No. 40  Lister School  Concert Success  Variety Programme at Christmas  Concert Best Ever���������Musical  and Literary Talent Surpries���������  Lunch at Close ol Proceedings  Including the opening and closing  choruses there were 28 numbers on the  programme submitted at ths Christmas  concert at the Lister school on Thursday  night, and all present were quite agreed  that it .was just a.little better than the  best ever pnt on there at yuletide.  Every number was of merit and both in  training the children as well as selecting  the various "items presented the teachers,:  Misses Curtis and Webster, showed conspicuous ability.  The schoolhouse , was packed to  capacity, the parents turned out in large  numbers, and John Bird was in charge  ������f proceedings. With the offerings so  uniformafly good it is hard to select those  of exceptional merit, but judging by the  applause some of the very-best w.xild be  the duett, "Where are you going my  Pretty Maid/' by Eileen Pendry and  Daniel Domke, which was' good for an  encore. Equally popular with the  crowd was a two-act play, "The  Buggies," with Hose Hay ward in the  leading role, supported by niue senior  girls and boys. Douglas Sinclair-won  the evening's honors as an elocutionist,  giving two numbers, "Getting and Giving" and "Seeing Things.". David  Gustafson ann Frank Yerbury had a  pleasing sketch," Rastus Rambles On."  The cantata, "Awakening off .Christmas," was roundly applauded, as was the  No. 1 will J_e taken over by N. Husband,  whowasthe lowest bidder for the job  and^has i& four-yeor contract. He is at  ���������present employed as -cook in the relief  camp at Sirdar but is confident he can  handle! both jobs without loss of tune.

Approval was given a resolution  submitted by the committee on  redistribution, which was submitted by F. H. Jackson. It  asks that in view of another  redistribution of legislative seats  that the former Creston riding  (which was merged with Nelson  canstnuencv at the 1$J2 session)  be restored!, but in case a worth  while redistribution is made at  the next session of the legislature  no ebjection will be raised to  having all the territory east and  south of Kootenay Lake included  in the Cranbrook constituency.  course Santa Claus, in tho person of  Mr. Toozo, made hif* appearance nt  the appointed time, and every child  waa remembered with a useful gift, n������  well aa tho customary bag of candy*  nuts and orange.

THE   REVIEW.   CRESTON.   B.   ������,  WORLD HAPPENINGS  BRIEFLY TOL0  Seventy-two railway freight cars of  Christmas trees have this year- been  shipped from Vancouver Island to all  parts cf the United States.  A Japanese government spokesman  declared tliat resumption of diplomatic relations between Russia and  China was most unwelcome to Japan.  For the first time Canada will be  boat to 31 countries whicb participate  in the Pacific science congress in the  summer of 1933.  St. Nicholas, the traditional original  ot Santa Claus, was feted throughout Italy December 6, on the 1580th.  anniversary of his death.  Documents   indicatim  that  the  North American continent was discovered in 1452 by the Portuguese  navigator, Pedro Vasquez de la Mon-  tora, have been discovered.  The king took two firsts and a second prize with three-year-old red  polled heifers at the annual pre-  Christmas fat cattle show at Norwich, England.  Finding that cattle hides could not  even be given away, a Ukrainian settlement in Alberta plans to establish  a tannery and a shoe factory in the  near future, G. W. Sikevich told an  audience at Winnipeg.  Tbe board of railway commissioners  has no jurisdiction to make contributions from the grade crossing fund to  works which do not eliminate the  crossing itself, the supreme court of  Canada has decided.  Somewhat resembling a moratorium legislation is being considered  Singing   Fiddler   Of  Lost   Hope   Hollow  Aged   Musician   From   Kentucky   To  Attend Song Festival In -London  On his way to attend the National  Polk Song Festival in Albert Hall,  London, England, Jilson Setters, the  "singing fiddler of Lost Hope Hollow"  has sailed on the Cunarder "Sanaa-,  rla," from New York, This last minstrel of the Southern Appalachian  Mountains, will be a featured performer at -the festival.-  Mr. Setters,'who is now-more than  seventy years of -age,, was. blind for.'  sixty years. Early in youth he learned to play the violin. Of English  stock, he learned the songs and tunes  of England from his" parents and  other members of his family, and has  since carried them "in his head." He  made a specialty of Elizabethan ballads which had been handed down by  word of mouth from generation to  generation.  A few years ago while S. I_. Rotha-  fel���������"Roxy"���������was journeying through  Kentucky, he heard Setters play and  was instrumental ih bringing h__h to  the attention of the American public.  Since then he has been on the air  sevOral times, singing his songs and  playing his fiddle in a way that has  brought delight to thousands of radio  listeners.  But recently recovering his sight,  the world is all very new to him. He  Icoks forward with keen delight to  his visit in England. He is eager to  see, a "lord and lady of beauty  bright," a "knight with a milk-white  steed and a gypsy queen," like his old  song ballads describe. He expects to  find the quaint England of three hundred years ago.  Although  unfamiliar with written  notes, Mr. Setters is a born musician.  His  skill has  been described as inimitable He bows with the left hand,  ; a very unusual accomplishment for a  i violin player.  I The aged musician inherits his love  I of music from Ms grandfather, who  [ was the first wandering music teacher in the mountains of Kentucky,  by the Alberta Government to aid!

