have cost the city over a million and a
half dollars.

We come before you asking that you will
dig this canal in the name of the city, using
the legal power which we understand is
granted you as a city. The owners of
flooded lands stand ready and willing to
bear the greater part of the expense and are
waiting to know if subscriptions shall be
made payable to the city or not.

The evil consequences of the failure to
give relief at this time are very great
