Use of Dominion Dredge
Means Saving of Thirty
Harbor  Englnssr  Suggests  Bids  Be
Csllsd   for   Dredge,   Derrick*,
8oow�� and Tug.
It thn recommendations of Harbor
Engineer A. O. Powell to the eifect
that bids be called for the supply of
one 3-yard clam shsll, stiff-leg dredge;
three wooden scows, 33x100x8 %', and
one- new or second hand steam tug
nre adopted by the harbor committee,
to which it was referred by the council Isst night, another step towards
ths start in the actual construction
work on the barbor Improvements
wlll have been taken.
Thp above will be part of the equipment used In the work. The engineer
also recom t mded that the tenders be
advertised in the local papers, two
Vsncouver papers, the Seattle papers,
ths Building -Record, Vancouver, thei
Canadian Engineer and the Contract
Record of Toronto. Though the equipment wtll be secured primarily for the
harbor Improvements, it will always
be at the disposal of the cky for
any other harbor work tbat may be
required to be done.
It ls proposed to use the tug after
the harbor work Is completed for
towing the garbage scows out to the
Gulf for dumping. At present J2�� a
day Is paid to a local firm for this
serrice. Thus a considerable sum
ptr annum will be saved by the city.
It is understood that, In view of the
harbor work being done hy the day
labor system, the council figures oh
securing the services of one of the
Dominion dredge* on the coast tor
supplying Uie material'for the fill between the old and new water line* on
Front street. This, It Is believed, will
effect a saving of some $30,000 to
$40,000 In the cost of the Improve
ments.   7-^^M^
Mr. Curtis Is Also Inclined to Keep
Out of Municipal Politics Next     <
.    Yssr.
After having two full days to consider the matter, Mr. T. K. Annandale
yesterday morntng Informed the delegation which had approached him regarding the mayoralty, that he could
not Bee hls way clear to entering the
race against Alderman Gray thiB year
at least.
His refusal came as no little surprise to the delegation who bad confidently expected Mr. Annandale to
allow his name to be mentioned. They
next directed their efforts towards securing Alderman D. S. Curtis.
Mr. Curtis' name has been mentioned from time to time as a mayoralty
possibility. The retiring alderman
would not give a decision yesterday
afternoon.  >
"This municipal politics Is a great
game," stated Mr. Curtis. "A few
weeks agd when I announced my retirement I fully expected the citizens
would let me alone, aud that I would
be allowed to attend to my private
business and get on a car lu the evening with a feeling that no meetings
had to be attended at the City Hall
that nlgbt. Tbey won't let me rest,
however, but 1 canuot divulge in;
plan for tbe future for a few days at

Though it was regretted thatprob

ell decided last night to grant, tin-
application of tbe B. C. E. R. for per
mission to .Install a spur tragi oc

This action was taken on the recom
mendatlon of Mayor l^cC, who staffed
that the council had viewed the grade;
of both Fourth avenue and Arbutus

On Recommendation of Light Committee Council Awarded New Contract for a Period
of Eleven Years, Commencing To-morrow���City Will Save Between $8,000 and
$10,000 as a Result���Powers Contracting Company Presents Bills for Work oil the
Arena, Which Council Refuses to Pay���Trouble Will Not Affect Establishment of
Ice Rink. / i
The councll thst nlgbt on thn re-
commandation of the light committee,
awarded the B.C.E.R. Company the
contract to supply the city with electric curent for a period of 11 years
dating from Jan. 1, 1913 at the rate
of 1.25 per kilowatt hour.
The proposition of the B.C.E.R. was
of a very satisfactory nature to the
mayor and aldegmen; and, by a special arrangement made between the
officials of the- company and the
light committee;, the contract will go
into effect on Jan. 1���tomorrow���instead of on Marcli 1, 1914, thua giving
the city the benefit of the new rate at
The present rate is 1.46 per kilowatt
hour, with the contribution of an additional $100 paid monthly by the city
for the upkeep of the substation, thus
the new rate wljl effect a saving of
$8,000 to $10,000 next year alone, ac-
carding to Alderman Gray, who introduced the recommendation on behalf
of Alderman Lynch, chairman of the
light committee,  who  was  absent.
"Inasmuch as tho present contracl
runs for 13 months from Jan. 1 at
1.48," satd Alderman Gray, and we
pay $100 monthly for the upkeep of
the'substation, by effecting an agreement now, the cl{y will save in the
price of current and other expenses,
an amount running into the thousands;
And, in view of the fact that the Company agrees tp-establish another sub-
in part as follows: "You are no doubt
aware that the contractors have had
a heavy loss on the contract, owing
largely to the Insufficient and defective plane and specifications supplied
by tbe engineer for the city."
The solicitors also requested that
the council take the necessary action
towards bringing about a fair adjustment of the amount claimed,
The city engineer stated in a report that he had been unableto make
a settlement with the company exoept
so far as some minor details were concerned. He had requested the company to supply an Itemized account;
which, it was alleged, they objected to.
Mayor Lee declared that tbe claims
made were absolutely unreasonable
and consisted chiefly of bald statements as to bow much the city should
The council coincided with the
mayor's views and the matter was referred to the old Arena building com.
mittee to arrange for an arbitration
Though It was n^t disclosed at the
council meeting it is alleged In private circles that'*; the company, in
view of the city's refusal tp pay up
as suggested, locked the door cf the

