*t��ttfc�� ;lsked the Greets com-
"iu'��s not true that the muskeg
settled a great deal in time and that if
three feet could not be changed to one
foot.
Engineer Clements asked if Mr.
Westenhaver could not have his men
take the stuff across to the deep hole
near Second street. The engineer did
not think that the muskeg should be
allowed to come up higher than three
feet from grade.
Aid. Mclntyre said that while property owners did not own the streets
it must be remembered that all the
property owners along the street should
have the right to dump immediately
in front of their own lots. If one man was
allowed to dump all along the street
and in front of other properties it would
work a hardship on the other owners.
Mr. Westenhaver said that he learned
in Victoria that muskeg would settle
at least one thirdv He did not want to
do anything that would interfere with
the progress of the city. On the contrary
he was doing all he could to build it up.
Aid. Pattullo moved that Mr. Westenhaver take the matter up with the
city engineer and come to some arrangement to be subject to the approval of
the streets, works and property committee. Aid. Mclntyre seconded the
motion.���Carried.
Speaking to the motion Aid. Hilditch said the engineer should find a
place where the muskeg could be dumped
by the builders. He claimed it would be
cheaper for those people to have the
stuff out now than later on when the
city starts to build the roads.
The engineer was instructed to take
the matter up with Mr. Westenhaver at
once.
Changing the Coronation Oath
London, June 18.���Premier Asquith
announced today in the House of
Commons that he was formulating a
bill modifying the coronation oath,
eliminating some of the phrases objectionable to Catholica. The Protestant forces of the kingdom are preparing to oppose the plan.
INVESTED $70,000
TWO  DEALS  CLOSED   TODAY-
TOTAL OF $32,425.
Messrs Newman & Burt Bought 110
Feet at the Corner of First Avenue
and First Street.���Two Lots in
Block 1 9 Section 1 at $10,000
More English capital has been invested in Prince Rupert this week.
Chas. Halsey of M. M. Stephens & Co
has completed a deal or a series of deals
amounting to $42,425. The purchasers
are R. L. Newman and Fred J. Burt, of
England. Thej are the same capitalists
who purchased Helgeron's lots on
Second avenue last week at $18,500,
thus their total investment in Prince
Rupert to date is nearly $70,000. The
lots included in todays deals are:-
Lots 9, 10, 11 and 12, block 13,
section 1 or at the corner of First avenue
and First street. This gives them 110
feet on First avenue some of the best
wholesale property in the city. It fronts
on the harbor, with the G. T. P. yards
right at their door. The corner lots 11
12 were owned by G. R. Naden &Co.
and lots 9 and 10 were owned by the
Atlantic Realty Co of which W. S.
Benson is the representative here. The
corner lots sold for 20,000 and the other
two for $12,425.
The same gentleman also purchased
through Mr. Halsey two lots in block
19, section 1 for $10,000. This does not
represent all the property Messrs. Newman & Burt will hold. They are considering further investments which will
be made public in due course.
Vancouver, June 21.���The hearing
of a suit for three million brought
against C. M. Hays, president of the
Grand Trunk Pacific, was begun this
morning. The suit is brought by More-
ton Frewen, a wealthy Englishman,
who claims that sum as damages for a
breach of agreement which gave him
his choice of one thousand Prince Rupert
town lots. Mr. Frewen has been here
for several days. Mr. Hays arrived from
Winnipeg yesterday morning. P. E.
Davis is handling the case for the plaintiff and Mr. McPhillips appears for the
defence.
David H. Hays, local townsite agent
for the company, has left town to meet
his brother in Vancouver, and nothing
is known here of the issues at stake.
It is believed the alleged transaction
took place either in London or in Montreal.
William McKenzie is Specially Added to the Directorate.���All "the
Company's Trading Posts and
Stores to be Eatonized by Experts.
London, June 20. ��� The report of
tHe Hudson's Bay Company says
that the directors arranged last
autumn for Richard Burbidge, managing director of the Harrods Stores, to
examine into and report on the condition
of the retail stores of the company.
His report is receiving the consideration
of the governing committee.
