At the request of the presidents of
tin* boards, in all of the cities in
which municipal elections were due
to occur on the 18th inst, which was
the day nfier thc day fixed by the
constitution for our meeting, I announced a postponement of our session for two weeks.
The intervening week was that set
for the curling bonsplol at Kossland,
an event in which our secretary and
several other ot our active members
were interested, and it was on this
account not available for our meeting.
Wc have had within the year industrial peace and prosperity within

although all other tarifl changes
wore held iu abeyance.
The commission to investigate the
zinc resources of the district and to

the summer iu tlie held and bas now

is ultimately to give our friends in
the Boundary districts an alternative outlet to the main line of the
Canadian Paeilie railway.
1 regard the creation of a Dominion Department o£ Mines, as (from
our point of view) one of the mosl
Important things that we have ever
asked for. The resolutions adopted
at our last meeting on ihis subject
were duly forwarded to the Dominion Government and were particularly urged upon tbe attention of the
Minister of lite Interior, the active
representative in the cabinet of western interests, and the minister who
already 1ms as a branch ot bis department, the geological survey and
the mining bureau.
In reply the honorable minister assured us of bis hearty acquiescence
in tbe proposal, and bis intention to
advocate ils adoption.
Events that have since occurred
have also tended to create generally
;;•■ political circles tlie impression
ihat such a change is contemplated
in the near future.
Thc executive has within the last
few days again put the matter before tlie Right Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier, and this convention will be asked to endorse further efforts in the
same direction
Thc territory represented by this
Association is par excellence the
mining district of Canada, and it
devolves upon us to take a leading
part in the agitation for proper recognition of our industry.
lu the matter of an act which was
last year proposed in the provincial
legislature, oompulsorily limiting to
eight hours, the length of a day
which any man might work in a
smelter, thc passage of which act
was opposed by this association. The
outcome has been that the act was
not adopted, hut the matter has been
taken up, by friendly negotiation between the employers and the employees, at all the smelters within
our territory and amicably settled.
Boards of trade are always in favor of tlie adjustment of such question by mutual concession, and are
always prepared to lend their help
to bring about such adjustments.
Boards of trade are always in favor of the utmost liberality of treatment of employees, that is consistent with the life and prosperity of
the Industry concerned.
Hoards of trade are always in
favor of measures calculated to pro-
mole the health and safely of labor-
lug men.
Hoards of trade on the other hand
object t-o legislation, arbitrarily altering lhe basis of contract as lietweeu Individuals, arbitrarily depriving Individuals of the right of
contract, and to legislation loading
the statute book with restrict ions,
eiitorcable by penalties, directed
against actions (such as overtime
work) which actions are in themselves strictly legitimate, and which
may at times he absolutely necessary.
Some attempt was made by the
provincial legislature at its last
session toward dealing with the
preservation of forests.
A few forest rangers were appointed, and were on duty fiom May
first until September 80th.
These officials seem to have had
at their disposal, neither money with
which to employ men to fight fires,
nor statutory provisions under which
prosecutions    could    be successfully
maintained  against   those  >■
fur the Otlgin of fires.
Within our territory and pmli.il.iy
also in many other parts of the
province, tin* last Bummet li.is been
one of the worst on record as regards fi'icsi destruction.

We arc asked to join in congratulation beoause the provincial budget shows a surplus nf receipts  ovei

applaud this result, imi wc must Bet
against this surplus of cash in the
treasury, the grim fact that the ro-
sources of llie pim [nee have been
depleted to lhe extent of millions oi
dollars hy the destruction ol timber, which destruction might have
been by strenuous effort and a
iiuwlerate expenditure prevonted.
The time is rapidly passing, dining whicli the fiction cau lie successfully maintained, that North America, or indeed any country in the
world, with the possible exception ii
Siberia, has in reserve any eon
able slock of timber.
As regards onr own terrilo
think we should recommend In
provincial governmeul   lhat:
l. A larger number ol fire
dens be appointed.
'i.   Such  wardens must  have
(a) To employ in emergency all
Heeded  assistance.
(b) To  investigate  tlie  or.gin  ol
all   unlawful    fires,

(c) To employ   counsel  for
conduct of prosecutions.
d.   Such  wardens    be  held  slue
and    li
responsible  for    the     ctiicii nt     discharge uf their duties.