The new central office ot the company had just been completed and lt
was stated $30,000 worth of material had been ordered for outside
Assurance was given that as soon as
tbe latter arrived the extension work
throughout the city would be rushed
to completion.
A petition was received from 120
Sapperton ratepayers requesting that
a flre hall be established further up
the big hill than tbe present one. The
necessity for this. It was stated, was
demonstrated by the recent fire in
Mr. Sanders' house. The petition was
referred to the flre committee to report.
Writing, In view of the fact that
seWers were about to be laid on Bon
nette street, a resident on Allen
street drew attention to the fact that
the property all along the latter
thoroughfare was alao. badly ln need
of similar facilities. Ths letter was
filsd for reference.

The chief result Is that the Metropolitan police are nearing the ragged

But they have evolved their militant campaign from an effort to attract attention to their cauBe Into a

in tne l)anl*h Parliament a bill extending the franchise to women Is
likely to become law in the near future. The English suffragettes will
find in this another proof of the perfidy of British political leaders in refusing to let the suffrage question

But aB a corollary of their enfranchisement the Danish women propose

They would have Danish girls trained

We are glad to note that very satisfactory progress is
being made in the provision for harbor development in the
city. As our readers are aware the work entailed by the
development of Front street and the extension of the
wharves is to be done by day labor, and in a very short
time now actual operations will commence.
Two weeks ago we called attention to the full recognition given by the minister of public works to the praiseworthy initiative of the city council in launching a scheme
of harbor development and of the spirit of the citizens in
backing up this body by voting half a million dollars for
that purpose. Hon. Robert Rogers, at the same time,
pointed out that for ocean-going terminals New Westminster has an immense advantage over Victoria and Vancouver on account of its public-owned waterfront and the
benefits of fresh water.
We hear a great deal these days of the elaborate provision made by the government for the two ports named
above, and we trust that in the immediate future New
Westminster will not be overlooked. Our harbor enterprises to date are the product of the initiative of the citizens of Westminster themselves, and, while our representative men may not boast quite as loudly of what they are
going to do as some others on the coast, the citizens may
be assured that the work is going forward as swiftly as
But the harbor scheme as it affects the city proper is
not all that is being held in view at the present time, for
throughout it has been recognized by its advocates that
the development of the Fraser is not local only nor confined to any one place. Any true scheme of harbor development here must necessarily affect the entire peninsula;

In this way only can the greatest benefit accrue, not|*a���<^
merely to this city, but to all the interests on the peninsula, to Vancouver, South Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam and New Westminster. As we have
pointed out the authority of the minister of public work?
should be unassailable, and, based on that authority, it is
an incontrovertible fact that upon the Fraser and its
branches there is a better chance offered for the cheap development of industries and wharfage accommodation
than can be put forward by any other port in British Columbia.
There are two private bills affecting the Fraser to be
adjudicated upon during this session of the Dominion
parliament, one from the city and another from interests
upon the North Arm. We believe that the time has come
for that wider vision which shall recognize that the control of the Fraser and its waterways must be vested in
one supreme body to ensure the best results.
The worth of the Fraser has already been recognized
at Ottawa, and we trust that the interest of Ottawa will u��� jm,���, ���.,,,. nr ,���������,, r.rnmlinP

very well happen that the Dominion Government will give
further proof of its appreciation of conditions here by accelerating the passage of a bill which shall constitute one
harbor authority for the Fraser by means of a public
measure in the same way that the bill for Vancouver's
harbor development project is coming before the

