Tba Herald recognizes as well as thu may- or that the city needs a greater cash revenue thin II Is at present enjoying It Letubrldge Is to escape tbe forluno which has overtaken Crince Albert. We recognize that tbe city has been financing too inuch on ar- rears ol (siea and that ibis nor SOimJ. Nevertheless would like to warn the council to move lowly In Intro- ducing new departures In taxation.

As (or the latter, It Is generally re- cognized as a wrong principle In mu- nicipally owned utilities. Why should (hose, In ihe city and help (ho community, pay Iho taxes "which Ehould be paid by tho absentee land- holders- and landlords? That Is llj'e argument agalrist the proposal. But In Lolhurldffe's financial position It Js noi itrictly a- matter principle, es- pecially as we have a street railway system which hss been drawing from direct tales for a number of years to pay the deficit. There can be no very great objection at this time If tho council decides thai the utilities should be lumped together and made to show a profit, that is, that the elec- tric light anj waterworks should be made to show a profit which will bal- ance tbe street railway deficit- Rais- ing of utility rates to make any util- ity show, a prcfit Is a debatable prac- tice, hut just now we- are living In ra- ther unusual times.