New Uniform  In  British Tommy   To   Be   Clothed  More Comfortable Fashion  The Dominion troops set an example to the Old Country during the  war of uniforms giving utility and  comfort rather than parade ground  smartness. The new uniforms intended for the British army which were  shown in London by the war office  are more easy wearing than anything  conceived of before. They suggest  Boy Scouts and week-end hikers more  than the old-style of His Majesty's  regiments.  The cap is "not the stiff, peaked  variety, it is a hat with wide brim  giving shade to eyes and neck and  it is of a soft material and can be  rolled up and put in the pocket. It  has no chin strap or other kind~~of  fastener and one imagines that if a  line of soldiers are on parade every  hat will be at a different angle and  every brim will be flapping in the  wind.  Instead of the tight tunic witb  thick collar buttoning close up th������  neck the new jacket is loose fitting  and has an open neck.

Miss Thomas  had written newspaper articles about  Mr. Setters years before he came to  the attention of "Roxy."  When Mr. Setters returns from  England he intends to retire to his  old windowless cabin at Lost Hope  Hollow, in the Kentucy hills, there to  ponder over the great curiosities he  viewed in the "outside world."

But I think , it will be a long  time bofore they kill the romance  of the Morse Code in the public  eye.  The first words ever tapped out  by Morse were, "What hath God  Wrought?" They were sent from  Washington. to Baltimore on May 24,  1844, by Samuel Morse, whose electromagnetic telegraph was regarded as  a wild scheme���������until he succeeded.  The most important message  next transmitted was from a ship in  distress���������the "C Q X>" which signified  ���������"Come Quickly, Danger."    _ ~  But nowadays if an airman is in  distress, he does not send- out an  "S O S ."

No Premium On Gold  Vancouver   Banker   Had    Edge   On  United States Citizen  A TJnited States citizen presented  some bills, silver dollars and. several  $5 gold pieces of his country's currency at a Vancouver bank. He got  19 cents premium on the dollar for  his bills, eight cents on his silver and  nothing oh his gold.  He protested against the discrimination against gold in favor of paper,  but the banker explained: "Your gold  pieces are worth no more tons than  Canadian gold pieces of the same face  value. We will give $5 in Canadian  bills for a $5 Canadian gold piece, and  we can give no more for an American  gold piece of the same amount."  "But I thought you were paying  a premium on gold ?"  "On raw gold from the mines,"' replied the banker.   .  "And, by the way," stated tha  banker, "you will have to leave the  gold here now, because it is illegal to  take gold out of Canada without a  Government license."

