Victoria, March  27.���������All    records  for   provincial   expenditures   will   he  broken during the coming fiscal year  ending March 31, 1921.      It willbe  the banner year in outlays according  to the budget proposals oi' Hon. .lohn  Hart, Minister of Finance, presented  to the Legislature on Wednesday last  During   the   year   it   is   proposed   to  spend  $17,'110,1)7:5, an increase over  the year ending March  31. 1920, of  no   less   than   $3,273,J OS.   Estimated  revenue   is   $13,978,245      compared  with an actual receipt for the fiscal  year just ending of  $12,004,000.  In  his speech the Minister labored over  the  point  that  the government  had  made its  current expenditures come  within current revenue but the"fact  is that the people who pay the piper  will  be called  upon  for  the  coming  year as in that just ending to faco a  serious deficit, one amounting to no  loss than $3,432,428 on all accounts  Much has been said by the present  adminstration   of   the   wasteful     expenditures of the late admniistration  It is interesting to note that in the  palmiest year of outlays by that government, the fiscal year ended March  31, 1914, just before the war broke  out,  the  total  estimated   outlays  a-  mounted  to  $15,702,000.    The next  year the then government appreciated  the necessity of curtailment, cut  its  outlays to   $11,942,000  and  this  .retrenchment  policy    was     pursued  until for  the year  ended  March  31  1917, the last in which the Conservative  government  was    in     power  outlass aggregated  $9,07 9,3 00.      In  the succeeding four years the present  government had    steadily    increased  expenditures   until   the  estimate  for  'the  coming year  of   $17,410,485,  is  nearly double that of 191C-17.  And while the yearly outlays for  administrative purposes has shown  such a tremendous increase, the public debt of the Province has kept  pace.. The net debt of $18,170,000  on March 31, .1.917, has been increased by borrowings by tho present government of $13,777,000 bringing the  debt as of March 31, 19 19, to $31,-  946,000 against which if offset sinking funds totalling $4,S86,000. At  this session the government has lak-  en authority to borrow $4,000,000  for P. G. E. purposes; $1,000,000 for  the Do partment of Industries; $500-  000 under the Soldiers' Land Act,  and $4,800,000 to retire a note of  the P. G. S. railway company for  which ?tock hypothecated by the former P. G. E. interests will be redeemed rnd which, tberoi'oic, may i.oi  lighlfully be considered a now obligation. Then there is duo on April  1, this year, $1,080,000 which will  have to be renewed. In the budget  proposals of lion. Mr. Mart it was  stated the government also proposes  to borrow $5,000,000 for main trunk  road purposes to which the proposed  increase in motor fees, an increase  estimated at $400,000 annually, will  be devoted.  With these new commitments to be  made it would appear that by the  end of the coming fiscal year the  debt of the province will have been  further increased by some $11,000,-  000, which, as Mr. Bowser, the opposition leader might remark "is going some."  A perusal of the financial showing  of the present government since it  took office indictes that despite the  gouging of the tax-payer at almost  the breaking point, the chk'f explanation for the increased revenue, the  over-head cost ol! administration has  increased by leaps and bounds. Kor  instance, tlie figures show that where  as the expenditures lor saluriese in  ITtASEIt ROUTE  PRACTICABLE  Very careful surveys have been  made of both the Fraser Canyon ana  the Hope-Princeton routes Dr. King  told the House at Victoria the other  day and in weighing their respective  merits, he declared that the Eraser  route was practicable. No serious  grades would be encountered, the elevation would not he over 1000 feet,  and the route would be available for  nine or ten months of the year, ana  very probably for tba whole twelve  months. , Were it not for the railway  development in the canyon and tht  close contact between highway and  railways the minister observed tha.  it could well be concluded as the besi  /oute selected.  Dr. King likewise announced that  consultations were being carried on  at the present time >with the Canadian" Pacific and the Canadian National  Railways to ascertain if the departments survey, which encroached on  the rigiit-of-way of the railways,  would interfere to any great extent  -with the operations of the railway  companies. Until this was settled,  however, no final selection could be  made and he felt that it was a matter of considerable regret that when  the late government had guaranteed  the bonds of the Canadian Northern  Railway for some $48,000,000 it had  not provided for the construction of a  road for ordinary traffic.  