of that embraced within t'tq

been hanging fire for nearly a jcar

Service has shown in the matter of
releasing tho lands Indicates that It
has no desire to sec an abrogation
of the contract entered Into at the
time of the creation of the Dlsrlct.
The letter advising the Directors of

Whether this release Includes the

that tho district wanted, to surrender

of the contract that was really voted
upon. Tho claim that the Circuit