A Call To Vengeance  During that dash down the  Mackenzie, Alan's thoughts were fnbt unviable.   .   .    .   "They used  J_targaret  Fournier as a means of making their  .getaway from the steamer. It worked  .so well then that they might J;ry the  idea again. They might try to capture  Joyce and use her as a sort of hostage to protect themselves." '  But somehow he did not greatly  fear they would do this. He remembered the gun she always carried, his  own gift to her on her twentieth birth- j  day. A black automatic, a tiny thing  like a toy, it nevertheless was blunt  and effective as a terrier bulldog.  That big red-bearded bandit who had  threatened to put a bullet "squar'  a'tween" the eyes of Margaret Four-  3B_ier, would likely get one between  his own if he tried"any brutality with  ���������Joyce MacMillan. -     '���������  To Alan it seemed pretty clear that  Bill in his haste and excitement had  made a mistake about those men being strangers to every one aboard the  -steamer. It didn't look possible. They  knew this country, knew it intimately.  It took years to learn the ins and outs  of so huge a region. But they knew,  Alan concluded: "They T:'aren't  Grangers, of course, feiil jjust made  a mistake."  '.';���������, v"':"':. .. ":''"',  Half-hidden between two blanket  packs Constable Whipple sat fingering hits rifle, peering ahead anxiously,  as though ata^^oi^ont he expected  to meet the outlaw cargoes here on  tfce Mackenzie. Alan watched him  with something of scorn in his eyes,  Whipple Was constantly spying upon  tho other men, listening, with long  ears, reporting everything ��������� that happened and it lot that diet not. ;'...'"'���������  Forty    miles    bolow   Endurance;  awoaplng noar to ahorc around a great  bond, Alan looked ahead and sighted,  tho Midnight Sun out in midst room,  plowing steadily up so^la.

Several of tjlie men, haatily  tj_atchlii������ one of tho amtwahed oanoea,  had followed up the Alooska a mile  and found her on a willow island  where the bandits had set her off.  When Alan came on deck, almost  his first sight was of Jimmy Montgomery's little girl, perched upon a  pile of cargo, showered with care and  attention from every one. - As - he  glanced at the tiny golden-haired tot,  Alan thought of her mother dying  less than a year ago,, of her young  father cut down today by an outlaw's bullet; and he had.a swift vision of the bleak orphanage, the  friendless and homeless life, which lay  ahead of her, now that Jimmy was  dead. He was not deceived by the attention she was getting now. Every  one was all sympathy for her today,  but that would cool mighty quick;  and then she'd be thrown into some  orphanage, maybe along with half-  breed and Indian children. Alan  thought, "She's Jimmy's child; Jimmy was jihy partner; It's up to me co  do something about her."  With nothing more definite than  this in mind, he directed Ashman, the  white-haired skipper "You put her off  at Endurance tonight. Give her to  Elisabeth. Say I'll be back~~in two  or three days."  Following the old captain, he stepped softly, hat in hand, into the one  well-fitted cabin of the steamer. He  remembered Jimmy as a trail partner and a quiet gentle soul and the  most utterly fearless man he had ever  known. Stone silent he stood beside  the berth looking down for the space  of half a minute, sick at heart, his  eyes blurring. Why had itjbeen Jimmy who was cut down?���������a young  man, a young father, the best and  bravest of them all.  Then like a small whisper In his  loss, a thought came, edged with  pride in Jimmy and the manner of  his death:  "You were the only one who drew  "a gun. You knew they'd kill you. . . .  a belt-gun against six rifles; but you  stood up and shot. You were always  that kind; and so was Curt. * Now  you're both gone; now I'm alone, of  us three���������"  The desolation was unberable'. Bill  following, he turned and went out of  the cabin, -into' the' 'sunshine of 'the  deck. A grim mood had come over  him, a mood shot through with personal and deadly intention. He was  no longer merely the stern and efficient representative of the law. Vengeance, a burning and righteous vengeance, had entered his heart.  With a dozen men crowding around  to listen, he questioned Skipper Ashmun briefly.  mm*������m*mamm*$mm*mmmmmmmmwmt  XV.   H.