The retiring directors, Earl of Lichfield and Sir Walter Vaughan-Morgan,
do not seek re-election. It is recommended that Vivian Smith, of Morgan Grenfell
and company, and Mr. Kindersley, of
Lazard and company, be elected to fill
their places. Further it is considered
in the interest of the company that
R. Burbidge and Wm. MacKenzie be
also elected directors. Thomas Skinner
is to be deputy governor.   .
Reading between the lines of this
statement it is evident the reform party
has won and that beneath the surface
there has been a strenuous struggle.
The election of Skinner as deputy
governor means that the administration
will be quietly but resolutely modernized. This imperative demand comes
from the controlling stockholders. The
retail department is especially to be remodelled, to be eatonized and made to
produce adequate returns or to be
closed altogether.
Burbidge is the most progressive of the
London board of directors, but changes
in the Canadian personnel will be made
as the needs of the new policy demand.
Vivian and Kindersley especially represent them in control of the majority
stock. MacKenzie's elections is capable
of several explanations.

murder of the woman, has been released by the Italian police.
Trouble    About   Big    Fight

Johnson fight has to be pulled off in

Londoi/, June 21.��� Lord Kitchener

New  York,  June 20.���Police raided
the Tribune building Sunday night and

FIRST   SERVICES   HELD   IN   Mc-
INTYRE HALL ON SUNDAY
Rev. Eastbrook Preached two Splendid  Sermons to  Large  Congre'ifa- ���
tions.���Music   was   Lead  by Mrs.
Robinson   and  the  Choir.
The Baptist church has been established in Prince Rupert. Sunday Rev.
Estbrook, of Sumerland, preached the
first sermon and marked the establishment of the Congregation here. The
Baptists are strong in Prince Rupert and
the prospects for a large and influential
congregation are very bright. Already
the members are looking for a site upon
which to erect a church. There are
several in view but no decision will be
arrived at until a congregational meeting
is called and everyone given an opportunity to have a say in the matter. The
services yesterday were very bright,
Mrs. Robinson presided at the piano
and was assisted in the musical part by
a small choir. For the time being
Mclntyre's hall on Third avenue is
being used as a church. Next Sunday
Rev. J. W. Litch of Vancouver will take
charge of the services.
The Amur this morning unloaded
four large reels of telephone cable for
the local service.

The Council of a City Municipality
may pass by-laws for the following
purposes:-
(1.) For providing the means of ascertaining and determining what land
or real property will be immediately benefited by any proposed improvement,
the expense of which is proposed to be
assessed upon the land or the real property benefited thereby, and of ascertaining and determining the proportions in which the assessment is to be
made on the various portions of land or
real property so benefited:
(a.) It shall be deemed to have been
and to be a sufficient compliance
with the provisions of the preceding
paragraph of this sub-section if the
Council shall have passed or shall pass
a general by-law or general by-laws
providing the means of ascertaining
and determining what land or real
property will be immediately benefited by any proposed improvement,
the expense of which is proposed to be
assessed upon the land or the real
property immediately benefited thereby, and of ascertaining and determining the proportions in which the
assessment is to be made on the various
portions of land or real property
so benefited, and it shall not be deemed
to have been or to be necessary to
pass a special by-law for the purposes
above mentioned in each particular
instance:
(2.) For assessing the land or the real
property so benefited, and for levying
and collecting, by means of a special
rate or tax upon such land or real property, the cost, as estimated by the City
Engineer, or such proportion of the said
cost as the Council may decide upon, of
constructing, laying, making, enlarging,
extending, or prolonging any drain, or
branch, main or common sewer, or of
connecting any land or real property
with such sewer, or of opening, widening, extending, prolonging, constructing
or reconstructing, or altering, or paving,
macadamising or planking, grading, or
levelling any street, lane, alley, public
way or place, or any sidewalk, or any
bridge forming part of a highway within
the municipality, or of curbing, sodding,
or planting any street, alley, square,
or other public place, or reconstructing,
as well as constructing, any work hereby
provided for:
according to the frontage of the land or
real property in or on, or fronting or
abutting upon, the street or place wherein
or whereon such improvement or work
is proposed to be done or made:
Provided always, that where a frontage rate appears inequitable or difficult
of determination, the cost, or a portion
thereof, of any work of local   improvement may  be assessed upon   the land
and real property benefited   for   the
period of years which the life of the
work of local improvement is expected
to   last,   according   to   the  following
methods,���
(a.) According to the relative assessed
value, such assessed value to be taken
from the assessment roll for the year;
or
(b.) According to the number of lots
or portions of lots of land or of real
property without reference to the comparative value of the different values
thereof; or
(c.) According  to  the  proportionate
amount of benefit; or
(d.) According to the relative or comparative area of the lots or portions
of lots benefited; or
(e.) Partly by the said frontage rate
and partly by each of these methods
or partly by any two or more of all
such methods.   1902, c. 52, s.   54.
