Tho President, Hon. Goorgo A. Cox, having taken tho chair, JVIr. F. O. Jem-mctt was appointed to act as Secretary, a"nd MeSsra. Aeniilius Jarvis and \V. M. Alexander wore appointed scrutineers.

DANIEL, Manager $1,71IU,0'J7 1� The entire assets of the bank have as usual been carefully revalued, and ample provision has been made for all bad and doubtful debts. Last year we were able to show carniiiga which were the largest in the history of the bank. This year we have again made satisfactory progress, our not earnings amounting to $1,741,125.40, or about $370.0110 moi-e than last year. In view of these handsome profits, your Directors decided that the time had como to incre.nse the annual distribution to the shareholders, and, in addition to the usual dividend at the rate of seven per cent, per annum, tliey liave declared a bonus of one per cent., making a total distribution ot" eiglitper cent, for the past year. After providing for this increased distribution niul for the annual contribution to the Pension Fund, wo have been able to write .$,'?41,434.73 olf Bank Premises, and to add $500,000 to the Rest, which now stands at $5,000,000, or 50 per cent, of the Paid-up Capital. In April last a terrible calamity overtook the city of San Francisco, where we have a large and important business. Having regard to our long connection with San Francisco throu^'h the Bank of British Columbia, your Directors thought it only fitting that we should express in a tangible manner our sympathy with the sufTerers, and they accordingly voted $25,000 as a contribution to the Relief Fund. In accordance with an agreement made in the early part of the year, this Bank took over, as on the 1st of June last, the business of the Merchants Bank of Prince Edward Island, which gave us new branches at Chiirlotlletown, Sum-mcrside, Alberton, Montague and Souris, all in Prince Edward Island. The branch which that Bank had at Sydney was amalgamated with our own branch there. The six months' experience which we have had with our new business gives us every reason to be satisncd with tho purchase. In addition to the offices thus acquired the bank has opened during the year new branches at the following points: in .'Vlbcrta, at Bawlf, Crossfleld, Oleich-en. Leavings, Stavely, Stony Plain,'Strathcona and Wctaskiwin; in Saskatchewan, at Canora, Humboldt, K:im3ack, L.ingham, Lashburn, R;idi3on, Vonu\ Wa^^ dena, Watson and Weyburn; in Manitoba, at Norwood, and at Alexap"**?^-enue, at Blake street, and at Fort Rouge, Winnipeg; in Ontario,"Ot Fort William, Kingston, Latchford, Lindsay, Ottawa (Bank street), I'arry Sound and Wingham, and at Parkdjle, and at 107 Yongc street, in the city of Toronto; in Quebec, at West End. Montreal, and in tho city of Qjebcc; in the United States, at the corner of ^'a^ Xoss nnd Ildd.v streets. Sun Franoisco. The branches at Sackville, X. B., and Canning and Lunenburg, X. S.. have been closed. Since the close of the bank's year branches have been opened at De Lorimier, Que., and Innisfree, Alta. It is with deep regret that your directors Z . tlie death of their late colleague, Mr. W. B. Hatniltnn - ..'},c, for nearly twenty-two years had been a director of the banV.. 'Cntil his health^n to f.ail Mr. Hamilton was rarely absent from the meetings of tho board, where his long experience in busine-js made him at all times a wise nnd prudent counsellors. To fill the vacancy the directors elected the Hon. W. C. Edwards, of Rocl hind. An amendment to the by-laws will be submitted for your approval, increasing the number of directors from twelve to fourteen. In accord.tnee with our long-e=tabIlslicd practioe. the brmches and agencies in Canada, the United Stntes and Great Britain, atid the various departments of the head office of the bank have been inspected rfurin^the year. The directors have again pleasure in recoriling tl>eir appreciation of the efficiency and zeal with which the ofticcrs of.the bnnk have performed their respective duties. , G&ORGE A. COX, President.
