This" was'-looking al (lie matter from a one-sided point of view, that of the properly holder. But here is a case wlu-ru the rt right for consideration. He pays his share in the upkeep of the utility, ami is entitled to imy reilucliqn which the circumstances may bring his way. Even if profits were used as suggested il is very doubtful whether any consequent lower- ing of the lax rale would mean as much substantially from a pocket standpoint-as the reduction in the light bill. Apart from .Ibis cheap light and wolcr form an clement of much importance in the attractions >i cily offers, and this should not be lost sight of. Also like cliHap postage, cheap electric, light i tends lo added revenue. The raising of the- discount is an all- round policy which effects landlord and tenant alike, and in Ihis is one essentially fair. In days of high cost of living any relief is welcome, and let il be shared by all alike. tsts aie Hie iiulinal IMH! irreconcileable enemies of Ibi' farmers, not only in Ibis province, but in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
