'  Cicntmcmkn-:���In keeping with  the custom among organizations  such as ours, il devolves upon me  as President to address you in Annual General Meeting "a��semhled,  and the more is this incumbent on  me at this lime, as notwithstanding  my absence and consequent inability  to present a report at your last Annual 'Meeting ��� which leek was,  however, ably supplied by ���your  worthy Vice.-President, who presented a very commendable report  ���you were good enough to honour  me'with'a second term of office.  . As this meeting closes1 the second  year of our organized existence it  will be in' order for me to give a  short resume of the work done or  undertaken by your Board, which  has at all times aimed at forwarding  an- ' promoting the best interests of  tlui��� -community .. and", district, in a  broad and comprehensive > sense,  and, although not always successful  in accomplishing all that was desired, has much cause for gratification at the results attained.  Meetings:���The Board of Trade  held eight Regular meetings and  one Special during 1900 and nine  Regular meetings this year, while  the Council held thirty Regular  aiid five Special meetings iu igoo1  and thirty-six Regular ami one'  Special meeting this year, or for  rgoi.  Among the many matters dealt  with by your Council I will'mention  a few, and, in order of importance  perhaps, comes first:  I'kiu'oht   &   Transportation  Charges. The exhorbilaut charges  imposed   by the \V. P. & Y.  route  for all classes   of merchandise  has  been one of the greatest hmderances  to the development  of this district'  and your Council  have  repeatedly1  endeavored lo obtain redress by ap-1  peal  to  the  \V..  P. & Y.  manage-'  ment by  letter  and  by interviews  with their Managers and  representatives, by soliciting trie  co-operation of sister  bodies in   the Coasl  Cilies; by appeal lo the   Provincial  Government  and to the Premier in  person, and, last,  but  perhaps  uot:  least, by  appeal  to the Minister of  Railways and Canals at Ottawa.   It  ��������� 1  is gratifying to.learn that action has,  been taken by die Dominion Government aiid that the W.. P. & Y. Co.  have'been peremptorily required to  make a substantial reduction in  their rates, and, further, that the  charges hitherto imposed by them  are practically declared illegal by  no less an authority than the Min  uter of Railways and Canals, an I  Hie illegal excess recoverable iu  a court of law.  Pi.ackr   Mininc;  Act AND  Ap-  l'OINTMKNT OV COUNTV CoiiKT'  JiJDGi'.:���Of perhaps equal importance was the necessity for Amendment of the Placer Mining Act and  Ihc appointment of a-County Court  Judge competent to deal with all  local matters, who should be resident in the district.  The facility with which all sorts  of dishonest and vexations'interference with prior " rights could be  practiced under the Placer Mining  Act was a most prolific source of  trouble and detriment to the development and best intercuts of the  district. .    "   '  The fact that the same plot of  ground could be located and recorded over' and over and record  fees therefor ' accepted by the Government, through their officials,  was a standing disgrace to the  Legislature and a humiliation to  every honest Canadian.  Recognising these facts, your  Council early applied themselves lo  suggest a remedy and after much  careful, study and infoimation  gleaned from almost every available  source, your Board suggested to  the Government a series of Amendments to the Placer Mining Act  ���some of which were adopted,���  which, if adopted in their entirety,  I confidently believe would ha\e  practically precluded any recurrence  of the above-mentioned reprehensible acts.  The   appointment   of a  County  Con: t Judge,   who  should be resident  in the district,   has  been re-  .peatedly   urged   upon   the proper  authorities  and should be unremittingly7 pursued until obtained.    Indeed, I think the absence of serious  crime, under  the  circumstances, is  an  evidence  of 'the wholesome respect that obtains for Canadian and  British law and   justice  generally*  and also pays  a high tribute to the.  integrity  and law abiding instincts  ol the comtuunitj7.  . While on this subject, I may say-  that one of the  most serious drawbacks to the  development   of   thiR  district   is  the distrust with whiclv  capitalists  (particularly American)1  regard   the  enactments of the Provincial   Legislature   and  the difficulties   attendant on   obtaining indisputable title lo mining property��  and it should   be the aim ot   every  cilizen   to  do his utmost to remove  such   cmbargos   from the develop--  nienl  of a  Province where Nature  has been so prolific   in   furnishing  material   and   opportunity   for  investment in tempting profusion.  The rapid and successful development of the district will never be  undertaken as its importance warrants until the cost of living for  man and beast is materially reduced,  and title to mining property is fixed  upon a-.more stable basis than at  present.

