Organizer .Sainsbury of Cranbrook, told the men of the action of tlie freight employees in other large centres throughout the system, and showed them that their last chance had come. He believed that if tlicy came out now the movement ail over tlie system would soon be strong enough to force the company to recognize their demands.

None viewed'^; more regretfully than Canadian bank--^ ers certain Canadians borrowing' the London market. Canadian eral and provincial goviernmentsii Icipalltles and transportation les must continue to be financed' and therefore Canadian bao^k'-^i^j^ sistently declined to become tbe'nied-ium for speculative isBuea. In ten ^ > | years, continued Mr. Taylor, Canac(a''^^| bad borrowed In London about twb5;|^l htindred a2;d five million sterllrig/v '"t with twenty mlUtons additional la-'y'!t| vested privately.

The financial condition and metb-., ' ods of the Canadian provinces con-'-tained nothing to Justify adverse crit- among twenty other cities. The pub-: % He flotations ot these latter have bawi <^ rapid, and greatly^ advertised, the M-sult being a much exaggerated-M��oC the real amount borrowed. In We opinion, he believed competition for, Canadian business was keen, and coU'^ seiiueutly Canadian cities reaped the benefit of the close scrutiny of ln< vestors interested In the 'Canadian \ market. Railway Leans Turning to railway seourtttes, he said these revealed but a small per- ' ccntage which could be classed a� doubtful, for the three great transcontinental lines accounted for nearly iilnety per cent, ot the aggregate Canadian railway borrowing. The case with which they financed themselves showed the confidence reposed In them. Regarding miscellaneous securities Mr. Taylor said there were some unwise Canadian financiers whose lack ' of knowietige of the London market was nioniimentni. They were perhaps ' desirous ot Blooring a straight course, ' but were unable to do ao through ignorance. Allied to them wei-c many ' unsound lOnglishiiien, ..... llegarding land speculation, ho thought that the speculators, who Included many members of tlie aristocracy, had bought Canadian laud both wisely and unwisely. If Canadians and Canadlan-AmorJcuns showed a readiness to profit at tho expense ot these gentlemen anxious to g�t rich : quick, tho result was not to be won-deved ut. A most serious setback lu realty values would not in itself ma- , torlully disturb the general fiuancialj stability of the Dominion, thanks to the fur-slghtod provision of the Bank- -ing Act of Canada, precluding CJan-'; adinn banks lending money on the se- n curity of real estnto invostments, A THE "QU'APPELLE"' NAME OF NEW HOTEL PJ'I';-^ Wliuilpog, Nov. 12.-llegiua'B nftn"' i.J." a, T, 1^ hotel, will bo known as iha" "Qu'Appellc," \,',V!: 44 4 0476 7208 ;
