Third Slreet Improvementa
At thc court of revision under
the Third street improvement bylaw last evening, the chief spokesman for the ratepayers was William
Morden. Messrs Alexander, Sargent and Summers took pari.
lhe points upon which information was sought were:
1. Tie city proposes to pay a
total of fiy, on the whole cost,
Imt the several street intersections
measure (100 feet, which at the estimated cost per foot would
amount to (liboo. The city ihould
l>eai ils share on the basis of lhe
average cott.
a. Many property ownen hue
air ady spent considerable money
in clearing and grading streets adjacent to tins property. There
sliould be made due allowance for
such work.
3* The total estimate is ftu,*
00, Imt should the actual cost be
lore or* less than this, tht rale
voiihl vary accordingly.
4. The lime of repayment (five
years) is too short, and makes
lhe payments too heavy. Many
ratepayers hail signed tlie petition
under the belief that payments
would extend over twenty years.
As to the first point raised, the
city engineer is to investigate and
teport. Thc seiond and thiid
were answered in Ihe affirmatm.
As to thc fourth point, it wai explained that five years is the life of
a wooden sidewalk, and payments
could not be extended beyond tint
time, tint for the permanent road-
work an extension could be made.

The amount of building that is
proceeding in the city at the pres

points to even larger results dnr
iug the coming months, lu the
vicinity 0' fifth street and St Da

residences under construction ;
011 Keilh road east another cluster
of Iiiiii-'--. may lie seen in various
stages ul completion ; plans ate
being completed for the erection
of a numbH of new cottages on
Seventeenth street East, in block
615; all over the territory within
the city bunts may lie seen scores
of homes in course ol erection
singly and 111 groups.
A striking feature ot those build
mg operations lies in the lact thai
all but a very small percentage
of these houses represents construction lor owners who are
building tor personal occupancy,
and for this reason the supply ol
houses for rent is not materially
increasing in fact the demand it
still in exi ess ot the supply.
I be 11 ilural advantages of Nortli

residence spot; the improvement
in the ferry service, which piihlu
sentiment is demanding more am!
more strongly, and which must lie
loithcoming- if not in one way,
then iu another—will place this
city within easier reach of lhe

say that there are hundreds ol
(amiliet waiting to cross lhe Inlet

This, together with the steady in

In order that this movement

Perhaps it is imi generally realized what a demand (lieu* is lm

Through tins nun existence ol

the growth ol tlie city's population
is greatly lelanled. It is high time
lor the property owners to awaken
