P. H. main line along Smith st. to Courtland st.. with the necessary switching regulations, the condition to p ly for cost of construction of the same and to l>e remunerated therefor by charging a rate on each car passing over the trucks that will pay interest on the expenditure" or "that the corporation sanction the constuction of a railway as previously mentioned, leaving the construction of the same to those interested."
