ADVUH I ISINu UAThA on application,
A London paper, the Daily Telegraph, has come out
flat-footed with the statement that the persistency and
.size of Canadian demands for loans have been solely re-
spdnsible for the raising of the price against Canada and
perpetuating of the tight money situation towards the
Dominion. To prove its statement the Daily Telegraph
estimates that during 1913 this country had British capital advanced totalling three hundred and ten millions oi
dollars, as compared with two hundred and thirtv millions in 1912.
If the London daily is correct in its estimates and
conclusions���and there is every reason for supposing tha*.
it knows what it is talking about���theh there are only two
courses open to the Dominion, to cut down the borrowing,
or to go elsewhere for loans.
To cut down the borrowing, that is to reduce the bids
as they stand at present, pruned by the past twelve
months or so of hard and fast money, looks to be the
next to an impossibility. The hysterical demand for cash
for the poorer brand of purposes has been knocked out of
the Dominion by its experiences of the past year and
there remains only those requests for loans which are
absolutely necessary to municipalities and bona fide corporations. Canada has gone so far in her development
that to withdraw would mean defeat and the loss of billions in capital for the present and future. Moreover Canada does not intend to halt on the road to her legitimate
goal. She has the strength and the solidity to warrant
her onward march and she has the security to offer for
every dollar she needs to aid her advance; therefore if
she cannot get money in the mother country it is a certainty that sooner or later Canadian requests for cash
will turn into other channels and the United Kingdom
will lose forever its most fruitful field of investment,
while at the same time there will be weakened one of the
bonds of empire.
The Dominion has listened patiently while the supposedly wise over the water have been criticizing her
mode of procedure without really knowing the truth of
conditions as they exist in this country. She has taken
all this criticism, some of it absolutely uncalled for, and
has maintained a dignified silence; but this will not last
forever and if the British capitalist wishes to retain the
confidence of the Canadian borrower he must show himself as willing to meet good securities as some other foreign financiers appear to be.

Precisely how far a big kangaroo
can jump is a mailer of some dispute.
A writer In Caswell's Natural History says that they can leap "over ten,
if teen or more feet." Mr. II. It Francis
tells us that he has "known an 'old
man' to cover nineteen feet at each
bound for full half a mile.'' and be
believes that be does leap "an average
Df full twenty feet."
Mr. I.ydekker Is of opinion that the
treat kangaroo leaps "not far short of
thirty feet," and Mr. Thomas Ward
gives It as "at least thirty feet" I'rob*
sbly Mr. Rudyard Kipling's "twenty-
five feet to a bound" Is near enough
as a general rule
But with this more than Olympic
leaping power they seem commonly
either unable or unwilling to rise any
height from the ground Their specialty Is broad Jumping only. Mr.
Ward says that they "cannot clear on
obstacle greater than four feet." and a
five foot fence is commonly bigb
enough for any kangaroo paddock.���

Memory In Old Age.
Ways of the memory In later life exercised tbe famous Dr. Jowett of Oxford when be reached it. but he fonhd
consolation. "At fifty tire you fall to
remember things���words, pictures, person*���after six months or a year's in
terval. Yet tbe circle or Objects wbicb
you recognize Is ever becoming wider,
and this power of recognition Is a
great gift If cultivated. There Is the
greatest value in 'forgotten knowledge' Instead of the stores of memory oppressing you, with a little trouble you can recall all that Is useful ot
necessary." And to I.ndy Wemyss, re
covering from illness, be wrote: "I.Ike

San Francisco, Jan. 7.���More than
a thousand tons of glass will be used
iu tlm construction of the buildings

been contracted for to be used on
eight of the main exhibit palaces. In

As children, our first demand is for nourishment; our
second for fads.
All through life we go about
searching for information.
We make a new acquaintance;
but before we will accept him
as a friend or invite him to our
home we ask for fads about him.
We visit a foreign land; and from
the moment we _tep across its
border we are asking questions���
searching for fads.
We are asked to try a new food produd; isn't it instindive
with us to ask at once:
"Who makes this new article ?"
" How is it made ? what goes into it ?
"Is it worth the price charged for it ?"
Facts���we are simply hungry for them.
Strange, isn't it, that we should so often have to search for
them ? Odd, that some manufadurers .till withhold the fads
about their produd. Not always because they are fads to be
ashamed of���for there are many worthy articles yet unadvertised.
But it will not be so much longer. The fad-hunger of the
human race is becoming keener and keener. The more fads
we get, the keener our relish for more of them.
Soon it will be impossible to sell a man or a woman anything

