PROPOSALS It is not the Herald's intention to cany on a campaign Tagalnst the city council's new taxation proposals. The Herald recognizes as well as the mayor that the city needs a greater cash revenue than It la at present enjoying if Lethbrldge is to escape the misfortune which has overtaken Prince Albert. We recognize that the city has been fibanclng too much on arrears of taxes and that this /is not sound. � Nevertheless we would like to warn the council to more slowly in introducing new departures in taxation. There are three general proposals under consideration,, one to Impose an income tax, anotlter to increase the assessment on improvements, thus lightening the burden on the land, and the other is to increase the utility rates to makj a profit which will go to a general decrease In direct taxes. As for the latter. It Is generally recognized as a wrong principle in municipally owned utilities. Why should thosei ;iirho.,jilT9 jn the city and-h^lp hie community, pay the taxes -^vhlch should be paid by the absentee landholders-and landlords? That Is the argument against the proposal. But in Lelhbrldge's financial position It Js ndt'Sttrictly a matter o{ principle, especially as we have a street railway system which has been drawing from direct taxes for a number of years to pay the deficit. There can be no very great objection at this time It the council decides that tJie utilities should be lumped together and made to show a profit, that is, that the ele^ trie light and waterworks should Ve made to show a profit which will balance the Etreet railway deficit. Raising of utility rates to make any utility show, a profit is a debatable prao* tice, hut just now we are living in rather uAusnal times. , The proposal to increase the assessment^ on bulldiags to lighten the tax burden on land is likely to result in a great deal of criticism. Prop-ably the city too hastily adopted the single tax principle,/.^ut the council N BOW IW Six For Council-'Flu Epidemic Is Almost Stamped Out fFrom Our�.Own Corre�poi�l6Bl) BOW ISLAND, Dec. 7.-The election on Monday promises to be one of the most keenly contested ever held in Bow Island.