In all his years of police service he  had never met quite so dark a circumstance as .this.  As he and Bill*:went down the ladder, the rail was? lined with people  wishing them a quick capture, wishing the criminals1 a swift and speedy  justice. Alan did not hear, did not  care. But as ho stepped into the  canoe and with a.shove sent 'it skirling .toward the launch, he did hear  one-voice from some man on the  steamer; and it,,rang in his ears like  a croak of evil prophecy:  "Going after men like them, Alan  Baker, you'd better take your luck  along!'!  *******  At the MacMillan trading post  Joyce had lighted candles in the  kitchen and trading hall. Though she  hardly knew just when her father  would return from his fur-buying  trip, she had kindled a comfortable  flre in his bedroom and had prepared  a supper of scones and breaded mushrooms and willow ptarmigan whicb  she herself had shot that morning.  As she stood tiptoe at a pantry  shelf, away from, the crackle and  sough of the cook stove, she heard  some peculiar noise somewhere out in  the night. She went over to the window and there heard it more distinctly���������a faint drone that rose and fell  with the ground winds drifting out  of the spruces.  The puzzling sound drew louder,  plainer. Then suddenly Joyce knew.  The police launch! Coming up the Big  Alooska. Coming slowly because'of  -the treacherous channel, but driving  on through the twilight in spite of the  danger.  That launch went out only on matters of importance. And this patrol  must be very important, to bring the  men up a perilous river at this' hour.  Throwing a cape about her shoulders, she ran through the trading hall,  out into the sharp pine-scented air;  down to the canoe landing at the  river bank.  As she stood on the mud-filmed  planking, with the whispering breeze  molding cape and dress closely about  her vigorous young body, Joyce tried  to pray that-Alan was not leading this  patrol. Her girlish pride was crying  out that she did not want-to see Alan  Baker. Her rational'mind was warning that it would be better for her if  she never saw him again at-all. But  no pride or rationalizing could beat  down the secret throbbing expectancy  of meeting Alan, of hearing his voice,  in a few minutes more.  Through the whole long winter  Joyce 3iad been slowly realizing that  her return to this northern Waterways country had been a terrible mistake. Onco she had been away, free  of it all. With the true instinct of  colonial Britons for their children, her  dad and mother had sent her out to  school, a solid old English institution  in Ontario. When she finished, she  quickly hunted, up a job for herself,  a place with a government bureau,  where Jier knowledge, of .Indian languages and customs made her uniquely valuable In preparing pamphlets  for the far northern agencies. Independent, earning a good salary, with  friends and sports and work she  liked) she had given up all of it and  -returned to-this isolated fur poet on  a sub-Arctic river.  Jier mother, had d^ied, and her father., alone, crushed h/y the relentless  competition of big companies out to  "git" him, had morally gone to pieces.  Alan in his letters had written her  the sorry facta. Her duty, clear as a  call, had spoken to her, "If you return, you may bOnabie. to stop that;  you may help Daii back towhere he  was." ^'^  y .������������������She:)lt!ne^ leur-  prlecd at her loyalty, and itliought her  fo&tisfh., and wore shruggliigshoulders  at the; hopoloBBnoBs of "a,mete girl trying to; lift Dave ikacMlllan above the  whisky'ahd^Indlah-'woman lifol-oliad  Bunlt" into. ;Etut: Joyce Tdt(i; notconsldor  lt:'.foc4lpb^a^^^  loyalty about it. iT^iatover | jfija. ��������� do-  morplliiityo-i now, hor father liad been  . the.''best'of!'.,fathpysj;^;'l\pv, '..toolttng,  at hlmnot aa a father but .as! a nam,  alio could realis-O, in l^or own wonaan-  hood, that ho had been the htest of  husbands ta hor mother.��������� ...She folt It  wo.8 iter mother'fl death; tjio inconsolable tragedy .of GSdci ,wlthdrawJk^g''Ma  hand, which really luid broken sturdy  Davo MacMillan.

