Dear Sir:  I have your     communication of thc 18th which was forwarded
to "me here  and  in  reply  would     say

of the Park and I would suggest that ing that some peop,e  wouW rm pay
»■ their taxes until forced to do bo, and
others should get consideration. The
finance committee was instructed to
bold a meeting and bring in a report
with reference to financing tbe city
for the balance of the year.
The public works committee brought
in their report     on    the matter of a
rebate of taxes asked for by the farmers institute at the last meeting of
the     council.     The promoters df the
farmers   market were given to understand last year     that     their     taxes
would     be   rebated.     The    aldermen
agreed unanimously    that the market
was a great benefit to the city     and
had     become a necessity but thought
tbat     the     owners     of the property
should     rot     insist     on such a high
11 rental as the taxes amount to, which
io $S6 per year. It was finally agreed
to rebate the   taxes for this year on
condition that the market looks after
itself in future.
A   request was received  from   J.  C.
municate directly with Mr. J. B.
Harkin, Superintendent Dominion
Parks, Interior Department, Ottawa.
I will be returning to Canada very
shortly and will stay a day ot two
at Ottawa, when I will discuss the
matter personally with tbe authorities there.
I remain, Yours faithfully,

Appeal heurd arguments yesterday
afternoon and this forenoon in the
appeals of the Forest Mills Lumber
Company and Canadian Bant of
Commerce vs. Adams River Lumber
Company, and the Forest Mills Limited vs. same defendants, in which
the plaintiff companies are appellants
and the defendant company is res-,
pondent. Judgment was given allowing the appeal. The appeal was from
a judgment of Mr. Justice Macdonald, dismissing the plaintifl companies' motion for a discontinuance
of thc action begun by them to enforce a contract of insurance on pre-«
mises and lumber burned on April 24,
1315. The appeal was argued by B.
P. Davis, K.C., for thc appellants,
and by S. S. Taylor, K.C., and u.
B. Housser for the respondent company.
Chief Justice Macdonald, in announcing the decision of the court,
said the appeal should be allowed
and leave to discontinue be granted
unbuilt any terms. Tbis was not in
any sense a reversal of thc judge be-,
low on the question of discretion, but
it wns not in the interests of justice
I that tbe plaintifl companies should
be prevented from having a trial of
their action entered in tho State of
Wi Islington.
