BEATTIE Manager  country  turns  with   confidence  As a figure far above tbe average  of  his  party in qualities of both  mind   aud    heart,    Mr.   Borden  stands lonely and alone.    Unsupported to any  appreciable degree  by men   of  distinction, he Avould  have an uphill task io attempt to  *f2 regenerate  his  party.     Without  ��^ a   policy   that  promised equally  good  or  better results than that  long tried by the Liberals and the  country,   his   appeal  must  needs  be that  of one  who long time in  the  shade  of  opposition, desires  the     sunlight    of    power.      He  might evoke pity, he might make  friends, but he could hardly hope  to    develop    support     on    such  grounds.  We are persuaded that the  next election will" come all too  soon for our Conservative frieuds.  The Libera! parly has beeu put  to the test aud its policy, preservative and constructive, has  answered tlie country's needs.  The people have had abundant  proof of the wisdom of confiding  in it in the past, and there are no  signs that its clean aud busiuess-  lik. and progressive methods will  not command the people's support from Atlantic to Pacific,  come election when it will.

Local shareholders of the company, and they are many, are congratulating themselves on this  confirmatiori of their judgment of  investing in this local enterprise.  The public, not interested as  stockholders, is felicitating itself  as well that this new guarantee  has been lent to its great industry  and an impetus given thereto  whose full -value can only be conjectured.  A HOPELESS PARTY  EDITORIAL NOTES  Japan appears to be "it" in the  administration of the affairs of  Korea. ��� Everybody who followed  the trend of events expected it.  Whkn Sir Wm. R. Cremer  presented himself before' the king  for knighthood recently he was  obliged to appear in ordinary  frock coat. Court etiquette forbids court clothes without a  sword, 'and Sir William's conscience forbad   the sword.  It is our pleasure to tell  in another column, a story of great interest   to   the   Boundary.      The  success   achieved   by   the   B  C.  Copper  Company, -is  not only a  tribute to the company's management   but   a   triumph for an industry   built up  under .many adverse  circumstances.     None but  strong--  men   would   have undertaken to make a success of Boundary   low   grade  mines,   at a time  when mine managers were asking  for  ores double their value.    But  there  were other   considerations  prevailing   with   the  pioneers of  the copper industry in the Bound-  arv.     Tbe  matter   of    probable  cheap  transportation, of reliable  fuel supply, of facility for smelting  had   all   to lie taken into account.  These  things have all entered'  into   the  computation,   and have  al!   assisted   in   the success  that  has been achieved.  The Granby's record has been  duplicated by the B. C. Copper  and we see no reason to doubt  that the third great, and latest  company, the Dominion, will  eventually do equally well.  The B. C. Copper Co'y. has  had the courage to withold dividends unUl such a time as it  could pav them without any financial scheming. With a long-  string of mines paid for, with a  modern smelting plant reducing  2.(jut. tons of ore a day, with no  deb: and a cash reserve, the m.a-  A large portion of the Conservative press  of the Dominion professes    to   believe  that  an election  for   the  Commons is within  the probabilities of the next few  months.       Why    such   a   thing-  should occur before the expiry of  the   natural  life  of parliament,  which has yet two  sessions to its  credit,   is difficult to understand.  The   Conservatives    are   rapturously   declaring  that  unrest Qin  Quebec,   dissension  and weakening   in    the   cabinet,    and   the  growth of  Conservatism   in  the  west  are  responsible    for   what  they  claim  to   be  in  sight, the  dissolution  of parliament before  it has run its full course.    A few  cTf���tfie-inore~franl*Ta"nd h^nesToiz  them    claim    that   Sir   Wilfrid  would quite naturally want to .appeal  to  the country while as yet  his party is iu splendid   form and  the    country    enjoying   a  great  wave of prosperity.    In this they  give their case completely  away.  The    Liberal   party   was   never  more    harmonious    than    now.  Abundant   material for   cabinet  positions abounds.     The country  is    prosperous  as   never  before.  Trade is growing, the country's  finances are in splendid shape, its  credit is good, the people are busy  and   contented.      But,    this has  been   the  condition ot  affairs for  many years  happily, under.Liberal   rule,   and   if this were sufficient  ground   on which to base  election prophesy, one might look  for one at any time.    