LET ALL THE PEOPLE BEAR THEIR SHARE Ii.i.lifax people are asking that the Dji.iiuion government should make full rep.iration of the loss sustained in i'iio recent -ixploslon. That is just what Mayor Hardie wired the Prime Minister some weeks ago.--And It Is certainly a.better plan than Indiscrimi-note contributions by the voluntary svE.'oirt. Whatever aid Htilifas needs should come fiV)m the'whole people by taxation. Then the burden would he borno equally by the people. Under the voluntary system of financial aid, one city might contribute $100,000 whiiii another city of eq^ua) .sizemight not give anything. Tliere is nothing fair about that.
