The City Solicitor submitted a draft bylaw to cover the borrowing of for local improvements un- til such time JLS die real bylaws could be passed. He suggested that it be submitted to the judgment of Mr. Bruce, K. C., of Toronto, lor his opin- ion as to its legality. The necessity of a move of some such kind as this was explained by the Secretary-Tieas- urere to be required in order to get money to go ahead with public works and to escape paying a heavy interest while the work is being done. It -was lointed out that Winnipeg got out of. the same difficulty by securing Irom he legislature an act empowering it o borrow money for local improve- ments. At. present the city of Letb- bridge was doing wrong when it bor- rowed and the Bank of Montreal act- ed illegally in loaning money lo the cuy for public improvements. It was decided that the quickest way out of the whole business was to apply to the legislature of Alberta forthwith for similar rights.