Grounds for  an election in fact would seem to  (have   been   in sight at any hour  since  the   Liberals first assumed  control  of  the  government,   for  the  story  of  Canada's   progress  has   been   uninterrupted.      But  suppose there were  something in  the forecast, that if not this year  then    certainly    not   later   than  next, an election must come, what  comfort    can   the  opposition   in  parliament  find   therein ?     The  Conservative   party   is    without  policy,    many    of     its    whilom  strongest   men    are   discredited,  some of  its  old-time  leaders repudiated.     No   new   policy   appears as a substitute for what the  people     are   now    enjoying,   no  strong*   men   are   arising   in the  Coniervative ranks to whom the  Wk quote in another column  an article from The World regarding the treatment the banks  are handing out to the people of  Canada. . If the strictures apply,  the application deals only with  bank management and not with  our peerless banking system.  The description of Alberta's  coat of arms is a mixture of English and French. Our poor English language does not suffice  for such events. This recalls the  use of Latin in St. Paul's to detail the virtues of Johnson, a  pioneer and prince of the English  language.  Ehpokts say that ten mining  companies in Cobalt having on  their payroll 10'J3 men, are going  to resist the appeal, of the men  for larger wages, claiming that  their cencession already made  ought to suffice. The concession  made by these ten mines  amounted to $39-.07 per day, or an  average of less than 3^| cents per  day per man. Cobalt is in the  high grade belt too  KEEPS UP AGITATION.  For   Party    Reasons   not to   Help  Province Whlcti he Represents.  0000<K>00<>000<>0<>00000000<>0<>  Now that Premier McBride has  reached Victoria after a pilgrimage to  the foot of the throne and after having  received all the plaudits that enthus.  iastic though misguided supporters  could muster for htm, would it not be  well to consider what the fuss is all  about-?  Public men occupying' positions >.f  importance have two inetheds of securing- popular support. One is by an  honest earnest effort to administer public affairs; the other is bv exploiting  an alleged grievance. The first in  volves hard work and faithful service}  the latter requires nothing but the  tricks of the .political charlatan. No  one is likely to accuse Mr. McBride of  being blessed with the genius of  .statesmanship and even if sodiyi-iety  favoured, constitutional indolence  would prevent his/naking good use of  his talents. It is much easier to make  trouble than ..to rule a province and  McBride always adopts, the easier  method. Since attaining power he  has never seriously applied himself to  giving this province a sound progressive business government but by allying himself with.powerful interests  who had selfish ends to attain and by  magnifying alleged grievances he has  partly succeeded in convincing at least  his enthusiastic admirers that he is the  one thing needful in public life  in British Columbia. This may be  exceedingly gratifying/from Mr.JMc-  Bride's point of view, but is it in the  best interests of the province of British Columbia?  THE BEGINNING  British Columbia voluntarily became  a part of the Dominion of Canada.  Previous to joining the Canadian  partnership she had as a Crown Colony  of Great Britain a government equal  in power, equal in authority to that of  the Dominion of Canada. The federal  government could not legislate British  Columbia into the Union as was the  case in connection with Manitoba and  other provinces created out of areas  within the jurisdiction of the Dominion parliament.. British Columbia's  government bargained with the government of the Dominion and as a result of that bargaining she entered  confederation of her own free will and  accord. If it could be shown that the  bargain or terms of union had been  violated this province would have a  right to complain, and once she did effectively complain when Hon. Mr.  Walkem went to London, England, to  point out that by the failure to construct a railway linking the provinces  together and in other matters the terms  of Union were being violated. The  province raises Ho such contention  now.

He goes farther and locates hell in the sun. As the  earth is farther away from Alcyone than from -the sun, we  must iu point of distance be  nearer hell than heaven, although  the writer claims that everything  outside of the sun is in the heavenly system.   John Houston, former member  of the. provincial legislature for  Nelson, who has gone to Prince  Rupert to start a newspaper, is  meeting with trouble in getting  a location there for his plant.  He has secured temporary quarters for himself in the office of the  provincial police, where he prepares his copy, but he is obliged  to send it to Vancouver to-be  printed.

