In the meeting w.liich was held at  the head office of the Bank, 5 Grace--  church St., London, on March 4th at  which the above financial statement  was presented, Mi.O. W. Tomkinson  presided and Mr. A. G. Wallis acted  as secretary.  The chairman after taking the statement and also the report of the directors as read, went into a. detailed explanation and analysis of the balance  sheet. He pointed out the increase in  the reserve fund which is now ������600,-  000 and also the. substantial increase in  the deposits and the proportion of cash  to immediate'liabilities' was 33 per  cent. The profits for the year including the amount which has been carried  to reserve, amounted to ������115,790 14s.  9d. of which ; ������40,000 was devoted to  paying a dividend of 40s per share,  ���������������80,000 to reserve, ������15,000 to bank  premises account, and -������7,000 to payment of a bonus'of 5% to the bank  staff, leaving, a balance of ������19,201 7s  lid.  The new premises at Moutreal and  Edmonton were referred to and correction was made to  the erroneous re  port that the latter was to be a tan-  storey building. He explained, however, that the new Edmonton office  was to be a four-storey building including the basement with the bank's  offices taking up one entire floor and  two Moors above containing, offices.  The resignation of Mr. Stikenian, the  general manager, was referred to and  a tribute paid to his ability and worth  during a period of 40 years in the service of the bank. His successor, Mr.  H. B. MacKenzie, who he said had the  entire confidence of the Court and has  proven his worth and ability in a-.long  connection with the.bank and its affairs still left the bank in competent  hands. The trade conditions: in Canada during the year were reviewed by  him in a thorough' manner and a ."judicious mean between extreme optimism  arid over-cautiousness was maintained.  Particularly on the subject of new  capital creations which the British investor was being asked to finance, was  he illuminating. The prospects for  the present year based on the outlook  for agriculture were in his opinion  bright for  various reasons   which  he  pointed out. The growth of Canada's  population and the steady tide of immigration which was continually pour  ing in meant continued expansion and  the demand for capital.  Mr. Theodore Ellis Williams traversed asseiitingly much of the ground  covered by the chairman and in addition took a rather serious view of the  probable effects of the new Canadian  Bank Act." He also thought that the.  province of Alberta was not getting  the .number, of branches which its ex  pansion would warrant.  The chairman assured him that tlie  -progress of Alberta- was being carefully watched by the bank, hut the  bank found so many openings for new  branches in a country whose expansion was so widespread as that of Canada, and' instead of trying to cover it  all the situation became one of picking  out the most favorable regardless of  the province in which the point might  be situated. As for the new Bank  Act it had been carefully studied by  the officials of the Bank and they failed to see in it anything prejudicial to  the interests of the bank.  LOCAL NEWS  P. W.

Its engines have the push in them to  send the car anywhere, and grades are  negotiated with ease .and certainty.  The horn is not so airy or melodious  as the Welbyhorn on which Joe Goodwin played breezy symphonies but it  will do. The carrying capacity will  enable it to take through large loads  and the passenger who has not been  careful enough lo secure his seat beforehand will be in less danger of being left behind.  Hedley basebalk-rs have organized  for the season but it is not known yet  whether there will be any new talent  on the job or the same old bunch. J.  A. Kaitor is captain of the team and  H. G. Freeman secretary-treasurer.  In a camp where the population is  more or less floating and men are  coining and going it is hard luck if a  phenotn. should not drift along once  in a while but they don't i>eein to come.  Both players and onlookers should cut  out this abominable habit of rooting  and bully-ragging. That is what mars  the game.  This year will go down in history as  having the coldest Easter ever experienced in the country. The year 1006  had   an , exceptionally   cold spell  in  March after an exceedingly mild winter but the cold came earlier on in the  month that year and it did not extend  over nearly so long a spell as this year.  Easter that year was on April loth  and the cold spell that year occurred  in the week ending March 17th. In  Hedley it touched even zero on the  18th March and that was the only date  upon which it got that low all that  winter.  Messrs. J. A. Brown. It. M. Carniichael and Geo. Emory were among  tlie Keremeosians who accompanied  Tweddle's car up on Sunday. They  only intended goingas far as Tweddle's  ranch when they set out but the going  was bo good and the car running so  fine that the temptation to go through  was too strong.  Plowing which was in full progress  ten days ago came to an abrupt termination a few days later when the  giound hardened up again as tight as  afiddlestting. There was practically no  vegetation in the soil up to that time  although some of the lawns were beginning to look quite green and hence  little damage would be done. As frost  is credited with lending a mellowing  effect, to the soil there should ba nothing wrong with counting on an additional mellowness from the extra  freezing in this case. Whether any  damage has been done to fruit trees  has not yet been learned.  METEOROLOGICAL.  The following are the readings showing temperature, etc., for the week  ending Mar. 15, 1913:  MINE.

