By way of divertisement in
these trying times nothing is
more acceptable to the people
than tableaux vivants, the en
thusiasm shown by the audi
ence as each living picture
was unveiled Friday night is
evidence that such exhibitions
take a sort of malaria hold on
the people from start to finish,
At this time, with visions of
the World's Fair constantly be
fore one the representation of
one of the new Columbian
stamps was, perhaps, the most
appropriate. The gentleman
essaying the roll of Christo
pher made a very creditable ap
pearance and was the picture
of a man who had been suc
cessful in taking up home
steads and laying out town
sites. The scene represented
Columbus at the court of Isa
bella, in the act of unfolding a
Chart of the Oceanic S. S. Co.
showing the shortest route
from Honolulu to Chicago. If
he could visit the United States
to-dayaand see the improve
ments that have been made
since the first time he came
over there is no doubt of his
wishing he had remained and
made it his home. He could
have had a big pull in his
ward and could have been in
on the ground floor of most
anything even a soap trust.
In this period of progress and
high grade civilization he could
have taken the Chairman of
the Central Committee up to
the top of a high mountain
and shown his railroads, his
slaughter houses and his
coffers filled with pure leaf
lard and said "All these will I
give for a seat in the Senate."
Christopher made a great mis
take in dying in the early days
before progress got a hold on
the people. If he had stayed
with us he might have done
well even though he should
miss getting his picture on a
postage stamp. The name of
Christopher Columbus would
no doubt now be among those
who are using Hendry Break
ers. The goods received by the
"Amy Turner" seem to have
met with the approval of our
customers, they've been going
out of our store in dray loads.
The demand for our supe
rior grade of Garden Hose
has been so great lately that
it has been hard work for us
to keep up with it. People
have learned where hose, good
hose may be obtained, that
probably accounts for our
If you want to make home
pleasant beyond anything you
have ever experienced there
are two things essential, Fischer
Steel Range and a set of Havi
land China; there's no romance
about this, it's a fact.
By the "W. G. Irwin" we
received a big stock of the
favorite Crank Life Lanterns,
in nickle, copper and plain
finish. It is a convenient
lantern and one that can be
handled without fear of burn
ing one's fingers. The price
is the same as the common
ones but they are worth twice

trnlinn Bank, which had thoir hoad
quartors in London, woro unablo to
keep thoir doors open. Only four
of tho groat banks trading in Aus
tralia woro still doing business when
wo loft Moroton Bay, namely, tho
Union of Australia, tho Bank of Aus
tralasia, tho Bank of Now South
Wnlo3 and tho City Bank of Sydnoy;
and those woro paying paper, maoo
legal tondor for six months and
guarautood by tho Govorutnont hi
authority of a special Act of Parlia
ment. The figures of this crodit
crash aro stupendous. Tho doposits
in tho suspondod banks totalled
$102,965,000, of which $274,810,000
bolongod to Australia, and $128,125,
000 to Groat Britain. At the timo
wo loft no less than 57,000 current
accouuts in Now South Wales alono
woro locked up. Tho misery and
inconvonionco caused by this lock
ago you can easily imagine. In tho
four colonies chiofly affected tho
greater part of tho domestic and
trading capital ol tho poopio was
impounded in institutions which
woro not insolvont in tho real sonso
of tho word, but woro unablo to find
tho cash domandod by a panio-
siricuon uosl oi uoposiiors. urom
has boon deposited by hundreds of
thousands of sovereigns hi safe do
posit companies and in private hid
ing places. Tho Statu savings banks
aro gorged with money. So inti
mately did tho banks ontor into
business operations in Australia,
moro so probably than in any other
country in tho world, that mercan
tile operations have boon paralysed
by those cumulative disasters. No
doubt our banking system has boon
a seriously faulty ouo. The banks
aro reconstructing on a wisor basis.
But Australia has had a terrible les
son in the economic value of faith.
Distrust is a monster amongst
wreckers. It is a feeling as subtle,
as swift, and as potent as electricity.
