a brief address, la the nature of a.
general report, assuring those present .
that the Chamber of Commerce had -continued
Its activities, chiefly
through its board of trustees; though ,
no stated general meetings had been
held through the aummer season, and
only one or two special meetings
hastily called together, on Important
occasions. He gave some account of
the activities of the board of trus
tees, chiefly through correspondence, -
and stated some of the matters now
pendlcg. He desired that the meet
ing should be aa free as possible front
formality, and should be devoted to
free exchange of views and sugges
tions, in preparation for future work.
The exchange became quite-general '
and seemed to run along lines that '
promised good results. Toward th-
latter part, after the reading of on
or two of the most Important sec
tions of the by-laws, a membersmp '
paper was laid out and nearly every
one present who was hot already a
