MISS DOCK WAS THAMKED The Board of Trade prepared for an .active year at its first meeting for 1901, held last night, and officers were placed in nomination for the election to be held in February. There was considerable discussion, but the matters taken up were chiefly routine, although the need of parks was again referred to. Iieports were presented on the death of two prominent members. On the death of the late M Alarney, Esq., a committee W. Me - consist - ing of Colonel II. C. Demining, Snodgrass, Esq., and John T. lloberf Drady, Esq., reported the following: "When the Harrisburg Hoard oP Trade was organized, in 1SSG, the first name on the first paper drawn up for signatures of business men announcing their intention to become members was that of Mathias Wilson McAlar - ne - . In fact, it was due to his keen foresight, unusual business judgment, and remarkable tact, that the initiatory steps were taken which were so successfully consummated. From the date of the first meeting in the court house until his departure froim this life Mr. McAlarney was deeply interested in the growth and prosperity of this board. He served on committees, held subordinate oflices, and then became one of the. most honored presidents. "During all these years the Harrisburg Hoard of Trade had in him one of its staunchest supporters and moist sturdy advocates. It was an honor to the board to have him thus interested; because he. was regarded, not omly in Harrisburg, but wherever he was known, as a true gentleman, ai man honored and loved by his family, an accomplished lawyer, an able and talented journalist, and a model Christian. "The great loss the board experiences by his departure from us will long be felt, and your committee, in Kiibmittinijr this report', know very well that in puying this tribute they fall far short of doing, full justice to his .erpiine nl'. - worth 4 his "tin)iabie personal qualities, and his value as n fellow - citi - en. "We reeominend that a life - sized portrait of our late president be placed in our reception room, there to call up fond memories of the time he was with us, and to be a stimulus to all to emulate the noble example he has set for young, pure - minded, pure - heiarted business and professional mea" On the death of the late Captain Henry Fraley, the committee to draw up resolutions comsisted of Major .Joseph C. Smith, Mr. J. S. Sible and Mr. D. H. Heisey, reported the fol - lowi ng: "We, the special committee .appointed to prepare, a minute for the records of the board, noting the death f Captain Henry Fraley, respectfully rcootro - mend the following tribute of our respect be placed upon the minutes of the board, and a certified copy be sent to the family of deceased: "Some meet the inevitable of existence by closing life ere work and duty fairly begin; others are more favored and live to enjoy the opportunity of being of service to Family, Ch urch and Slate. To the latter class our deceased member, Captain Henry Fraley belongs. Of the sixty years of his pilgrimage, he employed more than forty in active and useful occupation; living these active years through the most momentous periods of the nineteenth century. He met the duties which demanded action of him, in a courageous and manly manner. Essentially mild in temper - men t, and gentle in all ways, he yet gave four years of his youth to the service of his imperiled nation, and nerved in the army of the Union with great distinction. That work finished, he became a merchant, and in his relations to business and the progress of the. eity of his home, he, was honest, enterprising and esteemed. In the church he was ever a consistent and influential member, giving earnest, support to nil the duties of his membership. In his relation to his friends and society, he was true and respectful. We may well say of him. Soldier and citizen; true ami honorable. 'We hope for yon that, honored rest assured to those who die in Ihe Lord.' " The tributes were adopted by a risi ng vot e.
