Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 27, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOUR THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1915 She tetbbribge iseralo Blberta DAILY ANJ WcEKLY. Subscription Rittr. delivered, pe.- Dttilj, by mall, per year.... Wwkly, by mail, per TELEPHONES: (4.00 3.00 U-thlrMge would not have a very on initiative and will be in a much bette position, in the spring to show wha 1 Hiiesla reaHy can do. British casualties in 16 months irar-ainount to over half a million British A1ood is being spilled freely in this war but there is the satisfac- I tion of knowing that the Teuton arm hive suffered more heavily in pro- portion. How much longer they'can F last without showing manifest signs j of weakening is a question, but perts profess to believe it cannot be much longer and that spring will see i them going back. So the really im portgr.t 'stage of the war should be sear at hand -with progress for the allies more marked. WORTHY OF THE TRIBUTE ;We are not surprised that the sold' ier's wives remembered Mrs. Frank Christmas. A worthy wo- man is Airs. Colpman. She has given of her time since the war commenced to investigate! the circumstances o( every soldier's dependents in this city and ha3 directed the course necessary to be followed to secure the Patriotic allowance. She -has kept in close touch, with every 'dependent wires and children of the soldiers have learned to in many cases worship this generous hearted, deeply interested worker at ths head :of this important branch ct the I. O. This work takes'almost'all :ot Colpman's, time.- Had she not Toluntarilyw contributed her services the Patriotic Fund would have haft to engage an 'official to direct investiga- tions into the, cases requiring Patri- otic Fund attention. SHOULD THE CITY HOLD A TAX SALE Unpaid tales are to a city: what out- fitandlng accounts are .to a merchant t source oi perpetual worry; espec- ially in when some hwltmcy on tile part of the authori- tiw in using tie "big stick" for col- tectlon purposes t Lethbridge, like every other city in .Western Canada, has its unpaid taxes problem, and the coiDLiiSBioners are _in ;a -quandary whether to ,use big stick methods or not. The big'stick in the city's hands is the tax sale. Should they use it7 If nearly every ratepayer was pay- ing his taxes -there would be no hesi- tation in the matter: It would be an indication of prosperity, and tiiose were carejess in protecting their property would be, forced to pay or their, property. But times have not. beenr BO prosperous in the past two or three years as is indicated by the fact that only about 50 per cent, of the .ratepayers are meeeing the tflx charges on their, property, and Lethbridge is not alone in this posi- tion. So the question of a tax sale looms up large, with half the tax- payers directly interested, and all the .burgesses vitally concerned. 'Just what is ;ihe position of the city? A recent statement made by the city assessor shows that on De- cember 31, 1914, unpaid Uxes on un- improved property amounted to while unpaid taxes on improved pro- petty amounted to This year cn'Decerabef 1st unpaid'taxes on.un- Imprpvea property amounted to ind on improved property, So that the sUuntlon in the two years it nitterinlly changed. Add to tills the fact that 40% of ftoJSU fates are still unpaid'and it will .that the city has a year's taiei ouSifindlng. H other nes'.ern cities wen.iiot in a tlmltar iwnltlon ivoidablo deficit of 259i of the amount of the taxes annually, which would soon lead to bankruptcy unless people are forced in souie manner ic pay up. That's where the tas sale.comes in. If people refuse to pay till-forced tc do' So, the city has no other recourse. Saskatoon, Mooso Jaw and Prince Al- bert have .used the big stick with success. They have had tax sales and people had to pay up or lose their property. Should follow this drastic course? The Herald has the assurance of the commissioners that of back taxes paid in now, with a con- tinued effort on the part of the rate- payers to wipe out their tax bills even at the rate of a few dollars each monUl, would avoid the need of a tax-sale.
