BANK CLOSES DOWN
Knickerbocker Trust Co. Suffers
from Wall Street War
New York, Oct. 25 —Nothing short
of a panic existed in New York on
Tuesday, and from the tone ol the
mesiage received by a number of financial institutions, the feeling ie
spreading to other cities at a rapid
rate.
A number ol the banks were he-
sieged by depositors clamoring to take
out their money, and extra clerks
have had to be empleyed to attend to
their wants.
Great consternation reigned shortly
after 11 o'clock when the Knickerbocker Trust Company stopped payment of inouev to depositors, announcing nt the same time that it was unable to obtain currency fast enough to
satisfy the demand.
When the doors were closed there
were neirly 300 people in Hue, nnd an
army of clerks had been busy paying
depositors at the rate of sixty an hour.
A number ol the customers came to
the bank with depositB but lhe run on
the institution Beared them and they
deemed it wise to wait. State bank
examiners today visited and started an
examination'of the accounts of the
Knickerbocker Trust Company.
the disaster antl derangement which
that means are exceedingly remote.
Hnd the developments which hnve recently taken place occurred on the
high level of a year ago, we might,
indeed, have had to lace a cataclysm.
As it is, the stock market has entered
one of the greatest declines in history,
a decline equivalent to that of a great
panic—but in an orderly and will distributed fashion. Losses have been
enormous, but they have been admirably met, and considering their extent
the disasters following have heen remarkably lew.
The moral cleaning out which Wall
street is now receiving will re-establish values and redound to the honor
and profit ol honorable institutions.
The truth that has beeu so long suppressed in tlie hope thnt the banks
would tnke warning and eradicate the
weak spots, is now heing published
in ollicial notices from the banks. It
is no longer even au open secret that
the bunking situation needed drastic
handling.
Now thnt the real seat ni the trouble has been reached, there is hope.
The resources of the country in general are not- impaired materially, and,
ns the decline in business has been
sentimental, it is possible for a sharp
reaction to take place. The people of
the country have never hnd so much,
money free before in history, and the
minute they are convinced that the
purification has been complete they
will buy stock.
NO BIG PANIC
Wall Street Purification Will
Re-establish Values.
New Yokk, Oct. 25.—The veek has
been a period ol feverishness and un-
settlement in the stock market. At
times the street waB full of disturbing
rumors, and the embarrassment of one
important operator in copper added to
the prevnilling demoralization. Tbis
continued liquidation wis, ol course,
s part ol tho general reaction which
began with contraction iu the money
market, was accelerated by various
exposures and legislative attacks, and
is now causing a wholesale and somewhat radical financial house cleaning,
sayi Henry Clews in his weekly report, How lar the decline will go it is
beyond human knowledge to predict,
but it ia safe to say that many of the
rumors in circulation were gross exaggerations, nud thst there is no need
Ior any repitition of tlie financial hysteria which niarked the August breaks
in the stock market.
Since January first we have hnd a
shrinkage in securities ol fully, if not
over f3,50O,0<JO,0OO. M»ny good railroad shares have had their values cut
in ball during that period, The industrials have suffered even more drastic
decline, being cut not only into halves
but into thirds and quarters, Alter
inch a tremendous .-1.linkage, it ii almost Mly !•. talk of panic. Violent
breaks may bc pussihle hut the

