Bring your watch to us and let us examine it. C. Ross Tate The Sign of the Watch Ford St, near City Hall COLEMAN skirmishes over the new system of accounting which the Minister of Marine and Fisheries has introduced into his department with a view to keeping closer check on expendi- ture, and to stopping waste. The Minister employed to prepare this system, the firm of Gunn, Rich- ards Co., production engineers, and public accountants, of New York, who had done good work for the United States Government and the Intercolonial Railway. The firm has a staff made "p nf mo" "f ex- perience in steel and iron and other factories, and of expert chartered ac- countants. The former are the pro- duction engineers. They are especi- ally experienced in working out costs; t.hey advise in what way--expensiis can be reduced; they put in schemes for organizing agencies so that there will be a proper check on goods com- ing in, in stock, and goods going out, and also so that the head office, in the reports sent to them from time to time, may know exactly what is going on. They ascertiin whether em ployoes are giving an adequate re turn in services for the pay they re ccive; and they advise as to increas ing the efficiency of labor, and poin out where expenditure can be saved All this is dovetailed into the sys tern of accounting. A result is, there fore, obtained "that no ordinary ac counting can give. The minister or his deputy, in Ot tawa, has the strings of his depart rnent firmly in his grasp. He can watch what his officials are doing ii distant parts of the Dominion; and with thorough and timely inspection a standard of efficiency is attaine that is impossible where there "ha been no complete union between th method of accounting and reportin and the actual work done. The ac- counting presents, in the most illum- inating and reliable manner, the fig- ures; and the reporting presents the vital facts in such a way as to give the man at tin; head office a clear idea of what is going on. It can eas- ily be seen that the department in one yi-ar may save the whole amount that has bf-L-n paid out to put in the 1 of these people to British Columbia. Mr. King's report discusses the mat- er in its .various, -phases, explains he causes of the large influx of Hin- loos into British Columbia last year and steps have been taken to prevent my recurrence of a much esteemed farmer of this dis- trict and only-settled here recently.
