BURNS & CO. 1  Those who  are  concerned  in the  larger aspects of the commercial situation will find much to interest them  in the address of Mr. E. A. Hoare,  the chairman, at the  recent meeting  in London of the shareholders of the  Bank of British North America.  Mr.  Hoare reviewed the whole field, noting  what was  good  and promising, but  also pointing out where  danger lies.  The eyes that he used for  his  survey  were evidently  keen   for the duty assigned to them.  He pointed out, also,  what some Canadians  may  not have  apprehended, that the large recent increase in   Canadian  bank  deposits is  due in great part to the investments of  British capitalists in this country's securities,   Dominion,   provincial   and  municipal, (,as well  as transportation  and industrial.    These investments in  the year 1909, he estimated, amounted  to over $136,000,000, or considerably  more than the recorded  increase  for  the  year  in bank deposits.    This is  evidence  of   the  favorable   light  in  which British capitalists regard Canada  as a field for investment;   and it may  be added that wherever  Mr.   Hoar's  address is circulated this opinion will  be strengthened, because while dwelling on what is satisfactory in the general situation it shows also where and  why caution is necessary.    The statement of the  bank  itself with  which  Mr. Hoare had to deal and the explanations  he gave were satisfactory in  their .character.".',- The Bank of British  North America Jias a reputation for  conservatism in management that has  gained  for it the public confidence.  Its capital is $3,866,666, and  its reserve fund is $2,530,666.    It controls  assets of $51,505,000, has deposits of  #30,460,000, and loans of $31,5?0,-  000.

Last year its. new  branches were established mostly in  the prairie provinces, the call of the  Wqst appealing to it as to other financial institutions.    The net profits of  the year reported were $494,705, a  good increase oyer the figure of 1908.  They, with the balance from the preceding year were" appropriated, $340,-  666 in dividends to the  shareholders,  $97,333 to the reserve fund, and $73,-  000 to reduce the bank premises item  in the assets statement.    The officers'  pension funds were remembered, and  a liberal bonus was voted to the staff.  The record all through   was a creditable one.  WEDNESDAY  HALF-HOLllAY  REACH COAL SEAM  IN TUNNEL  LODE 18  GREENWOOD 12  That Greenwood is thorough^ imbued with the half-holiday ideav. and  the great possibilities of cemented  friendship and rivalry in sport^ between the Mother Lode and] this  town, is evinced by thc slo-niiig^of a  half-holiday agreement by the leading  merchants of Greenwood and ^Anaconda. From May' 1st, every Wednesday in this town will he a^'half-  holiday, and the following linns have  pledged themselves to close up for the  afternoon of that day:  Hunter-Kendrick .Co.,   hardware,  mine supplies; John L. White, druggist,   notions;    Thomas  Drug jCo.,  druggist, musical supplies;   A. Logan  & Co., jewelers;   Russell-Law-Caulfield Co., general  store; Greenwood  Liquor  Co.,   wines,   cigars;   A.   L.  White, the furniture man;   P. Burns  &  Co.,   meat  market;    F.   Jaynes,  groceries;   C.   F.   Stork,   ladies' dry  goods and  millinery; W. W. Craig,  groceries;   J.    Prescott,    watch   repairer j   W.   Elson, merchant tailor,  Fit-reform suits; T. Gulley & Co., the  big furniture store,   picture  framing,  Edison records;   Thomas' Thomas,  tailor,   repairs;   L. A. Smith & Co.j  Anaconda, general supplies.  Everyone in sympathy with the  half-holiday movement will do their  shopping on Tuesday, Wednesday  morning or wait until Thursday for  what they need. As a result of this  half day off there will be weekly  baseball matches, football matches,  and when the season opens, a big fish  contest between the rival anglers in  this wide awake section of the illustrious Boundary country. Remember  the day, Wednesday at 12 o'clock  noon, and govern yourselves accordingly.  of   the  Sunday  The work.nK tunnel of the Bound- J The first -baseball match  ary Mining and Exploration company, ! season took place here on ounaav  being driven on their coal property j last, between the Mother Lode and  west of Midway/has reached a seam Greenwood, and resulted in a victory  of coal two hundred and sixty-five I for the mine team over the town boys  feet from the first set of timbers. The:by   18  to   12.    