That tbe future of tbe Bouad-  atv country is not limited entirely  and simply to the wages coming  directly as wages from the mining and smelting companies but  tbere_is every prospect of subsidiary enterprises to the greater  industry springing up steadily and  having the mating of a good and  varied business community here  is a point often forgotten and illustrated prettv well by the work  being done at the present time by  local -works. ." Such industries  springing up in. the very centre  of the mining industry of British  Columbia will attract business  from over the entire southern portion *of the Province.  At the local foundry pf the  Nelson Iron Works two mortarp  weighing 7,500 lbs. each,*1 for a  10-stamp mill at the Queers mine  at Salmo are being cast and *wil!  be shipped early next week. This  is the'largest and heaviest casting  that has ever>een made in : this  ���part: of. the country, the Greenwood foundry being fiitted to do  heavier work than even the. Nel-  -sen shop can do.

The presentation was  made at the home of Judge  Brown. To Mr. & Mrs. Parker,  the ladies gave a very tasty silver  cream jug and sugar bowl and to  Mr. & Mj*s. Eising a silver bonbon dish. Judge Brown aud Mrs.  Fleming, the president ot the society made the presentations. The  church will miss very much the  work of both Mr; & Mrs. Parker  and Mr. & Mrs. Rising, as they  have been active in almost every  branch of the church's activities.  Their many friends in Greenwood  However will wish them success  in their new ventures at the coast  where Mr. Parker will have  charge of the construction work  of a real estate syndicate and Mr.  Rising will follow his business of  an accountant.

The dividing line referred to in  tbe above communication, the  120th parallel, cuts this country,  near Keremeos. All east of Keremeos will be included in the late  season.  The open season for fishing  commenced on Wednesday last.  It is to be hoped, however, that  local fishermen will have enough  interest in tbe laudable purpose*  of the Fish and Game Assaciation  to refrain from fishing in Bouudary Creek until after high water.  This one of the things that test  the decency of a man. No man  without some consideration for  the general interest as well as  his own, is a desirable citizen.  Don't be an undesirable.  WHAT ABOUT  DISCRIMINATION  Board of Trade Takes Up  Discrimination. in Freight  Rates Against Canadian  Points-Council  is Elected.  Mother Lode Grade  The engineer in charge of the  Mother Lode grading work, Mr.  C. S. Moss, of Nelson, stated on  Monday last that all the tenders  for this work were in and were  being examined by the engineers  at Vancouver and Winnipeg. As  soon as "they are returned, Mr.  Moss expects that work will be  started on the grade. That will  be in the course of a week or ten  days.  High Thoughts for Young Men.  "Which is preferable, a clean  cross wife or a good natured  dirty one," was the height to  which, the Young Men's Club  of St. Columba's church rose  at their last meeting. It is urged  that young meu will talk on these  subjects more than others, -hence  the choice. As for the. decision  it is giyen to us as follows, ".As  all women wera more or less  cranky, a "clean wife was after al!  more desirable." It was touch  and go however, the good natured woman finding many ardent  admirers. Next Thursday tbe  club takes up a really serious subject, Resolved that conditions in  the East are more favorable to  success in life thau in the West.  The Board of Trade .held its  regular meeting on Monday night  last in the upper room at the Citv  Hall and there were twenty-one  of the forty members there. President Warren in the chair.  A "Constitution and Bv-laws  prepared in accordance with the  Bords of Trade Act by Mr. J. P.  McLeod was read clause by clause  and passed. The monthly general meeting was fixed for the second Wednesday in each month.  The annual meeting in accordance  with the Act is fixed for the  meeting. By-laws also call for a  council of nine members and the  following five names were added:  Messrs. W; T. Hunter, J. E. McAllister Duncan Mcintosh, J. 1?.  McLeod and C. J. Wilson.  The President and Vice-President were sworn in bv the Mayor,  this also being required by the  Act.  The Secretary reported considerable correspondence among  which was a letter from the e*en-  eral passehe-er ao-entof the Great  Northern Railway askine for a  further supply of the pamphlet.  "Brief Statement of Facts About  che Boundary," issued bv the  Board of Trade last July. Vice-  president Russell suggested that  some inaccuracies in this brief  statement should be corrected and  a discussion followed, the upshot  of it all being the appointment  of a publicity committee composed of Messrs. McLaine, Mcintosh,  Beattie and Macfarlane. The intention seemed to , be that this  committee should g-atber information systematically about the  Boundary aud see that Greenwood  had her p1ace kept in the various  newspapers of the Province.  A case of what looks very much  like malicious dsscrimination by  the Great N6rthern against Canadian points as compared with  United States and Washington  poitlts was reported to the Board.  No satisfaction could be obtained  from the Claim's Department of  the railway. Au overcharge  claim sent to that oflice in October had elicited no response as yet.  Freight from Myncaster to Midway was 11 and 7 cents and from  Myncaster to Ferry, two hundred  yard's distant 8 and 5 cents. It  was suggested that a memorandum be prepared, illustrating this  and other cases in point and forwarded to Mr. W. W. Broughton  general freight agent at St.Paul,  and failing immediate response  to get into touch with the Railway Commission which would  not stand for discrimination. Other similiar cases being reported  the Secretary was instructed to  communicate with Mr.Broughton  Mrs. J. p, Flood who was with  Mrs. Eeesc at the end, told him  that life had gone. Mrs. Flood  went south last fall and has been  living with Mrs. Reese and the  three children. Arrangements  have been made to bring the body  home for burial. Mrs. Reese has  been a resident of. Greenwood  from its early days, although she  was a uative of New Brunswick.  Mr. Reese has the sympathy of  very many friends in tbe Boundary  in-his bereavement.  The Findlay Find.  Death of Mrs. Reese.  Word from Los Angeles, Cal.,  on Sunday last conveyed the intelligence of the death of Mrs. King  Reese who went there from Greenwood last July in order to find relief from tubercular trouble, Mr.  Reese had received a telegram on  Saturday telling him that her  condition was very serious and  had gone as far as Spokane, when  a further message from his sister,  Geo. McKenzie, of Hazleton.  B.C., who has been visiting his  brother, Kenneth McKenzie and  his sister here on his return trip  from Nova Scotia, and left last  week for Vancouver, leaves that  city next Thursday (April 2nd)  for tbe North. Writing from Vanr  couver of the Findlay riyer reports  he says that one.man he had seen  who had been in there since '98  and who had just come out said"  that while it was a good country  there were no discoveries sufficient  to warrant the stories in circulation. A good many people were  going in but they could not get  past Hazleton as the trail from  there into Findlay was impassable and there were no supplies  at Hazleton. The river will not  be open till about the middle of  April. Mr. McKenzie who, it  will be remembered started, the  Beaverdell stage-line has been up  north uow about four years and  is taking in a stage outfit from  Vancouver. He will run a-stage  line this summer from Hazleton to  Aldermere.   '': ^'w" "��� y-^y--''''^ "'"*.  Bereavement of Mr. Fair. .  Word was received in Greenwood this week of the death of  the mother of Mr. Charles Fair  at Collingwood. Her death oc  curred 6ti Sunday last, Mr. Fair  having reached Collingwood a few  days before. It is understood that  after Mr. Fair had reached Collingwood, he went immediately  to his mother's hou3e but on returning to his brother's residence,  himself was taken ill'aud was unable either to visit his mother  again before ber decease or to attend her funeral. Very widespread sympathy will be felt for  Mr. Fair iu his bereavement.  Mr- Nadtn's New Venture  The current issue of the B.C.  Gazette contains the registration  of the " G. R. Naden Company,  Limited," with a capital of $50,-  000, divided into five hundred  shares of one hundred dollars  each, The compauy is to carry  on a general financial, insurance,  real estate, banking and brokerage business and will be located  at Prince Rupert sometime during  the coming summer. Tlie provisional directors are H. T. Ceperlj*,  F. W. Rounsfell, C. S. Stirrett  and II S Vaughan,of Vaucouver.  with G. R. Naden, M.P.P., cf  Greenwood, as maua ing director  Iu Holv Trinity Church, Grand  Forks there were married on  Tuesday morning last,two Greenwood people, Mrs. Ada L. Ber-  narrd,late proprietress of the Commercial hotel, and Charles H.  Towns. Tlit* ceremony was performed by the Rector of the  church, R��v. Henry Steele, at ten  o'clock in the forenoon, and Mr.  & Mrs. Towns left the same day*  on the Great Northern train for  Spokane and other places. The  wedding was private. Friends of  the contracting parties in town  will wish the.n a very happy future.

