per cent, as under f lie old charter, hut 12. Also, under on
present charier a majority oi' lite council can order pave
ment or water or sewer into a street against the protest
of a majority or all of the property owners. Under (he
new charter, if a hare majority of tho property owners
protest it can only he ordered by the unanimous vole of
all seven direcloi's.
Then look at those excellent provisions about fran
ehi.Mes and see how (hu people of the city are protected all

furthermore, I think any sensible business man ought
lo h salisfied with the fact, which cannot be disputed,
that every city in the United Stales that has adopted such
a charter has found it works first class and with a real
saving in expenses. That's enough for me.
