No Financial Depression, and
None Since the War Began.
A well-known correspondent of an
Important Western daily 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 there
been anything of the sort since the
war began. Anyone who has watched
the barometer of trade, and seen the
bank clearings of the different citiea
grow and continue to grow will have
arrived at the same conclusion. The
trade statistics reveal a like situation.
The progress that the farmers are
making Is highly satisfactory. As this
correspondent says: "It is true there
have been adaptations to meet new
conditions, and taxes have been re
vised, and that a very large burden of
added expense in many lines has 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. The greater portion
of the Dominion must be classed as
agricultural area, with only an infini
tesimal part of it f ully developed.
"Lacking complete development, the
agricultural portion of Canada has
naturally placed its main dependence
upon fewer resources than would be
the case 'in the States. Even in peace
times, . business would be subject to
more frequent and wider fluctuations,
due to the narrower foundation upon
which it rests.
"Thus, Canada has been able to
come up to the war with efficiency and
sufficiency and to maintain and even
advance its civilian activities.
"Canada's first element of .financial
strength lay In its branch bank 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 the low spots;
also, it places at the command of each
Individual branch the combined re
sources of the whole Institution so
that there Is an efficient safeguard
against severe strain at any . one
"Here In Winnipeg, the all-Canada
banking houses maintain big, strong
branches and, as elsewhere in the
Dominion, these held to an attitude of
eaneness and solidity that prevented
even the start of any financial dis
turbance. That business generally Is now com
ing strong on an even keel is largely
due to the absolute refusal of the
banks, both branch and independent,
to exhibit the slightest signs of ex
citement or apprehensiveness.
"For all Canada the savings bank
6gures are astonishing. Beginning with
1913, they are, for the fiscal year end
ing March SI :
1913 $622,928,968
1914 663,650.230
1915 683,761,432
1916 738,169.212
1917 888,765,698
"These figures represent what Cana
dians have put away after paying the

the same as in the States, all increas
es In taxes and imports of all kinds

erous subscriptions to war bond is

keeping the -money supplies circulat
ing in the normal, necessary channels.
Tradesmen generally attribute a large
part of the good financial condition to
the fact that the booze bill has bees
eliminated. Canada takes law enforce
ment with true British seriousness.
"Financially, as In every other re
spect, Canada has developed sufficien
cy. She has done it in spite of Initial
conditions which would not look prom
ising in the States and she has done It
in a big, strong way.
"One of the best things we did," said
one of the leading Winnipeg bankers
to me, "was to decide early In the
game that we simply would not borrow
"We started In ignorance of how the
war would develop and without know

A Daughter of Mars.
Liberty now had two weapons, the
guard's rifle and the revolver she had
found under the blanket. ' The sight of
Lopes and Manuel laughing as they
talked beside the cases of ammunition
gave her an idea.
Slowly she raised the rifle between
the bars of the cell window and pulled
the trigger.
A tremendous explosion followed as
the bullet struck a case of dynamite.
Lopez and Manuel were buried beneath
a mountain of sand. Attracted by the
mysterious explosion, a hundred sol
diers came running to their aid.
They helped carry Lopez Into the
hut which he made his quarters.
"A few bad cuts, but otherwise neith
er of them are seriously injured," re
marked the surgeon after a cursory
A half mile from the explosion Pedro
and Rutledge lay .snuggled behind a
sand mound.
"That's strange," remarked But-
ledge. "I was just drawing a bead on
that pile of cases when up she went."
Bob and Pedro had tethered their
horses to a sturdy cactus not far from
where they lay hidden.
T guess we had better get back to
the horses," remarked Rutledge.' "They
will be Investigating soon, and we don't
want to be caught without our
Upon reaching the top of the next
sand knoll Rutledge made a disheart

gone I
"Now we are up against it," declared
Rutledge savagely.
The Mexicans, never suspecting that
Liberty had fired the shot which blew
up their ammunition, had now sepa
rated Into bands and were scouring
the surrounding desert for the Ameri
cans whom they suspected of being
In the vicinity. Two of Lopez' horse
men topped the rise a hundred feet
from Rutledge and Pedro,
Pedro and Bob hurriedly scurried
across the sand and without waiting
a moment Jumped to the backs of the
horses. The two Mexicans cried out In
fright as the Americans sprang up be
hind them. Pedro, with his superior
strength, was able to grasp his man
with a strangle hold which prevented
the latter from putting up a fight, but
Rutledge had his hands full. His man
turned upon him savagely, whipping
out his knife at the same moment.
A terrific struggle followed. The
Mexican succeeded In reaching his re
volver after Rutledge had wrenched
his knife from him. Before Rutledge
could prevent him the Mexica had
fired a warning shot, which attracted
the attention of the Mexicans in the
Some miles farther on Pedro's Mex
ican also began to show fight. The wiry
young scout made short .work of him,
Bob now realized that It was his life
against the Mexican's, and when the
latter, after firing a shot to attract
his fellow bandits, turned the barrel
on him, Rutledge shot without hesita
tion and ducked as the Mexican's bul
let whizzed by his head. The Mexi
can dropped dead.
Using the bandit's body as a shelter.
Bob now turned his attention to the
Mexicans who were drawing in upon
"This is the finish," thought Rut
ledge, "unless Pedro gets back in time
with Winston and the boys.
Liberty, waking from her afternoon
siesta, walked to the window of her
cell t6 gaze upon the havoc created by
the explosion of the ammunition and
dynamite. Across the sands she saw a
body of Mexicans leading a familiar
figure toward the hut. which Lopez
made his headquarters.
"Bob Rutledge !" she gasped, as the
figures drew closer.
The bandits halted In front of Lo
pez's cabin where Liberty- could see
and hear everything that passed.
"Well, my gallant American cap
tain," sneered Lopez, "I suppose you
.are after Liberty over there in the
hut?" Lopez pointed to the white
xaced girl who peered out from behind

