MARCH 18, 1915  MONEY LYING IN THE BANKS  Thc "Patriotism ancl Production"-movement on  Ihc pari of thc Dominion Department ol' Agriculture was no doubt skirted Avilh lhc most sincere  desire on the pari-61' the Hon. Martin Burrell to  bring aboul a better condition for the agricultural  industry of Canada.    It was a patriotic move as  well, and as such it will undoubtedly accomplish  a great deal of good.   But there is a limit to the  efforts ol our agriculturists.   They cannot go beyond Iheir means lo open up new land or to plant  -more seed, all of which.requires an outlay of no  small amount of money, and if thc farmers have  nol thc money and cannot borrow i I they cannot  plant lhe acreage Ihcy would like to.   When thc  war opened,  the   Dominion   Government made  provision for increasing the circulation, by enabling thc banks of Canada to issue greenbacks  on the credit of the Dominion to the amouni of  the panic measure adopted by the banks. The  finincial statement of the banks of Canada shows  lhat they have over one billion dollars piled up  in the banks. Commercial loans have greatly decreased, and thc money in the bank vaults has  been piling up, at tremendous cost to the industrial development of thc Dominion.  in thc first five or six weeks of 1915 Canadian  industries and municipalities have been forced  lo borrow $37,000,000 from United Slates financial institutions. ������������������ This money would not have  been borrowed across thc line if it could have  been borrowed in Canada. At the same lime our  Canadian banks have been piling up millions in  Iheir "Vaults, until at the present lime they have  more lhan a billion dollars lhat they are withholding from circulation.  II seems to us that thc Dominion Government  would accomplish a great deal more in Ibis movement ior "Patriotism and Production" if some  real patriotism were preached lo thc banks of  Canada instead of to the farmers and business  men of Canada. If thc bonds and debentures of  Canadian municipalities and industries arc good  security for American financiers to lend us $37,-  000.000 upon since the first of January, they  ought to be good enough security for our Canadian financiers. If our Canadian bankers were  patriotic and loyal to Canada and the Empire,  they would not have one billion dollars lying idle  in the bank vaults today.  NEWSPAPER SPACE  When a newspaper tells its readers tbe merits  of advertising, or gives a little space to-,"shop  talk," there are some people cruel enough to say  that thc newspaper is talking for business. And  so it is. But not for thc dollar or two that the  "business" may bring. Thc newspaperman who  knows his business realizes more than anyone  else how important it is to the community to present a good business face. "He knows this cannot  be done if the merchants and businessmen of the  community arc indifferent to this important  phase of community life. Therefore,? the newspaper would not be faithful to the community if  it neglected to call attention to thc importance of  keeping up a good business face. Men outside of  newspaper offices and unacquainted with newspaper work, can not be expected to realize this.  The average businessman unaccustomed to looking upon this phase of it, thinks only of making a  dollar for every ten cents spent in advertising.  And it must be a direct return or he cannot sec  it coming. It is gratifying, therefore,'to find a  plain statement of thc case from a source not  affiliated with any newspaper. Mr. E. A. Moore,  an ollicer of the State Charities Aid Association  of New York, told thc Charities' Conference at  Philidclphia recently that the newspapers deserve  more credit lhan they commonly get.  "We," said Mr. Moore, speaking of those engaged in the various branches of organized  charily .in New York State, "do not ask the  stationer to contribute lhc paper we use. Wc do  not ask lhc owners of lhe buildings wc occupy to  contribute our quarters. Bul wc do ask the newspapers to do the equivalent by giving us space  which is monev to them."

The banks of Canada refused to  handle the emergency issue provided by the Dominion Government. Did the Dominion Government do as the American Government did? No.  The emergency currency was nol put in circulation. It is nol in circulation today. Furthermore,  the hanks of Canada have insisted upon drawing  in the-circulation medium Ihey had out when  limes were normal. In lhis respect the banks of  Canada have been very patriotic���������������������������to themselves.  But Ihe counlry and the people have been made  to sull'er. Perhaps in lhc larger manufacturing  centres of Eastern Canada, the. restricted circulation has not been so seriously felt, bul in thc less  developed sections of the Northwest and the West  communities have been drained lo lhc limit of  endurance, and municipalities throughout these  sections are on lhe verge of bankruptcy. No advances will be made by the banks and municipal-  ilies have been for months unable lo pay their  bills.

"fl seems clear lo us that if thc  navy receives a general order to  arrest all neutral shipping on suspicion of German origin or destination for their cargoes, our prize  f'ourt and our foreign office will not  lead uneventful lives." The Nation  says it considers thc Allies can  tighten the existing siege of German  coasts without setting up a siege  against neutral nations or stopping  trade "which we do not declare to  be illegal, or against which Ave do  not take measures that international  law  requires neutrals  to  respect."

' The annual meeting of the Enderby Growers' Association, held  last Saturday afternoon in K. of  P. Hall was well attended, and  lhe spirit of the meeting was of  thc best.   II showed conclusively  lhal thc co-operative movement  lias at lasl come lo stay, and that  thc growers of this district arc  .going to hang together, despite  thc hardships and thc difficulties  that all now realise must be met  and overcome on thc road to  success.     Thc spirit of those in  attendance was not one of ovcr-  coniidcncc, nor of sweet contentment. ���������������������������   Thc   past   year,   while  showing a balance on the right  side of thc ledger for thc Association, has not been one of satisfactory prices to tlie individual  growers.   Far from it".   But all  seemed to.realise that Manager  Dickson and thc board of directors had handled the,business as  profitably as possible for them  and without unnecessary loss.

