NOT A STRUGGLING INDUSTRY.
" Banking is not a struggling industry. On tho contrary, it, is an exceedingly prosperous one—as 1 have found to my proiit as a shareholder. Banks do well, whatever the condition of •national trade; whether it is booming or the reverse, they make handsome profits. 1 have been .surprised, indeed, to notice how woll they do, and what handsome returns original shareholders have had. ... I have
xead that the past year has been so prosperous .that- there is a probability in many cases of dividends being increased" May T suggest that justice should be done to the" staffs before further generosity is shown to the shareholders? Wo'o-.w cvfi-ything to those who njn the banks, and it is time th:il we showed our appreciation in some more tangible form than the occasional passing of votoa of thanks." -
