McNeil's new ballot, which is approved by Returning Officer P. J, Coffey, of Ottawa, is the invention of Mr. F. A. Cote, electrician, of Sorel. It differs in form nnd scheme from the one at present in use in Ottawa. The new ballot is made of a piece of stiff black cardboard about four inches .square, and on all sides arc white spaces each containing the name of a candidate. The white spaces with the names run from edge to centre, and are mnnbered consecutively. In the exact centre of the card are four white discs, one opposite each name space. AVhen the card is plac-| ed in tlie envelope wfl'icli is, supplied witli it nothing on tlie card excejit thc�e four spots is visible through the circle cut out of the centre of the covering Ou the reverse side of the card appears a circle for the returning offi-cei-'s stamp. The name of the electoral district is also there. The inspection by tho returning officer would show whether the ballot was marked properly, and yet the vote would remain secret. The new device is being submitted to the Government for consideration to substitute it for ballot paper now in use. THE FINANCES OF THIS CITY Secretary - Treasurer Robinson Furnisiies Some Interesting Figures r Acting on tho suggestion of "Taxpayer" In Saturday's paper, tho Her aid naked Secretary-Treasurer Robinson for a statement of finances and ho kindly has furnished tho following slntomenl;'- With reference to tho financial position of the City, you will find, referring to Sheet No. 1, enclosod, tho figures ns to tho total gross asses.s-mont for 1008, and how this amount is made up. Tho limit of tho city's borrowing power is shown together with tho totnl debenture debt, value of municipality's as.sets, tax rate, population and gross and net revenue ot tho watef works systems. On Sheet No. 2, j'ou will find nn analysis of both tho city's assets and tho debenture indebtedness. As to tho amount raised in ta.xcs this year. This is of 15 mills on the taxable assoesment. Tho division of the tax rato this year has been Municipal rate 9 mills, school rate 45 mills, di-benturo rato li mills In answer to tho enquiry, as to how much of the revenue is,available for city improvements, I would point out that revenue is raised merely to meet tho curi-ont annual oxpondlturo, tho cost of improvements being raised by tho issue of dehcnturcs from time to time. A statement of recipts and expenditures up to tho present will bo available in a day or two. On account of the largo amount of improvements undertaken by this year's council, the amount required next year for interest and sinking fund will naturally bo considerably increased. While, an increase in tho assessment may be made, it is quite likely that tho debenture rate will require to be raised at least 2 mills, even should the taxable ossossment bo increased to about ?4,000,000.00 next year. Any further information which the tax payfr-i of this city may require, I shnllNje very pleased to furnish SOVEREIGN BRAND CLOTH!NC Is mode by Canada's foremost Clothing House who for fifty years have enjoyed the highest reputation from Atlantic to Pacific for tho manufacture of Men's and Boy's Olothingf^.