[MINING   1  ���#��*��'��� o*������*i��( ��ir������**(<H5��-��o-��*  The Crescent has a car-load of  high grade ore ready tor shipment. Snow in the draws still  prevents transportation. The  Crescent has in operation the  most complete equipment of its  size in a high-grade mine in British Columbia.  Rossland seems to be furnishing  the great diversion of Southern  B. C. just now. The sotfth-belt  revival continues with the result  that a good many of the old properties will be thoroughly prospected as soon as the snow goes.  The richest car of copper matte  ever shipped frpm British Columbia was s<mt from the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company's smelter at Trail last week  to tne Tacoma Refinery. Tbe  car was worth a little more than  $32,000, and contained 41 percent  copper, 35 ounces of silver and 45  ounces of gold to the ton. The  company is shipping about 15  cars of matte a month. The shipments are attributed to high-  grade of ore being taken from the  lower levels of the War Eagle,  which carries from two to three  ounces of gold. The company is  preparing to increase the shipments from the War Eagk" and  Centre Star by about 100 tons  daily, bringing thedaily tonnage  from these two properties to be- .  tween 500 and 600 tons.  Duncan Ross ttie Choice  The Liberals of the Dominion  constituency of Yale-Cariboo will  meet in convention at Vernon on  April 14 for the purpose of nominating their candidate for the  coming campaign.

But on the whole because  of the immense prosperity of the  past ten years, Canada's recuperative power is not being very sorely taxed by these demand-- and  everywhere the signs of the returning tide are forcing themselves on our attention. The dev-  opment of the country is everywhere going ahead and this year  will see au activity in railn*d  building, and in trade generally  that will surprise the pessimist.  The best credential any city  can have is the enthusiasm of its  people. Show your confidence in  the town by keeping��your enthusiasm at high tide.  The largest surplus of revenue  over all expenditure on Consolidated Fuud account, ever reported to a Canadian parliament is  what finance Minister Fielding  was able to show in his budget  last week at Ottawa.  portahce have stopped payments,  these being Canadian Oil, Consolidated Mining, and Granby,while  one, Canadian General Electric,  has made a reduction.

Wills, manager of the  Royal Alexandra Hotel, Winnipeg, well known to the travelling  public all over the western provinces.and a real good friend to  many a young' newspaper man  attempting to attack some Austrian count at his big hotel was  married last Thursday at -Vane-:liver to Mis-3 Pearl Girard, of  Louisville, Ky. The bride is of  old Kentucky family and formerly played a leading role in the  Virginian.  lect this bruise turned to an ulcerated  or burning-sore which caused me a  great deal of suffering: I tried a great  number of doctors, and was in the hospital four limes. I tried almost every-;  thing, but nothing did ine any good, I  could uot sleep at night with the scalding and burning pain, but f rom th e  first application of Zam-Buk I never  lost any sleep, and felt nothing more  of it than if I hadn't had any sore a! all  It started healing and gave me no further trouble.

