CRESTON,   B. * a  e-  The ORANGE PEKOE QUALITY makes  :   finer tea and more of it -*"*  Banking Problems In Canada  - ^^^ ��������� '*���������  * \  In the course of the address delivered by him in Winnipeg some weeks  ago, and iu which he "discussed outstanding problems of the West, including  farm, labor, grain markets and marketing, transportation, export cattle trade,  immigration., Sir Clifford Sifton paid his respects to hankers and'the Canadian  banking system, ana1 suggested what in his opinion was necessary to restore  public confidence in the banks and enable those institutions to function  more" efficiently in times of stress and emergency.  There can be no question that what has been .termed the "wrecking of  the Merchants Bank" and the failure of the Home Bank, coupled with recent  amalgamations of other banks, lias shaken confidence in the Canadian bank-  inig system which for many* years has been held up as one of the model systems of the world.i ��������� Therelore, constructive criticism and suggestions are to  be welcomed.        - . ,  One ol* the criticisms most frequently heard in the West in years past  was that while the Canadian banking system might be __- right from the  standpoint of large, financial institutions such as Bond houses, insurance  companies, montgage, loan and trust companies, and also from the standpoint  of manufacturing industri.es and large commercial and transportation encer,-  prises, it fell far short of meeting the needs of agriculture and the primary  producers of the Dominion. It was this popular feeling which ultimately  demanded and forced Provincial Governments in the West to' embark Upon  long term c-rpdit schemes and farm loan boards.  Prefacing his remarks with the statement that he was.not hostile to the,  banking interests, Sir Clifford Sifton declared that it had been conclusively  demonstrated thai the Canadian banking system, great and successful as-it Ss,  doe's not at present furnish adequate security. This was tlie great drawback  ���������lack of security! Lack of security for the shareholder, lack of security  for the depositor, lack of security in the carrying on of his business for the  farmer and the small business man.  Describing the situation, Sir Clifford said: "\Vhen_times are good the  banks get too liberal with their money; and when times begin to tighten up,  the banks get frightened and call their money in, and good, honest business  men cannot get tlie required credit. There is no necessity for the present  situation to go on. It is sheer stupidity. it could be rectified at once if  vre would take tlie proper measures."  What are the proper measures'' Sir Clifford found the answer in the  experience of the United States; and in 4 he'.creation in that country of Ihe  Federal Reserve Bank. ' Prior to the creation of that great institution���������one  of the most wonderful and successful of its kind in existence���������the United  States suffered the same disabilities as now exist in Canada only in an aggravated form because the Canadian branch banking system contains elements  of strength and flexibility lacking in the United States system.  Outlining his proposed remedy, Sir Clifford said that what Canada required was the appointment of a competent body of men, a small central  board of mature men, three, four, or halloa dozen experienced and successful bankers and financial men, the same kind of men who have been appointed a-s-v directors of the Federal Reserve Bank in the United States, who will  say, when the bankers are getting too liberal, "Slow up";-"and when money  begins to get tight, "Loosen up."  Such a board should act as a bank of re-discount. Dominion notes',being  issued by the Finance Department upon their requisition, it being the privilege and duty of alt banks to go to this central board for re-discount whenever .the'business of the country required it.

The United States, with all its wealth, would, said Sir,Clifford, undoubtedly have had a fearful financial crash after the war had it not been for the  Federal Reserve Bank���������a system which provides a safety valve, a ready and  sufficient supply of currency i ^emergencies, and the effect of which is practically to guarantee that no bank in the United States,'which is in a solvent  condition, need fail for lack of currency. It, therefore, becomes unnecessary  for -hem to contract their loans and conserve their resources to meet emergen cie->.  Such a control board as proposed would have its own small staff of auditors, which would be a deterrent on any bank manager going into an unsound  transaction. It would not be necessary to inspect: all branches of a Bank,  only the head offices and ih������* larger branches, the law compelling each Bank's  own inspector.-- to make a special return to this, central board of all loans  in branch banks over a certain amount, whereupon a special audit would be  made -rhf-re any large loans might ho regarded as a source of danger.

The improvements are  how paying the school taxes, instead cf the land. Take the Gibson holdings for example.

The former is clean  and neat and a pleasure to the  eye; the latter is filthier than a  hobo's camp, with tii* - cans and  garbage of all kinds dumped on  the lake front. The people here  have been waiting for thirty- one  years for some-thing- to happen,  and nothing has happened but  an occasional death, and cows  roosting on the sidewalk.

