No Financial Depression, and
None Since the War Began.
- . A well-known correspondent of an
5j m Important Western dally paper recent-
ly made an extended visit to Western
Canada, and In summing up the re
sults, after going thoroughly Into con
ditions there, says there Is no financial
depression in Canada, nor has thcro
been anything of the sort since tho
war began. Anyone who has watched
tho barometer of trade, and seen the
bank clearings of tho different cities
grow nnd continue to grow will hnvo
arrived nt tho same conclusion. Tho
trade statistics reveal a like situation.
Tho progress that tho farmers nro
making is highly satisfactory. As tb'a
correspondent says: "It Is true there
have been adaptations to meet new
conditions, and taxes have been re
vised, and that a very largo burden of
ndded expense In many lines 1ms been
'assumed, but It has all been done me
thodically, carefully and with full re
gard for the resources to be called on.
"That this has been done fairly and
wisely Is proved by the present com
fortable financial position.
"With the exception of a restricted
area in the east, Canada Is not an in
dustrial country. Tho greater portion
of the Dominion must bo clnsscd as
agricultural area, with only an Infinl
teslmnl part of it fully developed.
"Lacking complete development, the
agricultural portion of Canada has
naturally placed Its main dependence
upon fewer resources than would bo
the case In the States. Even in peace
times, business would bo subject to
more frequent and wider fluctuations,
due to the narrower foundation upon
which It rests.
. "Thus, Canada has been able to
como up to tho war with efficiency and
sufficiency nnd to mnlntaln nnd even
advance its civilian activities.
"Canada's first clement of financial
strength lay in its branch bnnk sys
tem. This system has two great ad
vantages: it makes the financial re
sources of the Dominion fluid so that
supplies of capital can run quickly
from the high spots to tho low spots;
also, it places at the command of each
individual branch the combined re
sources or tho whole institution so
that thero Is an efficient safeguard
ngamst severe strain at any one
"Here in Winnipeg, the all-Canada
banking houses maintain big, strong
branches and, as elsewhero in tho
Dominion, these held to an attitude of
saneness and solidity that prevented
even tho start of any financial dis
That business generally Is now com
; ing strong on an oven keel is largely
due to tho absolute refusal of tho
banks, both branch and Independent,
to exhibit the slightest signs of ex
citement or npprehenslveness.
"For all Canada the savings bnnk
figures arc astonishing. Beginning with
1913, they are, for the fiscal year end'
ing March 31:

dlans have put away after paying the

"Prohibition has helped greatly In
keeping tho money supplies clrculnt

Tradesmen generally attribute a largo
1 part of tho good financial condition to
tho fact that tho booze bill has been
eliminated. Canada takes law enforce
ment with true British seriousness.
"Financially, as In every other re
spect, Canada has developed sufflclen
cy. She has dono It In spite of initial
condition which would not look prom
ising In the States and she has done it
In a big, strong way.
"One of tho best things wo did," snld
one of tho loading Winnipeg bankers
to me, "was to decide early in tho
game that wo simply would not borrow
