McLean Cuts B.C's
Budget By Million
Perhaps, the chief feature of any
session of the British Columbia
Legislature is the budget. On
Monday of this week Hon. J. D.
MacLean, minister of finance,
made his first budget speech, and
ife was ono of the most illuminating
documents ever presented to the
Houpe in Victoria.
_ Most important of the announce^
ments contained therein waB that
the estimated expenditures of the
next fiscal year have been reduced
by $1,103,315. The salary list has
been cut 8142,477. The estimated
revenue is given as only $19,246
lees than i'or the current year.
Provisions have been made for
sinking funds on Pacific Great
Eastern Railway guaranteed stock
outstanding, which will retire the
debt in forty years. The assets of
the province over, liabilities are
given by the minister of finance as
Assets on agricultural lands,
buildingB and mercaofcile timber of
the province are shown as $700,-
000,000, or $1,334 for every unit
of population in British Columbia.
Hon. Dr. MacLean gives^fehe net
debt of the province as $41,622,402.
He shows that a saving of $798,-
413 has been effected by refunding
short term:.six per cent, bonds into
long term issues.. The debt redemption debt is $19,882,730, or
$26 for every $100 of gross debt.
Other provinces of Canada combined have only redemption provisions of $3.50 per $100.
The budget speech shows that
direct taxation oh taxpayers
amounts to only 40 per cent, of
total revenue. The revenue for
the year ending March 31 last exceeded the estimates by $858,632,
while the revenue-producing debt
brought into the treasury last year
8798,351. Municipalities received
grants amounting to 22J per cent,
of the total provincial revenue, and
Hon.-Dr. MacLean shows that the
municipalities received grants
amounting.to.'$304.3147 more than
was collected within municipal
boundaries.       -
The progress of British Columbia
is shown in tbe statement that
since 1914 there has been an increase in provincial revenue of 139
per cent. _ During the same period
municipal grants have increased
226 per cent. The cost of education has doubled since 1917^ Provincial grants. to .municipalities
which may be used for educational
purposes have increased.; 165 per
cent." 7 ''..-��� ���"; 7 ���-'- ". [_ V ."- -..

in the case of the appeal of the governments of the -western provinces
from 'the d'ecisiou of the Board of
Railway Commissioners in .respect, to
lhe Crow's Nest Pass freight rates,
Premier King announced at-the conclusion of a cabinet meeling. The
Crow's Nest Pass decision and the appeals were the first matters to be taken up at the Cabinet Council, when 16
members of the cabinet were present.
There has been no action taken on
the appeal that the" judgment of tho
Railway Commission should be sel
aside until after whatever hearing
granted.       "
December 4,. it was stated, appeared
to be the earliest date that the hearing could be arranged and, in view of.
the fact that.the western provinces
���must obtain the consent of the Railway Connnissiohabefore carrying their
caseVo the Supreme Court of Canada,
'it was hoped that the commission
would make it possible to grant a.
hearing at' the same time, although
Thursday, November^, had been fixed as the date for the commission's
hearing.      -

country at a dinner given in her,honor here. Miss Goldman spent a"eon-
isderable part of lier exile in Russia,

The oppressed masses in. Russia,
she said, wero being silenced as they
never were under the Czar, and all
ideals .had been discredited by tho
ruling forces in that country. Bolshevism, she characterized as an
international disease, and she promised to light hereafter, wherever she
might be, for the principles of liberty, which,, were the most essential
things in human life.
. "To call the present Soviet Government a worker's experiment is tho
most preposterous lie ever told," Miss
Goldman told her audience.

