"Herald Quality is a Herald of Business" To the Burgesses In a short edi- torial in the "Lethbridge Herald" under date of June 9th, it is inti- mated that the Commissioners should give the people more information about the money bylaws we propose pulling before the people in a few weeks. This editorial is somewhat of a surprise inasmuch-as. the "Herald" "has been publishing inside informa- tion about these bylaws ever since the commissioners started working on them early in this year. The com- especially the mayor, have, at every opportunity on the public platform taken up considerable time in discussing the city's, finances iiicluiiiiig the moneys asked for by 'llicse bylaws. However, we are anxious that the people should have ,thc fullest infor- mation at all times, and so. that there may be nqjack in this respect, we are "herewitli.jsettiiig forth fully, all .possible 'information about the money bylaws to-he put before the people at iiu early date, and about some that will be presented later af- ter the legal and engineering difficul- ties are all gotten over. In the first place, we will ask you to approve of a bylaw to cover the deficits in current account that have been gradually accumulating during the last six years as follows Deficit in 1008..................5 1901 1D10 403.35 ]911 1913 1913..................

The finan- cial difficulties are sufficient, almost impossible, without the additional difficulty which the refusal to pass this bylaw would entail.

OIL STOCKS AND OIL LEASES The Dowsley-Mulhern Land Co. Sherlock Building Phone 544 Money to loan at 8% on Clly Property. Total .The. 1913 deficit, was incurred hy overlooking some debenture charges on street railway other in- adequate provisions for street rail- way, and such'as adding 10 per cent, for discount and allowing the same, created a deficit in income of nearly in itself. To allow 10 per cent, it is necessary to add 11 per cent. This is a deficit that has'been made in all estimates prior to this year. This bylaw, even ii passed by the burgesses', will not become law until it is approved liy the Provincial Leg- islature, because current account de- ficils according to the City Charter cannot bo charged to capital without the consent' of. theProvincial Legis- lature. Wo have interviewed every provincial minister of the. crown ex- cepting the Prime who was in England at the time, and found them all sympathetic, and conse qiiently we are very sanguine that the Provincial parliament .will pass a bill validating this bylaw if the burgesses pass it. At the present lime, this suni is largely carried, -by city notes bearing 8 per'ccnt. If-the burgesses refuse to pass this, it will have to he collect- ed direct from the taxpayers, spread perhaps over several years during which period it will ..cost 8 per cent, making very dear money. Further the banks will not carry us tor IhisNsiim, and our creditors will not carry us for it. They have been. ?cry patient with us in carrying this Icnderscm Park Nursery, incurred prior, to 1013...