Resignations   In   Canadian   Political
Life Are Not Common.
The Kon. F. D. Monk's resignation
lr->m Mr. Borden's Cabinet stands out
as probably the most clearly-marked
instance of resignation from motives
of principle, as distinguished from
pique or expediency, which the political anna's of Canada aff, rd.
Indeed, relignations of any kind are
comparatively rare iu tha history of
Canadian Cabinets. In thn year 1364,
George Brown snd Sir John A. Macdonald were instrumental iu forming
�� coalition Government for the old
Province of Canada for tl.e main purpose of carrying Confederation. But
a year or two after its formation the
former resigned from it, istcnsibly on
neeount of some difference with the
Government relative to the question
of reciprocity. But there wns a pretty genersl ides that he wanted to get
out ��� largely because he did not get
on with Macdonald. A little later,
Sir A. T. Gait resigned from the same
Government, on the ground thst lie
could not sgrec sith its educational
policy, which, in his view, did not
sufficiently safeguard the Protestant
minority in Quebec. Sir A. T. Gait,
in fact, was something of a Quebec
Ulsterman. In 1867, he rejoined tbe
Mscdnnal.1 Government. But tho fever
of resignation seems to have run in
hii blood. For, a few months 1 '.er,
he again resigned, retiring from his
offlce of Minister of Finance on account of a difference of or inion with
the Government ns to the proper mode
of dealing with the Commercial Bank,
whicii had failed. Altogether, this
worthy knight seems to h-ve been a
man of very considerable independence. When he accepted liis knighthood from thi crown, he wns careful
to stipulate that such acceptance
should not lie held to prejudice his
giving expression to his view that
Canada's future destiny ley in the direction of complete independence. And
in this stipulation the British Government of tba day acquiesced.
Another resignation ��,n a question
of principle was that of Mr. Clarke
Wallace, who, not very long before
the lirst Laurier Administration cams
into power, resigned from thc Conservative Government. As a steadfast
Orangeman, he refused to approve of
the remedial order requiring the Province of Manitoba to restore Separate
Schools. Shortly after seven other
members of the same Government,
"the nest of traitors,'" resigned, including the Hon. George E. F>ster.
But in their esse it was tactics, rath-
er than principle, whicl underlny
their action. They professed not to
have complete confldenoe in Sir Mackensie Bowell, An being the strongest
man for the position of Conservative
leader, and in consequence of their
action Sir Charles Tupger superseded
him. The Hon. Clifford Sifton resinned from Sir Wilfrid Laurier's Cabinet
in the year 1905 on the ground that
he differed from its policy, as regards
the educational clsuses in the bill |
���"resting the autonomous Provinces ofj
Alberts and Saskatchewan. A year or \
wo hefore thnt. Mr. Blair resigned
rem the Liberal Government because
as considered its legislator too favorable to the Grand Trunk Pacific Rail-
ray, and it was also,understood that
he went further In the direction of
frftroring public ownership than did
ths Government, as a whole, at thnt
tiihe. Mr. Tarte's resignation in 1902
"TBS stated to be due to differences
ivtth his colleagues with regard to the
tariff. But it was generally believed
that he was ordered to resign because
he hsd been tslking too loudly.

