protested against the war in the Transvaal and expressed astonishment thnt
the rc(|iiesls for arbitral ion made by
the South African Republics hud not
found nn echo in Europe.
Lord Stanhope, one of the Kn^'li_h
delegates, Immediately rose nnd stated
thut the friends of peace in his country
bud done everything possible to prevent war. adding that it would be impossible for representatives of England to participate in a discussion implying tbe   least blame  on   England.
The presiding official tactfully turned the Impending storm by culling for
u vote on the following resolutions
which wero adopted: "This congress,
acting on The Hague resolutions, expresses its gratitude to those contributing to the results, in the linn hope
that the Powers will not neglect in
future to utilize the means at their
disposal for Hie appeasement of International conflicts, und also its regret
that they have not been able to do so.
Actual war in the Transvaal culls the
attention of the various delegates to
the duty devolved on them to cull the
attention of their respective governments to the obligations the Powers
contracted in giving adhesion to The
Hague resolutions.'

Washington, I). C. Aug. 3���Seoretary Ray's reply lo l.i Hung Chung
has closed the negotiations with China
unless the old Viceroy is able to secure the full acceptance of the terms
submitted by the United States relating to the foreign Ministers and   that
at once. No orders, therefore, looking to thc relaxation of the proparar
tions for the advance on Pekin, have
gone out from Washington, for us the
situation is described by one of thc
leading offloials here, "There will be
no bargaining on our part in advance
of the concession by the Chinese authorities of full and free communication with the foreign Ministers.''
There is moreover a note ominously
close to actual declaration of war In
Secretary Hay's assertion thut the

Hoonlly largo to embrace thi' consideration of how best to raise and  expend

tion of roads and bridges, and other
means of Internal communication ns
these matters aro so Intimately connected with thc development of the
mineral wealth of tlie Province."
The following resolution was endorsed without discussion on motion

populous.   Take till those out. and our
Province would make a   poor showing
in comparison witli others in the
Dominion, If British Columbia carries a high head todny among the
largely if
family of   Provinces,   it is
not  mainly  because  it  embraces the
places   mentioned.    What their representative   business   men   say   on  any

to the greatest respect   and consideration.    In   the   above   resolution thoy
say   in   effect   that   our   forests   are
exposed to dangers against which they
should he protected, nnd  they venture
to  point  out  the lines on which this
could   best   be   done.    If   the Government  and   Legislature   have the good
BenHe to appreciate   the gravity of the
situation, thoy will give   hood to   the
recommendations which Mr. Buohanan
has   introduced,   at   once   witli   such
brevity   and   comprehensiveness, into
the resolution passed by tlie Associated
Boards of Trade.
It is only the Government und   Legislature  that    can   act   with   effect;
others can do no more than advise   or
recommend.    We are not asking for a
more efficient preservation of our forests because we  are   afraid  of  being
burned up or out.    It  is not  pleasant
to contemplate that our towns may lie
burnt about   our ears,   and   the   products of our industry   consumed    inn
night.    Wo could rebuild   our   towns,
no doubt, and in   thc  course of   time
rcgather about us the little properties
on whieh we depend for n competence
in the evening of life.    There is more
than this at stake.    Our population is
on the inereuse.    Mining   prospectors
are penetrating into all sorts of places,
Soon there will he  industries   of   one
kind or another established   in  every
section   of   the   country.     With   the
spread of population   and tlie   growth