It is early to talk about  crop prospects, but the acerage  under the plow this year will show  a large increase over last year.  The total trade of Canada in  1897 was $257,168,862; in 1907 it  was $617,864,952. From 1886 to  ,i896,the trade of Canada increased fifty millions or five millions a  year. Last year the increase was  sixty seven millions.  The Canadian Pacific Railway  could this last year borrow $10,-  000,000 at a shade less than four  per cent. The Government itself  pavs a little more than three per  cent, and by way of comparison  the New York Central is' paying  a bit more than five per cent.  Speaks well for Canadian conditions.  In varumsquarters, there seems  almost to be an  effort to impress  ou tho dull imaginations of reasonable people that Canada   as   a  whole is in the grip   of   what  is  known as "hard   times."    Those  parts of Canada which  are   most  closely affected or wholly dependent on some industry relying   for  tbe consumption of its product entirely on Uuited   States demand,  are, of course,   seriously  affected  by the business depression   tliere  generally accompanying a  Presidential   election, and   intensified  tbis year by a reaction from   tbe  extreme activity of   an especially  prosperous period.    But it is certainly not out of   place   in   communities so affected to  remember  tbat Canada as a   whole does not  show anything like the  business  depression current across the border.    It is on the other hand useless to assert that   the   wave   of  supreme prosperity is still sv/eep-  ing over Canada as it did  two or  four years ago. Theharvestof last  **var was poor, consequently prices rose to aa unusual extent  and  m-iny industries  were   inconvenienced by the increase in the cost  of supplies.    Iu the   West a ram  ��� pant gamble in real estate had its,  The statement presented at the  seventy-second     yearly    general  meeting of the Bank   of   British  North America shojwed that  interest-bearing   deposits  actually  increased as  compared with  the  previous   year,   notwithstanding  the "money stringency."    ln  an  unusually interesting report, published in full elsewhere. Mr. E. A..  Hoare, the chairman of the bank,  refers to- the   adverse   criticism  that has been vewted upon Canadian banks because they lend cal'  money at New York. That money  is lent to act as a reserve in case of  a crisis, as it could easily be witl -  drawn in case it was  wanted   in  Canada.   Mr. Hoare says: ''There  is oue statement frequently made,  .both in tbis country and Canada,  and repeated openly in the press,  to the effect that Canadian banks  were greatly   hampered   because  their resources are so largely employed in New York.      Speaking  for ourselves alone, I am glad of  the opportunity of most definitely  correcting   this  statement.    We  employ part of our call money in  New York���we have always done  so���and when the   recent   panic  broke out we had a   considerable  sum employed iu this manner.   It  is only due to our many and valued friends with whom we do business in New York to   state  tbat  in   no single   instance   did   this  bank fail to obtain re-payment of  call loans when   we   wanted   the  money."   As regards note issue,  the circulation of   the   bank did  not expand to tbe volume of 1906,  owing   to   the   shortage  of  the  wheat crop.    Mr. Hoare   pays  a  gratifying tribute to Canada and  Canadian finances.  The uew British Supplement to  the London Standard which will  be published with that paper every Friday will have its first issue  on May 22nd. It will pump into  the British people facts about  Cauada. It is expected to have a  large colonial circulation.  In the last five years the C.P.R.  floated id cammon stock and in  bonds about $200,000,000. Yet  on a weak day in the Loudon Exchange last week, C.P.R. stood  firm. Pretty good evidence of  the sound condition of Canada.eh!  The '��� Soo " Common Stock  (Lake Superior Steel Corporation)  is now on a six per cent basis.  The company's profits from June  1, 1907 to Jan, l,1908,show asur-  plus of $526,000. Orders on hand  bulk largely, one single order being from tbe C.P.R. for 50,000 tons  of 85-lb. steel rails. The output  of the "Soo" mills is now 800  tons of steel rails and 500 tons of  pigiron. Ouly a half dozen years  ago all this business was done  outside of Canada.  The operatic and fashionable  event ot next week is the appearance of the Beggar Prince Opera  Company. This is indeed a musical treat for our people. As this  company is so well known, it  would be reiteration to add words  about their ability and reputation.  It suffices to say, however, that a  pervsal of this company will elicit  at once the interest of the theatre  goer.

The seventy-second yearly general  meeting of the Sank of British - North  America was held on Tuesday, March  3rd, at the office of the corporation,  5 Gracechurch Street, E.C., Mr. E. A.

