C1VE US A STATE BANK/ Another illustration of the widespread rule of the banks has happened during the past fortnight in Victoria. In that colony the situation iB evidently something like what it is in Queensland, in so far at least that the members of the Government with their larralv unniud hank shares and husre overdrafts are bo inextricably involved in the fate of the banks as to be completely under their rule and domination. The recent downfall of the Federal Bank and the criminal prosecution of some and the hair-breadth escapes of other ex-Ministers and members of Parliament has brought such quaking fears and qualms to those who yet remain that the latest outrageous 1prop^alrot^1ie~SiBaeiated -banks -in Mel bourne have perforce -had to J» accepted and endured with the preposterous and threadbare excuse that 'the maintenance uf. public eouOdeuce m the banking4n stibutions of Australia is a matter of national im]x-rbance.