CHINA SANK
AT WHARF
Remarkable Accident Happens
to Empress-Scheduled to
Sail on Tuesday - Will Probably be Delayed.
Vancouver, Oct. 25.—Through an
open sea valve, or condenser discharge,
wnter commenced to pour into the
engine-room ol the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's Oriental liner,
Empress ol China, at 5:40 o'clock
Wednesday night, as she lay at her
berth on the inlet Iront just to the
weBt of Granville street.
The peril of the big steamship was
first noticed by some longshoremen
who were engaged io stowing cargo in
her alter hold. They noticed that she
suddenly took a list and in a very few
minutes she commenced to settle
rapidly.
The alarm wae immediatly raised,
and the ship's crew and engineroom
watch warned to close over port.
A hurry call was sent to Chief Carlisle of the Fire Department for engines. The engines arrived one of
.them waB started to work, but the
effect was like a man drawing water
from a bucket through a straw while
some person was pouring it in with a
tumbler.
The hig veBsei commenced to settle
rapidly by the stern; she was dropping
at the rate ol Irom four to six feet an
hour, by 8 o'clock her stern ports were
under water and there waB seven feet
of wnter in her engine-room.
Diver James Moore was requisitioned to go down nnd plug the sea discharge. At 11:15 o'clock he had sue-
cesslully closed the gaping ten-inch
hole.
At midnight the vessel lay on the
bottom alt and taking a list to starboard. She nearly lell off into deep
water at 1 o'clock this morning. Tackle from her mainmast to the wharf
girders snapped and the liner lurched
outward, but the bulk ol the coal hulk
Robert Kerr aided in holding her in
position and the anxious watchers
knew that the worst was over.
At i o'clock next morning the
steamer Salvor was alongside the Empress of China and was soon hoisting
a ten-inch pump aboard her. In the
afternoon the China raised at tho rate
of six inches nn hour and tonight she
should be clear of water.
The Empress oi China is scheduled
to Bail for Japanese and Chinese ports
on Tuesday morning, but it is not
likely that sho will get away till later
in the week. Engine-room, holds,
storerooms ond staterooms were damaged by the water nnd the .. bnlo interior of the liner will hnve to be
overhauled before Bhe will be in condition to sail. A small army of men
will be put to work on her today to
get her ready for sea as soon as pnsai
ble, as she is under heavy forfeiture
bonds to deliver her mails in Hong
kong on time.

