Mr. Speaker an I Gentlemen of

It is not my intention on this

_L


mass ofstn tistics, a? the Esti-
mates will be immediately pre-
sented to you and they will be
accompanied by detailed re-
turns. 1 may however briefly
say that, as far as can be esti-
mated, we shall be confronted
with a deficit on the 31st proxi-
mo af some i winch does
not include expenditure on the
Defence^lccouiit nor interest on
overdrafts at the Crown Agents
and the local Bank.
Should tlie war continue, it
is likely that, even after cutting
down the expenditure to as low
a ijgure as is compatible w uii
efficient administration, thin
will beadeficit of "17,000 <>n
the transactions of the financial
year beginning on the 1st of
April next, again not including
expenditure on the Defence Ac-
Count and Miti-rest.
It u ill be your task Gentle
men to find the wavs and mean's
which will enable the Colony
to hold its own. The Govern
ment would he failing in its du-
ty if it did tiut represent to you
the manner in which it thinks
the situation should be met.
rhis will he done when the Es-
timates are submitted to you,
hut I wish to make it clear that
the recommendations the Go\
ernment may make in this re-
pecl do not of course in anv
way biier your undoubted
right, as ihe Representatives 1 '
the people, to propose anv other
means of raising revenue winch
may commend themselves to
you
I do not think that thi se
figures -;ivc u-;inv reason to b<
downhearted. Von, Public Debt
aP the present date is onlj
I I '- and is being paid off at
the rate of over ,ooa yeai
I be Colony cannot hope to de-
velop.- if the c-ost of all schemes
of progress is to be met from
current taxation.
Acting on the informal re-
commendation of the begisla.
hire a bum of 10,000 was re-
mitted to and gratefully accept-
d by I I is Majesty's m aid of tho \Y;ti, and I make
110 doubt (ha t the action taken
' ill ret :eive t in- unanimous en
dorsement of yout I lonourable
i loilsr.
In other rejects tie- Colony
has done we I 1. I understand that
.1 sum of over "3000 has h en
contributed by the people to the
Prince of Wales' National 1 v<
bef F midland for other purposes,
and that our citizens are unit-
ing 111 sendi ng clothing, grape
fruit and other articles for the
sufferers at home.
In addition, a considerable
number of volunteers have en-
rolled themselves for service in
His Majesty's Navy, and al-
though, as you will have learnt
from the telegraphic correspon -
dence recently published the
Admiralty have not as yet been
able to utilize their services. I
am not without hopes that their
desire may yet be gratified.
Sir President and Honourable