As  chaimian,^JSIr.^_Little__thanJicd  thc members of the board on  behalf of the association mem-  lDers for their good work of the  past season, and gave well-merited praise lo Mr. Dickson for his  able management. While hc did  not pretend to say that the prices received by the growers had  been satisfactory, hc believed  the association had made very  pose of the association to enter  into competition with the regular merchants. .They had been  approached by others handling  feed in an effort lo induce them  to advance lhc prices, but thc  association had refused to entertain any such proposition. All  they want lo do is to keep the  prices down to a reasonable living price, without injury to anyone. Their policy is one of constructive effort,, not destructive.  Thc election of lhc board of  directors for 1915 was then proceeded wilh. Result: Messrs.  Little, Anderson, Forster, Davics  Turner and Emeny.  Mr. Knight, accountant of the  Bank of Montreal, was elected  auditor.  This concluded the regular  business and Mr. Robertson,  manager of thc Central Selling  Agency, was called, upon to give  such information as he had in  hand with regard to the past  season's. operations and also to  lay down the policy for the approaching season.  Mr. Robertson congratulated  the Enderby association on-the  advancement made the past season. He said though the amount  of business handled at this point  was comparatively small, yet it  was gratifying to know that the  net result showed a balance on  the right side. Thc general advance made here was quite as  satisfactory as had been made at  any point where there was an  affiliated organization.  He recited thc experience of  the selling-organization since it  was established two years-ago.  He thought then ��������������������������� that all that  would be necessary was for him  to travel up and down the valley  telling of the advantages bfyeef  operation and ��������������������������� the growers  would cheerfully*'' organize and  work together. ," The past two  years' experience had convinced  him that the gospel of co-operation was as difficult to make pcor  pie take advantage of as that  other great gospel. It was here  a little and there a,Utile; by slow  degrees will it be accepted.,  He had received a great surprise at thc recent meeting of  Vernon association, where 150  growers were gathered, and not  a dissenting voice had been  raised, either to thc past season's  operations, unsatisfactory as  they had been, or to thc proposed new policy for 1915.  low prices had hit the growers  so hard was bcause at the opening of the season Ihcy had anticipated so much larger profits.  In reality our growers got as  good prices'as the growers of the  fruit centres of Washington.  At thc very commencement of  thc shipping, just when thc soft  fruits were ready to move, lhc  war broke, and immediately the  housewives of thc Northwest  began to think seriously before  buying. The price of sugar went  up, and, though every effort was  made by the fruit houses to increase thc demand for fruit by  encouraging early preserving,  thc effort was not successful.  Thc jobber wouldn't buy because tlie retailer wouldn't buy,  and thc retailer wouldn't buy because thc people wouldn't buy.  There was no demand, and no  money to pay for the fruit if il  were put out. Our soft fruits  had lo be moved, and wc had to  let them go on a low market.  vThc local.competition, in selling Okanagan 'fruits thc past  season had been a serious obstacle in the way of belter prices  for thc growers. Fruit from thc  various points in the Valley had  to go into the market in competition with other fruit from thc  same section. Hc.cited one instance where Mcintosh Reds  were started at $1.50 per box���������������������������  a very fair price. Another shipper offered thc same variety of  apples at $1.35; a further reduction was made to $1.25, and the  jobbers finally bought them at  $i.l0abox.   .  One Northwest buyer wrote  him in these words: "Why don't  you get together out there. Wc  don't care what wc have to pay  so long as.we know.our competitors don't buy foiy less." ,- "  :v.Another_instance was cited iii  which these apples .were offered  arid sold-by a* Valley' shipper \at  90c a box in carload lots. At tlie  same time and to the same-jobber," the Central sold thc: same  variety-of-apples"-"at- $1.05 a box..  Central sold. 15 carlaods of  crab apples at $1.10 a'.crate. At  the same lime a competitor in  thc Vernon district had to dump  12 carloads after offering them  at 90c.  Fresh Meats  If you want prime, fresh meats, we  have them.

In spite  of this thc directors were able to  report a balance of $67 on hand  on thc season's operations, after  cleaning up lhe deficit of $108  on last season's business. Besides this they had also reduced  the organization costs from $60  to $30, and had very few bad  debts and no losses.  "But look at what we have  had to pay for feed, to enable the  association to make this showing," some might say. Those  members forget what the price  of feed would be if the association was not handling feed at all.  Some will say that there is no  advantage in joining the association as they can buy as cheap  outside "of the association as in  it, and, while this may be quite  true, they forget what the association has done for them in  bringing down the prices.

His  critics seemed to forget that hc  was only carrying out thc general policy endorsed by the men  elected as directors. He was in  their employ and had to submit  for their approval any policy to  be adopted before it could be put  into operation.

Wc have seen, in thc case  of Belgium, how neutrality is  respected,,, nowadays,.... and. jlhc^  Turk at any rate, was several degrees stronger than a scrap of  paper.  "The neutralization of the  straits or the handing of them  over to a minor power���������������������������for example, Bulgaria���������������������������only means  lhat Russia would be cut off  from the sea on the outbreak of  war and would probably have  enemy warships at work around  lhc Black Sea coast line.  "This war is a war waged in  common by lhc three Allies.  When it is ended wc must not  enquire who has dealt Germany  the heaviest blows or who inllic-  Icd on her lhe last defeat; who  has enabled Belgium lo be restored, or who has stood the  main attack of thc Turkish  army. Nor, on lhe olher hand,  must the Allies raise the question of who forced the Dardanelles.  "Let the present war restore  the territorial integrity of  France., Let England be rewarded for her hcrioc efforts at  lhc cost of Germany and Turkey  But let thc vital interests of  Russia also be secured."
