' In spite of the weather a good an-

than $307.10. The 20 chains of
work done on the Raitt road was

that his e. t'mate of the cost ot the
municipal rock whan, dock and

the work cost 51352.68. In regard
to water, he was in tavor of water

worth. He wished to be sure tbat
there was plenty 01 water there. He