The reserve to which 1 snaii  iefer again, is increased by IM,00\). Deposits snow a ueu-eu.se ot *,Mi,w*l.  This decrease is chk-tly ln tne current  accounts; inieiest-uuai-ing deposits in  Canada actually showed an l.icrease  compared with the pievlous yea-*, iou  are already aware that throughout  the year, and particularly towards the  end of the yeau*. there was a very  keen demand for money in Canada,  and not in Canada alone, but throughout the world, and under these conditions we consider it most satisfactory  that our deposits have held their own  ���so well. In studying the annual reports sent home by our branch managers, I find tlie decline in .deposits  repeatedly  explained    by   the  attrac-  - tlons.of  sound     investments,   which,  - owing to the financial stringency, were'  to be; purchased  at     most L favorable  prices, and also to the opportunities of  lending money in the West upon mortgage at high rates of interest.   ..Notes-  -in circulation ,��how a decrease of  ��87,000. ��� At no, time during 1907 dW  the circulation expand to * the level of  1906, owing to the condition of the harvest in the West, to which'I shall refer later on. Bills, payable and other  liabilities, including provision for contingencies, show a decrease of ��601,000.  This is an Important redtictlon, due  chiefly to the contraction of business  iri the United States during Ootober,  November and December, to which I  shall have to make further reference  later on, On the other side' of the account cash and specie show an increase  of ��219,000. The cash and specie,  amounting to ��1,118,000, was equivalent  to BS per cent, of our ithmedlat-* .��*-  bilitles���that I��. deposits payable oft  demand and note' circulation���a percentage which shows aa unusually  .strong position. Cash at call and abort  notice show a decrease of �� 767,000.  Investments show the following  changes. In the interim balance-  sheet to June 39th you , have already  been informed that the sum of ��6,080.  had been taken from the prof its of the  half-year with the object of writing  down our holding of Consols to 83, at  which figure they now stand in the  balance-sheet. Dominion of Canada  bonds show an Increase of ��12,600, and  now stand at ��157,000, with 97 as the  book cost Other securities have decreased ��15,000, and we: are able to  repeat the statement in the -report of  - June 29th- that - "the book cost Is - lower  than the current market quotation."  The total of the Investments 18-69,000  lower than a year ago. Bllla receivable and loans on security ana other  . accounts show a decrease of ��880,000,  . and /premises, after the transfer of  ��20.000 from 'the profits, show a decrease of ��5,077. The work undertaken on premisea.during the year.has  not yet1 all. been paid for, and' there  is still much to be done before we can  feel satisfied .that our branch- premises have been brought up to thp ra-:  aulred standard.. We can assure yob  that the money thus appropriated 5b  most carefully spent, not for purposes-  of display, but simply to promote the  -���vfnclency of the bank's bustnesB. We  have three branches   at this moment.  which imperatively "demand either new  premises, or suestani.al* extensions of  existing premises, the cost of which,  Apart from the requirements of Central  'lanada and the usual Incidentals at  other branches, will absorb the whole  of this sum, and more. ' .    .    ���  As already stated, by the addition of  ��20,000, the reserve fund has been Increased to ��480,000.- Good progress  has been made in recent yeais in  building up the reserve fund, but still  there is much to be done, and we hope  to be able, year by j-eur, to make substantial additions to it.. As to profits,  again we have the satisfaction of re-  Porting, to you that the bank's busi-  rteos during 1907 has shown satisfactory profits, although just falling short  of the profits earned ln the preceding  year. The actual net profits for 1908  were ��129.016. and for 1907: �� 122.til7,  showing a decrease of ��6.399. We are  still able to repeat exactly the distribution of this time last year by payment of the usual dividend at the rate  of 6 Der cent, per annum, with the  addition of a bonus of 1- per cent..-  making in all 7 per cent, for the.year..  \Ve; again suggest to you that you  should kindly recognize the services  of the staff, of which we cannot speak  too highly, by granting them a bonu��  of 5 per cent... upon their . salaries,  which will absorb about ��4,000/ We  shall then carry forward to the new  account ��24,014, compared with ��19,-  610. at this time last year. Some of  the .changes to which I have referred  are larger than fall within, our usual  experience, and they are chiefly due tn  the great disturbance of credit which  we have-recently witnessed in tlie  United States. . The decline in our  bills payable ls due to this cause alone,  and means that our exchange business  In .New York was completely paralysed  for nearly three months, nor have we  yet seen a return to such conditions,  as to lead us to seek after a large  volume of exchange business, and, in  faot, our bills payable today -show a  further large diminution tsince December 31st. We fully appreciate the  more favorable position of the New  Tori? banks, coupled with the resumption of cash payments since the beginning of the year, but we should feel  more confidence in the future if there  were some' clearer; evidence that the  lessons of the crisis will not be allowed . to pass unheeded,** and, therefore, we continue to act cautiously,  waiting to see what the after-effects'  may be upon the Industry and bommeree of the country/.  It is ho part of my dutv today to Investigate the causes which led to this  finnntJial convulsion ln the TTnltea  States, or to endeavor to award either  censure or- excuse; but this much I  may Bay���that It did not need any unusual degree of sagacity, to foresee  that their financial methods must inevitably lead to danger, and, therefore, in the early.days of 1907 we began to take measures of ''precaution,  which were fully justified by subsequent  events. There was. one statement frequently made, both in this country and  Canada, and repeated openly In the  Press, to the effect that Canadian  hanks were greatly hampered because  their resources were so largely employed In New York: Speaking* for onr--  selves alone, I am. glad of the opportunity of most definitely correcting this  statement. We employ -part of our call  money lh New York���we have always  done so���and when the recent panlo  broke out we had a considerable sum  employed in this manner. It Is only  due to our many and valued friends  with whom we do business In New  York to state that in no single instance, did this bank fall to obtain repayment of call loans when we wanted  the  money.    Naturally, we disturbed  our loans as little as possible, but still  from time to time, ln the ordinary  course of our business, it was necessary to make, calls, and when this occurred the borrowers never, failed to  respond.. In Canada, fortunately, contraction had commenced long before  the tlrirte of trouble in the United  States, a, contraction which was' by no  means voluntary on the part of the  community, but which was' enforced  by the banks. After some years ot  prosperity there had - been the rusual  tendency to advance more rapidly than  even the favorable conditions of the  country' justified, and even before the  end* of 1906 this had Keen evident to  those whose business it: is to preside  over the banking institutions of the  Dominion. The demand for money was  keen before the. close of 1906, and as  the months "parsed ��� oh ��� in 1907 there  \va�� a general stringency felt ln every  department of business. *The resources of the banks throughout ,1907 were  employed up to the limit of safety, and  tliey found It necessary to refuse additional advances, and strictly to*hold  their ' customers within limits . This  was indeed fortunate, for the result  was that when the storm burst, in the.  United States, Canada found herself in  a safe, position. The stringency of  money continued, and even Increased,  with a consequent depreciation in thp  value of. securities and a decided" cneek  to mercantile business; but this condition of affairs did not come to them  (suddenly, and so, - happily, although  the trouble was very .nigh at hand,  the people remained calm and faced  i. the situation with most commendable  pood sense. At no time was there any  trace of panic in Canada. The -banks  did their utmost to supply all the legitimate needs of their customers, and  the customers recognizing the gravity of the situation, reduced their requirements in every possible direction.  The result must be regarded as eminently eati��fa<;t->ry >by all concernel.  and especially by the Dominion Government, which has now seen its banking system, originated with much care  and skill, and subsequently elaborated  ���with' the assistance of the Bankers'  Association, put to a- most severe test,  and emerging from it with complete  success. Th�� occasion may serve to illustrate the value of close and Intimate  consultation 'between the Government  and the Bankers' Association, thu?  working harmoniously together for the  good of the community.  * The wheat crop was a disappointment. Owing to.the length and excessive severity of the winter 1906-7.  