Amalgamation With the
Halifax Banking Company-Will
now have p^id-u iCapital of $12,000,000
Oreat interest has been shown
in the announcement from Halifax that a provisional agreement has been made under
which The Halifax Banking
Company is to be amalgamated
wit|i The Canadian Bank of
Commerce. The latter bank
has at present a paid-up capital
of$»,0l)0,000withare*»t of $2,-
j")!)t),0jK), but a week or two ago
a special meeting of the share*:
holders was called for llth
April next to pass a by-law increasing the capital stock to
$10,000,000. Its head office is in
Toronto, and it has now 84
branches throughout Canada
and, the United States, stretching from Sydney, Cape Breton,
in the extreme East, to Victoria in the West, and from Dawson in the North to San Francisco in the South. It is represented at all the principal business centres in Canada west of
Montreal, and has its own offices in New York, Portland (Oregon), Seattle, and Loudon, England.
™_£*«iJlnfcUAixm wmetmit-xiaktAAhAtiltOnl,
of a branch at Sydney, The Canadian Bank of Commerce had
no office in the Maritime "Provinces. Its stock, however, has
always been a favorite investment with Nova Scotians, no
less than $800,000 of its capital
being held in that province.
The purchase of The Halifax
Banking Company will give it
offices at fifteen additional
points in Nova Scotia, including
Halifax, Truro and Windsor,
in fact, all the more important
places. Two branches will also
be obtained in New Brunswick,
at Ht. John and Sackville.
The present directors of The
Halifax Banking Company will
continue t» give their services
in the capacity ofa local advisory Board at Halifax, the Cashier will become local Manager]
there, and the entire staff will \
be taken into the service of The
Canadian Bank of Commerce.
There is consequently no doubt
but that the good-will of the
institution is being taken over
along with ite tangible assets.
Originally established in 1825
as a private partnership, under
the same name as at present,
The Halifax Banking Company
became incorporated in 1872.
It has retained the friendship
and support of many of the
old Halifax firms whose pre-
lecessors did business with it in
its earlier years, and in spite of
the disadvantages under which
in these days a comparatively
small local bank must always
labour, it has built up a sound
and remunerative business. It
has a paid-up capital of $600,000
with a rest of $525,000. Ite deposits are about $4,000,000, ite
total assets about $0,000,000, and
with the added strength and
prestige which its incorporation
into The Canadian Bank Commerce will necessarily give, a
lai'ge increase in tho present
business may confidently be
The terms under which the
amalgamation will take place
are said to bo as follows:
After tho necessary approval
of the shareholders of The Halifax Banking Company has been
obtained and all the requisite
legal formalities have been
completed, The Canadian Bank
of Commerce will assume the
liabilities of The Halifax Banking Company, and will give in
exchange for the surplus of its
assets over its liabilities stock
of The Canadian Bank of Commerce of the par value of $700,
Doubtless some of tbe new
stock which the Canadian Bank
of Commerce is taking authority
to issue will be used to carry
out the terms of the agreement.
Both bunks are to be congratulated upon the arrangement which has been made,
which mjstmateriallystrengtli*
en the position of Tho Canadian Bank of Commerce and
add tothe exceptional facilities
which it already possesses for
conducting a successful banking business. When the amalgamation has taken place, it
will have a paid-up capital and
rest combined of nearly $12,000,
000, and. total assets of some
$80,000,000, with 101 branches
distributed throughout the
length and breadth of Canada.
Will Build a Castle.
The .following taken from the
"Pasadena Times" shows how
a former resident of the Boundary country is doing in California;
Plans are being drawn for a
home that promises to be one
of the most striking in this section! '' "*N. tt.    Pketch-r,- - Wnowu.
over Southern California as the
Bee King, because of his success at honey raising, has an
architect working on the
plans for an octagonal castle to
be built on Harrison Heights
in North Pasadena. Fletcher
will not say just what his home
will be like, preferring to have
lib works show for,themselves,
but he hints that it will be
something unique.
Tlie Bee King purchased
oleven acres belonging to the
htte W. W. Harrison and situate on East Washington street
and Garfield avenue several
weeks ago for a sum upward
of $50,000. This property has a
commanding elevation just
south and east of Monk Hill.
and is improved with granite
drives, handsome stone and cement gate pillars and the like.
The beauty of the property and
ite cost suggests that the home
that is to crown it will be of
surpassing grandeur. The
house will probably cost at
least $25,000 by the time it is
finished. Fletcher is designing
it himself with a purpose of
making it unlike anything in
these woods, being assisted by
an architect in technical details
"I prefer to let tho people see
what I am doing first," said
Fletcher yesterday, at Iiis home
on N. Fair Oaks avenue, in
North Pasadena. "I'm not
much for notoriety and boasting. All I can tell you now is
that the house will be unlike
anything hereabouts, lt will
not be more than three storeys
in height, and will Ih) fronted by
an extensive lawn. I consider
the location the handsomest in
town, and I have been trying to
purchase it for several years,
but it was held at $05,000, which
was too high. 1 got it finally
for a little less than that."
From remarks the bee man
has dropped from time to time
his aquaintances have gathered
that he will erect something of
a feudal castle with eight sides,
beautiful courts and grounds,
and, in short, a Koine that will
attract attention far and wide.
Greenwood Notes!"01'
W, G. McMynn, inunediata
i past master of Greenwood lodge,
No. 28, A. F. & A. M„ has been
presented by the members of
the lodge with a past paster's
jewel, clasp, On the.,reverse
side of the jewel, which has the
customary emblems beautifully
finished in Sold, is the following
inscription: Presented by the
brethren of Greenwood lodge
in token of their appreciation
of your zealous work for the
order (luring 1902. The gold
bars of the clasp are engraved
with,the name of the recipient
and the letters G. R, B. C. The
presentation was made in the
lqdgeroom, W. M. James 8.