A four-horse  coach  seam is about five feet in thickness,  and samples of coal taken from it run  high in carbon and low in ash. No  drifting has been done on the seam,  as it is the intention of the company  to continue crosscutting until at least  another seam is found.  From the location of the  coal and  the character of the footwall and roof  it is believed that the No. 1 seam, on  which surface development work was  done, has not yet been reached,   Surveys of the ground indicate that it will  be necessary to continue the drift for  approximately  another  forty feet before it may be met.    There  are surface  indications  of the  seam which  has  been  cut, but  it  was not anticipated that it would prove  to be much  more than a good  stringer, hence the  size of the strike is very encouraging.  The Midway  coal is bituminous in  character and   of   excellent quality.  Its coking qualities, as shown by samples taken from the  surface  development work, are all that could be desired.    The  location  can  hardly be  surpassed,   the  mouth of the tunnel  being only  some  two hundred yards  from the railway, and there  being an  abundance   of   water   and    timber.  Present  indications  point  to the development of an industry that will be  of vast importance to this locality  THE FOOTBALL MATCH  OLD TIMER LEAVES  3S  Wholesale and Retail Dealers in  jftresh Meats  Poultry and Game  Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  James Grier lett on Thursday  for New Denver, where he will  publish "The Slocan," a weekly  periodical. Jim came to the  Boundary in 1895, and worked on  the Midway Advance for nearly  two years. In the spring- of 1898  he took Duncan Ross' place on  the Boundary Creek Times while  he was one of a delegation to Ottawa. In 1899 hepublished the  Phoenix News, and in the following- year worked on the Daily  Times in Greenwood. Also in  1900 he published the Greenwood  Miner. In .1901 saw the first  issue of the West Fork News, at  Beaverdell, which lived but three  months, however. Por nearly  three years Mr Grier was associated with Col. Lowery, at New  Denver, in the publication of the  Nugget and the Ledge. Five  years ago Col. Lowery moved the  Ledge to Greenwood and Jim  Grier has been associated with  that paper up to the present  week. The good wishes of his  friends accompany him to New  Denver, and the Times wishes  the Slocan every possible success.  LOW BIRTH RATE  Britain's birth rate last year  was the lowest on record, 25. S8  per thousand ot population.  This is nearily 1.0 below the rate  for 1908, which showed a slight  increase over 1907, in first for  many years.  XEN YEARS AGO  Over half-of Bolster  --*. ��� .\5\j-***-  was sold last night to Greenwood  parties.  Mrs Thomas McAuley died at  Midway last Saturday. She was  the first nurse in tbe Greenwood  hospital.  George H. Collins, manager of  the Golden Crown mine, is in  tavor of the proposed sampler being built here.  The Quebec Copper Co., has  been floated by Andrew Laidlaw  to operate the Marguerite claim  in Deadwood camp.  The Standard Copper Co , Ltd.,  a new flotation by Andrew Laidlaw will develop the Standard  mineral claim, north of the  Mother Lode mine.  Three teams entered for the  drilling contest at the Alhambra  on Saturday evening. Alex McLeod and George Fowles won,  drilling   through   the   rock,, 31  inches in 13 minutes and 45 seconds.  The season's first football match  between the Mother'Lode mine  and the Smelter, "took place at  Greenwood on Wednesday eve-  t 5:30. Constderable inter-  akenin^the: game by the  lys-Eanders? ^Mo^Sef^^x^rie"  had a walkover. They won  Jp-y$0, Their team is well organised, well disciplined and in  good training, and contains all>-  star players. Tbeir goal keeper  was the only man who fell asleep  ���he had nothing to do. But the  Smelter team need not be discouraged' They have pluck and  endurance and only need practice  and some green and white suits  to put it all over their rivals���  spme day. After the game a  splendid supper was served at the  National hotel, much enjoyed by  all present. Want of space alone  prevents a  full  account of   the  many   eloquent   speeches   being  recorded.  and several rigs brought the mine contingent to the Greenwood Athletic  grounds and a capital game was witnessed by a fairly large crowd.  