It is not necessary to show that the city could operate the system at a great deal leas expense than the company. The present council, with the ex- ception of Aid. Cunningham, setm in favor of moving the plant to the ri- ver-bottom and the bylaw provides about fifty thousand dollars frr this work. But it is l.y no means settled that this shall be done. It will ixj tle- cided when it is seem whether or not the plant can be operated satisfac- torily at the present site. Many are of the opinion that it can be done nnd if that is so, only n, small por- tion of the fifty thousand will have to be spent in providing a suitable building and necessary improvements. Now, as to the price, Cecil Smith in his report places the value of the power house equipment at the transmission line at the site at and the small sundries approximately to- tal The company, judging its valuation, from their stock-taking inventory' have placed the n'gxires re- spectively at a total of or a difference of about The Company in their letter to Council sakl that they could not rec- ognize the report of 3Ir.

Only one boiler will have to bo replorrd. They point out that he places the value of the line at but says that a new line would cost The Com- pany in this regard point out that the metres are all new. the transfor- tners are of tht; best and have been put in during the last few years, and some recently. The pole line hns been renewed and worth having in .the service of his country. The city needs a new stand pipe once. The present .-one is goin? ruin because it is impossible to laivcj it empty long enough to scrape mid1 paint it to pro-vent the that is going on constantly.
