Third Annual Meeting a Most Successful One-Important  Resolutions Passed.���Declare for an Open Door  Policy for Railways.���New County Boundaries.���The President's Address.  JLR Sperry Company, ��!&  ���~M-S  The third annual convention of the  associated Boards of Trade of Eastern  British Columbia, opened at Greenwood on Friday-morning-, 1st inst. It  had been intended . to commence the  business on Thursday but owing* to  the train having been delayed on the  Columbia and Westeriv Railway in the  snoun-kins east of Cascade . by snow-'  slides for about eight hours, the majority of the delegates did not arrive-,  in Greenwood until nearly midnight,  so that it was out^ of the^question to  rheet that night.  Next morning the delegates were in1  attendance at 10 o'clock at" the city  hall, courteously -placed at their disposal by the city council. In "the unavoidable absence in.California of the  president of the associated boards,  Mr. J. .Roderick Robertson, of Nelson,  Mr. C. Scott Gallo\yay, president of  'the Greenwood: board of trade, was  voted to the chair. . After he had welcomed the visiting delegates, the following were appointedjja committee  on credentials: Messrs. Ross, 'Greenwood, Bentley, Fernie, "Holt, Netoon  Goodeve, Rossland and Goodenough,  Kaslo. This committee later reported  the following as entitled. to*.:seats as  delegates: Columbia, Jno. Sperice,  W. H. P. Clement, J. B. McArthur;  Cranbrook, Jas. RyanyH. Haines, A.  -.eitch; Nelson, G. V. Holt, T. G-.  Proctor, Captain Duncan; Kaslo, G.0.'  Buchanan,'G. A7Carlson, A. W.

Oliver. Several of these gentlemen were represented by proxy. The  report was adopted .and Messrs. A. C:  Flumerfelt, Victoria board of. trade,  John Boyd, Vancouver board of trade,  J. F. Bledsoe, citizens association of  Vancouver, and Jeff Davis," president  Grand Forks boar.1 of tra.de, who were;  also present, were invited to take part  in the deliberations without the right  to vote. Press representatives and  others interested were also invited to  be present. .'.:'."���  The following- were elected the committee on resolutions: Messrs. Buchanan, ' Kaslo; Oliver, Rossland;  Procter, Nelson; Farrell, Moyie; Ker,  Phoenix; Deane, Kamloops; McArthur,  Columbia; Haines, Cranbrook; Topping, Trail and Henderson, Fernie.  A letter of apology and regret at his  absence from the president was read,  also a telegram wishing- the association a successful meeting. An apology for unavoidable absence was also  received from Mr. J. S. C. Fraser,  Rossland.*, The secretary then read  the report of the retiring president as  follows:  dence which we trust will be strengthened and assisted by wise and generous  legislation looking to a prolonged period of prosperity and good feeling. The  depression and uncertainty of the past two years have left iu their wake consequences which it will take some time to counteract. It is to be hoped that good  judgment and common sense will aid in obliberating any harsh feeling or bitter animosities which may have been engendered through recent labor differences in the mining district. Such conventions as this doubtless have'it in  their power to aid-in such restoration of mutual good feeling between employer  and employees.-and it might possibly assist in obviating- the future difficulties  from these directions were this convention to appoint a committee of arbitra-  trators whose duty it shonld be to oifer their good services in endeavoring to  avert disagreements in the future shouldsuch unfortunately arise. Were this  convention to empower the executive to nominate such sub-committee, representing as it would the combined weight and1 influence of the associated boards  of Kooteuay, it might prove of the greatest good to the entire community.  NECESSITY OF MORE SMELTERS.  Recent events have shown that the present capacity of the local smelters  is altogether inadequate to treat the silver lead ore product of the Kootenay.  The withdrawal of the American smelters from the market for British Columbia ores has demonstrated that the present smelters in Canada can only treat a  very small proportion of the present, output, probably less than one quarter.  The American smelters claim that they are practically driven out of the field  by excessive railroad rates. Now that a permanent fuel supply appears to be  assured the Kootenays it is hoped that this will result in the erection of further  smelters in Kootenay, and as this is an important local industry it would be  within the province, we think, of this convention, to urge upon the Dominion  and Provincial governments to bonus and provide assistance in the construction of such smelter plants.  MINING LAWS AND TAXATION.  The mining industry in Kootenay has met with such serious setbacks during the last ten years, first, from the heavy depreciation in the values of its products, due to the heavy fall in the price of silver, etc., subsequently owing to  altogether unexpected alterations in its legal hours of labor and regulations  respecting the introduction of miners and others from other parts of Canada,  etc., arid more particularly within the last few weeks on account of the, in  many instances, heavy increase in the cost of smelting, that we trust we shall  escape any further dramatic alterations in our mining- laws and taxation. We  feel convinced that when the Provincial Mining Commission promised meets  the evidence laid before it will conclusively demonstrate the increased cost of  operations since the introduction of recent mining legislation aud taxation,  and we trust that no attempt will be made to further increase the taxes or  place any restriction at present on the export of British Columbia ores. Our  smelters are confessedly unable to grapple with the product and an export  duty imposed at this juncture of affairs would not assist the present local  trouble, but would undoubtedly work a great hardship on shipping* mines,  probably in many instances necessitating their closing down and so paralyzing  the mining industry of Kootenay. It will be time enough when the Provincial  and Dominion government by wise and just assistance encourage the erection  of local plants sufficient to treat all local ores it will then be ample time/if it ia  t hen advisable, to put on an export duty.  