George E, Foster, formerly tinancc minister of Canada under the Conservative regime, and now the .principal financial critic on the oppo- sition side, took occasion in the House to criticize the increase in the civil government expenses, and in re- ply Hon. W. S. Fielding not only turned the tables on Mr. Foster, but save some interesting facts concern- ing that department on the -govern- work. According to Hansard, (Nov. page 230, Mr. Foster said :________ Before you leave the Chair, Mr. Speaker, I wish to make a few re- marks on the'subject of the ernment expenses, which, I under- stand, it is proposed to take up to- day. I was talking not long ago with a very intelligent man, who takes as-deep and continuous and in- terest in the public affairs of this country, probably, as any- other man in it, and, in looking over some fig- vires of our expenditures, or rather estimates of expenditure as set forth in the main estimates, and contrast- ing them with the expenditures ot" last year, he made the statement that he would not have believed it to be true were it not before him in a most incontrovertible way. That is, he expressed his utter astonishment that expenditures in these lines had 3one to the limit to which they have. I believe that this is by no means an isolated case. Yet I 'believe that the people of this country, for whatever reason, have not any adequate idea, in the first place, of the cxtraordin- ary large sums to which these expen- ditures have grown, or, in the sec- ond place of the extraordinary rapid rate at which these expenditures have increased. It may be that the mem- bers of His Majesty's opposition are at fault for not having putf these matters before the people. Certainly, some things are different now from what they were before. While we were in. government and the party on that side were in opposition, every j Liberal and Grit paper, large and i small, printed repeatedly in large let- i ters, kept constantly before the peo- pie, the increasing expenditures of the country, until by daily repetition, by almost hourly review the people had it impressed upon them that there was a dangerously large expenditure and a dangerously rapid increase in that expenditure. But that large and influential portion of the press is to- -day absolutely, or almost absolutely, with regard to the growing ex- penditure of Canada. There are no more large headlines in these papers. no more reiterated expressions in j large figures and bold-faced type i warning the -people of danger, nbt- withstanding the rapid increase of ex- penditure that is taking place. Our i own mean by that the press I that geaerally voices the opinion of j the Liberal-Conservative party may i have failed in this respect, as we as i members of this House may have failed, and that may be a good reason j ;vhy the country as a whole is not alarmed. The great convention of 1893 made a unanimous proclamation that they viewed with alarm the large and growing expenditures of the country, and th'r; rapidly increasing debt of the country. To-day the people do not seem to be alarmed. That condi- tion is not prevalent in the country, jit seems, and my view of it is that I the people, in a time of comparative every chronic rheumatic to throw away all medicines, all liniments, all plasters, nnd cive MUNYON'S RHEUMA- TISM REMEDY a trial.

When these gentlemen sitting oppo- site were in opposition, there was nothing about which they thundered and vdlleyed with more persistence and vehemence than the increase and quantity of the expenditures upon the different services of the country. If there was one subject more than an- other that they paid especial atten- tion to, it 'was the item of civil gov- ernment expenditures. They talked about the number of people that fill- ed the corridors and were placed in the offices in the city of Ottawa they talked about the extravagant salaries that were- paid; they talked about thc useless men and women that were employed, and they made out a strong point that if they came into power they would reduce this civil government expenditure, they j would root out thc useless officers, j and they would put in just a suffi-' eient number to carry on the work that they could do it with elsewhere, j land that they would effect notable startling one Health Never Fails to R Gray Hair to its Natural Color and Beauty.

In 1908-9, prosperity and of large dealings, have had their minds more upon their own business than upon the business trans- acted under the administration of the Dominion and conse- quently have not taken time to in- economics. Now what has happened In 1883- ;in 1909-10, under the same conditions in 1910-11, under the same conditions, an in- 4, civil government cost this country j crcasc in this last }-ear Oj pretty thirteen years i ncarly wards, in 1895-6, when the Liberal- j into accouirt thc necessary in- ,of power, civil government cost this, crease owi to incrcased business, form themselves with respect to this j C0untrv an increase of matter. Well, I think it is the part' of His Majesty's opposition in this- my hon. friend's 0gUTes, but it ap- pears to me that there are Some oth- er things which he ought fairly to have introduced into the discussion. Now, the business of thc country may be measured in various ways. The revenue of the country is one measure, and increased revenue means increased revenue means increased cost of collection. Increased revenue is usually followed by increased ex- penditure and increased expenditure involves increased cost of manage- ment in every department of the gov- ernment. Had my hon. friend looked at it fromNthat point o[ view he would be obliged to tell us that in the year ending the 30th June, 1883, the revenue of the country was thir- ty-five and three-quarter millions, that in the year ending the 30th of June, 1895, the revenue had actually fallen short and the country was making no progress. It was a period of comparative stagnation, and so for the year ending the 30th June. 1895 the revenue was less than 000, 000 'and the highest revenue of any of the years my hon. friend cited was about If my hon. friend is going to make comparison as between two periods, one period a period when the' northwest terri- tories were not being filled as they no growth was taking place in Can- ada, then my hon. friend should have told us of these conditions and com- pared them with the prosperous con- ditions of the country when'the rev- showing stagnation all along the line, My hon. friend (Mr. Fisher) reminds me that according to the statement of the hon. gentleman's own statement his government in- creased the expenditures of toe Civil Service more than 30 per cent; at a "time when the country was in a con- dition of stagnation, and while it is true that we have increased the ex- penditure we have increased it only to -meet the expansion of- the business of the country. I am quite sure that upon careful examination it will be found that the expenditure has only kept pace with the growing needs of Canada. Then, turning from the Civil Service the hon. gentleman made reference -to the general .expen- diture, I would remind him that while he and hon. gentlemen opposite are ready to condemn the increased expenditure generally, yet when you {Continued on Page Ten.) more than in it, and of the press which is favorable to our view of the question, to see to it that these ex- penditures are 'brought Lt-'ore the people, that they are understood by the people, and then, absolutely desire that that shall be the .rule, then the people are the ar- biters in the final decision of the And so 1 am going to take up this matter of civil government expenditures, and just for a moment place two or three facts before the House in the hope that ILey will get to the country, that .they may form an impressions, and that at least'the minds of the people shall be directed to what is going on so that they may' form their own conclusions whe- ther they consider it to be a proper j expenditure or not. take into account, if you like, the or a little over thirty per increased saiarics which came into thirteen years afterwards, m in i908 tafec into account the partly, outside the House. 1907_8) dvil government cost this i of when you counlry an increase of j all lhat stjU is a or a little over fifty per j mishtv marsin Of, 'i believe, ab- cent.
