay these sala
ries. Regarded tho Registrar of
Finance as every bit as important an
ollico as the Postmaster ; the salary
was put at SG000 because it was all
the Government could afford.
Noblo Homer said that there wa9
no ono present who was more of an
admirer of the admirable manner in
which Postmaster-General Hill con
ducted his department than he. Ho
was a friend of Mr. Hill but when
it became necessary to act for tho
whole country, as tho committee did
in placing this salary at SG000,
friendship don't count for much.
Mr. Hill appreciated the situation
and ho believed that the Postmaster
would do just as good and as faith
ful work for S100O.
Noble Cornweli (.soMo ww) Yes,
because you fellows go down there
and biilldose him into it.
Noble Homer (continuing) Wo
must endeavor to keep within bounds;
if wc are not able to pay whan the
interest on our public debt becomes
due or prevent our bonds from lie
coming delinquent then wo will be
come like Turkey
Noble Marsdeu (promptly) Like
Noble Horner Yes, like Egypt,
and then wc will find England step
ping in and taking our custom-house
and other sources of revenue.
The motion to pass at S 7,000 was
lost and on motion of Minister Wide
mann the item was passed, after three
counts, at $0,500.
On motion action on the next item,
"salary clerks," was deferred.
At 4.05 the Committee rose and
Rep. Smith reported action taken.
Notices of meetings of Committees :
Judiciary, the Molokai Committee,
Commerce, Military, and Peter Lee
Road, were announced, after which
the Assembly, at 1:10, adjourned.
