The Winding Ur.—ln responding to a toast in Southland the other evening, one speaker said that in several parts of the colony it was the opinion of people that the banks were to be blamed for the dull times, but to this he took exception. The reason was not far to seek. Such a complaint was not made in a district where the farmer kept to a fair and legitimate business, and did not launch out into speculations regardless of consequences. In other places he had visited people were kept afloat with a lot of bills, and when the bank, as in duty bound, came down on them and wound them up, they blamed the bank not themselves.
