The conference of teachers atlj trustees, to be held at Edmonton, on March 5, and called at the instance ol the Department of Education, shov.s the desire of tho Minister of Kiiucation to recognize the TcachcH' Alliance, in the willingness expressed to discuss in amicable fashion mat- ters in which the teachers and trus- tees are at variance, and so to bring about a better understanding. The calling of a round table confer between teachers and trustees, In that the plan has emanated from the Department of Education, should serve to allay anything of the appre- hension that the Minister holds any Btuhboru views in respect to the -U- liance, in refusing it the j to whifh it considers it is entitled. At' I a news despatch from lltomarek. N. P., I the capital of the State, with rasped to tho affairs of the Hank of North Dakota. An under, according to tho message, had beun made by tho Industrial Commission providing that payment should be stopped on all cheques drawn by the State Treasur- er issued to townships, counties and cities, aul all townships' treasurer's cheaues with the exception of funds for school and educational institu- tions, penal and charitable institu- tions and the cheques ot those county 1 treasurers who are depositing all in- i coming funds in tto liank of North Ditkot.i. The I'heques on which pay- ment is thus refused be registered ami paid off with interest in rotation as funds are obtainable. In a second part of the order, the Bank is instructed to send out collec- tors to collect from some two hundred private banks all funds owing to tho State Bank. being nntstand- ing in past due loans. Many of the private banks face suspension, accord- ing to the report, the private bankers having refused to honor cheques drawn by the State the col- lectors are to report back to the State Bank Examiner who has power to suspend and close the banks if they are insolvent. It is thus evident that the severe stringency which has prevail- ed for some time In North Dakota is not yet relieved, and that the State Bank, which was started by the Non- Partisau League as a part of their A.

At tte recent elections a bill was put forward and passed by the electors whfch took away from the Bank its right in the sole depositary of public funds. L'ntll this time all municipal authorit- ies, towns, cities, and so -u were compelled to do their business with towards reconciliation in relations which it must appear have needlessly sought to be estranged. This spirit of conciliation on the part ot the Min- ister should have its beneficial effect. The Herald has had reason to de- plore the recent ink-slingins cam- paign which took place in tl.e press lhe state' ban'k Now under tlje lmend. ed law, they can aeposit their funds between the officials of the Teachers' Alliance and the Department of Edu- cation, in that it considered it was prejudicial to the welfare and the in- terests of education as a whole. The altitude ot the Minister in calling the conference should tend to remove the possibility of any such future occur- rence, and provides that matters of variance may calmly and coolly be discussed.. In the spirit in which the' in any bank they please.

The Senate of the State of Arkan- sas has just passed, .without a dissent- lug vote, a bill making robbery with arms a capital offence and prescrib- ing the same penalties for violations in the manner' in which the bank was organized the Banner In which it is managed. It is avowedly an instrumeat of the non-partisan leaguera anjLthe Industrial Commis- sion comprWes among its members Governor Lynn J. Frazier, Attorney- General William Lemke, J. N. Hagen and others. Tueir policy has been to use the funds accumulated by depos- its to finance the various schemes favored by the policy ot the Non-Par- tisan Originally the ptate Bank was to have been financed by as are. assessed for murder in the first j bonds, but these could not be sold, or life impria-! and the bank is therefore in the extra- ordinary position ot operating without capital, leaving the depositors without any reserves in case of a depreciation in the value of the assets held by the bank. This alone is sufficient to deter onment. The bill aa amended since its Introduction by Senator W. A. Jack- son applies to robbery of business houses, residences and highway rob- bery. In forwarding us from the Kansas City Ktar, a reader suggests that in view of the occur- rence ot incidents such as the train hold-up at Sentinel it would be well that a similar sentence under similar conditions be inserted in the Crimin- al of Canada. In what robberies with firearms frequently end in, there Is a good deal of point in the sugges- tion. Punishments in such cases, vr'th the tragedies they lead to, cannot be too severely dealt The' punishment may appear too drastic, but anything of this consider- ation becomes removed in the know- ledge that tho very carrying of fire- Ih" the case of robberies betok- ens the. intent to murdgr on the part of those who carry them. is often silent, as in calm, half, At one time "fault" was pro- 2.

Wp have referred to the experience Of the State Bank of North Dakota in what-tt-has resulted in. It is not only an experience of nationalization of banlcins so far as it regarded the Non-Purtisan League, but, likewise, an experiment in Stata Socialism, with disastrous consequences. Not only did the Bank come to-grief but others in the State through neglect- ing the one fundamental rule in the bcnldng business in resuocjt to loans, 'that they should bo of working or floating capital, and not of fixed cap ttal.

It for safe The lack of a centralized banking system has involved many of the smaller hanks In the State in difficulty, and the newspapers last month record- ed the suspension or failures of some- thing over a dozen of them, every one causing loss and suffering to innocent depositors. The reason given was that tho banks that loaned out to farmers on farm products had rendered tha security less valuable than tnc amount of the loan. To this condition the. plight of the State Bank is to Ire added and we can thus nee how badly our friends across the linn have fared in consequence of .a defective banking Latest reports are to tho effect that officials are trying to raise in bonds to relieve the bank- Ing situation, and that bankers who are negotiating with a view to taking up the bonds arc Insisting that tho State Bank of North Dakota be liqui- dated, the powers of tho Industrial Commianlon curtailed and the "indus- trial program" of the non-partisan administration bo abandoned.

During the remain- der of the day, debate on the address followed its usual course. Dr. Belind (Beauce) criticized the prime minis- ter's tender compassion for the west In declining to have an election be- fore redistribution. Dr. Cowau, (Re- gian) held that Mr. King had found his western supporters dwindling and was therefore anxious to precipitate an election.
