Notwithstanding the fact that it is highly probable that tie adoption of a system of rating for municipal purposes on the unimproved value of land will mean relieving proprietors of large fac tories of the greater portion of their rrte liabilities and will increase the amount that owners of cottage proper ties have to pay there are members of the council who appear to favor the change. As these members have a majority at the council table and, by the recent alteration of the Labor pledge f . i can compel that majority to vote as they are told, the position is in their hands, but before anything is done to bring the new system into vogue some enquiries and authentic information should he obtainedl.
