commissioners whenit felt Quit they were pursuing an unwise in this matter of taxation we realise the difficul ties and admil that the commissioners are honestly seeking a solution that will save the taxpayers from a worse fate later With them we agree that it is unwise to delay Many citizens are inquisitive about the proposed taxation and its necee The Herald wants to enlighten them and the commissioners are will ing to answer all Therefore we have a proposal to Let eJUiena who are seriously interested la civic affairs and who desire mat tan concerning civic finances and tax ation

you state That it e not tho Heraldi Inten tion to carry on a cumpaign against tho nty Councils new taxation pro Tho recognizes as viel 35 the mayor thit tite city needs a greater cash revenue than it Is at present enjoying If Lethbridge Is to i escape the misfortune which has over taken Prince We recognise that tho city tins been financing too much arrears ot taxes and that this is not The above is a candid statement Avowing that you have a full knowl edge of the present state of affairs and that something has to be hut this being a fact we cannot un si erst and why you then proceed to throw cold water on all but one of the proposals arW even the com mendation for that one is only half Do you Editor that your commissioners have a very difficult and distasteful task before You I admit that something unusual has to j be doneto avoid Prince Alberts dlf You then warn us to go slow in introducing new departures in Have we not been going slow Nothing is decided yet and aa you say cannot decide on anything until the Legislature in the would it not show a more favorable disposition toward the city administration and would it not benefit the community more if you were to offer some suggestions aa to how the tax question should be solv instead of inserting such an ar ticle without any comment on your as that iii your issue of the 8th under the heading Caught on the It is not difficult to see how the superficial observer might come to such conclusions as that article quot But this does not excuse you f or j not making lany what you do about the citys1 You know as well as commission ers that unlese something is done avoid it the improved property own ers as well as in all the other Will eventuallyhave to pay for the man who refuses to pay his providing hls property not pay the taxes I points to one conclusion and that is to reduce the taxes on thie unprofitable property to the point where it will pay the taxes im By this means some of the I burden will be taken off the of the improved property ownersT they will sooner or later have to because once this unimproved property reverts to tho city it does not pay any and result of ibis years tax eale goes to show that it will nearly all revert the city if put up for With regard to the proposed income what you say as to there being great antipathy to this form of taxa tion is quite it is conceded to be one of the fairest tax es there Why should some people earning good salaries and not paying any oth er enjoy the of his home town or city at the expense of others The object of including everyone in the income tax is not for the pur pose of obtaining any considerable tax from the ordinary wage earner or moderate salaried but it is for the purpose of simplifying the en forcement of the If everyone has to pay no matter how there is notJJie difficulty of finding out who should pay and who should You might have stated in regard to this tax had youwished to do so that the tax imposed would bo on a sliding according to a mansability to and that It Is the intention to make the tax so light on the man earning a small that it would not be a and that unless his income tax exceeds his regular tax he would not pay any income As regards the increase of waterlknd Electric it is simply another way spreading uniformly a load that must be borne by our citizens The tax question is a sore particularly In this country whore such extravagant expenditures have been But the best was never too good for the people of the when most of our debts were We now have to pay this bill and there is no use hollering about It should also be borne in mind that in nearly all cases of large expendi tures the people sanctioned the ex whether wisely or not is not tliB The fact is that your council has no say in 80 of the annual expenditure this being what is known as fixed charges and is 20 per cent only of the annual expenditure is with in tho control of the It should also be borne In mind that in the matter of taxation the council have a very difficult and disagreeable subject to but one that is ab solutely essential to deal in or der that tho city become financially and In handling this vexed ques tion