Scarcely a town or city west  and north of Toronto escaped from  damage and the destruction was greater in some than in others.  Hamilton appears to hern hardest  hit of the cities and North Buy and  Cobalt of the towns, but in the counties of Bruce and Grey the storm was  very seveie. In the former county  the towns of Southampton and, Paisley suffered most, and in Grey, Owen  Sound and Durham. Much damage  was done in Southampton and at Paisley one of the freakiest occurrences of (,  all took place in the unroofing of  Knox-chinch, the roof being carried  for a quarter of a mile sailing through  the air like an aeroplane. The building was a massive barn-like brick  structure, side walls and ends being  re-inforced at 15 or 20 feet intervals  with heavy square brick pill-us built  into the wall and the brickwork was  carried up on the gables   to the ridge.  At Cobalt the Roman Catholic  church was blown down while service  was in progress. At'St. Catharines a  lofty church spire was blown down.  North Bay and Sudbury had numerous  buildings wrecked. At Sturgeon Falls  one fatality and some serious bodily  injuries resulted.   ' -���������������-���������"   COPPER, TIN AND LEAD  Prices and Production���������British Columbia *  Ores���������Tariff, Freight, etc.  Monetary Times  Tlie total production of copper in  Canada in-1911, estimated on the basis  of smelter recovery from ores treated,  was 55,01S,011 pounds, which at the  average price of copper for the year in  New York, 12.370 cents per pound,  would be worth $G,SS0,938.  The copper production in 1910, compiled on ii similar basis, was estimated  at 55,602,369 pounds, showing a slight-  decrease in production in 1911. The  average New York price for copper in  1910 was. 12.73S cents, the decrease in  price being 0.302 cents  or 2.S per cent.  LOW GKAOIi ORK IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  In British Columbia, the copper production is -mainly derived from ores  carrying a very low content of copper  metal. In the smelting of these ores  the copper losses in slag are quite considerable, reaching as high, in some  cases, as 25 per cent, or more, of the  copper content of the ore, says a. recent report prepared by Mr. Cosmo T.  Cart-wright, B. Sc, of thu department  of mines. With ores of this character  there is, therefore, a wide difference  between the copper content of ore  shipped from the mine and the copper  metal recovered by the smelters.  Tin ores have not yet been found in  sufficient quantities in Canada to be  of economic importance.  AVERAGE PRICE AT MONTREAL  The 1911 output of lead was almost entirely from the mines of British Columbia, and a considerable decrease is shown, the production being  23.784.909 pounds in that year, against  32,9S7,508 for 1910. A small shipment  was made from Quebec, but in regard  to this figures are not obtainable.  In valuing the. lead production for  1011, the average price per pound at  Montreal has been used. The New  York market is practically closed to  Canadian lead by high tariff', and to  the London market price must be  added the freight, etc., to reach the  Canadian market. The price at Montreal or Toronto is lower than that at  New York, and higher than that at  London, and is probably a more equitable valuation to place upon the Canadian production.  CARD OF THANKS  The Hospital Board wish to publicly  thank Mrs. Allison for her liberal  donation of books for the benefit of  the hospital, Mrs. S. L.