Bob Halcrow acted as referee and  is still alive. Some terrible errors  were made by Bruce county representatives. One Greenwood runner  cut first base. This was noticed by  the umpire���after awhile- and caused  much heat to be generated by the visiting team. A Mother Lode exponent of the national game saw a rabbit and ran off the base line for 40  feet. The Korean champion held  down first base so hard that no one  else could get near it. it was a first-  class game and everyone enjoyed it.  The following is the line up:  Greenwood���George Thompson,  catcher; Geo. Clerf, A. F. Thomas,  Rowland King, pitchers; Cliff Rus-  rell, first base; J. R. Sanders, 2nd  base, W. B. Fleming, Les Thompson and M. Mclntyre, fielders.  Mother Lode���C. E. Smith, catcher; T. Lyons, L. Patterson, pitchers;  W. J. Mitchell, 1st base; E. Mitchell, 2nd base; W. H. Martin, 3rd  base; A. L. Morrison, H. Jarvis and  Kd Manning, fielders.  PRESENTATION TO  J. P. McLEOD  FRIENDS FOR DR. COOK  On Friday evening  last, the  many  friends of Mr. and Mrs.   J.   P. McLeod,   old   time   residents    of   the  Boundary  country,   met  at the court  house in  Greenwood  and  presented  J. P. McLeod, for many years one of  our  leading barristers,  with  a  most  handsome  gold   watch,   suitably  engraved.     Mrs.   McLeod,   who  was  one of the earliest school  teachers in  the  district,   was  the  recipient of a  purse of one hundred dollars in gold,  a silver and ebony dressing  case, and  a Russian  leather  hand  satchel  and  card  case.     I.   H.  Hallett made the  presentation on behalf of those present.     Both Mr.  and   Mrs.   McLeod  responded to the speeches of the eve-  ening.    They   left for Victoria, their  new home, on Saturday, April 2, car^  rying with them the very good wishes  of everyone in the district.  J. P. McLeod came to Anaconda  in 1896 to practice law, and later  moved to Midway, where he met  Miss Kate McKenzie, his wife. After  a brief residence there, Mr. and Mrs.  McLeod moved to Greenwood and  have been popular residents of this  town ever since.  THE E P. U.

Tb i s is the worst disaster  since the tidal wave of many  years ago.  Mr. Roosevelt, the greatest advocate for personal liberty of conduct for his people in the United  States, merely lived up to the  letter of his far preached independence by his determination to  forego an audience with Pope  Pius X, rather than submit to  conditions limiting his actions as  a free American citizen.  DASHED TO PIECES  Another French ayiator has  met with a sudden death. Herbert  le Blon, whose motor broke down  while he was aeroplaning 140 feet  in the air, at San Sebastian,  Spain, last Saturday,was crushed  to death on tbe rocks with terrific force.  A GREAT STATION  Captain B, F. Osborne, a  staunch friend of the Arctic explorer, has raised a large sum of  money amongst the many faithful friends of Dr. Cook, to help  bim prove his claim to discovery  of the North Pole. Some of the  best scientists in the world will  be   retained,   Cook's records   re-  effort made to re-establish   Dr.  Cook.    Capt.    Osborne   says:  "We have learned  already  that  on the day that Peary says he  reached the Pole and took obser-,  vationsrfrom the sun,  there was J  not enough sun to make it possi  ble.  Never did the prospect for the  future of the E. P. U. mine look  as bright. The long tunnel lace  is in three feet of talc, evidently  the wall of tbe ledge, and this  talc is full of iron. No development work on any claim in the  Boundary has been carried on as  systematically and perseveringly  as the work done by the local  syndicate operating the E. P. TJ.  mine.

And having  made up one's  mind  to a certain  course of action it is imperative  to act up to it���quickly, and stay  with it.    The girl who cannot decide   whether   to say yea or nay  often regrets her indecision, when  it is too late; just as the man,who  could  not  decide  which  of   two  sisters was his real  affinity, lived  to sec both   of them  married���to  someone  else,   whose   mind  was  more easily made up.    What  applies  to  heart  affairs applies to  business affairs equally well, but  the old saying that "there are as  many fish in the sea as ever came  out of it," should not be  applied  to   business   opportunities.     To  make the most of each  condition  as it occurs���never regret a decision nor go back ou one's .word  is part and parcel of life's golden  rule. Having decided to stay  with one's decision is a part of  the game, aud it will win out  when indecision, hesitation and  prevarication lose for the man,  who cannot make up his mind in  a reasonable period of precious  time.

