The fire dently started inside tlio buiiding.and ,ained considerable headway before it As soon as tlio alan I have pleasure, in my' capacity acting lion, secretary of this branch .the Overseas Club to present Ihe se i ond annual report oi the secretary. Last year, when Secretary T. "U Clarke presented tbe first annual r j port of this branch be was able to col gratiilate the club upcn an extreme! successful year's work from a men bersliip point of view. For the com ing year, I hope to be able to repor from lime to time, a steady and sub stautinl increase in our membership and I would suggest that every men- IICT of the club make an effort to at lain this ond, and place our tolal uum bcr far in excess of any lhat our pre vioiis records can show. During last 'winter several concerts smokers and social evenings were hell and proved very enjoyable in overs way. As .you are aware no for admission were made, and if these concerts, etc., arc lo be continued and made self-supporting the Executive I committee must be afforded .better II- nancial support from those members attending. It is with mucb pleasure that 1 draw attention to Dr. IfacRae's visit uithiisiaslic discourse, and also so keenly: and worked fo to mako these'concerts ami socials the success they 'were, boili In organiz and the valuable assistance given contributing freely and heartily the' various programm-s. 1 am proud to ablc to tell that al the close oi the second s win rff its'existence our football el can show'a fine record, bavins lost o y one match, lo our friends thc "C .and having won both tii0 Ci Football league and the Scott Ci May' nexl season be the same, on more so. During the year our president, .llr. U. A. Cunningham, ha nn interview, with Col. Sam Hughe regarding the possibility Of an lufa try regiment being formed locally. Col.'Hughes assured him thru at n listaht date the sum of woul >e voted for. the construction of a irmoirry if the city would supply suitable'site. The .Mayor and Coun il have, assured us that this site wi ie provided by the city when the tini rrives. Th'e suggestion of arranging for per lanciit headquarters for this branch as also been made, but bas, up to ie present, proved to be an impos blllty owing .lo our financial condi on. However, it is hoped that wilt his end in view, all members, boll DROWNED j was noticed, was given the visit of Mr. Evelyn Wrench, the organizer of the club of which we arc a branch, with bis sister, Miss Wrench. Mr. Wrench gave a long, in- teresting and very instructive speech on the club, its aims and its accom- plishments, that was fully appreciated liy each and every 'member who at- tended the luncheon held at the Al- exandra Hotel, where he was euter- lained by the Hiss .Wrench.was entertained to luncheon by the ladies of the club at the Brown.

In the afternoon a tour of inspection of Letbbrtdje and its sur dies and gentlemen, will unite in aldug all future concerts, r socials as great a success flnancial- as from any oilier standpoint.
