Leaving the present number of active members at 132
being an increase of 35 per cent, as compared with the roll in
July, 1890. This large accession of new members, with a
prospect of the number being still further increased by new
elections at the Annual Meeting, indicates unmistakably a
marked interest in the Board's influence and usefulness. ANNUAL  REPORT.
Meetings. During the period under review six General
Meetings of the Board and seventeen meetings of
the Council have been held ; in addition to nine Committee Meetings ; being thirteen in excess of the number held in the preceding
twelve months, and necessitated by the increasing matter dealt
with by the Board. The attendance at General Meetings has
been most satisfactory, being exactly twice as large as in the
year 1888-9, and 87 per cent, better than during the year
1889-90, and your Committee anticipate that, with the rapidly
increasing business of the Board, the same active interest will
continue and expand. The attendances of members of Council
are shewn in the appendices.
Vacancies. We regret to record the loss by death of the
late James Fell, Esq., an indefatiguable member
of )rour Council. A resolution of the Board in reference thereto
was passed on the.2nd January last, a copy of which will be found
in the Appendices. At a meeting of Council held January 13th,
Gustave Leiser, Esq., was elected to fill the vacancy caused by
Mr. Fell's death.
Ghiria-Japan The Board has continued to press the claims
Mail Steamship °f me Port of Victoria upon the Canadian Pacific
o  , . Railway Company for the calling here of their
«-■■»■=" China-Japan mail steamships, and the landing of
mails, passengers and freight. In April last the President
of the C. P. R. Co., in an interview with the Board, gave
his re-assurance that the ships of this line would call
at this Port both inwards and outwards. In the conference with Mr. Van Home, his attention was called
to the inequality of rates, and stress was laid upon
the loss and inconvenience to shippers in having Victoria
freight from the Orient carried past the Port, and the delays
which have occurred in getting it shipped back from Vancouver. Within the past eighteen months, Victoria merchants have contributed $84,650.00 as freight on 7,000 tons
merchandise carried by ships running in connection with the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and as the Port is a contributor to
the Dominion Revenue of about $1,000,000 annually (from
which revenue  a  subsidy  is  granted  yearly  to  the  C. P. R- H
BRITISH  COLUMBIA  BOARD  OF TRADE.
steamers), Victoria's just  claims call for more than ordinary
comment, and should convince the C. P. R. Co. that any further I
indifference thereto cannot but be resented.
Another line of steamships, the Upton Company, has
recently commenced a monthly service with the Orient, intending to make Victoria the first Port of call inwards and the last
outwards. Your Committee understand the financial result to
the Company has been satisfactory so far, and it is hoped sufficient inducements will be forthcoming in the future to ensure
the continuance of this service.
To illustrate the facilities existing at this Port for the
accommodation of Ocean Steamships, your Committee would
point out that the SS. "Batavia," with 22 feet draught,
entered and docked at extreme low tide; the SS. "Costa
Rica," drawing 24 feet, being likewise accommodated at the
outer harbor of Victoria. The draught of the C. P. R. Co's
Steamships from China, as officially reported, was as follows I
"Empress of India," 24 feet; "Empress of Japan," 24 feet.
These steamships were not docked at the Outer Wharf, as the
Masters had not received authority from the C. P. R. Co.
Harbor. The improvements to the Outer Harbor of
Victoria, undertaken by private enterprise, and
mentioned in the previous annual report, are rapidly approaching
completion; in connection therewith a Minute of Council was
drawn up and forwarded to the Minister of Public Works, urging;
that the work of dredging the approach to the wharves to a
depth ot water equal to that provided alongside the wharves
should be carried out by the Dominion Government. A deputation
of members of the Board waited upon Sir Hector Langevin,
Minister of Public Works, September 13th, and further represented the constantly increasing trade and shipping of the Port, and
the importance of dredging on a more improved and modern scale
in the Outer Harbor, and the general enlargement of Victoria
Harbor system, by constructing a sea wall, extending from
Brochey's Ledge to' Holland Point; but the appropriations in
the regular estimates, recently passed by the Dominion House
of Commons, are quite inadequate for any oractical improvement to be effected.    Your Committee would direct the earnest ANNUAL  REPORT.
attention of the new Council to the question of enlarging and
improving our Harbor facilities, and that they be asked to prepare a well defined scheme towards the accomplishment of the
work.
Telegraphs. The urgency of an alternative line to connect
with the United States systems has been kept before the Dominion Government; and the numerous complaints of
the public have formed the subject of a correspondence with the
Superintendent of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's
system, but the service cannot be said to be entirely satisfactory.
In response to a request by the Board, the wiring of
information to some central place in this city, as to vessels and
state of weather, day by day, at Bonilla Point, at the entrance
of the Straits of Fuca, is under the consideration of the Superintendent of the Government Telegraph service; and if the
Board's suggestion is acted upon, the service will prove of
great value to our Shipping and Mercantile interests.
