Following the con- ditions of expansion due to the war, a period of contraction was inevitable. Restriction of credit involving a certain limitation of production and business has been universal, hut this dominion has been less affected than other coun- tries and a feeling of confidence prevails.

"In spite of this contraction, the annual revenue of the country has been well maintained, and ray advisers considered that certain taxes, imposed in part to check extravagant purchasing, had ful- filled their, purpose and might be withdrawn. Accordingly, with a few exceptions, these taxes have been remitted, freeiug industry and business and thus promoting employment. UNEMPLOYMENT "Unemployment, the world-wide result of the conditions to which I have referred, though less wide- spread in Citnada than elsewhere, has received the most anxious con- sideration.
