In towns of up-der 10,000 population, high sol^tiol teachers and bank managers will act as enrollment officers. In large'ceu' tres high, school .teachers, Y.M.C^.At: secretaries, together with officers-;ot tho Boy Sconts and' similar orgajjlaa tlons. will enroll the recruits. Arrangements have been made by tho department of education in several provinces, so that boys who enlist for this work will not-IosQ their school standing. 13very boy who gives three months ot satisfactory service on the /arm will be np:e8Slon abroad, among all classes of our cltlsohs, that the commlsstotiera, eiit>op(al1y the mayor, want get more money to run the city In 1918 than was reciulr-ed In 1917. This la not true. Tliay will not require any more money tiv. 1918 than they required In J917 and this too, np\wllhistahdlng: thWt" there has been a large Increase ot wages that will have to be proi-ided for In lOlS. , The mayor lias been studying deeply, the subject's of assessments and rates for tho 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 ard not equitably distributed and that a very large percentage.of pity communities pay no taxes whatever. To overcome this. Winnipeg is going ^In tor an i Income tax and appointed a commission tn go into .the matter very thoroughly. This commission has recommended an income tax bill for the city ot Winnipeg, a copy of which is before the Lethbridge commissioners. Poll Tax It has always beeii recognized that the non-tn.x payors should do something .towards the expenses of running the city, and the poll tax has been permissable by our charter ever since the city was Incorporated, but it has been both unpopular and difficult to enforce; so much so that It has never been thoroughly applied. There are more non tax payers In this city than Is generally conceived, which makes the burden fall too heavily on the tax payers. The ethical and theoretical argu-j ment that all who spend money in the: city are tax payers, cannot hold. There : is no leisure class or rich people in | the city of Lethbridge. We-are all i , , , _ . ^. . ^. working people and taxes should be . 7""""'^ "� ^'>*^*i' assessed in "the ratio of the ability i ''^'e'" Bowelr pkiafr�aui�r, .i(ntit, ba�od;upon the mo&at;Of work he 18 cattiblo of diitnR. : 'itn* department ot Agrlratlnces'wt\t provide Qtachln-erjrt (or' ptftolng the boya on the farms, �o :that farmers who ^ cari nae one or more hoya ihouldnoilfy their provln : District [-London n...

It is a fact that tenants in this city pay no taxes. They, dp not pay enough rent to return tlie owner a very reasonable percentage on hia money, after repair, depreciation., redemption, insurance and taxes are'deducted. While the income tax may be a good equalizer it is (lifflcult to get away from the fear that at some time it might fall in its purpose. If for instance our revenue had been largely derived from income in the years of depression^ the ^Ity would have had but little revenue 'from that source because the incomes were mostly not capable of'standing any rating. \ We hear the statement that the land hoWer was; a speculator and ifhe got .caugl^t 1^ th^'jalumiiUet him bear the ^^urden 'he Contacted.

How many men have acjtually lost" money in. the reii estht^ business in Lethbridge? Those who gained by real estate advance are the original owners snch as the-'A.'-R.'and Co. and some who never lived In town pr have long since left It. But apart from that what is gained by imposing a condition of taxation that owners' cannot meet it no other person will take on the burden, except the city. ; The city does not want to acquire lands, or touildlngs for taxes and the duty ot 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 wou'd have to be increased on the prot)erty in the hands of those that the taxes can be squeezed oat of. ,' Poaltlon la O. K. .The position-of the-city so tar as meeting its debts is A 1 but the position of the not Al because of the fact'that in ^most of these caii'es their taxes are more than their fair share.-. WlthVef^rerice to the fncreaso ot electric lights, etc., with a .view ,to more equally distributing the burden of taxation, let me remind you and our citizens that prior to 1913 there was a surplus troth the public.utilities approximately $40,000 that.was applied to the reduction of the ta;t rate. That surplus was, eat?n up In 1913 and the years following by the Increased Interest, sinking fund, .etc. Had this surplus been kept up b'y increas. Ing tho cost of light,: etc., to the consumer the more. equitable dlstribu-tloh of taxes then prevailing, would hold now and.the mayor would not be asking tor. anytijlng along that line, v^t may be ,a'8k,Bd why this was not done, and the.reply ia, that tlio mayor lias always cbhleitded fbr it but conditions were against hliii, For ex-a'mplo in 1914 Mr. lield tucurred'a de-'flcit ot $10,000 by tnlsconcolvlug tho posBtbilltlea ot his departmoht in the hard times. � This resulted in terms being made -for.. .his department through the finance dud' public Tvorlcs departments, that resulted in a raise ot rates to the tax payers, but no't the non taxpayer. This candltlO|i has.never been .reversed with tha net TesuU that the" tax payer cphtlnuod to' boar the extra burden then ImposM, Whe ther-the rates charged to the other de-partments were too ilowi or jiot, with reference to actuarcoBt;'ot production, does not alter the fact^tbat that means Of partially ftquaU2ioR;^ho: taxes was eliminated, and the $40^000 plus $10,-000 was forced on the li^topayera and removed from tho hoh-tajcvpayers. In Other words tho non-tax pdyers have been relieved from time to time while the taxpayers have be"an further .burdened by this amount.  ' rt is quite apparent tr.0% the talK on the Htrebt 'th9t'^t'he>tas-payerB;ai*^e under a inlsapprehenBlon-'aB to' the mayor's object, and 'tbatvthey 'are not witling to tako hla Judgmsnt on tho subject, which has beon'matured by several yearsV stndyj � r It S^na raatoett-cd, gun W^intdttikiby a laaamltli, keya nUk^t, loeka unpaired, bloyetoi, typewriter!; pheatrsrapiii, anr tight mnchinery repalrfd, lawn mowera flbofpenedr D.AiRINa 914 Third AVttpiie South Office hours..... ,,ll: RoBldenea 619.