Saturday, Jan.," nth,   1902.  Tini 'Second Annual Repoil of  the Atlin District Board of Trade is,  a very creditable one, and the efforts put forth by the, Board show  conclusively   that as a public' body  .the Board has unquestionably  proveel   its   value.     It  is an undc-  ��� niable fact that without such an  organization many of the privileges  and concessions which we now enjoy could   not   possibly   have been  'obtained, while it is equally true  that individual action could never  have obtained them lor us. Asa  public body, dealing with all matters appertaining to our common  weal, it is but right to look for a  larger representation of the com-  r.-iuuity on the membership roll  than the Board'now has.  .Thh reference made in the annual report of the Atlin District  Board of Trade lo the 'unstable  condition of British Columbia politics, is very plainly dealt with in  the following extract, taken from a  London financial journal, of an interview with Mr. Robert Ward, one  of the Province's most prominent  merchants. ��� On his recent arrival  in London he was asked as to why  British Columbia was not so well  spoken of in Kuglaud today as it  was aforetime, said: "Well, I  would rather not say much about  that, for to tell the truth, British  Columbia is not so well spoken of  in England as it was. Mischievous  mining legislation and political unrest have had a serious effect on  the standing of B.- C. in England,  particularly in quarters where mining interests are discussed and considered. It is thought that too  much legislation" of this kind has  not only brought about the high  cost of labour, but considerable  taxation, which, in its present  shape, is iniquitous. The investor  feels that if he puts money into ventures out here, it is difficult to see  satisfactory returns. Under these,  conditions, it is difficult lo interest  people in British Columbia, and it is  humiliating to a British Columbian  to hear his country disparagingly  spoken of. The sooner there is  less mischievous legislation and  ; fairer dealing with those who invest money iu the big concerns of  the country, the belter it will be  the interests of the Province abroad.  " It is the eight-hour law and the  subsequent legislation which imposed unfair taxation on mining  companies that is most complained  of, and when matters are remedied,  British Columbia Will no doubt regain its position, for the natural resources of the country fully warrant every, attention ; in fact, it is  regarded that, as far as the country  is concerned, it possesses unbounded  natural wealth, and every possible!  facility should be given for its de  velopineul."  Continued from First Page.  Mkihcai." Act ��� Amendments :  Another matter undertaken by  your Board through your Council  was the amendment of the Medical  Act so that in outlying districts,  such as ours, all graduates of the  Colleges of the United Kingdom  and Canada be allowed to practice  their profession without going  through the formality of passing an  examination'in this Province.   ���  This matter'was laid before the  Legislature through our Representatives but at such a late date that  through the'determined opposition  of those who benefit by the existing  arrangements nothing was 'accomplished, but the request is so manifestly reasonable ' and , important  that I trust your Board will again  take up ,thc matter and press it to a  successful issue. While the Government was good enough to appoint a salaried Medical Health  Officer for the district as requested  by your Board, it. does not follow,  nor is . it fair or right, that the  whole community should lie restricted to, or compelled, in case of  need, to employ'such practitioner  when perhaps theie are 'other  equally capable,-though unlicensed,  medical men in ihc community  who would act when occasion requires, but for the embargo at present imposed by the necessity for  a license.  Board 01-* -Hkalth: ��� Your  Board has each year appointed a  ���Hcalth-committcc, who-have looked  after the sanitary condition of the  camp and have been ready to  co-operate with or make suggestions  to the Government Agent as to  what was requisite or desirable in  the best interests of the community  ���the suppression or prevention of  contagious diseases, etc.  Educational Mattkrs:���Your  Board through the Council have repeatedly urged upon the Provincial  Government the needs and rights  of the district iu the matter of  School facilities for Atlin and Dis  covery, and by continued effort  secured, for Discovery, a school  while they had any reasonable  number of pupils to attend same,  and for Atlin, a fairly liberal allowance, which has made possible the  employment of a high grade  teacher, with very excellent results,  and with the further promise of  such a subsidy as will provide for  the erection of a suitable and commodious building adequate to our  requirements, during the coming  summer.  Mail Mattkrs: ��� Your Board  through the Council have from time  to time memorialized the Dominion..  Government with reference to mail  facilities, with the result, that notwithstanding the annoyances and  hindrances that have occasionally  transpired, this community is in  the enjoyment of better mail service and facilities than perhaps any  community of like age, size and  location in the Dominion, of Caimda  or for that matter on the American  Continent.  Upon your represent;.lion the salary of t.hi".' ���Po.-il.iuasic-r ;il Discoveryj  was   increased   as   requested,   aiid ;  of Dr. H.,B. Cameron and others  for a branch post-office- al Spruce  Junction was granted, and' Mr.'  Muirhead appointed Postmaster,  but owing to his suspension of business and the transitory movements  of the petitioners the branch office  was not opened! ' Through' the efforts of your Council the'rental of  postofiice boxes was reduced fifty  per cent,   thus   placing   those faci  lities within the reach, of everybody  and this community practically on  an equal footing in this respect with  the inhabitants of towns and cities  outside.        ,      *''  Customs:���Your Council have  also had considerable correspondence with reference to Customs  charges and regulations and have  made, repealed efforts to have  Atlin constituted a   Port, of Entry  rsiViUc-  #���  m  Mining  -Machinery.

