immediately the bill receives
the assent, which will make it
law, his department is ready to
enforce it to the limit of pro
vincial power even though it
should invite the action of the
federal authorities, precipitating a contest in the courts as
to the respective rights and
powers of the province and the
dominion in immigration legis
lation.
When the Natal bill passed its second reading at the
sitting of the legislature this
week. The debate was mark
ed by a speech from the Hon.
Richard McBride, in which he
summed up the arguments for
the passage of the bill, eloquently defended the measure
against the attacks which had
been made upon it and through
it upon the sincerety of the
government and the Conser
vative members of the house.
The premier rehearsed his
own stand upon the question
of Asiatic immigration throughout his public life, and pointed
out that it has always been consistent. He contrasted it with
the stand which had been taken by the premier of the dominion, bir Wilfrid Laurier, who
had not fulfilled the promise
made in 1896 on the eve of an
election.
Mr. McBride pointed out
that the Conservatives had always tried to keep this question out of politics, and if in
any way it had become a question of politics it was through
the act of the Liberals and the
Liberal press.
The speech of the leader of
the government was a thoughtful one, and was the final word
mission that he is no longer
dangerous to be at large. The
popular opinion in New York
is that this would not be long

is a five inch parting of slate which

partings the coal brought to bank

It is the intention of the management to open up two new drifts

twenty tons a day and the amount
should be increased by the end of

The coal produced has justified

sayer, says:
"This coal is of good bituminous

It is of good domestic and steaming quality, and is very valuable

EXAMPLE FOR AMERICANS.
The Phoenix Pioneer of recent date has the following
article which shows the stability of Canadian banking laws:
The Sovereign Bank, one
of the chartered Canadian institutions, has gone into liquidation, and its business has
been taken over by other
chartered banks in Canada.
The eminently wise banking
laws of Canada have made
this transfer possible, and not a
depositor in the Sovereign
Bank will lose a dollar.
News to this effect has been
spread broadcast, and while it
is not particularly to the credit
of the officers of this bank that
it should have practically failed
it is a source of congratulation
that the system���not the "system" of our socialist friends,
nor that of Thomas W. Law-
son���has thus again been tried
in the balance and not found
wanting.
Where else in the world, let
us ask, could a bank with 79
branches, scattered throughout
the country, go to the wall and
yet not have the rank and file
of depositors suffer:" Certainly
not in the United States, where
we are accustomed to look
when things financial are mentioned. Had the failure occurred there, depositors by the
thousand would have mourned
their loss and cursed the bankers and the government, too.
And they could hardly be
blamed, either.
It is another signal proof ol
the efficacy of the Canadian
banking system, and our
American cousins, who are now
looking around to find a plan
of quick relief in times of financial stringency, would do
well to take a leaf from this
book and study it carefully.
It should work just as well

RMUltl
M. J. Henry's annual seed
test is now in progress at his
nurseries near Vancouver. At
his greenhouses samples of
seed taken from each consignment as they arrive from his
growers in Holland, France,
California and Washington,
are carefully planted, labelled
and numbered, showing from
which grower it was received,
and the germination noted, so
as to be absolutely sure of their
vitality before shipping out to
his customers. He has also
imported a recleaninrr mill for
grass and grain seeds and so
far his seeds have been up 25
and above the government
standards as to vitality and
freedom from weed seeds.
Readers should bear this in
placing their orders for spring
a report came
planting.   As
out in one of the eastern pap
ers last fall that "coast trees
would not stand the cold climate of the upper country." Mr.
Henry was pleased to receive
an unsolicited letter from one
of his customers near Vernon
who planted 2,000 of his trees
in the fall of 1906. These passed through the extreme cold
winter of 1906-07 and the report was "all growing and
thrifty except hall-a-c'ozen in
jured moles." This ought to
convince the most sceptical
planter that home grown fruit
trees, when properly planted
and cultivated, cannot be excelled for planting in British
Columbia.