Not the-, least interesting point  about'the Lytton commission's report  on Japan's doings in Manchuria is the  fact that" a Lytton was> chairman.  Lord Lytton is a member of that  older British aristocracy which has  always accepted the responsibility and  duty of public service that is applied  in authority.  __ The Lytton family has been  serving every British monarch  since Henry IV.; each generation has  contributed its talents, such as they  have been, to the state. And in this  it is no different in tradition from  such other great governing families  as the Cecils, the Howards, the Sack-  villes, the Spencers and the Church-  ills.  Changes are proposed, are accepted  and are finally discarded in favor of  other changes. An insular nation  develops into a great empire; that  empire, in turn, undergoes profound  changes; that empire decides to enter  into an experiment in Internationalism such as the League. Always, with  a consistency that is astounding,,  these great families continue to produce their share of leaders. It may  seem a little extravagant to say so,  but we suspect that were revolution  to come to Great Britain a Lytton. a  Sackville or a Cecil would be found  as confidential adviser to the chief  commissar  yjnere is  NO ODOR*  -frojTL FISH  A ^ .-v ���������������  / ^v,.:-,:^?*.".;''r^.-,-^  .. ���������?"������?������������  w^    orirom���������  vegetables cooked.  {it ������/4Nl3P/3R  Boiled, or steamed, fish comes out  firm, and solid, swimming in. its own  juice, when you seal it up in Canapar Cookery Parchment.

What is the thing- that really counts in your life?  Many people who had always accepted what life brought to them from  day to day without giving- much thought to the matterr are in these times,  as a result of experiences through which they .or relatives and close friends  are passing, or as the outcome of their reading and observation, being  compelled by the verry impact and forrce of present conditions to seriously  ask themselves what, after all, is the thing that really counts in my life?  Take the case of a man known to the writer. Having for more than a  quarter of a century held responsible positions in one of our Western Provinces, and received a very gratifying salary, he suddenly found himself three  years ago thrown out of bis employment. S-'nce then he has had no secured  position but has employed his energies in various ways and in return for  such remuneration .as it was possible to obtain.  Today his income is at its lowest point yet touched. He is aware it may  further shrink if not entirely disappear, as has been the experience of so  many.  During these past three years this man has seen the value of such  property as he possessed reduced to fifty cents on the dollar of its former  value, and it is presently unsaleable at such a reduced -figure. Such reserves  as he was able to build up are steadily disappearing", and he is now approaching three score years in age.  Has be become discouraged, embittered, railing at his fate, aud ready to  turn and rend somebody else, or some institution or corporation, or the whole,,  system of economics and government under which he lives, which he himself  helped to build up, and under which he is now sustaining'loss -where formerly he profited? That is, does he regard material things as the things that  really count? No, although he cannot see light ahead at the end of the tunnel through which the world is passing, he is not discouraged nor embittered.  