Th** examination was deferred until Mr. Perry Would answer definitely whether or not he would examine the <viling as an ex|***rt. (’hark* B.

The contractor had also gairn-d in not having to Inver old brick work w ith cut stone. The ceiling was weak as was shown by the fact that it had already settled. No support was given the wails as required, and the condition of the building is menacing ami unsafe. The cost of the ceiling should lie alinit #I.VB,OOO ex«'!usive of |>apier mache, that wvMild allow a profit of aliout |s52.000.
