STATE FINANCE. We noticed in a recent issue the in crease of State expenditure. Two warning voices were heard in the State. Assembly this week pitched in the same key-those of Mr, Mc Leod and Mr. Mackay, The latter showed that since 1906 the expendi ture on ordinary services had in creased from £4,522,000 to '£7,544,000 or 66 per cent, Many of these in creases could be justified, amongst these Education, Lands, Forests and Agriculture and to some extent Pub lic Works, Railways had increased 75 per cent,, but how far it could be justified would only be determin ed by expert survey of the work, The fact remains that in the past seven years the expenditure has in creased over £3,000,000 pet annum, and the railways, our principal earn ing Department is faced with a fall ing surplus. We shall be singularly fortunate. if, during the next ten years we have the uninterrupted run 'of good and fair seasons which' we have enjoyed in the near past, Mr, Watt has left a legacy of inflated ex pend...
