Every last nickel will be required to rueet the City's i'u 11 obligations, but there are a few items that may stand over for n while to give- our Citizens a chance to turn round and find "Ways and means to meet their cbligations to the City. Only a little has been this year up to date: another is an absolute necessity, whiih will still leave outstanding for 1915 nearly which, plus the 1014 unpaid taxes, win leave outstanding.about To return to the ?1QO.OOO that we must have to keep. running _ ,en, owing taxes, in the city who could pay, but are not doing so tiiey -can the City iginatlon. this year. I am creditably informed that there are stiff ic1 taxes, in the city who could pay, but are not doing so make better use of the money. This puts both themselves in n false position, and cannot be excused by any stretch, of.-tl If the taxes are not paid to the extent of at least the rtnat is asked for, a Tax Sale will have to be nut on in the the.year, not later than next March, so that those who can but will not1 pay saving a few months and adding penalties and costs that, in our estimation, will exceed any advantage they can get from the money they fall to pay the City. Tho Commissioners hare been under the painful necessity of having to glvo instructions to the Assessor to get ready for a Tax Sale at the earliest possible moment in 1916, which will cover'all taxes not paid in 1914 and the 1915. taxes of all who have not paid their 1914 taxes. Our Charter will'not allow us to collect where only 1915 taxes are not paid. Wo made partial payments possible this year from which we hoped great results which did not materialize. If every one -had paid a-fair portion of their tliere would not have been a necessity for a Tax Sale. If the average taxpayer had paid 50% of his taxes that sum. combined with those who paid their taxes' in full, would have out the City in Uie position that wo would not have been under the painful necessity of thinking of a Tax Sale. J There'is still opportunity to pay partial payments', and every one.

They were a (inc looking lot'oi men from Coal Creek and Ferine und are the last io have been enrolled. They were given a farewell Smoker last, night at the Northern hotel, Col. .McKay, Lieutenant Martin and other ofliccrs and men of the regi- ment were present and Mr. A. I. Fisher was among the speakers. Mr. R. Wilson dill not forget to havi the boys supplied with pipes and" the Kebckahs were at the train to src that each lioy had n "housewife" as is Ihsir invariable custom. The lad- i ies of the Patriotic society and the Red Cross society provided lunches. The bugle hand were on hand 'to head the procession from the recruiting station to the station, with Colonel McKay, Captain Stalker and Lieu- tenant Martin in charge of the es- cort. Notwithstanding the frequency ;of these departures, large crowds of people always throng the station urged to do their honest hest while those who can pay but are holding up their money are warned of the evil consequences to themselves and the community -at large. Don't forget that about 5% of our property is under sonic for rery small which will secure to the City the payment of the taxes by the mortgagees. There -will be no difficulty about collecting for the City's rcqui pern cuts, hut to pay? put our City in this strait when you have the money For the same reasons "si above, uncollected taxes, in our estimation are aifcsolutely safe for several years, and can pay the Interest and all other charges as long as un-paid. Why then, when you have the money, will you force a Tax Sale? Don't forget that the City must have 1915 outstanding taxes, either by voluntary payment or a Tax Sale. Yours truly, W. D. L.
