CHURCHES FOR A TAX Have They the Right to Demand Return of the Money "The City of Lethbridgti vs. Church Conscience" might he the title ot a controversy now going on between the governing bodies of sonu- of the leading churches in South Lethbridge and the city over the payment ot taxes on church property. The city needs the money. So do the churches, and in the end it will bo up to the church conscience to decide. Back in 191'3, when St. Andrew's church. North Lethbridge, was being built, the city rebated taxes on their property from the time construction operations were started, uUhough ac-Icording to the charter this should not have been done. The excuse is that the church had no other proper-tv in the city, and the taxes did not amount to much anyway. But now churches on the south side, owning valuable property and other good building sites into the bargain, have romembered the precedent set by the council of 1912, and so the Wesley and St. Patrick's congregation have asked that their 1913 taxes be rebated from the time they started to build. The Methodists started building on .\pril 1 and the rebate on the 4th Ave, property fTom that date would amount to about $3,75. The Roman Catholics started construe-on May 1 and the rebat* on their 4th .\ve. property from that date Would amount to $410. Now comes the governing bodv of St. .\ugustin's church. They claim that thev are overburdened with taxes, and if the other congregations are to be shown some leniency in the matter of taxes, they should also be considered. At present they are paving a total of $700 on property owned by them. Rev, Canon Muirell-Wright stated their case to the commissioners this morning, and asked that they be afforded some relief. He produced plans of a proposed new church which is to be erected, likely next year on their site of seven lots on 4th and Uth St., S,, and claimed that as this was proof that the property was not being held ior speculative purposes, the city should not collect taxes, or as an alternative, only a nominal assessment of sav $5000 be taxed. "We need the money," said the mayor. "So do we," countered tiie Canon. "We could, if we wished to do so, erect a cheap building on the property, one that would not cost more than the taxes, and then we wouldn't have to ;Jay any taxes at all If we used it for church purposes," This drew smiles from the commi.s-sioners. "That would be a matter for the church conscience to decide, wouldn't it �>" asked His Worship. City Solicitor Bail gave it as his opinion that the council had set a j bad precedent in granting a rebate to I St. Andrew's church, and that if the j requests of the various south side churches were met now it would lead to further trouble. The matter was finally reierretl once more to the mayor for more mature consideration. GENERAL BUCKNER-Last Con-lederato General has answered roll :all.