LACK OF SUPPORT,
Apropos ol the recent decision by
the management ol the itosilai.d
Miner to suspend its daily publication
owing to lack ol local support, the
Nelson Daily Canadian has the l.illuw-
ing to say: "In its issue..1 this morning, the Rossland Daily Miner announces tbat the daily issue would be
discontinued and hereafter tl.e Miner
would be continued as a weekly. The
reaion tor thii is mauilest. The Daily
Miner has heen a losing enterprise Inr
years. Continued industrial depression
led to retrenchment in business and
continued curtailment in advertising
patronage. For years thc Miner had
been in the hands ol an incapable
management, and when Mr, Esling
assum.*) control the paper was a
wreck, Mr. Esling made an heroic
effort to restore confidence In the
paper, hut had times combined with
other causes rentier, d the attempt
futile. The Rossland Miner is another
instance of tho fallacy of trying to
successfully oonduct a $2,000 a month
pap.T in :... $800 a in.nun town. Rossland "ill never have another daily
newspaper, and it will altogether
depend on the generosity of the business men of lhat city whether or nut
the weekly edition oan lie continued.
SAVE WHILE YOl* CAN.
An era oi prosperity always tends
to bring about an era ol extravagance
and very little thought as a rule is
given to the future and tu the necessity uf putting by for a rainy day. At
the present time the in..ney stringency
is making itself felt on nil sides, and
those who have lived up to the top
notch find that when money is nol
avi.iliil.le, there coiucb frequently a
serious drop. This tendency to keep
the list of expenditures up to the
limit ol ine...ne is always strongly
marked, not only among those who
are will supplied with this world's
goods, but ulsn ...nung the peoplo who
have tho must need oi setting aside
some part ol each week's wages.
Within recent date there has been
a marked increase in the prices of
necessities, so that the man of average salary today is better oft than he
was several years ngu in spile ol the
fact that the chronio growler may
lament strongly the increased est uf
living The money stringency has
hurne out the lact lew people wore
prepared fur it, and in many cases
seriotiB complications have arisen
which could have heen well avoided if
the possible contingency uf ll.e tigh
tening ul purse strings had been
anticipated, It is these tempory embarrassments which prove the test and
n oommunity at large will benelit us a
whole hy a little looking ahead, Few
people pay in nch attention, however,
tu gloomy loreshadowings, but it is
nevertheless true.
SUOOEBSFU L DISHONESTY
There has been u sharp turn of
feeling iu financial quarters since thc
donouuient hy the Knickerbocker
Trust Co., and from exhaustive enquiries renewed confidence in tho New
York lucal hanking institutions has
taken the place of the panicky feeling
that has threatened solvent house's
and demoralised the Stock Exchange.
Leading financiers are of opinion that
the worst is over and that out of the
present confusion, more stable conditions will rapidly Bhape themselves.
The deplorablo condition oi the Btock
market haB intimidated every one and
public faith in even the moit respectable nnd gilt edged institutions lias
heen shaken. Reckless gi.nil.ling with
trust funds and public deposits bus
made investors nervous. Thc ell'ect of
the financial crisis must have a certain ell'ect upon Canada, since Cans
dian money has been I. g ly inv. ■
over on the ..ther side. That Canada
s''..iikl Buffer through Ihe malpractices
of the States is not right Successful
dishonesty lias been at the bottom ol
all the financial stress, nud the tendency bus heen to sit, quiet while
wealth)" men sel the standard ol
successful dishonesty which must of
necessity be alluring to the young
incu who il cm it right and p...per to
follow ex.....pie in business trickery,
uf violation and ovaeion uf thc law, of
stock gambling and swindling a.'
roads to success. By doing this public
conscience deteriorates and the ignorant and vie reliction tramples out
the right as Well as the wrong.
Ho est b-siiiess men will suffer for
tho misdeeds ot the dishonest. The
process of gaining wealth by successful
dishonesty should lie stopped before it
goes su far us to invite the reaction
belore mentioned and belore the blow
has (..lieu on the just us well as the
unjust.
A rational movomont fur supervision uud con:. ,1 over the use, over the
accumulation mul husimss use, of
these great fortunes should l.e made
and a proper supervision relegated iu
the interest ol the general public, ol
thee colossal Iortui.es which singly or
in combination nre of such importance
to the modern industrial world, to
control and supervise theni so that in
their nccuiniihi!inn aud business use
there shall he- no wrong doing to the
.-fulfil man in which the small man is
a competitor, wage worker or investor,
That the panic wave now threatening
the New World is temporary is certain, hut now is the time to prevent
its repetition, Canadian money has
been endangered and is in danger Imt
llinl danger is now tcing averted.
While our money is thus wavering we
cannot hut realize that in spite of all
ihe solidity of the west stands on a
safer I'.isis than any other part ol the
Nnrth American couth.cut ..nil even
il the uncertainty as to what the morrow will bring forth, under the present
conditions, is a cloud ol the- country,
a reaction is hound to follow.
CANADIAN CREDIT
Is being lujured by Touting of
Municipal Bonds.
Toronto, Oct. 25.—The WorM this
morning publishes the following wireless message received from its correspondent in London through the Marconi Bystem at Glace Bay. "That the
credit ol Canadian municipalities is
being damaged, and the national
credit hurt, hy the recent touting oi
municipal bonds iu Loudon by the
various cities and towns ot the Dominion." "I believe," the correspondent
continues. "The cities of Canada
ou..1.1 get money at a reasonable rate
if they went the right way about it.
But if they want English money you
musl follow English methods. Canada
u ;hl not to be weakened in the
in. ney market l y such tactics."