He has not the slightest desire "to take it out" on somebody else. While  recognizing, as every observant person and student of affairs must recognize,  that changes and reforms are urgently, imperatively required in our social,  economic and political strructure, he also recognizes that he must accept  his full share of the responsibility for the mistakes of the past, and that,  instead of throwing all the blame on the system, or on those whom he assisted to place in positions of authority to administer that system, some of  that blame must be apportioned, bo himself. If others made mistakes, so did  he, and he is fair enough to admit it. He realizes where he made mistakes,  not deliberately, but In the belief that he was doing the wise thing, but mistakes nevertheless. Why then lay all the blame on the system he helped  to create and develop, which for years he upheld, or upon those now in  charge of that system and struggling against an accumulation of past-mis-  * takes,���������his own included,���������as -well as the mistakes of others in far-distant  lands over which they had no control but whose mistakes re-act upon us, as  ours re-act upon them ?  This man is no high idealist. He has a healthy respect for the purely  material things of life. He enjoyed them in the past; he acutely misses them  now; he hopes to enjoy them again. But he has learned to realize that, after  all, they are not what really count in life. He has health, and when he sees  others in sickness, possibly suffering and slowly dying of an incurable disease, he is thankful for something far exceeding great riches. ;  If he alone had suffered loss, he might feel embittered. But when he  sees countless thousands who have sustained similar,, possibly greater  losses, he feels no bitterness, but a new and greater sympathy with everybody else. His old indifference to many questions and problems, his reluctance to give of his time, talents and energy to their solution, has passed  away. He is not 'so busy" now, with his own selfish concerns that he has no  time to devote to public and community affairs. He has discovered there is  something much bigger and infinitely more important than himself and his  personal affairs.  He may not weather the storm of the depression in which he, with so  many others, is engulfed, although he is not the type to give up. But while  a loser in one sense, he is a gainer in another, and the whole world is the  gainer too. The universal experience of losing something, is having a humanizing effect not only on this man, hut on hundreds of men and women.  Puzzled as they may be by present conditions, the youth of today will be  stronger than those of the past generation who were cradled in the lap of  prosperity, If, indeed, not of luxury.  From the experiences of the present is it not possible that we all may  learn that It is not what happens to us but what happens within us in times  of stress that determines whether we are defeated or victorious; that  whether we win or lose does not matter so much, but rather how we bear  the bottle through?  May   Broadcast   Power  Without   Any   Wires  Young Kitchener Inventor Claims He  Has Discovered Method  Two years of experimenting have  resulted in his discovery of a method  to transmit electric power long  distances without -wires, is the claim  of 22-year-old Frahk Fedy of Kitchener, Ontario.:      y-v  Fedy, a former, insurance agent,  said he demonstrated his equlmeut  for,, engineers in��������� ?-Toronto> and that  his apparatus functioned perfectly.  Bovver broadcast from his transmitting stations was picked up: .-two  blocks distant.  An engineer, who was in.Kitchener  from Toronto admitted that the experiment showed ;Fcdy "has something." The young inventor is going  to Montreal to denaonstratc thei*e. He  visualized a central transmitting station iri Kitchener, *which would broadcast electrical energy to heat and  light homes in the city and in the  surrounding country for a radius of  100 miles.  Au aerial on the roof of a house,  similar to a radio antenae would take  the power from the air.  A receiving outlit could be manufactured to sell as little as $5, the inventor said, He added he has secured  financial backing in Toronto to the  extent of 530,000.  For two years after he graduated  from St. Jeromes' College at Kitchener, Fedy worked as insurance agent,  "just to pay expenses" so he could  continue his experiment in the  privacy of his boarding house bedroom. In July he met with an automobile accident, which rendered him  blind for a month. His eyesight is not  yet completely restored, but he has  finished his invention.