Lights, Beacons The question of lighting and buoying the
and Buoys. • northern section of the coast line of the Province
has at last received the attention of the Government; your President having brought the matter very prominently
before the Minister of Marine and Fisheries in a lengthened correspondence extending over several months. The urgency of the
question having been duly recognized, Mr. Anderson, an
Engineer officer from the Department, was sent out, and the
Board was afforded opportunities for conferring with him very
full/ upon the different matters which, in the Board's opinion,
required to be dealt with. Mr. Anderson's courtesy and attention were duly appreciated, and your Committee are pleased to
record that the officer in question subsequently visited various
sections of the coast, and has doubtless reported to the Government on the result of his enquiries, and also upon the requests
of the Board. In the meantime several buoys and two beacons
have been placed, in accordance with the Board's recommendations. Fraser River navigation and Vancouver Harbor have
also received attention from the Government officer sent out to
report thereon. i6
BRITISH   COLUMBIA   BOARD   OF  TRADE.
A list of lights, beacons and buoys recommended by the
Board will be found in the Appendices.
Fur Seal
Fisheries.
The dispute regarding the Fur Seal Fisheries
in Behring Sea, which has for some years somewhat strained the relations between the Imperial
and Dominion Governments, and the Government of the United
States, and which has resulted in great losses to British Columbia
Sealers, and to all parties connected with the Sealing industry,
is advanced a stage towards a settlement.
The Imperial and United States authorities have arranged
for a cessation of seal killing in Behring Sea and on the Alaska
Seal Islands, till May, 1892, (7500 seals excepted) pending a full
enquiry into the questions at issue ; and it is Understood that
both Governments are placing armed vessels in that sea to meantime prevent the taking of Seals.
The sudden stoppage of sealing in the .middle of the hunting season, will cause most.serious loss to the numerous sealers
who have recently fitted out at this Port, and is calculated to
produce financial disaster to the owners, and distress amongst
the hunters, boatmen and others dependant upon the industry
for their support.
It is earnestly to be hoped that the Imperial Government,
when considering the whole question, will not only speedily
arrange that the Sealing industry can in future be proceeded
with untramelled, but will also make ample provision to recompense those of our people, who in the past have had their property seized and sold, and who in the present are deprived from
following that which has ever been recognized by our Government as a lawful pursuit.
Railways. The Shuswap and Okanagan Railway will be
completed this year, and in consequence a very
much larger area of wheat and other cereals will be cultivated in
the Vernon and Enderby districts. This railway runs through one
of the richest agricultural districts of the Province, but the progress of this section of the country has hitherto been retarded for
want of transport. Adjacent to this railway is situated the rich
mining region of Kootenay, which is elsewhere herein referred to. ANNUAL   REPORT.
The Nelson and Sproat's Landing Railway is in the centre
of a very rich mining district, which has a great future before it.
During the last session of the Provincial Legislature,
charters were granted to fourteen Railways, and four Tramway
Companies. The Victoria and North American Railway Company
has made proposals for building a line from Victoria to Beecher
Bay, in connection with the proposed ferry from the latter place
to Port Crescent, State of Washington, with the object of joining the Northern Pacific Railway Company's system at that
point. Several charters were granted for Railways through the
fertile valley of the Fraser. If the Cariboo RaiSay is constructed, extensive gold mining operations will be carried on, as
the necessary machinery, which it is now impossible to freight
into the gold fields, could then be conveniently forwarded.
Yo.ur Committee consider that the time has now arrived
when the railway system of Vancouver Island should be extended
Northward, and trusts that the Provincial Government at the
next session of the  Legislature will take the necessary steps
towards carrying out this important work, and to thus open up
a large and undeveloped section of this Island.
In the Appendices will be found a copy of the Report made
by a Special Committee of this Board in respect to certain rai
way proposals, to give Victoria transcontinental railway connections.    A list of ,the Railway and Tramway. Companies referred
to, is also included in the Appendices.
Fisheries. Operations at the Salmon Canneries for the
year ending 31st December, 1890, developed results, as shewn in the appendices, almost as large as those in the
previous year, the aggregate pack reaching 409,464 cases ; the
bulk, as usual, being exported to Great Britain, Australia ^M
Eastern Canadian points ; however, the net returns for these
shipments indicate a considerable falling off in prices as compared with 1889. This is accounted for to a great extent by the
large yield of Alaskan Canneries, which is brought into direct
competition with our Provincial product, and although the
Alaska fish varies in appearance and quality, and is-generally
inferior to British Columbia Salmon, it is procurable in larger i8
BRITISH  COLUMBIA  BOARD   OF TRADE.
quantities, unskilled labor is more .readily obtainable, and the
Alaska Canners, moreover, not being hampered with stringent
and undesirable regulations in the pursuit of the industry, are
consequently able to market their pack at a very considerable
lower cost than the British Columbia article.