what I want to know and I will let yoa
go. If yon tell me enough, maybe I
will let her go with yott. That would
be nice, wouldn't it?"
"Save your wind," replied Rutledge.
"Take him out," ordered Lopez.
"Give him a little Mexican inquisition.
And do it so that tiger cat over there
can see it." Lopez pointed to Liberty,
who stood white faced with her brow
pressed against the bars of her cell. v
Meanwhile Pedro rode madly across
the desert. Toward three o'clock he
raced down the last sand hill which
separated him from the American en
campment. . Breathlessly he rode up to
Major Winston's tent.
"They've got Rutledge. major," he
panted. -
Without an instant's hesitation Ma
jor Winstcn seized a bogle that lay on
a camp chair and shrilled out a blast
that brought the entire camp to its
feet. Throwing the bugle to the
ground Winston , leaped to his horse
and was oft before his own men had
thrown saddles on their mounts.
Lopez stood to one side as his ban
dits led Bob out to the wall of a white
washed adobe hut.
Some of you fellows that are bandy
with your knives show us what you can
do at long-distance throwing," com
manded Lopez.' "See how thick the
American's hide Is."
"Stop It!"
Lopez wheeled around to find him
self looking Into the barrel of Liberty's
Pancho Lopez," shouted Liberty,
her voice hoarse with determination,
the first knife that is flung at Rut
ledge means a bullet through your mis
erable head."
That night there went forth from
Washington the definite order for the
withdrawal of American troops.
Alone of all the American officers.
Major Winston, leader of the most ad
vanced outpost, disobeyed orders. With
a hundred-odd bronzed cavalrymen fol
lowing close behind, the late afternoon
of the day Pancho Lopez stood Bob
Rutledge up against a whitewashed
'dobe wall, found the grizzled old ma
jor and his troopers still fighting their
way through the desert sand.
"We may be too late to get Rut
ledge alive," declared the Major, "but,
by God, well get Lopez and his skunk-
colored gang."
Lopez stood irresolute, his hands
raised high in the air while Liberty
continued to point her short-barreled
shotgun at him.
"Now, order one of your men to open
the door of this hut," shouted Liberty,
"or I'll blow the few brains you have
out on the sand."
Lopez, knowing well that the Amer
ican girl meant every word, reluctant
ly gave the order. Liberty stepped
forth from the hut.
"Take these ropes off , Rutledge,"
Liberty then commanded, "and remem
ber, Lopez, if you or any of your men
make the slightest suspicious move I
will let you have the contents of this
Lopez sullenly unbound Rutledge
and then, upon Liberty's orders, pushed
on ahead, while Rutledge and Liberty
followed, Rutledge covering the Mexi
can bandits with his rifle and Liberty
with the barrel of her shotgun close
against Lopez' ribs.
Immediately after Rutledge, Liberty
and Lopez had disappeared, over the
sand dunes on horseback Lopez' fol
lowers held a council of war to decide
how to rescue their leader. Finally
Manuel mounted a horse and, taking a
circuitous route, rode oft with the in
tention of waylaying Rutledge and Lib
erty at a bend in the desert trail.
Rutledge anticipated some such
move on the part of the insurrectos
and whispered his suspicions to Lib
erty. "You had better ride on ahead,
my dear," he said. "I will take my
chances with Lopez. Try to pick up
Pedro. I am sure he escaped, and If
he did he will be on the way back by
now with some of the boys.'
Two miles down the trail Liberty
thought she heard a shot. Rutledge
and Lopez were Invisible in the long
sandy hollow behind her.
Liberty had heard a shot. Rutledge,
jogging along with Lopez a few feet
In front of him suddenly felt a burn
ing sensation in his right arm
"Winged 17 Rutledge hastily shifted
his revolver to his left hand.' Several
hundred yards to the left a crumbling
'dobe shelter gave him an idea. Realiz
ing that his profusely bleeding wound
might put him at Lopez's mercy in a
few minutes, Rutledge seized the bridle
of the latter's horse.
"Beat It !" he ordered. "And beat it
Lopez, glad to escape under any con
ditions, rowel ed his mount and slid to
the opposite side In Indian fashion,
fearing that Rutledge would give him
a parting shot. The American, how
ever, cantered slowly to a 'dobe-hut,
binding his wound on the way with a
bandanna handkerchief. Another shot,
and then a score sputted on the walls
of the hut as Rutledge clanged the
metal door shut behind him, leaving his
horse outside.

and in this he was not disappointed.

already was on his way. Intent upon.
rescuing Bob .Rutledge. Meanwhile
the rest of the cavalrymen were riding
ahead to round up the band of insur
rectos at their desert retreat.
Pedro and his men had gone only
few miles along the trail when they
came upon Liberty, who quickly gasped
out her story to them. In the distance,
even .as she talked, they could hear
faint reports. .
Topping the last rise which lay between-
thflh and the hollow which
marked the bed of a "lost" river, they
saw faint puffs of smoke coming from
the 'dobe hut . in which Rutledge had
taken refuge. ; On the crest of the op
posite hill came answering puffs.

Pedro. "That's Bob down there."

faintly. "My wound has made me a

circling movement of the bandits
threatened the horses.
"Pedro and I will make a break,"
said Liberty. "Stick it out and we'll
have the cavalry back here in an hour."

ing the sand on all" sides of them,
Pedro and Liberty rode madly away.
Liberty's - horse whinnied once - in
pain, and a moment later she felt him
stagger under a second shot.
"He's done for," cried Liberty. "And
we're done for, too !"

Liberty by the arm and almost threw
her into the saddle of his own mount.