a numerous attendance of members to do honor to brother McMynn.

Wilson, representing Price brothers, of Quebec, who are under
stood to hold the remaining interest in the company, waited
upon the council at ite last
meeting and asked for au extension of the company's* franchise. Nothing definite as to
the company's plans for the
future has been made public,
but it is believed that they are
in large measure contingent up
on the development of an extensive scheme iu connection
with the proposed generation
of power at Kettle falls, on the
Columbia river, in the state of
Washington. It is probable a

Bodie Camp Claims Bonded
An option on the Mountain
View and Keap Cool claims in
Bodie Camp, on Torodo creek,
has boen given to D. W. McKinley, who represents other
San Francisco parties. The
price of the two undeveloped
claims is $5,000. These properties are on the same hill with
the Bodie mine. The lead
which can be traced the length
of both claims, is about nine
feet wide and shows values
ranging from $8 to $20 in gold.
A shaft has been sunk 50 foot
on the Keep Cool. The men
taking the option will sink 50
feet farther, and if the showing
continues as good as the present depth they agree to take
over the claims and pay $5,000
in erase. The claims adjoin the
Golden Howard, upon which
considerable development work
has been done. They, arc situate about 16 miles south of

SATURDAY, MARCH, 14, 1008.
Ono of the .latast .of tho great
state of Missouri to distinguish
hiinsalf   is   Mr.   De    Arnior.i1,
whose resolution   in   congress
requested   the    president    "to
lerfrnar.d advise the  congress
up8n what tonus, if a .iy, lion*
orable to both nations and sat-
ijsfactoiy to the inhabitants' ot
tliotbrriirtiry   primarily affect
ed| Greit   Britain would con
sent   to  cede   to  tho   United
Ktatcs n'l or   any part of    the
territory lying north of and adjoining'Te    United    States.
This resolution wliieh failed to
receive Consideration has   been
muesli c;)r.r.iie.ifced upon  by the
American and Canadian   press.
For our part wc consider it one
of thc ittttr thiiigw 6f its kind.
It, is cerLiv.nly cbuolted in lan;;-
ua;4'e most respectful  and coi>
siderateof the feelings of   the
people '■pr!;n.ii':!y iif.'ected."   It*|
is a  distinct advance  on. tha
sontmie'ibs of a  former member of congress, who while  ad-
voba&nj* the acquisition of Canada used tho   following words
"I'leaseably if we   can forcibly
if   we    must."   The    Toronto ••'