The field glasses  that, he trained on the seemingly limitless plain, revealed no'break nor object that would indicate human, habitation. . With a puzzled look he turned his glasses eastward along the  range of hills. : After a close inspection- of the skyline, he detected  against the deeper blue of the'-e'astertt  sky: a "faint; tissue film of smoke that  seemed" to be issuing from, or beyond,  a, "fringe of trees visible along the  ed^e of s& transverse ras'-e of hills  some distance away. With a relieved expression depicted on his countenance he'turned his horse in the direction indicated by this column ot  smoke and proceeded on his journey.  While the^ place from wihch ^this  smoke issued might not prove to, be  the location of the Indian Agency,  which was his objective as the end  j of his first day's t;rip, he inferred that  rny discharge from .the Canadian army,,  with which I had been serving as  scout with the General Middleton  Brigade in -the" Kiel "Rebel] ion. I am  on my way to North Dakota, where  some of my' people live. I was head1  hag .for the Moose Mountain Indian  Agency, where I intended to spend  the night and get additional supplies  to continue .the trip, but it seems I  missed the trail. " If you can direct  me there I shall feel grateful.*'  "There is a . trail leading to the  agency from, any hoh\e. Follow this  trail and it will lead you to the house  about two miles east of here. From  there father will show you the trail  to the agency." With this parting  instruction she turned her horse, and,  waiving him a parting greeting, she  set spurs to her horse's flanks and  galloped off in the direction of the  hills to the south to resume her  search for the horses.  " For a few minutes he stood watching her as she cantered over the rolling ground till she dro*pped out of  sight half, a mile away beyond the  brow of a hill. Her graceful riding,  her skill in handling her horse, as well  as her, ingenuous manner, attracted  both his fancy and admiration. For  some time he stood hesitating and  undecided'as "to -which course to follow. ~~ He was seized with a strong  urge to press his assistance.

As he approached the bluff, he fol-^  lowed a  dim trail that led for  some  distance along its edge, which finally  brought  him   through -an   opening  in  the  trees.      As  he  emerged  on  the  other side of the bluff, his horse came  to a sudden stop, when he almost collided   with  another;  horse   and   rider  . cantering towards him';-     Quickly recovering himself from the surprise of  this sudden meeting,  he - checked  up  his horse  and faced the new .arrival  with alert composure.      That the surprise  was   mutual  was  evident   from  the attitude of the hew arrival/who  sat  firmly  in  his  saddle,  bridle"-rein  in the left hand-, while the right tightly   gripped   a   Colt's  revolver.       Still  leaving it  slung  in  the  holster   suspended from a belt around the waist,  the stranger, without    speaking,    intently, watched the movements of the  traveller.      He, in turn, appraised the  youthful rider in front of him, ; who,  sitting astride a  spirited mount held  wellin hand, was, as-'he sui-mised, a  youth of about eighteen years of age.  -He  was dressed  in l-iding boots  and  breeches, above which he wore an Indian    tanned    buckskin jacket, frilled  and beaded as such garments usually  are.      On his head a gray slouch hat,  pulled  well over the  face, fairly well  concealed Lhe upper part of a youthful  j and pleasing countenance.  I      The  strained  science  that followed  i this    sudden    meeting,  during which  both   riders   mutually   regarded   each  other,  was, atter    a    few    moments,  broken by a sweet feminine voice that  both    thrilled    and    astonished    the  traA-ellei* as it asked: '.'Excuse me, sir,  but did you notice a bunch of horses  along the  trail  as  you  came  along?

Two  policies are involved**- in. this service,  one; the remission of freight charges,  brought about by ^an. ara-angement between the Livestock Branch and the  railway companies, and the other,  the payment of the reasonable travelling expenses of farmers 'making the  purchases. The- minister's report,  which sup-plies this .information,  makes it clear that the assistance  thus given was available for stock  purchased for breeding or further  feeding by the purchaser and not'-for  speculative purposes.  __?___ _fl_������ ��������� i  WWSJj ������_������  thai __sm-_"t-_T contains in most  compact form, all the" essentials  of  a*-perfect   ever-ready   home  This grand herbal preparation  is beautifully soothing for cuts,  burns, scalds, etc,, or for chafed  and chappecT skins.
