Credit, in the copfid'erico it inspires, Is an asset both individually and na- tionally. With this in mind the 1'rov- ince has much to congratulate itself over in the. surplus over expenditure, as shown in the figure's from the pub- lic accounts brought into the Lesis: laturo by.Hon. C. K. Mitchell, the Pro- vincial Treasurer. With all the demands made on Gov- ernments, and with the difficulty too often of resisting these demands, the showing in the public accounts spells its own praise in that it betokens o very careful consideration of theso demands, relative to the length of the purse of ihe Government, and a judic- ious desire to be conservative in ex- pentiiUirc, in the proper sensing what fhe credit of the Province means in the showing of a balance on the right side of the ledger. The position of Provincial Treasur- er is a responsible and an onerous one, where sometimes it is difficult to resist the temptation to yield, in the cmlls.made on the-public purse, to the blandishment wiijeh popularity as some- regard it gives. In this matter It may be said that the custodian of the public purse has to be bomb-proof, without standing in the way of what is legitimately necessary for the pub- lic welfare. With this in mind, and the stress paid to practical econ- omy which the surplus in the public accounts shows, it may well be regard- ed to ba an achievement -which in times like these a Minister of the Crown in the capacity of Provincial Treasurer may pride himself on. twe-nty fourth Ihe sum has to Jind.

It shows that Germany has not yet realized the essential facts of the situation." When Mr. Lloyd Georgo mentions the amount to be paid by Germany this year, he refers to the arrange- ment for payments of the sum of 55 billions fixed at the Paris Conference.

If Germany Is entitled to any com-1 migration In the plight In which; she claims she is placed. In J% enforce- ment ot the indemnity, ''In., the steps now taken by the AJltesv'riie has for- feited If' by her rnthlessness during the war and in the consideration of what can only be too well Imagined her conduct would be were she in the position, should the fortunes of war have favored -her, to enforce her de- mands on a defeated foe. Th'la apart, any consideration she claims Is denied to her In that she has not made the least attempt to liquidate her debt to the Allies. All her endeavors have been to stall off the issue and to seek to evade payment of what she herself have .ruthlessly exacted, given the chance. She has made no attempt lo set her house in order towards meeting her liability. On the contrary in her own internal financing she has played the old role of Germany over all, in considering her own needs first and ignoring her treaty obllca- tions to the Allies. The answer to Germany's plea of poverty is given by Raymond Ppincare, ex-President of the French Republic and Turin on Sunday. On Friday last Mr. and Mrs. T. A.
