Insofar aa xtrvet and aewera are concerned, but that the amendment waa ' deemed advlsablo for the reason that the old law made It possible for the general fund to he looted.

The Bancroft act makee the provl alon that a property owner who bonds hla property for the payment of the ' cost of laying a water main may agree l to make 10 auinual payments with sim ple Interest on one tenth of the face of the bond at each payment , But it doea not provide any adequate method for enforcing these payments, say Dep uty Auditor W.

It Is impossible to estimate how long he hadbeen working it. He started the tunnel In the cellar of a vacant house a few doors from bis home. It took him weeks , to laboriously remove sacks of dirt from the hole. Me had to back put,, as the tunnel was not big enough for him to tarn round.
