Shoaling of Min River Entrance.

THE entrance of the River Min between No. 1 and No. 2 Buoys, and also inside No. 3 Buoy has shoaled considerably since the last survey in October 1906. This will probably be remedied when the S. W. monsoon has set in sufficiently to allow of the washing away of the sand driven in during the N. E. monsoon.

A new survey will be made when the weather permits and the results thereof will be duly published. Meanwhile it is inadvisable for vessels drawing more than 23 feet to enter the port.

Objects and Reasons.

This Bill proposes to effect certain amendments in The Life Insurance Companies Ordinance which was 'passed last year.

That Ordinance has received the careful consideration of the Actuarial Adviser of the Board of Trade and the ameud- ments are based on his suggestions.

Section provides a trust fund in respect of policies issued in the Colony and as it is considered undesirable to create preferential charges or deposits and also as no corresponding provision is contained in the Imperial Acts it is proposed to delete the section.

Section 9 sub-section (3) is regarded as unworkable or inoperative in practice and the amendment is considered preferable and practicable.

Section 24 provides a special test of solvency and various reasons are urged against it and (inter alia) that the "Actuaries" table is obsolete. The section is so amended as to leave it to the Court to determine in view of all the circumstances as to the solvency or insolvency of a Company.

2. The registration of any grave gives no title or property therein but will be recog- nized as evidence that at the date of registration the registered owner was the. person entitled to conduct the worship at such grave.

3. An existing grave incans a grave actually occupied at the date of registration and
