The issue and sale ol 5 per cent, bonds made by Ihe province a short time ago had absolutely nothlng to do with the financing of the association. The grant of made by the government, to he used for purposes of organization, is being expended in fitting up and furnishing offices, ad- vertising, printing, procuring hoots and stationery, short, provid- ing the machinery for doing business.
