WILD LANDS TAX HELPING SETTLEMENT The most pleasing thing about the enormous laad movemant jus t now tarttng In Southern Alberta is that Bine out of every ten new settlers coming In has capital and equipment ready to go tha land and produce. There is very little speculation. No largo tracts of land are being bought Bp and held idle for the rise. As a result Southern Alberta will �ee the biggest gain in production tht next two or three years of any period of her history. The new settlors are finding land, too. The speculators who bought a power? granted will bo broa4 enough 10 make it worth while. Canadians are now paying the in-on we tax for The ilm �i :t: p in their Irves and they do not seem to ho tak-in? kindly 10 it. and any suggestion thai the cities he empowered to levy a neennd income lax. in addition to that imposed by tho Dominion, ii causing much squirming. The Calgary AH'en,a- discussing j the city income t;s\ pUr.i, say?: "The announrenvn?. of r>nc of the members of The K'lveriiment tha;, the province would not impose a din.-ei tax, but that the citio.* might have, thRt privilege, is a very important one. Heretofore no city ha* had that power, and accordingly no city lias made any effort to tax in that direction. At present there are several rities which i are applying ior pprmi*diou, and. Judged from the announcement of tho rnirtiater. they -,vil! their desjr-. "Tho value of an income tax laviad by municipalise:- is doubtful. Now that the Dominion government has made, a ptart. such a tax will he less difficult to operate. Th^ people have been educated,, or arc becoming educated, and the Dominion has prepared i the* groundwork. The main objection j to the tax is that it is always unpopular, and it tend* to discourage progress, that it is easy to evade, and that it is difficult to collect. Whether ox not. a city is morally justified in taxing a man on income* derived from sources outside of the city, is a. question for argument. The enforcement of the act will he more difficult than that facing the wider areas. The best tha: can be said of the tax is that it. ia bettor than the tax on improvements, the business tax, which it greatly resembles, or the poll tax or any other tax open to the j except the laud tax. Mayor Hardie is a strong advocatu of an income tax for Lethbridge to supplement general revenues, especially for Patriotic Fund purposes. The Herald ia rather inclined to agree i with him. The Patriotic Fund should ; be raised by all paying according to ! their ability. The government plan of making the land owners bear the  whole burden of this special tax is will have to hear the of this special tax is will have to bear, the of the burden in any non-land owner should COALDALE Great Advance Made By Coal-dale Methodist Church in Past Few Years Thoe. liktfiartis, a well-known Edmonton old timer, 13 dead. i Alfred Bedford.