Step Right Up snd Pick Out ths Birth

For the man or woman born in Jan-
nary the proper birth stone is the garnet. Among the attributes claimed (or
it in olden days waa tlie power of
fringing sleep to those subject to insomnia. It stood tiio for riches, honor, great wisdom, constancy, fidelity
in every engagement and drove away
the plague and evil spirits. The amethyst ia for February. The ancient
Romans believed that he or she whi

the.diamond, the most sought alter
gem in nil the world. The Rnmsns believed thst it a diamond were worn on

skin  it made  tliem   fearless.
For May the accepted gem is the
emerald. This gem discovers false
friends and  insures true love.
For June i.s the pearl, the queen nf
all gems. The olden Chinese used
them as medicine for diseases of tin
blood. Cleopatra, in order to show
her contempt for money, nnd to outshine others in her lavish wastefulness in those days of oriental splendor, tore off one of her magnificent
large pearl earrings, dissolved and
swallowed it. That pair of pearls was
said to bo worth nt thnt time $800,000.
Perhaps the present vnlue would \>e
$2,000,000. The Ilomans wore iiearls,
even on their shoes.
For July is the glowing rub or red
sapphire, whicii denotes luve or a loving disposition. For August is tits
sardonyx whicii insures long lite,

to depart.

Toronto, Dec. 30. ��� The Toronto
World asks: Are the banks of Canada
loaning too much money to their
directors, and to firms in which thej
are partners ?
This is the question of a correspondent writing in criticism of the
Bank Act Introduced at Ottawa recently by the Minister of Finance. He
says ln his letter that there Is one column ln the monthly statement of the
chartered banks to the Dominion Government whicb always arrests hls attention. It Is that headed "Aggregate
amount of loans to directors and
firms of which they are partners."
In the statement for October last he
notes that there are two banks which
show over one million dollars each in
the column above mentioned, and that
there are other banks ln practically
the same position. One of tbe Institutions which shows over a million
dollars loaned to directors has a paid-
up capital of only five millions, so
that ihle particular bank has loaned
more than one-fifth of Its capital to
the men ln control.
Is This Principle   Wrong?
"Isn't this a wrong principle?" asu
the correspondent. It depends on the
point of view. Certainly the practice
Is within the law at present, and there
Is nothing In the new act to change
the situation. Bankers and mercbanU
of Toronto are not agreed on the
question. Some think the directors
have a perfect right to borrow all the
money they need, on good security;
others take tbe position that by doing
so directors are open to the accusation of using their position fcr personal profit.
The general manager of one of the
largest banks said thla morning that
be agreed with the correspondent's
"1 tblnk the directors of banks,
when they need money, should borrow outside their own Institutions. It
may be all right for them to have the
money, but what will the public think
when It observes that a considerable
percentage of a bank's business ls
with Its own controlling Interest?
From a sentimental standpoint, il
from no other, directors should exercise great care as to how they borrow
from their own banks. Suppose a director should ask for a loan wbich the
general manager, iu fairness to the
shareholders, must refuse? The situation would become drained at once,
and might easily become untenable..
May  Need Regulation.
"1 don't think this Is a matter which
the government needs to regulate, but
such a step might become necessary lf
banks become too careless In loaning
to directors. 1 know of men here In
Toronto who borrow In Montreal
rather than ask favors ot the local Institutions In which they are directors.
They are on the safe side and wlll
never subject their associates to public condemnation."
Other bankers Bald that the tact of
a bank's loaning one-fifth of Its paid-
in capital to directors appears more
serious to the uninformed than lt
really Is.
"A Canadian bank's capital doesn't
bear the same relation to its total resources thst a United States' bank's
capital does," one explained. "A bank
may have a capital of only $6,000,000
and a surplus reserve of many times
that sum. One-fifth of the capital may
be only a very small percentage of the
total resources."
Should Loans Ss Limited.
. The strongest opposition  to banks
loaning large sums to directors oomes
from merchants snd others wbo sometimes find lt difficult to secure the accommodation they require,   even  on
good security.   Some of them pointed
out today that the United States Government prohibits banks from loaning
to any borrower, whether   by overdraft or discount, more than 10 per
oent of an Institution's paid-up capital, and any violation subjects ths offending  bank  to immediate   suspension.   The smount, therefore, loaned
to any director must be governed by
the same law affecting all other cus
tomers of the bank.
For Foreign  Enterprises.
One critic declares that the returns
of banks to the Finance Department
often fall to disclose the true condition of affairs.
Mr. Peter Rysn says: "There's an
amount set down in tbe returns under
the head of 'Loans outside ot Canada.' This ls sU right as far as lt
goes, but the new set should contain
an amendment much desired, which ls
thst the banks sbsll furnish a return
showing how much money ls under
loan or discount or overdraft to men
and firms In Canada, but which Is
notoriously for ths prosecution snd
development of foreign enterprises.
The publlc should know this feature,
since there's a very common suspicion
'on the street' that some of ths msn
Inside Uf business are not altogether
clear of very delicate oonnestlons