Australia and   New  Zealand   has   in  every    instance   gone   ahead   of   us.  When   the   war  broke  out in   South  Africa the  New South Wales Lancers  were ou   board the   transport ship en-  route  for the  front .before the  Canadian   government. with   Sir. Wilfrid  Laurier  at its  head could  be induced  to  take any  step for sending a Canadian    contingent.      Indeed   at   first,  Laurier  declared  flatly that no Canadian  force could  be sent,   as it would  be unconstitutional,  and  it was  not  until the indignation mass meeting of  the  people of Toronto in  Massie Hall  forced his hand and compelled him to  climb  down  from -his  lofty  perch of  constitutionalism    that   Canada   was  permitted to carry out her own wishes  ��������� in the matter.    Here it is not only the  same   thing over  again but worse, in  connection   with aid  to the one existing navy which can be of any present  effect in   the defence of the empire at  her  most  vital   point;  for  while   the  Canadian parliament is engaged in an  unseemly    wrangle   about   Canada's  part,   the first  warship given by little  New Zealand  has been built and is on  her way to New Zealand to be inspected by the  people who paid the money  for  the   building of her.    Both  New  Zealand and Australia have endeavored   lo   do   something  worthy  of  the  positions  they  occupy   in the ciiipii":1;  Malaysia  that is a   mere pawn on the  hoard in comparison with Canada, has  not  wrangled   nor   haggled a   single  hour over her handsome contribution,  and   India  and South  Africa, are already   taking  steps to  go  about it in  exactly  the same  way as Mr. Borden  has done,   but Canada,   poor Canada,  at  Mr.   Laurier's  dictation,   is  busily  engaged   making  a, laughing stock of  herself.     Now  our  friends  the  Grits  may take   offence at the name colony  and   claim   that Canada is something  better   than   a  colony.    In  some respects we  admit she is, or seems  to lie  advanced  a  step  in   the  direction  of  nationhood as*  distinguished from the  status of what is  commonly accepted  in the  name colony,   but even   in this  respect  Australia,  went ahead   of us,  The financial statement of the Bank  of 13. N.'A. and   the 'summary  of   the  chairman's address'-appearing -iii   ibis  issue   will afford   further evidence  of  why   this  solid old   institution   which  has now for seventy seven years   been  bearing its share in   the   work   of  empire  building,  in   this  country,  is  so  strong in the confidence'" of the public.  Although the head office of  the bank  is in England there is no head office of  any of our banks that is butter posted  on the trade conditions   prevailing  in  Canada,    than   they   are.      Neither  is  there any bank   that is more  alert  in  spying (iiitwew openings for profitable  business:.; in     the   many   new   towns  springing  up through the west.  , It is  true  the  institution is conservatively  managed   and kite fliers and others of  that class who are.laoking for an easy  mark do not find it  very sympathetic,  but  those   who want   business accommodation   on business lines  and in accord    with   pound   banking    practice  never   have  cause to   complain.    Perhaps   the   feature  which will   interest  the. public  most at the present time is  the  attitude  of the  Bank of B. N. A.  towards  tlie  proposed  new Canadian  Bank Act being  introduced at Ottawa  by   the   Minister  of  Fnance.     While  many   of the other banks  were strenuously opposing- certain   features of  the new act, and particularly in reference to the bank audit,   this bank was  saying nothing,  and now we have the  declaration from head office that they  are  perfectly satisfied   with it.    As a  matter of fact  they have always employed  a  method of  bank  inspection  quite  in   line with   the  new act and  even  in advance of it. and it is also a  notable  fact  that in   the long list of  bank-defalcations which so frequently  appear in the public prints it is a very  rare thing that employees of this bank  ever figure in it.

