olonco on the part of a money

Tkoll for Mr. Alhortou to claim that
tlm futuro mcrcaso of dividends
was in viow, but the public will
likely prefer to regard this as a
happy after thought. All tho same,
it is a consideration well worthy
of boing a cause of reflection to
other pbiuting companies. There

improved conduct generally.

the membora of the government

their stewardship to parliament

every four or five years, taxpayers
have not as a rule much cause for
suspicion or to fear that tho pub