RAILWAYS  IN  PROSPECT.  We have to congratulate the board upon the prospects of still further extensive railroad construction in our district. The great Canadian and transcontinental line is constructing bridge connections across the Columbia river  at Robson, which will greatly assist the interchange of traffic and business,  between the different centers in Kootenay. It appears to be definitely settled  that a railroad will be constructed this year in the Lardeau district, and it  seems not improbable that within eighteen months or two years there will be a  further railroad connection between the Boundary district and the coast by  way of the Similkameen.  v Various matters will be submitted to yoii for your consideration and deliberation,and.in concluding-1 can only express my-most sincere regret that I am unable to be present to take part with you, but I look forward with pleasure to  receiving the annual report of the Third "Convention of the Associated Boards  of Trade. .  I think it would be well to continue the practise of nominating a committee to personally lay before the members of the Government the various  matters dealt with by you at these annual Conventions.  Yours very truly,  J. RODERICK ROBERTSON.  * RETIRING PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS,  By direction of the chairman the secretary then read the following address  of the retiring president, Mr. J. Roderick Robertson of Nelson. -  ..'���-. 7 February'13, 1901.   *  To the members and delegates of the Associated  Boards of Trade of East-  ���in British Columbia, in convention iat Greenwood, B. C, 28th of February,  i901���Gentlemen:   ; The constitution ofour Associated Boards under Section 5  provides thata convention shall be held annually on Thursday of the week  ollowiug that in which the Legislature of Biiti.sh Columbia meets in annual  session.... It ha's been the custom of .he'.retiring President on the occasion of  the annual conventions to present an address to the members, and in following  .nis precedent I would take the opportunity first of again .thanking the member":- for having elected me to the high and responsible position which it has  oeeii my privilege to hold"since August "last. The manner in which the delegates conferred upon ine this honor was especially gi atifying under the circum-  tance-;, arid I can orily reiterate what I then stated that they had conferred  upon ine an altogether undeserved expression of  their kindness and good will.  ' MEETING OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.   .  Since the general convention in August last a meeting of the executive  committee was held at Nelson on the 12th December, a copy of the minutes of  which had been duly forwarded you by our Secretary, Mr. Jackson. At that  ��� neetiug it was resolved to approve of theappoiutment by the Hon. Minister of  the In teriorof a special commission _to inquire into the relations of. the public  policy of the -Dominion to the mining industry, including the mining, transportation, smelting, refining and marketing of the ores and their products. A  resolution was also pas-ed expressing the opinion that the Board of Trade  -should take all necessary steps towards laying before such commission, if appointed, facts and arguments relating thereto; it was also suggested that the  association should*-have the privilege of nominating gen tli men qualified to act  as suc'h commissioners, the names being submitted being those of Mr. G. O.  Buchanan of Kaslo, Mr. Duncan Ross of Greenwood, aud R. F. Tolmie of Nelson. Copies of these resolutions were duly forwarded to tke proper quarters.  The thauks of the convention are due to Messrs. Daly and Jackson, who were  appointed a special commitiee to draft and forward these resolutions. Correspondence from the Greenwood aud Vancouver boards of trade relative to  admitting the Coast.boards into this association et cetra, were referred to this  convention, and will doubtless receive your consideration. .. Other matters  which were brought before the executive vyeie also referred to the annual meeting, and will also be laid before you. ��� ���  The various matters dealt with at the general convention held at Nelson on  August 2nd and 3rd of last year were duly laid before the Provincial and Dominion governments and the various departmental officers concerned.  PROVIXCIAI, GOVERNMENT BULLETINS.  