"Ef you've any secrets- " -  Brewster's laugh was natural enough  to be reassuring.     "If we were talking secrets,'stranger, we'd take to the  brush.      I've  lived in    the    Bonanza  since the day it was    opened,    and    I  don't even think .secrets behind these  make-believe -walls."  yyThe   sergeant   dismissed   his   unin-  tiptional eavesdropping :\yith a shrug  and  turned  to  the   deputy.'

Itwas a vers" bad joke. He  doubted that he ever would become accustomed to Sergeant Seymour spoken  of as murdered-���������done. for.  "Shoot," he heard Brewster invite.  "It's this way, Phil. Seymour must-  have been quite a responsible member of the Force. As you said this  a.m., his snuffing Is going to make a  noisy roar-back. I got .to report it to  somebody in the Mounted���������but who  and whereat?"  Seymour fidgeted uneasily in the  silence.that followed, evidently due to  Brewster's considering his answer.  He detested eavesdropping; never had  resorted to it on any of his cases. Bj-  way of letting the two in. the adjoining  room know of his presence, he scraped  his chair noisily over the bare floor.  This warning, however, failed to check  Brewster, or even to lower his voice.  "I remember reading that "Vancouver is ih& nearest staff-office of this  new Canadian Mounted Police, but I've  just beea thinking       It' they send  a lot of Mounties into Gold and run  down these stage-robbing murderers,  you're not going to get any credit. I'm  strong for home industry, even in justice. Why don't you delay reporting  the sergeant's death until you land  your-man?"  "Say. you're a real friend, Phil, even  if you do try to ride me sometimes. E  need the credit for turning a trick, like  that. It might make me sheriff when  the old man. gets through. But���������but  would I dare?"  Seymour started for, the hall but on  ' the way, lieard Brewster's reply:  "Write your report, Sam, but don't  post it untiL after tomorrow's mail has  gone. That'll give you a week. Then  .address the letter to Ottawa, which  will give you a few. days more. In  that time, you ought to. have'the murderers rounded up. You can forget  what I told you about there being any  Vancouver headquarters."  Surprise at such advice from a  seemingly public-spirited citizen delayed Seymour's knock until he had  heai-d it through. Of course, all this  might be merely a sign of real, though  mistaken, friendship for Hardley. On  the other hand, was it possible 'that  Brewster had personal reasons for  wishing to delay the coming of the j  Mounted? * \  With this question to the lore of his|  mind, Seymour knocked on the adjoin-1  ing door and was invited in.      ilia en- j  try seemed not to disturb cither of* the  L wo.  "Just wanted to 'ell you that the  next room is occupied and that the.  parti lion between, trf more- or less of a  Honestly  Seymdiur replied.  This seemed to invite Hardley to  real confidences.* Beckoning Seymour from the doorway, he edged his  chair closer, to the cot on which Brewster reclined in his stockinged feet.  "Don't mind telling you two in confidence," he leaned f 61'ward*" and whispered, "that I'm in a fair way to nabbing the two who robbed the stage and  killed*.Tabor and Seymour. Maybe I  ain't seemed to be doing much, but  I've got clews to burn already.'*  "You have?"-cried Brewster,7hunch-  ing himself into a sitting position on.  'the cot. ".";" :.  Hardley nodded assuredly. "'There  were two of them in the .bush- lying for  the sergeant this morning. -One had  a Winchester 30-30 and used it to kill  Seymour. One rode a horse that was  shod in front but plain behind." He  paused, evidently, from his expression,  to collect the encomiums he considered ; his due. --w ,-��������� *"'-'.  "Important yif true,^ Sam," Brewster  observed. ���������  Quick work," admitted the Mountie,  surprised; his hand was in  the trousers pocket that held tlie cartridge case picked up that morning.  "How ih the world did you learn all  that?" . - ,  Hardley seemed to relish supplying  the-'' details, -even though he had to  whisper them. Apparently he had  forgotten, that one of his confidants  was an "Utter stranger both to him and  to the camp, one whose name even  he did not know. His was country-  official vanity advanced to the nth' degree. ;. ' . ��������� .....   ���������--.;.  "Dr. Pratt dug out the bullet, which  fixed the brand of the gun with which  the deed was done. Then I've got a  half-breed boy on my staff who's keen  as a. Gordon, sjetter in the bush. He  found the horse track of the two from  the scene of the crime.. Now I'm looking foj-. a man with a 30-30 repeater  and a." horse Tthat's. Shy-oh shoes."  Surprised that Hardley should have  shown so much initiative*, and apprehensive that he was getting top near  '���������.lorne" for comfort, Seymour framed  a diverting question. x  "What do you know about the chap  who was killed ?"  "You mean this last one���������Staff-Sergeant Seymour?" asked>the deputy in  turn, but merely as a preface, not'  waiting for an answer. "Kirby of the  First Bank has heard of him. Says  he was nicknamed 'Sergeant Scarlet'  up in the Northwest, territories, and is  guilty of some of the hardest patrols  ever made. He must have been a  regular fighting machine.' Autopsy  proved that." "'���������*���������"      ���������  Sergeant Scarlet! That was the  nickname Moira had given him! But  others, to be sure, had used it before  his beautiful Irisher. Perhaps his  reputalion as a man-getter had spread  further than he knew.  Anyway, his chance to check up on  Widow Caswell had arrived sooner  than he expected.

