WELLINGTON, Jl’.ve 12
The Premier is busily engaged on the Financial Statement. It is unlikely that any reduction of taxation will be proposed, as some L 120,000 more will be thrown on to the Consolidated Fund than before, in the shape of buildings and other services hitherto paid out of loan. The Public Works Statement will be much the same length as usual. The Minister will have to go over the regular ground this year, at all events, though each Minister on whom sections of the former Public Works Department have devolved will take charge of his own estimates. Only LoOO.OOO was spent out of the loan last year, exclusive of the cost of raising it, and with care Ministers think it might be made to last for five years. The Government have received a request from the Mayor of Auckland to send a telegram of tjyntpaithy to the United States* hut they have not decided whether it is heceßEftfry.
