"My Dear Mr. President���1 have tho
honor lo enclose herewith for transmission lo congress the reporl of the
committee appointed by the Philippine commission to invesigate the use
of oiiium and the traffic therein and
the rules, ordinances and laws regulating such use and traffic ln Japan,
Formosa, Shanghai, Hongkong/ Saigon, Singapore, Burmah, .lava and
the Philippine islands.
"The law in force in the Philippine
islands under the government of
Spain made it unlawful for any Filipino to smoke or use opium in any
j way. It permitted, however, a licence
to issue for the maintaining of opium
smoking resorts to he patronized
only by the Chinese, and police supervision was exercised over the resorts
and any Filipino found there was arrested and punished. The owner of
the resort was also punished for conniving nt the Filipinos' violation of
tin- law.
"It is generally thought tha! the law
was fairly well enforced and thai tbe
spread of tlie use of th" drug among
the Filipinos was much retarded by
its enforcement. I'nder tlie law the
right to sell opium for smoking and
oilier purposes was farmed out in tii'
various provinces to u wholesale
dealer who purchased the privilege
ut a public auction.
���When the American troops entered
Manila and look possession of tlie
islands, ihe Spanish opium law was
; not continued in force. A duly was
| imposed on opium, and towns were
enjoined to pass ordinances forbidding the establishment of opium dives.
! Such information as the'commission
could obtain Indicated that, the suspension of tlie Spanish law had led
to an increase of the use of the drug
among tlie Filipinos. A resolution was
introduced in the commission following in some respects the Spanish law.
The hill abolished the smoking license
Und provided that no opium could he
i.eld to be smoked upon the premises,
'��� contained the feature of farming
cut the right to sell opium to Chinese
persons 21 years of age. Tlie bill was
advertised for three months, and
when it came beforj 'he commission
'ii open session It was discussed by
t embers of the pulp!: witli great
vigor. It was very vigor.usly opposed by the clergymen o. the city of
"Indeed, so strong was their objection that it led the commission to
table the hill and appoint  a commit
tee consisting of Maj. Carter, surgeon.
I'. S. A.,  chief sanitary officer of tlie
I islands: Dr. Joseph E. Albert, a promh
'nent Filipino physician of Manila, and
[the Right Rev. Charles H. fireni,
Episcopal bishop of the Philippines,
who were authorized to visit the
various Oriental countries to Investigate the measures taken by the different governments for the purpose
of suppressing tlie use ,,t opium. This
committee made its report to tlie
Philippine commission in June. i:mi.
The reporl was not transmits
tie- Philippine commi- on to this department until last July. Tlie time
Bince then has been taken up iu the
],riming of it and iu Ihe correi
of typographical ami othei errors contained  in  it.
"An informal copj nf the opium
reporl brought by Bishop Brent reported to tlie department a year ago
and   the   results   of   iis   contents   and
conclusions were transmitted to tlie
j committee nf tlie bouse nnd senate
j when they were considering the ques-
tion of tlie duty to ho imposed upon
!opium in :i hill providing for a tariff
Ion goods Imported into the Philip-
i pines. The result was the opinion "f
j the committee
"Opium:      (a)   Crude.   N.   \V���   kilo
$4;   (lit   the  same   manufactured  *
prepared   for  the  smoking  or  other
purposes,   X.   W.,   kilos,   $.",:   provided,
j however, thai  the Philippine commission or any    subsequent     Philippine
legislature,   shall   have   the   power   to
enact legislation to prohibit absolutely the Importation Dr sale of opium,
or to limit or restrict its Importation
and sale or adopt such other measures
as may be required for the suppression of the evils resulting from the
sule and u ���" of the drug: and, provided further, thai after March I,
1908, il shall lie unlawful to import
Into the Philippine islands in whatever form, except   |,y  the govern nt.
and at no time shall it be lawful to
sell opium to any native Filipino In
the islands except for medicinal purposes.
"There is now pending before the
Philippine commission a lull providing for the suppression of opium
smoking which penalizes the sale of
opium lo Filipinos or Its use by them.
It prohibits the sale of opium to any
Chinaman unless he be registered us
an habitual user of !he drug. License
tuxes are imposed on wholesale and
retail dealers, who are subject to close
[regulation and  scrutiny.    The text  of
jthe bill has not been received, but
only a cable summary.    The hill, if It
I becomes a law, will, by reason of the
congressional restriction above set
out, cease to have effect until April,
1908, and at that time all Importation
j cf opium Into the islands wdll cease
txcepl for medicinal purposes and the
importation for that purpose will he
made by the government only.
"The interval of two years before
the absolute prohibition applies is
made in accordance with the successful policy adopted In Formosa by the
Japanese, who did not put into operation the prohibition until after three
years of preparation, during which
licenses were imposed and a registered list of habitual users was rei
quired.   The proposed license bill fol

