r H £ T K I V, U Nh Zhc Uribune Tuetil.iv, December q. 191 ^ A 151 I.I. RELATING TO FRIENDLY SOCIETIES Before entering upon a dis( uston of this bill, we propose to take a cursory review of the great Friendly Society movement which has become a great economic power in other, and this, lands, and particularly the organizations which are the ob jeel of this bill. The Friendly Society Move mem may be traced t i the earl iett tinns o f which we haveany record. Joseph (in Egypt) was the president <>f one of the first Friendly Societies that we know anything about. This great Egyptian Friendly Society had millions of money as assets. When dark days came and the whole nation would have Starved if it had not been for the pro vision made for the future bv this society. The people I nothing to do but claim and gel the benefits of their th and forethought. The Bible puts it i < %  short phrase : "hi all the land of Egypt th n was bread." Friendly Societies akin to w bat we liave now existed i Thebes when Egypt was at the heigh 1 of us prosperity, tin they found their way into Ancient Greece, this is confirmed by the Greek writer Tbeophras tus, three centuries before the Christian era ; then, we find Paul the great Apostle making the following statement, "lie that pro vide th not for Ins own t and especially for those of Ins own household is worse than an infidel" ; the Apostle Ja n -. also says I 'rue religion and 'indefiled l : G id and the Father i< to visit the fattu and the widow in thire affliction." From tins we are of opin ion that the earl) Christians ouied the pi in mutu \] Assistance which is the • i tin feature of tin iation*. From < Srew e the thrift n menl spread to Imperi il R I Boui ished und< i I from Iv'oine the thrift spread to Not hern Kurope .m<\ when the Anglo Si IXOn ia e | aaie aS eini grants to Britain they formed their \ illage, trad i and other (iuil u tnear Ms ulti rtately became our English Municipal Institution. Ithei Guilds insured "Pay Mint during sickness." "Funeral I' Kpensfs" "Pensions in Old Age' & Many of the Trade guilds then established still exist M the "London Companies" "Worshipful Companies" &c. After the Norman Conquest many Guilds were formed for the promotion of religion, charitv or trade. In iM I taniel Defoe of "Robinson Crusoe" fame published "Essays on Projects" in which he advocated a plan for the formation of Societies lorn rj by mutual assurance for the re lief of the members in seasons ol distress" and mi doubt that ij led to th" formation of Life Insurance Comp mies, and also had its influence in the lor ui.iti >n of |'iiendly !s Among the earliest Friendly Socii ties \ is the W Htchnmkers Society established .'out tinMar 1700. The first Friend I j 9 i ie| \i was passed in tnglau I in i and came into operation on ist Januarj 1876 and a te isi d neu Act Cam into opera tiou oil 1st Jauuary. 1 s >; under these trillion is not compulsory. It is the mission of these so' ies :n general to elevate tlie tone ol public and private morals, and to endeavour to 1 ah/.e in all the arr tnge 11 suts >f life a truer seiitim -nt 1! pi a better ideal of Clmnt) and more enlightene I notions regarding man's relationship to Ins fellow men.

A light ensues in which Philip is beaten, and it causes a feeling of hate in his breast. Emily, however, makes them shake hands before going oil a bunting trip. Arriving at the log cabiu they are welcomed by then host who shows them a ie \ gun he has just purchased. In ex imining it, John accident: ally discharges it, killing their host. He is distracted with u'rief and Philip, seeing Ins opporiu* jnity, tells John to go away, 1ave him a clear field with the girl, or Philip will testify that I the shooting was intentional, : John, then fore, flees and Lunly, beleiving Philip's false testi' mony. transfers her affection linn.

As a result ihe Canal Zone death rats is lower than in most Amei ican cji i< i Hating made Ihe Canal Zone a %  afe place in which io work, the Commission went farilier and made ii a comfortable place in winch lo live.

