However,"  the company was evidently preparing 'for a long"* shutdown," !as the  pumps were removed from the Victoria shaft this week and all the  electric, wiring--in the mines taken  ^dorwn.  The shutdown of the Granby was  expected .for a number of weeks,  but the company has been able to  keep ih\oper.ation by running six of  the 'eight  .furnaces  at  the  Grand  Forks-'smelter.

Fire at about 1 o'clock Monday  morning destroyed the Finn hall.  The fire was discovered in the upper story of the building near the  roof, and in a few. minutes was in a  sheet of flames, destroying the entire structure of two stories besides  a cottage belonging to Tom Moore.  The fire department responded to  the alarm promptly, and while they,  worlked heroically, their efforts were  of no^ avail except to save nearby,  residences, which without their aid  would have been consumed.  The lower story of the building  was occupied by . several families  who lost nearly all their belongings.  The- Moore cottage withits contents  was entirely destroyed, which was  insured.  "   The Finn hall   was' erected about '  .two years ago,at a cost of $10,000,  and   was   intended   for   an   opera;  house,-vbut has  been  used   of late  only,,'asa place to   hold lodge���meet-'  iugs and entertainments of the Finn  society^, and for,; residence purposes.  *>, /Tlie &osis iW 'estxjma^ed^fitY'oyskf-;  is $l6,0b0 with $"3,000\ihsurance.   li  in   Iwhich , toehold   their  quarters  meetings.

Over sixty  delegates, besides grand lodge officers attended. Among the latter  were Past Chancellors H. J. Austin,  R. H. Gale, H. H. Hoffmeiser,  Vancouver; N. Binns, Trail; C. F.  Nelson, New Denver; J. Crossan,  Nanaimo; J. L.   Brown, Kamloops;  B. A. Brown, Sicamous; A. H. Fer-  gusson, New Westminster; S. R.  W. Irvine.

Pferdner, Victoria; G.I.G.H., E.  Reid, North Vancouver; G.O.G.,  George Chappie, of Grand Forks.  Grand lodge rank was conferred on  twenty-four past chancellors. Mayor  Robinson welcomed the delegates,  and also presented the Grand Chancellor with a large key painted in  the colors of the order, which remarked was the key of the city and  also of the hearts of the people.  Phoenix local lodge was represented by Albin Almstro'm, who  speaks very highly ofthe hospitality  ofthe committee in charge and the  citizens of Kamloops in general.  The Barrier at the Opera House  The Vancouver News-Advertiser has  the following to say of Rex Beach's  play, "The Barrier," which will be presented at the Phoenix Opera House  on Monday evening, May 29:  "Last   evening   at   the   Vancouver-  Opera House it was clearly  demonstrated that Rex E.  Beach, the novelist, loses nothing of his strength in  'The Barrier' dramatized.   How much  of the credit is due to Beach himself,  to Eugene Presbe, the dramatist, and  to  Miss Helen Barham,   resepetively.  it is difficult to decide, but certain it  is that Miss Barham as Necia, shattered very few of the conceptions entertained by last night's audience.   The  applause'was spontaneous and hearty  and of the type which demonstrates  an  intuitive appreciation of the fine  points of   an actor's act.   From  the  beginning of the second act Miss Ber-  ham got into touch with the audienre,  and maintained the standard to the  final curtain.   In casting her for the  part there was certainly no mistake  made. Mr. Mervale McGregor as Capt.  Burrell, the dashing young army officer, demonstrated a fine conception of  the part and played  with a restrained  vigor, which seemed to peculiarly fit  the character.    It is usual with a travelling company to find all but the principals very mediocre  actors to say the  least.    'The Barrier' is the exception,  which proves the rule.    The support  was excellent,  Mr.  W. M.  Chapman  and   George   A.  Cleveland,   as   John  Gale and Poleon Doret,  respectively,  being of exceptional merit. Rex Beach  and   Eugene    Presby   need   have no  doubt as to their laurels while such a  well-balanced company as  Vancouver  enjoyed last evening are acting as their  exponents.  The Smoker given last Saturday  night for the benefit of Chas. Shaw,  was a social as well as financial success, quite a sum being realized.  ��� Pw  m  m  H  '!  i  'IS  1,1  -I  ��� I  ' "?..  1' "V-J  -��� .ViSitST-ll  ���,:-5:-*S--ry-w  f,  ��M#-M  <s����ttM-��tt>15^*._*1L!!hlsi ���_���**���**.-??��-!1-. ���l ' �� "*  I *v  >,l.'>  'l ���>  *.

There has , been introduced at  Albany- N. Y., a bill which, will  practically drive from* JNew York  state any and all banks and bank-  ing institutions that are; not formed  under, or subject,-, to the% banking-  laws of; that state or of the tTiiited  States. This blow would fall heaviest on the leading*1 Canadian banks  maintaining- branches in New York  state. ���       ,,   \       ���.      <,','',,'"''  ** *���     �� *���*    l ���     '       k  Approximately $85,000,000 of  loans is out in New Ybrk^on call by  the .American.ag-encies of the^Caha-  dian banks.

". i *��� '    *, *  fected^by such a law-;' but;any bank-  ing- house doing business in corporate form which has a charter of any  state other than New York, would  likewise fall under the bane. .   -     ���  Endeavors have- been made to  ascertain if possible what interests  have been behind the introduction  of .this bill, but thus far without re-  suits.. _ It was\ihtroduced ,by one of  Tammany Hall's allies, and according to some of the banks which  would be affected, was undoubtedly  instigated by interests who have  met competition here in Canada.  In   discussing? the   situation, the  New York   manag-er of the largest  - Canadian   banks said:     "If such a  bill becomes   a  law,   and   there  is  every   indication   that   such will be  accomplished during the next week  or  two, do you   suppose  that  the  Dominion   government    will  stand  idly by and take no steps at  retaliating?    Certainly not.  When Canadians banking institutions have been  forbidden    to   do   business   iii   the  larg-est  state,   Canada   will   immediately  take  steps * to   drive  from  within her  borders every American  corporation doing business north of  the boundary, line.    - ^     ^  "We do not accept deposits in  New York the same as do the local  banks, being forbidden to do so by  law; we are   permitted  to  have  as  depositors only residents-outside of  the country, for instance, Cuba or  the,British West Indias.    '   ;.;  '"The Canadian banks as a whole  lend^-larg'e amounts of money jn  the Unite.d States- but as rates are  so low, there is-practically 'nothing  in it'for lis. We also do a foreig-n  exchange "business, but for . some  time past this has  been at low ebb.  "In addition to this, the Canadian;  banks have been large buyers���^of  American securities, and could the  various holdings , be ascertained,  they-would reveal important ownership in American 'railroad stocks  and bonds."