Canada** Crops  Field er������*p_ in Canada this year, taken  all __. all, have been good, in Ontario  particularly so.    With the prices, prevailing this Province rurally can seldom have been better off and the effect  must soon be felt in the demand for  goods.   Quebec and Eastern Provinces,  too, are agriculturally favoured.  In the  Prairie Provinces there has been produced a moderate crop, much short of  last .year, except in Manitoba.   - "With  the good prices some headway will be  made, and part of the load of debt  incurred  from   overproaperity  will  be  lifted. The growth in the production of  "Dairy Products and Eggs and Poultry  m  these  provinces  continues,   and   is l  of the sTCStsst i2np0rtan.ee in maldng 1  the farmer less dependent for existence  on grain alone.  FurtHer Readjustments  Altogether, X am under the impression that we are approaching a period  ot improved business, but I cannot convince myself that that lengthy period of  prosperity for which we are all hoping will  begin until further readjustments downward of price levels- until production  costs in the old and the new world  we nearer together and until there is  a more unhampered exchange of commodities between the nations of the  worid.  Moderate Si seed Banks  There have been two- more Bank  mergers or isbsarptio-aa recently consented to and-wb>ch will be completed  riiortly. The, number of chartered banks  will then be twelve. Will thia movement go on? It is hard to say. Surely there is room for moderate ait-ed  Banks carefully conducted. The Public has the matter in it*- own control,  and can by its patronage or the withholding of it determine the question.  The Dominion Government, too,  which professes to oppose oh a policy  further reduction in the number of  Banks, can do something by dintribiit>  ing its business. Wo all pay proportionate taxes and provide certain services  gratuitouuly tut pro viae**, by law, and  are equitably entitled to a greater *ihare  in the benefit- derived from Government finance.  Just hero I would like to emphaabse |  that greater rise does not always indicate greater strength.   Take our own  case���������we are in an exceptionally strong  position.  Fifty Year's Service  Finally perhaps I may bo permitted  to repeat in eflfectjwhat I took occasion  to rny last year. This Bank will within  a few months have been estabtikhed  half a century. It ban reached the  respectable dimenaions it now has without the absorption of any other Bank,  except the Nia������*kr������ District, and that was  part of the original plan when nr.krt.i_g.  It has progres^ by thi* tliHgcnt nnd  careiui work 01* i*nm*t m*m*_.w..m-_iI t.*"11������  its managBment. It ha*������ not been backward in tho Pioneer work as evidenced  "TlSe General Manager���������Mr. A. B.  Phipns,..-following the -President's Address, then said in part-���������  In view of the advert "conditions it  is with' a gt-eat; 'deal of satisfaction that  we are able "to bring forward today a  statement showing that the earnings of  the bank have amounted7to the substantial sum of $1,107,389.99 and that  after making the customary deductions  for Pension Funds, etc., and providing  for heavy Dominion Government taxes  we are able to carry. forward a somewhat larger sum than was. carried forward last^year. ___.  Strengthened Reserves  During the period of deflation since  1920 which we bope is soon coming -to  an end, we have not been immune from  losses, but you will be gratified to know  that we have not only provided for aii  bad" and doubtful debts without drawing on the substantial inside reserves  held by tbe Bank at that time, but  have materially added to them during  the period.  Deposits Satisfactory  The deposits, which of course are the  portion   of  the  bank's  business  most  likely  to  be   disturbed  by   untoward  conditions and which last year showed  a   shrinkage   of   $1,650,000   are   again  somewhat less, the total being $88,123,096  compared with $89,442,750 in 1923  or  less  by   approximately,. $1,300,000.     I  am glad to say that whereaS last year  the falling off was in our public deposits  the decline this year is, altogether in  the Balance maintained' with the Bank  by the Dominion Government, which  is actually some 81315.00Q lesa titan it  was a year ago.   Our ordinary Current  Account and Savings Deposits, which,  following the Home Bank disaster, were  shrinking a year ago aud which continued to shrink "until" the turn of the  year, since that time have shown improvement . and,   notwithstanding   the  fact that we have closed n. number of  offices, are actually some $500,000 more  than they were last October, and I feel  they will continue to grow.    Our returns Rhow tliat there has been a substantial increase in the number of our  depositing customers during the year.  The deposits of all the banks,-according   to   the   Government   Return   of  September, -dhow a decrease for the year  of ttfiMJ&l or 1J>%- the deposits of  the Imperial Brink of Canada have decreased 1.4%, so that wc fully held our  own, eomr.thing which we constrco nn  a  wcll-rneritcd  mark  of  public confidence.

