matter of extending tho city limits
Is ono thing that our peoplo wish to
Beo put through beforo thoy go ahead
nnd I trust that tho vote will bo fav
orable." Tlio object of tho proceeding, as

range for tho exemption of tho mill
-slto from city taxation, nil surround

tamlllar with tho details said: "Tho
advantages which nccruo to a town
"by lncrcaso In population nnd In tnx
nble property through tho develop
ment of n big Industry aro so gener
ally recognized that very frequently
n site, or a bonus or exemption from
taxation, or somo similar thing Is giv
en hv tho peoplo on condition that
tho Industry locate. Exemption from
city .taxation Is what Is being sought
In tho present caso and this means Is
taken to nBsuro that tho mill slto will
not bo tnken into tho city."
