PROHIBITION ALWAYS MEANS REDUCED COST OF LIVING.
The* second financial year in Manitoba under prohibition has just ended, and the Minister for Finance gave the Assembly rather an unique Budget speech the other day. His financial statement was the second one compiled since prohibition wa-s carried. Every column tells the same story of healthy development, extended enterprise, and all round go-aheadness. Modern electric power for factory, farm, workshop, and home, telephone extensions, * new agricultural colleges and demonstration farms, new roads, and national apparatus for national well-boring were among the works successfully financed throughout-the year. Over and above this gigantic expenditure the Budget Statement shows a grand surplus of 34,_00,000 dollars (£6,100,000). The increase of assets o\er the assets of the previous year are 4,500,000 dollars (a shade under £1,000,000). These are the works that will help repatriation. A vote for prohibition is a vote for reduced cost of living. A vote for prohibition is a vote for prosperity, home, fresh avenues of employment, higher wages, shorter hours, a higher standard of living, and increased comfort, health, and prosperity all round. Vote for the Child and the Nation on Thursday next. 4