Manitoba,Man Wins Scholarship  Selected  For Scholarship  Donated   By  W. C. Macdonald, Reg'd. Inc.,.  - Tobacco. Manufacturers,  , Montreal.  .R. M. White, a native of Dariingford-  Mis-.r has been selected as Manitoba's  nominee for a $500 post-graduate  scholarship:.in scientific agriculture.,  tenable at Macdonald Cdllege,. Ste.  Anne de Bellevue, Que., and leading  ,to the degree cf M.Sc. This is one  of ten scholarships annually donated  by.W. C. "Macdonald Reg'd. Inc., tp-  bacco manufacturers of Montreal.  Under the terms of the gift two of the  scholarships-are awarded to Quebec  nominees, this-by reason of tlie bilingual -situation .there. The remaining  eight go one to each province.  In donating these scholarships,  which have an -aggregate value ot  $5,000 each year, W. C. Macdonald,  Reg'd. Inc., is adhering to the policy or  its founder-, the late Sir William Macdonald, who in his lifetime gave many  millioi-is of dollars for the advancement of scientific and technical education in theyDorainion of Canada. Sir  William Macdonald realized at a time  when the :: fact was���������not apparent' to  others, that progress in the Dominion  would depend in. a large measure upon  the facilities offered for scientific and  technical education. Without- education in these lines being readily available it would be impossible properly  to. develop the country's natural re-  osurces or to advance its basic industry, agriculture. Accordingly he gave  away mliilorisL /T"*Part of his princely  benefactions established and maintain  Macdonald College, Ste. Anne de  Bellevuev, where these scholarships are  tenableyand which is one of the finest  Institutions of its kind in ihe world.  Part of them went to the establishment  of a faculty of engineering at McGill  University. Part /went to the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph.  Mr. White, who represents Manitoba  at this year's 7 pOstrgraduate course,  took ..grades-9,7L0 and 11 in the Mor-  den High School in '04, '05 and *06, and  spent the following two winters.in the  ���������-"  The decision ol' a majority of .the members of the Board of Railway Commissioners ordering the withdrawal from operation of the Crow's Nest Pa!ss  freight rates, raises one of the biggest domestic issues 'ever confronting the  people oi" Canada. The question involved in this amazing order is hot merely  one or dollars and cents "to the people based on the rates of freight they shall  be call-ed upon to pay. Important as this economic aspect of the question may  be, It lades into insignificance'* compared with the legal and constitutional  questions involved. *  The issue now befoj_������_the p-eople in Canada is whether the Parliament of  Canada is the supreme power iu the making of laws, or whether a body of  some half-dozen men created by that Parliament has the right to nullify and  set at naught"an Act of Parliament. By the decision of four members out of  six, the Board of Railway Commissioners arrogate to themselves full power  to treat an Act of Parliament as "a scrap of paper,"-and by so doing impose  on the people of Canada heavier taxation in the shape of railway freight rates  than have the approval of Parliament. _,-��������� ...-  .And the Act of Parliament thus flouted is one ratifying-and giving*-effect  toa contract entered into by the Government of Canada, acting for the people  as a# whole with the Canadian Pacific Railway.- Therefore, another issue rais-r  *fcd by the decision !of the Board of Railway Commissioners is the sanctity ol  . contracts. If the C.P.R. is not bound to fulfill its contract with the people  of Canada as set iorth in the Crowji*-, "Nest Pass Agreement, the question at  once arises whether the people of Canada are bound to'fulfill theirjpart of tlie'  tf original C.P.R. contract providing exemption from taxation in pefpetuity for  C.P.R. property in these Western Provinces.  Furthermore, it the C.P.R. is not bound by its contract to maintain the. ,  .    lower freight rates provided for in the Crow's Nest Pass Agreement, how can   Manit������ba Agricultural College,  the Canadian National Railways, as the successor of the old Canadian Northern, be bound by the rates provided for in the Agreement with the Parliament  of Canada xinder w^Lch that railway was    extended    westward    across"Sihe  prairies? '"  Under-the Crow's Nest Pass Agreement, which the Railway Board now.  sweeps aside as in. no way binding on.the C.P.R. in the matter of freight rates  as specified in that contract, the C.P.R. received from the people of Canada  a"cash bonus of |tl,000 per mile to assist in the construction of the Crow's  Nest Pass railway. The G.P.R. accepted those millions of dollars and thereby  obtained direct access tc the rich mineral district^ of Southern British Columbia aud largely secured control of the traffic of that region which formerly had  all gone over a short line into the Uniced States. In exchange for this financial assistance the C.P.R. agreed to reduce freight rates on a selected list of  articles below the then existing lowest freight tariff. Now the Railway  Board rules that t_ie(C.P.R. is not bound to live up to its contract, and declares that the power of the Board to thus nullify the contract and impose  higher -'wight rales'on the people of Canada is superior to the power of Parliament itself. /  Aside altogether from the financial considerations involved, the people  of Canada will not lor one' moment accept the dictum that a Commission  ert'-*t->(l by Parliament is superior to its creator. Under the British form, ot  constitutional government. Parliament is supreme. . Courts are created to'interpret aud adminisier thi* laws passed by Parliament, but they cannot make  laws nor ov������*r-ride thoHt-s passed by Parliament.