In the last report of the Board it was pointed out that
strong' efforts had been made to induce the Minister of Marine
and Fisheries Department at Ottawa to visit the Province, with
a view to a thorough enquiry into the general working of the
Salmon industry, and the Regulations in force, which have
caused so much friction between the Canners, Fishermen and
the Department. The Minister, while favorable to the suggestion, did not find it convenient to carry it out, but instructed
Mr. Wilmot, who is connected with the Fisheries Department,
to visit the Province and give his views upon the question.
These latter were obtained during a visit of two days on the
Fraser River, and were duly communicated to the Minister in a
report since published, and which, owing to the few hours in
which the observations were made, was consequently full of inaccuracies, exaggerations and statements of a generally misleading character throughout, and was therefore of little
practical value. The indulgence in gratuitous and insulting
reference to our Cannery proprietors is a marked and regrettable
feature of Mr. Wilmot's report.
Your Committee regret to report that no proper basis for
the adjustment of the question has yet been determined upon
by the Department, which has, since receiving Mr. Wilmot's
report, only issued vacillating Regulations which further
hamper the industry. From lengthened discussions and correspondence on the part of the Board and the Canners' Association, it is apparent that any further attempt on the part of the
Marine and Fisheries Department to deal with the question,
without a proper realization of the Provincial requirements, will
in the future, as in the past, result in failure. Your Committee
is, therefore, fully in accord with the recommendations of the
Canners' Association, that the appointment of a Board of Commissioners within this Province, following the lines laid down
by a joint committee from the Oregon and Washington, U. S., ANNUAL  REPORT.
Legislatures, with respect to the preservation of the Salmon
Fisheries on the Columbia River, should be adopted in
British Columbia. Your Committee is fully alive to the
necessity of having such regulations enforced as will secure
the preservation and increase of fish life in Provincial waters,
and trusts that the fishery industries will be so regulated as to
make them a source of permanent wealth to the Province, while
due consideration be given to those who have embarked their
capital in these pursuits.
In the Appendices will be found copies of documents bearing on this matter.
Since the foregoing report has been drawn up, your Committee learn that there is now a disposition at Ottawa to act
upon the suggestions for the appointment of a Board of
Commissioners at an early date, and if this should prove to be
the case there is every reason to hope for a fair and impartial
adjustment of the differences which have so long existed.
Deep Sea
isheries.
In the Board's annual reports for the past two
years, reference was made with respect to the
'""""■' non-development of our Deep Sea Fisheries, and
it must be again recorded that the Dominion Government has
taken no further steps towards surveying the various fishing
banks off the coasts of Vancouver Island and Queen Charlotte
Islands. It is to be regretted that the development of these
Fisheries should be so long retarded, and that no reciprocal
arrangement has been arrived at with the United States, which
would afford free interchange of Fish and Fish Products, and
thereby furnish this Province with available markets therefor.
It is understood that a new Steamer is in course of construction for the Marine and Fisheries Department, to take the
place of the Dominion Government Str. " Sir James Douglas,"
and it is therefore to be hoped that the last named Steamer v/ill be
available for Deep Sea surveys in connection with the Fisheries.
Craving Dock The demand for the use of the Dry Dock at
(Esquimalt). Esquimalt is fast increasing and serious incon-
———- venience has resulted through ships having to
remain so lone: in the dock when undergoing extensive repairs 20
BRITISH  COLUMBIA  BOARD   OF  TRADE.
the urgency for the construction of another Dry Dock is amply
demonstrated. Had the present Dock been occupied at the time
of the accident to H.M.S. " Amphion," the ship would undoubtedly have been lost, and the same misfortune must have befallen
any other vessel requiring the use of the Dock in cases of
emergency during the 7 months occupation by the " Amphion."
The S. S. "Costa Rica" occupied the Dock fifty-three days
whilst undergoing repairs.
The total number of vessels docked during the year ending
June 30th, was 28, with an aggregate tonnage of 39,385 tons;
±he Dock being occupied 194 days in all.
A desirable site for another Dry Dock, is on the Govern-
rment property, alongside the present dock, which, apart from
•other reasons, is suggested upon economical considerations,
•such as the utilization of the present machinery, plant and staff,
the which, with slight additions, would meet the requirements of
both Docks.
The suggested new Dock should be 650 feet long, as advocated in the Board's last Annual Report, with a width of 85 feet
at the entrance, and with a depth of water 36 to 40 feet. This
would accommodate the largest ships in the British navy.
Mines and Notwithstanding labor difficulties which closed
Minerals. one °f our colleries for some months, the output
of coal exported for the Province during the
period under review, has aggregated 644,991 tons. In addition
to the coal mines worked at Nanaimo and Departure Bay, it is
'well known that valuable coal deposits exist in large quantities
at other points, on and adjacent to Vancouver Island, and it is
±0 be hoped that these will receive the attention of capitalists
■with a view to active development.