(8.) If in  any case the first  assessment for any local improvement proves
insufficient, the Council shall make a
second in the same manner, and so on
until sufficient moneys shall have been
realized to pay for such improvements
or works, and if too large a stlm shall
at any time be raised, the excess shall be
refunded ratably to those by whom it
was paid:
(9.) In ascertaining and determinining
cost of constructing or of laying,
making, enlarging, extending or prolonging any drain or main or common
sewer, the Council may estimate the
cost of the construction of branch sewers
to the line of the street, and include the
estimated cost of such branch sewers
in making the assessment, and in levying and collecting the special rate or tax
for such branch sewers, or for the main
or common sewers, as a local improvement.
(10.) The Council may pass by-laws
to assess, levy and collect, by means of a
| special rate or tax, the cost of and other-

BEARS ARE PLENTIFUL
In and Around Stewart Three Bears
Shot on Sunday by One Man.
S. Harrison returned from Stewart
this morning after a visit to a couple
6f the mines there. He reports everything being very favorable. He was in
Stewart Mine and the Portland Wonder.
On Sunday a resident of the town shot
three bears, one black and two brown.
These animals are quite numerous in the
mining town having come down from
the mountains in search of berries and
other food and when they hit the camp
they hang around for the refuse from the
tents and houses. Mr. Harrison says
he saw a black bear on Ninth street.
He did not have a gun so he did not try
conclusions with the hugger. There is
a party of mining men in the town representing large financial interests. They
are waiting for the prospectors to come
down from their new fields before they
decide on any movement. As yet only
one or two have returned to the ca np
and they say the strike is good although
it is not free milling gold.

LOCAL IMPROVEMENT TAXATION
The question of taxation for local improvements now before the city council is
one of the most difficult problems requiring their consideration and decision. The
principle of raising funds by general tax, local improvement district tax, or frontage
tax is practically the same, being merely a difference of limitation or area effected.
In either plan it is apportioning the burden, but in the working out of each, details
arise which will materially effect the general result.
Elsewhere in this issue there is published in full clause 256 of the Municipal
clauses act which shows the wide scope the council has in the method of meeting the
cost of local improvements. These various plans are permitted for the very obvious
reason that all are good for certain classes of work and under certain conditions.
For instance the construction of sewers on the frontage plan is best for the reason
that only the property using that sewer is benefittea but if the city has gutters
. emptying into that sewer then the corporation should contribte to the amount of
which the public highway is benefitted. In case of a trunk sewer where some street
has a much more expensive sewer than necessary for that one street, in order to
carry off the product of branch sewers, then the whole district benefitted should
be taxed.
In the building of permanent streets the benefit derived takes a different form.
The cutting out of a hill on Second Ave., or the filling in of a low spot on Third, the
making of a first-class highway on the principal avenues is a direct benefit and convenience to everyone in the city. Naturally a first-class street will enhance the value
of a lot fronting upon it but that value is only the result.of the public appreciating
the advantage of good roads and sidewalks. The benefit to the property is secondary.
Thus it would seem that the general tax for road improvement is the most equitable.
The difficulty the city council encounters on the general tax plan is that it is
necessary to receive the assent of the electors, after having prepared and published
a by-law outlining the scheme. Under the improvement district plan or the frontage plan the work can be done without the assent of the electors but it means that the
whole amount must be charged to the property. The city cannot assume a proposition over $15,000 without the assent of the electors.
