The present Loan Estimates disclose that we are about to borrow a farther sou of £10,000.000, which will bring the total of loan,indebtedness up to over £»5,000,000, and the question arises, how far we are justi- fied in becoming parties to such a debt. Over £¡,000,000 is allotted to various works in different parts of the North, but what -guarantee have we that that sub will be actually expended in the districts to which it is allotted. For instance, the late Govern- ment on the occasion of the last loan set down £150,000 for railway works at Bowen, which has never been carried oat- Now £100,000 is down in thai next loan for similar purpose. What has become of the first som, and what may beeuue of the second, is hard to say. Separation will at least enable U3 to get rid of a liability which does not belong to us,...
