First, busi- ness conditions m no city in Canada during the past year have been such'that a general ten per cent, increase on all realty assessments is war- ranted, especially when it is :i fact that lite 1913 assessment was within tea per cent, of Ihe-mnxi- inum which could be imposed within reason. And we do not believe any other city in Canada, under similar conditions, will add lep per cenl. in 19H. Second: Ihere-is a large element of danger in the proposal. II is well known that Ihe.assess- ment; as it stands at present, allows llie.; city-a borrowing power which would swamp us if it were exercised, as it inighl be.under pur charter, Add'ten per cent, to and jhe bor- rowing power would border on Ihe ficlilioiis. may be ai-gtied thai the borrowing .power lS fine country of the Lcllibridfic .district; its la.rge i has'nolhing to do with the question, thai grain-raising the results; lllc qrc wisc and stand, for uo further heavy whicb-have been gained up lo the.present ti'me, i borrowings even if .there remain' mil-; an'fl'lhc possibilities of a much larger future .ex- ]jon On our borrowing powers.

Mr. Foster further slaled lliat He was guided by Ihe advice of llie Grain Commission in .the selection of elevator sites. It may be accepted that the opinion be holds of the Lclhbndge.dis- lion surplus on our iiorrowitig powers our answer is simply this: if'our charter gives j us the power lo borrow up lo a certain percentage j of (inr assessment, and the exercise of lhal power would create a burden too heavy lo j is something wrong somewhere.

OUH POINT OF VIEW it be meters or not? THE ASSESSMENT-PROBLEM. THERE seems lo be a division of opinion over the proposal of Ihe commissioners lo in- crease Ihe assessment by ten per cenl. this year over the figures established by the 1913 assess- ment.
