A. Cornwall, was  received, and officers for the ensuing  year,elected. 1 he.'following is a  copy of the rFresident's address     to  the Board:  PRESIDENT'S REPORT   ANNUAL  MEETING  BOARD  OF TRADE.  Ladysmith, B.C., alarch 15,  1006.  Gentlemen:���������It is  a good  and useful  custom,  and one   which  I should  recommend    this Board* to continue,  for     the retiring chiaxnian of      the  'Board of Trade of such a town    as  ours, to review m detail the     year  wliich has passed during his tenure of  office'. This may lie done under  enree  iieuds, viz:  1st.   The .work of thc Board.  2nd.   Thc material  progress ot the  city, euch.as civic improvements, etc  3rd.   Local  trade and industries.  And , after  dealing  with, these matters to  ma1* such recommendations  as     may suggest themselves to him  for improvement of-matters  relating  to the town.  Firstly,  then,  in regard to       the  Board's     work   duriug     the year I  would bring the     following matters .  to your     atU-ntioii as being among  the most important which have come  before us:  Public Wharf:���������  This  matter has  had  the     .nsiant  attention    of     thc.Board, and it is  much  to be regietted '"that  their .frequent -   letters    'to,  and  interviews  with, thc authorities  have not       resulted     as     satisfactorily, as might  haw: been expected.   The Heed for the  wharf has been fully  proven by     the  constant  use  to which it has     ,becn  put by   the merchants of this town,  and this would have been the case to  a fiu  ������1 cater extent had thc re������yrire-  ments     of thc Hoard been  complied  -with by the authorities that be.    It  has been pointed out  to the authorities that the arrangements      should  have     been      made to ha\ e a wharf  lighted, also that some one should ft  placed, in charge of   the f reigfot-shjed'  owing  to there being no one to    receive  cal c. ��������� -  to the wharf hy the lowering of the J months  An    'important.event for thc town  thc  first match in the Vancouver    ihis    would  be  the  only  inducement  Islam! intermediate  league will     be ��������� for them to mala; the trip.   This the  ds tomor-  directors oi the club could  not   see  I heir  way clear to give, and  notified  The   the  soldiery that half   the gate    re-  or     rather,  the collection,  Mr. Jas.  Adarn will referee.   This is   would be  turned  over   to them       if  ! ihe first time the local intermediates   they     would male the trip.      The  have ciiguged   in  a struggle   with   an   1 nowledge of a good  game  awaiting  outside team 'for a great length      of   them, and perhaps the same fate   as  time, but in the last few weeks they   that      which  overtook  tlie   Victoria  have been practicing hard and as    a   United on .Sunday, was not sufficient  result are in  good  shape ,to give the   inducement* for the Garrison players,  Victorias a hard, fast'game.

Patrick,   wc  give       a  short .sl-ctch  of his admirnhle life:  Somewhere about   the year 38fi A.  T).   a vouth     was  carried   from   Haul  into  Ireland   and  sold  into bondage.  This slave was none other than Patrick,   who later  became  the ceieinat-  ctl  Clitistian'-and saint.  ,   Even though, a sla\e,  Patrick l(\u n-  oil   to  love   Ireland  and  to  iiold her  people dear  to   his heart.   And      he  was no common slave,  this  hoy who  was born  in 13u.nne\en,  Tabernia, in  Scotland,   in the jear 373 A.D , and  i after  a brief  scnitude  he   made his  escape and  journeyed   first  to France  and     then     to Rome.   In this ci ly���������  ���������   then cai'ital of the world���������he became  a teacher  of   th-e gospel.   His  earnest  ness'and   veal ���������soon   placed  him  foremost among the  greatest   expouii'leis  of  the faith, and e\ cry where he was  Jolloww!  and loved.  Hut during all the yeais 'of his  wor"* . among thc Romans his heart  yearned for the children of the Em-  *ern.lt! Isle, and it was his ilea-est  wish to return to the land where he  had toiled in bondage and to teach  Christianity   to  its people.  It  was  not,   however,  until  he had  become quite advanced in years that  hb satisfied ids  heart's  longing    and  "once mote sot foot on  Irish soil    \\  once  began  his   work  as   teacher     oi  the gosnel.

His  charm of  person, his  noble life spent  in   a nobler  cause found converts, ev-  .    cry where he  went.   To hear him was  1n  believe  the  words he spoke.      So  gicaX   was   his   magnetism   and   ioic"  of argument that none disputed him,  and \soon all Ireland was Christian in  faith.  .For  many centuries the      island   was  1 nown as   "The    sle      .*>i  Saints,"  being,  as it was,   the     especial   home   of   Christianity.

The entire Jew  i.sh question has been raised in u-  cute form and may be settled foi  them. The Emperor is said lo  be amazed at the revelations made  hy the Jewish deputations which  thc premier  received in audience    or.  March 7 and to1 have informed  Count Witte that it was urgentlj;  necessary to settle the question immediately. Count , Witte is un  derstood to have talked quite  bluntly to the Emparor regarding  the innumerable difficulties which  his opponents were raising' to this  and other questions, and he is said  to have goiw to the extent of requesting permission to resign the  premiership.. The emperor, it is ad  ded would not listen to it, insisting that Count Witte must remain in office and at the same time  instructing him to prepare a project providing for the equality of  thc Jews for presentation to the  National   Assembly.
