Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta LKTHBRlDOli DAILY HKRALD THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1918 .Mayor Hardie Now Predicting a Revolution in City Financing In eWlng his New Year's measaRO to the people of Lethbrldge Mayor Hardie this inorniiiK predicted a revolution within the year In tho ilnnnctal ; a.Sairs ot tho cities ot tho province of, � Alberta. It Is not the first time the ' mayor has predicted that sucli a revo-' lutton would havo to tiiKe place, but he declares that the time is now at j hand. A refunding process is tho  only salvation of the cities ot the pro-, vlnce, he daclares, and arrangements : �win have to be made shortly to ro ' to tho bondliolders who bought C'lii-gary, Edraonton, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat bonds to ask them to I spread their bills against tho cities ; over a period ot probably 60 years in-j stead ot 30. \ The mayor's New Year's message j to the people was simply that the | very strictest economy would have to : be maintained, and anything in the i nature ot luxuries In civic lite cut out, as it had been amply demonstrated that the people oouUi not pay the taxes (hey are being ciillcd upon to l)a,v. At the present time Lethbridge has about ?450,000 in ta.x arrears In addition to the arrears set up last year. As only about 60 per cent, of, tho 1917 taxes were paid in, there remain 40 per cent. In arrear.s 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 de-, clared that this condition cannot go i on. I Mayors to Meet. As Calgary, .Medicine Hat and Edmonton are In the same boat or worse. Jloyor Evans of Edmonton has called tho iuayors ot the three sister cities to meet him in Edmonton on January 9th when thoy will havo nn Inforninl meeting with members of the provincial cabinet to consider tho sltuntlon. lii his letter to Mayor Hardie callint; hini to the conl'erpncc. Ma.vor Evans .Slated; Edmonton's Position, . 'It win occur to you at once that measures which we may consider desirable or Inevitable might be much more easily achieved by a .general provincial act than if each city went at it piecemeal. This does not contemplate any nttempt under present tondttlons and on such short notice to draw up a Kancral city act, but, to give one Illustration, this city at some time within the not distant future will. In my opinion, be obliged to consult Us bond holders. No machinery for such consultation at present exists and could best be set up by a general provincial act, or It necessary a general Dominion Act." tAayor's Reply. Mayor Hardle^ln his reply said: "I am glad to learn too that there Is another mayor In tho province besides myself who realizes 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 it necessary on account of our prosperity, but 1 would rather see all the cities make an honest confession and get down, ut once, to considering a'sol'i-tion." Mayor Hnrdlc first predicted that western cities would have to consider a rebonding or refunding process during the municipal campaign In December 19ie, and reiterated it in the campaign In December 1917. 25 SUSPEGIS ON Gi.L FOR FIRES iSTERlSCUSS NorfoUi, Va., Jan. 2.-Twenty-five suspects were on the grill today in the investigation ot the mysterious series of fires which caused S2.000,00ft damage in Xortolk and lesser damage In Newport News and Portsmouth, nearby.