Quicksilver in large quantities and easy of access has been
found near Alberni, and promises to become an important factor
in our mining statistics. The iron found in the vicinity of the
quicksilver mines proves to be the best yet discovered on the
Island.
The exports of gold show a falling off, in consequence of
placer mining diminishing. ANNUAL  REPORT.
21
Quartz mining on a systematic basis in the Kootenay District
is being rapidly prosecuted; as mentioned in the previous annual
report, the progress of this district has been retarded for lack of
transport facilities. A branch line of the Canadian Pacific Rail-
■wav, from Sproat's to Nelson is being operated in connection
-with river steamers from Revelstoke, but the service is very imperfect and totally inadequate for the requirements, as the boats
can only run two-thirds of the year. The difficulty would in a
great measure be overcome by the building of the line provided
for by the " Fort Sheppard and Nelson Railway Act, 1891," and
.a Minute of Council has been forwarded to Messrs. Earle and
Prior M's P. asking them to use their best endeavors to ensure
the necessary legislation in the Dominion House of Commons,
where it was reported the measure had met with opposition
The attention of capitalists is already directed to the Kootenay
District,and with proper machinery and cheap transport, judging
from the analysis of recent quartz discoveries, it is probable
results will follow fully equal to the expectations of the most
.sanguine.
Prospecting for minerals on this Island has been vigorously
carried out ; no important discoveries have been reported, hut

precious metals.
The mining laws which have been revised and amended
upon lines suggested by a commission of practical men, will
"by their provisions, tend to increased development of our mining
industries.
Lumber. The exports of Lumber from the Province have
increased, but it is difficult to obtain correct information, as the quantities sent by rail to the Eastern Provinces
are not included in the tables. The opening of the Nicaragua
Canal, referred to elsewhere, would undoubtedly give a great
impetus tto this already important industry.
A large lumber mill has recently been established at
Chemainus, and ship-building in connection therewith will be
carried on. 22 BRITISH   COLUMBIA   BOARD   OF  TRADE.
Another lumber mill has been established at Cowichan, and
other important establishments are in contemplation in the near
future, both on this Island and the Mainland.
Logging Camps are increasing, and the industry is progressing satisfactorily, although the foreign trade has been depressed_
owing to various causes ; the revolution in Chili and the political
disturbances in Buenos Ayres, both contributing to this.
The Board having observed that Australasian trade
reviews placed imports of British Columbia Lumber as
being received from the United States, communicated with the
Melbourne, Sydney, Dunedin and Wellington Chambers of
Commerce, with a view of insuring a proper classification of
our lumber. Favorable replies have been received from Sydney,
Dunedin and Wellington, and British Columbia lumber will
henceforth be specified in the import returns of these colonies.
Attention is directed to the strength of British Columbia
timber; tables in reference thereto are included in the Appendices.
Fruit Growing. This industry, -we are pleased to gather from
various sources, as well as from our own observations of what is being done in various districts, is receiving
increased attention, and the indications are that it will in a few
years hence, have reached dimensions of commercial importance
worthy of an annual review.
It seems almost a revelation to many when they are told,
that this industry in California, which fifteen years ago was as
little thought of as it is with us at the present time, has now
reached the enormous value of $19,857,826.00 for the past year.
Wheat-growing, fifteen years since, was then the engrossing
pursuit of the farmer, but according to recent returns, the annual
value of wheat and flour exports was less by $530,660.00 than
that of the fruit exports.
That the lands of many parts of this Province, and particularly of this Island, are admirably adapted for fruit-growing,
has been demonstrated beyond dispute ; and a well known
authority (Mr. Cunningham of New Westminster) stated at a
recent meeting, that all fruits, not tropical, except grapes, can
be successfully grown in the Province. ANNUAL  REPORT. ?-
The fact that the imports of fruit as entered at the Custom
House at Victoria, amounted to $80,015, for last year, on which
$16,372.06 duty was paid, shows that a large local gap has to
be filled, and a large and increasing market may be looked for in
the North-west, where fruit cannot be successfully grown.
Manufactures. The establishment of a sugar refinery at Van
couver ; Roller Mills and Oatmeal Mills in Victoria, and the general enlargement and improvement of mills in
the interior, indicate in a most desirable channel, the advance and
progress of the Province. With large tracts of rich land, and
climate favorable for the growth of wheat; the importation of
35,065 barrels of flour from th.e United States, value $130,894 ;
the duty on which amounted to $19,924.86, during the fiscal year
ending 30th June', 1890, is a matter which calls for serious attention. The capacity of our Provincial Mills is ample for grinding
grain to meet all our requirements.