Haste in commencing the permanent street work is most commendable but a good
principle should not be satisfied to gain a few weeks' time.
The system adopted now will effect the city for a long time but the gain  of a
month on the commencement of the work will be forgotten before winter.
A very important point which should not be over-looked in adopting the plan
of taxation is the G. T. P. assessment of upwards of seven millions of dollars. In
two or three years when the road is completed this will be lost���the property will be
exempt. On the frontage plan of taxation for roads that assessment cannot be reached, and on the district plan only a small portion of it Would be taxed while on the
general assessment plan the G. T. P. would pay a big portion of the cost until such
time as they become exempt. No person, firm or corporation can better afford
to contribute towards the construction of permanent roads here and it will be working no hardship or injustice in getting a good contribution from the company that is
getting millions out of local real estate. No doubt the G. T. P. would like to see
the frontage tax.
COUNCIL HELD SHORT SESSION.
Few   Small   Matters   came   up   and
Then Committee Work.
A very short session of the council
was held last night when a couple of
small matters were dealt with. The
council then resolved itself into committee of the whole to discuss the local
improvement plan with the city solicitor.
A communication was received from
Premier Laurier acknowledging the
mayor's invitation to visit Prince Rupert
this summer. He accepted the invitation and stated that while his visit
would be short it would be a pleasure
for him to come and it was a duty.
Local Option Letter
D. Spencer, superintendent of the
Temperance League in British Columbia,
wrote stating that a large committee
in Prince Rupert were moving to have
the Canada Liquor act acted upon here
so that the citizens would have the right
to say yes or no as to whether the liquor
traffic should be allowed in Prince
Rupert. The letter will be acknowledged and this request will be dealt
with in due time.
Aid. Hilditch moved that the letter
be placed on file. He did so because Mr.
Spencer expressed the hope that the
council would give the people free
speech on this question. He considered
that  clause  an  insult  to  the council.
A petition was received from residents of Seventh avenue asking the
council to plank the road on Seventh
avenue from Fulton street to McBride
street.���Referred to the streets committee.
The   finance   and   assessment   com
mittee reported recommending that accounts amounting to $54 be paid.���
Carried.
The   council   then   went   into   committee on the local improvement system.

ublicity Club Ha. an Interesting
I Meeting -Amalgamation With the
Board of Trade and Several Other
| Subjects Diccuased.
II, ,,,:, :ai meeting of the publicity
held in its new quarters the Mining
^elation Exchange last night, was
til attended and the members showed
enlivened interest in the several
Ljeets brought forward for discussion.
��of tin* K'83 the advisability of the
b uniting with the board of trade,
[���ich was introduced by a letter from
ipokanc addressed to Mr. Christie and
L by the secretary. This suggested
���hat a boosters" club lacked the digliity
Ld force of a board of trade and that in-
Lead'of a publicity club, the work of
Ihich was a necessity in every live
Immunity, ii was advisable for the
Lard of trade to have a publicity
Bmmittee, By this arrangement there
IfOilld be more coni|)lete harmony and
two organizations could afford to
lay a liberal salary to a man thoroughly
lapable as a publicity man as secretary
If the board of trade.
Several members who are also mem-
lers of the  Board   of   Trade at  first
���emed to think the suggestion a good
|jne, Mr. Stephens, the present secretary
f the board, being one who favored it,
8 he thought one secretary could do the
kork of both organizations if  he  demoted his whole time to it.   But there
|��ere members of the  Publicity  club,
t.H. Clarke, thepresident, among them,
hho did not take kindly to the suggestion that the club should be "gobbled,
lip" by the board of trade. Furthermore
ft was pointed out  that  not  all  the
members of the club were eligible for
membership in the board of trade under
|ts incorporation constitution.
It was further  shown   that   Prince
Rupert had need of both bodies.   They
tad them in other cities and both gave
excellent service, as they did here, but
Forked in the public interest on separate
lines altogether.   They might share the
ppense of a paid secretary but should
remain separate institutions.
