Victoria, Fob. 24—Hun. Price Blll-
Bon delivered liis budget Bpeecb in the
legislature yesterday afternoon.      it
was an able oratorical eIlort occuiiy-
inc about two hours in delivery and
wns listened to With close attention
throughout. The minister in his remarks covered u wide held. He was
naturally  Jubilant  over  the  excellent
!showing which the finances of thc
province have made under his administration and expressed thc highest
degree of confidence as to thc growing prosperity which is hound to
mark the Immediate future. This is
the second budget which Mr. Ellison
has presented to the legislature ol
Uritish Columbia and he expressed
his pleasure at l.eing alile to show
this year an even better record than
he had laid before the house und the
country a year ago.
The finance minister, said he, is
bound to remember that along with
advancing revenue, there lies before
the province lor many years the need
for a continually increasing expenditure. Nevertheless, no one who knew
the province bo well as he did, and no
one, particularly who had the op -
portunlty of travelling with the royal commission on taxation last year,
c..ui.l help f.'eling a pardonnble pride
in the prospects which lie before th?
people. As a result of what was
learned by the taxation commission
he  wns convinced  that it was    quite
' possible to  secure   quick   development
, combined »with reduction ol some
taxes nnd thc abolition of others.  It
J was, he pointed out, Impossible under
the linancigl Bystems pursued in the
Dominion or in the provinces of Canada for a minister to calculate exact
fy either his revenue or his expenditure, but, nevertheless, au approxi -
Illation eould be made which was fair
ly acurate and would suffice for all
practical  purposes.
The minister then drew uttention to
the fact that for the yeur ending
March 81, lllll, the revenue actually
obtained was greatsr than the esti -
mated receipts by 18,492,865, although
there were some items in which the
expenditures were in exc?ss of the
Dealing wiih thc provincial debt he
placed this ut $9,418,037 on March 81
Mil; against this there was a valuable asset of $8,886,647 cash then in
the bank and other outstanding as •
-els such as mortgages on the Shuswap St. Okanagnu and the Nakusp &
Blocan railways, loans to creamery
associations and other minor loans,
thus showing a balance of assets over liabilities of $1,197,691. This compared the assetB hy $801.C44 and com
pared even marc favorably with the
fiscal very favorably with the prcv -
ious fiscal year when thc liabilities
exceeded year em: ing March 31, 1809,
When the liabilities exceeded the as -
sets by 88,894,577; thus in two years
not only has the balance in thc public accounts swung round lor lhe lirst
time since Confederation from the
debt t.. the credit side, but the
change represents a total accumula -
tion ol laving! to thc extent of ?4,-
792,271  in two years.
It wns gratifying to note the high
position which the credit of British
Columbia occupied in the markets ol
tbe world; on January 11, 1912, British Columbia 3 per cent. stockB sold
, at 81",, compared with 83 for Qiiekec,
B0| for Ontario, 79 for Nova Hcotin,
j 75j for Manitoba, and 73J for New -
This acknowledged prosperity, the
minister remarked, might interfere
with the demand whicli thc province
was now making on the Dominion
government for better terms, but he
d.d not think that such an argument
wns fair, as the demand for better
terms rested upon elements of jus-
ti.-e whichf he was sure would lie acknowledged when the matter was Investigated by an Imperial commis -
pi on.
Hpenking dI the finances ot the
present year the minister estimated
the revenue nt $10,:187,S3(I. Tbis, as
he pointed out. would I.e about the
flame as the previous yenr. The government has not found it possible owing to thc pressure of other business
to rmg forward legislation this session  bearing on the charges In thc in
ndence i.f taxation recommended   I.y
tbe Hallway Oomffiisslon which has
recently issued its report, aud, tbeie-
lore, al any rate lor this financial
year the revenue tas, personal property iax remain in torce, end there ls
in. serious difference in the    amount
estimated for income tax. Ill tbe estimated revenue Ior the year thei e is
an Increase ol $32,029 in the Do -
minion of Canada subsidy. Thc esti-
ni.'H.e tor land sales is unchanged, but
thnt tor land revenue is double 1, hern; * i "."I*I instead ot $200,000*, the
coal prospecting licenses being pru.ci
pally responsible for this inti' nao.