It is surprising to find an
otherwise hard-headed business man who takes strange,
abnormal joy as posing as a
freak. He dosen't call it
that, of course. He doesn't
even know he is posing. Ponderously in earnest he would
not dream of describing his
business as "freakish"���but
delights in saying it is
"unique" ��� which really
amounts to the same thing.
Some manufacturers play
"ireak" only when talking
to an advertising man.
They keep tnat word
"unique" tucked back under
the tongue all ready for use
whenever anyone suggests
that they should advertise.
"Oh' my business is unique

Pittsburg, Dec. 30.-Cards have
been issued by Mrs. Charles Whitney
or Boston, announcing the engagement
of her son, Geofrey W. Whitney, a
broker, to Alice Cornelia Thaw, formerly the Countess of Yarmouth, anc!
known since her divorce from her hue-
band as Mrs. Alice Copley Thaw.
The date for the wedding haB not
been set, but It    probably will take
place in the spring.    The fiancee of
Whitney Is the daughter of Mrs. William Thaw, and a sister of Harry K.
Thaw.    She opened her new home In
i Washington   recently   but   will   spend I
I the  holidays   wilh   her   mother   here,
when arrangements will be made for
;the weddingB, which will be one of the
'*. moBt fashionable here ln recent years.
I     As   Countess    of     Yarmouth   Alice
j Thaw had an unhappy lite.    The earl
was of a roving disposition and at different times was on the stage ln Aur,
tralia and this country.    He was an
acknowledged fortune hunter and de
sired to marry  MIbb Elizabeth Thaw
before he transferred his affectlonB tj
her younger sister.
When the countess' brother, Harry
K. Thaw, shot Stanford White, thr
notoriety greatly anifoyed her father-
in-law, the MarqulB of Hertford, nnd
when she came here to attend the trial
it became known that the marriage
would be annulled.
Harry Thaw had refused to attend
the wedding of hls sister to the earl,
on whom lt was said the Thaws settled $1,000,000.
When the countess returned to this
country after the annulment she was
cordially received. Since that time
she has heen abroad a great deal. Her
former husband returned to the stage
for a while after they separated.

How You Win with Cash
THE money-making faculty will not prevail if there is not behind
it  the  money-saving instinct.
You must buy for cash if you would always have cash. Credit is
expensive. Every credit store gives a cash discount to cash buyers,
but that discount docs not equal thc net price of the one-price and
cash-only store.    Wc know.
Thc credit buyer is kept poor because he ia always paying more for
his clothes than he who pays cash.    In one year, his excess fine foe  iqi

Skulls were used for balls and thc
bones of animals for pins In those

earliest times, and wss introduced into the American colonies by the English and Dutch settlers. Twice at
least it -became bo popular among the
young men that It was outlawed.
In the twelfth century ln England

the rising generation that a Btatut.
was directed against. The same condition prevailed later at New Amsterdam, and Peter Stuyveaant, the Dutch
governor, prohibited the playing ofthe
game on penalty of being pi'aced in
the stocks for not less than 24 hours.
This official prohibition was directed
specifically against the game of nine

to a modern corporation lawyer,
promptly added another pin to the set
up, and bo originated the mode.n
contest-of tenphts. Following the flrs'
match oontcst In New York. 1840, tht
game gradually spread over the Unite
States and Canada.
Abraham Lincoln was one of the enthusiasts ot the bowling game, and
his scores are still preserved at Wash

