THE L.N.E.R. ACCOUNTS.

RECEIPTS NEARLY SIX MILLIONS DOWN.

DIVIDEND ONE AGAINST FOUR

BIG FOUR LIST NOW COMPLETE.

Greatly reduced receipts and expenditure are shown in the accounts of the London North-Eastern Railway for 1931, which were issued today.

While the net revenue shows a fall of £1,744,140, the gross receipts of the railway were less than those of 1930 by £5,237,353, and the gross receipts from ancillary businesses were less than those of 1930 by £759, 690, making a total decline in receipts of £5,997,043.

The gross expenditure for the year was less than that of 1930 by £4,216,544.

Including miscellaneous net receipts and charges, etc., the net revenue of the year from all sources was £9,424,610, a decrease of £1,744,140.

The balance brought forward from last year was £80,047.

Subject to final audit, it is intimated these figures indicate that after providing for dividends on the First Preference and five per cent.

BLOOMFIELD UNIONIST ASSOCIATION.

PARLIAMENT TRIBUTE.

ULSTER'S SOCIAL SERVICES.

SPEECH BY CAPTAIN DIXON.

"I have seen many Assemblies on both sides of the Channel, and I venture to say that our House of Commons is the most independent Legislative Assembly for the size of the country in the world."

This tribute to the Northern Ireland Parliament was paid by Captain the Right Hon. Herbert Dixon, D.L., M.P., when he addressed the annual meeting of the Bloomfield Unionist Association held in the club rooms, Albertbridge Road, Belfast, on Thursday evening, over which Alderman Dr. J.D. Williamson, J.P., presided.

Captain Dixon assured them that the House of Commons was worthy of Ulster and was one of the best he had ever seen, and he did not exclude the Opposition. (Applause.) Referring to the Valuation Act, he said that taken by itself it was not a Bill that anyone would like. When the facts came out he thought it would be agreed that the Government in shouldering this measure did one little bit more for the workers of Northern Ireland, who had done so much for them. The Bill had been greatly misunderstood. The time for presenting it to the people was too short, and many of the Government's best followers felt very sore about it. Had he (Captain Dixon) not known all the circumstances he would have felt sore about it also. He then explained the position the Ulster Government was up against in connection with the Imperial Government, who had asked them to carry out their obligations.

The proposition the Prime Minister was up against was this: he had to risk the benefits to the working men, to the widows, and all those people in Ulster who were suffering through no fault of their own from trade depression, or if he did not risk that he had to say "Very well, I will bring this Bill in." On the one side he had to face the terrific unpopularity of bringing in a Bill of this kind, or to face the fact that these benefits might be taken away.

"INEVITABLE" ACCEPTED.

The Bill was through now, and he (Captain Dixon) thanked the property owners for the way in which they had accepted the inevitable. He was glad to say that everyone accepted and swallowed what appeared to be a nasty dose of medicine. He would like to say how very proud he was of the Lord Mayor of Belfast and the Mayor of Derry, who had done their best to make the best case they could, but, the facts having been put before them, they accepted the inevitable and did it most handsomely.

Continuing, he said he would like to inform them of the sum of money which was spent on the social services in Ulster. It totalled £8,756,000. Out of that sum they were spending £7,076,000 in benefits for the working people, such as unemployment, old-age pensions, widows' and orphans' grants, etc.

He asked them -- Could any man go through a constituency such as that or North or West Belfast and state that, although this sum was enormous, they could cut it down? Where would they begin to "cut"? The other million pounds was spent on the police and all the other things that were necessary. This enormous sum of £8,756,000 was controlled and managed by the Ministers of the Northern Government. How much did those Ministers cost them? They cost them 3d per head of the population per annum or the price of two "Telegraphs."

They had been accused of extravagance, too, but it was a poor form of criticism, and showed a poor mentality to criticise along these lines. In the many years that he had been in politics he had never known a man who gave his full time to politics make money.

They had also been criticised in respect of the new House of Parliament and the new Law Courts. They were looked upon by some as extravagance. He pointed out, however, that in the first place they were a gift, and in the second place he thought they were some of the finest things that had ever happened in Belfast. Belfast was a very young city, and it had always been a very ugly city because the men who had made this city were so desperately hard-worked that they had never time to put up big buildings like what they had in some of the other cities.