Then came up the question of rais-
pg the clubs membership dues to the
"ame figure as that of the  Board of
Trade.   The president thought it was
��tter to retain their present low dues
1 as to have as large a membership
I Possible, as each member became an
advertising  force   ,-��� the community.
P��. Helgerson and others supported this
���point of view, and it was conceded that
R club's roster could be doubled in a
hery short time if members invited their
friendsl0 Join and showed a real activity
p that direction.

MILLIONS FOR CANADA
Constant Transfer of American Capital Becomes Amazing
While every large investment of
British capital in Canadian enterprises
is attended by publicity, few persons
realize the far greater significance of
the constant transfer of American capital to the Dominion. At the present
moment American settlers are bringing
into the country an amount of money
which, it is estimated, will amount to
$150,000,000 at the end of this year.
The investment of American manufacturing capital is increasing as never
before. At the same time the imports
of American merchandise into Canada
are larger than ever. Although American exports to the United Kinddom,
Prance, Germany, Belgium and the
Netherlands decreased during April 1,
the exports to Canada increased by one-
third. Canadian purchases in the American markets in April amounted to
$6,670,920.
This clearly shows that a large amount
of the American capital brought in by
settlers is returned to the United States
for the purchase of American goods
with which the settler is familiar.
At the same time the proportion of this
capital which remains in Canada is
larger than the proportion of that sent
over from England or from the United
States for investment in Canadian railways, mines or manufacturing enterprises.
In the latter Canadian industry still
iB more or less dependent upon foreign
machinery. The agriculturist, however,
finds it necessary upon settling in the
Canadian West to make a large direct
expenditure on his land, followed by a
considerable out lay for buildings. The
American settler particularly is not content, like his forefather to establish
himself is a slab sided shack, but must
house himself comfortably and permanently.
Many persons competent to judge consider this exodus of American capital to
Canada to be as important to the United
States as gold exportation to England
which is so much talked about and to
which the stock market frequently
seems responsive. The best opinion here
is that the money situation this fall
in the American Middle West will be
rendered even more stringent than
usual   because   of   the   withdrawal   of
capita! by Americans settling in Canada. The complaints of Chicago and
Minneapolis bankers already have been
heard here.
The process works out in this way:
A prosperous farmer in Minnesota, the
Dakotas, Nebraska or some other western state decides to sell his farm and
emigrate to Canada. He usually finds a
customer in a neighbor. The farmer not
only withdraws from his local bank all
his cash capital, but his neighbor usually applies to the same bank for a
loan with which to make the purchase.
Immediately the purchase is paid the
emigrant carries the  cash  to  Canada.
It has been estimated reliably that
every man, woman and child settling
in Canada brings into the country on
an average of $1000. Since the emigration from the UnitedJStates to the prairie
provinces is expected to amount to 150,-
000 persons this year, the flow of capital across the border will be enormous
even compared with the direct investment   of   British   Capital   in   Canada.
Mr. William MacKenzie, who, with
Mr. Daniel Mann, controls the Canadian Northern Railway', its affiliated
steamship lines and many other large
more to come.