O you shop in a brisk, active store, or in a dull  store?  [U:  [Ml  ���������Il  Mi  HI  Advertising makes bright stores. Failure to advertise goes hand in hand with dullness and stagnation.  m  m  m  m  m  [Ml  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  In asking qualified  voters of British  Columbia to see that they do not neglect to get their names,on the list, we  wish  to point out that those who are  urging  an  immediate  election as the  cause of the registration either do not  know what they are talking about or  they are wilfully trying to mislead,for  there  is not the  slightest  probability  of an  election   in  this province  this  year  nor for  three more  years.    The  naval question is not going to precipitate any election,   for the bill at present before  the House meets with the  wishes of the people of Canada and is  going to  be passed during die present  session   in  spite  of the  pusillanimous  conduct  of those  who  are opposing.  The government are  fresh  from  the  people  and  they are not  taking any  step at variance with   what tlie people  were led lo expect from grounds that  they   previously  held.     Furthermore  the  opposition   have   already  said by  their votes in the House that they assent to both   the principle  of the  bill  and   the amount, so   why should they  want to  obstruct or force an election?  13y all means  get mi. the  voters'   list i 0=1  and do so in time for  the present i-i>vi-' [01-0  sion.     There will be  several other op-; [QhJ  porta ni ties  to get on   the.  list  before  the  need   to   use   them   comes  about,  m  m  Advertising brushes1 away cobwebs and dust, smartens shop  windows, quickens the intelligence of salesmen, and lets in the  sunlight.  Advertising makes the merchant think of you-���������of your  wants and needs; makes him  anxious to serve you to your  liking and advantage.  Advertising keeps stock from  having birthdays.  Advertising acquaints you with,  new things, and so brightens  your home, your life, your person.  Advertising keeps a business  from growing lazy and stupid.  Advertising injects good red blood  into the arteries of a business, and  keops it healthful and active.  W  Shop wherei.your wants and  neecls are uppermost in the mind  of the merchant. Shop in the  store which reflects you, which  you dominate. Shop where  your money returns to you in  better goods, better values, better service.  Shun the shop that is dumb  and dark and dreary; keep away  from the shop that never speaks  to you, never smiles at you,  never bothers about you.  Reward by your custom the  merchant who lives to serve you,  and who is doing his utmost to  build up this community; who  takes you into his confidence by  means of advertisements in your  local newspapers.

[Ml , 1  IIIIDI^^ THE HEDLEY GAZETTE MAR 27, 1913.  Town and District.  Miss Annie Innis returned to Hedley  ���������oil Monday, and is stopping, with Mrs.  JMcEwen.  Those who get on the voters' list  this time will be on a live list and not  mixed up with a lot of dead ones.  11. II. Messenger is taking an interest with E. E. Burr in a blacksmith  and cai i-iage business in Princeton.  The weather has been a trifle too  ���������cold for local anglers to take advantage of the ten days earlier this year.  As yet we have not heard of any big  strings being taken.  Statements have frequently been  made lion; in the hu������t fortnight to the  effect that the location of the K. V.  lines in the vicinity of Princeton was  still an unsettled question with the  probability tlr.it the road would go in  there cm a spur down One a ;.  Miss McOalfrey, teacher in tin; public school, is spending the holidays in  Princeton. Mr. Hill, principal of the  .high school, is holding the fort in  Hedley and incidentally is getting a  little golf and baseball on the side.  The school  re-opens on  Monday next.  Only a few more days to get on the  voters' list at the present revision. All  ���������applications must be in Fairview on  April 7th and as the mail is not very  ���������direct between here and Fairview it  would be unwise to delay posting the  application, in Hedley much beyond  the first of the month.  Mr'. J H.- Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V. V. & E., was up the line last  week. He is quoted as expressing the  opinion that the V. V. <fc E. will go  through to the coast on its own track  and that the talk of sharing running  powers with the Kettle Valley has not  amounted to anything.  