Fruit canning has already commenced on the Mainland, and
has proved a great success ; arrangements are in progress for
the establishment of a fruit cannery on this Island. The recent
reduction in duty on sugar will operate favorably to this new
industry. The Province as a field for successful fruit growing,
is referred to elsewhere in this report.
A project is also in hand for the establishment of a paper
. mill at Alberni, on this Island, where there is ample supply of
cottonwood, suitable for pulp for this industry.
Surveys. During the past year the Provincial Govern
ment has been actively engaged in prosecuting
surveys on the Mainland and Island The Chilcotin survey party
gathered most valuable information during the summer of 1890,
about 3,000,000 acres were found fit for agricultural purposes ;
one-third being prairie, and the rest nearly all composed of level
benches The land is reported good; with water, firewood, game
and fish, sufficient for thousands of settlers. The want of communication is the great drawback to this District, but which could
be obviated by the construction of the Canadian Western Central
Railway Another survey party reports some 8,500 acres suitable
for settlement in the San Juan Valley on Vancouver Island.   In the 24
BRITISH  COLUMBIA  BOARD  OF  TRADE.
event of the Crofter project for colonizing certain lands on this
Island being concluded, this valley should form a suitable point
for cultivation and settlement. A survey of the Nitinat Valley,
Vancouver Island, has been carried out, and a large portion of
desirable land has been pre-empted or applied for.
There are now two parties making exploration surveys in
the Northern portion of the Province; also two parties in a
Northern seclfen of the Island, completing township and outline
surveys ; other parties are on the Mainland dividing land for
settlement. No official reports of these surveying parties are to
hand at present.
Your Committee would again venture to suggest to the
Provincial Government the inadvisability of selling any of these
lands to others than actual settlers.
Second A communication has been received from the
Congress of the London   Chamber  of   Commerce  advising  this
""fTnamher's""" ^oar<^ that it has been decided to hold a second

' Empire,  in London, in May or June,   1092.     A
'    ~^' programme comprising the  principal   economic
and non-political subjects considered ripe for discussion has
been framed, which is submitted for the Board's consideration.
Notice of any special resolutions thereon, or suggestions as to
addifens to the programme, are invited by the Chamber, to be
given as early as possible, and the Board has been asked to nominate a delegate to attend the Congress. Your Committee would
advise that these important suggestions be commended to the
incoming Council, to be suitably dealt with.
German, The Board, some time since, was asked to
Consulate, report upon the advisability of re-establishing a
German Consulate at this Port, and the report
being favorable  towards establishing a Consulate,   Mr.   Carl
Lowenberg, of Victoria, has received the appointment for the
Province of British Columbia.
Board of Trade       Your Council, acting upon the suggestions
Building.       previously made by the Board, have agreed to the
purchase of a convenient site on Bastion Square,
for the sum of $10,200.00, and a Committee has been appointed ANNUAL   REPORT.
25
to consider and report upon a building scheme by which the Board
could acquire its own premises in a desirable portion of the city.
The time, however, between the resolution of Council and the
appointment of the Committee has been too short to enable the
latter to report, and it will, therefore, devolve upon your new
Council to actively take the matter in hand. Your
Committee would also recommend the incorporating of the
Board by Special Charter, at the next meeting of the Legislature, whereby the Board would be enabled to deal with real
estate and acquire other privileges as a corporate body.
Your Council would have preferred to have submitted the
question of purchasing the building site to a full Board, but
speedy action being necessary, the Council deemed it desirable
to assume the responsibility of acqfflring the property.
Insolvency Law. Continued dissatisfaction has been expressed in
the absence of adequate laws providing for the
equitable distribution of the assets of insolvent debtors ; the
matter has been repeatedly urged by the Board, and is commended
to the attention of the incoming Council for further action, in
conjunction with other Boards of Trade That the non-existence
of suitable measures for dealing with insolvent estates should be
so long tolerated is a reproach to the Parliament of Canada.
Nicaragua The Nicaragua Canal, in course of construc-
Canal.     tion, deserves our notice, as when completed its
™"~~"     results, which cannot be estimated at the present
day, must be of the vastest importance upon the interests of the
Pacific Coast.
From an address recently delivered in San Francisco by
ex-Senator Miller, President of the Nicaragua Canal Company,
the following information is gathered : Complete surveys of the
work have been made, all preliminary work has been done, and
already $4,000,000.00 to $5,000,000.00 have been expended on
the work, which is being pushed vigorously forward. The
estimated cost of the whole undertaking has been placed at
sixty-five millions, being thirty millions less than the cost of
the Suez Canal; and it is expected the work will be completed
and the canal open to the shipping of the world within six
years. 26
BRITISH  COLUMBIA   BOARD  OF  TRADE.
The distance by sea between Victoria and England will be
reduced by about 7,000 miles, and between Victoria and Halifax
by about 10,000 miles.