The members of the government have on several occasions both at Victoria  and Kootenay, expressed tlieir willingness to heartily co-operate in the publication of periodical and official government reports as to the output of the  mines. Inquiry amongst many of the larger mining companies elicited the  fact that.it: was, considered that a monthly bulletin would entail considerable  extra clerical work, and owing to the fact that in the spring and fall shipping  is often entirely suspended on account of impassible roads, such monthly  reports would not be so valuable for comparison as quarterly reports. It was  also felt that an itemized statement showing the output of. each mine might  not in all instances meet with the approval of the boards of directors, and that  an incomplete list would be worse than none at all. Our own view is that a  quarterly official statement giving the gross value of the output of precious  metals; lead and copper, etc., together with their tonnage, might be very beneficial to the Province, and that these figures could be collated from the sworn  quarterly tax returns furnished by all the shipping miners. In view, how  ever, of the possible objection to each mine'soutput being stated in de.ail, per  haps it would be well to give these figures in grand totals."  DELEGATION TO VICTORIA.  Shortly after the date of the last convention and during the sitting of the  legislature last fall, the committee appointed by you to wait upon the government to lay the resolutions of the convention personally before the government proceeded to Victoria and were accorded an appointment. The various  members of the committee received a very favorable reception at the hands of  the members of the government, who evidently took a keen interest iu the  various matters laid before them, and undertook to give them most thorough  and careful investigation. As is well known the last session of the local legislature was held, however, practically for the sole purpose of voting the necessary estimate and only passing measures-required for their purposes. Writing-  this address before the publication of the government's intentions as regards  the business of the approaching session we are necessarily unable to refer  thereto, but as the executives frequently conceal more than they disclose in  such speeches from the throne, it perhaps will be well for the convention to  make its own representations independently of such information;  IMPROVED  BUSINESS OUTLOOK.  The past few months have disclosed a notable" improvement in the general  condition of the mining industry in the Kootenays and the-renewed influx of  capital which is already taking: place,lsl an evidence that the investor'ha5_ renewed his confidence in the present government of British ColU-_ibia,*'a confi-  Several resolutions submitted by  the Phoenix board of trade were re-  ferred'to the committee on resolutions,'  as also was a lot of correspondence.  The report and financial statement  of the secretary-treasurer was submitted. The latter showed that there  was a debit balance at the beginning  of the year of $10.75; receipts for the  year were $223.75, expenditures, $213,  leaving a debit balance at close of  year of $10.   These were adopted.  It was resolved to telegraph the  C. P. R. diyisional superintendent  asking that a special train from  Greenwood be provided, so that delegates who were delayed on their way  in, might return to their homes without having to wait over until Monday.  This.convenienccAvas^AOurtepusly^pror  vided by the C. P. R.  The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted in the unanimous  election of Mr. C. Scott Galloway, of  Greenwood, as president, and the similar re-election of Mr. H. W. C Jackson, as secretary-treasurer. Both gentlemen returned thanks.  Mr. Geo. W. Rumberger, mayor of  Phoenix, and president of the board of  trade there, extended a cordial invitation to delegates to visit Phoenix,  for whose accommodation conveyances  would be provided. A vote of thanks  was accorded Mr. Rumberger for this  kindness, and the convention then adjourned for luncheon.  On resuming, the report of the committee on resolutions was received and  considered. Taking first a number of  resolutions adopted at last year's convention, the following is a synopsis of  a number of them, appearing in the  printed report of that convention, that  were re-affirmed. (1). That the provincial government designate the  mineral region occupying the Kettle  river basin as the "Boundary District"  and so define and name it on the official maps of the province. (2). That  no addition to a city be registered  without the approval of the local municipal authorities and of an engineer  appointed by the provincial government. (3). That the provincial government be requested to publish a map  showing location of occupying land in  outlying districts of the province. (4).  That a department for the preservation  of the forests of the province be organized and a rigid system of protection  of forests be enforced. (5) That 20  per cent'of royalty paid by mines within municipalities on their ore output  be apportioned for construction and  maintenance of roads in such municipalities to those mines. (6). That an  import duty on manufactured lead be  increased to a parity  with  the duties  on other manufactured goods and that  other lead products be charged 20 per  cent import duty. (7). That the. government borrow money for the construction of needed roads and bridges  in mining districts, (8). That a general railway act, with no restriction as  to building to the international boundary be passed. (9). That the C. P. R.  be requested to^ give suitable district  freight rates on provincial farm produce. (10). That the Companies Act  be amended to admit of inexpensive  transformation of joint stock companies from a non-assessable to. an assessable basis. (11). That the riven. b=  opened for the running of logs to  :"points of manufacture. (12). And that  more promptness in the transaction of  public business be required of all pro-  vincial government officials.  Concluded ou Fourth Page.  ouvenir  0ard$:  ���  OUVENIR of the B.  C.