(Concluded from page 2)  the outset,that the terms of Union have  ���been kept. Where, then, is the constitutional right to complain ?  .FBDBKAI, PARTNERSHIP  Other provinces of the Dominion entered confederation upon terms. Each  province is a partner in a firm known  aa the Dominion of Canada. If all the  partners got together aud decided that  the firm should do more for the individual partners than that decision  should and would have great weight  with the';Do-miiiion of Canada. The  .provinces or partners have been of that  opinion for a great many years and  they did get together several times.  FINAI, AND UNAI.TS-RABI.B  As early as 1887 representatives of  the various provinces met in the city  of Quebec and considered the business  . relations, between  the Dominion and  ' the various provinces.    At that conference were some of the" ablest men in  provincial  public  life,  many of whom  afterwards served  their country with  distinction in the federal arena.    They  ' knew it would  be impossible to go to  the Dominion  parliament at any aud  at all times for the purpose of bargain-  inglfor increased subsidies, so in their  wisdom they decided that any request  for increased subsidies should be final  and   unalterable and   they so stated  in  the resolutions  passed   by    them,  irhi*.h res lutions were afterwards the  basis   of   all   negotiations   and which  were finally embodied in  the resolutions  passed  by  the Dominion parliament iu 1907, asking the Imperial  parliament to so amend the British North  American    Act.       These   resolutions  were endorsed by a further conference  of provincial premiers held in Quebec  "in 1902 and again'by the conference of  probincial   premiers held at Ottawa in  .190)5.-      These    resolutions   witn   the  '- language   final   and   unalterable   in-  . eluded   are  Premier McBride's resolutions because he was a member of Con-  fersnee of Provincial Premiers in 1906;  he went  into  the conference presumably  with  his  eyes open; that conference  again  endorsed the Quebec resolution  with  the  words "final and unalterable"   include., and Premier McBride   made  no   protest   against    the  language of the' reso ution.  CONSERVATIVES AGKKK  Statesmen   whom   Premier McBride  and other good Tories delight to honor  ��� were  and  are  evidently  of  the same  mind  as the provincial premiers that  there should be some finality to the negotiations between provinces and the  Dominion, although they might disagree with the method of securing that  finality. Premier McBride will admit  that with the possible exception of him  self, Hon. Geo. E. Foster is the ablest  Conservative in public life in Canada  today. In discussing these resolutions  in parliament on March 25th of this  year, he aaid: "Is it not possible to  put some checks on the provinces that  they may not come again and again  asking subventions from this Federal  parliament." Mr. Bergeron's and  other Conservative leaders' strongest  objection to the passage of these resolutions was that the words "final and  unalterable" could not bind any future  parliament, and finality was the great  desideratum in connection with the re  lations between the Dominion and the  provinces. So that it is quite apparent that the object the provincial  premiers had in view in including the  word's '.'final and unalterable" in their  resolution strongly appealed to Conservatives who do not hope to keep  ofiice by making trouble. All the Dominion parliament did*was t,o ask the  Imperial parliament to give legislative  effect to the resolutions passed by the  Conference of Provincial Premiers,  resolutions reeudorsed by a conference  of provincial premiers of.which Premier McBride was a member and to  which he made no objection at tha*  time.  'LOOKING   "POR  TROUBLE  Premier McBride went to that conference representing one of the part  ners. in the Dominion of Canada. He  represented the biggest, richest and  best partner in the firm. Did he go  there to get the very best treatment  for his partner? His actions at'the  conference and .subsequently, indicated but the one desire to establish a  grievance. He is exploiting that  grievance now. He hoped to thus  cover up all his weaknesses as an administrator to assist him in the provincial elections and incidentally to  help his party in the next Dominion  election. He had no desire to secure a  friendly solution of the question nor  was he anxious for an improvement of  British Columbia's position. He desired to make trouble. The. making of  trouble is sometimes good party tactics  but it is not in the best interests of the  province. The other provincial premiers at the conference were quite satis-  fier". to settle their difficulties among  themselves. Mr. McBride took the  preposterous position that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier and    his  government   should  settle the question and grant British  Columbia's demands. Upon1 what  grounds can it be held that British  Columbia alone should not be a member of the partnership of the provinces?  British Columbia is not the only province who hones.ly believes it is entitled to better treatment. The grievances of Prince Edward Island are  more numerous and more urgent than  those of British Columbia. New  Brunswick has some pet grievances of  its own and Manitoba is also blessed  with them. Once establish the precedent that the Dominion government  can deal with the province of British  Columbia without references to other  provinces, and any other province in  the Dominion would come clamoring  to the Dominion. Under such a rule  confederation would be an impossibility.  