I n conclusion,
of President of Associated Boards ofj^Sffli^n'S
Trade of Eastern B. C.
The annual address of the president
of the Assoolnted Boards of Trade of
Eastern liritish Columbia, which wns
delivered at the opening of the joint
meeting yesterday by Mr. J.S, Fraser,
of Hosslaud, the retiring president, is
an able discourse and, containing, as
it does, references to Home of the most
important questions of the dny. is
worthy of the attention and consideration or all those who have at heart
. the interests of the Kootenay. The
Miner takes pleasure In publishing
it in full.    It is as follows:
Gentlemen: It (fives me a great
deal of pleasure ami 1 esteem it a high
honor to be thus enabled to greet for
the second time, the representatives
of the business interests in the eastern
portion of our Province. I am sure
you will all rejoice with me i" noting
that we have among us this year, delegates from several Boards of Trade
whieh did not participate In the pro-
needlngs of our first convention, Their
presence undoubtedly Indicates that
the work of that convention met with
the hearty approval of the people of
Carrlboo, Vale and Kootenay, whose
interests this association is primarily
intended to serve. It also just Hies.
in my opinion, the expectation of the
founders of this organization, that, by
meeting together like this occasionally, we would lie enabled to work together harmoniously for the development and prosperity of our respective
That there was need of an organization of this kind is also proved by the
promptitude with which the Hoards of
Trade of the Interior have become
members. It should be B matter of
pride to us and must add great weight
to the work of this convention, if we
continue to act in the future on broad,
conservative lines, recognizing no sectional or jealous spirit, that every
Hoard of Trade in Ihe Province of
whieh we have any knowledge, outside of those of the Const cities, participate in our deliberations.
Owing to the fact that the regular
session of the Provincial Legislature
following our first convention, resulted in a political crisis which has only
now been brought to an end, it has
been impossible to secure any legislation on the many questions affecting
Provincial affairs witli which that
convention dealt, anil I would therefore recommend that the resolutions
adopted last year be taken up again,
and, if found advisable, reaffirmed, so
that they may be brought freshly to
the attention of the new Ministry.
Amon^r these are many matters
about which there can lie no controversy, The name "Boundary District," which has become a household word iu mining circles, should
be found on all maps of the Province.
The necessity of Issuing quarterly
bulletins, giving information with regard to thc output of our mines, is
only becoming more apparent as we
realize what the wide dissemination
of such information, by the Governments, has done for other countries
and colonies. The question of the
best methods of obtaining funds for
and properly constructing wagon
roads, ete, throughout the mining
districts, is even more of n burning
issue now than it was a year ago.
The need of increased parliamentary
representation for the Interior is one
which should be settled before another session. The facilities for the
transaction of publio and court business in Vale and Kootenay are not
yet what they should be ami I would
especially direct your attention to
the injustice done the Interior
hy reason of there being no
resident Supreme Court Judge.
The public schools arc still inadequately provided for, especially ill the
matter of teaohor'B salaries, which arc
the same as paid on the Coast where
cost of living is much less. Government maps showing occupied land cannot yetbe obtained. Municipalities containing producing mines arc still unjustly saddled wilh thc whole cost   of
constructing and maintaining mining
roads. The Nelson Land Registry oflice is yet unopened. No school of
mines has yet heen established, Mine-
owners are still being compelled to
pay royalty on timber used by them
for mining purposes, when cut off
their own claims, in contravention of
the Mineral Act, and the right of
holders of mineral claims to purchase
their surface rights is still undefined,
I am sure that you will all have read
with pleasure that the Provincial
Government intends appointing a
commission to enquire into the workings of the various acts affecting the
mining industry and water rights.
Nothing has done more harm to the
Province of late years than the hasty
and ill-considered legislation on these
subjects, and it is a matter for sincere
congratulation that it now looks
as if a rational and conservative
policy of enquiry lirst and action afterwards, instead of action
first and consideration afterwards.
were to be pursued. I would recommend that this convention should
appoint a committee of three or more
to act as the representatives of this
association before the commission,
and that tbe Government should he
so notified.
While on this subject I would like
say  that  in   my personal opinion
the greatest good this commission
could do would he to give an assurance that no radical change would be
made In the existing laws affecting
the mining industry, and 1 trust that
