anxious to hoid their land and pay In view of these tacts It would be Well for the commissioners to ex plaintheir It la true that the land at present within the city lim its has been brought into the

other the and is in euch a posi tionas to ownership that it is useless for farming purposes unless the city itself undertakes to farm Whether the city is Justified in holding valu able land out of cultivation is one of the important phases of the The Calgary daily papers are busy discussing that citys relations to its vacant land The Al bertan thinks the city should either farm the tend or let it bo taken out of the city Heres the way it sizes up the situation There te no wisdom in the council fighting to keep these lands inside the city in the hope that K can force the land owners to pay

farme within the city limits barring Mayor that this land should be treated as urban there is no guarantee that the commission that is handling this question for the province will take a similar In THE CANA DIAN will be surprised if Judge Carpenter and his associates will allow farm land to be taxed as city property even if it lies within the Especially would it be surprising were the property
