Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 6, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta GUELPH MAY BECOME CITY WITHOUT TAXES City Owns Street Railway Light and Heat Plant And Railway Leased to Q. P. R. Death is still sure, but taxes are not nearly so certain in Guelph as they used to" he. This is an age of wireless telegrams, horseless carri- ages and smokeless powder. Why r.ot a taxless city? Guelph citizsns are asking. The city owns its own, .street lail- way, the light and heat plant, the waterworks, and a small railroad call ed the Guelph Junction, which has been leased to the Canadian Pacific, and forms an important link in the dragnet of lines the latter has stretch mg across Ontario. A-U these invest- ments are paying large surpluses year by year, and taxes are falling regu- larly. The rate has already reached 14i- mills, the lowest of any 'city in Canada. Further Reduction When the tax rate was set last year it was believed that low water mark had been reached. This year it is announced, however, that if the civic administrators ''grind exceeding ly small" a further reduction- of sev- eral mills will be possible. This will make the rate a little more than half what it is in. other Canadian cities of the same size. But this gradual cutting down ,of the tax rate is only a beginning. It is -boldly proclaimed that if Guelph keeps straight ahead on her munici- pal ownership programme the time will come .when there will he no tax rate at all.

It vearly turns over a neat profit, welfup in the thousands, despite the handicap of expensive power. Street Railroad Profits The street railway hands Over to the civic coffers a neat sum every year. The redemption of the trolley system has been the' most distinct victory for public ownership that Guelph has yet scored. by an ambitious citizen, it proved a costly experiment. Guelph, with its popu- lation of only did not seem large enough to support street cars. The road owner, who had expected the road to be a bonanza, discovered it was a white elephant. A fortune was sunk in it. I Then the city took over the road and put it under the control of a radial board. Operating expenses were put on a basis of economic effi- ciency and the receipts were care- fully nursed by the establishment of pleasure parks outside the city and the opening of a rink in winter time. Year thy year the road was pulled out of the 'hole, until finally a surplus was declared. This surplus grows larger every year, and the board now talks of building new lines in the city. Before many months the build- of a radial line to Puslinch lake, resort nine miles from the "ity, will be York Herald U. S. AND MEXICO AGREE.