the conclusions of the commissioners
will be such as to indicate to all
(governments the InndvlHabllaty of
making continual chunges in thc miu
ing laws. Capitalists would then
know under exactly what conditions
they would operate and would not he.
ns in the past, in constant dread of
serious changes made without proper
consideration and without consulting
all the parties interested, by whom I
mean the capitalist, mine-owner,
prospector. working miner and
The Government, I am also pleased
to note, lias promised to finance the
Agent-General's otlice in London, on
a basis commensurate with the amount
of good it can do if properly officered.
In this connection I would suggest
that this convention impress upon the
Government that the greatest usefulness of this ollice to the Province lies
in the way of properly bringing to
the attention of the capitalists of
Great Britain, the unequalled mineral
resources of the country, and this can
only he done liy choosing i'or Agent-
General nnil tlu' members of his stall',
persons thoroughly familiar with the
variety, extent and value of the mineral wealth of our Province, and who
nre not in any way connected witli
the promotion of public companies,
either local or foreign,
While on the subject of interesting
the capitalists of Great Britain in our
mineral resources. I would suggest
thai you urge upon the Provincial
Government the advisability of arranging for a really interesting and
adequate presentation of tlie mineral
wealth of onr Province at tlie exposition at Glasgow, Scotland, next year.
Besides a thoroughly comprehensive display of our ores. it
would lie well to have a report specially prepared by the Provincial Mineralogist, giving up-to-date statistics
of the Province's production and brief
descriptions of tlie principal mines,
of whieli a large enough edition
should lie printed to permit of every
Interested visitor being given a copy,
and the ditVerent Hoards of Trade
might supplement this report with
brief bulletins on their respective districts. A good collection of photographs should also be exhibited and
some special feature, such as a stump
mil] in operation or a working model
of a big mine, should be added to
make the exhibit striking and attractive.
A matter of some importance to
which I beg to draw your attention is
the necessity of a law requiring tile
approval of the local municipal authorities before permitting the plat
of an addition lo an incorporated city
io he registered by the Department of
Lands and Works. In several Instances lately, especially at Hosslaud.
additions have heen platted whose
streets do not conform to those of the
original townslte, the arrangement
being strongly disapproved of by the
municipal authorities, who are, however, helpless in the matter.
1 hear constant complaint of the excessive cost of incorporation under the
Company Lawsof the province, especially ;is they affect mining, and I am glad
to note that this most Important subject will he brought up for discussion
by the Knslo Board. Another complaint needing investigation is that
concerning tho excessive cost of registering titles to mineral claims.
Iu regard to matters coming under
the control of the Dominion Government, I -in pleased to report that the
lion. Mr. Mulock, the Postmaster-
General, personally investigated the
complaints of .his body Inst year,
with the result thut our grievances
were speedily redressed and the postal
service throughout Vale and Kootenay
very materially improved. 1 have no
doubt thai ill so rapidly growing a
community as Ibis there will, from
time to time, be dofectain the service,
but. 1 think, thnt reasonably grounded complaints from this Association
or from any ofthe Hoards of Trade
in Ihe district, will always he
promptly attended lo.
I have also the pleasure of reporting
to you that the Hon. Mr. Blair, Minister of Railways, has succeeded in
securing (lie passage of a hill dealing
with the grievance wc brought to his
attention, namely the ignoring of
established towns along tbeir lines by
new state aided railways.
One of the most important matters
dealt with liy this Association at its
last meeting, was tlie lend question.
This has since been dealt   witli hy the
Dominion Government on the lines recommended by us. nnd 1 am glad to
say that everything is working
smoothly and this country is now receiving the full benefit to he derived
from treating its own lend ores within its own boundaries,and an industry
heretofore non-existent in Canada has
been successfully established,
Since we last met the military spirit
of our citizens have been aroused by
the war In Soutli Africa, now happily
nearly over, in which our contingent
has by its valor, added new lustre to
thc name of our fair Dominion. When
volunteers were called for, thc interior
of British Columbia responded in such
a manner that a whole regiment could
easily have been recruited. Since
then there has been a marked increase
In enthusiasm for service and the
local battalion of militia conld, with
proper encouragement from the Dominion Government, he at least doubled in strength, while, acting on Lord
Salisbury's    suggestion,   rifle   dubs
have been organized all over the district. I would therefore suggest thai