Every board belonging  to association was fully represented.  The subjects considered was of great  .importance and the discussions were  .of much interest. The citizens of  ..Greenwood also maintained their refutation for genuine hospitality and  the visitors returned home fully im-  -pressed with the importance of the  ,city and magnificent future before it.  -VERNON--WEST RORK RAITWAY  The resolution passed by the Associated Boards of Trade in reference  -jto the Vernon-West Fork railway  should .receive the serious attention of  ,i)je government. The railway will  :not only be a benefit -to . the localities  -.through which it runs but it is of  .provincial importance since it furbishes a splendid opportunity to save  the province $40^. annually. As is  welt known to secure the fppstiuctio  of the Shuswap & Okanogan raUvya^���  .a branch running from S?camous oil  the main line of the C. P. R. to Okanogan lake, the government guaranteed the interest, on $25,000 per mile.  Owing to the local nature of the road  .the business secured was limited, and  ^consequently the province has been  paying* $40,000 guarantee of interest.  The continuation of this railway to  JSock creek will connect.the rich farming district of Okanagan with the  promising mining sections of West  Eork, and thus secure a large volume  .of business and insuring the probability of relieving the province of the  heavy burden now carried to maintain tne S. & O. road.  __-^The_projected-railway^does iiot..-Con-^  flict with any of the mooted thiough  railways. In the probable event oi*  the Coast-Kootenay railway being*con-  structed it cannot serve the districts  through       which       ihe Vcrnon-  Rock Creek road will traverse.  In the general public interest as well  as in the interests of the districts more  directly affected the charter should be  granted and inducements offered to secure the completion of the road.

R. goes into a fight  there is manufactured a wealth of romance that throws the exploits of  Rider Haggard's heroes into the shade.  Versatility and ingenuity- are two of  their strongest qualifications. Take  the agitation against the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company for instance. At  all times and in every quarter of the  Dominion reports were circulated that  the smelters of British Columbia were  on the point of shutting down because  they were unable to secure coke and  coal from the Crow's Nest Pass company. The C. P. R. attempted to  justify this report by using the Trail  smelter owned by the railway company. Big orders went in from the  smelter to the coal oompany in the attempt to cjowd the latter so that it  could be telegraphed all over the  country that the Trail smelter could  not get its orders tilled. The coal  company* was equal to the occasion and  filled the orders so promptly that the  smelter had no place to store the supply. Under the circumstances the  management of the Trail smelter telegraphed Paul Johnson of the Greenwood smelter: "Have thirty cars of  coke en route for which we- have no  place! Will you take it?" Mr. Johnson replied: " Don't need coke but  will take it off your hands." Here  ���was a glorieus opportunity for the C.  P. R. Next morning* under scare  headlines a C. P. R. organ stated,  "Shortage    of   Coke at    Greenwood.  Use Mellor's f!P  Mixed Paints.  J. W. MELLOR  V- & N. 'Phone 76.  Times Bldg.     -     -     Copper.