the crop was late and consequently exposed to early frost. It was at one  time estimated that, nowithstandlng the  damage thus done to the crop, the results of the season to the farmer would  be as good as In the ptoceonig year,  owing to the greatly enhanced price of  wheat. This hope can no longer bo  entertained, for there Is no doubt that  ln many districts the damage.done by  frost was so extensive that even the  high price ruling for good quaUtia?  could not compensate for the loss  thus sustained. But, notwithstanding  this* disappointment, there is still considerable value in the wheat crop, an-1  disappointment evidently does not  mean discouragement, for it has been  stated recently by the High Commissioner that the' acreage under crop irt  1908 will exceed that of 1907 by no les-  than 1,000.000 acres, and up to the  present time the season has hot-n ��p->r.  arid" favorable. The mineral production of British Columbia for 1907. ac-.  cording to an approximate estimate.  shows an increase of three-quarters of  a million dollars over that of 1906  which must be "considered satlsfnctorv  when lt is remembered .that the Boundary mines were shut down for about  two months. The total value of the  mineral production in the province wa-  $25,730,000, compared with $24,980,000 in  1906. It must be remembered thnt for  the greater part of 1907 the price' 0?  copper, which ls the largest pro-iugt  of the mines, was exceptionally high.  and far above that ruling, today. At  Dawson, however, the production of  ���tjold continued to decline, and in 190"  barely reached $3 000.060, compared  \vlth $5,250,000 in .1906. It is anticipated by- those who know the ca-*ir>  well that when the works of the Yukon Gold Company are completed thi-*  continuous dpoline will he arrested.'  and a large increase, of production wil'  be seen. We hope that these anticipations may be verified, but there hay-  been the inevitable    delays,    and  the  THE   BANK   OF   BRITISH   NORTH   AMERICA.

I Chartered   Ar-r-onntnnbT  great Ditch will not be ready for tbe  ions season. 3 ,  Since December 31st���the- date to  which the accounts are' made up���we  have felt-it our duty to join with the  other leading banks in Canada in giving a guarantee for the Sovereign  Bank, whioh has gone, into liquidation.  We were Invited tb Join In the guarantee on the-extent of $300,000, and  having regard to , the fact that all the  circumstances '. had been carefully  weighed by the leading: banks in Canada and that the proposal to wind  up the Sovereign Bank wa-s approved  by them wtth the best means of information at their disposal, we felt  that it was our duty to join with them  in taking the steps necessary to prevent the suspension of payment. At  the same time we feel that it is-an  open question whether it ls wise for  other banks thus to intervene and  ward off the consequences of unsound  banking. This is the second time  within fifteen months, that we havo  l-.een invited to take our part ln rendering auch assistance, and though we  have consented to do so under guidance fixim strong local opinion, we are  not convinced that suoh action is for  the real good of the country. It appears to us that such, Intervention,  thus repealed, is. sure to weaken the  sense of responsibility- amongst those  who direct and manage banks everywhere, and also that it must tend to  encourage carelessneee ' amongst depositors and the community generally.  And now, before I conclude, you will  expect me to say. a few words re-  spec-ting our future yrospeota; and  this ls the most difficult part of my  task. The Influences whioh we must  -ionslder do not have their origin in  Canada alone, or even principally in  Canada. We have still to consider  the after-effects . of the crisis In the  United States. There are apparently  some on the other side who consider  that, those effects are merely temporary, and that industry and commerce  will suffer no set-back, and although  we do no-t- share this opinion���and the  evidence of decreasing' railway traffics and Increasing failures Is distinctly opposed to it���it may yet be  justified by the strong reoupera/Hve  power shown In the past by that great  country. If, on the other hand, there  follows, as we ourselves expect, a  period of dullness, or. even of depression in trade, In the United States,  this can hardly fall to affect business  In Canada, for the trade relations between the two countries are close and  Intimate. We must, also remember  that trade In European oountries has  certainly passed high-water mark, and  that we have already, entered upon a  period of diminishing activity. In  Canada itself, as I have-already pointed, out; the proceeds of the harvest  are below expectations, and, consequently, there will be les4 money  available for distribution. If these