very.   Tt must he borne in mud Mr. De A.mond hails from
a state far rei::ovcd   from   the
Canaditth border, nnd,    tlun-
fm-o. h's idea'*i of Canadian put -
lie   ::'i]J.:ii.eiU    are   necessarily

and the other crops, is spent, in
hinting c on and jiossunij and
not  in   studying  the   vario; s
phases i3f Ca:i idian public sentiment.  Ai d it is quite uaural il
s1\wtiUV  lte so.   What prompt
id Mr, Do Armond's  resolution
wo do not. know, but he  prob-
a'bly thougiit it.a g<:od way tc
sott'le'1 the   Ala; ka   boundary
(inestion nnd other   matters ofj
difficulty between two kindred
nations, antl it certainly   would
bo a -most  excellent  method.
Possibly he reads carefully  the
.English- papers, or  despatches.
if so, lie has doubtless observed
that for years- past, ever since
the Kpanish-Amercan   war, at
least,  Jihn Bull   has     been
hugging      his     dear    friend
Uncle Sam, to the great danger
of dislocation of the hitter's ver-
tebrae;   Mr.   De Aimond   observing tliis peril, perhaps, conceived the idea that if John Bull
could,arrange to give Canada to
Undo Ham, it would be practical proof of his  undying affection but would als.o materially'en   Uncle Sam's backbone,
This, however, is a mere hypothesis,1 we cannot accurate]
read  Mr.  De Armond's  mind.
Whatever were his reasons, he
lias only revived an idea once
hold by several prominent Canadians, and still held by some,
that Canada  is destined to become  a  part  of   the   United
States. The .Spokesman-Review
of Spokane, Wash., referring to
the Do Armond resolution said:
"Ciuiadians are still stout and
loyal 'Britishers'with a sort of
contempt for tho United States
that has been   inherited from
tiie fathers of   1.00  years ago,'
We do not know where   tho
Spokesman-lleview obtains, its
ideas about Canadian   affairs,
whether they tiro inherited or
not, but one thing is  sure they
aro ridiculous.   Canadians as a
rule  aro not   "Britishors"~an
oll'oiisive term used at the  time
of tho, revolutionary war—but
loyal British subjects, and tlmt

t;:o fort ilita vernacular of the district, "There's more hell in the li-

I We Were amused by the fice-and-
easy ways of those whom Engli. h-
nien are wont to re.-eivc with ic-
K, oct, if not scr,. ility. "Juck Is us
good ns his master," if not   belter.
I "Hoots," for example, who is a Ind
| from Whitechapol, made it a great
favor to give more "shine" for lhe
cent*, nnd off duty he was    dressed
I with ihe best, swaggering into tho
writing-room, (hulling tho    visitors,
I nnd whistling shrilly now un-1 again,
to assert his independence, 'lho burlier conducted operation's in the same
room, and for ptautico, or pleasure,
began shaving himself, Wul-'lng round
the room, und exhibiting his skill
('iiappily on his own throat,! without
even a glun e into tho glass, occasionally inal,iug a joke, or singing a
smith of a music-hull song. J'eun-
time u young clerk, f:-oin a storo
dose by, settled himself in Ihe shaving chuii- to wtiit tho good piousuro
of the barbel', who, looking ht him
qui -zictilly, ex-l.iimi'jl, "Well, my
buck, you needn't look sapious,
though you may be as good as you
like." Tlie next customer was facetiously tiskod, "Do you want a
s rape? Then J giic-S you must wait
ti I I've done my own hair." With
all this noisy rhnlf theo was great
good nature, Whon I expressed my
stirpiiso ut the impudence of Boots
to one of the townsmen, he said,
"Oh, we don't mind it: you see, he's
an orphan irom the Old Country."
The truth is those men earn good
money, and their places could not lie
cosily supplied if they went off in a
liulf. One of the men (old me that

The school where thorough work is clone; where the reason
is always given; where confiJerce is developed ; where Book-'ing is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard ; where the training in Civil Service, Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them howto be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do. When
you know what a school c-m do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck? Is it wiser to guess?