PROVINCES MUST DECIDE  The aijustment of subsidies payable  to the various provinces has always  been a question of much difficulty and  calculated to arouse provincial rivalries  and provincial jealousy. A Dotrinion  government that would undertake to  make a red'stribtitiou of provincial  subsidies without consulting the various provinces would be inviting unending trouble for itself. This view  has been accepted by everyone who has  followed the history of Canada since  confederation���save Mr. McBride.  The Quebec conference of 1887 was  based on this position and the conference of 1906 was the legitimate successor of the Quebec conference. Mr.  McBride's proposal at the conference  was that the conference should settle  the subsidies for the other provinces  but that the Dominion government  should settle the amount for British  Columbia. No one but Mr. McBride  w.nld have been foolish enough to  make such a proposal. He wanted to  quarrel with the other members of the  conference and when they would not  agreee to his foolish proposal the  quarrel was made.  FOOLISH TACTICS  Recognizing and admitting that  there had been no breach of the terms  of union and that therefore he had no  claim as a matter of right he should  have set about getting the good; will  and co-operation of the other members  of the conference and thus securing  their consent to a larger allowance for  British Columbia. Along these lines  something' might be accomplished and  Mr. McBride alone is to blame because  the province did not get what it might  have had if we had  sent to the confer-  The Star Bakery  Is recognzed as the leading bakery in  the city  for  MACAROONS   and   all  kinds Fancy Pastry, Bread, Cakes and  .

Better terms for this province can be  secured only by the consent and co-operation of the other provinces and Mr.  McBride antagonized tne representatives of the other provinces. This position is final and unalterable. A  change of government at Ottawa  would not alter the situation because  Conservative leaders at Ottawa are  opposed to any change in the terms ;  have so stated and are so recorded on  Hansard.  SLANDERING THE PROVINCE  The   truth is   that-   Mr.   McBride's  campaign   is   one calculated   to work  great harm to this province and in his  wild desire  to prejudice the Dominion  government he fails  to realize that he  is    slandering the    province.      Five-  sixths of the  province of British Columbia is practically undeveloped, Ash  croft, on the Canadian Pacific railway,  is.one  hundred miles   from the International    Boundary'   line.       Directly  north of   Ashcroft one" can travel six  hundred  miles  before  leaving British  Columbia.      The   portion   of the province  south  of  the    Canadian    Pacific  railway is the partially developed   portion; the norlh country is equally  rich  in mineral, in timber, in coal,   in agricultural lauds.     There is no portion of  the Dominion of Canada  offers a more  attractive  field  for development.     It  wants  not  only   an east and west rail  way:   it  wants a railway following its  water  routes  and  opening its valleys.  It  is  the duty of the Dominion parliament   to   assist   in   opening   up   this  country   but  how  ca'n British Columbia's representatives impress upon pai-  liament the  importance  of this province    against   the    argument   of   our  premier  that  British Columbia    is  so  poor   that   it   must   have  exceptional  treatment to keep it out o_the bank  ruptcy  court ?     We want more capital  to open  up our  mineral resources but  how can capital be encouraged, in face  of the statements of our premier that  notwithstanding; our   boasted   mineral  wealth  we   cannot    make   both   ends  meet?     There is still room for the investment of millions in our lumber industry,   but  what   encouragement   is  there to the investor when our premier  journeys  to  the  foot  of the throne to  tell his tale of woe about his province?  Large coal  measures remain undeveloped but who would invest money in a  province    which  if   the. words  of its  premier are to be taken seriously is indeed in dire straits ?  NO PLACE FOR KNOCKER  a  There is no province to be represented c by Premier -McBride. He  would be a hero'in the wilds of Labrador or on the rock bound coast of Un-  gava. He should have no place in the  richest, the biggest and the best province in tlie Dominion of Canada. There  is no other province where the necessary revenue for carrying on.provincial affairs can be raised more easily  and less burdensome to its people. Despite the maladministration of the  Bride government, despite the fact  that large corporations are escaping  fair taxation, it boasts of a million  dollar surplus for last year and at the  same time importunes the Dominion  government for more money!  ;, British Columbia has been knocked  in the past and Boards of Trade, other-  public 'institutions, even provincial  governments have anathematized  against the knockers, but when the  chief knocker of them all returns from  the foot of the throne tlie rabble-sings  hosannas to their conquering hero. ,  r7 POLICY OF DEVELOPMENT  7 '  7 This continuous  agitation for better  tern/8 is doing incalculable harm to the  province. From a federal point of  view, the Dominion parliament has  :hever'7ddne*_t^  British Columbia, and in the face of  the big voting strength of the eastern  portion, of the Dominion, it is only by  united efforts, on the part of it3 representatives that justice can be secured.  \ve cannot get our quid pro quo by  maligning our province and asking for  more money to be misspent byour provincial government. We can get it  only by taking the position that no  other province of the Dominion offers  the same inducements to a federal government to expend money in the  work of making this a great country.  We want aids to navigation to the  greatest seaports in Canada, we want  money expended on harbour improvements, we want heavy subsidies to aid  in. the construction of railways, not  ruriu'ng across mountains but through  oUr valleys; we want aid in making  productive our vaBt arid tracts of land  by means of 'irrigation; w; want our  Indian reservations placed upon a  proper basis so that the vast areas of  arable land will no longer remain uncultivated and we want an adjustment  of our lands in the railway belt and in  Peace river. We want these and several other matters that will go far towards drveloping this province and  incidentally playing no small part in  nation building.  HAD A GOOD CUE  His Honour Lieutenant Governor  Dunsmuir was the only provincial  statesman who honestly endeavored to  bring matters of moment to the atten -  tion of the Dominion government. In  January, 1905. he visited Ottawa and  in an exceedingly able dot ument he  outlined a policy, which if carried into  effect would have solved the problem  of better term, for all time to come.  Conditions have changed in the province somewhat since then but when  Mr. Dunsmuir discussed with Sir Wilfrid Laurier in a calm business like  way the question of Chinese and Japanese immigration,   the fisheries, the  encouragement of ship-building, cooperation of the Dominion with the  province in railway construction; Indian reserves in British Columbia and  other matters of less importance, he  did something that attracted attention  to the province1 andjnade Sir Wilfrid  Laurier a still more enthusiastic advocate of everything that will assist in  its development. A campaign along  the lines laid down by Mr. Dunsmuir  would bring results but Premier McBride breaks in and instead of ad vo-  cating the things that count he 'antagonizes his conferesc in the provincial  conference, takes a bludgeon at the  Dominion government, goes to the  Imperial parliament; gets two useless  words out of an Imperial statute,  (words he would never have known  were there if Mr. J. A. Macdonald had  not told him) and comes back home to  receive the plaudits of a few political  partizans who would sacrifice the best  interests of the province to get a crack  at that awful Grit government at Ottawa.  If Mr. McBride were to be taken seriously the Dominion government could  say "we cannot do those things we  ought to do for British Columbia, so  long as the province of British Columbia through it. | accredited premier  is asking us to do something for which  there is no moral or constitutional warrant." The claini of this portion of  the Dominion for more consideration  from the federal government is jeopardized ' by . the silly cry of a mischief  maker.

But conviction has come at last to  the majority of men in the matter ol  Semi-Ready tailoring. It took many  years ' and much strenuous endeavor.  Of course accomplishment was easy  when a man really gave his attention  and thought to the physique type system of the Semi-Ready. For five  years the growth of the Semi-Ready  idea was slow, but in recent years 11  has been as swift as the rise in value  of a gold- mining company which  strikes a rich vein of are. Twenty-  four new Semi-Ready wardrobes were  established this year in. Canada, each  one the result of an eager inquiry and  quick demand for the agency in some  new district.  P. W.

Mr. Wilson  now makes his home in Spokane.  Elmore Collier, tire warden who has  just come "in from Nelson, reports no  fires yet in the district between the'  metropolis of the Kootenay and that  of the Boundary.  THE WINNIPEG EXHIBIT  The exhibit of ore for the Winnipeg  Fair gotten together very hastily ap  pears to have attracted considerable attention judging from the press notices  that have been made of it.  Tha exhibit weighed nearly 400  pounds and in order to reach the Fair  on time had to be sent by express.  The express charges on it were about  S3">. A fev^ citizens made the collection and the cost of printing cards was  borne by the Board of Trade. The  matter of paying the express charges  came before the City Council, Monday  evening last and a discussion ensued  thereon resulting in a resolution to  pay one half tin* amount. The balance  is being subscribed by individuals,  who although glad to assist in so  worthy a matter feel that in work of  this kind, undertaken for the general  good, the best way is for the general  public to pay the same through the  city treasury. Doubtless, the fact that  the city donated an individual last year  SlOOtowards expenses of ore exhibit at  the Spokane Fair, had something to do  with its economy in this matter.  While it is the council's duty to administer city funds with great care  and economy, we are of opinion that the  only equitable way to pay for district  advertising is to do it out of district  revenues.  Terrible Less of Life  Another tragedy of the sea just re-"  corded is that of the wreck of the palatial steamer Columbia on the northbound trip from San Francisco. The  steamer collided with the lumber laden  San Pedro and in about ten minutes  went down. The passenger list was  large and about 75 care believed to  have been lost.  COUNTY COURT  The county court has been in ses-  ion this week.  Wuiified S. Lord and George Melville Halt were made naturalized citizens.