influences shouil-d mean a pause In the  rapid progress of tbe .last few years,  an interval between. the progress of  the past and Its certain resumption in  the future, It will probably be no bad  thing for Canada: - A time for the  municipalities, manufacturers, mer-  i-harits, individuals* and last, but surely not least, for, labour, to examine  Into their position, re-value their a***-  "--els, criticize their expenditure,' and  where necessary, ..uatltute economies,  will be useful, and will serve to build  In the foLundaUona of future progress  nnd prosperity even .more firmly than  ihsy stand at present. But this pro-  e��s may.rawn an \ interval of diminished profits for us all, and. although  we have been able this-year to repeat  tbe bonuses of last year, both to  ���;'iat*e'"older�� and to the staff, we do  not wish any of you to calculate upon  that additional distribution a y��sa*  hence. Wc shall see our way morw  clearly as the months pa.is by and the  prospeots of the harvest develop. -With  G;000,000 acres under the plough in the'  three Central Provinces, as stated by  the High Commissioner, the harvest  nf 1908 imu-'t be an Important fae'.or.  If It should happily come to maturity  und be'garnered' in good condition, ��� It  would be reasonable to expect that  this mig'ht be a **I��-nal for renewed activity ln the business of the whole  country.  I must not omit to refer to the open-  'n*** of the CfMiailan Mint on January  "nd. -when the. first coin ever minted  in Canada was struck by Earl Grey,  Die Governor-General, who said:���"As  a representative of His Majesty, I  have much pleasure in declaring the  Panadian branch of the Royal Mint  cpen." More recently���on February  6t*l>���Mr. "Fielding, Minister of Finance,  replying to a question in the Dominion  House of Commons, said that the  Mint would, shortly be turning out  gold coins of the value of $2.50,  $5 and $30.

They are worth the while  The millinery openings at Rendell & Cj's miiliuery department  will be on Friday and Saturday  next, the 3rd and 4th of April.  Miss Browo. the new milliner is  in'charge.  W. E. Hodges, of Vancouver,  is auditing the ' books of the  Greenwood City Waterworks Co.  F. Ciddeo.the little Italian who  blew up ihe hotel at Niagara a  year ago was a passenger on the  C.P.R.train trom Nelson to Grand  Forks yesterday. He will have  his preitminiary hearing there.  The Pound By-law will be enforced on and after April 1st.  The non-enforcement of this law  complained of elsewhere bas been  delayed owing to changes in the  Municipal Clauses Act. Now tbe  Commiesioners are looking to tbe  powers con ferred on them by the  Act.  The choicest confection in the  land 6oc per pound. Halt pound  and pound boxes, 35 and 75 cents  per box at McCrae Bros.'  The Concert Orchestra will give  au Easter Ball on Monday, April  20th. Their reputation in this  matter is sufficient to speak for  itself.    Remember the date.  A well attended and enthusiastic meeting of Liberals was held  at Midway on Saturday last. At  the.meeting the delegates to the  Vernon convention were elected.  President Ferguson and Secretary  Laughtdn were instructed to carry  }he votes of the district for Duncan Ross. Sam. Larsen is the  delegate from Rock Creek.  Ring up Smith and McEwen's  when you need tea. They have  Deck a julie, the tea with one brand  always good, always the same.  SUGGESTIONS  "���Don't knock ; root," said the  preacher.  The Greenwood Board of Trade  has appointed a Publicity Committee. Anybody who, has; any  good definite information about  the resources of this district, can  send it in. What about the fruit  ranchers near Midway and Rock  Creek.. Greenwood's your town.  Advertising it, will help you.   ,  Too many horses running at  large at large at night in the  north end of tbe city is a complaint registered here three times  this week. What's the matter?  The Times doesn't like calling  attention continually to petty annoying infractions of the by-law  this way but if the town is to be  a good clean, respectable town,  the little things must be looked  after. .  Why is it that so many dark  skinned turbaued heads are seen  stretching out of the sawmills  along the C.P.R. from here to  Nelson ? Is it that white labor  is not able to be had for the work  they do or are they employed simply because they work for less  money. If the latter it ought to  be stopped. The effort of the  Dominion Government to put a  stop to this is on the right line.   -  Our system  Campbell's Clothing  Special Tailoring Service  offers to men who liy-e in small towns  the advantage of having their, .clothes  made to their' measure���A'S ��� THEY  WANT THEM MADE���by the leading  tailors of Canada ,      " ���/.