MERCHANTS
Revelsloke a City ol   High
Grade and Up-to-date Stores.
In previous i«sues we have, treated
upon the general advantages to be
accrued hy living in Kevelstoke and
the possibilities ol our city becoming
one of the leading ceutres in the
province, hence the desirability of
choosing Kevelstoke as a city wherein
to establish a home. But our city
would never be a city at all were it
not for our merchants. Jt is to them
we must look to keep up the solidity
of the town, The establishment of
stores and other business houses causes
the Circulation of money which is the
chief factor in every day commercial
life. Visitors to our stores will be at
once nt ruck hy the universal neat appearance and general lively air ahout
them and on looking over the stock
they will see that the commodities are
all ot thc latest grades and styles,
olean and fresh. We believe were are
right in snying that the "hump ol
business ability" is very strongly
marked in Revelsloke, and this has
been elenionstrated by the attractive
appearance ol the stores and the class
of goods displayed. There may be
some who say that some of the goods
aro ol indifferent quality and high
priced. That may be, and is it not so
all the world over? On the other
hand, when it is considered the excessive freight and express charges on all
goods shipped here, it is only to he
expected that the customer must pny
theni besides profit to the merchant
But it must be remembered that
reasonable profit only should be made,
unless ouBtomers are to be sent to deal
at mail order house., which is a contingency lo be scrupulously prevented
and avoided. A happy medium should
be struck which will bring its own
rewarJ.
Our city merchants are assuredly
deserving of every credit fur the enterprise they have displayed in the stocking of their premises. In every branch
the "latest" can be obtained while a
large selection can be chosen irom,
giving tbe purchaser every opportunity
of Buiting his own taste. The progressive spirit thus displayed will aid
materially in the up-building ot Revelstoke and it Bhould be the aim oi
every merchant to prevent at all costB
even a dollar fron. being spent in
catalogue bouses, where the customer
has no choice except what is sent him
and goods of probably inferior quality.
The following instance will show the
generally speaking poor policy of thus
doing: "A man went into a hardware store to buy an axe, being shown
the article and informed that the
price was $1.25, he said. 'Why I can
get that Irom a mail order house for
90c.J 'Very well then,' said the hardware man, 'I will give it to you lor
the B.inie price, provided that you will
do the same with me ss you would
with then..' 'Alright,' replied the
customer, as he handed over a dollar
bill and received back 10 cents change.
'Now' said lhe hardware man, 'I want
35 cents more to pay express charges,'
which the purchaser gave him. 'How
much did your axe cost you?' 'One
dollar and twenty-five cents,' announced the customer. 'Very good,
now give me five cents for money
order fees and postage,' whicli the
purchaser had to hind over. -Now
how much did the axe coBt you.' 'One
dollar and thirty cents,' was the reply,
'Not so cheap alter all,' said the merchant, whereupon he picked up the
axe, t ssed it back on tbe shelf and
told the customer to call in about
three weeks for it, as that would be
as soon as he could get it from the
mail order house.

The management invites thc general
patronage ol the Revelstoke public
and will endeavor to give every satisfaction. The premises will ho open

will be given to catering.
In addition to the restaurant extensive alterations to the main
building will be carried out, a portion
ot the work, that ol new lavatories

UNION RESTAURANT
Premises Renovated and Improved
Extensive alterations are now being

in taking over the restaurant hi...sell,
has closed up the premises while the

complete overhaul ol the diningroom,
etc. A large and commodious kitchen
has been built with all the latest improvements in heating, ventilating,
etc., and a tine new range will he

ARROWHEAD SOCIAL
Farewell to Rev. Mr. McColl
and Family.
A very pleasant event took place at
Arrowhead on Tuesday evening last in
the Presbyterian Church in the lorm
ol a farewell social to tbe Rev. Mr.
McColl, and family, who is leaving to
take charge of another field in tbe
Xew WeBt minster district, to which
he had received a call. The church
was well filled with friends who regretted hi*/departure. A musical aud
literary program consisting of vocal
and instrumental music, recitations,
readings and speeches, contributed by
Dr, E.liott, Mr. Darkness, Mr. and
Miss Whitebread, Mrs, Giles, Mr. and

Speeches were made by Mr. Harry
Johnson, Mr. J. R. Thompson, Mr. D.
A. Dewar nnd others.
Vi. R. Keid was called on to act as
chairn.au and fulfilled his duties in a
very able manner. At the conclusion
ol the program the chairman asked
the Rev. Mr. McColl to come forward
when he presented him with a well
filled purse oi $156 and an address.
Mr. McColl, who was completely taken
by surprise, replied in a very leeling
manner, alter which refreshments
were Berved hy the ladies who had
amply provided lor the occasion. The
meeting wrs brought to a close by the
singing oi "God be with you till we
meet again." Much credit is due tho
ladies, Mrs. Dewar, Mrs. Capt. FraBer,
MrB. Vaughan, and Mrs. Bayer, who
took the matter in hand and carried it
out so successfully.
The following is a copy oi the address presented   to Mr. and Mrs. Mo-
Coll:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. McColl,
We, the members of your congregation, learn of your departure Iron, our

may be lung spared in the service ol
tho Lord. We aBk you to accept this