60.000 bowling alleys ln .the United

tlon would be advantageous to them
in that certain powers���Austria and
Italy���could not be considered as disinterested arbitrators.
Tbe Turkish design In presenting
counter proposals which left an enormous gulf between them and the
allies' proposals was to create a situation In which mediation would appear Justifiable���even necessary.
Their argument is that never has a
mediator given a verdict entirely favorable to one side, without compensation to tbe other.
And the capital argument remains
that whatever Turkey would be forced
to cede, her Mussulman population,
particularly the semi-barbarous tribes
of Arabia and Anatolia, would swallow the bitter pill with fewer grimaces
if convinced lt was administered by a
coalition of Europe.
In tbe camp of the allies the proposal for mediation has been received with varying degrees ot dissatisfaction. All are agreed that mediation would be possible of acceptance
only if the authority entrusted to the
mediators were of such limits that It
would be impossible to deprive the
victors of rightful conquests; that it
must be mediation taking into account
tbe present status of tbe belligerents,
not the ante-bellum status, and, above
all, that lt must be mediation���not arbitration.
Arbitration, it Ib pointed out, was
possible before the conflict, not afterwards, unless ln questions of detail
such as the delimitation of frontiers
not well defined by ethnographical
Servla and Montenegro are most dissatisfied ot all, In the belief that It
wlll be impossible to obtain Impartial
mediation by the powers, which Include Austria, a nation which shows
a threatening attitude against what
these states assert Is a legitimate aspiration.
Austria, according to them, virtually can be considered an interested
party, as she has proclaimed the Inviolability of Albania, forcing the Servians and Montenegrins to abandon
the Adriatic coast, and haa declared
the necessity of extending the frontiers of Albania for the sole purpose
of depriving Servla and Montenegro
of territories they have conquered.
Concluding that Austria does not
wish to renounce her traditional po
licy of expansion ln the Balkans with
the object of reaching the Aegean
Sea, can she, the allies ssk, be con-j
sidei ed an impartial judge In a case I
n which her vital Interests may be
'urthcred or endangered?
The allies also fear Italian aspirations. Italy has protested against the
occupation by Greece of the Island of
Sascno, at the entrance of the Gull
of Avlona. This attitude the administration at Athens has considered as
ofensive, asserting that Saseno is Included in the Ionian Islands Uken
from France by Grest Britain ln 1800
and ceded to Greece in 18S4. Csn
Italy also he trusted to give an impartial judgment, asks Greece.
Bulgsrla's attitude hss not been determined- Dr. Daneff, ohlef of the
Bulgarian plenipotentiaries, appeared
hopeful tonight but ssld nothing pos
slble could be outlined until Turkey
presented her demands in well de-
ined form. '���**
Rumors that Turkey has concluded
s loss of many million* are unt->,��.
Tentative proposals la this direction
hsve met with the reply that Turkey
must first conclude peace if she desires to secure money.