This city had been simply thrown together. He recalled the terrific battles there were in the Corporation when it was proposed to build the new City Hall. It was condemned as extravagant, now it was the principal attraction in the city. He thought it was a splendid thing that the people of Great Britain were giving them the new Parliament Building and the new Law Courts. He next dealt with the criticism of the Government by the Mayor of Coleraine in respect to the raid on the Road Fund, and pointed out that from 1921 till 1931 the motor-users in Co, Derry supplied £193,207, and they had got £452,399 from the Road Fund. The Government did not rob the Road Fund. They required a certain amount of money, and he believed they would agree that, when it came to a case of the people not getting their benefits, in order that the roads should be made better that the Government were perfectly right in taking the money for the benefit of the people. He thought the Mayor of Coleraine had no right to criticise the Northern Government for taking the money for the benefit of the people. He mentioned that in the Imperial House they obtained a concession that enabled them to get the flax in free. The Ulster members pointed out that while 10 per cent. might help the farmers it would do infinite damage to the millowners. The Ropeworks were consequently not going to be hampered.

A Member -- It is a pity you could not get a ship or two to build.

Captain Dixon -- We are working on that too. (Applause). Proceeding, he said he believed that the greatest asset to Ulster at the present moment was their representation in the Imperial House itself. Lord Carson saw that and it was one thing he fought for, as also did Lord Craigavon. They would accept nothing except direct representation in the House itself.

Concluding, he said that he thought the time was coming when there was going to be a general revival all over the world. He had a feeling after seeing the new Imperial House and everyone in it that the Ministers there were determined, for the moment at any rate, to put their heads down to get business for the people, and his one desire was that Ulster would get its share. (Applause).

On the motion of Mrs. Innis, J.P., seconded by Mrs. Forest, a resolution of confidence in Lord Craigavon and the Northern Government was adopted.

DISARMAMENT PLEA.

HOW GREAT POWERS STAND.

LEAGUE ORGANISER IN BELFAST.

A meeting in furtherance of disarmament was held in the I.L.P. Hall, York Street, on Thursday evening, when Miss M'Meekin, organiser of the League of Nations, delivered an address to the Central Women's Section of the Labour Party, Northern Ireland. Miss Elizabeth Reid occupied the chair.

In the course of her talk, Miss M'Meekin dealt chiefly with the points of view of Great Britain, France, and Germany on Naval, Military, Air, chemical, and bacteriological disarmament, and touched upon the events which had led up to the grave crisis in the Far East. Great Britain, she pointed out, was desirous of doing away with her submarines, and if she was to succeed she would have to pay the price, namely, a reduction in the number of her battleships which would be a very serious matter for her on account of the enormous sea front of her Empire and the food that was required for her home markets. France was very little concerned with naval disarmament because her frontiers, which had been invaded three times within the last 100 years required land defences.

HEART OF THE PROBLEM.

That brought one to the very heart of the disarmament problem which was security. While France was willing to disarm she had been insisting since 1921 that she must have adequate security.

There then arose the doctrine of mutual aid which was seen in the Locarno Pact of 1925. Even still she felt that only real security lay in an International force under the League of Nations. At the opening of the Disarmament Conference on the 2nd inst., France showed that her policy was unchanged in that respect for she proposed the establishment of an International Police Force. They would recall the fact that the Allies accepted the principle of disarmament when they imposed military conditions upon Germany in the peace treaties of 1919, and to-day Germany was insisting that the Allies must honour their pledges or allow her to re-arm. Hence, it could be seen that the problem was really one of the prevention of war or the rearming of the nations as obtained prior to 1914.

FAR EASTERN QUESTION.

Touching upon the Far Eastern question the speaker said that it was complicated by the fact that the Powers most concerned, mainly America and England, were bound by various pacts and treaties. That was particularly so with regard to England, which had been the ally of Japan since the beginning of the century. The situation was further complicated by the fact that in Japan although there was a responsible Government yet the military party, headed by the nobles, had the right through their Privy Council to petition the Emperor upon military matters, and could, without his consent, carry out a policy contrary to that which Parliament sanctioned.

A vote of thanks was passed to Miss M'Meekin for her address.

BOYS' LECTURE AT THE MAZE

IN AID OF CHURCH FUNDS.

A successful lantern lecture, "Around Ulster," was given on Friday evening in Maze Presbyterian Church schoolroom in aid of the church funds. The lecture was all the more noteworthy in that it was entirely carried out by younger members of the congregation -- Masters Leslie and Houghton Auld, and Wallace Dunn. Among the slides shown (included in which were many depicting the more important industries in the city, rope-making, handloom weaving and spinning, shipbuilding, etc.) were some magnificent views of Giant's Causeway, Antrim Coast Road, and places of historic and geological interest. Others showed the advantages afforded by many of the seaside resorts. A brief history of each important town, as well as its own particularly legendary history, considerably enhanced the lecture. The homes of many great men of Ulster extraction also excited comment among the audience. Not the least important of the slides were those showing the shipping routes to and from Ulster. The lecture was appreciated by a large and enthusiastic audience. Rev. Thomas Dunn, B.A. minister of Maze Church was present and gave some helpful remarks on many of the pictures.