Their efforts would undoubtedly  ihave been crowned wiili success  but that transhipment at , Taku  would necessitate the placing of  a Customs Officer there and the  business of the district . docs not  warrant the maintenance of two  officers-so near each other.  Diamond Urili,:���Your Board  iilsw ^endeavoured lo induce the  Governm-ciit to supply a Diamond  Drill for use "in the district, .as is  done l>y the Government of the  Province of Ontario. The request  tliHs far has not been granted, but  the matter is of sufficient importance lo warrant your further efforts  for its procurement.  Advertising���Another matter  of considerable importance to the  district, undertaken by your Board,  .was the publishing and dissemination of correct and reliable information about the district, its location,  formation, resource^ etc. Their  first and mostf' elaborate move in  this direction was the publication  and distribution of a small pamphlet or folder, which was very carefully and creditably prepared and  widely distributed. �� Further efforts were in the form of newspaper correspondence^ awd latest in  the form of bulletins which are prepared under the censorship of a  cojnnmnttee of your Board and are  transmitted telegraphically. These  efforts should procure far reaching  .and satisfactory results and are,.in  any opinion, worthy of your continued support. Iu this connection  I would also mention oar local  newspaper, "The Atlin Claim,"  which has ever been energetic and  aggressive iu proclaiming the needs  and'wrongs of the district and demanding redress for the same. I  think the editorial staff deserve  strong commendation for the care  exercised in publishing only reliable  unews and in formation about tlie  district and for the absence from its  columns of sectional or personally i  abusive articles and communications.  Other matters   taken   up by the  Board through the Council, of mor,  or less local importance were.-���  The erection of suitable Govcrn-  anent buildings;  Additional jjraiiis fox roads and  trails.  A lock-ran, etc., at Pine City,  Flagging of winter trails.  Insurance matters.  Peddlers, etc., trading without  license.  Eire protection, - purchase of engine, etc.  Administration of the Liquor'  License Act.  Arbitration, which resulted in  procuring the erection of a stamp-  mill in the district, when litigation  And other annoying causes were!  likely t�� prevent sarnie.  The reception of !he Hon. the  Premier of the Province 'upon his  visit here last Fall, etc., etc.  All of which received at the  Ihauds of your Coiii.cil The attention  that their importance deserved.  111 addition lo the above, I would  remind- 'you   that   al   a   Citizen's  Meeting,     formally    convened   by  public notice and held   iu the Court  House on October  25th, 1900, your  Council      was      constituted       the  Fire Committee    for      the     town,  which    placed    the   lire engine and  appurtenances,      fire    halls,     night  watchman and all,, that pertained to  the' prevention   and suppression of  fires in the town under  their supervision and control ; all of which'entailed   considerable additional work  and responsibility, and all of which'  was   faithfully   and   efficiently   ad  ministered by   them,   carping   mal  contents   to   the   contrary notwith  standing. 1  ��� It is but right and fitting to acknowledge here the courtesy and  consideration with which the Government Agent. "'���!". I. D. Or*t!:��iu  a:;d h's rcpres'r.U.'1 ���> o, Mi. Tlriin.  have at all tiim.-. ;-.i civi ���! -ud titrated any requests and representations  which your Board or Council have  been pleased to make, and among!  these many courtesies is the pxivi-j  lege of using this room as a meeting  place since Sept. 13th, 1900.  While much has been accomplished, much still remains to be  done to secure that measure of  prosperity which the resources of  the distiict warrant us in expecting, "and in the absence of municipal or other organization, it devolves  upon your Board to continue to be;  ever ready to deal with   all matters1  affecting the  interests and   welfare:  1  of   the   town   and   district as they  may transpire or be anticipated.  While   the   number -of people in J  the district  during  the season just!  passed   was  not  as great as in the  two   previous  seasons   the  results  have  been   relatively more satisfactory.     