While this buying up of hank* wholesale ia an exciting and profit-ab'.e st-ime for our Eastern giants of f;PRi!ce. what are the people of Can-a;ia. from whom the hanks obtain all tneir powers and privileges, going to say about it? There bas been a stead-. i!y growing feeling of apprehension ion the part of the people of Western Canada over the banking system and methods of thla country, a feeling ot | apprehension which in recent year* I has resulted In outspoken antagonism | to the banks. This feeling haa found � expression in resolutions by almost 'ev�-ry representative body tn the f\Ve*t and by declarations in the plat-| forms of Western political convea-j tions. I Ho*-erer the people of the East may  view the steady creation of a powerful, | and ever more powerful, banking nio-, nopolv jn tbi3 Dominion, the men of | the West are absolutely opposed to i it. The movement for cheaper credit J for our firmer* upon which the three Prairie Governments have embarked Is an index to the feeling existing. ' The Castern bank magnates are flying : straight In the .teeth of an aroused . public sentiment In thla country. Like : the aristocrats of old feudal days they | are adding fuel to the flame* of pub-lie suspicion and ilfscontent,- and unless aa'retnely careful they will cre-, ste a situation which will end in their \ own undoing. And the Government authorities at Ottawa, whose approval must first be obtained before these amalgamations aud absorptions can take place, will be well advised to "go slow" before sanctioning another surh deal. Thla n nf a financial monopoly ha* i already been carried too far. carried to the point of danger to the interest* j and welfare of the public. to a sun baked provincial statesman, �ome worthy colleague ot Tartsria of Tarafcon."