Mr. Brown's Address.
"We regret very much the delay
which has taken place in submitting
to you the annual reports and accounts, and In holding this meeting;
but year by year tlm work of prepar
ing and auditing tin- accounts and
of analyzing, considering, nud adjusting them (/rows heavier and heavier,
and this year, in spile of every effort,
ii has been impossible to submit them
in an earlier date. We also regret
that the report is not of a more satisfactory nature. I know that u number nf shareholders have been s

Is occurring In our earnings, 1 think
they are needlessly alarm",I Op' ���������
Lunati ly, I can not tell you that   this
period Of bard limes is over. I do

until the end of the Canadian winter
thai is to s'.iy, until April or May
next; bnl I do think we shall then see
a gradual general improvement In,
commercial conditions, which will be
reflected in our earnings, and that
there will be n complete return of
proepi rlty and progress In 1915, l
give Ibis merely as my personal opinion,  but  my  considered  opinion,   for
that we are inclined to be unduly
alarmed by a comparatively unimportant decrease. We can not have all
sunshine and no shadow. There Is
nothing in the situation to justify the
very heavy full iii tile price of our
[securities and stocks, which has
I been brought about by the selling of
Stockholders whose fears have been
aroused by tiie general fall In Canadian and other securities, and by the
decrease In our earning'-, and specially by the newspaper reports of an
'agitation in British Columbia to In-
j duco parliament to enact certain
measures restricting our rights to li-:
I fare.* and charges. Again, 1 believe
; I can safely say that these fears arc
needless. Our rights are regulated by
the conditions contained in acts of
parliament and municipal agreements
which constitute a solemn and frequently reaffirmed bargain made by
the people Of British Columbia to induce you to Invest your money in
their country. They can only be
changed by an act of parliament.
which, whether it directly restricted
our rights to make certain maximum
charges, or empowered a public commission to do so, would constitute a
complete breach of faith, We rest
confidently in the bands of a responsible British government and a responsible British parliament, who are
nol In tin* least likely to b':;d themselves to m;cb dishonest proceedings,
which would destroy the good name
of the province throughout the financial world and stop the raising of
capital for any purpose in British Columbia for vears tr> crime..
Affect of Agitation.
As may be seen from the attitude
of the leading British Columbia newspapers, there is no body of responsible public opinion behind tills agitation, which   is    the work of   certain
; noisy    and    ill-informed    individuals,
who, by correspondence in  the press,
ami sometimes   by    public  speeches,
give  expression  lo  statements  which
are  misleading and generally    absolutely false and so make it difficult to
(raise    capital    tor    expenditure    In
I British  Columbia.    I   mention  this in
iorder to allay the fears that some of
! our shareholders may entertain en the
subject, and to point out to the public
in   British   Columbia   Uia:   these   irresponsible utterances do serious barm
to die provinoe, and particularly   to
lWorking men.   if the Introduction of
Capital for new works and enterprises
ceases, employment for the working
classes necessarily   diminishes.   The
publicity given  to this agitation  lias
bad  iis effect  in curtailing the inflow
of capital into the province, and ther.*
; is, in consequence,   less   demand for
labor.   The agitation referred to arose
dul   of a  slight  rise  in  certain   fares,
which   was  absolutely     necessary     in
order    to    maintain    the    financial
stability of the company, and mainly
supported by fatuous statements   to
the eiTect thai our company had been
COlulng untold wealth. Our critics
never tire of stating that we are paying K per cent. upon our share capital; but they omit to say that we are
only paying X per cent, on the par
value of our deferred share capital,
and that the deferred share capital
has been subscribed at a large premium, and amounts to little more
than one-seventh part, of our Investment, and that the deferred shareholders take, and have taken, all tho
risks of a pioneer enterprise, from
which the people of British Columbia
have benefitted enormously. Tbe
money actually expended on the enterprise amounts to $46,000,000, on
which the interest and dividends paid
out last year were equal to less than
4'i per cent. We have from time to
tiiin voluntarily reduced our charges,
and shall be only too pb.ascd to do
bo again when our profits justify it.
We are at present charging a very-
great deal less than the maximum we
nre. entitled to charge, and which, in
some cases, we could charge with rea
noil. For instance, we should, owing
to the high price of coal, have been
entirely justified in Increasing our
price for gas throughout this year;
but. we have not done so, as we hoped
the unfortunate strike by the coal
miners would end, and we have tried
to avoid increasing the , xpenael Of
our customi rs during the prevailing
bad times; but if the strike continues
we may be forced to adopt IIhf
Increased Capital.
On the subject of further capital
expenditure, although the directors
are asking for power to create additional share capital, they have no in-
tentlon of issuing it at presi nt. nor do
they , xpeot to it-sue it during the next
y,*ar (bear, hear!), but it is necessary
that they should have power lo issue
additional shares as and when that
course becomes desirable, Meanwhile,
l can give the shareholders the most
d< finite assurance that capital expenditure lias for some time past been
ciii down to the very lowest possible
amount, and that we shall continue
to limit it to absolute necessities until
we receive greater encouragemi ni and
the pressure of genuine demand for
our various services proves that it. Is
what It is worth. If I am right, II
means that next year's report may be
even less satisfactory than th'.* present one, but that we shall have good
results to show in 1915. I believe that
tli is period of halt will in the end
prove good for the country and for
our company, and  that it will  result
In cheaper conditions of living and B
very sound economic positio.i in British Columbia. Meanwhile, we must
exercise patience and be thankful
that, owing to the prudent policy of
reinvesting portions of our profits In
the past we are now able to face one
or two slack years with equanimity.
We have, perhaps, been a little spoiled with too much prosperity. We have
enjoyed increase upon increase in
earnings month by month for sixteen
y-ais, and have become SO accustomed to this happy state of affairs
necessary and will be remunerative. 1
���aunt not bo understood to suggest
that any of our capital expenditure in
the past has been unwise or unnecessary. In looking back over the record
of tbe past ten years, I see very little
expenditure that has not been entirely
justified, and that will not prove remunerative. Our great water power
installations al 1-uke Bunt-en and
Lake Coquitlam, and at Jordan river,
on which sucli large sums of money
have been spent, are practically completed. They are asseta of great and
permanent value, and will. .*.<��� anticipate, meet any increase iu the power
requirements of the company for
some years. We have no new enterprises or railway extensions of an extensive character iu conti mplation. 1
have received a number of letters
from shareholders urging thai we
should not Invest any further mom y
at all In British Columbia This, of
course, is neither desirable in the interests of the company nor possible.
N'i w householders in our districts ar>*
entitled to be supplied with power,
and the travelling public ore entitled
to have their increasing needs provided for. All this requires a certain
amount of capital expenditure, but. as

