Other important busl- ( ness to come before the meeting was ( the reception of the report of the committee on by-laws, which report was adopted after due consideration, and the by-laws ordered printed for distribution to the members. A friendly feeling Is being cultivat ed among the merchants of Southeast ern Alaska by the work of the asBO- i elation and uniform methods are be- , ing adopted for the extension of cred it, which, it Is hoped, will result In good, not only to the merchants, but to their patrons as well.
