Mr. CALDWELL:

He has to send for

the index first under the proposed arrangement, in order to find out where he will find the reference he wants, but if the index is printed with each volume he will be able to find his reference in any volume, and if it is not in the volume which he has got, all he has to do is send for the volume in which it appears, just the same as if he had referred to the index.

Mr. CALDWELL:

In view of the statement made. I would like to quote the New Brunswick Act, because New Brunswick as a province has not a rural credit act. It passed an act in 1923 giving the municipalities authority to issue bonds and borrow money and set up municipal farm loan organizations. The thing was so impracticable that no municipality would undertake it. It would mean we would have fifteen farm loan organizations in the little province of New Brunswick, each with an overhead which would make it impossible to handle a farm loan scheme with any hope of success.

Mr. CALDWELL:

I am afraid they will not choose to; they never have chosen before. We asked our provincial government for bread and they gave us a stone. I am much disappointed. I thought from the research work that had been carried on by Dr. Tory and from the recommendations from the Banking and Commerce Committee along this line, this government would bring down a real rural credits act of its own, to be administered, possibly, by provincial boards. But this act will be of no benefit in New Brunswick, and I doubt if it will to any of the Maritime provinces. It may be of some benefit to some provinces that have rural credit acts in operation; it will enable them to secure additional money to carry on. I am surprised that there is not some limit set to the amount each province will be allowed to get from the Dominion government under this act. Suppose Ontario makes an application to-morrow for $10,000,000 under this act, what is going to happen?

Mr. CALDWELL:

Will this amendment

not increase the administrative cost of the business as compared with the cost of the other annuities? It will cost as much to issue
