Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOUR I'm tE^lIBAlDGE DAiLY jiERAlLD. ' DAILY AND WEEKLY ~ Proprietors and Publithera JMB'LETHBRIDQE HERALD PRINT. , " :iNQ COMPANY, LIMITED , '.183.6th Street South, Lethbridfe* �1- > W. A. Btlchanan ^ , if enacted and enforced, go a lontf way-towards clearing up the in-TolTcd financial situation in which the cities find thehiselves at the present time aa a roiult of la.xity in tax enforcement In the past. The propospj hmounts to the selling each year of the proSious year's  tax arrearages, with one year after stiio as the pe^-lod ot redemption. This plan will work hardship in some cases in tho first year ot Its application because of the' fact that tax arrears have been piling up for three, four and five years on city properties without any adequate attempt at enforcement. Much of the^ outside property on which these arrearages are shown will have to be, bought in by the elties for the arrears against them, and n�il} not bo available as a basis ot assessment, for tlie next year, thns reducing the' assessment, but :itt the same time the cities wilt be in a better position to cut their expenditures according to the tax income they are reasonably sure ot collecting, and thus they will not be building their financial, structure on .a false iDundation. It is time the cities were getting down tgua solid basis of finance, and "the provincial government is going to lielp them SCHOOL PRA Most^bdcrn ills Every Rmpcct -CreMmery To Be Re-built a� the same time the provincial officials are ready to help the cities weather the financial gale into which they have run due to past reckless financing during the ^oom day^. Premier Stewart is wlUlne to aid the cities In any feasible way to lighten the tax burden,- -while at the same ^tme paying their debts." This will help keep the province's credit good in the world's money markets. We shall need goQd credit In .the. future for we are bound to grow and need fi^rther the west, a? w.ell as on the 1 ImprovemenU. But tor the time be-fuloii ^^^^^ ^-liere Austro-German �ing the task is to curtail every con f oe"have been oressed back at ceS j trollable expenditure-^o that tain points. TOiGET IN TOUCH J WITH THE PE^LE y Charles Stewart is not going to be an arm-chair premier. He is going to �move*.about province- and meet the people. When they, want to tneet him and jdiscuss provincial matters Jje is wflUn'g to go to them rather than ask them to him. That doesn't mean, of course, that - Alberta's premier is going to be at the "beck and call" of people throughout the provirice all the time, but it does mean that �when'he can arrange it and when the ' subject is of great Importance, he -will go to, the people and meet and conter ' with them. It is characteristic of Charles Stewart that he shduld make such an announcement. He is a mari ot the peo-.ple and is anxious to mingle with Uie people and.get their view point on pro-f-vliicial affairs. There never was a Jxabre tippiwachable nVan In our public Jife. The more the pebple of Albe)rta isee and know Charles Stewart -the -more they will value him. He Is-a .man ot strong opinions and he will 1)e hosB of the job at Bdmonton but lat the same time, ho is always -willing � to get other'people's opinions and ac-icept t.hem if they are better than his own. 1 j jTARIFF CHANGES . � �;ON THE WAY Are tariff changes coming? Here in the west people hope so but don't ;^are cuddle any great hopes. Down ^ast, we find Toronto Saturday Night, anever-very kean on tariff reduction, minting at changes and rather patting the idea on the back. Here. Is what it saya: ( The,..Hon. George P.