Timber royalties have licen Calculated at $.".<">.i;,W,  being an    increase   ol
$81   Timber licenses remain    thc
same, $1,800,(130. Free miners •-erti -
lici.tes have risen from $50,00*1 to
$7v,C*0O, and general mining receipts
from $90,0011 to $110,000. Probate i.s
Increased $30,0CO; succession duty,
$81 .'.i. The estimate for registry
toes lms risen from $350,000 to $600,-

is figured at $800,000. The land tax,
thnt Is the tux on wild, coal and tim
ber lands have come up Irom $850,-
000 to $4."iO,C*C*5. The royalty and tax
on coal are expected to reach $850,-
000, being considerably larger than
the past year, during which the revc-
lixi. J from this source were seriously
curtailed by the prolonged strike.
Th- figures under the Chinese Kestrie
Hon Act are placed at $5fi0,0U0, hut
this is confessedly a low estimate and
the chances are that the amount re-
reived from this source will he con -
sidcrnbly more.

ical Rupture Appliance
Last week we told you something
about this rupture appliance, and if
you arc a ruptured person you were
interested, ll not, ruptured yon were
not Interest! 1 and need reau no further.
We confess that the greatest dilli -
cult} wti had in writing the notice of
lust week and this notioe .s to convey to you the real worth ol the appliance. In almost, any paper you
pick up are advertisements of rupture
trusses signed by self-cured rupture
specialists, and amongst them they
have managed lo, claim all that. Is
possible for a rupture truss. Ue
recognize that it is hard for ub to
persuade you that wo really cau do
what others profess to do—that is,
it. is hard to do here—but uot. a dlf-
Ucult matter if you could sec what
wu have to oiler.
We are daily lilting people,—men,
women uud children, and with the
Bame pleasing result to them and us.
Last week amongst others were a
child of four months, a boy of five
years, and u man trom New York,
who has been ruptured lor over 20
years. He fairly grabbed at the appliance the rniuute he saw it. To -
night We fitted an ex-locomotive engineer of 70 odd years al age, aud
when he left it wus with the remark
that he "was experiencing the lirst
comfortable feeling he had felt for
yours." Write us for pamphlet of Information. Thc Johnston Truss Co.,

The estimated expenditures are put
at $16,370,001,011; this is a considerable' increase over the flgureB ol the
previous year. Among the departments which show an increased tOBt
arc the administration of justice, the
maintenance of public institutions
and education. The great bulk of the
increase, however, is accounted for by
public works. S5,000,000 is set aside
lor roads, Btreets, bridges and
wharves, and $3,000,000 tor works
and buildings. There is to be $100,-
000 tor the development i:' Strath -
cona Park, $75,000 for thc buil l.ng
of the tranBprovincial road, $75,000
for thc road from Castle Mountain to
the Columbia Valley, $30n,000 for additions to the Parliament buildings,
$300,0*0 for thc new wing ot \ ancouver court house, $225,0"O fnr the
Prison Farm buildings at Burnaby,
$500,000 for beginning thc work of
building the provincial railway, $400-
HO0 towards the bridge over Second
Narrows, this grant being conditional
that the bridge shall be free ol tolls
for vehicular and pedestrian tr.ittic,
and Bhall bo subject to such tolltl for
railways as may be deemed :uir by
the Lieutengut-Governor In council.
Among the miscellaneous grants ere
$1001) for the Boy Scouts throughout
the province; $10,000 for the Protective Home for GUIs in Vancouver aud
$7000 for the Young Women's Chris -
tinn Association in Victoria. There is
also a provision of $-5,COO for royal
commissions, and several additions
aro made to the superannuation
fund.*.. In this connection Mr. Ellison
announced that a royal commission
will be appointed shortly to investigate the conditions ol agriculture and
irrigation nnd all that pertains to
the welfare of agriculture generally .
