AN attempt to create a feeling against Ihe tax on unearned increment lias been made by parlies opposed to it, arguing that the. proceeds sliould Lclunu to the cities in which the property is situated, and not to the province. In his ad- _ dress to the Board of Trade at Calgary, Mr. Big- branches, including aid in marketing, Hie board and newspaper writing he has been able tosupply the deiicicncy in funds necessary IQ keep the ma- chinery going. It should not be necessary here to mention what the board has undertaken during the past year. The president's report on another page, will do that. But if for no other reason than its campaign on behalf of mixed farming in all its, K.C.. Ihv Edmonton lawyer, made the rights uf the province to the lax very clear. His argu- ment was that taking Ihe limited sources of re- venue from which the province of Alberta could ciraw it was absolutely necessary to raise an add-, ed sum from taxation of some sort. The government had to provide a great deal of service not anticipated originally, such the supplying of telephones, subsidizing railways, building roads and bridges and performing other services. the increased value "on land, created without Ihe.imHvidual .effort and industry of the owners, came about principally the addition rbf people. 'In helping towards lliis the govern-. menf was instrumental, in addition to services it rendered to the commuiiiiy-in the way of 'afford- ing ulililies in. the shape of telephones, roads, bridges and Hie encouragement of railways. Through the means it furnished the unearned in- crement on the value of land was produced. The benefits so derived accrued to the cities at the ex- pense of the province, and the tax for the most [part went to help defray the expenditures which I helped lo enhance land values. If the cities were icntitled to the tax so were the rural municipali- ties. This is a logical statement. In defending the tax on unearned increment. should be kepi alive. And the Herald hopes that by the time this is in Ihe hands of its readers that decision will have been arrived at. Men do TQU want to buy or sell AGOODHORSE We. will buy in any quantity. We will sell any of our bunch o( the best Imported Clydesdale, Hackney or Standard Bred Stallions ever brought into Lethbridge, We will trade any of our horses. We have for sale other Horses both registered and grade, from OUR POINT OF VIEW The city hall seems to be undergoing u rapid change in complexion these days. With all the changes in sight, the C. P. R. must havr; a bunch of baseball schedule riinkers on the job al'.head office thinking out all Ihe dif- ferent ways a train may he run. it was 'levied al a time and in a manner likely lo ibe most convenient lo the taxpayer. It had the jjMi'. very tersely pill it when he said that jinerit of being inexpensive to collect through the icnsy machinery provided by the land registration tsys'tem in the province. Mr. liiggar's concluding remarks are in.tcrcs.f- stated thai despite the supposed deprcs ,sion that during the three rhonlhs in which Ihe Max had hcen in operation had been col peeled, indicating that'lhe; receipts for the yea: he 'As it represented orve-flfth o :4he increase, it rpeant- that land values were in al the rate of. about a year in !A Iberia.

If Ihe gentleman who writes "Shafts" for the Macleod Spectator had been wise, he would have ;nown that Joseph P. Tracy is as much opposed o "beer" being in'ASbTta, as he is tti not being there. Mr. Tracy .might consider an exchange. Dr. McClure's letter on w.lter meters in yes- ierday's issue was the real thing. It is what we nave all been looking'for. But the people not-forgelthat the cost of operat'-Mi of Ihe plant wiU have to be paid for by the people. They can- not expect lo pay less than now in tolo.
