From (his  analysis of the balance-slieet it  would appear there is no hope of  reducing taxation consistent wilh  providing for even a small measure  of civic improvements each year,  and the proposal of the government  to 'saddle cities like Revelstoke  with a still heavier proportion of  the cost of education is a very  serious mailer.