Still another matter which has boon
agitating the public for some time,
was brought up by the Hoard last
night, namely the electrifying of the
('. P. R, main line spur us far as Mill-
side. Some time ago an
agreement was reached whereby the
it. C, Electric Railway Co. could take
over the roue!, and electrify It. As yet,
this agreement lias never been considered advisable, nl: hough it would admittedly be :t good thing for residents
along this line, should tlie agreement
go into effect, However, Superintend
dent Marpole, of the C, P. u.. and
Qeneral Manager Sperling, of the B,
c Electric, have staled their intention of geiiing together   al an early
date With 0 view tO electrifying tlu1
road as  far as  Millside,  In  order that
a quicker service nia\ he Inaugurated for the benefit   of the people   at
Millside who desire n more frequent
service between the two points. If tho
proposed  change  lakes  place,  II   will
also mean a cheaper fare to Millside,
as the B, 0.   Eleetrlo Co. will   make
several trips n day, which wlll enable
them to lower the present rate.
Ladner   Proposition.
Other railroad matters In which the
B. C. Eleotrlc Hallway Co. figure prominently  were    discussed,    nnd many
valuable   suggestions    were   offered.
The coining visit of Mr.  Huntzen,    of
the ii. c. Eleotrlc, caused much comment among the members as it is desirous to bring to his attention several  oilier matters  in  the  hope    (hat
they will receive direct attention

brought   to his attention  with a  view  sary In order    to save    the trade   of
Ladner before Vancouver takes it
away from New Westminster in much
lhe same way in which they gained
conlrol of the business along Iho
Steveston electric line. It was pointed out that at one time all this
trade was tributary to New Westminster, ami that had the local people
realized the necessity of protecting
this trade that the same conditions
would prevail today. This subject
was Introduced by J. T, Trapp, who
succeeded in making It very clear to
the hoard that negligence in the mat-
tor of trade with Ladner meant cerJ
tain deatli to business interests in
that district at least, as Vancouver
was waging u very energetic campaign for commercial supremacy over
New Westminster in the matter of the
river trade.
D, S. Curtis, president of the
board, heartily endorsed the statements of Mr. Trapp in this respect as did other members of the
Wants   Double   Track.
T. s. Anna���dale then Introduced a

liine now under course of 'construction from Seattle northward, which
will he joined nt Blaine by the Van-
couver-Praser Valley and Southern

for charter to the Dominion government. Mr. Tn. lor stated that It was
the intention of this company to pass
by New Westminster, and make Mud

asked to reconsider Ihoir plans In thls)

II. D, Thrift staled that he had rein
responded with an eastern representative of n large fibre manufacturing
establishment, relative to the erection
ed' a factory at tills point, He pointed
out Ihat certain portions of Pitt

the growing of fibre flax or hemp.
The object of these eastern people was
to eslajiisli  a cordage  factory In Ibis
disirhi if possible, for tho manufacture of twine, fishing nels, etc, und
Mr. Thrift recommended thai negotiations be Instituted with these people
at   the   earliest     possible   date.     The

In lhe mailer of enquiries for mill
Bites,   Mr.   Mlntborne   slaleil   that   he
hud nn enquiry from A. C. W.  Piper,
stating that the object in view was
not political, litt! thai i! was rather
that of local representation In the
senate, Independent of partisanship
in any form whatsoever. This stnlo-
lnent not being sufficiently satisfactory to It. D. Thrift he boldly recommended that the hoard officially endorse Mr. .1. ('. Brown, but did not
get very tar with his eulogy of Mr.
Drown before boing called lo order
by the president, who endeavored
to explain tha difference between ihn
proposals of Mr. Thrift and Mr.
Taylor, and stated that while the latter was quite in order In M^ (recommendation thnt. the former was decidedly OUl of order In endeavoring
to   Introduce  the  candidature    of  an
Individual. Unconscious, however, of
his previous statements, Mr. Curtis
lowed himself to comment on the
candidature of Hubert Kelly, although   llis    objection     was    directed
againsl the appointment of a Vancouver man rather than'against Ma*
Kelly    personally.      w.   .1.   Mathers
favored asking the mayor to call a
public meeting tor the purpose of endorsing Mr. Brown's candidature.
This   was  also   ruled   out,    as    being
nioro or less political, and beyond tho
Jurisdiction of a Hoard of Trade. After considerable discussion on the
part of different members, Secretary
While caino to tho. rescue with tho advice that tho hoard might adjourn,
and the various members privately
endorse Mr. Brown's candidal lire In
the form of a petition to tho premier,
and tho llonornhlo William Temple-
mnn. This advice was put Inlo affect
in the form of u motion by T. S
Annandalo,  seconded    by    .lames  An"
darson, who moved  an adjournment
after which tha petition was signed
by  a  largo  numbur  of  tbe  members
of  Vancouver,  who asked   for  a Bite
for the establishment  of a  saw nnd
shingle  mill.  This enquiry  wiib  refer	
red to the committee of Industries.: Among other Items of Importance
Mr. Mlntborne also stated that he j to the citizens wns a communication

response to a request of the board, as
to the sorting of mull on Sunday. Mr.
Kennedy stated thnt this meant a
great deal of oxtrn work on the part
of himself nnd his staff, and slated
that the loss of u portion of Sunday's
rest was another consideration. However, he stated that    he would    en*
take up tho matter of a roconimenda- fdohvor to sort the mnil In order that
