B.C. LEGISLATURE.
Victoria, March 6.—In j his third
budget speech the Hon. Price Ellison,
minister of finance, on Monday laid before the legislature the estimates of revenue and expenditure for the current year
as well as a detailed statement of the
financial conditions which obtained in
all parts of the province under the present administration.
The revenue for the year is conservatively calculated at $10,326,085.05, this
being a decrease of $51,745.61 from the.
revenue of 1912 13, a fact due mainly to
the abolition of the poll tax.
While in reality a deficit of $2,843,000
for the fiscal year just concluded was an
ticipated at the beginning of 1912, an
amount of $445,000 represented the actual discrepancy between income and
expenditure. This was due mainly to
the unprecedented activity and prosperity
prevalent throughout the province, which
brought the revenue receipts up to $io,-
745,709, an amount showing, a net ex jess
over and above the original estimates of
$2,553,608. The excesses occurred prin
cipally in land revenues, timber licenses
and royalties, free mining certificates,
licenses of all grinds, fines and fees of
court, succession duties, registry fees,
revenue tax, etc.
The expenditure for the ensuing year,
which is estimated at $17,838,266.11, consists as follows: Public debt, $538,944 ;
civil government, salaries, $1,412,726;
administration of justice., $58,158; legis
lation, $91,020; maintenance of publ c
institutions, $496,020 ; hospitals and charities, $704,100. Administration of justice
other than salaries $378,900. Education,
$11,75.388. Transport $163,000 Revenue
services $50,000 public works, including
works and buildings $3,445 000, roads
streets, bridges and wharves, $5 961 500,
subsidies to steamboats, ferries and bridg-
■' es $126,109, contingencies $150,000, total
$9 692.600, miscellaneous, $3,086,410, to
tal $17,838,266 11.
Hon Mr. Ellisons budget speech,   was
a'.l that a budget speech should be. There
was the acenrate, concise and interesting
summing up of conditions, and the predominant note of optimism, and  although
he spoke for little over an hour hi_ revitw
of the many diverse subjects of pu.lic in
terest that were connected  witn  govern
mental work, was extremely comprehen
_ive.
At the outset he referred to the honor
which the Provinc has received in the
visit of His Grace, The Duke of Connaught, and also to the' degree of Knighthood which had been conferred upon the
Premier two notable events of tbe past
.. year.
In connection with the Educational
policy presued by, the government, Hon
Mr. Ellison stated that the increase unr
der the head of education as contained in
the estimates was $202,56 over 1912, the
entire amount being devoted to per capita
grants to municipalities and  schoo s in
the more remote districts. This increase
was perfectly natural on account of the
heavy influx of population.
In regard to the mostimportaud spending department, said .the Minister during
the course of his speech, we find that the
work which we are undertaking this year
will entail an expenditure of about a
million and a half dollars more than last
year when the total auioant disbursed in
this regard was $8,236,363. This year the
total is $9,657,600. This may appear a
very large expenditure, but the government is faced with the fact that the rapid
development of all the districts of the
province, and especially in those localities now being made tributary by rail-
wavs being built, is absolutely necessary
to provide means of facile communication
and transportation to accomodate the
needs of incotning,settlers.
The number of items under this head
are so numerous that it is almost impossible or impractible to deal with them in*
dividual^', but it will be noted by a scrutiny of the varions items that the newer
parts of the province have beengenerons
ly catered to, and that the work of devel
opment is being pushed with careful
energy and precision.
MILITARY NOTES.
Lieut.-Col. Charles L. Flick, command
ing 31st regiment B.C. Horse accompani
ed by Major H. H. Mathews Were in
Princeton this week with a view to raising a troop of twenty soldiers for the
auove regiment of Canada militia. About
a dozen have already enrolled and there
is no doubt the required strength will be
found and a troop raised.
The service roll has been left in the
hands ot C. E. Thomas, J P., who will
swear in all recruits until officers are ap
pointed for the Princeton troops.  .
Major Matthews looked over the Five-
mile countrv with a view to acquiring a
large acreage suitable for maneuvers of
all arms in B. C. A provincial military
camp for drill and target practice will be
established at some central point and
Princeton district is favored with every
requisite. About 3000 acres will be required.
Annual drill of 12 days will be held in
May or June and three years is the term
of enlistment.
Col. Flick is a veteran of South Africa.
He is not a jingo but believes in peace
and is a fine christian gentleman.
MINES AND MINING.
Audy Jensen and J. C. Reilly of Tulameen have given an option on their mineral properties on Suter Creek, Leadville
Camp, for a cosideration of $5000 within
