Bilsland; http://www.library.ubc.ca/archives/pdfs/bchf/bchq_1952_2.pdf; at page 134: “As a result of these findings, Graham resigned in June, 1902, and was succeeded as Gold Commissioner by J. A. Fraser. Newspaper-men in Atlin, Victoria, and Vancouver agreed that Graham had most faithfully and competently discharged his duties in a trying position, and that he had been the victimof a vicious, mud-slinging campaign. The Atlin Claim paid a last tribute to the retiring officer, saying that he had been a good man for the office which he had held, and that he had done a good job. At the time of Graham’s resignation, the Claim also praised the government of Premier E. G. Prior for its choice of J. A. Fraser as the new Government Agent. 45 Fraser remained as Gold Commissioner for twenty years, finally being succeeded by C. L. Monroe in 1922. During Fraser’s régime, he conducted his duties fairly and honestly, thus eliminating any further complaints against the officials of the Government.”