fronts; or for connecting any or all
buildings on such land or real property
with a branch sewer, or for making all
necessary house or building connections
therewith; or for laying a sewer pipe
across a vacant space from the line of the
street to the building, and under such
building if requisite. And notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the
Council may assess or levy and collect
the said amount so settled or determined,
either before or after the commencement
or completion of the work, as a special
rate or tax in addition to all others upon
the land or the real property so to be
connected or so connected; and in default of the owner or agent of such land
or real property paying such amount
within sixty days after demand, the
same may be recovered, with costs and
expenses connected therewith, in a
summary manner from such owner, or
by sale of the property. The Council
may distribute the payment of the
amount assessed or levied under this
section over a series of years, as provided in sub-section (17) hereof:
(12.) In any case where, in order to
afford an outlet for the sewerage and
drainage of land or real property other
than that fronting or abutting upon the
street in which a main or common sewer
is constructed, or shall hereafter be constructed, such main or common sewer is
or shall be constructed of a larger capacity than that which is, in the opinion
of the Council, required for the efficient
sewerage and drainage of the land or
real property fronting or abutting upon
the street, then, and in every such
case, the Council may impose a special
assessment and levy a special rate tax
upon the other land or other real
property benefited, or to be benefited,
by the construction of such sewer:
(13.) In all cases where a main or
common sewer is or shall hereafter be
laid in any street or through any lot or
land, the Council shall have power to
pass a by-law, and thereby to assess,
levy and collect a special rate or tax
per foot frontage upon the lots(except
corner lots)on each side of the portion
of the said street, or on the lands on each
side of the said main or common sewer,
in which or through which the said main
or common sewer shall from time to
time be laid. In case any of such lots
are earner lots, then such corner lots
shall only be assessed at one-half the
said rates:
(14.) The Council may by by-law
provide an equitable mode of assessing
for local improvements, works and services, corner lots, triangular or other
irregular shaped pieces of land situated at the intersections or junctions
of streets, having due regard to the
situation, value, and superficial area
of such lots as compared with adjoining lots and pieces of land assessable for
such improvements, works and services,
and may charge the amount of any
allowance made on any such lot or piece
of land on the other land or the real
property fronting on the improvements,
or assume the saine as a portion of the
municipality's share of the work or
improvement:
(15.) Where the lands on either side
of the street, lane, or alley, in the opinion of the Council, are from any cause
unfit for building purposes, and the
Council deem it inequitable to assess
the same for local improvements at as
high a rate as the lands fit for building
purposes fronting on the said street,
lane or alley, the Council shall in all
such cases determine in what proportion
the cost of any such improvements
shall be borne by the lands fit for building purposes and the lands unfit for
building purposes on each side of said
street, lane or alley, respectively:
(16.) Where it shall,  in the opinion 1
of the Council, be deemed expedient or
necessary to construct or repair bridges
or culverts on any street, lane or alley, j
or to open up and extend any street, |
lane, or alleyfwithln the limits thereof) [
for   the   more   immediate   convenience'
or benefit of any locality (within such ,
limits), and if the Council is of opinion
that from any cause it is inequitable to I
charge the whole of the cost of improvement on the lands fronting thereon,
the Council shall determine what lands
are benefited by such works or improvements, and the proportion in which the
cost thereof shall be assessed against
;the lands so benefited:
(17.) In the event of the Council
deciding to distribute the payment
of the costs of such works over a series
of years, they may pass all by-laws
necessary for the purpose of borrowing
moneys to defray the whole of the expenses thereof (nothwithstanding that
the Council may propose to contribute
to such expenses by way of allowance
rebate or otherwise) upon debentures
(called "Local Improvement Debentures") secured by special rates upon the
lands or real property (in the opinion
of the Council by by-law expressed) benefited by such works; and no such
by-law or by-laws shall require the assent
of the electors before the final passing
thereof.
No petition, as required by section
69 hereof, shall be necessary, and the
Council may, in order to facilitate the
negotiation of any such debentures, declare that the debt or any portion thereof, is further guaranteed by the Corporation at large: 1900, c. 23, s. 33;
1902, c. 52, s. 55.
(18.) The total amount of the estimated cost of such proposed works(as
herein contemplated)may be assessed,
levied, and collected prior to the commencement of the actual work of construction of such works, and the Council
may pass all necessary by laws defining
the terms, times, and modes of payment
thereof and otherwise for the purpose
of providing the means of making such
assessments,  levies,  and  collections:
(19.) In any case where the Council
affirms by a two-thirds vote thereof
that the constructiong, erecting, or
making of any bridge, culvert, embark-
ment, or laying, making, enlarging, or
prolonging or constructing any common
sewer, or connecting any real property
with such sewer, or opening, widening,
prolonging, constructing or altering,
macadamizing, grading, levelling, paving or planking any street, alley, public
way, or place, or any sidew.alk, or any
bridge forming part of a highway thereon,
or curbing and sodding or planting any
street, lane, alley, square, or other public
place, or reconstructing any work hereby provided for, benefits the municipality
at large, and that it would be inequitable
to raise the whole cost of such improvement or work by local special assessments, the Council may pass a by-law
for borrowing money by the issue of debentures upon the credit of the municipality at large, to provide, as the corporation's share of the cost of such improvement or work, an amount not
exceeding one-half of the whole cost
thereof; but such by-law shall require
the assent of the electors before the final
passing thereof; but nothing in this subsection shall be construed as a bar or to
prevent the Council from borrowing
money upon the credit of the municipality at large to pay the total cost
of such work, provided a by-law for that
jiurpose receives the assent of the persons entitled to vote upon by-laws for
contracting debts:
(20.) Provided always, that neither
the requirements of a two-thirds vote
by section 69 hereof, nor the assent of
the electors to the by-law borrowing
the whole of the cost or the municipality's
share of such improvements or works,
shall be necessary where the municipality's share of the cost does not exceed
the sum of fifteen thousand dollars.
