Mayor Hurdle's oiilnlon in Hint t�eth-ki'ldKo .should not have ;i hiKher mill rale tlimi ".4 mills, uml lie declares lie Ib working to that end. lint thin year. In spite of :i raving of about three? tnills, owing to the Increased Interest being secured on the sinking fund, expenses in oilier directions, notably for lehools, Increased greatly and (he lulll rate was higher than ever. "The only Volution for our tax pro-diem," said the mayor, "is to broaden the base of luxation. How to do (lint Is u question, but. I.ethbridge has cer-lain expenses to meet amiMnlly and Ke must look to Hie people, who can pay, to meet tliose." A number of suggestions are being considered, but nothing lias been arrived at. Some vt the suggestions are: Increase (he aaHtissiiient on build-inga. Thin aKHOBftment la now 33 per cont. If Increaacd to fit! per cont, the assessment, figures would ho increased to $1:1,000,000, or it increased to lull valuation, to $15,000,000. Rental Tax, Impose a rental tux. This suggestion lias be' n put forward by Commissioner Jleoch who slates that it, would yield ii return of $11,000 a year. I'.y this mothod (ho rental value of all property would be taxed, In addition to the regular taxation as at present. In case of a man owning his own house and living In it, the rontal tax would come off his regular tuxes. But in the case of a tenant, the tenant would be expected to pay the rental tax'while I he owner would pav tho full regular tax. Raise Water Rates. Increase the prices charged on the water and light utilities. Mayor Hurdle declared that tills would' be the first tiling a receiver would do, should the city hi- so unfortunate as to get Into a receiver's hands. Commissioner Freeman is not in accord with the suggestion. Income Tax. Then there is tile Income tax. Kd-monton expects to raise $100,000 by this method this year, and if they make a .success of the venture. I.eth-hridge is likely to adopt, it. The council expects to continue tlie discussion lor some time yet before adopting any scheme, and In the meantime the ratepayers are expected to have quite a lot to say about It.
