Into effect tho full force of tho city charter to collect ciirrmit tiixos has been decided upon l>y the city commisnioners, and theso tuxm: will be collected by suit, distraint, or collection nf renin, except under only oiio condition. That condition Is this: -If u tax pay-er who bus not yet paid bin 1018 taxes, will pay these Iuxcb in full together with ten per cent, of bin arrears;, Iio will bo immune from the tax sale of next year.

Tho amendment Is now bnliiK drawn up. The city needit this year's taxes Immediately, If credit la to bo preserved nt the banks. :Only about r>7 per cent, has been collected, and money'is needed to provide for the schools, and different essential city departments. Tin! commissioners at a meeting yesterday afternoon, authorized tho soli-citor to take such drastic action as w.-w deemed necessary to collect taxes which are not immediately paid, or guaranteed under the arrangement mentioned above. The following is the resolution passed by the city council: The Resolution. Whereas, the current faxes for IMS after the then Irreducible minimum was fully threshed out were levied at Sm�,l'-n.24 of which sum up to the 21st of October, only $2o2.7 per cent, htid been fully paid, and Whereas, the city's credit largely i!cpendn on the council's assurance that, at the end of the year an overdraft will not be allowed to pllo up, and * Whereas, up to the present lime the council has been able to moke pood by financing partly on Mirplii�c.i on current account and from other t-'iiiroe*. all of which are now prartl- �hl� coodHkui PAGE SEVEN. WEALTHY CITIZEN. AND to meet this demand, and Whereas, tho sum Of $262,02a,S8 only represents about f>7 per cent, of the current taxoR for 101S, it. is evident that if liberal payments are not. made before the end of llio year there will bo an overdraft, at the HaiiU of Montreal of abouL $125,000.00, which would nlmoat surely prevent the. city from getting n line of credit for city schools, board of health, children's shelter, police, fire, die., to beRln i;i|t� with, and Whereas Koefion tj of Title XXIX of the city charter provides that "the rales of taxes levlod br Imposed for any year shall be considered to have beep imposed and to be due on and from the first day of January of the then current year ending with 'Insist day of December thereof, imle.'s otherwise expressly provided for by bylaw under which the Biiine are directed to be'levied, and Whereas, the Alberta government officials havi� assured us that an amendment to our charter, exempting all property from tax sale which pays the full levy of the current year and ten per centum of the tax arrears, will be passed at the next session of (he legislature if presented, and Whereas, we learn that some ut our taxpayers Irvinf? In I.ethbrhlpe mid paying taxes In othgr cities alio, have paid taxes in another city under threat of ill.itrnlnt., but l�nvi> Ibelr i.eth-brldRo taxes unpaid because of leniency In tax enforcement, ami Whereas, the collection of bacfc taxes prior to IMS, cannot be used for mis current eupenses.
