Gold Diggers, Striking it rich in the Klondike
At the Canadian Bank of Commerce, [H.T.] Wills learned to rely on an extremely shrewd teller who was a Mason, and by some mysterious method that none of the staff could fathom, was able to judge a man's trustworthiness. The Mason's gut instinct became the credibility test of first resort. By the summer of 1899, Bank of Commerce bills worth $2 million were in circulation in Dawson, and (as the bank proudly recorded in its official history), "the bank incurred no losses through this channel of prolific possibilities."