For  this,   at  least two rca-i  sons ma>'  be  assigned, one, .is that;  as time progresses more systematic  prospecting of the various creeks is,  being done, with   the   result   that!  rich deposits are   beii.g continually  discovered   where  they   were   not  even   suspected.    This   applies  to  quartz as well,   and   taken  in conjunction with the  known  developments   in   placer,    hydraulic    and  quartz   properties in   the   district,  justifies the belief that-this is a district of immense resources which it  will   take   years  to exploit.    The  other-   reason   is  that a better and  more-desirable  class of men corn-  prises   the  inhabitants of the district now  than  formerly, again demonstrating    that    quality   rather  than quantity is most desirable.  We cannot hut admire the pluck  and energy that characterizes the  majority of the men who are drifting this winter on Spruce, Pine,  Willow, [Boulder,, Otter and McKee  creeks, and the very satisfactory  results in m<. .-1 ..m.;- "brined or in  prospective, uiv-. e^vim-viih ' ^nilih  ir.g to the p'i:-.i-i;..;:!.; ' themselves, to  the merchants who supply them  and, thus contribute to the development or the district, and to the  community at large.

Our banker friends., who  keep a close finger on the commercial pulse of the. country, will, I  think, bear me out when I say that  bank- deposits _ and volume of exports over imports have been  steadiiy increasing, until today,  they stand at an altitude never before attained in Canada. But when  the period of depression does come,  as it inevitably will, Avith resources  such as ours" which cannot suffer  from overproduction, -we should be  in a position to weather the storm  if proper and energetic attention is  paid to our requirements iu this our  formative period.  Secretary:���I  must  congratulate the   Board   Upon    its   fortunate1 we <lc> hereby request the said J. II.Mallaleu  ,,   - ,. r r, . and \\.   Ilolliugswortli   to contribute their  selection in -the. .matter .ot. Secretary  since organization. Your first. Secretary was capable and painstaking  while he continued actively to perform the duties of the office, and in  the present incumbent of that most  important office you have a gentleman who lends grace and dignity  to the position and whose integrity,  ability and attention to the duties  of the office are unexceptionable. I  trust you may see fit to retain his  services while you may.  Council: ��� While there have  been many changes in the personnel of the Councii since organization, it is but fair to state that those  wb��, from time to time, have constituted that important committee  have almost invariably given close  and intelligent attention to their  duties and the matters iu hand,  whether relating to the Board or  the Fire Department .and deserve  your best thanks for their services.  The frequency with which changes  in the personnel of Uae Council have  occurred is simply an evidence of  the tentative and ever-changing  conditions of our environment and  which require constant alertness'  on the part of those who would  make the most of them.  And now, Gentlemen, I desire to  express my grateful acknowledgment of the honour you conferredi  upon me by mating me your first1  President and, again, by re-electing  me for a second term and my appreciation of the unvarying courtesy with whicli I hawe been treated  by both Council and Board.  The 'marked absence of friction;  and unpleasantness of all kinds  which lias characterized our meetings and deliberations and which i  has rendered it a pleasure as well;  as an easy matter to preside, is very  largely attributable to the intelli-  gence and fairmindedness of the  gentlemen constituting the Board  and particularly the Council.  It will he your duty tonight to  select a new Council, from the President down. I bespeak for my  successor   the   same   courtesy and  Notice.  ���RTOTICE is hereby given that application  will be made to the Parliament of Canada, a* its next sittings for leave to incorporator railway compiiuy, called the " Ignite  Bennett Railway Company," to construct,  e<|iii]>, operate and maintain a railway from  a point on or near the Dyea river, on the International Boundary, between British  Columbia and Alaska, to a point at or near  r.ake Bennett, thence to a point on the Yukon river lit or near Selkirk in the Yukon  Territory.