In connection with the Hope-  Princeton route, the minister informed the House that its cost, of construction -would he nearly as much  as that of the Fraser Canyon route.  There were no unsurmountable difficulties, however, in the matter oi  grades and curvatures. On the othei  hand, the elevation at the summit  would be more than 40 0 0 foet and  the season, during which train  would be possible, limited, to not  more than six months of the year.  Moreover, he said, it would be subject to slides and deterioration from  floods and snow water, while the resultant damage would absorb a largt  annual expenditure of money were  the highway to be kept in proper condition. Nevertheless, said the minister, it would have to be remembered that the Hope-Princeton route,  once through connection was established would open up a new country  rich in timber, mineral and agricultural land. The expenditure to complete this extension by either route  would approximate $900,000 to $1,-  000,000.  1916 aggregated approximately $1,-  600,000, they will this corning year  reach the enormous total of $3,312,-  4 80 an increase of a round million  over 1919 and, in addition, the Item  if travelling expenses will eat up a  further $376,000: These figures, too  do not, includo some $650,000 to he  .spent by the lands department for  administrative purposes in connection with various activities, the great  part of which will go in salaries to  scores of various officials who will  fatten upon the public purse under  the headings of land surveys, publicity, general investigations, incidentals and contingencies, reconnaisance.  oil invistigations, etc. in this connection the Minister of Lands would  appear to be a champion spender of  the administration so far as ever-  head outlays for administration purposes is concerned. In his department are some 280 employees    and  (Continued on Pago Three)  Huntingdon, March 2 9.���������That the  Sumas reclamation scheme should'go  through on tlie increased estimate'  basis was practically unanimously  endorsed by a. large representative  gathering of ihe property owners .r.-  terested in the scliemc, held in tho  school house, Huntingdon, Saturday  afternooiv^last. The "endorsement .for  proceeding with tlie work under ihe  increment to the estimates Avas taken by a show of hands, and carried  94 to 6. In addition to this large  majority there were persons present  holding proxies representing over  14 00 acres in favor'of continuing the  work.  Mr. R. H. S.- Cre'swiell introduced  the Hon. E. D. Barrow, who explained the government's reason for'wishing to call the me e'ting. He said  the government felt that as conditions had caused an increase in the  original estimate to, be made, that it  was only right that the matter should'  be laid before the property" owners  before final decisions wore made.  Mr. J. H. Keith "of South Sumas  protested against a vote being,taken  at that meeting as he claimed that  the property owners had not been informed that a vote would be taken.  Tommy Lewis, Jacob Kink, J. II.  Wilson also raised - objections, ' but.  they were mainly based on misii;ulor-  standings which were eventuu,'iy  cleared up.  There was a shori/jiiformal .discussion after tht? principal" business "had  been transacted in which it was 'kKfloated that, there should bo soma  tlement Board to replace Mr. Neleias  while it was thought advisable that  the advisory board, which had done  such yeoman serv'ce should rein-tin j  active.

P., i'or the Fraser Valley  declared that while Orientals had  performed essential labor in certain  British Columbia industries, Oriental  immigration in future must be placed  on a basis of national requirements  and sentiment must be dropped.  If British Colubia is to be retained  as a white man's country, then there  must be restrictions on Oriental immigration. Mr. Stacey favored the  idea of a federal department of Can-  ad ianizaf ion to work in co-operation  with the provincial school systems.  Speaking on the general subject  of education of aliens, Mr. Stacey  said that perhaps he thought the  Canadian public school system offered the only solution of the problem,  lie endorsed the idea of a Federal  department of Canadianization to  work in co-operation with the provincial school systems, and he said,  that it had been clearly understood  by all immigrants settling in Canada  that Canada was a free country, not  in the sense that its citizens might,  think and act in anw way that suited  hem, but in the sense that they were  free Io enjoy the rights of citizenship  in common with the rest of us.