The effect of the saving of time and distance in relation to
shipping must be something Enormous, and cannot be otherwise than of the greatest benefit to this Province, as it will increase the facilities of adding to our population, and cheapening
the means of getting to the markets of the world the products
of our Mines, Forests and Fisheries.
By-Laws. The Committee appointed at the last Quarterly
General Meeting of the Board to revise the By-
Laws, presented its report to the Council, and the suggestions
contained therein, appearing well adapted to promote the welfare
of the Board, will be submitted for the members approval.
The following are the principal alterations :
Section II. Quorums at General Meetings, now seven,
raised to fifteen.
Section IV. The election of new members is placed last in
the order of business.
Section VI. A paragraph is inserted requiring that notice
of new business for consideration at a General Meeting shall be
given in writing ten days prior to the date of holding such
meeting.
Section VIII. The entrance fee has been raised to $30, to
correspond with the notice given at the previous quarterly
meeting.
Section IX. The fees for Arbitrators have been raised to a
scale more in accord with the responsible duties of the office.
Section X. Reference to voting by proxy has been struck
out.
Section XI. The section providing for the expulsion of
members, under certain conditions, has been struck out and a
new one inserted.
Section XII. A new section has been inserted to provide
for Standing Committees on Fisheries, Manufactures, Harbors
and Navigation, Statistics, Mining, Public Works and Finance. ANNUAL  REPORT.
27
Section XIII. Some additions have been made to the
Commercial Charges of the Port.
Attention is directed to Section IX, relating to the procedure in cases of Arbitration ; the ^expenses in settling disputed
cases are nominal as compared to the Law Court costs; and
the choice of Arbitrators from a Board elected annually, and
thoroughly conversant with all matters of business, will, we
think, become popular and be generally availed of.
Immigration. We  are  indebted  to   Mr. John Jessop, the
Dominion Immigration Agent, for some valuable
information deserving attention. The report will be found in
the Appendices, together with the scale of wages paid for skilled
and unskilled laborers in the Province. Female domestic
servants and farm hands continue in general request.
Commercial The tax upon Commercial Travellers, which
—^M  II   II  I   I
Travellers' Tax. raised  so   much   adverse   comment,   has   been
repealed.   The Board took the matter under consideration last January, and suggested amendments were made
to the Municipal Act.
World's Fair. Private enterprise is already directed towards
the representation of this Province at the World's
Fair, to be held at Chicago, 1893. The Board has addressed the
Provincial Government in the matter, believing that an official
representation would best serve the interests of the Province;
and your Committee understand that a comprehensive collection
of minerals from all the Mining Districts is being made, and will
form not the least important of the exhibits. It is also hoped that
the fisheries, lumber and fruit interests of the Province will
receive due prominence.
Census The census returns are not yet available, but
Statistics.     i1; is expected they will be received in time to be
included in the Appendices before this report is
printed;   they  will doubtless  give interesting  details  of   the
extensive development of the Province since 1881, when the
last returns were compiled. 28
BRITISH  COLUMBIA  BOARD   OF  TRADE.
Library. Considerable additions have been made to the
Board's library since the previous annual report;
a list of the books with the names of the donors will be found in
the Appendices. We would make special mention of Mr. H. C.
Beeton's donations, comprising Scribner's Statistical Atlas of the
United States, and complete files of the London Board of Trade
and Chamber of Commerce Journals, January, 1888 to date. Hon.
John Robson's donation of a complete set of the British Columbia Parliamentary Journals and Sessional Papers, 1875 to ^90,
and Statutes of British Columbia to 1890. Thos. Earle, Esq.,
M.P., Sessional Papers and Journals of the Dominion House of
Commons, 1888-9-90. Also, Messrs. E. Crow-Baker and E.
G. Prior's donation of Blue Books of the Dominion Government.
Finance. The Report of the Audit Committee is attached
hereto; the assets aggregate $4,872.94, of which
$3,600.00 is invested on mortgage ; showing a net gain in the
past twelve months of $1,205.12; a result which your Committee feel will be accepted as highly satisfactory and indicative
of the Board's prosperity.
General Trade It is a source of gratification to know that the
and Outlook, trade and commerce of the Province have been
maintained in a healthy condition throughout the
period under review, and although the financial stringency that
has existed for some time in Great Britain, has more or less been
felt throughout Canada, the Pacific Province has been fortunate in
escaping its effects to any serious extent, as can be shown by the
insignificant number of failures that haveoccurred duringthe year.
In trade, British Columbia ranks high with her sister Provinces, and it is to be hoped that this enviable position will be
maintained by her merchants, manufacturers and traders, to th&
exclusion of over speculative operations in real estate, and
ventures other than those of legitimate trade and commerce.
The statistical information furnished by your Committee
■will be found to be more than usually interesting, fully demonstrating the general advancement made by the Province, notably
in the coast cities and towns.
