REPORT OF PRESIDENT.
The Cranbrook Board of Trade has
during the past year dealt with many
subjects of great importance to this
District,  amongst them were:
1. Settlement of the Fernie Coat
strike.
2. Extension of the Lead Bounty.
3. Timber Licenses.
On April 19th a special meeting of
this Board wus culled for the pur
pose of taking some action in urging
the prompt settlement of the Fernie
Coal strike, and ns a result of this
meeting a telegram was despatched
to the Hon. H. Lemieux, Minister of
Labor nt Ottawa, urging prompt
Government action; wc all know that
the Government appointed Mr. Mackenzie King, the Deputy Minister of
Labor as its representative nnd that
an investigation was immediately
commenced and in a very short time
the result was the complete resumption of work nt the Fernie and
Michel Mines and the satisfactory
adjustment of nil existing differences between the operators nnd the
men and there can be no question
but that the action of the Cranbrook Board of Trade in conjunction
with a similar action by the several
Boards of Trade of the District was
in a great measure tbe direct means
of drawing the attention of the Dominion authorities to tbe complete
demoralization of business throughout the Kootenays owing to the
strike and tbe most urgent necessity
for prompt action.
A special meeting of the Cranbrook Board of Trade was held in
Mighton's Hull on 16th of December
to discuss ttie extension of tlie Lead
Bounty and we then had Uie pleas
ure of listening to a very interesting
address from Mr. G. 0. Buchanitn,
the Lend Bounty Commissioner and
President of the Associated Boards,
on this subject; the result ol this
mooting wns tliat copies of n resolution asking that the Bounty period
he extended for a further period of
live years with ttie further suggestion that the duty on pig lead be increased; were forwarded to tbo Premier, Ttie Minister of Finance, the
Minister of Interior, the Minister of
Inland Revenue, Minister of Interior
and others ut Ottawa and to our
representative, as welt as a memo
of reasons for extension of Lead
Bounty. A resolution on these lines
was unanimously approved by the
Associated Boards of Trade held in
Moyie on 22nd ot January with a
further recommendation, however,
that owing to the lower value and
smaller size of the ore chutes of the
mines of the District making the
production of lend more expensive,
the Government be asked to amend
tbe application of the sliding scale
of Bounties so that the Bounty be
paid on lead wben £18 and lower Instead of (as at present) when £16
and lower. The resolutions of the
Local Boards together with that of
the Associated Boards of Trade will
doubtless he of valuable assistance
■In strengthening the arguments of
tbe delegates who are now at Ottawa urging the increase and exten-
sion ot the Lead Bounty und WO
must all appreciate what tbe sue
cess of their mission will mean to
this district in particular.
Tho (jueslloti of asking the Provincial Qovermnunt to make timber
licuneos porpotiml also uanio up for discussion at this mooting: and the Lumbermen of thi* district wore asked to ut
teud a meeting; of tin- Uom-H on iH.t.h

Whereas timber licences have i n
Issued eovorltij; tlmbor variously estimated ut from ton to 1-K) billion feet
said lleenso having a lifu generally of
21 years,
AND WIIKKKAS any attempt to
take oiV said timber within that time
would result in serious overproduction
of lumber would eneourago cutting of
timber and consequent loss of tbo same.
ANO WIIKKKAS large quantities
of timber are amiiiull.v destroyed by lire
and it is an importance to conserve tbe
timher wealth of tlie province.
UK IT THKKKFOKK RESOLVED
thai the Provincial Government be
asked:
1. To extend the life of nil licenses
for a further period uf twenty-ono years
at- tlie same Government rental.
li. That tlie Royalty he Inureased
every live yenrs on a certain percentage of Increase no that a fair pi-ice may
be realized bv lhe Government for the
same.
li. Thul some adequate system of tire
protection may be established to prevent destruction of timber by lire.
4. That ilie holders of cut over
licenses covering lands not tit tor agriculture lie given the privilege of holding said licenses for a further period of
twenty-one years at a nominal rental of
#5.00 per square mile per year on condition that they protect the same from
fire and otherwise promote the growth
of u new crop of timber.
That holders of licenses that have
lapsed for non-payment of the license
fee be given thirty days within whicli
to redeem the Binne by paying a penalty
of $10.00.

sent it is money entirely wasted.
1 would also suggest on Increased
membership foe. If lhn Board of Trade

worth at least $5.00 a year to each of us
who have our interests in this town and
district: a*, the present fee of $1.00 wo
have not sufficient funds in tho treasury
to nay our ordinary exponses, with a
$5.00 fee we should be able to properly
advertise our meetings, pny for rental
hall and also pay our Secretary un
adequate salary; the bulk of the work
of the Hoard falls on the Secretary and
it seems only fair that he should receive some remuneration for liis services.
Proper arrangements should also be
made for rental ot some room or hull sn
as to have tixed pluee of meeting.
1 would also recommend that tbo
Hoard of Trade he governed hy a Constitution and Bye-lawg.
In conclusion 1 beg to thank you for
the honor conferred upon me in clout-

tilled the position, at the same time I
must express my disappointment al

thus it costs Oc. por lie for ft

Only one cent more per 100

charged from Pernie to the same
