The money is used for that purpose. I do not know what the situation will be next year, but in so far as regards this class of expenditure at the present time, it is briefly this: On account of the financial conditions existing in certain countries of Europe, we find it absolutely necessary to provide credits if certain classes of our products in this country are to secure a market. We find that is necessary this year. What the conditions will be next year, I do not know but in the case of Great Britain it is conceivable she will not be able to supply the funds necessary for this purpose. It may be true, in the case of France, Italy, and other countries with whom we wish to do business, that if we wish to carry out that intention it may be absolutely necessary for the people of this country to raise money in Canada to provide that' credit in order that we may pay our own people for the products they raise before these products can be sent overseas.
