M. C. A. building in part, paying rent therefor,- and will at the same time submit to the ratepayers a bylaw to raise ?48,000 bbnds to reimburse the city sinking fundr - The proposal is\that the city will take an interest in the building, and if at any time the association is able to clear up its indebtedness to the-city, the building will be turned back to them. A meeting of the "Y" guarantors and the management of the "Y" will be held shortly to discuss the following resolution^' Whereas the Y. M. C. A, borrowed from the city funds through the sink-ii>k fund committee, the sum of $40,- 000 for nve years at 7% interest, the latter of which is $6500 in deficit in three years, and Whereas it would appear that the interest charges with other expenses in connection with the tunning of that institution must be in the 'neighborhood of $10,000 per annum, which charge may reasonably, be considered as pretty nearly the limit of support it may expect regularly in various ways; from the city, without furnishing any annual income for- wiping off j the principal which now,: including' back interest, amounts to at least $46;500, and  Whereas the council are of the Jm-iression that It would not.be in tlie best interest ojt the city to press the ^arantors for payment of the debt on the Y. M. C. A. which they assumed responsibility for about three years aigo, and''' Whereas it Is thought that the substitution of d 6% 30 year equal annual Instalment bond at an annual charge of $3,487.15 per ahnuni (which would I)ay Interest charges and redeem the principal) is about the only reason-, able solution. It:;is suggested there--fbre that it might be wise for the-city to foreclose, if the Board of rub-| 1 lie Utility Commissioners, and thei I people, approved of the debenture re-1 ferred to. j Whereas the city offices are in rent-! ed quarters, it is suggested that the, city might take over sufficient space! of the front part of the basement and iirst and second floors to accommo-; date the requirements; at a reasonable rental, and in this way reduce the burden to the Y. M. C. A. to dimensions that can reasonably be carried by that institution, and �\Vhereas it would be understood that if the Y. M."C. A. kept up the payments as per the agreement that may be entered into, at the end of thirty years the Y, M. C. A. building would be turned over free to.the board of managers, ' Therefore, be it resolved that the council make arrangements to meet, the guarantors and the management; of the Y. M. C. A. with a view to discussing this matter in detail; and if satisfactorily arranged prepare a bylaw to be submitted to the Board of Public Utility Commissioners, and if approved by them, pre.sented to the people for approval for the purpose of raising, $48,000 (the bonds will sell at about 2% below par, hence the increase over $46,500) by 6% 30-Jtear equal- annual Instalment bonds, for the purpose of taking over the Y. M. C. A. and reimbursing the sinking fund. GITY AND DISTRICT Patriotic Fund The honorary treasurer, R. J. Ritchie Paterson, acknowledges receipt of $1 from W. Patterson, for the Patriotic Fund.
