This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

INSTITUTION. «K™



HEAD OFFICE : 6, ST. ANDREW SQUARE, EDINBURGH.

J.N THIS J^OCIET^ are combined the advantages of
MUTUAL ASSURANCE WITH MODERATE PREMIUMS.

THE PREMIUMS are so moderate that an Assurance of £1,200 or
£1,250 may generally be secured from the first for the yearly payment
which usually would assure (with profits) £1,000 oDly — equivalent to an
immediate and certain Bonus of 20 to 26 per cent.

THE WHOLE SURPLUS goes to the Policyholders, on a system
at once safe and equitable — no share being given to those by whose
early death there is a loss to the common fund. Large additions
have been made to the Policies of those who participate, notwith-
standing the lowness of the Premiums.

Examples of Premium for £100 at Death— with Profits.

*A person of 30 may secure £1,000 at Death by a yearly payment, during
life^ of £20 16s., which would in most Ofaoes secure (with profits) £800 only. Or
secure £1,000 by 26 payments of ^26 IDs., being thus free of payment before age 66.

t At age 35 the Premium ceasing before age 60 is, for £1,000, X'28 17s. 6d.,
being about the same as many Offices require during life. To Professional
Men and others whose income is dependent on health, tiie limited payment system
is specially repommended.

THE SURPLUS at last Division (1894) was £1,423,000.
More than one half of the Members who died during the last Septennial
period were entitled to Bonuses which, notwithstanding that the
premiums do not as a rule exceed the non-profit rates of
other Offices, were on the average equal to an Ad(Ution of about
50 per cent, to the Policies which participated.

ACCUMULATED FUNDS, £10,000,000.

K S S I /"I



The Constitutional Year Book was first issued in 1885, with the
special object of supplying a demand which had often been made
by Conservative speakers and journalists, and by politicians generally,
for a cheap and handy reference-book of political information,
containing facts and statistics of public interest, such as are often
only obtainable after laborious search among Parliamentary Blue
Books and other official documents. The success which attended its
issue has justified the continuance of the publication in an enlarged
and improved form.

The Constitutional Year Book does not claim to compete in
variety of general information with the numerous and valuable Almanacks
at present in circulation : its scope is cliiefly political. At the same
time, there will be found in its pages much of the information usually
contained in an Almanack, in addition to novel features which
are believed to distinguish it from any existing work of the kind.

Special attention is drawn to the complete information relating to
Parliamentary Constituencies, Members, Candidates, and Elections from
1885 to the present time ; to the Parliamentary Summary, arranged in
a special and convenient form; to the list showing the principal
Votes during the Session of 1897, and the total Attendances of each
member of the House of Commons at divisions during the Session ;
and to the condensed Tables of Statistics on almost every subject
of national importance, which have been carefully revised and
brought down to the latest possible date.

The Editor will be glad to receive any suggestions or corrections
from correspondents.