The follo'ving- are resolutions passed  during the afternoon session:  "Whereas several applications haye  been made to the dominion parliament  and the provincial legislature for acts  incorporating railway companies to  build lines of railway in the province  of Brilish Columbia, connecting with  other railways' at the international  boundary; and whereas interested  parties are strenuously endeavoring to  create the impression that such railways, if constructed, would be inimical  to the mining and smelting interests  of this province; and whereas, in furtherance of their designs, the opponents of competitive railways have proclaimed that those interested in mining and smelting in British Columbia  are opposed to the granting of the  said railway charters; therefore, be it  resolved, that the associated boards ot  eastern' British Columbia, representing every town ^n the metalliferou*-  portion of eastern British ^Columbia,  and every enterprise whose success  depends upon the development of its  mineral resources, emphatically declares for 'free trade in railways,' and  believes that every bona fide raflway  company desirous of building railways  in the province should be allowed to do  so; and be it further resolved that this  association is strongly of the opinion  that cheap freight rates  are  essential  _in>uilding up the mining and smelting industries, and, in the "absence of  government ownership of railways,  these can be secured only by competition and the control of rates through  a railway commission or other effective  instrument; and be it further resolved  that this association petitions the Dominion parliament and Provincial  legislature to grant the charters applied for by  the   several    companies  " who ask for nothing beyond the privilege of constructing railways in this  province; and be it further resolved,  that copies of this resolution be  printed and forwarded to the members  of the Dominion and Provincial governments, the members of the House  of Commons, Senate and Provincial  legislature."  An amendment to the foregoing resolution was submitted, and after a  long and earnest debate, was lost by  live votes for to thirty-one votes against  the amendment, which was as follows:  "That this association desires to place  itself on record as Leing in favor of  free and unrestricted railway construction, not only in southern British Columbia, but also throughout the whole  province; but that in the matter of  the granting of a charter, now being  applied for, forthe construction of a  railway from the international boundary to the Crow's Nest Pass coal district, this association would urge upon  the dominion .government and House  bf. Commons that, because of the  prejudicial effects that  the existence  1 of such a railroad might have upon  the milling and smelting industries  of British Columbia, before the said  charter be granted, sufficient delay  should take place to allow of a thorough and exhaustive investigation  into the effects such a railway, ��� if  built, might have upon the aforesaid  industries."  "That this association desires to  support any movement tending to the  early construction of a railway from  a point on the Crow's Nest Pass rail-  , near Sand creek, in east Koot  enay,   following the   valleys   of the  Kootenay   and Columbia   rivers to a  point at, or near, the town of Golden."  "Whereas,    an     extension    of  the  Shuswap   & vOkanogau    railway    to  Rock Creek or Midway would traverse  an  agricultural and  mineral country  of great promise, a country which will  not be served  by  any  other  contemplated line of railway, and whereas an  increased   traffic   would  accrue   from  such   extension    to   the   Shuswap   &  Okanogan railway, such as is the opinion of this association would  go far to  relieve the province of British  Columbia of the  annual  liability  of $40,000  or thereabouts incurred, the provincial  guarantee of  interest,   be it resolved  that   this association  recommends  to  the   favorable   consideration    of   the  government any   proposal   calculated  to secure such extension, and expresses  its   opinion    that   any   such   scheme  would be worthy  of liberal  aid from  the Province."  "That, in the opinion of this association, the immediate construction of  what is known as the Coast-Kootenay  railway is an urgent necessity, and  it requests the governments of Canada  and of British Columbia, and the parliament and legislature respectively,  to aid its construction, and if any aid  be granted, that all proper and specific  precautions be taken to control the  freig.it and passenger rates, having in  view the ultimate ownership of the  railways by the government."  "That, in. the opinion of this association, nothing will tend more towards  the development of the great mineral  resources of   Canada,   or   will   be of  greater benefit to the mining industry  which is growing in  importance from  year to year,   than  the erection  and  establishment by  the government of  Canada   of a   portfolio   or bureau of  mines  under   the   immediate   charge  and supervision of a minister of the  crown, and this association would respectfully   submit   that   this    matter  should receive the   immediate and earnest  attention  of   the   government."  (This resolution   was  prepared  by   a  special committee   and  forwarded * to.  