Mr. Thomas Chairman and gentlemen, the reports that have been placed before you are, I consider, of an excellent nature, and I much pleasure in seconding' the motion. I am sure that we art all pleased and satisfied'at the report laid before us. Considering the condition of trade ail over Canada, I think t-hat this report is one with which all the shareholders should be .satisfied. benr.V "I may say that, I am very pleased, and I am sure we all are, to see our manager, Mr. Hague, present with us today. (Applause.) We hope that we shall have the pleasure of seeing him at many such meetings as this in the. years to come. I have great pleasure in seconding the this report." The there any questions to be asked by the Shareholders? I .will ask your approval of the report." There being no report was then put to the vote, and adopted. The General Manager (Mr. E. F. statement before you gives the result of our host efforts in the management r.f your property for the past six months. The figures may, per- haps, spoak for themselves, I hope you think the statement a not unfavom bio one. In this connection I, should like to bear to the loyalty and excellent work and spirit of the staff at large, an the members of which arc actuated by an ardent de- sire to promote the Bank's best interests. "The genera! banking ami ci'M.Mt.'i-i'fcijil sit.TKii.ion has been re- cently epitomized by the chief officer of the premier Bank of Can- ada, supplemented by the weighty deliverance of its presidentj and between these two authorities all of present practical interest lias been said. If it were for me to make any remarks to you on the present occasion, I should like to say that there has, perhaps, never been in recent years in Canada a. time when a. policy of moderation in public and private affairs was so plainly called for WHY DOES ONE PLACE THIT RI6HT PLACE?

WHOLESALE AND RETAIL Prompt Delivery Telephone r MAYOR'S DINNER. City Council and Prm Men Around Mayor's Table. Ou Sa-Lurritiy evening" Mayor <5aT- braith gave a dinner to, those who had sat around the council board with him during the past year. Those present were Aids. Ohver, Bowman, Vrooman, Watson, Cunningham and Macbeth, Secretary-Treasurer Robin- son, J. L. Manwaring of the News and 0. D. Austin of the Herald. The mayor; makes an ideal host and the function was thoroughly enjoyable. The Doctor's new home was much ad- mired and it was judged most fitting that it should be opened socially by a dinner to the council. A tickling cough, from, any is quickly stopped by Dr. Shoop's Cough.Cure. And it is so thoroiqgti- ly harmless and safe, that Dr. Snoop. tells 'mothers everywhere to give- it. without ba-bes. ;-The wholesome green. and. tender stems of a lung-healing mountainous shrub, furnish the cara- tive properties .to Dr. Shoop's Cure, It; calms the cough, and, heals the sore and sensitive bronchial branes. 2fo opium, no nothing harsh used, to injure or sup- press. Simply a resinous plant ex- tract, that helps to heal aching The Spaniards call this shrub whick the Doctor uses, "The Sacred Always demand Dr. Shoop's Cough. Cure. as the present, and in saying this I believe I am "only expressing a thought uppermost in the minds of most thinking responsible .-.matin Canada. The change in the commercial and economic situation in the neighboring republic for the worse, within the past few months, has been kaleidoscopic. It is now happily showing signs of improvement. In Canada we are altogether bet- ter situated, and if is our good fortune to be working under- a better banking currency system. But this is a slowing down time with us, a time to take stock of our positions, and to retrench and be mutually helpful withal, by being moderate in our commit- ments and undertakings, and thereby introducing a factor into affairs making for the retaining of all our advantage which can only... be interfered with by untim'ely optimism. The next order of business is the election of Directors, and I would suggest that Messrs. Black and Patterson act as scrutineers." Moved by Mr. M. S. FoJey, seconded by Mr. A. Piddington, that Messrs. John Patterson and George Hague be requested to act as Scrutineers, and that only ono ballot be.taken for the election of! the Directors. Mr. George am inclined to tliink that this course is hardly formal enough for such an election of I think should read: 'That the scrutineers cast one ballot for the following persons as and unless this course is fol- lowed someone may call this election in question.' are all agreed upon the and I suggest that tins course be fol- loTreu." Moved by Mr. J. Patterson, seconded' by Mr. George Hague, that Scrutineers cnst one ballot for the following persons as- Directors of the Merchants' Bank of Canada for the ensuing year: SIR H. MONTAGU ALLAN. MR. JONATHAN HODGSON. MR. THOMAS LONG. MR. C. S. IIOSMER. MR. SMITH. MR. HUGH A. ALLAN. MR. C 'M MR. ALEX.- BARNET. MR. F. ORR LEWIS! The Scrutineers cast one ballot, in with this motion, and the Chairman declared the gen tic-men mentioned'thordneloc- as Directors of the Bank. There be-in? no further business the meeting then adjourned. At a. subsequent meeting of the directors the following officers1 were, re-elected: President, Sir Hugh Montagu Allan; Vice-Presi- dent, Mr. Jonathan Hodgson.
