Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen
of the Honourable House of
Assembly.
I thank you for the provision
you have made for the service
oi the current financial year
and for the Votes of Indemnity
you have passed, and appreciate
the important appropriations
you have approved which are to
be utilized, together with the
salaries fixed by law, for the pur
pose of procuring a Nurse Ma
tron and Charge Nurse, and an
officer to aid the Commandant
in his manifold duties.
The estimated revenue for
1916 17 has has been placed at
78,598(81 uce revised to84,598
an additional "6000 having
been added to Customs thus
bringing it up to 72,000) and
the estimated expenditure at
90,0 10 to which lias to be ad
ded a further sum of 0,000 on
account of the Contingents.
Against this revised estimate of
revenue and expenditure which
Shows a prospective deficit
on the year's operations cf
11,402 there was >n the 31st
March last an unexpended bal.
of 12,360 (part of the 25.000
taken from the 30,000 Loan).
On the 1st April last the re
maining portion of Loan, 5,
000, was passed to general rev
enue.
I trust that your decision
to utilize these balances and
thereby avoid the imposition
of additional taxation will
not result in financial embar
rassment hereafter, and thai
the elasticity shewn in tlie
tween Nassau and a port in
Florida during the coming
winter season. Last year io>
360 bushels of tomatoes were
shipped to the United States
via Jacksonville.
In April last 1 was offered
the opportunity of visiting a
number of the Out-Islands,
and the experience I then
gained, in conjunction with
what 1 had previously seen,
have made me tome to the
conclusion that in the best
interests of the Colony very
much greater attention
should be devoted toagricul
ture than is the case at pres
cut, and that the Government
should seriously consider how-
additional encouragement
can best be given to tbeplant
ing of sisal 111 the more remote
( hit-Islands, where a market
for other products is not easi
K available. With a suffi
iency of sisal as a stand by

With reference to the pas-

Govern men t, as vou are aware
was compelled early in Feb-
1 uary last to cancel the con-

the Company's continuous
failure to provide a satisfac

tractors have not as yet taken
advantage of the invitation

in abeyance. The Govern-

ports, although a popular one,
is a precarious and unsatisfa. t
oiy form of livelihood, which
m iiiv opinion should be dis

are dele'erious. I am confident
that a sti adv rind systematic

duce nrorNependable and bene-

more independent people.

prevailed in some quarters of re-

be abandoned.

The condolences of the Leg-

already been expressed to the
King on the great loss sustained
by His Majesty and lbs Empire
in the death of Earl Kitchener,

1 ark that the late Field Mar

the greatest military nations,
owing to the aggression ol the
