Excerpt from Garland's Banks, Bankers and Banking in Canada: With List of Bank Solicitors and Commercial Lawyers; To Which Has Been Added, Statistics of the Dominion

In presenting to the public the first edition of "Banks, Bankers and Banking in Canada," the Editor does so with reluctance, knowing that it is next to an impossibilty to collate such a quantity of matter and arrange it in form without discrepancies, inaccuracies and omissions; but the absence of any work of the kind, and the seeming growing necessity for one has been the magnet to draw forth this first endeavour.

It is the Editor's intention to issue this work annually. Each edition shall be carefully revised and amended as in his own judgment, and suggestions he may receive from others, may be deemed to add to its usefulness.

The Statistics of the Dominion which has been added was not at first intended to form a portion of this work, but on the advice of several friends as to the valuable adjunct it would prove to such a volume, the author undertook the compilation and preparation. This part of the arrangement being hastily done, and being undertaken at so late a period in the preparation of the volume, must be his apology for any inaccuracies that may be discovered.

As must be the case in all works of this nature, in procuring data, the Editor feels himself deeply under obligation to several of the General Managers and Managers of Banks, and also to gentlemen in the Departments of the Dominion Government, from whom he was obliged to solicit necessary information. All freely responded to his appeal; but he feels specially indebted to the Deputy Minister of Finance, Mr. J. M. Courtney, and his co-adjutor, Mr. C. W. Treadwell, of the Finance Department, who unhesitatingly gave the result of their researches, in the preparation of material for the Banking Bill, and they also prepared the greater portion of the Synopsis of Banking Systems; Mr. C. J. Anderson, Chief of Government Savings Banks, for statistics relating to his branch; Mr. P. M. Robins, Department of Inland Revenue, who spared neither time nor labor in making the information relating to his Department full and reliable; Mr. J. Willoughby Shore, who so freely undertook the preparation of statistics relating to the Department of Indian Affairs, and to Mr. G. Murray Jarvis, who has been throughout indefatigable in assisting to procure any information required.

The Editor will be pleased to receive suggestions for future editions, and will assure those who may take the trouble to send them that they shall receive due consideration.

As parents reluctlantly part with their child, when going out into the world - bright though the immediate prospects and surroundings may seem - a feeling of dread for the future pervades their minds; so the Editor, in sending out this work upon the tempestuous sea of public opinion, though he may feel confident of its usefulness, dreads the reception that may be given it, but withal, does so wishing it "bon voyage," and trusts that much information may be derived from a perusal of its pages.