Not was the social life ol Ihe irkers overlooked. Club houses were built and furnished at the principal settlementR long the rou I Ihe canal, mostly i p' ratei ei ihe direction ol lbs V. M. C. A., and a I tile laler, women's clubs were organized in the principal towns. I he canal itself, from deep waKi i,, rk i|i watei, is v miles4ong. In general direction Irom ihe Atlantic entrance to the Pacifii end is from northwest to southeast, the nothern terminal I" tag about a\ milt] fai t than Ihe IOUIIIern cntiai ce from the Par. inc. I he IIIM •. i lies < f th cai al, be ginning al the Atlantic end. are at tea levi I. I ivi miles ol channel 500 ft. wide, have %  • n dredged lo a depth of 41 ft. directly south through Limon Bay.and Iwo miles of tins bea-level section has been 1 ui through low-l) ing land to the entrance lo the latun Locks, when ihe sh.ps air raised, in three %  taps, lo a height of 85 ft. above tea Ii vi I, into Ihe grew I body of lush wati 1 < ailed Gatun Lake. These Gatun Lockl arc not only ihe largesl of their kind, bul together comprise ihe largest monolithic conciete stiui ture ever built, exi • eding in volume ihe great As. %  uuan Dam and bu king two ihiidi as large as the Uieni Pj ramid, winch Istill Ihe worlds largest masonry structure. These lucks, like the unes at the Pacific nd ol the canal, aie built in pairs, so that the danger from accident is halved and tin efficiency doubled. Since 95 per cent of ocean-going ships ate less than 600 ft. long,and 11 would be a waste of water and of time t" use the entire 1,000 ft. Jock foi shott vessels, each lock is provided with intermediate gates, so th .t an) one of live dillereiit length! ol chamber may be US6d, In all there are 46 lock gates at 1 ma. Tiise are made ol steel plates riveted to structural-steel fiames, and so strongly have they been constructed and so carefully l raced lhat the laiaest of them, weighii g 1483,700 lb., drm ps lets than one eight of an in< bat the extreme end, 65 ft. from its pintle, or hinge. The total weight of the gates is 118,488,100 lb, and their cost, including the cost of erection, was I s..574.474" r more ,nan 4 cents a pound. Vessels will be lifted or lowered in the locks at the rate ol 3 ft. a minute, and the total time for pas sing the Gatun Locks will be about an hour and a half. Ships will not be allowed to p iss through the locks under their own power, for lear of damaging the lock gates by collision. In Gatun Lake a ship may iteam at full speed for 24 miles, to Has Obispo, where it enters the Culebra Cut. The channel through the lake is not a strai il line, bul pasn und and hi twei 1 many is lands. It is marked by b winch are to be light) d at night. In fact, the entiie length of the i anal will be so brilli intly lighted at to make the passage by night almost as safe as by day. 'I I"' Culebra Cut, nme miles I through the mountains, was the most difficult part of tbecanal construction. At the southern end of the Culebra Cut is the Pedra Miguel lock, with a lift of 30 ft. 4 m. A sh p p issing through this must proce I two miles farther to Mirafl >res, through another fresh-water hke, about two square miles in a with a surface 55 ft. above mean sea level. At the lower.nd of this lake ate tbe Miraflorei Locks similar in every respect to those at < latun except'that they are of but two steps instead of three. Dropping down through these a distance of 54 ft. Sin., tbe ship finds il again in salt water and at the l< w I ol the Pacific Ocean. Here a channel 5090 wide and 0 miles long leads to deep water and the 1 ipen sea. See O ]\i Special Line ,,f PORTRAIT WORK for Christm SANDS, Photographer, Baj-street, City" r* I IT

afe place in which io work, the
Commission went farilier and made

ranged lor legular shipments of

ment- r long the rou.....I Ihe canal,
mostly i p' ratei ei ihe direc-
tion ol lbs V. M. C. A., and a
I tile laler, women's clubs were
organized in the principal towns.
I he canal itself, from deep wa-

In general direction Irom ihe At-
lantic entrance to the Pacifii end is
from northwest to southeast, the
nothern terminal I" tag about a\

500 ft. wide, have n dredged lo
a depth of 41 ft. directly south
through Limon Bay.and Iwo miles

These Gatun Lockl arc not only
ihe largesl of their kind, bul to-

lithic conciete stiui ture ever built,
exi eding in volume ihe great As.
uuan Dam and bu king two ihiidi
as large as the Uieni Pj ramid,
winch I- still Ihe worlds largest
masonry structure. These lucks,
like the unes at the Pacific nd ol
the canal, aie built in pairs, so
that the danger from accident is
halved and tin efficiency doubled.
Since 95 per cent of ocean-going
ships ate less than 600 ft. long,and
11 would be a waste of water and
of time t" use the entire 1,000 ft.
Jock foi shott vessels, each lock is
provided with intermediate gates,
so th .t an) one of live dillereiit
length! ol chamber may be US6d,
In all there are 46 lock gates at
1 ma. Tii- se are made ol steel
plates riveted to structural-steel
fiames, and so strongly have they
been constructed and so carefully
l raced lhat the laiaest of them,
weighii g 1483,700 lb., drm ps lets
than one eight of an in< bat the
extreme end, 65 ft. from its pintle,
or hinge. The total weight of the
gates is 118,488,100 lb, and their
cost, including the cost of erection,
was I s..574.474- "r more ,nan 4
cents a pound.
Vessels will be lifted or lowered
in the locks at the rate ol 3 ft. a
minute, and the total time for pas
sing the Gatun Locks will be about
an hour and a half. Ships will not
be allowed to p iss through the
locks under their own power, for
lear of damaging the lock gates by
collision.
In Gatun Lake a ship may iteam
at full speed for 24 miles, to Has
Obispo, where it enters the Cule-
bra Cut. The channel through the
lake is not a strai il line, bul pas-
n und and hi twei 1 many is
lands. It is marked by b
winch are to be light) d at night.
In fact, the entiie length of the
i anal will be so brilli intly lighted
at to make the passage by night
almost as safe as by day. 'I I"'
Culebra Cut, nme miles I
through the mountains, was the
most difficult part of tbecanal con-
struction.
At the southern end of the Cule-
bra Cut is the Pedra Miguel lock,
with a lift of 30 ft. 4 m. A sh p
p issing through this must proce I
two miles farther to Mirafl >res,
through another fresh-water hke,
about two square miles in a
with a surface 55 ft. above mean

