p.2 City Council - "There are now $8,000 worth of Wolfe Island Canal Debentures past due; $3,000 of these are in the Trust & Loan Co., and the City is now paying 8% per annum for them. As the city was threatened with a suit to recover the other $5,000, the Finance Committee have retired them in the meantime, with so much of the Insurance money. The matter will be brought before the Council in the Budget soon to be submitted, when some disposition must be made of these Debentures. I would advise payment of the whole $8,000 from the Insurance money, and thus pay off so much of the City Debt, and relieve the Taxpayer of $640 annually for interest..." - John Creighton, Mayor.