C. Berry Growers held their  firpi' meeting last week in the Boa'.d  o: Trade roms, Vancouver, since incorporation on March 1. Officers  were elected and discussed activities  for the year.  The association is composed of  representatives of the various fruit  growers' and associated bodies in the  province and is organized for the following purposes:  Extending the markets for small  fruits.grown in British Columbia, arranging for distribution at any one  point, ,to establish a .satisfactory status between producer and consumer,  and to do everything possible (.0 assist the returned soldiers who are  embarking in the small fruit industry  It is not expected that the association will be able to accomplish  much along the line of its objects  this year on account of having been  organized so late in the year, but it  hopes to do beneficial work on behalf of producer and consumer next  year. Among the matters that will  receive attention are the buying of  berry growers' supplies en bloc or in  some way so as to minimize expenses  curtailment of overhead expenses of  marketing, cutting down excessive  handling charges, and other endeavors of a(like nature.  Officers of the association state  that organization does not necessarily  mean a rise in prices but rather that  both producer and consumer will receive more equitable treatment than  in the past.  Directors were elected at the meeting as follows: Messrs W. J. Man-  son of'the Fruit and Mercantile Exchange at Hatzic, H. A. McNaughton  of the Gordon Head Fruit Growers'.  Association on Vancouver Island,' G.  H. Moody of the Fruit and Mercantile  Exchange, Hatzic, C. P. Metcalfe of  the Maple Ridge Fiuit Growers' Association, G. Bonallo of the Burnaby  Lake Fruit Growers' Association, T.  E. Ladner of the Central Park Fruit  Growers' Association and-W. J. Galloway of the Chilliwack Co-operative  Fruit Growers' Association.  Mr. Manson was elected president  of the association. Mr. H. A. McNaughton, vice-president, and Mr. G.  H.  Moody, secretary-treasurer.  In the opinion of some of those  who attended the- meteing, considerable more acreage will be brought  under cultivation this ye ar than formerly. This will be especially the  case in Chilliwack district, where it  is stated that 150 returned men have  taken up small holdings which will  be operated in raising chickens and  small fruits. It is expected that the  strawberries short on account  of the frosts. Prospects for a good  raspberry crop are favorable.

Act  tabkd in the Legislative Assembly on  Friday by Hon. Dr. King, minister of  public works. By it the province is  divided into two traffic districts No. 1  to include Vancouver Island and that  part of the lower mainland in which  Vancouver and surrounding settled  districts are located; No. 2, the remainder of the province.  The change in the rule of the road  in district number one will take effect on December 31, 192 1, although  provision is made for the lieutenant-  governor-in-council by. proclamation  making it effectivo at an earlier date  either as to the whole or any part  of the district. In district number  2 Cue change will take effect on July  1 5 next.  The bill also provides for the new  system of classification of highways  into "primary" "secondary" and "local" highways, such classification to  be made by the minister of public  vorks and to be ratified by agreement between the minister and muni-  ; The attorney-general has placed  before the province the certain prospect of one prohibition plebiscite and  , the posibi.lity of two. After three  yrars of prohibition the people will  have an opporutnity to pronounce en  the merits of the system now in operation with the amendments to he enacted  this  session.  |     The choice will probably    be  between   bone  dry  and   some  form   of  | government control Then should the  people decide on prohibition    it    Is  likely  a  second   referendum   will   be  placed before the    people    regarding  ! inte rprovincial trade.  Undoubtedly prohibition will carry  and carry big, but the concensus of  opinion may have'changed somewhat  since the days before Finyay treked  south. There appears to have been  an awful thirst epidemic about that  time which does not appear to have  abated much since that date.  The voting will however be much  different this time as the men are all  home from overseas and the enfranchisement of women is complete.  J. G. Cook, formerly collector of  motor revenues at Vancouver, was  ! the subject of questions by Mr. Bowser in the House, and Attorney-General Farris replied that Cook was ap-  ' pointed to the position on Sept. 1,  1919, at a salary of $100 a month.  There is at present a shortage in his  accounts of $4,645.39, being collect-  ! ions of game licences and motor licences not accounted for. As to where  Cook is at the present time the attorney-general admits he is unaware.  He was bonded by' the government  with the Dominion Guarantee & Accident Insurance Company for  $4000 and they have been informed  that a cheque has been forwarded to  cover the amount of the bond. But  even at that the government is ��������� apparently 'out ��������� some   $645.  REGULAR  MEETING   M.   C.   W.

A specimen contract from Vancouver Public Libra ry was brought up  in the correspondence, and negotiations are under way whereby the  Public Library of Mission City will  have a new supply of 100 books every  three months, totalling 4 00 new  books a year. Under these conditions  of contract greater care must be given books by those borrowing them  and it was decided that only the Librarians should hold the keys.
