iiilte well a sinking fund but the name Itself lo not very descriptive to the man In tho street It Is a little mys If a brief description may be It may bo put In this A man wants to build a house for himself he hns enough money to spare from hia mivluga or from his business for the whole out lay ho arranges with a mortgage company to lend him part of the and the agreement Is that ho will pay 1ho Interest owing and that he will also repay a certain amount of the money loaned each Those repayments are really similar to a sinking fund but as loans to cities aro usuallymade by numbers of lenders

did not pay their grocer or their nnd seem to hivvo nn compunction in letting It bo known that they owe money to their fellow cltlznna as n It causes us to think that our citizens and owners of lots do not all of them roalUo tho gravity of their obliga tions iu this and that they aro indifferent to certain aspects that may seriously affect their busi It might be well for those own ers who are in and who own other to look Into tbe question as to If these lands fall Into tho hands ofthe city and if they have ultimately to bo sold for lews than tho taxee such own ers may not bo liable to have de ficiency judgments registered against all their The mayor drop pod a word of warning to such pro perty holders In Ills 1916 In these words Those not paying their taxes must not fool thenidelvea into believing that If thoy do not earn to redeem tho property that it will automatically fall to the city and that will he the end of it so fur as they are The facts that the city not have to take over the property until distraint proceedings de monstrate that the owners have no available assets in all Can Many of the properties on the tax sale practically all in of those upon which the taxes amount to anything more than nominal look good easily for all that will stand against them up till and for at least two or three years more and if bcthbridge progresses as the development of tho country surround ing us promises to and Is doing now in there can be no doubt that properties will either be re deemed by the present registered or that the lots will ultimate ly bring profit to the city or to those who buy at the tax Citizens Should Wake In if care Is exercised In such new expenditures as arc and If the citys daytoday affairs are carefully and if thorough methods of procedure for tho collection of taxes arc we need not fear greatly for the especially it has been wise ly decreed by the Alberta Legisla ture that tax sales must from now onwards be held This will prevent our getting again into an un satisfactory position in this It is well that wo should under stand our present position thorough and that we should be so inform ed that we may support the mayor and commissioners in the wise ad ministration of the affairs of our Good work in such directions as this is being done ill Toronto and Winni by publicspirited citizens who have formed bureaus of municipal re These bodies investigate the affairs of their cities independently and place the results of their re searches before the It is one of the unfortunate phases of government by commission that the great body of citizens is more apt to become apathetic to their interests even under a council government and council and commission government and Is all the more to be desired that our citizens should follow more closely than they have hitherto done tho work of our MONUMENTS Headstones and Crosses of every description made to GET OUR PRICES AND SEE OUR WORK BEFORE YOU Lethbridge Monumental and Cut Stone Works
