V - -..j-', �: �t��0tO��0�#0MO0OO�' ,in -habitant of the citj* there are a fnw details in which Ithir.k our syatom could be improved. I am aware that many of thoae are fixed by our charter, but others are not and you may see reasons for making some changes. In the first place it should not bo considered unreasonable to ask that, taxes for any j-ear be paj'-a'ble before ten months of that .vcar ara gone, onU about eighty per cent of the (axes arc spent. At present j.xsur charter makes duly 2, the date upon or before which the assessment roll must be adopted: after this the preparation of the tax bill requires conaideraible time so that it is the end of October bcfoi^ the taxes are collected, but the wholo; Arrange -ment Itppeara to be fixod at dates which, with advantage, could be made earlier and eiitail the saving of a con^idsrable sum now paid to the bank ax Interest on overdraft. ASSESSMENT. The subject of the asscssnncmt is one to which I am sure you have all given ccnsidcration. The clause in our charter allowing a super asaoss-mont on vacant lands, should bo put into oj>cnition thi8 year, to the extent, at Icasti of lots lying in the centra of the City. It would tie well also if the Fiaanco Cotnmittec coukt thci Council somo scheme for lessening, tho astsessmont on iiRr pro\-eUMyHts, which wculd maka unprofitable the holding of lands for sp^ulativopurposes to tlte retarding ot our, development and the expanse of the city. In ivgiviTd to tha inspactiou of the assessntont roll, I bcliera that even one piiblicAtion of it would give much greater promin�n�> to it:, than weeiu iif inspection a,t tha clerk's office.and would altcw those who dro unable lo.mspoct without loss of time or money to do so at their leisure.

As tba value of our fire appUaneos wealth of subjects to be discuesed may not be without its value, and I am sure that if vo accon|)>liah a fair percentage of the resuHs~aiuied at. liesides others to which you will doubtless draw our attention, we will not have reason to be aahamed of our vork.