Al'KIL 3, Ilia  INDECISION  Indecision is one of the greatest impediments on the road to  success. Everyone knows how  hard it is at times to make up  one's mind. A decisive step one  way may lead to failure and misfortune, while a decisive step  taken in an opposite direction may  be the turning point in a long  lane of disaster, and be the initial  move toward a successful and  honorable career. But indecision  is a fatal form of prevarication,  and like the proverbial good resolutions that pave the thorough-  tare to the nether regions, is indicative of more than a weak  character���it is a form of cowardice. " He who hesitates is  lost," we are told, and indecision  and hesitation are very closely  allied.  Of course occasions do occur  when it is extremely difficult to  know just what is best to do, but  it is not wise to remain undecided too long, or nothicg whatever will be accomplished at all,  The fire that started at tbe C.  P. R. trestle over Boundary creek,  and just north of town, might  very easily have destroyed tbe  whole structure, if timely notice  of the fire had not beeu turned in  and a C. P. R. engiue and crew  gone at once to the fire and extinguished it. As it waa the  trains, east and west, were delayed, and a bridge gang had to  make many Tepairs before the  10-year-old wooden trestle was  fit to carry a load. It is high  time this high trestle was rela-  gated to the junk heap. It has  outlived its usefulness and its  alloted span. For the past two  years efforts have been made to  have the C. P, R. replace this  ancient relic of construction days  with a modern steel structure.  Of course, this will cost a lot ot  money, but it would not hurt the  C P. R. to make this railroad  crossing over Boundary creek permanently safe.  Jeffiries* has started for San  Francisco en route to Rowarden-  men to begin training for his battle with Johnson.

Bank. In anticipation of this meet- | xAt our meeting last year i lie --halrm-iii  ing,   1   have   made   a   special   inquiry j expressed   our   great   regret   that   the  a windfall, and must not be expected  another time.  The net profits for the year amount-  to $494,705.22, compared with $417.-  669.21���an increase of $77,020.00  ���a result whicli we consider satisfactory when we remember that for  nine months of the yeur the rates of  intercut current both In New York and  in London were exceptionally low, as  I shall point out more exactly later  on. Out of these profits we have already distributed $146,000 as au Int.-iirn  dividend,  and  we now propose  to pay  from our general manager respecting  the prospects of these liquidations, and  In reply he Informs me that no loss Is '  anticipated. Cash and specie show an '  increase of $351,519.33. The cash held Is  'equivalent to 34.8 of our immediate .  liabilities to the public. Cash at call '  and short notice are $2,560,061.33 higher.  As regards investment-*, yuu have no  doubt observed that we have sold i  $681,333.3!" of our Consols. We are weary, i  and so. no doubt, are you, of tlie fre- j  quent necessity of making provision j  from our profits for the depreciation i  In this security, and, therefore, we de- I  elded to make an exchange Into Ex- [  chequer bonds, which are not so liable |  to lluctualions in price. We hope to '  complete the exchange as soon as a  favorable opportunity offers. The War  E.oaii probably appears for the last  . time, as it matures for payment on  April 5 next. The Exchequer bonds I  have already referred to. The Dominion ot Canada bonds are unaltered in  amount, but you no doubt observed  that in the June balance-sheet we had  written them down from !��5 to 93, so  as to bring them Into line with the  official quotation. Other Investments  show a decrease of $97,386.86. Bills receivable show an Increase of $3,230,624.73.  Premises account shows an Increase of  $34,606.86 after placing to the credit of  * the account from the profits  of the half-year $73,000. There  are still some contracts not  yet completed, and upon which  further payments will become  due, and we therefore felt that lt was  imperative to make this appropriation,  especially as last,, year the profits did  not permit of making any provision  for this hecount. The question of bank  premises Is one of urgency. We cannot possibly allow it to hinder us  ���from extending the bank's operations  and influence, but at the same time  we are reluctant to see the account so  continually increasing. I may add to  this explanation that the building programme already authorised for the  I. ���"-yulVW-r-yCTrrPWcl'-wlifch dor-a��� not yet  Include the inevitable claims of the  three Central Provinces, already exceeds the moderate sum which we  have thus been able to set aside for  this purpose.  