Nothing in this sub-section shall be
construed as authorizing an extension
of the general debt of the City beyond
the amounts fixed by this Act: 1902,c.
52,s. 56.
(21.) If in the case of the construction
or repair of a bridge or culvert, or the
opening up and extension of any street,
lane, or alley, the Council shall determine what land or real property, other
than that fronting or abutting upon the
street, lane, or alley whereon or wherein
the i mprovement is made, or to be made,
is especially benefited, and ought to
be charged with a part of the cost thereof, and shall determi ne the proportion
in which the cost of the improvement
shall be assessed against the lands so
: benefited, the Council may assess and
'levy the proportion of the cost of the
J improvement chargeable against the
lands benefited, but not fronting or
\ abutting upon such street, lane, or adey,
j by a frontage rate in like manner as the
' same would be assessed and levied in the
\ case of lands fronting or abutting upon
the street, lane, or alley whereon or
1 wherein the improvement is made or to
( be made:
(22) No  such  local  improvement  as
aforesaid, except branch sewers and the
: work provided for in sub-section.--(lO) and
(11) of this section, shall be undeitaken
' by the Council if the majority of the
| owners of the land or real property to be
j assessed or charged in respect of such
j work, representing at least one-half in
: value thereof, petition the council again-
J st such assessment within fifteen days
' after the Council shall have published
a notice signifying its intention of mak-
j ing such assessment, in one newspaper
I published   in   such   municipality;   any
; leaseholder,   the  term  of  whose   lease
(including any renewals therein provided
I for) is not less than twenty-one years,
shall be deemed an owner within the
! meaning of this sub-section, if the lessee
, has therein covenanted to pay all munici-
I pal taxes on the demised property dur-
! ing the term of the said lease:
(23.) The number of owners petition-
: ing against the assessment, and the value
of the land or the real property which
they represent, may be ascertained and
finally determined in such manner and
by such means as are provided by bylaw in that behalf.   1896, c. 37, s. 240.
(24.) The   Council  may,   by  by-law,
determine what proportion (if any) of
the cost of a work of local improvement
within the municipal limits, not exceeding  one-half  of such  cost,  the  muni-
| cipality shall contribute, and may make
such contribution in one or more, but
not exceeding twenty, annual payments,
out of any of the municipal revenue for
) twenty or lesser number of years.   1902,
c. 52, s. 57.
(25.) For the purpose of enabling
: Councils to avoid the necessity of making supplementary assessments or of
refunding in case of over assessments,
and for the purpose of ascertaining the
; exact cost of any work or improvement
done or constructed as a local improvement under the provisions of this Act, the
Council of any Municipality may make
agreements with any bank, or with any
person or body corporate, for temporary
advances and loans for meeting the cost
of the work and improvement, until the
completion thereof, and may in their
option make the special assessments for
the cost thereof, after the work or improvement has been completed, and may
then pass the necessary by-law authorizing the issue of debentures to repay the
amount of the temporary loan or advance, as well as to provide the balance
of cost; such by-law shall provide for the
repayment of the loan and the maturing
of the debentures within the proper life
of the work or improvement as certified by the proper officers appointed for
the purpose, and should such by-law be
; set aside or quashed the Council may
i cause a new assessment or assessments
| to be made, and pass new by-laws to
provide funds for the payment of the
debt so incurred.