Ottawa   last December, and was now  re-affirmed by this annual convention.)  "That this association approves the  proposal of the Honorable the Minister  for the Interior for'the appointment of  a special commission   to enquire  into  the relations of the public policy of the  dominion to the mining industry,  including   the   mining,   transportation,  smelting, refining and  marketing   of  the ores aud their products."  "That in the event, of the proposed  mining commission being appointed,  it is the opinion of this association that  the boards of trade throughout eastern  British Columbia should take all"*nec-  essary steps towards the presentation  before such commission of facts and  arguments relating to all matters  which may be enquired into by such  commission."  "That, in the opinion of this association, the provincial government  should make as good a representation  as possible of the mineral and other  resources of the province at the exhibition to be held in Toronto this  year, but as to the Buffalo exhibition  that no action be taken in view of the  statement, publicly made by the minister of mines that funds are not available, and this association' expresses  regret that the government has been  unable to provide funds for this purpose."-- ���--_- =-_,^i____._.-_,v_,__-_^_-,--___-,---_.  by called upon to prevent", by -all the  powers at their command, such discrimination; and that the  parliament  of Canada   and   legislature of British  _> \  Columbia are hereby requested to arm  the governor in council and the lieutenant-governor in council with all  necessary powers to give immediate  effect to such action whenever it be  found necessary."       *  "That the secretary be instructed to  bring to the attention of the Honorable  the Post-master General, the facilities  afforded -for the transmission of mails  between points oh Kootenay __,akeand  points in eastern Canada and the eastern United States, by the connection  now being made via Bonner's Ferry,  Idaho, with the Great Northern railway, and that on behalf of this association, the Honorable the Postmaster  General be requested to establish a  service over the new route at the earliest possible moment; and that, further, a resident assistant inspector of  post offices should be' appointed for  Kootenay; aud that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the postmaster general and the chief inspector at  Vancouver."  "Resolved that, in view of the fact  that commissions have been appointed  by our government and the United  States to settle the boundary line in the  Mount Baker district, it is advisable  that the operationsof such commission  be extended to the eastern limits of  this province."  "That, in the opinion of this association, the time is inopportune for the  amalgamation of the associated  boards of trade of eastern British Columbia with the coast boards, and that  when we have more direct and quicker  communication with the coast cities  the matter may be ripe for consideration."  The convention re-assembled on Saturday morning at ten o'clock. There  was again a good attendance, with  President Galloway in the chair.  One of the resolutions 'adopted the  previous day was rescinded, so as to  allow of its being differently worded.  In its altered form it was made to read  as 'follows: "Whereas, owing to the  well known salubrity of the climate,  largeinumbers of consumptive-persons  res*6rt'to British Columbia, and whereas the dry belt of the province is peculiarly suitable for the treatment of consumption; resolved, that this association requests the governments of Canada and British Columbia to erect, or  aid in the erection of suitable buildings  forthe treatment of consumptive patients, and to take such other measures as may seem desirable."  A resolution favoring the creation of  a new county, to be called South Kootenay, offered by the Rossland delegates, was withdrawn in favor of the  following: . "Whereas, the dominion  parliament has voted a salary ^for an  additional county court judge for British Columbia, and whereas it is absolutely essential that siich judge should  be given to the Boundary district; and  whereas it is necessary, in order to accomplish such purpose, to divide the  preseut counties of Yale and Kootenay  into three counties; and whereas the  logical mode of division is to group in  one county points on the same line of  railway; resolved, by this association,  that the present counties of Kootenay  and Yale-should be re-divided into  three counties, as follows:" All the  northern portions of said counties  along the main line of the C. P. R. to  ���-__-*-___��.  -S-SSBa  _ "Whereas, at the present time there  are no lead refining works iu the Dominion of Canada, and the initial cost  of establishing such a plant or plants  is very great, it is the opinion of this  association that the Dominion government should encourage the establishment of such works by a grant for a  term of years of a bonus of $5 per ton  on lead .of Canadian originj smelted  and refined in Canada."  "This association hereby declares  that, whenever it shall appear that  any of the companies producing coal  and coke in British Columbia, are  found discriminating against the  smelters, refineries and other industries in British Columbia, thc dominion  and provincial governments are here-  b e "gr otrped." together "in too n e co ti n ty; -  the southern portion of Kootenay to be  a second county; and the southern portion ofYale to be a third county."  