TAXPAYER8 FAVOR THE MEAS
URE, MAYOR DECLARES
The prlnclp.il objection Is that the an
nual budget will be Increased about
H.Mo.OUU. It Is said that the taxpayers
object. On the contrary, I find they
generally favor this bill as a measure
of Justice and good policy. Moreover.
the will of the whole community must
be consulted In mat;ers of government,
and not merely that of the corporations
and pertOM who pay the taxes. The
Interests and wishes of the rent payers
are no less Important than those of
the taxpayers, as every wise land owner
knows We should do better to alwavs
say rentpayers and taxpayers, Instead
of suylng taxpayers only.
"And when we consider this addition
of M0O,0M to the next tax budget, It
la not so great after all. It la an In
crease of four mills In the rale. That
means that one who now pays $loo in
taxes will have to pay 40 cents more,
namely. JI00.40, by reaaon of this In
crease, that one who now pays $-.ro will
have to pvv ggU that one who now puys
ri.ooO will have to pay 11.004. and so on.
I am perfectly content as a taxpayer
to pay this small Increase, and I be
lieve the vast majority of taxpayers
feel the same way. They are not so