I refer to the reserve fund here so  that it may follow consecutively upon  what I have said- respecting the. premises account. If the.claims of the  premiees account are urgent, the  claims of the reserve fund are, perhaps, even more so. for, as our liabilities to the public increase, so is it  imperative that: our reserve fund  should Increase also. The profits of  the year did not permit of providing  for both accounts, but, as you have  already seen from the report, we have  been able to place.$97,333.83 to the reserve fund from another source. It  was found that we had in the past  provided more than was necessary for  certain doubtful accounts, and from  the sums thus released we have, with  "the approval of your auditors, made-  thls addition to the reserve fund. It  is a great satisfaction to us thus to  be able to do something, though not  all that  we  could  wish,  for both  oif  profits did not penult ol* giving- this  bonus to the staff, and also the hope  that we might soon be able to resume  it, and it is a great pleasure to us to  feel justified this year In making this  recommendation. It would he impossible for me to speak too highly of  the excellent work which has been done  by tlie staff throughout the year, and  It will be a great satisfaction to us  If we are able to inform them that this  recognition of their work and loyalty  to the bank lias met with your approval.  The year 1909 opened still under  the influence or tlie crisis or 1907 and  1908, and for some months the conditions of business were not favorable  lor banking profits. This you will  have observed from the report and  balance-sheet to June :10th. The profits  for the lirst six months were disappointing, but in the second half of  the year the results were more satisfactory, and particularly from September onwards, when better rates  prevailed both in New York and in  London. Even after three months of  higher rates we find that the average  rate at which we employed our call  money in New York for "the year did  not exceed 2.05 per cent., while in  London the average rate was below  1% per cent. At the same time.  money in Canada throughout the year  has been abundant, and strong borrowers have been uble to obtain a reduction In interest rates from tlie  banks; so that In every department  of our loan business there ha,-* been  a tendency to diminished pro tits arising from circumstances over whioh  we have no control.  The abundance of money Is illustrated by the fact that the total deposits In all the Canadian hanks dm-'  ing 1909 showed the remarkable Increase of $128,000,000. This increase.  is due ln great measure to tiie lar-.e  amount of capital remitted by the  United Kingdom to Canada for Dominion Government loans, Provincial  and Municipal loans, railways and industrials. The total, which does not  include the last issue by the Canadian Pacific Railway, amuunting to  $35,283,333.33, because, although t li**  issue was made In 1909, payments did  not commence until 1910, is approximately $136,266.666.6'6. These ftgvr.s refer to public issues only, but, in addition, large sums have been sent to  /Canada privately for investment in  various ways, but particularly In real  estate and mortgages, That so large  a sum should have been readily .**ub-  scrlbed marks the confidence felt by  Investors here, not only in the progress of Canada but 1" the discernment and integrity of those who have  submitted these varied Investments  for their approval. It in eons a great  responsibility.  I may now briefly refer to some of  the principal industries which are  contributing to the present prosperity  of the Dominion. The lumber trade,  after a period of depression, which  lasted well into the year, began to  improve, and since August firm prices  have prevailed, .contracts have been  made at prices ranging from 5 to 10  per  cent,   higher   than   those   currenl  at   tlie close of  l')0S,  and  the  outlook  is    favorable.      Dairying   exports     nre  diminishing   c-rwry   year.      The    total  value of the  export in   J !I0H allows an  Important decline  Irom  the  figures of  five   years   ago���a   decline   amounting  to not less tiian $7,000,000���represented   utmost   entirely   by   the   deceased  export  of butter.    This i-*  une not to  any   decline   in   the   industry,   but   to  the growth in  population.    The home  demand   for  consumption   i.s   overtaking   the   production.     The   iron     and  !  steel  Industries  have  Deen  active,   but  !  it must  not  be forgotten  that  the re-  j  vision of the bounties is close at hand.  ,  (Here   I   may   mention   that   since     I .  wrote   that   it' ban   been     announced !  from   Ottawa   that   it  Is   not   the. pre-  i  sent   intention   of   the  (iovernment   to I  renew   those   bounties).  Agriculture   must   claim     the    first !  place in this review.    The Department '  of   Agriculture   at   Ottawa   estimates !  the value of last year's  field crops at  i  3532.000,000,   or    i," 106.000,000,   for   thy  ;  whole  of Canada.    