Provinces Separately

havc another conference on tho question of returning to tha province its
natural resources in public lands and

western, while the later plan i.s to deal

To Preserve Peace
British, French and Belgian Pact
Urged For European Harmony

work for such a pact. The foreign

Washington. ��� President Coolidge
declared in an address before tho annual meeling of the Association of
Land Grant Colleges, that the government would omit no effort to prevent a repetition of recent misfortunes
involving agriculture, but assured
them that the farmer also must readjust his methods of production and
marketing "until he comes witli In sight
of the new day."
It was the lirst public address .Mr..
Coolidge has made since the election,,
and was devoted to a discussion of
agriculture, which is the principal subject before the college representatives,
at their conference.
The immediate problem, the -president said, is to bridge over the difficulties' resulting from abnormal and
war-stimulated surpluses, while, he
added, preparation'must be made also-
for the" time fast approaching when,
"wo are likely to be one of the greatest of the agricultural"buying nations.'"
"The hope lies," he declared, "in
organizations and methods whicli look
to economies and efficiencies in producing and distributing."      ,    .
Meanwhile, the president urged that
the educators and farm leaders turn
their attention to scientific marketing..
The agriculture problem today, he insisted, is not on the side of produc;
tion, but on the side of distribution..
Too little thought has been given to-
this phase, he added.

The First Scout
The following is takeD from the
Sunday Companion and tells how
General Baden-Powell commenced
tha Scout movement:
"Jimmy Jenkins lived in Islington���at least, he lived in a part of
it which was crowded with folk,
most of whom thought themselves
���well off if they had two rooms for
their family. That didn't leave
much Bpace to play in, so Jimmy
played in the streets. Tipcat, a
game where you run away if the
"cat" flies through a window, and
then comes back looking as if you
knew nothing about it���not youl
Cricket, with a pile oftetonea for a
wicket, any bit of wood for a bat,
and any kind of ball! Football,

couldn't playtruaht,f which he.did
.often as he dared; and, as forfthe
rest bf his life, just mooching about.
Yes,; he was .. a, regular little

But in all his knocking about in
. crowded  : streets   arid    alleys; he
.didn't get much air. His cheeks
..were pale underneath the dirt. ;He
had a nasty cough, arid he weighed

put him through exercises, and bit

Then,   when   the" summer-time

My, how Jimmy Jeaklas enjoyed iti And sometimes the captain
jnst spoke a few words to tfasm in
a quiet way abottt a /Boy who lived
in the Long Ago, Who dida't think
it kiddish to obey His parents, and 1
afterwards, when He became a
man, went about thinking that the
best fun in all the world was to go
round being of use to other folk. "
When Jimmy Jenkins came back
he'd caught the complaint. He'd
learnt the Scout Law. Ho'd learnt
to act with other people, in a kind
of league. He'd learnt to aim to
do one good deed every day. And
he came back different inside.
There were forty of them in his
company, and thoy were al! different, too. Ah, his mother couldu't
make it out! And when he hung
about to see if he could be of any
use, and offered to run the errauds
and peel the potatoes, ahe looked
at him as if she thought he was
too good to live.
Yes, THAT was how they
changed Jimmy Jenkins and thousands of others in all our big cities
who were like him. They did it
in Australia and Canada and
America and France, and���oh,
everywhere. And this league of
boys that they called the Boy Scout
movement, caught on all over the
world, for the idea which once was
only an idea in General Baden-
Powell's mind���the idea that boys
who could act together for mischief,
and become hooligans, could be got
to act together in Scout leagues���
had worked wonder?.
The little first band has become
a mighty army of millions. We
came to rely on them during the
War for many things. They flew
through the Btreeta after a raid,
sounding the "All Clear'' signal on
their bugles. They curried messages. They proved a blessing all
round. Yes, these very boys who
once might have been hooligans.
Why, only a few weeks ago
many thousands of them came to
Wembley from all parts, and there
they camped out, drilled and had a
great review. And afterwards the
Prince' of Wales spoke to them, and
pointed out that now they were all
bound together in the League of
Boy Scouts, they w��re like a
bundle of sticks which, so long as
it held together nothing could
break. But if they were separated
they could be broken easily. And
he begged them to hold together,
to do.grand and useful work in .the
world, and to stand against wrong,
arid when they heard him .they,
just cheered themselves hoarse.';'
