TAX SALE TO BE HEL0M18T City Commissioners Wunl Avoid Advertising in Newspapers To ijands. In .the city of Leihbridge iu arrears of taxes for 1914.1915 and 1916 or any portion of those years will be sold for.the taxes against them on or about June nth, 1918. This was decided at thia morning's meeting of tlie city council. It had been intended at first to start advertising for the saie immediately ao that It could be held in April, but it was delayed tor two reasons, first Jn order to give', the city assessor time to communicate with large tax payers In England to inform them that they can avoid the costs ot a tax sale by paying their taxes before the advertising starts, and second in order to see if tho legislature, passes some uniform act which will provide a cheaper means of advertising the lots In arrears than in the newspapers. The present charter requires that each lot be advertised in nine editions ot a newspaper published in the city. The council suggested that some arrangement might be made whereby mimeographed lists could be substituted.
