Lake Shore Electric men, at that hearing, estimated the value of their pn.lJity at and thus it can be seen that the tax commission, by placing the same at made al- most a increase. The estimate on the property last year was approximately four times as large as the 1910 figures. The valuations placed by the tax commission include the street railway line in this city, but no separate fig- ures were given for the same.

With the grade-crossing abol- ishment bond issue ejection as- sured at tjhe coming general slec- tion, by the action of council Monday evening, citizens Tues- day showed renewed interest in the contemplated improvements. With this re-awakening interest were important developments, having bearing upon the proposi tion, principal among which was reliable information that al- though council calls for an aggregate issue of bonds for the abolishment of grades at three crossings, the city's share of expense will be well within that amount, la the preliminary estimates which. City Engineer King prepared and on which council's legislation was draft- ed, he made liberal allowances for all contingencies. His estimates, so councilmen say, aie higher than those prepared by the L. S. M. S. engine- ers. Furthermore, council will expect the Lake Shore Electric Ry. to pay a portion of the cost of the Columbus avenue improvement for its rights to the L. S M. S. tracks at un- der grade. The Columbus avenue es- timate is and one councilman Tuesday declared that ne oeUeved that half, or close to that amount, should be paid to the city by the inter- urban company. Council also is pre- pared to resist any "hold-ups" for damages to property adjoining the contemplated improvements. At the general election, the electors of the city will vote upon three sep- arate grade-crossing abolishment prop- ositions. By resolution adopted by council Monday night it is deemed necessary to issue and sell bonds in the sum of as the city's share of the cost of abolishing the Hayes avenue grade crossing; another deems it necessary to sell bonds in the sura of for the city's share on the Columbus avenue grade abolishment and the third declares it necessary to issue and sell bonds in the sum of for the Camp street crossing abolishment. Council passed the bond-election resolutions under suspension of the rules. In order that no question might be raised over the legislation through the application of the new initiative and, referendum law. Cfiy Solicitor Steinemann advised council to adopt the legislation as emergency measures and thus prevent the same fiom being held as inoperative for 60 days. So long a delay would prevent the submission of the question to the voters at the general election, Tues- day, November 7. As to the election, the resolutions' adopted Monday read in this manner: "That the question whether said bonds shall be issued sBall be put in the form following to-wit: j Shall the bonds of the city of sandus- kj be issued in the sum of for the purpose of defraying the city's" portion of the cost of abolishing the railroad grade ciossing at Hayes ave- nue? and those who -vote in favor of the proposition shall have written or piinted on their ballots, the words, 'For the issue of bonds.' and those who vote against it shall have writ- ten or printed on their ballots, the words.
