LAXiTY IN TAX COLLECTION A DANGEROUS PRINCIPLE. A Calgiry r.i;ei?ayer. writing to the Calg.iry Herald regarding the ta.': situRtiou^-ln. that olty, speaks very strongly about tho lasUy of the cirj- aiithoriries-in-tho.inattor of the collection of tax arrears, and suggests a.i.-lx strike to brlnfe'the authorities to. llHie Lethbridge has .averted .=uch throats by deciding to hold a tax eule this,year, to clean..up two of the foiir years' outstanding taxes. But the sooner the Legislature of thii I'rcvincc puts the cities where they SMi.-il clean up tax arrears within a iN-a.s.onable lime, the better for till canccrned. The principle we hate btfou operating on is that the rate-p-i.ver who do?s pay should carry the burden of his neighbor who does not p:'..v or who refuses to pay. It is a rotten principal and is the cause of the t:;iancia! difficulties of Alberta cities to day. a hang which, every man will hold up his hand for that as being .good business. If you can do that oiit ot comparatively worthless coal near your own doors and save to these provinces ?7,000,000 to $8,000,000, instead of having that money go out of your country, if you do that by developing the lignites in your own country,- glva the people a better coal, do away with those long hauls which are so uneconomical, and if you can get the stuff you �vant with a shorter haul, surely it is good busl- that estimate, which was from July 15 to October 15. Senator Poirier expressed the belief that the completion ot the Hudson Bay railway would result in tho development ot a great oil field, which there were indications existed to the south and the west ot Hudson Bay. Senator Schaffner. declared that the opening ot the route would prove a boon to much of western Canada by bringing it nearer to the markets of Europe. Sena'tor Watson said it had been noss to do It.