Resolved, "that the 'Small' Debts  Act' should be amended by introducing therein a provision giving the  right to garnishee before judgment."  Resolved, "whereas codfidence is being created and strengthened in the  metalliferous mines and allied industries of this province, and capital is  now seeking investment in the same,  and whereas the frequent changes in  the laws relating to mining cause uneasiness and uncertainty in the minds  of investors and act most prejudicially  against the investment of capital in  the province; resolved that this associ  ation do urge upon the provinical government and legislature that no material  change should be'made in the laws relating to metalliferous mining a*nd al:  lied industries and assessments of the  same."  Resolved, "that this association is  clearly of the opinion that the provincial minister of mines should at once  establish and actively "conduct a literary bureau in his department for the  the spreading abroad, at stated and  frequent intervals, through the press,  of the world, information showing the  vastness of the mineral resources of  the province, their development, the  output of the mines and its value, the  erection of smelters and^ refineries and  all other provisions for the reduction  and treatment of ores, as a means of  calling attention throughout the world  to the same, so as to induce the larger  investment of capital therein."  Resolved, "that the provincial government be aske.l to insist upon immediate selection by the B. C. Southern  Railway Co. and the C. & W. Railway Co., of the lands to which under their subsidy acts they are entitled  in order that the reserves now covering  an enormous extent of land in east and  west Kootenay and Yale may be cancelled." <  It was decided to extend, through the  proper official chanuel a cordial invitation to the Duke and Duchess of  Cornwall and York to visit the mining  districts of Kootenay and Yale upon  their return from Australia via Canada  to England.  Resolved, "whereas this association  has been informed that an advance in  local freight rates to the extent of  nearly 50 per cent has-been recently  made between certain sections on the  Crow's Nest Pass railway; and whereas the government has the power to  regulate said freight rates on this line;  therefore be it resolved.that this association respectfully requests the Honor-,  able the Minister of Railways to give.  this matter his serious consideration  with, a^view to relieving the sections  thus affected from the present excessive freight rates."  Resolved, "whereas no sitting of the  supreme court has ever been held in  the Boundary district, which has two  supreme court registries, four incorporated cities, and a very large i-rtid  growing population; and whereas the  present arrangements for the administration of justice throughout the whole  interior of the provincejafe exceedingly defective and inadequate; and  whereas- all the five supreme court  judges reside at the coas*, this associa-  requests the dv mi i tod and provincial  governments to remedy these grievances by requiring one of the supreme  court judges to reside in the interior;  and whereas great expense is inflicted  on the province as well as the people  by the fact that there are no sittings  of the supreme court in the Boundary  district, this association requests the  provincial government to have such  sittings held without delay both for  criminal and civil cases."  Resolved, "whereas from time to  time applications continue to be -made  to the legislative assembly of British  Columbia by private parties and companies asking for special privileges in  regard to water rights; resolved, by  this association that the 'water'dauses  consolidation act? gives every facility  to bona fide applicants to obtain water  for every legitimate purpose,aud that no  special legislation - regarding water  should be passed; and resolved, that  strongly'  ������V.:  _i* ������  \tr  ARMSTRONG,  VROPR1ETOR  erta  Is The Best Hotel in The City.

Several amendments and additions  to the constitution and bydaws were  made. ' Among them was the raising  of the amount of the annual contribution payable by each board belonging  to the association from $15 to $25.  The following were appointed a committee to proceed to Victoria to present to the provincial government the  various resolutions of the association  requiring its attention: Messrs. Procter, Ross, Lalonde, Deane, Henderson,  Ker, Hannington, Buchanan, and  Manly, with power to add to -heir number and appoint proxies.  It was unanimously decided that the  next annual convention oJLdelegates  shall be held at Kaslo.  Resolved, "whereas Mr. W. T. Oliver, of Rossland, is about to leave British Columbia to fill a high position in  the bank of British' North America in  eastern Canada, this association expresses its sense of the great services  that he has rendered to the association,  and hopes that he will have a prosperous career in his new field of usefulness."  After a vote of thanks had been  passed by the visitors to the Greenwood boa_*d of trade and citizens generally for the hospitable reception accorded them, and votes of thanks to  the C" P.