We are too accustomed to look * for  currency values to New" York and _to  forget Montreal or Toronto���������possibly  because they happen to be inside the  -_j_ipiro. ^  ,The Canadian dollar ts valuable be-  - cause Canada is rich and prosperous.  Its prosperity springs fgrom three  great primary sources, of national  wealth. - There are-the minerals, the'  gold and the silver, of Ontario.

And in- consequence ot  their vigorous exploitation there is in  Canada no "dole" today. The employed have not to pay a tax Jo mairt-  Canada, unlike the powers and nations  of Europe, lias practically no external  difficulties. Her problems are purely internal, and it is this fact which  makes, the banker, rather,, than the  politician, the King of Canada.  Another vital factor in the progress  of the Dominion will be found -in its  educational system. Education is  free to everybody, and all children attend the same schools on a footing of  absolute equality. In this way the  intelligence of the whole mass of the  people Is given a free vent, and we  possess in real truth aijd actuality  that equality of opportunity of Which  the democrat has always dreamed. And  F attribute the gieat progress that the  country is making largely to the fact  that there is nothing to prevent any  lad in any walk of life today taking  th*������ rYiace &"d T>"av������nff tHi������-role now oc-  cupied by men like Sir Vincent Meredith and Sir Herbert Holt���������as the new  generation  succeeds  the  present o_e.  The knowledge that this is so- gives  a tremendous stimulus to the energies  of the individual. He devotes himself to developing the resources of his  country and not grumbling about the  limitations of a life which has in-fact  no limitation.  To ~a: sound system of education  there is added a sound theory and  practice of government'. Canada enjoys excellent administrations;���������so  that, we may hopeythat good government has become a matter of fixed  habit.

The settlement enables  Canada to close its war claims 'office  in -"Germany.  From the time the firsst forecast of  the 1924- wheat crop of "Western Canada was hazarded, estimates have  been continually rising until the latest government figures to be published show's, drastic variance from those  which were based upon conditions in  the earlier part o������ the season.

As a matter, of" fact, this is becoming  .true to a -lesser extent each year.  At the present time the wheat crop  of Western Canada accounts for barely fifty per cent, of the agricultural  revenue of that area. Whilst wheat  acreage is increasing at a healthy,  normal rate, the many phases of mixed activity are more rapidly growing  in popularity. Such issues as cattle  and hog rearing, dairy production,  poultry and eggs, and apiculture are  coining to mean a great deal more In  revenue to the western farmer, and his  financial standing is tending to get  farther away from a dependence upon  the wheat crop alone.  In the general betterment the year  has brought in most of these agricultural lines, a greater revenue will be ���������  secured, supplementing that derived  from the wheat crop and materially  improving the-condition of the farmer  in Western Canada.
