MURRAY, Prop. GUELPH PUBLIC UTILITIES (Toronto News) Guelph prides itself on its low tax- j rate of fourteen and a half mills on the fur the lowest of any community of nine uiousand inhabit-' ants'or over in Ontario. Its ability} to .manage on such ,a low rate it at- tributes to the fact that it leads all Canadian cities in the ownership and the operation of its public utilities. Each utility is conducted by a sep- arate commission answerable to the City Council. It is now proposed to follow the example Of G-alveston and other -American towns, and turn the management over to a single small commission of highly-paid experts. What New Zealand is to the Empire; j in Social legislation Guelph is to thoh rest of Canada in civic j tion.