A. Buchanan,  publisher.  The Herald was first established as  a weekly paper in the autumn of 1905  by F. E. Simpson, of Cranbrook, B.C.,  and W. A. Buchanan came from St.  Thomas, Ont., and purchased a half  interest. Later he acquired the entire  ^property and, on December 11, 1907,  launched the Herald as a daily newspaper.  Members of the Western Associated  Press from its inception and later of  the Canadian Press when eastern and  of refining oil   was   predicted   at   a I western Canadian co-operative news  meeting of the American Society of  Mechanical Engineers by William F.

The Farish-Cammei- report said  that under the new system the crank-  case will never have to be' drained,  and the engine will develop more  power and use less gasoline.  Ten years of practical tests were  cited to back their contention that  in all kinds of engines and under all  varieties of road conditions nearly all  kinds of oil can be made by the new  process to. out-perform anything now  produced.  The oil in these tests was crank-  case dralnings, the mucky stuff motorists throw away.

Official  Fertilizer Guide  Helping the Farmer To Select Best  . Combination Of Plant Food  One of the most important functions of the Fertilizer Division of the  Dominion Seed Branch at Ottawa is  the inspection and analysis of fertilizers, under the provisions of the Fertilizers Act.

The annual meeting cf the shareholders of the Bank of Montreal,  held at the- .Bank's Headquarters,'  was largely attended. : The report  and statement of account,/, particulars ;. of which have ��������� already biesn  published, wej-e unanimously adopted, and the retiring director were  unanimously re-elected.  Sir Charles Gordon, the president,  said that during the year tlicy had ,  been confronted with declining  trade,, dislocated foreign exchange,  lessened demand for banking accommodation and low rates cof interest in the world's monetary centres; yet the Bank had managed to  earn fair profits, to preserve a  strong1- liquid position and to meet  the legitimate requirements of their  customers.  W. Ay Bog, joint general manager  with Jackson Dodds, said in part:  "Your Bank has come through  this period with undiminished prestige, for it can be claimed without  exaggeration that events have only  served to emphasize the important  and outstanding position which it  occupies in the business affairs of  this country." ~ ���������"<���������''.     -  Both the President and the General I Manager came out strongly  against any inflation of currency in  Canada, as had been advocated in  o"_er quarters in connection with a  suggested .esta.blisb.ment of a national ��������� central": bank. -Sir Charles  Gordon saidf-that- fot 18 years, under the provisions of the Finance  Act, Canada had had all the advantages which might come from a  central bank, the legislation having  admirably performed its purpose in  this respect. Monopoly of note issues by the Government, he declared, would not increase by a single  dollar the amount of currency in  the hands of the public, unless the  notes were made irredeemable and  recklessly emitted From the time  of the French Revolution in the  18th century, he said, the shore of  financial history was strewn with  the wrecks of ventures in irredeemable paper money, and if there  was one fact in finance more firmly fixed than another it was the  certainty that the unrestricted issue of paper money culminated in  disaster.   He added:  "I may paint out, moreover, that  we in Canada do not suffer- from.  Inadequate credit or inadequate  currency. Our banks welcome  borrowers to whom they can safely  tend, and as trustees of depositors  from whom their loaning resources  are derived, banks ought not to  lend on any other condition. So  far as our banking system, is concerned, it as well to remember that  not a single depositor has had to  wait for a moment \o get his money  from a Canadian bank, during the  past year, -while tens of thousands  of depositors in the United States  have had to wait in line, only to be  told finally that their- bank had  closed its doors. This fact is an  argument that will appeal to most  people."  ..

B.   a  in  BRITISH DEFICIT  RESULTS FROM  DEBT PAYMENT  Death Of Senator Ross  DIRECTOR OP SAJVY  London, Eng.���������Neville Chamberlain, Chancellor of the Exchequer,  told the House of Commons that payment of Great Britain's $95,550,000  debt instalment will involve a budgetary deficit equivalent to ������29,500,000.  Opening the debate on war debts  he was specific when he said the old  regime of war debts and reparations  interrupted by the Hoover morator-  ium "Can never be revived.1*.  The agreements reached in Lausanne ended the existing system of  reparations, he said, and "if the United States had been willing to send a  representative to the Lausanne conference a final settlement might have  been made on the spot."  The Chancellor argued insistently  that President HooVer by implication  recognized the: connection' * between  war debts and reparations because he  proposed that all inter-governmental  cLebts:be suspended during th^Tmcra-  torium.  "ItTis an important matter," he  said, "because it justified the statement in the recent British note that  the initiative taken by the European  powers at the Lausanne conference  was taken with -the cognizance ahd  approval of the United States government."  And Great Britain stands by the  policy of the clean slate and the famous. Balfour note. She does not want  to collect from her debtors any more  than.she has to pay her creditors.  But���������and there -were cheers as Mr.  Chamberlain added���������"They cannot  ���������xpect us to be content with less."  Complete remission of the debts owed  to the United Kingdom is dependent  on. complete remission by the United  States. If the., Anglo-American discussions resulted for instance in a final settlement by way of some fixed  capital sum "then our debtors must  come and discuss with us on -what  terms and to what extent they are  compelled to scale down their payments to us." ,t'~    ������������������":������������������'. ,;"r'  Default by Great Britain of further  payment Thursday; was out of the  question, the Chancellor declared. - It  Was First Member Elected In Yukon  To Fede:al House  ���������  Victoria; B.C.���������James Hamilton  Ross, Canadian senator and pioneer  of Moose Jaw, Sask., died at Victoria  recently.