The decision of the government to
appoint this commission is largely
due to the eflorts ol Mr. Lucas, the
member lor Yale who has beeu active
in urging that tbis course be adopted.
The mini>ter then proceeded to denl
with the conditions cxistiug throughout the year in various industries. As
to agriculture, he pointed out, lhat
the totul produce of thc province iu
1910 was valued at $14,39'.i,o00, while
imports ot farm produce for that year
were $14,902,901. In 1911 the figures were $20,837,803 of home product! against ^14,709,854 ol imports.
The home products therefore out -
stripped the imports by more than
$6,000,000. The whole increased consumption of the year was provided
lor by home grown products without
any iucrease of imports.
Although it is undoubtedly a drawback that the province should be com
pelled to import so large a percent -
age of its foodstuffs. the situation,
nevertheless, in Mr. Ellison's opinion
hns thc advantage ol being an ndver
lisement to settlers wishing to take
up farm life. If an incoming settler
knows that for many years he can
raise crops, all of which will be loud
ly called for, and that he will never
be under the necessity of exporting
them, he will be impelled to come to
seek his fortune here, where such an
excellent market is awaiting him.
The Department ol Agriculture,
which in 190S had eight officials,
has now twenty-four, and provision
is being made to add live more dur -
ing thc present year. The fruit crop
of 1911 was rather poor. It did not
amount to 50 per cent of the produce
of 1910, one*, thousand carloads being
exported in 1910 as against less than
500 in 1911. Dairying has not do -
vclopcd ns might have been ci -
pecU'd. This is owing to the excessive cost of foodstuffs and the
fact that many farms have been acquired bj investors und subdivided as
suburban property. There is a gratifying improvement in the quality of
farm stock and u very :orwnrd
movement in poultry farming. The
tobacco growing industry Is making
good progress; the culture ol bees
has taken lirm hold in tbe province.
Horticulture is steadily advancing
and now requires the services of five
trained officials ot tbe department.
Tulierciilosis in cattle has been materially decreased through the work
ol the government inspectors, and it
is gratifying to observe that the majority of farmers nave come to recognize the importance ol supplying
pure milk and are cordially co-operating with the department in the
work of inspection. There are now
sixty-live farmers' institutes with a
memltfrahip of about HoOO. The main
object of these Institutes Is co-operation amongst the farmers with re •
spert to marketing produce and ae-
curing supplies. One of the main ob-
jerts which they have attained is to
secure stump powder for land clearing purposes at a greatly reduced
price through an arrangement made
by the government with thc powder
and transportation companies. The
movement for women's institutes Is
spreading rapidly. An advisory board
of four women from diflerent parte
ol tne |ir.iv,uce hns lieen appointed
t" advise the department m matters
relating to home work, .
Mr. Ellison then dealt briefly with
tbe condition of the timber industry
A blend of indescribably delicious llavor, peculiarly adapted to
cerving at social functions and preferred by many for nil occasions.

and tho lumber trade, both of wliicb
show very satisfactory returns. Thc
forest revenue for the past fiscal year
was $2,636,186. The lumber cut for
1911, was 1,1160,000,000 feet; of this
amount 1,013,000,000 feet were manufactured Into lumber and 47,000,000
feet were exported. The royalty collections for 1911 excoeded thoBO      ol
1910 by $50,731. The minister said
that   he  looked   forward   to    a    Btill
I greater  stimulus  in thc  lumber trade
I in 1912, especially aa there  will be a
! larger local demand owing to the de
1 velopment     ol    the    province.       He
looked     forward     also    to a     rapid
growth  in the pulp industry, as the,
supplies in the     United     States   are '
known to be rapidly becoming      in -
sufficient for the needs of that coun- \
try.   The  paper   making   industry    Ib
already     nourishing   In the province,
an 1 promises     to rapidly  grow      to
, enormous dimensions us it has      thc
1 great  advantages  of    cheap    water -
power,   cheap   timber,       with    cheap
transportation in close  juxtaposition
■    The     mining    development has not
been so satisfactory as     wus hoped;
thc Crow's Nest coal mine strike not
I only  diminished  tbe  output  of    coal
but. had  a serious effect also on the
output of the metalliferous       mines.