In lbs connection 1 beg lo remind
you of a resolution adopted al om

in whicli we asked tlie provincial government to set apart Roniewoeru in
Lhe pine lands of lbe valleys of thc
Columbia or Koolcnay rivers iu Kast

A railway to run north and south

1 believe that this convention will
do all it can Lo assist lbe communities which have fur several years
pasl, zealously aud perseveringly
promoled this project.
Tlie lower lying lands of the district are becoming famous for tho
production of fruit and berries.
Tliis business has become an important and welcome addition to our
list of available industries.
Those Interested have before us
several matters whicli for theii welfare require adjustment.
Efforts to prevent the Introducton
of fruit pests, or lo supplest ihem
in their incipient slages, mean great
future economy.
I trust thai the m[in-sis ol Uie
fruit men, for tlie means ol protection, will be strongly emimasizod by
the convention,
I presume that from this year ami
onward, our successors in olliee will
collect and publish statistics of al
least that portion of the crop thai
is marketed.
As a starting point, I may suggest, that there are now planieil in
our district 4l),0UU fruit trees and
200 acres of berries, ami that tho
product iast year was worth $laU,-
I estimate the cut of lumber last
year to have been 135,l)uu,umi feet,
an increase over tlie year before of i
35,000,000 feet. ' !
The marketing conditions were not1
wholly satisfactory, uml the mill i
did not turn out more than one half'
of* their nominal capacity.
Some of tbe new mills arc models'
of mechanical skill and ingenuity and |
for economy and efliciency will bear
comparison with any saw mills in
thc world.

enilit or nine people aboard,
The following is Hie story of (i,
Willis, one of Uie passengers, and one
of  lhe  men   rescued   from   lhe  raft:
"The ship struck al 12.117 on Friday morning. 1 was on deck at tho
lime smoking a cigar and was look-
ing at my watch when Hie first crash
came. In an instant all was excite-
meul. There were the shrieks of
lhe frightened men and women, tbe
wail of liltic children and the hoarse
orders of the officers of the ship. The
vessel reeled like a drunken man,
slid over lhe reef nnd struck a^ain.
"Tbe command to back her off  was
given and     she went   astern at    full
speed,     hut   it   was    loo lale.     The
aler was pouring in like a millract
sight we determined io maki
fort to reach her in the life raft.
A few of Hie men cared lo make Hie
attempt, as it appeared to be certain ileal'!] to even try lo cross the
breakers, Imt nineteen of us were willing and we started. Willi only a
pair of oars, the simple
against Ihe wind and sea was almost too much for us.
"Pari of lhe time we were under
water and were almost drowned, but
we were impelled liy desperation ami
fought against the elements like demons.
"We bad a man upright in the center of lhe raft and had blm wave a
shirt on a pole. When we saw the
schooner turned we llioughl she had
overlooked us and was going away.
If she had we would have died righl
t hero.
"When we left the ship we tried
to get some of the remaining women
to go with us hul  thev refused.   No Iia  .

The band committee of the winter
carnival at Rossland has at length
finished its labors and filed a report.
its chief duty was to secure a proper brass bami to play during each
night and day of the carnival, commencing on Wednesday, February 7th.
It was found t-o lie impossible to
organize a band for carnival purposes
in the city, even by drawing from
Trail. Applications were received
by t-lie commititee from tlie Nelson,
Greenwood and Colville bands to
furnish the music needed.
After considerable deliberation the
committee decided to engage the
.Greenwood band, a musical organization ot more than local reputation,
ot which A. D. Hallett, a very
capable musician, is tlie leader.

Six months pusslng as a single
nighl; dropping io sleep in California, awaken inn in a foreign land,
thousands of miles across the sea,
retiring in allluent circumstances,
arising a beggar; passing into ilu-
"dentil of each day's life" a happy
married man, returning to conso.ous-
ness ;i widower—these ale the
si range experiences undergone by
William A. Smith, special organizer
of ibe American federation of Labor, in California, who arrived in this
cily on Monday on  lhe liner Sierra.
When Irving in his comfortable library evolved tbe story of Kip Van
Winkle he doubtless thought his fiction was witboiii semblance iu life,
yet Hie story of Smith's adventure is
as marvelous as lhat wterd tale of
ihe mount ains.
One night bile last June Smith
dropped to sleep in a railway ear,
en route from Los Angeles In San
Francisco, Tbe next morning, as he
llioughl, he awoke in a strange
room. Rubbing his eyes, he gazed
ahoul lum. Il was a sordid room,
unlike any he was accustomed lo iu
habit, lie arose and lifted the curtain. The country be looked upon
was unlike anything he had seen in
Cml fornin, and he knew lhe State
well. Descending Hie stairs, be
found himself among people as unfamiliar ;is bis surrounding*;. They
taliped English, but wiih a foreign
"Where am I?" asked Smith, addressing one nf the men,
"Where are you'.'" reiterated the
stranger. "Well, you must have
been among good company lasl night.
You're in New Wales', of course.
Where did vou expect   lo he?"
"What month is Ihis,'" The company gazed at Smilh iu amazement.
"Vou look sane eiioiurh." vvas the
reply, "vou yotl ask idiotic [(tics-
lions. 'This is December. Would
vou like di have jl   altered?"
The man spoke triMh. Half a
year had elapsed since Smilh closed
his eves m the California train,
In thai lime be had crossed half tho
globe. When he told his story lus

There cannot be different degrees

If a man be honest, thai is all he

One flour cannol be purer than

In these times when all llmir man-

my opinion been greally exaggerated

is safe to say that not one acre in