Until transportation facilities are more complete, the same
ratio of progress cannot be expected at many of the interior points. ANNUAL  REPORT.
The City of Victoria has extended its municipal llfiits, with
an important increase of population, the assessed value of its
real estate being now $18,946,410.00, which will be further increased by about $7,000,000.00 more, when the new limits are
assessed next year. As the commercial capital of the Province
she has more than maintained her position, as will be observed
in the returns in the Appendices, her contributions in Customs
and Excise Duties to 30th June last, exceeding those of any
previous year, and amounting to $1,089,287.00, being very considerably more than the aggregate contributed by all her sister
Ports in the Province combined.
The urgent want of more suitable accommodation in the
Custom House, Post Office, and improved harbor facilities, have
all been brought about by the large expansion of our trade,
and the Board has repeatedly pressed these matters upon the
Dominion Government, but so far without securing a fair recognition of their importance. That a suitable appropriation for
these wants is fully melted, the Government ought no longer to
ignore, and the Board's efforts therefore should be continued in
pressing the justice of its suggestions, until these much needed
works are carried out.
In congratulating the Board upon the general prosperity of
the Province during the past year, your Committee would
record with pleasure the large and active interest taken by its
members in the various commercial and public matters referred
to in this report
The appointment of Standing Special Committees, alluded
to elsewhere, will enable the Board to still further increase its
usefulness, and will relieve the Council of much of the work
which now overtaxes it.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
Signed on behalf of the members of the British Columbia
Board of Trade,.

Captain Vancouver's Portrait.
Victoria, B. C, 3rd July, 1891.
Robert Ward, Esq.,
President, British Columbia Board of Trade :
Dear Sir,—It gives me great pleasure to present for the acceptance of your
Honorable Board, a portrait of Captain George Vancouver, R. N., which I have
reason to believe is an excellent one and a good work of art.
I hope it will soon find its appropriate home in the Board Room of the new
building you are about to erect, and that it will prove interesting to present and
future members of the British Columbia Board of Trade, whenever they happen
to look at the likeness of the young discoverer of our island, who, a century ago,
spoke in such glowing terms of the marvellous beauty of our scenery, and  the 36 BRITISH   COLUMBIA  BOARD   OF  TRADE.
salubrity of our climate, and anticipated for us that commercial future we all this
day believe to be in store for us.
For the information of yourself and fellow members, the portrait is a copy by
Mr. R. Alldridge (who is considered by Sir John Gilbert, the well known
Royal Academician, one of the very best copyists of the day of works of the old
masters) of the original oil painting by J. C. Abbott, an artist who painted many
of the celebrities of his day.
I regret, owing to business engagements and the absence of my partner, not
being present at your annual meeting to-day.
Believe me to remain,
Yours faithfully,
H. C. BEETON.
Mr. R. Alldridge is an English artist of repute, who has lived a good deal on
the Continent, studying painting in the different schools, more particularly Austria.
He is, in the opinion of the well known Sir John Gilbert, R.A., one of the very
best copyists of the day of works of the old Masters.
J. L. Abbott, the painter of the portrait, was a contemporary of Capt. Vancouver. Abbott was born in 1760 and died in 1803. He was the son of a clergyman in Leicestershire. At the age of 14 he became a pupil of Frank Hayman,
after whose death, two years later, he returned to his parents, and by his own
perseverance, acquired the art of taking a correct likeness. About 1780, he
settled in London, and was a frequent contributor to the Exhibitions of the Royal
Academy, between 1780 and 1800. In the published memoirs of Abbott, it is mentioned as a peculiarity of his painting, that the heads of his male portraits were
perfect in their likeness, particularly those which he painted from the naval heroes
of his time. His portrait of the poet Cowper is well known, and the best likeness
of Lord Nelson is from his hands.
RESOLUTION PASSED AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, JULY 3rd,  189I.
That the letter of Mr. H. C. Beeton be acknowledged, and that the heartiest
thanks of the Board be tendered him for his handsome gift of a portrait in oil, of
the late Captain Vancouver, R.N. ; that the Secretary be instructed to acquaint
Mr. Beeton of the Board's high appreciation accordingly; and further, that the
name of the worthy donor, and the date of presentation be duly inscribed on the
frame of the portrait.
Minute of Council re Victoria Harbor.
(Passed 2nd September, iSgo.)
Whereas the harbor facilities of the Port of Victoria have for some time past
been entirely inadequate to the fast increasing shipping and trade of the port, and APPENDICES. ,•»,

with a view of providing further accommodation for ocean steamships and vessels
of large tonnage ; considerable outlay has been incurred by private enterprise in
the construction of new wharves of a capacity of 3000 feet for berthing vessels in
the Outer Harbor; the building and equipment of a powerful dredger of large
capacity for the purpose of dredging alongside said wharves, to a depth at low tide
of 30 feet.    (See plan marked pink.)