The estimated shrinkage in  value    is
about $9">0,000 in gold,  $270,000      ln
.-.liver,    $270,000 in lead aud     $G5,000
in zinc.   There hus been, however,   a
rise of $18,500 in returnB from    copper,  principally due to the  fine    output in the coast district mines.
The output of roal was lees   than
in  1910 by 365,0011 tonB nnd  the output  of coke  Icbs by      about    145,000
tons. The    new  discovered  coal  fields
ol Skeena River are knowii to be   in
extent at least two thousand  square
I miles and they give promise of hound
less riches. This coal is of thc anthra
cite quality such as does not     exist
I elsewhere in America except in    Pennsylvania,
i    A new nnd gratifying feature i*- observable  in   connection with  the salmon fisheries.   Despite the fact    that
1911 was an offycar, thc pack
brought in a lotal of ncnrly$6,000,000
as against a little more than $4,000-
000 ln 1910. These gratifying figures
are due to thc fact that whereas in
days gone by the sockeye was regard
ed as the chief and lavorite species
for exportation, there has now arisen
a demand from all parts of the world
for all kinds of salmon including even
value of the fisheries of 1911, including halibut, herring and nil food lish
as well as oil bearing fisheries would
reach  about  ?11,000,000.
i    The year hns witnessed  more than
.100 miles ol railwny construction In
I tho province.   It is claimed that the
three great transcontinental railways
| will spend $100,000,000 during thc
I coming year.    Trade   with Australia
and New Zealand bus shown     steady
growth through the year aad tho approaching completion of thc Panama
Cuual is bound to bc of great advantage to allof tbe Canadian ports on
the Pacific coast. Tho activity of pri
v.-ite investment in fanning and city
properties has been a marked feature
of the year, the returns of the land
registry amounting  to $613,000.
Taking the home production in man
ufactures, mining, timber, agriculture
and fisheries, the minister finds that
it totalled in 1911, $124,872,709, as
compared with $100,742,595 lor 1910.
"Little more than ball a century
ago," said the minister in conclusion
"did famous men by much toil of
hand uud sweat of brow enduring
hardships aud privations, boquenth to
us a nation in the making. Following
their great footsteps it becomes at

Editor Mail-Herald:—
A tew days ago a party signing
himself an "enquirer" asked tor Information regarding the progress ol
the Harden of Eden. Of course we
arc too young to boast of any phenomenal crops, but we can honestly
say thnt we have never had a fail -
ure with anything wc have tried to
grow. J. H. Johnson, has grown
tobacco, celery, tomatoes, watermelons, and all kinds of berries and the
best of small fruits, with success. He
also has 4000 apple grafts which
show a remarkable growth for the
past year. On thc ranches of A.
Hagstrom, M. Wiper, E. Eriksou and
others will be found bearing orchards
that produce a very choice quality
of fruit. H. E. lluycock a:so has
about 300 trees that will bear this
yeur. The Malakwa Farms arc known
all over the west as growers of good
hay and vegetables. Celery experts
have declared this locality as well
adapted to celery, and this farm will
grow it on an extensive scale this
year. Different residents here who
came from the Okanagan are going
to e\perlmcnt with grapes, peaches ,
and cherries, ami have no doubts of
anything but success. We have two
good points to oiler to the public
and they are—real soil and plenty of
water to say nothing of au ideal cllm
ate. There Is about 600 acre's in cul
tivatlon in  the  vicinity  of  Malakwa.
