There are two distinct bodies of opinion as to whether the assessment of buildings slioi^ld be Increased, and 1 am convinced that It would be impossible to secure a committee of 1 iti7.ens who could agree on a fixed basis." The mayor stated that he had considered having the Sumner system of!, assessment and taxation introduced here, and brinning In the Sumners to ni,i!;e an. independent assessment. This would cost ?500 0 but the mayor declared that, when it was made.' he was satisfied it would be by no means unanimously accepted by the ratepayers. " � Whole Question Reviewed The whole question of tsxation is diie to receive a great deal of consideration during the coming year, he intimated. The mayor is in favor of, considering ail the utilities under one! head and making them pay their way.' He thinks the utility rates shcnild bo; raised so that they will not only pay j their own wa.v but pay -some of the  taxes besides, but declares it would be 1 almost impossible to have tho people ; accept such a plan, and instanced the \ opposition to the proposal to increase j the electric light rates and the water; meter rates. He told the Herald the! press and the public generally was not supporting him in these suggestions which he had put forth as the! moat feasible way to get the city back in really good financial condition. "There are too many petty jealousies, and it the people can be got to accept 50 per cent of the suggestions put fortli for tholr benefit, I conaWer myself lucky."