The Pren.rlent ot the IV.nl.. Sir It. Montagu Allan, waa aaked to Uke the chair, and Ur. J. M. Kllbourn wu appointed secretary
to  the meeting.    Ihe Retire calling ttie uncling  wna read.
The miim-.ea of the  lat  annual meeting  were  .trnu-titnl anil taken aa read.
The President then read the annual report of the Directors as follows:
"I beg to submit the Animal Report of the Directors and the Proiit and Loas and General Statement
of the Bank covering operations lor the past twelve months.
"On an average paid-up Capital of $6,498,;I32, tbere has been earned the sum of $1,338,844.62.
Adding tbe ualance brought forward from last year, there la still $1,397,722.80 to be disposed of. This has
been dealt with as follows:��� Dividend of lu'/, on the paid-up Capital, $649,004; written off Bank Premises, $100,000; contributed to tl.e Officers' Pension Fund, $50,000, and added to Reserve Fund, $450,000,
enabling us to tarry forward $ns,', l.s.27 iu the Profit and Loss Account. Your Directors consider tbls s
favourable showing.
"Our Reserve Fund this year has been further augmented by the premium on new stock (issued
at 175) amounting to $560,760, bringing it up to $6,410,760, or a fraction over 95% of tbe paid-up Capital.
"During the past year we have opened   ofli.es at the following points, viz: ���
"ln Alberta: Delburiic. Alherta Avenue (Edmonton), Hanna, Hughenden, Redcllff, and Walsb; in
Saskatchewan: Battleford; In Ontario: Brantford. Guelph, and Walkerville; In Quebec: Centre Street
(Montreal) and St. .lovlte.
"We have not closed any agencies.   All thc offices of the Bank have been inspected during the year.
"During the year we hnve lost two of our esteemed Directors, one by deatli and one by retirement,
���Mr. Charles M. Hays, whose death we greatly deplored and whose loss was national, and. later on
ln the year, our valued colleague, Mr. Jonathan Hodgson, resigned, on account of advanced age. Mr.
Hodgson has served on the Board of this Pank for over thirty-five years, and his advice at the Board's
councils was very highly esteemed. During the last ten years he was our Vice-President. We hope Mr.
Hodgson, in retirement, may enjoy many years yet of health and happiness.
"These vacancies ou the Board have been Bhed by the appointment of Messrs. Andrsw J. Dswes
and F. Howard Wilson.
"Your Directors and tbe General Manager hnve bad under consideration for aome time the advisability of asking your permission to change the termination of the financial year from the 30th November to the 30th April, as the general conditions in this country, ln the Spring, are not so congested as
In the Autumn, when the pressure on the resources of Canadian Banks Is at tts height. With this end tn
view, an amendment to the,By-Law will be submitted for your consideration, changing the end of the financial year to the 30th April, and changing the date of the Annual Meeting from the third Wednesday
ln the month of December to the third Wednesday In the month of May.
"The Board of Directors of the Bank has hitherto consisted of nine members, and wo have decldcJ
to ask you to Increase the number to twelve. The necessary change in the By-Law will be submitted to
you for your assent.
"Another By-Law Increasing; the amount of the Directors' remuneration to $25,000 per annum, wlll
also be submitted lo you.
"Supplementing tbls report, 1 would like to say I visited most of the Western Branches during
the past summer, accompanied by the Vl.e-Presldent and Mr. Long, where we acquired'a great deal of
additional information bearing upon our business and met a great many of the customers of the Bank
and the staff. I may say that the trip was full of Instruction and we returned wltb a very much better
knowledge of nr.d acquaintance wilh your extensive Interests ln tbe West than we bave hod heretofore. We
think we are safe in sayii.g li.at tl.e business of the Hank Is on a sound basis throughout the country.
We were impressed with thu fact that lbe Bank is Well represented at all points, and the business Is
being capably handled.
"We have mucb pleasure In testifying to the continued excellent work ot thc stall In recognition.of
which, aud In view of the satisfactory results of the business for the past year and the strong representations of the General Manager, the Board have decided to depart from t.ie policy '.ltherto followed
and have granted a bonus to tbe siaff.
"All of which  Is respectfully submitted. " H.   MONTAGU ALLAN, PreidMt

"Arthur carried his tenm tbrough all

wben tbe two colleges whleb were to

"The afternoon late lo November,
tbat the game wa* played waa bright
nnd the air crisp. Just tbe condition*
for a trial of physical strength snd
skill. When our boya went out on to
tbe fleld a great shout arose from the
spectators, for sli sympathized wltb a
college comprising but a thousand student* mstcbed agalnat ons comprising
several thousand. I could see Arthur,
standing s bead above bis fellows.
Indeed, before tbe kirknff be came
very near wbere 1 sat and wsved his
bsnd to me. He looked ss well sa 1
had ever seen him. snd when 1 smiled
st him I could see that It affected him
like aome Invigorating draft.
"Wblle the bsll wns In plsy st s

"Our tesm wss certainly a wonder
for so amall a college snd from tbe
very beginning gave IU opponent*
all tbey could do tn prevent our hoys
from scoring, to say nothing of scoring themselves. Indeed, neither side
acored during tbe early part of tbe
struggle. But Juat before tbe flrst rest
Ysle made a touchdown. Soon after
tbi* henry, wintry clouds changed tbe
face of tbe day. sud since tbe game
bad begun at a lute hour It waa difficult for the spectator* to see what
ws* going on on the field. A fierce
tussle wss In progress for the ball
wben everything suddenly stopped. I
knew tbut sn accident bnd occurred
uud wa* quite mire aome one waa belug carried off tbe gridiron. But so
many person* Intervened between me

see little of what was taking place.
"A cblll. whether from the overhanging clouds or tbe accident, seemed
fu sweep acroes tbe fleld like a breeze

recommenced. Rut by tbi* time li
