In their Zeal to Print Things the Im
periel Push Sometimes Forgets
Since the campaign for county seat
came up the Imperial push through
the Slandard has endeavored In many
ways to convey the Idea that Imperial
Is owned by the people who live there.
Such articles would lead one to be
lieve that they have forgotten when
sometime lasjjall a representative of
the Paulln push went before the coun
ell of Imperial and with big briny tears
In his voice begged and beseeched
that body, to exempt th # c unsoldjots In
Imperial from the city tax, explaining
that there were so many of them thac
It would cripple the bank of England
to pay the tax levied by the council.
Of course whatever the Imperial Land
company should ask for must be grant
ed, so there was no hesitancy on the
part of the council in granting this
slight favor. . This is a matter of
record and as it is a well known fact
that there have been but a small num
ber of lots sold in the town since last
fall or for the past year, there can be
no doubt about a mistake having been
made when they asserted that the
town was owned by the people. The
people, of course, own a small part of
the town and are working and paying
taxes which are enormously high in
order to try and enhance the value of
the unsold lots. The explanat'on was
made before the council that th^se
lots were not worth the amount efi the
tax, but it is now. thought by a great
many that if they can land th/ county
seat that Paulin will be able to sell
these Jots to ; some one. andj then, of
course they can be taxed. V
