has been so long under discussion.
The committee .appointed by the
council to estabiish street grades

The report was an elaborate docu

details of the matter fully. The com

grade had been established to corres

order to render the construction of
the grade as cheap as possible to the
taxpayers and property owners, but
in some few instances, where ravines
were encountered, the committee lo
