Xhus, you 3fp, p'we spend'" iip orift year a.s much from the payers in'three years. Again. Mr. Editor, there are just 72 ratepayers in North Ward, or, if you like, the property to be improved would bt- for direct benefit of 72. Of this number 30 are non-residents of city and G reside on the south nide of the track. But in the city proper there are hundreds of ratepayers whose proper- ty has received no more benefit from the expenditure of public money than the residents of North Ward and they are in need of sidewalks just as badly, more so in fact because we have more jnud. Thf-re is not a resident in North Ward compelled to wade through more mud in poinp to and from his home than T am in poing to or from mine and so with many, more on the south ilo of the track. Do you think, then, that "Rate- payer" i.s justified in the attitude he advocates? Yon will note the proposed improvements, to raise money for which the by-laws are now before you, aro to be made in the most com- pact part of the city, that the greatest good may result to the greatest num- ber at least cost. That is economy surely. The scattered and newly built portions of the city, whether North or South of the track, must wait until we pet to them. The south side ratepayers are content to do so REV. J.
