At the present time Lethbridge has about $450,000 In tax arrears in addition to the arrears set up last year. As only about 60 per cent, of the 191? taxes were paid in, there remain 40 per cent, iu arrears to be added to the $450,000 in arrears prior to 1917, so that the total now is round the $650,000*mark.

Mayor Hardie^tu his reply said: "Ij am glad to learn too that there is another mayor in the province besides myself who a-oalizes that it is impossible for any city in Alberta to meet its present obligations, and that some form of.refunding is necessary. Lethbridge can hold out to {he last if necessary on account of our prosperity, but I would rather see all the cities make an honest confession and get down, at once, to considering a'solution." Mayor Hardie first predicted that western cities would have to consider a rebonding or refunding process during the municipal campaign in December 1916, and reiterated it in the campaign in December 1917. f I Yl \ ^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^k t ^ T . f u 1 _ w ^ '�- RILL FOR FIRES MYSTERIOUS CLASS Godfrey.
