Sif- ton spoilt'. very on .ilfiftu'ts in Canada's banking system in an address last Lelore Edmon- ton audience. Me took as his subject, "Lfisous of the war." One of these was connected with the hanking system of Canada. As loin; as he could remember, bank management and direcunites had pleaded as an excuse for sending home investments away into foreign countries that they could hast ly he withdrawn in case of crisis upsctt ng.homo conditions. The war had proved the ridiculousness of this absurd contention oi eminent finan- ciers for t'.ie last forty years. When the crisis did come the ban's s went into the foveign mar-ets to realize on tlu-ir in e'trrents and did they get Not the money, rcstrad, they recrhed clearing house certificates'and the foreign countries refused them their cash, because t! cy themselves were short. So the band's had to come bne'.v and draw in their Canadian credits, il ready limited, and there'uy cripple home develop- ment. This lesson frcni the war will have an important effect upon finan- cial history in Canada. It will force a readjustment of business methods followed by the banks. Another fiscal feature of the is found ia the fuot that since its coi'.itwnccmeiit deposits in Canadian banks have inerc-asM by The hanks so much mrney un luuui that theytare seriously consid- ering dropping interest rates on tic- posits from S to Sft per cent.

With liiis' money in. hand the Canadian ImnVs arc forcing gilt edg- ed Canadian spcurities into foreign markets forcing turm to pay six and vcr cent, for mousy. Mr. Sifton was quite emphatic in his statement that Canadian banks are not doing their duty by Canada. Smaller community bauks, with uo branches, are surely coming, he said- It will not bo a 'political for in the past both political parties ,1 have been equally remiss in handling the banking system. The country has never had a nnuistc.r of finance with sufficient backbone to light tho banks, for the reason that the banks arts a powerful ally for a minister of fin- ance. If he is friendly with them he can out and secure from one to ten millions or more on a minute's notice to him over temporary difficulties, but the time is approach- ing wlirn public opinion will become so strong thai public interests will over-ride the personal convenience of ministers of limince nnd force u re- adjustment of conditions. Thfl smaller hank will 'become u reality. It will be conducted by com- munity interests in 'lie interests of the community, lu this connection Mr. Sifton pointed 'Mil, that such banks been possible in the last few years many of the vil.uablo citutms who have pulled up their.stakes and moved to nt-her centres would havu remained nt home and financed banks themselves. There were many could liiiaiwe a bank capital, but none wouU! throw tti.s capital into a big machine in which! hi' would exercise no control. Tho country, he continued, will .ret along in spite of the bants of Can- ada.

The introduction oi Icelandic as an option is made this year, and applies both to the junior matriculation, which admits to the first year of the University, and to the senior matriculation, which ad- mits its holder to the second year. President Murray stated that Icelan- dic had been made an option for ma- triculation with the idea of att- t- ing Icelandic "students into the .d- versity work, the fact that the University cf Manitoba, had made similar provision had .influenced the authorities in Saskatchewan.