There  has been  no perceptible rise  iii, the streams  as yet,   and   with the  large quantity of snow in the  mountains  this  year,   if the  weather does  ,,   not  warm  uppretty soon to  run off  ��������� some of the surplus moisture lower  ���������down before"hot weather comes to be-  .gin melting on the higher levels, there  . will likely be some very high water.  Mr. arid Mrs. Will Baxter and children  who  spent  the  winter  with Mr.  and  Mrs.   Brass   in  Hedley,   left   for  their home in  Moosejaw on Tuesday.  They are going by  way of the Okanagan.    Mr. Baxter's health which was  ' in  a rather  bad  way  when   he came  last fall has improved very much.  Messrs. Boeing & Brass do not know  yet when they will be able to make a  ���������start on the bridge over the Tulaineen  which they will build for the Provincial government at Granite Creek.  ' Inability of the V. V. & E. and K. V.  to come to an agreement as to the location of their lines is the cause of the  delay, for until that is settled the government engineer cannot select the  proper site fo������- the bridge.  With exception of one or two holes  that were still a bit sloppy the links  were in good shape for play on Good  Friday, Saturday and Easter Monday.  . It will be well for members to keep off  any of the greens or the fairway  where the ground is soft enough to  leave deep foot-prints. The horses  and cattle can be counted on making  havoc enough in that way without  adding any human footprints to make  things any woise.  Mrs. Thain, who was formerly the  whole staff in Hedley but now of the  teaching staff in Penticton, is spending the holidays with friends in Hedley and having a good time among old  acquaintances. She has not been able  . to indulge in the luxury of golf in  Penticton but is in high hopes that  that disability will soon terminate as  steps are being taken to organize a  club and prepare links.  Mr. J. G. Davie, printer, who spent  the winter on the Gazette stall" and  left here a little over a fortnight ago,  is bringing out a paper of his own at  Mis-don City, B. 0. His paper will be  known as the "Property Gazette" and  will not be conducted as the ordinaly  country paper but will specialize' in  certain lines. Mr. Davie bus been engaged in the printing business since  early boyhood when as a bit laddie he  began setting type in his father's print  shop in Edinburgh, and was a full-  fledged experienced .-journeyman before be came to Canada seventeen  years ago, with experience in some of  the leading printing establishments in  the Scotch metropolis. That he will  make good in his present venture goes  without saying, for he is not likely to  launch out into any venture without  fully studying the conditions to be met  with. The first number will be out  this week. The Gazette wishes the  new Gazette an abundant'measure of  success.  A dance was held in Fraternity hall  on Monday night 'in honor of Mrs.  Thain and to help give her. a good  time during her visit. As a post lent  en function it was a marked success  and from the large number who'.attended it might be. inferred that lied  leyites were, all good church people  who had abstained from ''voluptuous  waltz" during the long -10 days and  were then ripe for a fling, highland or  lowland. The music-was pronounced  O. K.  Old-timers in the Similkanieen will  be very sorry to Irani that their old  neighbor, Mi-. Barringion Price, who  went back to England some years ago  is in very poor health at present. He  recently underwent examination under the x ray for a growth which has  formed near the heart and the surgeons arrived at the decision that it  would be fatal to operate upon it. Mr.  Price was one of the very earliest settlers in the- Similkameen valley where  he and his partner, Mr. Henry Nicholson, owned the land that was afterwards held by Mr. Coulthard and is  now part of the holding of the Keremeos Land Company.

The old town of Rock Creek lias improved very much in late years and  the old town at the mouth of the  creek is fast: assuming an air .of importance and prosperity that helps to  bring back to mind the earlier days of  the first placer excitement. The.Rock  Creek hotel is now owned by T. Hansen who has greatly improved it and a  live town is springing up around it.  There is already a large store, barber  shop, blacksmith shop, public hall and  othernew buildings. The K.
