Sir WILLIAM MULOCK.
There is a Bankers' Association, and on several occasions at their annual meeting according to newspaper reports which I have read, they discussed this question. I recollect now one prominent banker who was president of the Bankers' Association who expressed himself very strongly. I refer to Sir. D. R. Wilkie, manager of the Imperial bank. I think he was very strong in favour of it. Of course in all questions of this kind, as in all large questions, you will find differences of opinion, but the project is not without its advocates in tlie banking world.