The crops  in  Ontario   were   excellent,   and   that    province still  loads,  with a  total production in field crops of $200,000,000. But  it   is   to   the   three   Central   Provinces  that   the   attention   of   the   world   has  been   chiefly   directed,  for  tlie  Import-  mce r.f the crops grown in these provinces is   increasing  every year.    Tin  pring   was   lute,   but     line,     growing  ..rather followed the seeding of spring  wheat,  oats  and  barley.    Tlie  rainfall  -vas   ample   to   Ilu-   end   of  June,   and,  ���Ithoiit-li  seeding  operations   were  de-  i'-yi-d,   tlie   crops   were   reported   to  lie  nearly   as    well   advniu-i-il   as   lu   any  previous   year,   and   tin-   dual     result  I  bowed    that   thi-   sanguine   atiticipn-  .  rious of the  W.���stern farmer had been I  fully  realized.    Karly  estimates of the  loial   wheat  crop   were  about  115,000,-  000   bushels,   but    final   reports   slut*  lhat   the      total      reached      12:!.00(1.000  bushels,   in   addition   to   which     there  .vas  a  crop   of   lCO.OOo.OOO   bushels  of  oats and  ::0.0(i0.ll0i)  buslu Is   of  luu-h-v,  lie total vain" exceeding $ H'O. 600.000.00.  Wot' only was tile quantity large, but  llie quality was excellent', and tile  -*radc throughout was higher than  Lhat of the I'iOS crop. Nor was the  ifiiiiil fortune of the farniei- e>*h.-tus*.e*i  ������y these favorable* conditions, but, in ,  addition to u large cr..p ul' high-grade j  wheat, lie realized foi- such part of it ;  is he chu*-*" ro sell a comparatively j  high price, ti price which varied in  lii'ferent districts, but which I gather  from the reports of our managers was  aot below Slie per bushel on the average. This was a good price, but it  has not sufficed to tempt the farmer  to part Willi, his .whole crop, and a  considerable, amount is still reserved  for sale in the spring. Thu conditions  in the fall were favorable for agricultural operations, and, consequently,  the farmer postponed the realization  of his wheat in order tiiat he might  prepai-f for next year's crop, and aL  the same time, no doubt, the expectation of a still higher price appears to  be not unreasonable.  Immigration into the Central Provinces, , especially from the United  S-iates, has been on a large scale, and  certainly not less than 75,01)0 persons���  probably more���have crossed the border, with tlie intention, of taking* inland in the Central Provinces. They ,  come to the country well equipped  with implements, stock, general oui lit  und -sufficient- capital, and also witli  that experience  whU'h  Is,  perhaps,  tht  i 11inst   valuable   asset   of   a|l.       In   this  statement   J   have   i.*onlii)e.|   myself   |..|  , ascertained   facts   and   figures,   but   Ui  ! would be easy tu construct a I'oivca.s;  of-the 1'i'luiv of these provinces, which  would read jikc a roii'anoe. Tile lime*  at my disposal does |jol permit of  that, 1 will confine myself |o one  statement, referring to agriculture  only. It is estimated th'U the aci-eag*.  under cultivation today in Centra  Canada dues not exceed 7 per cent, o  the total available area, Assiiiuiii-.:  this estimate u> be even approximate!.-,  cui reel, il *|s impossible foi; us |o realize the vast potentialities of (he future. We ran, however, realize tin  duty which this prospect imposes upon  us today, not ouly fur ourselves, bul  fur those wllci are to i.-ollle after us  lhe duty of coiislaiilly pressing forward und extending our sphere of influence. During tile year 19.(9 we open  ed six branches in tiie three Cenlra:  f-ioviiic-e,*-, and since January 1 uv  have added four more. Sjuch extensions ineuii a constant strain upon th-  staff and the premises account, an  you must further understand tliut t.  new branch is seldom immc-diulely profitable. .Nevertheless, we feel such  fiiufidi-nue )n the future that we respond to the recommendations 0/ our  superintendent 'whenever possible, although the difficulty of supplying ar.  efficient staff is immense.  Hallway construction is proceedinr  rapidly, and during 19-)9 tlie roads added 10 per cent, to their total niileag-.  24,000 miles of road are now in operation in Cauada, abuut 1.00') miles mot*,  than the entire railway ' system o.  Great  Britain  and  Ireland.  It is, perhaps, owing to the absorbing interest iu agriculture that th-*  "i-ogn-ss   of   the    niiitii'g-   Industry    Is  little noticed here, but I mav draw  your attention to the fact that the  mineral production of Canada since tin-  year 18S6, when complete reports were  first prepared, lias shown a remarkable   increase.       in   a   paper   recently  i published    in    the    "l-'ngineerlns  and  | .Mining Journal."  of  New  York, a re-  ! view  is given  of the  progress  of  this  i .industry, from which I take the following figures: ���In lssii the total''min-  , eral  production   was Sia.iniu.iino,  and  in  j lUtlS $S7,0iiu,iii)i��. and the tabular statement shows that the increase has. been  I steady    and    continuous.

