Mr. FIELD IXG.
It is made up on the basis of the allowance made to the province of Manitoba some years ago, the sum of $27.77 per head, the same rate as was allowed Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Afterwards in the re-adjustment in the debt accounts that sum was increased to $32.43 so that the sum which has been taken in the other provinces was accepted as the basis of this calculation.
