Rep resentative James of Kentucky, the democratic member of the commis sion, cross-examined the witness for some time upon this testnmony, Glavis said Ballinger had asked him to hold up the Alaska cases until after the election, and that he had agreed because he had his hands' full with another case.

'., The banking system of Canada, like that of other countries, has been the result of a process of evo lution and experiment in the ef fort to establish a system that would meet the" local conditions and requirements. Mr. Brecken ridge traces this development from the earliest efforts to introduce the practice of banking into the Brit ish North American provinces in the eighteenth century to the most recent banking legislation of 1908. Mr. Breckenridge shows that the Canadian system is in many re spects similar to the Scotch banking system; it is primarily and funda mentally a branch banking sys tem. There are today, it appears, only 29 banks in Canada, and 19 of that, number have their head of fices in Toronto and Montreal, their branches, numbering more than 2,000, being distributed from the Atlantic to the Pacific, into the Yukon country, and even into for eign countries. Of the parent banks, however, there are not more than three with head offices west of Ontario. . A subcommittee of the national monetary commission personally vis ited Canada early last fall and had interviews with leading bankers in Toronto and Montreal, the sub stance of which will later be pub lished by the commission, and, in addition, Dr. Joseph French John son, of New York university, was sent to Canada to prepare a tech nical report upon the methods and practices of the Canadian banks, which also will be published short ly by the commission.
