An abstract of the annual report of
The Sun Life Assurance Company of
Canada for 1S97, which appears in this
paper, is deserving of more than a cur
sory glance. It will be seen that the
Company has made very substantial
progress during the' year, and is going
forward on safe lines by leaps and
In 1S72 the total income was $48,210;
in 1S84 it was $278,379; in 1S92 it was
$1,134,807, and in 1S97 it was $2,23S,S94.
In the same space of time the assur
ance in force and assets advanced in
a similar ratio. The assurance in
force has grown from $1,004,350, in
1S72, to $44,953,790, in 1S97; and the
assets from the modest sum of $96,401,
in 1S72, to the ample amount given in
the report for 1S97 $7,322,371.
After meeting all the liabilities of
last year, including the payment of
$403,674 for matured endowments and
deaths claims and $217,377 for profits,
there remains a surplus, as regards
policyholders, of $314,220. The surplus
over all liabilities, according to the
Canadian Government standard is
$5S3,271, while the surplus, as regards
policyholders, by the Canadian stand
ard, amounts to $688,272.
The general showing is one on which
the policyholders, directors and man
agement have much cause for self
congratulation. The Company is represented in the
Islands by Bishop & Co., Bankers, Honolulu.
Will Reside Here.
Mrs. G. A. Ingalls, widow of a former
American Consul in Samao, through
her agent, now in the city, has pur
chased the property immediately .ad
joining the Parmalee premises on the
Ewa side of Beretania street and will
soon erect a residence there. The sum
paid was $5,000. Mrs. Ingalls is not in
Honolulu at the present time but will
very likely move here.
