I certify that the foregoing Balance-sheet is in agreement with the books of the Government of the
Province of British Columbia as at 31st March, 1934.
Investment for Redemption of B.C. Stock and Debentures.—Deposits for the fiscal year to the credit of
the Minister of Finance as Trustee for the Sinking Funds were in arrears at 31st March, 1934, to the
extent of $2,247,568.75.    The aggregate arrears to 31st March, 1934, amount to the sum of $3,688,220.75.
Highways.—This account represents replacement value of Highways as at 31st March, 1926, in accordance with a schedule of mileage and classification certified by the Public Works Engineer, to which has been
added, in subsequent years, the capital expenditure out of Loans.
Pacific Great Eastern Railway Co.—This asset is carried at book value, as the ultimate realizable value
cannot be determined at this date.
In accordance with the terms of the " Pacific Great Eastern Construction Loan Act, 1928," the operating
deficit of the Railway has been met by advances charged to the said Loan.
"Dyking Assessments Adjustment Act, 1905," and " Dewdney. Dyking District Relief Act, 1929."—The
amounts due from the districts are included at book value. The ultimate realizable value cannot be teter-
mined at this date.
Equipment Fund.—The deficiency in the Fund at 31st March, 1934, was $516,656.13, largely due to the
employment, during the past two .fiscal years, of Equipment Fund units on maintenance-work, free of rental
clfarges.
Land Settlement Board (except Sumas Development).—These advances are included at book value, as
the realizable value of unsold land and balances due to the Board cannot, at the present time, be determined.
University Endowment Lands Administration Account.—The amount which may be recovered out of
these advances cannot be determined at this date.