Mrs.   Rennie  of   Sapperton,   Considering Request of Large Delegation
���Was School Teacher.
Sapperton will probably bave one
candidate for election to the school
board. This became known yesterday
following the visit of a prominent
delegation to the home of .Mrs. George
Rennie, Keary street, asking her to
stand for election. Mrs. Rennie has
yet to make the final decision but it
woman, however, contrives to add
to her income very considerably
year by year, even if she does not
draw her entire source of livelihood
from the moans at her disposal liy
reason of her position.
It is now quite a common thing
for a lady of birth to take one or two
girls year by year, and not only to
present them at Court, but to introduce them Into circles into which
they could not otherwise obtain entrance. Once a lady has herself appeared at Court, and her character
is above reproach, she is entitled to
present as many girls as she wishes,
not more than two, however, being
allowed for any one Court, save In
especial  circumstances.
A  lady well place'  In society  has
j likewise   many   other   means  al   her
I disposal to add to ber Income.   Thut
j these are not always legitimately em-
| ployed  .vas plainly proved sometime
; ago when a prosecution was lnstitut-
e I at  How  Street against one fal    f
I well  known  In society  for disposing
of the  "vouchers"   she   received    In
the ordinary course admitting ber to
tbe royal enclosure at   Ase  t.    It  is
laid down  that  these shall  be only
available for those who bave the entree  at  Court,  und  each   voucher  Is
plainly  marked   with   the  Intimation
that   it   Is   "not   transferable."     it
would, however, puzzle many   to   be
seen   there,  especially  on   the   "Cup
Day,"   lo  explain  exactly   bow    they
gained   admittance,    and    only    two
years ago an American lad.' paid for
1     self and her daughter tiie sum of
$1,250    for    two    of    these    coveted
This is to be explained by reason
of the fact that presence in tbe royal
enclosure, which is readily published
in all the society papers, Implies a
certain standing at Court, and brings
one in:o more or less intimate contact with both the King and Queen.
Therefore tho lists of those whom it
is proposed to invite . extremoly-
carefully drawn up by the Lord
Chamberlain, tb Steward of Ascot
(Viscount Churchill), and their sub-
ordinatea, and   is   subjected   to the
is expected that she will accede to the  closest   scrutiny   by   both   the   King
req lies,-.
Mrs. Rennie, while* never holding
office on the school board before
was for many yeara a school teacher,
and therefore has an insight in the
work of the organization.

your Canadian  investments, to be  in
the  least  degree  shaken  by    present

year again amply justified every claim
that lias been made for hi r.   Her production of wealth    from    field    crops
and larin  produce, and  from  mineral
and oihi r natural resources, has been
greater than ever before, and the only
trouble  has  been  of a  monetary  nature,    a    recurrence of which    it    is
hoped will be prevented in the future.