A 151 I.I. RELATING TO
FRIENDLY SOCIETIES
Before entering upon a dis-
( uston of this bill, we propose
to take a cursory review of the
great Friendly Society move-
ment which has become a great
economic power in other, and
this, lands, and particularly the
organizations which are the ob
jeel of this bill.
The Friendly Society Move
mem may be traced t i the earl
iett tinnsof which we haveany
record. Joseph (in Egypt) was
the president <>f one of the first
Friendly Societies that we know
anything about. This great
Egyptian Friendly Society had
millions of money as assets.
When dark days came and the
whole nation would have Starv-
ed if it had not been for the pro
vision made for the future bv
this society. The people I
nothing to do but claim and
gel the benefits of their th
and forethought. The Bible puts
it i......< short phrase :
"hi all the land of Egypt th n
was bread."
Friendly Societies akin to
w bat we liave now existed i
Thebes when Egypt was at the
heigh 1 of us prosperity, tin
they found their way into An-
cient Greece, this is confirmed
by the Greek writer Tbeophras
tus, three centuries before the
Christian era ; then, we find
Paul the great Apostle making
the following statement, "lie
that pro vide th not for Ins own
t and especially for those of Ins
own household is worse than
an infidel" ; the Apostle Ja n -.
also says I 'rue religion and 'in-
defiled l : G id and the
Father i< to visit the fattu
and the widow in thire afflic-
tion." From tins we are of opin
ion that the earl) Christians
ouied the pi in mutu \]
Assistance which is the i tin
feature of tin iation*.
From < Srew e the thrift n
menl spread to Imperi il R
I Boui ished und< i I
from Iv'oine the thrift spread to
Not hern Kurope .m<\ when the
Anglo Si IXOn ia e | aaie aS eini
grants to Britain they formed
their \ illage, trad i and other
(iuil u tnear Ms ulti rtately
became our English Municipal
Institution.
' Ithei Guilds insured "Pay
Mint during sickness." "Funeral
I' Kpensfs" "Pensions in Old Age'
& Many of the Trade guilds
then established still exist M
the "London Companies"
"Worshipful Companies" &c.
After the Norman Conquest
many Guilds were formed for
the promotion of religion,
charitv or trade.
In iM I taniel Defoe of "Ro-
binson Crusoe" fame published
"Essays on Projects" in which
he advocated a plan for the
formation of Societies lorn rj
by mutual assurance for the re
lief of the members in seasons
ol distress" and mi doubt that
ij led to th" formation of
Life Insurance Comp mies, and
also had its influence in the lor
ui.iti >n of |'iiendly !s
Among the earliest Friendly
Socii ties \ is the W Htchnmkers
Society established .'out tin-
Mar 1700.
The first Friend I j 9 i ie|, \i

It is the mission of these so-
' ies :n general to elevate tlie
tone ol public and private
morals, and to endeavour to 1
ah/.e in all the arr tnge 11 suts >f

the Meuib 'rship looks n mnc
at the recently d iveioped pater-
nal solicitude o| the government
expressed by the Bill with which
we are to deal.
In England we find such m n
as an Archbishop of Canterbury,
Mishop of Durham, Lady Henry
Somerset, Mr. D. J. Shackleton,
M. P., Sir <; rge White M 1',
&c, and otinis he :oming Hon-
orary Members of these S icieties
with th d< sire help them ;
here if a man becomes say a
fourth clerk in one of the d
partments he begins t> think

Whence this solicitude ?
What has been the- influence
of tins friendly society move-
in nt ?
Ills it been mimic 1! to the
welfare of the individual commonwealth '<
Ih- it been pro luctive of dis-
order, or a breeder of riot, or
subversive of good govern men I;

the friendly society movement

it has bi en an 1 dm ator in thrift

upon the lif'' of the people ; it
educates the people in decorum