And whereas, the Board has undertaken with the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company to provide the necessary facilities for docking and accommodating their
new line of steamships, which said Company have agreed shall call inwards and
outwards at this port.
And the Board, in view of the large private outlay incurred in order to carry
out these objects, consider that the work of dredging the approach to the wharves
(marked yellow on plan) referred to herein, to an equal depth of water to that provided alongside the wharves, should be carried out by the Dominion Government
at the earliest possible opportunity, so that the work can be sufficiently advanced,
and completed in readiness for the said China-Japan steamships.
And the Board therefore respecBlly urges the Hon. the Minister of Public-
Works to favorably consider the suggestions embodied herein, in the interests of
the Port of Victoria; and further, to enable the Board to carry out its undertaking, already referred to, with the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company.

Immigration Report.
Data furnished by John Jessop, Esq.,
Dominion Government Immigration Agent.
Agricultural and farm laboring classes have been scarce, making for the cities
rather than the country, on account of the difficulty in obtaining desirable land for
pre-emption, there being but little |§|i||||many miles of present centres of popu-
larion.
Capable mechanics in all building lines have had but little trouble in finding
employment, during the past twelve months.
Laboring work, though not so plentiful, has also been obtainable by steady
and persistent seeking.
All mercantile lines are full; supply of clerks, book-keepers and salesmen
being in excess of demand. This remark also applies to many other lighter
callings. 3«

Narrows, and the Committee having heen duly appointed by the Council, they
have instructed me to ascertain whether you are prepared to make any proposals
with this object in view.
The Corporation of this City has indicated its willingness to support any
well devised scheme for extending railway facilities to Victoria, and will give due
consideration to any recommendations which may be made by this Board.
If you have any proposal or suggestion to make, the Board will be happy to
take it under consideration, with other proposals, which they are inviting from
the different Railway Compagtes having business connections at this port.
Any proposal or suggestion which you might make in this connection should
be of a definite character, and should state clearly to what extent the proposed
service would be made, and the earliest date which could be relied upon for the
completion of such extension.
As the Committee is desirous of reporting to the Board, and through the
Board to the Municipal Council, in accordance with this resolution, not later
than June 1st, prox., I SmII esteem it a favor if you will have your reply to hand
one week prior to that date, in order that the matter can be dealt with accordingly.

ordered to be appointed by the Council of the Board to communicate with the '
different Railway Companies contemplating the extension of their service ; and
with that object I now address you for the purpose of ascertaining definitely
whether you have any proposal to make which will give Victoria City all rail connection with the mainland in conjunction with your existing railway system, or
otherwise ; and if you should be prepared to furnish such railway service in connection with .a transcontinental line, I would be favored by your stating the proposed service accordingly, the date at which you would guarantee it being in
operation, the nature of the maintenance of the service, and the conditions you
would require from the City of Victoria.
As the Committee have arranged 10 report to the Board, and through the
Board to the Municipal Council not later than 1st June prox., I shall be. favored
by your giving detailed reply one week earlier than that date.
The Corporation of Victoria hasindSted its willingness to favorably support any well devised Scheme for railway extension which would tend to benefit

To be entirely frank in this matter, am obliged to state I am quite ignorant

be good policy to incur any special expenditure in the direction you mention,

43
otice, and which you were kind enough to undertake to place in the proper
uarter and to give your own support thereto as far as possible, viz. :
Victoria Harbor.—More liberal expenditure in consequence of the
constantly increasing trade and shipping. Dredging on a more improved
and modern scale and plan, both with a view to utility and economy and
in lieu of the obsolete character of the dredger now in use. Dredging
approach to new wharves in outer harbor. General enlargement of Victoria
harbor system, by constructing a sea wall extending from Brochey's Ledge
to Holland Point.
Note.—Already laid before the Department, suggested that Government Engineer should report (approximately) on this scheme, which, if
cairied out, would furnish the finest harbor on the Pacific coast.
Lights, Beacons and Buoys.—Continued neglect of the Department to heed oft repeated notices as to the urgency of this much needed
work, particularly on the coast of Vancouver Island, North of Nanaimo.
Telegraphs.—No alternative line with the United States systems,
sanction of Government asked thereto, present system unsatisfactory, and
monopolized by a Railway Company.
Graving Dock, Esquimalt.—Lengthening present Dock to meet
growing necessities of shipping.
Powder Magazine, Beacon Hill Park.—To suggest that Minister
of Militia order removal of this dangerous obstruction in the public park.
Generally.—In view of the large contributions of revenue by the
Port of Victoria to the Dominion exchequer, appropriations on a more
liberal scale be granted for public works controlled by«jfie Dominion
Government.
I have the honor to be, sir,
Your obedient, servant,
