Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 31, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MAY 1918 riffi LETfteniDGK DAILY IIRHALO PAfiE Mayor Hardie Replies to President Marnoch The following letter from Mayor Hunllo to Irealtlnnt UnB boon hnndort to Tho lloralrt for pub Mayors May Irosldonf of tho Hourtl of My Dcinr Knowing flfl I do that your BO called interviews In Uiu LelhbrldKo Dally Herald aro carefully compiled com I am at a loss to gather what your aim and object by tho publication of tho comriinuluailnns that aro coming from your pen If they aro educative you aro rather Jato In your You should have lielpod tho mayors cffortH lu this respect In his preface to tho 1915 and auditors when ho endeavored to educate the people that it WIIH Imperatively necessary to do their very best towards paying over duo There la nothing in your luat two communications is not covered In my preface to the reports The facts In my If you had advocated tho drastic meas ure In 1915 or even late as which advocate In your prtaent your efforts would not have been very kindly received justly so for the simple reason that 1 Ifad given before the or the largo majority of them at any who were in arrears imply did not have tho money and not get It to pay the Indeed It was difficult for many of them to get enough money to buy These facts wore perhaps bet ter known to tho mayor than to most but tho information was pretty widespread and even you were yot unaware of If a man owed you ten dollars and you know ho simply did not have tho money to and you also knew tie was an honest man would pay when ho would it bo wisdom on your part to wait until ho could pay with interest Of course you would wait there would be really nothing left for you to do but and finally get your money with in That Is just exactly the posi tion of our delinquents and tho posi tion of the Your explanation of the sinking is quite Interesting and amus The amortization plan of the Loan Companies is fearfully and wonderfully contrived and if you are to understand their you have accomplished more than tho mayor has been able to Ho once carried one of THEM THINGS for a but got rid of It as quickly as possible Immediate ly he began to partially cpnxprehcnd what it God help the city that have to provide a sinking fund on anything like parallel You will find a simple and scienti fic definition of tho sinking fund respect the straight term bond and tfte equal annual In stalment in my preface to the 1915 auditors I am quite sureIf these do not convey to the ordinary mind what a sinking fund your exposition will either convey a very wrong Impression or will bo a blank There is absolutely no comparison between the Loan Companies method of amortization and the method inthis city excepting that The theoretical prin ciples of finance underlie all clary Within the con fines of The theory of finance there are hundreds of trust procedures that are very The amortization of the citys debt and that of ttfo loan companies are Hero Is my definition of the sinking fund referred to above Sinking Fund The purchaser of an annuity ex pects to receive Interest on his invest ment at an agreed rate and would not bo content unless at the end of tho term his capital were In tho rent of the annuity consists of two portions interest on the purchase and a re payment of capital called the Sink ing and while the Interest may be treated as an Income by the annuitant or aotnu one for must scrupulously set aside annually tho Sinking and reserve with all Hccumumtimis of Interest upon it at tho agreed rate In order to replace IIH capital tho oml of the period when his annuity will Equal Annual Instalment In tnlH case he may Imagine each portion of the capital In the success ive payments of the annuity to bn at ones applied towards liquidating thn debt whlth will thus gradually dimin ish until it finally As the debt is being paid off a less and less proportion of the annuity will be re quired for Interest und a greater and greater proportion will be available to refund the In the two ways of viewing the transaction are the I am aorry I have taken up so much space In this item but It In very Im portant that no misunderstanding arise on this Our citizens were bettor Ignorant badly With reference to your remark that tho people are liable to be more leth argic regarding their interest un der commission government than un der councllmanic I Jiavo lived In Lothbrldgo since before it had a civic charter of any kind and during all these years I have never known the people to have the same live Interest In nlty aa has been taken qvcr tho period I have been The reason being that the present form of government Is closer to the people than the other and because they realized that the other form had got them so tre mendously in the hole before they knew the rctual state of affairs und mado burden of taxes RO heavy that they are suspicious of every move that would Increase If the old form of government had been as close to the people as the we would have no street rail way that has made a deficit for thn pnst five years of approximately and will surely create an other deficit of in tho next five After that even it may That IB not This same street railway has thrown a burden on tho electric department j and causes higher lighting rates j which would not have been if we had not gono in for a street This item represents an annual charge of from or from to over a period of five years and will be the same for five years to and after that perhaps a total of another to making a charge that may be In all conscientiousness debited to the street railway at the und ol on tho other the money that was put into the afreet railway had been put Into natural gas in stead of giving the franchise the profits would have been at least per year or over the period that the street railway will cost the taxpayers practically in de the natural gas would have paid the city In A simple difference to the city of Item I must not go It is self evident that your comparison Is About the Bureaux of Information by the citizens of Toronto and Win I am not going to discuss but I am going to state one fact about The Bureau of Information MAY take credit for leading up to the appointment of Bradshaw at a salary of per to look after that citys If it can readily take that credit it did Toron
