BRITISH BUDGET. NAVY COST HEAVY. DEFICIT ESTIMATED. LONDON, Maj; 5tli. • There was a fair attendance in the House of Commons, when Mr. Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, introduced the Budget. The revenue of 1913-14, he said, balanced the expenditure, thanks to the unexampled trade boom, but the naval expenditure had greatly exceed ed all anticipations. In 1909 it was anticipated that it would amount to £44,000,000, because at tlie time there was abnormal activity in shipbuild ing; but it. was thought . that the amount would revert to £40,000,000. Unfortunately there had been an in 1 crease in shipbuilding projgrammes abroad, and there was also the con* tinental situation to take into ac count. He was unable to make pro posals for the relief of local taxation without, incurring the odium of pro posing fresh taxation. The business outlook war, .particularly baffling, bTit the consensus of amnion \vas that the existing depression was shallow, and would not iast Jong. The estim...

The' chairman, in moving the adop tion ot the report, said that, looking to the course of events during the past year, it would not have been a matter of surprise it he had been fore-: ed to report a falllng-off in new busi ness. The prolonged strike in New Zealand led to a serious dislocation i ot business in the Dominion, and the small-pox scare in Sydney interfered with the ordinary operations. Not withstanding ■ these circumstances, however, the new business of the -past year, in both the ordinary and indus trial departments, was in excess of that of any previous year.

MR. MoKINNON'S SPEECH. ADVERSE CRITICISM. "GO SLOW" POLICY RIDICULED. No one would suspect from the se date and serious complexion the Minis ter of Railways usually preserves (writes the "Age") that beneath his sober mein lurked a bubbling cas cade of racy humor. President Wil son told some American interviewers recently that below the icy stoicism he displayed to the outside world was often the burning caldron of a vol cano. When we get a glimpse in side Mr. McKinno»> while rusticat ing at * Warracknabeal and relaxed from the trammels of official life, the , implacable administrator reveals a" rollicking jester, with*, a capacity for broad fun that has warned the Wim mera of the deceptive nature of ap pearances.

SPARROW SHOOTING. GOOD FORM SHOWN. The Warracknabeal GunClub open* ed the season 011 Wednesday with a £5 sparrow match and sweepstakes, and although this was the first shoot for the season, some very good form was shown. The veteran, Mr. ID. MeColl, was in fine form, and gave the younger wing' shots an idea of how to wield the weapon to most advantage. Although Mr. McCol! has been shooting many years, he still retains his keen eye and steady nerve, and, on a day like Wednesday it takes a good shot to beat him. Out of 33 birds trapped to him lie only missed four birds, and the use of the second barrel was only,necessary Ave times. This is a fine performance,, and takes some beating.