"which  expires In  a  year���-whofher any steps  have been taken or are being taker*,  for renewing* the charter. In these uns  certain times of Government one hard.  ly knows whether anything* will be  done satisfactorily with regard to  capital. The charter hs an English  one, and I would like to know whether  steps are being taken, or are contemplated, with regard to the renewal of  the charter, because this is more important even than big dividends. If  the charter was not renewed, it would  mean that the trustees would have to  sell their sliares. because they cannot  take any risk, however small. There  is one thing, which 1 have mentioned  before, with, regard to the reserve.  You hnve some of It fn the "National  War Loan due to be paid off ln a few  weeks, and it stands at 90. I think  the date is April 1st. With these observations I wish to congratulate you  on thc success of the past year't*  management. T thank the directors for  the enre thev have taken In our affairs, and for Riving us such a satisfactory dividend. 7 will not Ray n  large dividend, because *we have hnd n  larger one before, f have been ���;  shareholder now for 45 years.  Mr. Clark���T want to support what  my friend said as to the report. 1  happen to bo the only Canadian proprietor present, and I should like to  sny thnt the re-port is an exceedingly  able and accurate one. Anyone in Ottawa or Toronto could not obtain a  more accurate estimate of conditions  in Cnnuil-a than has been j-iven by the  chairman, and It seems to me It  would bo il great pity if tlie information priven was not published in a  form so tliat every proprietor would  have tho full advantage f,f this Information, which must have taken n great  deal of trouble nnd pains to collect,  to the charter. I understood Hi-. Powell to refer to the Canadian act. which is before the Canadian Parliament, and as to which  (here will be no conditions hampering any of the banks; but I am told  he referred to thc company's charter, which i.s a royal charter here,  thougli still subject to Canadian law.  With reference to Mr, Powell's inquiry as to tlie methods of agriculture. I may sny that the Government  of Canada h-ave taken most elaborate  pains witli regard to it. They have  experimental farms ln the Northwest,  and most accurate scientific information is being furnished to farmers. You  may rely upon it that the farmers  there, w'ho are about as Intelligent as  any in tlie world, are not going to kill  the goose that lays the golden egg.  The Chairman���In thc first place,  let me thank both tlie gentlemen who  have spoken for their kind words of  appreciation. We shall endeavor to  arrange the report in a form which  will, perhaps, be more acceptable. It  has always been a verbatim report,  but I think it might be improved upon  as regards thc shape in which we  scud it out. As regards the second  iiuestion���the method of farming���I  am very glad that Mr. Clark replied  to that question, because farming is  not my trade- When I have been myself on the prairies l have constantly  spoken to tlie farmers on the subject  Mr. Powell introduced to our notice,  and, so far as 1 have been able to collate evidence, I should say that the  farmers arc fully alive to the Importance of not exhausting the soil. Recognizing that the virgin soil is extremely fertile, it is. I .should say,  tlu-ir primer object to keep it so, and 1  believe It would be correct to say  that they look largely to the introduction of mixed farming for this p��-  pose. .Mixed farming Is on the increase in Central Canada���considerably on tlie Increase���and I think it is  to mixed farming tliat they look. With  regard to tho war loan, to whicli .Mr.  Powell has drawn my attention on a  previous occasion, the result will be  tlmt it will lie paid off, we presume.  on the dm- date. It stands at 90. and.  therefore, tliere will be a surplus to  come to lhe credit of the investment  account at a Inter date. As regards  the charter, wc are fully alive to the  extreme Importance of the- renewal of  the charter, but lt would not be expedient I'or us to take any steps towards tliat end until the Rank Act is  .-���ettled in Canada. Mr. Clark has Informed tb,. meeting that.the Bank Act  which is now up for revision and renewal In Canada,. will be passed without any material change. When that  is done will be the time for us to approach tin- Treasury for -i renewal of  the charter, but it would not be expedient in our opinion to do so before  that, but, Mr. Powell, you may rest  assured we fully appreciate the importance uf it. and that It ia constantly   before   US. *���  The resolution wus carried unanimously.

This is th,.. first meeting of this company which f li.-ive attended, bill 1 cannot ((uite agree with  my friend tliere who regretted that  there wero not more members present,  because 1' think It shows tlie absolute  confidence of the proprietors |n the  board.

Wc have no hold upon  a firm: wt. want to know who the  men are. and these two gentlemen I  know   very   well,  The re-sol ut ion was carried unanimously.

Mr. Chirk: I would like to have the  privilege of svcoudlng that motion. AVe  have the results nf their work here.
