So deep in the mire are Manitoba Conservatives and unable to get out that they are now trying to haul tha Liberals into the mud with them. tunately, the Liberals have not hesi- agree to an. immediate in- quiry of the Tory charges, something that cou'id not be said of the Tories when the liberals "made their charg- es concerning the. graft in the con- struction of the Parliament buildings. -An Ottawa dispatch to a "Winnipeg paper says: "It is believed here that Ron.

Ths expenditure for tte year, he said, would over 61 for war pur- poses'.was to be borrowed from the British government, leaving 060 to be raised in other ways. To meet this retirement as far as pos- sible he proposed that additional tax- ation Imposed .-.sufficient to raise in addition to the which he expected to get on the old rates of customs and excise duty. In other words Mr. White pro- posed with the aid of his new and increased taxes to raise during tho yeav, compared with for the preceding twelve months, a net increase of "The chief source and mainstay ot our said the Minister, "is the tariff, nnd it is to this we must look principally ior relief of our pres- ent financial conditions." Accordingly 'the Finance Minister proceeded to outline t-lie tariff increases which he had decided were, with 'same exceptions, a horizontal in- crease of tbe import duties of 5 per ctnt. on British goods and 7-1 per cent, on foreign imports. From these increased duties Mr. White said be expected to obtain an increased rev- wue of from to OM, while the special taxes and tans he expected would yield from to The Guide at the time condemned the in- crease of the tariff because oi its pro- tective character, and also ventured to express the opinion that the in- creased duties would produce little i any increased revenue, their efiect be- ing rathn to reduce imports and thus defeat their own purpose so far as raising revenue was concerned. A1 tbe same time it was stated thai goods formerly on the free list anc now taxed at 5 per cent, or 7J per would certainly yield some rev- and if there should be any in- crease ia the.returns it would be at- tributable to. these duties.

The new tariff came into fores.on February 12 "aad the special taxes and' stamp taxes on April oi May is the first complete month in which the new budget: was in complete op- eration. The report from Ottawa says "The total revenue of the Do- minion for the month for customs, excise and special taxation amounted to as against 1S5.43 for the month of May, 19H, or a falling oS of Ac- cording to the Finance Minister's pro- ihecies the revenues for the year were ,o increase by or at the rate ol a month, but in- stead we have an actual decliae of a comparatively small Amount. Tbe rev- enue from special and stamp taxes was, of course, all gain, and the ex- cise receipts 'showed a gain of 817.84 for the, month, so 'that the de- crease in customs receipts was actu- ally larger than tie figure above giv- en.
