The-' contetencea :'fliqanpbe'Continaed',and'labor given Hatful' recognition -^by placing a TAX SALE IS THE CORRECT COURSE There can be no quarrel with the city commissioners for their decision to hold a tax sale in June. The cliy Is now carrying on its books tax arrears tor the years 1914, 1915. 1916 and 1917 with a tew from 1913. To say that the city has not given prop Drty owners every opportunity to meet their tax obligations would be to take an untenable condition. The fact of the matter is that bond brokers, bank-, ers and others in touch with the world's money markets Indicate that we have given too much latitude in Licthbrldge with the result that we have about 1600,000 In outstandings on our tax collection rolls and this is hurting our credit. The city cannot be run without money. Taxes are a necessity and must be paid. Letbbridge has passed through its era ot hard times and is now on the crest of a'Vave of prosperity. 'No better time could be found than the present to ask people to meet the tax obligations they have talldB to meet In the past. It Is bound to work PARSING i^'^y^ C. A.

The value, at risk |601,970 (five hundrad and' one thousand, nine hundred and siiven^, dollars)..

The Ifrlgade received sixty calls bo-tweien the hours ot 6 a.m. and 6 p.m and 42 between 6 p.m. and- 6 a.m. -The distance-travelled by machines to-and from tires was 259 miles, au average ot 3.5 miles per tire, they were engaged 73 hours and 15 minutes, an average of 43 minutes per fire, the time^being taken from- receipt ot notice until the return of the brigade to the statidns.