In Guise vs. Roy and Foulds, judgment by default was  given for S415.17.  Boucher vs McDonald went over  ovr*r until next court.  She case of the Calgary Malting and  Brtwing Co. vs Mclntyre and McDonald, in which another issue is involved  that of Mclntyre and McDonald vs. A.  Maslonka and J. _**imes was not  settled, Judge Brown giving the lawyers one week in which lo present  written arguments. C J. Leggatt  prosecutes and A. M. Whiteside de  fends.  Sunday questions were involved in  the suits of Williams and an Anarchist  Mountain syndicate. The three cases  were stubbornly contested, C. J. Leggatt and I). M. Whitesid'* appearing  for tiip plaiutiffs and A. M. Whiteside  for the defence. The matter was finally gotten through with Thursday  Evening, Williams winning two cases  out of three.  Canadian bank.rs are fond of drawing comparisons between the American system of banking and that in operation in Canada much to'the advant-  age of the latter. There may be something to be said on the score of safety  for the bank with numeious branches  as against a number of local banks  each confined in its operation to one  centre, but in view of the revelations  respecting the Sovereign bank it cannot be tittered with that degree ol confidence which formerly enabled Canadians to give thanks that their banks  were not as other banks, every time a  failure was reported from the southern  side of the Hue. It is also claimed on  behalf of the branch banking system  that it gives money mobility, enabling  it to'be sent readily from those parts of  th'e country where it is not wanted to  those.parts of the country where it is.  We are inclined to think that there is  something in this contention, but, unfortunately, ��� the theory does not work  out ..in practice quite as one would an  ticipa'.e. ��� Money moves from the district where there is an excess of deposits not'to thus.; where il is needed, but.  to those whet, the hank can make the  biggest profits Thus it comes about  that while the west is crying for capital- to enable ii to carry on business  which is growing by leaps aud bounds '  bank statement i.fter bank statement  rsveals the fact tliat millions are being  loaned in New York, where speculators  are able to pay rates of interest which  are impossible to men engaged in legitimate commerce ind industry.,.Last  April, when Canadian bankers- were  alleging a shortage of money, wondei-  ing where they were to get enough to  meet the demands of the country and  prophesying a critical situation unless  there was some easing off, 348,438,000  of their deposits w is loaned outside the  Dominion on call. *Mor did they make  any effort to retrieve the situation but,  so far from doing so, increase their  tendings abroad bv nearly 54,000,000.  the total amount being S.52,281,000. In  face of this it is adding insult to injury to say, as a Montreal banker says  the other day, that there might be a  commercial setback owing to the over  prosperity of the country. A setback  there may be, but it will not be for arv  such paradoxical reason as this but because the fruits of Canadian industry  are  made  the counters of Wall street.  This kind of thing does not occur in  the case of the local bank-in a TJnite.  Stites city, Having, no branches it  keeps its money at home so long as it  contains profitable employment for it,  using it to build up local industry and  to promote local development. Only  when it can find no local outlet for its  funds does it ship them away and it  recalls them as soon as the need of  them again makes itself felt. . Here iu  Canada-1 our banking system "is under  the control- of eastern capitalists who  appear to. have no conception of the  marvelous growth of the west aud who  have little sympathy with its insistent  demands for money. The local managers understand and, as a rule, do  their best to meet the wishes of their  customers, but their powers are necessarily limited, and by the time a request for funds front a western manufacturer has filtered through to the  east, it has lost so much of its force on  the journey that its ineffectual fires  are speedily paled by the demand of  the easterner who is on the spot, or the  urgent call frohi ��� New York for Can-  atfianTTTiolTeylffinTy-M-sO  ventures of Wall street financiers.���  The World.