instance, to call your attention to    a
slight mistake In the report. We have
'received  a  cable  that  the  figures  of
' the miles of single track In operation
'in 1913 are wrong:   they    should    be
334.02,  instead  of 357.82.    I  now  beg
; to propose:   "That  Un* balance sheet

Mr. Blundell Brown next moved:
"That the bent thanks of the meeting
be given to th: general manager, officers and s;_ff In British Columbia
for their untiring and successful services in the performance of their very
arduous duties." He* stated that h<*
had spent three months In British Columbia along with Mr. Harvey, and li *
could personally testify to the zeal

officers and staff there.
Mr. Harvey seconded the motion, ���
which   was unanimously adopted.
Messrs. Norton, Blade & Co. (London)  and  Messrs.  Helliwell, Moore A
Maclachlan   (Vancouver]   were  reap-j
pointed auditors.
The  chairman  next  moved:   "That I
th   capital of the company be* Increas*
ed   to   ��6,000,000  by  the  creation  of
400,000 new shares of ��1 each."    He
remarked that the directors had con-1
siticred the matter very carefully and j
they  asked  the  stockholders  to   pass
the resolution  because they felt that '
it was in their best interests.
Mr. Harvey aeconded the resolution.
Mr. Davenport pointed out that the:
directors   already   had   the  power  to
Issue    another     ��_SO,000    worth    or j
shares and he thought that that would
have   been   sufficient   for   any   emer-1
gency  that might arise.
After   considerable   discussion   ths
resolution was adopted, with a few dis-1
sentients.     Mr.   Davenport   then   de-1
manded a poll.
Mr. Richardson urged the* stock- j
holders to repose confidence In the di- |
Mr. Wllloughby said that if they did
not pass the resolution it would be
equivalent to a vote of want of confidence in the board���(cries of "No"
���besides a want of gratitude and
recognition of what they had done for
the  stock  holders  in  the  past.
A stockholder remarked that if they
could trust the board with ��4,600.000
hi thought they could afford to trust
them with another ��400,000. (Hear.
Another stockholder said he was one
of the oldest members of the company
and he had every confidence in the
chairman and his colleagues.
Mr. Evan-Thomas stated that the
company was a very large going concern and had obligations towards the i
municipalities under franchises, etc.,
and he felt as a man of business, that
it was not wise for them to go on with I
so small a margin of unissued capital
as   ��280,000.
Mr. Davenport said that in thi circumstances he would withdraw his demand for a poll. (Applause.) The
matter had been thoroughly ventilated and the board understood the feeling of the Btock holders, that capital
expenditure s'aould he cut down. He

A. HAl-JBU-.-ON,
Ri turning   Officer.
Province of British Columbia, County
of Westminster.
Hy virtue of a warrant under a conditional bill of sale in ail action by
the Brunswick Balko Collender Company and to me directed against the
goods aud chattels of M. K. Corbett
and A. B. <- hamberlin 1 have seized
and taken the following:
One 6x10 carrotn table, three 6x12
billiard    tables,    seven    pool    tables.
capital of the company.    Every time
capital   was  asked    for    it  naturally
meant that theie was to be a further
charge on the company, and he would
ask the directors seriously to consider
I whether   they   should   press  the   pro-
j posed  increase that  day.    The stockholders had been told that it was not
to be issued this year or next year:  in
that case, why did the    directors not
wait    until the next    annual  general
'melting    before   making   the   issue?
j ( Hear, hear.)    He would  not like  to
vote against the proposition, but    he
'hoped  the directors   would give    the
��� stockholders an    assurance    that    no
further capital would be isiued.
Mr. C, W. Butler asked if the chairman could give him some idea of the
extent and value of tiie company's land
holdings ln the Saanieh peninsula. He
thought Caere w-as some development
going on there which might materialize sooner or later.
The Chairman'* Reply.
The chairman, in reply, stated that
Mr. Home*Payne, in his address had
most emphatically told the stockholders that the directors had no present
intention of issuing the proposed new
capital. They were taking this opportunity of getting the power because
they must have some capital in hand
to issue if necessary. If they did not
take, the power now it would be necessary lo call the stockholders together
again and the time might be very inopportune. With regard to local advisers, they were tried for a number
of years, but the arrangement was discontinued. With regard to the land
in the Saanlch peninsula, it was acquired under very favorable conditions
and when times mendi��d he thought
there would be a chance of selling It
at a very considerable profit. A considerable quantity oT laud came to the
company as a bonus for taking the
railway through the peninsula.
The resolution was then put and carried unanimously.
Mr. Harold Brown next moved:
"That the payment of the interim dividends be approved and that the following dividend be now declared, viz:
On the deferred ordinary stock at the
rate cf S per cent per annum, for the
six months ended June 30, 1913, ��0040

were endeavoring to cut down capital
expenditure as much as possible but
that tiie company's engagements had
