Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21. 1018 DEATH VERDICT OF THE In Frank Fatality-Blair more News-A Children's Play (From Our Own Correspundrntt THairmore. Feb. 2"--The University Of Alberta educational films were shown at the Union Church on Thursday evening. They were of the uanrA j high quality. Rev. AV. T. Young nf j Frank had charge of the films. Uefore the pictures were shown a play culled "Miss Canada" was put. on by no children from Frank under I he leadership of Miss Hinds deaconess of the Frank j church. The play was entertaining and much appreciated by the audience which was a" goodly size In spite of the cold evening. Rev. Fulton returned from Edmonton after a sojourn of over two weeks and occupied the pulpit of the Union Church on Sunday. Since his return he has taken up his abode in the Putnam building. Accidental Death The coroner's jury at Frank on Fri- day returned a verdict of accidental i death in the case of the fatal accident J In the Frank mine when Jos. Boranak' lost his life. ' j The Junior and the intermediate ' hockey teams of Blairmore once again went to Frank to battle with their agile contestants in that burg. They both went down to defeat. Try again hoys. Mr. Allan Hamilton, surveyor for (lie West Canadian Colleges at Creenhill mine* went to Calgary on Saturday evening and returned on Tuesday morning. Mr. AleX Moreneey, hardware merchant, left Snuday for Kdmomon to. attend the Grand Kneampnient of the l.O.O.F. in ihat city, being the local KncampmenFs representative. Purchases Block J. K. GUlist barrister, purchased the Nicifore block on Victoria street and Eighth avenue for the sum of $u.m>0. Is not this Lenten season? Well, almost everywhere one hears of the boy at the front needing smokes, in the trendies. What about all the smokers cutting out the use of the weed for at least a week and giving the savings for the benefit of the boys overseas. Now is an opportunity for them tp show the sacrificing spirit. Who will start the ball rolling? Surely the smokers will appreciate the suggestion.

Kditor Lethoridge Herald. Lethbrklge. Alta. There is an -impression abroad, among all classes of our citizens, that ; the commissioners, especially the mayor, want to get more money to run the eitv in IMS than was requir-; ed in i!U7. This is not true. They! will not require any more money Sir ISMS than they required in 1M7 and; this too. notwithstanding that there has been a targe increase of wages ; that will have to be provided for In i IMS. : The mayor has been studying deeply, the subjects of assessments and , rates for the past several years, and has been urging certain reforms at every opportunity to his fellow mayors . all over Alberta, but until very recently got no sympathetic response, but now it is recognised all over Western Canada from Winnipeg to the Pacific , Coast, that taxes are not equitably [ distributed and that a very large | percentage , of city communities pay no taxes whatever. To overcome this, Winnipeg is going in for an income tax and appointed a commission to go into the matter very thoroughly. This commission has recommended an income tax bill for the city of Winnipeg, ja copy of which is before the Leth-* bridge commissioners. Poll Tax It has always been recognized that the non-tax payers should do some-| rhing towards the expenses of run-city, and the poll tax has Enlist Aid of High School Boy* Who Will Retain Standing paid regular wages, based upon the amount of work he 1b capable of doing.

PROFESSIONAL CARDS GUNSMITHS A mooting Is to be held at Taber to form an auto club. i Oun\v(t. Feb. -1.-The organization of the "Soldiers of the Soil'* movement, inaugurated by tho Canada food board. is now practically complete and work will be commenced at an early date to enlist _r>,000 boy volunteers to assist in food production on farms this year. Aetna-! enrollment will begin on Mar. IT, and the following week will be "Soldiers of the Soil enrollment week" throughout Canada. In towns of nailer tO.iHto population, high school teachers and bank managers will act as enrollment officers. In large centres high, school teachers. Y.M.C.A. secretaries, together with officers of tiie Boy Scouts ami similar organisations, will enroll the recruits. Arrangements have been made by the department of education in several provinces, so that boys who enliat for this work will not-lose their school standing.

We hear the statement that the land holder was a speculator and if he got caught in the slump let him bear the J burden he contracted. Let me ask : if there is a man'in the city today who got rich on land speculation? Are there a dozen men in town today who !are .better off than if they had followed other lines of business? How h �many men have actually lost money; ! in the real estate business in Leth-! bridge? These who gained by real estate advance are the original own* i ers such as the A. R. and I. Co. and j some who never lived in town or have ! long since left it. But apart from that what is gained 11 by imposing a condition of taxation!) 'that owners- cannot meet if no other' person will take on the burden, except � the city. The city does not want to acquire lands, or buildings tor taxe3 and the duty of the council is to avoid that as far as possible because if the taxable property fell into the city's hands In large quantities the taxes would have to be increased on the property in the hands of those that the taxes can be squeezed out of. Position is O. K. The position of the city so far as meeting its debts is A 1 but the position of the delinquents is not Al because of the fact that in most of these cases their taxes are more than their fair share. With" reference to the increase of electric lights, etc.. with a view to more equally distributing the burden of taxation. Jet me remind you and lour citizens that prior to 1913 there jwas a surplus from the public utilities approximately $40,000 that was applied to the reduction of the lax rate. That surplus was, eaten up in 1913 and the years following by the increased interest, sinking fund, -etc. Had this surplus been kept up by increasing ttui cost of light, etc., to tho consumer the more equitable distribution of taxes then prevailing, would hold now and the mayor would not he asking for anything along that line.

This resulted in terms being made for his department through the finance and public works departments, that resulted in a raise of rates to the tux payers, but uot tho non taxpayer. This condition has never been reversed with the net result that the tax payer continued to bear -the extra burden th^n imposed. Whether the rates charged to the other de-1 pavtments were too low or not, with I reference to actua! cost of production, j does not niter the fact that that meant; j of partially ViualizlnB the taxes was' eliminated, and the 40.000 plus SK>,-000 was forced ou the ratepayers and removed from the non-tax payers.
