Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PACK FOUR THE LETHBRIDGE DAILf HERALD MONDAY, JUNE 1814 Sbe letbbrfoge Derato alberta DAILY AND WEEKLY SUBSCRIPTION RATES delivered, per year..... 14.00 Dilly. by mall, per year...... 3.00 Weekly, by mall, per year.... i.w TELEPHONES Business Office Editorlal Office W. A. Buchanan John Managing Director Business Manager THE MONEY BYLAWS the fate, of the bylaws to be submitted on Thursday may be. It will be interesting to note the results. There can be no doubt as to what the fate of the deficiency bylaws should be. There is one pro- viding for the raising ot funds to Day for certain municipal works already carried out but rot {aid lor. This should be endorsed unqualifiedly. The bylaw represents a just debt. What- ever else we do this year, let us pay cur debts. If this is done, the pres- ent council will have reason to feel proud. There has ;been a tenedncy in the past to spend money we haven't Sad. The boom'spirit disregarded consequences, and now tbat it has faded, we are face to face with the net result "We have the improve- ments and they must be paid for. Ratepayers should put the number of this bylaw, down in their memor- ies and vote "for." Another monument to the alder- manic-form of government is tie de- ficiency- on current account covering a period ot six years. a mayor is elected for a term of one year, under the old style of government, he naturally wishes to keep his tax rate as low as possible. Hence the estimates are pared to the limit, and during the" pasfsix years they have not been sufficient to meet the expenditure, and a deficit was created. If the estimates had teen adequate, the tax rates during this period would have been increased in proportion to the amount of the de- ficit. Each succeeding council of not only ignored the deficit by the sast council, in their effort to show a low tax rate, hut has created a shortage in addi- tion, with which the following council has iDeen saddled: But the following council also ignored this fact, and on doing the same thing over again, and every "tile council had a deficit all its' own. When the present commission took office then, they had to face this sit- uation. One of the first things they encountered was this deficit of some- thing like which they could not feaorc.-- --The iiiajojv_ no, .matter he might be, instead of bein elected to office for one year, assumes the responsibility of chief magistrate for four years. The council is burd- ened with this deBcit and must wipe it out. This is one of the reasons iwhy the tax rate this year is so high and another reason why at will be lower next year. In addition to fac ing this debt, and wiping it out, th( present council has made ample 'pro- vision for current expenditure, and instead of arriving at the end of the year with a deficit, there will be a handsome surplus, 50 that next year see them on their way to" better things. There is no need for any de- fince of commission form of govern- ment in LethbricfEe so far, but it is well that these matters be pointed out, so that allowances may be made. .As far as the other bylaws are con- cerned, the Herald la not prepared to counsel. The market byiaw is the result of an expression of the people, that they would have a municipal market. "We have ample evidence that a market is wanted and needed in this city. The privately owned market in the Eckstorm building proves that It seems only logical that once the citizens had evinced a desire for a market by their ballots, that they would ibe prepared to stand the expense. The other bylaws are for new work, srrith very few exceptions. The water tank ou the hill will ever, be a monu- ment to the duplicity of the citizens, if the money required to finish it is not voted. "Whatever is done, the ratepayers should unanimously endorse bylaws 23G and 239. The provincial govern- ment has the final say as to whether the deficiency on current account can be paid through the issue of deben- tures. The burgesses should there- fore vote strongly in favor of it, so that the government will see that there is a desire on the part of the ratepayers to pay their deibts, when the question will be much easier for them to decide, and sanction be al- most inevitable. Edmonton still has of 1913 taxes unpaid. Miss McDonald bas resigned from the school staff. Cranbrook will celebrate the 12th of July. T. J. Summers, Kimberley, has elected- president of the Gran- brook district Liberal association. A building for the government tele- phone system is to be erected' at Camrose. Rev. M. T.

It is one of the ballots to be used in the voting next Thursday, when the bur- ;esscs will be asked to endorse five money bylaws. The above ballot is one of three of the same kind, there being in all five ballots, Each one of the three represents one sep- arate bylaw, but each gives in de- tail, under various propositions just exactly the portions to -be used ,for each purpose. Thq idea is suggested by Clarke and Swaliey, the city's money-bylaw attorneys in Toronto. Any one of the propositions may be turned down, and every one of thorn represents a separate and distinct ballot and must he marked either for or against. If a voter wishes to en- dorse ail the propositions in bloc, it is necessary that he mark each pro- position separately, else the entire ballot will uc spoiled. The above ballot represents a total of It is a monument to past councils, for nearly every.item on the ballot represents work that has already been done, but never paid foe. Some were paid for out of the funds.that were never intended to he iisM for this purpose, and which must he replaced. Other items represent notes flue and payable. The aggre- gate 34 propositions represent a debt of which must he paid. This bylaw, because the amounts raised in many cases were not suffici- ent to pay for the work au- thorized and' done by past councils. This ballot, then represents bylaw number 239. Bylaw 234, which provides for the expenditure of under Mr. Roix'i's department, is also prepared under different propositions which set forth the amount for each purpose, and which must he marked in tho same manner as -the deficiency bylaw. There arc or.Iy five propositions, and the matter is some- what easier. Proposition A is for electrical power house extensions, costing, including interest and sink- ing fund charges, Proposition B is for ulcouio light 'and power line extensions, and amounts to Proposition C is for street railway extensions amounting t'o Pro- position D is for. the purpose of building an elevator in the Industrial buiWing, amounting to Pro- position E is for building lavatories in the Industrial building, amounting to Any one of the propositions may lie turned down, hut if all are to he endorsed, every proposition must be marked, or the entire ballot will be spoiled. The third bylaw prepared under the proposition style, is that which pro- vides lor certain new work under Mr. Grace's department, representing a totul of There are tine Pro- positions, which must either be turn- cd down or passed, in order to make tho ballot valid. These are the three that are de- i tailed The oth- cr two hyla'.vs arc more or less well understood. One .is .the market bylaw. When the recent plebiscite vote was taken, 'the electors decided that they would have a market, own- ed and operated by the city as a mu- nicipril utility. The site they selected did not have any buildings suitable, so the-'commissioners have provided for the erection of-tltcse buildings in this bylaw. If_ the bylaw is. passed, the buildings will he erected and tho market opened, on the 13th street and 1st avenue site. The ballot for this bylaw is ".a straight lor or against proposition, and there are no detailed ballots to.mark. The lust o! f.TC, ;r, proSutly the most important. It is bylaw 230, and is for the sum of to make up the.shortages in the current account for the past six years, past councils' debts which must be paid. If tins bylaw is.passed, it must first be sanctioned by. the-Provincial Leg- islature before-tilo debentures can bo issued, and ii; cannot be put up to .the government until it has neon passed by the burgesses.

Mr. Sif- ton says "While I have, as you know, no hostility lo .tho present government ol Ontario, i rcganl the issue as to the abolition of the bar of such para- mount, importance as to demand al- most bxclusivc consideration till it is disposed of.