It is a solvent so penetrating and
destructive that strong and old in
stitutions disappear under its influ
ence. Whether or not a man loves
his neighbor it is at least necessary
to have some faith in him. Tho
reconstructing banks aro trying to
protect themselves in some degree
from this destructive distrust. Now,
it was just at this timo that Mr.
Huddart's enterprise was launched.
"Well, Mr. Ward, if times are so bad
thore as you represent, how did Mr.
Huddart manage to get the line
"You soo ho was dealing with the
Governments of three countries.
Ho started naturally with Canada.
Then he dealt with the Imperial
Government and with those of
Australia. His contract with
Canada stipulatod that he should
start his nrst ship in May,
and here she is. He had to make
the best of tho Australian situation.
I have said that we loft Sydnoy on a
Thursday. Oil Monday two banks
suspended in Queensland and one in
Now South Wales. On Tuesday a
bank suspended in1 Victoria. On
Wednesday a third bank suspended
in Queensland. Five banks in three
days! And all this woe piled on tho
top of the previous crashes. Aus
tralia is, so to speak, strewn with the
ruins of building societies, banks,
and other commercial corporations.
It showed tho public interest in this
endeavor to open up permanent com
munication between Australia and
Canada that it was the only thing in
the shape ef a public enterprise
which could eot discussed at all.
Yet at such a timo as I have faintly
outlined this Canadian-Australian
service was not only discussed, but
won tho support of nearly all the
loading journals of Australia and
Tasmania. I can, indeed, only call
one exception to mind. It mot with
somo opposition, but, as the Syduey
Morning Herald remarked on tho
day wo Toft Now South Wales, tho
discussion only soomed to place tho
proposal in a moro favorable light.
All the same I do not like to speak
as if success were absolutely assured.
Sir George Dibbs and his colleagues
supported tho service and proposed
to tako tho opinion of Parliament
before tho close of tho session. Sir
Thomas Mcllwraith in Queensland
personally favored tho service and
up to the date of our departure no
dissentient voico had been raised in
that Colony. But if the financial
crisis has had further and oven
moro disastrous developments since
May 20 it may easily bo understood
that all tho friendly intentions to
wards the Canadian connection may
havo boon scattered."
"Did tho crisis affect tho ocean
"It virtually suspondod the traffic.
One of tho P. & O. boats left Syd
noy with oupy 15 saloon passengors.
Tho following Orient liner is said to
have had only 8 booked. Prom tho
numerous inquiries made for passen
gers wo havo little doubt that
wo should have sailed a full ship
woro it not for tho paralysing effect
of tho banking crisis. Wo should
havo had a large contingent from
each of tho throe eastern colonies.
But many who wanted to come had
thoir money lockod up, and others in
tho gonorally tottering condition of
affairs woro afraid to go away. You
soo tho very foundations of things
appeared to bo broken up. Possibly
confidence will come back into tho
pooplo's hearts, if not as suddenly
as it departed from thorn, yet moro
rapidly thau tho possimists predict,
and tho Warrimoo which will follow
us in a mouth may havo hotter luck
than fell to tho lot of tho pioneer
"Tho now sorvico will work with
tho Canadian Pacific Railway Co.?"
"That is tho intoutiou, Indeed
tho thing is fixed up, I boliovo, by
contract, Mr. Huddart is coining
along in tho Warrimoo, and ho will
consult with tho Canadian Paoific
authorities, but co-oporatioii is al
ready sottlod. Outside Australia tho
Canadian l'acilio will act for ub, aud
iiimdo Australia tho same ngonts will
act for both. Of course what is iu
tondod is to doolop n now route
through only British torritorytlio
passing call at Honolulu will bo tho

Australia to Europe What is aimed
at as tho crown of our labor is a
highway for mails, commorco, arid
travellers, inferior in no ossontial,
suporior in swiftness and safety and
comfort, to any of the othor routes
now in oxistouco. To Bocuro this
ultimatoly wo must of courso havo
the co-oporation of tho throo coun
tries concerned, tho United King
douij Canada, and Australia. Tho
credit of tho idoa of tho now road
belongs to Canada. Wo havo por
